have such a wide variety of

The label will tell whether the
sheet is made up of 100% cot
ton, nylon acetate, nylon cotton,
or other blends. It will tell
hew closely woven the threads
are. The label will tell if the
sheet will shrink, how to care
for it, and it will give the manu
facturer’s name. The label will
al?o tell the size of the sheet
for single or double beds. A

I am very proud to have been

jto attend the 19th annual Con-I
jservation Conference. This con
i ference was designed to teach
i nnd prepare me to teach others
the “why” of conservation. As a

In studying about soil conserv
ation I learned many methods tn
help improve farming. Some of
them were: (1) Contour plowing,
(2) strip plowing. (3) terrace
plowing, (4) grass water ways,
(5) a good rotation system, <6)
tiling and (7) open ditches. All
ot these methods help improve
farming if used properly. In
studying about the forest I have
learned many methods to help
improve it. Some of them are:
(1) selective cutting, (2) re-set
wiWi pine seeding and (3) help
prevent forest fires. As for farm
operation, the farmers in Cho-!
wan County are doing a com-’
paratively good job. Many
far-mere have developed an ap- 1
predation for seeking new in- j
formation. Yet, there are too j
many who will not attend meet-I

General Farm Bid
To Minor Depe
Price Support Level
Average $233.69 as
Compared With Last
Year’s Price $213.93
Considerable publicity has
been released recently on farm
legislation. The bffect of the
(general farm bill on peanut leg
islation is relatively minor.
However, it did authorize the
use of Marketing Orders and
Agreements for peanuts where,
heretofore, this was not avail
able. The effect of this . addi
tion is that this approach may
be used jointly with the current
type peanut program if the pro
ducers in a producing area vote
to use it. This authority has
been .available for the tobacco
program for a number of years
I but has not been used by the
tobacco people. It will be most
beneficial if needed and, if not
needed, the present type pro
gram can continue.
In connection with prices, the
price support level as announced
by the Secretary of Agriculture
in March has been retained and
this will mean that an average
ton of Virginia type peanuts will
be supported at $233.61), as com
pared with $213.93 last year. In
addition to this, there will be
no deduction for storage and
handling costs, which amounted
to $9.00 per ton last year;
therefore, Virginia type peanuts
will be supported at approxi
mately $29.00 per ton more than
in 1960. The price differential
between Virginia’s and Runners
of $25.85 a ton has not been
changed. This means on a far
mer stock basis the Runner
type peanut will be supported
in the marketplace at $25.85 less
than the Virginia type peanut.
Considerable effort was made by
the Virginia - Carolina peanut
producer representatives and
shellers to have this spread re
duced in order that Virginia
type peanuts would not have a
price disadvantage as compared
to Runners. It is only natural
to assume that quality minors
being the same Iniyers will buy i
the peanuts which they can buy j
for less money.
In connection with the market
ing of peanuts, growers will see
additional grading equipment at
the buying points this year, this
being in the form of the pre
sizer and the sheller. The use
of this equipment has been or
dered by the Grading Service
and will be used at all buying
points. The use of this equip
ment should expedite the hand
ling of peanut grading and
should give a more accurate
grade on each sample of pea
nuts. Every effort should be
made from here out by the grow
er to see that he delivers the
best possible quality of pea-

Significance for today of the

Sariptural readings in the Les-’

Matthew (9): “And Jesus’ went
about all the cities and villages,
teaching, in their synagogues,
and preaching the .gosoel of the
kingdom, and healing every sick
ness and every disease among
