Sometimes the groups are on hand for an activity-packed day, pulling out for their home communities when evening falls.

Reynolds Grins Over Tobacco David Reytiolds, farmer of Hertford County, broke into wide grin recently when asked about his tobacco. He had just finished resetting his 4.8 acre al lotment using only two dozen plants. *rtie crop was up to a good stand, while almost every leaf grower in the area was looking for more plants. Melvin L. Johnson, Hertford farm agent, wanted to know why Reynolds had succeeded where others had failed. Reynolds told him he had started out using only recommended practices with this year’s crop. Asked if he had any blue mold trouble CALVERT CALICO: Sitting at the Lord Calvert HoUl bar fn Miami, charming Mlii St. Clair Rogeri drinks Calico, her favorite summer drink made of coconut milk and Calvert whiskey. The coconut on the bar was plucked off one of the palm trees around th« hotel o«ot. in his plant bed earlier, Rey nolds quipped, “Nope, I never let It get in.” Using a two-year-old bucker type sprayer and three bags of fermate, he sprayed his 700 square yard plant bed eight or nine times (he doesn't remem ber the exact numljer of appli cations). This protected the plants from Ixith crowding by weeds and blue mold. He rememliers only that he' sprayed twice each week for three or four weelcs, and that once it was necessary to spray three times in one week be cause a heavy rain followed his regular spraying. As the farmer and his county agent walked over to the still bountiful plant bed recently a small group of neighbors was pulling plants to reset an acre. In all, there were enough left to set six acres. “That's about the story on tobacco plants in Hertford County.”, says John son. “Wherever a good sprasring or dusting job was done, there were plenty of plants.
