This will result in about 50 rhite and colored Southport famies having fine gardens. Many mall drains or ditches run into le main one ana me gtuucuci* re supposed to keep these small rains opened. The swamp gardens along Fidlers Drain have long been noted or the fine vegetables produced dth very little labor or fertilizrs. In many of them the soil is jo soft and spongy to permit lowing. In such cases rakes and pades are resorted to. The soil eing very light, it is comparaively easy to prepare and cultiate a swamp garden, even where o plowing can be done. loal Arid Ice Co.

The canning gar stamp was misused by milins, he added, who used the sugthus obtained for table or king purposes rather than for nning. J The reason for tightening uft e OPA official said, is that our gar stocks at this time of year e lower than in years, while ilitary needs are greater. Cuban oduction is down, and domestic oduction cannot be increased beuse of manpower and machinery ortages.
