FARMVTLLE NEEDS HOMES
We notice a news dispatch from
another State, reporting that an in
dnkcrial plant will begin construction
on two hundred houses for workers,
at a cost of (1 ,$46,000.
The point that the news article
makes is that people who must work
must have houses in which to live.
The same oheerration applies to
Faratville, where there is a serious
shortage of dwelling units. In fact,
the construction of living quarters
is probably of first importance in
connection with efforts to attract in
dustry or workers into this town.
While the same situation probably
exists, in a greater or lesser degree
in other areas, of the State, the first
community to offer homes will prob
ably be the first in adding population
Without referenc to almanacs or
calendars, Eastern Carolinians are
aware that Spring is on its way. ~i
Trees have not y^t donned new
green-fingered gloves for its freeh
branches nor have all flowers beat
unlocked to paint thd landscape a
brilliant hu#,^but signs it Spring are
on every hand.' Jonquils give golden
yellow brilliance to spots which a
few weeks ago were drab and bar
ren. Gardeners with "green thumbs"
are probing into the soil and arous
ing the sleepy earth from its lethar
gy. Youngsters go to sehoti in a
leisurely fashion; those on rural
routes enjoy standing in the open
waiting for their bus, rather than
remaining indoors until the very lisst
minute. Tobacco plant bed covers
have lost their newness and white
ness. People stop on the street and
exchange greetings, rather than nod
-hurriedly and pass on without stop
ping, as is their wont during winter.
Followers of Isaac Walton, who in
herently know when the fishing sea
son arrives, are fondly hyriling their
fishing equipment and are anxious
to wee more visit their favorite
Despite all this surface calm and
beauty, early Spring is deceitful.
Dont be lured too far away from
top-coats and dont be too anxious to
bank fires for the summer; winter
doesn't give way without a struggle
and it is quite likely aome more
rough weather will be experienced
before Spring comes to stay.

STATE COLLEGE ANSWERS
TIMELY FARM QUESTIONS
Question: Hesse give me say.
available information en the effect
of nal?g a 70 per cent DDT eolation
for spraying tobacco.
Answer: In reply to your request
for this information, Corwtn V.
Stahl, entomologist for the Agricul
tural Research Foundation, Oxford,
has this to say: "To date we have
had only one season daring which
we have been able to utilise DDT for
insect control in the fields. Oar ex
perience has been limited to the m|
of this material wilh Fermate for
the control of blue mold and flea
beetles in tobacco plant beds. When
used as, recommended for protection
from blue mold, this combination
gave very good control of the flea
beetle. One pound of actual DDT
and IS pounds of Fermate per 100
gallons of water was the mixture.
While are have found that DDT is
very effective in the control of cer
tain insect pests attacking tobacco,
we do not feel that it would be de
sirable to recommend it until
have more information regarding
the possibility of injury to the plants,
or the effect that It might have on
the quality of the finished product."
Question. How ean' I prevent
damage by carpet beetles to stored
Answer: Clothing stored in tight
boxes, trunks, or closets may he pro
tected from carpet beetle damage
by using flake napthalene or- pura
dichlorobenzene crystals, according
to James T. Conner, Jr., entomolo
gist for the State College Extension
Service. These materials should be
used at the rate of about one pound
to each trunk of clothing. It is pre
ferable to place the flakes or crystals
between layers of thin paper at va
rious levels in the trunk. In closets
that are kept tightly closed, about
a pound of either material auspeni
eo in a^muslin bag to each 100 cubic
feet of floor space should be uael.

BIRD CLUB NOTES
Noticeable to even a beginner in
Mrdstody is the way in which God
has created each different type of

S "" ' *" ? J;
titled. "Behold the Birds ad the Air,"
written by Rev. Jamas Sprort for the
"Christian .Observer." Sad read at
the Bird Oub, Saturday morning.
One is filled with awe when he tales
notice of Gods death e power in de
signing a bird. Hunting birds (birds
of prey) have their eyes set in the
front of their heads so that they may
see straight forward; thorn which
are hunted have pyes in the aide of
the head to give backward and for
ward vision. Author Sprunt stieas
es the marvelousnees of the fact that
there are four chief kinds of feathers
on birds and that "on each feather
there are ever a million barbs and
barbleta, each turning on its axis bo
that the upstroke of the wing lets
the air through, and the downward
stroke makes the wing impervious to
Not only should men behold birds
for the Joy of knowing them or lean
ing through them* God's power in
cresting, but also because they tell
of God's providence. God's bounty
and care for man is far greater than
it is for the birds. Certainly human
beings shouldn't think they are for
gotten, when God knows even if a
sparrow, a lowly bird indeed, falls
to the ground.
Every person should be grateful to
his Maker, reminds Rev. Sprunt,
when he remembers that if it were
not forthe way God has fitted birds
into Nature's cycle to balance the
amount of insect life, agriculture
would perish from the earth and
with it man. Insects, which man's
feathered friends are constantly wag
ing war against, are any nation's
greatest enemies. More than 0,000
of them have been classified and
countleea other have not The writ
er closed this part of the article with
the thought that every person should
be grateful for birds, who through
God's graciousnees, keep th human
race from perishing from the earth.
