Propose Suspension 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 ton. 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 gram. 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 take action. 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 Continues Uncertain (Continued from page one) erators are demanding hundreds of gallons of gasoline for the month of December. 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 and tires. 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. * Prominent Everetts Resident Passes At Ilis Home Yesterday (Continued trom page one) When a young man he was mar ried to Miss Minnie Bailey who sur vives with three children, "George Taylor, Jr , and Miss Anna Louise Taylor and Darrell Taylor, all of Everetts. His sun, just recently in ducted into the Army, was to re port for active duty, but the sudden death of his father postponed the trip. He is also survived by three brothers, Messrs. Will and Edward Taylor, of Williamston, and Dennis Taylor, of Coco, Florida, and two sisters, Mrs. IxRoy Taylor, of Wil liamston and Mrs. Dillon Peel, of Everetts. Devoted to his home, Mr. Taylor cherished the atmosphere of his family circle, and enjoyed the friendship of many throughout his native and adopted communities. His character was marked for its sincerity, and accommodating acts were willingly done by him for his fellowman. Funeral services are being con ducted at the home this afternoon at 4 o'clock by Elder B. S. Cowin. Interment will follow in the Rober sonville Cemetery. THE RECORD SPEAKS . . . Motorists on Martin County highways slipped another acci dent into the column last week to boost the total to 60 to date. Reports claim that traffic on the roads has been decreased fifty per cent, but the number of ac cidents and the number of deaths have been decreased just one third. It is apparent that motor ists are more considerate of property, however, the figures showing that damage has been cut by two-thirds. 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 0 0 t 300 1941 1 0 0 210 Comparison To Date 1942 60 36 4 $ 7,608 1941 92 54 6 21,945 Large Group White Men To Leave Soon For Physical Tests (Continued from page one) Ernest Edward Brown, RFD 3, Williamston.

Regular Two-Weeks Term Of Court Has Many Interruptions Tribunal Will End Its Second Recess of Term Here Thursday Morning 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 ported: 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.
