Peanut Deliveries Near Record Peak On Market Monday (Continued from page one) veated but not marketed. Even mar keting operations were slightly off today as compared with the near record deliveries yesterday. No official estimates could be had immediately, but some buyers were quoted as saying this morning that between 40 and 50 per cent of the crop in this section has already mov ed to market, that marketing is fair ly well up with the harvesting sched ule. While near-record deliveries are being reported on the open market, deliveries to the government ware houses continue unusually light. It , is fairly apparent that actual produc- | tion will not substantiate the acre Court Grants Eight Div orces In County Yesterday Morning (Continued from page one) der less the costs of the action and $51.25 costs incurred in carrying the case to the State Supreme Court. In the case of Farmers Supply Company of Robersonville against W. M. Highsmith, the court ruled that the plaintiff was the owner of certain personal property valued at $108.37 with interest from January I 1, 1940. This morning the court called the case of Standard Fertilizer Company against J. F. Hopkins, and it is be- j mg followed by the Rogers will case. age claims advanced by many far-1 mers in the county last spring. WELL-DRESSED MEN ARE GOING* "BACK TO THE INDIANS" IN THE SMART NEW "Hflac-San SHOES FOR MEN The popularity of Jarman's handsome moccasin-type designs indicates that, according to style-wise men everywhere, the Indians really "had something there". Authentically styled, comfortable "Moc-Sans" have a definite place in every man's wardrobe.

Yet the spirit of the people in most of these lands re mains unbroken, and their under ground resistance, which has serious ly hampered the Nazis war plans, will be an increasing menace to the invaders as Allied advances prom ise future victory. On the Home Front our morale is put to the test by discomforts and restrictions we must undergo for the sake of our single war aim?the de struction of those forces that threat en the very foundations of civiliza tion, our homes and schools. Nation wide gasoline rationing to save our precious rubber supply is one of these minor inconveniences. Stand ing in crowded vehicles may be an ojher. By cutting down all forms of travel?by auto, bus, railway?we will not do away with over-crowd ing, but we lessen a far greater dan ger to our nation's security, of which the Baruch committee warned a breakdown of our transportation system. Our combined freight and passenger transportation has thous ands of teriacles, each a part of the system. Delivery trucks of all kinds from fuel oil to flowers, from laun dry to ice, make up the web of serv ices to which we have been accus tomed We'll get these services only once a day from the same source, and we'll have to do a great deal more bundle carrying, especially of Christmas parcels. Fuel Oil Situation Worsens With fuel oil going overseas in larger quantities, the Eastern fuel oil situation .continues to worsen. New restrictions have been placed on consumption of fuel oil and kero sene by space heaters other than furnaces. Those who use oil or kero sene stoves must apply for fuel ra tions on a basis of not more than 550 square feet of floor area per heater unless "it can be proved that the equipment must actually heat a larg er total area. And all those persons, except private homeowners, who ap ply for fuel oil rations for heating apartments, office buildings, institu tions and the like, must prove that the furnaces cannot be converted to coal burning before they receive fur ther fuel oil More and more, the country's wholesalers and retailers are becom ing a vital part of the war program of price control and commodity dis tribution und< i?tjnvi riinient?regu lations. The fundamentals of coffee rationing will be simply and graphi cally explained in words and pic tures in hundreds of thousands of food stores throughout the country. Store keepers will be expected to see that their customers adhere to the rationing program, and count all coffee on hand November 28 as part of their ration. Restaurants, hotels, and institutions will be entitled to as much coffee, less stocks on hand, from November 22 through January ?11. as they used in September and October. Coffee inventories of re tailers and wholesalers at the start of rationing may be obtained from supplies through "purchase war rnnts issued by the purchasers, in alii tickets 9a tuu~i/up %tceUaky?

Motorists on Martin County highways chalked up another safety record when they travel ed through last week without an accident. The safety record is reflecting much improvement, motorists on county highways having traveled during three weeks out of the past four with out mishap. However, in making a perfect record last week, the motorists showed little improve ment over the record of a year ago when only one minor acci dent was reported. For the year to date, the mo torists have a far better record than in 1941, but even then the record is not as good as one would expect when compared with the reported decrease in traffic volume. 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. 47th Week Comparison Accidents Inj'd Killed Dam'ge 1942 0 0 0 $ 000 1941 100 10 Comparison To Date 1942 59 36 4 $ 7,308 1941 91 54 6 21,735 New Regulations To Require Motorists to Sign Gas Coupons (Continued from page one) tions after that date. On and after November 26, 1942, and not later than November 30, 1942, each dealer and distributor must surrender to his board all cou pons in his possession which do not bear the required notations. In the case of a dealer, the board shall is sue inventory coupons in exchange. In the case of a distributor, the board shall issue an Exchange Certificate. Both the dealer and distributor should summarize on Form OPA K-541, all coupons submitted to the board. The board must not accept cou pons without the required notations after November 30, 1942, and these coupons will have no value for any purpose after that date. Through a system, the details of which have not been disclosed, ra tioning authorities will be able to" check up on excessive consumption, and in those cases investigations will be ordered. 1 William F.

Nora Cherry is heading the drive in the colored schools and among the colored citizens of the town. While many colored people just like many white people enjoying increas ed incomes are throwing away or living up their income to the last penny, reports indicate that the col ored school children are leading in the purchase of savings stamps and that many colored citizens are in vesting every spare dollar in bonds. Much is expected of everyone, and it is believed the colored population will measure up to all expectations. Bulk Of Christmas Mail Must Be Sent By Deeember First (Continued from page one) Railroads are cooperating by con verting some hundreds of steel box cars and similar equipment for mail transportation, and Joseph B. East man, Director of Defense Transpor tation, has ordered that unnecessary travel be curtailed to the limit dur ing the holiday season. But these measures cannot assure deliveries of gifts on time unless the public coop erates by mailing early and thus spreading the transportation load ov er a longer period than usual. Mr. Purdum called attention to the task of the Post Office Depart ment in moving millions of pieces of mail every day to and from sol diers, sailors and marines through out the world. This extraordinary job must be kept current, even while the holiday rush of mailings is handl ed. Also he pointed out, the postal establishment is operating with many thousands of inexperienced person nel, employed to take the place of men called to the armed services. The new employees naturally can not handle the holiday mail jam with the smoothness and speed of the postal veterans whom they re place. In view i>f all these hanrtieaps fr> the service, Mr. Purdum added, post al patrons should mail their gifts by December 1, if they wish to insure that their friends will not be disap pointed at Christinas.
