Triple A Pay
For Forest Work
The Wilkes County Production and Mar
keting Administration, better known as
the Triple A farm organization, during the
coming year will pay for forest improve
ment work, including timber thinning, tree
planting and stand improvement.
In this manner the Triple A is recogniz
ing Wilkes county's greatest cash crop
and will help to make farmers more con
scious of the great need for forest con
servation and improvement.
The encouragement which Triple A pay
ments wiU provide win be reflected in the
future income from Wilkes forests, and
every farmer with woodland acres would
do wen to investigate fuUy what the Triple
A has to offer and include such practices
in their farm plans.
Attention is caUed to the fact that for
estry practices should be declared in ad
vance on Triple A forms, and that farniers
interested should get specifications from
the Triple A office before entering into
forest work in anticipation of Triple A
Pedestrian Toll On
Pedestrian fatalities showed a 100 per
cent increase in September this year as
compared with the same month last year,
a report released today by the Depart
ment of Motor Vehicles revealed.
Twenty-two pedestrians, seven of whom
were children, were struck down on the
streets and highways of the State as com
pared with 11 last year. The 22 brought
fatalities for the month to 80, an increase
of 18 per cent over the 68 persons who
died last year. Deaths through September
Injuries numbered 876, representing an
increase of 22 per cent over the 720 in
jured during the same month of last year
and bringing to 6,928 the total personal
injuries this year.
Although' September fatalities were on
the increase over those in the low fatality
year of 1948, they were still below several
previous years, when travel was much
less than this year. In September 10 years
ago, 91 persons were killed; in 1940,
113; in 1941, 112; 1945, 82, 1947, 87.
War years dropped below this year's total
with 70 in 1942; 50 in 1943; 65 in 1944.
In 1947, 79 were killed.
Personal injuries, however, reached an
all-time high for September. A check of
injuries during Septembers of the past
10 years showed: 1939, 614; 1940, 542;
1941, 641; 1942, 374; 1943, 292; 1944,
309; 1945, 486; 1946, 488; 1947, 544;
1948, 720; 1949, 876.
Accidents in September also topped
those of previous Septembers. The num
ber last month mounted to 1,911 as com
pared with 625 in 1939; 891 in 1940
1,040 in 1941; 484 in 1942; 497 in 1943
545 in 1944; 813 in 1945; 897 in 1946
1,050 in 1947; and 1,491 in 1948.
In addition to the 22 pedestrians killed,
93 were injured, 45 of whom were chil
dren. Mecklenburg, Person, Wilkes and
Craven Counties reported two pedestrians
each killed; Alamance, Bladen, Buncombe,
Cherokee, Cleveland, Cumberland, Dur
ham, Gaston, Halifax, Haywood, Hender
son, MoDowell, Bobeson and Wayne, one
each. Mecklenburg's fatalities were both
in Charlotte. Waynesville, Mt. Olive, Wil
kesboro and Marion had one each.
OoXBffions of motor vehicles took the
lives of 21 persons during September. One
person was killed in a collision of a motor
vehicle and animal-drawn vehicle and one
in a collision with an animal. Only one
bicyclist met his death. Three deaths oc
curred when motor vehicles struck fixed
objects. Twenty-five persons died when
their vehicles overturned or ran off the
A total of 3,223 drivers were involved
in traffic accidents, with the 35 to 44 age
bracket leading the group. Drivers from
25 to 34 were in more fatal accidents,
however. Four hundred and seventy-nine
drivers were speeding when they were
involved in accidents, 14 of which were
fatal. A total of 379 drivers did not have
the right of way when crashes occurred,
seven of which were fatal. Other drivers
in violation were as follows: 358 driving
on wrong side of road, 12 of whom were
in fatal mishaps; 191 following too close

Christmas Seals are sold in 29 countries
to raise money to fight tuberculosis.
The 43rd annual Christmas Seal Sale
will be conducted from Nov. 21 to Dec. 25
to raise funds for the nationwide tubercu
losis control and prevention programs of
the 3,000 associations affiliated with the
National Tuberculosis Association.
The first Christmas Seal Sale in this
country was conducted in 1907 in Wil
mington, Del., in an effort to raise $300
for the care of a group of tuberculous pa
tients. So successful was the sale that
$3,000 was raised.
The late Miss Emily P. Bissell, founder
of the Christmas Seal Sale in this country,
was honored in 1942 by the National Tu
berculosis Association with the award of
the Trudeau Medal for distinguished serv
ice to the anti-tuberculosis movement.

Do you know how to grow old graceful
ly? Of course, some of us don't like
think about growing old, but it is just as
inevitable as evening follows the morning.
The Associated Press reports ten rules
on how to grow old gracefully by Dr. Her
man Seidel, Chief of Medicine at the He
brew Home for the Aged and Infirm, Bal
timore, Maryland. He gives these rules in
one chapter of which he is author, in a
new book, "Rehabilitation of the Handi
capped," edited by William H. Soden. To
grow old gracefully a person should do the
1. He should continue to work at his
vocation and retain his accustomed place
in society as long as possible.
2. Avoid sedentary habits and inactiv
ity; continue with whatever open air ac
tivities or hobbies he may be accustomed
to; if he has none he should acquire some.
3. Engage in systematic daily exercises,
designed to prevent or overcome physical
deformities; these should include the prac
tice of deep breathing.
4. Make full use of helpful gadgets such
as hearing aids, eyeglasses and dentures.
5. Keep face and body free from un
6. Always maintain self-respect and
dignity; be jealous of his appearance,
dress neatly, and retain good manners.
7. Continue contact with buddies and
lifetime friends, and learn to make new
ones. - - ? M
8. Follow good boby hygiene and sani
tation; eat sensibly?a well-balanced diet
of nourishing food.
9. Seek medical advice at frequent in
tervals, and carry out in full the advice
10. Above all avoid despair and an out
look of futility, and "Fear God and Keep
His Commandments, for this is all that is
Required of a Man."
It is quite interesting to note that Dr.
Seidel brings his rules to a climax with
the injunction to walk in fellowship with
God, striving to keep His Commandments
Add these rules to your scrapbook. They
have been published with some other sug
gestions along this line recently.. A reprint
can be had by writing The Everyday Coun
selor in care of this newspaper enclosing
