Farm Education In Schools
Great Aid To North Carolina
In 80 of the 100 counties of North
Carolina agricultural courses are
taught In the high ■school.'', and that
'this particular kind of education
pays Is evidenced in statements
made by Hoy H .Thomas, supervisor
of agricultural education in the
elate, using The United States Dally
as a medium for telling the world \
what North Carolina is doing in nd
vanceinent of the farming industry
through education of boys and girls
men and women. At the outset, he
submits that a return of $4.75 from
the practical work of the person re
ceiving agricultural instruction for
every dollar Invested In salaries for
teachers, is evidence that 171 North
Carolina communities in these 80
counties, found the teaching of agri
culture to be a good Investment, Ac
cording to his figures. 0.838 persons
in the agricultural classes last year
produced farming truck to the value

of SI.407,M2 26 While $292,309.16 was
spoilt for salaries. The practical
work mentioned consisted of the
growing of crops, caring for animals,
shop work and managing various
farm enterprises that would enable
the person to put into practice the
principles learned In the class room.
This work Is supervised by teachers
of vocational agriculture.
Supervisor Thomas holds that, the
teaching of vocational agricultural
pays from a production as well as a,
financial standpoint. For example,
by producing 389.2 bushels of corn
on three acres Arthur Marlowe, of
the Tabor high school. Columbus
county, had the. honor being the
champion grower of corn among the
5,000 students of vocational agri
culture. The agricultural students
grew 304 pounds more of corn to the
acre, and 154 pounds more of tobac
co to the acre than was the average
state yield of these crops.
The "three to one" com contest
carried on during the 1930 season
for all day and evening students in
38 departments of the eastern coun
ties, whereby each student attempt
ed to grow three times his county*
average of corn per acre, met with
good success. Of the 288 entrants
95 succeeded in meeting the require
Fifty-three adults grew an average
j of 75.3 bushels per acre on five-acre
I projects lit a cast of 36 cents per
bushel. Forty-two all-day students
produced 74.(1 bushels per acre on n
Hirer-acre basis at a cost of 43 cents
per bushel. The county yields were
based on an average of the years
1938-1929. The production costs in
cluded both man and horse labor
and rent on land as well. A centra'
i dinner was given the winners anr'
[district-wide prizes were present»■'
to both men and boys producing th
most corn on their alloted acreage
The contest will be continued dm
I fig the 1931 season, A special at
item.pt Is. being made at this time V
! increase the livestock per farm an
j thereby balance the one or two env
! fuming system. In order to do th)
the farmers as well as the boy
studying agriculture realize that th
corn acreage must not only be in
creased but that the .yield per acre
must be Increased also. In the cotn
munties producing the largest num
ber of hogs will be found the great
est effort being put forth to grow
corn. One community in Beaufort
county that had 68 to enter the con
test shipped 30 cars of hogs. There
will be still a larger number enter
ing this year.
The North Carolina teacher of vo
cational agriculture reaches a large
number of persons In organized in
struction. Last year each of the 154
teachers reached on nn average 68
persons. 32 of these being regular
high school boys and 36 farmers i
and farm women.
A practical proof that agricultural
education pays, Supervisor Thomas
tells of one year's results by teach
ers In the Cary high. In Waite coun
ty, where 144 students and farmers
received organized instruction in ag
riculture, and where 1,500 calls for
individual service were answered.
Results; The 77 evening class mem

73-yeav-oid founder of the Stough

about his own obituary notice. Re

"There I sat with my friend and
discussed the issue of the newspaper
which had just come from the press.
This is a hell of a sheet.’ The accu

the pride I had felt over the two

“Passing through the paper, my
friend commented on the type of

leaned over In his chair, and said:
•“Some day. young fellow, ,"m go

you are on a newspaper here, I do
not want to find you writing any of
this nonsense about me. Just one
line.' 1 gave my solemn promise his
wish sholud be carried out.
‘‘Once more I visited my friend In
company with a second person. My
friend was weary; so we sought to
leave. Calling me back to nis bed
side, my friend said:

time left. Remember your promise.
