-are looking forward with much!
anticipation to the opening of
lichool. You're suddenly going
-_to find yourself very busy. You
can bring your record books up
to date —some may even be
completed —now. This will keep
you from being rushed later on
and you will be able to turn in
a record book that speaks well
of your efforts. Remember, a
project record book is nothing
more than a record of your ac
The Edenton Lions Club and
Rotary Club are again sponsor
ing the Corn and Peanut pro
jects. As in the past, all 4-H’ers
einrolled in these projects and
fathers will be honored aC
a special meeting. Os course,
each boy must satisfactorily
complete his project, and this
means a record book must be
turned in. The members of
these two civic clubs are in
terested in you and in your pro
gress. Otherwise, they would
HQt be honoring you in this
manner. They are not able to
go out and see each boy and
observe his project, but a good
record book will tell them the
story of your project. Won't
you do your best to make this
record as complete and accur
ate as possible?
It seems that Chowan County
4*H ’ers have been going every
where this summer. First, we
had 24 attend 4-H Camp at
jifanteo in June. Later in the
inonth over 20 attended the Dis
trict Demonstration contest in
Chocowinity. when Chowan
came home with two district
demonstration winners. In July,
five 4-H’ers attended, and from
what I’ve heard had a wonder

the Center Hill Junior and Sen

most enjoyable day at Lake
Ahoy, near Suffolk, Va. The

planning a trip to Ocean View,
on Friday, August 19. On Mon
day, Roy Nixon left for a week
at Camp Millstone. He will be
attending State 4-H Forestry
Camp, an all expense paid trip
i won through his 4-H Forestry
So, you see, 4-H’ers really
have some wonderful opportuni
ties to learn and have fun as
well. If you were not in on
any of these activities, then
make a resolution now to be
! come a more active 4-H’er. I
know you will get a lot more
out of 4-H if you will put just
a little more work into it. And
I know your efforts will pay
vou big dividends in personal
growth and development, such
as it has so many others.

To Cain’s classic question, “Am j
I my brother’s keeper?” Chris

ing “Yes”. Not only does self-|

others to drink; it also supports!
a gigantic industry that seeks
to make social drinking a glam
orous way of life to youth and
young adults. In the early
church some Christians were
troubled in conscience because
they had eaten meat offered
first to idols. This did not
trouble Paul, who could eat the 1
food with a clear conscience;
but because he was eager to
make life less difficult for his
comrades, he was willing to
stop eating meat. Should not

There are many reasons why
Christians should forsake self
indulgence. Love for others cer

Few trucks are subjected to the

Chevrolet Series 60 pulpwood
hauler. It’s owned by J. E. Fox,

the business says, “Loaded with
pulpwood, we drive over stumps
and potholes you’d think would
tear the truck to pieces. These

load a day .. . make $ 45 to 950
a day more with this Chevy than

In every weight class these Chevies
are doing more work at less ex

could pay you big dividends.
