X It will soon be time to har
vest your wheat, oats, rye, or
l>ariey. Will we continue the
scorched-earth policy of the past
or will be practice soil and wa
ter conservation and have green
fields rather than burnt fields.
The answer will come from you.
Farmers do not like to burn
vegetation on their farms but
lighting a match is the lazy
man’s way or the easy way.
You can improve your soil,
your farm, and in most cases
increase the yields of the second
crop by stubble-mulch planting
your soybeans or milo behind
Stubble-mulch planting is not
exactly new, your neighbor or
you might have used it before.
It’s a simple principal of man
agement . ", . use-all crop resi
due for the benefit of the soil.
This crop residue "opens-up”
firm soils, increases the mois
ture available, and decreases
irunoff. Main benefit is that the
„ moisture present when the small
grain is harvested is kept. Burn
ing and breaking the land, caus
es moisture to be lost.
W. H. Winborne tried three
methods of planting soybeans be
hind wheat last year.
One part of the field was
burned and planted, another a
special chopper destroyed the I
straw and the third was mulch- i

he was resigning because he
could not agree with the school
policy. His letter of resigna
tion was not received until the
following day. Prior to that
neither Uie principal, nor the
superintendent, nor any member
\>f the Board of Education knew
that Mr. Bray was dissatisfied or
j had any intention of resigning.
* Following receipt of his letter
of resignation. Mr. Bray was
called into conference and asked
why he had not discussed his
grievances with the principal, the
superintendent or members "of ’
the Board of Education. His ex
planation was that he did not
make the school policy and when
he could not agree with it, which
he did not. he ought to get out
of the organization. He insisted
that he had enjoyed his work in ’
Edenton and that there was
nothing personal in his decision.
He stated that he had no other
reason for leaving except that
he strongly disagreed with the
After these conferences and
the article appearing in The
Chowan Herald school officials
were firmly convinced that Mr.
Bray would not reconsider re
turning and that he had gone
beyond the point of no return,
or that he had burned his bridg
es behind him. A search was
immediately begun for a re
placement. A young man was
found with an excellent musical
background and with eight years
successful experience as a band
director. He was highly recom
mended by a former employer.
After a persona] interview with
this man school officials were
prepared to present his applica
tion and his qualifications to the
Board of Education at its regu
lar meeting last Thursday even
A* this meeting, however, a
large delegation of band parents,
accompanied by Mr. Bray, ap
peared before the Board. The
purpose of this delegation was
to see if Mr. Bray could be re
tained as band director in spite
of his resignation and of She ar
ticle in The Chowan Herald.
Suggestions were mode jhto the
fduootio* be made on elective
at making it e required course

difficulty in mulch-planting and
none in cultivating the soy
Yield was highest behind
burning, next on the mulch

planting. He believes that the
mulch-planted soybeans would
have been best in a normal dry
Mr. Winborne thinks these re
sults were obtained because of
summer. He can tell a differ
ence in condition of the soil this
year behind the mulch planting.
He says the soil is loamy in the
mulch-planted field as compared i
to the burnt field. Com is
planted in all three plots this
year but as yet no real differ
ence in the growth of the corn
is noted. Mr. Winborne thinks
that if a dry season comes, a
real difference in the com
growth will be noted.
Stubble-mulch equipment is
not hard to “rig up’’. Your locai
equipment dealer can do it with
advice and help of the County
Agent or Soil Conservationist.
Remember you are a steward of
God’s earth. Soil and water con
servation practices protect this
natural resource as well as in
crease your farm income. Try
a stubble-mulch planting this
| year on your farm and you be
i the judge.
I most would not elect it. Neither
would the Board agree to waive
the requirement for band pupils.
There could be no more justi
fication in waiving the course
for band pupils than for English
