Local Farmers Show Cattle Breeding Interest In Dairy A' number of Perquimans County farmers are becoming interested in ar tificial .breeding of dairy cattle. A meeting was held in Eliabeth City on Thursday night to discuss the possi bility of forming an association in this area. County Agents and interested farmers from Chowan, Perquimans, Pasquotank and Currituck counties were present J. P. Brown, Exten sion Dairy Specialist, 'was there to explain the organization and operation of such. an association. (He -showed slides to illustrate his talk. Among the slides were several of the Dairy Bull Stud maintained at Asheville, Following his talk, a general dis cussion was held during which farm ers and dairymen from the four coun ties' expressed their opinion of the possibilities of the work. All seemed .to be very .Interested in forming an association.

The joint UmiraDriationa committee has complet-J led hearings; other committees nave acted and reported on most oi tne bilfs before them, leaving only recent introductions and certain controversial measures for study. This clearing of committee dockets, the speed-up in calendar action, and an obvious ten Hencv for members to introduce bills they have been holding back are all evidence that this legislature is try ing to focus on an adjournament date. Whil that date may not be within the 90 days for which members are paid, there are signs that the deadlock ed session dolefully predicted in some quarters is improbable. . Roads and Streets -' The end of the' city street squabble mav he in sifht. On Thursday the House finance committee held a public hearing on tne question, ana, aiter some astute parliamentary maneuver ing- tv both sides, voted to snve a favorable report to Senator Powell's SB 120 and an unfavorable decision on whether or not to follow the Sen ate's lead sn, without raising taxes, give the cities money from the High way Fund for work on streets not a part of the highway system. The latest road develonmexilt was ha introduction this week of companion bills (ISB 216 and no 377) calling for the estanusn ment of a commission to build toll road, financing them bv issuing- reve nue bonds to be paid off from tolls and roadside concessions. (When naid for, these super-highways would be made toll-free and come under mgn jway VCommissioB supervision and maintenance. Whether trucks should Jbe required to comply with lighter maximum weight limits will be tne subject of a public hearing in the Sen ate chamber' next Thursday after noon when the roads committee meets td-consider S3 183. . - " t'inety Nine Donors Gre Blood To Red Cross last Friday New High Beached In Blood Collection For This County Ninety nine pints of blood were col lected here last Friday for the use of the Red Cross blood program, it was reported by C. Edgar White, chairman of the county committee in charge of the bloodmobile visits. Mr. White stated that the collection last week set a new high in the amount of blood donated by this county. A total of 121 volunteers, 66 whites and 55 Negroes, registered at the unit headquarters as volunteer donors. The 22 individuals rejected, after an examination, were requested to volunteer on . the next visit of the bloodmobile. Mr. White and other members of the Red Cross committee expressed their thanks to the donors and all others who assisted in making this trip of the bloodmobile successful. "We really appreciate the growing interest in this program and are hopeful even more people will realize its value and volunteer as donors next time," Mr. White said. He added that the recruiting chair men for both the white and colored divisions did an excellent job in selling the program to individuals and secur ing them as volunteer donors. An interesting sidelight on the pro gram given by four individuals who were donors for the first time, they said, "we had not volunteered before because we were afraid the procedure would hurt, but it didn't hurt at all." Assisting the chairmen and the bloodmobile staff with the collection program last Friday were a number of local committees composed of Mrs. T. P. Brinn, chairman of the reception Committee, assisted by Mrs. J. T. Big gem, Mrs. Sidney Jessup; food com mittee, Mr. W. C. Cherry, chairman, Mrs. Julian White and Mrs. J.

Mathews, chairman of Per quimans PMA Committee, stated to day over 50 farms in the county have been declared ineligible for crop in surance under the 1951 Crop Insurance program as bad risks. The purpose of the program, he said, is to se cure a minimum of 22 units of insur ance composed of good farmers paying small premiums in order to protect those who may have a loss from un avoidable causes such as draught, flood, hail, wind, frost, excessive rain, hurricane, tornado, insect infestation and plant disease. He said that many good farmers were apparently failing to sign up in the insurance program because there had been some bad risks signed up in previous years. 'He also stated it would be the policy of the PMA Com mittee to eliminate any bad risks in line with other types of iwswirahse as certain bad risks ar eliminated by these commercial companies. He urg ed that good farmers of the county support this program now as it will be discontinued at the end of this year if enough units are not signed up to continue it. Up to Wednesday only 103 units had been signed up for participation in the program and unless new s'ign-ups can be secured before the deadline the farmers of Perquimans will lose this program. "We have a tremendous responsibili ty in Perquimans County in helping to develop this program in North Carolina," Mr. Mathews said, "as the program is on a trial basis." If it succeeds, he said, we will thereby help other counties in the state to get tile program and if it fails, we may thereby deny them an insurance pro gram. Many leading business firms and farmers ar endorsing this program, and farmers desiring further infor mation concerning the program are uged to apply at the PMA office in I Hertford.
