Harvesting small grains with com
bines has become a definite practice
in rural North Carolina. Hundreds
of baby combines have been bought
by fanners within the past few
D. S. Weaver, head of the State
College Department of Agricultural
Engineering, says three major prob
lems have been encountered by us
ers of the improved machines for
harvesting grain. They find it hard
to properly harvest grain with a
high moisture content; they have
discovered that the machines have
to be operated at the proper speed;
and they have learned that the ma
chinery must be adjusted in accord
ance with the type of grain being
First, he says, grain which has a
moisture content of more than 14
per cent cannot be safely combined.
As a general rule, the combine should
be put in the grain about ten days
after the grain would normally be
cut with a binder. Very little wheat
is lust by shattering if the grain is
Probably th* greatest losses,"
Weaver said, are caused by having
too little clearance between the con
caves and the cylinder of the com
bine. This has a tendency to grind
the straw so fine that it is impossi
ble to separate the grain from this
finely chopped straw. It is much bet
ter to have an occasional grain of
wheat left in the heads than it is to
set up such conditions that further
separation of the grain and the fine
ly chopped straw are impossible.
Finally, the State College man de
clared, the combine should be oper
ated at the speed recommended by
the manufacturer. Slight variations
from the adjusted rate may be jus
tified by differences in the condi
tion of the crop

Each Carolina Town Once Had
Although baseball is now the great
American sport and has been con
sidered for years the national game,
horse racing was the "popular"
sporting event in colonial days.
William Attmore, a Philadelphia
merchant, came to North Carolina
in the winter of 1787 to collect debts.
Among his notes, Saturday, Novem
ber 24th. there is an entry concern
ing racing. His comments state that
the jockeys usually rode bareback,
and his objections were added in
order that no one would misunder
stand his interest.
Early Carolina tales are not com
plete without mentioning Willie
Jones and his race track. The Jones
plantation in Halifax and his enter
tainments are part of the hostory of
that county. However, the most in
teresting stories this writer has heard
concerning those days are the ones
told concerning the fascinating char
acter John Paul Jones. Tradition tells
much more than history of that
strange Scotch immigrant and estab
lishes him as a popular and success
ful rider for Willie Jdnes.
Dr. John Brickell wrote one of the
first histories of North Carolina. At
that time it was one of the English
colonies In his discussion of "chief
est Diversions," he wrote, "Horse rac
ing, they are fond of, for which they
have /Race-Paths near each town,
and fn many parts of the country."
Another Brickell statement is of
special interest, "Cock-Fighting they
greatly admire, which birds they
endeavor to procure from England
and Ireland." This quotation is in
cluded because it concerns a second
sport associated with the memory
of a familiar Salisbury law student
who won fame as a frontier lawyer
in Tennessee, as an Indian fighter,
and as President of the United
States. This young man, Andrew
Jackson, left a very definite impres
sion upon all who knew him.
Jackson was the "horse-racingest"
and "cock-fightingest" man an old
Salisbury colored woman had ever
seen, according to a much quoted in
terview that took place long after
Andrew Jackson had passed on.
Among the objections to horse rac
ing stated by the Philadelphia mer
chant was the claim that it caused
large numbers of people" to neglect
their work. This was a real loss to
both family and state. Other objec
lions were quarreling, swearing,
