sot The Hew*, Frederick, Md« Monday, Novemfew H, 185 Iff IF. Shermantine Retires From Dairy Group BALTIMORE, Nov. 18 -- The friendly, portly man in neat gray suit, eyes shining behind metal- rimmed glasses, voice booming in ' customary bass, reached across his desk and with steady hand poured his visitor a drink--of milk. It was the most natural thing in the world, for the host was Dr. R. W. Shermantine. The doctor has the combined title of secretary- treasurer-manager of the Maryland Co-Operative Milk Producers, Inc.. the iarmer group of surrounding counties which supplies Baltimore with most of its milk. On Saturday, a month after his seventy-fifth birthday, he will quit his official duties and retire to his farm near Sparks. Retirement will not mean inactivity. Running a place with 100 milk cows and much other livestock can occupy the time of a most industrious farmer, something the doctor has been for many vearij, adding in 1938 the post of chief bargainer for the dairy group. One Vacation In Years "Have had only one vacation in Grange News Braddock Thirteen members and tw guests attended the Tuesday meet ing with Master J. Thomas Sum mers presiding. The group sang "The DeaV Old Farm" and a re solution was passed relative lo opening welfare rolls to the public The roads committee had rharg of the program, which included Song. "Smile , Smile, Smile"; read ing, "Science in Agriculture", Mis: Hazel Holter; a talk on road work by County Commissioner Rober Rhoderlck, song. "Work for the Night is Coming". Refreshments were served. Officers will be elected at the November 27 meeting j- ears --ten days in Bermuda," he said. "But an active man, with zest for work, gets a vacation every day. Some people never find that out." The doctor never had,to tumble out of bed and milk a herd of cattle early in the morning, but he knows that farm work is 'hard and complicated, and sometimes wfell- rewarding. Mostly he looks on the bright side. Former Country Doctor Dr. Shermantine is * country physician, who for most of his practicing years also ran a farm, and in 1938 relinquished his practice when he took the present job. He was born in California (now called Great Mills', St. Mary? county, on October 27,. 1876, the son of John A. B. Shermantine. a tobacco farmer He knew all about that type of farming as a boy, but had the urge to be a physician. He studied at Maryland Medical College (long since a part of Univer- siiv of Maryland), graduating in 1903. His Early Practice He first practiced in the coal mining country around Bramwe.ll and Pocohontas. Va., married Miss Effie Marie Peery of Tazewcll, Va,. in 1904. returned to his native county briefly, and then took up practice in the Glencoe-Sparks district of Baltimore county. Many of the babies he delivered are members of his association today "I delivered sound babies of those fine country folk." he sayi "They became sound farmers " From 1915 until 1918, Dr. Shermantine was on the board of Franklin Square Hospital, and he still maintains his interest in medical societies. In the same years his interest m agricultural pursuits occupied his time, too. He was a charter member, with 1. Wallace Heaps, of the Maryland State Dairymen's Association in 1918. a director in 1023. its president in 1P34 and president of the same group reorennired under its present name in 1935. Three years later, on the death of Mr Heaps, he succeeded to the highly paid job as chief operations official. "When will the price of milk go down?" he was asked. He clamped down on his cigar-he never smokes, just chews It meditatively-"I'll answer that question with another question,' 1 he said. "Young fellows enter this life with a halter about their necks, the way Ihc Government is run now. They've known nothing but socialism with a diminishing dollar When will milk prices go down'. 1 Tell me. when will shoes, and steel, and everything else one buys go down? "What am I Going to do now? Next week I'll return to mv first connection with the association-that of milk shipper. And at the end of every month. I'll be complaining that my milk check isn't big enough!" Glade Valley Granjt* Glade Valley Grange held its regular meeting on Tuesday with Worthy Master Edgar Zimmerman presiding. The meeting opened b singing "Smile. Smile, Smile." Pauline Kehne, home economics chairman, announced the stale cookie contest open to any members which .will be held at the State meeting on December 4, in the Francis Scott Key Hotel in Frederick. The Pomona cookie contest was held November 6. at Walkersville Community Hall along with the conferring of the fifth de gree. Louise Zimmerman, a member from the Grange was announced first prize winner in the drop cookie class. ' Members wore invited lo attend the square dance at Frederick High School on November 16, and also at Lisbon High School on November 23. with Ebn and Ely callers, The resolution relative to public welfare rolls was adopted by the Grange. Contributions were Riven to the Children's Aid Society and Grange Endowment Fund. The election of officers for the coming year was held with the following elected: Master. Edgar Zimmerman, overseer, Edgar VanFos- ssn. Jr.; lecturer, Nena Jamison; steward, Arthur Graham; assistant steward, Ralph D. Zimmerman; chaplain. Harry Remsberc, treasurer, Charles Hoke; secretary, Mary Louise Remsbetg: gatekeeper. Clyde Crum: Crres. Barbara Enves; Flora, Martha Frantz; Pomona. Cathryn Eaves: lady assistant steward, Shirley Graham; home economics chairman, Mary Zimmerman: executive committee, Bruce Crum. Refreshments were served. The next meeting will be on November 27. at the Walkersville Fire Hall at 8 p. m. Livestock Show Sales Reached $184,281 Sales at the Eaylern National Kenland Clover Tops In Central States And South Kenland Clover Kxcels In Soil Building. Show at Timonium this year to Livestock amounted according to figures released today by the livestock coimui.sMon merchant"; who handled the Sales. John Cooper, vice pro.sidenl f the firm (Allen C. Driver, Inc.), said 369 head of cntilo were sold for an aveiage price of 4U 7fi cents a pound. The avpinge weight of each animal was 1.033 pounds. Top price was bronchi by the grand champion vtcer, for which .$2.60 n pound was paid. The reserve champion was sold for 75 cents a pound. The 110 lambs sold d u r i n g the show, w h i c h ended Thursday, averaged R5 pounds in weight and bronchi an average price of 3ii 05 cents a pound. The grand champion's price was $1 a pound A price of $1.52 a pound was paid for the grand champion hog. The average weight of the 337 hogs sold was 223 pounds, for which an average price of 23.65 cents a pound was paid. Since the introduction of red clover from Europe, no strain or variety of this crop has created such a sensation over so large an area of the United States as has Kenland red clover. Developed H-imarily for use in that part of he clover belt where southern anthracnose is prevalent, and frequently destructive, it not only has shown outstanding disease resistance in that area but has also proved generally adapted over a. arge number of states consider- bly beyond the area where southern anthracnose is serious. When subjected to heavy artificial inoculation with southern an- hracnose. more than twice as many Kenland plants survived as of any other variety. In addition o superior yielding ability. Kcn- and has a longer life than common red clover in many locations, and is a good seed producer. It was developed by Kentucky and he U. S. D. A. from seven olri uperior farm strains grown in the outhern part of the red clover ielt Kenland is recommended In 29 tales, 'though its main area of dnption centers in the Red Cloer Belt of Kentucky, Virginia, laryland, Delaware, New Jersey, outhern Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois rea. Kenland averaged 10 per cont nore forage than the best of n u m - erous other clover strains in 39 tests over a five-year period, in this area. At some locations. Kenland yielded over 40 per cent more t h a n the good standard strain used for comparison. In terms of soil improvement, Kenland's increased yielding ability means additional nitrogen and organic matter production of benefit to corn and other crops grown in the crop rotation. The tops and roots of Kenland with a 40 per cent hay yield advantage would contain 35 to 45 pounds more nitrogen to the acre than ordinary clover. The soil building advantage alone is often worth the entire seed cost to users of Kenland. The 29 states now recommending KcnJand estimate an annual demand JCor 15,000,000 pounds of seed as soon as it is available. Sufficient foundation stock seed is expected by the end of this year (195D which, if used efficiently, will permit a 15,000.000-pound production of certified seed by 1953. Although certified seed production of Kenland in 3950 was only a third of a million pounds, the 1951 production should be much larger-possibly pounds. t h a t by 1954 or 1955 the production of certified Kenland clover seed could exceed 15,000,000 pounds. The reports from Kenland red clover ore not just spasmodic report 1 ? here and there, but represent a development and testing period of over 10 years. No adverse reports hax'e been received except from the northern states, where northern anthracnose is prevalent. It has no resistance to this north- em disease, so there is danger when used where it is prevalent. Mm Russell A. Dudrow.

A majority seemingly feels that he will. Six persons interviewed very much at random gave the following answers to the question: "Do you think General Dwight D. Eisenhower will become a candidate fnr President of the United States? The answers: Harvey H. Carmack, 120 East Seventh street: "Yes, I think that he will and. furthermore I hope that he will." Lionel Burras, 727 Motter avenue: "Yes, I think he will." Clayton Clarke, Seattle, Washington: "Yes, I kind of think that he will." James Comunale. Pittsburgh. Pa."I do not think that he will." J. H. Conrad. Walkersville: "I do not think that he will and feel that he would be foolish to do so. He would have everything to lose and nothing to gain by doing so: at present he is at the fop of the heap and could not possibly get any higher." I. L. Hankey. Frederick: "My opinions are about the same as Mr Conrnd's." SWINE BREEDERS TO MEET The annual dinner and meeting of the Maryland Hampshire Breeders' Association will be held at Hardman's Inn, near Baltimore, (his evening. Office s will be elected and talks will be made by Dr. Gordon M. Cairns and Dr. Foster of the University of Maryland. None of Greenland's 10,000 to 15,000 icebergs succeeded this year in reaching the crowded shipping Janes between North America and Europe. SLUSH FUN--As. most of the center of the nation was smothered under a record blanket of snow, traffic was brought almost to a halt in scores of cities stretching from the Great Lakes all the way to Oklahoma. Here, policemen and a building doorman, extreme left and right background, help women crossing Chicago's Michigan Avenue buck a vicious wind. The Windy City's share of the storm in estimated 16,500,000 tons of snow--at last reports was rapidly turning to ankles-deep slush. Ladino Clover Most Valuable The name "Ladino clover" has :ome to be synonymous with supe- lor quality in pasture legumes. In production, palatability, high percentage of proteins, rnineials and /itamins, low percentage of fiber, ow seed requirements per acre, ong productive life, nitrogen fixa- ion, usefulness for pasture, silage, nd hay, compatability in the field vith all pasture grasses and other efiumes under intelligent management, quick recovery after drought, razing or cutting, and in every ther way over the large area to /hich it is adapted, Ladino clover s equal or superior to any other jasture legume. The phenomenal extension of adino clover across the continent rom the valleys of Oregon and California east to the New England nd the North Atlantic States, and rom Minnesota, New York, and Canada on the* north, to Te.xa?. lOuisiana, and Georgia on the outh, gives ample evidence of its apid rise in popularity, which ivals the advance of corn hybrids Ladino clover is rapidly becom- ng the foundation of an intensive rassland agriculture over a large art of the United States Its cul- ure and soil requirements in some aspects are more exacting than lose of common white elover, and .s seed habits are not so good, but ;s general adaptation and its many mportant characteristics give it a ominant position as a past tire rop. Its low fiber content make? t especially valuable for hons -and oultry. Although primarily a grazing crop, Ladino clover is being used also for hay and silage, particularly in combinations with grasses and other legumes, and also as a cover crop. Ladino clover is a large type of white clover with the same general habits of growth as the common perennial spreading by creeping, fleshy stems that root at the nodes. Depending "upon the favorableness of the soil, climate, and management, the leaves, stems, and flower heads of Ladino clover grow from 3 to 5 times as large as those of the low growing type found in our closely-grazed pastures. Ladino clover has about the same soil and climatic requirements as ordinary white clover. While it may suffer some injury from the cold winters in the northernmost states and in some parts of Canada, it usually recovers if given proper fertilization, proper grazing or cutting management, and compatible grass association. Ladino clover may be sown alone or with grasses and other legumes, with or without a companion grain crop. When sown alone, one or two pounds of seed, or at most three pounds per acre is adequate, provided the seedbed has been thoroughly prepared and the sowing properly done. Heavier rates of sowing are often recommended, but are not necesary for most purposes. If sown m combination \\ith other legumes or grasses, one- half pound per acre will usually give a good stand of Ladino, but one pound is more often recommended. Mixtures of grasses with Ladino clover have been very satisfactory. In fact, except for seed production a_nd specialized grazing it should' b« sown wltn one w mflft fr*i and perhaps another leguma. Thl Ladino serves to increase ability, nutritive value and tot yield of forage Like alfalfa and many «the legumes, the h i g h productio potentiality of Ladino clover ind: cates that it requires large quant ties of available mineral plant trieats. The addition of substantit quantities of phosphates, calciur and potash is necessary for factory plant growth. The productive life of a field Ladino clover and grass may rangl from three to seven years, depena ing upon the fertilization and ma agement practices, diseases, an| the rate of encroachment of Ken tucky bluegrass from either volu tary stands or seeding. For advice as to methods of cu ttire and fertilization and manage ment to obtain best results unde your local conditions, consult yojj seed supplier, county agent, state agricultural experiment tion. Since the seed is indistin guishable from common whit clover and practically all seedme handle certified seed. It is desii able that certified seed be used. ries Md] :tiSI egi!
