TH IO. 12 Brunswick Or Went Over "I County Went Over Top Last Wednesday With "E" Bond ?ales And Saturday Reports From The State Show Only Three Counties Did That SMALL BUYERS MADE GOOD THIS TIME Series Other Than "E" Did Not Reac!ti Quota but "E" Sales Went High Enough To Reach Brunt wick's Overall Quota Up to Sa.urday, state officials in charge of the 5th War Bond Drive repotted that only three counties in North Carolina had reached their quotas in the sale of "E" Bonds. These three counties were not identified at the time but Chairman R. F. Plaxco and assistant Chairman Hobson Kirby are jubilant in their knowledge that Brunswick was one of the three. There is a possibility that Brunswick may have been the first county in the State to reach its full quo a. of "E" Bonds. Reports received on Thursday ol last week indicated that the county was five housand dollars over the "E" Bond quota. This Thursday report would naturally indicate that the county went over on Wednesday. All reports are not in but it can be definitely stated that the county has reached its full quota with something to spare. Bonds other than "E" did not sell to the quota but the "E" bonds went several thousand dollars over making the overall sales in excess of the quota. Prince O Brien of the Waccamaw Bank and Trust Company one of the most active workers in the drive, states positively that the county went well over the top. He has reports to difinitely show that much and is confident that late leports will swell the total sales into a fine showing over the quota. Like Messrs. Kirby and Plaxco, Mr. O'Brien is very much gratified at the "E' bond sales. He says that the sales of these bonds are conclusive prooi that Brunswick is backing the boys at the front. Mrs. J. P.

I. -MtNTZ Board Member Still Question It Apparently Will Be up To Representative To Decide The question of who will be members of the next board of education now seems to be up to the person elected Representative in the next General Assembly. In the orginal count of votes M. B. | Chinnis of North West township was apparently nominated , by a very small majority. Later, irregularities Were charged at the Shallottc voting precinct and at a recount by the board of elections the throwing out of votes that were allegedly miscounted at this precinct resulted in R. I. Phelps having a lead of about the same number of votes that was originally credited to Mr. Chinnis. Inasmuch as the legislature usually names members of the board of education, this naming being in accord with the vote received in the primary, the whole matter of saying who shall be appointed is being left to that body. It is understood that the registrars and judge of the Shallotte election precinct have all resigned and that new members will shortly be appointed.
