Seeretarv of the Treasury.
Farmers Are Willing.
H. E. Carter, Secretary-Treat
urerer of the Stokes countv na
tional farm loan association of
Walnut Cove, N. C., recently re
ceived word from the Governor
of the Farm Credit Administra
( tion, Wm. I. Myers, telling him
of the ready reception which
farmers and their creditors are
giving to the bonds of the Feder
al Farm Mortgage Corporation
which are now being tendered by
the Federal Land Bank of Colum
bia, S. C., in place of cash in set
tlement of farmers' debts.
"Thesß bonds have been s?l'.
ing in the large markets at a lit
tle above par. indicating a ready
market for them. Just a week
after the banks began using
bonds instead of cash, the tirst
bonds to be sold on the New York
market were purchased at 100" i.
We anticipated these bonds which
bear 3 1-4 per cent, interest per
annum would sell at par or above
at the time we set the interest
rate, for Government bonds ma
i turing in 1941, bearing the s.ime
rate were selling above par."
Mr. Myers pointed out that
these bonds were not only exempt
from local. State and Federal
taxation with the exception of
surtaxes, inheritance and gift
taxes, but that they are as read-
I ily salable as Government secur
ities. He said they are being
quoted in the metropolitan papers
but if such quotations are not
available readily to farmers that
they will be given the quotations
if they will write to the Federal
land bank of their districtt.

i Hog's Need Pasture
' For Proper Growth
| Green grazing is essential to
the development of hogs, ye !
■ they cannot thrive on pasturage'
i alone, says Earl H. Hostetier. j
'head of the animal husbandry'
research at State College.
Southern swine growers have
an advantage over their north
ern neighbors, he said, in the
1 year-round pastures which can
be maintained in the warmer
Pigs which have had access lo
i succulent grazing before the fat
tening period will put on weight
even when fed the concentrated
fattening feed in a dry lot.
But those which were not sup
plied with green grazing before
the fattening period, in recent
experiments under Hostetler's
supervision, failed to gain weigh'
normally and finally died when
not provided with green feed
, legume hay, or cod liver oil.
Temporary grazing is especially
• valauble to sows which are suck
. iing pig litters, since it is during
. this p;r:o.l that young pigs ure :

. worms and parasites. A fresn'
. pasture that has not been grazed)
> by swine in some time will de-1
crease the danger of infestation.
Young pigs should not be al-■
■ lowed to graze in pastures along!
( with older hogs, as the mature j
. animals may infect the pigs al
• though not apparently suffering j
' from the parasites themselves.

'i HAVE REVISED
| THIRTY-ONE MURK FLUE
j C'l'RKI) COI'NTIES M If ST
COMPLETE THEIR C O N
The revision of l'lue-cured to
bacco contracts in which tha
j claims of past acreage and pro
-1 duction were too high should ba
completed for North Carolina in
the near future.
E. Y. Floyd, of State College,
who has charge of the tobacco
control program, said that the
revisions have been completed in
23 counties and that four others
will be finished in a day or two.
This leaves 31 more of the
State's 58 flue-cured tobacco
counties yet to finish their con
tracts. However, he pointed out,
the wo.'K in most of these coun
: ties is almost complete. Their
; completion.' should take only a
fev more days.
Approximately half of the
' 65.100 cor.irac.s signed have been
i"c m _*:• i by Floyd's oiiice here
arts.- their revision. The con-
I tracts r.ow accepted cover about
| one-half of the total acreage un
i der contract. Floyd estimated.
The rental payments on the
acres which are being retired
from cultivation will amount to
more than $5,000,000. Another
$2,000,000 will be paid before
long to equalize the income from
that part of the 1933 crop whic;i
was sold before prices reached
Probably more than $6,000,000
in benefit payments will also be
paid the growers who reduce
their production at the rate of
121-2 per cent, of the market
value of their 1934 crop.
The counties in which revision
has been completed are: Pitt,
Davidson, Columbus. Sampson.
Hertford, Robeson, Cumberland.
