all the money needed to finance
the whole proposition on long
term payments and at a very low
rate of interest.
6. At the close of the canning
season the profits after all ex
penses including interest on the
loan and first payment had been
paid, would be divided among the
members according to the amount
of vegetables sold to the cannery
during the season. The one selling
S2OO worth would get twice as
much as the one selling SIOO worth.
Anyone not a member might sell
his vegetables! to the cannery but
w'ould not share in the profits. So
it w'ould be wise for everyone who
expects to grow' vegetables to join
the Association.

The above ist briefly the plan of
fered for a Co-operative Canning
Assiciation. It is simple. It gives
every one a chance to get in a
profitable undertaking with little
capital or responsiblity. It provides
away for our farmers to get nec
essary funds to house other crops
at a time when money is hard to
get. It gives employment to a great
number of people when they have
little to do, especially the boys and
girls not on farms. It gives Zebu
lon an opportunity to build a per
manent enterprise without direct
ly investing one cent of money,
First Aid Course
To Be Given
At Wakelon
The Wake County Chapter of the
American Red Cross is offering a
First Aid Course free to the peo
ple of Zebulon and vicinity, begin
ning at Wakelon School next Wed
nesday, February 24, at 7:30 p. m.
The c lasses will be held two nights
a week for a period of three weeks.
Most people know very little
about First Aid, though each’week
that passes practically every per
son has an opportunity to render
some treatent. Because of the lack
of first aid knowledge, many injur
ed persons are allowed to suffer or
possibly die.
Some of the First Aid technicali
ties that are covered in this course
are: treatment for fainting, shock,
burns, scalds, gas, electrocution, or
drowning, splinting broken bones,
and many other things that every
one should know how to do in cases
of emergency.
Hearty co-operation is urged and
hoped for in the community. With
out adequate co-operation, this
invaluable course cannot do the
good it is meant for.

The Zebulon Record has believed
for a long time such an enterprise
w'ould be profitable to the commu
nity and has advocated it on num
erous occasions. This is an oppor
tunity for the town to establish a
new and going business in our
midst that will not hurt but great
ly help all other business. It gives
our farmers a new market, one that
will give them more real income
from the acreage used than
other on their farm. The crop may
be planted and harvested in three
months. The tomatoes grown in
this section have a richer flavor
and more beautiful coloring than
those grown in the trucking section
of the state.

of the Record or Mayor Bridgers.
It is necessary to act at once if
Zebulon gets a cannery. We heard
a man over long distance speaking
