The Kellogg Foundation is mak
ing a study of schools in nine
counties in North Carolina. The
drop-out problem in Duplin has
caused : much ; concern among our
school minded people. The follow
ing article, taken fom the Kan
napolis Independent is proof that
in Cabarrus County the drop-out
problem is i- even greater than ; la
Duplin.; tMisery' loves Company.)
.r After two year of Interviewing
and compiling i and' interviewing
again, Wlnecoff school is ready to

Wednesday night, Dr, Gordon
Ellis of the sponsoring Kellogg

the findings. V;.-'
Most startling thing revealed to
the three page report was the fact

ent toward their children dropping

group of lay persons in the com
munity. They interviewed both
graduates and drop-outs from the
years 1948-49, 1949-50 and 1950-51.
Employers were also questioned. ;
In view of its findings, the com
mittee concludes in its report that

tion. 1

Easter Blrda and Eggs
Small turkeys will be plentiful
on Easter markets, according to the
U. S. Department of Agriculture.
Price-wise these birds are expected
to be among the best choices for
the Easter dinner platter. The in
dustry reports that Easter now is
the third largest turkey day of the
year, ranking next to Christmas
and Thanksgiving.
Here's a suggestion about buy
ing Easter eggs: Though the color
e f.avi' tr i.. v-iue of
i, people in some ktcii.ieS pre
fer those with white shells and
will pay 5 to 10 cents a dozen more
for them, while In other places
brown eggs are in demand and
bring higher prices. When it comes
to buying eggs for the youngsters
to color and decorate for Easter,
however, you may save by select
ing the less expensive shell color.
White eggs are best for dyeing-
in fact, some companies offer spew :
cial prices on white eggs for East
er. But brown eggs may be attract- 1
lvely decorated in other ways.,
'One reason the dollar-buys I
is that it has more to buy,
