f CONTRIBUTIONS FOR FLOOD
SUFFERERS ARE STILL NEEDED
Crisis Will Continue for Sometime
Every edition of morning or
evening papers and every radio
broadcast from the flood section
brings additional stories of suf
fering and loss. At this time
nearly one million are homeless
approximately one-third the pop
ulation of North Carolina in
numbers—and supplies of all
kinds are needed. Orders have
gone from the United States
government for the complete
evacuation of great sections of
the Mississippi valley, so it is
very probable that the tale of
hardships has but begun.
From the seacoast where N. C.
sailers have gone with boats to
help in Louisville, to the moun
tains where truck drivers have
loaded on supplies and hastened
to aid, the state is answering the
call of distress. Money and
clothing are the most practical
donations from this section.
It has been pointed out by the
Red Cross officials that emergen
cy will continue to exist in the flood
area for weeks to come and contri
butions are still much needed.
Over 700,000 are homeless, ap
proximately $5410,000,000 worth of
property destroyed, and a thous
and or more known cases of pneu
monia from exposure and number
less other cases of diseases give
some idea of the staggering disas
ter that has befallen the mid-west.
A fourth of the state of Indiana is
under water, and 11 miles of the
city of Cincinatti are in similar
condition besides being swept by a
fire three miles long. The con
ditions are so terrible in Louisville,
Ky., that the city is under martial

This Was Ferreted Out
A ferret is said to be an animal
of the weasel family, being some
times used for catching rats. Ber
nice Bunn has one; he did have
two. On a day this w-eek the editor
of the Record saw the Bunn ferret
.crossing the floor of the store He
spoke to it and it turned its head
to listen, coming back toward him
in a most friendly manner. He
stooped to stroke its head but
like a flash it raked his thumb with
its sharp teeth, drawing blood.
The editor intends to let all fer
rets, be they tame or otherwise,
P. S. The ferret died the night
after it bit the editor.

Baptist church-goers ' are com

cut in the red clay around three
sides of their building. For said
ditch actually carries off surplus
water and keeps the basement dry.
No one can deny that it has been
thoroughly tested lately and some
have been surprised at the great
improvement of conditions in the
church basement. Considering the
weather, it is indeed fortunate that

Nitrate of Soda makes small grains That “soda” is Arcadian the

they need. Isn’t it logical then, in the South, by Southerners, for
that the “soda” that contain j most Southern crops. You’ll benefit by
nitrogen should do the best job? using it, too.
Norfh Carolina Growers say:
"ARCADIAN IS BEST SODA WE KNOW"
‘ My opinion of Arcadian Nitrate of Soda is that the mechanical
conditions are as near perfect as it is possible to gat it. I like it
because it distributes perfectly and gives teal good results in

results are as good as from any other form of ammonia."
