VOLUME XXX—NUMBER 26'
Last Meeting of
Woman's Club
Until Next Fail
Membership Is Divided
Into Three Groups
Wednesday
(By The Club Beporter)
The Woman's Clttb had its regular 1
and last meeting until the fall on
Wednesday afternoon, May 26. The I
meeting was not as well attended as J
was hoped. However, several items
of business were attended to.
The resolution passed by the club
relative to discontinuing the dances,
unless chaperoned by the club, was
read. The ban on dances, except club
dances, will be lifted on June 27. It
is hoped that the finance committee
will arrange to have a club dance
some time »oon.
Mr. B. S. Courtney was present'at
this meeting and made the club a
very attractive offer on a phono
graph, but on account of the present
debt on the club rooms it was decid
not to consider buying any kind
of machine just now.
The club was offered the fair book
">r this year, and the offer was ac
cepted. The finance committee has
already begun work on this book. Mrs
P. B. Cone was appointed chairman of
'the committee to solicit advertise
ments. The club also decided to ask
the finance committee to have a cake
contest right away, allowing the mon
ey to be put into the club treasury.
These contests are put on by a manu
facturer of lard, and it should be an
interesting occasion.
The whole membership of the club
was earnestly urged to register, so
they will be able to vote in the school
election which is to be held on July
Eth. If the majority of the qualified
voters vote in favor of bringing into
this school district the three schools,
WHtleys, Biggs, and Burroughs, it
will mean for our school a larger at
tendance, which wollhi mean that we
would be entitled to more teachers in
our local faculty, a broader scope of
instruction to be offered to the pu
pils, and an up-to-date high school
building in the near future. This
election, if carried, will not affect'any
body, so far as ta£es are concerned,
in Williamston, unless they own prop
erty outside the school district. If
this election is carried, it will mean
that our school progress rapidly.
We can not afford not to vote for this
extension. Mr. Roy Griffin will reg
ister you at the Farmeis Supply Co.
Be sure to register and help pull for
your echool.
The club was divided into three
groups, as follows:
Group 1: Mrs, J. D. Biggs, first
chairman; Mrs. Z. 11. Rose, second
chairman; Mrs. L. B. Harrison, third

Officer Says Few Stills
In Williams Township
I'eputy Sheriff Grimes says that
liquor stills are very scarce in Wil
lie ms township. The officer bases his
statement on a careful hunt covering
a large portion of the territory yes
terday when he searched swamps,
branches, hill* and dales and only
found one insignificant 60-gallon still
and two barrels of beer.
The still was 4 way back in a big
thicket near the "Woods Yard".
No one was near when the officer
and his party arrived, but they found
a path showing that some one had
been there, and while they were un
able to say who the operator was,
they could ruess by the direction of
the path.
Williamston, Martin County, North Carolina, Friday, May 27, 1927
given as much attention as it de
serves, and the fair management
is particularly anxious for farm
ers, truckers, and gardeners to
fall in line and display the larg
est line of agricultural exhibits
ever shown in a fair here. There
is a cash premium for nearly
everything one can think of, and
you are urged to begin now to

For Overdrafts
A 25-Cent Charge Will
Be Made by All the
County's Banks
The several bunks of the county
will shortly be making a charge of
2i~> cents for checks drawn against in
sufficient funds according to announce
ments already made by the cashiers.

here will put the charge into effect
the first of next month while the
Bunk of Robersonville and the Plant
ers anil Merchants at Everetts will
upply the charge beginning the. 10th
of next month. The county's other
two.banks will make a similar charge,

charge will go into effect. . ( —
According to several of the batik's
cashiers, the charge is a most reason
able one, bringing no revunue what
ever to the banks.-The charge is in?
stituted mainly with the hope of caus
ing depositors to be more careful
when checking against their accounts,
and to cover the expense of handling
such checks when drawn. It is to be
understood tliat this charge does not
apply to any check when there are
sufficient funds to the depositor's ac
count ut the bank.

Tat Listing in
County Makes
Slow Progress
Real Estate Valuation
Is Expected to Be
Less This Year
County tax-list takers report con
tinued slow progress in the listing of
taxes. While the reports were not
available from all the list takers yes
terday, several of the takers reported
that hardly more than half the people
had listed their property. Two of
the list takers stated that it would be
impossible to list all the taxes in tho
few remaining,, da,to. Just what will
be done when the time expires is not
known. The law regulating the list
ing of taxes provides a penalty for
those who fail to see that their taxes
appear on the books.
Much speculation is going on rela
tive to the outcome of the present val-
No authentic information
can be had on the subject, but it is
generally conceded that drop in the
valuation can be expected. The drop
"Will be found mainly in real estaU
valuation, it is thought' Personal
property is said to be holding its own
in the majority of caseß, with a slight
decrease here and there. One town
ship official reported that its person

in real estate listing. ,

ESTABLISHED 1898
Sinajl Increase In the
Number of Pounds
Expected
• '
By W. T. MEADOWS
From the best information available
i the intended acreage of tobacco over
that of last year adjacent to the Wil
liamston market at the time of sow
j ing the plant beds was about as fol
j lows: Martin-County, 15 per cent in
■ crease; Beaufort Coun y, 10 percent;
I Washington County, 25 per cent;
Chowan County, 50 per cent; Hertford
County, 20 per cent; and Bertie, 20
per cent.
You will notice that I stated this
increase in acreage was based upon
the intended acreage when the beds
were prepared. But since the acre
age has been planted, and when con
sidering the poor stands ami the a
rnnint of resetting, which will cer
tainly give "us some late common to
bacco, I believe increase as in
tended can be cut one-half.
The rain Wednesday was the first
we have had in several weeks, and
the farmers have had a hard time
trying to got their tobacco to live, es
jKeially is (hia true with the farm
ers who had to rest sine the season
we had several weeks ago. In many
' cases,, farmers have--1 ra nsp lan ted two
| ami three plants to the hill, hoping
j that one of them, would live. Cut
worms and wire worms have been very
■ bad, ami 1 hear a few complaints of
j the tobacco set in April having a ten
' deticy to run up and bud out while
i very J,w,w. With these conditions ex
, isting, an increase in pounds ccn not
i be expected to be as great as it was •
| ot.ee thought it would be.
farmers l>oing \l| They Can
Our farmers are doing all they can
to put their tobacco in an A-l con
dition, and all the farmers in this
section are hard to beat when it
ccmes to knowing what to do with a
stalk of tobacco.
The crop in Georgia is reported not
jto be so good. South Carolina's crop
| is looking fairly well, the crop there
I having a better prospect than the one
[in Georgia. The situation in China
is reported good, that country taking
i mere.tobacco than at any time in the
| piist years:
| I will try to give more detailed in
formation on the foreign situation
al-.o on the bright-belt State, within
' the next few days. Right now it
looks as if there will be very little
I I increase, if. any, in the number of
1 1 pounds as compared with iust year's
I crop.
