THE PERQUIMANS WEEKLY HERTFORD, N. C, FRIDAY, JULY 80, 1937 "WWipiwr
The legislative decks of Congress
are being cleared for action. Speedy
consideration will be given to im
portant measures already in the Con
gressional hopper, many having al
ready undergone the scrutiny of com
mittees. Adjournment of what has
been one of the three longest ses
sions of the last fifteen years may
jgme as early as August 15, or it
iLay be prolonged until September 1.
Events of the next few days will
have a bearing on the adjournment
Of the pending measures, two are
of prime importance to North Caro
lina the wage and hour bill and
farm legislation. The former may
vitally affect the working conditions
of countless hundreds of industrial
workers in the state and any new
farm bill will, of course, exercise an
influence on the income of the agri
Wage and hour bill As a result of
careful consideration on the part of
the Senate Committee on Education
and Labor, the wage and hour bill
to be given early attention, provides
C0 only basic standards for maximum
hours, minimum wages and child
labor. The administering board
would be given some powers of ad
justment, based on forty cents an
t hour and forty hours a week. Many
- highly controversial features of the
bill, particularly as regards separate
wage and hour standards in the ab
sence of union agreements more
favorable to workers, have been eli
minated. Of extreme importance to
the South is the regional differen
tials in minimum wages permitted in
the revised bill. The measure would
apply to all establishments whose
goods enter into inter-state com
merce or compete, in a substantial
' wayfcwith goods moving into inter
state commerce, regardless of the

Farm Legislation The situation
as regards new and much-needed
farm legislation blows hot and cold.
One day it looks as if the Congress
will speedily enact new farm legis
lation before adjournment. The ut
look . for a heavy cotton surplus is
a source of concern. On other days
the outlook for immediate action is
not encouraging. ,
In other words, there are two
schools of thought on ;, the subject.
One- favors qnlkiept 'o- Wi the
fajjRen sod to rijlowwS-
gency now while crops are good and
prices are nigh. .The other school of
thought to opposed to temporary ex
pedients and hurriedly drafted laws
It includes many Congressional vet
erans and leans toward the idea of
extensive regional hearings to get at
' the roots of the problem on a perma
nent basis. There is some merit to

this plan, when it is considered that
steps must be taken to meet con
ditions ahead that can only be seen
Reconsiliation between many con
flicting attitudes and ideas and at
tempts to solve the farm, problem on
the basis of economics and not po
litics are essential to an improvement
of the status of agriculture and those
who till the soil.

If the number of students enrolled
during the life of an educational in
stitution is any indication of the con
tribution it has made to the life of
the region in which it is located
and it most undoubtedly is then
Louisburg College has rendered a
major contribution to the life of the
State of North Carolina.
Not only this but an analysis of
the number of students who have en
rolled from each of the 100 counties
of North Carolina indicates that the
service Louisburg College has ren
dered to each of these respective
counties has also been very great.
Louisburg College was founded in
the early nineteenth century but its
forerunner began operating in 1779.
Since that date at least 30,000 young
men and women, mostly from this
state, have been in attendance at
Louisburg College. This is an aver
age of over 200 per county.
The number of students enrolled
during the life of Louisburg from
Perquimans County and surrounding
territory shows that it has made a
large contribution to this particular
section. A total of 280 students
from this area have attended Louis
burg College since its founding.

In memory of my baby, Carroll
Eugene, who died one year ago, July
27, age 3 months and nineteen days.
Thou art gone, dearest baby,
Never more your face 111 see;
But I hope some day to meet you
Where there will no parting be.
Oft I'flfc. wandered to the graveyard,
Flowers to strew with loving care
On my dear, darling baby,
Who so sweetly sleepeth there.
Carroll,sGod knows how much I miss
Never shall your memory fade;
Loving thoughts shall ever wander
To the spot where you were laid.
I think of you in silence,
No eyes may see me weep;
But many silent tears are shed
When others are asleep.
Farewell, dear Carroll, a sad fare
well, The loss to m eno tongue can tell;
And when on earth I breathe no
I hope to meet you on the heavenly
Your mother, Mrs. D. L. Barber.

HIS FIRST VISIT
Mrs. A. B. Elliott and her little
son, Thomas Preston, of New Hope
were in Hertford on Monday. It
was Thomas Preston's first visit to
Hertford and if he liked the town as
much as the folks liked the fine
looking youngster, he'll be coming
Thomas Preston is, however, only
four weeks old and must for the time
being depend upon some older mem
ber of the family to transport him.
This should be a simple matter, how
ever, because there are enough of
the El'jtt family that it would be a
hardship on no one.
For the baby is the fifteenth child
born to Mr. and Mrs. Elliott, thir
teen ofwhom are living, twelve still
at home. That Mr. Elliott is a
prosperous farmer is fortunate, with
so many mouths to feed, to say noth
ing of the other necessities he must
The couple are both still young,
the mother 42 and the father 44.
Mrs. Elliott was little more than 16
when she married and Mr. Elliott
less than three years her senior.
The oldest.child is 24.

Mr. and Mrs. Harry Thach and
children, Christine and Anne, visited
