What can I seed on my land
in the feed-grain program that
will protect and improve it,
seems to be the question of
many farmers. I hate to leave
it “laying-out” this summer
growing weeds, say many of
Frankly, since crotalaria has
been black-balled, we don’t have
a good soil conservation cover
crop for sandy land. A new
plant, Hairy Indigo, is being
tried in Chowan County on a
few farms. Hairy Indigo is a
summer annual adapted to the
Gulf Coast from Florida to Tex
as. It grows fairly well on mod
erately poor sandy land. It has
a low lime requirement. It
serves as a conservation crop
or pasture crop or hay crop, i
Hairy Indigo is resistant to the
root-knot nematode and is a
legume. The plant resembles
crotalaria in being resistant to
root-knot nematode and will I
grow on poor sandy land.
The Chowan County Supervis
ors at their meeting this month
decided Hairy Indigo should bej
tried and will handle seed or-;
ders for it since local seed deal

Seed have been located for 23
cents per pound delivered in

Conservation Farm Plans
R. C. Byrum, Tyner, N. C.,
and Eugene Jordan, Tyner, N. C.
have prepared conservation farm
plans this month. Both said they
were well pleased with their
plans and that every farmer
ought to take a few days from
his busy shedule and prepare a
conservation farm plan. The ob
jective of the conservation farm
plan is to use every acre within
its capability and treat it ac
cording to its needs. Both of
these plans met that objective.

construction of the drainage pro

and specifications are available

The church sees in the liquor
industry a foe that would un

} Obviously we must deny our
selves some things in order to
! achieve others. This is why
self-discipline is so important.
| Jesus spoke of the narrow
gate and the hard way that lead
to life (Matthew 7:14). The
principle implied in his state
ment may be observed in every
area of our living.
A mature Christian is one who
possesses a fair amount of
Christian truth and applies this
truth to his own life. He does
not merely see facts objectively;
he identifies himself with these
facts by an act Os will. Which
brings us to an important truth
for the Christian in his daily
life: He must discipline himself
to .do those things which he
ought to do, doing them with
joy if he can, but as a duty if
he must. Our greatest satisfac
tions will be found to stem from
this steadfastness of purpose.
Christian discipline obviously
means better Church attendance,
more faithful prayer life, more
generous giving of our material
and spiritual support to the
church. When we recognize
these significant results, we see
that mature Christians, not spir
itual adolescents, are needed in
Let us, therefore, as Christians,
lift up our voices to God, and
implore Him to help us rise
above those indulgences that de
stroy us; let us pray that He
will grant us vision to see our
selves as He has intended for us
to be—His creatures, clean in
body, mind and soul. <
