Dr. Fitzgerald recalls that by the time he was 12 years old he had begun to help his father actively on their farm. Not only did he help with chores but also learned how to handle livestock and machinery. In later years, when he went away to school, he returned each summer vacation to help out with the farm work.

6 State Holds Slim Margin In Corn War Close to the finish line in the 1950 "Corn War" with North Carolina, Virginia held a percentage lead of better than three points, it was reported last month by Henry M. Taylor, Federal-State crop statistician. A November crop forecast made by the U.S. Department of Agriculture gave Virginia an average yield per acre of 48.5 bushels of corn this year, as compared with 37 bushels per acre for North Carolina. The corn war is being fought on the basis of percentage of increase in yields per acre over the base period, 1940-49. Production figures for the base period were 32.8 bushels per acre for Virginia; 25.6 bushels per acre for the Tar Heel State.

In total bushels and acres this year the figures for the two friendly rivals in the corn contest are: Virginia, 54,174,000 bushels, produced on 1,11...

4 Wool Growers Are Told Better American Living Depends on Free Economy American progress toward better living requires the incentives of economic freedom, Porter M. Jarvis, executive vice president of Swift & Company, told the National Wool Growers Association in convention last month. "Wars, mobilization periods and temporary economic disruptions may halt, for a short time, our progress towards the destination of better living," Jarvis said, "but we should not further reduce the speed America is making towards our goal by accepting a philosophy that curbs incentives to grow and progress. "Our ability to stay on the road to better living is threatened by a phony philosophy quite different from the ideals and attitudes that sparked the building of our America," he said. He referred to "a willingness to let some one else discharge our responsibilities as citizens in our home communities — actually let others plan a big part of our lives." This, he said, "can sap the enthus...
