The Christmas Star
Once upon a time and not so very long ago, the seasons were
I known by special delicacies available only at that time. We had J ur.e
I pons in June, iresh corn in July and August, spring lamb in th*
i spring, turkey at Thanksgiving, English walnut*, Brazil nuts and
! almonds were initially greeted at Christmas. 1
All that is changed. With the new methods of quick-freezing
| and transportation by rail ana' air, practically all edibles are at our
| disposal the whole year through ....
For hundreds of years food has created trad'e routes, stimulated
commerce, influenced international relations and even affected lang
uages. The commidity of salt, for instance, is responsible for ancient
roads hundreds of miles long and charted lanes over the seas, known
! as salt routes, since they were used chiefly for bringing salt over
! the seas to countries where it coulcf not be obtained either from
; mines or salt water. Every Roman soldier was given regularly a
small amount oi money for buying salt. The Latin for salt is "sftL"
This money was called a salarium. From it our word "salary" has
All this makes for better meals, better health, better trade
relations, but we should perhaps be grateful that in this world of
commutations and permutations there remain some fixed factors,
so w>. can keep our balance in regard to geography and the calendar.
When we are working in our gardens we are working in tlisle with
I the natural elements. W; must reckon with the probabilities of frost
; and rainfall and scurry to get our seeds in as soon as the ground is
ready and to pick the last flowers before they are nipped by cold.
1 rejoice at the scientific advance which has made it possible for
us to open in Oregon a box containing a lei of swooningly sweet
ginger blossoms which were growing in Hawaii the day before, and
in Vermont to open a flower box of carnations resting on a bed of
ferns flown from Oregon. I acknowledge these things with my mind
but I greet with a special upsurge of feeling the first snowdrop which
' dares to shine by my own doorstep not too early, not too late, and
the last chrysanthemum which holds up its brave head against the
first impact of winter.
Except for nature's inexorable insistence upon the cycle of
seasons we would be in danger of losing all cosmic perspective,
i It is the fashion for Christmas carob to be heard in the streets and'
| in shops not oniy for weeks before Christmas but we may, if we wish,
listen to Handel's Messiah on the hottest day of July since music,
like other commodities, is r.ow canned.
But our gardens will remind us that ihe earth still creates its
various soils and the weather reminds us that nature still has her
immemorial successions. The Christmas Star shines according to
celestial laws regardless of advertising slogans.

FAVORS CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
Moore Farm Bureau President Tells
Directors About Amendment Proposal
How are county citizens repre
| sented in the State Legislature ?
I under the present system of
membership and how would they
be represented under the pro
posed amendment to the state's
Constitution on which the State
will vote January 14.
John Alex Smith of Vass, pres
ident of Moore County Farm
Bureau, explained the two plans
of legislative representation re
cently at a meeting of the or
ganization's county directors.
The North Carolina farm Bu
reau is on record as favoring the
Mr. Smith said:
"In a special session of tire
Legislature this past fall, the Sen
ate was redistricted for the first
time since 1941. Membership re
mained at 50; but the 33 old dis
tricts were reshaped into 36 new
ones. Changes in number of Sena
tors per district vere made ac
j cording to population changas
i since 1941, taking Senators away
! from the less populous areas and
| giving more Senators to the more
; populous areas.
"House membership, which had
been reapportioned by the 1961
Legislature, remains at 120. Each
of the 100 counties is permitted
one representative. The more
populous counties divide the ex
j tra 20 representatives.
| "The Legislature will be set up
under this system for 1965. If the
Constitutional Amendment does
not pass the people's vote on Jan
uary 14, 1964, makeup of both
the Senate and the House will
stay the same. The Senate will
have 50 members; the House 120.
"Under the amendment plan,
both houses of the legislature
would be changed, beginning
with the 1967 session. The Senate .
would be based on population ]
and the House on area.
"The Senate would have 10
members, apportioned on the
basis of senatorial district popu
lation. Each Senator would rep- ;
resent an average of 65,000 peo- |
pie. Formation of districts would i
be left up to the 1965 Legislature. (
If the job isn't done in that ses- ,
sion, it would be taken over by I
a special redisricting commis- '
sion. The House would have 100 '
members, one from each county ]
in the state." I
President Smith emphasized 1
that the amendment plan is the i
fairer to all the people of North
"It permits fair representation
because it sets up a system of
compromise on Legislation be
tween the two houses," he said.
"No particular segments of North 1
Carolina could control the whole i
I Legislature. :
