; Carry On aa Planned.
. Dr. G. V. Gooding, for the past
4 years member of the State High
way Commission from this dist
rict, resigned his position last
Saturday. Governor Cherry, in an
nouncing the resignation at the
same time announced the appoint
ment of James A. Bridger of Bla
denboro to fill his place.
Dr. Gooding gave Governor
Cherry as his reason for resign
ing the fact that the work de
manded too much of his time. He
said he found it impossible to
keep up his practice and devote
the time necessary to carry on the
work of the highway job.
He stated to the Times this
week that very definitely highway
111 would be paved as now sur
veyed and that the new commiss
ioner had pledged to him that road
work in Duplin will be looked af
ter in every respect. The letting
of the contract for highway 111
will be done at the next meeting
after the one next week, which
probably will be in the spring.

WiU be Notified as to time and
Place to Vote; Farmers are
Urged to Vote.
Over 35$,000 Tar Heel farmers
will have the opportunity on Nov
ember 30 to go to the polls and
elect more than 9,000 active far-
mers who will sit down with them
and help plan a conservation pro
gram based on actual needs of
their farms to speed reconverslos
of the State's farmland from the
strain of wartime production, R.
Flake Shaw, Secretary, North
Carolina Farm Bureau Federation, .
pointed out this week.
"A large 'vote of confidence'
will enable elected AAA Commit
teemen to do their job with the
knowledge that their neighbors
are supporting them", Shaw said.
"One of the main programs that
the newly elected AAA Commit
teemen will administer during the
coming year is the 1946 Agricul
tural Conservation Program", fee
declared. "The conservation pro
gram, this year, has been central
ized, with counties and crwi,I ;v-L. '
ties allocated tuJJ
their own soil and water conser--W"Jaoi;

"To speed reconversion of the
State's farmland from the strain
of wartime production, the most
capable farm leadership in the
counties and communities an
needed," he explained.
"The AAA always has taken the ' i
position that those operations
which are intimately tied up with
the farmer's economic welfare can i' '

mer himself. Many grave problems
lie ahead for agriculture and I
hope that every eligible farmer in
the State will attend his local
electeion meeting and voice his
opinion for the men of his choice
to represent him considering the
problems and demands of the
coming year," Shaw concluded.
Every farmer in the State will
receive a notice as to the time and
place of the election meeting in
his community.
Every eligible farmer In North
Carolina should attend the elect
ion and take part in naming his
AAA committeemen for the com
ing year, I. O. Schaub, director,
State Extension Service said.
One of the most important jobs
facing the newly elected commit
teemen will be to determine best
practices to meet the needs of the
county and distribute the alloca
tion of funds that has been allot
ted so that individual farms will
receive conservation assistance
based on actual needs. Besides
helping farmers select practices
that will speed reconversion of
farmland from the strain of war
time production, AAA committee
men will be faced with other post
war problems, such as crop prices,
marketing difficulties, and pro-
auction adustment
"Due to the magnitude of th.
problems, the men elected at these
meetings should have the confi
dence and support of every eligible
farmer," Schaub said.
Approximately 350,000 Tar Heel
farmers are eligible to cast bal
lots in the 1,733 AAA Community
Elections. Eligibility to vote is re
