Tennessee IFarm News- PREPARED BY DIVISION OF EXTENSION, UNIVER SITY OF TENNESSEE. Select Seed Com From Standing Stalks. Pawing over the ears of corn af ter they have been stored away in the crib and picking seed from the likeliest looking ears is a method that belongs to the ox-team and the cradle. Uptodate farmers ' nowadays choose their seed corn from the standing stalks where they can ob serve the growing conditions; and thus often immensely increase the value of a given lot of seed. When selecting seed corn in the field, keep your eye out for the sturdy upright stalk of medium height and thickness, with short joints and broad leaves carried well down, which stands in an average soil. Then look for an ear well ma tured and set fairly low, of medium size cob, a not too large butt, and a hu?k protecting the tip. Remember ing also that one good ear is better than two nubbins, be satisfied with the single good ear on the stalk when thft stand is thick. Another advantage of selecting corn in this way is that stalk char acteristics can be noted and selec tions made accordingly. For in stance, the more or less hereditary tendency to produce suckers can be ' reduced by selection; stalks blown over by storms are inherently weak onrl nhnnld be avoided; under uoi circumstances should ears from. diseased stalks be considered. When selecting corn in .the field it is often hard for the grower to oay 4s much attention as he would I like to the ear characteristics- It is m a 1 A A a good plan, therefore, to seieci iwu or three times as much seed as is needed, and to go over it again m the spring with an eye to ear char acteristics- Often growers carry forward good seed from one spring to the next in case of emergencies that might arise from unfavorable weather or storing conditions. Hogs Will Make Money Out of Big Corn Crop. On account of the relative high price of hogs, many farmers' have planned to produce fall litters of pigs, instead of fattening their brood f Via market, according to 0UO v the specialists of the Division of Extension, University of Tennessee. The ratio between the prices nf hogs and corn makes this a commenda ble practice. With corn at present prices, 8 or 9 cent hogf should re turn liberal profits, and farmers who raised a good spring pig crop should consider themselves fortu nate. With another big corn crop practically assured the production of fall pigs has been encouraged. While hoes may not hold their pre sent high market position, it would take a material drop in prices to make feeding unprofitable at pre sent corn values Men who have gone through similar periods of de pression in years past say that once again hogs have come to the rescue of the farmer. Time and again hogs have "rooted'' the farmer out of distress, and there is every reason to believe they will do it again. An abundance of corn puis good pork prices bid fair to hold up the mor als of the farmer, provide him with money to pay his interest and taxes, and encourage him to stand ready for another year. Farm Breeding Pen. Thei question of a special .breeding pen on the farm is apt to bring forth doubts' of its being a workable plan. However, it is easy enough and can be managed in at least two ways that any farm womancan carry out says Mrs. Kate M. Wells, poultry specialist, Division of Extension The most important point is fur nishing a separate house or room for the roosting and laying quarters for the breeders. This can most easi- lvbe done by putting a partition in in nnA pnd of the poultry house, large enough to house the breeders?. Twenty-five hen? can be housed in a Zxtfi or a 6x12 room, arranging it as to roosts, nests, feed hoppers and water vessels as in the larger laying house. Community Club Helps Get Preacher. According to a recent reprot from F. C. McCuskey, agricultural agent for Franklin County, the communi ty organization at Center Grove has as-isted in securing a preacher for that community, and the organiza tion of a Sunday school, and at a recent meeting raised $75 00 to help pay the preacher for the next six months. This is another dem onstration of the good that can I e accomplished when people of a, com munity will act as a unit. Business Women ot Town Get ting in Touch With Business Women of Country. Evidence of the fact that the old social barrier which has existed be tween people of the rural districts and those of the towns in past gen erations is fast becoming a thing of the past in Tennessee was clearly demonstrated at the recent farmero' institute at'Columbia. The Business and Professional Women's Club of Columbia did much to make the Homemakers section of the institute a success. They furnished a rest room for the members of the Home maker's section which added much to their comfort. The town women also took an active part in helping Uie rural women stage a dress page ant, an evening's entertainment put on to show dressing of farmer per iods and to illustrate proper dress for different present day occasions. Many of themv attended the program provided entertainment for the ru ral women while in the city and otherwise devoted much time to making their stay pleasant as well as profitable. Co-operation of the women of the towns and cities of the state with rural women in their meetings has bien noted on frequent occasions in recent years by Extension workers of the University of Tennessee and thy look on it as one of the hope ful sigqs of the times. The business nf the towns are getting in touch with the business women of the farms. The farm women are finding that the women of the towns are good people to know and the town women are beginning to feel the same way about the country women, and so the old line that has existed so long is being rubbed out and in its place a spirit of co operation and helpfulness is spring ing up which will mean a happier and more contented womanhood in Tennessee- - , , ARE YOU GUILTY r "IT express carrying an ckage from . u moflwwWMnse was accosted by a local dealer.
