Ship More Than Four Million Pounds Of Scrap From County Continued Collection Of Scrap Iron Urged Complete Reports Front The Schools Not Yet Available Possible That Marginal Iron And Other Materials Will Be Junked for War Complete reports from the cam paign eonducted by the county schools are not yet available, but of ficial reports coming from salvage dealers clearly indicate that Martin County has, since Pearl Harbor, gone over the top and set the pace in the collection of scrap iron, steel and metals. It is reliably estimated that dealers have handled since last De cember 7th more than four million pounds of scrap materials, or about 154 pounds per person. The salvage dealers point out that these figures include collections handled by the various schools. Asked about the school collections yesterday, W. K. Parker, owner-op erator to the Williamston Parts and Metal Company, explained that he had the figures tor sales made by several of the schools, but they were not inclusive since individual deliv eries were made direct to his yard with credit going to designated schools. Collections have been moved from the schools at Oak City, Williams ton, Hamilton, Gold Point, Bear Grass and most of the scrap at Rob ersonville has been hauled, sorted and shipped to the blast furnaces. It was also stated that the material gathered by several colored schools had already been moved and ship ped The collections in all the schools will be cleared within the next week or ten days. Approximately 162,000 pounds of scrap iron, steel and metal were ship ped from the county last week, Mr. Parker stating that most of that poundage came from the several schools in the county. Equally that much will be shipped this week and the early part of next, he added. "The war is still going on, and the collection of scrap iron and metals must go on, too," War Production Board officials pointed out. When every available piece of scrap is ga thered up and used and there is still JoKflifv* ^rjQiwsi ma art mam CHAIRMAN In commending the school children of the county for their cooperation in the collection of scrap iron for the war effort, T. J. Spivey, chairman of the coun ty salvage committee, points out that there is still a great need for more scrap, and urged the chil dren and others to keep up the good work. Frozen Overalls, overall jackets, dungar ees, work shirts, pants, breeched, and one-piece work suits made of cot ton fabrics can be sold at no higher prices now than those prevailing last March. need for more, it is quite likely that marginal machines will be junked. By marginal machines is meant those machines that are still serviceable but are not in operation. It is also possible that some machines now in operation in those industries far re moved from the war effort might be junked before this war is brought to an end. Just as soon as all the scrap can be moved, the weights will be checked along with the individual receipts issued and the campaign will be reviewed by schools and by individual leaders. Before that is done, Salvage Chair man V. J. Spivey states without res ervation that the canvass was a marked success, that much credit is due to the little school folks and to those who cooperated in the task. Mr. Spivey, conscious of the contin ued need for more scrap, is urging everyone to keep the collection mov ing^ QUAKER OATS ?% 11c POSTUM ar 25c MOTHER'S SALAD COLONIAI.

K. Parker and his workers in collecting salvage materials for the war were recently recogniied when ranking War Production Board representatives presented the Williamston Parts and Metal Company the special merit award, the first of its kind to be awarded in the county. During last month, the company ship ped tons of scrap from the yard or enough to make 485 tons of new steel which, in turn, will make 430 75 mm cannon, or 75 3-inch anti-aircraft guns, of 8,400 3-inch shells, or 8.600 50mm air plane machine guns, or 1,750 500 pound bombs for Tokyo. More than four million pounds of scrap iron have been shipped from the county since Pearl Harbor. Included in the picture are War Production Board rep resentatives Taylor and Zim merman, Mr. Parker and several of his workers. Large Force Needed To Keep Metals Moving Factories Ever try breaking automobiles and nachines to pieces and sorting out he various parts? Well, it is one >ig job, but one that must be done o keep the blast furnaces of the ountry burning and the war effort n high gear. Unable to get a complete set of nachines for handling the job, W C. Parker, manager of the William- j ton Parts and Metal Company looks o hand labor to handle most of the 1 vork at his yard here. While most I >f the metal is cut down to proper izes with torches, a great deal of nanual labor is used up swinging1 xes and sledge hammers. Most of he wood fastened to the scrap iron ! s burned away. Cast iron is placed ' nto a car by itself, steel goes into 1 nother pile, tin into another, and ther types of metal into still oth-' Went Distributors Have Iii? Business Roberson's Slaughter Mouse, local >ackers and distributors of meats, fnjoyed the largest business over a >eriod of one week, October 19-24, n the history of the organization ac cording to a statement issued yes erday by the proprietor, Mr. D. M. toberson. A total of 99,393 pounds of beef md meats of all descriptions were old by the local packing house and hrough its Raleigh branch. No salt ir lard are included in these figures, n addition to the above business arge shipments of hogs and cattle vere shipped by cars to other mar kets. Local consumers are fortunate in laving this business located here or local retail meat distributors are ilmost totally dependent upon this irganization for their supplies. The ?xtensive buying of the government ?f all meat and beef supplies hroughout the country makes it lext to impossible for the large >ackers to supply the local trade. er types of metal into still other piles. At the present time, the company is employing a dozen men, A. E. Lew I is, assistant manager, Sidney Lewis, Bill and Wiley Bullock. Arthur Lee, John Parker, Jim Scott, Sylvester Scott, Geo. Rogers, James Finch, Willis Smith and James Mobley. There are very few days hut what some of the men aren't busy loading 1 the scrap into cars while the others I are tearing it up and sorting it ac I cording to grades and types. The company was just recently i presented a merit award, recognizing the cooperative effort it had made ! in advancing the war effort. Government Will Control Manpower The\ lives of millions of Americans which have undergone change since before the war will be further al-1 tered, to some perhaps drastically, in the months to come. For control of manpower by. the government ap pears inevitable. Already Minnesota has come to grips with the problem. There, Governor Stassen has order ed non-e: ntial industries?and the state to reduce by 20 per cent the number of male employees so as to make available more farm labor. What form nationwide manpower control should take is still a much disputed matter in Washington cir cles. President Roosevelt favors vol untary control, but if this method fails to produce results, he adds, "we shall have to have new legislation." It is one of the questions that will bear watching for it may mean that John Smtih, a clerk in your home town, will be turning out war wea pons for Uncle Sam's fighting forces next year. Some idea of what man power means in these days of global warfare is indicated in the estimates of military men who figure that it takes ten men behind the lines to supply fully each man in uniform NOTICE TO CREDITORS In the District Court of the United States for the Eastern District of North Carolina.
