FARM WOMEN DESIRE HOME
Is there not a fine opportunity for
FERA to put on a very worth while
project in Perquimans?
With the women of the county
vainly pleading for a home demon
stration agent to help them and to
work with them in their efforts at
more successful home-making, many
of them property owners who have
signified their approval of a slight in.
crease in the tax levy if it is neces
sary in order to receive this service
which their alert minds recognize as
one of the most supremely important
things in their lives, it is somewhat
ironical that they can have no part
in the work of the agent and her
several assistants who will work un
eder the FERA in Perquimans.
Whether or not it is possible to
secure, through the FERA, a county
home demonstration agent to work
with all farm women, this news
paper is not informed. It may be
that there are regulations which
make it impossible.
If such an arrangement is possible,
it would be one of the most worth
while projects the FERA could con-
duct in Perquimans.
It is a fine thing to furnish to the
relief families the service of a home
1 maker, which is the title of the work
er to be furnished. Doubtless, this
-class are more in need of the service
than any other. At the same time it
tdoes not seem fair to withhold from
the farm women who are not on the
relief rolls the privilege of sharing

to take this matter into considera

And there is healing- in old trees;'

Why may not I, as well as these, ,

By Karle Wilson Baker.
A hundred years ago board could
be had for students at the Belvidere
Academy, in the homes of neighbor
ing residents, at the rate of five dol
lars a month. Money must have been
more scarce then than now. Laun
dering the bed linen and towels would
cost that much now.
Many Perquimans people remember
Elihu White, of Belvidere, the father
of Dr. E. S. White and of the Misses
Emma, Clara, Margaret and Lucy
White, all of Belvidere. -He was
born the year that the Belvidere
Academy was instituted. Mr. White
was named for Elihu Anthony, the
first teacher in thetschool, the young
man who came from New York to
teach in the school, and who died of
fever three months after beginning
How long lives a goose? Although
I have asked the question over and
over, nobody seems to know anything
about how long a goose generally
lives, but it isn't generally believed
that they live for more than half
dozen years. Maybe ., it is because
they are not generally allowed to live
on as long as they will,
However that may be, it has come
to my attention that there is a goose
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas
Chappell, of the Bethel neighborhood
which has been on the place lor at
least a quarter of a century, and a
gander which is 21 years old. Other
geese have been raised on the farm,
with each spring a new flock of
downy, yellow goslings pecking the
new grass shoots about the place, and
old geese have been sold off or have
died. But these two, this old, old
goose and the almost-as-old gander,
have lived on.
Roy Chappell, a son of Mr. 'and
Mrs. Thomas Chappell, who is a mem
ber of the Board of County Commis
sioners, says that he dates the age
of the goose from the death of his
grandmother. The goose was not
raised on the farm, but eame to the
farm, .several years before his grand
mother died, from nobody knows
where, and stayed. Every year the
old goose has laid her quota of eggs.
This year she did not lay, for the
The ancient gander was raised by
The goose has for five years been
blind in both eyes, and one wing
drags now, having been broken when
a mule stepped on it since the sight
of the eyes were lost. The gander
has also lost the sight of one eye.
The Chappells by now doubtless
feel that the two old fowls are a part
of the family, and they intend to keep
them as long as they will live.
To Beef Club Member
A one-year scholarship tp State
College will be iwarded the 4-H club
boy who grows, and exhibits the Best
baby beef calf at the North Carolina
State Fair this fall.
The scholarship has been offered
to promote interest in baby beef work
and emphasize the importance of
feeding a balanced ration to growing
stock, said L. R. Harrill, 4-H club
leader at State College,
Baby beef work is being revived in
North Carolina through the efforts
of a group of feeders in the western
past of the State and through the in
fluence of 4-H clubs, Harrill stated.
The scholarship, to be applied to a
ccur.e in animal husbandry or dairy
ing, is offered by the National Cot

Meat Animal Prices
North Carolina farmers are being
cautioned not to sell their beef cattle
hogs, and sheep at prices lower than
present market quotations.
A number -of fanners not in close
touch with the market have sold
their animals recently for one-half or
a third of their value, says L. I, Case,
animal husbandman at State College.
Beef, prices have risen about 60 per
cent and pork prices have approxi
mately doubled within the past year,
Case said, and the prices paid local
farmers should go up accordingly.
Although pnees paid for livestock
at the farm cannot equal those paid
at central markets', Case added, grow
ers should not sell their mdat animals
without checking up carefully to see
what they are worth. ;s .
The, current outlook gives promise
of a continuation of the present price
level, he stated, and local growers
need not dispose of their, stock jnow
for fear that prices willtumblf in the
near future. .. VUv: 4'i;!

, Question: When' should alfalfa he
cut for hay? . '"- W-- - :
Answer: The first cutting should
be made when the flowers are from
one-tenth" to -one-fourth in bloom.
Where there Is danger of leaf hopper
damage the first cutting can be de
layed until the last week in May.
This will reduce the damage later In
the season but ' sometimes results in
a poor quality of hay. ; Later cuttings
should be made when the new growth
is well started from the crowns. ;The
last cutting ghould be early , enough
to allow the alfalfa to make from four
to six inches of growth before winter
sets in. mm
