VITAL STATISTICS
ARE REPORTED
FOR HAMILTON
Birth Rate Higher, Death
Rate Lower Than State
Average
Reporting ten illegitimate births
last year, Hamilton Township (in
cluding the town itself) is second
with the largest number of "un
known" papas, the district being sec
ond to Williamston where 15 dis
graceful birts were recorded in the
public records of Martin County for
the future generations to see. Three
of the illegitimate births were re
ported among white people.
Other than the large percentage of
illegitimate births, the vital statistics
for the town and township are similar
to those in the six other districts for
which reports have been filed in the
county .register of deeds' office. The
birth rate in both the township and
town are higher than the one for the
> State as a whole. The township death,
rate is slightly under and the town
death rate is slightly greater than that
for the State.
There were 58 births,' 22 White and
36 colored, reported n the township
last year, the number including those _
in Hassell, for which no separate
records were maintained! Twenty
deaths, eight among white and 12 a
mong colored people, were reported
irir the township. Hamilton proper
reported four white births, one illegi
timate, and seven colored ones, one I
of which was illegitimate. The eight
deaths were equally divided among
the races.
Death rates for both the town and ,
township during last year were low- i
er'Hhan they were the year before,;
with the birth rates for the two units j
remaining about the same as they
were in 1930.
The 1931 rates per 1,000 population:

More Than SI,OOO, Says
Home Agent
By Miss LORA E. SLEEPER
The curb market has been running
11 months this Saturday. During that

farmer, we help every one. Prices
on produce this week will be as fol
low* (this, however is only a'partial]
list);
Collards (special), 7 pounds for 10
cents, this week only; cream
20c per quart this week only; eggs,
9 cents per dozen; hens, live, 14 cents
pound; hens, dressed, 25 cents pound;
broilers, 17 cents pound; broilers,
dressed, 27 cents pound; turnips, 4
pounds 10 cents rutabagas, 3 pounds
5 cents; corn meal, 20 cents peck; and
cakes, 15 to 18 cents pound.
Last week we had spring onions on
the market and early flowers. We are
anxious to please our patrons, take
orders through the market, or help in
any way possible to make the market
better serve the town and community.
Tell us, if you have suggestions. We

Yesterday
Louis Keys and Will Smith, color

jailed here _.by Officers Sexton and
Goylord. The plant, in full opera

Going to the manufacturing scene
early yesterday morning, the officers
were closing in on the plant and its
imperatives when an old hog started
: making her way to the filthy swill.
I The officers took a stand and remain
ed quiet. When the animal advanced
j nearer the still, the two men, mistak

! remained inactive and after a long
j wait, Keys returned and saw the hog
; drinking beer. He called Smith and
j after running the animal away, they
returned to their manufacturing, di
recting unkind remarks at the old
hog, but at the same timt expressing
joy that it was an animal and not of
; ficers.
' After waiting a few more minutes,
; the officers continued their advance.
I "There comes that old hog again. I

operatives said to the other when he
i mistook the officers for the hog. v

FIFTY FARMERS
IN THIS COUNTY
ASK FOR LOANS
Blanks and Instructions Are
Expected Latter Part of
Next Week
More than 50 farmers in this coun
ty have asked for loans from the Fed-
Ofal government already, it was learn
ed from T. B. Brandon, farm agent,
this week. But no loans have been
made and none will be made before
the latter part of next week, or until
proper blanks aud instructions for ad
vancing the loans are received by the
Tounty agent, Mr. Brandon.
Returning from Washington, D. C.,
this week, Dean I. O. Schaub, director
of the State College Agricultural Ex
tension Service, said:
"lhe loans this year wil be avail
able for farmers throughout the entire
State they are unable to
finance themselves. They will also be
made largely through the county farm
agent system and local communities
as they were last year. In those coun
ties having no agents, county commit
tees will be set up with the counties
bearing at least part of the expense.'
Mr. Schaub said, the Extension Serv
ice has no funds with which to finance
the operations of these, committees.
He indicated alio that the applications
for loans will be scrutinized more care
fully this year than they were in 1931.
"W'e shall'urge farmers making ap
plications for these loans to plan to
make a crop this year with the least
possible expense," said Dean Schaub.
"The individual loans must be kept
small, because at present there is only
$50,000,000 to be loaned to farmers all
over the United States, and the gov
ernment is concerned that-these loans
be made available over the entire coun
try. Those obtaining the loans must
keep in mind also that they must be
paid back.
The Dean also says that no loans
will be made to any aplicant who has
means of livelihood other than farm
ing, nor to a minor. No loan will be
made to any person who did not op
erate a farm in J931. Neither will a
loan be made to a person who will
not agree to grow only 65 per cent
of the acreage of cotton and tobacco
. which he grew in 1931, with the ex
ception of ti;e person who grew only
10 acres of cotton juuLthree acres of
tobacco last year. In other words,
said Mr, Schaub, the man who grew
20 acres of cotton last year must agree
to reduce his crop by 35 per cent this
ye*r before he will be permitted to
share in the loan money. The same
is true of tobacco. It he grew only
10 acres of Cotton, or three acres of
tobacco, he will not required to
reduce this amount further.
The loans will bear 5 1-2 per cent
interest and are secured by notes with
a mortgage on the crop as collateral, i
1 he crop must be grown according to
the instructions of the county agent.
1 he Dean said that as quickly as the
necessary blanks are printed in Wash
ington they will be forwarded to the
county agents and the county
tees.** He is at work now on the ma
chinery of operating placement of the
loans, )
SMALL ADVANCE
IN PEANUT PRICE
Norfolk Broker Says Price
Would Go Up More If
Nuts Kept Off Market
•— -
A stronger tone in the peanut mar
ket was noted this week when the
Columbian Company here offered as
high as 2 cents a pound for certain
grades.
In the opinion bf one Norfolk Com
mission merchant, the price of peanuts
would advance over half a cent a
! pound if the holders would refuse to
sell for 30 days. The commission
house added, "The move.ment »of the
1931 crop has been but the
market will not advance as long as
holders continue to'supply the trade'
at prices under 2 cents a pound for
-medium-grede*.- 'There are fewer pea
nuts in Suffolk than on March 1 of
any year in the past ten."

EARLY TOBACCO
TRANSPLANTING
APPEARS.LIKELY
■' 11 *
Most Favorable Season for
Plant Beds So Far
. Since 1925
. > .-N> •
Tobacco plants- are up and growing
all over section,- indicating that
all records for an early transplanting
season will lie broken and a new high
on? established this season. How-'
ever, Weather conditions might 'change
and delay an expected early "setting"
season.
Experiencing delays, can ed by un
favorable weather conditions and short
ages of plants, farmers in this section,
as a whole, -have not had an ideal or
an fiuiy transplanting season since
1925, when the crop was"transplanted
and retransplarttetk. where -necessary
before the month i>i April was spent.
With weather conditions continuing as
favorable to plant growth as they have
been most of the present season, the
growers-will star! their transplanting
work earlier thUyar, or equally a-i
early as they did-'in 1925, be
lieved. Records shows that a quality
crop of tobacco was raised that year.
The plants are not very large at
this time, but present indications point
to a plentiful as well as an early crop
of plants.
"And what do you think about the
size of th etobacc-o crop for 1931 ,in
your setjtjon?" Mr. T. H; Slade, big
Hamilton Township .farmer, was ask
ed one day this week.
"You can't expect a -very big de
crease or even a small decrease where
the-crop hardly averages two acres to
the horse," he replied. " The crop will
either have to be abandoned altogeth
er or continued at about its present
acreage," Mr. Slade believed.

Family day is being observed at the
Baptist church at the morning service

The plan is a very simple one. The
pastor is asking that the membership
of the church come to the service by
families, and sit together in family
groups in the pews.
There ig nothing finer from the
church standpoint than seeing entire
family groups sitting together through

this will be 'an interesting service.
And the membership is expected to
be present in unusually large numbers.

! Favors State Support of 6-
| Months School Term and
Prope ty Revaluation
Revenue provision should march sjor
ernmental requirements, but the bond
ed the State should
not be increased except only if re
quired to meet some pressing and un
foreseen emergency, according to J.
i I . B. Ehringhaus, of Elizabeth City,
a candidate for governor of North
Carolina, subject ""to the Democratic
primary in. June.
"A strict but sane is im
peratively demanded, it is quite as
important to find where we can save
without loss of efficiency as to discov
er new sources of revenue for spend
ing. Proud as we are of North Car
olina's social progress. _we. ftuist re-,
member this can not precede, except
for a time, material progress. A tax
payer s dollar represents the patriotic
contribution of the brain, labor, and
sacrifice as welfas the 100 cents.
| "No new departments should be es
tablished, but rather let consolidations
and- eliminations, where practicable,
be the rule. Careful conservation of
i the State's credit, including helpful
supervision of local spending and bond
| issues, is imperative. I regard the
local government act of tlve last Gen
eral Assembly as an .outstanding »
achievement.
j "The short ballot issue is dormant.
'A commission has been appointed to
submit for popular consideration eith
er a new constitution or such amend- ;
ments as it might refcomrnend. We
should await their report :md the will,
!of the people in this matter,
I "If elected -governor, I shall,insist
■ upon an immediate return to our long
standing policy of quadrennial ias
! sessment. Real estate values are not
| static, nor can an arbitrary or fictitious
I valuation be justified. ' The way .must
Lbe opened Tor a quick revaluation.
'There can be no valid objection to the
tax books speaking the truth.
I "In determining tax policies, equity,
rather than exemption, should be our
1 aim. All oppressive shifting rather
| than lifting of taxes should be avoided.
I Full state support for the six-months
I school term and as liberal *upport as
our circumstances permit is pledged.
[ As soon as conditions make relief of
property from the 15-cent levy for six
| months support equitfibly possible, I
rshitH welcome that-, too, and urge its
accomplishments.
; "To take tax off o(J,and and put it
j (ill increased weight) rppn his back,
| affords no relief to the average man,
for the consumer pays the sales tax.
To , lighten the load oL the landed
proprietor, the owner ofpfofitable end
luxuriou - i jty property, or resident or
' non-resident possessor of estates, at
the expense of the impAurished lab
i orer, the back-broken tenant farmer,
and the hard-pressed 111 rchr.nt, does
I not square with my ide: .. of equitable
taxation.

small areas —25 or 50 acres—and own
j er-occupied homes to the extent of
1 the.homestead value with the provision
to prevent duplications in the same

"My conception of the ideal .gov
ernment is one which is administered
in economical efficiency and support
'ed by an equitable system of taxa
tion; which has a sense of proportion
enabling it properly to appraise every
demand upon its treasury or concern,
. and which counts in the category of
fundamentals,, the esaen". ial human
needs to which it must minister, rec
ognizing dependence upon agriculture
and industry.
"There should be continued insist

an added emphasis upon tl.e profitable
utilization of the v. a 'e areas in tim
' ber growing, game breeding, public
hunting preserves; a definite move
ment towards discovering new uses
and new markets for products; a real
effort towards reduction of the stag
gering fertilizer bills; and develop a
plan for cooperative, production.
