National Home Demonstration
Week Observed April 30-May 6
National Home Demonstration
Week will be observed April 30
to May 6.
The setting aside of a week
each year to honor home demon
stration work provides an op
portunity to tell the people of
the United States and to a great
degree the people of the world
of the contributions made by
home demonstration work in the
progress of our nation.
All groups interested in the
development and improvement of
the farm, home, family and com
munity should take advantage of
the opportunity offered by Na
tional Home Demonstration Week
to acquaint the general public,
especially the younger farm fam
ilies, of the educational programs
available through the Home Eco
nomics Agents and through the
Home Demonstration Club work.
v The observance of this week
should emphasize the importance
of wise management decisions in
home and family living, and in
crease the awaireness of the in
" fluence of the home on the char
acter and the personality of 'our
youth. While the development
of hew skills and changed atti
tudes in the many phases of
koraemaking are important, the
broader aspects of the problems
of Agriculture and their relation
to local, national and world eco
nomy must not be overlooked.

ment offers an opportunity for
further release from drudgery to
enable housewives to become
even more intelligent homemak
ers and mothers, thus truly
“building tomorrow’s world.”
The many years during which
this week has been observed has
seen significant changes in rural
living. County, state and fed
eral extension services have
joined forces to call attention to
these changes which influence
the home, the community, the
state and the nation. It speci
fically points out the contribu
tions that home demonstration
work makes to homemakers- in
interpreting the results of re
search and experience -in the
field of homemaking. The con
tributions which volunteer local
leaders have made to the pro
gram should never be overlook
ed, as these leaders furnish the
real channel tor getting the prac
tices put into operation.
One of the fine programs be
ing emphasized at this time is
the development of communities.
Problems in connection with
such projects emphasize the ne
cessity of peopie learning to work
together to accomplish goals that
they cannot achieve as separate
individuals or as separate fam
ilies. The community is the log
ical place to demonstrate the
democratic principles which have
sustained this nation through its
many trials and tribulations.

all communities served by U. S.
17 have had a hand in preparing.
The association has sa its ma
jor goal a speed up of scheduled
improvements to U. S. 17 to co
incide with the opening of the
Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel
According to Wilbur Smith and
Associates, New Haven, Conn.,
traffic engineers for the Chesa
peake Bay Bridge and Tunnel
District, Jones said, the day the
bridge is completed the imme
diate impact on highways at the
Virginia-Carolina line would be
approximately 1.600 vehicles per
day over the present count. An
nual increases in use of the fixed
crossing of the bay are expected
to bring the daily traffic load to
approximately 10,000 vehicles a
day within 10 years. U. S. High
way 17 is the economic lifeline
in this area, Jones pointed out.
“I feel sure that every citizen in
our community is interested in
seeing that scheduled improve
ments for U. S.. Highway 17. are.
completed in time to prevent
bottlenecks in this major north
south artery, and will do all pos
sible to support the program.”

j Stage Now Set For

he has offered himself as a can
didate for Mayor. Before his
appointment as Mayor he serv
ed as Third Ward Councilman.
Mr. Haskett has served as
Mayor for 12 years. He was first
elected without opposition in
1943 when J. H. McMullan de
clined to seek re-election. Pre
viously he served as Third Ward
Councilman. He served as May
or for 12 consecutive years,
from 1943 until 1955, after which
he was twice successively defeat
ed by Ernest Kehayes. In the
1959 election he was again a
candidate which included David
Holton and Kehayes. The vote
in this election was 400 for Hol
ton, 330 for Kehayes and 293
Quite a few new voters have
been placed on the town’s regi
stration books and as election
day draws near interest is
mounting in the Mayor’s race,
so that with favorable weather
a record vote is anticipated.
For the two Councilmen-at
large seats there are four candi
dates. Two of these are incum
bents, J. Edwin Bufflap and
George A. Byrum. The other
two are Frank Holmes and
George Tillett, Negro attorney.
Quite a bit of interest prevails
in this race with alt four can
didates appealing to the voters
j for their support.
I A keen contest is scheduled
for Councilman from the First
Ward, where there are three
candidates seeking to fill the va
cancy caused by the resignation
of William C. Bunch, Jr., who
moved to Norfolk. The first to
file for this office was Richard
D. Dixon, Jr., after which J. D.
Elliott, offered himself as a can
didate. The latest to file in the
race was Wilmer E. Malone. All
three candidates are working
hard to win votes, so that more
than usual interest prevails for
a Councilman’s seat.
In the Third Ward, -R. Elton
Forehand, incumbent, is opposed
by a Negro, the Rev. F, H. La-
Garde, pastor of Providence
Baptist Church. Forehand was
appointed Third Ward Council
man by Town Council following
the death of David Holton and
the appointment of John Mitch
ener as Mayor. It is the first
time he has asked the voters to
elect him to office.
It is also the first time La-
Garde has sought public office,
and both candidates are busying
themselves to line up votes.
What appears to be another
interesting contest is to elect
five members on the Board of
Public Works. There are seven
candidates for these seats, five
of whom are incumbents and
include Thomas Byrum, chair
man, Ralph E. Parrish, Jesse
Harrell, Joe Conger, Jr., and
James P. Ricks, Jr. The two
other candidates are Dr. A. F.
Downum and George S. Twid

of three candidates for Council
