Raleigh, Mar. 21. ? If the money
?which North Carolina Is sending to
other States each year for food and
feed product were kept at ho&e, the
accumulation would equal the' Talue
of all"the farm land and^farm build
ings in the state la less than tea years.
Thin irtrlUnif itntnment nppnnrn fn n
leaflet embracing an analysis andsttin^
mary of the agricultural situation In
North Carolina, together with the sug
gested remedies being- advocated In
the "Ulve-at-Home" movement. The
leaflet was prepared by John Paul Lu
cas, executive secretary of the Central
Campaign Committee and is being sent
broadcast over the state to "members
of the county campaign, committees,
focal school teachers, school commit
teemen, bankers And olhergr ; ?
"We send to other states each year
lor food and feed products, most of
? which wb could easily raise ourselves,
a sum very considerably in excess of
the value of our entire cottoncrop; In
excess of the total value of our to
bacco crops ; a sum almost twice as
great as the value of our combined
crops of hay, peanuts, sweet potatoes,
wheat, o?ts, *y?> soybeans, cow peas,
and sorghum." * ,
The two outstanding purposes of the
"Llve-nt'Htrme" campaign are declar
?d as follows :
(1) To induce every farm family Jn
North Carolina to raise at home those
food and feed products which arte nec
essary for the proper maintenance of
the family and of the livestock on tho
2() To promote the health, the phy
sical efficiency the general welfare and
happiness of the people of North Car
olina through a balanced and more
ed d,let, which can be ae^red only
li :V.<> necessary food stugs are produc
er home and are constantly a vall
in .u -icr to accomplish these pur
poses, the statement says, it is neces
sary t hjit every farm family in North
Carolina, white and colored, shall: .
(1) Have an all-the-year garden.
(2). Keep one or more cowb'.
' (3) Keep an anfple flock of chickens.
(4) Raise its own hog meat.

calls for notlv.ng more in the way of
energy, outlay, or intelligence than
can be supplied by 99 per cent of the
farmers in North Carolina. This pro
-gram has been followed and is being
followed by tens of thousands of fam
ilies in North Carolina. On the other
hand, it is being utterly neglected by
tens of thousands of families."

| Header, and Janie Bolton. Contralto. ]
The recital was given in the college i
!antHtorium immediately following the |
'concert at the Baptist church by the i
'Oxford Orphanage singing class.
[While waiting for that part of the au-i
[dience who attended the Orphanage
[concert first early comers had the
great pleasure of hearing some excel
| lent piano music rendered *by Miss Lu
cille Holden, who later played the ac
companiments for the soloist in a high
ly acceptable manner.
I Miss Lois Guffy was chief marshal. !
! assisted by Misses Ma^y Towe. Fran- |
ces Brown. Willie Pleasants and Julia I
Wyche Allen. The attendance was 1
good and the performers were well re- :
The program was unusually attrac
tive, including as it did among the
songs both the grave and the gay and
among the readings prose and poetry,
monologue and play.
Miss Bolton's first number was a
spring song full of the bubbling }oy
ousness of youth. 'What's in the air
to-day T" composed by Edfen. She had
five other numbers on the program
ranging from Giordani's "Caro Mio
l Ben** rendered with real ability In the,
Italian of the original, through the
pathos of TolstTs "Goodbye", the sweet '
nes* and beauty of I* eurance's Indian
lore song entitled "Klmm an Indian
Village" to the light whimsical "Gar
den Song" of Koeger and the "Sin gin
and a Singln" Of NeidUnger.
Miss Bolton radiates friendliness in
such measure as to win her audience
at first sight and when she sings the
conquest is complete.
Miss Wlnstead's first reading was
Act I from the dram (taxation of Little j
Fauntleroy. She added ner own per
sonal charm to this always charming
favorite of "children of all ages from
?even to seventy.** The aod?ence was
greatly pleased also with her interpr* .
tat km of the somewhat sentimental '
reading "The Sign of the Cleft Heart"
3 m1 of the monologue by Marjorie lien- i
ti<i Oooke "Suburbanites.'*

ability to create variety of mood and '
a facility tn'dramatic expression which
cannot tail to please an audience. |
