Measles Epidemic Likelv To Spread To County Schools (Continued from page one) cause real trouble for several rea sons. Some of the cases of measles are German measles in which the quarantine period is seven days and the disease is not dangerous, while other cases are Red measles, which are quarantined for 14 days and can kill. When the case has been a light one of Red measles the parents get in a hurry to keep the child in school and then trouble starts two ways. It is not safe and others think that sev- ; en days is all that all measles should he quarantined Whooping cough is hard to diag nose If the child whoops or vomits, and the cough is spasmodic in char acter. anyone can tell what it is but many of these cases never whoop or vomit, so the wise mother when j she knows or thinks her child has been exposed to the disease and a cough develops, will treat it as whooping cough until it proves oth erwise Such a mother willv under stand her physician when he in forms her that he is suspicious and for the safety of the public is ie porting to the health department which can recall quarantine if. he de rides it is not whooping cough My experience in several instances has been w hen German measles, art being reporu-d it means then arc several light cases ol scarlet fever in ; the community which are being diag nosed by parents. No matter how light a case of scarlet fever, it is wise to have a physician in attendance. Martin County Health Department ; is warning the public of the quaran tine laws we are expected to enforce but first of all we are warning the parents when the child has an errup tion of any kind or a cough that pe r sists for a few days, Call Your Doe tor Si\l\ Students To Represent Local Schools In Contest (Continued from page one) ed for the Greenville competition villi be presented in assembly at the high school next Wednesday morn ing at 1CT30 ThV.puMy: ig-tordially invited to be present The following students are in the glee club and mixed chorus Ruth Ward.

Their i. soil a ? doubt about the value in running hog> in a pea : nut field where the crop lias been hat vested, experts pointing out that a hog roots the fat off as rapidly as: he puts it on Htigging down" crops is appar- i ently becoming more popular, the | specialist pointing out that the prac tice savos much labor The value of i "hogging down" oats, wtieat and bar ley was pointed out. the specialist > stating that oats are a good feed for i hogs He,offered a formula for crop I production in connection with swine raising and at the same time assur ing sanitary conditions. For spring farrowing plant small grain and clover or oats and rape. In the fall, sow small grain for harvest, and continue the rotation method." he said Questioned about the value of var ious feeds, Mr, Vestal said: Lespe deza is a splendid feed. Wheat is an other good feed for growing, but not so good for "finishing" the hog for market. Sweet potatoes are worth about ^one-thud jis much for feed as L'orn About three and one-half pounds of Irish potatoes will equal about one pound of corn us a hog feed. Cabbage will do for hogs, but jo nut use them as a feed within two Weeks of marketing time Cotton >eed meal can be fed in any quantity 1 as long as the animal has some green feed along with it There is an apparent shortage of minerals and green feed in the diet , ?f hogs raised in this county, and u special formula was suggested sim ilar to the one offered for cattle by Agent Hill Hays at a previous meet- j uig of the farm group The meeting, touching on nearly evrey phase of hog raising and mar- J keting, proved quite interesting, and the farmers |>ossibly asked mole question:- than at any previous meet j nig. * Sweet potato diseases will be the discussion topic for the next meeting [ to he held on April 7.

Where a sign similar to; the one pictured above is displayed, it will be found that the business man as well as the farmer is benefit ting from the Supplementary Cot ton Program. Details of the plan may be learned from county farm and home agents of the State College Extension Service, or from county and community AAA committee men. THE RECORD SPEAKS . . . Martin County motorists piled wreck on wreck to put the 1941 accident count to date ahead of the record established in the corresponding period in 1940. Fortunately the fifteen or more victims escaped with their lives, one report staling that only three of that number were hurt If a history of accidents is worth anything, motorists would do well to recognize the cold facts and place a greater value on the rules of safety The following tabulations of fer a comparison of the accident trend: first, by corresponding weeks in this year and last and for each year to the present time. 12th Week Comparison Accidents Inj'd Killed Dam'ge 1941 4 :i . 0 $ 429 1940 3 0 0 325 Comparison To Date 1941 20 10 2 $1744 1940 25 10 0 $2463 Several Are Hurt In S< 'lies 01 Auto Accidents Sunday (Continued from page one) $200.

Stalls reported to Patrolman Saunders that he gave the proper I signal for the turn. No one was hurt. Cost Of Living Has Boon Pretty Stable Cost of living has been, all things | considered, pretty stable despite war economy". "Hie Department of j Labor's index for same is now only about 2 per cent higher than in Au gust, 1939, the month before out break of war Yet officials in Wash ington fear that as production be gins to roll, shortages in materials will cause sharper rises in prices of consumer goods, setting off cycle of higher living costs, more wage in crease demands to meet them, con sequent increase in labor trouble, leading hack again to more short - ages, in manufactured goods. Miss Harriet Elliott, consumer commis sioner of NDAC. has made public some suggestions on general pricing policies to forestall rises as much as possible. Main points arr that (1) retail price advances should not be made on basis of anticipated cost in cieases, only actual ones; (2) that when prices of new goods advance, inventories should be averaged-out instead of flatly marked up to new level; (S) that traditional mark-up should not be applied proportionate ly to new goods that cost the retail (, ran villi' Terracing I nit To Turn Out Record Work If weather conditions are favor able. the Granville County terracing unit will turn out a record amount of work this spring, reports Assist ant Farm Agent W f3 Jones er more, except so far as to cover increases in general costs of operat ing the store.
