    Applications For
Farm Buildings To
Be Filed With AAA
Under the Veteran's housing
program,' designed primarily to
furnish housing for veterans,
restrictions have been placed on
the construction of buildings
costing more than $400, Robert
Fulton, chairman of the Macon
County AAA committee, said
this week in explaining that
the main objective of the re
strictions at this time is to get
low-cost living units built as
rapidly as possible.
"Applications for the con
struction of all farm buildings
in Macon County should be
field at the local AAA office,"
Mr. Fulton said, "and the final
approval of the applications
rests with the State AAA com
mittee in Raleigh.
"Data such as materials need
ed. total cost of all new mate
rials. labor costs, and the ne
cessity for the buildinewJU be
requested." Mr. Fulton jfJfpTain
The AAA chairman pointed
, out that approval of the pro
posed construction will be based
on whether it is essential to
increasing or maintaining pro
duction of food on the farm;
whether present facilities on the
farm are being utilized to max
imum capacity; and whether the
proposed construction will be
fully utilized upon completion.

State College Answers
Timely Farm Questions
Q. What is the besi means of
controlling the cabbage or 'ter
rapin" bug?
A. James T. Conner, Jr., new
extension entomologist at State
college, says that the relatively
new sabadilla dust in 10 and 20
per cent solutions for applica
tion now to cabbage, collard,
turnip and other leafy crops is
the best controlling agent. The
10 per cent dust is best for in
festations by older bugs. The 20
per cent dust for hewer infesta
tions. Dusting now will -control
the bugs which strike hardest
during June, July and August.
Q. May home-grown strawber
ry plants be used successfully in
this state?
A. Yes, decidedly. Growers in
[ the Chadburn- Wallace area lost
more than $100,000 in this year's
crop by importing strains of
which proved to be sterile but
which had been advertised as
J "improved" types of established
| varieties. Home-grown plants
will be highly satisfactory pro
vided inspections for the con
j trol of disease and insects are
! properly made.
Q. Why are North Carolina
poultrymen having trouble get
ting chicks from the Rice Leg
horn farm in Missouri?
A. Because that firm does not
yet have the proper labels or
j pullorum control certificates
? from the Missouri . Livestock
Sanitary Board. North Carolina
law requires certification that
chicks brought into the state
| shall have less than two per
cent pullorum infection. The
same requirements are appli
cable to state hatcheries.
To the Democratic Voters
of Macon County:
As you see in another column
of The Franklin Press, I am
seeking the nomination for
Representative in the next Gen
eral Assembly of North Caro
lina. Before I decided to make
this race I was asked by good
citizens of almost every district
in the county to make the race.
I am 63 years old and for 42
years I have voted and worked
for the Democratic Party in
. Macon County and anywhere
that party felt the need of my
service, even two or three trips
to Raleigh oil my own pocket
book. And as a result of such
work and cooperation with the
Democratic Party, I have lived
to see our good state climb to
a much higher place among the
other states of the Union.
I know and you know that
a Representative can do only a
limited amount during a session
of the Legislature and I have
been asked many questions
about what I would do should
I go. And I feel that it's as
much in what I don't do or
undo as what I do in new leg
islation. My answer to some was
that it would be better for my
wife to tie me in the chimney
corner during the Legislature
than to pass some, not all, of
the Laws that have been pass
ed the last 12 to 15 years.
Should I be the successful
candidate, I shall feel that I
am a servant of the people of
Macon County and shall call to
gether a representative body of
citizens from, every district in
the county to the courthouse
between the election and the
meeting of the assembly that we
may discuss .the various needs
of the county, that I may know
what the people really want,
then go to Raleigh with a de
termination to pass some of the
most needful, constructive laws.
I have been asked many times
how I stand on the following
No. 1. Old Age and Dependent
Children's Assistance.
Ans. I favor making up bud
get to properly care for all on
the list, then adding to the
budget enough to care for
emergency cases that come up
between the time of making out
the budget.
No. 2. In Regard to Sheriff's
Pay Should the Office Change
Ans. I had nothing to do with
its passing and shall leave it as
it is, regardless of who may be
elected sheriff.
No. 3. The Question of Beer
and Wine.
Ans. I believe our Governor
said he would give us a refer
endum on beer and wine six
months after, peace was de
clared. The terrible guns of
war have hushed their roar and
I can't see any reason for wait
ing longer and I favor a refer
endum on beer and wine. Now,
not sometime in the far future,
let the people say what they
No. 4. School Bus Drivers.
Ans. I am in favor and shall
fight tor a school bus driver
not to be paid less than $50
per month. That said driver
shall be 21 or more years old,
of good morals, and a total ab
stainer from strong drink.
No. 5. Roads.
Ans. I shall do all that with
in one lies to get a gravel road
through all the communities,
large and small in Macon Coun
ty at the earliest possible time.
We all know that the SHC has
done wonders in building roads
for the last 20 years, or more.
Also we know the last four
years we all had to give all our
attention to the winning of the
war, but that is over and these
rural roads should have some
thing done and done now. ' And
leave the highways alone, only
the patching crew. The products
of our farms and forests are
needed; let's have a road to
No. 6. Teacher Retirement
Ans. While the school teach
ers only get a meager living
while on active duty in the
school room I feel that they
should have more than that $1
per day retirement that should
read at least $1.50 per day, and
$2 would be more like it.
No. 7. Board of Education.
Ans. The way I feel about this
jis: that these five men should
I be of our best. They should
| know the value of a dollar
] spent in a school, building,
roofing, lumber, roads, grading,
! house seats, school supplies, or
for any other school purposes
j whatsoever, and as they are
' going to have to spend a lot of
j time in the next two to four
years working out our school
I program, I favor paying them
for every hour spent on their
official duty in behalf of the
school children of Macon Coun
I ty. We have a big problem be
fore us. No one man in the
county or out is competent to
spend a half million dollars of
tax money, but six level heads
with the hearty cooperation of
the citizens of the county can
carry it out to a final and glor
ious conclusion that will be a
monument to our good county
and place us up in rank with
other good conties of the
In closing let me say I will
be glad to answer any and all
questions and I hope to your
satisfaction. In order that you
may know my feelings toward
North Carolina, I give you the
Since back in the days of
Aycock old Tar Heel has done
its best. I hardly think that
she's surpassed in North, South,
or West With education, health
industry, highways, farming.
Let's keep her marching on.
Here's hoping that all get reg
istered properly on the books.'
And that you go to the polls
and cast your ballot. If for me,
I will do my best to serve you
to the very best of my ability.
You, the voters, prescribe and
I will take the medicine, even
though it be bitter. (Closed
with my theme song) I want to
go there, I do.

State College Hints
To Farm Homemakers
N. C. State College
Lost buttons, especially those
torn out of garments, add
greatly to the burden of family
mending in many households.
Spring and summer qlothes of
thin fabric are likely to suffer
most from buttons that pull
out, taking some of the fabric
underneath with them. A simple
way to prevent such damage,
clothing specialists suggest, is to
stitch tape on the inside of the
garment under the button line.
The stitched reinforcement does
not show when the garment is
buttoned and distributes the
strain so that the small area of
cloth to which the button is
attached does not take the full
pull. Stitch down each edge of
the tape, then sew buttons
through the center part of the
On rayon clothes such a tape
will prevent the damage that
often comes from pressing too
hard or with too hot an iron
under buttons.
Rural electrification special
ists advise that electric irons
always should be disconnected
properly after use to keep them
in good working order. Pull on
the plug that fits into the con
venient outlet in the wall, never
on the cord. Pulling on the cord
may loosen the connections
within the plug or even pull
out the wires. A loose connec
tion may either blow a fuse or
cause excessive heat, which in
time will ruin the plug.
If the iroii cord is detach
able, connect and disconnect it
at the convenience outlet rath
er than at the iron. Disconnect
ing the cord from the iron
while the current is on may
cause sparking. This in time will
' ruin the plug and may require
replacing the connector term
inals on the iron ? a repair job.
