That may sound harsh, but it is the

s.ave not done that because they have

The Farm Board program is the

A Non-Partisan New
Finds Pleasure in the II
Propagation of Fish
Mr. Nile Cook, who resides three
miles oust ot boone on a Middle Fork
:?f New River, was a brief but interesting:
visitor with The Demoreat yesterday
morning: and told an interesting
story of the private fisheries Hi
which he has provided on his farm.
Mr. Cook has for many years been
intensely interested in the protection
of the finny tribe and about two
years ago he concluded to increase
their numbers. Accordingly, he provided
a suitable fresh water pool and
stocked the same with rainbow trout,
secured from the hatchery. These
fish were cared for until they ^y(
reached a length of about five inches
and then the whole lot, consisting of
about S00. was released in Middle ?0
Fork near the Cook home. They have n*J
thrived and have furnished much of
the sport to be enjoyed fishing in the ox
mountain stream. j"
Mr. Cook then reared 1,500 brook be
trout in the same pond. These now fu
average about eight inches in length, ga
the larger being as long as twelve
inches. He now has a second pond in on
which 100 suckers, of an average ?Q]
weight of one pound are kept, these
having been caught from time to time
with hook and iine from the nearby NVfJ
power dam. The next move on the lo,
Cook farm will be a carp-stocked ....
nond. / ,H
\\ hen asked whether or not! he ex- Gr
pee ted to commercialize on the trout wi
being reared, Mr. Cook answered in
the negative. He realiizes that the a v
demand for this delieaey -would be 0f
heavy during the tourist season and fa,
the price high, however, he says that'
the speckled beauties will likely soon- at?
er or later be released in fishing waters
to replenish the dwindling wild .Aj
stock. He is thoroughly convinced ^0j
that the only way"*to have fish is to jlo,
provide more than are caught, and to ?OJ
close streams for a period of time ?
where possible. Mr. Cook is a real *
sportsman and more of his kind . '
would do more for conservation work )t.-(
than all the existing laws. ^

* audience using many statistics to
* prove his claims concerning the con- k

County farms. According to the F
speaker, Watauga County farmers to- ( tl
? day are producing not more than it
? one-half of the foodstuffs consumed <1
10 ky Watauga people. The foodstuffs tl
produced on Watauga farms, ac- a
ia cording to Mr. Hendricks, have an a
. annual value of $333,752. while the w
n. | food consumed by Wataugans in a o
?L,! year is valued at $808,233. A simple s
j subtraction would indicate that it rc- tl
hc! quires $561,181 more to feed the f
)(.i people of this county than the value d
| of their products. Mr. Hendricks it
id-j urged relief in this particular. The S
e<i! farms of Watauga County should f.
1 ni-oduce_uraeticaUy_the equivalent of t
the foodstuffs required for her in-j 3
hei habitants. The Caldwell man then i;
a! showed on a chart the ere os in which ti
j,cl Watauga was deficient, and the ones p
fen I that went beyond the required for 0
j self-support. The former, accordingly;
is_! to his figures, are corn, wheat, aots'ti

in-; ore cheese, milk, poultry and eggs. , ti

15 his remarks on balanced rations for I g
;n the flock and treatment and preven- s;

ii "Production of Dairy Products" as
-,1-; the subject of a most informative If
>i j lecture. The speaker gave formulas (
hci for the dairy cow's ration, her cave, ,
in- the treatment of disease, and advo- f
he cated a small herd for the small far- '
"or mer, providing a suitable marketing,:
le- place was available. 1'
ig- County Agent Turner again acl- i *
or- dressed the assemblage in the after-: *
his noon on "Beef Cattle in Watauga | ^

,v- "purebred bull, during the ten years',
5t- "f its usefulness, is worth $20,000 to| i
the community in which it thrives, j ;
ver and $10,000 more than a scrub would j <
ol- be worth ill the same community." '
This assertion was backed by actual I
,od figures. Turning to the dairying fea- '
ture of the cattle industry, the speakrt-i
er averred that the secret of good 1
i dairy cattle is "weeding and breedit
! ing and breeding, interspersed by a j
I little feeding." And then Mr. Turner!
rt- j explained what the Kraft-Phenix j
: Cheese Corporation is doing for the.
