P. H. Gerrard Talks to
Forest Supervisors .
Paul H. - Gerrard, of Franklin
supervisor of the Nantahala nation
al forest, addressed the national
forest supervisors' conference in
Atlanta, on the importance of fire
towers in the fire prevention pro
gram of the U. S. '.forest service.
"Fire towers are virtually the
eyes of the service, and the tower
system on any forest should be
planned for efficiency in fire con
trol work," supervisor Gerrard said;
He further stated that the preser
vation and wise use of all re
sources in the national forests are
absolutely dependent on adequate
fire prevention. Without fire pre
vention, timber would be destroyed;
stream flow would . be diminished
by the destruction of ground cover
which protects valuable watersheds ;
the productivity of lands would be
lessened by erosion of soil : fish
would be destroyed toy lack of
waters; and game animals injured
United States forest service of
ficials from 11 southern states , at
tended the conference at regional
headquarters. In addition to fire
control, the discussions covered
timber management, recreation,
game management, and the general
administration of the southern na
New Barley Varieties
Will Increase Yields
New strains, of barley developed
by experiment station workers will
help North Carolina farmers con
serve their soil and feed, their, live
stock a better ration.
Barley fits in well with the soil
conservation program, makes a
good nurse crop for lespedeza or
red clover, is an excellent feed for
stock, and grows at a convenient
time of year, said Dr. Gordon K.
Middleton, cereal agronomist of the
central experiment station at State
The 'state's barley production
dropped from 23,000 acres in 1930
to 9,000 acres in 1935, due to the
heavy inroads made by smut dis
ease, he continued.

The Macon t County .Board of Tax Equaliza
tion will meet at the Courthouse in Franklin on,
Thursday, June 10, for the purpose of hearing
any and all taxpayers who own or control tax
able property assessed for taxation in the
county in respect to the valuation of such
property or the property of others.
C. T. Bryson,
this state have a fairly good re
sistance to smut and produce com
paratively high yields of grain, and
Dr. Middleton believes they will
revive the barley crop.
.As a forage crop, the hooded or
siTioot varieties are preferred, while
bearded barleys produce the heavr
iest yield of grain.
The new hooded selection known
as No. 26, has averaged 27.3 push
els per acre in tests conducted dur
ing the past five years, as com
pared with 22.8 bushels produced
by Tennessee No. 6. Although No.
26 is not completely immune to
sumt, it does, show a far greater
resistance than any other variety
now grown in this state.
The average yield of all hooded
barleys in the state for the" years
1932-1936 was 33.8 bushels per acre,
while the bearded barleys produced
an average of 33.8 bushels.
A new' hybrid selection of beard
ed barley known as No. 15 has been
the highest producer, yielding 37.4
bushels to the acre.
Seed from hooded No. 26 and
bearded No. 15 are being produced,
but there will not be enough avail
able for general distribution until
1938, Dr. Middleton stated. Only a
few seed are now on hand.
