Farm Picture Has
Bright. Dark Sides
In an outlook message to North
Carolina farm families. Dean I O
Schaub. director of the State Col
lege Extension Service, says that i
the agricultural picture for 1941 has
both a birght and a dark side
On the bright side he lists Poultry,
with an expected increase in domes
tic demand. Dairying, with some in
crease expected in exports, better
buying power, and a favorable feed
situation; Hogs. Cattle and Sheep,
with slaughter supplies lower than
in 1940 and a larger domestic con
sumer demand along with better
prices to producers, and Fruits, which
face a better demand even though
larger plantings generally are being
On the dark side of the picture are
listed Tobacco, with vital export
markets closed and only the AAA
farm program, assured for three
years, as the stabilizing factor in
price. Cotton, with a world supply
larger than ever, reduced foreign
markets, and no change in price ex
pected in 1941; Peanuts, with the
price determining! factor supplied by
the Government diversion program
although a somewhat better domes
tic demand is anticipated; and Cost
of Farming, which will be higher i
although somewhat offset by increas
ed prices for the things the farmer
has to s>ell
With these f av t s m mind. ?De?n ;
Sfhanh urged that ' we set qui rural;
house in order that we may be ready
for any eventuality " He suggests
that any repairs needed now about
-the-honrr- ttr farmstead should he
attended to at once. Reserves of
food and feed should be saved; pure
bred sires should be secured to head
flocks and herds; and supplies of the
best farm seeds should be procured.
In .general." In dec lared, "the
farm should be made ready ready
for whatever inay happen "

And Power Company
In the early days the Anglo-Sax
on race used Lericten and the Ger
mans Lonz. both terms meaning
Springtime"?from these the term
lent was derived. Lent in the Christ
ian Church means fasting the forty
days preparatory to the festival of
Easter. From the earliest times this,
custom was enjoined on the Christ
ian Church requiring all Catholic
Christendom the fast from Ash Wed
nesday to Holy Saturday (excluding i
all Sundays). This was strictly en
forced not only by ecclesiastical but
by statute laws until the 9th century.
In the middle ages during the Lenc
ten period all meat, eggs and milk
were forbidden in the diet and fish
was the. chief food. Often only one
meal a day was allowed and that in >
In these modern days the burdens *
of restrictions are somewhat light- !
ened. At present no rules for fast- i
ing are authoritative, the duty of
abstinence is now very generally in
culcated by bishops and clergy; ei
ther as a form of discipline or as an
exercise of self-denial, whether this
he in the form of pleasures, drinks,
or the eating of various foods.

...new engineering development assures
better, more economical light-traffic
roads for your community
Thij new kind of road is called
Soil-Cement.. . based on the
discovery that when you mix
cement carefully with roadway
soil, and compact it, you have a
itrong, durable pavement for your
light traffic roads. The method,
though scientific, is easy. First
come laboratory tests to learn
the exact amounts of cement and
moisture needed.Then the high
way engineers use these tests
to guide them in construction.
Inexpensive equipment is used.
Soil-Cement Proved in Service
Hundredf of miles of Soil -Cement
roads now in use hare peeved
the durability of this construc
tion for light traffic roads.
Seil-Cement it not intended fee
art* on be*vj duty ro*di. For such
roads portland cement concrete
is the most economical pavement.
Soil-Cement does offer new
economy and uniformity for
light traffic roads. Urge your offi
cials to build with Soil-Cement.
