Members of thn Corn Club in South
Carolina prodinued last year 26,813.21
hillhels of corn at an a ve-ra;e cost of
forty (('nts a hushel. the average yield
being fifty-three blishlIs to i( acre.
Figuring corn at $2.00 per otshel.
which is conservative, the total net
profit was $42.689.47. The total not.
profit resulting from the Boys' Pig
Club in the State was $13.99801. The
total net profits of South Carolina
farmer hoys in these two projects for
the year was $56.187.48.
There i9 an effort being made to
more titan double fth iemabership of
the Corn and I'Pig Clubs during pres
ent yetl. Last yuar there were 1056
boys enrolled in Corn Club Work, of
whom, however, only 601 reported;
and 1,250 boys enrolled in Pig Clubs,
of whom only 856t reported.
To assure the success of the Corn
and Pig Club work in South Carolina.
the co-operatlon, encouragement and
support of the publie-spirited citizens
is necessary. For Instance, last year
a number of bankers indifferent parts
of the State hlped by offering prizes,
and in tils way thousantds of dollars'
worth of pure bred pigs were brought
into the State, very materially adding
to the breeding stock of hogs. One
of the greatest difficulties has been
encountered in. mupplying the boys
with pigs. This splendid work of the
farmer boys of South Carolina has
formed a big contribution to the food
supply of the country, and it is a
work which offers opportunity for
many public-spirlted people to letnd
their aid. There will be more Pig
Club boys this year if the pigs to sup
Dly them are offered-or the money
with which to buy pigs-and L. L.
Baker, Supervising Agent of Boys'
Club Work. Bishopville, S. C., who is
in charge of the work in this State,
will be glad to hear from any one who
will aid the farmer boys in their effort
in greater production of food. Offers
addressed to the Chairman of Con
servation of the Wood Administration
for South Carolina, Columbia, will be
forwarded to Mr. Baker.
