SA THE CAROLINA TIMES Sat.. April 7, 1973 WEED CONTROL A "pretty good" job of weed control may not be good enough. If you' re controlling 90 percent of the weeds in your crops or garden, the 10 percent that is left will produce stalemate at best. For example, one plant of the lambsquarter weed will produce 72,000 seed. One rough pigweed plant will produce 117,000 seed. The parasitic witchweed can produce 500,000 seed per plant. fEWER FARMS .The U. S. will have about 2.1 million farms by 1985, some 700,000 fewer than now, the latest official projection indicates. SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 1973 8 Pages in This Section From Black Local, State and National Newi of Interest to Al By John Hudgina sr WW Psfr i-' an abundance of seed to make battle your with perennial weeds a Hl &m&MmW ssssBRSS W7' " '- vj BH UMfcjBSBsHsBsl We can expect a number of problems to arise where Black teachers are concerned within the next few months. Aa of July 1, 197S the North Carolina Teacher Tenure Law becomes effective. What this law in effect says, teachers can no longer be fired without substantial reasons. Reasons that must be clearly spelled out I expect to see a lot of Black teachers terminated soon. The other actual effect of the law is that until July 1 school offic ials can use the old arbitrary dismissals to week out many Black teachers. The only redress to this kind of action is usually through the courts which can be diffi cult given the present laws. All teachers will become pro bationary teachers on July 1, those rehired will become in some instances career teachers, a more stable and tenured em ployment situation. It is quite clear to me that white administrators do not want Black teachers to teach white children. In many areas of this state and the nation we have seen the number of heretofore competent teachers decline with a direct relation ship to their race or skin color. What is most indicativ e of racism is the fact that while Black teachers are being dis missed white teachers are be ing added. Hopefully the new tenure law will give our teachers more flexibility and certainly more courage of conviction. Pre sently most teachers are silent because any activity would put their job, their career on the line. This situation should change as teache rs -become more secure in their own status as professionals. This should lead to a stronger desire to be heard in community affairs, which this writer welcomes. On the other hand there will always be individuals who lack courage of conviction. Un fortunately they will no longer be able to blame it on their contracts.

Pfl HI:wH l'iyr:' Mm mm mm wm mWrS mm Tm Ronnie Dyson Aids in Artists' Newfound Stardom Ronnie Dyson has always been within a fingernail of total national stardom. I It almost happened for him in "Hair," the first Broadway play presentation of the new counterculture. The tune "Aquarius" was written especially for him. And though he was remembered for his rendition of the song (which turned out to be re corded by countless others), the significance of the play itself somewhat overshadowed his individual performance. It almost happened for him with "(If You Let Me Make Love to You) Why Can't I Touch You?" The tune prov ed to be a major hit, but there was no immediate follow-up single with the same strength to maintain the mo mentum of the artist. It even almost happened for him with his recording of a Pepsi Cola commercial (sure you can hum it, can't you?), which was probably his most "commercia 1" tune to date (no pun intended). Now it appears that "al mosts" are ready to be thrown out the window. Known to be a great stage act, Dyson now has a catalyst which will possibly bring him the success and credit he so rightfully de serves - producerwriter Thorn Bell, and one hell of an album (and single), "one Man Band." "I feel very good about the new product I recorded with Thorn Bell. He's probably the hottest producer in the world today," stated Dyson, still possessing the same baby face which gleamed throughout his two-year hitch with "Hair." "His writing partner, Linda Creed, also helped a great deal with the album. Not only did she co write four of the tunes, she re-mixed six songs which were recorded on other sessions. They're both dynamic people." On having a record climbing the music charts for the first time in quite a while, Dyson exclaimed, "It feels great. But I knew it was going to happen because of Thorn Bell and Linda Creed. They made me feel really comfortable, and the songs were right. I just felt it had to happen." Born in Washington, D.C., Ronnie and his family moved to Brooklyn when he was a year old. Coming from a very religious family, Dyson began singing very early. And, at age five, he entered a local talent show at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Singing one of his favorite tunes, "Why Do Fools Fall in Love?" Ronnie discovered singing be fore an audience really did things for him, and he wanted to pursue it more. And his number one fan was his mother, who was in strumental in Ronnie receiving his first break. "She use to work for a telephone answer ing service," he remembered "and took messages for people in show business. One day she took a message from a person who was in the process of moving a play on Broadway and was looking for young actors who could sing. She told the man of Ronnie's abilities, and the nan in return asked her to bring her son down for rehearsals the next day to try out for one of the parts." Alcoholism is Discussed In The Christopher NEW YORK - "Alcohol," the current issue of Christopher News Notes which will be mail ed this month to one million readers, examine s alcoholism, the number three killer in the United States. "Alcohol" discusses the na ture of this addictive disease, signs that may indicate a per son is becoming alcoholic and ways in which alcoholism, once detected, can be treated. The news Note maintains that there is no simple solution to what it calls "a national health prob lem of crisis proportions": "It's easy to blsme the pres sures of modern life for the ris ing rate of alhol addiction. But ultimately, alcoholism is a personal disease and requires a personal decision to seek treatment." The News Note points out what family members and other interested persons can and cannot do to help the problem drinker recognize his situation and decide to seek help. "Alcohol" was prepared in close cooperation with the Na tional Council on Alcohol and other experts in the field. The News note also reflects the position of Alcoholics Anony mous that alcoholism cannot be cured but only arrested: "Treatment is built around the ability and willing ness of the alcoholic to stay away from the first drink." Single copies of "Alcohol" are available, free of charge, from The Christophers, 12 East 48th Street, New York, NY 10017.

Myers, Fla., shot twice in the head and neck. Police theorize that robbery may ha ve been the motive for the killing since the Catholic priest was known to have carried large sums of money with him from church collections. (UPI Photo) Colonial Stores Report Record Sales for Quarter ATLANTA - Colonial Stores Incorporated, 445-store Atlanta based supermarket chain, today reported record sales for the first quarter of 1973, but announced that earnings were below those for the same quarter of last year. Ernest F. Boyce, Colonial President, said that despite a substantial rise since January 1, retail prices have not kept pace with the rapid increase in wholesale prices and other costs. "We have had to absorb many of these increases, and as a result our profits are less than they were a year ago," Mr. Boyce explained. The Colonial sales and earn ings figures were disclosed in a quarterly statement which publicly owned corporations are required to make under regulations of the Federal Se curities and Exchange Com mission. Sales for the 12-week quar ter which ended March 24 were $175,443,611 compared with $166,365,975 in the com parable 12 weeks of 1972, and earnings were $1,890,821 vs. $2,017,361 in 1972. Earnings per share of common stock were $.43 compared with $.46 in the first quarter of last year, based on an average of 4,330,033 shares outstanding in 1973 and 4,313,726 shares in 1972.
