Someone wanted to know why •
I didn’t buy an automobile, since
I live quite a distance from my
work. There are several reasons
why I don’t—The cost, not the
least of these reasons. But the
main reason is, there are too -
many danged automobiles in op
eration now, and why should I ,
add to the confusion .that now •
exists on our highways and
streets. But more to the point,
by not buying a car, the life I i
save could be my own—consid
ering the sacrifices that are made
in loss of life and injuries to .
the Great God Automobile.
It could be that Castro -has 1

BETTER. LIVING |
Probably no single improved farming practice has
increased the income and living standards of North
Carolina farmers more than the comparatively recent
use of hybrid com. Less than twenty years ago, only
about 1% of our com acreage was planted with hybrid
seed com; this year, about 90%. Higher yields, better
quality and the dependable production under adverse
conditions that hybrids offer add up to more profit per
acre-and account for their rapid acceptance by our
Similarly, recent years have seen greatly increased
acceptance of the “legal control” system governing ,
the sale of beer and ate in North Carolina, in the
interest of temperance and moderation.

| THE WEST—Virginia City, Ne
vada, was once the richest city
in the world. The discovery of
the Comstock Lode, “The Big
Bonanza,” in the ’oo’s and ’7o’s,
brought out a fantastic treasure
of millions of dollars worth of
gold and silver bullion. Vir
ginia City burgeoned and almost
overnight became one of the
wealthiest and gaudiest cities in
the West. Garish and flashy
mansions, restaurants, theatres,
business emporiums and bar
rooms sprang up. And to house
all this wealth strong, impreg
nable banks came into being; to
augment and oversee Virginia
City’s new and strange 'Midas
economy. But in the Nineties
the gold and silver markets col
lapsed, and Virginia City hit the
downward skids to oblivion. To
day it is a memory, a lonely,
delapidatcd ghost town—but such
is life: Dust thou art, to dust
returnest, man or city.
No compromise with communism!
