Mere Egg Is
While the production of eggs is
of course the most important thing
it is also very important that the
eggs receive proper care, warns
R. S. Dearstyne, head of the poul

Pointing out that when freshly
laid eggs are almost invariably of
high quality, Dearstyne said this
quality is very rapidly reduced un
less proper and constant care is
given the eggs.
The first aim of the producer
should be too keep his eggs clean.
Every handling of the eggs after
they are laid tends to reduce qual
ity. In order to secure clean eggs,
the nests must be kept clean. Eggs
should be gathered in wire baskets i
three to five times a day.
It is best to let the eggs set over
night in these wire baskets for bet

it is necessary to pack in cases

Scientist Makes Soils
Map Of 4 Farms Here
BY JOHN 8. SMITH
Work Halt OoHtrnttnU
The soil scientist* of the Soil
Conservation Service was in Cher
okee County (or three days last
week and made soils maps of four
farms in the Suit Section of the
county and one in the Peach tree
These farms belong 'to farmers
who siigned application for as
sistance from Cherokee County
Soil Conservation District some
time ago. There are a number of
farms remaining to be soils-map
ped and new applications are be
ing received weekly.
The county office of the ASC
(Lloyd Kisselburg) has turned
over for approval by the Soil Con
servation Service a number of re- J
quests for tile drainage assistance.
The government through the ASC
gives farmers financial assistance
in installing tile drainage in wet
areas of their farms. In order to
qualify for this assistance, the
farmer must apply to the County
Committee of the ASC.
The committee tentatively ap
proves the request and turns it
over tc the Soil Conservation Ser
vice technician who makes an on
site inspection to determine the
need and practicability of the
drainage. If tile drainage is found
necessary and practical, the tech
nician will assist the iarmer in
locating the ditches an din estab
lishing proper grade for them. ;
When installation is complete the
practice is certified to the ASC (
committee by the SCS technician
for payment. It is necessary for
the farmer to arrange for the ditch
ing and for the purchase of the
necessary tile, but the government. !
through the ASC, refunds the farm
rer part of the cost of the operation.
The rate of assistance varies with
the size of the tile used. For six

Manure In Pasture
You can probably hold down
damage to pastures by June beetle
al-JT pjyq wk fg mb cv s hrdlnloa
grubs quits a bit by avoiding ex
cessive amount of barnyard man
ure when fertilising.
Insect specialist J. R. Dogger of
the North Carolina Experiment 1
Station has noticed that pastures
damaned the worst by June beet
le grufae also had been most heav
ily manured .Over-stocking with
too many animals per acre also
results in excessive manure.
For some reason, manure seems
to attract the beetles when they're '
flying in June and July. They pick
the heaviest manured fields and
lay their eggs there. Then grubs
develope and do their damage un
derground for the rest of the sum- '
Most farmers do not notice the
damage until late summer and it's
faU before they decide to treat I
with chemicals to kill the grubs- 1
after the damage is done. Thus, !
most farmers do not get their i
money's worth from treating . i
The Ideal time to apply chemic- '
als is before seeding. This is es
pecially true if you're reseedlng
an old pasture that's been ruined
by June beetle grub before. Five
to six pounds of chlordane in dust
or granular form is recommended
now In North Carolina. Other long
lasting, chlorinated hydrocarbon*
have also given good results.
For establishea pastures, the
earlier you discover grub injury,
the better off you are In controll
ing it. You're also farther ahead
to put on a long-lasting chemical
like chlordane. It takes about 45
days to kill all the grubs it's going
to kill. But chlordane'stays in the
soil much longer and may prevent
damage the next year too.
Prevention is best though-avold

Tvo be honest ? there are some bumps
which nothing will level out completely.
\et even the real rough ones turn out a lot
smoother when you're in a 1955 Buick.
And that's not just our say-so. New owners
of these new beauties keep telling us that.
So you lhay wonder? how come? What's dif
ferent about the Buick ride that makes it
Evch a marvel? The answer is? plenty.
Most cars have coil springs on front wheels
only. Buick has them all around ? and this .
year they're newly calibrated for even
deeper smothering of jounce and jar. So
here your ride is balanced, buoyant, level,
Most cars drive through the rear springs.
Buick drives through a torque-tube that
takes up all driving thrust, wipes out
rear- wheel wiggle and wag, steadies your
going to a sure and solid track.
