Completing: a five-year job, hard-rock men holed through in the San
Jacinto tunnel recently. Within a few months 1,000,000,000 gallons of the
Colorado river will rush through this 13-mile bore daily in its haste to
quench the thirst of Los Angeles and 12 other southern cities. It was one
of the biggest tunneling jobs ever attempted.
Granville 4-H Club
Boy' Is 75 Years Old
Granville county has a most act
ive 4-H Corn Club, and one of the
! "boys" is, J. T. Daniel, a 75-year-i
old farmer of Oxford, Route 1. He
is one of the leading soil conserva
tionists in .that section. ' v
About five years ago,' when the
Civilian Conservation corps estab
lished a camp in Granville county,
Mr. Daniel was the first farmer to
obtain the assistance of the . CCC
boys in having his farm terraced.
He then planned a balanced agri
cultural program, reports C. V.
Morgan, county agent of the State
college extension service.-
At that time the Daniel farm
was badly gullied and the fields
irregular in shape. It was of about
average productivity for the county.
Now there is not one gully" on the
place, the fields have regular boun
daries, and the soil has more than
tripled in productiveness.
Five ( years ago the farm would
produce about four barrels of corn

an acre; in 1938 the yield of corn
on 12 measured acres was, better
than 14 'barrels per acre.
During the past crop season Mr.
Daniel had about 70 acres in les
pedeza, 19 acres of approved per
manent pasture, and a two-acre
grass plot. His entire corn crop
had .soybeans and field peas broad
cast . in the middles.
. This fall Mr. Daniel has sown 14
acres of wheat, all of which is
following second and third year
lespedeza; six acres of crimson
clover; 20 acres of rye to be turn
ed under in the spring; and one
acre of Italian rye grass as an ex
periment. On these soil-building
crops there was applied 5,000 pounds
of 47 per cent phosphate. The soil
building units, total 107.7.
The breeding of- better pasture
and hay crops is likely to follow
somewhat the same course as ' corn
breeding first -by mass selection,
and later, perhaps, the develop
ment of hybrid strains from inbred
lines.
