Counties Are Urged
To Make Oil Tests
Of Their Soybeans
. Several North Carolina counties
probably will be able to qualify for
a 10 cents per bushel premium on
soybeans of one or more varieties on
the basis of oil content tests, accord
ing to G. T. Scott, chairman of the
State AAA Committee, with head
quarters at N. C. State College.
Under the soybean-purchase pro
gram now being conducted by Com
modity Credit Corporation, a prem
ium of 10 cents per bushel is paid on
all soybeans of any class having 17
1-2 per cent oil or more. AH soy
beans produced in North Carolina
are considered as having low oil con
tent unless chemical analyses prove
The program provides, Scott de
clared, that tests may be made ei
ther on a county-wide basis or by in
dividual -producers. If the county
wide tests show high oil content, all
soybeans of the class tested will be
eligible for purchase at 10 cents per
bushel above support prices for the
grade. County-wide tests must be
made of three samples taken from a
composite sample of beans from at
least 20 farms, unless there are few
er than 20 farms producing soybeans
of that particular variety. Samples
must be taken by the County AAA
Committee, and a supporting state
ment certifying that the samples are
representative must be submitted to
the Corporation before approval for
the increased price.
Individual growers having oil tests
made of their soybeans must take
samples under supervision of the
County AAA committee and must
pay for the tests. In order to obtain
the premium price, producers must
present a certification of the tests
at the time of sale.
Green and yellow soybeans grad
ing No. 2 or better are being pur
chased at $1.50 per bushel, and
brown, black and mixed soybeans
grading No. 2 or better are being sup
ported at $1.40 per bushel, delivered
to designated buying points or oil

It has been said that turkey, duck

Cakes made with honey sometimes

Turkey Raisers In
State Are Ur^ed To
Keep Breeding Birds
Thanksgiving turkeys have all
been marketed, and In many cases
eaten. C. F. Parrish, extension poul
tryman, says that the demand w
good, the supply was adequate, and
the quality excellent. In most cases,
he said, prices were satisfactory to
"It is to be hoped, however," Par
rish said, "that turkey raisers looked
ahead to next year when they select
ed birds for the first holiday mar
ket. They should have kept back a
sufficient number of quality turkeys
"It is not too late to do this," the
poultryman added. "Practically ev
ery turkey raiser has some younger
birds to be fattened for the Christ
mas market, and from these the
breeding birds for 1943 may be se
lected. There will be a strong de
mand for turkey poults next year,
because of the need for poultry meat
to offset rationing of pork, beef, veal,
lamb and mutton."
Parrish says that characteristics
to look for in choosing breeding birds
include: Turkeys that made rapid
growth, finished quickly, and show
other desirable traits.
"Choose only strong, healthy and
vigorous birds," he recommended.
"They should have a broad, full
breast bone longer than their shanks.
The breeding birds should have
wide, long backs, short legs and
short necks. The breast, however, is
the most important and it should at
least_equal, and preferably, exceed
the shank in length."
Parrish said that some reports
have been received about turkeys
being marketed lor the Thanksgiv
ing trade which were not properly
finished. He urged that growers
withhold from the market all tur
keys which are not well finished,
fat, and still carrying excessive pin
