State Food "Administrator Henry
A. Pasre notifies the newspapers of
the State that the Food Administra
tion is rapidly slowing down, and
will, within a few days be a thing of
the past. He thanks the newspapers
of the State for the part they have
done in helping the Administration.
There is no way of measuring ' the
benefits of the State Food Adminis
tration in North Carolina. Mr. Hoo
ver certainly made no mistake in se
lecting Mr. Page as the head of his
organization in this State. He has
been a source of comfort to the law
abiding and a terror to the law
breaker. ' '

Editor Polk County NEWS.
In a recent issue of your paper
your ishtcp correspondent raises
the old question of providing a coun
ty farm for the unfortunate of Polk
county. Mr. Editor, if my memory
serves me right, an issue of bonds to
the amount of $20,000 for the purpose
of court house improvement and a
county farm was made a few years
ago. None of it was ever spent on
the court house, and we have no coun
ty farm. Perhaps you, Mr. Editor,
can tell tne tax payers of. this county
for what purpose this money was ex
pended. We are" certainly entitled to
Miss Mary Mills and her nephew
went visiting Sunday , last.
Mr. H. H. McCrain made a busi
ness trip to Big Level, last Friday.
Guess the blacksmith could relate
Mrl McCrain's business down there.
. Mr..McMurray,has been very ill.
glad to say he is improving.
The farmers of this section are
getting along very slowly with their
farm work, owing to the bad weath
er." Probably they will get a move
cn themselves later on.
