The outcome of the refernda will determine whether marketing quotas will be applied to these commodities in 1938. Marketing quotas cannot be used except with the approval of a large majority of the farmers since the Act itself provides that if more than one-third of the producers voting in a referndum vote against the quotas, they will not go into effect. Where cotton, flue-cured or dark tobacco, which includes both fire-cured and dark air-cured, are grown in the same locality, the referendum for each commodity will be held at the same time and place but the vote on each commodity will be separate. The referenda regulations provide for a voting place in each community where cotton, fluecured or dark tobacco are grown. The polls open not later than 9:00 a. m. and close at 7:00 p. m. Each producer who grew cotton, flue-cured or dark tobacco in 1937 will be entitled to cast one vote ' in the referendum for the . commodity. *1 urill art- I r uruivi uiaiiuvuviu mn ^ pear in The Pilot next week. The national marketing quota proclaimed for the 1938 crop of flue-cured tobacco is 705,000,000 pounds and the quota for dark tobacco is 145,000,000 pounds. The 1937 flue - cured crop was 850,000,000 pounds and the dark crop was 158,000,000 pounds.

According: to a dispatch from the Charlotte Observer Bureau Ir Washington last week, sounds ai if Southport people may heai more of the alleged residence ol Bill Payne and Wash Turner ir Southport for several weeks lasl fall. It will be remembered thai Fred Fulford, a local man, was arrested for harboring Messrs Payne, Turner, etals. The arrest was made on a Friday nighl and the wanted men arc supposed to have been somewhere .around at the time. Two days [afterwards, just after dark on Sunday night, they evidently concluded the moment had arrived for them to make a break from where they were holed up. At any rate, a car bearing Payne and Turner rapidly away from Southport was wrecked on the edge of town right after dark on the Sunday following the arrest of Fulford. Robert Marlow, occupant of a passing car, was forced to drive the men to Hallsboro. In the dispatch to the Observer J. Edgar Hoover is credited with saying: "Our feeling is that we should isolate these criminals and make them 'lone wolves,' who will not have the aid and assistance that they did in the Dillinger case. They must have contact with doctors or women or aid of some kind in finding apartments or in finding hideouts. We have adopted the policy of run! ning them down.
