Myra Slagle, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Carl Slagle, has again
brought honor to the 4-H clubs of
the district this time being chosen
health champion of Western North
Carolina with a perfect score of

her in this contest as the boy
champion was Burnice Carter of

cent. This qualifies them to eruter

state contest and went to Chicago
to the national meet of 4-H clubs
as North Carolina health queen.
Commenting on Myra's champion-
ship, Mrs. S her rill, home agent,
said, "We are overjoyed that this
time Myra has made the top with
a perfect record. She has come so
near it before, and has always been
such a good loser. Last year she
worked as hard for Emma Lou as
if she had won first place her
self." Hre is the record of Macon's
latest champion :
Couroty Health champion twice
and clothing champion once. Has
attended 4-H club camp twice and
4-H short course in Raleigh once.
Served as president of 4-H coun
cil on year.

Regulations As War Mea
sure Now Effective
Franklin merchants who carry
charge and installment accounts for
the convenience of their customers
have made a statement in this issue
explaining in a brief way how the
new government regulations will
apply to them.
Regulation "W laid down by the
Treasurer of the United States and
Board of Governors of the Fed
eral Reserve System 'instructs re
tail dealers how charge and install
ment accounts may be carried in
the future. All charge accounts
must be settled in full by the 10th
day of the 2nd calendar month
following the month in which the
purchase was made, or credit will
be cut off.
This action has been taken by
the government as a war measure
to aid both merchant and buyer
to forestall any hardships which
may come from too easy credit in
the days ahead while the nation
is at war. The regulation incurs
no hardship to those who do not
abuse their credit and who follow
the usual rule of paying accounts
by the 10th of the following month.
They do help all those who de
sire to conduct their private, af
fairs so that they may aid their
