Overman Advises j
Good Crop Is Setting Ac
cording to County
t“Some cotton growers may fool j
ound about dusting but the boll .
weevil means business,” says County ■
Agent C, W. Overman. Field surveys i
on Monday shows a marked differ- <
ence between dusted, partially dusted
and undusted fields. “Continue dust- i
ing,” Overman advises. i
There is a very marked difference 1
in the punctured square count in reg
ularly dusted, partially dusted and un- 1
dusted fields. On Monday the follow
ing differences were observed: Seven
fields dusted every seven days for the
last three weeks or more averaged 3
per cent punctured squares. Five <
fields being dusted but not dusted for 1
the last week or two averaged 18 per '
cent punctured squares. Five fields !
which have not been dusted averaged
42 per cent punctured squares. The 1
above fields were scattered over Cho- 1
wan County and each area showed ■
about the same. 1
Cotton is blooming well in the top,” '
says Overman. “A good crop is set- '
ting even though the plants general- 1
ly are smaller than usual. The boll!'
weevil will puncture young bolls up '
to half grown and ruin them. Con- 1
tinue dusting this week and next at
least. The. use of cotton dust contain- 1
ing sulphur and DDT in these late '
dustings will help greatly in keeping
the red spider and boll worm in '
I Freezing Peaches j
By MARTHA STILLEY

Freezing fruits brings a new taste ,
thrill into your life! One of the great- ,
est pleasures of owning a Food Freez
inz Unit comes from the enjoyment of ,
fresh, delicious fruits, out of season. ]
Virginia produces some of the best va
rieties of peaches for freezing, so let’s
plan to freeze a quantity of these
peaches for future use. ,
The yellow fleshed freestone are:

iw season—July 15-August 1.
— Excellent—Ripening sea-
Elberta—Fair Ripening season—d
The white fleshed freestone are: |
Hiley—Very good—Ripening season,
—August 12-25. I
Georgia Belle—Good—Ripening sea
Select tree-ripened fruit at just the
right stage for eating. Sort very
carefully: remove those that are over
ripe and bruised. (The good parts of
these may be made into frozen puree.)
reel peaches for freezing rather than
blanching as blanching has a tendency
to soften the outside texture of the
peach. Pit, slice and package.
Peaches may be packaged in sugar
syrup or in dry sugar.
For syrup pack: Make sugar syrup
ahead of time. (3 cups sugar to 1
cups hot water.) When it is cool add
hi teaspoon ascorbic acid to prevent
darkening of fruit. Th's amount makes
about 5’4 cups of syrup—you need
about 2 3 cup of syrup for each pint
of peaches. Slice peaches directly into
containers and pour cold syrup over to
cover, allowing ’•.■-inch space at *»•>
for expansion. A piece of crumpled
cellophane paper on top of peaches
will help keep them submerged under
the syrup. Seal as directed for spe
cific container used.
For Dry Sugar Pack: Place peeled
peaches in a large bowl, add dry sugar
in the proportion of one part sugar
to four parts peaches. Add ’4 tea
spoon ascorbic acid which has been
dissolved in 2 teaspoons cold water.
(This is enough for 3 pints of fruit.)
Turn peaches over and over in bowl i
with a wooden spoon until sugar is j

dissolved. Package and seal at once.
The containers for packaging peach
es must be moisture-vaporproof, firm
and rigidly constructed. Cartons with
cellophane or plastic liners or heavily
waxed cups with snap in lids or freez
er jars are good.
Label packages with name of fruit,
variety, and date frozen.
One bushel or about 48 pounds will
yield approximately 24 quart cartons
Peaches should be allowed to thaw
in the carton, and are best used when
still a little icy. The quart cartons
will take about one hour to thaw at
room temperature or five or six hours
on the refrigerator shelf.
They make excellent desserts when
served alone, or may be used in short
cakes, upside-down cake, pie, pud
dings, fruit whip, cobbler or ice cream.
Tobacco Supports Set
At 47.9 Cents For 1954
Tn North Carolina flue-cured tobac
co from the 1954 crop will be support
ed at an average loan rate of 47.9
cents per pound, says If. D. Godfrey,
state ASC administrative officer.
This average loan rate of 47.9 cents
is the minimum level previously an
nounced by the U. S. Department of j
Agriculture. The average loan rate'
remains at this figure since it is high
er than 90 per cent of parity as of
July 1, 1954. Under the “forward
[pricing” provisions of existing legis
lation, Godfrey explains, a minimum
loan rate is announced in advance of
the marketing season, and then if the
formula as applied on July 1 would
call for a higher rate, the higher rate
Loans covering the 1954 crop will
be made available by the Commodity
Credit Corporation. The loans will be
made on the basis of official standard
grades at a specified rate for each
grade. Loan rates by grades range
from 574 per one hundred pounds for
tobacco grades down to sl3 per one
hundred pounds for certain “non
CCC loans will be made available to
eligible producers through the Flue
cured Tobacco Stabilization Corpora
tion. An eligible producer is one for
whom a within-quota marketing card
has been issued by the appropriate
ASC County Committee. During the
period, 1946-53, 1,044,613,000 pounds
of various kinds of tobacco valued at
approximately $382,238,000 have been
pledged gy growers as collateral for
CCC non-recourse loans.
Godfrey reports that ASC Commit
tees are just about 100 per cent
through checking acreages of flue-cur
ed tobacco in this state and that the
'producers eligible for price support
are now being determined by ASC
I County Officers.
