Oakey, Jr., in Recorder's Court on Tuesday, when the difficulties of No vella White and Teddy Cox, both col ored, were aired in court. Although Novella plead guilty and Teddy told of how Novella had cut a gash m his shoulder with a pocket knife after he had given her a beat ing, they seemed to be on such good terms that the court decided to let them go. Another case of lover3 disagreeing was that of Buster Doone, charged with slapping Lennie Dail, both col ored. Buster plead guilty, admitting that lie did slap Lennie after he call ed her while she was talking with another fellow and she did not come. "Well, she isnt a bird dog, is sheT" asked Judge Oakey. The cam was dismissed with the admonition of tJie court to punish her some other way next time. The couple appeared to be on the best of terms after the case was over. Judgment in the case of Harrell Thach, charged with abandonment was suspended tor two years upon condition that the defendant support his wife and family to the best of his ability during that time. The court costs were not charged against the defendant, as the court stated he wished everything that the defendant could make to go to his family. When the case was called against Mr. Thach the prosecuting witness, Mrs. Thacji, did not appear, and it developed that the couple were living together. However, Mr. Thach was directed to bring her into court, where the matter was heard. Clarence Pemberton, colored, charg ed with assaulting with, a deadly weapon,to wit, an axe, onfe Philemon Shambry, was an old offender. He had been in court some weeks ago for fighting. On both occasions Clarence was represented by J. S. McNider. The judgment in this case was six months en the road, the sentence to be suspended upon the payment of the costs and upon the condition that the defendant not be found in Per quimans County for a period of two years. Clarence Burnette, colored, charged with illegal possession of liquor, was acquitted. Rev. Ls. M. Dixon To Leave Hertford Rev. L. M. Dixon, pastor of the Hertford Baptist Church, is leaving Hertford.

Perquimans Highs Lose To Edenton High School The Perquimans High School foot ball team went down to defeat last Friday afternoon on the local grid iron when the Edenton High School went back with an 84-0 victory. The local team was no match for the more experienced Chowan boys, who have not been scored upon this year and have won the Northeastern Class B championship. They play in the semi-finals today at Rocky Mount, where they will fight it out with New Bern. The most outstanding Perquimans player in Friday's game was Carl Britt. Thi3 flashy halfback on num erous occasions brought down the heavy charging Edenton runners and but for a weak line might have made substantial gains for his team. On two occasions he almost got away for touchdowns on passes. C. Brinn also made a number of beautiful punts, sending the ball out of his own territory. Friday's game completed the year's schedule, and while the team has not made an outstanding record, Coach Hughes is well pleased with the im provement over last year's team.
