Here is another one of those lit
tle incidents which pepper the
routine of existence here. The top
sergeant of our Company called the
company out. There was a work
detail to be done which he an
nounced. Then he said it was to be
done entirely by volunteers. Then
he proceeded to walk up and down
the line and singled individuals
out, saying, "You are a volunteer!"
C'est la guerre!
It is estimated that the soldiers
in training at Fort Jackson eat
1,250,000 eggs a month. With this
as a yardstick, it isn't hard to
imagine the other staggering fig
ures which were recently computed
at the Quartermasters. The whole
of the, Fort is now on Field rations
(which means that all men in what
ever division or regiment get the

can be made up. The .most stagger

Business Associate Writes
Of Conditions And Attitude
W. H. F. Millar, formerly of
Chicago, who now resides here,
received an interesting letter dat
ed April 3rd, during the week from
a business associate in London.
Excerpts from the letter give a
vivid picture of what life is in
England. The following reveals
something about the nights: "Ex
cept on occasions our nights have
been very much quieter this last
fortnight. It is rather uncanny
as it is quite difficult to go to sleep
without at least having heard an
Alert, though I must admit that
an All Clear is preferable. There
is no doubt we shall soon be able to
sleep through anything. I don't
know whether we should be proud
er of our powers to keeping awake
or of going to sleep."
Revenue fund collections through
April this fiscal year exceeded the
total for all of 1939-40, when a new
high record was established.
Revenue Commissioner A. J.
Maxwell reported that returns
through April 30 totaled $40,8-10,-380.78
compared with 40,147,
108.85 for all of last fiscal year.
Motor vehicle collections through
April have aggregated $34,540,
737.73, making total state tax col
lections $75,381,118.51 or 14.20 per
cent more than the July-April per
iled in 1939-40. '
i Returns from car taxes through
April last year were $30,711,001.85.
The sharp increase was attribut
ed to national defense activity.
, Returns for this month totaled
$ki,5u5,202.15 or 25.93 per cent high
er than in Apn 1940.
Car license sales are also run
hing well ahead of last year, with
a total of 624,052 through April 30,

Hens Are Doing
Their Part For
The long arm of the National
Defense Program has now reached
out and tagged every hen, says C.
F. Parrish, extension poultryman
of N. C. State college.
The U. S. Department of Agri
culture has just launched a na
tionwide drive to produce every
possible egg from present laying
flocks this spring and summer in
order to keep this country as well
as others which are resisting agres
It has been pointed out that this
goal can be achieved partly by am
ple feeding of birds on hand and
partly by filling up the nation's
poultry houses with laying birds
this fall. Present plans call for
a six per cent increase in egg pro
duction or about 10,000,000 cases
of 30 dozen eggs each during the
next 15 months,

duce enough eggs each week of the

out. "This can be accomplished
with little trouble and expense."
In his May suggestions to poul

advised producers not to sell cut
their flocks but to cull out the un
profitable birds instead. W'here

grown to replace her.
Other suggestions he issued
were: use goou leeu just as regu

er; keep the flocks coel and well
supplied with fresh water; treat
the roost poles with used motor oil
at least once every three weeks t
control or prevent red mite In

summer green feed crops now; and
dispose of or pen the male birds.
North Carolina has more than
LO.000,000 acres of farm wood
land, or more than 60 per cent of
the total farm acreage, says R. W.
