OPEN TO COUNTY
Ten Dollars in Cash Will
Be Given the Winners
in Health Contest
Milk will be proclaimed the best
health builder and maintainer the
world know* by the several thousand
school children, both white and col
ored, in Martin County next week, ac
cording to information coming from
the county superintendent's office here
yesterday afternoon. Already the
"Mlk-for-Health" campaign is under
way in a number of Martin's schools,
and next week a fitting climax will
be reached, it is predicted.
To stimulate interest in the cam
paign, The Enterprise is offering six
cash prises for the best six essays pre
pared in the elementary schools on
the subject, "The Importance of Milk
As a Diet" The prizes will be divid
ed between the white and colored
schools, $2,50 being offered for the
best, $1.50 for tht second best, and $1
for the third, making a total of $5 in
the white schools and a like amount
for the colored schools.
The rules of the contest are sim
1. Any child in the elementary
schools of Martin County is eligible.
High school pupils sre not eligible
to enter the contest.
2. Essay must have as msny as 100
words and not more than 250.
3. Papers must be written in ink
and on one side of paper.
4. The writer's nsme shall not ap
pesr on the essay, but should be plain
ly written on another sheet and at

Ranking low in the list of milk con
sumers, Martin County has much to
lesrn about the healtHTul product, and
next week is an opportune time for
old and young to become cow-minded
and milk-conscioih. It is hoped that
the children will enter the contest with
an interest that will place Martin
County at the top of the list of milk
The following letter was sent out
this week by the county superintend
ent of schools to the several teachers:
"The week of March 14-20 has been
designated b£ Governor O. Max Gard
ner as Milk-For-Heslth Week. This
movement wss prompted by the fact
that less milk is being used in North
Carolina than formerly. It is desig
nsted to fit into the Governor's Live
at-home program. The State Board
of Health says that the consumption
of milk in North. Carolina is far be
low the average in the nation. Mar
tin County is right st the bottom of
the list in North Carolina. It is
thought that the shrinkage in family
budgets durng this period of depres
sion has probably caused 'an even
greater shrinkage in milk consump
tion. Since people must eat even dur
ing such periods it is highly import
ant that they eat largely of such health
ful, economical, home grown foods as
milk and dairy products.
"We are giving an outline suggest
ed by the State Board of Health: (1)
A thorough study of the conditions
surrounding your community; (2) The
importance of milk as a diet; (a) cure
for many diseases; (3) making of post
ers; (4) Having grocery men to dress
their window to carry out the 'Milk
for-Health' week; (5) Have speakers
come to yonr room snd to chapel to
discuss this with the children; (6) On
Friday have the classes contribute
their reaction at the chapel period.
"Use any plan, method, or means
that will help the people to realize the
importance of this vital problem. It
is the duty of the tescher to teach
these people to live and there will be
no better opportunity offered to you
"We are sure that the teachers in
Martin County will cooperate in this
great program and that much food
will come to its milk-hungry children."

Liquor law violations in the lower
part of Free Union, this county, took
on a serious atmosphere yesterday aft

Mr. Frank D. Grist, candidate for

Loans Will Bear Interest
At 5 1-2 Per Cent; Many
Expected To Apply
Application blanks and notes, crop
liens and other papers necessary in
asking for loans from the' Federal gov
ernment under the seed and feed
act were received here late yester
day afternoon, and today arrange
ments are under way for floating the
loans. County Agent T. B. Brandon
announced this morning.
Approximately two million dollars
have been allotted this state, it is un
derstood, although no county allot
ment has been mentioned. However,
200 application blanks were received
here, and it is believed that it will
be possible for Martin farmers to bor-" 1 ,
row around $20,000; provided they
are willing to agree to cut certain
crop acreages, and plant a garden and
sufficient feed crops.
Mr. W. T. Meadows , has been ap
pointed to filljiut the blanki, for which
he will receife a nominal sum, to be
paid by the person applying for the
loans. Mr. Meadows has agreed to
I fill out all blanks in the sum of SIOO
or less for 50 cents each, and all over
SIOO he is tc recvive $1 each. Mr.
Meadows vill be in his office at l!.e

25-acre farmer would get $72 for six

corn, $36 for six* acre of peanuts: $24
for three acres of cotton; $24 for one
acre of sweet potatoes, and s2t for
four acres of hay or oats, making a
tota.l under that planting schedule, of
$2lO, the maximum loan. If the farm
er planted six acres of tobacco last
year, he will be required to reduce it
just about one-third, or plant only
about four acres this year. If a farm
er planted over 10 acres of cotton, he
will have to reduce that acreage about
one-third, but a farmer planting only
10 acres last year can plant the same
amount this year and get loans based
on $8 art acre.
The loans, created to h?lp those
farmers who absolutely can not help
themselves, will bear interest at the
rate of 5 1-2 per cent, payable next
November. They are more drastic
in their requirements than they were
last year, making it necessary, in some
cases, for the farmer to show how he
spent the money. He must show that
he is making arrangements to plant
a garden and plant sufficient feed
Misrepresentation in applying for
loans and filling out the blanks is
punshable by a SI,OOO fine and six
months in prison.
Many applications will be refuted,
and in those cases all papers signed
by the applicant will be returned to
him- r : 1 : _
Applicants should remember that
much time is necessary in completing
the loans, that once the applications
are forwarded to the government for
approval, the applcant will hear direct
from the government whether it is
approved or disallowed.
