Vendors of produce or any other
commodities who sell from stands or
vehicles on the right-of-way of - any
state road and have not moved off the
right-of-way by Monday of this week
will face arrest for encroachment
On that day, State highway patrol
men and other officers began enforce
ment of an ordinance adopted on July
6 by the State Highway and Public
Works Commission as a safety meas
ure and also to conform with govern
ment regulations which require clear
ed rights-of-way in order for the
State to receive Federal-aid funds
The Commission set the date for
beginning enforcement at October 15
in order to give North Carolina farm
ers and others with roadside stands
an opportunity to operate through the
summer and fall sales season and thus
to avoid working too great a hardship
upon them. ' Meantime, the Commis
sion began giving notice through farm
agencies; law enforcement agencies
and public information media that
enforcement would start October 15.
On and after October 15, it will be
illegal for anyone to sell produce or
merchandise from vehicles parked on
the righ-of-way of any primary or
secondary road or from stands erected
Violations of the ordinance will con
stitute a misdemeanor, and each day
such violation continues shall consti
tute a new and separate offense.
During November, the Commission
will conduct a special drive to get the
cooperation of advertisers to remove
signs from highway rights-of-way. If
the voluntary effort is not successful,
the Commission will take whatever
legal steps are available. This also
is being done to conform with Fed
eral highway requirements. i
Grain Insects Gause i
Big Loss On Farms i
Don't wait until your horse is stol
en to lock the stables. And don't
wait until your grain crib or bin is
full to do something about protecting
it from insects.
That's the advice of George D.
Jones, insect control specialist for the
State College Extension Service, who
says insects attacking stored grain
cause high losses on North Carolina
farms each year.
If grain is stored in a place where
fumigation cannot be carried out sat
isfactorily, says Jones, there's little
the farmer can do 'except sell it. The
fumigation will be wasted unless all
four sides and the floor of the storage
area are gas-tight
It isn't too early, says" the specia
list, for farmers to begin thinking
'about corn storage. All storage bins
should be cleaned of old corn and the
walls sprayed with DDT. The old
corn may be shelled and stored in a
tight place. If it is infested it can
be treated with a fumigant.
"After the crib is filled, it's too late
to do much about killing insects,"
Jones cautions. "Most of the work
has to be done in advance." A
thorough farm cleanup, he adds, is
one of the best effective weapons to
use in fighting insects of any kind.
A commercial dust form of insecti
cide mixed with the grain, known as
"grain protectant," is being studied by
insect control specialists at State Col
lege. Tests have been underway for
two seasons but thus far corn heavily
infected and placed in storage has not
been fully protected by the material.
Further testa are being conducted.
The work thus, far indicates the ma
terial has some value in reducing In
sect buildup if the initial infestation
is not too blah, but the length of
period of effective control must atOl
be worked out ' ,
