"Bob" Pago got right
down to the heart of
things in few words at
the North Carolina Beef
Breeders' and Feeders'
banquet held at The
Carolina, Saturday even
ing last: "The truth
is, whether we be bankers or farmers,
ice want to be shown! If And Tufts,
Derby, and others are all demonstrating
within the range of our vision, that the
much argued 'diversity' advice is
yrojitahlc. This actual demonstration of
success is what is to divert the section
from the one crop idea to generaliza
tion; adaptation to conditions; broader
comprehension ; development of the vast
resources which are ours; success from
the practical, not the theoretical stand
point ; the viewpoint of commercial neces
sity!" 1fAnd just back of Mr. Page,
was the material evidence of accomplish
ment; a Pinehurst-finished steer, sleek
and heavy ; a typical tar heel product,
dishevelled and emaciated, a wild and
gaunt razor back hog; a fat and con
tented Berkshire. If And what one
couldn't comprehend from the contrast
presented, Secretary Curtis of the Asso
ciation, and State A. & M. College,
told in the technical language of the ex
pert; briefly summed up success and
failure; profit and loss!
And there were other speakers, also,
who addressed a representative gather
ing numbering nearly one hundred;
banker and producer, lender and bor
rower, meeting on a mutual ground for
discussion of and suggestions for the
solution of a problem which confronts not
alone the section and the South, but the
Nation as well. If From each and every
aspect the subject was presented, with
the organized, efficient co-operative unity
of the Sand Hill section as the basis of
general adaptation of the suggestions
presented. If Frederick A. Delano of the
federal Reserve Board, was the honor
speaker; the distinguished coterie also
including Dr. Bradford R. Knapp, of
the United States Bureau of Farm
demonstration Work; Vice President
benjamin Joy, of the Shawmut National
Bank, Boston; George A. Holderness,
banker of Tarboro, N. C, (who is also
"from Missouri,") and in addition to
Congressman Page's remarks, the address
of the Association's President, Roger A.
Derby of Jackson Springs, whose vision is
always of the future; a clear and concise
statement of facts based on conditions,
not "conditions of mind."
AN ANCHOR FOR THE SHIP OF STATE
We are met here tonight, said Mr.
the establishment of a permanent, intelli
gent and contented class of people on the
land, must be built up around a system
of animal husbandry and I am going to
point out briefly what are the conditions
that prevail today in some of the rural
districts of the State and what this Asso
ciation is aiming to do, so far as it is
able, to correct them. 1f Dangerous as it
is to generalize about the South, and par
ticularly about a State which contains

Derby, to discuss the question of rural
credit as particularly applied to the pro
duction of beef cattle in this State, but
before we commence the discussion I want
to tell what has inspired this Association
to arrange this meeting and to invite you
gentlemen here. 11 The officers of this
Association feel that a really staple, pros
perous, system of agriculture which takes
into consideration soil enrichment and
so many different soils, climatic condi
tions and systems of agriculture as does
North Carolina, I am going to make the
statement that in large areas of the
State we have a thoroughly unsound sys
tem of agriculture which is not only im
poverishing the soil, but from time to
time, incurring great financial loss to all
members of our rural society which has

COMPETITION in the
annual Mid-April golf
tournament was confined
to preliminary play, C.
W. Diebel winning easily
from Dr. W. E. Code in
the final for the Presi
dent 's trophy. If Dr.
Code made a good start
winning the first and fourth and
halving the second and third holes, but
Diebel made the turn two up, and he
followed a halve on the tenth with wins
on the next three holes, Code rallying for
a win on the fourteenth only to lose the
match by four down and three to play by
halving the short fifteenth in 3. If In the
consolation, P. S. Maclaughlin held his
own up to the turn in his match with J.
D. Standish, Jr., but the Detroit amateur
pulled away rapidly on the homeward
journey and won by four and three on
the short fifteenth.
DEIBEL AND CODE DIVIDE HONORS
Deibel and Code divided honors in sec
ond and semi-final rounds, the former
winning from T. W. Case on the twenty
first green in the morning and C. B.
Hudson in the afternoon; and the latter
from J. C. Parrish, Jr., and Dr. C. H.
Gardner. If The Code-Case match was all
even at the turn with a medal of forty
each. A triplet of 4 's gave the westerner
a three up lead on the twelfth, but Case
came back for another bunch of 4 's which
won the thirteenth and fourteenth and
halved the fifteenth, and he squared the
match with a 5 on the sixteenth where
Code failed to carry the trap on his tee
shot. The Chesterfield golfer should have
won the seventeenth where his iron of
perfect direction just escaped the pin as
it rolled past and lay "dead;" Case,
who sliced from the tee, short. The
Owasco golfer's recovery placed his ball
close up, and by the strange vagaries
which make golf fascinating, Dr. Code
failed to record a winning 2 and halved
in 3. All even on the eighteenth, both
players were over cautious and took three
putts for a halve in 6. The nineteenth
was even honors in a bogey 5, and the
twentieth, likewise, in a not-so-good 6,
