Textiles provide a great number of jobs for people in Duplin and county people encourage new types of tex tile factories to open locally. But, textiles are a relatively new trade within our county which has supported milling and agricultural trades since colonial days. During 1941, Duplin ex perienced a growth all over the county with businesses and new homes being built. The growth brought about new jobs and drew new comers to our county. According to an April 3, 1941 issue of THE DUPLIN TIMES, Kenansville wel comed the opening of Wells Oates Lumber Company. Later in 1941, a November 6 issue told of the construction of a flour and feed mill in the town of Warsaw. Along with these two new businesses, many towns were opening new municipal buildings. Wallace added an addition to their town hall to house their first fire engine and a 20 room hospital was to be erected, an August 7, 1941 issue of THE TIMES stated. The opening of Wells Oates Lumber Company in Kenansville relieved some of the unemployment caused by the closing of the Hardwood Lumber Company. Wells Oates purchased the plant. Wells-Oates operated lumber mills in the towns of Jacksonville and Hallsboro before opening the Kenans ville plant. The Warsaw Hour and Feed Mill was built b\ Joe C. Surratt, who came to Duplin from Davidson County. The main portion of the mill was 30 feet by 40 feet. The structure was four stories in height including the base ment. Another person re located to Duplin by the construction of the mill was John H. Cooper of Roanoke, Va. Cooper was an expe rienced flour miller and was hired by Surratt to supervise the construction of the mill and the milling process. The mill was built with a storage capacity of 6,000 bushels. In addition to the flour mill was a feed grinder for chicken feed. The feed mill portion was constructed with a corn-cutter, grader for chicken feed, hamraermill and a sheller for shucking and shelling corn. And, in Wallace, the town was growing with the addi tion of more than six miles of newly-paved streets and plans for fire and health care. A 20-room hospital was pro posed by Dr. Deane Hundley with construction to begin as soon as carpenters were available. The town hall opened a new addition to house the first fire engine purchased by the citizens of Wallace. The addition to the town hall increased the building from 20 feet by 30 feet to 42 feet by 30 feet. The boom in building went throughout Duplin with the construction of new produce market sheds and town municipal buildings and private dwellings. Duplin, like the remaining counties within North Carolina, seemed to be experiencing a renewed confidence in the economy. Jobs v ere being. t created through the use of building materials in local construction and Duplin citi zens were feeling relieved. Baby Shower Mesdames Libba Grant, Gladys Nethercutt and Judy Davis were hostesses on Tuesday night, April 12th. at a baby shower for Flo (Mrs. Ray) Johnson.
