Glves Credit to New-
Laws Which Became
Effective July Ist
In expressing the belief that acci
dents on North Carolina highways
have decreased since the new uniform
motor vehicle code went into effect
July 1, C. W. Roberts, vice president
of the Carolina Motor Club, today an
nounced that the organization will
make permanent a $25 reward for in
formation leading to the conviction of
motorists who injure persons and fail
Two months ago the club offered
SSO for ;he arrest and conviction of
"hit and run" drivers, and four re
wards, totaling S2OO, have been paid.
Ir. the four convictions only one de
fendant was forced to serve a jail
"We have been convinced," said Mr.
Roberts, "that this reward has caused
many drivers to stop at the point of
accident, as required by law, and we
hope and believe it will eliminate'
many accidents. In furtherance of
this belief the Carolina Motor Club
Will continue to pay a reward of $25
to any one who ascertains identity of
n 'hit-and-run* driver and secures a
conviction. We interpret a 'hit-and
run' driver as one who injures a per
son with a motor vehicle and refuses
to stop. .
"Since tlie new law \fcUit into elTec'
a record of all highway accidents is
required and while this will show a
greater number of accident r.'poft
•4), in my opinion, the actual number
has been greatly decreased. Former
ly all accidents were not recorded,
and I do not believe there are near as
many now as in the past.
"There has been a most noticeable
improvement in headlights on cars on
the highways, and likewise a more
videspread use of rear lights. I be
lieve there is an improvement of 50
per cent already, and this percentage
will constantly mount. I find that
wagons, however, as a general rule,
are not yet complying with the law
requiring use of reflectors or lights at
light, and since the law went into ef
fect there have been several serious
accidents due to failure of horse
druwn vehicles to display lights or

times. Junt who cut (ieorge no one
will tell, and George, being slightly
irtoxicated, do?R not know himself.
An argument started when he told
several other negroes that he did not
want to put fire in the furnace of tho
barn un'il Monday morning. The
other parties started a fire in the
furnace, and Washington pulled it
out. Another, fire was started and
Washington pulled that one out. He
hud not pulled many more out before
several colored boys around the barn
rushed him and sliced him with a
He was brought here, where Dr. J.

Man, 71, Charged With
Whipping Wife, 17;
Recorder's court today presented a
scene of interest, as well as hopeful
ness. The fe.w. people present indicat
ed the advent of a better day. There
were only 25 people present, and but
one woman among them, This num
ber included tlv court, the officer:-,,
attorneys; in fuct, it embraced the
Ihe first case called
Joseph J l '. Davenport, forged with
whipping his wife. He ie 71 years
old, while his wife is but 17.
The only witness in the case was
Mrs. Davenport, who stated that her
lusband did whip, her slightly, u
mounting to nothing more than a gen
tle "brushing," and that he" did not
hurt her in the least. Mie said the
only weapon used was a small birch
\ hip. The best part of her testimony
came when she frankly said that her
11u.baud did right, that, he ctight t >
have whipped her, us ah' called him
a liar and deserved a 'whipping.
The court caught the fine spirit of
family reunion and susp aided judg
ment upon the husband u, mi the con
dition of his payii'ig the cost utd be
having well in the future.
The couple had a child, from ap
pearance about a year ol I. Although
the transposition of the ngures from
71 to 17 makes a difference of 54, the
companionship of the pair seems to
l>e almost perfect.

! weevil is scattered over practically
j tr.t entire belt, from the Kio (irandu

i In a large area in Texas the infes

it only ran about 4 per cent.
In Louißiuna in some of the good
tottop sections, infestation Is report
ed as high as 20 per cent.
In Mississippi the pest in some.sec

worse than last year.
In Alabama examinations of the
percentage of punctured squares aver
aged from 17 to 20 per cent, which
vas almost the same in South Caro

For our immediate section, the COB
