If you see what you want, know
what you want, are sure that you
want it and need it. then go after
it. That's what photographer Sam
Braswell of Concord, N. C. did,
and he got it. Since he was a
small boy he had always wanted
to direct a brass band. He loves
band music, goes to hear them,
| has a large collection of band.
■ records which he plays frequent
ly. He is particularly fond of
Recently, he had an assign
ment at Fort Bragg. N. C., to
photograph the military events
there, commemorating Army Air j
Forces Day. He was watching the j
famous 100-piece 82nd Airborne'
Band go through complicated ’
maneuvers as they played. Sud- ■
denly that urge came upon him'
again to lead the band. He said. *
“I don’t know a note of music
from the Greek alphabet, but
I boy, I know when they’re doing
their stuff. Me, I’ve got band
records by the hundreds. I know
how those pieces, especially the
marches, go.’’ He talked with the
public relations officer about the
possibility of his directing the
band, but the officer wasn’t im
pressed. He talked to other of
ficers, and finally to the com
manding colonel of the air field.
“Sam, I don’t care if you lead
the boys,” he said laughing, “But
d’you reckon you can?” Sam said
he could. So orders went back
through channels for him to do
it. They played ‘Thunder
er.’ Sam knew' it by heart. The
players soon discovered it, and
it w r as a huge success. Sam said,
“I bet that w r as the best piece
they did all day. And. boy, that
was the happiest moment of my
Photographer Braswell did not
become a band director for a day
by simply standing on the side
lines and listening wistfully. He
wanted to direct that band, and
persisted in his request until it
was granted. He had been doing
a lot of preparing for years as he
listened to those band records.
Thais what it takes to get
sometning we really want; wish
for it, prepare for it, ask for it,
pray for it, and then go after it.
jesus Christ said, “Ask and ye
shall receive; seek and ye shall
find; knock and it shall be open
ed unto you.” Most of us want to
oe better than we are. We ad
mire those who have power and
influence over others for good.
vVe can be like them if we want
to earnestly enough. The reason
we don’t do these things it that
we lack confidence in our ability
to do them. We need self confi
dence. There’s no better way to
get it than to go into partnership
wih Almighty God. “With God
ill things are possible.” When
we’ve agreed with Him that a
■ertain thing is right, that we
want to do it. that we ought to
Io it. then it’s only a matter of
doing it. Saint Paul wrote. “I can

One way of saving that hay
ana giaia uus winter is oy scea
ing your snap Dean lana as well
as any inner iana that is avail
able now to any one 01 many lall
and winter grazing crops, uume
oi the mixtures
for this area are as follows:
1. Rye, i l /2 Du., Winter oats,
2 bu., Barley, bu.
2. Rye 3 to 4 bu.
3. Rye, 2 bu., Crimson clover,
15 to 20 pounds.
4. Ryegrass, 15 to 20 lbs., Crim
son Clover, 15 to 20 lbs.
5. Barley, 2 bu., Hairy Vetch,
Any one of these mixtures
should be seeded as soon as pos
sible but not later than Septem
ber 15. By applying 400 to 60u lbs.
of a w'ell balanced fertilizer at
the time of seeding and then ap
plying 100 to 200 lbs., of nitrate
of soda in early spring one may
assure himself of the maximum
grazing during a period when it
has proven expensive to keep cat
tle in good condition. These tem
porary grazing crops would be
well w’orth while as a cover for
the soil alone on most of the
fields since they reduce erosion
to a minimum and add organic
matter to the soil, but the most
immediate benefit is that of bet
ter fed, healthier and thereby
more profitable livestock.
