ANSWER: If a good representa

it should be good for a period of
from three to five years. The length

ANSWER: One reason, and a good
one. is that the livestock industry
helps furnish the family food sup
ply. Livestock products used on
North Carolina farms In 1951 were
valued at $90 million and cash sales
in 1951 were worth J147 million. In
other words, the value of home con
sumption approaches the income
from cash sales. That .$90 million'
figure brings up two other points:
(1) Texas is the only state exceed
ing North Carolina in value of live
stock products used at home and
(2) in North Carolina livestock pro
ducts used at home are worth al
most twice as much as home con
sumption of all crops. :

As a public service, this news
paper is reproducing samples of
Stajte advertising appearing in na
tional publications to attract new
industries and more tourists to N.C
The first of a series depicting
the Satte's advantages for location
of new and expanding industries
appears this week. These advertise
ments, supplied by the Department
of Conservation and Development,
are exact duplicates of ads now ap
pearing outside North Carolina.
They are published by this news
paper without cost to the State in
the belief that the information con
tained will be of benefit to readers
interested in knowing more about
North Carolina's advantages of faci
lities for economic development.
During 1953 State advertising.
tourist and industrial, appeared in
49 newspapers carrying . 88.92296
individual messages, and in 35 mag
azines carrying 72,344,432 messages.
The investment was approximately
1145,000 which was returned to the
State Treasury many times in taxes
resulting from new business created.
No North Carolina newspaper has
charged the State for publication of
its development advertising since
the inauguration of the State ad
vertising program in 1937. At that
time the North Carolina Press Ass'n
adopted a resolution 'placing Its
members on record as favoring use
of the entire State fund for Invest-,
ment in advertising' in out-of-state
publications, and this 'policy: has:
been adhered to stirctly .
At the winter meeting in Chapel

An Ema la Bora '
: America's big corporations are
honored many times in many ways.
But officials of Swift & Company
were more than a little surprised
when they received notification that
the management of the Mesker
Park Zoo in Evansville. Indiana,
had named a baby emu "Pard" after
the company's dog food.
First of all, they couldn't get the
connection between a dog food and
an emu. And secondly, admitted
Harold Wilson, ' vice president In
charge: of sales, "we didnt quite
know what an emu was anyway.'
But both mysteries were quickly
Seems that the emu is an only
slightly smaller , first cousin to an
ostrich. A native of Australia, it is
not uncommon in U. S. coos. But
what is uncommon is to have zoo
emus hatch a baby emu. In fact,
until Pard's arrival, only one had
ever before been bom in captivity
in this country.
But Park .Superintendent Robert
McGraw of the Evansville zoo fig
ured out that the inability -to re
produce might stem from a lack
of some of the essential minerals
of vitamins in the birds' diet So,
having Pard dog food on hand for
the coyotes and foxes, he decided to
try it on the emus, Emma and
And it worked.
Emma laid nine eggs, which Hir
am (as is the custom among emus)
dutifully sat on for the required
58 days. Two of them hatched and
one chick lived. '
So Superintendent McGraw nam
1 him "Pard" and mother and
child are both doing well, thank
ment of Conservation for its adver
tising program, and endorsed the
idea of public service re-publication
of the ads by North Carolina news
