An Appeal to Farmers, Bankers
and Business Men in the
Bradford Knapp, chief of the Co
operative Extension work in Agricul
tural and Home Economics, U. S. De
partment of Agriculture, sends out
the following appeal:
"For nearly three years I have
done my best to warn you to prepare
for the present emergency. For
years we have tried to encourage di
versification in the South as a basis
for greater safety, both agricultural
and economic. Since the war began
in Europe we have urged SAFE
FARMING. When prices were low
you did well and made great pro
gress. When cotton went to eighteen
cents and over you made large profits
becaune of your progress in SAFE
FARMING, but some were tempted to
go br.ck to cotton. In common with
manv other men, I have tried to warn
you of that danger. Cotton hs not j
been high but has only increased in
somewhat less proportion' than food
"Now The Crisis Is Here! This
great Nation must arouse herself for
a mighty struggle for liberty. Peo
ple without food and armies without
rations are conquered before they can
begin to fight. Our greatest safety
now lies in Food Production and in
saving the waste products.
"If the South is to be Strong she
must have Food. If this country is to
be Strong she must be well fed and
have an abundance to sustain those
friendly people who are even now
righting our battles for liberty and
"Transportation may be disturbed.
Your own defense requires you to
Produce and Conserve your Food sup
ply. Don't Fail Now! It is a Na
tional problem of defense as impor
tant as men and guns, ships and can
non. "Business Men, if seed is short can
vass the situation like patriots and
get the seed for farmers. Arrange
the credits. Furnish farmers seed
corn, soy beans, cowpeas, velvet
beans, peanuts, sorghum, etc., at cost.

See that all things necessary to help
farmers are done. Of course, we
must produce cotton, but with a mod

will be enough. Do not sacrifice
acres of Food to increase your acre

warehouses, the feed mills, shellers,
cleaning stations, creameries, packing
plants, etc. ready. You must do your

"Farmers, in your Unions, clubs
and other organizations, resolve to
Use The Best Methods now. When
the Nation faces a crisis we must
have the best farming in its history.
Labor is short, hence the best tools
and all labor-saving devices must be
used to make it possible for every
farm laborer to cover as much ground
as possible and do the most efficient
work. Farm women and girls have
important work to do in the garden,
the orchard, in raising poultry, and
especially in canning, preserving and
conserving our food supply.
"Your County Agent and Home
Demonstration Agent become more
important officers now than ever be
fore. Your State Extension Divis
ion at the Agricultural College will
have sbill more important duties.
Look to these for counsel and advice
in this new burden of extra work.
The County Agent will, without
doubt, have new duties and responsi
bilities in the near future.

the breeding stock. Don't sell cows,

hens. Keep them for breeding. If

Boys Are Growing Corn.
If all the farmers in the State
show as much enthusiasm in their
work this year as the farm boys are
in enrolling in the corn clubs, Florida
will be able to feed herself. That is
the opinion of G. L. Herrington, State
Agricultural Club Agent to the Uni
versity of Florida extension division.
Nearly twelve hundred boys are en
rolled in the work, with the number
from four counties yet to be received.
If their work is as successful this
year as was the work of the 450 boys
who reported last year, the boys will
produce more than sixty thousand
bushels of corn. And with corn hit
ting prices of over a dollar a bushel,
the crop may amount to nearly a
hundred thousand dollars in value.
For the 450 boys last year made
an average production of 42.1 bushels.
The best three yields were more than
one hundred bushels to the acre, while
some of the yields went below twen-
