THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
I SHALL NOT WANT: The Lord
is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Surely goodnesB and mercy shall fol
low me all the days of my life; and
I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever Psalm 23:1-6.
AUDITORIUM SHOULD BE ON
One of the urgent needs in Per
quimans in connection with the plans
for improving the schools, as this
newspaper sees it, is the proposed
rearrangement which will give the
necessary class rooms to the Hert
ford grammar school by utilizing the
mesent auditorium on the second
floor for class rooms and building a
new auditorium on the ground floor.
Thoughtful persons have always
been more or less concerned about
the danger of this large auditorium
on the second floor of a building
which is not provided with fire es-
The auditorium is frequently filled
to capacity, and in case of fire the
stairways would be wholly made'
The preset school laws of North
Carolina forbid the arrangement of
ah auditorium in school buildings on
other than the ground floor, unless
tho rtairamvs are Are-nroof.
j The auditorium of the grammar
school in Hertford should be on the
IT IS TIME FOR MOTORISTS
, TO SLOW DOWN
"Better get there late than never"
might be a good slogan for the mo
tonst who is always in a Hurry.
Seventy-six persons met death in
automobile accidents durinjr the
month of June in North Carolina
This represents a gain of 13 over the
corresponding month last year, wnen
there were 63 highway latauties in
While a certain number of the ac
cidents on the highways are the re
sults of violations of traffic regula
tion other than excessive speed, re
cause we North Carolinians Are no
toriously careless in this, respect,
most of the accidents are the result
of undue haste on the part of some
It is time to slow down!

Butter stocks are down. The
Agricultural Adjustment Adminis
tration tells us storage holdings
are fifty-five million pounds less
than a year ago -about
cent less than usual.
Most of aa like
the flavor of butter.
The White Boose
oat its importance
as a source of vita
min A, as well as an
MuMid:u eajdlv digested fat
for fuel for children's meals. More
fruits and vegetables are eaten
when flavored with butter, and less
meats. The last few years low
cost meals included salt pork for
part of the fat. Fats do slow di
gestion, so give a feeling of satiety.
Now with the lessened butter
supply and' a lessened meat supply
comes a real question of a shift
for the homemaker.
We turn first to vegetable fats.
These hut few years have seen
great mtfuwements in the taste
and consistency of these. Supplies
are available. Dr. Drummond says,
however, that animal fata, butter
especially, tend to be superior to
Tegetable fats in vitamin A. Yel
low vegetable oils, Sherman says,
like virgin olive oil, yellow palm
0Q, and maize oil may contain
ome vitamin A. We know fish
liver oQs give vitamin A.
In view of these considerations
the homemaker will not shift any
more than necessary away from
butter. She will try to provide
at least a teaspoonf ul at each meal
for each child. She will be sure
to use her quota of milk. She may
add vegetable fata to make her
family's meals more palatable and
to give the needed f ueL
rWUe Vlteaaia A
When batter is low in amount,
she will choose more yellow vege
tables, such as carrot, and green
vegetables as eaearole and spin
ach, to provide the lacking vitamin
A With leas butter the children
in the famfly should be safeguard
ed more than ever by fish ttver oBs,
such aa eod liver oil, for their vita
min A content as well as their vita

INSTRUCTION THAT IS VERY
How important that first aid should
be a part of the education of every
one was demonstrated in a very dra
matic manner on Monday when
young Russell Winslow saved the
life of Alec Wheeler who had fallen
into the river. But for the quick
work of Winslow, who has had expert
instruction in the matter of resusti
cating drowning persons, another
name would in all probability have
been added to the long list of Per
quimans River tragedies.
The annual life saving campaip
and swimming school is being con
ducted in Hertford this week by the
American Red Cross. Richard
Payne, a competent young swimmer,
is in charge. Not only is swimming
taught, with classes for beginners a.'
well as for swimmers who want ad
ditional instruction, but competent
instruction in the various methods of
life saving is given-
There is no charge, the expense be
ing met by the American Red Cross.
With deep water all about us,
surely nobody should he in ignorance
of the methods of saving lives from
