Paul Johnson, of Noble is the cham-
pion pig raiser in the Cleveland County
Boy's Pig Club.
He took the first premium with a Po-
land-China gilt at the state fair in Okla-
homa City and Muskogee. He sold the
pig to a Mr. Scudder at Muskogee for
His premiums at Oklahoma City
amounted to $32.50 and at Muskogee
$22.00, making a total of $129.50. The
cost of pig and maintenance amounted
to $41.09; net profit $88.41.
Paul purchased the pig last spring for
$22.50 and it weighed 50 pounds. On
the day of sale it weighed 300 pounds.
Paul Johnson raised the pig in the town
of Noble at a total cost of $18.59 for
feed and labor.
The current issue of the Oklahoma
Farmer-Stockman contains a write-up
and a picture of Paul and his pig. What
Paul Johnson of Noble has done thi<
year on his lot in Noble should be an
incentive to any boy who possesses en-
ergy and industry. Paul Johnson
worked under the instruction of Coun
ty Agent James Lawrence.
Burglar at Needmore
A Mr. Green telephoned City Mar-
shal Sanderson this afternoon to come
out to Needmore, southeast, of Noble—
that he had captured a burglar. Deputy
Sheriff Clay left for Needmore to bring
him in. No particulars of the affair
could be learned.
High school boys and girls in many
parts of Oklahoma are aiding the na-
tion in the present labor shortage by
picking cotton in the fields near town,
according to reports from county coun-
cils of defense. The shortage of labor
of all kinds had made it imperative that
some extraordinary measures be taken.
Every man, woman and child must be
made to realize that that person is not
a good citizen who does ont spend hi>>
or her time in productive labor.
Cities in Oklahoma are cleaning their
streets of the "floating population"
