ed, Say Experts.
That composite individual, the

Presidential actions to learn what
the unlimited emergency proclaim
ed last night by President Koose-
velt means to himself and the
wife and kids.
In the immediate present, it
looks to official Washington 1 like
they'll go on hearing their cus
tomary radio programs, travel on
the usual trains and busses, trade
in stocks and do their banking just
as they have been doing it.
For according to Washington
legal experts in a position to know,
what Mr. Roosevelt did by his
proclamation last night was to lay
the foundation for using certain
But whether hell decide to use
these powers, which ones and when, '
rests in his discretion. And from
the President's own words, what
he does will depend largely on
what Adolf Hitler and the Axis
Powers do. . :
' The Situation .
' Government lawyers who have
studied the files of emergency
statutes say that this is the situa
tion! Various laws give the President
emergency powers when he de
clares an emergency to exist. In
addition he has general Executive
powers under the Constitution
whose limits still are unexplored.
In 1939, Mr. Roosevelt declared
a national emergency but limited
it to such things as increasing the
size of the army and calling the
National Guard into active service.
Last night he took off all the
wraps and threw the Situation wide
open to the use of any special
powers which are available to him
in peacetime when and if he de
cides to use them.
Consequently, the average man is
not immediately affected except in
sofar as he may respond volun
tarily to the President's summons
for all loyal citizens to co-operate
to place the nation's needs first
in mind and in action.
But the President could in the
future take further steps which
.would have a more direct effect
on everyday life.
For example, if he found it nec
essary to take over the radio,
many might find a blank at their
favorite spot on the dial.
Persons accustomed to cooking
with electricity might find that
Uncle Sam needed the power and

Farmers Told How
To Reduce Bad Eggs
A bad. egg is just a good egg
gone wrong, says T. T. Brown, ex
tension poultry specialist of N.
C. State College, "but when 175
million dozen eggs go bad as they
do each year in the United States
that's something to worry about,"
Brown said that the way to pre
vent this tremendous egg loss is to
follow good production methods on
the farm, and good methods of
handling eggs, from the nest to
the consumer. The poultryman
gives some suggestions on how pro
ducers can handle their flocks and
eggs to help cut down this loss,
and save food for defense.
(1) Keep strong, healthy, vigor
ous hens and care for them prop
erly, (2) produce infertile eggs
after the hatching season is over,
(3) gather eggs at least twice a
day in Cool weather and not less
than three times a day in hot
weather, (4) keep eggs clean and
in a cool, fairly moist place, and
(5) market eggs frequently.
In marketing eggs, Brown rec
ommends that all cracked, dirty
and very-small or very large eggs
be sorted out. Eggs should not
be washed. They should be packed
when cool never with the animal
heat in them and they should be
packed with the large end up. Egg
quality is essential for better prices
and selling on a quality or graded
basis encourages production of bet
ter eggs. :. : . .
Detailed information on produc
ing, handling and marketing qual
ity eggs is contained in a publica

What He Can Do
Among the things which legal
experts say Mr. Roosevelt now has
the power to do are the following:
Forbid Federal Reserve banks to
do business except under Treasury
Investigate, regulate or prohi
bit transactions in foreign ex
Place the coast guard under the
Navy (Mr. Roosevelt already has
transferred part of it to the Navy).
Refuse clearance to vessels of a
belligerent country which discrim
inates against American vessels or
Empower the Federal Power i
Commission to require temporary
connections for the transmission
of electric power.
Require any vessel to leave the
United States waters or prohibit
any veanel from entering them.
Remove duties from imported
food, clothing and medical sup
plies needed in emergency relief
The public, accustomed to mov- ' .., , mmtM

stantly be barred from wide areas
in the vicinity of important mili
tary or industrial areas busy with
Train accommodations might be
come a problem, if the President
found it more important just then
to ship defense supplies and sol
diers. And without waiting for war,
the President could order a gen
eral roundup of all aliens over
fourteen years of age. These non
citizens have been registered and
fingerprinted Within the last ten
months and the government keeps
a close check on their where-
portionment of Federal appropria'
Order the National Guard and
Army and Navy reserves to active
duty (this already has been done).
Suspend the law prohibiting
more than eight hours' work in a
day by persons engaged on govern
ment contracts (this has been done
in some instances).
Suspend the rules covering trans
mission of radio and wire com
munications. Close certain places to the pub
lic under the espionage laws.
Acquire land for military pur
poses (much of this already has

A lot of speeches have been made about it.

simply a TIME-SAVER.

JOCKO TELLS ANOTHER ONE
; .' ' Story 103
If there -was anything in the
world that Chatter Squirrel would
rather have than a roasted peanut,
it was some more roasted peanuts,
and he was having the best sort
of time at Blackie's house that
night When they were all sitting
around the big fire and roasting
peanuts in the ashes. Jocko had
brought in the little garden rake
that they found in Mr. Man's wagon
that night when they borrowed
Hee-Haw for the trip to the moun
tains, and he kept stirring the pea
nuts in the hot ashes till they were
roasted just right
You may know that Jay Bird was
over there, and for two little fel
lows like him and Chatter Squir
rel it was really a sight the way
they could eat Mr, Man's peanuts.
But nobody cared how many they
ate, for there was that great big
bag full of them, and Mr. Man had
bags and bags more of them over
at his house, where the Creek folks
could get some more whenever they
Hee-Haw had told Blackie that
Mr, Man had packed away in the
loft of his barn a great pile of
sacks full, and so there was no
reason to he stingy about feeding
his friends. After Jocko had roast
ed as many as he thought the crowd
could eat, he got a pan full for
himself,-and sat down for his own
; "This reminds me of the first
time I 'ever saw any peanuts, and
J ocko', "and I thought for a long
time that I wanted it to be the last,
for they came mighty near getting
me into trouble. You will remem
ber that I jumped out of that fruit
car that night when the man open
ed the door, and that I began run
ning just anywhere so I could stay
out of sight of people. I kept run
ning till I was away out in the
country, and after a while I saw
about a dozen of these stacks of
peanut vines right in a bunch I
didn't know what they were, but
they were big enough to hide be
hind, and I heard an automobile
coming from somewhere, and so I
ran for these stacks.
"I was both tired and hungry,
and so I snuggled in between the
stacks and lay down: I could feel
the peanuts under and all around
me, and though I didn t know what
sort of nuts they were, I knew that
somebody must eat them, and so
they wouldn't hurt me. And I
found that they would pop open
when I mashed them, and so I be
gan to eat my first peanut supper.
It' was a chilly sort of night, and
those stacks kept the wind off, and
since I didn't have any other house
to go to, I decided to spend the
night right there. And I certain
ly did enjoy that sleep, for it had
been mighty poor sleeping in that
fruit car all those nights, and I
needed sleep. :
"The next morning I was waked
by somebody saying, 'Woah, there'
and it scared me so I came mighty
near jumping out on the wrong side
and landing right on a man. But
I crawled to an opening on the other
side and peeped out. There was a
big wagon with two horses hitch
ed to it and a man was tearing
down a stack of the peanut vines
and piling them on the wagon.
I just had to move and I did. And
the man just had to see me and
he did. And he yelled, 'Hey, there',
and picked up a rock and threw at
me. He dida't hit me, but he came
so near it that the scare made me
forget for a long time what a good
night's sleep I had had in between
those stacks of peanuts."
