THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
SHALL WANT NO GOOD THING:
For the Lord God is a sun and a
shield: the Lord will give grace and
glory: no good thing will he with
hold from them that walk upright
ly. Psalm 84:11.
ENTIRE COMMUNITY LOSES
In the death of J. T. Brinn, not only
has his family lost a loving and in
dulgent father, a kind and faithful
husband, a considerate and thought
ful brother; not only has his church
lost a loyal and helpful member, but
the community loses an honored and
Mr. Brinn's devotion to the wel
fare of the community was second
only to his love and loyalty for his
family and for his church.
That, the people' are conscious, at
; least in some measure, of such loss,
is indicated by the unusually large
. number of persons who gathered to
pay their last respectful tribute to
this beloved citizen. Seldom have so
many attended a funeral in Perqui
mans. The mute tribute of the presence
of such a throng spoke eloquently of
the esteem in which J. T. Brinn was
held by his fellows.
AGAIN A NEW PAGE IS
And so we turned over a new leaf
.This has happened to some of us so
many times that we have begun to
wonder how many more pages there
For quite some years now we have
been turning them over, a fresh page
every year, every year a nice, new
heet on which to write in this Book
At first we didn't give much heed.
We didn't stop to think that the sup
ply might not be inexhaustible. We
just turned over another fresh new
page every year and let it go at that.
Maybe we were'nt careful to keep
the. new page neat, to write carefully,
to write well. There always seemed
plenty more pages, plenty of time.
But, we've turned over so many.
We've spoiled some. So few have
turned out very creditably or as we
meant them to. And now we begin
to realize that there cannot be so
very many more of these nice, fresh,
clean pages,, and sometimes we won
der if there may not be even fewer
left than we imagine.
So sow what?
We can't go back, you know. .And
there isn't another book for any of
us. Each one of U3 has just one book.
No exceptions are made.
And in the words of the poet:
"The moving finger writes and hav
Moves on, nor all our piety nor all
Can ever call it back.
Nor all our tears wash out one word
But here is this fre3h new page,
clean and unspoiled!
Wouldn't it be great if eaeh one of
us could write something worth while
on this page?
ARE WE LAW-ABIDING OR
What's the matter with Hertford?
Are we just plain law-abiding citi-
ens, or haven t we got caught?
There isn't a soul in the jail.
There was no session of Recorder's
Court held on Tuesday for the rea
son that there wasn't any case to try.
There was only one case tried the
previous Tuesday, wherein the youth
ful colored defendant charged with
stealing chickens was acquitted.
Judge Darden hasn't tried a case
: during the holidays in his court.
Not an arrest has been made dur
ting the entire period of the Christ
mas holidays, unless you count the
matter oi tne cniei ox police arrest
ing his little son for shooting firecrackers.
v Maybe we are aH law abiding, but
I Just cant believe that that small
child is the only person who deserved
a court sentence. It just doesn't ring

siderable value, ' The publication may

to the agricultural editor at State Col-
-,' Question,: We would like to have a
washroom installed on the first floor.
What is " the r minimum amount of
space in which a closet and lavatory
can be . accommodated ?--,
' Answer: A space three .feet wide
and seven feet long is ample for the
two plumbing fixtures and allows for
a door tn the center with possibly a
window opposite the door. It is air
ways helpful in seeking a"' location
for an : extra bathroom Or a down
stairs lavatory to remember that a
one-piece closet is 26 1-2 inches long,
the popular type of pedestal lava
tories are from 20 to 27 inches wide,
and tubs are either 5" or 5 1-2 feet
long and 34 inches wide. These are
average figures. There are many
variations, particularly in the size of
lavatories. It is best to consult with
a reliable and experienced plumbing
contractor who can give expert ad
vice on the location of the fixtures.
Question: Will it be necessary foi
me to hire a licensed architect to
draw up plans and specifications foi
my house under Federal Housing Ad
Answer: It would appear the part
of wisdom, although not definitely
required. In order to obtain a loan
it is necessary to submit plans and
specifications and if they are accept
able it does not matter who prepares
them. Most states, however, have
their own laws covering the matter
and in many instances they require
the employment of licensed architects.
Question: Should a buyer wish n
loan under Federal Housing Admin
istration rules and your appraisal
value wa3 $5,000, on which you
would guarantee a loan of $4,000,
could I as builder, take back as a
second mortgage $2,000?
Answer: No. Second liens are
prohibited in all instances.
Question: I would like to repaper
my living room in some light color
but there is a fireplace which, some
times smokes. Is it true that there
is wallpaper which can be washed on
the market ?h
Answer: All leading wallpaper
manufacturers now make washable
wallpaper, using fade-proof inks.
Question: Is gas and electrical
equipment eligible under the rules
governing loans made through the
FH A plan ?
Answer: Yes, providing such
equipment is of the non-removable

Prune Yard Shrubs
During Winter Months
The best time for pruning flower
ing shrubs in North Carolina is in
December, January or February,
recommends J. G. Weaver, of the
State College department of horticulture.
During the cold weather months,
he says, pruning stimulates new
growth and the wounds heal more
quickly. When the leaves are off, it
is also easier to determine which
stems and branches should be cut.
There is no serious objection to
cutting off the flowering wood of
shrubs which flower in the spring if
the pruning is done carefully, he
adds. Shrubs would : always be in
good shape if pruned as carefully as
- In pruning, remove all the .dead,
diseased, broken and crossed branches.
Burn twigs infested with disease. It
is also advisable, he said, to cut out
the older branches before they die
and give new growth a chance to take

Higher Quality Eggs
Sold To Hatcheries
The success and strength of the
poultry industry in a state is deter
mined by the hatcheries and the qual
ity of the chicks they sell, says Roy
S. Dearstyne, head of the State Col
lege poultry department
This is due to the fact that most
chicks reared are the product of local !
hatcheries, he says,' and the. -quality
of the chicks reflects the degree of
cooperation between state officials
and hatcherymen in raising flock stan

, The blood testing work' carried on
by .the state department of agricul

Expansion of the personnel has
made it possible to increase the blood

44 hatcheries, with an incubator capa
city of 750,000 chicks, cooperating
with the state, he says.
Practically all the breeds and varie
ties of chicks used in commercial poul
try work are available in North Caro

only locally-produced eggs, and in so

Tobacco Contracts ,
- Declared In Effect
"r , 1 ox ;
The tobacco adjustment contracts;
signed last ''winter by flue-cured to
bacco growers haye been extended
into 1985, with certain changes, E. Y.
Floyd, of State College, announced -thia
week, " ' "
A a result of the 1934 adjustment '
program, Floyd' said, the surplus of ;
flue-cured tobacco has been elimin
ated and the carryover is slightly be-'
low normal. Consequently, the allot
ments in 1935 will be a little larger'
than last year. ' r . ,. j - "
The growers will be given the prlvfl- -.
ege of producing either 85 or 90 per .
cent of their base acreage and pro
duction. But growers who produce 90
per cent will get only one half as
much in, rental payments as those
who produce only 80 per cent, Floyd
added. , , ... .. . i .
The 15 per cent reduction scheduled
for 1935 is only one half as much as
the reduction last year, he continued,
and the rental and adjustment pay-
ments will be scaled down to one half
the previous, amount.
However, the rentals will continue'
at the rate of $17.60 an acre on the
land retired from tobacco cultivation.
Ihe adjustment payments will be .
6 1-4 per cent of the net sale vahift:
of the 1935 crop. The deficiency
payments will be at the rate of one
cent a pound on the amount by which
a grower fails to produce his allot
ment The rental payments will be made.
after compliance with contract is
checked, Floyd said. Last year they
were made shortly after the con
tracts were signed.
For growers with a base of less
than four acres, the rate of the ad
justment payment will be increased,
in accordance with the terms of the
contracts, to a maximum of 12 1-2
per cent of the value of the 1935
crop, Floyd added.
Pitt County tobacco growers voted
unanimously for a continuance of the
