Wln9ton-Salem, Mar. 23.?That there (
is no conflict between the War Savings
Campaign and the Third Liberty Loan
Campaign is the text of a letter that
Colonel F. H. Fries, State Director ot
"War Savings, is sending his one hun
dred gr more county chairmen and
otherJfrar Savings workers. He says j
r lo '
"Only the best of feeling shold pre, !

Colonel Fries says that the War
Savings and the Liberty Loan cam
paigns are not rivals; to make them1,
rivals will be to hinder the war plan
of the nation. On the other hand, he
says that they are two forms of the
same financial operation of the Gov
ernment andare intended to supple,
ment each other. "The Liberty Loan
Campaign Is necessarily of short du- i
ration and primarily designed toT
reach t^ose who have ample funds to [
buy bonds, while the *^V'ar Savings^

will Franklin county be a
slacker county this year.
The government is now conducting
a food increase campaign, the like ot
which was never before undertaken.
Every man, woman and child in the
United States is urged to do all in
their power to increase our food sup
ply. But the farmers must bear the
burden, and the appeal is dlrectedtto
Whether thewar ends this year or
not, there will be a great demand for
all food and feed crops and for all
kinds of livestock.
It is imperative that the south pro
flM| falf. Mft fnnfl Mi g mrnlna ihii
year, were it possible to secure the
usual supplies that are shipped into
the south, the transportation situation
would prohlbitsuch a courso.
But these supplies can't be bought.
Share crops and an increased demand
?a demand that must be answered?
makes it impossible for us to buy in
the usual quantities.
What can we do?
We must raise substitutes at home.
It is too late to raise wheat this
year, but sweet potatoes are a good
substitute. It is too late to save last
years crop of potatoes, but is time to
think of means to insure next years
It is time to think of peas, soy beans
and velvet beans. There should be
planted one of these three in every
corn row this summer. Plant your
corn as early as possible, "lay by" as
early as possible and plant peas or
beans in every row. It will mean lots
of food and feed and a profit, too.
It is beyond human imagination to
conceive of thef food produced in war
gardens last year. Everyone that can
and does not have a year round gar
den is not doing his part to conserve
and produce food.
Any ordinary pair of horses or
mules will next Spring probably sell
for $500. And because of this situa.
tion, every mare in Franklin County
should be bred this. year. . ,1: -
Indications point towards higher
priced pork. Last year the United
States butchered 204,000 fewer hogs
than In 1916 but exported 6,000,000
more pounds of hog products. At
this rate thetre is bound to be a short
Conditions aro- practically the
same for the sheep industry and beef
industry. High prices for beef and
high priced feeds have turned many
milk cows into beef. The milk cow
is one of the best sources of fats for
home consumption and is a thing that
ever^ family should have.
Poultry ihoutd receive special at
tention at this time. Eggs are one of
the cheapest foods. Were they pro
duced in proper quantities there would
be released for export a much larger
amount of hog product*.
SWEET POTATO -PLANT OUTLOOK
It is reported that potato growers
in eastern Virginia are buying several
thousand bushels from Delaware and
New Jersey shippers. The shortage
in Virginia is acute. ^
; In eastern North Carolina, where
normally a large supply is~helcl-Tor
shipment, dealers are endeavoring to
buy from other sections.
In Georgia there is a small surplus
In tlio- southwestern part. Short" else
where. in Florida there is^ a short

?Those lucky enough to have seed
potatoes-should - be very -eareful~w4th_
them. Use every precaution to pre
vent rotting before and after planting
Take care not to lose plants by frost
and later by draught.
