A Merger Of
jThe Beaufort News (est, 1912) A
Up from Ihe Land
: In many phases North Carolina Has advanced notably in the
'. gyast generation. Standards of living have been raised and in
: gjiustry has grown, backed by progress of the land. Improve
: jgments in agriculture formed' the base of the pyramid from which
! Economic growth has risen.
The principal role in North Carolina's advance In farming
' JQbas been played by the farmer himself, his wife, and family.
S&Showing' them the way has been the state's agricultural extension
Sservice to which an endless amount of credit is due. The two
ESbave worked hand in hand to put North Carolina high in the
i ist among states that have made the greatest improvements in
'"land yields since the 1020's.
" Corn yields have climbed' through institution of the 100
ifeushel Corn Club, finer strains of hogs have been bred, tobacco
' Continues to furnish more income than any other crop produced,
liarm family living conditions have improved, better soil practices
ifiave been Used, extra dollars of profit have come to the farmer
through poultry-raising and bee-keeping, more attention has been
devoted to yield from farm woodlots, and Negro extension work is
n the upswing.
I. 0. Schaub, director of North Carolina's agriculture ex
tension service, in a letter prefacing the 1947 annual report com
mented on the state's progress as follows:
"The twenty years which elapsed between 1927 and 1947 was
truly a period of changing times. Prices boomed, prices fell, war
was declared and peace was restored.
"Each of these changes, along with many others, had a di
rect bearing upon the progress of North Carolina's agriculture.
But despite all of this, the farmers of this great southern state
continued to advance their livelihood. They worked long hours;
they gathered and sold their products, many times for less than
production costs; they lengthened the life of farm machinery be
cause of scarcities; they cut production of certain cash crops
when advised to, and raised more needed crops when called
"To say the farmers advanced would be insufficient. It vfas
not the farmer alone, but a combination of the farm family and
their" agricultural leaders. The housewife, the 4-H club boy and
girl, the county fariri and home agents, each played an important
role in this progressive movement.
"The Extension Service is proud to feel that it had a part in
helping promote farming, the largest and most essential busi
ness in this state ..."
Power's Just Around Lb Corner
On paper, Tide Water Power company's plans for this area
look fine. Whether everything goes according to sehedule is
yet to be seen. There are pressures on the company from other
areas they service and to keep everyone happy it behooves them
to smooth ruffled feather "heifer, Weiriherf, presenting plans for
improvement and then hoping that toe-roany things won't happen
to foil! them up.
ll The community of Fair Bluff has filed a complaint against
tide Water Power company with the State Utilities commission.
They are upset, a report says, because their power was off 45
minutes one day and they olalm an electrically-powered cotton gin
Ifjcan't be operated under Tide Water service.
mm We sympathize with the citieens of Fair Bluff. Their cotton
gin is just as Important to them at our fish factories, deep freeze
appliances, and Ice plants. But 40 minutes? They ain't seen

Our betting knowledge on horses,
dogs or poker is very limited. So
when several persons have asked
us what the terms win, place, and
show meant when placing a bet at
the dog track we had to look it up
for ourselves. The term Win, Place
or Show describes the order of fi
nish of the first three greyhounds
under the wire. A Win wager re
quires the selected greyhound to
finish first. A Place wager re
quires the greyhound to finish first
or second. A Show wager requires
the selected greyhound to finish
first, second or third. The Daily
Double wager involves the selec
tion of the winning greyhound in
two consecutive races.
Don't forget that next Sunday is
cees of this city. Bundle up your
old newspapers, catalogues or any
other old paper and place them on
the curb early in the morning. The
boys will do the rest. By doing
this you will help the boys as the
means of supporting some worthy
project about the city as well clean
ing out your accumulation of. old
paper. Remember the day, next
Sunday July 23.

19U in the vicinity of Marshall
berg, one finds an interesting
sketch of the activities ot the late
cd as president of the Academy
from' 1899 to 1906.
Former students of the old Aca
demy, who are alive today, recall
the smiling, jovial man who it e

characterized his post as the "big
gest" job of his career. He never
tired of telling of his first Job,
doing all sorts of work at a print
ert devil on a little'counrry week
ly newspaper. .-
Of course a very Important fea
ture of that job was the pay that
went with it. It was $75.00 f year,
payable in monthly instalments.
With the montniyt income of. $825
He paid board at hbme and was
clothed. Anything over, was turn
ed over to his mother.
His tasks used to consist, among
other duties, of shoving a. -roller
across an old hand press used In
printing the four page weekly pa
per. Setting type and cutting la
bels for smoking tobacco tins Was
also part of his job.
Fifteen years after Dr. Levister
left the printing shop for, "some
thing better" as he used to express
it, he became a minister ia '.'the
Methodist church. Describing his
experiences, Rev. Levister used to
say that his salary was only $15.00
a year, but that he managed to get
along. His first charge covered 100
square miles, on which there; was
not a house 'of worship or a mem
ber of the Methodist church.
AJ the end Of his second" year
in his "religious, desert." .he had
288 members, in hi? congregation,
Had Uuilt his first church, was
worxing on two oiners ana naa
purchased ground for a fourth.
In ,1899, Rev. Levister became
president of Graham Academy,
which later was changed to Gra
ham Collegiate Institute. He re
mained there until 1906, when, hav
ing been active in temperance cir
cles, he became editor of the Bal
timore Methodist, an Anti-Saloon
League paper. Two years later he
was made assistant editor of the
Daily Christian Advocate, also a
church paper in Baltimore, and in
1912 became editor of that paper.
Relinquishing this post as editor
of the Advocate he became assist
ant superintendent of the Anti So
loon League of Maryland. He re
mained in that position for five
years, in the meantime becoming
editor of the American Issue.
In 1918 Rev. Levister went to
Camden, N. J., in the interest of
the Anti-Saloon League, later be-1
coming a memoer ot tne .New Jer
sey Conference of the Methodist
church. For a number of years he
wrote a weekly "sermonetto" for
the daily paper of that city. Rev.
