Long Sunday afternoon Says America Now In New Era Of Land Use Addressing the annual session of the North Carolina State Grange in Raleigh last night, H. H. Bennett, Chief of the Soil Conservation Ser vice, Washington, D. C, told members that in the last few years the coun try has made a far greater advance toward . the conservation of soil re sources than in ail preceding years since the United States became a nation. "The national program of soil and water conservation now in progress has carried us into a new era of land use," he said. "Land defense is re placing the old system of land waste and exploitation." In North Carolina alone farmers representing more than 400,000 acres are cooperating with the Soil Con servation Service and the State Col lege Extension Service to conserve the soU, Bennett declared. Accom plishments in North Carolina are typical, he said, "not only of work here but also in Virginia and South Carolina and on to the Pacific and Canadian border." Describing his observation on a 3,000-mile inspection tour of seven southern states, Bennett stated that "the condition of our agricultural land in southeastern farming states is grim evidence that people of this youthful nation have squandered their rich heritage of productive land more rapidly than any other nation, civilized or barbaric, of which we have any record." Bennett pointed out, however, that a tremendous area oz good soil throughout the region is still fertile and productive. Many acres that dine through the use , of proven measures for conserving rainfall and controlling erosion, he said. :' : Continuation of the present policy of working" agreeably and coopera tively with farmers and state and federal agencies wUl f orthwith" bring a solution to the national, pro blem of unnecessary and costly land destruction and decline, Bennett . eoa eluded.'. v&Lj''t Chevrolet Breaks All 'MNovimberRecoW Chevrolet production for November exceeded that of any previous Nov ember in the 25-year history of the company,1 summaries of official fig ures revealed ; this week, with a total of 112,229 cars' distributor from the company's factories.;, , . ; Domestic production for the month was ' 95,022: export production, ' 12,- 853; and Canadian production, 4,354.
