By maidred MORRIS i
I What kind of pressing equip
ment do you have? “With little
effort, at no cost, I have found ;
that I can make my own press
ing equipment,” reports Mrs.
Robert Porter, Plymouth.
“As a result of the demonstra
tion on pressing techniques by
our home economics agent, Mrs.
Frances Darden, I know I will
do a much better job pressing
my garments, especially these
synthetic materials,” she says.

Successful Year For
Continued from Page 1, Section 1
Woodland practices increased
during the last fiscal year. One.
hundred and ninety-six acres of]
trees were set as compared to'
83 acres the year before. Part]
of this increase was due to the
cooperation of Union Bag-Camp
and Halifax Paper Company in
the tree-purchasing program.
Three hundred and forty-seven j
acres of woodland weeding was|
completed as compared to 50
acres the year before. 14,4001
feet firelanes were construct-1
ed. Most of the firelanes were
prepared with the K/G blatle.
Gilliam Wood made his fire
lanes 40 feet wide and planted
wildlife food borders on each
side and annual food mixtures
in the center.
Drainage practices received at
tention. Four miles of six-inch
drain tile was installed, 6.4 miles
of mains and laterals and 5.8
miles of group drainage projects
completed. A fairly “new” prac
tice in the district is grass wa
terways. 4.5 acres were estab
lished this past fiscal year while
only 2.4 acres had been estab
lished prior to fiscal 1960.
Conservation Farm Plans
J. B. Bunch and B. W. Evans
are scheduled this month for
technical assistance in preparing
basic soil and water conservation
plans on their farms. Gilliam
Wood is revising his old con
Eugene Jordan, Tyner, is con
structing open ditches as plan
ned in May, 1961 in his basic
conservation plan. An impound
ed pond will be constructed this
Canaan’s Temple group drain
age project will soon be com
pleted. Construction started in
June and will be finished this
week. Thirty-five farms will
benefit from these canals. This
gjroup started work on their
drainage project in 1960. The
necsesary field work was done
by SCS through the district pro-

“lf you are not sold on the
value of a kitchen exhaust fan,
you should talk with Mrs. Ray I
Buckner in Madison County,”
says Mrs. Ruby Corpening, as
sistant home economics agent.
Mrs. Buckner says, “Since I
have had my exhaust fan in
stalled, my house stays cleaner,
windows do not need cleaning
as often, and I do not have food
odors and smoke in my house.”
Commercial Vegetable Project
Mary Bartles, Union Mills,
Route 2, is interested in grow
ing vegetables for the market.
Mary got off to a good start by
having her garden soil tested.
She followed recommendations
for fertilizing and then planted
one-half acre of green beans,
squash and okra.
Mrs. Shirley Koone, assistant
i home economics agent in Ruth
lerford County, says Mary has
already found a market for her
produce. To broaden her inter
est in marketing, Mary entered
