A CALL TO OCR HOUSEKEEPERS.
Save Meat. Wheal. Fat. and Sugar
and Thus Give Substantial Aid to
Our Allies. I se a Little Leg* Sugar
and lie Careful to I'se Only
Enough and Waste Nothing.
Mrs. Jane S. McKimmon, State
Agent, Division of Homo Economics,
"I nm thrilled when I think of the
part the housewife can play in our
country's plans for winning this war.
She has suddenly boon elevated to the
position where she holds in her hand
the power to increase or diminish at
will the distributing power of the
country's food supply. There ic not
a doubt that housewives understand
well what a serious thing: the short
age of wheat, meat, fats and sweets
is to our Allien on the other side, but
it is hard for any woman to believe
that the small economies and denials
she might practice in her own home
\^ould in the aggregate make an enor
mous difference in what this country
would be able to ship to n suffering
"One ytar ago the English citizen
was restricted to three-fourths of a
pound of sugar per week; in this
country the amount of sugar used per
person for the sjme length of time
was one end three-fourth pounds. If
the Englishman did not t.uffer in
health with his limited amount of
sweets, is it not possible for us, the
housewives of America, to try cutting
off at least three-fourths of a pound
of sug.-r per person from our families'
weekly supply? Much of our one and
three-fourth pounds of sugar goes off

cups undissolved or is put in an over
sweetened dessert. While the need for
sharing with our brothers across the
waters is sog resit, could we not make
one and one-half teaspoonfuls do
where two were required before, by
using a little extra effort in stirring
to dissolve it, or in giving up favor
ite desserts, and using instead our
own sweet potatoes and fruits, canned
or fresh, which need so little addition
"With meal our problem is going to
be harder. We are so ncui tomed to
its delicious flavors, and our families
are ro dependent on what they call
the main dish of the mcnl, that much
ingenuity in selection of substitutes
and careful methods of preparation
are going to be necessnry. It is the
study of how to prepare appeaizing
substitutes for meat and wheat flour
that all of us need if we expect to
keep a satisfied household. We can
do it, women, and for our own satis
faction it will be internet ing to keep
accounts of just how much we have
saved by our efforts.
"The South has already done much
in substituting corn meal for wheat
flour, but we can substitute still
farther, since substitution has become
such a vital question. We may add
cotton-seed and soybean meal to our
wheat bread, and by so doing add also
to our supply of meat substitutes, as
these products contain in different
form the protein so valued in meat.
"If the garbage pail is to be reduc
ed until it will hold only the coffee
grounds and the egg shells, wo women
can bcc that it is kept small by hav
ing our family consume every parti
cle that is taken upon the plate, and
"the gospel of the clean plate" will
spread the country over.
"The United States Food Commis
sion has called upon all women who
have charge of a household to sign a
food pledge card. This crrd asks that
. t_ __ _ i .. i _ U . ir i
ine nousi'wu? pieu^ts n' r>?'u w mivc
particularly the things I have men
tioned: meats, sweets, fnt3, and wheat.
Pcrhups many of us already have
signed a similar card, but inn spite of
that fact, we are psked to go again
on Saturday, the 20th of October, to
the nearest school house, hear an ex
planation of what Mr. Hoover is ask
ing all of us who ?ro willing* to do
our very best to assist him in ^his
great food conservation movement.
To you women who did so much in
the summer in planting a grrden and
in saving the products of that garden
by canning and drying, I make a spe
cial appeal. Come to the school house
| on registration day and bring every
housewife whom you can with you.
"North Carolina wishes to stand in
the very front of the list of States
when the patriotic womon of the
country are registered, and you can
do much in placing her there. The
Governor is to issue a proclamation
9 calling on all housewives to register
for the conservation of food on the
20th of October. Let us respond as
patriotically as did our sons and
brothers when they were called to reg
ister for military service."
Greensboro and Goldsboro Fairs.
The County Fairs at Greensboro
and Goldsboro opened Tuesday. The
cold ra.'n interfered badly with the
Fair at Greensboro and a small crowd
was in attendance. At Goldsboro bet
ter weather prevailed and a big crowd
turned out. The rains in the after
noon prevented the races.

SOME ( AMI* JACKSON NOTES.
The Johnston County boys here at |
visited the camp last Monday for a
Camp Jackson are learning "to sol
dier" right along. Some of the boys
who left home since September 6th
are already acting as corporals, po
licemen, etc. We of Company II,
821st Regiment, think we have the
best captain down here, lie is doing
all he can to gi t married men releas
ed from the service, and several of
them will soon know again the qui
etude of home-life.
Mr. W. A. Rose, trf Rocky Mount,
was here during the past week for a
few hours. He has several friends
here who were greatly rejoiced at
unexpected appe arance.
Mr. John P. Eldridpcc left today on
a short leave of absence to visit the
home folks near Glen wood.
j The ; nnitary conditions of the camp
t are superior to those of any town we j
have ever visited. None wf the John
ston County boys have been very sick
since their arrival, except from inoc
The officers here are of the opinion
that by January first we shall sail
for Franco where our training will be
completed by next spring. By that
time the National Army will be remiy
to strike the enemy, and we are Amer
ican enough to think that that will
be the beginning of the end.
Every mother in the United States
who nas a son in me army ougtu to
pray for the V. M. C. A. and the Red
Cross. Those two print organizations
are the soldiers' pood nngels. A sol
dier never enters the Y. M. C. A.
without hearing the inviting tones of
the Victrola or the pinno. Three times
every week they eomc to the Y. M. C.
A. and hear the best religious service
thut can be had. The Y. M. C. A. men
themselves are the ^dandiest kind of
fellows. One may stay on his feet for
ten hours, but no worry will cause his
face to frown or his speech to be
sharp. If a fellow from the big woods
comes in and asks if postal cards
will have to be stamped or if stamps
in stamp-books are as good as any
other, the Y. M. C. A. man never
laughs the scornful laugh, but advis
es the soldier as sincerely as though
he were explaining the Liberty Bond
or concert schedules.

Do you realize what the present prices for Farm Products mean?
Do you realize that Farming has become about the most profitable
business in which one can engage? Do you not know that, with
the prevailing prices for everything that is grown in Mother Faith,
you can pay for a farm in two or three years, or perhaps less?
Don't you know, too, that the price of land is bound to go up? It is
tjie prevailing opinion that cotton and tobacco will remain as high,
or higher, for the next four or five years.
If You Don't buy and Pay For a Farm
During Ti mes Like These When
Will You Ever Own One?
If you have a few hundred dollars to pay down on a place we can
arrange the balance on such terms that you would not be called on
to pay out much, if any, more each year than the annual rent would
