, The Virginia-Carolina Peanut As
sociation fa urging farmers to plant
large Virginia type for greater pro
fit and to maintain this area's repu
tation for growing the world's finest
The association emphasizes the
fact that there are ho acreage re
strictions in 1946, that the demand
for large peanuts of the Virginia
type is greater than ever before, and
that the subsidy program of war pro
duction based on the government's
need for domestic oil has ended.
Prices equal to 90 per cent of par
ity are guaranteed in 1946, which is
substantially the same as last sea
eon, and it is pointed out that every
government program has provided
premiums for large peanuts. For
that reason growers are urged to
plant large type Virginia peanuts,
using good seed and proper soil treat
ment to insure a good crop.
In Hybrid Corn Noted
Pleading for patience among seed
dealers, W. H. Darst, director of the
Seed Laboratory division of the State
Department of Agriculture, declared
recently that the tremendous demand
for hybrid seed corn germination tests
this season has thrown the laboratory
about eight days behind schedule.
Asserting that "there never has
been anything like this sudden in
terest in hybrid corn," Darst pointed
out that his division is receiving ap
proximately 10 times as many sam
ples as; last year. He explained that
the increase on hybrid seed does not
come solely from the increased
amounts, but is also due to the fact
that each sample necessitates about
six tests, or one for each hybrid in
If the increased samples of hybrid
seed corn being received are an ac
curate barometer of contemplated
hybrid acreage for the State this
year, North Carolina farmers should
plant about three times as much hy
brid corn as in 1945.
The Statistics division of the Ag
riculture Department estimated that
4.9 per cent of the corn crop in this
State last year was hybrid.
Meantime, the samples are swiftly
piling up in the State Seed labora
tory, and even stenographers' desks
and tables are being utilized in the
attempt to find filing space for them.
Darst now has four seed analysts,
two germination analysts and two
recording Clerks working about 10
hours a day in an effort to place the
tests in the hands of dealers and pre
vent a delay in sales.

All possible means of expanding
pulpwood production as a basis for
boosting production of paper and

in separate meetings by various sec

Among the .any plans proposed
for .increasing domestic output of
pulpwood was a suggestion by J. L.
Piland, Veterans Administration rep
resentative, who urged that an or
ganized group of former seabees be
recruited to cut pulpwood in forests
and in farm woodlots, thus adding
additional manpower to the total now
employed in woods work.

held that even available supplies of
pulp would likely become "pinched"
