An increase in fertiliser produc
tion next year was predicted at al
meeting of farmers and fertiliser 1
manufacturers who recommended I
adoption of a list of 25 grades ofl
mixed fertilisers to be registered for
?.i? in North Carolina (taring the
ensuing fiscal year. I
Only two changes were made in
the grade list in effect during the
past year. The group, meeting for a I
public hearing called by Assistant
Commissioner D. S. Coltrane, recom-1
mended that a new grade, 10-6r4, be
added , to the list, and that grade j
10-0-10 be eliminated.
The total number of 23 recom
mended gntfes is the same as last
year's total. The recommendations I
will be submitted to the Board ofl
Agriculture for approval. Pending!
the board's action, the old grade
-list will remain in effect. No change
is contemplated in the grades of to
bacco fertilisers on thMjfet.
The proposed grade list was pre-1
rented by Dr. Ralph Cummings, head
of the N. C. State College Agronomy
Department and assistant director of
the State Experiment Station. Hbl
submitted a list of 26 grades, includ
ing g-8-10, which was not accepted.
About 100 persons attended the I
hearing. Coltrane announced at the!
outset that North Carolina farmers
purchased a record amodnt of ferti
liser hi the fiscal year closing st|
midnight June 30.
Two plant food experts of the U.
S. Department of Agriculture ad
dressed the meeting. The estimate ofl
higher fertiliser production next ]
, year was made by W. P. Watkinsof
| ? the Fertilizer Division of the Pro- j
duct ion and Marketing Adxninistra-j
tioil. ?r** 1
Wat kins said the outlook for next
year's supplies of vital materials
used in fertilizer manufacture indi
cated increases of 10 per cent in ni
trogen, five per cent in potash and
10 per cent in soluble phosphates.
Supplies of nitrogen Jj>r fertiliser
will increase from 757,000 tons used
last year to about 825,000 tons >1
the ensuing year, he reported.
Production el sulphuric acid is
above the war-time peak, Watkinsj
said. He that the nation needs
more fertilizer plants and plant
equipment, and be said transports-1
tion may be a bottleneck next year I
in fertilizer distribution. He .alsoI
said the industry needs a year-round
program of production and distribu-1
tion to handle efficiently the 16 or |
17 million tons of fertilizer sup "

All hope tor ehoap livestock and

vanished, according to Assistant Ag
riclture Commiaaioner D. S. Cottmne.
Feed will be "somewhat hfcrd to
get" and prices will be high, he re
North Out> lina farmers must have
more and better pastures and must
r?*dnn more bay, corn and
grains if this is to become a live
stock state, Coltione said.
Pointing out that North Carolina
now imports about three-fourths of
the feed concentrates used in this
state, he declared:
"Our farmers cannot buy so much
feed for liveatoek and poultry and
compete with their farmer friends in
the Middle West who are producing
their own feed."
Producers of beef, pork, milk, eggs
sad poultry are confronted, Coltrgne
said, "with the now all-too-familiar
task of trying to make profits with
high-priced toed. The situation may
force rather .heavy liquidation of
livestock and poultry, which may in
tun cause even higher prices for
those products later.
"Our farmers should buy feed only
as needed. A late fall would im
prove the outlook. .
"Farmers should save gll the hay
they can and sow a~big small grain
crop fills year. * 1
"Milk producers will suffer from
the squeege of high feed prices and
consumer resistance to higher milk
In -discussing the livestock feed
outlook for 1947-48, Coltrane said:
"If we were not a feed deficit state
we would be all right because our
local feed production looks very
good." From the national viewpoint,
he added, it* appeared the country
will have about 10 per oestt less toed
per animal feeding unit than it had

sits a tall, regal woman who watches
as Eleanor kneels before the throne.
The woman nods slowly, in approval.
"It's a great play," she trtrfspbre
to a companion.
The woman is Mrs. Caroline Meade,
and the Eleanor Dare on the stage is
her daughter, Julia Meade, who is
playing the feminine lead in Paul
Green's symphonic drama for the
first time. Mrs. .Meade is an actress
of long standing "herself, and-she has
com Id Manteo to be with her
daughter in her first big stage role.
"I believe that It's me accident,"
Mrs.' Meade continue*- "that my
daughter has this part. The play is
about pioneers?the first English to

"And Paul Green la a pioneer?a
pioneer in the arts. This play of his,
"The Lost Colony*?it's something
the like of which I've never seen be

beautiful, and the people want some
thing beautiful today, they are de
manding it, and this gives it to them.
"And that girt in there, my daugh

from the pioneers who settled the
plains of Oklahoma last century. My
father had a 360-acre claim, and on
it he raised his family and traded

the flat, treeless, and shrubless prai
ries of Oklahoma."
It pas in Oklahoma thai Mrs.
Meade got her start op the stage, in
church and school affaire at the age
of eight. S8?e attended school in
Texas, then' went to New York to
prepare for the theatre. She studied
with _Yvette Guilbert for three years
and then Joined Walter Hampden, tire

"Brander Matthews of Columbia,"
she recalls, "referred to the drama as
