Ash To Halt Transfer For money was cut off after a reeval- uation of the state's educational program was made in the wake of the Supreme Court decision.

All Good Reasons An ~ppeal Was made last Thurs day in Washington, D. C. to the United States District Court by the minority trustees of Storer Col ]ege at Harpers Ferry. asking the Court to halt transfer of the Ne- gro institution's assets to another college. On January 10 at a meeting of trustees of the college held at .the college a majority of the ,trustees voted to discontinue any future operational educational activities at the college and to negotiate with officials of Alderson-Broad- dus College, a Baptist Church school for merger with that instit- ution. Last week the minority trustees asked the District Court to block transfer of the 91-year-old school assets to the Alderson Broaddus College located at Philli~i, W. Va, The minority group said the A. M.E. Zion Church has offered to continue operating ~)torer College on a non-segregrated basis and ~hat transfer of the colleges assets will not be ~n .the best interest of the college.

Winchester Bull Sale The bull sale held in Winches- ter, Friday, February 13 was a very active event. It did seem that it was a lucky day for those that had bulls for sale. I attended the sale and saw ap- proximately 55 of the bulls sold. These 55 bulls averaged $550.00 head. The comments heard at the sale were that good bulls are scarce. One breeder started that he had sold all of his bulls in a sou- them state. This particular breed er usually has a large number of bulls for sale. The indications are that if you to buy a good bull this spring weigh the milk from two milkings and take the samples. The super- visor ~picks up the milk samples and weight and runs the butterfat test. In weigh ~: day a month pro- gram there is no butterfat test made. The owner weighs the milk from each cow morning and night on the 15 of each month. The weights herd buterfat test price received for milk and Iced costs for the month are entered on a form sup plied to the dairyman. This infor marion is mailed to central office for summary. Information received from any of these systems will help you pick he may be heard to find and the out the good producer, poor pro- price may be up.

Demonstrational Sales were as: follows: Calves that graded fancy, $121.00. Calves that graded choice $105.00. Calves that graded good $97.00. Calves that graded Medium $86.00. Calves that graded plain $84.00. These prices are for steer calves. You can see there was a differ- ence of $21.00 per head between the average price of a choice calf and the average .price of a plain calf. You will note there is a diff erence of $11.00 between :the price of the good and ,the medium calf. Just suppose you would have 50 calves for sale and by purchasing a good quality bull you could in- crease .the grade from medium to choice. This would mean an extra income of $50.00 on 50 .calves. Cattle Lice Judging by comments and re- marks made by farmers recently must be quite a few cattle Jefferson County that are inr fested with cattle lice: The ques-' tion in the minds of most of these people is what shall I do. Probab= ly the best thing is to pick a mild sunny day like some of the ones we have been having and spray the cattle with 50% water disper- sable methoxychlor at the rate of 17 pounds in 100 gallons of water. Spray each animal thoroug~hly. ILL By Miss Dorothy Lake w. s. c. s. Meeting , The members of .the W. S. C. S.
