Big Fat, Oily Hog Brings
Hard or Firm Meat Ani
Washington, May -29.-The big, fat
oily hog is not the real money-maker
according to information, which Sena
tor Dlal has recently secured froni
departments. The type of hog just
mentioned on the contrary, is sold al
a milch lower 'priec per pound than th
"firm" or "hard" meat hog. Little us
it might be believed there is an ac
tual difference of between live anu six
cents per pound, '.he ruling price re
ceived in the South, andl nine cents and
.sometimes more paid for the corn-fed
hog of north and northwest.
Snator Dial was astounded a few
days ago whei lie visited one of the
government eXmperiment stations - in
Maryland, not far from 'Washington,
and discovered that there was a con
siderable difference in .prices paid the
hog-raiser for the peanut-fed, oily hog,
and the one fed on a coiin diet in the
grcat northwest.
Taking his observations gained at
thi experiment station as a starting
point Senator )ial carried these further
an .what he shoss in a statement is
sued here today will undoubtedly op
el the eyes of the progressive fariers
of the Smith to the wreat annual loss
es they are suffering through the rais
ing and nimarketing of a poor (uality of
hog. It is Senator Dial's belief, from
what he has discovered, that when the
intelligent people of the South find
what they are losing by feeding an In
ferior diet anid how much more money
they could get for their product wheni
grown of the "-irm" or "hard tyipe,
they vill lose little time in immediate
ly follkrxing the more progressive
methods of the thrifty hog raisers of
the corn-belt section who are able to
command top-notch prices because they
have for sale tile real prime article In
hog meat.
Senator Di'al said that assuming tile
differenlco in the southern and western
hog to be but four or flive cotns a
pound, and he believes it much more,
the yearly money loss to the hog rais
era in the South amounts to hundreds
of thousands of dollars.
The essential peints ipon which Sen
ator Dial is endeavoring to get light
are these:
1. Tile various causes resulting in
the production of soft and oily pork
in the South with its consequent money
loss to the people of .the. South; t2)
the time eloment involved -in the pro
duction and elimination of the oily con
dition in hogs,* (3) the etaps necessary
in production and steps necessary In
the elimination of the oil condition in

Less goney for Farmer Than
mal, Senator Dial Finds.
0'From the licaiut pasture, usually
without any other feed, they are sent
to marhIet and, of course, produce soft
and oily pork.
'Data fron typical northern and
1western plants as well as that from
,those in the South, Indicate that the
corn-fedi hog during the past year was
marketed at an average weight of over
fifty 'pounds greater than that from
the South. Differences in finish, car
cass yield, and weights of northern
and western raised hogs in compari
son with those from the South account,
in large measure, for the low price
laid for the latter.
"Our soutliern farmners must improve
their methods of -breeding and feeding,
cooperate closer through sales and
shipping associations, and find 'ways
,of extending the period for marketing
their hogs more evenly throughout the
year than is their present custom of'
selling all they have in a- few months
before they may hope to effectively re
duce the live-hog differentials now ob
taning li tIhe 'South. In this way on
ly do I see any chance for our p1)ole
to receive full vale for their hogs.

ture and others well informed on tiese I
imatters sent there to coop!erate vith

Greenwood, May 26.--The history,
achievements and hopes of Lander col
lege iwere unfolded last night before
the eyes of countless friends, who had
come to view the historical pageant,
the crowning event of Lander college's
Jubilee year. Over 2,000 spectators
witnessed the pageant last night and
many more are expected to see it
again tonight. The pageant IF the be
ginning of what is 'believed to be the
greatest commencement in the history
of the school, the celebration of the
50th birthday of the college.
The pa cant was-given iII the nat
ural ampi theater behind the dormi
tory under cloudless skies. Htach era
in the development of the college was
vividly depicted from the first days at
Wil-liamston as Williamston Female
college until the present day.
IWrapaped in the sympathetic shad
ows, older students of Lander lived
again the days of their girlhood as fa
miliar scenes -paused before them. Once
more they- saw Dr. Samuel Lander,
acted .by his son, Dr. Tertius Lander,
lead the college girls to , the famous
Williamston spring, instructing them
as he went in the natural sciences.
The nwork and qplay of the old college
was shown and on the grass carpeted
stages, girls of the '80s once more
played the gentle game of "graces''.
F'rom the removal of the college to.
Greenwood until now, each phase of
development was -porfrayed. The
growth of the college from a small
school to the' present modern college
for women under the direction of Dr.
and Mrs. John 0. Willsoni was indicat
ed 'and 4iander's dreams foi- the fut
ture Were illustrated. Landerf'sacri
flees and' service in the world nwar were
brought out vividly in scenes, showing
the farewell 'to loved' onea ,going over
seas, the banishment of luxuries and

Bankers Serve Notice on Berlin Au
thorlilles. Chance for Loan.
1Paris, M.ay 26.-The committee a
internatiomrl bankers in session her
this evening served notice) onl German
that further consideration ofC$1,000,
000,000 loan to the German govern
mIent is virtually out of the questioi
until Germany acccots in full the con
ditions of the ultimatum of the rep
aratiohs commission, which ex.pire
May 31, and also gives adequate guar
antees that the inflation of Germany':
currency will be stopped immediate
ly. The committee then decided t(
adjourn until May 31 to awaIt the de
csion of Germany.
The conclusion of the bankers wa:
arrived at during their meeting thi:
afternoon which was attended by Kar
lBergmuann as representative of Ger
eel I
- f
Le.*n, S;C
many. -Borgmann Immediately telc
- phoned the decislon of the bankers
1 to Beilin.
In reparations circles tonight tile
1 view was advanced that the action of
I the financIers probably would result
- in complete acceptallceo by Germany of
I all their conditions. It was further
stat(ed that acquiesCence by Germany
I in the reparations co1mission's con
ditions; probably would be 1productive
of a loan of 111010 than $1,000,000,00)
,ince the bankers have determined
that a large 1oan11 could be arranged
utider these circumstances.
The financiers Completed their in
quiry into the state of Germany's
ffinances at this afternoon's session
and it was explained that they had
reached a point where Germany's
guarantees must be forthcoming be
fore tie Committee C(ould discuss the
details of a loan, the security for. It
and many other points.
Tihe fact that tile international
bankers have beell able to sec good
possibilities for a loan, provided Ger
many subscribes to certain conditions,
Is regarded very optimistically in
reparations luarters where it was
pointed out tonight that the German
governmillent could hardly afford to do
othervise than agree.
