between University of Georgia and
The Camilla boys played the boys
from Thomasville on the local court
Friday night, losing by seven points.
The score was 31 to 24.
Our boys started off like a whirl¬
wind, Hilliard and Culpepper scoring
6 points before the visitors realized
we were leading. However, their
their height, and weight enabled them
to get the lead and keep it for a
while, leading by 2 points at the end
of half. Then our boys took the lead
again and led by 3 points at end of
3rd quarter. During the last quar¬
ter, Willis, a “seven footer” from
Thomasville started to putting the
ball through and before he could be
stopped the game had ended. Willis
and Zolumas starred from Thomas¬
ville; Jackson for Camilla, played a
good defensive game, while honorable
mention is made of “Pee-Wee” Hil¬
liard and Culpepper.
The girls played Sale City, the
game resulting in a tie, 13 to 13. Our
girls began playing like the “champs”
they are, leading the score by 10 to 1
at end of first quarter, but the Sale
City girls began to “open their eyes”
and realize that they would have to
play as they had never played before,
so they summoned all their playing
ability and gave us a game which
kept everyone guessing.
Watch the school news for an¬
nouncements of the next game, and
be sure to come out.

It is useless to attempt to make a
profitable crop of tobacco without the
use of commercial fertilizers, and the
experience of observant growers and
the results of tests of our Experiment
Station indicate that a heavy applica¬
tion of high grade goods is the most
A fertilizer containing 8 per cent
phosphoric acid, 3 per cent ammonia,
and 3 per cent (ordinarily referred to
as an 8-3-3) has for a long time been
a standard tobacco fertilizer. Tests
and results, however, have shown
there are many soils in South Geor¬
gia and North Florida, the lighter,
sandier ones, on which the use of
more ammonia and more potash is
desirable and profitable. Experi¬
ments at the Tifton Station indicate
that beneficial results are secured by
increasing the potash content of the
fertilizer to as much as 8 per cent,
and that there is at least no harm
and the possibility of securing bene¬
ficial results by using more phosphoric
acid, while many farmers have found
by actual experience the use of more
ammonia is profitable. The result is
there are many higher grade ferti¬
lizers for tobacco being sold. These
fertilizers range in analysis from
8-4-5 to 12-3-5. Personally I pre¬
fer a fertilizer containing 8 to 10 per
cent available phosphoric acid, 4 per
cent ammonia and 5 to 6 per cent pot¬
The most general rate of applica¬
tion is 1,000 pounds per acre, but the
use of larger quantities has been
found highly profitable, I will state
now, I do not believe the liberal use
of fertilizer, of itself, causes tobacco
not to ripen. It is my opinion that
these crops which grow rough and
burn before they ripen, and which
cure into a dark, chaffy, woody and
low grade tobacco, are caused direct¬
ly, in the majority of cases, by the
presence in the soil of nematodes
which, as explained last week, cause
the roots of the plant to disease.
Other highly contributing factors to
this kind of crop of tobacco are im¬
proper cultivation and late planting.

out of fertilizer. Last year I heard of
many crops which were planted late
due to late ordering of fertilizer. This
late ordering congests the fertilizer
manufacturing plants, causing them
to be delayed in filling orders, and this
year if the railroads are called upon
to haul in about six weeks time the
fertilizers which should be ordered
out during January, February, March
and April there may be more delay
in getting fertilizers to the farm.
Therefore, ORDER THE FERTILIZ¬

WASHINGTON.—Farm relief leg¬

Direct government control of grain
and other products was proposed in
a bill introduced in the senate by Sen¬

by Representative Little, Democrat,
Kansas. Though dissimilar, the mea¬

farmer of violent price fluctuations
and to insure sale of surplus crops.
Senator’s Frazier’s bill would ap¬
propriate $200,000,000 to create a fed¬
eral marketing board to handle corn,
wheat and cotton. Representative
Little's proposal seeks to set aside
