SIX PAGES MOREHEAD CITY, AND BEAUFORT, NORTH CAROLINA, TUESDAY, AUGUST 31, 1948 SIX PAGES PUBLISHED TUESDAYS AND FRIDAYS CA MES 10c County Draft Board Chairman Requests Immediate Registration of Men, 18 - 26 Wiley Taylor, county draft board chairman, has requested that all men required to register in the 19 48 Selective Service act present themselves at one of the county draft board offices as early as pos sible regardless of age. Mr. Taylor added that after this week, offices in Atlantic and New port will be closed, after which all men must register at either the Beaufort or Morehead City office. It makes no difference, he said, at which of the four offices now open the men choose to register. Reporting on the first day of re gistration, Mr. Taylor said that about 35 men had registered in Beaufort by noontime and that a similar number signed up in More head City. At press time he had not received pny reports from either Atlantic or Newport. Mr. Taylor said the draft board needs additional help and anyone wishing to volunteer as a registrar will be welcomed. Heading the four county offices are Mrs. Ruby Holland, Beaufort; Jesse Staton, Morehead City; Mrs. Prudie M. Willis, Atlantic; and Leon A. Mann, Newport. v Air Parcel Post Begins Tomorrow The advent of speedier-nation-wide-worldwide air parcel post service tomorrow brings back to minds of old-timers the introduc tion of similar operations 35 years ago. It was in 1913, according to Postmaster Harold Webb of More head Cltyvfhat parcel post first Trade, its appearance in the United States. -r.CT The service at that time was established primarily to aid farm ers and villages located off the beaten paths, in expediting their products to market and, in turn, re ceiving goods from larger cities. However, mail order houses and other establishments were quick to realize its value. Transportation facilities in those days were slow and tedious. Motor driven vehicles were few and the roads which they traversed were frequently impassable. Also, trains were giving off more sparks and smoke than speed. There were no commercial planes in these days and only the foolhardy visioned the rapid approach of (his Air Age, remarked the postmaster. Then it took days to transport parcel post packages across the country. Some parcels were forced to go by virtually every movable conveyance before they reached their destination particularly to the more remote sectors. From that modest beginning, par cel post has grown to become an integral cog in the far-flung Ameri can postal operations, commented Mr. Webb. Its annual poundage, keeping step with the progress of transportation, has soared from a few million to billions of pounds of. assorted commodities. Still determined to employ the fastest means of transportation to move the mails, the Post Office de partment will add the link neces sary to give the United States the world's most highly specialized doorstep delivery service with the launching of the new nationwide worldwide air parcel post, said Postmaster Webb. Health Department Issues Immunization Report A statistical report on the im munization work of the county health department in June was re leased yesterday by the local health department, and the num ber who turned out for vaccinations was described by Dr. N. Thomas Ennett, health officer, as "not a verv good showing." The statistics drawn up were based on immunization work done outside of the. health office in va rious community clinics throughout the county. There were 30 clinics In all. A totnl of 238 persons were im munized against typhoid, 39 for diptheria, 30 for whooping cough, and three for small pox. -, Dr. Emett accounts for the small turnout by saying that people usually do not take advantage of vaccinations of this type unless there is an Imminent threat of di sease, such as an epidemic. V. There is also another possibility, Dr. Ennett added. Many persons may have been vaccinated private ly, i . Hurricane W. A. Ellison, Jr., Heads Institute Dr. R. E. Coker, Former Di rector, to Remain as. Ex ecutive Chairman With the resignation of Dr. R. E. Coker as director of the Insti tute of Fisheries Research, More head City, W. A. Ellison, Jr., of Boston and Belhaven, has taken over the guidance of the University of North Carolina research organ ization. Dr. Coker, who is vacation ing at Blowing Rock and will be away until mid-September, will con tinue as chairman of the executive committee which will formulate and define the policy of the insti tute. Other members of the board are Dr. Harden F. Taylor, assistant director, Roy Hampton and D. P. Costello. The survey of Inside shrimp now being made aims at determination of migration, growth rate, density of population, establishment of shrimp stations from Southport to Roanoke Island. These stations will be visited once every two weeks and an effort made to find out where shrimp are taken. Dr. Eugene Roelofs, of the insti tute, this week visited the Chowan river, Roanoke river and the head waters of the Albemarle looking for possible pollution that would affect shad, herring, and striped bass. Dr. Alfred Chestnut, of the research board, has just returned from one of his monthly runs from JUaufort across the mouth of the Neuse and Pamlico to Stumpy Point. Hydrographic stations across the mouth of the Neuse and Pamlico and up the Hyde county coast have alread been established. The plans are to go as far north as Croatan and Roanoke Sounds, and establish a series of stations on the sound side of the reef, all to be visited at least once a month. The purpose is to gather exact data on hydrography of sound wa ters, on the basis of which new studies on fish, Crustacea and mol luscs can be made. A completely-equipped trailer with outboard and skiff, thermo meters, water bottles, and nets, is being used in the survey, as well as the "Victory" (which has not yet been renamed), a 38-foot-beam, Chrysler-powered craft built in Connepticut and bought locally. The larger boat, which replaces the Reliance, draws but three feet of water and has been fitted fori scientific work with such items as deep-sea thermometers, collecting- water bottles, plankton nets, bot tom grabs, small oyster dredce. small fish trawl, two and a half foot rin8 net and ship-to-shore tele phone.

Tobacco Prices Continue Good During the second week of East ern North Carolina flue-cured to bacco sales, prices by gra'des were steady to higher in most cases than the first two days of the season. However, the United States and North Carolina Departments of Agriculture report a heavy influx of tips and lower quality primings fte the tnVkrta-t caused t considtit able increase in inferior offerings. This resulted In an average of only $47.77 per hundred for the 35,152,041 gross pounds marketed the week ending August 27. The average was $3.03 below that estab lished last week. For the first seven days of the season gross sales reached 50,615,035 averaging $48.69. In spite of the light volume sold early in the week, season sales were running heavier than the comparable period last season with the general average $5.31 higher. Comparative prices with the first two days show increases ranging from 25 cents to $5.00 per hundred. Most were $1.00 to $2.00. The gains were principally for lugs, prim ings, and lower leaf grades. Bet ter quality leaf and low orange cutters were slightly weaker with losses generally at $1.00. The proportion ot lugs sold de creased about one-half from last week. More leaf, primings, and nondescript appeared. More of ferings were of green and red col or as many tips were marketed. Common to good leaf, fair to fine lugs, low and fair primings, and nondescript made up the bulk of sales. Most markets ended the week with blocked sales. Heavy deliv eries are anticipated next week.

Farm Executive Requests Increase In Memberships (Special to The News-Times NEW BERN Some 80 Farm Bureau leaders, including 26 wom en, from eight county organiza tions, including Carteret, in a dis trict meeting here recently were told by R. Flake Shaw, Greensboro, executive vice president of the North Carolina Farm bureau, that "we need membership more than ever this year if we are to hold on to the agricultural gains we have made," ' Shaw, who recently toured farm centers of Western Europe and Great Britain, pointed out that na tions overseas have had farm or ganizations for many years, and agricultural programs, too. He added that in England about 90 percent of the farmers are mem bers of the National Farmers uni on, the British equivalent of the American Farm Bureau federation, and that the annual dues there range from $5 to $150, depending on acreage. "When we consider that the Aik en bill amendment guaranteeing to bacco growers 90 percent of parity for their product only passed the 80th Congress on a 40 to 41 vote," Shaw said, "we can't help but rea lize how important Farm Bureau is to every farmer. Senator Aiken himself, sponsor of the long-range farm measure, said publicly that if it hadn't been for Farm Bureau the price support program would never have been put over in that session."

Deaths from Tuberculosis Hit New Low in 1947 NEW YORK (AP) - Tuber culosis was given a setback in 19 47, with a new low for deaths in the United States. Provisional fi gures show 47,636 deaths, Miss Mary Dempsey, statisician of the National Tuberculosis association, writes in the NTA's Bulletin. This, she says, is the first time the country's TB death toll has been below 50,000. There were 50,911 deaths in 1946. Wrong ideas about tuberculosis are one reason the white plagu? hasn't been era dicated, says Dr. R. H. Runde, me dical director of the Peoria County (111.) Tuberculosis Sanatorium. ( One. false idea is that vou can't get TB unless someone in you: familj had it. Another, he v. riles, is that a change of climate is the most important thing in treatment. Still anoher is that one x-ray exam insion is good for a lifetime. Dr. Runde lists five other rea sons TB hasn't b?en licked: 1. Complacency on the part of the public; 2. Until recently, there weren't facilities for early diagno sis; 3. Many localises still lack fa cilities for treatment; 4. Thev is no generally accented method of immunization although BcG vac cine has been widely used abroad with encouraginz results; 5. Theie tnr bat been a pxifSc remedy.

Slate Highway Patrol men M. V. Hooper and K. M. Fowl er were notified by Beaufort police to investigate the accident at 2:30 a.m. The patrolmen later discovered that the front wheels of Lennox's car, a 1939 four-door Chevrolet se dan, had a tendency to lock when the brakes were applied, this pro bably causing the accident. The vehicle is thought to have turned over lengthwise. The accident victim's death was caused by concussion of the brain and severe back and chest injuries. There will be no inquest. Mr. Lennox will be buried with full military rites, members of the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars officiating. Inter termcnt will be in the Episcopal church cemetery.

Law Repealed On Limitation Of Boat Length Oyster Dealers Appear Be fore Committee; Salter Path Dispute Settled The commercial fisheries com mittee repealed Friday the law li miting the length of power boats used in taking oysters to 32 feet. Now there is no limit whatever. Capt. George Clark, of Belhaven, pointed out that the width of some 32 foot boats make it possible for these to carry more than a 45-foot boat, which under the former law oyster dealers were not allowed to use. He remarked further that ther Is already a limit on the size of dredge, a more vital factor in con trolling the number of oysters taken than the carrying capacity of the boat. Dredges are limited to 100 pounds. There were complaints also that all dealers are not cooperating in the state's oyster shell program. It was reported that Hodges Broth ers, of Belhaven, did not turn over to the state their share of shells and it was further stated that this concern is preparing to sell its oys ters in Virginia, thus depriving the state of tax revenue. The matter was referred to the executive committee for action. The dealers heard from Dr. A. F. Chestnut who explained what the tnf is ilnina In inrrvasa nvitur production in North Carolina.
