Duplin Roads Are
' During the week the' writer has
had to trave over several of the
dirt ' roads , of t Duplin County.
These roads have the twashboard"
effect on the car as it moves over
the surface and makes riding ra-
thor uncomfortable. Several wash
outs at bridges have been neglect"
ed since the rains and a stick is
found stuck in the washout warn
ing the traveler that he must pot
cross that .side of the birdge. ' If
these roads could be dragged and
a few necessary1 repairs be 'made
at these bridges, 1 much could be
added to the Comfort and-safety
of travel. . H
The writer has had occasion to
travel one certain road in the
County, for the past six years at
regular Intervals and finds that, a
hole in tba road that was there six
years ago is, still there today.
There is some comfort in know
ing that the hole will be in the
same place and the driver will
know when to slow down and pre
pare for the Jolt.'

RALEIGH, N. C. Oct. 10th.
Special efforts are being made by
the "Resettlement Administration
to aid low-Income farmers in Nor
th Carolina, according to announc
ement from Homer H. B. Mask, of
Raleigh, Regional Director of Ru
ral Resettlemen for the states of
Kentucky, North Carolina, Ten
nessee, Virginia and West Vir
ginia. "There are more than 50,000
farm families in North Carolina
that have a gross income of less
than $400 a year," Mr. Mask said.
"This small sum includes the value
of what is used at home for food
and feed, as well as what is sold
for cash. With such limited in
comes, It is difficult for these farm
families to buy the food items that
are necessary for a healthy diet,
and virtually impossible for them
to acquire land of their own.
' ''In extending aid to these peo
ple," Mask continued, "it will be
the policy of the Resettlement Ad
ministration to seek permanent re
habilitation . of the borrowers by
establishing them on farms which
together with other available em
ployment, will yield" income enough
to make them self-sustaining, give
them an acceptable , standard of
living, and permit amortization of
weir loans." j, s ,rtl -f
Those eligible for loans, lh addl
t'oa to thoso -recently registered
as borrowers from State Rural Re
habilitation Corporations, include:
farm owners, farm tenants, farm
laborers, share croppers, or per
sons who were recently in any of
the foregoing classes, and other
persons with farming experience
who are or were recently on reliel
The eligible list also includes
those who are in default in pay
ments to a Federal Land Bank and
are in danger of foreclosure and
eviction, and those who are in de
fault of the Farm Credit Admin
istration or its agencies, or have
been denied credit by it. The list
is still further broadened to in
clude those found by the Reset
tlement Administration to be sim
ilarly in need of aid, and authority
is given to regional directors ot
Rural Resettlement to accept oth
er persons consistent with the pur
poses that 'guide Resettlement
"These accepted must have ini
tiative and resourcefulness, some
managerial capacity, and ability
to profit front instruction and gui

years, depending upon tbs charac

Reports that scrap tobacco has -bee
nsold this season by noma , ,
contracting growers indicate that
these growers do not fully under
stand the provisions of the fine-, a. ,
cured contract, said J. B. Hutson,
chief of Tobacco Division, '. in a
letter issued October 1st. Contract
ing growers who sell scrap or any ,
otbar to bacco this season for leas ' '
than 5 cents per pound probably
will lose money by making the .... .
sale. The reasons for this are as v
(1) The contract provides that
all tobacco, including scrap, -produced
on and sold from the , '
farm oi a contracting grower
must be entered on allotment ' .
cards and covered by tax-payment
warrants obtained trom
agents in tobacco warehouses, j
(2) If a grower sells tobacco in f
excess of 85 percent of hlu
base production, it will bsrr
necessary for him to obtain
more than 5 cents per pound ..K
in order to offset the reduc
tion in the adjustment pay
ment. ' .
(3) The sale of tobacco without
having it covered by tax - ": : .
payment warrants makes the
grower liable for the return
of all payments under his con
tract and the value of the tax
payment warrants issued to
(4) A contracting grower with
unused allotment may be able
to sell this allotment to ano
ther contracting grower hav
ing excess production through
the County Agent's office at
4 cents per pound.
Before selling the unused allot
ment, the grower must sell all of
the tobacco produced under his
contract including low grade or
scrap tobacco, retain a sufficient
portion of the allotment to sell all
of such tobacco, or render the un
sold tobacco unmerchantable. All
scrap tobacco which is not sold
mi'.st be rendered unmerchantable
before complaince with the provi
sions of the contract can be cer
tified. This tobacco may be len-
dered unmerchantable by spread
ing it on the land and uiscing It
in or by mixing a sufficient quan
tity of lime with the tobacco.
Scrap tobacco which growers
cannot afford to sell may be used
profitably for fertilizer on land
which is not suited for tobacco.
The use of this tobacco on land to
be planted to tobacco might re
sult in the spread of plant disea
ses which would cause serious los
ses in succeeding crops, nor should
scrap tobacco be used on or around
seed beds. Excellent results may be
expected from use of low-grade to
bacco for fertilizing truck crops.
Such tobacco may also be used as
an insecticide for spraying poultry
houses and similar uses, by boiling
it and spraying with the extract.
In order that growers may not
unknowingly violate their contract
your cooperation is requested in
getting the facts in this letter to
other contracting growers. If a
person offers to buy scrap tobacco
from you, his name and the license
number on his truck should be ob
tained and turned over to the
