This week marks the
birthday of the Boy Scout
movement, and throughout
the nation this significant
event is being appropriat
ely observed. In this coun
ty renewed interest ha s
been shown in Scouting
dnuring the past few
It is during the coming
week, however, that adult
citizens are given an op
portunity to, share in the
Scout program. 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. It is a worthy
gesture to join as an adult
member of the Scouts.
Os the 20 boys enrolled
in the Jamesville 4-H Club,

their project for 1941, re
ports John I. 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

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.

Yancey County Boys At
, Asheville Farm School
I At 'the present time there
; are eleven boys from Yan
! cey county attending the
| Asheville Farm School, at
; Swannanoa, in the high
1 school division.
1 Roger Banks, of Banks
\ Creek is now a forward on
i the varsity basketball team
• and has played a commen
-7 dable type of ball this year.
; He has been studying Agri
i culture and has worked on
; the school farm, where he
• has become a good team
’ ster and dependable work
erable progress since corri
; ing to Farm School three
years ago. 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
j Ralph Harris, Micaville,
entered Farm School only
recently and is studying
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

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

is ja valuable contribution
and much appreciated
when 125 hungry boys, to
say nothing of, the faculty,
appear regularly at meal
These boys haV£ found at
Farm School something
which has captured their
interest, something ipto

their energies and built

The records show how well
they have availed them
selves of the opportunity.
They are fine boys. „ r;

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
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.
