★Mv God shall supply all your need.—Phil. 4:19.
WHEN FACED by seemingly insurmountable ob

We thank, Thee, O God. that Thou are all-sufficient

Important To Give I*’ood
It will be noticed that the Red Cross bloodmobile is
scheduled to again visit Edenton Wednesday of next
Week. Chowan County’s quota has been reduced from
150 pints to 110 pints, so that there is little reason why
the quota should not be reached.
The importance of donating blood cannot be over-em
phasized, so that it is hard to understand why a county
with something like 12,000 population does not contain
more than 110 people who are willing to make a sacrifice
of only a few minutes so that their blood might help re
lieve suffering and even save a life.
Who knows who in Chowan County will be the next
one to require a blood transfusion and, of course, to have
the necessary blood immediately available is far better
than being necessary to find someone who will donate
blood in the particular case when time is an important
With the quota of blood reduced for Chowan County,
the new quota of 110 pints should be realized.
A Stable Dollar
Sylvia Porter, the syndicated writer on business trends,
recently pointed out that for three years the purchasing
newer of the dollar has changed very little. This, she
said, is “a price phenomenon that has few parallels in
the 20th century.”
Then she gave an excellent bit of implied advice: “We
need not hesitate to buy in anticipation of sharply lower
prices. We need not rush to the stores in fear of soar-1
kg prices.”
In other words, we should buy normally. There’s an I
abundance of every kind of ware. Retail competition as
sures us that we get the best possible return for our
tnoney. Barring a major world conflagration, most econ
omists expect that situation to continue.
Members of the temporary committee of the Edenton
Development Corporation are encouraged over the initial
report of the stock salesmen which shows that about $20,-
000 worth of stock has been sold toward the goal of SIOO,-
000 for .the purpose of helping, if necessary, provide sites
or buildings for new industries in this community.
The surface has just been scratched, so that an op
timistic feeling prevails that the ultimate goal will he
reached and Edenton and Chowan County will he able
to attract new industries which means more payrolls.
One hundred thousand dollars is a lot of money and
while it will require more than one-share purchases to
be realized, it is the hope that many who cannot afford
more, will purchase even one share or as many more as
possible. The more stockholders the corporation has. the
more interest will be reflected in securing new industry
and the more will industries planning to move to new
locations he persuaded that the community would like to,
have them.
Tt is a case of many doing little rather than a few do
ing much on which will decide the success of the corpora
:ion and its, ultimate purpose of securing new, industrial
plants for Edenton and Chowan County.

show me one of the certificates awarded to 19 Chowan ,
County school bus drivers for careful driving during the
1953-54 school term. The certificates were presented by
the N. C. State National Automobile Association, the
South’s largest motor club, and the drivers should be
proud of ’em. Incidentally, Jess is connected with the
motor club and was just about as proud of the certificate
as the drivers who received them.
Then someone connected with the Jaycees made an
error of more than an hour. A sign was placed at the
foot of Broad Street which reads “Annual J. C. Broom

“Shucks,” was the reply, “there’s nothing to that, for
I’ve already worn out three red dresses and I don’t have

Farmers and other landowners in
|North Carolina who would like to put
i idle acres to work next fall may he
i interested in a newly revised
bulletin on Shortleaf Pine,
i Prepared by the Forest Service <JP
the U. S. Department of Agriculture,
the bulletin describes shortleaf pine as
a desirable and profitable crop tree, of
rapid growth, and producing high-qual
ity, soft textured wood. Though it
grows more rapidly on good soil, it
can b established successfully on brok
en, steep, or womout land. It repro
duces itself easily with abundant seed
crops. The trunk is characteristically
straight and clean.
The bulletin makes many suggest
ions about how to plant shortleaf pine,
good management practices, methods
of judging the board feet that can be
cut from logs of various sizes, thinning
of trees, and uses to which logs of
various sizes can be put.
