February 17-22 has been designated as adult membership week and all citizens who will are asked to join and thus show their interest in the youth who will benefit so greatly from the Scout or ganization.

Eagles, as sistant farm agent of Mar tin. County. • Fanners of Johnson County are thinking more in terms of soil-building than they ever have before, reports R. M. Holder, as sistant farm agent of the N. C. State College Exten sion Service. RED-EYEI) TOWHEE ’V" Many birds are responsi ble for their own names, the Bob-white and the Whip-poor-will being ex amples. Students of nature interpret the call of the Towhee differently. To some it seems to say “Tow hee,” to , others “Jo-ree,” and to others *,Chewink.” Hence so many names. The American Ornithologists’ Union finally agreed to the name “Towhee.” The neck, head, bill and back of the male are black; the wings are black with white margins; the tail is black, the three outer fea thers being tipped with white. The sides are red dish-brown ; the breast is white. The color of the fe male is similar to that of the male except that the black of the male is replac ed by brown in the plumage of the female. At one time the Towhee was considered a game bird in North Carolina, but the law was changed during the year 1928, placing it among jthe list of songbirds to be protected. Second growth thickets of dense bushes, vines, and briars are the favorite abodes of this specfies of' bird. - The nest is usually built on the ground or in very low bushes. Rootlets, plant fibers, grass, and hair or other soft material, are used. Four eggs, white with brown spots, are laid. The male often assists in the process of incubation. This variety of bird feeds to a great extent on the ground, devouring many kinds of insects destructive to crops. It is regarded as of considerable value. (James Hutchins). Methodist Church Mrs. W. W. Hennessee and Mrs. R. E. Anderson were hostesses to the Wom an’s Society of Christian Service on Thursday of last week. Mrs. Fred Proffitt conducted a devotional ser vice after which the meet iing was given over to bus iness and the discussion of plans for the work of the coming months. During the social hour the hostesses served a salad course using the Valentine motif in food and acces sories.

He is also on the tumbling team. Royce Boone, Burnsville, is a woodworker and has shown much interest in the many activities of this de partment. During the past year he acquired sufficient skill so that the department accepted His request to work in the shop. The boys at Farm School may apply for work in whatever de partment they choose, but many of the jobs are only jlpven to students who have proven responsible and cap abltf of meeting depart mental standards. Royce ; plays an instrument in the school hand. James Brown, Burnsville, j is particularly interested in auto-mechanics. He and two other boys prepare breakfast for the school i family each morning. In addition to this James is ; custodian of the adminis tration building. This is his' i first year at Farm School. John Evans, Jacks Creek, is studying Agriculture and . works in the dairy. Four i boys manage the dairy. Ap ■ proximately twenty cows | of a registered Holstein herd are milked twice daily. The records, feeding, arid , care of young stock and. i breeding stock also belong ■ to the job thfese boys un ’ dertake. All the milk is con ’ sumed at the school and the I dairy also contributes to i the meat supply. Therefore ’ it is a responsible position i that John fills the first ■ year at Farm School. !j Reuben Harris, Banks Creek, used to drive the /dairy wagon but now he ■ works on the main school farm; and the work must have been good for him be ! cause he certainly has grown tall in the year and a half that he has been at Farm School. Reuben is a member of the tumbling team and the Boy Scout troop. His principal voca tional interest is Agricul ture. j Ralph Harris, Micaville, entered Farm School only recently and is studying handicrafts. Frank Greene is also a j new boy this year and is particularly interested in Religious Education. Another member of the Boy Scouts is Jdbk Hensley, Banks Creek, who is at Farm School for his second year. In addition to special jobs for the landscaping de partment, for which Jack worked last year also, he is the waiter for the faculty table in the dining hall. Jack was chosen for the latter job because of his 7-4 ' ■ Judgment in the above entitled cause. * This 18th day of January, 1941, J. C. CHEESEBOROUGH, Re ceiver.

Jack is now taking , a course in the Business , Department. Jack and Junior Robin | son, Hamrick, are much in terested in Agriculture and , are members of the tumb [ ling team. Jack and anoth , er boy have taken over the poultry plant at the school and are using all their ’ spare moments to make the i ! project yield a profit. Glen Thomas, Micaville, ’ hopes to concentrate in the commercial subjects. He is . a Scout and also cooks in . the .school kitchen—which is ja valuable contribution and much appreciated when 125 hungry boys, to say nothing of, the faculty, appear regularly at meal time. These boys haV£ found at Farm School something which has captured their interest, something ipto , which they have thrown their energies and built ! their hopes for the future. The records show how well they have availed them selves of the opportunity. They are fine boys. „ r; . i“- ' . : Reconciling Accounts.S " This term is most common in usage ainonß banks.

C. 1 I APPLES Do you get $1.65 per bushel for your apples? If you do not there-#is something wrong. That is the price which I got for my three best grades last year. I also increased my yield over 60 per cent by the application of only one extra spray of LIME-SULPHUR CONCEN TRATE. This material is compounded here in Pensa cola just 14 miles south of Burnsville. It is made from the very best materials obtainable and is processed by the latest methods approv- i ed by the State and National Extension ser- u vice, combined with life-long experience in Jfl the orchard. If you saw apples from the M orchards where ipy materials were used last M year, you have learned more than I can tell B you. m This spray material will be available hjBSSBM March 15th at the lowest possible price. You can spray an apple tree one whole son for the «ost of less than the increased valflHSj ation of one bushel of its production. I'etßßßf use the experience of others as stepping to greater success in apple growing. We have W soils and climate well adapted to the growing W of apples and many other fruits. Try spray- S ing your orchard this year and lam sure that JP you will be well pleased with the results. Send your correspondence to * C. D.
