FORMALLY OPEN
NEW SIO,OOO CAMP
HERE MONDAY
Fifty-nine Prisoners Enter
Camp Here for the First
Time Late Yesterday
" North Carolina's new SIO,OOO high
way prison camp was officially opened
in this county near here yesterday aft
ernoon with 59 colored prisoners an
swering the roll call at the evening
meal, the first one served under rales
asd regulations of the Prison Board.
The opening, without formal pro
ceeding! of any kind other than in
■tractions from the State office, was
effected by Superintendent C. R. Mob
ley, assisted by Director J. W. Martin,
of Tarboro. Nine of the prisoners
were sent to the camp from this coun
ty, others coming from Halifax, Edge
combe, Pitt, Craven, ( and Washington
Counties. Additional prisoners will be
received durng the- course of the next
few weeks until around 75 are housed
in the camp near here, and they will
all be colored.
■ Today the prioners are working on
the camp grounds, preparing to plant
potatoes and other food crops. To
morrow, two, and probably three,
groups will .be put to work on the high
ways. It could not be learned just
where the prisoners would be used, as
> ■ their labor is directed by Enginer Pea
body, of-Washington. It
however, that one group will be work
ed in Bertie and the other two squads
will be used on the highways in this
county. Complete personnel for the
handling of the squads and the task of
the steward had not been announced
here yesterday, local authorities await
ing final appointments from Raleigh.
Each working day, weather permit
ting, the prisoners will be removed
from the camp at sunrise and returned
at sunset, the mid-day meal being serv
ed to them while on the roads. Visit
ing hours will be observed once each
month, probably on first Sundays.
WIND STORM HITS
SECTION MONDAY
•
No Great Property Damage
Here; Seven Are Killed
Alabama
A strong wind storm, lasting nearly-*
18 hours, swept over this section late!
Sunday nighi and Monday, but, as far 1
as it could be learned here, no serious
damage resulted. A few shelters were
blown down ■ and a few trees fell on'
the main highways in this section in
the path of the storm.
Commenting on the storm, Levi
Hardison, Williams Township farmer,
said, "The wind was ablowing so hard
late Sunday night that I was afraid to
stay in the house and I was afraid to
go out all night. I just walked the
floor until early morning."
Down Alabama way, another cy-,
done struck, taking the lives of seven j
-people, injuring otheri and causing a'
substantial property loss. It is believ
ed thai the diaturbancet in that part
of the country were the direct cause
for the strong wind in this section.
T)ver in Washington, the Pamlico
was almost made dry by the west
winds blowing the water out and into (
sound. The Roanoke
lowered a few feet.

Thursday evening of this week at 6

No subjects for discussion were men
tioned in the announcement.
THE ENTERPRISE
MARY CHRISTMAS 4
Unusual and odd name* have
been thrust upon the newly-born
throughout tiic world, but the most
cheery name of them all was found
recently in old records filed in die
register of deeds' office for Mar
tin County. It was, Mary Christ
mas. Just imagine any ope wish
ing Mary Christmas a merry
Christmas.
The records in the courthouse
ahow that Mary Christmas trans
ferred a 5-sere tract of land to one
Benjamin Jones back in September
1006, receiving |lO. Investigat
the unusual name, it was learned
from Attorney Elbert S. Peel, who
was looking over some records in
the courthouse this week, that
Mary Christmas inherited the land
PLANNING NOW
TO CONSOLIDATE
MORE SCHOOLS
Only Three One-Teacher
Schools Now Operating
In Martin County
• —-
The further consolidation of schools
in North Carolina was advanced last
week when the State Board of Equal
izaton met in Raleigh and considered
the savings effected through consoli
dations of small schools during the
past year or two.
It is judged from this that the last
three of' Martin County's one-teacher
schools will end their usefulness in the
eyes of the State Board this term, the
consolidation of Macedonia, Griffins,
and Ultey's Hall with other schools in
the county resting in the hands of the
State Equalization Board. The con
solidation of these schools " will be
studied and worked out by the district
representative, it is understood. f
During the meeting of the State
Equalization Board in Raleigh last
week, Secretary Leroy Martin said
that the consolidations made this year
have proved increasingly popular and
that many more will be made next
year. The board this year made about
400 consolidations but rescinded some
of them. There are now 700 white
one-teacher schools left in the State
and about 150 high schools witlf two
and three teachers.
It is also possible, judging from the
secretary's statement, that the consoli
dation of some of the smaller high
schools in this county might be con
sidered. >

HON. TAM BOWIE
TALKS AT COURT
HOUSE MONDAY
•
Attacks Senator Morrison
In Address Made at >
Courthouse -
Speaking before a fair-sized crowd
assembled in the courthouse here yes
terday at noon, Judge Tam Bowie,
candidate for the United States Sen
ate nomination, attacked legislation
passed in behalf of the big interests
and pleaded for the cause of the farm
er and landowner. For 45 minutes,'
the orator from West Jefferson, Ashe
County, in the northwestern part of
the State, attacked his opponent, Cam
eron Morrison, and his activities in
the government. He did not mention
the other two men, Frank Grist and
Robert Reynolds, in the race for the
one seat in the Senate, but he openly
and boldly fired on Seantor Morrison.
"When Governor Gardner warned
against the revaluation of land, Mor
rison wired his approval," Mr. Bowie
reminded liis hearers. "When Gov
ernor Gardner favored a land tax for
State support of schools, Morrison
sanctioned the stand," Mr. Bowie said,
adding that Morrison did not want the
tax lifted frbm the land because he
knew it would fall on his tobacco and
power stocks.
I "Civilization today is in a bad way,
not because there is an overproduc
tion of goods, as many politicians
'would have you believe, but because
too many errors have been committed
and too much selfish legislation has
been passed in favor of the few," the
judge told his hearers.
I Governor Gardner's u Live-atHome"
policy was attacked, the speaker ask
ing his hearers where would the mil
lions who live in the cities be if the
tillers of the soil only raided enough
for their own use? There is an inter
dependence, he declared, and the pros
perity of every one is traceable to the
land. Then it i* a question of giving
the farmer a chance.
In appealing to his hearers, Mr.
Bowie said that he favored a revalua
tion of land, and that the schools
should be supported other than by tax
on lands. "The trouble has come be
cause you can't hide lan.d, and owners
of stocks, money and baqjjs have hid
den their holdings. And then men
have been sent to the House of Repre
sentatvei and to the Senate in Wash
ington who cared little about the wel
fare of the people who lent them.
Send men to represent you who will
establish prices for your farm products
and put them on the same foundation
now occupied by big business."
I Thinking that real estate was a
sound investment, Mr. Bowie said
that he had invested virtually all his
life's earnings in land, that he thought
it was a safe investment within itself
and safe for his children. "But if I
were to die today, my family iould
not pay the taxes on that land the first
year, for the burden is not fair to
Rind," he declared. > He warned that
we can expect no prosperity until land
l«;Tea{ored to its true value and the
farmer is assured a fair price for his
products,
"Ramive" tax from the soil, and tax
incomes," he pleaded in bringing his
speech to a tflose.
