Seventy-eight 4-H Club boys
and girls decided to carry home
gardening as a project this year.
This project needs to be encour
aged. Producing home grown
vegetables for family use makes
for a healthier and happier fami
ly and saves money that can be
used for other needs. The 4-H
member will need some help from,
parents on this project. Seeds
will have to be purchased and
you can help them plan the gar
In all 4-H Club meetings this
month we gave a demonstration!
on “How To Plan The Vegetable
Garden.". Here are some suggest
ions which will help you ;n plan
ning your garden.
Getting the land ready for
1. Select area with as good soil
2. Plan to rotate garden to keep
down diseases which will build up
in the soil.
3. Keep garden as near to the
house as possible.
4. Locate garden in full sun by
staying away from trees and large
B. Seeds and Plants:
1-. Buy the best seeds (certified
2. It is best not to carry old
seeds over from last year.
3. If you save seeds, be sure
they are from disease free plants.
C. Soils and Fertilizers:
1. Build up soil with manure
rotted sawdust or leaves.
2. If possible broadcast and
plow into soil about 15 bushels of
stable manure or one-third a?
much poultry manure to each 1.-
000 square feet, plus 25 pounds of
s u per- phosphate.
D. If convenient, grow your
own plants because:
1. You will have plants when
Couples of St. Ann's Catholic
Church were recently organized
into three active Christian fam
ily movement sections. As a lo
cal unit of the International
movement the couples will
strive to achieve the purpose of
the movement which is to have
married couples work together
to promote happier family life.
Each group is made up of from
five to seven couples. They
meet every two weeks in each
other’s homes. The groups are
kept small so that everyone will
have a chance to speak. They
talk about things they have in
common that affect their family
life and others.
At the meetings the couples
consider such topics affecting
family life as neighborliness,
family recreation, finances, parti-1
cipation in the life of the church,
neighborhood and community.
In the few years since it be- 1
gan CFM has grown until it in- !
eludes nearly 10,000 couples in
this country as well as Canada,
England, Australia. Argentina,
Uraguay, Japan and the Philip
pines. Faced with the over
whelming problems that confront
young families today these cou
ples are learning the advant
ages of acting together. Not only
do they learn from but they also
encourage, inspire and help one
another. At the meetings a few
lines from the Gospels are read
and considered to give a down
to-earth understanding of what
Christ’s teachings mean in every
day living. The next portion of
the meeting is given to discus
sion of the worship of the
church and other aspects of being
a Christian. Then for 45 minutes
actual local situations affecting
the family every day are dis
cussed. They then decide wheth
er there is need for change so
that family life might be brought
into accord with Christ’s teach
ing. By making use of the “ob
serve” and “judge” method the
group finally agrees to convert
talk into action. A positive ac
tion to cope with a particular
probelm is the ultimate outcome
of each meeting.
There are no speeches, no lec
tures at the meetings. CFM be
lieves that a person is too im
portant to be used merely as a
passive listener to someone
else’s ideas -and plans. At each
meeting each member is given a
hearing, an opportunity to ex
press his views. The group then
gets the benefit of the experience
and thinking of all members.
Characteristic features of CFM
are that it gives a couple an in
terest they share together, ac
knowledges the father’s import
ance and responsibility as head
of the family, creates new andi
close friendships for both par- j
ents and children, gives its mem
bers a realization of the rda- '
you need them.
2. You will have the variety
3. You will avoid danger of
bi-inging in diseases or other pests
on roots of plants.
4. You can save money.
Garden Project of St. John's
I For the second year, the 4-H
1 Club at St. John’s School has a
! garden on their grounds super
i vised by J. B. Small, County
; Agent and the Rev. S. N. Griffith,
principal. Last year, through the
efforts of members and leaders,
the garden was fenced in. Club
members plan, plant and culti
vate this project. Two adult 4-H
Club leaders, Clayton Wiggins and
C. C. Granby, got the garden
plowed. Vegetables grown in* the
garden are used in the school’s
Plans were made in 4-H Club
meetings this month to start the
garden immediately and members
will keep the garden in produc
tion throughout the summer
months. Home Demonstration
club women will assist with can
ning of surplus vegetables.

Local Leaders At
4-H Tractor School
Carroll Byrum, Percy Nixon
and Dick Lowe attended a 4-H
Tractor Leaders’ School which
was held at N. C. State College
January 30-February 1. They
wqre accompanied by R. S. Marsh,
assistant county agent.
The tractor leaders’ school,
which is sponsored by the
American Oil Company, provided
very valuable training for the lo
cal leaders and agents who at
tended. Practical demonstrations .
and interesting classes were held :
by J. C. Ferguson and John Glo-I
ver of the Extension Agricultural I
Engineering Department. Others |
who' appeared on the program
were Dan K. Chase, Lubrications j
Engineer, American Oil Company, j
and Professor J. M. Fore of the!
Department of Agricultural En-1
gineering at State College. j
John Glover explained that the |
| air cleaner was' the most import-1
! ant accessory of an engine, and!
that it shoulch always be kept
! clean and in good -working con
l dition. Most of the dirt which
| enters the tractor engine is ad-j
mitted through the air cleaner, j
Mr. Glover further explained that
for every 21 gallons of gasoline
burned, the air required for such
combustion contains one pound of!
■ solid trash particles. For this rea- i
son, it is very important to keep
the air cleaner functioning prop- 1
erly. The air cleaner should be!
i checked once a day when the trac.!
tor is operating in dusty condi- j
tions. Mr* Glover told about a i
new tractor in North Carolina j
which was worn out after ten!
hours of. operating because exces-!
sive dirt was allowed to get in the
Mr. Ferguson explained the dif
ference between hot spark plugs
and cold ones. If a tractor burns
plugs too often it is recommended
that the owner try colder plugs.!
In case the engine oil is fouling;
plugs, hotter plugs should be sub
stituted for those in the tractor.
One of the hardest jobs that a
tractor has on a farm is that of
pulling a tractor or a potato trans
planter. When doing this type of
work the tractor engine turns so
slow that the plugs foul quite
often. According to Mr. FergUr
son the best way to prevent the
fouling of plugs is to open the
throttle for a few seconds at the
end of every row when the trac
tor is being turned around.
Many farmers are of the opin
ion that it is not necessary to
use a thermostat in a tractor cool
ing system during hot weather.
Since the tractor is designed to
operate at a temperature range
! between 160 and 180 degrees a
thermostat should be used when
ever the tractor is in operation
regardless of the outside
The local leaders learned much
about the proper care and opera
tion of tractors and the knowl
edge gained should be very val
uable to them in working with
4-H Club members who have a
tractor maintenanee project.
