DURING SUMMER SCHOOL
During the Short Course for Wo
men, July 4-16 inclusive the subject
f citizenshi will be emphasized. This
subject is full of interest for every
one, and again we would say the- of
ferings of the Short Course are open,
not only to those who come especially
for the course, but to all attending
the summer school.
This session the course in citizen
ship will emphasize several phases of
government. The women of the
country are now giving aprticular at
tention to legislation, both national
and state. It is therefore well that
they discuss in detail in this course
the subject of congress and the state
legislature, studying their organiza
tion, the.ir methods and procedure, and
the way in which we proceed in order
to get our legislation passed. This
would also include a discussion of the
provisions of those bills which wo
men's organizations throughout the
country have endorsed, such as the
Sheppard-Towner and the Smith
Further, women are turning their
attention to matters of local govern
ment, especially to city and town gov
ernment, and they are considering
thoughtfully the problems of munici
pal housekeeping. This means that
women must become familiar with the
xisting form of government and learn
iow that government may be im
proved. The commission form and
the City Manager plan will, very
naturally then, be discussed in this
Whatever seems needed by the
group of women gathered in class will
loubtless be discussed. Certainly wo
men, if they are to become vital fac
tors for better conditions, must have
i clear knowledge of what takes place
within the "inner circle" of a party
n order that they may successfully
:.ombat and overcome any pernicious
forces. This would mean that the
group discuss local, state, and nation
it committees, campaign funds, etc.,
And ways in which to successfully
revent fraud at elections.
%BOUT THE SWEET POTATO
IN CLARENDON COUNTY
Since we have been assured that
;here will be a plant for curing and
storing your sweet potatoes in Mann
ng and possibly other points in the
:ounty next fall, I feel that I should
tgain call attention to certain details
-egarding this crop.
Annially from ten to fifteen imil
ions of bushels of sweet potatoes are
ost due to diseases. Most of this big
oss can be prevented. Since all bed
ling was done sometime ago, I will
ot at this time discuss the matter of
ising disease free seed, treating the
;eed and so on. But I (o wish, again
.o emphasize the matter of using
ines for planting. It has been found
)y the commercial growers that the
line cuttings usually produce more
narketabie potatoes per acre, and they
are more likely to be free from
lisease. I find that as a rule it is not
)rofitable to put out your sweet po
atoes too early. This gives them too
ong a growing period and a big pelr
-entage of the potatoes will grow en
irely too large and often crack open.
I'here is, therefore, plenty of time yet
'or planting this crop, in fact the best
ime is yet to come.
I find that the sweet potato is a
rop that does well phadaed ion fairly
hin land and liberally fertilized with
conmnercial fertilizer. In fact, I pre
er this to the very fertile soils or to
he use of stable manures. An 8-3-3
ertilizer is very largely used for the
;weet potato crop, but I am convinced
hat on our soils a fertilizer contain
nig more potash than this would be
)rofitable. An 8-:t-6 would probably
lot be too high grade a fertilizer to
iso profitably. As we know, root
-rop)s are heavy users of potash. One
~an readily malke this fertilizer by
tddmi g some form o fpotash to the
ower grade mixture.
I would advise closer lalnting thayp
s the rule. Plants set from twelve
o fourteen inches apart will average
urning out more numb~er one pota
oes than those given eighteen to
w(ent y inches or space.
.I will later in the season have some
himg to say regarding the harvesting,
~radmbg and storing of this cr01p.
