There will be no national
lottery for this group, in-.
: stead they will be number

ing that of June 30, is 4287.
Approximate Number In
Service
Through the selective
service, 252 have been im,
ducted into servicer When
i the act was, passed, how
ever, the county was given
. credit for 282 already in
the service.
There have been a num
ber who were not old
enough to register in first
registration who have vol
unteered, and of whom the
local board has no record.
This would increase the

300. By these estimates, j
there are approximately!
550 men from Yancey cou

Corporation of Marshall,

FARMERS URGED TO
DEFEND BOTH NATION
AND ITS SOIL
j
A Nation can never be
any stronger or any richer
[than its soil, says Earl H.
Meacham, Extension soil
conservationist o f State
College, because poor soils
-i make poofr people and
weak people. He urges
that farmers “defend the!
soil” at the same time they
grow the soybeans and
[peanuts for oil, and pro-!
duce hogs, eggs, milk and
other products on the
Food-for Freedom list.
A definite program for
farmers to follow in meet
ing their wartime goals
without destroying the Na
| lion’s heritage—its soil—
is contained in a new Ex
tension War Series Bulle
tin (No. 2), written by
Meacham and printed for
free distribution by the
Extension Service. A copy
of this publication, entitled
“Denfend Your Nation and
Its Soil,” may be obtained
by writing to the Agricult
ural Editor, N. C. State
College, Raleigh, request
ing the bulletin by name
and number.
Some of the suggestions
made by the Extension soil
conservationist include: (1)
Terrace steep land or land
that washes; (2) plant row,
crops on the contour; (&) i
do hot run row crops up
and down the hills; (4)1
i protect your wood land
from fire; (5) use strip-
I cropping wherever possib- 1
le; (6) save all home-grown
iseed if possible; and (7)
drain farm land when this
is needed.
“The farmers have been
I assigned a vital role in the
■ war,” said Meacham, “but
they can’t afford to waste
their soil as was done ini
many cases during the last
war. The United Nations

United States to grow en

the cannery and have no other market are urged to
see the county agent immediately. The agent is trying
to arrange for these crops to be marketed cooperat
ively in ottler to conserve gas and tires and cut hand
ling expense for the farmer.
