Says Newspapers Are
Big: Help To Farmers
North Carolina farmers find their
newspapers a valuable source of ag
ricultural news and helpful informa
tion, according to a statement by
Dean I. 0. Schaub, of State College.
Papers in both the weekly and the
daily groups carry numerous stories
keeping the farmer and his family
posted on what is going on in the
field of agriculture and home econo
mics he pointed out.
Other stories give helpful sugges
tions regarding better ways of doing
wings on me iarm ana in tne coun-1
try home, the dean continued.
A number of county farm and
home agents over the State have re
ported that with few exceptions, the
farm family getting ahead and mak
ing tne most. of its- opportunities 4s
a family that tends newspapers re
gularly. " ;
Thefe are earlySOtjeeunty news
papers in the State published week
ly, semi-weekly, or tri-weekly, and
practically all of them have a regu
lar policy of carrying timely farm
news, Dean Schaub said.
He added that much of the agri
cultural progress of the State can be
attributed to the constructive efforts
of newspapers in keeping their rural
readers well informed.
And the State College extension
service, of which Dean Schaub is
director, is firmly convinced that
anything it can do to help the news
papers supply their readers with
worthwhile agricultural news is a
service to farm people of the State.
County farm and home agents and
extension officials and specialists at
Stafe.Colle.ge are urged to keep con
stantly on the alert for any farm
news or helpful suggestions they can
give the papers.

5,000 Crossings Safer

of 3,125 grade crossings have been
constructed or are scheduled for im
mediate construction with Federal
funds administered by the Bureau
of Public Roads. In addition stand
ard protection signals have been or
will be installed at 1,872 crossings.
This combined elimination and pro

road crossings and does not include
