Kill Those Hogs
I "Folks that are killing hogs
; should plan on having all of the
'hogs saughtered at' least by the
middle of February if they are go
ing to cure the meat on the farm,"
advises John Christian, Extension
animal husbandry specialist at
North Carolina State College. Chris
tian says from hogs that are kill
ed in March sometimes becomes
off-flavored due to the high tem
peratures during March and April.
Christian points out that in the
event the hogs are not going to
weigh enough for slaughter until
that time, it probably would be ad
visable to have these animals pro
cessed at your local processing
Kill only the number of hogs that
[ can be useed to advantagee by the
family at one time, urges Chris
tian. For, he points out, if more
than four or five are to be killed,
it would be a good idea to spread
that killing time over three weeks
to a month. He believes that in tbis
way, better use can be made of the
fresh pork carcass and the by pro
Christian says the safety limit 01
fresh pork in the freezer locker is
abou: six months. He points out
that if it is kept much over this
length of time, the pork is liable to
become off-flavored, or perhaps the
fat will become slightly rancid.'
Seasoned sausage should not be
kept in the locker for more than
three months. Any meat that has
salt in it will not keep well in the
freezer, he adds. In the event that
a family has a large volume of
sausage. Christian advises that they
freeze some of the ground pork be
fore it is seasoned. Then take it
from the locker and season it later
when there Is a need for it.
Christian says some folks prefer i
to stuff the sausage into caings or I
into musin bags. They hang this j
sausage in the smokehouse and age '
it. This produces a sausage with
an aged flavor, says Christian, and
it will keep in this way for a long
period of time. .
Governor L. H. Hodges looks over a copy of the February issue
of Holiday Magazine, which features North Carolina. The article,
by Ovid William* Pierce, describes North Carolina as a state of
"seascapes and lofty peaks, of hard-working cities, and high
minded universities." " - ?' I
Story Of North Carolina Told
In February Issue Of Holiday
A full-scale portrait of North
Carolina, from the sands of the
Atlantic seaboard to the valleys of'
the smokies five hundred miles a- '
way, is featured in the February
issue of Holiday. The article,' by
Ovid Williams Pierce, extends over!
thirteen pages of the magazine and
is illustrated with sixteen photo. 1
graphs, many in color.
Pierce contrasts the ragged!
ringes along the remote eastern
'oast, which noly recently have
born traffic from the outside world, !
against the coastal plains with theli
remnants of the "old south". He '
pictures the river plantations
small towns, negro counties, and
long stretches of swamp, heat and
pine. Yet, he claims that the rich
tobacco markets in Greenville, Wil
son, Henderson and Rocky Mount
keep this area from being complet
ely buried in the past.
"The Piedmont," he continues,
"is a proper complement to the
eastern half of the state. It is the
region of cities where all roads
lejds to Raleigh. Durham, Char
lotte, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, |
and Chapel Hill.
The author devotes part of the
article to an analysis of the Uni
versities of Duke and North Car
olina. "Both of them," he writes,
"are producing an enlightened in
tellectual liberalism." He depicts
Chapel Hill as the center of the
southern mind and Duke Univer
sity as one of the great medical
centers of the south.
Piet-ce reveals that from the iso
pted, cloud wrapped Blue Ridge
mountains have come the young in
to the mills and colleges of the
Piedmont. He describes the rapidly
vanishing tradition of hotel life as
the older people remember it; the
great reservoir of folk manufactur
ing, and the well organized handi
Claims The Yield'
Makes The Profit
Nathan Harris of Earn City,
Route S, asked his neighbors, "It
1 produce four bales next year, wiU
you 'give two shirts ?" And he had
reason to ask, says Wilson Negro
County Agen: W. G. Pierce.
Harris produced two 400 pound
bales of cotton per acre this year
over his previous yields of three
fourths to one bale, says Pierce.
But what really got Harris stirred
up about cotton production was a
community farmer's meeting last
January. Increased yields per
acre were stressed at the meeting.
The farmers decided to select a
cotton "Champion" ft the end of
the year, and they would present
him with an award.
Harris decided he would follow the
cotton recommendations as sug
gested. He selected a good field,
planted a wilt resistant variety
seed very thick in the drill, used
500 pounds of 5-10-10 fertilizer per
acre, thinned to a stand of three to
four stalks per foot of row, and
kept his eye on Mr. Boll Weevil,
Last gionth. all the farmers par
I ticipating- in the contest ? brought
their gin records to determine the
yield per acre. Harris was at the
I top of the list. Aas a reward, his
| neighbors presented him with a
j beautiful cotton shirt and crowned
j him "Cotton Champion of 1956."
; Harris was delighted? but he adds
| that he's going along with the com
munity motto for 1957, "It's not the
number of acres you plant that
j counts, but the yield and profit per
craft schools of the region.
The author completes his journey
by way , of Asheville and ends at
what he terms the state's last wall,

In North Carolina, he concludes,
"There is the challenge of change
against a counselling past."
