I basement or only a partial basement.
If no basement is dug, the surface
soil should be removed to give a
clearance of three or four feet, be
suggested, All stumps and large roots
should be removed completely.
On the outside, the distance from
the soil to the house frame is less
important, but_there should he a
clearance of at least 18 inches. Dr.
.Fulton added.
Anything that breaks the contact
between the wood and the soil re
duces the danger of termite attacks.
Sheets of non-corrosive metal and
well laid cement are good, lie point
ed out.
Frame houses, particularly those
without a basement, may he insulat
ed from the ground by metal termite
shields; that is, a continuous strip of
non-corrosive metal between the* foun
dations and the sills.
29 Eradication Campaigns
Have Been Put On Late
ly in Three States.
w: * on rats, oilo of man’s
worst t'M is •'inning ground in
the two t’.ii'is and Virginia.
Du , • . ..ninths 29 rat
eradication campaigns have been put
on in cities and communities of the
three States, said George B. Lay,
rodent control leader of the U. S.
Biological Survey, with headquarters
at N. C. State College.
In Greensboro and Guilford county
the rat control campaign was financ
ed by individuals and not by the local
government. Lay said.
In Rock Hill. S. C. and Maxton,
Trenton, and Maysville, N. C., the
towns involved supplied money to
pay for the Red# Squill poison, food
ingredients, and labor. The federal
government supplied the supervision
and cooperated in other ways.
In these campaigns, Lay said, the
distribution of poisoned bait was
city-wide, and even went beyond the
city limits to include all built up
While a city finances a campaign,
he said, the distribution of bait is
city-wide and better and more lasting
results are obtained than in towns
where individuals furnish the money,
since many do not buy bait and the
distribution is therefore not complete.
At present, Lay continued, commun
ity campaigns are being planned in
several hundred communities of the
three States, a number of county
wide campaigns are being undertak
en by county agents, and several other
cities are planning f or campaigns.
Lay said he is ready to cooperate
with any city or community wishing
to conduct a rat control campaign.
Ed Powell, local baseball enthus
iast, stated today that he, T. P. Ghol
son and Ed Burgess would go to Mar
tinsville, Va., tomorrow to attend a
meeting of the heads of the Bi-State
League with the intention of seek
ing a berth in that league for Hen
derson. Powell has been interested in
that movement since the close of
baseball season here this summer, and
has contracted several of the direc
tors relative to Henderson’s entrance.
In addition to the above named
men, others were expecting to attend
the meeting from this city.
The great East African plateaus ex
tending with their rift valleys, lakes
and magnificent montains from the
Red sea down to the Cape of Good
Hope, offer tremendous potentialities
for the future. Capable of cultivation
and habitation by people from the
temperate zones, they will inevitably
attract a migration of varied popula
tions that may change the whole char
acter of Africa. Already there are
more than a million and a half Euro
peans in South Africa, over 30.000 in
the Rhodesias. and upwards of 10.000
in Kenya.

Ttnioign, Dec. 12—The cost of build

labor, poles and wire and probably
not more than SOOO a mile, the Rural
Electrification Administration in
Washing!on has advised J. L. Horne.

These li' in* were quoted in a re

talling i ram formers, meters and oth

with rural electric lines should not
cost more than sllO per customer and
hence not more than 8330 a mile on
lines averaging three customers per
"Thus the entire cost, including
transformers, meters and so forth, of
building rural electric lines averag
ing three customers a mile should not
eceed SI,OOO per mile.” Herring said.
These figures are in line with esti
mates made by the North Carolina
Rural Electrification Authority, ac
cording to Bagiev, and for the first
time show that the State authority
and the Federal Rural Electrification
Administration are in virtual agree

In order to be in a position to bor
row from the Federal REA for the
purpose of building rural electric lines
cities and towns with municipal
plants will have to show that the pro
posed lines will pay sufficiently to li
quidate the loans, regardless of the
credit standing of these cities and
towns with the banks and bond buy
ers, Herring indicated. This is under
stood to mean that every proposed
rural electric line must be a good
business risk and to have enough cus
tomers to make it pay before the
