Tho Others Quit It's Good To Stay Right On In It Head Of Animal Husbandry Believes It A Mistake To Dispose Of Brood Sows Owing To Present Pork Prices EXPERIENCED GROWERS SHOULD KEEP SOWS i Urges Regard For Next Spring's Pig Demand And Importance Of Keeping Sows If There Is A Feed Supply With many farmers in this county rather disturbed over the hog raising situation, it is more than timely to consider the views of E. V. Vestal, Animal Husbandry Extension Specialist for the Cooperative Extension Work. This last week Mr. Vestal sent the following letter to all North Carolina County Agents. He says: "Many farmers, because of the seasonal drop in hog prices and the present feed situation, are 'selling out' their brood sows without regard to next spring's pig demand that rationing will require, or without regard to the old saying that 'when everybody is going out of business, it is a good time to say in it." 'Experienced hog producers should consider keeping as many sows as their farm and feed supply will support. By properly utilizing grazing crops (3 bushes of spring oats, 3 pounds of rape and 20-25 poundsof lespedeza per acre( pig and pork costs can be out by 10 to 25 per cent. 'The War Food Administration announced on November 18, the following program, effective December 1, 1943: 1. Quotas are suspended for the next 90 days, permitting farmers to sell home-butchered pork and lard. 2. For a limited period, OPA is reducing the number of points required to purchase pork. 3. The support price for 200-270 pound market hogs will be $1.00 under ceiling prices or $13.55 in North Carolina. Farmers should not sell 20-270-pounds hogs below this figure. The price situation on feeds and livestock may change considerably by next spring and summer and we should encourage our exneri enceci swine producers to: 1. Overlook this usual seasonal drop in prices. 2. Think of next spring's pig demand. 3. Keep the number of sows their farm feed supply will support. 4. Plan now to fully utilize grazing crops next spring and summer. 5. Since a large number of folks are going out of business, it should be a good time to stay in on a sound basis. "Don't you think," concluded Mr. Vestal in his letter, "you should bring these things to the attention of your hog farmers?" Inquest Delayed In Leland Case Negro Held Without Bond Awaiting Coroner's Inquest Into Death Of Leland Man In Automobile Collision Coroner W. E. Bell stated last night that no date has yet been set for an inquest into the death of Elvin Justice, Leland man, who was killed early last week in a hit and run smash-up. Justice died in a Wilmington hospital three days after the wreck and his wife was a patient there most of the week. She is still suffering from the injuries she sustained and the inquest is being delayed until she is able to testify. State Highway patrolmen arrested Paul Fields, a Wilmington negro, who is the alleged driver of the machine that crashed into the one driven by Justice. He is being held in jail here without bond. He fled from the scene, following the wreck. Another negro, a passenger in the Fields car, was also arrested, charged with being a party to the crime.

He will ' reach the 30 year retirement age ' in 1948 and could retire now on 1 account of injuries, but he elects ' to remain with the service, in- ! juries or no injuries.

Bomberger if he had been overseas, a rather foolish question in 1 view of the service ribbons on his chest, the reply was: "Yes, 15 months overseas during this war and 26 months in the first one." His 15 months during this war has been in Africa and Asia and I he is well qualified to say that both the Army and the Marines have landed as the Coast had most of the duty of putting both ashore. Since 1924 Lieutenant Bomberger has been an officer in the j Coast Guard and he is justly ( proud of that branch of the service.
