Gutterson, chief, general salvage section, WPB Conservation Division, stated August 18th. "This movement," said Mr. Gutter son, "represents a shipment of 4,000 tons daily. The scrap rubber piles still seen in some places will be moved as soon as transportation fa cilities permit and the plants can pro cess them.

Softball Championship Series Now Standing Even - Steven \ flCTORY ON THE FARM FRONT T MWS from tfm Afrialtvrtl txtnsnt Stnkt NEW FEUE-CCRED TOBACCO VARIETIES ARE DEVELOPED Two new varieties of flue-cured tobacco have been developed by the N. C. Agricultural Experiment Sta tion, in cooperation with the Bureau of Plant Industry of the U. S. De partment of Agriculture, it is an nounced by Dr. L. D. Baver, Experi ment Station director of N. C. State College. One of the varieties now bearing the name "No. 401," will likely add $40 to $50 per acre to the income of tobacco grpwers, as com pared with a number of other va rieties they are growing, Dr. Baver reported. Both the No. 401 variety and the No. 400, the other new variety, have some resistance to diseases, the re search leader said. The No. 400 is highly resistant to the black rot dis ease. The black root rot infests areas in the Old Belt (Piedmont area) and the No. 400 variety is not recom mended for the New Bright or Bor der belts. The No. 401 variety, however, is recommended for all flue-cured belts. Dr. Baver said. It may be planted anywhere in the flue-cured area. The No 401 variety was de veloped from a cross between the Cash and No. 400 varieties, and both of these varieties show some resist ance to leaf spot diseases. The State College official also announced that the Experiment Sta tion and the Bureau of Plant In dustry have developed a very satis factory variety that is resistant to the Black Shank disease. This va riety, as yet un-named, may be re leased for the 1943 season. "A resistant variety to Granville Wilt and Mosiac also appears in sight," said Dr. Baver. "The three diseases ? Black Shank, Granville Wilt and Mosiac?cost the tobacco farmers of the flue-cured area well over a million dollars annually." Red Clover New varieties of red clover have produced from one-fourth to one ton more hay per acre than varieties commonly used. -4> Feathers A plea to save all kinds of poultry feathers for comforters, millinery and military purposes is made by poultry specialists. I rubber campaign (June 15 to July 10) brought into local filling stations 454,155 tons, according to the report of the Petroleum Industry's War Council. Never before has so large a stock pile been accumulated in such a short period of time." Conservation Division officials are j urging everybody to get in every scrap of unused rubber that can be found in their houses, farms, barns, shops and mills, and add it to the Victory Stockpile for 1943. Brav<?*-Car<linalt} Gain 6 to 3 Win in Yesterday's Exhibition The Braves-Cards combination ev ened up the series yesterday by pounding out a 6-3 win over the Dodgers-Martins aggregation. Os wald Stalls hurled the win. allowing seven hits. The winners opened the first by counting twice as Gurganus walk ed, stole second, went to third on a passed ball, and scored on N.

F. Mt Knight, work unit leader of th Coast Plain soil conservation distric said this week that seed of thes crops must be harvested on the fai r if an adequate supply is to be avail able for planting next year. "Lespedeza, cowpeas, soybean! crotalaria, and sericea lespedeza ar the most important legume seed tha can be saved," he said. "In th grasses, seed from Da I lis and earpc grass can be harvested." H<* points out that adequate sup plies of these crops that will be re quired in carrying out farm conser vation plans and also in establish ing soil conserving practices may no be available through commercia channels. \ 'The war has closed the Europeai seed-producing areas to the Ameri can markets. Then too, he adds, far mers will need large supplies of for age, soil-conserving, and pastur plant seed next spring to add nitre gen to the soil to make up for a lac] of commercial nitrogen and to in sure the sustained production of foo< for freedom. "There's more than enough le gume and pasture plant seed to tak care of next year's planting needs i harvested," the conservationist saic "but unless this seed is saved a short age may develop. Averting that pos sibility falls directly on the shoul ders of the farmers themselves." Wanted WE NEED 50 USED SUITS Bring your old auit in toiluy and trade it on one of our NEW FALL SUITS.

PITTMAN'S Future Tire Quotas Will Be Decreased Warning that tire quotas will have to bo cut in September from the Au gust- level, the Office of Trice Ad ministration August 21st called upon the local War Price and Rationing Boards for the "strictest possible in tempretatiqni" of a recent amend ment to the tire rationing regula tions restricting truck eligibility to vehicles essential to the war effort or public health and safety. A letter to the boards explains that the War Production Board, which al locates rubber for military, civilian ind other uses has notified OPA that allotments for tires must follow downward trend for the remaining months of 1942 in order to stay with in the amount of rubber ear-marked for the purpose. Although the reduced allocation follows a seasonal pattern of prior years when truck tire use tapered in the fall and winter months, it lomes at a time when war produc tion and kindred activities are keep ing many heavy vehicles at work night and day. It was to provide tires for these and other essential trucks that OPA late in July made a change in its rationing regulations which a ill result in denying tires to an es timated 200,000 vehicles carrying al ?oholoc beverages, soft drinks, can lies. furs, and other luxury goods During the past 5 months when juotas have been increased monthly o take care of additional require nents during the hot months, some ocal boards have followed a prac ice of carrying over unfilled appli ?ations from one month in anticipa ion of a larger quota in the next.
