A LIFT FOR TODAY
+ if I be rifted up from the earth, will draw
all men unto me. —John 12:32.
WITHOUT GOD in our hearts there can be no
outward glow. It is the magnetism of the Cru
cified Christ that lifts us to the heights and
brings to us a spiritual radiance.
May our lives be brought into the sunlight oi
Thy Presence, O God. and thus reflect Thy Love
and Grace to all mankind.
Next week. October 3-8, Chowan County s
Fair will be in progress at the American Le
gion grounds and, according to Robert S.
Marsh, president, this year's fair will be one
of the best ever sponsored by Ed Bond Post
No. 40 of the American Legion.
The fair offers an opportunity for Chowan
County citizens to exhibit samples of their
field crops, vegetables, flowers, garments,
handicraft, livestock and other items, for
which cash prizes are offered for the best
specimens. Then, too, the fair encourages
the efforts of young people to become better
farmers and better citizens, for special de
partments are set up for 4-H. FFA. FHA.
XFA and XHA groups. Prizes are offered,
too, for the best exhibits presented by these
“Chowan County is fortunate in having the
only county fair in the Albemarle.” says Pres
ident Marsh, who hopes many people from
Chowan and surrounding counties will visit
this year's event.
Arrangements have been made for school
children to attend the fair with Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday set aside especially for
the youngsters. Passes to the fair will be
distributed at the various schools.
The George Clyde Smith Shows will occupy
the midway, so that the Legionnaires believe
this year’s fair will lie interesting, educational,
and entertaining for the entire family.
Two Important Events
Two very important events are scheduled
for Edenton and Chowan County, one tonight
t Thursday) and the other Friday, Septem
On Thursday night a polio shot clinic will
be held at the Penelope Barker house from
7 to 9 o’clock. The shots will be administer
ed free to all who are under 18 years of age
and expectant mothers. For others a nomi
nal charge of SI.OO will he made.
Polio is no respector of persons, so that it
should behoove all to take all possible pre
cautions to prevent an attack of this dread
ful disease. Facts show that the shots have
greatly reduced the incidence of polio, so that
seriofts consideration shoidd be given to these
The clinic is sponsored by the Junior Cham
ber of Commerce in cooperation with Edenton
doctors, so that it is hoped many people will
take these shots tonight.
On Friday the Red Cross bloodmobile will
again visit Edenton and this. too. should
claim the attention of more people in the
county. Chowan County’s quota is 105 pints
of blood. Previously the county has fallen
short of its quota when there is no reason
why Chowan County cannot muster up enough
people to meet the quota.
Blood is very necessary at the hospital and
when it is needed there usually is little preci
ous time on hand to find a volunteer whose
blood will match.
The regrettable thing about so few being
willing to donate a pint of blood is that no
body knows if he or she will be the next one
who needs a blood transfusion to prevent suf
fering or even death.
It is pointed out that comparatively few
people in the rural section of the county and
Negroes participate in the blood program and
that about 90 per cent of the blood donations
come from people living in Edenton. This is
not as it should be for the entire county, both
white and colored citizens, should be willing
to donate a pint of blood in the interest of
There is no pain connected with giving a
pint of blood and very little of one’s time
is consumed, so that Chowan County people
are especially urged to go to the Edenton
armory Friday between the hours of 11 A.
M.. and 5 P. M.. and help to put Chowan
County over the top.
Why is it some people think they must say
something when they have nothing to sav?
Politeness is a virtue that seems to be on
the wane these days.
JJeanf & Jy*>en I
Mrs. Carrie Earnhardt gave me an exami
nation Thursday afternoon when she came in
for a newspaper I was supposed to save for
her. She looked at my desk and said, “Lord,
have mercy, you’ll never find that paper on
that desk. I’ll bet you don’t know what half
of the stuff on .your desk is.” But I told
her I know pretty well what is there and
where it is, so she proceeded with her exami
nation. She picked'up five or six items, some
buried rather deep down on the desk and ask
ed me what each one was. I immediately
identified each item she picked up, so she
left, giving me a mark of 100 on the exam,
with the further comment, “I don’t see how
you do it.” Anyway, I fount} the paper I
saved for her. ‘

The new pipe organ at the Methodist
Church was played for the first worship ser
vice Sunday morning. The congregation was
much larger than usual and with the splen
did tone of the organ I had to look around
to see if I was in the right church. Any
way. the Methodists are very proud of the
new organ. • not the least of whom is Mrs.
John Ross; who has messed with the old worn

It wasn’t very cool at the football game
Friday night, but Xick George was asking
about coffee being served. Looks like iW
“it” to get coffee at the press box for the!
next game when the weather is a little more
zippy. Last Friday night Bill Cozart shelled
out cool drinks, which were not bad at all.l
Incidentally, the boys in the press box wish
spectators would refrain from blocking the
view of the yard markers on the football field, j
It’s not so difficult to tell where the ball is:
if these markers can be seen from the press'
box. but right much guessing must be done
when they can’t be seen. I reckon this sug
gestion will remedy the situation. Oh, yeah!
A few Edenton people attended the 100th
anniversary and homecoming at Great Hope
Baptist Church near Center Hill Sunday J
Among the group was Leroy Haskett, who|
says he really enjoyed the occasion, for he
met some friends he hadn’t seen for 40 years.
In fact some of ’em he couldn’t even recog
nize. But beside that he said the dinner sort
of reminded him of the Biblical story about
the three loaves and seven fishes. All kinds
of delicious food ( including the very best

owed you a bill for a long time and because
you are a gentleman. I'm going to pay you.”
Gosh all hemlock, is Branning going to run

Against Loss Os Hogs
From Corn Poisoning
“Because much of the corn in
Eastern North Carolina was
blown down by the recent hurri
cane, Eastern North Carolina
| swine growers are in danger of
losing hogs from moldy corn
| poisoning,” says Dr. W. M. Bpsey
of the Veterinary Diagnostic-
Laboratory at Edenton. “When
corn or other cereal grains be
come wet.” he says, “the proper
environment exists for t.he de
velopment of various molds and
fungi. Some of these have the

II ability to produce a dangerous
poison or toxin. When swine
consume this moldy grain there
is a good chance, that they will
' become sick and (lie.
There are two forms of moldy
corn poisoning, acute and chron
!ic. *ln herds where t.he acute
disease appears, the animals are
found dead or are sick for only
a day or two before they die.
The sick ones are depressed, off
feed and show signs of weakness
by staggering in the hindquar
ters. Their temperature is nor
mal and they may pass some
blood in their stool. Chronically
affected hogs are depressed,
: have poor appetites and often
walk with a gait. The ani-
I mals seem to be losing weight
I even though there is ample
> grain present. There is no
i known treatment for this dis-!
“In order to prevent this con
dition, farmers are advised to
gather their corn and dry it as
soon as possible. By doing this,
they will prevent the growth of
molds thus preventing the pro
duction of dangerous poisons. If
J corn is suspected of being
moldy, an animal of low value
should be fed the grain for 10
• days to two weeks and observed
for toxic signs.
