in employment best suited for
him. I recommend them to em

the search for a more economical
metal with which to construct his

expensive, workable, stable, and
which had exceptional electrical

In pure nickel, a material that to

Milk Consumption
Is Below Average
1
The average city resident in \
North Carolina consumes only
two-thirds as much fluid milk
products as does the average per
son in the United States, an ag;
ricultural economist for the North
Carolina Experiment Station dis- I
closes in a new bulletin publish
ed this week.
The bulletin, issued as No. 371
and titled "Consumption of Dairy j
Products in Urban North Caroli- 1
na," was prepared by Walter P.
Cotton, associate professor of ag
ricultural economics for the sta
tion. Cotton conducted a detailed
study of milk consumption a-,
mo'rg 1,023 urban families in the
State during August and Septem- ;
ber, 1948.
Cotton found that higher-in
come families (those making
$720 to $1440 per person yearly )(
consume from a third to a half"
more fresh milk than the State!
average. Colored families con- 1
sume iess dairy products than
white families, but this differen-1
ce tends to disappear among the!
higher-income groups.
Consumption of dairy products
runs about a third lower in the
eastern. area than in the rest of j
the State, although evaporated
milk and cheese consumption in!
that area is higher than average.
The Experiment Station econo
mist slso found that only about
the persons over 16 years- of
age' drink milk regularly.
Cotton concludes that whole!
milk consumption in the State |
might be increased 27 percent by >
raising the consumption of fam- 1
ilies with per capita incomes un
der $60 per month to the level of
those having per capita monthly j
incomes of $60 to $89. He also as

THE DENNIS is an economy house that Can
be expanded by finishing the second floui
room into a bedroom. An additional bedroom
can be added to the rear by replacing the
rear window with a door from the bedroom
hall. In either event, the combination kitchen
and dinett? is large enough to accommodate .
the expansion.
Plumbing is simplified by having the
laundry placed under the bathroom and the
kitchen, while the rectangular plan, with its
plain roof lines reduces costs of construction
to the very minimum.

serts that education of adults in
the health value and economy of
greater milk consumption so as to
f?ise the percentage of adults
