Southern Livestock Producers

the following article this week :

A series of cases, all bearing on
the general subject of .south-norih-
livestock rates, will come up i for
public hearing early in 1940.
. These proceedings link a pair of
the south's biggest undertakings
the development of a livestock in
dustry and the general downward
revision of freight rales on com
modities of southern origin.
The impetus for this latest move
came from a group of meat pack
ers in of all places the north
eastern states, lit was this terri
tory that others of the south's
rate reduction campaigns encount
ered the most determined opposi
tion. . Easterners Begin Move
The whole thing started last sum
mer when the Eastern Meat
Packers' Association, with plants
from New York to Maryland, filed
a proceeding which charged that
rail carriers exacted "unjust and
unreasonable" rates, on livestock
originating in southern stales. As
defendants, the association named
railroads, operating in Virginia,
North Carolina. South Carolina,
Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida,
Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and
Two months later a similar pro
ceeding was filed by five other big
meat packers with' plants from At
lanta to Chicago. In two cases,
the Louisville Livestock Exchange
charged unlawful rates to and
from that city. '
It struck a responsive note in
the south. Interveners flocked in.
They included the ' Georgia Public
Service Commission, Florida Rail
road Commission, North Carolina
Utilities Commission, South Caro
lina Public Service Commission,
Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation,
Tennessee . Railroad and Public
Service Commission, and Civic
groups in Louisville, Nashville,
Cincinnati, ..Montgomery, and Mu'r
freesboro. The Agriculture Department,
which lately was interested itself
in freight rates, urged an early
hearing because "the rates as they
now stand work a hardship on the

Johnson heard Southerners ap
plaud the meat packers' assertion
that "Southern territory is devel
oping rapidly as a producer of live
stock, particularly hogs, and it is
essential that complainants (the
packers) ha,ve the advantage of
reasonable joint through rates."
Producers May Organize
The lawyer reported a Southern
movement to organize livestock
producers for the fight. He .said
a new case probably would be filed
soon by the producer group ask

such as feeding and grazing en

to develop a breed of cattle that

So far, no livestock or civic in

State College Answers
Timely Farm Questions
Q. Should I select eggs of some
difinite weight for hatching pur
A. Best results are always ob
tained from eggs that weigh 24
ounces to the dozen,, bilt in ad
dition to the weight, hatching eggs
should be clean, Jresh, well-formed,
of good shell texture, and of a
color conforming to the require
ments of the breed. Eggs that are
round, small, .short, thin shelled,
or those that have ridges around
them should be set aside for home
consumption and not used for
hatching. At this time of the year,
eggs for hatching should be col
lected two or three times a day
to prevent chilling.
Q. Hoy much tobacco seed is
required for planting a seed bed?
A. One ounce of seed should be
used to each 300 square Jyard of
bed. A more practical measure is
to use one tablespoonful of re
cleaned seed to each 100 square
yards. Mix the seed thoroughly
with cottonseed meal, dry sand,
ashes, or fertilizer before sowing.
For an even stand, half of the
seed should 'be sown in one direc
tion and the remaining half across
the bed at right angles to the first

GOLDEN TEXT A little child shall

The children's holiday!
Yes, Christmas Is the children's
day of days, and it Is also the day
for those who have been "converted
and become as little children"
(Matt. 18:3). It is quite proper that
it should be so, for Christmas really
means nothing very significant ex
cept as we gather at Bethlehem's
manger and there we find a child,
the Christ-child. Those who come
on the morrow to do .homage to Him
in the spirit of childlike faith will
truly keep Christmas. In that spirit
the writer of these notes wishes for
you who read these lines just that
kind of a holy day of joy and glad
ness. Let us then go first of all to Beth
lehem, and there having seen the
One who "became flesh and dwelt
among us" as a little child, we shall
be ready to go on and learn from
Him what a blessed example, re
sponsibility, and opportunity there
is in the childhood which we see all
I. The Child Jesus Our Saviour
The virgin mother Mary "brought
forth her .firstborn son" and "called
his name Jesus" the one who
should "save his people from their
sins" (vv. 21, 25). In order that
He might be the Saviour, He had to
be both God and man. This could
only be true as God sent His own
only-begotten Son into the world by
giving to Him a human mother in
whom He as the eternal Son of God
was "conceived by the Holy Ghost"
(as we express it in the creed) and
became the Son of Man.
For anyone who believes that God
has all power and all wisdom to do
what He wills and as He wills, and
who further believes that Christ Was
pre-existent as the Son of God be
fore His incarnation, there is no
difficulty in believing in the virgin
birth. In fact, no other manner of
Incarnation would have been possi
ble. It necessarily follows that the
one who denies the virgin birth of
Christ thereby declares that He does
not believe in the God of the Scrip
tures and In Jesus Christ His Son
II. The Child Our Example (18:
The disciples had been having a
discussion about who was to be the
greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
This was not because they desired
their brothers' 'advancement, for
each one wanted to be the greatest
Jesus frankly told them that they
needed a real change of heart, ' a
conversion. True greatness is not
a matter of worldly position or am
bition, . but of a childlike humility.
Such an idea was absolutely revo
lutionary in the day of Jesus, and
in fact sounds unbelievable to the
worldly man today. But it is none
theless true that the great man or
woman is the one who knows and
recognizes himself to be utterly de
pendent on God In every moment,
every circumstance, every trial, and
in every opportunity of life. We need
to learn of our children.
III. The Child Our Responsibili
ty (18:5, 6).
These awful, solemn words should
be considered with great care. What
a terrible judgment awaits those
who cause little ones to stumble by
reason of their false teaching, their
failure to bring God's Word to bear
upon their lives, improper discipline
in the home, or the influence of a
bad example. There are probably
preachers, teachers in the Sunday
School, grandparents, uncles, aunts,
mothers, fathers, yes, even friends
of little children who need to reread
these verses and then cry out to God
in repentance before it is too late.
IV. The Child Our Opportunity
Jesus knew the real value of a
child and His loving heart reached
out to invite the children to come
unto Him in love, in obedience, and
in trust. When they came, He never
failed to bless them.
The glorious thing is that we
are privileged to thus bring little
children to Him. Someone may say,
"Jesus is no longer on earth, I can
not take my child to him." Jesus
is not here in the flesh, but He is
here ever present with His children.
You can bring your child to Him,
for the coming which He has in
mind in these verses is not in any
physical sense but rather spiritual.
The parents who teach their little
ones about the birth of Christ on
this Christmas day have brought
them to Him. Every word of in
struction, every encouragement to
pray, every example of devotion to
Christ which the child may follow
is the true bringing of that child to
Will you do it this Christmas in
the home, in the Sunday School, in
the church, anywhere? If you do,
