THE ENTERPRISE — r
RURAL FOLKS TO
HAVE FOOD IF
3,190,000 Containers of Food
Put Up By Farm Women
The concerted effort made this sum
mer by home demonstration club
women and home agents will assure
the vast majority of rural people in
North Carolina a supply of canned
food this winter, even though the a
mount of cash may be little.
"As* a result of the ptanned cam
paign for canning put on by the home
demonstration club members of North
Carolina last year, there were 3,190,000
containers filled by farm women,"
says Miss Pauline Smith, district home
agent of the State College Extension
service. "At a conservative estimate,
the value of this material amounted to
$638,013.40. This proved that a penny
saved is a penny earned. This year
the greatest concerted effort for can
ning since the World War has been
put otv in this state'. Many arc trav
eling via the garden-canning route.
Every dollar of the family living that
comes from the garden ai)d orchard is
just so much added to the family in- 1
come and leaves the actual cash forj
other things. Canning- has become a
bread and butter necessity in thous-j
ands of homes." ' 1
Miss Smith says a newer knowledge
of nutrition has caused rural house
wives to learn-of the body's needs for
iron, phosphorus, lime," Cellulose, and
vitamins, and home canning is the best
means of providing a sufficient supply
of these. Of course, they must be
supplemented by such fresh vegetables
as are available from the winter gar
den and from the supply of stored
fruits and vegetables.
Many farm women are learning to
can the more difficult, non-acid vege
tables this year by means of the pres
sure canner. The use of steam pres
sure is enabling them to can a sup
ply of peas, beans, and Corn, not only
safely but quickly, and with a\sav
ing in fuel, labor and time. Miss
Smith urges the continuing of the
canning program until the needs of
the family for the winter are fully

NEGRO SAYS HE
IN SLAVE TIMES

Necessities of Life for
Plymouth, Nv C„ September 23.
"When J was a slave 1 fared better
in some ways than I do now in this
depression," said Daniel Walker while
here this week. Walker," 89' years of
age, celebrated his birthday Septem
"In those .days," the aged colored
man explained, "the negro had only
to do the bidding of his master and
in turn his master looked after his
every need including clothing, shelter,
food and medical attention."
"While I was owned by Carter
Walker, a white man of Washington
County, who owne4 three slaves, I
was a servant boy around the house
and was never exposed, and 1 think
that possibly this accounts for the
longevity of my life."
During the dark days of the Civil
War, the negro boarded a ship vol
untarily and went over to New Bern
where he stayed until after the strug
gulc was over. Along with-him were
75 negroes from this section.
The former slave disregarded all
offers made him bv the Yankee sol
diers to join with them in the strug
gulc for the negro freedom. Hut the
temptation to leave his master was
too great and so he said that although
he was getting along well there-Were
thousands of negroes who were suf
He vividly recalled to memory the
times when Colonel Burnsides took l
Koanoke Island and when Butlerj
conquered Hattcras in 1801, and w*»sj
living in Plymouth when the enemy [
captured this stronghold the first I
.time and through persuasion of the]
Yankees he boarded the ship for a
destination that he knew nothing a
He remembers many of the old and
prominent men of this county. Though
a slave, he never entered the war as
he "never started the struggle and
had nothing to do with its origin and
was not going to stop it."
Maying this day qualified as admin
istrator of lid S. feel, this is to noti
fy all persons having claims against
the said estate to present them to the
undersigned or his attorney within
one year from the date hereof, or this
notice will lie pleaded in bar of their
recovery. All persons indebted to the
said estate will please make immedi
