Congratulate all of the partici
pating people in Chowan County
(or .a fine job done.
As of Wednesday, May 3, we
were facing a serious situation.
The county quota was set at
(1965. The Red Cross officials
Informed the Chowan County
’committee that unless, they rais
, fd SI7OO by May 15 the county
\Vould lose the Blood Bank. At
Tthat time, approximately SI3OO
• pad been collected, of which be-
Jtween $l5O and S2OO had come in'
Ifrom the rural part of the coitn
[ty. This indicated that the
flywn of Edenton was carrying
ithe bulk of the load,
j At a meeting of the Agricul
tural Workers’ Council on Wed-j
j pesday afternoon, May 3, it was j
decided to appeal to the rural
communities for immediate ac
tion. Indications were that many|
of the communities had not been
worked. The Agricultural Work-:
er teams went to their respec-'
.tlve communities explaining the
situation and informing the peo
ple of the necessary action if
they desired to keep the Blood
Bank in the county and the peo- j
pie went into action.
As of this writing, I have not |
been able to get definite figures
and the amounts stated should
be close estimates. Negro com
munities raised about $l5O or
more. The total amount raised
by white communities wias some
over $540. This puts the Red
i Cross Finance Drive well over
' the top on its goal. We con
gratulate you people of the
communities on rallying to ac
tion and doing a fine job in a
■ few days.
Spoiled Moat Survey Meeting:
Many families in Chowan Coun
ty have encountered difficulty
. this. year with their home pork
supply spoiling, particularly the
hams and shoulders. I have
several farms in an es- j
fort to determine te cause of the
■trouble but in most instances it
Is beyond me.
I* On Thursday night of next
>preek at the Advance Communi
?ty Building at 8 o’clock, I am
v calling a meeting of all people
?Who had difficulty with spoiled
- meat and any others who are in
terested. Dr. John A. Christian,
: our Extension Moat Specialist
’ from State College, will be pres
. ent to ask you questions, an
swer questions and try to de
. termine the cause of this severe
.'pleat spoilage and also inform
. us how it might be avoided in
the future. When the family
■ meat supply spoils it is a seri

*bur meat so that we can expect
it to cure and keep properly.

A tobacco grower who thinks
he needs additional fertilizer to

dress with 150 to 200 pounds of
8-0-24 tobacco sidedresses. This
material should be applied on

four to six inches from the
plants. There is no need to ap

Chowan County is fortunate in
that we have been working with
several community 4-H Clubs
for many years and the idea is
not new to us.
The plan of action was well
prepared and well-presented. I
don’t know of a single question
from any of the agents failing
to get answered. We should
now have ample information and
be in a position to proceed with
organizing and conducting 4-H
Club work on a community
basis in our counties in the East
ern District. Chowan County
workers are in the act of di
gesting the information received
and formulating recommenda
tions to the people in the county.
As fast as time permits we will
contact prospective leaders and
proceed with community organi
zations in communities which do
not presently have 4-H Clubs
organized in them.
In communities which already
have 4-H Clubs we believe that
the leaders will appreciate and
be receptive to recommended
progrssive changes. These chang
es will be submitted as recom
mendations only for the com
munities to accept as they see
fit. All Extension workers will
