EMERGENCY FOOD MEASURES
Clemson College, S. C., May 14.
1. One peck of 100-day velvet beans
planted in every acre of South Caro
lina corn before May 22, would re
lease for human food, the entire corn
crop, thus practically doubling in ef
fect, the corn crop of South Carolina.
2. A row of early maturing bunch
variety of cow peas planted between
each row of corn, even though velvet
beans be planted in corn rows, would
produce 10,000,000 bushels of peas for
human food and greatly cut down the
necessity for costly meat diets.
3. Lima beans planted beside all
fences and in fence corners, would
yield in dry beans enough to largely
eliminate our importation of such

Brabhami variety, the tlrst maturing
peas picked and threshed and the

While it is not profitable to bag in
a commercial vineyard, it will al
ways prove successful in a home
vineyard. By bagging the ripening
period can be held back for two weeks.
Besides, when grapes are thoroughly

rotting. Bagging keeps birds and
