Lack Of Training
Given As Reason
For Child Deaths
.The way your child walks, runs,
and plays may well determine his fu
ture or lack of it, according to the
Department of Motor Vehicles.
The Department pointed out that
inadequate training on, the part of
parents is an indirect cause for many
of the annual, .traffic . deaths among
children under 15. years of age.
The Department figures show that
116 children under 15 were killed in
traffic accidents in North Carolina
last year. About a third of the .chil
dren were playing in the street at
the time, about one-fuxth of them
ran or walked from behind parked
cars and a fourth of them 'were struck
while crossing between intersections.
In far too many of these cases the
cWd liad never been - taught that
what he was doing was dangerous.
Ire ridiculous for parents to ig
nore the ract that, sooner or later,
Junior, is going to have to be cut
loose and sent into traffic alone, the
Department said.- Self rri$ance in
coping with' today's, traffic must -be
taught our children. They must know
how to walk and play safely.
The Deparment urged parents to
impress' the following rules on their
children: :.,, . .
1. Remember the -streets are for
cars not scooters, tricyolea or play.
2. Cross the ' street only at the
comer, preferably at one with an au
tomafcie siinral or traffic officer. Look

A $1,070,000 loan which will make

pose of furthering system improve
ments and for the construction of the

Data On Peanuts
Congressman Herbert C. Bonnet
late last week virtually assured pea;
nut growers that oil peanuts grown
under the peanut allotment provisions
for 1950 will be taken into the edible
nut trade and at edible nut 'prices.
Simultaneously, he disclosed that
House Agriculture Committee Chair
man Harold Cooley has advised him
that consideration of his proposal" to
set up a program whereby peanut
acreage would be allocated according
to demand by types will probably be
heard this week.
The assurance that the oil nuts
grown would go into the edible trade
came as the result of a conference at
planted acreage doe not exceed
X of 1947. Conrresnian Bonne

The decision to repeat "The Duplin
Story" was due to the great demand
after the sensational success of last
season. This demand came not only
from within the county but throughout
North Carolina. Many critics have
classed it as even better than "The
Lost Colony" and "Common Glory."
