Josh came to Farmville in
1942, highly recommended as a
ble awl efficient young business ma
but citizens were to discover as, ...
months went by and oppor
presented themselves, that Josh Mv

Arriving here just as the shock o

confidence of his associates in '

He served as War Finance chr!

in this regard from J. B. Kittrell am
Sam Underwood, county chairmen
and from A. B. Corey in relation i

that of a devoted family man. Com

Our mutual interest in the further

us into do? alliance with Josh, and
contact w? constant as we worked
together upon the problems affecting
both. Thus we came to know him
well wid a strong and lasting friend

As he bows off the Farmville
stage, we wish him continued suc

manner, happy disposition and at
tractive personality. He leaves a
deep impress on this community and
well exemplies the Rotary slogan,
"He profits most who serves best,"
bringing to mind a verse, by John
Bert Graham, of Waxahachie, Tex., a
Past Rotary District Governor, who
might have penned it with Josh in
mind had he known him.
If I but owned a little shop
I'd see that my employees bop
To meet a buyer at the door;
And not look like it was a bore
To wait on folks. I'd make folks feel
That when they finished up a deal,
Both they and I were gainers. For
when customers came in my store
I'd want continuing goodwill
To be the reason why my till
Was filled with cash. And, after all,
The forthright way you hit the ball
Determines if you lose or win.
My motto, "Each customer a friend."

J. Frank Doggett of the Soil Con
serration Service at State College
declared that the "string method" of
contour tillage for craps (such ?
tobacco) which require ridge culti
vation and are sensitive to draining
is - expanding rapidly in this ?ate
and will mean an annual saving ?
both in cash and soil fertility ? of
millions of dollars to farmers.
The curved row practice, which has
proved so effective in the past in
quelling erosion and preserving the
quality of tobacco and other crops,
is being adopted this year by tobacoo
farmers in Maryland and Connecticut
who recently sent representative* to
this state for study of the plan.
J. E. Graham, tobacco fanner of
the Godwin community in Cumber
land County who began using carved
rows two years ago, reports that to
bacco does not drown in the terrace
channels and, inasmuch as channels
do not fill up, no rows are broken, by
water run-off, a common damage re
sulting from the use <x* straight
In applying the "string method,'
the farmer simply uses a string and
stakes to mark off a curved guide
row and follows that contour through
out the field. When a pitcher
"polls the string," he serves up "sl6w
stuff" to Stop the batter. When the
farmer pulls the string, he slows up
the water and stops erosion.
