THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER
THURSDAY, APRTy ,
Size And Finish
Controls Turkey Sales
An extra big turkey, undeveloped
and poorly fattened, stands a poor
chance in the general markets against
a medium bird that is fat and well
Bryan Nesbit, turkey expert for
the poultry department at State Col
lege, believes that some turkey fan
ciers have gone too far in trying to
grow out the largest birds possible.
Since the beginning of turkey rais
ing, he says, the birds have been bred
for their size and the regular stand
ard weights have been raised from
year to year, uniy recenuy,
standard weight for all birds, excpet
the Bronze, were raised three pounds
The average turkey grower of
North Carolina finds it almost im
possible to grow out a well finished
bird of large size between April,
the time of hatching, and Thanks
giving, the time of gelling, ineie
fore instead of getting a good prem
ium for his large, husky toma as he

found that the consuming public is
moving into small apartments and
that families are smaller so that the
largest birds are not wanted as they
were in years past. The beef breed
er has gone through a similar ex
perience. Mr. Nesbit savs people have learned
in buying their turkeys for Thanks
giving dinner that the hens are
fatter and better developed than are
. the oms- The flesh of the torn is
also coarser-grained than that of the
"While there will always be cer
tain markets which will pay a prem
ium on the extra large birds that are
fat and in good finish, it will be im
practical and unwise for the com
mercial turkey grower of this btate
to attempt the production of large
lumbers of such birds" says Mr,
Washington's Farm Success
Based On Stock Growing
To his other virtues, add that of
being a livestock larmer as one of
the reasons why leorge Washing
ton was generally credited as being
the leading farmer oi his day
"When Washington came into
possession of the beloved Mount Ver
non, the fertility of the soil had Keen
impoverished by a eeatnry of almost
continuous cropping to tobacco and
corn," says L.I. Case, animal hus
bandman at State College. "He was
quick to realize this condition and
immediately instituted less harmful
systems combined with livestock pro
duction. His carefully kept records
fhow that he increased the capacity of
his acres by the balanced type of
farming followed. The records fhow
that he had at the time on the Mount
Vernon farm, 34 horses, 15 jacks
and jennets, Ii7 mules, 029 cattle and
C40 sheep which were disposed of in
Mr. Case says Washington not
only grew livestock of all knds, but
he received a thrill frjm the bitedivg
of pure strains. He increased the
wool output of his sheep by using
good rams. He also enjoyed having
livestock products on his table.
Finally, he was convinced that im
proved agricultural practices were
vital to the future of the young
Nation which he had helped to
found. "I know of no pursuit in which
more real and important s-trviees can
be rendered to any country than by
improving its agriculture, it.-' breed
of useful animals, and other branches
of the husbandman's cares," he said
in 1791. Again in 1796, he compared
the kind of farming done in the
United States with that of some other
countries and urged the farmers of
America to "fall on a better mode of
treating them (the soil)."
According to Mr. Case, this is ad
vice which any farmer in North Car
olina could well apply in 1932.

Special to The Mountaineer
Dr. A. T. Allen, State Superintend
ent of Public Instruction, no onby
gave his endorsement to the Milk-for
Health campaign recently conducted
by the State Board of Health, but he
urged "all the workers in the field of
education to discharge their ooliga
tion by spreading abroad the infor
mation that milk is pre-eminently a
health food. He suggested that some
definite instruction on the food val
ue of milk be given each day of the
campaign in every school room and
by every teacher employed in the
State- He suggested further thai,
each school collaporate in the effort to
collect information in the territory
in which it serves, showing the amount
of milk produced and used.
Dr. Allen's interest in milk as a
health fool is well founded. Accord
ing to the Live-at-Home bulletin is
sued from his oflice there is a direct
relation between mental alertness and
a well-fed body; between undernour
ishment and backwardness in school.
The bulletin says: "We find that fully
one-third of the school children of
America are underweight and back
ward in school. Of these cases, 97
per cent could be cured if each boy
and girl would drink a quart of milk
The bulletin gives this interesting
study; "The physical condition and
mental state of all the children in the
eighth grade in one of America s
largest cities were recently studied,
and it was found that those children
who had been accustomed to drink
ing milk averaged two years younger
than the group in the same grade who
were being deprived of milk during
their growing years. Such a condi
tion exists in the country even more
than in the cities." It says further:
"If science should discover a new
substance which contains all the ele
ments for physical growth and health,
and would cause weak children to
gain or regain mental stamina if
this substance were made as availa
ble and inexpensive as milk, the
newspapers of the world would herald
it and urge its use, ami societies
would be formed to see that no fam
ily went without it. Milk will do all
these things but still many people
are deprived of this great food.
"Milk is the only food known that
contains all the elements that grow
ing children need, namely, protein,
energy, and vitamins. Thus, there
can be no substitute for milk."
To encourage interest on the part
of school children in knowing more
about the food value of milk, Dr
Allen is offering a silver cup to the
graded school boy or girl who makes
the best rhyme on the subj'ect of
milk. The closing date for this con
test in April 25th.

The recent freeze almost wiped out

of Carteret County. About one-third
