LoulBburg Klwanls Club last Friday
night how he lived at home. Nam

program, he "stated that no farmer
could afford to neglect his garden^

yesr thru. There is something that
we can have on our table, from the
Garden, the whole year." He stated
further that he was raising cows
profitably. That he had a strain of
pure bred cattle that were making
money for him. Then he told how he
had started with pure bred hogs.
Getting his first sow from Dr. Flem-,
ing. From a sow that he raised, he
sold last year $275 worth of pigs. "No
farmer can afford to overlook and not
have these three things with him on
the farm. He can't live at home
without them and If he isn't living
at home, he isn't saving and making
money where he could."
Frank Jeter, agricultural editor of
-State. College^ brought to the club an
?interesting address. "There is one
thing about this county that I don't
like and that is this: Coming over
ftom Raleigh this afternoon I saw,

ether grains that we call 'Cover

and Observer, in Raleigh, had been
sent down Into the eastern part of
the state to explore the pitiful condi

as reported through different medi

age income of the eastern farmer was
approximately $1000. while the aver
age of the piedmont farmer is only
$600. Yet the piedmon* farmer isn't
as hard hit as his eastern brothers.

idea of improving the students, and
benefiting the community, by having

the subject is decidedly appropriate
and timely. It Is hoped that all high

PLAY AT GOLD #AND

High School will present the play
"The End of the Lane" by Lillian
Mortimer, Wednesday evening, Feb

"To a penniless wanderer, Jim
Denver, comes the bright idea of
passing himself off as the long-lost
son of a wealthy New York farmer,
who was kidnapped 20 years before
the opening of the play. He hopes
thereby to repair his broken fortunes
and to gratify his longing for a home.
The deception is a success. The far

ceive Jim with open arms, and Jim
is soon in love with the daughter,
who unwittingly returns his love.
But the course of true love and of
veil planned frauM runs anything but
smooth. A rival lover appears. It is
interesting to see how the hero frees
himself from the tangled web of his
own deception and finds happiness.
Excellent comedy Is supplied by the
antics of Martha the hired girl with
operatic aspirations, and her country
swain, who woo# her- with gaaidrupe)
