Farm Bureau Executive Vice-JPresi-dent,
R. Flake Shaw of Greensboro,
called on all peanut producers today
to put tWs yer' croP into the loan
program and "not sell on the open
market at this time. . ..
Shaw said the Farm Bureau Peanut
Committee has reported ; that com
plaints from a number of counties in
dicate farmers are upse over receiv
ing 1? per pound below . the support
price for this year's crop. ' '
- "Peanut cleaners tare apparently at
tempting to buy the first peanuts
coming to. market right at the, loan
rate, which is lc below the support
price," he said.
Shaw pointed out, "if farmers con
tinue to deal with speculators, they
will lose about $20 a ton on their
peanuts, which they 'could have made
had they used the loan program."
He said the cleaner's price is about
the net price the farmer would re
ceive after deductions for storage and
inspection fees if the peanuts were
put in the loan.
"There is a strong feeling among
peanut growers that cleaners" should
pay the support price or better in
view of the supply and demand situa
tion," he added.
Shaw pointed out that there are
about 1,500,000 less bags of Virginia
Type peanuts available thjs season.
The Farm Bureau Peanut Commit
tee " has conferred :, with growers
throughout eastern ' Carolina, and
strongly recommend tihat they avail
themselves of the loan program pro
vided through the Growers Peanut
Cooperative, which has warehouses li
censed throughout the peanut belt
readv to make government loans.
Shaw said farmers could not lose in
such a transaction, "because they can
borrow as much on. their peanuts as
the cleaners are now paying and have
a chance to get back dividends if the
neanuts are sold at a profit?' '
- Members of the Farm Bureau Pea
nut Committee who made the inves
tigation were R. V. Knight, Chair
man, of Tarboro; Thomas J. Pearsall,
of Battleboro; and C. Gordan Mad

Food Handlers School
Termed Huge Success
The three-day sanitation school for
foodhandlers came to a close in Eliza
beth City Thursday and was consid
ered a great success. Restaurant,
lunchroom, fountain, institutional em
ployees and others having interest In
food sanitation attended this school
The total attendance for the three-
day session was 428. 3h addition to
each county in the four county Health
District being represented there were
three visitors from Beaufort and one
from Dare-Currituck Counties. .
The three-day program consisted of
informative lectures concerning the
various aspects of food sanitation and
food service which were delivered' by
authorities on these subjects. In ad
dition to lectures and demonstrations,
several impressive films dealing with
methods, relative to good food hand
ling procedures were shown. ; ;
One interesting demonstration in
cluded ,the growing of bacteria from a
human hair, finger tips, money, and
a sneeze in a food media at body
temperature. In so" doing, the food
handlers could actually see how bac
teria multiply in food and how poor
food handling can effect the public's
health. ''
The food handler was shown how
food, drink and utensils can be con
taminated with bacteria and then
spread disease through failure to ob
serve . proper sanitation practices.
Correct methods of washing, rinsing,
sanitizing and storage of eating-and
drinking utensils was stressed, to
gether with ' the proper handling of
sanitary paper service, safe prac
tices in serving food and personal hy
giene. It was pointed out that in
many places construction and equip
ment mas' be of the best, yet the
operating procedures may be health
endangering. .
Health Department officials ex
pressed their - gratification with the
interest shown by the large number
attending. Such fine cooperation is
a definite indication that the opera
tors sincerely , have the . welfare of
their customers t heart and are con
tinuously striving to provide the pub
lic with better eating places. The im
provement in the food handling estab
lishments in the Albemarle is re
markable. . Such progressive steps as
this, together with approaching their
operational procedures from an edu
cational standpoint by . attending a
Food Handlers school should be ap
preciated "by' ; the public. ' "Besides,
cleanliness' rings the bell with the res
taurant patron and keeps the bell on
the cash register ringing, too.

That's what some folks think, but
we know better. , Pumpkin is for
year-round eatig oirt of the locker
o freezer,-for Jack-o-lanterns, and
some few for pies. Pies are dessert
and pumpkin is a breakfast lunch and
dinner dish. So-o-o-o don't limit its
use to pies.
(Wash that big yellow cornfield
pumpkin, cut it in strips easy size to
peel. Peel and cut in small pieces.
Put in kettle with little or no water
(start it to cook slowly and stir it so
it will not burn) add one cup of
sorghum to each gallon of raw pump
kin. Cook to the consistency you
like. Chill. ; Put in frozen food con
tainers. Leave about half inch head;
space. Place in your freezer the way
your freezer book says or take to the
locker plant for freezing to be stored
in your locker there or to take back
home for storage
Later: : Tfiaw the pumpkin in its
container in the refrigerator or on the
kitchen table. Grease a skillet, dump
the pumpkin in it heat it thoroughly
or cook it 'down" more if-you like.
Eat it for breakfast with sausage or
crisp bacon, for lunch or dinner as
another vegetable, &.'- v'V
If you have the imagination I think
you have; youll be adding some Or?
ange and lemon juice and nuts to -th
thawed pumpkin and making good
sandwich filling for .whole wheat
bread but this kind of filling and
spiced pies are "doctored" pumpMnr
so flavored up that you don't know
what you are eating. . That's all
right, but don't miss the plain sorghum-cooked

Every 15 Minutes
Farmhouse Burns
Every 15 minutes a farm some
where in the . United , States, burns
down. Will yours, be next? ,
Last year alone, farm fires were
responsible for the loss of about $122
000,000 and the death of over 3,500
. farm, people. . ;, ', --w' .:;','.
Fires on the farm also cause a large
loss of farm animals and poultry, val
uable foods, clothing, building ma
terials and equipment-; What can be
done to reduce these startling . fig
ures? President Truman urges that every
man,, woman and child in the United
States contribute to the nation-wide
effort to strengthen the country $y
accepting a personal responsibility in
the campaign to save life and proper
ty by preventing destructive fires.
The President has proclaimed Octo
ber. 5 . through 11 as National Fire
.Prevention. Week. "'-''" 'Hlv' .
Secretary of Agriculture Charles F.
Brannan,' says that fire prevention is
the responsibility of each and every
i- ' viJ J in our Ktttlon. By constant

t If you are one ot wiose people
who suffer from tired or aching legs,
you'd better see your doctor, for there
certainly is a cause for it It may be
that your shoes lo not fit properly,
or your posture is bad, or the arch
es of your feet have fallen.
There is one very common cause
for tired or aching legs, viz., varicose
veins. Now the arteries come out
from the heart and .carry oxygen
and nourishment to every part, of the
body. They have no valves. "
. ' The veins gather the blood that has
given up its oxygen and picked up
carbon' dioxide conveying it back to
the heart Their, walls are much
thinner than those of the arteries, and
they are , furnished with valves to
prevent the blood from flowing back
ward, and to keep it moving steadily
onward toward the lungs 5to be re-
oxygenated and then on to the heart
where it will resume its journey again
through the arteries to every part of
the body. ',-.
JSome people are born with very
poor - veins. This condition is fre
quently hereditary. tWhen veins are
abnormally thin , they easily . beeovne
stretched and engorged with blood.
Thus some valves an? destroyed and
there is nothing to prevent stasis ex
cepting, the i force of gravity which
causes the blood- to fall back into
smaller branches of the veins. .,
' The stagnation and engorgement of
the Veins, by the slowly moving blood,
'destroy the .tissues gradually instead
of properly nourishing them. IWe
call such veins varicose." " 1
Just as a iperson is better off with
out a diseased tooth so he would fare
better without his varicose veins. Such
veins are useless, '- . ,
How does the blood get back to
the heart if the veins are too crip
pled to perform their functions?
Nature has provided a double set
of veins in the legs. The ones that
we have been talking about are the
superficial or surface, veins. There,
is a deep set between the muscles
of the legs, i The contraction of the
muscles squeezing against these veins
keep the blood moving in the right
direction so they do not . become
stretched and varicose.
These varicose veins are. larger and
tortuous. They cause aching in the
legs after standing a short time.
Usually the ankles swell toward even
ings, but go down during the night.

A badly varicosed vein is not only

method for effecting1 a cure is by
