"We expect to place 50-pound cotton
mattresses in 100,000 North Carolina
farm homes, and that means all of
Sese families can receive a comfort,

The comforts will be made in the
mattress-making centers, and compe

comforts, just as they are now in

tresses. The only charge for these
materials is a small fee for the cost
of such materials as thread, needles,
and fuel to heat the centers. This
usualOy amounts to $1 per mattress.

seeking farmers who desire informa
tion to better enable them to plan
their agricultural program for 1941
will be called upon this month to re
port t'heir crop acreages, livestock
and poultry population and give other
information for the Farm Census
which wiW be taken for the 24th time
by tax listers, Frank Parker, federal
statistician with the State Depart
ment of Agriculture, announced to-1
"North Carolina's leading agricul-.
tural authorities are unanimous in
their appreciation of the farm cen
sus as a medium for intelligent plan
ning of farm programs and as a
source of accurate information that
can be Used as a yardstick in meas
uring agricultural progress," Parker
emphasized. The 1941 farm census
summary will be sent to farm leaders
and workers throughout the State
and will be available to all communities.
Parker, urging all of North Caro
lina's 300,000 farmers to cooperate
in furnishing information for the)
farm census, explained that some of
the uses of the Farm Census are:
(1) To provide a foundation for
county estimates of crop production;
(2) To serve as a check on the state
acreage estimates published by the
United States Department of Agri
culture; (3) To provide reliable edu
cational and research material; (4)
An aid in locating crop supplies and
markets for farm products; (5) For
planning future agricultural pro
grams; (6) For state and county ad
Commissioner of Agriculture W.
Kerr Scott commented that "the
uses of the farm census in planning
a more substantial marketing pro
