Richard Wills, Feudal! Cushing and Hubert Snodgrass have " accordingly submitted papers on the subject and a disinterested committee has placed the papers In the order named. Ae each boy's paper pre sents the subject in a different light and each has special merits of its own it seems only fair that each should receive some reward; It has therefore been decided to split the prise on a basis of 60, 30 and 20 per cent. The essay of Richard Wills is pub- J lished below and those of Fciklall Cushing and Hubert Snodgrass will be given in subemiuent issues. It is hoped that our leaders—both father and son—will read them carefully to tho end that they may obtain both pleasuie and profit from them. , What Judging Work gas (tone For Me ’ In the fall of it>2o I had completed my first summer of club work, and through it my interests had been a roused in agriculture, particularly in purebred livestock. As I had been fairly successful with my pig, when Mr. Derrick organised the celf club I decided to Join. I hod never cared as much for rattle as I had for other live, stock. However, after working with my calf that winter, I began to see that there was more In a cow than most people believe. By this I mean that u cow Is more than a milk-giving machine. 1 found that cows respond quickly to kind tieatment, are intelli gent, ami have a refinement about (hem which is almost human. This ii certainly true of purebred cattle. With the success of the first Mary land Judging team freali In my mind, and with my newly acquired interest in cattle, I decided to try fur the Hal ford County Judging Warn. The training of the 1921 team began In June, shortly after the closing of school, at tha home of Mr. J. Charles Rutledge where the field day of the Jersey breeders was being held. It was here that I found out how little I knew about a dairy cow. Mr. Louis Merrymsn, Maryland's foremost Guern sey brooder amt Dr, Meade, of the Unlveraisty of Maryland, were present and gave us the fundamentals 6f dairy cattle Judging. 1 soon found out that a good dairy cow must poaoess more than a large udder. As our training progressed, my knowledge became broader, and I be gan to take an interest in the milk and hotter-fat records made by dairy rows. An interesting feature In this was that I Invariably learned from the photographs of heavy producers that they conform closely to the desired type us set by cattle Judges. That is, une never sees a sloping-rumped, slab sided cow that Is a good producer. Cows must have plenty of middle, a level topline, and a capacious udder to lie heavy producers. It can be seen from this that I waa learning whit chsiVcteitHtice u good dairy cow must hsve, and this knowledge Is absolutely necessary before one can select cows that will bring him a profit. 4.. We were taken on several trips to Pennsylvania, where we visited such noted farms as Penshurst, Delchester, and Baroley. At these farms I saw world’s record rows, and hud the op portunity of seeing some of the best managed daily farms In the Kant. Here I learned a great deal as to how dairy farms should be run, how to avoid disease among cattle hy the use of maternity bams and other ap pliances for promoting the health of the cows. 1 also hail the chance to hear expert cattle men talk on cattle and their care. All nf this is a great aid to future dairy farmers. I was fortunate enough to make the Harford team that year, and we went to Timonium with hopes of win ning, This happened to be Cecil’s year, however, nn<| Harford had to he con lent with second place. The failure to win first place was u great dirap pnmtmant to us all, hut we determined to do better next year. I myself fl, that us a re-oil of my summer s work I was a hundred per cent belter oif ' than when I begun. I had learned a ' gieat deal about dairy! cattle, which would lie of great value in later life. | In the spring nf 1922 I derided to try again for the Judging team. The ! training routine was much the same j as that nf the preceding nummer. This year I he finer points came more easily and all of us profited by the preceding ; year's mistakes. At Timonium Har ford won first placo and the silver cup. Hy this victory we were entitled to the trip to the National Dairy Hhovl, held at Bt. Paul, Minnesota, which was of fered by the cattle breeders of Mary land, We were greatly elated over this result, ami started an our western trip in fine spirits. In the contest at the National Hhow, Maryland won first plsce. It was a great victory, and all felt especially happy as this Waa the first time Maryland had won higher than fourth place in a National cfmlest. I The real value of this winning was not tho mere taking of first place, hut (he effect that woe felt hack home. Kuch a victory createn an Interest In the hoys In Maryland. The result Is that they try out for school and county I teams, ami thue broaden their know ledge of dairying and dairy cattle. This | is what America needs- iiettei cattle men. I At the National Dairy Hhow I saw herds of nation-wide note, which far , surpassed any cattle which I had pre | vlously seen. I hod the chance to see expeH Judges, showmen and oilier . cattlemen at their work. The machi | nery exhibit was of great educational value. In it were all types of Imple ments used In connection with cattle ami dairy products. There were also 1 government exhibits, showing the val ue of purebred cattle, the food value of dairy products, as well as many other features f great valua, which are too numerous to mention here. From this article R can be seen that Judging work has meant a great deal more to me than the mere winning of prizes. Thanks to the training of Mr. Derrick, Mr. Merryman, and many other men who helped train our Judm ing team, I have a much greater know ' ledge of dairying than I could have got in any other way, and this know ledge will stay with me, so that, should I have a dairy herd of my own, I should know how to avoid mistakes that I should otherwise be apt to make. 1 RICHARD WILLS. j ANOTHER SCHOOL PROBLEM Darlington. Md. , The Editors of The ACgis; Dear Sirs; While the people of Harford County have their mi mis on the Bond Issue, I should like to call their attention to another school matter which 1 discov ered and which struck me as being rather peculiar. Ido not knew wheth er such conditions exist In other schools but this much I have learned, that an ; inexperienced teacher of the third grade in our school began her work with no idea of the work sho was ex- Gcted to cover during the first or last If of the year, no knowledge what ever of what had been covered In the ) second grade, Aa time want on 1 < found ah* w bewildering the children d with work they were totally unprepar v ed for. Ae I did not know what wo* ' required of her and ohe didnt know, I ' went to the principal, intending if ouch . work waa right, to put my child iiack „ in the second grade: The principal in. , formed me that he knew very little of „ the primary work. I aaked him If he I had an outline of the work for the 2nd „ and 3rd grade. Ho had not but advlo. ed mo to write to the Baltimore Coun ty Superintendent a we uoed their r course of otudy. Instead of doing that , however 1 went to the office of our t own County Superintendent He and , the Primary Supervisor were both out I but the clerk in the office very kindly , Jo a small leaflet which she said V contained the only information on the subject that she knew of. It only . mentioned the books In reading to be 1 j , “ p dur| ng the year. The clerk I advised me to see the Primary Super ' S2E as she could givo me the Infor matlon I .ought, A few more weeks 1 P*c*ed and lat last had an opportuni -1 i y intnvl' th th * l | rim,r y Supervisor. I introduced myself and opened the conversation upon the subject of sec i lit \ n jl th ‘,r d * ra< te work, I must have been all wrong in daring to ap hcr for she seemed so dlsln ■ dined to talk that she never even turn hc chair to face me and I don't £ y * l wh,t ‘*s teacher la supposed ♦“if ChlW ln 0,6 thll < l Kcn'ic. , •™nlt 1 m moie curious than over simply because every one to whom I’ve gone seems about as lost as myself I memYonid W tS‘ th K' v . h * th *' - th •*- mentioned teacher has learned any ,n th * ,w ‘ rini -' .•“"'‘"•I th , lH ftr,t month my child p 1 *! 1 , j" school was worse than lost. k . b * possible that all the Ines perieiu’ed teuolurM in the county com menced their year’s work under such a handicap? Surely It Is an Injustice to both teacher and pupil. Could not Whh* pay, its Superinten dent 92600 a year plus traveling expnn. ses and its Primary Supervisor 9140 U i isn'"*7 expenses and u clerk 91140 and Its attendance officer (SR) plus traveling expenses manage to pave s few printed outltnea of the work tobe covered In each grade and distribute these among the teachers? Doee each new teacher have to depend entirely upon the visits of the Super visor to get a knowledge of what she Is to (to ? And where can any parent trustee or interested person gain the information I have been seeking for— namely the work to be coveted In each grade. Have w• not a right to Inquire Into this? How can there be any co operation between teacher and parent, when the latter 1s so entirely In the dark? Could some one who know* answer the above questions through The A*!gls It would be appreciated by AN INQUISITIVE PARENT, FARM WOMEN I.BARN TO USE BUTTER MAKKTINO METHODS Acting upon the advice of extension workers, South Carolina women have made steady advances In standardis ing the products they offer for sale and In inoreaalng their output. For exam ple, In Charleston County, starting with 1 woman -two years ago, there are now over 70 women shipping'in weekly their graded and guaranteed eggs. Two years ago no one thought of fattening poultry lie foie sanding to market. To-day no one thinks of send ing poultry to market without flrst fattening it. The women realise u:i never before that a atandbixl-bred fowl produoea higher-priced eggs and market poultry than a mongrel. The improvement in preserving Is also marked. Two years ago only ono wo man produced really atandard pro serves and Jelly, Now thore are nine who can for market -and many others who put up a few (Risen to sell. Tin original woman who sold preserves Ims s i developed her business that aha has built a factory and has planned for mi output of 10,000 containers. The members of the local home demonstra tion club assist Her and In this wuy not only make pocket money for them selves hut improve their own work, and In a few ycam the entire commu nity kids fair to lie well known for Its speciallsad products. The number of dozen eggs sold, as repnrtad to (lie ex tension agent Is 8,142, and the pounds of poultry, 18,087. The value of can ned goods actually sold Is 9612, and the total amount of all products Is K,- 604.94, In the Htale loot year approxlma'ely 5,000 containers of such standardised pioducts as Dixie burgoo, pine bark Ash stew, Brunswick stew, soup mix ture, blackberry Jam, artichoke relish, and butter were put on the market through the Houth Carolina Home Pro ducere’ Association. This year con tracts have been signed for about 2D0,- 000 containers. COTTONTAIL RABBITS GOOD AH GAME, BAD FOB ORCHARDS In spite ef their good qualities as food and game, cottontail rabbits in many localitiea become a great nui sance to orchard* and farm crape, and control measures ere necessary to pre vent their increeae. In addition loHhc natural checks effected by diseases and piedatory animal anemias, the usual waya of preventing abnormal Increases in their numbers, according to the Bi ological Survey, are by hunting, trap ping, fencing or poisoning. In msny States seat of the Mlasiss ippl rabbits are protected aa game, and the close season for them must lie ob served. The (lame laws for 11)22, issued by the Department of AgHcult. ure shows (tie requirements in each State. In some States rabbits may lie taken witli dog, trap, or enare at any time, but must not be shot during the close season. In a number of Stales having a close season for rabbits the laws permit farmers and fruit grow ers to destroy the animals to protect crops or trees, Poisoned bait* can be used to keep down the numbers of rabbits where do. ■nestle animals can be prevented from gaining access to the poison. Shooting for sport and using for meal, however, Is preferable and will usually hold the animals In check. Rabbit proof fences can be proAtabiy built when the urea to be protected is not too large. Var loua washes distasteful to rabbits are recommended for uae on tree trunks, ea well as different mechanical conlrl vances to keep the hungry animals from eating the bark and girdling the trees. Feeding rabbits in winter with winter prunings of apple trees or corn, cabbage, or turnipi bee been practiced successfully in some orchards, on the theory that It in cheaper to feed than to flght them.

Minnesota and Michigan, West. Virginia and North Dakota are some of these.
