It. 0., aa aaooud-olaai matter. GRAHAM, N. C., FEB. 2, 1928. Stedman?Overman?Simmons. Three North Carolinians, now in the Congress of the United States where they have served with signal distinction for mauy years, had their birthdays in January. The eldest of these is Major Charles M. Stedman, Representa tive of this, the 5tb,Congressional District, who was 87 years old on January 29th. He is the oldest member ,of the House and the only Civil War veteran in Con gress; and, furthermore, he is the last one of that memorable conflict that will ever occupy a seat in the world's greatest law making body. Following his birthday he reported for duty, and was feeling good. He spoke of retiring a few j ears ago, but his fellow members of all parties Importuned him not to do so. He is loved and venerated by the en tire body of which he is a mem ber. His like will not again grace the halls of Congress in many years to come. Senator Lee S. Overman is next in point of age of the three. He was 74 on January 3rd. Senator Furnifold M. Simmons ? ds the youngest and was 74 on January 20tb. There are no more influential members of the Senate than these two. They are the peers of any there, and they have had much to do with the shaping of legisla tion. Any commonwealth in the ga laxy of States would be peculiarly honored to have three such distin guished statesmen us representa tives in the Congress st one and the same time. That the prestige of North Car olina is what it is in Congress is because her representatives have been given long years of service. No one knows what may bap pen, nor bavo either of these avowed their intentions as to the future, but The Gleaheb rises now to nominate each of them as his own successor so long as he will consent to stand for re-election. Protection?Prepardnen S enator Simmons favors spend ing $500,000,000 or $600,000,000, or whatever sntu is necessary, for flood control in the Mississippi valley. That's the right kind of talk?that's conservation. And next to that comes the strengthening of the U. S. Navy, which will require the expendi ture of many millions, if the tentative program is carried out. A strong navy does not mean conquest. Uncle Sam's policy is not for aoiquision of territory that way, but should ever be prepared tor self-protection. That cashier out in Oregon had the right idea and did quick action. Six bandits attempted to hold up his )iank. He shot twc of them dead and the others fled and he rushed ont after them and fired a parting Bhot. If othei cashiers could do as well, bank robberies wonld not be so fre quent. And, by the way, hold ops should be placed on the sam? looting with burglary as to pun isbment. In both they go pre pared to kill if resisted. Col'. Lindbergh is turning home * ward. Nearly two months age he crossed the Mexican border He has visited a number of tbi Central and South American cap itals where he has been treated royally and showered with distin gnished honors. Heis noo home ward-bound?today he lands 01 the island of Porto Bioo. In i ... day or so he will pass over Tar I >mlla headed ?er heme. i?T Did You Ever Stop To Think (Copyright 1927) iiy Ednon R. Waite, Shawnee, Okla That good advertising turns readers into buyers and makes buyers buy more? That success in business de pends on up-to-date business methods? That a sufficient volume of business is necessaiV to bring success? Advertising increases volume! That truth is a correct state ment of any reality, purpose, or fact?exactly as it exists andj never otherwise? That is why big business con cerns believe in truthful adver tising. J*heir service or goods will always stand the light of advertising; they know it and tell it through the printed page. That is one of the big reasons why people should patronize the business concerns that adver tise. National Democratic Convention Clem Shaver, chairman of the National Democratic Executive Committee, has issued the fol lowing call for the National Con vention to be held at Houston, Texas, on Jnue 26th: To Whom It May Concern: By action and authority of the Democratic National Committee, nnder a resolution adopted at a meeting held in Washington, D. C., January 12, 1928, a National Convention of the Democratic Party is hefeby called to meet in the City of Houston, in the State of Texas, on the 26th day of June, I 1928, at 12 o'clock noon, for the purpose of nominating a caudi . date for Peesidant -and a candi date for Vice Presidet of the r United States, to promulgate a party platform, and to take such other action as may be deemed advisable. Delegates and alter nates for each state shall be chos en to-the number of two delegates and two alternates for each United States Senator and two delegates and two alternates for each Roptesentative in Congress from the rospective states; and the District of Columbia, the Philippine^, Hawaii, Porto Rico, Alaska and the Canal Zone shall be entitled to six delegates and six alternates "each; and the Virgin Islands, two delegates and two alternates. In accordance with the action taken by the Democratic National Committee in authorizing the is suance of this pall, it is provided that no State or Territory shall elect any number of delegates with their alternates in excess of the quota to which such State or Territory may be eutitled under the basis of representation herein indicated. In authorizing this call the Democratic National Committee further provided that in order that opportunity m?y be afforded the various States to give ade quate representation to women as delegates-at-large, without dis turbing prevailing party custom, there may be elected from each State four delegates-at large for each Senator in Congress from such State with one-half vote each in the National Convention, and recommended to the States that one-half of the number of dele gates at-large shall be women.

W. Jeffries of Alamance Wins Loving: Cup As Best Judge of Dairy Cattle. Few white people realize that there is a small group of trained agricultural workers serving a pari of the colored population of North Carolina in an efficiehl add successful way. At the present time, the North Carolina State College employs 18 local uqgro agents who are located in those counties with a large percentage of colored farmers. These men are well trained and go quietly about their job teach ing the more progressive members of their race new facts 'about farming through the demonstra tion method. Last year, these 18 agents conducted nearly 7,0t)O different demonstrations and got reports from nearly all of them. This work is done under the su pervision of Prof. C. R. Hudson of the farm demonstration staff, assisted by L. E. Hall, colored dis trict agent. J. C. Hubbard, local agout of i Bertie county was awarded the gold medal offered by district agent Hall for the best all-around work during the year 1927; J. D.: Carlton of Rowan won the silver medal and S. T. Brooks of Robe son won the bronze medal. J. W. Jeffries of Alamance county won the silver loving cup for being the best judge of dairy cattle this year. Jeffries has a calf club among the boys and girls of his county and each of the 23 mem bers owns a pure bred Jersey aui mal. In a story writing contett held while the negro agents were at tending their annual short course at Raleigh recently, awards were made for the best written Htory and for the most accurate knowl edge of corn growing exhibited in the article. W. D. Brown of Hertford county wrote the best story, with McKay McNeill of Johnston second and A. D. Her ring of Harnett, third. E. F. Coi son of Duplin displayed the most accurate knowledge of corn grow ing,'McKay McNeill of Johnston was second and E. C. Lackey of Iredell was third. According to Prof. Hudson, these colored agents have been very successful in their work dur ing the past year and good results are beginning to appear in the territory where they are employ ed. Profits in Hogs Begin With Sow. The old brood sow is nu impor tant animal on North Carolina farms these days. The better the care given her, the higher the profits secured from her pigs. Realizing this, the Agricultural Extension Service of State College has prepared and' n6w has ready for distribution, extension circu lar 151 which tells in some detail how to handle the brood sow. The circular describes good meth ods of..feeding and management during the periods of flushing, gestation, farrowing and nursing. Exact rations to feed the sow dur ing these four periods are given and methods of feeding are ex plained. The bulletin points out that the farrowing period is one time that the sow needs more assistance than is generally given her. An individual house supplied with fenders or guard rails to prevent the sow from crushing the new born pigs is recommended and this house needs to be properly built and located so as to protect the young from cold winds and wet, unseasonable weather. Feeding following the farrbwing > period,' rebreeding the sow and marking the litter are three other ' subjects discussed. Clipping the teeth of the young is advocated i that the pigs may not tear- one i another and thus afford an en ? trance for disease- germs. The young pigs have teeth of needle like sharpness and a small pair i of pliers-or snips may be used - without injuring the gums, lips t or tongue. > The extension service workers i feel that the increased interest in - pork production in North Carolina i will make this circular very popu , lar. Only 5,000 copies-have been ) printed in the initial order and while reqneets received indicate that this supply will soon be ex 1 boosted, an additional order will > be secured if the demands receiv - ed warrant a reprint. -Copies ol * the present supply may be had ? free of charge by applying to the - Agricultural Editor, State Col ? ege; Raleigh.
