BOY CORN GROWERS
Delivered by Secretary Wilson,
Who Says Event Is More Im?
portant Than Inauguration.
Washington, January 2?? "This is a
?Ml more important event than th?
inauguration of a new President of
the IHited States,'" said Secretary of
Agriculture Wilson, looking over the
group of "corn club" boys who crowded
his office rttis morning. Thirty-five
boys and one girl, she being Viola
Lewis of Arkansas, one of the canning
cluh girls, were assembled ahou* th
t utiinet offleer Miss Lewis was ac?
companied by her mother as it chup
attM There were several women In
the party one of them. Mrs. Bridges,
of Dawson. Oa., was also acting as
chaperon for a rolte of a corn club
hoy who hail raised next to the atggesl
' ri>>> in (jeorgiu He was Walter
Bridges, his yield being 1S? bushels la
'e He was the smallest member
of the whole party
Mr Taylor, the assistant chief of the
Bureau of Plant Industry, asked him
how he reached any of the ears on a
eaVMaglki and Walter replied confi?
dently. ' jest stretched "
It is certuln he did his stretching
after the corn was cut down, for he
was not much more than thirty-six
inches high at a liberal estimate.
Byron Bolton. from the aame State,
raised 177 bushels, but Walter had the
whole party beaten for minimum size
Importance of Work.
Secretary Wilson made quite a long
talk to the boys and impressed them
with the importance of heir work and
the value to them personally of handling
tangible things and getting in actual
touch with ?he work of feeding the
world In which they were already
taking an appreciable part
The Secretary handed each of the
boys a certificate from the department,
signed by himself, certifying the yield
made by the young corn grower
After the meeting was over the Secre?
tary the boys and a few members of
Congress, college pr-ifeseors and others
aaljourned to the south steps of the
administration building and had a
photograph taken The whole party'
'hen left for the Capitol in charge of
0 H Benson,of the of Are of farm
' management, and O. B. Martin, of
Kalsed Greatest Crops,
i This was a good year for eorn
throughout the country, but the high
?'"it of 207 bushels did not quite reach
the boy's record for the department
207-bushel yield was made by
, Krnest M. Joyce, of Venters. 8. C. He
. was closely pushed by Ernest Heddock
of Nummerland, Miss . who raised 20?
bu?hels. But the general uwerage was
higher than ever before. There were
more boys and more States represented
in the competition, and 4M boys scored
? rops of more than 100 bushels to the
acre This was considered by ihe
off!. ia!s a remarkable showing, and is
Just about four times the average of
the crop for the whole country.
The one little girl visitant was the
sole representative of the girls' canning
Oiling She had not devoted her entire
aasi of ground to tomato culture, as
end inany of the girls, but had raised
a succession of crops, tomatoes, beans
and turnips She sold some of her pro
dm e fre.b and canned the rest She
t, : l I gal a tenth of an acre as had the
other girls, and made 153 off it.
Reports and pictures of many girls
winners, who did not come to Wash?
ington have been received by the de?
Victor in Tennessee.
, Mertie Hardin was the Sta'e winner
in Tennessee in a competition partici?
pated in by ll.OOU girls The State had of?
fered a prize of a thoroughbred Jersey
calf for the best all-around display of
canned preserved and pickled fruit and
: vegetables, and the best essay on the
story of the crop. Miss Hardin won the
first individual prize, and in addition
won two other individual prizes, a flre
i less cooker and a Mil glass bowl.
The business men and the communi?
ties all over the States where the girls'
, clubs are operating are enthusiastic
over the work, and there are plenty of
State, country and club prizes to be
