Godwin Trial Commences;
Brief Resume of State's
Testimony Up To Frida
The case of State vs. C. H. Godwin,
for embezzlement, etc. is by far the
most notorious case ever brought be
fore the court of Martin county un
less murder was involved. Both sides
are ably represented by counsel the
State by Solicitor Allsb looks, Judge
Stephen C. Bargaw and A. D. McLean
of Washington; Flank Spruill of
Rocky Mount; Dunning and Mo:e,l
and E. S. Peel. The defense by Judge
P. D. Winston; H. S. Ward and J. D
Grimes of Washington; Stubbs and
Stubbs and Critcher and Criteher.
The case was called Wednesday
morning and after consuming one and
a half houra, a much shorter time
than had been anticipated, a jury was
selected. The bill of indictment was
read by Solicitor Allsbrooks and the
State put Mr. C. B. Hassell up as its
first witness. Mr. Hassell stated tliat
he and Mr. Godwin were co-partners
in buying and selling stocks in rail
roads, oil companies and automobiles.
That they were equally interested in
profits and that each man was to fur
nish half of the capital and losses,
that their operations begun ni 1019
ar.d run up to August, 1920. He stat
ed that they borrowed money at Kin
aton, Robersonvillc and Everetts put
ting up either joint notes or his notes
endorsed by Godwin. That he him
self put up $9,()00.0() in cash. Thai
when some of the banks which luid
accomodated them called for payment
Godwin matte him a loan on this ac
count at The Peoples Dank of $4,000
That Godwin did not want it knowr.
and would not have his name on pa
per in the agreement. That in u
month of July the prices of their
holdings had so declined that they
would .lave to be sold unless they
put with their broker, J. Leon Wood,
$2,000.00 and he asked Godwin if he
wanted to continue and go further o:
throw it up. Godwin said "Yes, draw
a draft and 1 will pay it." The draft
was drawn and paid at the Peoples
Hunk. That later, in November of
1920, by virtue of further decline he
was again called for $C,000.00; that
he saw Godwin who instructed him to
send check for the $2,000 and h
would pay same. That the final loss
on the speculation was $21,000.00. Mr.
Hassell state dthat he had more t!ian
paid hi shalf. On corss examination
he said that the $9,000 cash furnish
ed belonged to Fowilen and Hassell,
of which he was bookkeeper and that
he handled the Company's money at
will. He i tated that they bought pea
nuts and dealt in fertilirers and that
he did not tell Fowden he was trad
ing with Godwin until the money wn
Roy T. Griffin testified that he drew
a check for Ed' Walston in the sum
of $844.00 to pay a series of notet
held by the Farmers and Merchant.-
Bank which was executed and secured
by deed of trust on land sold by Wal
eton to Ben Biggs and that the check
was delievered to C. H. Godwin t« 1
handed over to The Farmers and Mer
Ben Biggs on cross examination.
stated that he bought land from Ed
Walston and that Walston gave a
check to pay the notes held by the
Farmers and Merchants Bank. But
be found that thi check had
been charged to Walston and the Peo
ples Bank and the noixs had not been
taken up. He saw Godwin with Dr.
Biggs and Godwin told Dr. Biggs he
would look the matter up and attend
to it in a few days. Mr. Godwin did
pay to Dr. Biggs the sum of $299.00
leaving a balance of $600.00 still due
on his land.

John L. Kodifeicon te.stif.ed that he
was Assistant Cashier of The Peo
ples Bank, that the Ed Walston check
lay on the counter for three or four
weeks and was finally charged to Ed.
Wulston and the proceeds could not
be traced to any place except to God
win. In the matter of the C. B. Has
sell draft Mr. Rogerson stated it was
promptly pi.id out of the bank's mon
ey, then put in the cash drawer and
va.s counted as cash until Godwin left.
This draft was made in July, 1920 and
another $2,000 chock was also paid by
the bank and not charged to any ac
count except Godwin. That the SI,OOO
paid to Godwin by J. R. Tyre was
never placed to the credit of the bunk
and no sign of it could be found. He
testified that Godwin gave him a mem
orandum the night before he left say
ing to credit Tyre writh SI,OOO and
charge same to the expense account
of the bank, which meant that the
bank lost SI,OOO. Upon cross exam
ination by H. S. Ward Mr. Rogerson
stated that R. L Little of Grimesland
paid SBOO.OO on certain notes called
Talley notes on May 6th, lIJ2Ol I J2O and thei
same went to Godwin's credit and not
to Mr. Little's account until February
1921, after Godwin had left, which
meant that the bank lost the money.
In the mattre of t'.io Nitrate Agency
account the winess stated that all
items drawn on North Carolina peo
pie by the Nitrate Agency came to
this bank and thut in the early part
of 1920 checks and drafts in the sum
>s*" " ' - "S V
* "" -J**
of $7,367.65 for the credit of said
company in the bank were received
and some time thereafter placed to
th credit of the company. At the same
time however the same checks and
drfts were placed in fie cash drawer
and called cash to the said amount
of $7,367.66. Just before the bank
examiner came in June, 1920 Mr. God
win took those worthless papers out
of the cash box, put them in his pock
et and charged them to the Liberty
Bond account, still no bonds were
bought. Mr. Rogerson declared that
after the examiner left those saim
worthless papers were produced and
again placed in the cash drawer where
they remained until Godwin left. He
further stated that Godwin tried (o
get him to help make some arrange
ments whereby to get the papers out,
in order to help him. The amount
that went to the Liberty Bond account
was $7,260.00 and that going to God
win's personal account $108.47, and a
balance item of $9.18 going to the ex
change account. All of which was n
loss to the bank. Mr. Rogcrson's tes
timony stated that the baseball ac
count was a loss ,of $5,600.00 to thi
The examination of J. G. Staton be

was concluded at 11:80 Friday. Mr.
Staton stated that he was President
of the Peoples Bank, and gave the
namse of all directors, members of
the Finance Committee and othfiV of
ficers. That he never knew anything
about Godwin and C. B. Hassell's stock
deals until the last of December, 1920
when he was called into FowdenV
Drug store by L. T. Fowden and told
that Godwin and Hassell had been tra
ing and had lost heavily. He ther.
had Dunning see Godwin who made
flat denial of it. That he found after
Godwin had gone a draft for S2,OfW
and a check for $2,000; dated July and
November, respectively, each of which
was worthless and had been calllet)
cash by Godwin since the bank had
paid them on the gambling account of
Godwin and that The Peoples Bank
lost the entire $4,000 thereby. That
Godwin admitted to him on January
4th, 1921 that he hfd been gambling
an dthat he had ited to Dunning a
bout it because he did not have the
to tell him.

FORI) DEALERS OF DETROIT"
STAGE BIG PARADE
Detroit's 27 Ford dealers hit upon
a unique method of demonstrating in
a practice Iway to Detroit's public the
versatility and many City uses of the
Fordson tractor by staging a parade
The parade which was led by Miss
Mary I'ercola, a Ford employe*, driv
ing a pare white Fordson, ailing a
trailer containing the Ford band; start
ed from the Ford Motor Company's
plant in Highland Park and proceed
ed south the entire length of Wood
ward Avenue to Jeflerson, then to
Gratiot, Second avenue and Fort St.,
and was witnessed by thousands of
interested spectators. All along the
route the parade presented the aspect
of an industrial tractor show on
wheels, wtih the added advantage of
displaying the tractor and equipment
in- actual operation.
One interesting feature of the pa
rade was the fact that Miss Percola,
until within an hour or so of the time
of starting the parade, had never at
tempted to drive a Ford Hon tractor
and knew nothing whatever of the
mechanism. This was pointed out by
'Ford dealers as demonstrating the
ease with which the Fordson can be
handled. And the fact that the pave
ments were wet from Thursday morn
ing's continuous drlzxle did not hin
der the Fordsons in pulling their

Although the Fordson weighs less
than 8,000 pounds, one of them pull
ed behind It two trailers carrying a
net load of 28,000 pounds of gravel;
another hauled two trailers piled high
with lumber; and coupled to one Ford
son was a 10,000 popnd load of coal.
Although the Fordson comes from
the River Rouge Plant equipped for
farm duty, the subtsltutlon of rubber
treaded wheels converts it into an
laconomical power plant for either
traction or belt power. The contrac
tor may hal his various machinery and
equipment to the scene of operations

leveler or other equipment with the
At the present time, the River
Rouge plant is operating on a sche
dule of 200 Fordson tractors a day,
which is not sufficient to supply the
demand. The recent price cut of the
Fordson from |626 to 8396 brought
in a flood of orders resulting in speed
