LETTER OF THE
TO START CHECKING "COM
i PLIAXCE" FARMERS—SOME
INFORMATION ABOUT AL
| We hope to stait checking
compliance on farms that have
signed up with the soil Conser
vation Program in the pastern
part of the county within a very
sshort time. It has been some
time sine the engineers complet
ed the scale check work and the
j Washington office shculd have
the enlarged pictures ready fo'
the local supervisors at a" early
date. The scale check work for
the area west of a No'th and
South line through Danbury and
south of Francisco will be com
pleted by Mr. Fairc'oth, Engineer
from the Extension Department,
today. It will piobably be thr"e
weeks or more before the enlarge
ments for this ai a will be avail
able for UJC in checking com
pliaueg by the local supervisors.
When the compliance work gets
under way, each farmer will be
| notified a day or so before the
I local supervisor is to visit hi.
ifarm so that he may be expecting
the supervisor and be in a bett' r
position to offer his assistance in
checking the farm. If this done
lit will materially speed up th
work and more satisfactory job 1
can be done.
Locust Trees Damaged.
Upon traveling through the
I northern part of the county, it
appears that practically all of
jthe black locust are being attack
ied by an insect which causes the
foliage to turn brown. According
'to Dr. Z. P. Mecalf, of the) De
partment of Zoology at N. C.
State College, the insect causing
this is known as the Locust Leaf
Miner. Dr. Metclaf states that
adu't lives over winter, ap
pearing as soon as the leaves are
| fully developed in the spring. The
grubs live between the surface o'
J the leaves, eating out the sub
stances. This insect has also been
noticed working on elm shade
trees. The only remedy that can
be used successfully, if control i 3
is to spray the leaves in
' spring before eggs hatch.
Borax Cures Yellow Disease Of
(Field Tests by L. G. Willis.)
Alfalfa growers over North
; Carolina have been reporting a
condition oi their crop in
which the plant leaves turn yel
low in mid-summer.
Applications of 5 to 10 pounds
of ordinary borax per ace will
remedy the trouble, said L. G.
Willis, soil chemist of the Agri
cultural Experiment Station.
After more than a year's study
of the problem, Willis said the
disease is due to a deficiency in
the soil, and the trouble has been
*ound to increase year by year.

| Urge for the pocket. ,
One of the oldest men in th -
number of years service with the
company is Mr. W. M Fulp. of
Walnut Cove, North Carolina.
Bill wrote his first policy for
the Security Life and Trust Com
pany in 1920 —very shortly after
the company organized. It was
the first life insurance pol'icy he
had ever sold, and he became so
enthusiastic over the possibilities
that is was not long before lie
was selling life insurance full
I Bill work d hard and progress
ed so rapidy that he was soon
appointed General Agent for
Stokes county. Bad crops, banx
failures, an almost bankrupt com
munity and physical impairment
did not prevent him from rolling
in a substantial volume of busi
ness and qualifying for member
ship in the Security Club each
year. Bil; Fulp'ss sweet?.* is an
example of what can be acviu
plished und%.r handicaps. He is
a" inspiration to the youngc"
men connected with the company.
When it comes to fishing > Bill
has few equals He knows when
and how to pull in his. line, as
almost invariably there's a nice
fish on the end of it. With the
same insight he knows just when
and how to get his prospects to
sign on the drttt'd line. Not
only does Bill fish for his own
pleasure, but for others as well.
He in noted for his famous fish
frys which are thoroughly enjoy
ed by both the home office staff
and practically everybody in th.
More power to you Bill and
land may you have many more
years of success!
