Is Third Dividend Bank Has Declared Since Its Failure (Continued from Page One) stand in the way at the time of the next dividend. Mr. Spradlin stated that three times the Elkin National Bank has used the Reconstruction Finance Corporation's money in paying divi dends, and that the two previous times these loans have been repaid much more quickly than was anti cipated. He further stated thai at this time Congressman Frank Hancock was of invaluable assis tance in putting through the present loan on a most satisfactory basis, and that so far as the loan is con cerned the money was available eome weeks ago. Mr. Hancock wrote Mr. Spradlin promptly upon the con eumation of the transaction and at the same time expressed his great pleasure that the people of the Elk in community should have this third dividend available to them before the holidays. The receiver stated that it would be of interest to the depositors to state that the present loan being used in part payment of this divi dend has been largely repaid before the dividend checks were received, and that little more than one-half of the amount available would be used at this time. Since the Elkin National Bank cloved, all of the borrowed money from the National Credit Corpora tion has been fully repaid and tbe (Federal Reserve Bank has been al most fully paid out, there being now Owing to the Federal Reserve less than (2,000.00 of the principal. When the Federal Reserve Bank has been fully paid from the notes dis counted with them, it will leave only the depositors to share in subse quent dividends, which is very much In the depositors' favor. Mr. Spradlin expressed himself as pleased with the splendid way in vhich borrowers had been respond ing to request for payment, and he ventured the prediction that if they continue to pay as they have in the past that the depositors will fare much better than many of them had expected. He further stated that while this third dividend is being paid that liquidation is not over by any means. Mr. Spradlin requested that cordial Christmas Greetings from the per sonnel of his office be extended both to depositors and debtors to the bank, and he gave his assurance that his office would continue to put forth its best efforts in the interest of all, which would be fruitful in re sults if met with full cooperation by all those interested. A LETTER FROM LITTLE MISS NORMAN Dear Editor: I am a little crippled girl. I have been an invalid practically all of my life and am confined to ray room all of the time. I have a lit tle Christmas tree in my room and it is lots of fun to be visited by oth er children and to receive presents from all that will and can, to go on my tree, as I can not go out any. Everybody is invited to come and be with me on the night of December 23, 1933. If there is any person who would like to send me a gift to go on my tree, that can not come, It will be appreciated. If you will send it by mail with your name signed to it we will have old Santa take all the gifts off the tree and state who they are fron\. IRENE NORMAN, \ State Road, N. C.

C. | A detailed outline of a program for agricultural recovery in keeping with Governor Ehringhaus' "plan and prosper" campaign has just been prepared by Charles A. Shef field, assistant extension service di rector at N. C. State College. Mr. Sheffield has made a study of the crop acreage and livestock needs of North Carolina, and hi« findings have been set forth in a special circular, just issued by the extension service. There iB still a definite need for more wheat, corn, oats, garden truck, meat and dairy products than is now being produced withia the State, he said. North Carolinians cannot be self-sufficient until they supply their own needs with foods produced at home whenever possi ble. The AAA program of reducing the production of basic commodities year will leave 600,000 North Caro line acres free for the production of food and feed crops for home con sumption, Mr. Sheffield said, and now is the logical time for farmers to begin the production of these feed and food crops. Another important matter, he said is that of increasing the State's livestock population and of giving more thought to the efficiency of farmers so that their incomes won't all be used up in defraying the cost of farm operation. A farmer barely breaking even, or losing money, will in most cases profit from the same amount of commodities if he eliminates all waste by careful planning to meet the new situation. The pamphlet may be obtained free by citizens of North Carolina upon application to the agricultural editor at State College in Raleigh. \ THE ELKIN TRIBUNE. ELKIN. NORTH CAROLINA $11,472 Sales Tax Paid In 3 Months (Continued from Page One) state took over operation of the entire eight-months school term. In taking over the schools, the state reduced the cost of operation, which in 1932 amounted to approximately (23,000,000, to approximately $16,- 000,000 for 1933, thereby resulting in a savings to the taxpayers of the state of approximately $7,000,000 in operating cost. The property tax relief afforded for the entire state amounted to $11,476,540. Sales taxes collected in Surry county for the first three months are below the average collections for the entire year as collections are being improved from month to month, But after allowing for the reasonable increase in the sales tax collections in Surry county which are anticipated, it will be observed that the property owners of the county are relieved of property taxes in the considerable amount shown and that the sales tax collections in Surry county will be far less than the property tax relief afforded. The sales tax payments are made by all of the people in the county rather than those who happen to be owners of property. More things are wrought by pray er than this world dreams of.— Tennyson.

BIG ROAD SHOW IN WINSTON-SALEM Company of Seventy Passing Thru Carolina* On World Tour Start ing In February The Tribune has been requested to announce a special midnight frolic at the Carolina Theatre in Winston- Salem, Thursday night, December 28th. For the first time in several years this section of the Piedmont is to witness an extravaganza sec ond to none, with possibly the ex ception of the new Ziegfield Follies which opened in New York a week or so ago. Because of the fact that this attraction is making a hurried trip through the Southland which will include Greensboro, Charlotte, Spartanburg, Birmingham, Atlanta, New Orleans, Dallas and other cities of the South and Southwest before sailing from San Francisco in Feb ruary for the Orient, Winston-Salem was fortunate in securing them for one performance at midnight. The Greater Marcus Show presenting "La Vie Paree" consists of a com pany of seventy people in two Pull man cars and three seventy-foot baggage cars. The big musical was designed and conceived by Mr. A. B. Marcus who decided to portray a glimpse of the night life of Paris including such resorts as the Follies Bergere, Moulin Route and Casino de Paris. While the production is in a sense sophisticated in character, fffa the management feels that it will *52 not offend anyone. It is however ifahL suggested that adolescents should *JS be admitted. fi&i "La Vie Paree" is confined some jQ what to a display of beauty, altho «S| there are novelty surprises, music J£ and dancing unlike any seen in •riM Thursday, December 21, 1933 years In the Carojinas. There are fail dancers, as well as the common place type of tap routine and drills, and even tho some have aald that it Is the type of entertainment child ren should not see, all agree that it is extraordinary entertainment"' in keeping with the frankness of larger communities who demand something different. The entire performance beginning at 12 Midnight consumes two and one-half hours, and all seats according to the Carolina manage ment are reserved, money orders or express orders will be honored for advanced reservations. The more one judges, the less one loves. —Balzac. TRUSTEE'S SALE By virtue of the authority confer red upon David B.
