Labor Profit Of $2
A Day By 4-H Boy
Everyone likes a winner but esp
ecially the fellow who has failed in
his first endeavor and then comes
back to make a rousing success
That's the story of Roy Staton 'of
the Marshville 4-H club in Union
Last year Roy began his poultry
work with 500 chicks but he allowed
his brooder to get too hot and lost
a number of chicks. Later the
chocks in this weakened condition
were attacked by coccidiosis and
further losses occurred. As a ri-.ult,
he faised only about 350 out of his
500 chicks. ,
This year Roy joined the poultry
club and began work under the Ji
lectlon of N. B. Nicholson, assis'ant
county agent of the State College
Extension Service. He profited by
his experiences of last year and fol
lowed instructions closely, raising
493 chicks out of a brood of 500.
Roy also kept a careful record of
his work at Nicholson's suggestion.
He listed his expenses as $45 for
chicks, $12 for litter, $114.87 for
feed and wood, and a miscellaneous
expense of $1.75.
"In the eleventh- week I sold the
pullets and 15 cockerels for breedr
mg purposes for $207.50," Roy said.
"During the twelfth week I sold the
remainder of the cockerels for $137.
95. My labor profit was $171.43 for
12 weeks of work, or $2.04 a day
for work after school.."

There is much discussion going the
rounds of the press on the question
of military training for the youth
of the land. The trouble about that
is our youth may become as the

felt in his pockets to find a youth

suddenly drew a small automatic
pistol and killed that kindhearted
soldier whose highest desire wag to
You can thank, handle and use

The German nation is insane on the
subject of enforcing its will, and
mistake this for an accomplishment.
Only beneficial knowledge and
skill in those things which enable
human beings to do more for OTHERS
can be evaluated as accomplishments.
To learn to do those things which
bri-" iles to the faces of the
sad, the sorrowing and depressed,
that appease the disturbed, that sat
isfy the hungry, that displaces war
and brings peace, are in reality ac
complishments. It is said that the water in the
North Sea is so cold anyone falling
into it cannot live over forty minutes.
Is it possible adjoining Germany
causes that water to be so cold? No,
of course not, but being near that
cold icy water always mpke the
Gerrrans so cold-hearted. Our en
vironment does effect our make-up.
I see great Improvement in our
country. It is capable of producing
much more now than it did when I
was a boy. Farmers are Informed
in methods, and workmen of any
and all trades are more skilled. This
as a general rule is true, but there
was once more skilled workmen in
some lines. In this country there
are rot any coopers now to sneak
of. Once Moore county men lived
by that trade. Machinery has taken
the place of skilled.

Farmers Report On
Free Spring Grazing
Dairymen, beef cattle men, and
hog glowers report that tenporary
grazing crops seeded in early fall,
by September 1, with plenty of seed
per acre and good applications of
fertilizer furnish them with the
cheapest feed they produce on the
Wi,son county for exampie.
come two reports that bring out
these points. One is from Jesse D.
Proctor of Walstonburg, who has
been grazing 30 hogs, 3 head of
workstock, and 1 cow on 6 acres.
He obtained 81 days of fall grazing
or more than enough to pay all
exipenses of the grazing crop of 4
bushels of small grains and 20 lbs.
of rye grass per acre. His spring
grazing is "free grazing.
about his grazing crops and what he
thought of tlu.m, the reply was: "I
wouldn't have the cows, if I didn't
have the grazing crops. To get good
grazing, the crop should be planted
eaily and topdressed."
Widely distributed reports from
Wilkes, Gaston, Alamance, Burke,
Ashe, Wake, Sampson, Rockingham,
and Mecklenburg counties show that
farmers are using all kinds of seed
ing mixtures and that the amount of
seed per acre is relatively heavy.
All persons renting or offering for
rent, any living quarter whatsoever
must register each dwelling unit with
rent control office in their rent area.
Persons who feel that they are be
ing overcharged for rents may sub
mit complaints to OPA. Complaint
forms are available at the local War
Price and Rationing board if your area
does not hve a rent control office.
Rationing rules now require that
each car owner write his license num
ber and stte on each coupon in his
possession as soon as it is issued to
him by his local rationing board.

E.qf?s Saves Money
In warm weather rapid changes
take :la-e inside the egg unless it is
stored in a cool, moist place. The
quality of an egg cannot be improved
after it is laid but the original fresh
ness a;id quality can be preserved
until it is marked.
T. T. Brown, Extension poultry
specialist at State College, suggests
that eggs be cooled quickly after they
are gathered, kept under proper stor
age conditions, and then be market
ed once or twice a week.
Since fertile eggs deteriorate much
more rapidly than do infertile eggs,
he also suggests that all cockerels
be sold or separated from the lay
ing flock as soon as hatching eggs
are no longer needed.
A baseirent, cellar, insulated room.
or a tobacco ordering pit is a good i
place to store eggs in summer. The j
room snould be kept reasonably moist i
and well ventilited. Hydrated lime
n-ay be rprinkled ever the floo- to
rherk i old development and prevent ;
musty odors. Opting the windows
nt night ard closi.vt them during ;iie i
day helps to maintain a lower tem
perature. In Eastern Carolina Brown suggests
that a corner of the feed room be
partitioned off and the walls and
the roof insulated. Outside windows
should be provided so that they may
be opened during the night to pro'
vide for ventilation.
"Poor storage and handling of eggs
during hot weather causes large
losses to the farmer and to the con
suming public," Brown says. "Un
der present meat shortage conditions
when every possible egg is needed
for food, proper storage not only
saves money but also valuable food."
