The Edenton office of the Veterans

Life Insurance in the last ten weeks

groups, the VA office explained.
Since the information program be

Carolina have reinstated $11,256,500

“GI insurance was established by
Congress as a life-long benefit for

do so should keep his insurance. They '
should be reminded to think about—
and do something about it.”

Wake’s Negro Farmers
Like Hybrid Seed Corn
Negro farmers of Wake County
have become confident that hybrid
seed corn is the answer to their corn
problems, says W. C. Davenport,
Negro County Agent for the State
College Extension Service.
In 1945, seventeen bushels of Tenn
-10 and 1032 were distributed to thirty
five farmers in seven different com
munities with the average yield in
these communities being raised from
sixteen bushels per acre to forty-one
bushels per acre.
As a result of this 1945 corn pro
gram, W. D. Pegram of the Provi
dence community grew 92.3 bushels
per acre; J. E. Perry of the Eagle
Rock Community grew 91.4 bushels
per acre; Bartell Lane of the Spring
field community grew 79.8 bushels
per acre; and C. N. McCullers of the
Friendship community grew 75.5 bu
shels per acre.
Four-H Club members participating
j in the program were Robert Penix
of the Juniper Level community, who
grew 89.6 bushels per acre; Theron
Perry of the Eagle Rock community
grew 86.1 bushels per acre; and Lon
nie Wilder of the Juniper Level com
munity grew 79.4 bushels per acre.
In other words, the farmers running
test demonstration plots grew an av
erage of 84 bushels per acre, while
the 4-H Club members running test
plots grew an average of 91 bushels
So amazed were the farmers and
others who witnessed the results that
in 1946, Wake’s Negro farmers called
for more hybrid seed corn and 65 bu-
Ishels were distributed between 83
farmers and 4-H Club members in
thirteen different communities.
The 1947 crop year is now at hand
and the farmers and 4-H Club mem
bers are saying more than ever,
“Bring us more hybrid seed corn.”
