LIEUT. HENBY B. PERRY
2nd Lt. Henry B. Perry, 519 N.
Oak St., Thomasville Ga. He is a
graduate of St. Augustine’s College
Raliegh, N. Car., receiving his B. S.
degree. His brother Frank H. Perry
is a sergeant at the Reception Cen
ter, Ft. Benning Georgia.
Champion Cotton
Picker
Elijah Gordon, 40, is the world's
new champion cotton picker. He won
the title and $1,000 at Blythevilie. :
Arkansas, last week. Mr. Gordon is
married and has four children. He j
says he’s going to use part of the
money to build himself a home, “One j
that I dont have to pay rent on, and I
one that doesn't leak.’’ As for the
rest, w'ell he’s going to add to the j
$59 worth of War Bonds and Stamps
he has already bought with cotton
picking money.
Mr. Gordon, who sometimes picks
800 pounds of cotton a day, picked
102 pounds in two hours in the con
test. This w’asnt the most picked by
contestants, but his cotton was the
cleanest, and his row was in the best
condition. The judges, based the de
cision on these three factors: wei
ght, cleanness of cotton, condition of
row. Two former champions, both
white, were defeated. The National
Cotton Picking Association sponsor
ed the contest.
Negroes Grow
Oil Crops
In a recent comment on the gener
al crop report, Secretary of Agricul
ture Claude R. Wickard, said, We
have doubled our oil crops to more
than replace that lost when the Japs
conquered the Far East.
Negro farmers have played an im
portant part in this oil production.
Reports from a few states give some
idea of the extent to which Negro
farmers went in growing oil crops to
help overcome the shortage of ve
getable oils. Peanut crops for oil were
planted by 12,980 Negro farmers in
Georgia, by 2,050 in Arkansas, 1,770
in South Carolina, by 2,856 in Okla
homa and 15,763 in Texas.
Wage Board Named
Secretay Wickard has named an
agricultural wage board to open hear
ings in New Jersey to determine the
prevailing wage for workers to har
vest apples and other important war ,
crops. This step was taken to pro
tect the farmers and the migratory
workers, many of whom are Negroes.
Wartime
Meat Program
There will be five per cent less
lamb and mutton, 20 per cent less
beef and veal, and 25 per cent less
pork for civilian use between now and
Christmas than there was the same
period last year. Civilians are being
asked to voluntarily limit themselves
to 2 1-2 pounds of meat per person
per wqpk. This does not mean that
there is less meat in the country than
there was last year; in fact there is
mo a. But in order to insure adequate
supplies for our armed forces and
our allies, packer deliveries for meat
for civilian consumption are being
limited.
