WITH THE FARM WOMEN
By MAIDRCD MORRIS
Sw Haute Is Dream Come True
It all started with a dream. A
dream of a larger and more
convenient house for the six
member family of J. M. Wright,
Jr., of the Midway community
In Rockingham County. Just
recently the family moved into
their new house.
Miss Martha Edmondson, as
sistant home economics agent,
reports much planning, decision
making, sacrifice and hard work
was involved in making the
dream „ come true. Os course,
Mrs. Wright likes the kitchen
best because it is conveniently
arranged with plenty of storage
New Roller Chair
Have you ever wished for a
chair or stool that would roll
when you were sitting to iron?
Mrs. J. H. Allen in Durham has
the solution to the problem.
'Mrs. Julia Dobson, home eco
nomics agent, says Mrs. Allen’s
Apier made her a sewing chair
with rollers, so she could roll
back and forth at her machine.
Mrs. Allen says that she en
joys the chair more when iron
ing since she can roll up to the
end of the board when neces
Vitamin "A" Foods
Broccoli plants and asparagus
crowns were ordered for inter
ested Home Demonstration Club
members in Caldwell County.
Miss Ainslee Alexander, home
economics agent, reports that
2,000 broccoli plants and 500 as
paragus crowns were ordered
for the women. She said, “These
foods plus collards and butter
nut squash* are vitamin A foods
which are being stressed in the
county this year.
4-H Experience Pays Off
Gay Myall’s 4-H experience
has really paid off, says her
-bother. Gay, the daughter of
£tr. and Mrs. Cecil McCall of
Yllerbe Route 1, is only eight
years old, but she has been an
active member of the Sandhill
Community 4-H Club since her
parents became 4-H adult lead
ers two years ago.
According to Mrs. Martha B.
Adams, assistant home eco
nomics agent in Richmond Coun
ty, Gay has watched her mother
as she trained other 4-H'ers to
give demonstrations. She and
her brother Tommy recently
took over their mother’s duty
and made a cake to serve at a
meeting at their house when
their mother was away.
Inspired To Sew
Mrs. Evelyn Thompson of Al
ba Club in Washington County,
made use of the information she
got at a clothing training school.
At a recent club meeting she
modeled a mother - daughter
dress-suit outfit she had made.
Bhe emphasized lining the jack
ets and using interfacings. Mrs. i
Thompson designed and made j
each a hat out of scraps of cloth
left from the dress.

Washington A number of
formidable hurdles still stand in !
the way of enactment of legis-j
iation authorizing Federal sub-:
sidies for education.
The House—for the first time!
in history—approved a program!
for Federal subsidies for general I
school construction. Tin* amount
authorized was $1.3 billion,
spread over four years.
This compares with the Sen
ate-approved $l.B billion pro
gram, spread over two years,
for both school construction and
Before any measure becomes
law, agreement must be reach
ed on the two different versions
—and the resulting legislation
must be signed by President
Among the hurdles confront
ing the legislation are these —
any one of which could kill it:
1. President Eisenhower’s veto
power. Administration support
ers had contended all along that
a veto was likely unless the
legislation under consideration
was drastically modified.
During the House debate,
HEW Secretary Flemming ac
tively sought a compromise to
require that Federal funds be
matched each year by the states
on a 50-50 oasis and that the
money be disbursed on the basis
of need and not merely on the
basis of school population irre
spective of need.
The House accepted considera
bly less than one-half of the
compromise. It agreed only in
part to the matching proposal
and rejected the needs test en
The House vote on the meas
ure was 200 to 189—far less than
the two-thirds required to over

signed by the President, further
action would be necessary to
provide funds. The legislation
now under consideration merely
authorizes the spending. Any
funds actually made available
would have to be voted later.
During the House debate, con
vincing arguments were present
ed to show that the need for
school construction was rapidly
being met on tire state and local
levels —and that the Federal gov
ernment would stay out of this
field of activity.
Here is the way Rep. Allen
(R-Ill.) summed up the opposi-,
“I say that I am opposed to
the bill, first, because the Ftjfc
eral government does not pjje
the money and would be obliged
to borrow it for future genera
tions to pay back; second, be
cause all the states are better
olf f.nancially than the Federal
Government; third, because the
education of i.ur children should
be considered a local responsi
bility; fourth, because it is the
beginning of Federal financial
assistance which will ultimately
end in Federal financial assist
ance for teachers’ salaries, school
equipment and textbooks; and
fifth, because above all our
schools should be free of Fed
eral controls and domination.”’
