I — BETTER POULTRY ASKED BY BROWN Says Farmers Should Use Dis cretion In Turning To Chicken Raising By GENE KNIGHT Assistant Extension Editor North Carolina State College RALEIGH, Jan. 28.— CS1) — Des perate tobacco and cotton farmers, caught In the net of circumstances, should use discretion in turning to poultry to supplement their un certain 1940 cash income. This was the advice issued today by T. T. Brown, extension poultry man at N. C. State college, as he predicted that thousands of farm ers would add poultry this year to supplement dwindling incomes. At the present time, he said, North Carolina is experiencing an overproduction of low quality poul try and eggs and a general defi ciency of high quality products. “We need fewer poorly-fed, mix ed breed chickens, and ones that are light in weight, poorly-feather ed, and scaly-legged.” the State college man declared. "And we need more well-fed, soft-meated, heavy, uniformly-colored purebred birds. “Likewise,” he continued, "we need fewer mixed-colored, dirty, low quality assorted egg sizes, and more high quality, strictly fresh graded eggs.” Shifting from crop farming tu poultry farming should be gradual, since a vast difference exists be tween the two. Brown pointed out The crop farmer plants his crop cultivates it for a comparatively short season and lets nature take care of it during the late growing season. On the other hand, he explained, poultry production requires detail ed daily attention the year-round if the venture is to prove suc cessful. Crop farming consists chiefly of producing raw materials while live stock and poultry production are manufacturing processes for con verting raw materials into food products. "It is not unusual.” Brown stat ed, “for crop farmers to become discouraged with poultry raising because of the regular detail work and close attention required for success. Many of them fail to un derstand the necessity and import ance of using a balanced, high quality feed for poultry. No manu facturing machine can turn out h:gh quality finished products un less quality raw materials are fed to it.” Many local markets in North Carolina are practically unexplored with high quality poultry and eggs and c-ould use an unlimited quan tity if quality were assured. If the inferior products now depressing the market were kept off, the con sumption of poultry products would increase, and local markets would be more eager to receive local products, the State college man said. Because of the tremendous vol ume of low quality products, some northern markets have been reluc tant to accept North Carolina poul try and eggs. When they have taken these products, the prices received were generally lower. “The quality of our poultry and egg supply,” Brown said, “can be improved immensely if the produc ers will buy high-quality, purebred chicks or eggs from reliable breed ers or hatcheries, and then raise the chicks according to standard approved practices.” Pressure .Cooker Used By Salem Fork Club DOBSOX, Jan. 28.—Members of the Salem Fork Home Demonstration club have canned 259 quarts of meats in the pressure cooker which the club won two years ago for being one of the outstanding clubs in the coun ty, says Mrs. Grace Pope Brown. Surry county home agent of the ex tension service of State college. Mrs. Jessie Fulk of Dobson, Route 1, a member of the club, told Mrs. Brown that the pressure cooker meant $50 to her family in canning 75 quarts of sausage, tenderloin, and ribs for her family’s winter use. Crimson Clover Termed Good Builder Of Soil JEFFERSON, Jan.-28.—J. S. Brown of Brownwood is one Ashe county farmer who is thoroughly sold on the use of crimson clover as a soil-building crop, reports H. D. Oueansberry, assistant farm agent of the extension serv ice of State college. ‘‘It is the best soil-builder I have ever tried,” the farmer states. Queensberry said that Mr. Brown seeds crimson clover in wheat stubble after the wheat is cut, which gives a good growth to turn under. He also seeds crimson clover in corn. JAPANESE BEETLE DRIVE IS SLATED Total Of 10,000 Traps Will Be Placed Throughout State This Summer By LOUIS H. WILSON Editor, N. C. Dept, of Agriculture RALEIGH, Jan. 28.—UP)—A total of 10,000 traps to catch the Japa nese beetle, pest of 300 agricultur al plants, will be scattered through, out North Carolina by the state de partment of agriculture early this summer. Meanwhile, the beetle control program will be intensified, Chief C. H. Brannon of the department’s entomology division announced to day that 200 acres of infested soil will be sprayed with arsenate of lead ‘‘to kill the beetle grub, thus suppressing the pest crop in areas most seriously affected.” “Traps,” Brannon explained, “will be used to determine the course to be taken in spraying infested areas this fall.” During the past season, the de partment in cooperation with the United States bureau of entomo logy and plant quarantine, treated 540 acres of beetle-populated land between Winston-Salem and Wil mington. Recognizing the importance of controlling the beetle, the 1939 g-eneral assembly appropriated $45, 000 for soil treatment from the general fund, the amount being supplemented by $15,000 from the department's budget. Surveys and trappings to date reveal that the beetle is most prev alent in the vicinities of Winston Salem, Asheville, Greensboro, Spen cer, East Spencer, High Point, Charlotte and Wilmington. Spraying for beetle control has been done in the following coun ties: Alamance, Durham, Davidson, Edgecombe, Forsyth, Guilford, Lee, Mecklenburg, New Hanover, Nash, Pasquotank, Rowan, Wayne, Wake and Wilson. “Insofar as we are able to as certain, North Carolina is making excellent progress in the control of the Japanese beetle,” Brannon said. “It is paramount that we continue the control program, if the farm-' ers of the state are to be given the protection they deserve.” “We believe the spraying pro gram has already saved growers thousands of dollars, and although it is a comparatively expensive form of control, the ‘soaking of the soil’ with arsenate ,of lead as sures protection against the beetle for a period of approximately sev en years. The value of the present spraying program is that it pre vents further spread of this costly pest.” Limestone, Phosphate Increase Hay Yield BAKERS VILLE, Jan. 28.—<ZP)—S. L. Phillips of Wing has increased his hay yields by 50 per cent in the past three years through the use of ground agricultural limestone and phosphate, reports F. L. Woodard, Mitchell county farm agent of the State college extension service. Mr. Phillips tells everyone who visits his farm that lime and phosphate are responsible for his better crops. Woodard says that the Wing farm er has used 200 tons of lime in the past three years, and now has his order in for 55 additional tons un der the 1940 grant-of-aid program of the agricultural adjustment ad ministration. TOBACCO ECONOMY URGED BY WEEKS Specialist Says Farmers Should Start Economizing In The Plant Bed To be profitable this year, to bacco must be produced economi cally. L. T. Weeks, Extension to bacco specialist of State college, says the place to start economizing is in the plant bed. There is such a thing as false economy; for in stance, growing less . plants than are required. True economy coif' sists of producing healthy plants and preparing for disease out breaks should they occur. In the first place, Weeks advises that where practical and possible, a new site should be selected each year for the tobacco plant bed. Or, at least a four-year rotation should be followed for locating the bed. The site should be well drained with a southern or southwestern exposure, the soil should be loamy, and a source of water should ' e nearby. One hundred square yards of bed will normally produce from 10,000 to 15,000 plants. It is advisable to have several small beds, widely separated on the farm, rather than to have one large bed. By doing this, it gives a chance for some of the beds to escape diseases and other conditions that might be detrimental to the plants. All the debris, such as stumps and roots, should be removed from sites which are selected in or near a wooded area. The soil should be pulverized finely by the use of im plements that are practical for the farm to use, taking care not to break the soil too deeply. Three to four inches * is usually sufficient, Weeks advised. Fertilization Of Bed It has been proven that under r. jrmal conditions 200 pounds of 1-8-3 mixture for each 100 square yards of bed space, or two pounds per square yard, will provide ex cellent fertilization. Fifty per c t of the nitrogen used in this mix ture should come from a water sol uable source, such as nitrate of soda or sulphate of ammonia; and 50 per cent from an organic source, such as cottonseed meal or dried blood. The phosphate should all come from superphosphate, and the potash should all come from sul phate of potash magnesia. If a low grade of fertilizer is used, the specialist recommends that it be supplemented with 50 to 100 pounds of cottonseed meal, mixing the meal thoroughly with the soil. The fertilizer should be broadcast on the beds and mixed with the upper three or four inches of soil. A light application of manure may be used, but it should not contain tobacco leaves, stalks or trash because there is a possibility of infesting the new bed with disease that might live over on the old tobacco. Usually a tablespoon/ul of re cleaned seed to each 100 square yards of bed space is sufficient to give a uniform stand. The seed should be mixed with cottonseed meal, dry sand, ashes, or fertilizer for sowing. An even stand is more likely to be obtained if one-half of the seed are sown in one direction and the remaining seed sown across the bed at right angles to the first sowing. Should Pack Red After the seed are sown, the bed should be packed by running a light roller over it, tamping it with a board attached to the end of a short pole, or by tamping it with the feet. Rolling or tamping is not recommended on stiff heavy soils. A better stand will be ob tained in this type of soil ' the seed are whipped in lightly with a brush broom from some plant, such as dogwood. Weeks suggested that the plant bed be built narrow to facilitate covering with canvas if fumigation to kill or prevent blue mold be comes necessary. The State College Extension serv ice has recently revised its cir cular on blue mold control to con tain the latest information avail able on the three recommenced methods of attacking the dreaded Columbus Receives Share Of Cold Weather And Many Flu Cases Noted ni tiusjsrn JtlUFHAM (Star Correspondent) EELCO, Jan. 28* — This business of getting up a column is pretty hard work, sometimes, i saw an editor sitting at his typewriter last Friday, which was one of the coldest days we’ve had this year, and he was trying so hard to think of some thing to write that his forehead was beaded with perspiration. One thing, when you get out to look up something to write, about all you can find is a thin layer of snow, and the ponds all coated over with ice. And speaking about the presence of so much cold weath er reminds us that there is another epidemic of influenza in Columbus county. Earlier in the week we visited a nearby city where a whole lot of men were doing a lot of street work. Somebody said they were WPA workers. If so, then a solution has been found to a problem that has been the instigation to many jokes about the WPA forces, because the weather was so cold the workmen were having to stir about right lively to keep from freezing. Some folks say that the Finns enjoy the 54-below-zero that has been hanging around their borders, and declare that the Russians have been getting a great kick out of it also, only the "kick” was being made by the skiing Finns. When the British turned down our 1939 tobacco crop, it occurred to us to strike along the humorous voin and so we wrote an editorial pn scuttling the whole crop. The editor dropped the article as if it were a hot rivet, then he picked it up, shook his head as if he were undecided, and then it went on the file to go to the printers. No one else might enjoy having the ’39 tobacco crop scuttled, but we 11 wager that the farmers won’t mind, not so badly. Anyway, they are steeling themselves for some kind of blow that they are expect ing to have to absorb for having made such a bountiful crop last year. It seems that the "unconcerned” cannot quite grasp the idea that the farmers have already had a severe beating. How are they going to absorb any more blows? Why their debts, in many instances, are al ready too great for them- to bear. Or at least they are not able tc pay them. And don't forget this: the merchants who customarily have furnished "runs” have become a wary lot. It's easier to sneak up on a wild turkey gobbler with dry leaves crushing beneath your boots than it is to catch a fellow with a few dollars willing to make a loan. The majority of the farmers know this, and yet they are having to, out of dire necessity, swallow what little pride they used to have, or still have, and go hither and yon seeking what little help they can get. "IF" (Editorial) Kudzu is the rank-growing plant you often see covering roadside banks to prevent washing. It is sometimes called “telephone vine.” In addition to its soil-conserving qualities, Kudzu is also an excellent soil-building crop, if——. The big “if”, says W. D. Lee, extension soil con servationist of State college, is “if you can turn it un der with horse-down plows.” That this is possible is indicated by a report Lee received recently from a Soil Conservation service research project in Alabama. In the spring of 1935, the report says, a large acreage of badly eroded land was planted to kudzu in the Dadeville, Ala., area. Some of the plantings pro duced grazing (another of its qualities) in the fall of 1937, and an excellent hay crop in 1938. In March, 1939 the entire area was plowed, after the residue on top of the ground had been cut with a weighted disk harrow. The research leaders reported little difficulty was experienced in turning the soil by this method. A rolling coulter was used on the plow beam, and after the land was turned it was allowed to settle for a few weeks. In early May the land was harrowed again with a disk and was planted to corn. Superphosphate was ap plied at the rate of 200 pounds to the acre. This was the same amount applied to the kudzu when it was first planted. No additional phosphate was ever ap plied to the kudzu._ ImprovementlnFarmers Prospects Seen By U. S. Bureau Of Agricultural Eco nomics Says Consumer Buy ing Power Is High By GUY A CARDWELL General Agricultural Agent Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Co. According to the bureau of agri cultural economics, U. S. depart ment of agriculture, farmers of the United States begin a new year— and a new decide—with improved prospects for prices and income. Consumer buying power continues relatively high and the average of prices of farm products is the high est in more than two years. The poorest spot in the picture is the low price of hogs due to a production of almost record proportions in 1939. The government index of prices of all farm products combined starts the new year at about 100. But prices farmers pay for commodities used in production and for family living are 20 to 25 per cent higher than the pre-World war average. And the exchange value of farm products for other commodities is about 20 per cent below pre-war. Dollar wheat has become a real ity, principally on prospects of an unusually small winter wheat crop next summer. Cotton has been topping 11 cents a pound—the highest price in more than two years. Factors in the ad vance include the greatly increased domestic consumption following the outbreak of the European war, im provement in domestic business con ditions, the large sales of American cotton for export, increased cotton consumption in a number of impor tant foreign countries, and a some what higher government loan on the 1939 crop than in 1938. The total supply of feed this sea son is the largest on record, but the amount per head of livestock on farms is slightly below the record supply of 1938. More cattle are be ing fed this season than last, with the result that marketings of grain fed cattle will be larger this winter and next spring. More lambs are be in? fed, and the 1939 production of pi?s has been estimated at 84 mil lion—the largest crop in 17 years of record. Feed prices have advanc ed so that it is costing more to pro duct livestock and livestock prod ucts. Milk production probably will set a new high record for the season this winter. There are more cows on farms, and prices of dairy prod ucts recently have been the highest in nearly two years. Milk produc tion totaled more than 111 billion pounds in 1939. This was the largest annual output on record. Farmers have been rebuilding dairy herds, and the basis has been laid for in creased production of milk and dairy products in the next few years. The supply of fats and oils cur rently is the largest on record. Pro duction of these products from do mestic materials totaled about 8.4 billion pounds in 1939, compared with 8 billions in 1938. Increased production of lard, pork greases, beef tallow, soybean oil and linseed oil more than offset the reduced output of cottonseed, peanut, and whale oils. Egg production has become less profitable to producers. Prices of eggs have declined as prices of feed advanced. Farm laying flocks are larger than at this time last year. Supplies of poultry in early 1940 will be larger than at the same time in 1939. Consumer demand for fresh fruits has improved, but the combined pro duction of 13 fruits is the second largest on record and exports have been curtailed by the European war. This has forced a larger proportion of the supply of apples, pears, and citrus fruits on the domestic mar ket. Market prices of vegetables av erage somewhat higher this winter than last. Consumer buying power is better and some winter vege tables are in smaller supply this season. Stocks of most canned vege tables are much smaller than the large carry-over stocks in 1939—a snarp increase in production of most truck crops for canning or manufacture is expected this year. Use Of Limestone Will Be Boosted In Harnett LILLINOTON, Jail. 28.—For ty-five times as much ground agricultural limestone will be used in Harnett county this year as was used last year, predicts C. R. Ammons, farm agent of the State college extension serv ice. Only four cars of lime were bought in 1939 by farmers tnrough the aaa grant-oi-aiu program. Ammons reports that he re cently delivered the second car of lime to the Jumping Run Club of Bell’s Creek. The cars con tained about 62 tons of lime each. TOUR OF CATTLE FARMS SCHEDULED Trip Through Piedmont And Eastern North Carolina To Be Made This Week RALEIGH, Jan. 28.—A tour of beef cattle farms in eastern and Piedmont North Carolina will be held the week of January 29, it was announced here today by L. I. Case, extension animal husbandman of State college. Twenty-two farms will be visited, and approximately 2,000 head of cattle that are now on feed will b*» in spected, Case said. The livestock owners have notified the extensiqp specialist that about 500 of the 2,000 animals will be ready for the market in early Feb ruary, and he termed this as excel lent time for farmers entering the beef cattle business, and prospective livestock producers, to see how suc cessful farmers are handling their herds. The tour will start from Elizabeth City on Monday morning, January 29, and the first day will visit the farms of W. W. Jarvis of Moyock, H. C. Ferebeo of Camden, J. \V. Foreman of Elizabeth City, T G. Savage of Hobgood, W. R. Everett of Palmyra, and B. B- Everett of Palmyra. Monday night will be spent in Rocky Mount, and on Tuesday the following farms will be visited: Thomas J. Pearsall of Battieboro, Caledonia Prison Farm at Tillery, and Thomas D. Temple of Scotland Neck. Leaving from Fayetteville on Wed nesday morning, the tourists will vis it the farms of McFarland Brothers of Manchester, W.-H. Marsh of Fay etteville, H. B. Ashley, Jr., of Red Springs, and George L. Pate of Row land. Moving westward, the Thursday schedule calls for stops at the farms of Zeb Cline of Shelby, Marvin Put nam of Waco, J. E. Cansler of Lin colnton, B. B. Miller of Mt. Ulla, and J. C. Sherrill of Mt. Ulla. The final day, Friday, will be spent in inspecting the herds of C A. Browne of Cleveland, E. C. Ta tum of Cooleeme, and D. J. Lybrok of Advance. SUGGESTION Grow something to eat, and then something to sell, advises Dr. I. y Schaub, director of the State college extension service, as farmers 0f North Carolina face reduced tobacco income in 1940. downy mildew disease, namely: paradichlorobenzene and benzol fumigants, and red copper oxide cottonseed oil sprays.

N.C. HONEY C IP OF GOOD QE JTY Veteran Apiarist Says 1939 Production Was About 70 Per Cent Normal A honey crop about 70 per cent Df normal, of good quality, and mar keted at fair prices, is the way C. L. Sams, veteran apiarist of the State College Extension services summarizes the 1939 beekeeping in dustry in North Carolina. He said that beekeepers who used improved hives and a good system of colony management made yields 10 per cent above normal, but indifferent bee keepers suffered from a short sea son of nectar flow in some sections, and other apiary problems. “The amount of honey harvested during 1939 varies greatly between the different sections of the state,” Sams reported. “The yield was ex ceedingly good in some of the east ern counties, with average produc tion of 250 pounds per colony achieved by a few. The crop was be low' normal through most of the Piedmont and mountain counties. However, good crops were obtained in some of the Piedmont counties and yields up to 1G0 pounds were harvested by some beekeepers.” On the basis of records from 166 demonstration apiaries operating 3,105 colonies which cooperate with the extension service in following good practices of beekeeping, Sams says that the trained beekeep er received from four to five times as much honey as the untrained or indifferent beekeeper, and the use of modern, movable hives increas ed the production 10 to 15 times over that harvested from box hives or round gums. Average More Money The 166 cooperating beekeepers averaged 49 1-2 pounds of honey per colony, while the state average was estimated by the extension specialist at 21 pounds per colony. This is a difference of approximate ly $4.37 per colony in revenue, or an increase in income of $13,568 for the demonstration apiaries over the state average. Through the influence of the ex tension apiarist, 293 farmers in 67 counties transferred 2,618 colonies to modern hives in 1939. “This ac tivity, with proper management in the new hives, will increase the earning power of these bees by' at least $10,000 a year,’’ Sams stated. Continuing, the specialist said that records from demonstration apiaries indicate tnat replacing old and failing queens with young, vig orous queens of good stock will in crease the yield by at least 30 pounds of honey per colony. During the past season the extension apiar ist and county agents assisted 308 farmer in 58 counties in re-queen ing 5,852 colonies of bees. On this basis, the increased production would be 175,560 pounds of honey worth at this year's valuation about $19,300. Demonstrations of treatment and control of bee diseases were given at 22 meetings. Results from these demonstrations and personal assist ance were that 349 farmers owning 7,631 colonies in 57 counties gave the recommended treatment to their colonies. Most of these colonies, if neglected, would have died with a loss of more than $20,000. Provide Free PolLenizers Sams pointed out that the results of keeping bees do not stop with the actual amount of honey' produc ed. The beekeeper greatly increases the crops of fruits, vegetables, and seed furnishing many pollenizers free of charge. ‘‘The bees contrib ute 10 to 15 times as much to the wealth of the state in pollination of fruits, legumes and other farm crops as in the amount of honey and wax produced,” he declared. , A great , majority of the farmers who are beekeepers started their apiaries as a sideline to their gen eral farming; now they are find ing the bees their greatest source of cash income. Sams said that one farmer in Stokes county reported that last year he made $900 from his apiary of 100 colonies. He has decided to quit growing tobacco and obtain 100 to 150 more colonies of bees. “The prospects for beekeeping are encouraging for 1940,” the special ist stated. “The average condition of colonies is above normal with regard to young queens, colony strength, and food supply. Honey producing plants are in normal con dition and many of the beekeepers are preparing for a good crop.” In conclusion, Sams said that the chief source of loss is the failure of the beekeeper to have a strong colony and an excess of workers at the beginning of the nectar flow in the spring. He also urges atten tion to disease-control, saying that the two infectious diseases of the brood of bees, known as American Foulbrood and European Foulbrood. have been identified in about 50 counties in the state.” BEST TOBACCO SOIL Sandy soils are better than clay soils in growing tobacco, says Dr. J. F. Lutz, associate professor of soils at N. C. State college. Circular On Blue Mold Control Now Available RALEIGH, Jan. 28.—A revised ex tension circular (No. 229) on controi of blue mold of tobacco is ready for free distribution to citizens of North Carolina, it was announced today by P. H. Jeter, agricultural editor at State college. The publication ex plains fully the three recommended methods of controlling the deadly plant bed disease, namely: Benzol and paradichlorobenzene fumigation, and copper-oxide oil sprays. The information contained in the circular was prepared by representa tives of the North Carolina agricul tural extension service, in coopera tion with extension workers qf Vir ginia and South Carolina; the ex periment stations of the three states; representatives of Duke university, and of the state department of agri culture.
