Lives Os Two Hertford Gfefe I
I fluffed Out In Auto Accidf^M
The entire Albemarle section
was shocked Saturday morning |
when it was learned that twoi
17-year-old Hertford girls were
killed and two young men mir
aculously escaped death in an
automobile accident just a short
distance north of the “Y” on
U. S. 17.
The girls who lost their lives
were Julip Anne Lane and Joyce

Perquimans High School. Miss
Lane was the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. John Thomas Lane

ter of Mr. and Mrs. Marshall R.
Miss Owens was killed almost
instantly and Miss Lane died a
few hours after being taken to
The two boys who escaped
death were Jerry Taylor and
Robert White. Taylor, driver of
the car. was severely injured.!
while Robert White escaped with !
a few outs and bruises about j
the head, but was in a bad state |
of shock for a few days.
The accident occurred when a
new Ford driven by Taylor ram
med into the rear of a trailer
truck driven by Vernon Bur
nette of Elizabeth City. The
Ford was totally demolished so
that it was more or less of a |
miracle that any of the occu- j
pants escaped death. According ;
to some people at the scene of |
the Occident, it was foggy at j

Now Being Plannedj
Over a million acres of North;
Carolina cropland planted to to-!
bacco, peanuts, cotton and wheati
! will be measured within the
! next two months, says W. E.
| Matthews, chairman of the State
I Agricultural Stabilization and
A major part of the acreage
allotment and marketing quota
program is the measuring of
these acres after planting and
prior to harvest. These allot
ment programs are in effect as
la result of approval by farmers'
jin referendums held to deter
• mine if such allotments would be
|in effect. This measuring is ac-
I complishcd in the flue-cured to
i bacco. peanut and cotton areas
by visiting the farm and deter
mining where allotment crops!
are planted and plotting and
measuring the acreage through
the use of aerial photographs.
Matthews reminds farmers
that the ASC reporter who visits'
the farm to measure the acreage
is out there to perform a ser
vice for them. He says that
assisting in this measuring and
designation of fields planted to
allotment crops is definitely the,
responsibility of the farmer or
his agent. He brings out, too,
that it is greatly to the farmers’
advantage to be here and assist
in the measuring. By being
present the producer will rea- 1
lize how the acreages are deter-'
mined and he will be able to
assure himself that the reporter
has received correct information
; and has correctly plotted the
’' fields on the aerial photograph.

afternoon in routing the Eden
ton Aces 11-4 in an Albemarle
Conference baseball game played
on Hicks Field. It was the
sixth straight defeat for the
The Panthers used three hits,
two wild pitches and five er
rors in wrapping up the game
jwith nine runs in the second.
They added two more in the
fifth frame with a double, a
single and a throw past third
base on a pick-off play.
The Aces scored in the first,
third and fourth innings. Dickie
I Cobb singled to open the first
j and stole second. He went to
.third when Shortstdp Marion Al- .
len tried unsuccessfully to trap
i him after picking up Jerry Tol
i ley’s grounder. Allen then
■ dropped Zackie Harrell’s hot
• bouncer and Cobb scored.
Edenton got two in the third
when Wayne Baker forced Har
-1 lell at second, stole second him

Ward came home on Lloyd Las
siter’s scratch single through |

■Jing in the fourth. Cobb led off
with a walk and again stole
i second. He chalked up his sec
" ond run of the day on Carroll

struck out six, walked one and
hit three men on his way to
victory. He was relieved in the
sixth by Norman.
Plymouth had five hits. Cobb
led 'the Aces’ seven-hit attack
with two singles and a triple in
three official trips for a perfect
day at the plate. Harrell made
four of the Aces’ seven errors.
