Center ! Os
In every community, whether it be
a large or small one, there is a crying
need for a place to gather for recre
ational entertainment and other ac
tivities, it is only through complete
cooperation of individuals that such a
feat can be accomplished. With the
cooperation and hard work now exist
ing in the Center Hill Home Demon
stration Club of Chowan County, this
hard and rough road has at last be
come a passable one. For years they
have needed a building to provide a
place for meetings and activities for
young people, as well as adults.
The Center Hill Cub has undertak
en the responsibility of seeing that
a Community Center ibe established.
Their long-cherished dreams and
hopes have at last become a reality.
For their 19G1 project, the organiza
tion has secured a building and mem
bers, assisted by others in the com
munity, are now busy as beavers re
modeling and painting the structure.
They are justly proud of their ac
They not only painted the interior
of the building, but have installed an
electric stove and other necessary
equipment for serving meals. It was
first used on Wednesday of this week
when they had a covered dish sup
per at the annual joint meeting of
club women and their husbands, with
a program on "Better Farming For
Better Living." 1 ' ' - ?
The Community Center will also be
used by the Boy Scout Troop, which
the Center Hill Chib is sponsoring.
"We feel that our club is making
progress like it never has, before," said
Mrs. J. Elton Jordan, Secretary of the
Club. We want every dub member

been able to meet the levels set for it
by the 1949 General Assembly, accord
ing to the State Board of Public Wel
The Board has studied figures on
the financial assistance program,
which showed .that the average re
cipient of an old age assistance pay
ment in this state receives $22.21 a
month in comparison to the $24 set
by the Legislature two, years ago as
the average grant. In addition, the
average payment per child for aid to
dependent children is now only $15.75
per month, despite the $18 minimum
level set by the 1949 legislators.
Dr. Ellen Winston, Commissioner of
Public Welfare, told the State Board
that the main reason for the inability
of the state to reach and maintain
the $24 and $18 minimum levels
monthly was the increase in the num
ber of persons seeking such assistance.
More than 3,000 additional recipients
were added to each program, old age
assistance and aid to dependent chil
dren, during the calendar year 1950.
"Our inability to reach the minimum
levels set by the 1949 General Assem
bly is doubly regrettable," Dr. Winston
told the board, "when the greatly-increased
cost of living is taken into ac
count. At a time when some upward
adjustments to meet these increased
costs should be made, we find that we
are not even able to grant the amounts
which were considered to be absolutely
necessary by the General Assembly
two years ago."
Some counties, she pointed out, pay
less than 80 of the minimum amount
needed by recipients, while only 24
counties are able to pay 100 of the
nedds of all their old age assistance
recipients. North Carolina continues
to rank near the bottom among the
States in size of average grants for
both old age assistance and aid to de

care, it provides our food and our income. Handled without thought
for the future, it withers and grows poor . . . depriving us of our

curity by discovering new ways of soil conservation.
One of the most important points in soil conservation is the use of
proper fertilizer for "your good earth."
