Mr. Kittrell served with distinction and dedication on the State Board of Agriculture from 1953 until his death. Mr. Kittrell represented the swine industry on the Board and made un-told contributions to the betterment of this industry through his service. He served in this capacity during a critical time, particularly in the area of animal health. His perseverance and support of the N. C. Department of Agriculture saw the eradication of hog cholera and brucellosis in the state. Always a friend of the State Fair, George Kittrell was truly a great North Carolinian.

Mr. Kittrell's untimely death in 1976 and Mr. Shelton's retirement from the Board have left a void which will be hard to replace on the North Carolina Board of Agriculture. These leaders have been an invaluable voice in shaping the policies of the North Carolina State Fair. Both have contributed much to the continued success and improvement of the fair. Their behind-the-scenes counsel and guidance has left their mark on this institution. We can all enjoy a better North Carolina State Fair because of these great North Carolinians. AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENT MARKS 100th YEAR (Excerpts from story by Elaine Matthews, NCDA) In the spring of 1877 the N. C. General Assembly enacted legislation creat-ing "a Department of Agriculture, Immigration and Statistics" to deal with problems of the State's agricultural economy which had been severely stricken by the Civil War and Reconstruction periods. The law provided for a seven-member Board of Agriculture to supervise the department's activities. The board selected Anson County's Lenonidas Polk, who had been a moving spirit in the establishment of the NCDA, as its first commissioner. For an annual salary of $3,000, Polk was charged with such duties as improving sheep husbandry, seeking causes of diseases among domestic animals, quarantining sick stock, regulating transportation of all animals, seeking to check insect ravages, fostering new crops in the state. In 1899 the legislature provided for election of a commissioner by the public who chose Samuel L. Patterson of Caldwell County. NCDA's first official home was the second story of the Briggs Building on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. With the office staff came the entire State Museum and Geological Survey, whose care was transferred to the department in 1879. The Experiment Station, which had been created to analyze fertilizers, was connected with the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. In 1881 the Board of Agriculture decided to bring all the divisions of the department together and bought the old National Hotel on Edenton Street at the present site of the Agriculture Building constructed in 1923 and annexed in 1954. During its first 100 years the NCDA established and has constantly im-proved a wide variety of programs to promote and protect agricultural interests of the Tar Heel state: • Because much deception and fraud were being practiced in the sale of fertilizers at the time the Department was established, one of its first responsibilities was fertilizer inspection and analysis. • The actual analysis of fertilizers was to be carried out by the Experiment Station in Chapel Hill. • As a result of legislation of 1851, a State Geologist was appointed by the Governor to retain samples of the minerals of the State. This collection formed the nucleus of the State Museum. • Among the Department's earliest responsibilities were "investigations relative to the ravages of insects." Actually, pests did not pose much of a problem to North Carolina farmers until the mid 1890's when the forests were cut down, forcing the birds to leave. • In 1887, the General Assembly had instructed the Board of Agriculture to "cooperate and aid in the formation of Farmers' Institutes in all the counties of the State." These institutes were the forerunners of the Agricultural Extension program in the state. • The N. C. College of Agricultural and Mechanic Arts (now N. C. State University) was an offspring of the Department of Agriculture. In 1887 the Board began seeking donations for the establishment of an industrial college and looking for sites. A 3V2-acre lot in the northwest part of Raleigh was purchased for $2,100. 12 Even though the original act establishing the Department of Agriculture called for animal health protection, it was 1898 before a State Veteri-narian was appointed. Under the first elected Commissioner, Samuel L. Patterson, the Depart-ment was given more regulatory duties, including the administration of the Pure Food Law, passed the the General Assembly in 1899. The pur-pose of this law was to prevent the adulteration and misbranding of food and drink for both humans and animals. The first laws relating to petroleum products were passed in 1903, at which time heating oil, "Kerosene," was being used primarily for light-ing. Some of this product contained such a large amount of sulphur that it was found to be a health hazard as well as causing deterioration of various fabrics and other materials. By 1917 the Department was also given the responsibility of en-forcing the Gasoline Law. Seed testing actually began in the Botany Division in 1909. The original act establishing the Department had included the regulation of seed sales, and some testing of seeds had been conducted along with the testing of drinking water and plant and seed identification. However, the real emphasis on seed testing came in 1909 with the passage of the Seed Law. The marketing service began in 1913 as the "Division of Cooperative Marketing." By 1924 Market News reported that the division had eight branches: livestock and poultry; fruits and vegetables; farm crops; statistical reports; market news service; rural organization; farm financing through cooperative banks; and a state warehouse system. The need for communication between the Department of Agriculture and the agricultural public it served was evident from the beginning. In 1877, Commissioner Polk started a weekly farm paper called The Farmer and Mechanic. This paper eventually become independent and was replaced by The Bulletin of the North Carolina Department of Agriculture. To protect the financial interests of cotton growers, the legislature of 1919 passed a law creating a state warehouse system. The system established a guarantee fund so that a warehouse receipt would be universally accepted as collateral. The first State Fair, held in November, 1853, was sponsored by the State Agricultural Society. The site was about 10 blocks east of the Capitol in Raleigh. In 1873 the fair was moved to a 53-acre lot on Hillsboro Road, near the present Raleigh Little Theatre. The Society poured approximately $50,000 into the development of the grounds. In all, the Agricultural Society sponsored the State Fair for 73 years, with interruptions during the Civil War and Reconstruction period. Among the most famous guests of the fair during the Society's sponsor-ship were Theodore Roosevelt in 1905 and William Jennings Bryan in 1907. By 1924, the Society asked for aid from the State and the City of Raleigh. A State Fair Board was appointed, and in a few years the fair was moved to its present site on the west side of Raleigh. In 1930 the State Fair was first placed under the Department's adminis-tration. For a few years the Department leased out the operation com-mercially, but in 1937, Commissioner Kerr Scott decided that the management should be directly under the Department. Dr. J. S. Dorton was chosen as manager, and the fair first began to show profits. 13 ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE 1025 Blue Ridge Blvd., Raleigh, N.C. 27607 Phone (919) 733-2145 (919) 832-7549 ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF Arthur K.

The Fair will furnish free the original bedding for each stall and pen, but exhibitors are required to care for and feed their own animals and they must keep stall and pens clean and well bedded thereafter. The State Fair will employ police, guards and traffic directors, and will use diligence to promote safety and protection of patrons, and their exhibits and property on the Fairgrounds.

STATE FAIR, 1025 BLUE RIDGE BLVD., RALEIGH, N. C. 27607 (Telephone: 832-7549). ENTRIES MAKE ALL ENTRIES EARLY!!! The right is reserved to reject any entry, and all entries received after all space is taken must be rejected. You will find the CLOSING DATES FOR ENTRIES set out in the Rules and Regulations and the general headings of each of the various departments. These dates VARY WITH THE SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE SPECIFIC DEPART-MENT. Check these Closing Dates carefully. SEPARATE ENTRY BLANKS are required for entries in each of the depart-ments. Request the Entry Department supply you with an adequate number of entry blanks. Competition is OPEN TO THE WORLD in the Rabbit Department, Poultry Department, Goats, Dairy Cattle Department, Beef Cattle Breeding Animal Department, in the Swine and Sheep Departments and the Horse 18 Show. Poultry entering the State for exhibition shall be accompanied by a permit from the State Veterinarian of North Carolina or his authorized representative. In all other divisions and departments competition is LIMITED TO RESIDENTS OF NORTH CAROLINA. NO DEPARTMENT SUPERINTENDENT OR DIRECTOR, OR MEM-BERS OF THEIR IMMEDIATE FAMILIES MAY ENTER EXHIBITS IN THEIR RESPECTIVE DEPARTMENTS. All entires (with exceptions noted in the Livestock Division for group classes) must be made in the name of the owner, breeder, manufacturer, grower, producer or one whose skill the exhibit represents. A firm, to be entitled to exhibit as such, must have been organized not less than 30 days prior to the closing date for entries, and such firm must have been organized as a bona fide firm for the purpose of producing, or buying and selling the articles or animals it proposes to exhibit in the name of such firm. A firm will be regarded as one exhibitor. Official printed forms MUST BE USED in making applications for entry. One will be found in the back of this book. USE A SEPARATE FORM FOR ENTRIES IN EACH DEPARTMENT. Be sure to fill out the application form completely, accurately and legibly. Give your rural route number, post office box number, or city street address and zip code. Additional application forms are available upon request to: N. C. STATE FAIR, 1025 BLUE RIDGE BLVD., RALEIGH, N. C. 27607. Incomplete entry forms will be returned for correction if there is time to do so, but REMEMBER: No article or animals will be entitled to exhibit space until proper entry has been made, and no entry will be accepted after the closing date listed for the department. Once an entry is made, it cannot be changed except where it is improperly classed or a mistake has been made in copying the original entry—in which event the changes can be made only with the permission of the Department Superintendent or Director in charge, AND THEN ONLY IN THE OFFICE OF THE ENTRY DIRECTOR." If the records are altered and do not conform with the information on file in the Entry Department, payment of premiums will be withheld. No person except personnel of the Entry Department will be allowed to see the entires, or have access to the entry books, until after the awards are made. The same article or animal cannot be entered for more than one premium number (except as otherwise stated in the Special Department Rules and Regulations). Collections and displays must be made up of specimens other than those entered in single (individual) classes unless otherwise noted. Except for the Horse Show no entry fees are required in any department, except that livestock, poultry, and rabbit exhibitors must include payment of stall, pen, and coop fees with their applications for entry. (SEE HEAD-NOTES OF THESE DEPARTMENTS FOR SCALE OF FEES.) See Dept. H, Arts and Photography head-notes for entry fees in the professional cate-gories. Application forms for entry should be mailed to: N. C. STATE FAIR, 1025 Blue Ridge Blvd., Raleigh, N. C. Effective October 3, 1977 the Entry Depart-ment will be staffed to receive applications for entry in person. 19 Entry Department will be open from October 3 through October 23, 8:00 A.M.-5 P.M. except Sunday, October 16 from 1-5 P.M. The Sunday following the fair the department will be open from 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. EXHIBITS AND EXHIBITORS The dates on which your exhibits must be in place at State Fair VARY FROM ONE DEPARTMENT TO ANOTHER. These dates are set out in the Department Headings and Rules and Regulations. Check these dates carefully so you can get your exhibits IN PLACE AT THE PROPER TIME TO BE JUDGED. UNCLAIMED EXHIBITS FROM COMPETITIVE DEPARTMENTS, will be con-sidered abandoned if not called for within one week after the official closing of the Fair, and may be disposed of as the Manager of the Fair sees fit. SEE SPECIAL RULES for the Culinary and Horticulture Departments. Remember! All exhibits must be officially entered in the Fair, on official printed forms provided for that purpose, before the closing date for entries in the department. No article or animal will be entitled to space or con-sidered in the judging until proper entry has been made. Removal of exhibits before the date and time specified will be cause for forfeit of all premiums won, all fees paid, and the right to further participation in the Fair. In all but livestock departments, entries and exhibits will remain in place through the entire fair. Release times are scheduled for the day following the fair due to the lack of parking available nearby for those to pick up entries or exhibits, and in an effort to keep vehicles off the grounds during crowded con-ditions. The regulation will also assure those attending the fair during the evening of the final day of seeing the same exhibits and entries as those attend-ing earlier. All exhibits will be numbered and recorded in the books of the proper department and class and exhibit tag with corresponding numbers will be issued. This tag must be securely attached to the exhibit and must remain on the exhibit throughout the Fair (except that exhibit tags issued for live-stock and poultry may be conspicuously displayed upon the stall, pen or coop). ENTRY TAGS WILL NOT BE MAILED, but will be available at the Entry Department, Administration Building. Once the exhibit is numbered and tagged, it should be delivered to the Department Superintendent or Director, who will allocate space and either personally arrange the exhibit in a suitable and attractive display, or direct such action by the exhibitor. The State Fair assumes no responsibility for the incorrect tagging of exhibits. All exhibitors are urged to personally bring their exhibits to the Fair and enjoy the educational and recreational advantages of the annual exposi-tion. However, exhibits may be shipped or mailed to: N. C. STATE FAIR, 1025 BLUE RIDGE BLVD., RALEIGH, N. C. 27607, and they will be carefully handled, officially entered, tagged, and otherwise treated in the same manner as previously described. They will be given the same considera-tion with regard to display and judging as exhibits personally delivered. All exhibits shipped or mailed MUST BE PREPAID. No transportation charges for express, postage, freight or drayage will be paid by the Fair. Shipments should be carefully labeled, accompanied by a bill of lading, and 20 properly identified inside and outside the package as to the department, class and premium number under which they have been previously entered. They should be shipped or mailed at least a week or 10 days prior to the opening of the Fair. The management will not be responsible for delayed shipments which arrive at the Fair too late to be considered in the judging. Division Directors and Department Superintendents will have full authority over allocation of space, and will have direct supervision of all exhibits which are considered on exhibition as a part of the Fair's attractions, subject to use as these Directors and Superintendents see fit to add to the educational values of the Fair. Livestock able to be led or driven, or which will follow, must participate in parades and group exhibitions as directed by the Depart-ment Superintendent. All livestock must be cared for by the exhibitor except as noted in the Junior Dairy Cattle and Market Cattle shows. Stalls and pens will be furnished bedding before the Fair, free of charge. Thereafter exhibitors will be required to furnish their own bedding and keep all stalls and pens clean. Feed and straw will be sold on the grounds at prevailing prices. When exhibit tags are issued by the Entry Department for each article entered, a stub with a duplicate number will be given the exhibitor to serve as his claim check to recover and secure the release of his exhibit. Claim checks should be guarded carefully, since Department Superintendents and Directors are not allowed to release any exhibit without presentation of the exhibit tag stub. If the claim check is lost, such loss should be reported promptly and it will be necessary for the exhibitor to furnish the Director of the Entry Department proof of ownership of the article on exhibit. Exhibits entered in the premium classes which are not claimed within one week after the close of the Fair will be considered to have been aban-doned by the exhibitor and will be disposed of as the Manager of the Fair sees fit. Other exhibits, and materials therein, including concession booths, which are not claimed by the exhibitor or concessionaire within 30 days after the end of the Fair will be considered to have been abandoned and will become the property of the State Fair. The Fair management reserves the right to reject any exhibit which does not reflect merit and which would not be a credit to both the exhibitor and the Fair. Also, the right is reserved to reject exhibits which are deemed objectionable or unsuitable for exhibition. All entries are accepted condi-tionally, pending inspection of the article or animal to be exhibited. Any article or animal which proves to be misrepresented or falsely classed will be rejected and the right of the exhibitor to further participation in the Fair will be denied. Division Directors, Department Superintendents, and/or Judges must re-port disqualification of entries to the Manager or Assistant Manager of the State Fair immediately after such action is taken. UNDER NO CIRCUM-STANCES WILL JUDGING BE CONSIDERED OFFICIAL AND PRE-MIUMS PAID IN A CLASS WHERE DISQUALIFICATION IS RECOM-MENDED UNTIL APPROVAL OF THE DISQUALIFICATION(S) IS OBTAINED FROM THE FAIR MANAGER OR ASSISTANT MANAGER. Promiscuous advertising is strictly prohibited. Exhibitors may advertise and distribute literature and free samples from their place of exhibit only, but may not sell any article or animal from their exhibit space without a permit from the manager. The distribution of advertising matter which 21 conflicts in any manner with a concession sold by the Management is pro-hibited. Commercial exhibitors and concessionaires are responsible for keeping the space in and around their exhibits, including unused space, aisles and roadways, clean and free of rubbish. An area of 10 feet around each exhibit booth and concession stand must be thoroughly cleaned by the exhibitor or concessionaire at the end of each Fair day. Failure to do so will be cause for cancellation of contract. No exhibit space assigned may be shared or sub-let without permission of the Fair manager. Exhibitors and Department Superintendents and Directors may have the exclusive use of the lawn in front of the Educational and Commercial exhibit building for parking until midnight, Thursday, October 13, 1977. Special parking facilities for the Livestock and Poultry Division will be provided at the west end of the Fairgrounds. JUDGING AND AWARDS Decision of the judges will be final, and no appeal will be considered except in cases of protest in writing, with strong evidence of fraud or violation of the rules of the Fair. Protests must be filed with the Division Superintendent not later than noon of the day following the award, and must be accompanied by a protest fee of $5.00 which will be retained by the Fail- if the protest is not sustained. The Division Superintendent will appoint a committee to con-sider the protest and all interested parties will be notified of the time of the hearing and will be given an opportunity to be heard. The rules of the International Association of Fairs and Expositions governing appeals will be those of the North Carolina Fair. Judges will not award premiums to any article or animal because of its mere presence. It must be individually worthy. It is not the policy of the Fair to encourage indifferent production of any kind, or to distribute pre-miums equally among exhibitors. No premium will be awarded to any exhibit that does not possess high intrinsic merit. Unless otherwise specified in the Department Rules and Regulations, NO EXHIBITOR MAY WIN MORE THAN TWO PREMIUMS IN ANY ONE INDIVIDUAL CLASS, AND NOT MORE THAN ONE PREMIUM IN ANY GROUP CLASS. No exhibitor may accompany judges during their deliberations except such attendants as are necessaiy to handle and show livestock and other such exhibits. Any exhibitor attempting to interfere with the judges during their adjudications, or who publicly expresses disapproval of the decision of the judges, will be excluded from further competition and any premiums previously won will be forfeited. Fraud or deception as to breeding, or in any other form, will be exposed and the exhibitor guilty of such violation will be excluded from further partici-pation in the Fair, and all premiums previously won will be forfeited. Premiums will be paid only on the basis of the records of the judging reports, which will be signed by the judge and by the Department Superin-tendent or Director. Ribbons will be securely attached to the articles upon which they were awarded, if possible, but the ribbons have no value in the 22 payment of premiums since they may become detached and find their way on to the wrong exhibit. Entries made in wrong classes may be reclassed by the Department Superintendent, BUT ONLY IF SUCH RECLASSIFICATION IS MADE IN THE OFFICE OF, AND WITH THE APPROVAL OF, THE DIRECTOR OF THE ENTRY DEPARTMENT. Records must be changed when entries are reclassed. If the records are altered and the entiy department files are not changed, premiums will be withheld. Judges, when requested, may give the reasons for their decisions embracing the value and desirable qualities of the exhibits to which they have awarded premiums. Judges will not award premiums or ribbons to any article or animal that does not qualify for one of the classes in the State Fair Premium List. Premiums will be paid to winning exhibitors as soon after the awards are made as it is possible to compile and check all reports. Premiums not collected during the Fair will be mailed to the exhibitor at the post office address given on his or her entry form. Errors in premium statements will be corrected until December 1, 1977, after which time the books of the 1977 Fair are closed. The following colors of ribbons will be used to designate awards: Champion Royal Purple Reserve Champion Lavender First Premium Blue Second Premium Red Third Premium White Fourth Premium Pink Fifth Premium Yellow Sixth Premium Dark Green Seventh Premium Light Green Eighth Premium Tan Ninth Premium Gray Tenth Premium, and above Light Blue 23 NOTES 24 Division I GENERAL EXHIBITS GENERAL EXHIBITS Department "A"—COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS Department "B"—4-H EXHIBITS Department "D"—DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION SCHOOL EXHIBITS Department "E"—FLOWER AND GARDEN SHOW Department "G"—HORTICULTURE Department "H"—ARTS AND PHOTOGRAPHY Department "I"—BEES AND HONEY COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT A COMMITTEE IN CHARGE: GEORGE HYATT, JR.

ENTRIES: Please note entry dates as specified in each Division. Where made by mail, advance entries should be MADE EARLY. List ALL CUT FLOWERS you expect to have as it is much easier to "mark off" the flowers that do not bloom in time, than to have to make tags and special entries at the last minute.

You are permitted to drive on the grounds only to unload your flowers.

INFORMATION FOR EXHIBITORS COMPETITION: Limited to Residents of North Carolina (ALL PRODUCTS EX-HIBITED IN THIS DEPARTMENT MUST HAVE BEEN GROWN IN NORTH CAROLINA BY THE PERSON OR FIRM IN WHOSE NAME THE EXHIBIT IS ENTERED.) ENTRIES CLOSE: Thursday, October 13, 1977, at 2:00 p.m. EXHIBITS MUST BE IN PLACE: Thursday, October 13, at 5:00 p.m. JUDGING STARTS: Friday, October 14, 1977, at 8:00 a.m. RELEASE OF EXHIBITS: Sunday, October 23, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., and POSITIVELY NOT BEFORE THAT DATE AND TIME. Exhibits (except apples—see Special Note below) unclaimed by 5:00 p.m. October 23 will be considered abandoned and the Fair will not be responsible for them after that time. SPECIAL NOTE!! Because of the extended duration of the N. C. State Fair it is assumed that most, if not all, apples will be out of condition by the end of the Fair. The Superintendent in charge of the fruit exhibit shall determine the method of distribution and any money received from the salvage of the apple exhibit will be divided according to the volume sold from each county exhibit and that amount will be sent to the respective county 4-H fund for use in 4-H work involving apples. Rules and Regulations Except in cases of conflict, in which event the following Rules and Regu-lations will prevail, the General Rules and Regulations of the Fair will govern this department. BE SURE TO READ THESE IN THE FRONT OF THIS BQOK'BEFORE ENTERING OR COMPETING IN THIS DE-PARTMENT. Some—but not all—are repeated herewith for emphasis, and others apply only to this department. MAKE YOUR ENTRIES EARLY! The right is reserved to reject entries received after all available space is taken. Official printed forms must be used in making applications for entry. Two will be found in the back of this book. Additional copies are available upon 43 request. Use separate forms for entries in EACH CLASS—"1" Fruits and Nuts, and "2 and 3" Vegetables, of this department, and separate forms for entries in each other department of the Fair. Be sure to fill in the application form completely, accurately and legibly. Give your rural route number, post office box number, or city street address and zip code. List the Department Letter "G" for Horticulture and the Class Number "1" for Fruits or Nuts, and "2 and 3" for vegetables, for which each entry is made. Also, list the premium number and the description of the article, exactly as shown in the Premium List. Entry Tags should be picked up at the Entry Department immediately upon arrival on the Fairgrounds. An Entry Tag must be attached to each exhibit before it is presented in the Department for display. As far as possible, it is urged that all horticultural products be brought in and set up by the exhibitor. Where it is not possible, shipments should be made in time to reach the Fairgrounds no later than Wednesday, October 12, and should be addressed to: Superintendent, Horticulture Department, N. C. State Fair, 1025 Blue Ridge Blvd., Raleigh, N. C. 27607. Where it is not possible to personally bring the products to the Fair and arrange them, the Superintendents will be glad to arrange the products in the most attractive manner possible. However, they will not pack box or basket entries for exhibit. Exhibits mailed or shipped to the Fair should be carefully labeled to show the name and address of the exhibitor, and the nature, and class in which entered, of the contents of the package. The State Fair will furnish, PLATES, QUART AND PINT CONTAIN-ERS, CORRUGATED CARTONS FOR SWEET POTATOES, AND TRAYS for exhibits, but no other containers. The number of specimens for each PLATE display is specified in the premium list. Standard size tray, IIV2 x 18 inches inside measurements, and 3 inches deep, will be used. Exhibitors should make a tray of the required dimensions and pack the exhibit to determine the number of specimens required. At least one extra specimen for each plate, and three or four extra specimens for each tray, should be brought or shipped to the Fair to allow for possible damage in transit. To insure uniformity in exhibit material and to facilitate judging, the following sizes for apple varieties will be recognized: Variety Diameter Arkansas 3 to 3V2 Bonum 2% to 3 Delicious and named bud sports 2 3A to 3V4 Grimes 2% to 3 lA Jonathan 2 3A to 3 Golden Delicious 2% to 3V4 Rome and named bud sports 3 to 3'/2 Stayman and named bud sports 3 to 3% Winesap 2% to 3 York and named bud sports 3Vs to 3% nches nches nches nches nches nches nches nches nches nches Fruits and vegetables to be exhibited in plates and trays should be care-fully wrapped and packed for shipment to the Fair. Wrap separately in paper and pack firmly in a box, taking care to avoid bruising. Label each variety plainly and put in dividers to keep varieties separated. Do not use hay, fodder, excelsior or any other dusty packing material. Any exhibit that 44 rots, is unsightly or becomes unsightly will be removed from display (after judging) at the discretion of the superintendent. Quality—Not Quantity In selecting horticultural products for exhibit, choose only those speci-mens that are of uniformly good quality, form and color, true to type, and free from all insect and disease blemishes, and free from cuts and bruises. Premiums offered for the best collection of fruits or vegetables will not be awarded for a mere pile or for the greatest number of varieties, BUT MAINLY ON THE BASIS OF QUALITY. Do not knock or shake fruit from the tree, but pick each specimen by hand, taking care not to pull out the stem. Products should be exhibited as nearly as possible in their natural state, and no preference will be given in the judging for highly polished fruits or vegetables. Entries of "Commercial" containers of apples and sweet potatoes should be graded to uniform marketable size, high color, smoothness, trueness to type, freedom from cuts and bruises, and free from insect and fungus blemishes. They should be properly packed and faced in standard containers. Entries of "Collections" and under "Any Other Variety" must be correctly named by the exhibitor. In the nomenclature of fruits, the names adopted by the American Pomological Society shall rule, and no variety will be accepted that has not been admitted to their catalogue, except in the case of seedlings never before exhibited. Awards and Judging No awards will be made for unworthy specimens, where quality is lacking, or where any of the Rules and Regulations governing these exhibits are disregarded. No article entered for competition in any class will be permitted to compete for a premium in any other class. AN EXHIBITOR CANNOT COMPETE FOR MORE THAN ONE PRIZE IN ANY CLASS. No exhibitor will be allowed to discuss exhibits with the judges, or to interfere in any way while the judges are at work.

BE SURE TO READ THOSE IN THE FRONT OF THIS BOOK. Some—but not all—are repeated herewith for emphasis, and others of the following Rules and Regulations apply only to this Division. Entries MAKE YOUR ENTRIES EARLY!

List the class number, as indicated in the premium list, for which each entry is made. Use a separate line for each animal. Do not make entries in the Championship classes. Indicate if you plan to make entries in the group and/or herd classes, but it is not necessary to name the animals which will make up your group or herd entries until after the judging of the individual classes. Entries in the group and herd classes must have previously been exhibited in the individual classes. List, also, on the application form the name (or ear tag number) and registry number of each animal entered, its date of birth, its sex, the names (or ear tag numbers) and registry numbers of its sire and dam, and the name of the breeder.

Rabbits develop-ing signs of infectious or communicable diseases during the show will be placed in isolation and shall not be removed for purpose of exhibiting. Boxes used in transporting live rabbits to the Fair will not be allowed to remain inside the exhibit building during the Fair. They may be brought into the building in order to place the rabbits on exhibition, and again to pick up the rabbits at the end of the show.

The fee for pullorum-typhoid testing at the fair-grounds will be six cents per bird, with a minimum fee of $1.00 per exhibitor. No poultry shall have received a live virus vaccine within 30 days prior to entering the Fair. It is recommended that all birds be vaccinated for laryno-otracheitis with a modified live virus vaccine at least 30 days and not more than one year before the show. VENT VACCINE MUST NOT BE USED. 70 All birds must be identified with tamper-proof bands. Bands placed on birds tested at the fairgrounds by state testers will satisfy this requirement. Poultry entered at the Fair are subject to examination (including blood test and swads) by a representative of the North Carolina Department of Agriculture. Birds will not be accepted which are infected with or showing any clinical signs of an infectious or communicable disease, or are infested with lice and/or mites.

All of the above requirements must be satisfied before this permit will be issued. Exhibits and Exhibitors Only vehicles operated by the fair management will be allowed in the barn area. The Fair management will use diligence to insure the safety of livestock entered for exhibition or display, but under no circumstances will it be re-sponsible for loss, injury, theft or damage by fire, lightning, wind, or any other agency, to such livestock on exhibition or display. All livestock on exhibition must be cared for by the exhibitor (except entries in Special Junior Dairy Cattle Exhibits.) All stalls and pens (except entries in Special Exhibits) will be well bedded one time by the Fair, free of charge. Thereafter, exhibitors will be required to furnish their own bedding. The Fair reserves the right to discriminate against both excessive obesity, which cannot be a profitable condition for breeding animals, and excessive leanness, in which condition animals are unfit for exhibition. No barren animals will be eligible in breeding classes. An affidavit that an animal is a breeder must be furnished on request. All cattle must be halter-broken. No dairy bull over one year of age will be allowed on the grounds without a ring in his nose and must not be led from his stall except by a staff, rope or chain attached to or leading through the ring. Boars over one year of age must have their tusks removed. Exhibitors must keep their animals uncovered between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. each day of the Fair. Premium money will be withheld from exhibitors violating this rule, except in case of sickness of animals or inclement weather, and then only on authorization of the Superintendent. A great educational feature of the Fair is the exhibitions and parades of approved livestock by breeds and ages. Exhibitors refusing for any cause not meeting with the approval of the management to lead out animals for parade will not only forfeit all premiums won, but will be barred from further participation in the Fair, and will be required to remove their stock from the Fairgrounds within six hours after such refusal, and will forfeit any fees paid. Misrepresentation as to breeding and irregularity in showing will be exposed and any premium won by such exhibitor will be withheld. Certificates of registration must be shown on demand of the Livestock Superintendent. Any artificial means of removing or remedying physical defects or con- 71 formation in exhibition animals, such as lifting or filling under the skin, will be considered fraud and deception. All animals giving evidence of such treatment will be barred from exhibition at this Fair, and at all Fairs holding membership in the International Association of Fairs and Expositions. Exhibitors must keep the space in the rear of their stalls or pens, and the alleyways in the exhibition halls, clear and clean. All litter must be deposited where di

The 1977 Premium Book is dedicated to the Memory of George P. Kittrell
North Carolina lost one of its most outstanding agricultural leaders last
year with the death of George P. Kittrell. Mr. Kittrell served with distinction
and dedication on the State Board of Agriculture from 1953 until his death.
Mr. Kittrell represented the swine industry on the Board and made un-told
contributions to the betterment of this industry through his service.
He served in this capacity during a critical time, particularly in the area of
animal health. His perseverance and support of the N. C. Department of
Agriculture saw the eradication of hog cholera and brucellosis in the state.
Always a friend of the State Fair, George Kittrell was truly a great North
