TO BEAT JERRY'S RECOR?
Greenville County Boy Stands aid
Chance, Says Expert.
Greenville, Aug. 4.-That a Green
ville county corn club boy stands a
splendid chance of raising the cham
pion acre of corn in the State, if
not in the South, and thereby eclips
ing the record of Jerry Moore, was the
opinion voiced today by Clemson col
lege experts and Senator B. R Till
man. Special Agent C. B. Haddon, of
Clemson college, Senator Tillman and
other parties made a trip today in the
upper section of Greenville county,
for the purpose of inspecting one acre
of corn being grown by Edgar S. Ber
ry, a 16-year-old lad living on the
farm of J. R. Childress, of Greenville.
The experts viewed thoroughly the
acre of growing corn, made calcula
tions as to the possible yield, took
photographs of the corn and made ar
rangements for having the corn meas
ured, weighed and analyzed for mois
ture. At the conclusion of his inves
tigation, Mr. Haddon said that the
most conservative estimate that could
be made of the po.sible yield was two
hundred bushels. He further stated
that the corn was the best that he
-had seen in the upper section of the
State, and surpassed the famous corn
on the farm of Judge J. S. Fowler, of
"There is a strong probability," said
Mr. Haddon, "of the yield exceeding
that of Jerry Moore's prize patch." A
conservative estimate of the number
of stalks growing op. the acre was
placed at 14,000 and there are from
one and one-quarter to two. ears of
corn on every stalk. The acre was
planted with two varieties of seed, the
Hastings Prolific and the Marlboro
