TO BUY STAMPS
Law Requires Waterfowl Hunters To
Purchase $1 Stamp; Violation
Subject To Fine
Every hunter over 16 years of age
is now requested to have in his pos
session a migratory-bird huntig
stamp while hunting wildfowl. This
is required by an act of Congress ap
proved by President Roosevelt which
became effective June 16, 1934, and
is designed to aid in the program for
restoration of migratory waterfowl.
Stamps cost $1 and can be pur
chased at post offices in all county
1 seats, in all cities having a population
of 2500 or more and at other points
convenient to waterfowl centers.
Hunting without a stamp is un
lawful and punishable by a fine of
1 SSOO or by imprisonment for not
1 more than six months or both fine
1 and imprisonment. The stamp does
1 not exempt hunters of migratory
1 fowl from complying with state laws
! and federal regulation. The stamp
is not transferable.

Tobacco Growers Signed
100 Per Cent On
At the present time Chowan
County farmers are in good spirits.
Apparently the good prices being
paid for tobacco has reflected a spirit
of optimism and, coupled with pros
pects for good prices for cotton and
peanuts, everything seems' to be on
Eight thousand dollars have been
received by Chowan farmers as the
first payment for rental of cotton
lands, and another is expected about
October 1. Two thousand dollars
have also been received as the first
payment on tobacco land rental. An
other payment for tobacco is expect
ed in October.
Four hundred and seventeen Cho
wan farmers, or 85.1 per cent, have
signed up on the cotton contract,
while 634 farmer shave signed up
for the allotment plan.
The tobacco farmers of the county
have signed up 100 per cent on to
bacco contracts, 43 having placed
their names on the dotted line. Last
year about 144 acres were planted in
tobacco, while this year approximate
ly 300 acres have been planted.
While a good price is anticipated
for peanuts, nothing definite is
known at present what the price will
be. The marketing agreement with
the peanut cleaners has expired and
up to now nothing has been done in
the matter. Information relative to
some action in regard to peanuts is
expected almost any time.
There are also 112 com and hog
contracts signed in Chowan. The
hog contract calls for a 25 per cent
reduction over the 1932-1933 aver
age number of hogs raised for mar
ket. Under the contract the gov
ernment pays sls per head for the
number reduced and this should net
around $20,000 to be received by the
Parity payments on cotton and to
bacco will also be received after the
crops are harvested and sold, which
. will net about $5,000 for cotton and
