THE OLD SOW NEEDS ?
Raleigh, X.C., Feb.8. ? When brood
sows are given sufficient feed of the
right kind during the time they are
caring for their pigp, they can, be
made to gain instead of losing in
weight as is often the case. This is
the opinion of Earl Hostctler, in
charge of swine investigations ft>r
the North Carolina Experiment Stat
ion, and he urges farmers in North
Carolina to give more attention to
feeding their sows this spring. Mr.
Hostetler has conducted some in
teresting experiments with frerencc
to the feeding of hogs and some of
the results secured show that when
the sows increase in weight during
the .time they are suckling their
p'?rs. heavier and healthier pigs will
>*? rise H.o rer.ult as contrasted to the
lighter pigs secured when theif
mothers lose weight during this
Mr. Hostetler States that good
swine growers not realize that the
cheapest gains to put on a pig niV
made before he is weaned and in
order for him to make good gains
during this period his mother must
be fed a liberal amount of the pro
per kinds of feeds. He suggests that
in about two weeks following
the time of farrowing, her feed
shonld be greatly increased until she
has had all that she will clean up
readily twice a day. When this is
done he find ? that the pigs will soon
begin eating with their mother and at
about four weeks of age will clean
up a surprising amount of shell
corn placed in the crccp built in a
corner of thc lot.
Mr. Hostctler states also that not
only are the pigs benefitted by- this
good feedin; of thc sows, but the
mother is ill good condition when
the present ,1*1 ter is weaned and will
not have to pond a long time in re
cuperation. This makes it ^easier to
have the tw? litters of pigs a year
farrowed at . ho proper time.

TAKE CA , Cf TMiJ LAMJJS
Raleigh, N. Feb. 8. ? If the
sheep man > i!; take good care oi
his iambs dniog (lie first week oi
their lives, generally they will come
through in line shape, says Geoige
Evans, She:1]) specialist for the
Agricultural Extension Service. Mr.
Evans states that the lambs must be
looked after immediately after
birth and precautions should be
taken to see that the ewes have plen
ty of milk for them. There are cases,
and this is true especially of the young
ewes, when the milk flow does noi,
begin until three days after the
young lambs arc born. In that case,
cows' milk must be provided. Very
little trouble is experienced when
the ewe has plenty of milk and the
younir lamb gets some of "this milk
Sometimes it happens, states Mr.
Evans, that the ewe's milk is too rich
and the lamb is upset by its use.
Frequently this is followed by a col
lection of the droppings on the body
of thc Iamb. If this is not cleaned
throughly serious results may fol
low. Then too he finds that the
eyes of the ycung lambs may some
times become inflamed and a grey
tinge come over it. Jn this case he
advises that a small pinch 'of pow
dered boric acid bp put in each eye
twice daily until they are well.
Mr. Evans advise- all sheep grow
ers to give. careful attention to their
Iambs during the first week as this
is the most serious time cf their life.
Farm flocks of sheep are pa; !ng good
returns in North Carolina at pres
ent, and serious economic loss will
be sustained by not caring for tl.c
young lambs at birth.

MORE OF RURAL SOCIOLOGY
An expansion in the teaching of
rural sociology in American colleges
is needed because of the influence
rural ideals have upon urban and
national life, declared Paul L. Vogt
of Philadelphia, speaking here today
at the annual meeting of the Ameri
can Sociological Society.
"Rural life today presents a field
almost untouched so far as the pos
sibil itics of discovery of new truth
are concerned," he stated. J "The
teacher who can settle a proOTcm in
his own mind can hope to discover
truths in this field that rill make u
permanent contribution to human
"In the study of sociology a stud
on! will obtain greater ability to see
the factors in community organiz
atiui, to note the tendencies of the
forces operating for the strength or
weakness of community life. It is
.id :;ccepted educational principal
tha'1 true growth in knowledge pro
ceeds from i the known to the un
known. This! being true we have a
very ini]K)itant reason for the study
of rural sociology. '
"The students in many of our col
leges aiijl universities come mainly
from rural communities. By utiliz
ing and analyzing their own exper
iences they present an opportunity
fort he teacher in rural sociology,
who can bring to them a realization
of the complexities of the life which
he has been leading." ? Associated
