OCR FOOD ADMINISTRATOR. V
Henry Page Writes of What He Ex
pects of Henderson County.
To the Editor French Broad Hustler,
Hendersonville, N. C.
To produce the results that are im
perative if our Country and its Allies
are to win victory for Liberty and ile
docracy in the world war. the Food ach
ministartion must have the cooperation
of every possible agency that can be
made a factor in carrying put the pro
gram which is necessary for the suc
cessful prosecution of the war. - No
agency can render greater service than
can the press of the country.
As Food Administrator, charged with
producing the required results in this
State, I feel that I can with confidence,
call upon papers of North Carolina lei
their hearty and effective cooperation.
I am well aware that already they have
rendered invaluable and unselfish ser
vice influencing food production r.ui
conservation. I am writing to request:
1st, your continuance in this wor;
2nd, your cooperation with this oLuce
in thi sand other work; and rd. that
you submitto me any suggestions tba.
might be of value in the more effective
carrying out of the food administration
program in North Carolina.
It is evident to me that, even
our armies being mobilized and win
troops already in France, a large pQ
portion of our people have not yet re
alized the seriousness of the war situa
tion as- affecting themselves; ana a
large part of the work of the Food ad
ministration will be directed toward
geting the people of our State -as in
dividuals to render- suc service in this
emergency as can be Tendered by every
man, woman and child, thereby xbrir. 3
ing the war to a quicker and cheaper,
as well as a victorious, conclusion "
The cooperation of the . newspapers
of the State must be depended up.n to
a very great extent to bung aboa. tle
desired realization on the part,ot e
people, and to secure their active .
terest and cooperation.
The copy will be sent out from
this office will be prepared by newspa
per men of experience and we shall
endeavor to see that you are not-bu-
dened with matter which would not b?
worth space in your paper.
With assurance of the apprecla!or

SEND SOLDIERS PRODUCE
; SOMETIME 'rHIS'WEEK.
Anyone Who Has .Vegetables or Fruit
to Send Coast ArtiUery Boys Take
Them to City Hall.
Chief of Police, Ottis Powers, has
volunteered to see that all produce and
vegetables and fruits sent to the Hen
derson county unit in the great army
stationed at Fort Caswell; is properly
crated and shipped to the boys.
Last week the Hustler printed a let-'
r, from Lieut. Belk. InNrhich h
stated that produce was very hard to
get down t here He stated that if
the home people would .ship them some
vegetables that they would gladly pay
the express charges. -
The . Hustler - made an" appeal
through its i editorial columns and as
a result, a great deal of food stuff has
been shipped. Slayden Fakes has just
shipped three barrels of fine apples.
T3. H. T. Bly has shipped a fine supply
of grapes and quite a -few are prepar
ing to heavily load the express this
week with vegetables..
One man Is said to have made the
statement that he expected to do his
bit for the war hv picking four bushels
of, beans for the boys of the 6th com
pany at Fort Caswell
"GROW MORE WHEAT."
There are about 10,000,000 bushels of
wheat produced in North Carolina each
year, while amount Consumed, is about
13,000,000 bushels. According to these
figures we must grow 3,000,000 bushels
more wheat than we are at present
growing, in order, to furnish our own
wheat. This will- mean an increase
of about 25 per cent ahove the amount
usually harvested in this county. The
average yield of wheat per acre in
North Carolina for the 10 years from
1907 to U16 was 10.5 bushels. This is
the year of all years when a great
effort should be made to increase the
yield per acre.
. Wheat, as you all know, does best oa
well-drained loam, silt loam, and some
of the clay soils; while light,, sandy
soils and poorly drained clay soils are
not adapted to wheat Wheat should
not be sown on land that is not well
drained, or on land that is subject to
overflow or where water stands after
a rain, for the plants will not thrive on
such land. Too much water in the soil
is, liable, to i result in winter killing.
-If possible the land should be, brok
en sometime before time of seeding and
allowed to settle. A good seed-bed
should be made by disking and harrow
ing thoroughly before sowings Land
that has previously been. In clover, say
beans, cowpeas or velvet beans will be
excellent for wheat. A soil to be good
for wheat should " contain planty of
vegetable matter and plant food and
should not be acid or sourJ " '
As most of our soils here .are sour it
will be found that an application of
lime will l)e beneficial to wheat. This
should be applied, if possible, a few
weeks before time of sowing. You will
find on the bottom soils here witn
plenty of organic matter in them, that
llime and phosphoric acid will be all
that is needed to take a good wheat
crop. While on thi uplands some

yield of wheat when phosphoric acid

- Most of you know that it is best to
sow wheat early enough to let it get
well rooted before the winter freezing
comes on. You may sometimes see
late sown wheat make a very gooa
crop, but it is an exception- rather
than the rule. At the Iredell County
test farm the following was the result
of several plantings: Sown October
ytMri was 31.3 bushels per acic;
sown October 2St., -'eld was 27 bush
els pe racre; sown November 9th, yield
was 23.6 bushels per acre; sown Not
ember'23rd, yield was 22.6 bushels per
acre; sown December 7th, yield was
21.6 bushels per acre; sown Decembei
2-st. yield was 17.3 bushels per acre.
From this you see that the early sow
ing was 31.3 bushels per acre. From
tMt you see that the early sowing
yielded almost twice as much as the
late sowing. .
, A to the oroper time to sow, Mr.
Franklin Sherman, chief in entomolon
at Raleigh, has written me the follow
ing: "With reference to dates to sow
