IN GOOSE NEST
OFF BUT LITTLE
Three Percent. Decrease Is
Reported In Values By
A surprisingly small decrease in
property values for 1932 was reported
in Goose Nest Township by Mr. J. A.
: Rawls, list-taker, who completed the
| work there yesterday, it was learned
I from Tax Supervisor C. Ben Riddick
here this mornihg.
| The $37,469 decrease reflects a valu
ation loss of only 3 per cent, Mr. Rid
dick pointing out that 100 head of
team were sold and carried out of the
district during the period. In 1931,
the total property values there were
$1,469,112, divided as follows: White,
$1,224,563; colored, $244,549. In his
list, the first one completed in the
county, Mr., Rawls shows the 1932
values to be $1,431,643, divided sl,-
185,978 among the whites, and $245,-
665 among the colored people of the
Marked decreases have been pre
dicted in 1932 property values, but it
is certain that if the other districts
show a report as favorable as the one
in Goose Nest, there won't be much
of a change after all.

Advertiser. Will Fad Our Col-
Name Representatives To
for Free Flour
Beginning tomorrow afternoon at 2
o'clock, local welfare workers will dis
tribute government-furnished flour to
needy families free of all cost, it was
announced yesterday afternoon follow
ing a meeting of the committee in
charge of the distribution. Two rep
resentatives will give away the flour
to the needy each Saturday afternoon
between 2 and 5 o'clock at the stor„e
adjoining the J. O. Manning Gro
cery Company on Main Street.
Those applying for flour will find it
necessary to see the representative in
their respective township and get an
order blank. No flour will be given
out unless the claim of the applicant
is proven and accompanied by a writ
ten order from the person in the
township or district where the request
originates. The committee yesterday
named representatives to issue the
written requests for the needy, and it
is hoped they will support the com
mittee in its effort to perfect an ef
fective distribution system.
In Jamesville Township, J. R. Man
ning has been asked to consider the
requests at first hand and in those
cases where he considers the appli
cant worthy, to prepare a draft upon
the committee here, where it will be
honored with a 24-pound bag of flour.
Other representatives have been asked
to serve as follows: Williams Town
ship, Joshua L. Coltrain; Griffins
Township, W. 11. Harrington; Bear
Grass Township, Bennett Rogerson;
YVilliamston, John F.. Pope; and Pop
lar Point Township, Van G. Taylor.
A quantity of the flour is being car
ried to Oak City for distribution in
Goose Nest Township by the welfare
committee there. Flour for the needy
families in Robersonville, Hamilton,
and Cross Roads Townships will be
distributed by the Red Cross commit
tee in Robersonville, making complete
a county-wide distributing system.
The Red Cross Flour is being pro
vided for families in actual need, and
dead-beats who prefer begging rather
than scratching for themselves are
warned to go slow in their requests.-
Delayed distribution was considered
by the committee at one time, but fear
ing the flour would be damaged by
the fall, the welfare workers decided
to. start handing it out immediately.
