HOW FARER BOYS
CAN FIGHT KAISER
BRYAN WILLINGHAM, STATE
PRIZE WINNER IN BOYS' CORN
CLUB CONTESTS FOR 1917,
SETS THE PACE.
Columbia.-What one boy can do,
another can do. There should be an
American boy to match every German
boy in producing food to feed the ar
mies fighting at tto front and the fam
ilies of the soldiers left at home. In
Germany the boys are working. On
the farms in America, from which so
many men have gone to take their
places in the fighting line, there is a
great opportunity for patriotic service
for the farm boys not yet old enough
to fight ' ith a gun. Their weapons
are the pww and the hoe.
Bryan, Villi ngham, of Winnsboro,
Fairfield cunty, lirst State prize win.
ner in the lloys' Corn Club contest for
1917, has set the pace for the farmer
boys of South Carolina. What Bryan
Willingham has done, other boys in
South Carolina can do.
Bryan is seventeen years of age. lie
has been a member of the Corn Club
for several years. lIe has on more
than one occasion won in his county
contest. In 1915 he won a scholarship
to a short course in agriculture offer
ed by Clemson College. In 1916 he
attended the short course, when he
received valuable scientific knowledge
of soils, plants and cultural methods,
which, coupled with his practical
knowledge, he has applied to his farm.
ing overations with marked success.
He has learned well the importance
of deep and thorough preparation of
the seed-bed, the value of humus in
the soil, and of good and well-selected
seed. He has learned the value of
commercial fertilizers and how to ap
ply them for best results; the value
of frequent and shallow cultivation,
and the injurious effect of pulling the
blades or fodder from the corn.
With these important principles
well fixed in his mind, he started out
with the determination of eucceeding,
and he did so, producing 157.8 bushels
of corn on one acre at a cost of 17.6
cents per bushel. His net profit was
This being the best record made
by any member of the Boys' Corn
Club in South Carolina in 1917, Bryan

The past achievements of this
young farmer have fired him with a
determination to do even greater
things.. He will continue in the club
work in 1918. after which it is his
purpose to attend Clemson College
and take the complete agricultural
course to fit himself for successful
farming. which lie proposes to make
his life wor'k.
Bryan Willingham's achievement
should prove an. inspiration to the
farmer boys of South Carolina.
FARMERS URGED TO
PLANT LATE CORN
Columbia.-After grain is harvested,
every available acre of good land
should ibe planted in late corn, says
the Food Administration. The Con
servation and Production Division of
the Food Administration has secured,
for the benefit of those who will plant
late corn, expert advice.
Corn can be successfully grown, ac
cording to Clemson College experts,
from Columbia to the coast when
planted by the middle of June. There
is yet time, therefore, if corn is plant.
ed after the grain crop is harvested,
to add largely to the corn acreage in
South Carolina, which is greatly desir
Only good land should be plante8
in late corn, however. rThe poorer
landl can be made to produce food by
planting cow pens and peanuts.
it is stated that it will probably not
be wise to plant corn after grain in
the Piedmont section, because of the
shorter season. F~or grain lands~ in
this section, cow peas, soy beans and
peanuts are recommended.
NO REASON FOR HIGH PRICES
ON WHEAT SUBSTITUTES
Columbia,-The Food ~Admtnistras
tion has sent out a warning to corn
milier's and to wholesale and retail
dealers in corn, barley and oats prod.
ucts that at the present'prices of these
grains cornmeal and oatmeal should
be selling at least 'twenty per cent
below the pric, of wheat flour and

The high level, ruling in grains as

weather last winter have now fallen

cumulated by manufacturers and trad
ers at the prices ruling then should
have been liquidated by this time,
in the view of the Food Administra

price levels by millers and wholesal
ers will require justification to the
State andh local administraters, and al
though retailers are not under con
