"There should be ho discrimina
tion against children born out ol
wedlock," say the social workers.
- They have a point there, as any
sort of reflection on the matter will
show, but the fact' remains that in
North Carolina there still lingers
some discrimination against the
child born out of wedlock al
though af all things that are likely
to happen to -him bis birth is one
thing over which he can surely
have no control whatsoever The
1951 General Assembly la being"
asked to help reduce this discrim
ination. ' -"-
Consider, for instance, 15-year
old Jackie. His father and mother
were not married. His mother had
long supported the two of them
by doing whatever work she could
find, ' which was. not too much,
since she was of the, low-level In
telligence and poor education. But
now she bad fallen ill and could
no longer work. Jackie,: himself a
brlsht and Intelligent boy, faced
the probability of having to quit
school to help out the family in
come. : -Vv ,
Jackie's problem was partially
solved by an Aid to Dependent
Children grant from the county
welfare department which enabled
him to stay in school, since he ob
tained a part-time Job to supple
ment the small monthly grant
What,. you may ask, was the reas
on the father gave no help? The
answer is that since Jackie was
over 14, and since he was not born
in wedlock, there was no law on
the statute books bf North Carolin.
which could force his father to
contribute a nickel toward his sup
port, although there was no doubt
nor denial of his parentage.
At present, any father of a child
born in wedlock is required to sup
port that child until it is at least
18 years of age. If he does not do
so, he commits a misdemeanor and
the laws of North. Carolina very
properly describes a course of ac
tion which may be taken against
him to support his children. This
' provision does not apply to child
ren born out of wedlock however.
Such a child, ' who certainly re
quires as much support from his
parentSias. doe,lihe ehild. born i
wedlock, is required by the law
to be supported by his father only
until he reaches the age of 14, in
stead of 18, as. in the case of "le
gitimate children. A blU now.
pending before the General As
sembly, and already passed by the
Senate, would remedy this obvious
discrimination in our support laws
by raising the age to which children
born out of wedlock must be sup
ported to 16, instead of the present
Other measures have been en
acted into law in recent years which
have made the plight of the child
born out of wedlock much happier,
such as the one which provides that
the word 'illegitimate" need no
longer be stamped on his birth
certificate and that certified copies
of his birth certificate should carry
no Indication at all of his birth
status, , These ' measures, coupled
vMh advancing social attitude's,
have done much : toward wiping
out what in years gone by was
considered a 'lack mark" to be
overcome by the so-called "Illegitimate-child.
While the State Is moving toward
an even break" lor tne cniia oorn
out of wedlock, there continues to
be concern about the number of
births which occur out of wedlock
every year in North Carolina.
Birth certificate reforms, lifting
the support age -- these help the
child born out of wedlock, but they
do not attack the problem at Its

PLANT BED COVERS
DONT CARRY MOLD
., Some tobacco growers are de
stroying old supplies of plant bed
covers in the mistaken belief that
blue mold will carry over from one
season to the next in such covers.
Plant disease specialists at N. C.
State College say, however, that
using old plant bed -co vers will
have no effect whatever on blue
monld. ; ,
Since the supply of canvas is
none too plentiful, specialists urge
farmers to use all old covers pos
sible and thus help prevent short
ages in some areas. -
The two main sources of blue
mold, it is said, are wind-blown
spores that may travel hundreds
of miles, and old plant bed sites
