Man Says He Thought
Women Fight It Out
Daughter-In-Law C
"My daughter went down on top
and she came up on top," Tom
Carroll, white man of Roanoke
township, said with apparent pride
as he told in Recorder's court on
Monday morning of the fight that
took place between his daughter,
Mrs. Pauline Burnet, and daughterin-law,
Mrs. Willie Carroll.
ACCllSPri hv Mrc Willie rioprnll of
taking pait in the fracas in behalf
of his daughter, the father said
that he did not "tetch" them but
one time and that was to keep
Belle (Mrs. Willie Carroll) from
pulling out all of Pauline's hair.
When asked by Judge Taylor why
he did not stop the fight, Carroll
replied: "They been had it in for
one another for some time and I
figured they might as well get it
out of their system; I won't going
to let them kill one another."
Replying to a question from the
bench as to why they stopped fighting,
the witness said: "They just
fout' 'till they 'gin out,' and be- ;
came reconciled to one another, I
reckon. They got up off the
ground with Belle pulling Pauline's ,
Pair and Pauline pulling Belle's i
Pair and that's the way the fight ;
ended." ]
Although not originally included ]
in the warrant charging assault

Jeffress To Spend
Funds In Warren
Pointing out that it was a gentleman's
agreement years ago that the i
road from Warrenton to Liberia |
should be treated and stating that 1
it is understanding that the High- j
svay Commission has expressed Its i
intentions of completing two other <
projects in the county when funds ,
aecame available, Congressman j
John H. Kerr, in a letter to E. B. ,
Jeffress, calls attention to the fact \
;hat about $11,000,000 has been ap- ,
propriated for roads in North Caro- j
lina and expressed the hope that a t
part of this money will be used to
complete the three projects in War- ,
ren county. A copy of his letter to (
Vfr. Jeffress is given below: (
Washington, D. C.,
June 18, 1934. :
Hon. E. B. Jeffress, (
Chairman, State Highway ,
Raleigh, North Carolina. j
Vly dear Mr. Jeffress: (
Now that it appears that there
vill be made available about $11,>00,000
for our North Carolina ;
roads, I want to call your attention
specially to three projects that I 1
jnderstoocl would be completed in '
Warren County in the event this J
ippropriation was available.
The first project is to put a J
shoulder on the road from War- J
enton to Liberia and crown this '
r\ar* oc win Hirt that section be
;ween Warrenton and Norlina. 1
rhere was a gentleman's agree- 1
nent that this should be done some ^
fears ago and it should not be negected
any longer.
The second project is that there '
vas alloted to the town of Warren- 1
;on $3,000 for street improvements, *
and I hope that that can be in- 1
creased now to $3,000 more and take (
:are of the terrific highway traffic 1
over these town streets.
The third project is that you
ivill complete and prown the Warrenton-Louisburg
road through our
county. '
I hate to be eternally after you j
gentlemen, but I have had contact
about these projects and I know
that they ought to be completed,
and I know that you agree with me
that these agreements should now
be carried out.
With sentiments of high esteem
and best wishes,, I am, 1

defendant in the action before the
case was concluded.
The fight between the two women
was brought about by Mrs. Pauline
Burnet whipping two of Mrs. Willie
Carroll's children out of a cherry
tree, according to Mrs. Willie Carroll;
however there was some evidence
that bad feeling had been 1
brewing between the women for
some time. 1
The women, each armed with
sticks, according to some of the
witnesses, went together in the 1
Dath leading to the well. As the
fight got under way, Mrs. Willie 1
Carroll's small son ran to the 1
house and got a shotgun and ;
threatened to kill Mrs. Pauline
Burnet and Tom Carroll; however, 1
the gun was not fired.
According to Mrs. Willie Carroll's 1
testimony and the story told by her '
two small sonsf Tom Carroll assisted
his daughter in the fight by
pulling Mrs. Willie Carroll off of
Mrs. Pauline Burnet every time she
had the advantage. Carroll denied
this testimony, stating that the
only thing he did was to keep Mrs.
Carroll's son from joining in and to
make Belle stop pulling Pauline's
hair once when she was about to
pull it all out. '

s no doubt that the bill will be
signed since it has the full approval
of the Department of Agriculture
( which regardi it as more desirable
than the s.milar Bankhead

The department's last objections
a the bill were removed when the
Senate included in its several
intendments to the bill two of
which had been urged by the dejartment.
One of these removed the

upon the sale of all tobacco

Under that amendment the
amount of additional tax exempt

Kerr Honored At
Party Convention
Congressman John H. Kerr was
lonored at the Dsmocratic convention
in Raleigh yesterday when he,
with R. L. Doughton, chairman of
the Ways and Means committee,
supposedly the most powerful committee
in Congress, was invited by
Ambassador Jose;>hus Daniels, who
was serving as temporary chairman
at the gathering, to escort LInsey
Warren, Congressman from the
first congressional district, to the
rostrum after Mr. Warren had
been made permanent chairman of
the convention.
The convention, according to last
night's Raleigh limes, was a most
peaceful gathering from the time it
Dpened in the sweltering heat of
Memorial auditorium through the
three hour session, with full endorsement
being given to the Ehringhaus
administration and its
policies, and discussion of such
controversial matters as the general
sales tax and state liquor control
being avoided.
Former Governor Cameron Morrison,
who made the keynote address,
read his speech, stealing
clear, according to The Times, of

themselves and founded the cry for

$750 Needed To Complete
Construction of New
Library Building
Seven hundred and fifty dollars
is needed for the completion of
Warren County Memorial Library.
William T. Polkf president of the
organization, and C. A. Tucker,
secretary-treasurer, pointed out this
week to a representative of The
Warren Record in the hope that
publicity on the financial status of
the educational and recreational institution
would cause public-spirited
citizens of the town and county
to make donations for the completion
of the building.
This money is needed, according
to Mr. Polk and Mr. Tucker, to take
care of outstanding bills and to pay
for screens, lighting equipment,
basement repairs, and materials
which have advanced in prices due
to code regulations, making the
total cost of the library exceed the
original estimate by around $350.
No house-to-house canvass is expected
to be made for funds, but it
is hoped that friends of the library
will make contributions in order
that the building may be completed
| as soon as possible, it was said.
Those willing to make donations are
asked to contact either W. H. Dameron,
Stephen E. Burroughs or John
Mr. Tucker stated that he was
aware of the fact there are some
people on farms now who would
like to help the library but are financially
cramped at this time. He
said these people could help In
other ways, suggesting that several
loads of rich dirt and stable manure
could be used for planting shrubbery
around the building. A list of
those making donations as well us
the names of those contributing in
other ways towards the completion
of the library will be published at a
later date.
When the building is completed,
Warren county will have a library
building that cost its citizens about
$2200 and estimated from a financial
standpoint to be worth around
eight or nine thousand dollars. Tht-j
fact is made possible through aid
