very youthful looking man who
was in the act of taking a seat as a

these seats are for the senators."
Assured that the young man was a
senator, there was no further ques

often referred to as the "baby"
'member .of the North Carolina
State Senate. Indeed, he was the
youngest member of that body,
having been .elected even before

Lincoln Kan Writes About Ellis Vestal
And His Hog Raising Experiences
The following story by Llnooln
Kan, Goldsboro News-Argus fea
ture writer, appeared in a recent
issue of the News-Argus:
Is the open trough better than
the self-feeder in commercial hog
raising? That is the question E. V.
Vestal of near Kenansville 's try
ing to decide. .
Vestal, a retired State College
swine specialist, has switched to
commercial production this .year.
At present he has two: groups of
24Npigs under test v
In one lot he has several wide
troughs filled, with corn. And in
anothed lot he is using a selffeed-
er. Supplement Is given to the hogs
each day in measured amounts'.
"So far, it looks like they self-
feeder hogs are doing better: Of
course, the, pigs are a few days
older, but Just the same the general
condition is Setter," he said, -
Winter weather ihaa hurt his
temperorary pastures, so none of
the swine are getting much green.
"As far as I can tell, the supple-
men is helping them over it. They
really do lap that up, he said.
Another experiment he has car
ried out which seems to have given
him good results is the addition of
yeast to his supplement, He has
given this mixture to the hogs
from birth until they ara sold.
"I haven't had one case of scours
since I started using it It is cheap
too. I add one pound of brewers
yeast to every hundred pounds of
supplement," he said.
His commercial production is
based on what'he calls a criss-cross.
He crossed two pure-breds and then
crosses the off-spring with another
pure-bred animal of a different
type. "This gives you the type of
market carcass you want and they
feed out a lot farter and more eco
nomically, especially for large scale
production, ' he said.
Vestal was of the opinion that
the shift will be to carcass grading
within a short time. "We'll have to
get carcass grading, and when we
do, we'll have to provide the leaner
type hog Instead of the lard type
that is now going to market," he

Mr. Reynolds will emphasise, th
fact that too many farmer feed
hogs com only when experiment '
show it is more economical to gift
a balanced feed. Hog should have
access not bnly to eon, tut flab
meal or tankage, or 40 per cent
supplement in place of meal or

feed cost considerably.
