Agricultural Workers Say
Each County Must Read
Goals For Coming Year.
"This is no time for experiments
it is a time for producing th

things that you know will grow
best on every acre," the agricultural
workers council of this county was
told last Friday as 1944 production
goals were presented by state ex
"North Carolina farmers will get
more fertilizer in 1944 than they
used in 1941, which was a peak
year," M. H. Wilson, district AAA
!'eld worker said. "Farmrrs must
get their fertilizers earlier thaji
usual, in order to relieve transpor
tation facilities of the peak load,
he pointed out.
"During 1944, we will get 30 to
40 per c.nt more farm machinery,
ell of which adds up to the fact
that all needed fertilizers and ma
chinery will be available under
present plans to produce these 1944
goals which must be reached," Mr.
Miss Anna K. Rowe, district home
demonstration supervisor, strew
ed that every county must becom
self-sustaining, and first produce
for home use. We must produce
what is best suited to each locality
in 1944, she said, at we produce
more feed for livestock, and we
must begin on the program now,
she pointed out with much empha
sis. Miss Margaret Fuller, of the
Farm Security Administration, told
the group that 16 per cent of all
food taken into the home was wast

per cent of all fruit and vegetables
are wasted because of lack of har

by careful conservation.
"Another undue waste is by in
sects and rats.
I "The largest and most economi
cal supply of food is to stop plate
wast:," she pointed out.
Miss Fuller made the following
suggestions for meeting the con
tinued practice of plate waste:
Tip the soup bowl.
Gnaw the bone.
Sop the gravy.
Sque zj the grapefruit.
"By doing th:se things, and serv
ing just enough, the housewives of .
America can help produce more
food by wasting less," Miss Fuller
Haywood county was given a 20
