J. H. Bridgers, chair man of the board, said today. The boxes have been impounded for many months while the elections committee of the United States Senate has been I considering the charges by George M. Pritchard. Republican, of Asheville, that Josiah William Bailey, now Unit ed States Senator from North Caro lina .was fraudulently elected in No vember 1930. Pritchard waa Bailey's opponent. Soon after the Investigation got un der way. ballot boxes in many coun ties of the State were impounded: that is. they were sealed by Federal agents xo as to keep them intact as they were left following the election, and pending a possible recount of the bal lots. Mr. Bridgers has written to Senator Samuel M. Shortridge, Republican. California, chairman of the elections committee, asking if the boxes will be released in time for use in the June 4 primary, but so far he has received no word from the senator, other than a letter from his secretary to the effect the matter is under con sideration and further information will be sent. Meantime, the primary election day approaches, and the hoard cannot wait until the last minute to prepare for the balloting. The boxes must be definitely assured, and unless some thing is heard from Washington by the end of this week.

Etcxnslon Forester When I say, “The Farm Woods Yield a Good Income," <so«ne one is go ing to disagree. Yet many people wilu be surprised to learn juek wttat the farm woodlands in Vance county give the farmers lh the way of income. According to the latest figures avail able, the U. S. Census Report for five year. 1929. the harvest of form forest products for that year was aa follows 1.644.000 board feet of lumber and logs. 36,139 cords of firewood, and 495 fence posts. It is rattier difficult to figure the value of these products because many es them were used by the farmer himself. But figured at the common market price at that time, the total value of these forest products to the Vance rounly woodland owners was about $157,488. This is quite a sizeable Income to receive in one year from the one por tion of these fkrms —the one crop, which has received no care, no farit lizezr or cultivation, and cost only the annual tax on those acres. Let's give the woods an "even break " This Is the only part of the farm that produces a crop without rare, fert Hi ration or cultivation. In seasons of drought or excessive rains, it keeps right on growing. Late or early frosts, or the severest winter weather does not injure it. When all other crops fail, the farm woodland carries ou Its job of producing wooc. And though the owner slashes U to pieces with careless and wasteful cut ting. thin one crop cornea right back for more. Certainly, a crop that will do this deserves encouragement and better treatment than many farmers usually give it. All it requires is protection from fire and a little more care in cutting operations. Your County agent can tell you how to give this crop a “fair chance" in tts efort to produce a reasonable share of the farm income.
