More Soybeans And
Cotton Less Grains
North Carolina farmers in
tend to plant more soybeans anc
cotton, about the same acreage
of peanuts but less tobacco and
feed grains than last year.
These findings are based on an
Intentions Survey conducted
about March 1 by the N.C. Crop
Reporting Service. Acreage
plans, to a large degree, renect
changes in the farm program
' for 1972.
Soybeans are expected to
, Increase 11 per cent to 1,175,000
acres despite the uncertainty of
an adequate supply of good
seed. High soybean prices and
changes in the farm program
which allow soybeans to be
planted to protect the feed grain
base are major factors behind
this increase.
N.C. farmers intend to plant
205,000 acres of cotton this
spring - a 8 per cent increase
from a year ago. In January
fanners reported intentions to
hold cotton acreage ' to last
year's level.
Flue-cured tobacco acreage is
i expected to drop 1 per cent.
4 intentions for barley are;up 6
per cent. Peanut acreage at

Notice To Perquimans Parents
The guidance office of

School wishes to make known to
parents and students in
Perquimans County the several
Demonstration School
Programs to be held at Western

summer. . The following
programs will be in action
beginning June 12: Programs

Education, Reading Im

Enrichment Program In
These programs are enrich
ment programs and do not
carry credit. These programs
encompass students in grades 4

probably just another of our
popular misconceptions. Many
of us tend to think that older
mothers are easily fatigued and
not able to express love to
children as easily a younger
mothers. A classic study of
child rearing does not support
this belief.
Sears, Maccoby, and Levin
classified younger mothers as
those age 27 or less who have a
child in the first grade. These
mothers will have two children
by age 21 or 22. Older mothers in
this case are those who start
having children at age 22 or 23
The authors found that the
older mothers were somewhat
warmer or more affectionate
toward all their children than
the younger mothers. For the
first child there was very little
difference in the two groups of
mothers. However, for all
children past the first the older
mothers were more af
fectionate. This fact was true
regardless of social class, sex of
the child, or time between
The common assumption that
younger mothers have more
energy, moreflexibility , and thus
more affection for children is
not supported by this study.
The authors mention
two explanations for
