MAY USE OIL STOVES
North Carolina householders
may use their oil cooking stoves
this summer regardless of the avail
ability of coal or wood-fired stoves
OPA has announced. The present
restriction denying fuel oil rations
for domestic cooking and water
heating, if adequate "stand-by"
equipment is available, has been
lifted because of the shortage of all
fuels, and to encourage home canning.
Q. Will I have a good chance to get
new planters, drills and fertilizer dis
tributors next year?
A. J. D. Blickle, Extension Engi
neering Specialist at State College,
says that supplies of these implements
will probably be limited and that
growers had best clean their old im
plements at once. If fertilizer is al
lowed to stand in the hopper, it will
harden and corrode the metal parts,
causing them to stick and break when
the machine is again put in use. Make
certain that the hoppers, valves, feed
tubes and shafts are thoroughly clean
ed, even though it is necessary to take
the machine apart. After cleaning,
give the exposed parts a thin coat of
oil and store the machine out of the

Q. Can you give me suggestions
for the proper order of tobacco when
placed n sale?
A. State College Extension csped
alists say that lugs and cutters are in
proper order when they are just suf
ficiently moist to prevent injury in
handling. Lugs, especially priming
lugs, should be sufficiently dry to rat
tle slightly, when shaken, but not dry
enough to break. Tobacco of Leaf
grades can carry more moisture than
lugs and cutters. The tobacco of this
group should contain enough moisture
to make the tobacco supple but ex
cessive moisture should be avoided.
Wrappers should be in fairly soft or
der whea sold. If they are too dry,
they will not show the oil, elasticity,
smoothness, and finish required to
meet wrapper qualifications. Wrap
pers should not, however, contain too
much moisture as they bruise and dis
color easily when in very high order.
Tests reveal that growers can pro
duce more proteins, at no additional
expense, by cutting hay crops at an
early stage of maturity, when they
will yield more protein than the same
crops cut at a later stage.
Weevils in dried beans and peas in
storage will cause large losses this
summer unless the insects are proper
ly controlled by carbon disulphide,
says J. Myron Maxwell, in charge of
Extension Entomology at State Col
lege. He reports that these insects devel
op while the beans and peas are in
th the field and continue to develop
in the seeds after they are placed in
storage. For treating, the beans and
peas should be thoroughly dried and
placed in an airtight container, using
one-half teaspoonful of carbon disul
phide to the gallon of seeds. The fu
migating should be done when the
temperature is above 70 degrees and
the seeds should be left in the tightly
closed container for from 24 to 36
Maxwell suggests that a tightly wo
ven cloth be securely tied over the
mouth of the container, while the
seeds are being aired, to prevent other
insects from entering. After airing
for a few hours, place the seeds in
tightly woven sacks for storage. He
further suggests that the fumigation
process be repeated at the first signs
of insect presence and that the stored
sacks be examined every month.
The entomologist warns that carbon
disulphide is explosive and inflama
ble and that it should not be used
around fires, or sparks, or near light

Irregular fields of tobacco is the
order, with plants running from knee
high to head-high, making priming
difficult." the report reads. "Curing

Supervisor Hutto says that rains
have brought on the greatest trouble I
in the last three weeks, and that the
tobacco crop in the Lumberton area
as a whole will be off from last year's
banner yield of at least 10 per cent,
with the yeld in the territory close in
to Lumberton off at least 20 per cent.,
"Cessation of rain and an easing olT
of the clouds would greatly help, but
days of blazing sunshine would do

A strange place it would be this State
of ours if our splendid 60,436-mile net
work of improved highways suddenly
ceased to exist
A great many communities would be
isolated. Others would find it infinitely
more difficult to carry on even the most
ordinary daily activities with no trucks
on the move, no cars or buses taking
workers to war plants and farms, soldiers
to camp and home on furlough, business
travelers to nearby communities, chil
dren to school.
We North Carolinians are apt to take for
granted the convenience of our excellent
roads but these highways didn't just
grow. Building and maintaining them is
tremendous job and for achieving this
successfully we can thank past and pres
ent administrations and particularly the
North Carolina State Highway and Pub-
1 : ir i
That but the whole story, however.
Transforming these lifeless ribbons oi '
concrete and macadam into live, active
arteries of public transportation has -been
the accomplishment of the North'
Carolina Utilities Commission. They've '
labored hard and long to give our State f.
a transportation system that compares "
favorably with any other in the country.
All of us who live and work and pay taxes a
in North Carolina can take pride in our .
hare in this highway system. ,y
As fellow citizens, the Greyhound Lines r
have made a very large contribution in f
the form of license, fuel and operating
taxes but we feel that our greatest
service is in putting the highways to
work for the benefit of all who must
