INTEREST GROWS
IN POLITICS WITH
THREE ENTRIES
Eason Lilley, E. H. Angc,
Joe Martin Announce for
Board of Education
•
Interest in county politics was in
creased this week when Mr. Joe Msr
tin, Jamesville man, filed with the chair
man of the board of elections advanc
ing his candidacy for the nomination
as a member of the Martin County
Board of Edacation. While s contest
for seats on the educational board is
not yet created, one is pending, and
it ia believed that one will develop be
fore the time for filing is spent. >
There are three vacancies on the
board to b filled this year, and it is
understood that the three men, Messrs
J. Eason Lilley, E. H. Ange, and J.
W. Eubank* will seek their renomina
tious. When questioned this week,
Mr. Eubanks ssid he had not definitely
decided whether he would seek the
nomination or not, but that he was
considering the matter. Mr. Esson ,
Lilley filed his notice of candidacy yes
terday, and Mr. Ange formally an
nounced his candidacy today.
Political activities are moving along
very quietly in the county, the candi
dates apparently carrying on secret
campaigns. Interest in politics is at a
low ebb, as far as the casusl citizen is
concerned, it seems. There are only
two weeks before the time for filing is
Spent, and the primary is less than a
month away.
The political roster at the present
is as follows: v
For register of 4eeds: J. Sam Get
singer and Lucian Hardison.
For recorder's court judge: Ben
Riddick and Hertyfcrt O. Ptel.
For solicitor rlcorder's court: Jos.
W, Bailey and \V. Hubert Coburn.
For sheriff: C. B. Roebuck.
For coroner: 3. Rome Biggs.
For county commissioners: Messrs.
T. C. Griffin, of Griffins; Van G. Tay
lor, Cross Roads; Joshua L. Coltrain,
Williams; Jno. E. Pope, Williamston;
and H. C. Green, Bear Grass.
For county board of education:
Messrs. J. Esson Lilley, Joe Martin,
and E. H. Ange.
For treasurer: C. A. Harrison.
For representative in the General
Assembly: J. Calvin Smith, of Rober

Registration for Primary Is
Going Forward Slowly,
Registrars Report
Very few names have been added to
the electorate in this county since the
books were opened last Saturday, ac
cording to reports received here from
several of the registrars. About 20
names have been added to the list in
this precinct, Registrar Luther Peel
said this week, and eigh or ten have
been added in Goose Nest, Registrar
J. W. Hines reported. Even smaller
registrations have been reported in the
other precincts.
Residents of the county becoming
21 years of age by next November, it
is understood, are privileged to vote
in the primary next month, provided,
of course, they register on or befori
May 21. All citixens who have voted
in a general election need not register
again, as they are already eligible to
vote in the primary and general elec
tion. However, for one to vote in the
primary and election he must show he
has been a resident of the state for
two years, a resident of the county for
six months and a resident of the pre
cinct in which he desires to vote four
months or more. A person moving
from one county or precinct to anoth
er has to register to vote in that pre
cinct, giving consideration to the resi
dence requirements.
Sunday Services At The
Local Christian Church

Rev. J. M. Perry, Pastor.
Mother's Day service at the Chris
tian church Sunday morning at 11 o'-
clock. Appropriate aongs, mixed quar
tet, "Tell Mother I'll Be There," and
"Mother's Bible," by the choir. The
pastor will preach on, "Who'll An
swer God's Prophet?" This deals with
a question that has perhaps never been
answered, and we may all be guilty of
the very thing that brought about the
aad plight. We see it in every town,
and right in our midst. You wilt enjoy
the service throughout. Bring your
friends along. Evening service at 8
o'clock. The pastor will preach on
"The Hopeful Side of the Last Judg
ment." If you are interested in great
Biblical questions, have interest in the
future, and believe in a judgment, you
are certain to appreciate this message.
Wear a red rose jf your mother is
living and e white rose if she has gone
on to the other side of the river. This
Mother's Day Service will be differ
ent. Don't mias it. Public cordially
invited to all service*.

mately that amount. The differ
ence in die number of unpaid ac
counts and the amounts is to be
taken into consideration for prop
erty owners were allowed six more
months in which to pay their
taxes.
It is believed thst a substantial
amount will be collected between
now and next month, when the
board directed the delinquents to
be advertised. Several thousand
dollars were collected last Satur
day, Monday, and Tuesday, and
the outlook for continued collec
tions is not so disheartening, it

IMPROVED MAIL
SCHEDULES ARE
BEING SOUGHT
m
New Schedule out of Rocky
Mount Being.Planned
By the Government
>
A new mail schedule between Kocky
Mount Williamston daily except
Sunday is now pending, it was learned
from Postmaster Jesse T. Price at the
local office yesterday. This new and
said to he better schedule is being
considered because the discontinuance
of the star route to and from Wash
ington is being proposed as a result
of a change in bus schedules. At the
present time private conveyance is han
dling the mails over the Williamston-
Washington route.
Under the proposed Rocky Mount-
Williamston schedule, mails sent out
of Rticky Mount at 6:30 in the morn
ings will arrive here at 8 o'clock, or
about 15 minutes earlier than the pres
ent schedule. Mails will he dispatched
at 7:30 in the evenings, an hour and
one-half ahead of the present sched
ule.
Efforts are being made by the local
postmaster to have special delivery
pnd special handling packages includ
ed in the contract provided the new
schedule is established.
It is understood that the bus oper
ators are very anxious to have the
change effected so that the mails can
be handled by scheduled busses in and
out of Rocky Mount and not at ad
ditional expense in and out of Wash
ington by special conveyance.
