Passing On Curves Costs Thirt\ Lives "North Carolina needs a Marshal Foch to tell motorists that *thcy shall not pas'." Ronald Hocutt, director of the Highway Safety Division, de clared this week in commenting on the fact that several people were killed in the state last month asa it' sun of improper passing on the high ways. Hocutt said close to 30 persons have been killed in North Carolina , this year as a result of passing or j attempting to pass on curves, on the crests of hills, at intersections j and at other places where common sense should have told them it was dangerous to pass "Knowing where to pass is 1m portant, but it is just as important if not more so to knou when to and how tc pass." Hocutt said "When you have overtaken another car and wish to pass it, be sure that then* is | sufficient space ahead. Give a left j turn signal tu notify the driver be- ! hind you that you are changing lanes Then sound your horn so that the driver in front will know that you intend to pass. Look to the rear to see if any car is passing you Always pass the other car on the left A good way to judge when you are safely past a car is when you can set the left headlight in your mirror Then you can return to the right hand side of the road " I Purrhrtvi Stnr \of \r<-e**ar\ In Hntducinp Slauphlrr #/og* If the production of slaughter hogs is the sole aim of the breeder Ellis Vestal, extension swine special ist of State College, says the females selected do not have to be pure breds Even in this cast, though, he i says it will usually be advisable to | select a few pure-breds Offsprings from these can be used to replace 1 j the less profitable sows in the herd j The boar should be a pure-bred reg istered animal The sow should 1 come from a line of breeding that j produces largt litters Pure-breds j for foundation sows have the advan- j lagt of a known registry Ph4**ptuUe Ihmhlr* Hay ) whin Ihirinp Three \ 4*ar* Herb Gouge of the Little Rock TT:? ik See linn?of Mitchell County says phosphate has doubled his hay and pasture yields during the past three years, reports Farm Agent F L Woodard llocuTt listed the following as places where passing is not only dangerous but is forbidden by law x On hills on curves, at intersec tions at railroad crosings. within 100 feet of a bridge, and when another car is approaching.

L 1 Case, extension animal hus bandman of N. C. State College, says there are 10 fundamental points in beef tattle production He. lists I hem as follows: I Beef cattle cannot be produced economically without utilizing pas tures to The maximum 2. Make use of the li*ss saleable roughage as much as possible, es pecially with the breeding herd dur ing the winter months. 3 Use a purebred bull, preferably a proven site. Not only should the bull be a good individual, but he should be of good ancestry. 4. Provide a balanced ration, in cluding proteins, necessary miner als. and vitamins. 5 I)o not construct or maintain costly quarters for beef cattle. Ov erhead costs must be kept low. 6 Keep animals free from para sites, both internal and external. Feeding parasites is always too ex pensive 7. Make an effort to secure a high percentage of calves. The main lauws for the 16w percentage of calf (t ops are contagious abortion, >nd lack of attention at breeding ind calving time. 8. Conserve the manure. Since the maintenance of soil fertility is a much greater problem than can be satisfactorily met by the use of com mercial fertilizers, the proper con servation of manure is an important consideration. II Have pigs to follow fattening cattle. One pig to two or three steers will add profit to the enterprise. 10 Guard against disease, espec ially Hang's disease and tuberculo us: ? ?

Pine Fence Posts Last If Treated Not every farm has 011 black lo :ust, red cedar, bald cypress or the bther durable woods desirable for fence posts. But R W. Graeber, ex tension forester of N. C State Col lege, says there are few farmers who ran't find some pine or gum trees from which long-lasting fence posts ran be made with the proper treat ment of the wood with creosote or some other preservative. '.Locust, cypress, cedar, red mul berry and catalpa are so durable they require no treatment," Graeber said, but unfortunately most of these species have been exhausted on housands of North Carolina firms. However, even the least durable Aoods such as pine and gum can be -nade to last from 15 years upward f properly treated." The extension forester recom nends creosote First, he says, have he wood peleed clean and thorough y dry. Then place the posts on end n a boiler containing creosote oil ind boil for two hours. Posts should 3e in the oil to a depth of six inchea lee per than they will stand in the (round Upon removal from the joiler .place the entire post in a :ank of cold creosote oil and allow o remain for two hours. Very satisfactory results also hava >een obtained, Graeber says, from he use of zinc chloride as a preserv itive. This is much quicker, since ireen posts are used. In fact, the uoner they are treated after cut ing. the better. Practically the only material need ?d are the preservative and an old nner tube about 26 inches long. One md of the post is elevated and a ;ube filled with zinc chloride is fit ed over the higher end. In a short ime the preservative will begin to low into the sapwood of the poet, forcing the natural sap out at the Soybeans Make A Good Cattle Feed Animal husbandmen of N. C. State College recommend soybeans as a protein supplement for dairy cattle, beef cattle and sheep H. W. Taylor, extension marketing spec ialist, is seeking an outlet for the I largest soybean crop ever produced in North Carolina. He contacted John A. Arey, extension dairy specialist; ?L. I Case, extension beef cattle and sheep specialist; and Dr John E. Foster, research animal husband man. They told him that, in general, soybeans make an excellent live | stock feed. Mr. Arey said: "At pres ent prices, ground soybeans can be profitably fed to dairy cattle in a grain mixture in which the soybeans do not represent more than 25 per cent of the mixture. A larger pro | portion might prove too laxative Ground soybeans are equivalent to cottonseed meal, pound for pound, in milk production." Mr Case and Dr. Foster said: "When not over two pounds of whole soybeans are fed per head daily, they are of approximate equal feed ing value, pound for pound, to cot tonseed meal in balancing a ration for beef cattle. For example, soy beans can be used in a ration com posed of corn; carbonaceous rough age, such as grass hay, corn stover, silage, and cottonseed hulls; and le gume hay, such as lespedeza, clover, peanut hay, soybean hay and cowpea hay "About two pounds per day of le gume hay should be fed When cat tle are followed by pigs, there is no need of grinding the soybeans for them. "Whole soybeans also constitute an excellent protein supplement for fattening lambs and sheep. They are usually equal to cottonseed meal in feeding value, pound for pound. 'J'he North Carolina Experiment Station has fed one-half pound per head daily "to tambs and sheep" with good results." , , $ Wh? fence miner suffici ually as co\ falfa soil n< grain wheat soy be j ficient ever, i cows miner part s bone i \?f ISeceaaary To Select l\etc Site For Plant Hed It is not absolutely necessary to select a new site for the tobacco plant bed each year, but it is the safest practice. Experimental evi dence shows that disease and insect infestation can be materially re duced by selecting a new plant bed site each year, or by the rotation of plant bed sites. If the old site is used it should be burned over or sterilized by steam lower end. Generally, eight to 20 hours is required to treat a post by this method.
