Corn la the most important food crop grown in Louisiana and amounts to about forty-million bushels a year. This great amount, however. Is only about one-half of the corn and com products required to meet tho needs of the state. It Is Imperative, there fore, that the acreage planted to this crop be greatly increased As a rule, it is not advisable to plant corn on poor land, but under ex fating conditions of great need for incrraBf>d food production, com should be planted on the poorest grade of luxid as well as on the best, and a crop of velvet beans should be grown with the com to help make It profit able. The season for planting com will last until hbout the first of July. If is recommended that the native va rieties, such as Calhoun Red Cob, Sen tell h White Dent. Hastings Prolific, Mosby's Prolific, etc., be planted up to the first of June, after which some of the earliar maturing types, such as Iyaguna and Dwarf Mexican June should be planted. Corn 1 b a crop that ta greatly In fluenced by soil and by rainfall dur ing the growing season. The only thing that a farmer can do to over come theee difficulties is to prepare tho soil thorougnty and give the com the best possible cultivation.—W. R. Perkins, Extension Division, Louisi ana State University. TABLE POULTRY WILL RELIEVE MEAT SHORTAGE Chicks May Be Hatched and Beared At Any Time— Foods For Fat tenlng Fowle. The production of table poultry la a means by which many Individuale cnn do a great deal toward averting tha threatened meat shortage. Table poultry Is produced largely as a by-product from flocks where egg production Is the main object. Al though early spring hatches are nec essary to produce good fall and win ter layers, chickens for table use can be profitably hatched and reared at al most any time of year. Keep the growing chicks comforta ble at all times. This Is the only method that will give the beat results. A chick once checked, or stunted, dur ing Its growing period will never make as good development as the chick which la kept growing steadily at Its normal rate. Chicks'that are hatched during the hotter portions of the year should be provided with ample shade, clean and cool water, and fresh, succulent green feed. The very young chick cannot stand sa much exposure to tbs hot sun as can the earlier hatched and partly feathered chick. The medium, or heavy breeds, such as the Plymouth Rock, Wyandotte, Rhode Island Red, Orpington, etc., are best suited for table poultry produc tion. The cockerels from theee breeds may be caponlzed when they weigh a ponnd and a half to two pounds and then fed for continued growth to tho six or eight pound stage, or even larger. The light, active breeds, such as I<e ^ ornB nnd the »Creole" cut be . .. . __ . "sed profitably for the production of ] broilers or small fryers. Owing to ] their nervous, active disposition they increase in weight very slowly after reaching the pound and a half to two and & ba j f stage, and it Is rare |y Jm>flub , e ^ ke6p them beyond that point. FTom a standpoint of economy, poul try is not ready for consumption until It has been fattened, or "finished." The finishing should be done by the grower. A simple method Is to con fine the birds to a small yard for about two weekB and feed them on corn chops soaked in sour skimmed milk, giving three feeds a day and all they will eat. Where milk Is not obtalna j,j e following may usually be sub t|t t d wlth satisfactory results: ptltuted with satiafaetory results: Wheat bran, 1 part; cottonseed meal, t parts; com meal, 10 parts; and wa fer enough to make a mixture of sreamy consistency.—A. F. Rolf, Live Stock Extension flervice, Louisiana State University. PLANT VELVET BEANS FOR WINTER GRAZING Unsurpassed Far Feed and Sell Im provement—May Be Planted aa Late aa June 19. Velvet beans should he planted in every row of corn and every effort made to grow a maximum crop. For providing feed for animals that may be utilised In winter and for improv Ing the soil it Is unsurpassed. Tho Early Speckled variety will produce a good seed crop, and may be planted is late as June IB. The vines are not conaidered desirable for hay on ac count of the difficulty In harvesting and curing, but when left in the field livestock will graze them throughout the winter and utilize their full feed ing value. The beans that under good, ordinary conditions will pepduee as much aa a ton of seed In the pod per Rcre may be harvested and either shelled for seed purposes or ground into feed—pod and all Tills makes a food equal in value to shorts or bran, and is very valuable for horses, cat tle and hogs.— W.
