THE PERQUIMANS WEEKLY, HERTFORD, N.v C, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1937
Editor's Note Senator Rey
nolds column for this week
comes from Portland, Oregon,
where the Senator visited the
Northwest on a trip combining a
survey of national conditions with
a brief vacation, prior to return
ing to Washington.
From the Pacific coast, after tra
versing a dozen states and talking
-vih countless hundreds of people, an
individual gets a better appreciation
of national problems and conditions
confronting our people. There id
much advantage in looking at Angel
ica from an area devoted to develop
ment of natural resources, rather
than viewing it from the industrial
East. This is all the more true when
the individual is concerned with the
welfare of a particular state in an
A Tar Heel buying a package o.
cigarettes in Oregon sees it in new
terms.- There comes the realization
that if the cigarettes are made i
North Carolina, the state is definite
ly linked with that package. It
creates a desire for great numbers
of people to see where cigarettes
are made. Equally important, it is
realized that the conditions unde-.
which the cigarettes are sold . v.m
the taxes paid by purchasers vitallj
affect the wages of factory worker,
in North Carolina and the price tnc
farmer secures for his tooacco. rev.

ally purchase a package of cigarette
The same holds true of othr:

. The broad "; program to advertise
and develop North Carolina, now at
tracting attention even out here on
the West coast, is evident that we
live in an era of interstate commerce
and prosper on new business and new
industry. . -
In this connection, a Tar Heel far
away, from home gets still another
perspective.: It is .that North Caro-
'- lina, perhaps more than any other
Southern state. has l.r. become all-
American, -? Its people have the vision
and. energy of the West, the tradV

ALMOST all of us have had the
experience of calling on friends
who persist In getting out their col
lection of snapshots and parading
them before the eyes of their de
Now please bear in mind that I
harbor no thoughts of this practice
as being a breach of social etiquette.
On the contrary, I am for It. But
there are mai?y kinds and classes of
snapshots. There are, for instance,
the snapshots that are very good as
far as exposure, sharpness and com
position are concerned but with prac
tically no human interest appeal. We
can class these as record pictures.
Have you ever heard of story-telling
snapshots? I'll wager that many
of you haven't. For that reason this
week's Snapshot Guild will be de
voted to story-telling pictures.
; Prom the cradle to the grave we
hear stories and like them. All
through our lives we retain our In
terest in story-illustrations. It is this
'appeal that takes us to the movies
and, causes us to look through the
pages of daily newspapers and mag
aslnes for pictures that tell stories
of human activities.
When It comes to taking snap
shots, however, so many seem to for
get about story-telling subjects,
They pick up their cameras and Just
shoot There Is a better way to take
There Is a vast difference between
a close-up view of a person and a
story-telling picture. A close-up
whether head-and-shoulder, three
quarters or full length is more or
less a record picture to show the im
age of the person photographed, but
it does not tell a story. You may take
a picture of Peggy standing looking
at the camera. A fine picture, no
doubt, bearing all the earmarks of
good photography properly exposed
and a good example of composition,'
but still a record-type snapshot.
Let Peggy be pictured raking the
loaves and you have a story-telling
human interest snapshot. Today as
you're glancing through the news
paper, notice for yourself whether
record pictures of people looking at
the camera or story-telling pictures
of people doing things interest and
please you more.
Before taking a picture give it a
little thought and if it is to be a
snapshot of an individual, have him
doing something and not staring at
the camera, simulating a victim of
I don't want to seem to lecture but
I do want to impress upon you the
importance of giving serious thought
to your picture taking. If you will
keep this story-telling idea foremost
in your mind when you take your
next pictures, I am sure they will be
more interesting to you and your

crimson clover, oats, vetch and Aus
trian Winter Peas?
Answer: No. The best time for
seeding clover, vetch and Austrian
Winter Peas is between September
15 and October 15 and x'or oats be
tween October 1 and November!.
The seed bed should be finely pulvSr
ized to a depth of three or four
inches with very firm soil underneath.
This will help prevent freezing out
of the crop. Put in the seed with a
grain drill as this method of seeding
gives a better stand than broadcast
ing. In seeding oats use an open
furrow drill as this will also prevent
Question: What is the best meth
od for curing meat on the farm ?
Answer : There are many methods
of curing meat and most of them are
simply variations ' of two principal
methods the brine cure and the dry
salt cure. Common salt is the basis
of all meat curing and is used in
varying amounts .in - all methods.
Sugar is sometimes added to give a
better 'flavor and also ', to counteract
the action, xf-the salt by keeping the
muscles soft, where the salt . alone
