1 195 Edgewood Mar 23rd 1918 634th meeting
Nearly every member and nearly as many guests assembled at Edgewood Mar 23rd 1918 for the 634th Enterprise Club meeting . R. R. Moore and Wm M. [Canbry?] were unable to come while the following were among the welcomed outsiders ---- T . Janney Brown of Washington Mr Wilson of Virginia , Mortimer O. Stabler " from Montgomery" and others including R.H. Miller, Alban G . Thomas, Samuel S. Bond,&W m F. Thomas . The Secy . was unable to participate in the walk of inspection and E . Clifton Thomas was asked to take notes . These walks are especially interesting here for we can behold from year to year the things which a city farmer with plenty of where-with-all puts over on us urban farmers with plenty of brains. The handsome pile of sawed wood at the wood pile was
the an indication of the thriftiness always to be found here . A number of brood sows with pigs were fully admired while a red sow was put thru some stunts as a trained animal. When our host finally suceeds in geting her to talk her first inteligible grunt will be alfalfa and the second Teddy . Sheep and lambs were also handsome to look at ,some of the later ready for market . A mare with her tenth foal was led out for inspection ; no horse-race suicide here. A shingle barn roof which has been in sevice since 1866 showed how often the old ways and methods are superior to the new . After a delicious shad supper the following topics were discus[?] . M : J. Stabler was advised to apply for potatos a dressing of a fertilizer mixture in the proportion
of 200 lbs of [?] to 800 of rock . to [?] alfalfa sod which has been manuered . He is also advised to use a disc clover seed drill .
W m F. Thomas has 15 or 20 bus of seed rye for sale .
Samuel Bond brought up hte question of turnout chickens pasturing on fields . This is a problem as much unsolved as when our Enterprising Club started . Some of our members use the shot gun . Very effective with the chickens but hard on the good will .
The question of the justification of the continuation of the present fixt price for wheat was brought up by Chas.E.Bond and discust at length . Most thought that $ 2 50 per bushel would be a most just price for the 1918 crop especially in view of the fact that farmers do not really get the maximum fixt price at all .
Frederick Stabler is advised to sow [rape?] in narrow rows for [?] pasture .
B . H. Miller is advised not to sow Soudan grass .
Opinion was divided whether Wm W. Moore should purchase a hayloader or a side delivery rake this year . Practically all would not get both now .
T. Janney Brown is told that wheat generally should not be sown later than the last of October .
geo .A . Wilson was advised to make a rubber out of planks 3 x 6 or 3 x 8 overlapping them.
