Disagrees With Editorial
F.d i TV. ? Frm!:iin Press:
Re erring to your September 2 editorial, "Any Good An- 1
swer-" i which questioned whether servicemen should receive
penisens for non-service connected disabilities > , let me briefly '!
give you my opinion on the subject
First, let me state thit I am a World War i Veteran and I
a charter member in my home town of the American Legion, !
Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, The j
Cooties, and World War I Veterans Organization.
The bill to which you refer was discussed in my World War
I veterans meeting by the membership and state officers and i
all present were against its passage by Congress. Why were |
we against this bill? Because it will decrease the amount of
pension World War 1 veterans will receive at the age of 65. It
being based on your income from all sources, if you are a
single person drawing full Social Security, your V. A. pension
will te very small.
There are very few World War I veterans who do not have
some kind of pension ? social security, civil service, or other
types of income This, added to a veterans pension, permits
us bo exist on the bare necessities of life and maybe enjoy
a few of the things we like. Our desires are not what they
were in our younger days ? so why deprive a man who has
served his country to the best of his ability of the meager
amount this new bill provides?
The serviceman with a service connected disability receives j
a pension sufficient to live on and some, according to size of
family, receive as much as $400 per month, tax free, (this
applies only to veterans after World War I), as well as divi
dends on insurance. So why should you deprive a man of 65
who did as told in time of war and received an honorable
discharge of the meager pension of $78.75 or less? The only
increase in pension rate is to the man with less than $600
per year income; it will be less in most cases ? and always
remember groceries cost the same to all of us. This small
pension will keep the welfare rolls down ? and who wants to
see a veteran on welfare rolls?

GROOMING? Every woman wants
to be attractive. And why not?
A desire to be pleasing to others,
our family, our friends, even to
strangers is a perfectly worthy
ambition, one that needs no
Attractiveness is not just one

shapeless; is your hair a mess;
your sweater soiled; your lipstick

Q. What are the advantages of
polled dorset sheep over other
A. The new strain of polled
dorsets has received a lot of at
tention lately. Actually, the fact
that they are polled, while their
ancestors had horns, is what
makes them more useful and easy
to handle. Horns make shearing
more difficult, sometimes grow
into the head, and frequently get
caught in woven wire fences and
farm equipment. And polled
animals require less feed bunk
space and are not subject to in
festation by the horn worm.
Q. How much, of the beef con
sumed in North Carolina is pro
duced in this state?
A. Home slaughtered beef
amounted to about 2 per cent of
the consumption in the state in
1958, or roughly 6 million pounds.
I Of the estimated 282 million
pounds of beef purchased through
retail outlets in North Carolina
last year only about a fifth came
Irom cattle produced and slaught
ered in this state.
Q. Just where does North Caro
lina stand as a beef-producing
A. Although cattle production
has increased considerably in
North Carolina in recent years,
the state still remains a relatively
minor producer of cattle. In 1958
cattle and calf production amount
ed to about 125 million pounds.
one-half of 1 per cent of the total
q. will milk control tobacco
A. Yes. apparently. Agricultural
research in North Carolina in
1958 and 1959 has shown that when
sprayed on tobacco plants before
transplanting, milk greatly reduces
the seriousness of tobacco mosaic
disease. Even better results are
obtained when workers dip their
hands in milk before handling
