nance Federal-State acquisition and
development of areas for wild life and
to aid in research in wild life manage

Federal use of revenue from firearms.
Hunting license fees of states taking
part in the funds must be used for
wild life conservation.

N. C. Crops Are

Wheat Is The Best Since 1900,
Survey Just Completed Shows
Corn And Apples Good
W, H. Rhodes, chief of the State
Department of Agriculture's statistics
division, forecasts the heaviest wheat
crop in North Carolina since 1900 and
said "other crops throughout the state
are growing nicely, cultivation is good
and generally favorable season pre
vails. "While complaints of continued dry
weather during June were reported
from all sections of the state, the sit
uation is much improved over that of
a month ago,'" the agricultural sta
tistician added, basing his report on
information from state-federal crop
Other crop reports were as follows;
Corn 2,326,000 acrejs in cultiva
tion, with 44,194,000 bushels expected.
Wheat A fi.228,000 bushel crop.
Oats 32,233,000 acres, indicating
a total of 4,660,000 bushels for har

A tale of a shark whose appetite
got the best of it was told by officers
of the coast geodetic survey vessel,
Pioneer, upon their return to the

The big fish swallowed a depth

cocoanut and fitted with a fuse which
burns under water. A few seconds
later a column of water shot upwards.

Place of School Lunches in the Diet
An adequate diet for growing chil
dren is of the utmost importance.
Not only many of the ills of child
hood, decayed teeth, staunted growth,
etc., but some of the physical disor
ders of later life have been traced to
lack of proper nourishment during
the early years.
Recent better understanding of the
relation of diet to diease has resulted
in studies of the food and health hab

of course, for children who jve t00

The subject of spittoons and their
use has from time to time been much
agitated in this neck of the woods . . .
or perhaps I should say . . . the ma
jor item of controversy has centered
around the lack of the use of the
spittoon ... for even when we have
them placed in public buildings seme
of our natives . . . have looked with
disdain upon them . . . and with their
Anglo Saxon independence . . . have
spit wherever they pleased ... I have
always considered the spittoon a defi
nitely rural problem ... of course I
knew they had them in cities . . . cut
I thought they were merely tolerated
and not ever mentioned . . . nnd now
we see that up in New York City they
are having a great time over twenty
four spittoons that have recently bten
placed in one of the city administra
tive buildings. ...
It stems that American Labor
, ... . which is trying to have a "say
so" about everything in the coun
try, is objecting to the spittoons
because they are marked "Made in
Germany" . . . and the city officials
responsible fir their purchase are
explaining. that thy were bought
because they were guaranteed to
be noiseless. . . . Now that word
"noiseless" has me, both puzzled
and intrigued . . what does it
mean? ... I had the impression
that the smack of the spitter as
the juice left his mouth was the
major explosion and not the
sound of the liquid as it contacted
the spittoon. . . . But we live and
learn . . . I had hoped to have an
opportunity this week to spend
sometime at the court house and
observe some of the county's out
standing spitters . . . but owing to
the holiday on Monday have been
denied the time, for this privilege.
However 1 am promising myself
that during next court week when the
county's temple of justice is "thronged
with the multitudes" that I will avail
myself of the chance to make a com
plete survey . . . and thereby satisfy
myself on this all absorbing subject .
the thought has just come . . . that
perhaps the mountain highlander . . .
(as Horace Kephart politely called us)
and the city bred spitter have a dif
ferent spitting technic ... perhaps
the New Yorker controls the'situation
. . . and makes more of an art of it
than the native of this section . . . for
I can vouch that we have many poor
shots . . . I feel certain that the other
morning when I was showered with
fragrant brown juice from our favor
ite weed . . was neither intentional
nor personal on the part of the spit
ter but merely that his aim was
bad .... I would have judged that he
is not spittoon-minded . . . therefore
has not formed the habit of a good
aim ... and no doubt his friends rec
ognizing his attitude . . . know how
to dodge at the proper time . . . but
not knowing the gentleman in ques
tion I did not realize the opportune
moment to clear the side walk. . .
While on the subject ... I would
like to tell you . . . .... about an
arrangement in one ov mar near
by western counties ... on the
center of the main hall of the
court house is a large iron ring . .
about 4 feet in diameter and six
inches in height . . a rather unique
, . . and I would judge from the
spitter's standpoint, a most sat
isfactory . , . spittoon . . . it is
filled with sawdust, sand and oi
er absorbants . , . and affords a
perfect target for both the pro
fessional and the amateur . the
degree of proficiency . . . I was
told was the distance the spitter
made with his shot as regarded the
central ring v. . this idea is merely
passed along to the county com
missioners . . . as : they might
sometime wish tohave our court
house fitted out with all modern
conveniences. . . . :
reason are not able to have a satis
factory lunch at home.
Particularly in rural territories,
where pupils have to start early and
sometimes walk considerable distan
ces, a warm nourishing lunch is nec
essary to keep the children physically
fit and mentally alert.
Most city school systems now make
provision for lunch rooms. Usually
these are cafeterias and they are ably
controlled by a manager, very often
in co-operation with the Home Eco
nomics work in the schools.
