17,000 Rural Families Will
Have Brighter Xmas This Year
WASHINGTON, D. C.
Christmas will be somewhat
brighter this year for nearly
17,000 low-income rural families
as a result of war on poverty
loans they have received since
last January through the Far
mers Home Administration of
the U.S. Department of Agri
culture.
Altogether, 16,639 war on
poverty or economic oppor
tunity loans totaling $28,305,-
137 were made through No
vember 30 to hard pressed
white and colored rural fami
lies and individuals. In addi
tion 247 loans amounting to
$3,277,242 went to rural coop
eratives.
More than 10,000 of the loans
to families and individuals
were made to farmers to help
them purchase equipment and
supplies to increase their farm
ing efficiency, The remainder
o fthese loans—about 6,000 —
went to farm and non-farm ru
ral residents to help them
establish small nonfarm enter
prises.
Among such enterprises have
been tractor and auto repair
shops, custom hauling, timber
cutting and hauling, home sew
ing, cleaning and pressing busi
nesses, coin-operated laundries,
radio and television repair
shops, barber shops, and ce
ramics shops.
For those in ceramics, this
is a busy season as they rush
out Christmas orders. Among
these artisans is James Cos
ten ,a day laborer who lives in
Belle Haven, Va., across the
bay from Norfolk. In the eve
nings and during his spare
time he molds and paints dolls
and other figures and novel
ties for sale to gift shops along
east coast highways. Orders
jiome from as far as New
York City.
Costen got started last spring
after receiving an- economic
opportunity loan to add a small
ceramics workshop to his home
With help from his wife and
daughter, who enjoy assisting
him, he is already turning out
enough figurines and novelties
to earn them about SIOO a
month plus a lot of satisfac
tion, say Farmers Home offi
cials.

have received loans to improve
their operatons have used the

Health Hints
Sneezing
A-A-A-A-CHOO! Pardon!! If
you get an impulse to sneeze,
obey it. Sneezing is nature's way
of evacuating foreign matter from
your breathing passages. Choking
off a sneeze greatly increases pres
sure in the air passages. If too
much air is forced into the sinuses,
it can do real damage. So protect
others from your sneeze with a
handkerchief ... but NEVER
try to suppress it.
ColJs
The common cold is back again!
Its calling card is a scratchy sensa
tion in the nose and throat, follow
ed by dull aches . . . muscular
pains . . . runny nose , . . and
sometimes elevated temperature.
To fight the cold to a standstill,
take a hot bath and drink plenty
of liquids. Above all, GO TO
BED . . . rest is vital to help
your body fight a cold. Simple
-medication may help keep you
comfortable while you are re
covering.
Tranquilizers
Don't sabotage your health by
experimenting with tranquilizers
that weren't prescribed for you.
Tranquilizers may help to relieve
symptoms of some nervous or
emotional disorder . . . but they
don't cure them. You can suffer
harmful side effects or mask a
grave miuci lying JJIUIMCM by us
ing another person's medication.
REMEMBER: the tranquilizer
meant for someone else's problem
may give you a greater one.

the drops of blood on Christ's
brow.
The legend has it in Brit
tany that when Christ was
bearing His cross, a small bird
attempted to relieve His suf
fering by plucking thorns from
His brow. The bird's breast be
came stained with blood and
was known ever after as Robin
Redbreast.
To this day in England and
Germany, it is considered un
lucky to step on a holly berry,
a favorite food of the robin
in recognition of the bird's
charitable act.
Many superstitioins existed
about bringing in the holly be
fore Christmas. In Wales, if it
was brought in before Christ
mas Eve, it was sure to cause
family quarrels throughout the
year. The type of holly brought
into the household determined

the year. If the holly was
smooth, the wife was in com
mand; if prickly, the husband
governed.
Infusions, decoctions and
fomentations of holly were
used for a wide assortment of
human disorders. In England,
a tea of holly bark was a cure
for a cough. In France, a de
coction of leaves and bark was
considered equal to quinine in
the treatment of intermittent
fever. A tea of holly leaves
was believed to be cure of
Qicasles by North American
Indians.
A beverage of the berries
pacified the squaws of Chero
kees and curbed their urge for
wandering. The juice of leaves
was recommended as a cure for
jaundice and was also good
for a pain in the side.
