Enters Upon Third Term as
Superior Court Judge
Judge Clayton Moore, of thi* place,
was re-appointed yesterday by O. Max
Gardner as one of the (our special
superior court jurist* in the State. Ap
pointed by ex-Governor McLean back
in 1927, Judge Moore will enter upon
his third term next Wednesday, that
term to expire two years from now.
The governor and the jurist have
been close friends for a number of
years, and during the past legislature
Mr. Moore strongly favored Mr. Gar
dner's stand on certain important is
. Just after Governor McLean went
into office in 1925, the legislature
passed a statute providing (or the ap
pointment of special judges to hold
single terms of court. That act re
mained in force for only two years,
and the 1927, session provided for the
appointment of not less than four nor
more than six full-time special judges.
The law was re-enacted without change
in 1929 and against ni 1931.
When the act became effective Judge
Moore was appointed, along with
Judges N. A. Townsend, T. C. Bowis
and H. Hoyle Sink. Judge Bowie re
signed because of the failure of Gov
ernor McLean to promote him to the
regular judgeship of his district when
a vacancy occurred. Judge Mcßae
succeeded Judge Bowie and about the
same time Judge Harwood was ap
pointed a« a fifth judge.
In reappointing all of • the incum
bents and in refusing to make the two
additional appointments which are op
tional under the law, Governor Gard
ner disappointed the reputed aspira
tions of several members of the State
Senate, who had been assigned the
places by rumor, whether through fail
ure to reappoint or the filling of the
other places, or both.
"In view of the present conditions
of the court calendar and the lack of
demand for special courts, together
with the relief of litigation offered by
the Industrial Commission, I am con
vinced that there is no necessity for the
State to incur the expense of two ad
ditional judges at this time," stated the
Governor in announcing the appoint

several people in this community" dur
ing the past few weeks by Mr. J. G.
Staton, whe is greatly interested in
the work, Mr. Moore stated.
The pheasant, one of the prettiest
of the game birds, has been very
scarce in this jiart of the State, but
now the bird is multiplying rapidly
and promises to be one of the main
wild birds. To what extent the pheas
ant will become one of the main game
birds depends upon the continued in
terest of sportsmen. Many of the
fowls have been released in this county
during the past few. weeks by Wardens
Moore and Hin£s, it was stated.

AS MEASURE OF
Practice Limits Expense
and Likely Cause A
Many farmers in Robersonville
Township are planning to pull and
throw away the few bottom leaves of
tobacco this season, according to. a
story appearing in the Robersonville
Weekly Herald this week. The paper
stated that it was reliably learned that
a number of the leading farmers there
would support the movement.
That the method will result in an
increased price of tobacco is not cer
tain. But ,ji is advanced by those who
Have recorded the costs of growing
tobacco from year to year that the
practice, of removing and throwing a
way the few bottom leaves from every
stalk of tobacco will result in a sav
ing to the grower. Expense in han
dling and marketing the almost wortn
less leaves will be greater than the
No farmer is advised to pull and
throw away what is commonly known
as his first primings, bu for the sake
of economy, and as a factor in de
creased production, it is certainly ad
visable for him to destroy those leaves
at the bottom, which have touched the
ground or have been bruised in plow
Following the action of the legi*la-|
ture, in which , the tobacco companies
held their own, it is believed that they
can not afford to pay small prices for
the crop this year, provided there isn't
a big production for them to howl a
bout. And if there is a big production,
they will surely howl. And while the
individual farmer will profit by throw
ing away the bottom leaves,, he will
profit even more if all farmers throw
away theirs, for on the one hand he has
limited his housing and marketing ex
pense and on the other hand he is
subject to a better price on account o!
smaller production. In short, it would
be a blessing to the farmers of this
State to follow the practice wholeheart

Mr. J. L. Colt rain Among
First To Pull Tobacco
The first of the 1931 tobacco crop
in this county was pulled this week,
but it was not housed.' Mr. Joshua L
Coltrain, working on the well-suppoit
ed theory that the practice would save
him money and that a combined action
on the part of farmers might result
in a price increase for the remainder
of the crop, pulled an average of four
leaves from every stalk of tobacco
planted on his farm in Williams Town
There might be some danger in pull
ing the few bottom leaves too early,
but Mr. Coltrain's crop is well ad
vanced and the practice will not dam
age the tobacco.

IN THIS COUNTY
SAID TO BE GOOD
Many Farmers Cultivating
Tobacco Crops for Last

Although June is not quite gone,
the month has been a comparatively
dry one, the condition being very fa
vorable to farming, according to re
ports coming from some of the most
successful farmers in this section.
f Plows have been rapidly turning
thousands of tons of dirt in the fields
of the county during the past few
weeks, and the general crop conditions
are described as good. Some farmers
are cultivating their tobacco crops f. r
the last time this week, and it will be
a matter of only a few more days be-,
fore curing is started in this immedi
'"The corn crop in our community
is unusually good," Mr. lluck Rober

few broken places in the fields," Mr.

recent days, and the condition of tli j

and for the same period in past >ears'
is that of Mr. J. T. Uamhill on the

To Provide For County

members present. Mrs. W. H. l.illcy,
a member from Jamesville, was pres

made her annual report, which showed
that the total receipts of the club (or
the past year were $586.68, and the
total disbursements $535.42. This a
mount has all gone to work of a. civic
nature, and it has done a great deal
of good in this community.
A motion was carried to. have a
committee from the club ask the min
isters of the town to join them and
ace—the county commissioners at their
next meeting afiout having a full Thin
welfare officer for the county.
In view of the fact that Mrs. Staton
has donated the use of one of her
offices for the purpose of a public
reading room and what may he termed
the nucleus for a public library for
this community, a motion was made
by the club to support ami cooperate
with Mrs. Staton and the other iudi
viduals who are assisting her in such
a worthy work. A committee was ap
pointed to solicit books and furuijh
