GROWING SWEET POTATOES.
An Easily Grown. Profitable Crop For
Clemson College.?There are few
crops so well adapted to South Carolina
conditions that can be grown
with equal success and profit as can
the sweet potato. This crop offers to
the grower every advantage that is
offered by other fields or truck crops,
says Geo. P. Hoffman, Extension Service
Soil selection, preparation, fertilizing,
careful fitting and planting, and
cultivating are the essentials of success
in the growing of a crop of
i sweet potatoes.
Soil: The sweet potnto adapts Iti
self to a great diversity of soils, but
j it delights in and thrives best on a
I woll drained c.flndv or ClftV loam UH
! derlaid with a clay subsoil. But rej
gardless of the apparent ideal physi:
cal condition of the soil, this crop
I must be rotated each year. Sweet
I potatoes may follow corn, cotton,
| small grain, and leguminous cover
| crops, and may be easily and effect!
ively worked into any well balanced
| three-year rotation system.
1 Preparation of Soil: The soil may
be thoroughly and deeply prepared by
| turning twice to a depth of 6 to 8
; inches, followed by cross discing.
! Crooked and irregularly formed roots
result from shallow preparation of the
soil. Therefore, deep and thorough
preparation is very essential in the
growing of marketable potatoes.
Fertilizers: Both barnyard manure
and commercial fertilizers are recomI
mended, but the former must be judiciously
used. Because of present
I shortage of potash the element of plant
J food most needed in excess in potato
nw\Hnptlnn HhorflT annlications of
barnyard manure will be found to be
very effective in helping to reduce this
shortage and to correct the physical
condition of the soil. The fertility
and physical condition of the soil
should determine the amount of the
applications. Ordinarily, both commercial
fertilizers and barnyard manureg
are applied in the drill, when
the soil is being fitted for setting the
plants, andr later, as a side dresser.
Fitting the Soil and Setting the
Plants: Preparatory to setting the
plants.lay off rows 3% to 4 feet apart
and apply the barnyard manure (8 to
10 tons per acre) or commercial fertilizer
made of two-thirds 16% acid
phosphate apd one-third cotton-seed
meal applied in . the drttl at the rate
of 400 to 600 pounds per acre, and
thoroughly mix with the soiL The
planting beds of medium height, depending
upon frainage, should be
thrown up and Mragged down. The
plants or vine-cifttingB should be set
114 to 18 inches apart The period for
I setting the plants is from May 1 to
July 15th. To correct the packed condition
of the soil brought aboat
through the transplanting process,
the water furrows should be harrowed
or otherwise shallow, cultivated immediately
following the setting of the
For late plantings, the one-leaf vine
cuttings 8 to 18 Inches long are more
des'irablt than are .the slips or
"draws," this being especially true In
the growing of seed stock.
. Varieties: Nancey Hal], Porto
Rico, and Triumph ^are the leading and
most popular varieties grown in this
State. Triumph is one of the earlielt
varieties, and >hguld be planted when
potatoes are grown for early market.
Cultivation: Frequent shallow
cultivation should be practiced
until the vines, have covered the
ground, during which period the
greatest of qire must be exercised in
the turning tbe vines. At the first
cultivation, which consists of a careful
hoeing and siding with a broad
furrow, a side dressing of a mixture
of one-third cottonseed meal and twothirds
16 per cent add phosphate
should be applied at the rate of 400 to
00 pounds per acre, and thoroughly
mixed with the soil. The Orangeburg
sweep or heel bow and shovel will be
found to be very effective in cultlvatr
ing this crop.
A Record of Profits: The following
record of expenditures and returns on
an acre of sweet potatoes in 1917-18
was furnished us by a grower in Richland
County, South Carolina, the crop
having been produced in 1917 and
marketed during the late winter and

All deep cultivation should be dona
j before the seed are put in. The foen^
j fits of shallow cultivation are:
1. It prevents formation of shallow
I crust on the surface.
2. It forms a dust rauVch. which
' prevents loss of soil moisture.
3. It lets air into the soil.
4. It makes plant food available.
5. It destroys weeds and grass before
they get a firm hold in the soil.

The first objective of this cam- '
paign is to secure 1,000,000 . Associ- 1
ate Members of the National Coun- 1
cil, Boy Scouts of America as an as- '
surance of enlarged usefulness.
This Associate Membership is offered
to mother and fathers of American
boys and other adult American
citizens upon payment of $1.00 ;
or more as membership dues; in effect
and in spirit a contribution to 1
the Movement, the amount to be de- 1
termined by each individual. The Associate
Membership, however, is an
actual legal laentincation witn tner
National body, without voting privil-'
eges which, by the constitution and 1
by-laws of the Boy Scouts of America,
belong only to regularly elected '
members of the National Council. (
It is expected that besides the fi- 1
nancial support which this new mem- "
bership will give the organization ]
many associate members will volun- '
teer as scoutmasters, assistant &out
.masters, members of troop committees
and member of local councils; (

Clemson College, May 28.?The
principal complaint reaching the bee
keeping specialist at this time is in
reference to the excessive swarming.
Swarming is mainly due to a crowded
conditon of the hive, and when
the bees are in box gums there is
nothing one can do except to let i
them swarm and hive them accord-'
ing to any one of the old and an-!
tiquated methods. The chief work
of the beekeeping specialist during j|
the entire spring has consisted in |
lelpnig people to transfer from box surp
juma to frame hives. One of the italn
igents wrote, "Great has been the then
iestruction of box gums last week." that

the transferring from the box gums this
to the ten-frame hives. The ten(x
frame hives may be purchased while

well seasoned lumber. When these

ten that they shobld be the standard sc^0
