lias Moan? to Thin Club Member.
I have been a member of the White
I^evel Home Demonstration Club for
several yearB. The work has helped
'me In my canning, cooking, Hewing,
house management, house furnish
ings and community fairs.
In our club work we have learned
to can all fruits and EVKRY OARD
KN VEGETABLE. Just think what
this means to a housewife! Before
I was a member I would always th
ink, l'What must I have for dinner or
supplr?" for I would only can about
threa dozen cans of apples, poaches
and tomatoes. Now I never think of
what! I am "going to have until the
time to cook, for I have three or four
hundred cans of apples, peaches, to
matoes. l^na beans, string beans, soup
mixture, corn,* In fact all kind of fr
uits and vegetables. I hever use all
of my cans ffon> one year to another.
l;csides canning, we have learned to
make all kinds of pickles* and pre
serves. I have directions for cook
ing everything you may think about
in the very easiest and the very Tiest
way . We have learned to economize
in Our cooking which of course Is a
great, help- especially now wJth condi
tions as they are. I have learned to
prepare so many new dishes that I
never knew before.
In our Woman's Club at White I*e
vel we havo taken up Household
Management and Home Furnishings
There I have gotten many new ideas
of how to do many household tasks.

The seeming big discrepancy in the
amount of school tax levied for 1919
and for 1920 is due to a change of
law whirU, diverted a considerable
portion of the school tax frjom the
State treasury at Raleigh direct to
the county school fund. Formerly
this money was sent to Raleigh and
reapportioned whereas it is now paid
directly to our county school fund by
After all has been said the total tax
levied under the revaluation is not
much in excess of that levied for
1919, and that is not the trouble.
The trouble is that the lands were
valued at a time when places were
sky rocketing, abnormally high, and
absolutely- ficticious; resulting in a
shifting of the burden of taxation
from the shoulders of those who are
most able to pay. From personal
property to real ^estate. Especially
is this true at this time when farm
property is less productive of in
come than any other property.
I dare say that the average citizen
will cheerfully bear his just and fair
proportionate part of the burden, of
taxation. But when the farmer com
es up to pay his tax and knows that
he is paying upon the basis of a val
ue, in many instances, much in ex
cess of, and in some instances several
times, the actual value of his proper
ty the payment becomes A galling and
he has a Just cause of complaint.
1 am confidently looking to our
Legislature for some adequate relief
on this vexatious question.

V5 will give you 4 teachers and ther
an extra teacher for every additional
.30 pupils. As can be readily seen, it
is not optional with the committee oi
the county superintendent .as to -the
number of teachers your school can
employ next year as this is determin
ed entirely by your average daily at
tendance this year. The burden is
therefore on the community to make
the required attendance. I hope th
at the committeemen and the teachers
will take the necessary steps to let
the people Jcnow of tills, that every ef
fort may be put forth to retain the
number of teachers that each school
now has. Letters have been mailed
out to the committeemen and teach
ers in the districts where there is
danger of the district not making the
red ui red attendance.
