THE STUBBLE LAND
It is of the vital importance that
everery acre devoted to growing; of
?mall graiu such aa: whet, oats, rye
and barley, should be put intosome
food crop as soon as the grain is
harvested. If the food production
program of the State is to be suc
cessful, not one single farmer in
North Carolina should overlook this
matter, and not one should fail to
plant every acre possible.
The Agriculture Extension Service
haa found that in some section
farmers are planning to ntaiize all
of this grown, but in other sections
they are planning to allow it to
remain follow for the rett of the
season- Every acre unplanted is
that much loss in food, and will
cause just that much of a serious

and humus cantents when the vines

After commencement, fifteen of
the girls, accompanied by Pros. G.
E. Lineberry, and chairman of
board of trustees, Hon. J. H. Matt
hews, visited Washington, D. C.
They went by way of Baltimore and
spent a day there, and then three
days in Washington. "They enjoyed
very much their visits to historical
places, especially the Government
Bnildings, many of which have been
closed to visitors, since the begin
ning -of t?# war, bnt through the
courtesy of Cong. Claude Kicthen
and his influence with the depart
ment, they were allowed to visit
many of these. They enjoyed for a
short time the debate in the Senate
on the "Chambeilain Reeolntion,"
and in the House the final debate on
"An Indian Land Claim." All came
back delighted with their trip and
very appreciative of the courtesy
shown by friends in Wash, especial
ly Senator Simmons and also Cong,
Kitchen, who entertained them very
pleasantly in his office and told them
his wife and sisters were educated
at Chowan College.
The eneigy of all the hands of
college is employed in preparing for
the winter. Several tons of fli.e
hay -clover, oats and vetch, have
lust bern put in the barn, and the
canning season has begun. Garden
peas and snap beans are being put
op now. In the next few week
some three thousand cans will be
stored away for winter use. A fine
crop of Irish potatoes are nearly
reedy to dig, ann several acreehmve

special potatoe house for keeping;
these will be ready for oae in the
fall. The farm, garden, and dairy

food for the the girls, but will re

reasonable rate, even in these war
