California turned the nomination to the New York man when it withdrew its support from John N. Garner, of Texas. For Mr. Roosevelt's running mate, Mr. Garner was nominated by accla mation Saturday afternoon at 3:30, and so it will be Roosevett and Garner against Hoover and Curtis next No vember. - I After a hectic night of nominations and balloting an} a day of rest, the delegates harmonized, all the aspirants for the nomination withdrawing their names except Al Smith, who held out to the last, and who got only a small vote. Roosevelt went into the conven tion with around 665 votes. On the second ballot and when the fourth poll was flirted he possessed sround 700 votes, Texas and California turning to him and giving him more than enough votes to assure his nom ination. Around 770 votes were neces sary for the nomination. According to reports coming from Chicago, some observers predict Al Smith may bolt and not support the Democratic ticket next November. He had no comment to make when he was asked about supporting the ticket, apparently indicating he was a bit sore because of his failure to get the nomi nation. Going from his Albany home to Chi cago by airplane, Governor Roosevelt was given a great ovation when he en tered the convention hall late Satur day afternoon to make a brief accept ance address. The delegate! started leaving for their homes late Saturday, when the work of the convention was just about completed. Before adjourning, the convention received a telegram from Senator George H. Norris, of Nebras ka, Republican Independent, announc ing that he would support the Roose velt-Garner ticket in the November election. The convention passed a resolution expressing its gratification at the Senator's pronouncement.

CURB MARKET SALES GROW Total Sales in June $130.13, Increase of $27 Over Previous Month By Miss Lora E. Sleeper The women selling here on the curb market during the month of June re ceived (130.13, an increase of (27 over the total tale* in May. Twenty-two women took advantage of the privilege of telling through the curb market. The selleri came from Everetts, Sandy Ridge, and Poplar Point. It is to be regretted that the lack of transportation facilities keeps many people from the market. It it to be hoped that all sellers now having the advantage of the market will keep a watchful eye and lend a helping hand to those deprived because of lack of funds and help those wanting to tell to come to the market. There also seems to be a mistaken understanding on the part of some of the folks of the county. The market is open to any one living in flu rural sections of the county.

And as Martin Coun ty went for Robert R. Reynolds, so did the State, but Khringhaus has evi dently pushed on to win over Foun tain by a small margin. ' An exchange of votes was said to be in evidence in certain precincts of the county, and other than the large ma jority polled by Reynolds that was about the only thing unusual in the primary here Saturday. This alleged exchange effected no great change in the final vote, for Reynolds won in a walk, and Khringhaus was several jumps ahead of Fountain. Morrison failed to cary a single pre cinct and Khringhaus led only one in the county, Reynolds gaining nearly 300 and Fountain gaining M) 2. There was a marked change in the William ston precinct vote for governor, Kh ringhaus gaining 35 votes to come with in 3 votes of beating Fountain. And the vote was close between Morrison and Reynolds, in this precinct, there being a difference of only 13 votes for the short term. While there were no county politics connected wftlv the primary, a com paratively heavy vote was cast, the count falling under, the June 4 count by only 341. The vote in every precinct in the county was about in proportion to that cast June 4, except in Williams, and that went for Reynolds, after giving Morrison a majority in June. Fletcher led Mitchell in this county by 591 votes and late reports indicat ed, that Fletcher was leading in the state. The count in Martin County was: Fletcher, 1,241; Mitchell .650. RUN AWAY FROM CASWELL SCHOOL Young Girl Sent Up From This County Caught After Escape The Martin County jail and the fare there are far better than that receiv ed at the Caswell Training School or at home, Janie Jarrell, wayward Grif fins Township girl, told officers here following her escape from the Lenoir institution and her arrest in this coun ty last week. Charging ill treatment at the hands of the Caswell Training school author ities, the 15-year-old girl ran away from the institution with May Brady who was sent there from Guilford County. The two of them begged rides along the highways and reached the Jarrell girl's home within a few hours after their escape. But they had not been there long before of ficers wfcre on their trails and the Jarrell girl was taken into custody,ithe other girl escaping the officers just as they approached the home. She was arrested last Friday afternoon and the two are now awaiting their return to the correctional institution. The Jarrell. girl was sent to the in stitution about three weeks ago fol lowing her arrest in Griffins Town ship. She told officers here yesterday that she preferred to remain in the Martin County jail rather than to re turn to the Caswell fchool or remain at her own home. American Legion Juniors Lose To Roanoke Rapids The young boys' team, sponsored by the John Walton Hassell post of the American Legion was eliminated by Roanoke Rapids there Friday after noon from further participation in the State baseball contest conducted on a national scale by the American Legion.

The count of votes for governor was close at 6 o'clock Sun day morning when Khringhaus was leading by a 10, vote margin. At that time 300 precincts had not been heard -from, and white the Klizabeth City man had the. advantage there was some doubt evident in the reports as to who will represent the Demo crats in the governor's race next No vember. At 6 o'clock Sunday morning, all but ly counties had reported their com plete returns, and in those it was hardly more than possible that Foun tain would break even, but he was making a surprising race and the final count might alter the outcome. It was a Reynolds and Fountain primary all right, but Reynolds rode in the*frunt seat. And while Reynolds registered a landside, the old Demo cratic spirit still prevailed with Cam Morrison. "1 congratulate you upon your nomination and assure you that you and the whole ticket will have my loyal support," MS. Morrison said in a telegram 'to his opponent* - early Sunday morning. In the primary, the large vote of Reynolds and the close contest of fered Khringhaus by Fountain were the surprises of the day, The 47-year-old lawyer, of Asheville, took the lead for the Senate as the first returns began to trickle in, and increased it steadily. SELECT FACULTY FOR NEXT TERM OAK CITY SCHOOL Williamston Young Woman Included in The List of Teachers Next Term A few new teachers will serve in the Oak C ity school (acuity during- the 1932-33 term, according to an announce nient made this week by Principal H. M. Ainsley, reelected to head the schools there during the coining term. Tht names of the 1932-33 term fac ulty and the grades assigned the teach ers are: First grade, Miss Josephine Harri son, Williamston. Second grade, Miss Lena Cherry Allsbrook, Scotland Neck. Third grade, Miss Adeline Tew, of Portsmouth, Va. Fourth grade, Miss Ruth Pittman, Falkland. Fifth grade, Miss Julia Holloway, Macon, Ga. Sixth grade, Miss Ernestine John son, Kobersonville.

The Oak City school, included in the list of accredited schools since 1924, is organized on the hour system and operates on a six-hour daily sched ule. Among the subjects offered there, probably home economics is more widely patronized than any other one. as it reaches into the cre ating relations that are very marked between the pupily and the school pa trons. Principal Ainsley stated that all the pupils are cooperative and generally are frank and honest. The school en joys a freedom of fine spirit in the extra school activities as well aa in social and classrooSn work, 'it was pointed oQt by the school man.
