I Timely Questions On
: Question: What is meant by the
term "blood tested: chicks?"
Answer: This term means that
the chicks sold as blood tested have
proven negative to the test for pull
orum disease or bicillary white di
arrhea. This disease in younj chicks
may usually be traced back to the
parent stock and the test, when
there is a negative reaction, reduces
the chance of diseased chicks to the
minimum. Chicks that carry the
blood test guarantee are well worth
the premium paid as the disease is
extremely dangerous when once start
ed in the flock.
Question: Will cotton growers who
did not sign a reduction contract be
allowed to sign one for the 1935
Answer: Yes. Arrangements are
now being made to allow all non
signers an opportunity to sign a 1935
contract. Rental and benefit pay
ments will be made to tho3e growers
who sign on their adjusted acreage
and production. The non-signers were
directly responsible for the Bankhead
Act and with a 100 per cent sign
up there will be no need for a con
tinuation of this act.
Question: Is it too late to 3eed
Austrian winter peas for soil im
provement? Answer: No. This legume may
Jbe sown as late as December first in
JOOBt sections and even later than this
date in the southeastern counties.
The plant is easy to grow, produces
plenty of vegetation and is easier to
inoculate than vetch. At least thirty
pounds of seed should be sown to the
acre. The crop also has an addi
tional advantage in that it can be
turned under earlier in the spring
than either of the other winter
Churches May Benefit
In Housing Program
With loans for the modernization
and repair of churches ruled as eli
gible for insurance under the Federal
Housing Administration moderniza
tion credit plan, several churches are
taking advantage of the opportunity
provided in the national housing act
to recondition and renovate their real
The cooperation of churches in the
better housing program thus is two
fold. On the one hand they are sup
porting the program by lending their
indorsement to the movement to re
habilitate the homes and business
properties of the country, provide
better housing for American citizens
and create much needed employment
in the building industry.
An example of the way in which
the Federal Housing Administration
aids churches in repair and modern
ization is cited by the magazine,
''Living Church," which reports tjiat
shortly after the launching of the
housing movement, a clergyman
wrote a firm dealing in stained glass
windows about having some win
dows installed in his church. The
congregation had no money available
but had obtained pledges from a num
ber of families who were willing to
give the windows as memorials, and
with these in hand they were able to
obtain funds for the windows from
the local bank, the loan being insured
by the Housing Administration.
A church is just as eligible for a
modernization loan as any other real
property, it was pointed out, and the
need of the churches of the country
for repairs, alterations and improve
ments is estimated to be aa great
proportionately as the need of names
and business properties.
The official board of each church
seeking a modernization loan must
go through the 3ame process as any
other property owner, whether an in
dividual or corporation, according to
Federal Housing Administration reg
ulations. The first step in this pro
cess is to apply to a bank or other
lending institution for the loan. The
institution applied to will give all
Purposes for which modernization
loans may be obtained are not lim
ited to structural repairs. They in
clude all items which become a per
manent part of the structure, such as
heating and cooling systems, built-in
organs, ornamental windows, pews or
Beats, plumbing, built-in refrigerators
and kitchen ranges. They do not in
clude pianos, movable organs or other
Carolinas Lead In
Louisiana, Florida, Tennessee, Ar
kansas and Virginia all exceed the
Carolinas in the acreage planted in
strawberries, but the yield of berries
grown per acre iri the Carolinas
placet these states among the leaders
in the production of this popular
small fruit. :.. .
; For success, Carolina growers must
continue to - hold and improve their
Jhlgh production, for there is little if
. any room; due to market conditions,
for any substantial acreage increase.
The Louisiana strawberry industry
has long been the envy of Carolina
growers but, according to a recent
study; made by'a r representative of

Control Mice Damage
With Poisoned Bait
Field mice are an orchard pest that
most fruit growers are unaware of
until it is too late to save their trees,
says H. R. Niswonger, extension
horticulturist at State College.
Most of the mou3e damage, he
says, occurs during the winter, months
in orchards where a heavy sod cov
ers the ground.
The mice work just beneath the
surface and are not noticed until the
trees begin to die or fail to bud in the
spring. At first the damage may be
slight, but eventually the mice eat
away the bark from the trunk a few
inches below the soil so as to com
pletely girdle the tree.
The common meadow mouse mi
grates to the orchards when their
food supply in the open fields be
comes scarce. The short-tailed pine
mouse is ' most destructive, doing
worst damage to orchards growing
near timbered areas.
Niswonger urges orchardist3 to
examine the areas around their trees,
looking for mice runways and in
juries to the trees. If evidence of
