PERRY'S DRUG STORE
On Friday, January 23, 1942, the
annual meeting of the 15 Tenau.t
Purchase borrowers of Macon
County was held in Franklin. The
purpose of the meeting was to
discuss last year's farm business
and to plan for the coming year.
During the morning session
County Agent, Sam Mendenhall
made an interesting talk on Food
for Freedom," stressing the 1m.
portant job that each farmer has
in this present emergency. Dr.
Stokes, pastor of the Franklin
Methodist church spoke briefly
urging that all should keep the
Christian faith in the ordeal con
A summary of last weeks busi
ness, which was made up from
each borrowers record book was
presented to the families (accu
rate records of cash receipts and
expenditures are kept so that at
the end of the year when sum
maries are made the progress of
the family can be shown.) To
gether the group discussed freely
their problems in regard to grow
ing livestock, poultry, and crops.
It was generally agreed that di
versified farming is necessary in
order that the farmer may be
secure on the land.
After the luncli hour the 1942
Farm and Home Plans were dis
cussed. Special attendtion was giv
era to Food for Home Use and
Feed for Livestock as well as
what to plan for as sources of
cash income on the farm. Each
family was urged to produce
enough farm products for home
use and some to sell.
At the close of the business
session, Assistant County Agent,
Tom Fagg, entertained the group
by showing very in.teresti.ng col
ored slides of farm scenes made
in Macon county. Pictures of the'
farm tour held last fall, home inv

Third Of N. C. Farms
Are Raising No Hogs
Southerners have a reputation
for eating more than our propor
tionate share of pork. Yet, says
Prof. Farl H. Hostetler, State Col
lege animal husbandman! the 1940
census showed that 86,604 of the
278,27b farms in North Carolina
were raising no hogs. Pork is one
of the most important of the
Pigs reproduce more rapidly, and
can furnish the family table with
a greater quantity of tasty pro
ducts in a shorter time than any
of the other farm animals. Then,
too, the initial cost of the pig
is low; it will eat and utilize a
wide variety of feeds, and will do
equally as well when fed alo.ne
or with a group of other pigs.
These are some of the reasons
why a farmer with on.ly a few
acres of land can produce his own
supply of pork, and thereby cpn
tribute to the "Food for Victory"
program by relieving other pro
ducers who are equipped for the
commercial production of beef,
lamb, milk and other livestock
products. This will also relieve
transportation and storage facili
ties for other purposes,
Hostctler says that swine can be
raised far more rapidly and eco
nomically now than formerly, due
to more vigorous, prolific breed
ing stock and more knowledge of
the value of sanitary management
and efficient feeding.
Good pasture, clean water and
sanitary quarters are all very
important in hog production. Ex
perience also has proved that it
usually pays to full-feed pigs
from the time they begin to eat
until they are marketed or slaugh
tered. Of course a balanced ration
is imperative. Cottonseed meal is
one, of the best protein supple
Horses And Mules Claim
More Attention On Farm

his place in the "agricultural sun."
about a return to the horse and
buggy days, now that war-time
shortages of tires and metals
threaten to restrict the use of
modern labor-saving tractors and
Sam L. Williams, assistant Ex
tension animal husbandman of N.
C. State College, says the horses
and mules have never lost their
importance on the farm. "The value
of work'stock o.n North Carolina
farms is twice as great as that of
all cattle and calves, and five
times as great as the value of all
hogs and sheep," he declared.
"Horses and mcles furnish a
large percentage of the basic pow
er essential in the production of
all agricultural commodities," he
continued. "This has always been
true, despite the increase in trac
tors and other machinery in use
on the farm.
"Raising horses and mules' is a
profitable business when they are
used as a source of " farm power,
and as a means of supplementing
the farm income through the sale
of surplus animals produced! Four
good animals can plow four 'disc

the spring season.; do other kinds
of farm work at a proportionate
rate;, and raise enough colts to
