For Crop Loans .
Applications for emergency crop
and feed loans for 1939 are now
being received at the county agri
cultural building in Franklin by S
S. Williams, field supervisor of the
emergency crop and feed loan sec
tion of the farm credif administra
The loans' will be .made, as in th
past, only to farmers whose cash
requirements are small and who
cannot obtain credit from any other
source. The money loaned will be
limited to the farmer's immediate
and actual cash needs for growing
his 1939 crops or for the purchase
of feed for livestock.
Farmers who can' obtain the funds
they need from an individual, pro
duction credit assocation, bank, or
other concern are not eligible for
crop and feed Joans, from the em
ergency crop and feed loan section
of the farm credit administration
The loans will not be made to stan
dard rehabilitation clients whose
current heeds are provided for' by
the farm security administration,
formerly known as the resettle
As in the past, farmers, who ob
tain emergency crop and feed loans
will give as security a first lien on
the crop financed, or a first -lien
on the livestock to be fed if the
money . borrowed is. to be used to
produce or purchase feed for live
Where loans ore made' to ten
ants, the landlords, or others hav
ing an interest in the crops fin
anced or the livestock to be fed,
are required to waive their claims
in favor of a lien to the governor
of the farm credit, administration
until the loan is repaid.
Checks in payment of approved
loans will be mailed from the reg
ional emergency crop and feed loan
office at Columbia, S. C.
Caution Is Advised
With Electric Fence
Caution should be exercised in
the use of the electric fence, which
is becoming so. popular with farm
ers pasturing livestock, ,says David
S. Weaver, agricultural engineer of
the State college extension service.
While electric fences have met
with general acceptance because
the cost of the fence and the cost
of operation is materially less than
the standard type of stock fencing,
all electric fencing does not have
a clear slate of safety,' Weaver
Reports by investigators have
shown several instances where stock
has been killed by wiring that was
improperly charged. In some in
stances it was homemade contrap
tions which were rigged up by
persons who did not know what
degree of shock the apparatus was
delivering and did not understand
how much shock was necessary or
safe for livestock.
"A word of caution to those who
might 4e contemplating installing
an electric fence would, be to se
cure the equipment' from those
sources which have had extensive
experience and have the equipment
nrt n caf Kacie" Wpaupr coir! "TVia t
buyer also should follow throughout
the directions by the manufacturer
for safely installing the controller.
"No person .should attempt to in
stall a homemade apparatus with
out first consulting some person
competent of giving information as
to safety precautions to be H fol
lowed. The proper grounding of
the wiring system and electrical
equipment around farm buildings
is also important, as a slight shock
from improperly grounded gy,&tems
has been known to kill cattle."
MORE TOBACCO SEED
W. L. Adams, county agent of
the State college extension service
in Wilson county, says tobacco
growers have cleaned more tobacco
seed this seasqn Jhain.iat, anx .time
in the past 10 years. This may be
an indication of how the tobacco
acreage will be , increased, he believes.
SELL MORE HOGS
Robeson farmers sold three cars
of hogs from Lumberton last week
through iheir livestock cooperative,
receiving $3,486.54 for the 22 ani
mals marketed, The other 14 farmer-operated
are reporting good sales at this
time and the farmers say the move
ment is stimulating interest in all
kinds of livestock production.
Slaughter supplies of hogs in the
current marketing year, which be
gan October 1, probably will be at
least 15 per cent larger than in
the 1937-38 marketing year, accord
ing to H. W. Taylor,, swine special
ist of the State college extension
Milk production is relatively
heavy this winter and probably will
continue so during the remainder of
the feeding period.

The brewing industry pays over a million dollars a day in taxes.
What Beer contributes to the re-building
a great volume
Over 400 million dollars in taxes every
year. Over 1,000,000 jobs. A market for
3,000,000 farm acres of produce.
The brewing industry Would like to pre
serve for itself and the people the many
economic benefits it has created in the past
five years. Brewers everywhere realizethat
this is a question bound up with the proper
distribution of their mUd and wholesome
beverage through retail outlets whose char
acter will be a credit to the community.
Obviously, the brewers can enforce no laws.
But they can-and will -cooperate with
the local law-enforcement authorities. They
will cooperate with every group-friend or
critic -to the end that retail beer outlets
give no pffense to anyone.
