THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
LET US GIVE THANKS: Bless
ing, and glory, and wisdom, and
thanksgiving, and honour, and power,
and might, be unto our God for ever
and ever. Revelations 7:12.
What have you to be thankful for?
Do you have to stop and think?
Or are you so conscious of the thou
sand and one things simple, homely
things, to be sure, of your everyday
life, for which you feel gratitude
every day, that there is no need to
grope about in your consciousness for
the reasons for your thankfulness?
If you do not have to stop to think
about it, to enumerate this and that,
if you are one of those fortunate souls
who take pleasure in simple things,
who enjoys every little ray of sun
shine, to whom falling rain drops
can bring- gladness, who sees beauty
in life's commonplace happenings,
who finds pleasure in service and is
content with little, who can be happy
in the happiness of another, you are
fortunate and you will be thankful,
no matter what your lot may be.
Because whether you are grateful
to God on this Thanksgiving Day or
not does not depend so much upon
what you have to be thankful for, as
it depends upon the state of your own
heart, for, after all, "The Kingdom of
Hea-en lies within you."
Why are traffic law violations in so
many instances, particularly with re
gard to speeding, ignored in Hert
ford? As the number of deaths from
automobile accidents in North Caro
lina increases by leaps and bounds,
with the accidents almost invariably
the result of carelessness on the part
of some driver, it is high time we
should 3ee to it that trafnc law viola
tors at home are restrained. We
cajuiot help the high death rate from
automobile accidents in other sections
of our State, of course, but we could
do something to avoid adding our own
During the first ten months of this
year no less than 717 persons were
killed on the highways of North
Carolina in automobile accidents.
That people grow more careless every
day is evidenced by the fact that
through a similar period last year
only 578 persons were killed in auto
mobile accidents in the State.
Incidentally, while North Carolina
occupies twelfth place in population,
she ranks eighth place in the number
of deaths from automobile accidents.
This, no doubt, is due to the fact that
North Carolina makes no restrictions,
except those with respect to age, as
to who shall or shall not drive an
automobile on its highways. Mogt of
the states require automobile drivers

they are licensed to drive a car on the

Large Group of Young Bulla
With Unknown Ability
By W. W. Tapp, Chief In Dairy Cattla, Unl
raralty of IUInola. WfUl SarvlM.
Tbe "forgotten man" has his cham
pions, but too little has bfen said and
done about the "forgotten sires" of
By the "forgotten sires" reference Is
made to that large group of young
dairy bulls whose breeding ability Is
still an unknown quality but whose
progeny will wield a potent Influence
on dairy returns In years to come.
These progeny will produce more than
90 per cent of all milk and dairy prod
ucts consumed In the five years from
1937 to 1941 Inclusive.
Most progressive dairymen would
rather use a "proved" slre.'as deter
mined by the number of pounds of
milk and butterfat the bull's daughters
will produce In a year's time. This
Is as It should be. However, under tho
present system of proving dairy bulls,
only one In fifty Is likely to become a
proved sire, and all those not In this
select group are "forgotten."
Mere attention needs to be given to
the physical appearance of these bulls
and to the performance of their dams
and sires If the future of the dairy
Industry Is to be safeguarded. The
physical characteristics of the young
bull should, of course, be considered
carefully, if he Is to sire the future
producers of the herd. In addition the
dairyman should investigate the char
acteristics of the bull's sire and dam.
If obtainable, the records Qf full broth
ers and sisters, and even of half broth
ers and half sisters, will furnish valu
able, evidence in determining the trans
mitting ability of a young sire. If a
dairyman can find a young bull whose
sire has ten or more unselected daugh
ters that are highly productive and
whose dam has three or more good
daughters, he can feel reasonably as
sured that the young sire will make a
Corn Stover Low Protein
Feed and Needs Balance
The loss In dry matter In eorn sto
ver approximates 24 per cent while the
loss In ensiling corn need not be more
than 10 per cent This emphasizes the
value of ensiling In so far as possible
this year; says Hoard's-Dairyman. How
ever, bright corn stover that has been
properly shocked can be made a val
uable part of the ration this winter.
Shredding, grinding, or cutting may be
advisable In order to get the cows to
eat the entire plant. Also the conserv
ative use. of molasses mixed with wa
ter and sprinkled over this roughage
may add to its palatabiliry and feed
ing value slightly.
Corn stover Is a low protein feed
and to balance It we must feed a high
protein grain mixture. We recommend
1 to 2 per cent of the grain mixture be
ground limestone, marl, oyster shell, or
special steamed bone meal. Bone meal
and salt mixed half and half and fed
as salt alone Is usually fed, will also
give the necessary mineral protection.
The analysis of corn stover Is 2.1 per
cent digestible crude protein; 46.1 per
cent total digestible nutrients.
Chinch Bug War Hard
Congress In the last session voted
an appropriation of a million dollars to
halt the ravages of the chinch bug In
the corn belt and this money was used
to build barriers totaling 30,000 miles
along which creosote halted the ad
vance of the Insects, i Toe chinch bug,
however, has two generations 4n a sin

a crawling Insect which can be con

the post office department is expected
to lose much of its profitable business
and Congress will ask why. The air.

youll agree that it makes sense.
PRINTING Perhaps you have
heard the rumor that the State ex
pects to greatly expand its printing
plan at. the Central Prison in Raleigh.
That as one of Highway and Public
Works Chairman E. B. Jeffress' pet
ideas but now he is critically ill in
his home in Greensboro and not ex
pected to recover. New quarters wvill
be provided for the print shop when
the prison is remodeled but a question
mark surrounds the printing business.
Mr. Jeffress was the only official that
knew much about it and the matter
of expansion is likely to hang fire for
the present. At any rate, equipment
will be added slowly by degrees, like
