A LIFT FOR TODAY
Thou wilt light my candle. —Psalms 19:28.
A life radiant with Loveland like a lighted
candle and with the Spirit of God spreads com
fort and guidance far and wide. Christ said,
/‘Ye are the light of the world.”
* May America today rededicate herself to God
and sand out the radiance and warmth of the
Gospel to all the lends now struggling for the
jruvxAAhAAriAfuvvvvv l v
Many years ago, most Americans lived on
farms. They raised their own food—from beef
•to beans—and enough extra to feed one or two
people who didn’t live on the farm.
• Today, less than nine per cent of the American
people live on the farm, but now each farmer
feeds himself and 22 others.
i With this non-farm “family” increasing and
the co6t of his production necessities rising at a
fate unparalleled in industry, the farmer will have
to operate more efficiently or get out.
Farmers have met this ultimatum better than
£ny other segment of our economy, yet they are
the targets of hordes of critics who don’t appre
ciate their contributions nr understand their
problems. - ’
Should farmers falter and surpluses dwindle
into shortages, the situation would become grim.
Consumers, who up to now have “never had it
sp good,” would be singing-a “worried song.”
The percentage of farmers in our population
"is small, but the percentage of Americans who
, depend on them is large—an even 100 per cent.
Dangerous Days For Kiddies
From now until September when schools re
open parents will have added responsibilities for
the safety of their children. Now that they are
out of doors much of the time, without protec
tion of watchful teachers and school boy pa
trols, children should be taught to play safe.
It's largely up to parents to see that when their
their child sheds his school clothes and puts on
summer play clothes, he doesn’t shed his school
year safety habits at the same. tune.
Do'all parents realize that danger lurks on the
quiet residential street as much as on the busy
thoroughfare? Streets which carry less traffic
may seem safer, but the fact remains that most
child accidents occur in or near the very block
where the child lives. He is completely familiar
with the streets and alleys close to his house, and
so feels secure from danger. But for that very
reeason he is likely to take chances—chances
that sooner or later can end in a tragedy.
t Parents, too, are prone to lull themselves into
false sense of security. For example, some
rents are “sure” that their children are safe
because they don’t play in the streets. Yet these
same parents will watch unconcerned as one of
their youngsters darts back and forth across the
Playing in the street is certainly hazardous, and
of course should be forbidden, but at least a
driver can see child>:n far enough ahead to slow
down and drive with extra care. Accident rec
ords show that, as a rule, the child who is killed
or injured by a car is the child who' runs out
suddenly into the street from a place where the
driver can’t see him—generally from behind, be
tween or in front of parked cars.
Parents who want their children to have a safe
and happy summer won’t take it for granted that
the youngsters know that evpn their own neigh
borhood can be deadly dangerous. And they
won’t wait for the terrifying squeal of brakes
in front of their house to shock them into mak
ing sure that their children always follow these
safety rules: Cross only at the corner, stop at
the curb, look both wavs, wait until it’s safe,
then walk across the street.

Now I know what a crow gun sounds like.
While devoting all of Sunday afternoon driving
around the county from Ryland to the Yeopim
section and even over in Bertie County, one of
the contraptions went off while I was driving
along a country road. Some people say the guns
keep ’em awake, but I got a good scare for at
the time I figured sure as the dickens that one
of my tires blew out Os course, I stopped and
looked, but none of the tires were flat, and then
1 noticed a field of cantaloupes and figured the
shot came from one of the guns. At any rate, in
the territory that I covered all crops looked ex
ceptionally good, crow guns or not
The Rev. Thurman Allred, pastor of the Rocky
Hock Church, must have a good television set.
On Saturday he called and asked me to turn to
Channel 2, on which he was tuned and was re
ceiving a program from Havana, Cuba. The pic
ture was very clear at times tout, of course, he
didn’t know what they were saying for they
spoke in Spanish. Well, maybe it’s just as well
that- he couldn’t understand them for it’s not
likely they said anything good especially if they
were talking about the United States.. At any
rate,.’the program wouldn’t show up on my tele
vision set, so I doubt if I missed much, except
getting a station from such a great distance.
Castro is taking over American business con
cerns and just about anything he wants, so he
can keep his consam television programs so far
as I am concerned. Mr. Allred also saw a pro
gram coming from San Juan, Puerto Rico, which
was also in'Spanish.

Publishing a weekly paper like The Chowan
Herald is no picnic, and here’s why:
If we print jokes, people say we’re silly: if we
don’t, they say we are too serious.
If we stick to the office all day, we ought to be
out hunting things to write about; if we go out
and try to hustle some news, we ought to be on
the job in the office.
If we don’t accept contributions, we don’t appre
ciate genius; if we print them, the paper is full
If we edit the other fellow’s story, we are too
critical; if we don’t, we’re asleep.
If we slip things from other papers, we’re too
lazy to write them; if we don’t we’re stuck with
our own stuff.
Now,- like as not, some guy will say we swiped
this from some other paper. Well, we did, and
Eph Boyce recently returned from a northern
motor trip taking him to the mountains of upper
Pennsylvania, and comgs back with what is poor
advertising for North Carolina. He took along
with him padded matches advertising his grocery
store, leaving some at places he stopped. How
ever, Eph was told -by same’TjFtTie northerners
on more than one occasion that they do not in
tend to travel in North Carolina for fear of being
arrested for some sort of traffic violation. One
of ’em even said that if he ever has to pass
through North Carolina, it will toe by plane. Eph
said that in all of his travels he didn’t see a
single highway patrolman until he reached North
Carolina, and he slowed down then in order not
to see any more of the patrolman.
’ The ski show next Sunday afternoon at the
old fish hatchery should be a delightful affair
from two standpoints. First, the Outer Banks
Ski Chib. plans to put on another spectacular
show with the added assurance that the kite ski
act will go off as it should. Then after the show
Outer Banks skiiers will give skiing lessons to,
Mayor John Mitchener, Tom Byrum, Mrs. J. D.
Elliott, Miss Catherine Aman, Spec Jones, McKay
Washington, James Griffin, James Perry, Al Phil
lips, Robert Powell, John Bass, Bill Harris and
Elton Forehand. Scott Harrell says all have
consented to definitely take the lesson except El
ton Forehand, new president of the Rotary Club.
But Dick Atkinson, vice president, says it’s up to
Elton to carry on the “traditions” of Rotary and
he just must get out there and try. Anyway, it’ll
be worth seeing some of ’em messing around on
skis, and that there ought to be plenty of spills,
unless my idea of learning to ski is all wet.
Maybe somebody in this neck of the woods is
missing out on an opportunity to make some
money. Last week two Portsmouth boys caught
between 400 and 300 pounds of turtles in one

I’m informed the things sell for
eight cents per pound alive.
That’s a lot better than the com
mercial fishermen get for some
of the fish they catch even with
all the money they have tied up
in equipment. The only equip
ment the boys had was a skiff
and oodles of poles to place
along 'the creek. Os course, with
so many turtles they had to
have boxes to put ’em in. The
boys however, didn’t stay in
business very long for they fail
ed to get a fishing license and
Game Warden Bob Evans called
a halt. And while turtles are
apparently plentiful, local fisher
men are reporting big catches of
white perch and even croakers
out in the sound.
