Questions For Each
Farmer To Answer
Since recently announced war
goals- call for increases of prac
tically all food and feed crops for
1945 and snce practically all tilla
ble acres are already busy, the
question arises as to how these
goals niay be reached.
lEnos Blair, Extension agronomist
at State College, suggests that
each grower ask himself the fol
lowing questions. "Am I getting
ready for 1945 crops by doing all
the fall plowing I can ? If not, am
I ready to begin preparing the soil
early in the year?
"Do I realize the great impor
tance of turning under legumes to
increase crop yields?
"Do I have all the seed neces
sary to plant my crops, and is the
seed of good quality?
"Should I not plan to use more
fertilizer and lime next year, in
view of the increased demand for
food and feed crops! Do I know
the best kind of fertilizer to use or
do I plan to take whatever my
dealer happens to have? Have I
placed my order for fertilizer so
that I will be assured of early de
livery. "Do 1 realize the importance of
planting all my crops on time? Is
all my equipment in good condition
and am I ready for soil preparation,
planting, cultivating and harvest
ing? Will I be able to gather my
crops without any unnecessary de
lays? "Do I have facilities to store my
crops properly? If not, am I tak
ing steps to get them?"
The farmer who can answer
"Yes" to all these questions will
be very likely to do his part in crop
production in '45, Blair concludes.

December 22 For The Holidays.
Of the 23,613,616 pounds sold on the floors of the Six East Ten
nessee Markets, Greeneville sold 6,205,148 pounds at an average of
$47.18 per 100.
THAT AVERAGE is lc higher than the combined average of
the remaining Five Markets.
Below is a news copy from the Knoxville Journal of December 15:
"The Greeneville Tobacco Warehouses today experienced the biggest
volume in history and that probably means the biggest money turnover.
Sales Supervisor, Millard T. Morrow, says today's tabulation were
expected to reveal sales totalling 850,000 pounds with plenty of tobacco
going at 60c and 62c per pound Morrow said at least one Greeneville
Warehouse had an average of 53c for the sale day.
IT IS ONLY FAIR TO ADD THAT THIS SALE INCLUDED
MANY CROPS OF NORTH CAROLINA GROWTH.
Approximately 33,000)00 pounds of the crop was marketed up to
the holidays In view of the fact the nine markets of this TOBACCO
GROWING BELT sold 67,000,000 of last year's crop, it can be seen
that at least forty percent of this crop has been marketed.
Since there is much of the remaining crop yet to be worked the
Greeneville Sales will likely continue through February or longer.
A11 houses will remain open to receive all comers through the
