Stealing Os
A new kind of thievery, that of
stealing shrubbery from the yards or
premises of citizens, has sprung up
in this city and section recently, and
man Y People have become aroused ce
cau.,e of it. In one instance a reward
of SIOO has been offered for the arrest
and conviction of those who took a
shrub from the premises of J. H.
Brodie on the Country Club drive,
west of the city.
It was pointed out today that these
thieves, upon conviction, would be lia
ble to six years in prison terms, two
of them for larceny, two for trespass
and two years for the malicious des
truction of property.
Those who have interested them
selves in the situation have ’ found
themselves wondering what benefit

W hile they are important in beautify
ing homes where they are stolen, they
would not bring fancy prices, in most
instances, if peddled for sale, appar
ently not worth the risk and the trou
>le involved in uprooting them and
o sering them for sale wherever they
may be disposed of.
But the thefts appear to be on the
.nciease, and there have been a num
ber of instances of them in this sec
tion recently.

Effort To Establish
Plan Os State Parks
Seems Near Fruition
Raleigh, May 6—Years of effort to
ward the establishment of a credit
able system of State Parks appear to
be drawing toward a successful cul
mination within the next few months,
R. Bruce Etheridge, director of the
Department of Conservation and De
velopment, indicated today.
Achievement of this goal, the con
servation director said, will be made
possible through the Federal emer
gency conservation work program
and the liberality and interest of pri
vate citizens and communities.
Not only are prospects bright for the
establishment of several new State
Parks, according to Mr. Etheridge,
but their develoment into attaractive
and useful areas for public use has
been assured through the federal pro
The conservation official expects at
least five units to be added to the
three existing State Parks with pos
sibly one of two more later. One
of these areas, Fort Macon State Park,
near Moreliead City and Beaufort, is
now being developed by a Civiliar
Conservation Corps camp. The old

hundred-year-old fortification is being
restored and repaired and numerous
other improvements for the use, at
traction and convenience of visitors
are being made.
A road has been constructed from
the Atlantic Beach causeway to the
fort, a dock is being built for visiting
craft, a cottage for a park warden is
being put up, considerable landscap
ing is being done, and sand fixation
work is being carried out. These im
provements are expected to attract
thousands of visitors to the section.
A CCC camp is expected to be estab
lished on Mount Mitchell State Park,
in Yancey County, within the next
few weeks. The development program
on this park will probably include
clearing up the damage from a forest
fire that occurred several years ago,
building of overnight cabins, construc
tion of picnicking facilities, cutting of
trails, and other features to attract
visitors and increase the utility of the
Deeds to some 2,000 acres of land in
! Stanly County for a State Park have
recently been submitted to the De
partment of Conservation and develop
ment and it is expected that a CCC
camp will be located in that area as
soon as available. This property is
being donated to the State by individ
uals and the county.
The feature of this park is Morrow
Mountain, outstanding peak in the
Uharrie Mountains. Contemplated
development features include cabins
for visitors, camping and picnicking
facilities, new fishing grounds and
facilities for game fishing.
Another State Park, according to
Director Etheridge, will probably be
located at Cape Hatterns. Plans are
made to develop this area as a pub
lic recreational ground for the bene
fit of people of this State and else
where. It is hoped that the State
Park will be the first step in the deve
lopment of a great National Park,
extendin gfor a considerable distance
along the “banks” of North Carolina
Other areas for State parks are now
under consideration but have not pro
gressed sufficiently to be made pub
lic, Mr. Etheridge continued. Most
of these will come in the form of gifts
from individuals, counties and com
Another branch of Federal relief ac
tivities gives promise of making the
establishment of several State Forests
possible. At least three areas of sub
marginal farm lands have been ap
proved for purchase and are being
placed under option. These lands, it is
indicated, will be turned over to the
State for administration.
