FARM QUESTIONS I
Question. Will I be able to pwr-|
chase calcium arsenate for boll wv
| vil control.
Answer: You should have ob
tained a supply several weeks ago
to be oetiain at enough to do a
thorough Job. All reports indicate
that only two-thirds at a normal
supply of calcium arsenate is avail
able in North Carolina and not one
pound can be wasted since the wee
vil population is increasing in
many sections of the state.
Question: How does sweet potato
meal compare with corn aa livestock
Answer: The sweet potato meal,
a new feed to North Carolina farm
ers, is fully as good as corn in nutri
tional value, and the livestock will
eat it as readily as thejr do corn.
In addition to theee qualities, the
meal will keep indefinitely in the
crib since weevils and other insects
will not bother it. Rats are the
only known pests that need be con
sidered in storing the meal. De
hydrators are to be in operation
soon at Tabor City, Greenville,
Newton and Oriental to take care
of surplus production and culls.
Question: What effect will to
bacco quotas have on government
Answer: If quotas are approved by
famers in the tobacco referendum
on Friday, July 12, farm acreage al
lotments will be continued on the
1947 crops and government loans
will be available. If quotas are not
approved, the government is not au
thorized to provide loans for the
1947 flue-cured tobacco crop. .
Good Practices, Give
Record Crop Of Pigs
A record number of spring pigs
were saved this year, reports Jack
Kelley, Extension swine specialist
of State College, and because of this
the pig crop is larger than last year.
An average of 6.5 ptgs per litter
for the entire state is a great im
provement over ten yean ago and is
encouraging to swine men. The
cause for this remarkably good re
cord involves several facton: fint,
exceptionally good weather during
farrowing time; second, wide use of
cleaner, tighter houses with sloping
floor and guard rail, third, more ri
gid culling of breeding hogs and the
saving' of sowb with good farrow
ing records in numbers of pigs rais
ed past weaning age; fourth, gener
al increase in knowledge of how to I
cope with diseases and the use ef
practices promoting herd health.
The tendency is to wait for the
corn crop by using pasture and
roughage instead of pushing the
pigs to market on full rations. This
fits well with* the support price pro
gram. Fewer but healthier pigs that
grow rapidly is a requirement now
that feeds are scarce.
In general farmers are exerting
more than usual precautions to keep
their herds healthy, with consequent
ly more pigs saved and greater pro
fit realized," says Dr. C. D. Grin
nels, State College experiment stat
ion veterinarian. For one thing,
the use of sodium floride m elimin

Many people throw away the

careful planning of meals, and con

THE 01 STUDENT
The following Information on the
educational opportunities for GIs
has just been released by S. Sgt.
Paul G. Manning of the Greenville
American GIs all over the world
are taking advantage of their leisure
time to increase their education. Ac
cording to Sgt. Manning, they are
doing this m many ways. One means
of doing this is by taking advant
age of classes that are being spon
sored by world famous colleges all
over the globe. To name a few, of
these we could list Sarboime Univer.
sity in France, University of Besan
cean in France, the University of
Luzon and many others. t
The Army itself, by means of the
United States Armed Forces In
stitute have also furthered this edu
cational program by making avail
able correspondence and extension
courses with many accredited Amer
ican Educational Institutions. These
are completely available to GIs all
I over the world.
| "And so," Sgt Manning said, "the
best men of the United States Army
retain their position as the best
equipped, best paid?and best educa
