Covering The WATER FllOJSl By AYCOCK BROWN FOR THE INFORM. TION of Mr. Utley or the Twin City Daily Times, writer who wrote&der the caption "Luther Hamilton Named Special Judge By Hoey," the following para graph: "He has taken such an import ant part in county politics in past years that Aycock Brown, editor of The Beaufort News sometime ago dubbed him as the "Kingfish" a term that provoked the ire of the leading Morehead Citizen." Luther Hamilton was first called "Kingfish" of Car teret by Wade Lucas, ace political writer of Raleigh who does a weekly column on state capital activities each week for The Charlotte Obser ver. He was called "Kingfish" of Carteret after this columnist had told Lucas that Hamilton was exactly that here in this coastal county. And insofar as provoking the judge thats a lot of bosh. Being called "Kingfish" pleased Luther Hamilton. He might not admit it, but it did nevertheless. The stories which pro voked Hamilton more than anything else this columnist ever wrote was the enlargement of a statement he had made 'not for publication' in Raleigh about 'worms with sharp (Continued on page four) Carteret Committee Is Appointed To Take Care of Buying George W.

The following story relative to th nvprnment having potatoes from farmers was released in Ral eigh this week in a special dispatch to The Beaufort News: The Federal Surplus Commodities Corporation is seekki.ig to boast Irish potato prices in Eastern North Caro lina this season by removing surplus spuds from a crop more than twice as big as in 1U36. Surplus potatoes will be purchased in an endeavor to stimulate the mar ket and assure the growers a fair re ( Continued on page eight) District Home Agent t v w ' V f , v , IW ' h :J'" -." 1 1 In -i-ir -t III - ' 1-1- , ,, flh f, , 1--- .J. a n I l! mi I m i H.iT M TimrrillJ 1 iLjia Smoked and Purple and purple colored gladiolus from the Haynes quality Gladiolus farm along with many other colors of flow er of the same species were used today in decorating the speakers stand of The Casino on Atlantic Beach where hundreds of representatives of Home De monstration and 4-H Clubs of the 12th District gathered in Annual convention. The un usual colored gladiolus created much favorable comment from those attending the meeting. To produce pink, and yellow and commonplace colors of gladio lus is no hard job even for the amateur gardner but to deve lop smoke colored and purple glads is another thing. That is why Hayne's quality gladiolus decorating the rostrum of At lantic Beach Casino today creat ed so much favorable comment from the hundreds of delegates gathered there. S. E. Hayne of Hayne Quality Gladiolus Farm is a professional glad farmer. . but he smiled broadly as he dis played the smokes and purples.

It was als the rendezvous for 4-H club members from the six counties comprising the 12th District. Perfect Gulf Stream weather made everything ideal for the very successful gathering which was still in progress as we cro to Dress today. High spots of the meeting were scheduled to be speeches by State Senator E. V. Webb, of Kinston, Miss Ruth Currant, state home agent, Raleigh, Mrs. Hubert Boney, of Teachey, president of the N. C. Fed eration of Home Demonstration Clubs and Mrs. A. R. Blow, district president of Vanceboro. It was hoped that Representative Graham A. Barden of the Third Con gressional District would be present and deliver the main aaaress oi (Continued on page five) His Salary Will Be Approximately $22.4$ per Day Pleasant news to many Carteret cit izens, when they read their Wednes day momnig papers was the announcement that Governor Hoey had ap pointed Luther-Hamilton of Wo'reh ead" City, ( K native of Atlantic) to 'the important post of Special Superior Court Judge. Supporters of Lu ther Hamilton, who is a politician of note, will be pleased to learn the news. On the other side of the fence politically from Mr. Hamilton the news will also be received pleasantly because they know that it will keep this important leader of Carteret from the county when his political followers need him mostly around election time. With Luther Hamilton gone the Carteret Republicans might say "We have things sewed up now." But there is another Democratic faction which might keep voters on the Democratic side of the fence. Judge Hamilton goes on the Superior Court payroll July 1. His salary will be $8,000 per year or about twice as much per day as the women on WPA projects receive here at the present time for their semi-monthly payroll periods.

It is a two or three hour job for the fastest counter, probably long er. But that is the number of tomatoes an average profession al wrapper will wrap and pack in one day. The professional wrapper will continue from ear ly morning until he or she has wrapped 300 lugs containing an average of 118 tomatoes each. Sometimes the days work will not be finished until after sun set. An average wrapper wilt wrap and pack a lug in two Minutes or 30 per hour, day in and day out. They receive four cents per lug or about $12 per day. It may sound like easy money, but its a job which takes much practice to perfect and reach the professional stage.
