1 Regardless of the final amount of
the relief till no pending In Can
gress, and . regardless of the meth-

" bution of relief funds, the current
legislative battles oveY this measure
are certain to inluence virtually all

1 V sron in the House and Senate are de-
'tv eirable for those following the course
of this and other legislation. .
At the outset, President recom-
, ( mended a total of $1,600,000,000 for
.y . various relief activities. This amount
. was promptly , challenged. Some
members of the Congress favored
'" ' doubling that amount and others
sought a drastic slash. Therefore,
. ' the early stages of the controversy
over the relief bill was marked by
differences of opinion between those
seeking larger relief funds and those
advocating strict economy and a ba
' ' As the measure finally emerged
from the House Committee, it carr
ied the full amount recommended by
'the President, and represented a
compromise in the House between
advocates of spending and those
.seeking drastic slashes in relief
funds. It is significant that strong
supporters of the President are found
enlisted with both groups,
However, when the bill reached the
floor of the House, considerable sen
timent was found for "ear-marking'
'large sums that is, writing into the
bill Congressional decree as to how
certain monies are to be expended
It was promptly contended that this
would defeat the purpose of the re
lief bill by rendering it impossible
for those .administering relief to meet
new emergencies as tney may come
An intensive battle over this issue
is in progress in the House as this

North Carolina farmers who co
operated in the soil conservation pro
gram last year increased their acre
age of soil - conserving crops by
550,000 acres, according to E. Y.
Floyd, of State College.
After tabulating figures complied
from the work sheets covering the
cooperating farms, the State AAA
office announced that 1,800,000 acres
of conserving crops, mainly legumes,
were seeded last year as a direct
result of the program or in connec
tion with it.
An even larger acreage is bding
seeded this year as farmers take ad
vantage of the opportunity to build
up their soil, check erosion, and ba
lance their farming operations while
earning payments from the govern
ment, Floyd stated.
lie also pointed out that last year
so:he 550,000 acres of cotton land
were diyerted into conserving crops;
200,000 acres of tobacco land and 40,
000 acres of peanut land were also
By diverting cash crop acreage
and carrying out soil-building prac
tices, .North-Carolina farmers earn
ed $12,403,903 in 1936. Similar rates
year, Floyd added.
i In 1936, more; than 127,000 work
sheets were signed, covering 14,500,-
000 acres of farm land. 05 this
acreage, 5,750,000 acres were con
sidered crop land.
With additional work sheets sign
ed this year, it is expected that 150,
000 or more work sheets will be in
force for the 1937 program, Floyd
. The deadline for signing a work
sheet is June 12. However, farmers

The man who sells you an automobile
knows what a difference proper lubrication
makes in trade-in value. Read actual let
ters from car-dealers:
"We can pay 15 to 20 more for a car
that has been well brjrkated". . . lu
brication (hiring the life of the automo
- bile determines the condition of the car
to a great extent when traded-in to us."
,- i - , '
Marfak can make this big difference in
your car . '
Fc larfak is different from ordinary
chassis greases. Most cars are lubricated
every 1,000 miles. But most greases dont
stand up for the full period. Rain, washes
them out Heat melts them out Road
shocks wear them out
Marfak lasts twice as long.
