Swine Specialist Says There
Little Chance of Early
Decline in Price
Farmers who have hogs for sale dur
ing the next two months may expect
to make some profit on the animals.
This applies especially to those who
have followed the system of feeding
the hogs with surplus corn supple
mented by protein feed and minerals.
'"We fully expect those ; men .who
have followed our system *>f convert
ing their surplus corn into pork and
who have animals ready for sale dur
ing the next two months to make some
money," says YV. W. Shay, swine ex
tension specialist at State College
"Feeding demonstrations now undei
way show that the animals are return
ing from 65 to 70 cents a bushel for
the corn they are consuming when
sold at the present Richmond prices
There appears to be slight chance of
an early decline in price."
Mr. Shay gives as his reason for this
the fact that There were 754,656,000 Ifsf
pounds of pork in cold storage on July
1 than on June 1, one month previous.
The amount of such storage was 43,-
461,000 pounds less than on Jul)' 1
one year ago.
Then, too, he says, the number of
hogs received at the 63 principal mar
kets during the past June was 10.8
per cent less than in June, lV3l,.and
23.6 per cent less than the June aver
age for the past five years. The stock
er and feeder shipments were 28.4 and
45.4 pr cent less than one year ago,
and an average of the last five years, i
"We are still of the opinion that the j
man wlio will get into the hog-feeding
game in North Carolina and stay with
it year in and year out will make a
more substantial profit from his corn ji
than by cash crop farming,' 1 Shay says
"The man who gets in or out accord- j
ing to the market, however, will al- j
ways be doing both too late for great
est advantage. 1 would- like to see j
much of the great corn crop of North
Carolina sent to. market as pork to the
advantage of the land as well as the
owner." i

August 20th for Best
Turnips do not rank so high in di
gestible nutrients because they are a
bout 90 per cent water, but' they are
relished by dairy cows and have a splen
did appetizing and physical effect,on
the animals.
"I believe every farmer who has a
dairy cow will find it profitable to plant
.some turnips for cow feed before Aug
ust 20," says R. H. Fufner, head of the
animal husbandry department at State
College "Turnips require fertile land
put into good condition before plant- 1
ing. Actual seeding s+iou4d be doße be
tween August 10 and 20 in the vi
cinity of Raleigh. Last year, with on
ly a fair season, we made 1,000 bush
production picked up immediately.-
| els on 2 1-2 acres. The seed wer;
bought from a local dealer at 40 cents
a pound and sowed broadcast at the
rate of about 3 pounds to the acre. 1
Fifteen pounds of crimson clover an
acre was planted with the turnips and
caused no decrease in the yield."
Mr. Ruffner says he fertilizer the
turnips well with both stable manure
and commercial fertilizer.
The roots were pulled before the first
hard freeze and stored in the unused
box stalls with a. thru
the center. A cutting box was made
4 feet long and 18 inches wide. Each
day the purnips were piled into this
bo* and cut with a shovel and each
cow received 10 pounds a day after
the evening milking. The turnips
were given as extra feed with cows
Mceiving their usual amounts of grain,
silage, and hay. However, the college
dairy is generally short on milk at the
time the turnips were first fed, and the

2,300 Gardens
Jobless Negroes in Winston-Salem

Scattered all over the city on vacant
lots and open land about in the sub
urbs, while others find work as well
as food laboring in the 30-acre com
munity garden established this spring.
"This project of helping idle Neg
roes to help themselves is a coopera
tive project established by the mayor,
/George, W. Coans, jr., and the Negro
Division of Agricultural Extension
Service at State College," says C. R.
Hudson, state agent. "The college and
city are cooperating to pay the salary
of a special Negro agent, H. C. Jones,
who is spending his entire time in this
work. When the project was first
begun this spring, the city used its
teams and implements to prepare the
land for cultivation. Local merchants
then cooperated to help supply seeds
and fertilizer and the tobacco com
panies gave great quantities of tobac
co stems and dust as a further fer
Altogether now, 2,300 gardens are
being cultivated and the Negroes are
securing fresh, vegetables from the
plots in addition to canning and dry
ing the surplus. The local Negro
home agent, Elizabeth Tuttle, assisted
by Dazelle Foster Lowe, district home
agent, is giving demonstrations in how
to conserve the vegetable supply.
Hudson says idle Negroes are also
employed on the 30-acre community
garden and are paid from the proceeds
of vegetable sales. Some of the sur
plus is also being canned for winter.
1 In this way, the jobless people .are
being taught to help themselves and
the charity expense of the city si be
ing reduced materially under the plan.
