LIVE OAK, FLA. Mr. S. H. Harrell, a well known and successful
local farmer who grows 15-20 acres of sugar cane for syrup each year, says he
has tried several of the improved varieties including Co 290, CP 29/116, and
Fla. 31/762 and has found all of them far superior to other varieties common-
ly grown by Suwannee County farmers. In a recent interview he stated his ex-
perience has been that Co 290 is a good syrup cane, but requires more labor
to harvest, does not come to as good stand when planted, does not stubble as
well, and is more subject to cold damage than either CP 29/116 or Fla.31/762.
Furthermore, that Fla, 31/762 is the beat stubbier of the three, probably
produces a slightly higher yield, suffers less from cold damage than Co 290,
but is somewhat more difficult to harvest than CP 29/116. Mr. Hirrell says
he prefers the CP 29/116 because it is so easily handled in the field, is a
good stubbier, and produces a high yield of quality syrup.

OCALA, FLA. Final arrangements are being perfected for the South-
eastern Fat Stock Show & Sale to be held here February 23-25, according to
Horace L. Smith, Secretary of Iarion County Chamber of Commerce. The cattle
will be entered and classified on Wednesday the 23rd, judging by prof. L. V.
Starkey of Clemson College will take place on Thursday the 24th, and sale of
the cattle will start at 10 o'clock Friday morning the 25th. Entries to date
by feeders, 4-H Club and FFA members have been quite gratifying, and assure
another "Jam-up* good show of quality cattle.

WINTER HAVEN, FLA. A process has been worked out by G. N. pulley
of the Bureau of Agricultural Und Industrial Chemistry, and E. L. Moore and
C. Do Atkins of the Florida Citrus Commission for making crude citrus pectin
from grapefruit cannery waste at low processing cost, according to recent
announcement of the USDA. The announcement says: "The crude pectin, or re-
fined pomace, is produced by leaching properly treated grapefruit pool with
water and then drying and gridding the leached pool. Grapefruit cannery res-
idue contains from 2 1/2 to 4 per cent of pectin. During the 1942-43 season
Florida canneries processed more than 17 1/2 million boxes of grapefruit
yielding more than 322,000 tons of peel and pulp. Less than 60 per cent of
this waste was used commercially, the balance being hauled and dumped on pas-
tures, groves, and wasteland. This is the source of the raw material that can
now be used for making either crude or pure pectin. Tho manufacture of puro
pectin requires elaborate and specialized equipment. But the refined pomcee
which may ae used by jam and jelly makers as a source of pectin may be made
in equipment most of which is already available."

"I haven't much faith with the man who complains
Of the work he is chosen to do.
He's lazy or else he's deficient in brains
And may be a hypocrite, too;
Hoes likely to cheat and he's. likely to rob-
Away with the man who finds fault with his job."

"But givw me the man with the sun in his face
And the shadows all dancing behind,
Who can meet his reverses with calmness and grace
And.never forget to be kind,
For whether he's wielding a scepter or swab,
I have faith in the man who's in love with his job'.
