v ' ' SAVING MHJJONS FOR THE TAXPAYERS .'
" Harold Ickea, Secretary 'of the Interior, has been subjected to
numerous attacks by advocates of municipal power plants' because he
evidently cannot be the logic of building such plants In towns already
efficiently and economically served by private systems. ' ;
That attitude on the part of the tflcial.who, has charge of the
vast PWA fund should be praised, not ftttacked. If the more fanatical
advocates of municipal power had their way. every town in
try. large or sina! growing or backsliding, would be blven a public
lyiwned efectrta pWt. Wgartle- of X need for ft. Tax-free sub

payed In taxes would be lost to the public treasuries Worst of aU. one
of our most essential Industries would become a plaything pf municipal

: Z BACK TO THE FARM
Two recent surveys cast new light on the current status of agri-
culture a .mall but encouraging rise in value of Ameri
can farms. Between March. UU and March, ..values rose to SO
tatea. declined In but five and remained unchanged In the other 1.
"Back to the Farm" is becoming a reality. Where a few years
- ago. the farm population was bring depleted by an exodus to the cl
ues, the trend has completely reversed an streams of people are going
from urban to rural areas. A number of reasons e behind this, sue
as industrial unemployment, the development of profitable .speclaHr
farming, and the desire of immigrants to leave the ettles for the land.
In addltioir. the number of individual farms is on the Increase, in

for North Carolina except possibly
In a small region about Chadbourn.
Although the variety nas proven
a ttinraaaful arenerallv. it has fail

the variety and Its difference from

Introduced Iti was stated that it

plants crowded together in the row.
Tne Coastal Plain Station at Wil
lard mailed with each lot of plants
sent out a circular stating that the
variety responded excellently to
the hill system of culture In con
trast to the matted row system.
Nevertheless, because the matted
row system has been so generally
practiced In eastern North Caro

heeded this advice. As a result
they have had small plants crowd
