Carat, Weight, Fineness
' Carat is used by jewelers to ex
press weight and fineness, t A carat
weighs four grains, or the one hun-,
dred and twentieth part Of an ounce.
In determining the fineness of a pre-,
clous metal 24 carats is considered
the standard of purity; hence, an
18-carat cold ring would be a; ring
containing ,18' parts in 24 of pure

New Cotton Classing
Service For Farmers
A free cotton-classing service for
growers cooperating in one-variety
communities will be provided for this
year's crop by the Bureau of Agri
cultural Economics, said J. A. Shank
Lin,' extension' cotton specialist at
State College.
The service will be provided only
to growers in organized groups who
are taking active measures, to im
prove their cotton, Shajiklin pointed
out. Fourteen one-variety communi
ties have been established in 'Worth
The purpose of the. service is to
supply growers with dependable in
formation regarding the grade and
staple length of. their cotton so they
mstion twill also be a help to both
the farmers and the buyers in market
ing transactions.
From each bale of Improved variety
cotton ginned by a member of a
qualified group, a six-ounce sample
representative of both sides of the
bale will be sent to the nearest class
ing office. The two nearest to North
Carolina growers vill be in Atlanta,
Ga., and Memphis, Tenn. The office
will notify the grower of the grade
and staple length of the bale from
which the sample is taken.
The organized groups, Shanklin
saidj. must provide for the taking and
identification of samples and for
shipping them to the classing office.
Tags will be supplied by the Bureau,
and the government will pay trans
portation charges on the samples.
Growers wishing more information
may communicate with J. A. Shank

Beauty Hints
By Jane Heath
MTTOW can I swim In the after
El noon and still keep my hail
groomed tor dlnnerf.
This is the great summer beauty
problem of thousands of American
girls who lead active, outdoor lives
all day yet Insist on looking coiffed
and smartly dressed In the evening.
, - And here's the answer a new
; and practical idea.
Make swimming an asset instead
, of a liability to your hair. Use the
time and the bathing cap to give
yourself a fresh curl with "wavers"
made Just forfhis purpose. These
little green rubber curlers now
come in a new midget size which
will tuck trimly under a rubber
cap, to hold your wave while'
you swim. Only their small sise
and softness make possible this sew
' beauty secret
To keep the hair ueat at the back
of the neck. Insert ends of the hair
In the slit Roll up on the wavers
as. high as possible, to keep hair ,
out of the water. Fold the rubber
ends underneath and button Jfiem
, together out of sight jonder -the hair
- asr shown In, the sketch. Then, It
. water does seep through in spite of
all efforts, . the rolls are so neatly
wound that the bathing cap can be
removed - without v embarrassment :
The hair will dry quickly In Its
original "set" In about the time It
' takes to drive home from the beach.
r And now, refreshed from your
swim, with the evening before you, ,
.remove the wavers, to find rows of
soft .ringlets ready to go places
with your most glamorous dance '

North Carolina's 1938 cotton crop
is estimated at 911,000 acres in cul
tivation as of July 1, according to
the report released by th,e Coopera
tive Crqp Reporting Service of the
United States and North Carolina De
partments of Agriculture. This esti
mate is 82 percent of the acreage in
cultivation on this same date last
leer and is only 70 per cent of the
ten-year - average plantings from
1927-1936. ?- "'
Ihetotal - acreage planted in the
uniteu ova wis was $v,vu,uuv tut
compared with 34,471,000 planted in
1937, a decrease of 22 per cent. The
18 per cent decrease in acreage for
North Carolina was the smallest for
any state except Tennessee and was
6 per cent less than the average for
all states.
Last year North Carolina harvested
780,000 bales from 1,103,000 acres,
with an average yield of 338 pounds
of lint per acre. This is the highest
yield on record excepting the 1911
crop. Less than one percent of the
acreage planted in 1937 was abandon
ed. The ten-year average aban3on
ment from 1928 to 1937 is one per
Growers this year have encountered
quite a difficult growing season. The
time of planting was slightly earlier
than last year, but extremely dry
and abnormally cool weather caused
slow germination of seed. Many
fields were planted over and poor
stands are prevalent. The latter part
of May and practically all of June
experienced continued rains and cool
weather. Such unfavorable growing
conditions naturally have resulted in
abnormal plant growth and heavy boll
weevil infestation. Cultivation has
been greatly hampered and grassy
fields are noticeable.
Although prospects are none toj
bright at present, favorable weather
conditions later on can do much to
ward increasing potential yields.

The African Native Healers
African native healers work with
herbs, divining bones (dice), and
magic. The more mystic the meth
ods of the medicine men, the higher
they are rated in their profession.
Those results which are shown by
the healers are brought about either
by coincidence or the so-called pow
er of suggestion. Yet there are suf
ficient believers in the magic medi
cine to make it a lucrative business.
Affect Used as Noun
In psychology, affect is used as
a noun meaning feeling, emotion
and desire with an implication of
thought and conduct
