THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE rnotograpn Dy James L. Wilson UNITED STATES AND AFRICA MEET ON A MISSION-SCHOOL FARM In the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan sleek, well-fed camels draw an American wagon filled with alfalfa to Khartoum, to be sold for feed at the same price as wheat straw. This crop is mowed every 21 days the year round, and the Iowa grower in charge at the time of the author's visit sold about three tons an acre, green weight, each cutting. Photograph from Will F. Taylor BAUCHI PLATEAU HORSEMEN OF NIGERIA HAVE PET MOUNTS The cost of a pony varies from the equivalent of $2.50 to $5. Most households possess one, which they treat more or less as an American pampers a dog. The animal, ridden without bridle or saddle and guided by a halter rope only, goes to the farm with its owner and grazes while he works.
