Raleigh, Feb. 16 With a tota!
of 89,623 births registered for
the past year North Carolina has
broken its own record for the
highest birth rate in the Union
established in 1920. At the same
time a new low level in the death
rate for the state is established
with a total registration of 29,964
deaths.. These figures are pre
liminary, and are subject to
slight alterations as delayed cer
tificates for 1921 are filed with
the State Board of Health.
Such delayed returns, however,
cannot be sufficient to materially
affect either the birth or death
In 1920 the birth rate in the
state was 31.8 per thousand pop
ulation as compared with the
rate of 23.7 for the registration
area of the country. .The death
rate was 12.6 per thousand popu
lation for the state as against
13.1 for the registration.
in lvzi tne Dirth rate goes up
and the death rate is lowered.
On the preliminary figures avail
able the birtn rate icr tne year
is 33.1, and the death rate is 11.4
Figures for comparison with the
remainder of the country will not
be made available by the United
states Bureau of the Census un
til late in the present year. In
this connection, however, it is of
interest to note that the state of
New York announces a death
rate ol tor the past vear, a
new low level for that state but
one higher than for North Caro
lina. The city of Chicago an.
nounces a death rate of 11 for
1921, and the health commission
er of that city states that probab
ly this is the lowest rate possible
The net increase in the total
population of the state for the
past year, that is the excess of
births over deaths, is 59,659, or a
rate of increase of 2.3 per cent.
If this rate of increase is main
tained the population of the state
will have passed the three million
mark well ahead of the next
While the birth rate is a matter
of pride, yet it is the death rate
that health officials watch most
closely, and the constantly de
clining death rate in this state is
the cause of genuine gratification.
In terms of lives saved the
lowering of the death rate for
1921 as against the previous year
means that approximately 3,292
more Tar Heels are today alive
and serving their respective com-1
munities than would have been
if the 1920 rate had prevailed.
Compared with 1914, when the
death rate was 18.8, it means
that approximately 19,656 more
citizens are alive today, a popu
lation comparable with that of a
number of the large towns of the
Year by year since accurate
statistics have been kept the
birth rate in the state has been
steadily climbing upward, and
at the same time the death rate
has been even more markedly
declining. The figures eloquent
ly attest the fact that North
Carolina is a good place in, which
to be born and to live, an that
its people as a whole are constant
ly growing healthier and happier.

vocation of Raleigh and has
visited the Church on many 'oc
casions. Other clergymen as
sisting in the service will be
Archdeacon Morrison Bethea, of
Raleigh, Rev. Reuben Meredith,
rector of Scotland Neck, Rev.
Chas. Westman, rector of Wel
don, Rev. Francis Joyner, of
Littleton, and Rev. Lewis N.
he history of All Saints'
Church dates back to 1902 when
Rev. Francis Joyner, then Arch
deacon held the first service over
Roanoke Pharmacy and later in
the old school building now used
by the band. The following year
a school building was erected on
Hamilton Street and a day school
was begun under the direction of
the mission. Sunday School was
held in this building on Sunday
afternoons and once a month
the Church services. This ar
rangement continued until the
year after the Central School was
built and the Church school was
discontinued. Rev. H. H. Phelps,
of Weldon, took charge of the
mission and in 1905 the congre
gation formally applied for ad
mission aa an organized mission
and were receivedjas such by the
Convention under the name of
Zion Church. Occasionally ser
vices were held until Mr. Arthur
W.Taylor, took charge of the
work as Cathechist, under the
direction of the Archdeacon, in
the7 fall of 1911. In 1914 he was
ordained to the diaconate and
continued his work until the
latter part of that year. July 1st
1916, Rev. Henry C. Smith, of
Charlotte, assumed charge of the
work and served as - priest-in-charge
until September 1916. In
November of the same year
work was begun on the new
Church building and on Jan. 14,
1917 the corner stone was laid,
Bishop Cheshire officiating. April
1st 1917 Rev. Lewis N. Taylor
became priest-ln charge. At the
Convention held in Wilson the
following month' the mission was
received as an organized parish.
The first Sunday in May services
were held in the new building.
In April 1920 a rectory was com
pleted. The last report sent to
the Diocesan secretary showed
that the communicant list now
members 217 and one hundred

In Home Garden
The home garden can help
raise the standard oi public
health by increasing the amount
of green leafy vegetables in the
diet, according to the N. C.
Agricultural Extension Service,
which advocates an increase of
home gardens this year.
Vegetables have taken on ad
ditional importance through the
recent discovery of vitamines,
unknown a few years ago. Their
presence in fresh vegetables has
emphasized the need of a more
varied diet if health is to be
maintained in adults, and growth
promoted in children.
A recent circular, number 122,
issued by the Agricultural Ex
tension Service at Raleigh, says
that deficiency diseases often re
suit from starvation for one or
another of the three essential
vitamines, and it is necessary
for the good of man that the
diet contain all three of these:
"Dr. Goldberger, of the U. S.
Public Health Service, has done
notable work in the study of the
diet to pellagra in the South. He
has called attention to the fact
that the diet of the pellagrin
consists essentially of degermi
nated cereal grains, starch, sugar,
sweet potatoes, and fat pork, a
very small amount of green leafy
vegetables being consumed, and
practically no milk. He has
changed the food of the inmates
of institutions where pellagra
was serious, and found both that
a proper diet leads to the eradi
cation of the disease and that
the liberal use of leafy vegeta
bles and milk prevents the occur
rences of it."
ficers of the Church School are
Mr. T. W. Mullen, Supt and Mr.
H. W. Atkinson, secretary.

Friday evening Mr. Norwood's
grade invited the teachers and
pupils from the other rooms to
hear an interesting debate got
ten up entirely by six members
of his class, and each person
showed they had given their
subject a great deal of thought.
The subject was "Resolved
that the night school is more im

other forms of entertainment."
Those who debated on the af
firmative side were: Cleveland
Dickens, Lelia Cashwell, and
Those on the negative were:
Josephine! Murry, Nora Kate

The visitors voted by ballot
and when the ballots were count

Gross Income Explained
Numerous inquiries have been
received regarding the proper
interpretation of section 223 of
the Revenue Act of 192L which
provides that each individual
whose gross income for 1921 was
$5,000 or over shall file a return
regardless of his or her net in
Gross income means statutory
gross income, denned by the
Revenue Act to include "gains,
profits and income, derived from
salaries, wages, or compensation
for personal service ... of what
ever kind and in whatever form
paid, or from professions, voca
tions, trades, business, commerce
or sales or dealings in property.

of or interest in such property:
also from interest, rent divi
dends, securities or the transac
tion of any business carried on for
gain or profit or gains or profits
and income derived from any
Gross income does not neces
sarily mean gross receipts. A
merchant for instance, in com
puting statutory gross income,
should deduct therefrom the
cost of goods sold. For example,
a merchant may have gross re
ceipts amounting to $10,000, but
the cost of goods sold amounts
to $7,000. He has no other in
come. The statutory gross in
come would be $3,000. In case
the other deductions allowed him
for business expenses, taxes,
interest bad debts, etc., amount
to $2,500, his net income, would
be $500. No return of income
