quires an adequate acreage of
supplemental grazing crops as
well as permanent pastures, ac
cording to the District Supervis
ors of the Tar River Soil Conser
On many farms good perma
nent pasture can be developed by
clearing shrubby growth from
idle lowland areas and seeding
the land to adapted grasses and
legumes. The clearing work can
be done during the winter months
or at times when it is too wet
to do other farm work.
Similarly areas of steep land
not suited to the production of
row crops can be planted to kud
zu or Bericea lespedeza, which
will provide a permanent source
of supplemental grazing and pre
vent overgrazing of the pasture.
The sericea will furnish early
spring grazing and the kudzu can
be used to relieve permanent pas
tures during the late summer and
fall drought^. This will Increase
the carrying capacity of the regu
lar pasture and lengthen the

A dog story with
a happy ending
Lem Martin's dog went on a
rampage last week. ..killed four
of Ed Carey's best hens.
Naturally, Ed was pretty mad.
Went around vowing he was go
ing to get his shotgun and blow
the blazes out of Lem's dog when
he saw him. And Lem says, "Let
him try it and J'll blow the blazes
out of htm. Ought to keep his
chickens locked up, anyhow."
Bat Ed and Lem are really
mighty sensible fellows. And
the whole thing was settled
when Lem Invited Ed over for a
glass of beer, and they sat aronnd
chatting over the quarrel m It It
were a kind of Joke.
"Shucks," says Ed, "the*
hens didn't amount to much no
how." And Lem says: "Just the
same I'm bringin' you a barrel
o' apples to pay for 'em."
From where I sit, It would be
a lot better for the world If folks
would settle their arguments
peaceful-like? sitting around
over a friendly glass of beer?
instead of going off half-cocked,
and making mountains out ef

War is a long way from North Carolina
? but in so many ways if a mighty close
to us. Our men are fighting all over the
world ? our factories and farms are
producing an endless stream of supplies
our troops depend upon. But even that
isn't all ? it wouldn't be enough!
We have so much more to do right
here in North Carolina ? jobs that are
up to all of us, jobs that must be well
done. In the 4th War Bond Drive, for
instance, North Carolinians bought
$172,000,000 worth ? 37% above our
quota ? but we're keeping right on buy
ing more and morel We've gladly given
, our money to the Red Cross ? and hun
dreds of thousands of hours of our time
to making surgical dressings and kits for
our men overseas.
We've supported and worked for the
U.S.O. and various war relief groups.
We've built and maintained an efficient
Civilian Defense organization. We've
collected scrap and rubber, tin and fats.
Whatever has been asked, North Caro
lina has done ? and then some!
The men and women of the Greyh- .
Lines* like their fcllow-citizens of Kortb
Carolina, have shared in all of thr-se
activities. They've also shared in the
vital job of moving wartime manpower
?in uniform or in work clothes. On
special occasions they've transported
U.S.O. Camp Shows and brought part
ners to camp dances. Greyhound buses
? by making near neighbor* and good
neighbors of all the communities they
serve in this State ? by linking cities,
war plants, farm centers, and military
