The intruder there left a pair of prison shoes on the door steps, and while officers be lieve they were left ther by Cham bless they have not definitely con nected him with that case Sheriff C. B. Roebuck, arresting Chamblee just as he started walking on the riv er bridge, is investigating both cases further, and the evidence already uncovered would seem to indicate that Chamblee is facing another term on the roads. According to reports coming from Ahoskie, citizens there had promis ed Chamblee a hot time if he ever returned to prowl around their homes. Hears Nothing More From Missing Son "We haven't heard no definite lews since he was reported missing ollowing the sinking of the U. S. S. bruiser Quincy last August," Mr. Dan Hot-buck, of near Hamilton, said ,-esterday when asked if there was tny news?of his son. Young Roebuck's shipmate, a boy ay the name of Focht, wired Mr. Roebuck a short time ago. stating :hat they were good friends and ivorked in adjoining rooms on the ship. But Focht explained that he did not know what became of his friend, that the attack was so sudden and the confusion so great that he hard ly knew what or how it all happen ed. Plan Another Big Scrap Harvest In The County Soon (Continued from page one) ?and for the sake of the hundreds of Martin County lads on the far flung^ battle fronts of the world to day, not to mention the millions of other lads who are also deserving every consideration it is humanly possible for us to advance on the home front. The government does not wish to employ compulsory tactics in order to get every pound of .scrap iron, but it can be expected to take some ac tion in those cases where reason able cooperation is withheld. It is understood that the government au thorities have already sent warning letters to several owners who have been slow to move their scrap into the fight. Peanut Market Sags Under Heavy Sales The Past Few Days ? (Continued from page one) just as long as it is possible to get men to work. Unloading operations went forward late last night, and some farmers, anxious to deliver their crops, brought their own labor to assist the delivery work Whether the market will regain the quarter of a cent loss or hold strong at seven cents-is problemati cal It is fairly certain, however, that there is a strong demand for peanut products and that even with a large crop there'll hardly be enough of the goobers to supply all of the trade. The fury and dissatisfaction over the peanut oil market are not so ram pant as was the case a few days ago. The little fellows with one, two. three and occasionally a dozen bags are doing most of the complaining while those growing fifty to a hun dred or more bags are beginning to make deliveries with some degree of satisfaction. Most farmers are find ing that they are not having to sell as many peanuts for oil as they once thought they would. However, in some few cases where the farmers over-estimated their acreages, the oil deliveries are running higher than was first expected by the grow ers. Finding some delivery points glut ted, individual farmers were heard to say this morning that they plan ned to store their crops for a while. Deliveries to the government houses are expected to increase gradually. e Income Net income, including Govern ment payments, of farm operators in 1942, is now forecast at about $9, 785,000,000, an increase of 45 per cent over the total for 1941. HERE'S HOW Here's the way your new 1943 auto license tab will look when attached to the rear 1942 license plate of the car. Motorists must retain both front and rear li censes for 1942. The tab certifies they have renewed their license and must be affixed by January 1, 1943. Outlook In Solomon Islands Much Better After Fierce Battle (Continued from page one) sweeping successes in North Africa, the Allies are now entering what may be a major fight in Tunisia. It was first reported that the Axis were withdrawing from that area and go ing to safer ground on the continent. Later reports state that the Germans are moving in in fairly large num bers and have already engaged the Allied forces in minor skirmishes. Rommel's forces continue their back ward march after a rapid fashion toward Tripoli, and the Allies are making every effort to trap part of tin* beleaguered columns. As a whole the African situation looks encour aging, but some fighting is to be ex pected as the Allies push toward Tunis and Bizerte. In Russia the plight of the Ger mans is approaching the pathetic. They are still plugging at the Rus sians, but captured Germans around Stalingrad were found to be still wearing summer underwear snatch ed from the peasants. The Russians have scored successes with counter attacks in the Caucasus and are slow ly pushing the invaders back at Stalingrad. There is some talk of a counter Russian attack in the Lenin grad area, one report stating that the Russians had regained one import ant point in that area. In New Guinea, combined Aus tralian and American forces led by General MacArthur are beating the Japs at their own game in land fight ing and are gradually, closing .in on the important Jap base at Buna. Livestock Sale At State Prison Farm ??? Raleigh ? Farmers in eastern North Carolina will be given a chance to pick up good working mules and horses as well as dairy cattle at the forthcoming sale at Caledonia Prison Farm near Til lery in Halifax County, Tuesday, November 24th. Prison Director Oscar Pitts say the sale will start promptly at 11 o'clock in the morning and will be handled through the State Division of Purchase and Contract. Offend for sale are 30 good Hoi stein milk cows, one registered Hol stein bull. 7 good llolstein heifers and 10 good Holstrin calves. Working stock offered for sale will consist of 30 good farm mules and 7 work horses. Pitts said the sale of the working animals was directly in line with a policy to sell off all extra mules and horses at the state farm. During the past years more and more work has been done with tractors, which has meant the gradual reduction of work animals from almost 300 to about 50. The sale will be a public auction, all animals sold to the highest bid der. The animals may be inspected at the farm prior to the sale. | ? //?* Sergeant l.onis White, II. S. Army, Now It's Sergeant Louis White, U. S. Army, now, friends, both white and colored, were humbly informed by the sergeant when he took advan tage of a short leave to visit the town last week-end. Better known as "Lightning," the sergeant explained he annexed his stripes through hard work, and add ed that he was getting along all right in the Army. He was anxious to get home for a little home-cooking around Mrs. Grace Swain's kitchen at the hotel, even though he admit ted that Uncle Sam amply provided for him and all the othefs. "Lightning" is a changed man, too. He used to take his "toddies" by the tumblerful. Now, he just sips a spoonful or two. The former hotel bellhop was one of the first Martin County colored men to volunteer, and early next month he will have been in the service two years. ? Rationing System For Liquor Salet Proposed According to information TSCStved here this morning, alcoholic bever age control authorities are in a dis trict meeting at Kinston today to dis cuss a proposed plan for rationing li quors Just how the authorities plan to ration the fluid could not be team ed. Selling more than they could get, the ABC stores in this county have reduced their selling hours. Opening it 9 o'clock in the morning, the stores ire cloeing at 5 p. m.. effectii if Monday, November 16. There was i bit of weeping and moaning at the closed doors of the local store last light when the new hours went into effect without notice. War As It Relates To Home Front Is Reviewed for Week (Continued from page one) The fuel shortage, starting with fuel oil, has struck in many direc tions. There has been a sharp in crease in the demand for heating itoves that burn coal and wood, and to meet the expected shortage in this type of stove, production of coal and wood-burning cooking stoves has been halted until January 1, 1943. With an expected consumption next year of three trillion cubic feet of natural gas, shortage of gas for home use is likely to develop in the Middle West. Travel Crows, Transport Short Although we have the best all round transportation system in the world, we now are short of travel facilities. After World War I the rail roads were losing passenger busi ness to the private passenger auto and to the rapidly extending inter city bus lines, and so did not replace many coaches, pullman cars, and locomotives. The wartime shortage of critical materials now makes it impossible to add very much either to bus or railroad travel facilities, although intercity traffic is 50 per cent greater than a year ago ? in some localities, twice as great. Mili tary travel accounts for more than a million passengers a month. These men in war service have first call on travel space, the rest of us must give up all unnecessary trips. While the public is asked to coop erate in travel saving, the Govern ment has acted to make the best pos sible use of present bus facilities. Bus service between many points has been adjusted so that tickets be tween all points common to more than one line are interchangeable, overloads are relieved by diverting traffic to less crowded lines, sched ule for departure of competing buses are adjusted so that they do not du plicate each other, and traffic and operations are being pooled. Will Need 180,000 More Women Our transportation industry, which now employs about 120,000 women, will need 180,000 more to take the place of men going into the armed services and of those attracted to war industries. Women are now working in the big aircraft plants, in many of the munitions plants, and in the instruments industry, but they can be used in mining, lumber ing and many other fields and will have to be recruited in even larger numbers. Beginning November 29, our su gar ration books will serve also for coffee rations. Stamps number 20 to 28 have been designated as coffee stamps and the first coffee stamp is Number 27. The arrangement of the stamps in the book makes it neces sary to use them in order 27, 28, 25, 26, and so forth. Each customer will have to see that the right stamp is removed, and that coffee stamps are not taken from books showing the age of the holder to be fifteen years or less. The fifteen-year-old limit for coffee rations was set in order jto allow larger rations or the adult population, but heavy coffee drink i ers will have to learn to get along on a great deal less, and we should remember that our sailors risked their lives bringing coffee to us from South and Central America. Slashing Use of Metal American technicians are trying in every way to cut out or reduce the use of metal in various products. We'er not building our war machines out of the same steels we used two years ago, new steel alloys have been perfected. The 1943 farm tractor and farm engine program calls for dras tic reductions in the use of copper in these machines. The drug industry is urged to find substitutes for metal containers in such materials as glass, ceramics, and wood. Tubes are now made of cellulose acetate, with a plastic top, or even of lead with pa per lining. More canned soups and infant foods will be packed in glass containers. Prices have been fixed for all kinds of fall and winter outer cloth ing . . . The Government is prepar ing to take action against thousands of retailers, chiefly grocery stores, guilty of violating the regulations that keep down prices . . . Galvaniz ed ware of every sort, from water ing pots and dippers to coal scuttles and ash cans, will be limited to few er types, and their distribution will be restricted in order to save both the metals that go into them and the surface finishing materials . . . More than half a billion pounds of food stuffs . and other farm commodities were delivered for shipment to the allied nations in September. Dried and concentrated foods have be come increasingly important, they save shipping space. There'll be very little outdoor Christmas lighting this year, electricity is needed to light war homes and as power for war plants. Hunters and trappers are asked to save every bit of fat from large and small game aniamls, and to send in the down and small body feather of wild fowl, they're all needed for war. ? County Man Promoted To Captaincy In ^rmy| J Wootard Peel, son of Mrs. Ger trude Peed and the late J. S. Peel, of Everetts, has been promoted to the rank of Captain in the U. S. Army, according to information received by his wife yesterday. Captain Peel, the third Martin County man to be promoted to that rank during the current war, receiv ed his basic training in the reserve officers' training corps. State Col lege, and at Citizens Military Train ?? ??- - A only a comparatively short time, j Wheeler Martin, Jr., of Williamston, ] and Carl Edward Norman, of Rober ?onville, were made captains In the | Army Air Corps some time afo. THE RECORD SPEAKS . . . After two weeks straight run ning without an accident, motor ists broke into the column last Saturday. One person was in jured and another $1Q0 loss was chalked up in the property damage row. But even though the accident was a bit serious, the record last week looks good compared with the one for the 46th week in 1941 when there were six accidents and an in crease in the number of injured. The following tabulations of fer a comparison of the accident trend: first, by corresponding weeks in this year and last and for each year to the present time. 46th Week Comparison Accidents Inj'd Killed Dam'ge 1942 1 1 0 $ 100 1941 6 3 0 395 Comparison To Date 1942 59 36 4 $ 7,308 1941 90 54 6 21,725 New State License Tags One-tenth As Large As Old Ones (Continued from page one) With these things done already the applicant presents himself to the nearest license sale branch. There, the clerk will fill into the blanks the old 1942 license plate number, which, of course, the mo torist retains for another year. The 1942 pocket card itself is left with the clerk. The tab the applicant will receive will be affixed to the rear license plate, but the front license plate must be retained. Do not, caution the Mo tor Vehicle officials, throw away ei ther of your old plates? you still have the same old number that you had in 1942 Migration Worry Another worry arising in this year's license plate sale comes from the fact that thousands of motorists have moved into defense areas. Many of these people, Ward thinks, will not receive their new 1943 pocket registration cards. If any motorist has not received such a card by Dec. 10th he should immediately get busy and notify the Motdr Vehicle De partment in Raleigh of the fact so that the mis-directed card can be substituted and sent on to him at his new address. "We anticipate that it will take three times as long to sell a tab this year as it took to sell two plates last year," Ward explained. "Therefore, unless motorists want to stand in line and even be without their plates for several days, every effort should be made to clear up any doubts at the start of the sale period. We have 30 days in which to sell the tabs, and there will be no extension of time beyond December 31, 1942." Ward said the department was short of help, and that persons who have to get old 1942 cards replaced, or get new 1943 cards which failed to reach them, may experience consid erable delay in obtaining these cards from Raleigh.
