The four bnildings contained the

the road was leased to the old Rich

later to the Southern. Thev are of
massive construction and the loas on

at that time were the largest brick

The fire is reported to have started

Black Walnut Timber Needed.
The Agricultural Extensfcm Ser
vice is going on a hant in the
State for a supply of black walnut
which is one of the most valuable
timbers for the manufacture of air
plane prope'lers and gnn stocks.
Those farmers Of the State who
have black walnut timber are urg
ed to write to the Farm Forestry
Division of the Extension Service,
giving the quality, size and Quan
tity of this timber.
The War Department, the Forest
ry Department of the Government
and all the States and Boy Scouts,
have all joined to find the black
walnut timber. It is much needed,
and very valuable in th 9 prosecu
tion of the war.
It can no longer be found in
abundance, must oe culled, often
as single trees from mixed hard
wood forest growths. Individual
trees may be found as far east as
Connecticut, northward in New York
to and beyond the Canadian line,
southward almost to the Gulf of
Mexico, and westward far into the
Prairie States. The Ohio ana Mis
sissippi Valley States, the Middle
Atlantic States, and the Southern
Appalachian region, however, are
expected to furnish the bulk of the
Much of the available back wal
nut is in farmers' woodlands. Trees
from 12 inches in diameter up can
be utilized. A good market awaits
this clas of timber. The farmers
of North Carolina can thus help

War Department's construction pro
