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 the up-and-up. 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 farmers. 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 s2,so(F* , <^r>tobacco. AH in all farmers gene* optimistic and feel that there is j ] somewhat of a brighter future the farmer and his family, [Many Attended Music And Singing School Professor J. H.

After being held to a tie by the Martins on Sunday in a five inning game halted by rain and losing to the Martins Monday 8 to 3, the Co lonials came back strong in yester day’s tilt to top the Martins as Bill Ferebee registered his fourth straight victory over Bill Spivey’s boys. In turning in the win Ferebee fanned eight and bore down with men on the bags. The Martins gathered a total of ten hits to outhit the Colo nials but 10 Williamston runners were left stranded on the bases. Over 700 fans saw the Colonials hop on “Doc” Kugler for three runs in the opening inning and were nev er overtaken. Kugler allowed Eden ton but eight safe blows but two costly errors paved the way to his defeat. With one out in the first inning, Jimmy Partin slashed a double into right center, Joe Weebb was hit by a pitched ball and Brake dropped Suttenfield’s fly to load the sacks. Two runs scored on an outfield fly by Henry House and an error by Herring, and Herbert Leary lined a single to right to drive across the third tally. The Martins scored one in the fourth on two singles and an error by House, Edenton’s only miscue of the game, and another came in the fifth on singles by Herring, Uzzle and Taylor. With only a one run lead the Colo nials managed to send home their j fourth marked in the seventh on two i singles and an infield out. Bill Spivey sent Gardner in to bat (for Kugler to open the ninth and he promptly doubled down the right field foul line to throw a scare into j the locals. Ferebee bore down to strike out Earp for the second time during the afternoon and forced Gay-, lord to ground out to the infield, but Leon Brogden poked a single to cen ter, scoring Gardner. Brogden rr.e v ed to second with the typing run on the throw to the plate, but Brake lifted a fly to Pratt in left for the final out. Corbitt and Earp displayed a sen sational brand of shortstopping, each turning a one sparkling play and Earp handling nine chances in per fect style. v Joe Webb, House and Leary slam j med out two hits each for the Cols ! as did Brogden, Uzzle and Taylor : for the Martins. The teams meet here today at 4 :p. m. in the third match of the , | series and with the standing of one j victory for each team, baseball goers ! may expect a battle royal as “Gy" j Olgers,, local Ne-Hi manager, will j go to the hill to oppose Slim Gard ! ner in a continuation of Sunday’s battle which was halted by rain with the score tied at two all in the fifth inning. In event the series does not come to an end this week, Manager Graham Byrum most likely will se .J Bill Ferebee to the 'mound h&te next Sunday in his fifth fling at' he Martin* 1 COLORED MAN LOSES AF IN AUTOMOBILE V) ECK A disastrous automobile wreck oc curred Wednesday night near BaL ' lards Bridge in Chowan County an automobile driven by Van "Suren Holley, colored, of near Hobbsville, collided with a log truck loaded with gum logs. -In the cars with Holley at the time were boys and three girls, all of them being injured. 1 They were brought to Dr. Powell’s office, where they were treated.
