BIG CROWD HERE
HIS BLIND DRIVE
People Here Are Agreed
That His Trick Is a
Very Good One
Nemar, the mystery man from Au
stralia, attracted hundreds of people
here last Wednesday afternoon when
he drove a new Ford V-8 through the
streets while blindfolded. The attrac
tion started the town talking, some
declaring he could see through the
blindfold, and others declaring he
could not see through the half-dollars,
strips of adhesive tape, ahd cloth. And
while there is obliged to be some
trick to it, it is agreed that the trick
was a good one.
Starting from the Watts Theatre,
Nemar first drove to the top of the
river hill and turned his car around.
Returning, he stopped at the Virginia
Electric and Power Company office,
went in and found a carton of bulbs
and gave them to Mrs. C. R. Mob
ley. From there he went to Barn
hill Brothers, found a prize and de
livered it to Mrs. O. S. Anderson.
Finding a price at C. O. Moore's,
Nemar delivered it to John R. Rog
erson. He then went to the store of
B. F. Perry, found a prize and gave
it to Miss Mollie Smith wick.
Driving rapidly in traffic, he circled
the block and traveled ihack down
Main Street to Margolis Brothers
■tore, where he found another prize.
He gave that to Miss Thelma Har
retl. After turning around he drove
to Clark's Dug Store and found a
prize, which he gave to Miss Bland.
His last stop was at Davia Pharmacy,
where he delivered a box of candy to
Mr*. Bill Glover.
Before starting his drive he gave a
100-pound ice ticket to Mrs. A. L.
Madame Nemar WM ill and could
not be here for the drive. The mys
tery man brought along a new asist
ant who admitted she did not know
how the man handled the car. It was
a shocking revelation to Charlie James
and Joe Gray Corey, occupants in the
car trailing the blindfolded driver,
when they learned that the assistant,
also a passenger in their car, had noth
ing to do with the driving of the
front car. Mr. Corey turned half way
around in his seat several times in an
effort to help Nemar make the first
one or two corners, but after that he
just rode ill at ease with Mr. James,
who centered his efforts on trying to
keep up with the driver of the front

IN ARREARS LIST
Martin County Has Paid
About One-half Amount
Due the State Fund
Less than half of the total of $4,-
451,661 assessed on the 15-cent State
wide ad valorem tax for schools for
1932, has been paid into tha State
treasury so far, according to report
made public this week by Treasurer
Charles M. Johnson. And collections
for the period are more than one-half
million dollars less than they were
for the receding period.
Five counties, Hertford, Tyrrell,
Burke, Chatham, and Davidson, have 1
paid nothing on 1932 taxes collected
under the 15-cent State school sup
port provision. The report also
states that several counties have failed
to turn over money collected, and
that in those cases pressure will be
brought to have the counties pay.
Martin County has paid just about
one-half the amount assessed against
her for the support of the schools, lo
cal authorities stating that turn-overa
have been made regularly and are up
to date. Of the $23,731 supposed to
have been raised under the 15-cent
provision, this county has paid sll,-
613.95 into the State treasury.
Large Tobacco Crop Is
Forecasted in Georgia
A recent survey of the sise of the
tobacco crop in parts of Georgia thia
year indicates one of the largest acre
agea ever planted there to the crop.
The Vaidosta (Ca.) Times says
f there are new barns being erected
V and old ones are being repaired in
many instances. Despite the acreage
increase, the Times quotes fanners as
saying they expect better prices for
their crop than those received last
Tobacco transplanting is complete
Hi this section, and the crop ia off to
an early start, reports indicating that
the anticipated acreage is now • real
ity. Blue mold resulted in much
damage to beds and attacked plants
ia a few fields, but the obstacle was
overcome, and now a full acreage is
growing. The size of the crop ia now
up to the seasons.

DAYS IN COUNTY
Makes Commencement Ad
dresses In Two Martin
Schools Last Week
By FRANCIS D. WINSTON
Last week it was my happy fortune
to renew memories of my first visits
to Martin County; and to let pass in
glad review the thousands of faces
I have known and the scores of places
I have visited.
When my father, Patrick Henry
Winston, commenced practicing law
in 1846, Martin was one of the "from
home" counties he practiced in.
Around our family fireside the peo
ple of Martin were daily recalled and
their friendahip highly prized.
My first visit to the grand old coun
ty was after the election in 1874, when
I attended a great celebration in Sher
rods Grove, where the Democrats
were rejoicing over the election of
Major Jesse Yeates to Congress and
carrying the county Democratic. East
ern North Carolina was there by the
thousands. Great speeches, magnifi
cent dinner, fighting Democrats, fur
nished a program I have never seen
equalled. I went there by way of
Taylor's—now called Coke's—Ferry.
My second visit to the county was
in June, 187S, when, as a reporter for
the ,AFbemarle Times, in
Windsor, 1 attended and reported the
Democratic county convention held in
Williamston which nominated Mr. Jo
seph Waldo as a candidate for the ap
Then the names Goose Nest, Griffins
and Bear Grass were planted in my
Judge Waldo retired as a candidate
and the County Executive Committee
named Rev. Cushing Biggs Hassell in
his place: Under his stirring elo
quence and greatly beloved life and
character our party victory was com
plete. The Albemarle Times was the
Democratic party organ in this north
Mr. Hassell was a powerful f»~'tor
in that great convention, reorganizing
our laws and ridding North Carolina
of the "carpetbaggers and scalawags."
In March, 1881, I Was sworn in as
a lawyer in Martin County court, pre
sided over by Justices Waldo, Biggs,
and Peele. I was presented to the
court by my old college mate, W. Z.
Morton. My friend of a life time,
Harry Stubbs, was solicitor of that
court for years. The old court stood
near Tom Cook's home.
I followed my father and practiced
in the Martin courts.
On Tuesday night of last week I
the commencement speaker at
the Oak City school. It was mighty
near the same "old Goose Nest spirit"
to me. As the guest of Mr. and Mrs.
Ben Worsley, I was stirred by an
other chain of happy memories.
I attended Horner and Graves Mil
itary Academy at Oxford, 1871-73. A
fellow-student there was Nathan Mayo
Worsley, of Edgecombe. He married
and settled in Martin, where in lived
in good repute and in high respect
and esteem of all.
In passing the old "Kep" Brown
place, 1 recalled his two half-brothers,
George and Abner Brown. They, too,
were my schoolmate* at Henderson.
I hold them in loving memory. Their
"Jacky" Stone, was clerk
in Robertson's Drug Store in Chapel
Hill. Dr. Robertson married his
daughter. He and I for many an hour
have dwelled on Martin County and
The "Jim" Sherrod place in Hamil
ton also recalls that Jack Sherrod was
my Horner School much-loved com
panion and life-long friend. As I
passed through Hamilton my mind
wandered toward Palmyra, and the
names of the Williams, the Everetts,
Eborns, Spruills, Hymans, and Cokes,
and others of that solid and useful
citizenship, than which the state had
Another of my dearest friends lived
in Hamilton. His earlier years were
spent in Williamston. He is now an
invalid and lives in Henderson. Than
Charles G. Lamb I never knew a
purer and sweeter-spirited man. I
went with him to Scotland Neck,
where he married my Hyman cousin.
I have no name in my memory that
touches sweeter chords than hit.
Permit me to pay tribute to Prof.
If. M. Ainsley and his excellent fac-

NEW FARM ACT
DEBT ON FARMS
Relief Bill Will Aid 400,000
Farmers Owing More
Than Billion Dollars
Title eleven of the new farm relief
bill contains provisions that will aid
the nearly 400,000 farmers who have
loans aggregating more than one bil
lion dollars with the twelve Federal
land banks of the United States.
According to information supplied
the Fxtension Servke of State Col
lege by the chairman of the Federal
Farm Board, Henry Morgenthau, Jr.,]
in 60 days after the approval of the 1
Act by President Roosevelt, the in
terest rate on all these mortgages
will be reduced to 4 1-2 per cent. Bor
rowers are now paying between 5 and
6 percent. The new rate of interest
must remain in force for five years.
Then too, the act provides that
paymenti on the principal of the
loans shall not be required for a
period of five years if the mortgage
is otherwise kept in good standing.
Heretofore, the landbank mortgages
have required payment* annually or
semi-annually on the principal in ad
dition on the unpaid balance. The
banks are given authority to post
pone payments on the principal for
the next five years and also to post
pone payments on the interest if the
farmer is unable to meet such pay
Then, these farmers who do not
have (heir loans with the land banks
but have secured them from private
parties and organizations, may have|
their mortgages taken over by the
land banks and share in the same
benefits as those men who have bor
rowed from the land banks originally.
This will apply where the place is in I
danger of being lost through fore
closure. In this case the person
holding the mortgage must help.
A farmer may also apply for a first
mortgage from the land bank if his
loan ii due and payable and he can
not meet the payment. He may also
redeem land that has been sold and
secure funda for putting the place on
■ sound basis again. County farm
agents are instructed to farmers

COST OF COUNTY
$1.31 PER CAPITA
Martin Commissioners Get
Less Than Any Others
In North Carolina
The cost of government in Martin
County for the fiscal year 1931-32 was
approximately |30,700, or 01.31 for
each man, woman, and child, accord
ing to a report released a few days
ago by the University of North Car
olina Extension Division in connec
tion with the cost of government in
It cost each man, woman, and child
in the .county 2.7 cents to pay the
commissioners and offset their ex
penses ip conducting the affairs of the
county. It cost far'niore than that
amount for the individual to visit the
polls and vote for the commissioners.
Nearly 10 cents per capita was. spent
to maintain the county courthouse and
jail during the period. Accounting
costs, including books anil other office
supplies, amounted to a fraction over
10 cents for each person. Tax-listing
costs amounted to exactly 17 cents
per capita, the amount reflecting ex
pensive scroll books and abstracts
more than it does the actual money
paid the list-takers.
The largest cost was tliot for courts
and law enforcement. The operation
of the courts and enforcement of the
laws cost 92 1-2 cents per capita dur
ing the period
To wperate their governments dur
ing the same period, Beaufort Coun
ty spent $36,462.06; Pitt spent $56,-
91(1.97; an.l Bertie $27,653.08. The
court costs in these three counties
were from 22 to 34 cents below court
costs in this cou.ifty Martin paid its
county commissioners less and han
dled its accounting cheaper than did
any of the neighboring counties. The
hoard of county commissioners func
tioned at a smaller cost than any-other
board in the state.
