whose names do not begin with one
of the above letters cannot apply
for re-issuance . of license in this
The period beginning January !,
1948, and ending-June 30, 1948,
will be the time for all operators
whose sur-nanies begin witn eitner
of the letters C or D to apply for
re-issuance of licenses. All Motor
Vehicle drivers-who sur-names De
gin with a letter other than A, B,
C, or D will be notified by press
releases at the proper time as to
when -they should appear for the
The operator's license issued
under the 1947 Safety Act shall
automatically expire on the birth
day pf licenses in the fourth year
following the year of issuance, and
no license shall be issued to any
operator after the expiration of blr

again passed the required examin
ation. Si-: '.-- -
Everyone will get a complete ex
amination; The examination ' is
made up of four parts. These parts
are: (1) Tn Eye test (2) Highway
Sign test (3) Driving Rules test
(4) Road test
The poorest visual reading that
will permit passing with glasses Is
20-50. This may be with both eyes
together, or It may be with best
eye alone. TheSign test consists
of the showing to the applicant
several pictures containing High
way Warning signs. The applicant
will be requested to tell what a
driver s'-v 1 do when he comes
the Grady team places as follows:
Parliamentary procedeure, 2nd
place; Public speaking, 2nd D'ace;
Crops contest, 3rd place.
five simple questions that deal with
the safe operation of a motor ve
hicle. The Road test will consist of
a drive of some 12 to 15 city
blocks.n the past some applicants
have begun road tests with the un
derstanding that the Examiner
would tell him to pass red lights,
exceed speed limits, and otherwise
drive Improperly. This, however,
has not been the policy in North
Carolina nor will It be during this
Previous practices governing the
issuance and use of Learners Per
mits will not be changed. The only
change that will occur with re
spect to fees charged will be the
increase in the cost of an operator s
license from one to two dollars.

Maintaining Culls :
North Carolina poultrynien are
losing several million dollars each "
year in the form of feed bills by"
keeping culls in their laying flocks.
Culling of laying birds should be '
a routine procedure of the practi-' ..
cal poultry man, however, this is not -carried
on as strict a basis as it " '
should be done, and considerable'.'
loss results. "
A laying bird will consume about
nine pounds of feed a month, which.
if figured -at 4Mi cents pound,
would amount to over 40 cents a
bird. With feed representing sixty
percent of the cost of production,
it can easily be figured how many
eggs a chicken must lay to pay the
cost of maintaining It
