At Meeting Here
W. L. Turner and Mias Mary

Outlook meeting on Wednesday,

farmers' could expect the same
kind of prices for produce in 1956
and possibly 1957 that WieV receiv
ed during the current year. He
also stated that things should turn
a little more favorable in 1958.
The following is a prediction for

tion, and eggs down, the prices for
eggs in the next six months are
favorable, and broilers with' prices
down somewhat Beef cattle will
remain steady. . With hogs,' the
number slaughtered 'increased by
10 to 12 per cent, prices should rise
for top hogs in the last six months1
of 1956. ' In soybeans, record sup
ply but the prediction is that prices
will strengthen some after harvest,
so if there is a possibility of stor
ing these beans this should be con.
sidered. .. Cotton ' will.: be about
'steady,' with 1955 or down some

early potatoes and green vege
tables T-r prices will probably be
higher in J956 than in 1955.
: wThis. is the :. commodity outlook
for the coming year, as predicted
by the economists that study the
production and consumption and
base their predictions along with
this study and .the past trends of
the market. It might be a good
idea to base your farm enterprise
so as to try to have in 1966 those
products that look most favorable
for 1956. "

Unknown Cases Of
The unknown cases of tubercu
losis, even more than the known
cases, reveal the seriousness of TB
as a public health problem in North
This view was expressed by Dr.
William A. Smith, Chief of the
Tuberculosis Control Section of the
State Board of Health.
"People who have tuberculosis
without knowing it present the
most serious threat," according to
Dr. Smith. "It js estimated that
in the United States there are 150,
000 active unknown cases, and we
can logically assume that North
Carolina has its proportionate
Dr. Smith pointed out that 2,013
people were reported to the N. C.
State Board of Health last year for
the Qirst time as having tubercu
losis, and added to the reservoir of
known cases out of which spread
of the disease is possible. He em
phasized that this figure -does not
represent, all cases, as many peo
people who have tuberculosis do not
seek medicfel kdlyic '4id! ne- are
not cjifignosed. J ; ; ' ' '
"159 of the newly reported cas
es . last year were active," Dr.
Smith said and pointed out that
this represented an increase of 109
in the same category over last
In discussing the threat of the
person with tuberculosis who does
not know it, Dr. Smith emphasized
that the person who knows that he
has tuberculosis can be isolated to
prevent the spread of the disease.
"If the case is found early enough,"
Dr. Smith said, "it can be treated
"Such is not the case with un
known tuberculosis," he said. "Tu
berculosis will remain a problem
Land a threat until all unknown cas
es are found and put under treat
He emphasized that 2,013 peo
ple were reported as having tuber
culosis for the first time to the
State Board of Health in 1954, but
cautioned that this does not repre
sent the total number of people in
the state who have the disease.
"North Carolina logically has its
share of the 150,000 unknown cas
es of tuberculosis, in the United
tSates," he said.
Dr. Smith urged the support of
every citizen in finding unknown
tuberculosis. He said they could
help by supporting the casefinding
activities of their local health de
partment and getting a chest X-ray
every year. ' : Y' ':' ' ' .
In concluding the discussion, Dr.
Smith referred to the trend of de
tecting more cases of tuberculosis
in the older age groups. Once con
sidered a disease of youth and
young . adults,, tuberculosis now
makes its greatest impact in the
age group over 45. -r

The political picture for 1956
began shaping up last week when
Adlai Stevenson announced he will
again seek the Democratic nomi
nation for the Presidency. Since
then Estes Kefauver has indicated
that he will "also seek the office.
Averell Harriman, it is reported, is
a likely candidate but thus far he
has kept his intention under wraps.
The Republicans, awaiting a sec
ond term decision from President
Eisenhower, have sent up a few
trial balloons for several prominent
members of the party, but Chief
Justice Warren and Richard Nixon
appear as the main contestants in
the event President Eisenhower re
tires. The results of the Geneva Con
ference were given consideration at
a meeting .e'f the .Security Council
held at the President's office in
Gettysburg, iPa.,. -Tuesdayj. .after '
which,, some of the findings were j
djscu'ssed at a Cabinet session at;
tended by the President. Some
changes in U. S.. attitude on for-1
eign policy is predicted following
Russian refusal to agree to a so
lution to European problems.
Winter weather covered most of
the U. S. last week-end. Snow
storms were reported over most of
the northern half of the nation,
while chilly winds swept deep into
the south. A violent storm of hur
ricane force struck a radar station
off Cape Cod, Mass., badly dam
