North Car olina is becoming conspicuous, in a mea sure', because she was the first state in the Union to establish tick eradication work along approved lines, but it now appears that she will be the last at the finish." The above statement was made by Dr.. R. A. Ramsey, Chief of Tick Eradication Division, of the U. S. Bu reau of Animal Industry, at a recent conference held in this state. Dr. Ramsey further adds, "In my tra vels through North Carolina I have found that there is a tendency to con nect tick eradication work wjth the fence law question, or to make it a po litical issue. But it has been our ex perience that this question should stand on its own merits. Tick eradication jaakes the greatest progress when it has .no troublesome alliances. The way to get rid of ticks is to get the vats j ready, and then, backed by popular and legal support, dip all the cattle regular ly. - .. w-.-ii" -.4 -imrf While ticks can be eradicated more speedily and with somewhat less ex pense under fence conditions, still fen ces are not a neccessary adjunct to the work. Ticks have, been eradicated from free range areas in other states where no fences exist, and the same results can be obtained in North Carolina. While there are vandals who cut fen ces and attempt to destroy dipping vats, this element is no larger in Noth Caro lina than in other states, and their acts of vandalism class such persons as op posed to law and order. Usually it is well know to the people of a locality who is responsible t for such destruction of property with the result that those who disapprove of such unlawful acts immediately ally themselves with the better element. I am glad that tick eradication is in variably associated with a desire for live stock improvement and good citi zenship. In other states where ticks have been eradicated, better cattle have been introduced which means more pro fitable farms and prosperous commun ities. It would make possible the liberal I production of meat and dairy products i so that North Carolina folks would not j nave to depend upon other states for a considerable part of their food supply." SUNDAY AFTERNOON . HIKES FOR THE BOYS Boy Scouts Solve Problem of What Idle Youth Do With Its Time Sunday Afternoons A CAMP MEETING AT CAPE HATTERAS There will be an old fashion Camp Meeting at Hatteras from May 2Sth to June 6th, conducted by Rev.
