Jack will graduate in June, 1939, but now, in addition to his 2 acres of sandy loam soil, he owns four cattle, four horses, seven hogs, and 25 hens. He also has done work, with dairy cows, bees, corn, legumes, potatoes, cane and cotton. He has carried on an improvement project in shrubbery planting about the home. Because of frequent illness of his father, young Seay has had a good share of the responsibility of the-home place in addition to management of his own tract.
