Hardest Weather
Since 1918
Possibly tbe hardest spell of
weather that has visited this sec
tion since the winter of 1917-18
when the theremometer went to
10 below tero and the ground was
covered with snow and ice for
more than two weeks visited this,
section the past week. Before the
snow that fell on Sunday Decem
ber 22nd, had cleared the ground
another heavy snow fell to the
depth of 8 to 10 inches on Satur
day night and Sunday morning
and was followed by a strong coat
ing of sleet. The two snows com
bined practically paralized traffic
for several days. Although the
highway forces cleared the main
highways the hard cold weather
caused a coating of Ice to form
which added much to the unsafety
of the roads. The side roads and
less important highways which re
ceived no attention were practical
ly impossable for several days.
While the temperature remained
at a steady cold below the freezing
point, it did not get any where
near the low of 1917-18. So far
no damage from accidents caused
by the snow and Ice have been
reported in this section Frank
lin County not only had a white
Christmas, but a white New Year
as well.
Miss Margaret Holden and Mr.,
Nunia Freeman were happily mar-!
ried during the holidays.

Soil Conservation
In Franklinton
According to reports from the
Soil Conservation Service at
Frankllnton, recently established
under the U. S. Department of
Agriculture under the direction
of P. H. Massey as project mana
ger, an educational program is
being conducted in proper land
use in Franklin. Vance and Gran
ville Counties.
Working In cooperation with i
the vocational agricultural teach
ers in the counties above mention
ed. agricultural authorities from
the Soil Conservation Service will
conduct classes each week In the
various' phases of the soil conser
vation program. Practical train
ing will be taught In proper crop
rotations suitable to this section,
strip farming, terracing, forest i
improvement and wild life or'
game protection. All farmers who
are interested fn. the work and all
students in vocational agriculture
are invited to attend these classes
and go on the tours which will
be conducted from time to time
over the erosion ? control area,
where lectures will be delivered
in the field, in most cases, by men
trained In progressive farming.
The first class was held Friday,
December 4, on the farm of F. C.
Winston near Frankllnton. A total
of 272 agricultural students In
the following schools heard W. E.
Adams and Woodrow Haskins,
Government soils technicians, dis
cuss the various types of soils in
Franklin and Vance Counties:
December 9 ? Gold Sand and Ep
som; December IX ? Bunn and
Youngsvllle; December 16 ? Mid
dleburg and Aycock; December 17
? Edward Best. These men point
ed out the most common soil
types in these counties, which
were the Appling or yellowish
gray sandy loam, the Durham
which greatly resembleB the Ap
pling, and the Cecil or grayish
brown sandy, loam. All these soils
were described as being splendid
soil types. The Durham, these
specialists said, is a particularly
good tobacco soil.
The vocational agricultural stu
dents were shown how soils sur
veys were made, how the de
gree of erosion was determined
and told what were the best means
of controlling erosion on the vari
ous soil types. "The Appling Soil",
Bald Mr. Adams and Mr. Haskins,
"which is the most prevalent soil
type in Franklin county Is well
adapted to '.he growth of tobacco,
cotton, sweot potatoes, forage,
truck and small grain crops. In
this area the soil types are badly
washed and are in need of erosion
control work. There is a great
need for more close-growing crops,
strip farming, crop rotations, ter
races and other methods of con
trolling rain wash".
The complete schedule of clas
ses to be conducted by the Soil
Conservation Service In coopera
tion with the vocational teachers
of Franklin and Vance Counties
will be published in this paper as
soon as the vocational agricultural
teachers complete the schedule.
The headquarters of the Soli
Conservation Bervlce Is in High
Point where a project has been
In operation for two years. The
Regional Director for the state
is Dr. J. H. Stalllngs. The staff
of the Soil Conservation Service
In Frankllnton Includes P. H.
Massey, project manager: R. L.

^ Supt. W. R. Mills informed the
TIMES Tuesday that he hadi noti-!
fied all school authorities not to |
attempt to open the public schools
until Monday, January 6th. on
account of the heavy snow and
bad weather conditions that make
it so dangerous for the trucks to
run. It is hoped that by Monday
the &now and ice will be all gone
and the roads cleared so that the
trucks can travel with safety.
States Face Threat
Additional Snow
Two Carolinas Spend Thous
ands of Dollars to Clear
Traffic Lanes.
Struggling from tbe shackles,
of a week-end (all of six to 10
inches of snow, the Carolinas
heard with gloom yesterday that
more snow was in prospect.
Weather forecasts for the two,
states were snow last night and
still more snow today, except on
the South Carolina coast where
rain was in prospect.
The new snow threat caine as
traffic over highways and city
streets was Just getting back to'
a semblance of normal after three,
days work by thousands of men
at clearing the hampering white
Highway departments of tbe
two states and city street depart
ments bad run up bills of thous
ands of dollars for snow removal.
There was cheering news, how
I ever, for those shivering in unac
customed icy blasts that weather
forecast for today would be "not
so cold."
Temperature records of long
standing were broken at many
places in the Carolinas by the
mercury's drop early Tuesday.
Several points In North Carolina
had sub-iero readings.
It was minus five at Salisbury,
minus three at Winston-Salem and
minus two at North Wilkesboro.
Winston-Salem's reading was
the lowest In the 11 years that
records have been kept there.
? Other readings included Greens
boro one. Asheville 10, Charlotte
'16, Raleigh 18, Wilmington 22,
Spartanburg 15, Columbia 22,
Charleston 28 and Anderson nine.
The apparent wide discrepancy
In readings at points near each
other was explained by S. S. Sch
worm. meteorologist at Charlotte,
as a freak which sometimes oc
curs. *
Explaining, he said the cold de
scended at time in "spots" similar
to the way summer showers bring
good rains to one point and none
at all to another nearby. ? Wed

Louisburg People Respond
ed Generously to Needy
The Klwanis Club again this
year under-took to provHfe some
cheer and assistance to Santa
Claus. Needy families both In
town and county and of both races
were helped by the Club. Toys In
some instances were furnished by
the Louisburg Toy Mission. and
I in others by the Kiwanlans them
selves. Approximately thirty or
thirty fire families were taken by
the Klwanis Club.
A complete Hat of perhaps 7S
families was drawn up by repre
sentatives of the Welfare Depart
ment, Federal Agencies, the local ?"
Movie Fund, the public schools,
the Kiwania Club, and the Epis
copal Church. Private individuals,
these organizations and others, i
responded moat generously to all
"opportunities" offered on the llat.
More opportunities would have
been taken had they been known
and included.
The entire work was voluntary.
with a minimum of soliciting.
Many famlllea received not only
toys and fruit, but food and cloth
ing as well. Book slabs, churches,
and private Individuals took mt
cral opportunities that ,wer? J^ot
on a list. It >s believed that moat
of Franklin County's needy had
some remembrance before Christ
mas Day had passed. The Boy
Scouts aided greatly in the dis
tributing of the supplies.
