prize winners in the Boys' Corn club

The best yield in each State had tak
en the first prize, and the boys, none
of whom is over 16, were on a trip to
Washington. where they were to be
introduced to the president and the
secretary of agricultu.re and then be
shown the sights of the city.
It was the culmination of the year's
work, a work the importance of which
can scarcely be overestimated. It has
already awakened the South to the
knowledge that it can raise corn and
make money by it. The older far
mers 'are being startled by the way
the boys are beating them on the
corn idea and it is having a material
effect on the corn production of the
The successful boys from each State
were not always the ones that raised
the biggest crops. The department
of agriculture, in outlining the con
test, made it a requisite that the larg
est crop should be raised with the
least expenditure. The high score in
the whole group was made by Jerry
Moore. But he was not considered
the most successful. He had raised
228 3-4 bushels, but it had cost him
43 cents a bushel to do it. There was
a boy from Arkansas who raised only
119 bushels, but lhe did it at cost of
8 cents a bushel. He was considered
the real thing in "corn clubdom."
