Bra Martins WilhHM Verdict on Friday The rains held back for a while Friday afternoon and during the in terval the lowly Braves defeated the seoond-place Martins by a 9-4 ver dict, in the second of only two games played last wee*. Preacher Johnnie Goff returned to the Brave line-up and proceeded to spark the heretofore hapless Braves to their third win of the sea son against a half-dozen defeats, as he hustled and hollered new life in to the team, and wielded a big bat offensively. A couple of "rookie pitchers" took the starting turns on the mound for the two teams and both pitched cred itably in their first performances. Puff Boyle, on the hill for the las ers was touched for 10 hits and tour free passes, while Bud Crockett al lowed a dozen safeties and tour walks, but managed to keep his hits pretty well scattered as the losers could count only four times. The Braves tallied four times in the last of the third on three hits, two walks and an error, as they bat ted around. In the last of the sixth the winners scored five runs, as L Peele walked and was forced at sec ond, the Martin infield contributed errors on each of the next three hit ters, Hurley doubled, Crockett hit a sacrifice fly and Joe Griffin sin gled, to again bat around. The Martins used a hit by Lilley, a walk to Hoyle, and singles by Pitt man and Liverman for one run in Hie fourth. Rallying desperately in file first of the seventh the losers were able to cross the plate three times as Lilley got his third single, Boyle and Pittman each singled. Flip Peele got his second hit of the sea son and then proceeded to swipe see arid and third, after Liverman's sac rifice. and the Braves kicked in with one error. Frank Lilley paced the losers with three hits in four times at bat, while Pittman and Liverman each had two lor three. Flip Pecle contributed the fielding gem of the day with his cir cus catch of L. Peele's hit in the fourth, the most surprised person on the field being Flip himself. Bernard Hurley was the high man for the winners as he had a pair of ringles and a double for four trips, while Pappy Julian Harrell, Parson Goff and Bud Crockett each had two fcr three, to account for most of the Braves' hits? f^ich team started with eight men and played the game with only nine.

Still out in front is that demon deacon Dillon Cobb, who brought his average over from the previous week .being out of town on the only day the Martins played last week. Roger Critcher and Haywood Wynne are in a tie for the seoond position, each batting .500 or an average of one safe hit every two times at bat so far this season. John Hardy is fourth with a lusty .476, which seems to be a pretty fair average for a pitcher. Sew And Save Winner From a cotton dotted swim bed spread, Jane Waddell, 16, of Mem phis, Tenn., made this evening dress. Miss Wadell won The Mem phis Press-Scimitar's Sew and Save contest, and was sent to Ne\ York with her all-cotton, self-mar' wardrobe, where she won first r tional oriie in the Junior standar pattern class in competition % about 30,000 contestants.

John Hardy, the Martin main stay, and Willie Lassiter, of the Dodgers, each have a percentage of .667, with the former having twice as many wins and losses as the lat ter Oswald Stalls, the Cardinal work horse, has pitched eight games, win ning five, to rank next, and Sum Ze mon, With one and one, completes the list of hurlers with an average at or above the .500 mark.

Clark, Jr., assistant farm agent Bud Crockett, the Braves' utility man ,and Captain Jack Manning of the Dodgers are both deadlocked for fifth place, each with 10 hits for 22 times at bat, or a percentage of .455. This week's Big Ten is composed not of players who have been to bat at least a certain number of times, as heretofore selected, but of players who are in there almost every day and who really have the highest av erages.

Our Last Delivery Will Be Made On Friday, August 21 Edenton Laundry Employment Unit Lists Wartime Plan Directions for putting into opera tion the wartime plan of the United States Employment Service, as di rected by the War Manpower Com mission and Director John J. Corson, of the service, have recently been received in the Williamston employ ment office, from Mrs. Gertrude K. Clinton, driector for North Carolina, Manager C. W. Bazemore announces. The wartime plan of service for all offices in the nation provides that four essential activities are to be performed by the local office staffs, including (1) serving essential war industries, (2) farm placement pro gram. (S) occupational inventory, and (4) claims taking activities. Essential activities, those which the local offices may now serve, are defined as (1) establishments hold ing war contracts, (2) establishments holding subcontracts for war con tractors, (3) establishments provid ing equipment and supplies for war contractors or their subcontractors, (4) all phases of agriculture, and (5) essential civilian activities, such as public utilities, transportation, hos pitals, etc. Under this plan, a priority is now established in labor, as well as in supplies and equipment, and local employment offices are directed to provide essential workers for em ployers on the basis of their priority, in cases in which such workers are needed by two employers. The war effort must be served first and the more important of war industries must be supplied with workers, be fore less important industries can be served The U. S. employment service, in this State, as in all other states, is Laying Texas-Illinois Pipeline Workers are shown welding sections of 24-inch pipe on the important 560-mile oil pipeline from Longview, Tex., to NorHa City, 111.

(I strictly speaking, a war labor sup ply agency. The farm placement program is given an important position, because the "food for freedom" campaign is definitely a wartime activity. The occupational inventory at present, has to do primarily with the Selective Service registrants. The employment service is directed to sort out all registration cards of those with essential and needed skills and suggest that they be plac ed in essential industries.

Minister Declares Pleudw for Prem'rvation of High American Tradition And Sanctity of Home By REV. J. M. PERRY Many of us have been brought up on the wise old proverb, "The Way of transgressors is hard," and we be lieve it. We also believe the way of the criminal is hard. The grim rea 1 i ties of gallows, electric chairs, and gas chambers are too gruesome and too terrible to be waved aside as if they were some Theological platitude of long past Bible days. TVey are real, they are here, they are snap ping out human lives. They speak a language more horrible than elo quent .and are more deterent than death and Hell themselves. Let who-1 ever thinks of commiting crime de-1 sist and turn from his wicked re solve. Law breakers will find swift and cold justice measured out by courts, that will not be moved by snob ap-1 peals, nor swayed by weeping alibis and sentimental emotionalism Am erica is in war to the hilt, and any one, rich or poor, black or white, so depraved and disloyal as to take ad vantage of the serious national sit uation by committing unlawful acts against men, women and children will bring upon himself heavy pen alties without mercy. It may be a long prison term at hard labor, or even the death sentence without-the usual bickering and delay The temper of the American peo ple is in no mood to tolerate steel ing and dastardly acts of violence against the peace and the common good. Criminal acta against women and children, of every color, will be met by death to the guilty criminal, whoever and of whatever national ity he may be. Let all citizens back home support the war effort without stint, be de cent. law abiding individuals, re spect the rights, protect the lives and property of others, preserve the high American traditions, and defend, even unto death the virtue and the sanctity of the American home.
