Will be Recorded in History a* a 
Most Worthy Institution \
In an effort to fully utilize all !
available labor on the farms dur
ing this period ,of national-emer
gency. The Agricultural Exten
sion Service is now organizing a .
new club among the negroes to
be known as, Uncle Sam's Sat
urday Service League." This j
work will be in direct charge of '
John D. Wray, Farm Makers' J
Club Agent for the Extension j
Service, located at A. &T. Col
lege, Greensboro. He will be as- ,
sisted by L. E. Hall, Negro Dis
trict Agent in Farm Demonstra
tion work, and will utilize the
services of the 25, or more, local
negro agents in the more thickly
settled negro commnities.
It is the plan of Club Agent
Wray to enroll persons above
t >ti years of age to join the Lea
gue by requiring them to sign a
, card and return same to his of
lice. Upon receipt of the card,
those who pledge to work on
Saturday afternoons until Nov
30, 11)18, will be given a button
with asilverfield andgoid letters,
while those who continue until
Novr'3o, 1919, will t)e given a
button with a gold field and sil
ver. ,
Wray has recently written to
every leader of the colored peo
ple in North Carolina, urging
them to put thematterbeforo v the
people so that it will be an out
standing fact that the North
Carolina negro is not a slacker.
.He has estimated that by
working Saturday afternoons
the 5,000 negroes in the State
can contribute 250,000 days, or
585 years of work each week.
When all labor is so scarce, and
the need for food so great, au:h
a saving as this will mean much
to North Carolina.
The negroes of Alabama have
been organized in this same way,
and are accomplishing splendid
results for toe State.

a large crowd at the station
on Friday morning to bid the
nineteen selected men good bye,
who had been ordered to report
on that day. Mr. Simon Lilley
was chosen by thT Hoard to take
charge of the men en route to
Camp Jackson. The lied Cross
had provided comfort bags and
sweaters for each man, and
friends and relatives had present
ed other gifts to please the boys
who went away with smiles on
their faces. The squad was a
splendid assortment of the sturdy
manhood of the county, and there
is no fear that they will not do
their full duty. Those leaving
