Plan ahead, figuring how to
get things done before necessity

Complete soil conservation
plans were made last week on
the following farms: L. D. Mul
len, Zebulon, Route 2; Luther
Boldeu, Spring Hope, Route 1;
and A. P. Johnson, Louisburg.
M. H. Hunt planted 50 lbs. of
wild winter pea last November
and in spite of the late planting
and the extreme dry weather had
a fair stand. The peas are now
ready to combine and should
yield * two to three hundred
pounds of seed on the two acres.
Mr. Hunt says that he will save
the seed if he can get them com
bined, otherwise he plans to let
them reseed again next year. The
wild winter pea is similar to the
Austrian winter pea but in many
cases has given much better re
sults and consistantly yields
In the spring of 1941 the CCC
boys from the Nashville Camp
planted kudzu on the banks of
the newly constructed Pilot to
Smithfield Highway where it cut
through the H. P. Jeans farm one
mile south of Pilot. Mr. Jeans
has cultivated the kudzu for two
seasons and this spring the sides
of the fifteen foot cut are almost
completely covered by the luxur
iant green vines. Mr. Jeans says
that he doesn't have to worry
now about the soil from his tot
ton fields washing down into the
roadside ditch, the kudzu is hold
ing it back in his fields.
Many coveys of birds and nu
merous young rabbits have been
seen recently on farms in Frank
lin County. Possibly the short
age of gun shells during the last
hunting season has had a lot to
do with this increase of wildlife
in the county.

Schenectady, N. Y., June 16. ? ;
About 3,500,000 crop corps work
ers will be needed this year to |
help American farmers "to pro
duce the greatest crops In his-|
tory," Earl J. Cooper of Chicago,,
livestock representative of the|
Country Gentleman magazine, de
clared in a General Electric Farm
Forum address here.
Mr. Cooper said that "the
goals for 1943 have been increas
ed to a great degree, and it is
figured that at least 25 per cent
of our food this year must go for
our own fighting forces and for
Lend-Lease." He asserted each
of our fighting men consumes
5 1-2 pounds of food a day.
"It takes the food from 155
acres to feed the workers who
build one bomber and requires!
55 acres for the men who build
one medium tank," he continued.
"Workers who build a 35,000-ton
battfeship consume the food pro
ducts of 42,000 acres.
"Now add to these figures the!
millions of us who are engaged]
in the regular duties of life, and
we have a picture of what our
farmers must accomplish this
Many thousands of boys from|
the cities and small towDs have
agreed to help the farmers this
summer, according to Mr. Coop
er. "This year more than one
million organized Boy Scouts will
join the United States Crop
Corps as volunteers," he said.
"In many 'sections of the coun
try, twilight armies consisting of
businessmen will join the crop
corps in the evenings."
