JAMESVILLE TAR
HEEL FARMERS
IN MEET FRIDAY
Vocational Training Said
To Be Worth More Than
Any Other Education
Vocational education is of far more
value than any other type of training
offered the youth of today, it was a
greed at a meeting of the members of
the Young Tar Heel Farmers' Club,
Jamesville, their fathers, and a few
invited guests held there last Friday
night. The agricultural course, one
of the most popular in the curriculum
of the Jamesville school, is worth much
to the community, considering dollar
for dollar, it was declared by the young
men, their fsthers and and
visitors.
The young farmers and a few in
vited guests met to consider the vari
ous problems before them and to en
tertain their fathers and a few other
invited guests at a rock stew and fish
fry. The boys, aided by their moth
erland sisters, are able entertainers,
and there is no question to arise on
thtt point. 
Daniel Manning, president of the
class, ably presided over the qjieeting.
and following a short busmeis session,
the sumptuous dinner was enjoyed.
After the meal several short talks
were made by Professors Wx T. Over
by and A. L. Pollock aniTA. Corey,
W. C. Manning, Superintendent J. C.
Manning, and several others, each
pointing out the success of the agri
cultural work in the school and com
munity there. Fathers attending the
meeting readily admitted they had
learned many things from their boys
whom they had given small independ
ent crops. By close observation of
the methods and practices of their
sons, the£ had learned little things that
make for economy and efficiency.
The boys' club has "been the means
of better farming, better livestock, and
a very noticeable improvement in rur
al homes in that section of the coun
ty, k was said. There are more milk
cows in the Jamesville section than in
any other part of the county, accord
ing to population.
It is admitted in all the departments ! All members and visitors are cor- ,
that the agricultural group is doing dially invited to be present at this
more and is worth more than any oth- meeting. A special musical pro
er according to its cost. The boys gram will be given as a means of par

Up until the last few days, fishing
has been carried on at a loss by the

were in the water all of last night, the
fishermen reporting large catches.

MANY FARMERS
WILL ABANDON
CROP ENTIRELY
Disease Expected To Drop
Acreage from 30 to 40
Percent in County
A large percentage of the tobacco
plants in this county has already lieen
destroyed and all ac
cording to an extensive, survey made
by The Enterprise over the week-end.
Many' farmers were found who had
plowed up their beds and canceled
their fertilizer orders. Just how large
a decrease will In* effected in the crop
as a result of the disease could not
be determined, estimates varying from
30 to 45 per cent of a normal crop,
based on tjie damage already done.
"Spray tobacco plant beds with cop
per sulphate and lime in the proper
proportions by all means and under
all existing conditions," was a second
I important warning issued by County
i Agent l\. B. Brandon today. The pois
e>n might not be a 11)0. per cent preven
tative, the agent explained,' bijt he did
not hesitate to strongly contradict, the
(racket going around that plants were
dying for moisture and that there was
'no such thing as blue mold.
Hang wet clothes in a closet and
they will'mildew; hang dry clothespin
a closet and they qre not likely to
mildew, the agent said in'explaining
that the same condition will hold for
plants. Ihe water used along with the
poison mixture should be sufficient,
and no nfore water should be thrown
on them, the agent declared.
1 he blue mold situation is extreme
ly serious, and farmers are advised to
follow flic instructions of those peo
| pie who have studied the disease,
j Hants, where the size justifies the
.Vtiitk, should be-transplanted soon aft
ler they have been sprayed. To thin
I out the bed gives, the other'plants a
j better chance to grow. But. by all
means spray them every other day. •
Accusations have been directed
agailist this advice, some farmers de
claring that it was advanced to sell
( the poisons. It is a dangerous and
j costly accusation; ' 'I hese poisons are
cheap and arc being sold at close mar
gins. It has been proved right here
m .this v'ounty that the mixture does
not kill the plants, and any farmer
.using it does not stand as big a chance
jof losing his plants as the one who
does not use it.
Spraying on a large scale was plan
ned iiver the week-end, reports receiv
ed yesterday and today indicating that
virtually all farmers whose plants have
not already been killed arc taking
every precaution mentioned in an ef
fort to check the disease-
f —Over in Beaufort County, one re-~
| sponsible farmer says there is no such
thing as the blue mold, hut the theory
■ advanced is just about the opposite of
I that advanced by th eState Depart
,f.'t Agriculture-. This farmer says
j that plants are dying for lack of mois
| ture, but over here plant beds prepared
in low spots and near water have been
attacked by the disease,
i The State department advises farm
ers to use the liordeaux jnixture and
spray the plants. The tieaufort Coun
>ty farmer has the following to say,
according to- a story carried iu the
Washington Progress last week:
'"The tobacco plants need moisture—
that s all they need. We haven't had
a good" rainfall in a long time. The
beds have been in a pulverized condi
tion and when the plants began to
.come up, the roots were unable to
j supply them with the proper degree of
j moisture. My advice is to keep all
[chemicals off these 'plains. Hyt all *
;Conrmentre Tft" once and "Water
| liberally each afternoon about 6 o'-
| clock until is some rainfall to
supply moisture. If this is done, us
ing plenty of water, there will be no
further trouble with your plants.
"All this talk about 'blup mold' is
nothing but a lot of rubbish. Nor is
there any other disease having any
efleet on your plants. They are mere
ly dying from lack of moisture. I
have made this 'statement to more
than a score of farmers. They have
gone back home, watered their plants
and have come back to tell me that
they are all right now. If the farm
ers throughout this section will just
see to it that their plants get plenty
of water, they will have no reason to
complain about the condition or qufdi- .
ty oi 'their plants."
