President Coolidge celebrated
his 55th birthday in the Black

cake lit up with 55 candles formed
a part of the menu.
The government treasury show

Receipts amounted to $4,129,000,

The man-hunt for Broadus Mil
ler, the negro who assaulted and
slew Gladys Kincaid, 15-year old
Morganton girl, on Tuesday night,
June 21st, ended last Sunday
morning. Commodore Burleson,
a hardy mountaineer, came upon
Miller in the mountains near Lin
ville Falls. The negro was armed
with a shot gun with a single
shell. He fired on Burleson who
escaped behind a tree. Burleson
fired five shots from his pistol,
killing the negro instantly. Thus
ended One of the most determined
man hunts in the annals of the
state. Rewards for Miller, dead
or alive, aggregated $2000.
Commander Richard E. Byrd
and his three companions, who
took off Wednesday morning from
Long Island for a non-stop flight
for Paris ended in a landing in
the English Channel, near Ver
Sur-Mer, 200 yards from the
French shore at 3:30 Friday morn
ing. They flew over France for
hours, but a dense fog obscured
everything from view. In the
landing they suflered some slight
bruises, but they swam ashore.
Since, they have received the
plaudits of the French in a degree
that seems not to have been dulled
by the honors heaped upon Col.
Lindbergh. They were in the air
Big Time Promised at Farm Picnics.
The 20,000 or more citizens of
North Carolina who visited the
branch station farms during the
annual picnics and field days held
last summer know what to expect
at the field days this year, but
even they will be surprised.
"A good time will be had by
all," promises Dr. R. Y. Winters,
director of the experiment sta
tion. Dr. Winters is working
with Fred E. Miller, in charge of
test farms, and the several super
intendents to see that good pro
grams and valuable exhibits are
prepared for each gathering.
The series begins with the pic
nic' at the Blackland station near
Statesville on July 21st. Then
there will be a break due to the
State Farmers' Convention at
Raleigh, July 26 to 28. Immedi
ately following the'State Conven
tion, however the picnics begin
again with the one at the Tobacco
Branch Station, scheduled for Au
gust 4. Then there is another
vacant week due to the meeting
of the National Soybean Associa
tion at Washington on August 9,
10 and 11. On August 18, the
field day will be held at the
Mountain Branch Station near
Swannanoa; on September 1, will
be the picnic for the Upper Coast
al Station near Willard.
Last year about 21,000 persons
attended these events and this
year the college authorities invite
all farmers and their friends liv
ing adjacent.to one of the stations
to make plane to attend the picnic
held at that station. A good
?peaking program is being ar
ranged. There will be trips of
inspection over the fields and
grounds and there will be exhib
its showing the nature of ;he
work being dons on the farm.
Much time and labor will be
expended to make the pienie suc

Leave Cotton Thick
For Biggest Yields
Don't chop the cotton too thinly
on the row but leave two planus
the width of the hoe apart aud
get bigger yields.
That's the advice of P. H.
Kime, plant breeder aud agrono
mist at the North Carolina Exper
iment Station of State College.
"The results which we have
had in testing thicker spacing of
cotton are in line^with results
secured by farmers and other
experiment stations in the South,"
says Mr. Kime. "If we are to
get the largest yield of seed cotton
per acre, it is nesessary to have
from 15 to 20 thousand plants on
each acre of land. The largest
yields that we have secured in
our spacing tests were made
where the plants were eight inches
apart in the row with one plant
to the hill or 12 inches apart in
the row with two plants to each
hill. Spacing the hills 15, 18 and
24 inches apart has not given us
as good yields as the closer spac
ings. The yields on the wider
spacings may be increased, how
ever, by leaving 3 to 4 plauts to
each hill but even with this the
yields are not as large as from
the closer spacings."
The reason why cotton produces
heavier when closely spaced is
that the vegetative growth is re
duced and the plants fruit earlier.
This latter is an important matter
under boll weevil conditions, ex
plains Mr. Kime. He states that
the wider spacings, require more
labor with the hoe and it is usual
ly difficult to secure a uniform
stand of 3 and 4 plants at regular
For practical purposes, it is
safe to chop the cotton the width
of the hoe leaving an average of
two plants in each hill.
Tarheel Chickens Will Visit Canada.
Two pens of Tarheel poultry,
oue containing a trio of Silver
Leghorns and the other a trio of
Golden Wyandottes, will be exhi

of the major prizes were won by.
these members. One club mem

ribbons on some of the little
known varieties. As a result,
Harvey C. Wood of the Garden
Poultry show wired State College
asking that exhibits of Silver
Leghorns and Golden Wyandottes
from this State be sent for inclu
sion iu the national exhibit.
The poultry will be selected
from the flocks of Catawba Coun
ty club members and the birds
will be shipped directly to New
York by County Agent J. W.
J. M. Gray, assistant director
of extension at State College, and
Dr. B. F. lv/mpp, head of the
poultry department, state that
this is a very unusual honor to
come to North Carolina. At the
Third World's Paultry Congress,
the birds from North Carolina
will be exhibited with fine poultry
from every nation of the earth.
This honor is but an added tri
bute to the rapid strides being
made in poultry growing in this
State, say these agricultural lead
ers. Since 1015, the college has
conducted active work in poultry
with rural boys and girls. In re

to bear profitable fruit.
