Sine the closing of the mar kets much thought and effort has been given to the problerr of wet and damaged peanuts as td how best the problem shoulc be handled. Many ideas have been advanced but the best, cheapest and most practical, ac cording to experiments, is the separating of the peanuts at the picker. Once the damaged pea nuts , have been mixed with the operation, it is ; impossible to separate the good from the bad at ,a later date; therefore, it if most important that any. separa tion 'contemplated be done be- forp nirkintf " Thp fnllnuino i r - 1 procedure is recommended and experiments prove its worth. When the stack is hauled to the picker, '.remove. .'the pole, fork off and place in a separate pile the top 6-inch to 12-inch of the stack generally . referred to as the "cap." ' Observe the bottom of the stack and if mold appears fork bff a thin layer and place with the cap " which has been remov ed. Then; the stack has been cleaned up and can be picked. This procedure should be fol lowed . without interruption, picking the good portion of the crop', f until i ', the caps and ;" the skirts which have been for&ed off accumulate a pile big enough to begin interfering with the picker operation. When this condition occurs,1 allow the:pick er to , clean itself of the good peanuts and then begin picking the cap and skirt pile. The pea nut bags ' from this operation should be marked and kept sep arate so that they can be graded and handled separately from the good peanuts. 7 v . i ? - v There are two important rea sons for following this proced ure: (1) the seed supply should come from the area within the' stack which has not been sub jected r to the freeze, as peanuts from the straight run picking of the stack indicated that they are" only., about 60 value for seed, whereas the peanuts pick ed from the center pf the capped stack .indicate ' that ' they . are Continued en Page I . 111 ' . 11 ' Indians And Squaws ToPlayWilliamston Perquimans High School bas- Harvesting Crop day night of this week when the' local teams will meet the teams, from Williamston .
