Crops Allowed On Rented Acres
Many tanners have asked ques

lowed of the acres on each farm
^toat have been rented to the gov
^kttfent. Heretofore, the rule lias
that one-half this acreage
could be planted to food and feed
crops for use on the farm; and that
all or any part of the rented acres
could be left idle or planted to soil
improving or erosion-preventing
crops or to forest trees or to pas-,
We are today in receipt or a let
ter which contains a verv interest
ing ruling from Washington:
"Chester C. Davis. Administrator,
announced modification of all wheat,
corn-hog and tobacco contracts In
every State to REMOVE ALL RE
STRICTIONS ON THE PLANTING
AND HARVEST OP ALL FORAGE
CROPS, Including fodder corn and
grain sorghum, on all general or
"non-contracted" acres on farms un
der adjustment contracts.
"Restrictions on the use of the
contracted or-"rented" acres which
have been retired from basic crop
production under the cohtracts, are
also modified to permit the
planting and harvest of all forage
I' crops except corn and grain sor
ghum, and to permit pasturing those
retired acres and HARVESTING
HAY FOR FORAGE FROM THEM.
"The action taken today to modi
fy contract restrictions extends ear
lier rulings, made for the official
drought counties, to the entire coun
try. It also greatly increases the
possible use of contracted acres
both in the official drought counties
and throughout the rest of the coun
try. Previous rulings permitted pas
turing of contracted or rented acres
in the drought counties. PLANT
ING AND HARVESTING OF FOR
AGE CROPS, except corn and grain
sorghum, IS NOW POSSIBLE QN
ALL RETIRED ACREAGE in addi
tion to pasturing."
Measuring Rented Acres

the acreage rented by tobacco grow

PASSES KERR BILL
Is Somewhat Similar To The
Bankhead Cotton Control
SMALL GROWERS EXEMPT
Washington, June 12.?The Kerr
bill which would control tobacco
production through a tax penalty on
growers who refuse to cooperate
with farm administration adjust
ment programs was approved today
by the senate agricultural commit
? tee in the form that it passed the
Chairman Smith (D.. S. C.) said
he would bring the bill up "at the
first opportunity," although its fu
ture seemed uncertain because of the
drive for an early adjournment.
Sbnilar in principle to the Bank
head cotton control bill, the meas
ure contains several provisions which
caused the farm administration to
differentiate it from the cotton
measure and to bestow an endorse
ment given the Bankhead proposal
only after pressure.
The Kerr bill, named after its
author. Representative Kerr <D., N.
C.), would apply on all tobacco for
the 1934-35 crop save "Maryland to
bacco, Virginia. Virginia sun-cured
tobacco and cigar-leaf tobacco.
The measure would be applicable
also on the 1935-36 crop if the sec
retary of agriculture should find that
two-thirds of the growers affected
desire it, but it would expire at the
end of that period.
A maximum tax of 33 1-3 percent
and a minimum levy of 25 percent
of the sale price of tobacco grown
by non-cooperators would be levied
by the bill.
The tax would not apply to the
tobtcco covered by marketing agree
menu between growers and the sec
retary of agriculture. The secretary
is allowed leeway to take care of
situations where existing methods
of determining average production
might work injustices
In any event, growers raising less
than 2,000 pounds would not be-af
fected and growers who have not
signed agreements with the secre
1 tary would be given 30 days after
I the bill passes in which to enter in
to the pacts. i

As usual there was a heated con
test over the position of post mas
ter for Roxboro, the three eliglbles
having been made public about two
weeks since, these being Dr. E. J.

Bullock. On Saturday Hon. Prank
Hancock sent in the name of Dr.
Pucker and it is supposed there will
be no- further hitch, and you will
soon see a .new face at the post
Dr. Tucker has been a life-long
Democrat, has given much time to
the Democratic cause and is a gen
tleman of the old school; hence it
was no surprise to his friends, and
they are legion, when it became
known that he had been appointed.
The Democratic County conven
tion was held in the court house on
Monday afternoon. Mr. N. Lunsford,
County chairman, presided. The on
ly business was naming delegates to
the State convention which will
meet in Raleigh on Thursday, June
21st. The County is entitled to 16
delegates and these were named by
the chairman. A motion was also
adopted giving any Democrat, in
good and regular standing, who may
attend the State convention right to
sit in and vote his proportionate
part of the County vote.

Some few persons are saying that
the city water supply has a pond
taste and does not suit their pal
ates. A good many told me they
found no objection and were satis
fled. I will try to explain the best
I can for the benefit of those who
can detect a taste in the water.
Our supply is of surface water
gathered over a large watershed.
The water comes from old and new
plowed fields, forest with old and
new growth, all creeks and branch
es on the shed. Dissolved matter,
i that makes taste) tastes and odors
are pretty well mixed in the lake by
this time due to the large amount
of rain recently, more than we have
had in May or June in years. We
are troubled with taste and odor
twice a year (Spring and pall) to a
small amount-.. .This year we may
have more than usual the pond taste
and odor. * 7
The water as received at the plant
is subjected to the usual careful
clarifying and sterilizing process as
applied to all water at all times.
Please understand that coagulating
and sterilizing does not take out the
taste or odor. I use chlorine gas for
sterilizing every, dreg) of water. The
more polluted the raw water is the
more chlorine I use and vice versa.
Chrlorine is a pure element, when
put into the water forms chlorides
with other elements. The finished
water is stored in the 500,000 gallon
reservoir there the gas escapes. Free
chlorine can not be tasted in the
city water supply but If there are
are tastes and odors present chlor
ine will intensify both.
I understand your s and my cir
cumstances thoroughly and if you
will please consider everything it will
work off soon we hope. The water is
cleat as can be obtained It is both
bacteriologically pure and wholesome
