WASHINGTON (Continued from page one) that Senators must be thirty years old. Rush D. Holt was less than t\venty-nine-and-a-half when he was elected last November. There are some conservative Senators of both parties who are strict constru ctionists of the Constitution, and the indications are that there may be some difficulty facing young Mr. Holt on his birthday when he attempts to take the oath of office and qualify as a full fledged Sena tor. If the Senate wants to throw him out on the technical ground that he wasn’t thirty years old when he was elected, they can do so, for another provision of the Constitution is that each House of Congress shall be the sole fudge of the qualifications and election of Its own members. The debate on Mr. Holt’s quali fications might afford an oppor tunity for some of the anti-Admin istration Senators to conduct a filli buster agains tsme of the Admin istration bills. That sort of debate is priviledged. It cannot be con trolled by any rules of the Senate. So if three or four long-winded senators undertook to stage a speech-making marathon nobody could stop them. There have been hints circulating on Capitol Hill that something of that sort is con templated. Aged Poultryman Is Leading Enthusiast J. L. Houk, 78 year old Burke County farmer, is keenly interested in the future expansion of his poul try flock. Despite his years, Mr. Houk is more enthusiastic about poultry than many younger farmers, report ed C. F. Parrish, extension poultry man at State College, after a recent visit to the Houk farm.

Dental Society 11 1S most gratifying to know that North Carolina is great ly interested and awake to the necessity of a mouth health pro gram, especially among the chil dren of our State. A few years back only the most alarming evi dence of disease invasion was over called to the attention of our government. In fact, those in mthority were more attentive to ;he problems of agriculture such is hog cholera, cattle tubercu losis, and tick fever. Even now lur farmers are ordered to de stroy the farrowed hogs and turn under crops, showing the chang ng viewpoints under different stresses. But miracles never cease, and he dawning of a new thought akes hold; today the health of he human animal is predomi nant. His bodily predisposition :o disease and deterioration is of so much concern to our State government that today North Carolina has on the statute books aws insuring the rehabilitation if diseased bodies and the proper ibservance of hygiene, and our lommonwealth is recognized as a nost enthusiastic exponent of aealth for its citizens. j-iit; muinerence iu ortu ueaiin s still more noticeable than its observance or correction. Teeth, n the days past, were considered i gift from the Creator, like the fingers and toes, and like these should give no more trouble. In fact the digital organs were more fortunate and, consequently, healthier because of being seen. (Pride is a driving monster.) Sometimes the fingers and toes same into contact with soap and water; not so the teeth. Hidden from public display, they chopped and ground the material to sus tain the body. With their duty done, the cleaning of the teeth was deferred to that more con venient time which never ap pears, and the mouth’s arch en emy, fermentation, commenced its destructive work. This, basically, with the at tending evidences, was the cause of the beginning of mouth hy giene and health as we know it today. Persistently and effec tually the sponsors of this health movement have labored for recog nition. Our statesmen had to be educated in the belief that child hood was the beginning of man hood and womanhood, and that their health had to be considered before that of cattle, swine, and horses. Cooperation with the ones seeking a mouth health pro gram for our children was a de mand not to be denied—a utili tarian as well as an altruistic ~ -—- =4 ! DR. PAUL JONES service. We are greatly indebted to those in our medical society and our dental society for this vision that seized and held them during the formative period of this movement which is now so well grounded and sponsored through our government. Often I have wondered if our intelli gent citizens, as well as our State government, fully realize the debt owing the two professions of medicine and dentistry in their sustained efforts through all these years to make our people health conscious as well as healthy. It is with much pride that I mention the present fulfillment of these aspirations in the opera tion of our mouth health pro gram. Through the Dental Divi sion of the State Board of Health Dr. Branch and his staff of den tists have done a noble and glori ous piece of work solely in the interest of the health of our people. They have emphasized the need of mouth care among our school children, and they have carried the story of healthy teeth in healthy mouths in a tell ing and most effective way, so much so that we in private prac tice can note the improvement in the mouths of our young school boy and girl patients. I am heartily in accord with the dentistry program as directed by Dr. Branch for North Caro lina, and should like to see the activities of this department en larged rather than any part of them delegated to inexperienced local units. I would like to see North Carolina the healthiest state in the Union and its people possess the best-treated teeth in the world. farm agent. Then he started hi: first year with a flock of 175 Rhodt Island Reds. At the end of the year he decid ed that the quality of his bird: must be improved, so he kept onl) his best hens for breeding purposes and purchased a number of pure bred males. He followed this pro decure for several years. In 1928 the eggs from his flocl brought premium prices when sole to a commercial hatchery in tht county. From 1928 to 1934 h< kept in his flock an average of 135 birds which produced every year ar average of 151.4 eggs each. During this period he spent ar average of $2.33 a year in feeding each bird.

Maud Thomas, Glasgow, Kentucky Better Housing Day June 15th. Farm representatives of the Fed eral Housing Administration are attempting to make Better Hous ing Day, June 15, one of import ance in rural communities. Al though the farmers are busy in the fields at this season of the year, the women’s divisions of many locali ties are sponsoring programs for this occasion. National Better Housing Day is being recognized throughout the country. Well over 1,000 model homes will be constructed follow ing ground-breaking exercises .to be held on that day. These model homes, in most cases, will be sold and financed through the Mutual Mortgage Insurance Plan of the Federal Housing Administration. In rural communities where model houses are not to be erected, other celebrations fvill be held in recognition of the Better Housing program. Some towns will be vis ited by demonstration trucks and exhibits held. Demonstration trucks are tour ing the states of Oregon, Idaho and Washington to assist in creating interest in farm programs of the Federal Housing Administration. The trucks are sponsored by power companies and building and plumbing supply concerns, and the equipment carried in the cars is demonstrated at each place. One or more types of water systems are exhibited. Home lighting plants, plumbing fixtures and a model of a septic tank are generally carried. Similar tours are being organized in other sections of the country to enable the residents' of rural dis tricts to see the sort of improve ments which may be made to their property.
