There are reasons for a "draft
Doughton for Governor" movement.
Since the 1940 primary, things
haven't gone so well inside the
Democratic party in North Caro
lina. Many wounds have been
healed, at least to all appearances,
but some of the enemies of Gov
ernor Broughton are laying for
whomever he supports in the 1944
governorship primary when the

a secret, made the statement that
it must cost "about $40 of the

rumor about the establishment of

He said sometimes as long as
two hours is spent in tracking
down one rumor. Several divisions
of the War Department must be

time means money.

Orders for Austrian winter peat
for use as a winter legume now
are being accepted at the Hay
wood county AAA office, according
to H. R. Clapp, county agent.
Notice has been received that
eight cars of peas have been ship
ped to North Carolina, and it is
expected that all orders which
are placed will be Ailed by early '
September, the chairman said.
The peas may be obtained as
grant-of-aid material without an
outlay of cash, and costs of seed
and freight are deducted from
arty payments due the farmer
under the agricultural conserva
tion program. The price is $6.83
per 100 pounds.
''Seeding of Austrian winter
peas is doubly important to farm
ers of Haywood county this year.
Shortages of commercial nitrates
will make it necessary for farmers
to store as much natural nitrogen
in their soil as possible through
use of legume crops. We are en
traced in our biire-pst Bo-ricultural
I nrodurtion Timcrriim nnA uta ninat
keep our soil in condition to pro
duce as much food and fibre as the
nation needs as long as necessary."
He also urged farmers to take
advantage of the offer of Austrian
winter peas in view of the fact
that other legume crop seed may
not be available this year. Furth
er details on prices and placing
orders, he said, may be obtained
at the county AAA office.
