planted in North Carolina in Bertie
County. They were known as
"Japan peas," says Worthington.
This State, which last year
produced more lespedeza seed for
sale than any other area except
Missouri, can thank Japan for
sending the Kobe and Korean
varieties to the United States. W.
H. Darst, head of the State Seed
Laboratory, says that Dr. Ralph
G. Miller sent the first Korean
Lespedeza, while J. B. Norton, of
the U. S. Department of Agriculture,
discovered the Kobe species
while walking in the hills near
the city of Kobe, Japan. This
variety was developed by the
Coker Seed Company, in Hartsville,
S. C? around 1923.

At one important road junction
at St. Quentin near Cambrai, the
Germans and the American columns
were trying to use the same
junction and a brisk fight ensued.
Capt. Williamson, noticing
the hold-up, landed his plane in
a nearby field and went out to
see what was happening. After
he had gathered- his information,
he returned to his plane with the
Germans in hot pursuit and took
off under a hail of small arms
fire to radio the information.
Before entering the army he
was in business at Hickman's
Cross Roads. It is understood he
may locate at Shallotte following
his discharge at Fort Bragg.
