Lord's Acre Plan Creating
Interest In Many Sections
ASHEYILI.E, Nov. 22. - The
Lord's Acre plan, already adopted
by several hundred Western Xorth'
Carolina churches as a means of
increasing their effecth eness, now
is creating widespread interest iji
other parts of the country.
Evidence of this broader interest
in the movement, which originated
in '1929 under the .sponsorship of
the Farmers Federation, is found
in numerous requests for .informa
tion received by the Kev. JJupont
Claike, head of the federation's
religious department. Of even
greater significance are the increas-
ing number of invitations received
by Mr. Clarke to address religious
groups of various detnoninations.
Unlv recently returned from a
trip into the Mississippi Valley, the
director of the federation's relig
ious activities, is scheduled to leave

Timely Farm Questions
Is it safe to feed silage to
A. Good, well-cured silage may
be fed the calf at from three to
four months of age. Only about
two pounds should be fed at first
and this may be gradually increas
ed, as the calf grows older. A
six months old calf may be fed
from five to 15 pounds daily dur
ing the winter months. Care should
be taken not to give the animal
too much silage as this feed is
laxative and too much will cause
scours. At tne nrst sign oi indi
gestion, the silage and legume hay
should be replaced With grass hay
and the animal given a dose of
from one to ' three tablespoons of
castor oil mixed with a pint of
' Q. How long does it take to
properly . cure meat?
A. Three days for each pound
in the individual piece of meat is
usually allowed for curing. T his
applies whether ( the brine cure or
dry cure method is used. However,
with the brine cure the meat
should be re-packed on the seventh
and 2lst days whereas with the dry
cure the meat is re-packed only
on the seventh day, but must have
additional curing ingredients rub
bed in thoroughly at that time.
Full directions for. iboth "cures"
are given in Extension Folder 34
and copies' may be had free upon
application to the Agricultural F.d
itor at State college.
Q. When should land be pre
pared for planting the. early
garden ? v
A. All land with a clay sub
soil should be plowed in the fall
or early winter to a depth to
from 10 to 12 inches provided too
much of the subsoil is not turned
up to tne surtace. ine piowea
land should be left in the rough
as turned up by the plow. The
freezing arid thawing will pulver
ize and mellow Uie soil. It will
also aid in the destruction of in
sect pests and plant diseases by
exposing them to freezing weath-
