Director Of Selective Service
Cautions July 1st Registrants
Place Of Residence Must Draft Board
R Definite: No Future Reports Progress
Transfer Of Cards
Men who will register on July
1, 1941, were cautioned today by
General J. Van B. Metts, state
director of selective service, to be
careful to give to the registrar who
registers them correct information
as to the place of their perma
nent residence. The name of the
township, county and state must
be stated specifically and must be
placed on line 2 of the registra
tion card. It is most important
that men registering be careful to
give the correct location of their
residence because the place of reg
istration card will determine the
local board which will .have jcris
dietkm over them, General Metts
On the first registration day
many registrants gave confusing
information, and this resulted in
their registration cards often be
ing assigned to the wrong local
board. This resulted in many com
plications and Selective Service
agencies were subjected to unreas
onable worry and trouble transfer
ring cards. The new Selective Serv
ice Regulations, prepared for the
July 1, 1941, registration, provide
that there will be no future trans
fer carts. The place of residence
of the registrants, which will ap
pear on line 2 of the registration
card, will once and for all deter
mine the local board which has
control over the registrant, j
' A place is provided on the new
registration card for the registrants
to indicate the place of residence
and the mailing address. Tht mail
ing address is not so important as
the residence address, because the
mailing address may be changed
as often as the registrant estab
lishes a new address. But the place
of residence, to be indicated on
line 2 of the registration card,
will never be changed, and the
original card will be assigned to
the local board having jurisdiction
over the area of the residence ad
dress. The new Regulation: provide that
the registrant shall be permitted
to determine what place he de
sires to give as his residence when
he does no reside in one place all
the time, but once that election
is made and is stated on registra
tion day and is recorded on the
registration card, it may never be
Every man in the State of North
Carolina who has attained the 21st
anniversary of the day of his birth
since October 16, 1940 (with few
exceptions noted below), must reg
ister with his local Selective Serv
ice board on July 1, State Direc
tor J. Van B. Metts .stated today.
Men required to register in this
second registration are those who
were born on or between October
17, 1919, and July 1, 1920.
Aliens, as well as American citi
zens, who become 21 years of age
before midnight July 1, 1941, must
register, Director Metts emphas
ized. He also pointed out that
aliens between the ages of 21 and
36 years, who have come to the
United States since the first regis
tration on October 16, 1940 and
have not yet registered, must reg
ister on July 1.
Special arrangements will be
made by local board to register
men who canndt appear before the
local board because of illness or
incapacity. Men subject to regis
tration who are inmates of asy
lums, jails,, penitentiaries, or other
similar institutions on July 1 will
be registered by the warden on
the day they leave the institution:
Men subject to registration on

pense ana inconvenience, return

AAA, TVA Committees
Make Farm Suggestions
By S. W MENDENHALL
L'pon the advice of AAA and
TVA community and county com
mittee, the following suggestions
are being offered for consideration
of Macon farmers. It is felt that
some of these suggestions can be
put into practice an our farms and
will help relieve a shortage of feed
and food that has been caused by
the dry weather.
Hay that was to have been sup
plied by oats, grasses, lespedeza,
and clovers will be considerably
short. To help make up this short
age, . soybeans, cane, millet, Sudan
grass or corn may be seeded and
cut for hay. After any of these
crops are cut for ' hay the land
should be seeded immediately to
some cover crop such as rye, crim
son clover, vetch, ryegrass or
Austrian winter peas. Besides be
ing a cover crop and improving
the land these crops should afford
excellent winter grazing.
Pastures are over grazed even
when our seasons are good. Even
though we may have rain from
now on pastures can not come back
to full strength. Therefore it will
be necessary to seed some of the
above mentioned cover crops for
grazing in order to carry our cat
tle through the winter and at the
same time give the pastures a
chance to build hack.
You can secure rye grass, Aus
trian winter peas, and vetch
through the Agricultural Conserva
tion program as a grant .of aid
the same as lime or phosphate.
Crimson clover that could not
be turned should be cut and
threshed or combined. Chances are
that crimson clover seed wi
much higher this fall at seeding
time. This land can still be planted
to corn, beans or July potatoes.
Irish potato land can be planted
in beans. The tendergreen is prob
ably one of the best market va
rieties. This land can also be
planted to corn for late roasting
ears or for silage. With a pos
sibility of a shortage on potatoes,
it would seem advisable to plant
July potatoes. If you still have
oty. potatoes on hand you can
plant them and with a good season,
should make a fair yield.
Gardens should be replanted.
Beans, corn, cabbage, turnips, to
matoes, mustard, spinach or kale,
crowder or field peas, beets, lima
beans, and Irish potatoes may still
be planted. This year you will need
a fall and winter garden more than
Corn probably will be one of
our best crops. Corn planted this
month should still make silage. If
we ever needed a silo it will be
this year. If you have as many as
six cows now is the time to plant
some extra corn and dig a silo.
