The Eagle Scout award went to
John Sustare. son of Mr. and Mrs.
R. T. Sustare. who were on. the rnp
trum with the other boys. Mrs. fsu»-
tare. John's mother, pinned the badge
of honor on Ytl.s lapel, after which he
was turned over to a group of other
Eagle Scouts wb° were present, and
who took him off into an adjoining
room for certain rites given mem
bers of their band.
John Sustare has lived only one

BALLOT BOX ISSUE
STILL UNSETTLED
County Board of Elections
May Have To Have
New Boxes Made
OLD ONES IMPOUNDED
Under Seal With Pritchard-Balley
Vote of November. 1931). in Them
Under Order of Senate
Elect bins Committee
Unless something definite is learned
by the end of this week as to whether
or not ballot boxes now impounded
in this county can be released, the
Vance Board of Elections will order
new boxes built. 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. Mr. Bridgers
said, new boxes will he ordered built,
even though at considerable expense
to the county.

FARM WOODS YIELD
GOOD INCOME HERE
Dr. Graeber Gives Statistics
on Timber Value In
Vance County
By I>. W. Graeber. 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.
