Agricultural Front A few weeks ago a Negro framer walked into the Hillsboro, N. C. branch of the Durham* Bany and 1 rust Comany, shoved an old card board box through the teller’s win dow and said dryly, “Give me $966 worth o War Bonds.” This farmer was B. C. Corbett, owner of a 10000 acre farm at Ce dar Grove, N. C., and the $966 in the old ox was raised by the farm ers in his community during the last three years by holding box suppers, and selling ice cream. They had planned to buy furnishings for the consolidated school which the county board has promised to build. But with wartime restrictions on con struction, the new school will have to wait for the duration. So the farmers decided to lend their money to Uncle Sam to help speed the day of victory. Mr. Corbett, who led the campaign for raising the money, bought $1,900 worth of Liberty Bonds during the first World War. He is a neighbor leader in the farm program and will speak for his group on the Blue Network's Farm and Home Hour, Wednesday, Sept. 2. Mr. Corbett wil^ tell his listeners what Negro farmers in his community are doing to help win the war. Two Negro 4-club members, a boy and a girl, will also appear on the Blue Network’s Farm and Home Hour Saturday, Sept. 5, to tell how Negro young people on the farm are helping to meet the Nations wartime food needs. Other participants on this program which is being presented in connec tion with the regular monthly 4-H clubesries are Miss Lizzie A. Jen kins, Negro district agent, and Mrs. Thelma Hewlett, Negro home de monstration agent of Hanover Coun ty, Va. The theme of the program will be “Negro Farm Families’ con tribution to Agriculture’s War Ef fort.” Rays of Rhythm In Down in Opelousas The Piney Woods School, all girl band, “The Swinging Rays of Rhythm,” has just been royally en tertained in old Opelousas. Wherev er these students of high school and Junior college play the people show er them with attention and enter tainment because they are school girls and represent an educational institution. Down in Opelousas they had the honor of dining where the Hon. Her bert Hoover and many Louisiana State dignitaries have been wined and dined—at “Didee’s Place”-— nationally known for its specialty— “Baked Chicken.” For more than forty years C. A. Lastrapes, known to two generations as “Didee,” has maintained a cafe on one of the main streets of the town. There has been times that the street in this block has been roped off, when some dignitary has been dining there—like the time when the highwater brought Hon. Herbert Hoover south on an official inspec tion trip. There is hardly a state official in Louisiana who has not had “Baked Chicken” at “Didee's Place.” The “Swinging Rays” left our citi zens happy and inspired over what our girls can do and journyed on to New Orleans.
