For Each Garden
What constitutes a "Victory Gar
This question has been raised in
connection with the "Victory Gar
den" campaign through which every
farm family is asked to contribute
to the National war effort by pro
ducing their own fruits and vegeta
bles in 1942.
H. R. Niswonger, extension horti
culturist of N. C. State College, an
swers the question, as follows: "A
Victory Garden is one in which a
sufficient quantity of different veg
etables are grown to feed the fam
ily. Normally this requires one-tenth
of an acre for each member of the
family, with 10 or more different
Farmert In Buncombe Set

Record books submitted by dem

County show that growers made
more money in 1941 than in the past
several years, reports Assistant Farm
Agent W. R. Palmer.
The Navy trains mobile hospital
units staffed by two doctors and four
hospital corpsmen for use in epidem
ics and emergencies.
Niswonger suggests that the fol

I SAVE a lot of money by purchasing many
of the things I need at Junuary Sales . . und
I feel that the hesl pluee for those savings is
in the hunk. There, they earn interest for
me and are available as cash whenever I need
it. I like to see those little hank hook figures
grow ... I like to know that I have money for
those "extra" expenses that always arise.
That's why, after saving in any sale, my first

A century ago North Carolina had)
no' reputation for "good road: " In
fact, transportation facilities were
lacking and the state was so back
ward?thai writers of-that period
merely used the name "Old Kip" im
plying that the Old North State had
been sleeping for years.
A century ago there were no rib
bons of concrete criss crossing the
r?2,286; S(|iiare miles of Tar Heel soil.
Since Governor Morrison was chief
executive of North Carolina, other
stales have envied the extensive sys
tem of highways. There is some in
t cresting history behind, the story of
our hard-surfaced highways.
One.1 hundred years ago there was
a world-wide "good-road movement",
which causedexperiments of various
kinds in an effort to improve travel
and transportation Perhaps the most
interesting experiments were the
plank roads. In North Carolina there
were approximately five hundred
miles of highways constructed by
carpenters Five plank roads were
constructed from Fayettevillc to
towns in various parts ot the state.
The longest one was the Fayettevillc
aiid Western Plank Road which gpnn
ned the one hundred and twenty
five miles to Hethnnia in Forsyth
The roads paved with wood were
constructed upon a prepared road
bed by laying planks across large
sills. Those highways were nothing
more than a "floor" constructed from
town to town However, the planks
were heavier than regular floor
boards, for they were often three
inches thick, usually a 3 by 8.
Much was expected of the improv
ed roads. The Tarboro Southerner in
cluded the following in an editorial: |
Improvements of this kind will add

the manure is not available, then it
will be necessary to furnish plant nu

complete fertilizers may be used
safely at the rate of one ton per acre,
if applied broadcast. If applied in the
furrow, the applications should not
be greater than 1.0Q0 pounds per
acre. Heavier applications may prove
harmful. If more fertilizer seems
necessary, apply it as a side dressing
