THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1942 (One Day N
Women1 Urged To
Join War Work
By State Leader
RALEIGH Failure of enough
North Carolina women to prepare
themselves for work essential to
the victory effort is causing a se
rious reduction in enrollment in
training courses financed by the
Federal government, Director Ed
ward W. Ruggles, of the N. .
State College Extension division
Citing the War Manpower Com
mission's edict that the coming year
will see millions of additional wom
en required in war work, Director
Ruggles said too few North Car
olinians are taking advantage of
the free courses which will qualify
them for work in war Industries
and essential government activ
ties. "Women must prepare them
selves for the fast-approaching
period when they will be called on
in increasing numbers to enter the
war production program," Ruggles
declared. "It has got to be done.
Women must take a larger role in
the battle on the home-front By
preparing themselves now, they
will be ready to perform efficiently
the duties- of the man they re
lease from the production line and
ether war work for military ser
vice." Ruggles said vancancies exist in
every one of the short courses of
fered at State College for men and
women desiring to train them
selves for work vital to the vic
tory program. The situation has
arisen despite continued appeals
for more non-college students,
particularly women, to enroll and
become prepared for lucrative
jobs offered by war industries and
other agencies literally begging
for more technically trained work
ers. Some of the jobs Open to women
pay as high as $2,000 annually to
start. Ruggles had a request for
five women to take drafting jobs
paying $135 to $150 monthly to
begin. He was unable to fill the re
quest because the hundreds of
women who have completed the
short courses at State College
already are holding down essen
Nearly a score of short courses
have been scheduled to start in a
new series next month., Ruggles
said, urging women to write to
his office for a new bulletin de
scribing the courses, which last
from 10 to 20 weeks.
All expenses of the training
except students' subsistance and
textbooks are paid by the Federal
government through the U. S. office
of education. In most courses, high
school graduation is the only edu
Courses in the new series will
include, aerial bombardment pro
tection, aircraft inspection, archi
tectural and marine drafting,
chemical testing and inspection,
engineering drawing, engineering
fundamentals, fabric inspection
and testing fundamentals of ma
chinery, industrial safety engin
eering materials testing and in
spection, production supervision,
war production engineering and
contracting, radio communication
In addition, courses are avail
able in aircraft sheetmetal work,
welding and machine shop prac
tices. Hundreds of men and women
have taken the training since the
courses first started at State Col
lege two years ago. The record
for job placements has been "prac
tically perfect." Ruggles has re
ported. Usually, classes were filled
quickly. In recent months, how
ever, enrollment has declined as
the availibility of male students
decreased. The slack has not been
taken up by women, despite the
frantic appeals of war industries
and agences for technically train
For this reason, Director Rug
gles was particularly urgent today
in inviting women to enroll in
the new series. He has written a
special appeal to women's clubs
throughout the state to co-operate
in securing students.

LAST Christmas our local jewelry
store added two new depart
ments we never had carried before.
One was a toy counter, where a se
lection of movie dolls was featured.
The otheran optical department
catered to the trade who could not
afford glasses unless they could ar
range to pay for them on credit.
Visiting the shop the night before
Christmas, I watched a tiny little
girl . . I'm sure she couldn't have
been more than six ... . . standing
before the already sadly depleted
doll counter. Her eyes were big as
she looked up at the one doll still
unsold, and there was a child'i
longing in them as she tugged at the
tattered overall Jacket of her fa
ther, busy talking to the optome
"Daddy," she called, her voice
shrill with excitement, "look! Isn't
it the darlingest thing? Do you
think Santa will bring it to me?"
The man's tired face turned
toward her, and a hurt expression
flushed across it settling hopeless

Mary," he answered. "1 saw Santa

ago, and he said that he'd be about

' An unusual combination of
grains is being used this winter by
R. E. Sentelle n the feeding of his
flock of chickens, with which he
states he is getting the maximum
of egg production.
He has raised on his farm in
the Pigeon section of the county
during the past summer five grains,
of the corn and cane varieties.
These he has shredded together and
is now feeding his Chickens.
The five grains are as follows:
Kaffir corn, which has stalks like
cane, which are good for forage
and the grain is excellent for the
Grohama, which belongs to the
corn group has an abundant crop
of grain, Feterita, of the cane
group, Hegaria, corn variety, and
Milomaze, which also belongs to
the corn group.
Mr. Sentelle stated that if this
combination had ever been grown
and used here for feeding chickens
he had not heard of its use, though
he stated that commercial scratch
feed often contain Kaffis corn and

out of everything by the time he
reached our house. Reckon he
might have some sweets, or maybe
a rag doll, though. And he's prom
ised for sure to bring those glasses.
"Oh!" Tears were in her eyes,
but she fought them back bravely,
and her worn coat sleeve wiped the
last trace of them away.
"I did so want one of them," she
whispered. "But I'm glad Santa
isn't going to bring it to me. It
means that he's found someone else
who wants it even worser than I
do, don't it, Daddy?"
"Come on, Mary," the optome
trist called, taking the little girl by
the hand. "Santa told me to see
what kind of glasses you should
have, so' s to be sure he'd get it
right. Now Just sit In this chair
and do as I say."
The examination didn't last long,
and I was still there when it was
completed. The optometrist turned
to the father. "I'll make a special
effort to finish them tonight," he
He was back soon, a slip in his
hand. "I've fixed it with the man
agement. A dollar now, and a dol
lar a month until the balance of
five dollars is paid."
Mary had returned for a final
look at the toy. "Don't you think.
Daddy, that the glasses could come
as a birthday present, and ... oh,
I did want a doll so badly! But . . .
but I won't cry." .
Her father hadn't heard. He was
busy feeling in his pockets for the
dollar needed for the down payment.
He found a lean wallet, and from it
pulled a quarter and seven dimes.
He counted them over twice, a
scared look on his face, then began
a renewed search. Triumphantly,
he finally produced an eighth dime,
and handed the silver to the optometrist.'-
As the man in overalls and his
elfin daughter started toward the
door, the girl behind the doll coun
ter looked at the optometrist, then
at me, a tear in her eye. Then she
ran after the pair. "Wait a mo
ment isn't your name Mary?" she
"Uh-huh?" the little girl an
"Then 1 guess ' Santa meant you. '
He was here just a tew minutes ago,
and said he had a doll for a little
girl named Mary, but he was afraid
he wouldn't have the time to deliver
it Then he remembered that the
little girl's father said he was com
ing here, so he asked me if I'd
keep the doll and give it to
you. That's it, up on the counter.
Take it and run away, because I'm
so busy I haven't time to talk." ;
Shyly, Mary reached up for the
proffered treasure, and hugged it
Mary was speechless while her
benefactor busied herself behind the
counter. Suddenly the girl felt a
tug at her skirt and Mary was at
her side, looking up at her. "1 be
lieve you're Mrs. Santa Claus." the
child whispered, awe in her voice.
As the door closed behind the
pair, the girl took her purse from
her bag and looked inside.
"Mts. Santa Claus, Indeedl" J
heard her mutter. "Lucky for me
this is pay day. or Mrs. Santa
wouldn't eat tomorrow."
Considering the price of eggs,
at last it's the hen's turn to crow.
