For the four days last' k the market sold 400,000 pounds ,t an average of $29.00 for the week. On Monday the sales amuonted to 80,000 pounds and averaged $32.80. The sales yesterday were not so ^ heavy but the price was better, the average being $33.85. The ware- : housemen say they have never seen | better sales or more happy farmers, in fact every one is happy for it looks like that corner has been passed. We may be mistaken but we al ways thought it was a good time to sell when prices were good, and we know prices are good, better than' they have been since 1919?and many ; say they are higher today than at that time, for the quality is not so good as then. And we believe Rox- i boro is the best place to sell, be- \ cause here you can come in with J your load, sell, do your shopping and get back home the same day; and further, no market, either eastern, middle or old belt, is averaging | higher and you certainly will lose nothing by selling on your "Home Market." Bring it to Roxboro! ALLENSVILLE P.T.A.

JUDGE BROGDEN SPEAKS fO THE KIWAWS CLUB Speaks On Supreme Court And Its Fundamentals, De fending: The Court System Associate Justice Willis J. Brog den of Durham and Raleigh, for nine years a member of the Su preme Court of North Carolina, spoke to the Kiwanis Club and it's guests on Monday night in the reg ular meeting of the club. Judge j Brogden picked up the historical 1 thread in 1776 and traced the devel opment of the Supreme Court from that time until the organization of the court as it now stands under the constitution of 1868. He defend ed, where so many people have be rated, the court system in our state and nation. Judge Brogden point- | ed out that there was no more di- i rect way for a man to get Justice I than to go into the courts for an alleged wrong and seek retribution At the hands of the courts "that stand guard at his fireside at night, that surround his liberty and his property." His remarks, sprinkled with his original wit and humor throughout, were listened to with Close attention and were enjoyed by his hearers. In concluding his remarks Judge Brogden urged the Kiwanians and others who were present, to base their opinions of statecraft arid affairs of govern ment, not on hearsay or prejudice, but on profound thought and study. The ladies of the Methodist church served an excellent chicken dinner in the basement of the church. Guests for the evening were: Jus tice Brogden, B. T. Bumbardner, Mr. Davis of Durham, Dr. A. P.

" ' I NEWNRJMRS TAKE OVER DUTIES OE HUGH JOHNSON Retiring Administrator And Donald Rich berg Shake Hands in Friendly Style JOHNSON DENIES ANY PERSONAL FRICTION Washington, Oct. 2.?In an at mosphere marked by the first hand shake in weeks between Donald R. Richberk, unofficial chief of NRA, and Hugh S. Johnson, its retiring administrator, the new governors of the Blue Eagle today began their task of reshaping Its control over industry. The industrial recovery board, newly-named by the President, was closeted in executive session four hours with Richberg, director of the policy shaping committee. The con ference ended without action. Then the-entire group paid their respects to Johnson, builder of the industrial code structure. It was the first meeting?and a smiling one? between Richberg and his old chief since their differences over reor gani^ion methods, generally cred ited with hastening Johnson's with drawal. -No Quarrel, "We had a friendly little chat over future NRA policies," Johnson said later. "We've had no disagree ment and all that talk about it is the bunk." u S. clay Williams, chairman of the new board, spoke for it at the end of a day's session. "We have been outlining for our selves Just what our job is," he said "We took no action. These discus sions will continue for several days." Richberg declined to discuss the meeting, emphasizing that "the board will speak for itself." "Chiseling," as Johnson expressed it, has long been recognized a ma jor threat to Blue Eagle, codes. The board was reported to be fully aware of this problem and to plan a_ painstaking ^survey of existing compliance machinery with an eye to a general tightening up. What such action might involve in the way of code amendments was ' not immediately evident. In any event, the recovery governors were determined on an "evolutionary" approach to their work . As To Salaries. Even the question of salaries for board members remained to be set tled. Johnson drew only $6,000 an nually until President Roosevelt personally boosted his pay in, mid summer to $15,000.
