Arey Explains That '
Pastures Need Feed
Too many North Carolina farmer
look upon their permanent pastures
as "poverty row," says John A.
A ' 1 : !:.- f tha lytltP
Arey, uany spcciaiisi. yi mv. .i"
college extension service. The old
feeling, that when land gets too
poor to grow profitable crops, it is
still suitable for pasture is yet too
prevalent in this state for the good
of. many cows, he added.
Poor, washed land will not make
pasture unless it is rebuilt. Mo,s,t of
such land should be planted to for
est trees. Not much is expected of
a cotton or tobacco crop which is
not fertilized, yet the plant residue
on closely grazed pasture is more
completely removed than is the
case with either cotton or tobacco.
Arey recommends that a light
application of stable manure be
applied early this month to old
pastures which have become thin.
On farms where manure is not
available, an application of about
300 pounds of 'a high test fertilizer
per acre will give good results.
On the more fertile soils, a com
plete fertilizer will not be needed
because the object there is to stim
ulate the growth of legume plants,
such as the clovers and lespedeza.
All that is needed tor tnis purpose
is an application of phosphat and
lime, .such as ground limestone and
superphosphate or basic slag. The
latter contains both elements.
One to two thousand pounds of
ground limestone and about 300
pounds of superphosphate, or 400
to 500 pounds .of basic slag, per
acre will do the work. . This ma
terial should be applied just as
soon as the .soil gets dry enough to
work. It can be broadcast and
worked in with a drag harrow, or
better still applied with a drill.
During the past five years, the
United States has regained nearly
one-half of the Latin American ex
port trade it lost between 1929 and

Northwestern university's famed Dyche stadium, at Evanston, scene of many exciting sports events, will
undergo a complete transformation in April. For the first time in history a stadium will be converted into a
fully covered choral theater, equipped with heat, ventilation, comfortable chairs and other necessary appurte
nances of a complete music hall. The theater will, be used for the North Shore music festival, May 16-20. The
structure will cost approximately, $20,000. "
this country, one of the essentials
will be that all men have " equal
rights to the fullness of life that
comes with the wholesome use of
leisure time. One of the big steps
toward this ideal of democracy i$ a

Organizing Community Play
And Recreation Activities
An illuminating study of com
munity recreation assets, with a
plan worked out coordinating rec
reation activities, has been made
by Jay B. Nash, superintendent of
recreation, City of Oakland, Calif.,
and director physical education,
Oakland public schools.
Citing a condition of leisure-time
bankruptcy in many cities and
towns with the liabilities that en
courage misuse of leisure time out
numbering the assets that encour
age, right use, there are . listed , the
. Recreaticm Liabilities
Liabilities are cramped living
quarters, cheap and often harmful
amusement centers where passive
commercial recreation may be
bought, and a growing tendency to
be spectators rather than partici
pants in life-giving activities.
Among the assets may be listed
municipal and school play grounds,
parks, swimming pools, public build
ings,' libraries, camp grounds,
vacant lots for baseball, football,
tennis, besides fhe yards and spare
rooms of private homes.
In addition to these, there is a
large list of assets offering activi
ties such as churches, lodges, coun
try clubs, golf clubs, athletic clubs,
dramatic clubs,' Boy and Girl Scouts.
These organizations serve the com-,
munity by helping to .solve the
problem of the wholesome use of
leisure time. , '
Methods of Cooperation
Can all these assets be so organ
ized that they can be drawn into
a cooperative plan ?
The only way in which this can
be worked out is "the feet under
the table" plan.
In such a round table conference
somebody might 'say something as
"Ladies and Gentlemen : This,
town and the various agencies we
represent have just one group of
people for which recreation oppor
tunities musrt be provided. Let us
consider there is but one pocket
book, the people's pocket-book.
How can we spend the money we
have for the best interests of the
It would, in other words, be just
the same as bankruptcy proceed
ings. Here's what we owe. Here's
what we have. What can we do to
make us a growing concern?
The Oakland cooperative plan
combines the forces of the board
of education, physical education de
partment, play grounds and com-?
munity center activities, home and
school facilities, U. S. forest ser
vice, boys' and girls' camps, in
dustries, private and public institu
tions. These have the same ideals,
Physical efficiency to be pro

Proper us.e of leisure time to be
promdted by habit training in the

and recreational opportunities for

Citizenship training to be pro

sportsmanship, fair, play team work,
courage, courtesy and other desir
able qualities. ...
' In a democracy the words "all
men" assume a very large force;
in, fact, the test of real democracy
is simply that no one is to be left
out. This is superbly .stated in our
Declaration of Independence,"which
sets forth that all men "are en
dowed by their Creator with certain
inalienable rights," that among
these are "life, liberty and the pur
suit of happiness." If this dream of
a democracy " is " to be realized In
