Hoey Governor TO ALL NORTH CAROLINIANS It should be the desire of every loyal North Caro-linian to know more about our state and there is no institution which offers a greater opportunity in this regard than our annual State Fair. Each year the Fair brings together the East and the West, the people and the products of the Moun-tains, Piedmont and Coastal Plain. Representatives of agriculture, of industry and business who attend the Fair have impressed upon them their interdependence. The continued progress of our great state depends upon the cooperation and mutual understanding of us all, and it is primarily for that reason that I urge every man, woman and child who can to visit the Fair this year.

Designed to feature present accomplishments in the fields of education, rural life and industrial development of North Carolina, this department of the North Carolina Fair is a new departure in the field of major exhibits. It is the hope and purpose of the management that the exhibits entered shall be miniature expositions of the three great leading industries of each county. In the field of education should be shown the new and progressive ideals and accomplishments with schools of both grammar and high school grades with any phase of the departments of education; in the field of rural life should be exhibited improved farm and home methods showing definite accomplishments on the land by rural men and women, girls and boys, with some of the outstanding movements which have had the support of all the farm people; in the field of industrial development should be shown progress made in the major industries and commercial development of the county whether in the field of mining, manufacturing, lumbering, tourist or any other paramount industry. These tri-purpose exhibits are being encouraged that the great resources of North Carolina might be brought to the forefront in a fitting and com-prehensive manner and it is desired that the county home and farm agents, vocational teachers, school superintendents and principals, boards of trade and chambers of commerce, manufacturers, civic clubs and women's organi-zations will all have a part in planning and preparing the exhibits displayed. Substantial prizes are offered for the first four places and the judges will consider carefully, in placing the awards, whether the exhibit gives a bal-anced portrayal of the education, farming and industrial activities of the county. It is also expected that the three phases of the exhibit shall be attractively displayed with representative materials secured within the borders of the county entered. The exhibits will be judged according to the following score card: Balanced Display 40 percent Representative of County 25 percent Attractiveness of exhibit 20 percent Quality of materials 15 percent Total 100 percent Premiums valued at $1,750.00 are offered in this department and are as follows: First prize __ $'< 50.00 Second prize 500.00 Third prize ....:. 300.00 Fourth prize __ 200.00 Total $1,750.00 31 Use Caterpillar Diesel Tractors and Caterpillar Terracing Machines For County Soil Erosion Control Programs CATERPILLAR was the choice of the following coun-ties: Guilford, Henderson, Iredell, Yadkin, Surry, Ca-barrus, Stokes, Forsyth, Davidson, Anson, Richmond, Randolph, Rockingham, Alamance, Orange, Person, Cas-well, Granville, Johnston, Franklin, Halifax, Rowan.

Each exhibitor should read the following carefully: As far as possible, it is desirable that horticultural exhibits be brought in and set up by the growers. Where this is not possible the Superintendent will be glad to receive and place on exhibit all suitable horticultural prod-ucts sent in. However, the Superintendent will not pack box, basket, or barrel entries for exhibit. These must come in already packed. All exhibits competing for premiums must be grown in the State. In sending in fruit for exhibition, select only those specimens that are perfect in form and color, and free from all insect and fungus blemishes. Do not knock or shake off the fruit from the tree, but pick each specimen by hand, taking care not to pull out the stem. Fruit should be exhibited as nearly as possible in its natural state, and no preference will be given highly polished fruit by the judges. Fruit to be exhibited in trays, and in plates, should be carefully wrapped and packed. Each fruit should be wrapped separately in paper and packed firmly in box or barrel, taking care to avoid bruising. Label each variety plainly and put in papers to keep varieties separated. Do not use hay, fodder, excelsior, or any other dusty material in packing. Nail up firmly. IMPORTANT—READ Address each package plainly to "State Fair, Department of Horticul-ture, Raleigh, N. C." Each package should be plainly marked with the name and address of the exhibitor. Each package should be plainly marked giving the class in which contents are entered. PLATES. Plates for the variety exhibits of fruits will be furnished free by the Fair. A perfect plate of fruit should contain five specimens, and no more, characteristic of the variety, with stems attached, of high color, uniform, marketable size, free from cuts and bruises and all insect and fungus blemishes. If additional specimens are sent in by growers, the Superintendent will select and place on exhibit the best possible plate to be made from all the specimens submitted. TRAYS. The dimensions of the trays are 11% x 18 x 3 inches inside measurements. The exhibitor should make a tray of the required dimen-sions and pack each variety to be displayed in this class, in order to know how many apples are needed. Four or five extra apples per tray should be sent in order to allow for rot and damage in transit. BASKETS. Commercial basket apples should be graded to uniform size, high color, freedom from bruises, insect and fungus blemishes. They should be properly packed and ring faced in standard bushel baskets. GENERAL RULES. A premium offered for a general collection of fruit will not be awarded to a mere pile of apples, or other fruit, but must be for a real collection, arranged on plates and all correctly labeled, and no fruit will be counted in a collection unless it is a fair specimen of the variety. No trashy fruit of any kind will be counted merely to 49 ALUS CHALMERS TRACTORS Will Lead the Way to Shorter Hours and Higher Pay THE ALL-CROP HARVESTER Has Successfully Harvested 84 Different Crops Myers Deep and Shallow Well WATER SYSTEMS Mill Supplies—Machinery DILLON SUPPLY CO. Raleigh, N. C. Rocky Mount, N. C. and Durham, N. C. 50 make up a collection. A premium for the best collection of grapes, peaches or any other fruit will not be awarded for a mere number, but to the quality of the exhibit mainly. Fruit entered under the heading "Any Other Fruit" should be named, if possible, by the exhibitor. The superintendent and judges may withhold premiums in any class where the article is not worthy. Exhibitors entering fruit which has been shown before or at other Fairs will be penalized by the judges. No article entered for competition in any one class will be permitted to compete for a premium in any other class, excepting sweepstakes. An exhibitor cannot compete for more than one prize in any class. No attention will be paid by the Committee to any fruit or other exhibit that is not arranged in accordance with these rules. All fruit must be shipped or brought in so as to arrive at the Fair Grounds not later than Monday at 10 a.m., of Fair Week, charges prepaid. The awards for fruits will be made as soon as possible after the opening of the Fair. No exhibitor will be allowed to discuss exhibits with the Judges, or to interfere in any way while the Judges are at work. All fruits shown for premiums must remain in place until the close of the Fair. 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.

G. WEAVER, Asst. Prof. Horticulture State College, Raleigh, N. C. Exhibits Must Be Grown in North Carolina Entries Close 12:00 Noon, Tuesday, October 10th, 1038 If necessary exhibits may be shipped to the State Fair, Department of Horticulture, Raleigh, N. C, but flower exhibits are generally brought to the Fair by exhibitors owing to their perishable nature. If shipped they should be packed carefully and the shipment should be accompanied by an entry blank properly filled out and addressed to the State Fair. Cat-alogs and entry blanks may be obtained from the Secretary's office or on request by mail to the Secretary. Even when flowers or plants are being brought to the Fair entries should be made in advance by mail addressed to the Secretary, N. C. State Fair, Raleigh, N. C, who will gladly furnish entry blanks for the purpose. When exhibits are brought to the Fair the exhibitor should call first at the desk of the entry clerk and get entry tags, then the exhibits and tags corresponding should be delivered to the Superintendents of the Department who will put the exhibit on display. It will greatly facilitate matters for the exhibitor as well as the Fair if entries are made in advance by mail, as this permits writing up tags before the rush and having them ready for the exhibitor on arrival at the entry clerk's desk. The time for closing entries is set late (Tuesday noon) to accommodate exhibitors of cut flowers. Other exhibits, such as potted plants, bulbs, etc., should be entered earlier,—not later than noon Monday of Fair week. Exhibitors should be sure to get their claim checks as they turn over exhibits to the Department. These claim checks should be care-fully kept by the exhibitor and brought back at the end of the Fair for use in claiming exhibits. The Superintendent of the Department has no other means of identifying exhibitors and cannot be expected to give out exhibits unless claim checks are presented. POTTED PLANTS All plants must be in place by 4 p.m. Monday, of Fair week.

Plants, like animals, need plenty of food to get the vigorous start which will help them to ward off diseases and other harmful factors. Experiment stations have found that cotton and tobacco par-ticularly need plenty of potash. Fer-tilizers for these crops applied at the rate of 400-1,000 pounds per acre should contain 8% potash to insure young plants receiving enough of this necessary plant food. Later in the growing season more potash can s~\ niun in be added in a nitrogen-potash top-dresser for cotton and other crops if required. On tobacco an additional side-dresser of potash should be added 20 days after setting plants. Consult your county agent or ex-periment station about the fertility of your soil. See your fertilizer dealer. You will be surprised how little extra it costs to apply the right amount of potash. Write us for fur-ther information and literature.

Southern Office: Mortgage Guarantee Building, Atlanta, Georgia 60 CUT FLOWERS Cut flowers must be in place ready for exhibition Tuesday of Fair week by 12:00 o'clock, soon after which they will be judged. In bringing flowers to the Fair, especially dahlias, they should be carefully packed in boxes without crowding in order to preserve the petals against injury. Damage to petals, especially in the case of dahlias and roses, may affect the score when judging. Flowers should be kept from automobile drafts as much as possible when transporting. In judging classes B-163 to 170, inclusive, consideration will be given to the following points: (1) The artistic arrangement of the flowers in the container—60 points; (2) The quality and condition of the flowers—40 points. Emphasis will not be placed on the rarity of the flowers exhibited. In these classes the exhibits must conform to dimensions or conditions stated. The dimensions refer to flowers, basket, basket handle and any ribbon or other attachment. In other words, the dimensions over all. If any dimension is greater or less than class calls for the judges will have to disqualify the entry. Exhibitors are cautioned to see that their baskets are entered in the class conforming to their size. In classes 166 to 168 the exhibit should be appropriate both as to breadth and height over all, including container, for the size of table stated. The judges will consider whether the exhibit is appropriate for its class as well as considering the artistic arrangement of flowers in the container and the quality and condition of the flowers. Except in classes B-163 to 170, inclusive, all cut flowers will be exhibited in vases. Class B 1st 2d 3d 163—Basket cut flowers, large (over 18 in. di-ameter) $5.00 164—Basket cut flowers, intermediate (between 8 and 18 in. diameter) 3.00 165—Basket cut flowers, small, dainty (less than 8 in. diameter) 3.00 166—Floral centerpiece for large dining table (formal dinner 12 people) 5.00 167—Floral centerpiece for small dining table (luncheon for six people) 3.00 168—Floral centerpiece for small table (2 to 4 people) 2.00 169—Floral arrangement for invalid's breakfast tray 2.00 170—Artistic arrangement of flowers, fruits or foliage, or combinations, suggestive of autumn and the harvest season, exhibit to be within maximum of 30 in. over all 5.00 3.00 1.00 171—Cut roses, collection (1 bloom each, 6 varieties) 3.00 172—Cut roses, any variety (one specimen) 2.00 173—Cut dahlias, collection, decorative type (1 bloom each, 5 varieties) 4.00 174—Cut dahlias, decorative type, any variety (1 specimen) 2.00 175—Cut dahlias, collection, cactus or hybrid cac-tus (1 bloom each, 5 varieties) 4.00 176—Cut dahlias, cactus or hybrid cactus, any variety (1 specimen) 2.00 177—Cut dahlias, minature type, collection (2 blooms each, 5 varieties) 3.00 61 3.00 $1.00 2.00 1.00 2.00 1.00 3.09 1.00 2.00 1.00 1.50 1.00 1.50 1.00 1.50 1.00 1.50 1.00 2.00 1.00 1.00 2.00 1.00 1.00 1.50 1.00 b-0 C • I— < 73 0) <U c3 au CO 4-i o O ro Vh G n) £ >^ U 73 73 T^ <U 73 g <u .G > •i— « C/5 +u-> no bJO <U ci £2 £ >^ c g rt aj £ o CO CO z U }-l c O 4-i o b£ CO ctf <U £ G co 4> co z >> g rv.

Entries should be in place by 4:00 p.m. Monday of Fair week. Dish gardens may be arranged on plates, platters, trays, or dishes of any reasonable size. They will be judged on the basis of the craftsmanship of the exhibitor, the artistic qualities of the exhibit and the quality of materials used. The exhibits may represent Japanese gardens, landscapes, farms properly planted, homes, or any other feature. Plant materials should predominate, but any kind of material can be used. To the extent neces-sary, materials such as mirrors, rocks, ornaments, wood, etc., may be used. It is suggested that the exhibitor limit hie exhibit to reasonable size and no exhibit should have any dimension greater than 3 6 inches. The foregoing suggestions apply also to terrariums. The type of ex-hibit desired in this class is much like the dish gardens, except that slightly different materials should be used, the materials being placed inside a glass container covered for the purpose of maintaining moist conditions and plants preferring such moist conditions, such as mosses, Jferns, etc., should be used. Credit will be given by the judges to the 63 SMITH'S—THE ORIGINAL OIL-BURNING TOBACCO CURERS jyfODEL "A" the first successful—the original—oil-burning tobacco curer ever built is, in our opinion, the most efficient mechanism ever devised for the curing of green leaf tobacco. Each burner is an individual unit within itself, which, according to all reasoning, when burning produces a more evenly distributed heat over the entire barn. FORREST H. SMITH nventor of the First Successful Oil Burn-ing Tobacco Curers. MODEL "D", next to model "A" proved to be the most popular curer offered to the public last year.

These should be entered the same as other exhibits in this De-partment. They will be examined by the judges and if considered suffi-ciently meritorious will be judged in competition with any other similar exhibits classed as meritorious. Entries should be in place ready for exhibition and judging Tuesday of Fair week at 12:00 o'clock and will be judged soon thereafter. It is suggested that the exhibitor furnish a written statement giving the name of the exhibit and a brief statement explaining the nature, source and important qualities of same. While it is preferred and intended that this class is for service and reward to bonafide originating parties or agencies, it is not necessary that the exhibit be entered by the originator. It is necessary, however, that it must be both new and meritorious and at least closely related to the fruit, flower or vegetable families.

Hundreds of growers are reporting increased yields and bet-ter quality at less cost. For Tennessee Basic Slag supplies the six important elements all growing things need—phosphoric acid, lime, manganese, magnesium oxide, iron and silica. These vital elements condition the soil, increase yields, improve pastures, and contribute to quick germination and vigorous, healthy plant growth. Despite the fact that Tennessee Basic Slag offers all these elements, it is not expensive. Above all, it is one of the most economical of all plant foods to buy and use.

It is making possible new farming operations. It is making money and saving money for dairymen, poultrymen, plant growers and truckers. It is making farm life more interesting, pleas-anter and more worth while. • AS THE NUMBER OF CONSUMERS OF elec-tricity has increased the cost of electric service has rapid-ly decreased until today electricity is the cheapest com-modity on the American market. • NO FAMILY, even those in the most modest cir-cumstances, need deny themselves the comfort, the con-venience, and the various other advantages that come through the liberal use of electricity. • ON THE FARM particularly electric service means more than mere comfort and convenience. It means the conservation of precious eyesight. It means the saving of time and labor, the conservation of food products and the health of the family. • ADEQUATE AND PROPER LIGHT makes it easier and pleasanter to read, work and study—to say nothing of protecting the eyes and saving doctor's bills. • THE RADIO brings an endless variety of enter-tainment, and musical and educational features. �� THE ELECTRIC REFRIGERATOR brings not only food and health protection, but assures a greater variety in diet and the saving of food stuffs formerly wasted. • THE ELECTRIC RANGE, with its clean, con-trolled heat, saving the farm woman countless hours of arduous kitchen duty—and makes the kitchen comforta-ble and attractive. • THE ELECTRIC IRON, washing machine, food mixing machines and other electrical appliances save time and labor and give added time to the housewife for rest and recreation and for other duties that are pleas-anter and, in many instances, more important than housework itself.

C, July 6, 1938. The American Agricultural Chemical Co. Greensboro, North Carolina. Gentlemen : After experimenting with practically every brand of standard fertilizers sold in this section, we have proven to our satisfaction that AGRICO returns more dollars per acre than any other fertilizer on the market. Your discovery that each plant requires a different and particular kind of food, and your practice of exam-ining the soils to find out definitely just how each crop should be fed and then making a fertilizer containing the correct plant foods for each crop, should be worth mil-lions of dollars to the farmers if they will only take advantage of it. At last you can put the farmer in a position to do his work on a positive and intelligent basis, such as the suc-cessful manufacturer, instead of paying for his mistakes of guessing, which we have done in the past.

TO ALL NORTH CAROLINIANS
It should be the desire of every loyal North Caro-linian
to know more about our state and there is no
institution which offers a greater opportunity in this
regard than our annual State Fair.
Each year the Fair brings together the East and
the West, the people and the products of the Moun-tains,
Piedmont and Coastal Plain. Representatives of
agriculture, of industry and business who attend the
Fair have impressed upon them their interdependence.
The continued progress of our great state depends upon
the cooperation and mutual understanding of us all,
and it is primarily for that reason that I urge every
man, woman and child who can to visit the Fair this
July 20, 1938.
