That certainly was a nice turnout |
for the Farm Bureau meeting held in
the armory last Wednesday evening. I
A fair guess would place the number |
present close to 350. The fish was j
delicious, and the corn bread as good |
as cake. A glad hand to outgoing
President Will Harrell and all who
served as officers. Congratulations
to all new officers.
Charlie Overman, our County
Farm Agent, gave a most inter
esting talk on his trip to Cali
fornia at the Farm Bureau meet
ing. We, too. joined in the ex
pression of pleasure relative to
the position of Chowan County in
Farm Bureau activities. Right
on top! We might add that the
Farm Bureau and many of the
Home Demons!ration Clubs have
endorsed the resolution for a new
Chowan River bridge.
Talking of tourist homes, good j
food, and a clean place to rest over- !
night! Mv wife and some of her!
people stopped at a private tourist j
home near Salisbury, N. C. The tale
sounds almost like the one we spoke
about recently. It was run by a little
old lady. Her husband passed on and
left her this huge home. She served !
biscuits and delicious food for only;
fit) cents per person for the grown ups !
and 35 cents for my boy. And she'
sat at the table as a gracious host !
urging them to >. at. (You could just ;
help yourself from the serving dishes'
and bowls). Needless to say, the
good word will pass along to many
others. And. of course, the woman
does a good, business. We are happy
that Kdenton tourist home proprie
tors are bending every effort to cater i
to the comfort of.tourists.
We read in the papers recently of a
child whose blood was removed from
her body and new blood injected to
save her life. It seems that the fath
er’s and mother's blood were of two
conflicting types and on three other

occasions their young infants died at j
or about 19 days after birth for no
apparent reason. Medical science was
at a loss to explain. However, re- I
cently, a young practitioner took a 1
specimen of the blood of both parents
and discovered the above mentioned
conflict in blhod types. When this
| last baby was born, the blood was
tested and the situation discovered to
be such that of a blood mixture which i
would result in the death of the new
born infant. They rushed the child
to a hospital and with an infusion of
new blood the baby is apparently
thriving. I was particularly interest
ed in this case, because one of the
babies which died a few years ago
' was to have been first called “Peter
Starkey.” Husband Paul

names were just terrible. In the sil

we all had a good laugh. The child
was finally named Michael Anthony.
He passed on about the nineteenth
day due to the conflict in blood types
of the parents. This writer was in

account of the strange case over the

We rather resented a recent news
paper statement that North Carolina
was not represented in the organiza
tion of National Guard units and
showed lack of interest. Our unit is
waiting on the papers. The officers
have already been named. This outfit
is going to be a humdinger. We feel
sure that there will not'be any trouble
in recruiting personnel. There is a
strong possibility that it will be turn
ed into a tank company.
