South Wmg Opens Second Floor August I
12 More Beds Available For Patients
The Duplin General Hospital Ad
ministration plans to open the sec
ond floor of the South wing of the
Hospital approximately on August
i. This will supply 12 more avail
able beds in the South wing, mak
ing a great difference, as there
were no vacancies before.
While the unit is not licensed as
? a nursing home, it does provide
' care similar to that of a nursing
home and equal to that of the hos
pital but less costly. For example, a
private room in this unit is $9.50 vs
$14.50 in the main hospital building.
Also, a semi-private room is $8.00
$8.50 in contrast to $11.50 in the
main hospital.
Patients admitted to the South
wing must be under a doctor's con
tinuous care and receiving medica
tion. It is anticipated that the pat
ients in the South wing are placed
there for a longer period than in
the main hospital and therefore, are
required to make an advance depos
it of $240 or at a rate of $8.00 a day,
minimum for a month. In many
cases, patients may be given cred
it for coverage with a reliable cred
it company.

Between the heat and busy peo

the county. The Sheriff's office
seems to have less calls when
everyone gets so busy. "Putting in

sad part for the farm wives is that
the majority of the canning season
hits at the same time as the tobacco
season. I don't see how in the wor

Duplin Farmers Lost $381,000
In Gasoline Tax Refunds Last Year
Judging by last year's experience,
farm families in Duplin County will
lose about $381,000 this year by fail
ing to apply for a tax refund on
gasoline used for non-highway pur
Statewide, the loss is expected
to reach around $11.6 million, which
would be nearly 70 per cent of the
money available for refunds.
Farmers are permitted by law to
receive a six-cent refund from the
state and a four-cent refund from
the federal government on each
gallon of gasoline they use in trac
tors and other equipment on the
To receive this refund, however,
a farmer must file an application
with both the U. S. and N. C. De
partments of Internal Revenue be
tween July 1 and Sept. 30 of each
year. Most farmers never go to the
trouble of claiming the money.
Figures on the loss estimates
were compiled by the N. C. Depart
ment of Internal Revenue and Jim
Allgood, extension farm manage
ment specialist at North Carolina
Farmers who filed for a refund
last year will automatically be
mailed a form for filing again this
year. Farmers who have not filed
for a refund previously can get the
necessary forms from their county
extension office, or by writing to
the N. C. Departmen tof Revenue,
Raleigh, and the U. S. Department
of Internal Revenue, Greensboro.
Record Flue-Cured Yield Expected for NC
RALEIGH, N. C., July - A record
flue-cured yield of 1,935 pounds per
acre is in prospect for North Caro
lina according to the first official
tobacco estimates for 1963 released
by the North Carolina Crop Report
ing Service. Such a yield would ex
ceed the previous record 1,890 pou
nds produced last year by 45 pou
nds. Under a five percent reduction
in flue-cured allotments, total pro
duction would amount to 887 million
pounds - 3 percent under the 1962
crop of 913 million pounds but 18
per cent above the 1957-61 average
of 753 million pounds.
Changes from last year in the
conditions for the Eastern Belt,
which contains the largest flue-cu
red acreage, are responsible for
the improved outlook. Last year the
eastern area was hit by devastating
floods along the coast and by ex
cessive rains in other localities As
a result," the Eastern Belt yfekf was
cut 155 pouadft below its i960 re
cord, whereas all-time record yields
were set in the other flue-cured
belts. The yield per acre of 2,190
pounds forecast for the Border Belt
is 125 pounds below last year's and
the 1,850 pounds forecast for the
Middle and Old 'Belts is off 10 pou
nds. In the Eastern Belt, however,
a prospective yield of 1,950 pounds
is 12S pounds above last year's thus,
bringing the estimated total flue
cured average to an all -time re
Droughty conditions delayed tra
nsplanting and resulted in uneven
and broken stands especially where
irrigation was not available. Good
stands, however, were finally ob
tained in practically all areas, but
growing plants have been hamper
ed by unusually cool weather, light
frost having hit many fields as late
as the first of May. Under these un
favorable conditions the older
stands of tobacco buttoned out per
maturely in all sections of the
State. Despite this and the sub
sequent failure of plants to put on
a maximum number of leaves the
crop is generally more uniform
than usual and is growing vigorous
Yield and production forecasts
for North Carolina by all types are
as follows:
Type 11: (Middle and Old Belts)
Production 334,830,000 pounds from
181,000 acres with a yield of 1,850
Type 12: (Eastern or New Bright
Belt) Production 432,900,000 pounds
from 222,000 acres yielding 1,950
Type 13: (Border Belt) Produc
tion 119,325,000 pounds from 55,500
acres with a yield of 2,150 pounds.
Type 31: (Burley Tobacco) Produ
ction 23,375,000 pounds from 11,000
acres with a yield of 2,125 pounds.
The national flue-cured crop is
estimated at 1,340,838,000 pounds
for a decrease of 5 percent from
the 1,408,448,000 pounds produced
last year.
Burley production, forecast at
670,375,000 pounds would be one per
cent below the 674,658,000 pounds
harvested in 1962.

Nematode Demonstration Held On
Jack Patterson Farm Last Tuesday
The Jack Patterson farm in Al
bertson Township was visited yes
terday (Tuesday) for a demonstra
tion test. Visiting the farm were
about 35 persons representing soil
fumigation ? soil fungicide chemi
cal companies doing research work
in the field of tobacco nematodes.
The itenerary for the tour of soil
fumigation and soil fumigation re
search was held on July 16 and 17
and included counties in the Border
and Eastern Tobacco Belts. The
group made stops in Cumberland,
Sampson, Duplin, Lenoir, Craven,
Wilson, Edgecombe, Greene and
Wayne counties. On Tuesday they
stopped for lunch in Kenansville.
The tour was sponsored primarily
by the N. C. Agriculture Extension
Service under the direction of
Furney Todd who is Pathologist for
the N. C. Extension Service. Most
of the people attending were man
ufacturers or representatives of
farm chemicals. Approximately
half of the group was from out of
state. Dr. Joe Sasser who was also
with them is State College and is
Assitant Professor of plant Patho
logy. His primary field heads up
Nematode work.
The farm of Jack Patterson was
the farm in Duplin which cooperat
ed with the soil fumigation demon
stration, on which new chemicals
for root knot nematode control in
tbacco was tried.
Most of the chemicals used have
not been released to the farmers
For the demonstration, five plots
were set up in one field of tobacco,
all fumigants were put out at the
same time and after a fourteen day
waiting period th tobacco was set
out on the plots at the same time.
Chemicals used on the five plots
were - Plot No. 1, Penphene at the
rate of three pounds per acre. Plot
No. 2, penphene at the rate of two
pounds per acre. Plot No. 3, no
treatment of any kind. Plot No. 4,
Vidden - D at the rate of ten gal
lons per acre. Plot No. 5, DCB-60,
at the rate of 10 gals, per acre.
Results shown from the five plots
were: Plot No. 1 with penphene at
the rate of three lbs. per acre show
ed no nematodes present today.
Plot No. 2, penphene at two pounds
per acre had just a slight sign of
infestation. Plot No. 3, having no
treatment showed serious Nema
tode trouble. Plot No. 4 with Viden
D, no Nematodes. Plot No. S, treat
ed with DCB-60, no Nematodes but
all tobacco died and had to be
replanted because of fumigation in
Other farms in Duplin County
have participated in experiments

Leaders Promote Fitness At Scout Camo
Leaders of the Camp Tuscarora
at Dudley conducted by the Tusr
carora Council of the Boy Scouts of
America are doing all they can in
building a stronger America thro
ugh building stronger men
Last year the Scout movement
launched a special year-round pro
gram to give boys of, this area
more opportunities todewlop the
kind of fitness they need, Dr. Tal
bot F. Parker, Goldsboro, Chairman
of the council's Health and Safety
Committee, said today.
"Physical fitness, Dr. Parker
said, "along with character build
ing and citizenship training have
been principal objectives of Scout
ing since it began in America in
1910. This is accomplished by our
activities, programs, and skills whi
ch are fun and natural for boys."
The "Fit for Tomorrow" program,
Dr. Parker said, includes a medi
cal checkup, physical testing, plen
ty of outdoor action and later, re
testing to check progress.
Learning to get along with others
is a by-product of this program.
Scouting activities at Scout camps
help boys to "grow up emotionally.'
First phase of the program is the
medical checkup required of every
boy as he goes to Scout camp. This
helps determine his need for exer
cise and assists camp leaders to de
termine each boy's fitness program
according to his abilities.
Physical testing enables a boy to
find out what he can do in compar
ison with others. These include sit
ups, pull-ups, standing broad jump,
fifty-yard dash, and 600-yard run
Exercise and vigorous physical
activities on hikes and in Scout
camps make up the third phase of
the program.
Periodic retesting using the same
tests measure the boy's growth and
need for further development.
The regular summer camp .pro
gram includes a variety of physical
activiites-beginning with walking
