Richard Daily, State Conser
vationist for North Carolina, was
the speaker at the Lions Club
meeting on Monday evening.
Daily, a graduate of State Col
lege in civil engineering, was
introduced by Jimmie Griffin.
Soil Conservationist for Chowan
Mr. Daily noted that the Soil
Conservation Service was mark
ing its 25th anniversary during
1960. He talked about soil con
servation districts in compari
son with Conservation Service.
The districts were organized
somewhat later than the Soil
The work of soil and water|
conservation is of vital import- 1
ance to farmers, land owners.!
and urban people equally, the
speaker pointed out. The role
of soil conservation districts is
that of approving local projects i
and securing technical assistance
and financial aid. District su
pervisors are three in number
[and are elected by vote each!
I year to serve three years so!
| there is always a retiring super-j
I visor and a new supervisor. Mr. |
Daily pointed out that no tech
j nical project is carried out by
- Soil Conservation Service that
has not been channeled through |
| the districts. The local district
supervisors are Joe Webb. Lloyd j
|C. Bunch and H F Bvrum. i
Thus board of supervisors, it was
pointed out. not only use the
technical assistance of soil con
servation service, but other gov
ernmental agencies as well.
Mr. Daily stressed that not
onlv the planning and execution
of soil and water conservation
are under local supervision, but
that local government agencies
assist in many areas in financing
as well. He stated that North,
Carolina lagged behind someoth-j
er states in this respect, but he]
paid tribute to Chowan County’s]
financial participation in that it i
furnished clerical help to Con
servationist Jimmie Griffin to al
low him to spend more time on
technical work in the field.
He told his audience that'
North Carolina had a long way
to go in putting good conserva
tion practices into effect and il
lustrated this by some findings
shown in a recent inventory by
Mr. Daily reminded his listen
ers that good soil and water
conservation practices are vital!
to the continued growth of the:
country since not only are farms:
dependent on conservation ofj
economic natural resources, but i
industry as well.

; The speaker, Mr. Leffler, was
introduced by Congressman Her
, ben Bonner, who in his re
marks said he was vitally in
, j terested in the fishing industry,
(both commercial and sport fish
r ing. He expressed his pleasure
’ over the fact of the Merchant
Marine and Fisheries Committee,
of which he is chairman, au
\ rhorized the construction of the
new fish hatchery and that he
had a part hi bringing the
: hatchery to Edenton. He said
lit was one of the most modem ,
(hatcheries in the country and '
will well serve Eastern North ,
Carolina. He said the hatchery |
will add to what nature was j
intended to do atid what nature ■
sometimes is retarded from do- ]
Mr. Leffler in his opening re- <
i marks said. "The development of 1
| this station is an excellent ex- i
J ample of the results of ideas ,
| put to work. This is a beau- \
tiful site and I am impressed <
with the effort to construct fa- j
cilities which not only look well ]
; but are skillfully designed to 1
produce a product which will i
j give pleasure and recreation to <
(thousands of citizens. The de- |
partment which I represent is i
proud of this development.”
Before discussing the physical i
features of the new hatchery, Mr. ;
Leffler said. "Just what are we 1
dedicating today? Is it just a I
fish hatchery? No, we are here j
to dedicate our knowledge and ]
our efforts to a purpose. That i
purpose is the enhancement of .
recreational opportunities in this '
area for a belter and more satis
j tying way of life—one in which 1
Iwe find relief from worry and ,
[burdens chat bear upon us every' «
i day. It is something for all ’
people, old and young, sick and
well, those with little or much of ■
. this world's goods, and without
I regard to race or religious faith,
t (What could be more American?"
Mr. Leffler stated that Eden
ron has become somewhat of
a monument in the history of
lushing conservation in that its ,
citizens have on two occasions
j recognized die need for taking |
positive steps to improve fishing
in this ami. To borrow from
Abraham Lincoln. Mr. Leffler 1
: said, "three score and one years <
: ago, there was constructed at 1
I Edenton a new fish hatchery. 1
i conceived m the minds of the 1
; citizens of Edenton and dedicat- :
ed to the purpose of props gat -

ier. "served well in its day
j which was many years ago, but
1 time changes all things. The
j growth of the farm pond pro-i
■ gram in the past 15 years has|
been phenomenal. The need for|
some form of healthful retaxa
jtion such as fishing has increas
i ed along with the pace of mod
] ern day living. Recognizing the
inadequacies of the first fish|
hatchery and the need ter mod
ern hatchery facilities, the good
people of Edenton. represented
so ably by Cangresaran Bnmir,
have been instrumental in get-,
ting congressional appropriations
to permit construction of the fa-1
cilities you see here today.”
Tl*e speaker pointed out that]
under present plans species pro-,
dueed will consist of buss, blue-j
gill, redean, channel catfish and.
striped bass, and that with the.
exception of striped bass, 90% J
of production will be ter North
Leffler stated that the hrach
ery facilities are located on a
60-acre tract of land and con
struction was started April
1959. There are 23 ponds as-.
ready constructed with tee pros
pect .of 10 more being added.
The ponds vary in sire from .6
of an acre to .9 of an acre, with
a total water area in all of
the present ponds amounting toj
18.5 acres. The water depth!
varies from two feet to Sis fees. I
There are two dwellings on
tee property, one for tee super
intendent and the assistant.
There is a targe science build
ing which contain-; office space,
public toilets and a display room
in which there are a number of
aquarium tanks containing fish.
In this building there is also a
small laboratory which is
equipped for study of the prob
lems which arise in connection
with rearing of various species
of fish. Other buildings are
provided for the purpose of stor
ing equipment and supplies used
in the operation of the hatchery.
Back some distance from the
buildings is a fish holding house
in which are a number of con
crete tanks where the fish are
held in running water until such
time as they are distributed.
Mr. Leffler also said the Pres
ident's budget for 1961 contains
an item bur funds for additional
facilities at this hatchery. The
future construction will include.’
among other things, additional
ponds, special production facili
ties for striped bass, another
dwelling and fencing for the sta
In closing his remarks Mr. |
Leffler said. "The future holds
great promise of new and ex-|
citing fishery programs which
will extend and open new fields
in this wonderful sport. We are
encouraged by the overwhelming
public interest and bv local strp
port in wonhwhile projects such
as that we have received in con
niYtion with this new hatchery.
”1 want to again emphasize
that this new hatchery is an
outgrowth of a need to serve
the citizens of this area and to
provide recreation for them and
Mr. Leffler also stated that
his department is giving some
consideration of further use of
the old fish hatchery. It is
hoped to use the property as
headquarters for sport fish re
