REVIEW OF TPA
(Continued from Page One)
of the women assigned to these
projects knew little or nothing of
needlecraft, most oi them had nev
er made the simplest articles of
clothing for their own families,
hence it became the duty of super
visors to acquaint themselves with
the personal characteristics of each.
A training period of one hour a
day was inaugurated in sewing
rooms, during which the intricacies
of home management, child nutri
tion and care of the body were
tnntrht workers. Pre-natal clinics
were established in larger, relief
centers, and sufferers from social
diseases given treatment. Women
not adapted to the use of a needle
were weeded from sewing rooms
and assigned to other projects. Re
creation, now -directed in the state
by Miss Ronie Sheffield, took care
of several hundred workers talent
ed in this line of endeavor. Those
persons partially skilled in clerical
work were assigned to county and
city offices'; cleaning and. renovat
ing projects were brought into be
ing for the lower types, those
whose advanced age made it im
possible for them to ocquire a skill.
Adult education, which is now sup
ervised by Mrs. Elizabeth C. Mor
riss.gave employment to hundreds
of teachers who had been unable
to acquire employment in state
schools, and many thousands of
illiterates have been taught to
read and write . in classes taught
by them. Women now engaged in
sewing rooms arc seamstresses of
considerable skill, and exceptionally
fine, garments are being produced
Gardening and Canning Projects
Gardening and canning projects
are being started in all sections
of the state by Works Progress
Administration, and thousands of
cans of fruit and vegetables will
be preserved during the summer
season for distribution to the poor
during the fall and winter. A state
wide library project, which will
emphasize extension work rather
than bookmending, is being insti
tuted this week.
Under the supervision of Miss
Helen Rhinhardt, assistant director
of Women's and Professional pro
jects, five S-day forewoman train
ing conferences have just been con
cluded in district offices attended
by district, area and county sup
ervisors. Courses incfuded the keep
ing of reports, planning of personal
work schedules, outlining project
activities, maintaining production
standards, discipline of -.workers,
arjd. planning and conducting a
training program for project fore
women and workers. These district
meetings are being followed up by
training conferences in individual
counties. According to Miss Rhin
hardt, attendance at these meetings
has been excellent.
Mrs. Campbell, who by training
and experience is well equipped for
the position she holds, is highly
pleased with the cooperation she
has received from sponsoring
groups throughout the state. Rents,
lights and water' have, in all in
stances, been provided by sponsors.
"The result of our giving work re
lief," said Mrs. Campbell, "is now
plainly written on the faces .of
thousands of women who have
been enabled to maintain them-'
selves and their dependents in a
world of economic uncertainty.
we have been afforded opportunity
to initiate our women into the mys
teries of budgeting scanty family
incomes, to help them convert drab
huts into cheerful homes, to renew
their interest in life and living."
The farmers of this section are
taking advantage of the beautiful

Water Pumps Itself
With Hydraulic Ram
"Water will pump itself into
your home if you give it a chance,"
Said E. H. Garrison, . Jr., Afoore,
county farm agent of the State col
lege extension service.
"A little hydraulic ram costing
from $15 to $36 will do the trick,"
he pointed out.
The ram pumps contrnuously and
the water can "be stored in a large
barrel or a tank from which it can
be drawn into the house as needed.
To function properly, a ram needs
,a flow of water from a spring at
the rate of not much less than
three gallons per minute.
Where there i.s a fair flow of
water from the spring, Garrison
Pointed out, a ram will pump water
a long way and up a high hill. One
of the Afoore county rams pumps
watc a distance of 700 feet and
rp 'a hill 85 feet above the level
if. the spring.
A ram will last almost indefinate
ly. Some are still going strong after
50 years of continuous operation
"This is about the cheapest water
supply I know of," he said, "and
one of the most satisfactory."
As long as the rams keep pump
ing, he added, they will not freeze
in winter. - ,
Make Large Gullies
Great gullies from little rivulets'
grow, but according to W. A H.
Cato of the soil conservation ser
vice, a few boughs from the pine
or cedar tree," when properly placed
at intervals in small gullies, will
prevent small gullies from becom
III - f t " ?
Cato advised that the brush dams
be spaced at vertical Intervals of
12 inches in small gullies . three or
four feet deep and less than, six
feet wide. For instance, if the gully
has a fall of eight, feet in the hun
dred, the brush dams would be
spaced every 12 feet, or eight dams
in 100 feet.
The boughs should be placed with
the butts upstream and covered
lightly with soil. Where a'consid
erable amount of water flows down
the gully, it is a good plan to
stabilize the .brush by driving into
the ground to a depth of 12 to 18
inches a cedar stake, attached with
wire or nails to 'a cross-bar.
, Brush check dams have . been
built on more than 50 per cent of
the farms in the Huntersville ero
sion control project, Cato said, and
they have proven very effective in
reclaiming gullied areas.
Where the farmer has plenty of
hay-baling wire or old barbed wire
and a convenient supply of pine J
or cedar boughs, he can place the
brush in the gullies and stabilize
them with the wire staked down
at each end.
