HIGHWAY PATROL’S ‘WELCOME TO NORTH
CAROLINA" CAMPAIGN WINNING FRIENDS
Many Letters Received From Out of State Com
plimenting Efforts to Make Highways Safer
And More Attractive For Traveling Public
Several thousand tourists are tour -1
ing with a better understanding of
North Carolina’s traffic safety pro
gram if the results of the Highway
Patrol’s “Welcome to North Carolina” |
campaign is any indication.
For the past six weeks now troop
ers stationed at the Virginia and South
Carolina line have been greeting out
of staters with a verbal handshake, a
tip of the hat and a specially prepar
ed safety leaflet.
The patrol’s unofficial host, Major
D. T. Lambert, said recently more than
75 thousand of the colorful leaflets had
been handed to cross state tourists
and distributed to restaurants, motels
and tourist stops along U. S. High
Major Lambert planned the project
to acquaint tourists first with North
Carolina traffic regulations and sec
ond to make their stay in the state
as pleasant as possible. In addition to
several paragraphs of precautions, the
leaflet also says state troopers are on
the roads to offer “friendly service
and roadside assistance.”
The leaflets invite comment from
out of staters in an attached coupon.
A dozen or so, mostly from north
ern states, have reached the patrol of
fice bearing complimentary remarks.
A random selection includes one from
a North Windham, Connecticut lady
driver. She says: “The friendly greet
ing by your state trooper at the state
line was a welcome gesture. My first
trip driving from Florida to Connecti
cut and I found North Carolina one
of the most pleasant states for driv
Another, from a Marine captain at
Cherry Point, congratulated the high
way patrol for “leading in this field
From Illinois, a traveler wrote, “My
hearty congratulations for your high
way regulations. I wish all states
would follow your excellent highway ]
From New Jersey: “We appreciate
your campaign for safe driving and |
wish that more states would follow !
From New York: “We enjoyed our
drive through North Carolina. Found
the roads very good.”
And from Rhode Island, probably
the most flowery of all: “I have just
returned from a trip to Palm Beach.
Florida on your famed route 301, Be- !
fore leaving for the Southland, we
were warned about being “taken in” I
by your alert highway patrol. I could j
not believe this bt cause no Southerner
could be. guilty of unfairness. I be-:
lieve that 55. mph is a very fair and!
safe speed. Your highway patrol is ;
to lie congratulated for doing a fine !
job in a courteous and helpful manner, j
Your roads arc beautiful and anytime
a person goes beyond the set speed
he should fined and fined plenty.” :
Another New Yorker . njoyed his
trip over Tar Heel roads and conclud
ed his comments by asking, "Kindly'

“Do you rh'nk there, is any. truth in

the intellectual voting woman.

Range Sanitation Is
Termed As Important
Most of the pullets raised in North
Carolina each year are developed on
ranges and housed in range shelters. |
To conduct such a developing program
successfully, the poultryman must con
sider range sanitation.
R. S. Dearstyne, head of the depart
ment of poultry science, N. C. State
College, says range sanitation is inti
mately related to the livability of the
pulelts. The periodic moving of shel
ters is highly important. Pullets
spend the night under the shelters
and often a part of the day, if the
weather is hot and if ample shade is
not available. During their stay in
the shelter, a large quantity of drop
pings is voided. These sift through
the wire floor to the ground hencath.
These droppings often contain worm
eggSj coccidia and disease-producing
bacteria. Consequently, the shelters
should he moved at frequent intervals.
How often should these intervals he?
This usually is related to the volume
of droppings and as to how close the
crop in the area adjacent to the shel
ter has been grazed. Generally apeak- J
ing, the time of moving ranges from

An important, and often neglected,
part in range sanitation lies in ade

the area be limed. This aids in neu
