“Farm Bureau^nembership com

listing new members to boost the
62,657 members to -166,066 by
November 15;” he said, “However,
this task is of such importance
that -wepan’t be content to let just
a few do the work. If a commit
teeman does not call on you, do
yourself a favor and look one up.
The campaign means much to the
future of the farmers of North
Carolina. If we farmers are to
be represented properly before
our state and national legislative
bodies, we should see to it that
the Farm Bureau can point to a
memibership so large that there

A last minute reminder to all
Hoke County peanut growers was
issued today by T. D. Potter,
Chairman of the County Agri—
cultral Conservatio.n Committed.
“October 1 is tliB deadline,” the
chairman said, “for returning the
Questionnaires on peanut acreages
and production which were sent
from the Agricultural Conserva
tion office. Infomation needed by
the county office for establiisbing
peanut acreage allotments^ on each
farm in 1948 will be taken from
-f&cts furnished by the farmers
themselves. These questionnaires
also establish each grower’s right”
to vote in the coming referen-r,
The chairman explained that,
if the county committee does not
have complete information on a
certain farm by the time allot
ments are established,' that allot
ment must be made from the lim
ited county reserve. Failure to file
the questionnaire by October 1
may result in smaller allotments
for some farms.
Whether marketing quotas and
acreage allotments are to be in
effect next year will depend upon
the results of the referendum , to
be held later this year, the chair
man ^points out. The referehdum
date wijl be announced shortly.
’The county office then will noti
fy fanners of . voting places, and
provide other information about
the referendum. ■ .
Announcement was made today
of the appointment of Louis G.
MoGill, Anderson, S. C- as Field
Representative of the Carolimas’
Ginners A^ociation to conduct
a general survey of all gins in the
Carolinas and Virginia. This sur
vey will enable the organization
tq provide improved service to
ginners and cotton farmers alike
In announcing the appointment,
George T. Ashford, President of
the Association, said Mr. McGill
will study types of equipment,
building and q'jerations now em
ployed and interviiew farmers and
ginners to obtain a cross-section
of ideas on how the group may
better serve them. Mr. McGill,
Ashford added, will inquire par
ticularly into ginning methods in
an effort to coordinate the better
features of various systems and
recommend them for wider use.
“This survey,” Ashford said,
“will be thorough and painstak
ing. The Carolinas’ Ginners As
sociation is eager to provide the
best service possible to ginners
and cotton'farmers. We feel that
through such a study the Asso
ciation will be far more adequate
ly prepared to recommend im
provements in ginning that will
assure farmers proper handling
of their products'and give ginners
additional incentive to process cot
ton more rapidly and efficiehtly.”

Tobacco famers should begin
selecting and preparing their
plant bed site if they plan to tireat
for weed coritrol. The material
should be applied at least 90 days
before seeding. Two different
treatments are recommended. Ap
ply 1. pound of' eyanamid ' per
square yard, or use 1 pound of
uramon and one-half pound of
eyanamid per square yard. The
latter treatment is recommended
especially on permanent plant
ed sites as it will help control
diseases as, well as weeds.
Winter and spring ^jHihg crops
can relieve the. short feed crop.
Plant ext'ra acreage. Plant early
and 'fertilize with 300 pounds of
4-10-6 per acre. Use sufficient
seed to insure i good stand. Top
dress with nitrogen sooh after the'
crop is up to a good stand.
About 60 acres of hybrid seed
corn is being grown in Hoke Coun
ty this year. The bulk of it will go
to a large seed producer in Indi
ana. This seed supply -wiE help
relieve the shortage of hybrid
seed in that a^ea.
Tobacco prices were generally
unsettled during recefH weeks.-
Most famiers report' satisfactory
sales on the middle belt_rnarkets.
By the way, a good project for
