The wedge which literally made
the opening for the success of T. W.
Nixon, an ordinary iron wedge used
for splitting rails, has been in the
Nixon family for generations, hand
ed down from father to son. It was,
to Mr. Nixon's knowledge, owned by
lis great-great-grandfather. The
wedge is still used sometimes about
the home place of T. W. Nixon,
T. W. Nixon is one of the county's
most successful fanners and one of
its most substantial citizens. He
owns half a dozen farms in the coun
ty, several town Tots in Hertford,
and other property. He has reared
a large family but he is still not an
old man, is still making money.
The first money, however, that he
ever made after he became twenty
one years of age, he says, he made
by splitting rails at the price of
$1.00 for 300 rails. He used this
same wedge to split those first rails.
Splitting rails, time-honored labor,
once the occupation of Abraham
Lincoln, was the means of livelihood
for a great many men as recently as
forty years ago. Practically all of
the fences on the farms of the
South, until recent years, were made
of rails split from the native pine
and cypress. The implements used
to split rails were an axe, an iron
wedge and a wooden maul. It must
have been more than a day's work
to split 300 rails, so that one didn't
get rich quick at this back-breaking
Not many rails are split nowadays.
There is no longer the same neces
sity for fences that was the case
before the "no fence" laws which
came into existence some twenty
live years ago. Before this period,
when whosoever would might allow
his livestock to run at large, cows
grazing by the roadside, pigs wal
lowing in the mud holes of the road,
very farmer must of necessity keep
ftis fences about his fields in good
repair. It took a lot of rails for
fences then. Now that fencing is
only necessary for pasturing live
stock, few rails are used, as most of
-he fences are made of wire.
It would be interesting to know
how many other small fortunes were
begun with' an axe, an iron wedge
and a mauL '

Textile School Places
All 1936 Graduates
The Textile School of North Caro
lina State College this year graduat
ed the largest class in its history
and every graduate has been placed
in a textile position. A large per
centage of these young men have
been located in North Carolina,
which would seem to indicate that
the textile industry offers North
Carolina boys an opportunity to se
cure employment in their own native
Dr. Thomas Nelson, Dean of the
Textile School, stated recently that
he had been unable to supply all the
requests for graduates which came
to him. He said that in his opinion,
the scientific improvements of recent
years in textile machinery, processes
of manufacturing, and methods of
distribution, made the textile indus
try a more fertile field than ever
before for college trained men. To
day State College Textile graduates
are filling responsible positions in
every phase of this great industry
and the demand for graduates of
this institution is steadily increasing.
For two consecutive years the Tex
tile School of North Carolina State
College has enrolled more full time
day students than any other textile
school in America.
Some idea of the wide reputation
of this School can be gained by ob
serving that during the past year the
homes of its students ranged from
Canada to Mexico and to other for

Says Present Tax
System Too Rigid
Are farmers of. North Carolina
paying more than their share of the
tax burden ?
In a series of broadcasts, heard
every other Wednesday, Dr. G. W.
Forster, agricultural economist for
the North Carolina Experiment Sta
tion, is attempting to explain both
sides of the tax question as it relates
to farmers. The next in this series
will be heard July 15.
Dr. Forster maintains that the
present tax system is too rigid. It
is not flexible enough to meet sudden
changes in incomes, and the incomes food conservation and marketing, in
of farmers vary quite often to a teresting and helpful. This f discus-
marked degree, when the farm
come is low, growers probaoiy pay
more than a, fair share of the tax
load, but when incomes advance
sharply, such as they did during AAA
days, farmers probably expend less
for taxes than is fair.
Dr. Forster believes that a more
flexible tax system can be enacted.
In his radio talk for July 15, he will
