Welfare Departments Carrying Out State Recreation Program By Harold t). Meyer, Director N. C. Recreation Commission Recreation as a state-spcmsored activity is a new practice in America developed in the past few months as another "North Carolina first" since the 1946 General Assembly set up the North Carolina Recreation Com-; Already the work is moving for ward in various communities through the intense interest of local groups and of the county departments of public welfare. There is an excel lent opportunity in each of the 100 counties to provide recreation for all ages and all groups because much of the 'possibilities have not as yet been touched. Especially notable is the coopera tion developed between the Recrea tion Commission and county welfare departments in Pender, Person, Ma con, Onslow, Yadkin and Yancey counties. Yancey has developed a county-wide plan of recreation while in other localities the interest of civic groups has been aroused in support of planned recreation. Model ordinances giving a legal basis to local recreation commissions have been set up in which it ih re quired that one member of the local board of recreation be selected from the county welfare agency, another from the county health department, and another from the school system. The law setting forth the duties of county superintendents of public welfare calls on them to cooperate with existing agencies in the de velopment of wholesome recreation facilities in the community. Thus county welfare workers are doubly interested in the program since they are professionally interested in the betterment of community life and facilities. The Recreation Commission al ready is beginning to work with state institutions in the development of programs for the leisure activities of inmates. Notable in this respect is the work now going on at the State School for the Deaf at Mor gan ton. Considerable possibilities still remain in institutional recrea tion through the establishment of more effective contacts with all state institutions including all the prison campe. -:)H The object of recreation under the North Carolina program is to pro vide leisure-time activities not only for adults but for all children in a community, especially the under privileged ones. The best develop ment will be through a program operated as a separate unit of local governmental service. The scope of the service is too large to be includ ed as a direct duty of any other I county official and actual direction | of recreation should be the responsi bility of a separate local staff. Church recreation possibilities are opening up, a factor' which is es pecially valuable in rural areas where the rural churches can. be made centers of general community activities. This will not only be service to the people of a rural com- j munity but will increase their in terest and attraction toward the! specifically religious programs ofj the church. A great need in North Carolina is a well-directed program of re , creation in hospitals of all types? public hospitals for physical ail NOTICE OF ELECTION Pursuant to an Order of the Clerk of Superior Court,, notice is hereby given that an election-will be held on Monday, August 12, 1946, to elect three (3) persons to serve as Board of Commissioners for the Pitt County Drainagje District No. 1, their terms of office to begin on October 1, 1946. This election necessary to replace the vacancy of John T. Thorne, Chairman, who died on June 14th and R. A. Joyner and B. S. Lewis, whose terms have ex pired. Each person owning land in the district has one (1) vote for each acre of land owned. Polls to be opened at the Town Hall in Town of Farmville, North Carolina, from 7. A. M. to 7 P.

This will come about as the interest of tha people in each community awakens to the value of supplying- supervised leisure-time activities for all reai dents. "* School building* during the sum mer months and at night during the week, present another local resource in development of community recrea tion. Most of these facilities have playground or gymnasium equip ment and all of them have auditori um facilities where the more cul tural aspects of recreation can be provided. Wider use of these plants depends on the awakening of local determination to provide this ser-1 vice. The State Recreation Commission does not attempt to interfere with any program already operated by I another agency; its pufpoee is to move in where its aid is asked in development of local programs. The Governor, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Commissioner of Public Welfare, director of the Depart ment of Conservation and Develop ment are ex officio members of the Recreation Commission and tie in with its work any activities which are the responsibility of their re spective agencies. Thus in developing a complete program of recreation in all North Caro/ina communities the combined efforts of numerous agencies and groups will be required. Particular ly fitted for this cooperative effort are the county welfare agencies from which many suggestions can come for future development. Workers on these staffs, in constant contact with the less privileged of the com munity, can funnel to local recrea tion commissions or to the state commission suggestions for improve ments and can call attention to par ticular needs. We look forward to each week-end, expecting to do a whale of a lot of work, but seldom accomplish much. NOTICE OF SALE !

Garriss Peanuts Be Dusted I Leafspot diseases have already appeared in the peanut crepe of Eaatern Carolina and Howard Gar rias, Extension plant pathologist at Statp College, has recommended that dusting with copper-sulphur dust mixtures begin at once. "I should like to encourage "pea nut growers to start dusting as soon as possible, even though the plants are small," Gerries said. Copper sulphur dust mixtures give better leafspot control than either copper or'sulphur dusts alone. The mixture should contain four to six per cent copper, by weight "Since the plants are small new 12 to 16 pounds of dust per acre will be sufficient for the first applica tion. Three or four applications put on at two-week intervals axe re quired. In the event of rain soon after a dusting, another should be put on as quickly aa possible. Later as the plants grow larger 16 to 20 pounds of dust must be used per acre. "The, dust may be applied at any time during the day. However many growers say best results are obtained if dusting is confined to early mor ning and late afternoon. A few far mers apply their dust on moonlight nights. "If the copper-sulphur mixture is put on the plants in the recommen ded amounts and at two-weeks inter vals leafspot diseases will cause lit tle damage to the peanut crop." Excessive dignity can be painful for those who must put up with it. LQ?K! ELECTRIC IRONS! A TtKklFIC VALUI $gJO Add 33* lor pottage a Cool, Ea.z/-Grip Handla.1 . ? Convenient Siz??weight 4V4 lb*. ?
