GROSS LEWDNESS
IS UNCOVERED IN
ONE TOWNSHIP
•I * ,
People in Prrts of Griffins
and Jamesville All Agog
Over Low Practices
People in the northern part of Grif
fin* and a few in Jamesville Township
were all agog recently when immoral
•ity to its lowest stage was reported
there. "
Attention of welfare and county offi
cers were directed to a home where
the mother and her 13-year-old daugh
ter are said to have violated all the
laws of decency in their association
with men of all rank and file.
Many rumors have been circulated
connecting so-called prominent men of
the two districts with the lewd prac
tices reported there. Officers inves
tigating the case withheld all names,
but it was reliably reported that sev
eral of the men, stooping so low they
could walk under a bull frog with a
beaver hat on, were suffering ill ef
fects from the degrading and illicit as
sociations with the mother and her
little girl. %
When questioned late last Saturday
night bv officers, the mother denied
the charges, and stved the rumors
were not true. The little girl, well
developed for her tender age. was seen
late Saturday night with three men
and a small hoy along the Washington
and Jamesville Koad, but she could
not be found when the welfare officer
ordered her taken into custody pre-1
paratory to her removal to a correc
tional institution.
As,an outgrowth of the "stink", Ar- |
thur Lilley, middle age farmer of the '
community is said to have brutally'
treated his wife when she wartied him
to stay away from the mother and
daughter. Lilley was in the girl's
company at the home of Joe Godard,
a farmer of that community, when his
wife went there to interrupt a party i
and when he is said to have pushed
her out of the house and beat her. Lil-j
ley was arrested about 1 o'clock Sun-'
day morning and is being given a hear-1
ing before Judge Bailey in recorder's
court here today.
Janie Moore, the wayward girl was
taken into custody yesterday after-1
noon and is being held in jail here
awaiting her removal to Samarcand.
She told officer*, that she was planning
to marry Godard, a man 35 years or >
• probably older, this week, but that if
she had the opportunity she much pre-,
ferred to go to school. It was very ,
evident that the girl, the victim of
■nan's baseness, had never had one
opportunity to succeed in life.
With Lilley in jail, the girl on her
way to the correctional institution, (
and with the girl's associates now*
suffering ill effect*, apparently justice
is being administered rapidly in the,
case of a few parties, at least.

Making Preparations To
For close Tax Accounts
♦ - I
Nearly 300 tax accounts will be -fore,
closed in this county within the next
few day* for the tax year 1929, it was
learned yesterday from County At
torney E. S. Peel. Unless the taxes
and costs are paid within six months
after the foreclosure suits are brought,
judgments will be obtained and the
properties affected will be offered for
sale, it is understood.
The approximately 300 accounts
represent unpaid taxes amounting to
about SIO,OOO, H was estimated. The
foreclosures have' been postponed to
the limit, it was explained, and there
is no other course to follow except call
for judgments through the courts.

ROSTER OF ALL
WAR VETERANS
AIM OF LEGION
Veterans Urged to Forward
Their Names To W. E.
Dunn, Adjutant
An important request was made
this week by the adjutant of the John
Walton Hassell Post, American Re
gion, urging all World War veterans
to forward their names to him at Wil
liamston that a complete roster might
be had and recorded. All veterans are
earnestly asked to submit their own
names and the company in which they
served, and the names of any other
Martin County boys serving in the last
war.
| The importance of getting all World
j War Veterans' names was pointed out
| by Mr. W. E. Dunn, adjutaiA, when
jhe said that many Confederate vet
erans could never obtain pensions or
aid from the State because no record
of their names had ever been properly |
recorded.
During the past ten or twelve* years,
Clerk of Court R. J. Peel has studied
, from time to time the complete roster
of old Confederate soldier* in an ef
fort to establish the right to a pension.
. Some he found, and others Jie could
. not find, and in those cases where the
' companies could not be established, it
j was difficult to include the name of
, the applicant in the pension list. Many
widows of Confederate veterans, de
! serving of aid from the State, have
received a penny because the
i proper record* could not be establish
ed.
No records are available here show
ing how many Martin County boy 9
were in the service during the great
war, and while that in itself is not so
important, the recorded information
might be of marked value in later
year*. Forward your name, service
record, and state what company you
were in during the war at once. There
is nothing to be lost, and it might be
that you or your relatives wiH gain.

*
| James X. Cooper, farmer of James
ville Township, ended his life at his
.
home there last Sunday at 6:30 p. m.,
| by blowing the top of his head off with
a shot gun, ill health being mentioned
as one of the main causes for the
tragedy. Mr. Cooper, a recognized
, leader.' JUL. his community, had warned
the members of his'fatuity of his plan
to end his life, but the threats were
I not taken seriously.
taking his gun unnoticed tt.un its
stand in the home, Mr. Cooper went
to his hog pen, a short distance away.
He placed the barrel in the middle of
the forehead and fired the shot that
snuffed out his life instantly. No one
saw the act, but his -children, hearing
the shot, ran to hint and found him
dead. *
Mr. Cooper, 49 years old, had suf
fered with pellagara for some.time, and
while he often discussed the unfav
-oc-able economic conditions-he- is said
to have worried more about his health.
He was the son of the late J. H. Coop
er and wile, Annie Everett Cooper,
and had lived in the Angetown section
of the county all his life. His wife
died'several years ago, leaving six chil
dren, Claudius, Bettip, Tonmiie, Nora,
John Henry and Bennic Cooper. He
ulsd leaves one brother, G. L. Cooper,
and one sister, Mrs. Hattie Mizelle.
Funeral services were held from the
home yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock
by Rev. I). W. Arnold. Interment fol

2,000 See Cut-Away Ford at
Motor Company Saturday
Approximately 2,000 people wit
nessed the special Ford showing in
the Williamston Motor Company show
room here last Saturday, the cutaway
chassis proving to be of great inter
est to all. With every part of the
machine, even to the tires, cut away
to make vision possible inside and
out, the on-lookers were amazed to
see the parts in action!! A small motor
turned all the working parts, showing
how the twin cylinders performed and
how the gears shifted. Electric weld
ing on the bodies attracted much at
tention, as it was impossible to detect
the connection, making one unit of the
entire body.
In connection with the show, tiie
motor, concent delivered its first new
V-8, a sedan, to Judge Clayton Moore.
Additional deliveries will'be made this
week, it was learned from Manager N
C. Green here yesterday.

CAR FLOUR FOR
NEEDY RECEIVED
HERE LAST WEEK
No Distributions Will Be
Made During Next Few
Days, It Is Understood
—» ~~
I A few more than 1,000 24-pound
hags of flour were unloaded here last
week for distribution among needy 1
| families, the gift coming through the
American Red Cross. None of the 130 i
barrels of flour has been distributed so
j lar, and none will lie given out until
a meeting of the several welfare agen
cies can be held, and then it .will be
directed by the local chapter of the
Red Cross organization, it was learned
from welfare headquarters here
day.
\ ery little of the flour will be dis
tributed during the next several weeks,
ami when the distribution', is starfed a
close check on the applications will be
maintained, it is understood. Applica
tions will Ih' considered when the dis
tributing organization is made com
plete, but then the applicants will find
it hard to get free bread unless their
requests arc deserving ones.
Free seed funds have been estab
lislul, and where tlie charity seekers
have failed to stnrt digging for them
selves they will come as near to star
vation as they will to receiving a bag
of the fjeu,flour. It is not the purpose
of the wel laic agencies here to deny
any deserving person a hag of flour
or aid in any possible form, but as
far as the agfcncies are concerned the
j "deiid-beats" are on the road to star
_ vatiow. —• : —• — 2 —*-•
Several citizens, when called upon,
have prepared notes for the charity
seekers. This practice is encouraged
when the applicants are. really deserv
ing in their requests.
The flour is of a good grade, and
will be of much aid in relieving suf
fering in those cases where the un
fortunates did their best to support
''themselves but failed in their efforts.
