Of Allotments For
Peanuts Next Year
(Continued from page one)
of the crop for seven cents or more
and a comparatively small portion
for three and one-half cents plus a
small premium, some farmers talked
about revolting. "The government
shan't get a one of my peanuts at
that price." one farmer was quoted
as saying. The complaints were many
and they were heard in Washing
Plans for throwing the crop into
the open market were considered,
but it was seen that the heavy oil
plantings in many states would beat
the price down, and the department
urged the continuance of the pro
The program is expected to hold
for the remainder of the season, but
its future is uncertain Numbers of
farmers in the old peanut belts have
sworn that they'll not plant a single
peanut for oil next year. And that's
where the trouble lies just now. If
farmers in the old belts do not want
to help produce oil peanuts for the
war program, there is little else to
do but withdraw the quotas and
throw the crop on the open market.
A breakdown in the price will, it is
believed, prove more costly than the
price differential now in effect
Just how the problem can be solv
ed is not known definitely It is be
lieved, however, that politicians in
Washington can do little, that it is
squarely up to the farmers in the
regular peanut beh to step in and
Congressman Herbert Bonner ad
vises that a conference had been held
in an effort to solve the problem and
save the quotas, but the accomplish
ments of that meeting, if any, have
not been announced.

System All Muddled
And Truck Traffic
(Continued from page one)
erators are demanding hundreds of
gallons of gasoline for the month of
The big threat to the transport
mileage ration system is resulting
from delay on some one's part, pos
sibly that of the trucker himself.
Their "S" books have expired and
comparatively few truckers have ap
plied for "T" books, meaning that no
gas will be made available in those
cases until rations are declared and
granted under the new system
Most of the cursing and howling
are the result of variations in the al
lotments. Not so many are complain
ing about their individual allotments
as they are about what the "neigh
bor" got. It is apparent that there are
sweeping inequalities, that the Office
of Pefense Transportation in De
troit failed to measure up to or pros
ecute the allotment task with any
great degree of success. It is quite
possible that many truckers who had
their allotments slashed "to the
bone" could get along by hauling
fertilizer and produce to market with
team. A few have admitted they
could and were willing to do just
that, but the "neighbor" got 14,000
miles, "and if he can ride all over
hell and back, I want to be able to
do the same thing".
That's the way the truckers are
talking, but in some cases there are
truckers who are taking their re
ductions without complaining. Some
few have been and are being forced
to give up the idea of farming for a
profit, and even though they are not
bellyaching they do say that it is
hard to understand why some can get
liberal allotments, continue to make
money, and carry on as if there was
no war and no need to conserve gas
The transport mileage system is
out of the hands of the Martin Coun
ty Rationing Board. They can't is
sue "T" book allotments in excess of
the quotas allowed by Detroit.
That something will have to be
done about the system and that
something will be done to correct,
gross inequalities can be expected.
For the present, truckers and others
are urged to be patient. During the
meantime, they might remember
that a war of life and death is still
going on, and that business and per
sonal interests will, in all probabili
ty, have to be sacrificed. *

Reports claim that traffic on the

per cent, but the number of ac

have been decreased just one
third. It is apparent that motor

Term Of Court Has
Tribunal Will End Its Second
Recess of Term Here
Scheduled to last for two weeks,
the special term of the Martin Coun
ty Superior Court will possibly hold
forth on six or seven of the ten days
despite the regular Thanksgiving
holiday and a second interruption to
day. Judge R. D. Dixon, presiding
over the term, was called to Wilm
ington late Monday to appear as a
witness in a case in the courts there.
He is expected to return and recon
vene the court Thursday morning.
So far the term has been an un
eventful one. Few people have at
tended the session, and the cases
have had little importance attach
ed to them.
Proceedings not previously re
In the case of D. M. Roberson
against Chas. H. Jenkins and Com
pany, the plaintiff was declared the
owner of a truck valued at $350.
The fast aging case of S. E. Close
against Goldie Hyman has at long
last been cleared from the docket,
the plaintiff receiving a judgment in
the sum of $50.
The cases of Mrs. Ada Haislip and
Johnnie Mobley against Corbitt
Swain were settled by agreement.
While the plaintiffs received some
consideration, no amounts were made
public. The cases developed follow
ing an automobile accident in Cross
Roads Township nearly a year ago.
A greater part of Monday was de
voted to the trial of the case of A. L.
Mizelle against C. G. Rogerson and
others. The plaintiff was appealing
to the court to have a deed set aside.
It is understood that a new deed is
.to be prepared, but no formal judg
ment has been prepared in the case.
Based on two years of separation,
a divorce was granted Mary Jane
Carson in her case against King Da
vid Carson. The divorce was the
ninth one granted by the court so
far this term.
