A SHORT SHORT STORY
When big Bud Kehoe left Smith
Corner and signed with the Carolina
Artillery, little Paul Munds 16 going
op 17, 5 feet 6, weight 120, could
stand it no longer. Smith Comer
was unbearable without Bud, 20 years,
6 feet, weight 160, hero to Paul and
constantly followed around by him.
So when the wheezing Model T

the Artillery and Ride,” in hopped

saying, “Eighteen, Sir,” to the man

muster and screwing his cherubic
countenance into a grotesque mimicry
Becoming the pet of the regiment

was assigned to learn the art of
bugling and down at Sevier life was
one continuous round of tooting away
with 20 others, mercifully ordered
miles into the woods.
But Paul tired of sounding “rev

was made sergeant of the telephone
detail he begged the Colonel and was
transferred as a runner.

comfortably in bed. “Mother,” he
said late that night, “I left here one
old friend of my war days, my old
blouse; it hangs in the closet.”
He hugged it to him, hunting
through the pockets for some fa
miliar object. Suddenly with a great
effort he jerks his hand up, waving
it wildly over his head. A shower of
confetti settles over him, confetti
left in his blouse since that glorious
night in Durham 15 years before, and

Cotton Growers May
Plant More Cotton
Cotton growers who signed adjust
ment contracts can prepare to plant
more cotton in 1935, according to
Charles A. Sheffield, of State College.
The contracts provide that the
maximum reduction that can be made
next year will be 25 per cent below
the base acreage and production.
Sheffield added that the reduction
may not be as much as the maxi
mum allowed. This year the reduc
tion averaged 38 peer cent in North
The maximum reduction that can
be imposed in 1935, under the con
tracts, upon a grower with a base of
20 acres will be five acres. This
means that he will be able to grow
15 acres in 1935 instead of the 12
acres allotted him thiis year.
Sheffield also expressed hope that
the rental and benefit payments for
next year would be larger than they
were in 1934, but said that he could
not state definitely what the pay
ments will be until the details of the
cotton program for 1935 have been
developed in Washington.
The program will be based on the
j outlook for both domestic and for
eign consumption and the amount of
cotton carried over from this year.
Sheffield also said that producers
who have not signed contracts will
be given another chance to do so be
fore the 1935 program is started.

J. A. WOODARD
This is another sketch in a series
of write-ups about prominent Edep
ton people 60 years ago, taken from
“Historical and Descriptive Review of
the State of North Carolina.” I
J. A. Woodard, one of those bul
warks of Edenton’s financial strength
and prosperity, has been known as
express and steamboat agent upwards
of nineteen years. This fall, how
ever, he resigned his post with the
Southern Express Company. His
steamboats connect with the Seaboard
road at Franklin and do a large
local and through freight and pas
senger business. Mr. Woodard has
been some eight years in fertilizers
and sells all of the guano consumed
in this county; he has bought cotton
here for the last four years, consign
ing to Norfolk merchants. For a
similar length of time he has been
extensively engaged in fishing on the
Albemarle Sound; he runs nine
“Dutch” nets, has three boats and
handles between four and five hund
red packages in the year. The catch
consists chiefly of rock, shad, her
ring and perch, which are shipped
mostlv to New York, Baltimore and
Philadelphia, the salt fish being sold
in Richmond; he likewise doe 3 a con
siderable loaning and collecting busi
ness, mainly with and to farmers.
Mr. Woodard has a broad and com
prehensive grasp of business affairs;
he is a native of Chowan County,
though partly raised in Virginia; he
has an easy and genial mannar which
sits gracefully on the shoulders of
those of responsibility and trust; he
married in Norfolk, has a family of
seven. He is a Mason and a mem
ber of the Mission Baptist Church.
