Among Friends Of The Soil
(Editor's note: This Is No." *3
In a series to show you Soil Con-'
servation District technicn at;
work with local farmers and how
he can help you as a farmer.)
Last week Farmer A found his
field which he had thought of |
draining with tile had too tight
a subsoil to drain well that way. j
The technician suggested most of,
the water which made the spot in'
question wet ran down on it J
from up-slope and might be cut j
off before it go there. Farmer A1
wanted to know how he would j
go about that.
Technician .'In order to save
damage to this part of the field j
from water which drains down!
from above I would suggest two'
things: First. I would terrace the
field between here and the house.
Then I would lay the rows par
allel to the terrace. The terraces
can take all the water Into that

Here ia a little channel cut in

Farmer A. "Maybe a terrace
or two would help, but I don't
want crooked rows."

the rows after they were run.
The curve would be gentle and
there is nothing wrong with rows
like that. We have here an ex

to gain conservation by treating
just a field or two here and
there. The way the District works
is to treat a farm as a unit. Then

BEER?America's Beverage of Moderation
Because It Helps You!
Solid success has rewarded oar program to raise the standard of
beer retailing in our state?success, we feel, that stems largely from
the benefit it brings the North Carolina public.
Such a program aids law-enforcement agencies in controlling tha
few dealers who do not conform to the laws you have made. It serves
by safeguarding the millions in taxes contributed by the brewing
industry to our State treasury and to the counties and municipali
ties wherein beer is licensed to be sold. It reduces tha problems
of licensing and regulation.
A program good for you is good for us, too. And we gladly affirm that
the cooperation you are giving is our strongest support.

Wylie Hold? That Modern
Life Denies Child's Natu
ral Rights To Act Im
"Hie past 50 years of what w?
call civilization have ruined ur
ban childhood," declared Philip
Wylie in The Reader's Digest.
"The automobile, restricting child
ren to yard or block, has condi
tioned their very Impulse to chase
a ball. Parents, trying to barri
cade their children from perils
have fenced in schoolyards and
hired more cops at corners, more
counselors at camp. As soon as
he can crawl, the child is im
pounded In a playpen which frus
trates his every vital instinct."
In an article condensed from
The Atlantic Monthly, Wylie holds
that only through "a process of
adventure, experience and ex
ploit" can a child become an emo
tionally mature and self-reliant
adult. But fearful parents, instead
of aiding this process, inhibit its
development by over-protection.
Many parents, In the artificial
life of our urban centers, are
themselves lacking in basic ex
perience, Wylie contends. "They
join welfare and hygiene societies,
but have never seen a chicken
killed or a kitten born. TTiey cross
the Atlantic, but they eannot
swim. They have slept in hotels
in Cairo and Bombay, but never
in the woods. They drive to the
[top of Pike's Peak, but they have
never ahinnied a tree."
| Without such basic experience,
adults lack self-reliance, the au
thor maintains. Adult fears, rang
ing from an anxiety about cross
ling the street to panic over the
(possibility of another war, are
| projected upon children, in the
Ishape of parental tabus and re
strictions of the very activities
I essential to youngsters. Cited as
