Some of the most important
news concerning the religious
life of this community comes
from the Eden t o n Baptist
Church, where, through the
faithful efforts of Warren Twid
dy, a unique Sunday School
Class has been set up for any
one from 18 to about 35 years
of age. This is always a ne
glected group, as churches, and
rightfully so, concentrate on
teaching the young and giving
solace to our older citizens.
However, the most important
function of any good church is
to bring people closer to God,
and those who are graduated
from high school or those young
married couples who sorely need
divine guidance can now work
with the church in this unique
class. They meet every Sunday
morning at 9:45 with several
prime objectives, including aid
ing the sick, local missionary
work, church fellowship. Os I
course, the most important func
tion is teaching its members
Biblical history and keeping peo
ple close to God. Now this class

50—the age requirement in the
prior law.
Those who have already made
application to have their social
security records frozen because
of their disability do not need
to take any action now. The
I Social Security Administration,
has their records on file and
| will write to them telling them
what they should do. However,
those disabled people who have
not had a previous contact with
a social security office to dis
cuss disability protection should
get in touch with our office
right away because benefits can
not be paid until an application
for them is made,

worked long enough under so

law, he and eligible members of

after Sunday different members
will preach, others will lead the
singing, lead in the prayers, read
that day’s passage from the Bi

and age, especially, we need
God, and living according to His
teachings is the only way in the
world we can bring up our chil
dren decently and wisely. If
you’d like any further informa
tion concerning this ambitious
and interesting venture, by all
means contact Warren Twiddy,
or myself. By the way, there
were nine members present dur
ing the first class. 22 on the
second Sunday. Slowly, but
surely it’s hoped that more and
more people between 18 and 35 j
take advantage of this wonder-1

Farmers, Co-ops Set New Mark
In Loans From Credit System
Farmers and their cooperatives
made record use of their Farm
Credit System loan facilities
during the fiscal year ended
June 30.
According to R. B. Tootell,’
Governor, Farm Credit Admini
stration, the independent agen
cy which supervises the credit
system nationally, farmers and
their purchasing and marketing
cooperatives nearly $4
billion during the year, while
their loans outstanding reached
a new high of $4.8 billion.
Tootell attributed much of the
continued rise in use of credit
by farmers to their efforts to
improve efficiency through sub
stituting capital for labor.
I Much of the increased use of
I credit, it was pointed out, was
j accounted for through the 494
I production credit associations
where farmers last year borrow
ed $2.6 billion—an increase of 5.8
per cent—to pay operating- ex
j penses and to make purchases of
equipment, machinery and other
| captain items.
| The 13 banks for cooperatives
make facility, working capital
and commodity loans. Over 2,-
000 farmers’ purchasing, market
ing and business service coopera
tives borrowed $672 million from
the 13 banks for cooperatives
during the year—a 5.6 per cent
increase in amount over a year
ago.
Although the total of farmers’
new long-term mortgage loans
from the Federal land banks
amounted to 10 per cent less

beth City; a one day circus was
in Hertford and the carnival this
week in Edenton; again, congrat
ulations to Bill Billings and the
Edenton Aces. /
Closing thought: The preach
ing that comes from the soul,
most works on the souL
than during the previous year,
Tootell said, the amount of
loans farmers had outstanding
hit a new peak of $2.5 billion
at the year’s end.
Loanable funds for the sys
tem are obtained through the
sale of bonds and debentures to
the public. Sales of such se
curities during the year totaled
$3.8 billion. These securities are
not guaranteed by the Govern
ment in any way.
Combined net worth of the
banks and associations of the
system increased by SSB million
during the year to over $1.2 bil
lion, Tootell reported.
It is by presence of mind in
untried emergencies that the
native metal of a man is tested.
