Firm Charged In Timber Suit Judge Leo Carr has issued an order in Wake Superior Court temporarily restraining three lumber dealers from cutting timber in Mark's Creek Town Highway (Continued from Page 1) of the fiscal year have already been obligated \o other projects, and those phases of the overall highway program financed by such funds will proceed as planned for the remainder of the fiscal year. Based on information received from the State Treasurer's Office, the High way Bond Program is the victim of prevailing bond market conditions, and the red light will stay on for new bond-financed construction so long as these conditions prevail. Each of the 14 Highway Commis sioners has worked for the past several years on developing highway projects to be constructed with funds from the $300 million bond issue of 1965. In spite of the planning and design work which has gone into these projects, the Commissioners are faced today with the reality that they cannot be con structed because the bonds cannot be sold to finance that construction. In order to get the green light, to get the bond program rolling again, it is apparent thaf one of at least two things must occur. There must be a change in the bond market and a return to the point where the State's Highway Bonds can be sold at the legal four per cent interest rate, or there must be legisla tive action taken to raise the ceiling under which the bonds can be sold so that they -can be sold at prevailing market levels. The later will require approval of the people, as well as enabling legislation. But until some change occurs in either the bond mar ket or the interest rate ceiling, the red light will remain on for the highway bond program. ship pending a hearing on charges that they U9ed "trickery" and "fraud" to obtain timber rights. The judge's action came after an 81-year-old Wake County woman filed a suit for $200,000 in damages against the lumber dealers. The suit was filed by Miss Pattie Lee of Marks Creek Township against Mr. and Mrs. Percy Lee Barker of Wake County, Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Coble of Wilson County and Willis W. Nash Co. of Franklin County. Miss Lee contends in the suit that she is "almost deaf, not alert and at times unable to understand business transactions." Miss Lee says in the suit that Barker paid her $2,300 for the timber on her land and then sold it to Coble for $18,000. Coble, according toJUiss Lee, then sold the timber to the Nash Company for $35,000. All three defendants "knew of the fraud," according to Miss Lee. She is seeking $100,000 in damages to com pensate for the timber and $100,000 v in "punitive damages.'" Hearing "s1 (Continued from Page 1) ... in the fall of 1968, attorneys for the Department (of Justice) received information to the effect that many classes in the defendent school district had been organized on a racially seg regated basis, with Negro teachers teaching all-Negro classes and white teachers teaching predominantly white classes." The affidavit tells of the FBI being asked to investigate and says that in the investigation agents "inter viewed white and Negro teachers and pupils assigned to he various schools in the district, as well as several other Negro citizens of Franklin County." Mr. Schwelb concludes in his of ficial statement: "...
