The Old Hickory Veterans agreed to leave the niatter of a -meeting place next year up to. the new execu tive committee, thus making it pos sible that the city hosecn will not l»e announced for ,several weeks. Besides the resolutions concerning Senator Watson's. charges that Amer ican soldiers were hanged in France without trial or court-martial, one ex pressing "the. earnest hope" that the ocnference on limitation of armaments would "tend towartT* a permanent peace," was adopted by these veterans who took a prominent part in break ing the HindenbuiK line. The annual reunion of the Old Hic kory Veterans is an important, bit of history for it is conceded to be the division that did most toward break ing the Hindenburg line by tin' whole United States and for that reason will always play an important part in hi. tor.v. It is regretted that none of the Martin County boys rouW atfcmo foi some of our very own played great parts during those few immortal day* some of them ad for life that we run into contact with daily. Others are sleeping beneath their na tive heath after leaving the ponpy covered fields of France where they slept for many months.

RIVER CLOGGED Willi I/EKHIS AS RESULT OF HIGH WATER Last week the bridge construction was held up for two days on account of derhis coming down with the high waters from above VV'illiamstoi uiid ■getting jammed against some piles and logs that were being, used used about the bridge. There was a plan about a liundred yards square covered with brush, sticks and even good sized logs along with the other derhis that high waters gather along the wa;. The only available way to remove the obstruction after all manner of prodding' had been tried, was to use great amounts of dynamite .aid blow it out,. j"ii/»is was administered Ifi Messrs. Halla'd and Youirt and most everybody in town witnessed _iin ex plosions. At first they only rsed i».V sticks of dynamite, at a shot, b\it the progress made was*so slow that th«>\ finally used 150 sticks at one tir.i". (t 'was very, fortunate that none of the spectators weie hurt for from ui e ex plosion a log, about *2 inches in diam eter and si xor eight feet long, fell about two hundred feet or so from the river and went through the top of the blacksmith yfjop and st'icl: up in the ground. One of the • black smiths usually stoo i in exactly th same jtyot that tl.e log struck but on this occasion he had gone out to see the explosion and decided te step things cleared up.shi dlloafetaoahrdle over in the carpenter's shed until it .cleared up. it took one whole dav to loosen the derbis and get it out sc that it .vou'd go on down the ri«er and hindered the bridge force to no small degree.

TtrfUCCO MARKET CLOHI'D \I-.XT I FRIDAY The- Williamston Tolm.vo Murket will be closed Friday, Moveri'kv tl, f!\ recognition of the third uimiverary of the signing of the Am ist'.ce that ended the World War •. . V • SVilliamston, Martin County North Carolina, Tuesday, November Bth, 1921 BETTER PROSPECTS FOR LOAN BANKS The following is a letter from Keua ro:;entativo 11. S. Want to Vol. J( Bryan Crime:,. It will be of great to rest tu those fanners contemplat ing getting a loan from—Uwr-t'inks. My Dear Colonel: Vour letter of a few days ago on this subject, was forwarded to Mi. Leaver, anl he did me the honor as n itvsponse to it, to call at my office and I have just had with him a very uleas ant and instructive chat. 1 must cur dense the information a sfollows: Because of the strong preso've on all the 12 banks, their Presidents were called together in Erec tions given that they Their applications to the quota of fund then available, by directing the loco l branches to hold back application." The resources of the banks were then less than $40,000,000. Thi sordev was obeyed by all of them except our bank at Columbia, which failed to obeervc the rule ami permitted' applications to go in far in excess of the available funds. Since then an issuance of 00 million dollars has been floated ,ani the Columbia bnnk is "doing business, at the old stand" with "II possible activity. There will be approximate ly f> milion dollars for lending in the Columbia district, of which North Carolina may expect, one million, two hundred, and fifty thousand anil this will be dished out, I ha\e reason to Tljese activities are intricate, trouble some anii slow. Not only must thi title be examined carefully, but « classification must be made with groat caw to ascertain whether the appli cant is eligible. For instance, from 40 to 60 per cent of . tln'iu represent men who ire not primarily nor prin cipally farmers, Lawyers, doctors anil meracnhts who run farm* as side is sues for, health, fun, speculation and other-secondary purposes, are not eli gible to approach to this bunk. A merchant has a little faua, and R> it behind in his mercantile business an" wants a loan on his farm to pay ot [his mercantile debts; he is not eli gible. A lawyer or doctor living b\ his practice, buys a'farm for specula tion, puts a tenant on it to keep dowi the weeds unti Ihe can sell for a prof it, wants a loan on the farm to hold it off the market until his profit gets fat enouKh to satisfy him-; lie is not eligible. These loans are not withii the scope of the benefits intended t' be given by this bank. After tfiis~conversation, I am sat isfied that every eligible application in my district will be reached durini the coin in gwinter, and that when [ I oral branches have been held up, tln-j will lie in a few months diiected move on. There was loaned in North Caro lina in May, $38,000; in June SHK,OOO; in July $240,000; in August, $3K7,- 000; in September $4(11,000; HI Or tol>er, $240,000. The suggestion that thi bank itu. ceased activities is erroneous. It will soon reach Pitt county, exact'y when I cannot tell, but to the farmers win. live by farming primarily and want to enlarge or improve their fans* and appliances, it is for the future in a larger measure than in the past.
