A Meeting Full of Practical Talks
For Farmers Better-
Craven County Farmers Union held
their meeting at the court house Satur
day at 11 o'clock. There was a fair at
tendance but not one that Bhould have
been present to enjoy and profit by the
meeting. Mr. S. M. Brinson made the
opeiSnr address saying in part, that
education was for the boy and girl in
country as same as the boy and girl in
the city. Today tho farmer is more
fully recognizing that his boy must have
an education, a training to fit him for
farm work along intelligent and advanc
ing lines. His address .eloquent and
at the same practical. The speaker of
the day Mr. P. E. ShaW of Teachey's
was introduced by Mr. Brinson..
Mr. Shaw address was one that every
farmer of Craven could have heard
with profit and pleasure. It was prac
tical, Bound and pointed the way far
farmers that made a deep impression
upon his hearers. Among many things
S the speaker said. The Farmers Union
stands for education and co-operation.
Today the farmer is playing a losing
game, when he can and should win and
succeed. We shall ask the legislature
for $50,000 appropriation to start, 20
county agricultural schools, these to
add an agricultural education to the
boy and girl on the farm, to not con
flict with the present public schools.
Some personal experiences were given
that were very interesting. Mr. Shaw
gave the comparisons of what wheat
and corn were now raised and what
could be by intelligent farming. The
Kreift sums now Rent out of the State
for food supplies were shown, and how
by agricultural education work the
State could pave these millions, and the
few thousands spent for agricultural
schools would be returned by the im

who on last Saturday addressed the an
nual banquet of the American Forestry
association. The President said he did,
not like "to lecture the states" in their
business, but expressed the belief that
some states were not doing tbsir duty
in the development of their forests, ,,,
"It is the function of the states to
provide state foresters and a forestry
service," said the President. "Some
states like Massachusetts and New York
are spending lots of money in this
cause, but other states don t seem to
realize the responsibility , upon them in
developing our tree industry . "
Tht President added that it was dis
couraging to think of the great amount
of land that ought to have forests and
that at present the government had
under its forestry system only 25 per
cent of the forestry owned by private
persons, indicating the amount of work
before both the states
