Up Airport Body
Original Commission Expected
To Be Appointed By Town
The Red Springs Airport Commis
sion, tentatively named some weeks
ago when funds were raised to buy
property ot Mrs. Garnet T. Brooks
for the building of a port here, was
incorporated this week under a
special act of the General Assembly
which was passed in the closing hours
of the session concluded Thursday.
The legislative act creates an air
port commission of three members
with authority to operate the port
under the supervision of the town
government and the Local Govern
ment Commission of North Caro
lina. One member of the commission
is to be a member of the town's
governing body, one a resident of
Red Springs, and the third a resi
dent of Robeson county not residing
in Red Springs. All are to be ap
pointed by the town commission.
The original committee named some
weeks ago was comprised of D. M.
McMillan, member of the town com-

mission, Hira n Grantham, Jr., of
Red Springs and H. B. Ashley Phila
delphia. It is expected that these
three will be named immediately for
the two-year terms stipulated in the
incorporation act by the town com
mission. Under the act, they are to serve
without compensation except for
traveling expenses, and are em
powered (subject to approval of the
town commission and the Local Gov
ernment Commission) to purchase,
acquire, establish, construct, own,
control, lease, equip, improve, main
tain, operate and regulate the Red
Springs Airport, and for such pur
pose to acquire land, borrow monev,
issue bonds and secure them by mort
gage. But, the commission is not
empowered to pledge the credit of the
town of Red Springs under the act.
Early this year $12,000 was con
tributed by citizens of this community
to purchase a tract of 120 acres of
the Brooks property and this has
now been deeded to the town for the
use of the airport.
A topographical survey, and lay
out of the runways, as approved by
the Civil Aeronautics Authority, was
submitted to the town today by P.
A. Roberts, civil engineer. Work on
outline of runways and the small
amount of clearing and grading of
the property is expected to commence
next Tuesday, according to Chair
man McMillan of the commission.
At a recent meeting of the town
board resolutions of acceptance of the
property and expression of apprecia
tion of the board to the citizens con
tributing funds for the purpose of
the property were read and adopted
Uncle Sam Needs
That Waste Fat
"Save More Waste Fats'' is the ap
peal going to homemakers not only
in North Carolina but also to those
of the entire nation. The supplies of
those fats now being collected are not
keeping up with the ever quickening
tempo of war needs and production.
Mrs. Estelle T. Smith of State Col
lege, who is chairman of the Fat Sal
vage committee, reports that while
some counties in North Carolina are
doing exceptionally good work, the
total amount of salvaged fats can
easily be doubled and tripled.
She suggests that all civic and ag
ricultural agencies in the counties
cooperate in putting this drive for
extra fats into high gear. "Find out
where the bottlenecks are and get
them corrected as quickly as pos
sible," says Mrs. Smith. "See that
the fats are collected and arrange
for pooling of small quantities. Con
tests like those in Sampson, Gran
ville Catawba, Alamance, Pasquo
tank, Pamlico, Surry, and other
counties spur housewives and club
girls and boys to extra activity.
In Gates County, for example,
Home Demonstration Agent Ona Pat
terson is very careful to arrange for
the return of all buckets and cans to
housewives. This has resulted in in-

"Home demonstration club women
are actively supporting the drive for
extra fats. The com.runi'y service
chairman collects the salvaged ma

for delivery to the merchant.
"Organization is the secret behind
any salvage drive. Join with your
friends and neighbors in collecting
fats. There is no important work

Lowers Egg Costs
Continual culling is one of the
best methods of keeping the cost of
production of eggs at a low figure,
say the Extension poultry specialists
at State College.
Some poultrymen wait for some one
to come around and help them cull
the laying flock, when they could
very easily do it themselves. The
poultry specialists suggest that a
17074 Bales Cotton
Ginned In 1944
The tabulation of the card reports
shows there were 17,074 bales of
cotton, counting round as half bales,
ginned and to be ginned in Hoke
county, from the crop of 1944 as com
pared with 13,848 bales from the crop

catching hook be kept in each laying
house so that the loafer can be re
moved as soon as she is detected.
Other things to consider in culling
aside from molt are: color changes
in the vent, beak, and legs; the lay
bones; and the abdomen. The yellow
color in the vent, bea, and legs usually
bleaches out after the bird has laid
about six dozen eggs. The laying
bones of a producing hen are thin
ami wide apart. The abdomen of the
laying hen is large, full, and soft.
Heavy culling of the laying flock
should generally be done during the
early summer and again in the late
summer or early fall.
In culling hens that are finishing
their first laying year, the ones that
moult their feathers first are usually
considered the poorest layers. The
first body moult may occur in June
or early July. The better laying hens
will lay over a longer period of tiire,
usually until September 1.

MISTER PELTZ IS PEEVED!
Mister P. sells charts. Pie-charts, bar-charts, fever-charts in
pink and green and purple proving anything you want.
He has a nice new chart on the cost of living. It shows the price 1
of practically everything curving sharply up after war began.
But one price stubbornly stays down at pre-war levels. It's the j
price of electricity. It upsets the neat cost-of-living curves. It upsets j
P. P. Peltz. He's peeved.
We're sorry to offend Mister Peltz, but glad that we've been j
able to keep electricity plentiful and cheap when so many things j
re scarce and expensive. v
It hasn't been easy to serve busy homes and booming war plants ;
' at the same time with the friendly, efficient service we like to give. i
But aQ our folks have pitched in and worked hard to make it possible.
