The results have been 111 decidedly satisfactory that now a: ai rong movement is on foot to secure e planting of perhaps as much as I ? 0 acres of the weed this year. The j y* ovenient is being sponsored bv the atauga Livestock Association, the, ily farm group, and later a Tobac- hi Growers Association is expected Wi be formed; bi Tobacco growing was to have been scussed at the Farmers Institute] >t week by Mr. Irvin B.

Sim A meeting of those who expect to oi ke part in this new phase of Wa- at uga County agriculture is being fcc ranged and definite announcement Sr the date is expected to be made tv ring the month. Mr. Wells pro- gj ses to have here at that time Mr. yde Austin, president of the Aus- t? i Tobacco Company, who is re-j0f ited to be the best informed man ev the production of tobacco in the th rley belt. cb It is suggested that in a section of 64 tin try where people have had no ui perience in growing tobacco, that se e acre be taken as a maximum, un- in >s it is found that ample facilities tu e available for housing more, with ec sufficient.air space to prevent what w known as house-burning. This is si vital factor due to the fact that aii use-burned tobacco has no value. le It is expected that no less than 'ty Wataugans will raise some w lrley this year and some of the fa onsors of the movement are hope- le 1 that twice that many may be- ci me interested.

F. Parrish, Extension Poultry Spealist of State College, and Profes>v Coley, of State College. Mr. Parrish's subject was "Poulv Production in Watauga," and his istvuetive remarks embodied the ire of the flock from the hatching jriod to the period of egg producon. The speaker, with the aid of tarts and illustrations, explained roper diets for flocks, the culling r inferior fowls, housing and treatment of diseases. He advocated pure-; red strains, and urged the necessity keeping blood lines clean if the oultry business is really to be devel-l ted into a big-money proposition. Professor Coley represented R. B. theridge, chief of the Division of arkets, Department of Agriculture, ho was scheduled to deliver an adB'oss on the second day. Professor bley used "Marketing" as his subct, and while his talk was more or sx spontaneous, the good advice hich it carried was well received by [e huge crowd which attended the ednesday sessions. The marketing epert advised the organization of a arketing association among the irmers of Wataucra. ami showori fho any advantages of co-operation nonjr the tillers of the soil.
