of no worry, even though it will

LOST FOR 7 YEARS, DOG
FINDS HIS WAY HOME
After wandering for seven years
a dog is back home. Nobody knows
where he was or what strange
sense brought him back to his little

PROUD W. Kerr Scott, Com
missioner of Agriculture, was
mighty proud the other day when
he learned of a recent poll taken
in Waynesville. It seems that a
number of neonle were asked to
give their ideas as to the compara
ble importance of the following
offices: Governor, President, or
Commissioner of Agriculture. Com
missioner Scott won, and probably
should have, for 72 per cent of this
State's people live in the country.
And an outstanding fellow in Ral
eigh remarked a few days ago that
he was more concerned about who
would compose the next board of
county commissioners than he was
as to who would be the next President.

Beam, LeRoy Martin, Forrest
Heath and other men here in Ral
eigh will eat turkey this Thanks
giving which was killed over a
year ago, thanks to freezer lock
ers. Several of them last Novemb
er bought turkeys, killed them and
placed them in the freezer locker
plant situated here. The tempera
ture in these lockers has been kept
around 10 degrees below zero, so
these brave families are of the
opinion their turkeys might be even
better than if they were freshly
killed. So mought it be and the
Martins, Beams and Heaths won't
be bothered by the five per cent
turkey shortage in this state.

REPORT GOOD WHEAT CROP
In spite of the war, the Italian
wheat crop this year is believed to
have been as large or even larger
than the pre-war average. The
1943 crop may have amounted to
as much as 280 million bushels.
That estimate compares with unof
ficial estimates of 2G8 million bush
els last year.
NOTIFICATION OF "NEXT OF
Notification of "next of kin" of
naval personnel killed, missing,
wounded, or captured except
where death occurs within the con
tinental limits is generally a tele
gram giving such available infor
mation as may be divulged. In
case of death this telegram is con
firmed by a letter from the Secre
tary of the Navy, conveying con
dolences and giving any additional
details. Next of kin are also furn
ished data as to lights and bene
fits to which they are entitled. In
the case of a "missing" person, the
next of kin receives a letter about
the continuance of allotments for
insurance premiums and for de
pendents. If the navy receives fur
ther details of the casualty, next of
kin are promptly notified.
