"While an encouraging reduc
tion in traffic fatalities was report
ed in North Carolina the first six
months of this year, compared with
the same period of last year, this
reduction did not affect the traf
fic toll among school-age schildren,
stated Konald Hocutt, director of
the highway safety division.
A six-mouths comparison . shows
that 5) traffic fatalities occurred
in the state the first half of this
year,; compared with 57 for the
same six months of last year. All
types of fatal - accidents combined
took 333 lives in the-state the first
six months of this year, against
396 for the same six months of
1939. Thus, while total fatalities
fatalities, decreased approximately
12 per cent, child fatalities de
creased less than 2 per cent.
A significant feature of the sum
mary was the . revelation that 37
of the persons under 15 wlio were
killed the first six months of this,
year were pedestrians. This was 66
per cent of -the total, whereas only
35 per cent 'of the totjil traffic
fatalities for the period were pedes
trians. Some encouragement was gather
ed from the fact that only 37
child pedestrians were killed in the
state the first half of this year,-
against 44 for the first six months
of 1939, and only four bicycilists
under the age of 15 were killed the
first half of this year, against 8 in
the same period last year. ;
Urging North Carolina parents
to impress their children with the
importance of safe practices and
the dangers of wrong practices in
their walking, playing, skating, and
cycling, Safety Director Hocutt de
"It is better that children learn
the lessons of safety through
teaching, not through experience."

Timely Farm Questions
Q. What is the most economical
and satisfactory ration for swine?
A. There is no one best ration
for it is possible to increase the
net returns by selecting carefully
each season the particular combi
nation of feeds that will make a
well balanced, efficient ration at
the minimum cost. A more or less
j standard ration that produces good
results consists of corn, tankage or
fish meal, and a mineral - mixture.
This ration can often be made
more economical by substituting a
cheaper source of protein supple
ment for part of the tankage.
Barley or wheat, when cheap
enough, can also replace corn and
10 -per cent of finely ground,
bright green leafy legume hay
added to the protein supplement
will improve the ration if there is
a vitamin "A" deficiency.
Q. What causes the milk from
my cow to separate into three
parts after it is churned the clab
ber at the bottom, the water in
the middle, and the cream oh top
with not much butter at all?.
A. Such difficulty in, handling
milk often happens in extremely
hot weather. It is usually no fault
of the cow or her feed. If you
will place the milk immediately
after milking in the coldest water
available and keep the milk and
cream by changing the water oc
casionally, it should help to remedy
this trouble. It is best not to place
it in a refrigeratoT or' ice box
until after cooling the milk in
water. It is also important to give
the milk utensils an extra good
scalding, using baking soda in the
hot water, to kill bacteria in' warm
Q. How can J "save" my hay if
it happens to rain on it while in
A. If rain falls on freshly cut
hay, there will be little damage,
provided good curing weather fol
lows. Half-cured or well-cured hay
will be discolored, but will not
mold if rain comes before it is
raked up. The greatest damage is
done to hay in the windrow, or in
loose irregular piles. Such hay
should be spread out as sewn as
the weather will permit Well
cocked bay will stand considerable
the pullet's diet:
The growing mash helps to build
a good egg factory. Corn puts
weight on the bird and lays on a
reserve of fat for the heavy lay
ing period. Oats furnish fiber, and
help build resistance against di
sease, feather-picking, and prol
lapses. Green feed furnishes suc
culence, minerals and vitamins, and
is rich in other essential food fac
A liberal supply of green feed
cuts feed bills and aids in grow
ing a more healthy pullet, While
green feed is more important dur
ing the growing state, it does have
a definite place in the . bird's diet
after laying starts.
For late summer grazing and
green feed, sowed young green
corn may be used to good advan
tage, along with Sudan grass,
wheat, oats, barley, soybeans, and
alfalfa; If ample grazing has not
already been provided, a green
feed crop should be planted now.
Because egg prices generally rise
sharply in August, many poultry
producers ruin their pullets by
rushing them with laying mash,
Parrish said. The best plan is to
let the pullets mature normally on
growing mash, corn, oats, and
green feed. Before the birds are
changed to laying mash, they should
have reached at least 20 per cent
rain; but should it be wet through,
spread it out.
Q. Will a good crop rotation
completely control Granville wilt ?
A.While crop rotations will not
control Granville wilt completely,
they are the best known methods
of combatting the disease now
known. The degree of control is
dependent upon the crops used, the
length of the rotation, and seasonal
conditions during the year the field
is returned to tobacco. In the ro
tations, corn has given the best
control, followed closely by soy-,
beans, herds grass, and cotton.
Best results will be secured if
weeds are kept out of the rotations.
Q. When may I plant alfalfa?
A. Alfalfa, which produces one
of the best' of all hays, should be
planted between August 15 and
September 15. It is particularly
adauted to the heavy red clays or
other soils in a high state of fer
tility or well-drained. Jn the Moun
tain section, it should persist at
least five to eight years. Alfalfa
should be seeded at the rate of
25 pounds to the acre.
Q. How much variety should
there be in the dairy cow's ration ?
A. A ration composed of a suc
culent feed, legume hay, and at
least three different concentrate
feeds usually contains sufficient
variety for the cow producing a
medium flow of filk. At least two
more concentrate feeds would be
needed for the heavy-producing
cow. Variety in the rajion adds
to its palatebility anO insures
against a shortage in the supply
of mineral matter and the differ
ent forma of proteins.
