Kvery- cotton grower whould find

says D. H. Standi, cotton mar- 1
keting specialist for the State <"o!
lege Extension Service.
Standi points out that current
cotton prices are higher than
most farmers can remember. and
growers in some sections have
been so pleased to hear of "40
cent' cotton" that they have ea
gerly accepted tMm amount as
Soon as it was /)fiered
In some cases, the specialist]
says, mav mistake. For i
example, during recent week cot- I
ton which was bringing 40 cents j
a pound in one area of the State |
was bringing 41 1/2 to 42 cents j
in other areas. Prices of middling
and strict middling cotton have
varied thin month from. 40 1/2 to
more than 42 1/2 cents a pound.
"Forty cents a pound may
seem to be p good price for cot
ton." asserts Standi, "but every
farmer should find out what
grade and staple he has and what
it is worth before selling "
Standi adds that although a
definite cottonseed price has not
been established in most areas,
indications are that prime seed
(grading 100) will bring more

A Resolution
The passing of Alfred Lee, Bul
winkle* member of Congress from
the Eleventh Congressional Dis
trict of North Carolina, has brou
ght profound sorrow to the entire
state and nation, as a mast high
ly respected and useful citizen
haa been taken from our midst.
Alfred Lee Bulwinkle was born
in Charleston, South Carolina, on
April 21, 1883, and moved to Gas
ton County in 1891. Mr. Bulwin
klc attended the law school of the
University of North Carolina and
was admitted to the Bar in 1904.
He later received the degree of
Doctor of Civil Laws from Lenoir
Rhyne College.
In 1916 Alfred Lee Bulwinkle
was nominated as a candidate
for State Senate in Gaston Coun
ty. He withdrew, however, when
war with Mexico threatened and
went with.the National Guard to
Ihti M<a-lcaa&?rdg^>YUh tUs. re
turn of his company from the
Mexican border, in 1917, Captain
Bulwinkle Joined the Second bat
talion of the 113th Field Artillery
of rhe ciOth Division, and was pro
moted to the rank of Major before
that unit was sent to fight in
France- With the end of World
War I, Major Bulwinkle returned
to Gastonia, and in 1920 was e
lected to the House of Represen
tatives of the Congress of the
United States for he first time, in
which body he served contin
uously until the time of his dea
th, except for the period from
1928 to 1930.
In Washington Major Bulwin
kle was considered an authority
on ;ivia,tlon legislation and was
the United States delegate to the
International Civil Aviation Con
ference in 1944 and in 1947. In
the House of Representatives he
was a member of the committee
on Interstate and Foreign Com
merce( where he was . a second
ranking membet. He also was vi
tally interested in veterans legis
lation and helpd draft the Vet
erans Act of World War I. He
helped write the first wage and
hour law and wrote much of the
public health legislation.
He was an active member of
the Holy Trinity Lutheran church
of Gastonia and was a member of i
the Executive Board of the Unit
ed Lutheran Church of America.
Endowed with an affable dis
position and wjth all the quali
fications for leadership, he made
a favorable and lasting impres
sion with those -with whom he
came in contact. The State of
North Carolina has lost one of its
most influential citizens, and the
Eleventh Congressional ? District
ha3 lost a devoted servant of its
Therefore,, be it resolved that
the Young Democratic Clubs of
the Eleventh Congressional Dis
trict of North Carolina and the
individual members thereof do
attest their esteem and respect
for Alfred Lee Bulwinkle and
their grief at the severing of the
ties which bound us togther, and
we offer to his family our sym

New Idea Tried
For Yule Trees
A Transylvania County farmer
is trying a new idea in the pro
duction o? Christmas trees.
Walter Hart of Brevard obser
ved that Christmas trees gener
ally are used for about two weeks j
during the Yule season and are|
then thrown away. The thought
struck him that perhaps some j
families would like to use a liv-J
ing Christmas tree and aftef "the,
holidays plant it about the
grounds as an ornamental tree.
Last spring Hart set out 1,
000 blue spruce and 2,000 Norway
spruce seedlings Which he bought
from a private nursery. He spac
ed the seedlings three feet by
three feet. When they are ready
for harvesting, he plaftis to lift
them with the roots on,. set them
in individual pots, and sell tnem j
as living Christmas trees.
These dual-purpose trees will ,
be {rimmed in the house for v a
brief period during the holidays
and can then be replanted out- :
side. - t
According to Joh'n E. Ford, for
estry specialist for the State Col- i
lege Extension Service, Hart has ;
several idle acres of hillside with 1
a northern exposure. He intends '
to develop this ar?a into a Christ- j
mas tree plantation by setting I
out a few thousand spruce each 1
paper published in the Eleventh
Congressional District and that a
copy be delivered to the family
of the deceased.

Ladino Clover Cuts
Feed Bill On Hogs
'? r
A. B. Odom, Negro farmer of
Gatesville, Gates county, has
found that Ladino clover and fes
cue save at least one- third of the
cost of raising hogs for market.
According to H. L. Mitchell, Ne
gro county agent in Gates for the |
State College Extension Service,
Odom has been quite successful
in raising hogs this year. During
July he sold 27 six-months-old
animals that weighed an average
i of 196 pounds. On September 5
j he sold 40 that averaged 197 1/2
I pounds. The latter groups was
i slightly more than six months j
oid. |
Odom farms with S. B. Mitchell
of Gatesvilie. They plan to seed
more Ladlno and fescue this fall.
They also plant corn and soy
beans for fall feeding, and small
grain for winter grazing. Lespo
deza will also figure in their
plans for 1951, says Odom.
