Mr. Turner stated t ftV nnnnonl Imnrln nnl Anl maw farmers' could expect the same kind of prices for produce in 1956 and possibly 1957 that WieV receiv ed during the current year.

Cotton ' will.: be about 'steady,' with 1955 or down some what. Sweet potatoes, cabbage, early potatoes and green vege tables T-r prices will probably be higher in J956 than in 1955. : wThis. is the :. commodity outlook for the coming year, as predicted by the economists that study the production and consumption and base their predictions along with this study and .the past trends of the market. It might be a good idea to base your farm enterprise so as to try to have in 1966 those products that look most favorable for 1956. " Central PTA Meets Next Monday Night - The .

Recorder's Court In Recess Tuesday Perquimans Recorder's Court was in recess last Tuesday during the November term of Superior Court. All cases listed for hearing by the Recorder were set for trial at the November 29 term of Re corder's Court.- Unknown Cases Of Health Problem The unknown cases of tubercu losis, even more than the known cases, reveal the seriousness of TB as a public health problem in North Carolina. This view was expressed by Dr. William A. Smith, Chief of the Tuberculosis Control Section of the State Board of Health. "People who have tuberculosis without knowing it present the most serious threat," according to Dr. Smith. "It js estimated that in the United States there are 150, 000 active unknown cases, and we can logically assume that North Carolina has its proportionate share." Dr. Smith pointed out that 2,013 people were reported to the N. C. State Board of Health last year for the Qirst time as having tubercu losis, and added to the reservoir of known cases out of which spread of the disease is possible. He em phasized that this figure -does not represent, all cases, as many peo people who have tuberculosis do not seek medicfel kdlyic '4id! ne- are not cjifignosed. J ; ; ' ' ' "159 of the newly reported cas es . last year were active," Dr. Smith said and pointed out that this represented an increase of 109 in the same category over last year. In discussing the threat of the person with tuberculosis who does not know it, Dr. Smith emphasized that the person who knows that he has tuberculosis can be isolated to prevent the spread of the disease. "If the case is found early enough," Dr. Smith said, "it can be treated and cured." "Such is not the case with un known tuberculosis," he said. "Tu berculosis will remain a problem Land a threat until all unknown cas es are found and put under treat ment." - He emphasized that 2,013 peo ple were reported as having tuber culosis for the first time to the State Board of Health in 1954, but cautioned that this does not repre sent the total number of people in the state who have the disease. "North Carolina logically has its share of the 150,000 unknown cas es of tuberculosis, in the United tSates," he said. Dr. Smith urged the support of every citizen in finding unknown tuberculosis. He said they could help by supporting the casefinding activities of their local health de partment and getting a chest X-ray every year. ' : Y' ':' ' ' . In concluding the discussion, Dr. Smith referred to the trend of de tecting more cases of tuberculosis in the older age groups. Once con sidered a disease of youth and young . adults,, tuberculosis now makes its greatest impact in the age group over 45. -r Jessup-Batts Vows Spoken At Wilson i .The marriage of Mrs. Zazelle S.

Since then Estes Kefauver has indicated that he will "also seek the office. Averell Harriman, it is reported, is a likely candidate but thus far he has kept his intention under wraps. The Republicans, awaiting a sec ond term decision from President Eisenhower, have sent up a few trial balloons for several prominent members of the party, but Chief Justice Warren and Richard Nixon appear as the main contestants in the event President Eisenhower re tires. The results of the Geneva Con ference were given consideration at a meeting .e'f the .Security Council held at the President's office in Gettysburg, iPa.,. -Tuesdayj. .after ' which,, some of the findings were j djscu'ssed at a Cabinet session at; tended by the President. Some changes in U. S.. attitude on for-1 eign policy is predicted following Russian refusal to agree to a so lution to European problems. Winter weather covered most of the U. S. last week-end. Snow storms were reported over most of the northern half of the nation, while chilly winds swept deep into the south. A violent storm of hur ricane force struck a radar station off Cape Cod, Mass., badly dam aging the huge tower. -.
