Senator William B. Umstead is the
only man with adult "dirt farming"
experience to serve North Carolina in
the U. S. Senate since Hon. F. M. Sim*
Born on a farm in Durham County,
the Senator spent the first 21 years
actively engaged in growing tobacco
and other farm crops.
He Knows Farmers And
And ? He DOES something about
them. As a member of Congress he
voted for the Agricultural Adjustment
Act, the Rural Elecrification Act, the
Farm Tenant Purchase Program, the
Soil Conservation Act, and the Tobac

Senatorial Candidate In This Election With
Any Personal Farm Experience.
With critical farm legislation facing the Congress, North

Estimates On Enrollment
There are busy years ahead
for North Carolina's little red

I olina Agricultural Experiment
I Dr. Mayo recently computed
! estimates of the number of new j
| first graders that white and non
I white schools might expect dur
I ing the next six years. He con
j eludes that in 1954 first grader
I enrollment in white schools will
; be half again as large as it was
? in 1946. In non-white schools
| there will be a third more new
first graders In 1954 than in
The sociologist bases his esti
mates on the birthrates from
1939 through 1947, correcting
each for infant deaths. He as
sumes that babies born in a
given year will be ready for
school about seven years later.
Using 1946 enrollment as 100
per cent, Dr. Mayo says the
percentage of white first graders
should be 107.6 in 1948, 117,4 in
1949, 125.4 in 1950 118.5 in 1951,
113.0 in 1902, 134.6 In 1953, and
151.4 in 1954.
In other words, for every 100
white children born in 1939 and
starting school in 1946, there j
will be 151 startih* school In
1954. Foi- every 100 non-white
children born in 1939 and start
ing school in 1946 there will be
about 134 starting sdhool in 1954. j
