Will I be able to pwr-| chase calcium arsenate for boll wv | vil control. Answer: You should have ob tained a supply several weeks ago to be oetiain at enough to do a thorough Job. All reports indicate that only two-thirds at a normal supply of calcium arsenate is avail able in North Carolina and not one pound can be wasted since the wee vil population is increasing in many sections of the state. Question: How does sweet potato meal compare with corn aa livestock feed? Answer: The sweet potato meal, a new feed to North Carolina farm ers, is fully as good as corn in nutri tional value, and the livestock will eat it as readily as thejr do corn. In addition to theee qualities, the meal will keep indefinitely in the crib since weevils and other insects will not bother it. Rats are the only known pests that need be con sidered in storing the meal. De hydrators are to be in operation soon at Tabor City, Greenville, Newton and Oriental to take care of surplus production and culls. Question: What effect will to bacco quotas have on government loans? Answer: If quotas are approved by famers in the tobacco referendum on Friday, July 12, farm acreage al lotments will be continued on the 1947 crops and government loans will be available. If quotas are not approved, the government is not au thorized to provide loans for the 1947 flue-cured tobacco crop. . Good Practices, Give Record Crop Of Pigs A record number of spring pigs were saved this year, reports Jack Kelley, Extension swine specialist of State College, and because of this the pig crop is larger than last year. An average of 6.5 ptgs per litter for the entire state is a great im provement over ten yean ago and is encouraging to swine men. The cause for this remarkably good re cord involves several facton: fint, exceptionally good weather during farrowing time; second, wide use of cleaner, tighter houses with sloping floor and guard rail, third, more ri gid culling of breeding hogs and the saving' of sowb with good farrow ing records in numbers of pigs rais ed past weaning age; fourth, gener al increase in knowledge of how to I cope with diseases and the use ef practices promoting herd health. The tendency is to wait for the corn crop by using pasture and roughage instead of pushing the pigs to market on full rations. This fits well with* the support price pro gram. Fewer but healthier pigs that grow rapidly is a requirement now that feeds are scarce. In general farmers are exerting more than usual precautions to keep their herds healthy, with consequent ly more pigs saved and greater pro fit realized," says Dr. C. D. Grin nels, State College experiment stat ion veterinarian. For one thing, the use of sodium floride m elimin ating intestional worms is increasing this season. UPSET One little school girl in an east ern North Carolina townjs quite in dignant at her government. The Advertising Division of the Department at Conservation and Development is in receipt of the following stern note: "Please send me all the books and papers of the United States or world [that you have. My school teacher sent aftel" them and yon sent her a lot of stuff from all over the world, and you sent it to her free. So I want you to send it to me, too, be cause I need it. I think I am as good as she is. So send it soon." Removing com suckers, a com mon practice, is unnecessary, the plant scientists advise. The little shoots do no harm. E. D. Hayes of Yadkinville produc ed 122 bushels of corn par acre on the J. D. Wellborn farm last year for the largest yield reported in North Caro lina. Yield attested by Farm Agent D. R. Perkins. N. C. State College. Food aperialista say tta? is mora waste than overstocking and careless marketing. You cant tail from the looks of s toad how far it xan jump and you can't tell the value of all feed bfr it# appearance. Many tons of fruit with alight blemishes are ignored by the custo mer and left to rot, contaminate other fruit, aad eventually be thrown away by the retailer. Many of these hot so perfect or well-com plexioned fruits have equal taste and nutritive vatae with their more at tractive companions. And another good rule for shop pers that saves food is a hands-off policy when it comes to pinching, ; prodding, end pomeling sound fruits and vegetables. Handling causes rot and results in waste. Many people throw away the leaves of cauHflower, endive, end chard without thinking of the tasty nutrition lost by failing to put thorn in stows and soups. Many a tasty healthful dish goes by the way aide if the cook is unwilling to try new recipes that can turn left overs or not overly popular vege tables into a delirious dish. A. little foresight in purchasing, careful planning of meals, and con servation in the kitchen, and at the table are just good - sense. It not only makes for more adequate, well balanced diets but in these days it saves the lives of millions of men, women and children who are dying of hunger ovter. the face of this earth of ours. THE 01 STUDENT The following Information on the educational opportunities for GIs has just been released by S. Sgt. Paul G. Manning of the Greenville sub-station. American GIs all over the world are taking advantage of their leisure time to increase their education. Ac cording to Sgt. Manning, they are doing this m many ways. One means of doing this is by taking advant age of classes that are being spon sored by world famous colleges all over the globe. To name a few, of these we could list Sarboime Univer. sity in France, University of Besan cean in France, the University of Luzon and many others. t The Army itself, by means of the United States Armed Forces In stitute have also furthered this edu cational program by making avail able correspondence and extension courses with many accredited Amer ican Educational Institutions. These are completely available to GIs all I over the world. | "And so," Sgt Manning said, "the best men of the United States Army retain their position as the best equipped, best paid?and best educa ted army in the world." An invitation to a wedding involves more trouble than a summons to po lice court.
