Washington We were all sadden
ed by the death of Senator Lester
Hunt of Wyoming.
He had decided not * 1 run for re
election due to bad health. He was on
the floor of the Senate on Friday be
fore his death Saturday morning. I
had lunch with him on Thursday. Sen
ator Hunt, a Democrat, had served
with distinction in the Senate and was
twice governor of his state. His suc
cessor, Senator E. D. (Ted) Crippa, a
Republican, is the newest member of
the Senate. He was appointed last
Thursday by the Republican governor
of Wyoming. This now gives the
GOP an actual majority in the Sen
ate. There are 48 Republicans, 47
Democrats, plus Independent Senator
The narrow gap between the two
parties makes this fall’s elections very
important. Many of my friends on.
both sides of the aisle are not wasting
any time in their campaigns. Such is
the great game of politics. With the
Senate so evenly divided, there will
be great nation-wide attention given
to all races this fall, particularly in!-
the close states. !'
Moving Up i
Until last week, Senator Ervin was
the newest member of the Senate. He j,
now moves up. Seniority is gained in
this manner, and seniority is import
ant in the Congress. Senator Ervin, ,
by his previous service in the House,
was already acquainted with a num
ber of Senators.
Last week, the office employees of
the North Carolina delegation enter
tained the members at a buffet dinner.
A part of the after dinner program
was a joke telling contest between two
teams of our delegation. It was a
riot of humor. Judges voted a tie (
between the teams.
I supported the extension of the Re
ciprocal Trade Agreements Act. The
Senate divided over whether it should
be a one-year or a three-year exten
sion. I favored extending it for three
years, because proper world trade is
extremely important to our economy.
Also, I have been interested in cut
ting off economic aid to foreign coun
tries. I want them to become depend
ent upon their trade and self-help for
strength, plus our military aid to
those countries honestly trying to help
stamp out aggressive communism.
The Senate voted for the one-year
Last year, the President asked for
and got a one-year extension of the
reciprocal trade agreements in order,

pigs saved in the spring of 1953 and
14 per cent larger than the 10-year
average spring crop of 892,000 pigs.
The number of sows farrowing this
spring totaled 152,000 head—up 9 per
cent over the number farrowing in the
spring of 1953, and was 7 per cent
above the 10-year average of 142,000.
Tte number of pigs saved per litter
at 6.7 was the same as the record set
in the spring of 1953.
Fall farrowings are expected to be
up 9 per cent over 1963 based upon
breeding intentions reports.
If these intentions are realized,
there will be 106,000 sows farrowed
this fall, compared with 97,000 in the
fall of 1953 and the 10-year average
of 113,000 sows. Assuming that pigs
'saved will approximate the 10-year
average litter, with allowance for
| trend, the 1964 fall pig crop for the
State will total about 700,000 pigs.
Thus, the combined 1954 spring and
fall pig crop is expected to be about

That’s a good question, but not so
easily answered. Different crops must
be handled differently. The home

seed is not recommended because of
serious diseases which qre carried

cross readily in the field and, there

Contrary to the common idea, cu

However, different varieties of these

Therefore, if you have more than one

New Accessories Aid
For Barbecue Fans
Summertime is time*for outdoor
barbecue parties, and a number of new
accessories have been designed espe
cially for such occasions.
To aid the chef, there are cotton
asbestos gloves, barbecue mitts that
are made for protection. They are
constructed of sturdy blue denim with
the palm and inner fingers of woven
asbestos. The gloves come in one
size only, cut large to fit all sizes.
Another aid to the cook or his as
sistant is a clever barbecue apron. It
is made of heavy washable white sail
cloth which has been bold printed with
clever wording to pep up the party. .
There is a matching chef’s hat to go *
with the apron.
For the guests, there are barbecue
bibs to facilitate the enjoyment of
barbecued ribs dripping with sauce.
There is no fear of spotting clothing
with these big cotton bibs.
