MONDAY, NOV. 17, 1941
Inasmuch as Wilkes county is one of the
greatest poultry producing counties in the
south, and in view of the fact that the gov
ernment is asking an increased production
of poultry and eggs, we believe that the
information contained in the following
comment from the Progressive Farmer
will be interesting to many people in this
part of North Carolina:
“Poultrj'men of the West have to de
pend largely on disposing of their eggs and
poultry in Eastern states. The price of
eggs in the West is usually about 5 cents
per dozen less than that received by
“In the South, production has not yet
taken care of the local demands. It is es
timated that the South produces only
about 6 per cent of the eggs used in the
area. As p -oof of this statement the edi
tor cites that in 1940 one chain of grocery
stores in Alabama sold 85,000 cases of
eggs of which only 10,000 or about 12 per
cent were produced in Alabama. In addi
tion there were 326 carloads of 400 cases
each shipped into Alabama in the spring
to be placed in cold stoage and later sold
on nearby markets. It is also known that
9,000,000 cases of eggs were shipped
through Alabama ciuring the same year to
Georgia and Florida markets.
“The South this year has produced an
abundance of feed. We can in normal
years produce plenty of corn, oats, and
wheat, which, along with peanut or cotton
seed meal, form 90 per cent of a good
poultry ration. In the past high feed pri
ces handicapped the Southern poultry-
man; however, at present there is practi
cally no difference in the cost of poultry
feeds in the South and those of the West.
“The milder and more uniform weather
is a big advantage to Southern farmers. In
Many places in the West the change from
extreme cold to extreme warm weather
take place in a period of 30 to 60 days.
The summer temperatures are just as high
as or higher than those of the South and
the winter temperatures are much lower.
“In the West labor and land are three to
five times higher than they are in the
South. Common farm labor receives $3 to
$4 per day during rush sea.sons and good
farm land sells for $75 to $100 per acre.
With most Western crops it is possible to
produce annually only $20 to $40 worth of
products per acre. In the South one can
often produce crops equal to the value of
the land in a year.”
MAKING THE AIR SAFE
Considering the fact that thousands of
training flights are being made each day
from aircraft carriers of the United States
Navy and from Naval Training Station
fields the number of accidents recorded is
so small as to be almost negligible.
The Navy’s safety record is something of
which every man in the fleet is proud.
The story behind that record is explained
by .-Admiral Charles A. Blakely, command
ant of the Eleventh Naval Di.strict, when
“Our planes, training, pursuit, scouting,
bombers—in fact all classes—are so well
constructed that there is slight chance, in
deed, of mechanical failure. What we are
seeking to guard against is human failure.
“Our first step in making the air safe for
our fliers is to pick only such men as fliers
as can meet any situation or emergency
that may arise instantly and wisely. Our
tests of co-ordination, reaction, eyesight,
etc., are such that many ofl those who
would be fliers are turned down—in the
interest of making the air safe.
“When I say that Navy fliers are picked
.en I am under-stating the case. The fleet
, proud of them, is proud of their ability
Bd is particularly proud of their safety

• BADGE OF PATRIOTISM
Because of greatly increased responsibili
ties in the national defense program the
Red Cross has appealed to the nation for a
1941'membership comparable to that of
the first World War when more than 18,-
000,000 adult Americans gave their sup
port. Membership in the Red Cross is
more than a sentimental endorsement of
good will. The entire machinery of Red
Cross peacetime operations has been gear
ed into, a vital part of our military and civi
lian defense. Red Cross membership dol
lars thus are transformed into a tangible
means of protecting the American way of
The Red Cross is on the job with the ar
my and navy here and abroad, providing
an important link of communication be
tween the service men and his family back
home. With 2,000,000 men under arms
this task has grown almost tenfold. The
corps of Red Cross field directors is assist
ing with experienced counsel and with fin
ancial aid to solve the problems of our
service men and their families back home.
Red Cross volunteers are giving their
blood for emergency transfusions in the ar
my and navy. In the coming year some
10,000 Red Cross nurses will have been in
ducted for military and naval service.
Uniformed volunteers are nearing comple
tion of 40,000,000 surgical dressings re
quested by the surgeons general of the ar
my and navy.
For its part in the civilian defense pro
gram, the Red Cross has undertaken the
training of 10,000 nurse’s aids, an auxi
liary corps of volunteers to help relieve the
current shortage of registered nurses. Dui
ing the coming year 1,000,000 men and
women will be taught Red Cross first aid
as a civilian preparedness measure. Dis-
a.ster relief preparedness is being widened
to meet the challenge of sabotage, fire, ex
plosions and to stand as a backlog of read
iness in the event of sporadic bombing or
armed invasion. Nutrition and home nurs
ing cou. is will be extended to additional
thousands as protective health measures.
These are the reasons why the Red Cross
asks your support this year. Your mem

The players seemed to be get

but If all the game had been fill
ed with excitement like the last
three minutes many of the spec
tators krould have been carried
off, collapsed with excitement,
suspense and nerve tension.
When North Wllkesboro drove
to a score the hard way with
Hunt crashing the line Wllkee-
boro spectators, many In number,
stood motionlees on the south
side of the field. Not a word came
from the group loud enough to
be heard across the field and no
body over there moved.
About one minute later It was
time for agony on the North
Wilkesboro side, which included
the cheering section In the grand
stand. When Blevins caught that
long pass for Wilkesboro there
were groans like the wail of a
dying calf in a hailstorm. That
was because it looked like a hard-
earned game going with one long
But the agony eased when a
Wilkesboro back was thrown for
a loss on the ten-yard stripe. The
suspense was not over, because
Wilkesboro had three more chan
ces and hearts were In throats
when the last play was run a
half yard short of the goal.
It was a hard one for Wilkes
boro to lose but they lost In good
style. It would have been harder
for North Wilkesboro to lose be
cause their score was made the
hard way, well earned, the kind

WHT SORT OF MAN ARE YOU?
There are honest men and upright men,
And men whose word is good;
There are wicked men, destructive men,
Who curse their neighborhood;
There are trustworthy men and. bad men,
And noble men and true;
There are loyal men and criminal men—
What sort of man are you?
There are stingy men, and selfish men.
And men of mighty greed;
There are clever men, liberal men,
And men of noble creed;
There are gentle men and humble men,
And men quite meek and kind;
There are haughty men and scornful men
All sorts of men we find.
.A CLEAN GAME
Every football player on both
teams deserves highest commen
dation. There was not a major
penalty during the game. There
were a few offside penalties
caused by players getting over
anxious. But there .was no unnec
essary roughness, no holding, no
clipping and nothing to indicate
any unsportsmanlike attitude on
the part of any player on either
Pre-gatne tension reached a
dew high. Both teams wanted
desperately to win and thus make
it a successful season. But they
played a clean football game.
Events prior to the game which-
might have caused the players
to become bitter did not affect
them. Our hats are off to two of
the cleanest playing football
teams we have ever seen in one
of the best games.
To us, coach Watkins, of Ap
palachian, said the game was very
clean. He also said the game wa-
a slam-up good one. Incidentally,
be said North Wilkeshoro’s pass
receiver should have outrun his
tackier on that long pass and
that on the last play of the game
the runner failed to score be
cause he tried to elude the tack
ier near the goal line instead of
running straight Into him. He
said the big runner would have
carried over th-j line with the
tackier had he not tried to dodge
