Farmers To Receive
Loans On Soybeans
North Carolina farmers who grow
soybeans this year as part of the
"Food for Freedom" program will
be eligible for federal loans on the
soybeans stored in approved bins on
farms, according to E. Y. Floyd, AAA
executive assistant, at State College.
Soybeans or any class grading
No. 3 or better with respect to fact
ors other than moisture content, and
having a moisture content not above
14 per cent and which were produc
ed in 1942 will be eligible for loans,
Floyd said. Soybeans grading weev
ily, or which are musty, sour, heat
ing ,or have any objectionable for
eign odor, will not be eligible.
Floyd said the basic loan rate for
North Carolina No. 1 and No. 2 soy
beans will be 31.55 per bushel for
medium oil content soybeans of
Class I (yellow) and Class II (green).
The rate for the same classes having
a high oil content will be $1.65 per
bushel. All yellow and green soy
beans produced in this state will be
considered as having mwlhm?oil
content unless it is determined on
the best* of representative samples
that beam produced in any county
have an oil content of 17 1-2 per cent
or more. In this case, he said, all
soybeans grown in that county will
be considered as having a high oil
content. All determinations of oil
content will he made on a 10 per
cent moisture basis.
Soybeans of Class in (brown),
Class IV (black), and Class V (mix
ed )will have a loan value of $1.55
per bushel for high oil content, and
$1.45 for low oil content. Soybeans
of any class grading No. 3 and hav
ing not more than 14 per cent moist
ure, will be discounted three cents
per bushel below the basic loan rate
for soybeans grading No. 1 and No.
The loan rate, Floyd said, includes
a storage allowance of five cents per
bushel which may be earned by the
producer. The loans will bear inter
est at three per cent, and will be
available through March 31, 1943.
All loans mature on demand, but
not later than June 30, 1943.

PROPER CARE OF MOWER
ASSURES GOOD SERVICE
J. D. Blickle. extension farm ma
chinery specialist of N. C. State Col
lege, is making these timely sugges
tions to farmers: "Take care of your
mower, and it will take care of your
hay by finishing the job without a
Interruptions in the midst of har
vesting hay, he points out, are waste
ful of time and labor. To avoid such
waste, especially at this critical per
iod for farmers and to sidestep the
chance of damage to the crop while
the mower is being fixed, advance
check-ups and repairs are recom
Before haying or other work, the
mower wheels should be jacked up
and tried out by hand. If everything
seems to be operating properly, a
small part of the crop should be cut
as a test. If the mower does not run
freely, an immediate examination
should be made. The heating of any
part is definite indication that lubri
cation or adjustment is necessary.
Blickle also offered the following
advice: See that the knife cuts clean
and even without choking and that
the grass'stltk is adjusted to leave
a clean path.
By far the greater part of mower
trouble is with the cutter-bar as
sembly^whicir should be inspected
frequently. Keep all parts secure
ly fastened as a loose guard, for ex
ample, would bind the knife and
probably cause serious breakage and
Moving parts should be lubricated
little and often, except when oper
ating on sandy soil. In such a case,
lubrication should be done with cau
tion, if at all, because of the abra
sive action of sand.
After running into hidden rocks
and stumps, always stop immediate
ly. Replace any broken knife sec
tions, straighten out the bent guards,
reset any knife clip that fails to hold
the knife lightly in the guard, and
restore the original lift to any bent
guard lip to prevent clogging of the

State College Hints
For Farm Homes
By RUTH CURRENT
State Home Demonstration Agent
Nowadays Mother doesn't forget
the brush when the painting job is
done. She cleans the paint off while
the paint is still fresh, instead of let
ting it get dry and hard. Then she
wraps the clean brush in paper, ties
a cord around to hold the paper on,
and hangs the brush up by its han
dle to keep thtr bristles straight and
ready for the next time she paints.
When you have finished painting,
get as much paint off the brush as
you can with a rag Then dip the
brush in the liquid solvent. If you
have been painting with oil paint,
the solvent will be linseed oil; if
you've been using flat finish paint,
clean with kerosene oil, or coal oil
as some people call it. If you've been
using shellac, the best cleaner is de
nautred alcohol. As for calcimine or
whitewash, just plain water will
take that off. Clean the bristles again
with a clean cloth and last of all
wash the brush in soap and water,
rinse, and dry. Hang the brush up
by the handle to keep the bristles
A good job of cleaning always
winds up with cleaning the clean
ing tools. One reason for putting
cleaning tools away clean is that you
don't store dirt. Your brooms,
brushes, mops and clothes don't de
velop sour or moldy odors and don't
attract insects With clean equip
ment you are always ready "to go"
when cleaning day comes around.
You don't have to waste a moment
getting started and you can do an
efficient job that givea you satisfac
tion. But when you open the cloaet
and find the dustpan full of dust,
the broom greasy or sticky, the mop
Dusting Paves Way
For More Peanuts
Dusting will assure North Caro
lina peanut growers more pounds per
acre of this vitally important war
time oil crop, according to H. H.
Garriss, extension plant pathologist
of N. C. State College.
Tar Heel growers Ifttve been ask
ed to produce this year more than
500,000 acres of peanuts, three-fifth
of this production to go for oil pur
poses, now needed Dad ly because
war in the Pacific has shut off large
supplies of vegetable oils former
"Every peanut grower in the old
peanut belt is urged to dust a good
ly portion of his crop this year,"
Garriss said. "The results of dem
onstrations have shown that dusting
with fungicidal dusts can be of great
help in producing more peanuts on
each acre of land."- v
lie pointed out that it is probable
the leafspot will not be so serious
in "new production areas" during
the first year. For this reason, it is
recomm< nded that dusting be main
tained on a dcmonstrational basis
in these new areas this year.
Three to four applications are
recommended The first should come
between July 1 and 10, the second
14 days after the first, the third 14
dirty and mildewed, well you know
what kind of a start that gives you.
It just spoils your enthusiasm for
cleaning, and you have to do a big
job of cleaning up before you even
start on the house.
