THURSDAY,, JANUARY J, IfM
ittees Announced For
evelt Birthday Events
The national committee in charge
of the President's Birthday Fund
has announced that this year in
stead of one birthday ball a num
ber of events covering various
forms of amusement and entertain
ment will be held prior to the final
festivities on January 29.
The money received from these
entertainments will go to the re
cently organized national founda
tion for fighting infantile paralysis.
Macon county's quota for this fund
has been set at $125, and it is
thought that this amount can be
raised without difficulty.
A number of entertainments, in
cluding dances at ; Franklin and
Highlands, a fiddlers' convention,
movie shows, a box supper and an
old men's basketball, game, have
been planned and will be given
during the month. The first event,

high school gymnasium. Others

Farm Program Helps
To Stabilize Prices
(Editor's note: This is the fifth
in a series of articles in which two
farmers discuss the agricultural
John Brown: "Under the pro
gram, they don't want you to go
over your soil-depleting goal, but
they do want you to plant all the
acreage of soil-depleting crops
that are allowed in your goal.""
Bill Smith: "Why?"
Brown: "If we don't plant enough
cotton, tobacco, corn, wheat and
the like, there won't be enough to
supply the demand. That will make
prices go up too high.
"That will be hard on the "con
sumer, and it will mean that this
country will have to spend money
to buy agricultural commodities
from other countries.
"In other words, the United
States will be sending money
abroad to buy crops- that we farm
ers here should be growing and
Smith : "You're right. I hadn't
thought about that. We don't want
to go hungry here, ind we want
to keep our money at home."
Brown : "And if we' grow too
much, we will be wasting a lot of
hard work, and wasting our land
too. But we don't want to wear
out our soil growing a lot of stuff
nobody will buy at a decent price."
Smith: "I've had enough
that. Look what I've done to my
nA t'e ninmh ..mm n. in nlamc
And I haven't made a decent hv-
ing in years. .
Brown: "But if we stick by the
program, prpdyction will be kept
in line with demand, prices will be
at a fair level, and we will have a
chance to -take care of our land
like we ought to."
;Smith: "That's what we've been
needing for years. We'd be a lot
better off today- if this program
had been started a long time ago."

. An accurate estimate of the
number . of cords of pulpwood
stumpage which can b.e cut from
an . area may save considerably
more than the cost of the esti
mate, says R. W. Graeber, exten
sion forester at State college.
VVhile it is generally advisable
to sell pulpwood on the basis of
the number of cords actually cut,
Graeber says that in some cases
it may be necessary to make ad
I vance estimates of production.
t rrt r , . ii , .
Anf aie couege loresier quotes
' the forest service of the U. S.
j department of agriculture as saying
that an estimate or cruise should
be made by a competent estimator
on any tract of more than 80 acres
if. there is a good stand of timber
about 10 cords or more per acre.
, On a small tract, the estimating
can be done at the same time the
trees, are marked.. With a small
brush and a can of white paint,
each tree to be cut can be daubed
with a splotch of paint. The mark
will last for, a year or more. .
Graeber suggests that timber
owners needing assistance in esti
mating their timber stands can ob
tain help from their county agents,
who work in cooperation with the
extension foresters at State college.
