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. THANKSGIVING DAY 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." DRIVERS' LICENSE 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 quota. 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 t,pa83 some kind of test before they are licensed to drive a car on the highways. ., Judge Walter H. Oakey, Jr., in passing sentence in one of the few traffic violation: cases brought into has court n; recent months, took occasion to remark that there was too much disregard of traffic regulations, call- ing'attention to the appallingly large; -number of deaths in the State due' to carelessness, and stated that automobiles., were frequently driven on we streets or Hertford, particu lariy in coming into Church Street -over the Perquimans River Bridge, at a dangerous and unlawful rate of peed.' 2 It Is a fact that automobiles are riven around the slight curve in , jChurch Street just off the bridge, and ,? on up the street, at a terrifflc rate of f speed. This' is . not occasional. , It J occurs every day and many times, a ,Iay, in plain view of any one who Way look to see. That there is dan ; ger in such; excessive speed rates on narrow streets is indisputable. Why is it allowed? forgotten Sire" Dairy's Drawback Large Group of Young Bulla With Unknown Ability as Breeders. ... 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 dairy herds. 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 satisfactory breeder. 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 gle season, , the orat-generation being a crawling Insect which can be con trolled by the creosote harriers, but the second generation, flying, Is not halted by this form of control.

Hops for Fertilizer Hops from a brewery are excellent as a source of Introducing bumus to the soil. Any form of vegetative growth, even weeds supply this neces sary matter.

Here's one answer to your question reaching Raleigh. You remember that last February Postmaster General James A. Farley put the skids under many airline corporations with mail con tracts.

Result the post office department is expected to lose much of its profitable business and Congress will ask why. The air. lines will offer the same speed to mails with fatter contracts. That may or may not be the 'motive but 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 the cat ate the pot-hook.
