Threshers Must
Secure License
In order that reliable records of
acreage and production of grain

North Carolina be secured, the
1935 General Assembly passed a
law requiring every firm, person
or corporation engaged in threshing
for themselves or for others, to se
cure a license and to keep a com
plete and accurate record of the
acreage harvested and amounts
threshed for each farm, and to
promptly make upon blanks to be
furnished by the Register of Deeds
of each county, reports showing
the acreages and the amounts
threshed by said person, firm or
corporation in said county during
the preceding season. The violation
of this Chapter (329) shall be
deemed a misdemeanor and punish
ed by fine not exceeding $25.00.
All operators of threshing ma
chines should secure from the Reg
ister of Deeds, a license and the
necessary forms for making the re
ports to the Department of Agri
culture. The Register of Deed;
for Rowan County states that the
licenses and necessary blanks will
be issued without charge to all
threshing operators in Rowan
County. These reports are now
past due and those who have har
vested grain crops, should secure
their licenses ajjd make the neces
sary reports.
