Organization work on the home stretch continued all last week. Field Organizer Frank Crippen made some long jumps and visited two or three parishes which had previously been organized, for the purpose of helping further in the work of ward organiza tion. Those parishes put on their feet, since the last report are: LaSalle—Henry Hardtner, Urania, chairman ; Robert H. Brooks, Urania, secretary. Jackson—J. J. Lewis, Jonesboro, chairman; W. E. Jeffries, Jonesboro, secretary. Grant—J. W. Duncan, Colfax, chairman ; R. L. Sloan, Colfax, sec retary. Lafayette— F. V. Mouton, Lafa yette, chairman; F. M. Bacque, sec retary. East Baton Rouge— T. L. Methvien, Tucker, chairman. Union—J. M. Butler, Bernice, chairman; Tom Shields, secretary. J. O. Montegut, who has been des- ignated as secretary of Ascension parish, found that he could not serve, as he is going to move out of the parish soon, though he will still have some interests there. Prof. W. S. Edwards of the high school at Gon- zales, was prevailed upon to under- take the work, and he has done so with a will. -o-- What the Parish Agents are Doing E. P. Barrios, Lafourche—During the past week farmers throughout the parish 1 could be seen plowing the land in preparation for spring plant- ing. Practically every available team was used for this purpose and many tractors were on the job also. With favorable weather the farmers will have a good start for the year's work. H. V. Harris, Caldwell—I now have thirty-six fangf listed for demon strations ni pruning, spraying and terracing, and if the weather per mits, will soon have the work com pleted. The terracing tools have been received and the spraying mate rials will be here shortly. Claude W. Davis, Morehouse—A carload of corn purchased co-oper atively by the people of Bastrop through the agent was distributed during two days of the week. This car of 530 buahels was purchased by thirty different people at a cost price of $1.55 a bushel, or a saving of $238.50 to the purchasers. E. M. Sledge, West Carroll—Deliv ered a car of meal and hulls at For est. This carload was so much cheap er than was expected by the farmers that another car was immediately subscribed for. We got the meal for seventy cents hundred less than lo cal prices. Am having many calls for assistance in pruning and spray ing. I ordered two pure bred bulls for grading up local herds. C. C. Chapman, Beauregard—The Longacre community has been feed ing out a car of hogs for co-operative shipping. Local buyers have offered thirty cents for dressed hogs and I have advised the farmers to take it as the hog markets are not so strong as we would like. I see no reasons for shipping hogs when they will net more at home. The organization at Longacre has also decided to order all fertilizers co-operatively and have appointed a committee to investigate prices, etc. —, -o GET A GOOD SIRE Quality and productive capacity of the average Louisiana farm animal is still low. Thousands of fanners are wasting time and money on ani mal? that give less returns for the same exepnditures than would better stock. The price of land, the price of labor, and the price of everything else is high. If animals are to hold their own in our system of agricul ture they must not only be high priced themselves but they must also be of high quality. The value of livestock depends on good care, housing, feeding and dis ease control, as well as on breeding. Good breeding, however, determines the fundamental capacity of an ani mal to be profitable to its owner. Ac cordingly, the replacement of scrub sires by good purebreds is considered a basis for other improvement. While the use of good females is likewise important, good sires bring results more quickly and at less expense. Get a good sire ! -o Start Keeping Books First of New Year Every farmer should keep books so that he may have accurate infor mation about his business, and there is no better time to start than at the beginning of the new year. Book keeping will give the farmer accu rate information on the cost of labor, machinery and raw material. It is important to know the cost of pro ducing each pound of cotton or hay and each bushel of com or oäta. Do not figure it on the basis that it will cost so much to prepare the land, so much for planting and so much for cultivation. That is like figuring in the air. What you want to know' is not what it costs anybody but what did it cost you on your farm as you raised it. Keep the record once and learn something new. Learning something new is like a tonic—it re vives youth, gives one a new grip on life and stimulates one to do things in a better way. A farmer should be a better com raiser next year than he is this year; keeping an accurate account of the cost of producing his crop will help him to improve. There is a fascination in doing anything well and to the best of one's ability, and there is an inspiration in accu rate information about the things in which we are interested. Bookkeeping is a method of accur ate and painstaking thinking about one's business. That's reason enough why a farmer should keep books.— Extension Division, Louisiana State University. Scientists Have an Interesting Meeting The American Association for the Advancement of Science, which met at St. Louis from December 29 to January 2, was most interesting and beneficial to the two thousand people in attendance, reports C. W. Edger ton, plant pathologist, experiment station, who, with W. R.
