IN LEAF PRICES
MADE THIS WEEK
Prices On All Grades Show
Marked Increase on the
Border Markets
Florece, S. C., Aug. 22.—The broad
est price advance sinoe the opening
last Tuesday took place today on the
tobacco markets of the Sastern South
Carolina and border North Carolina
belt.
Not only'did prices for lower grades
improve, but superior grades, which
have remained almost stationary, com
manded higher prices.
The United States Department of
Agriculture said that on the Pamp
lico and Darlington markets "quality
leaf grades average 30 per cent high
er, and lug grades averaged 17 per
cent higher."
Sales were not as heavy as had been
anticipated.
Growers who sold at Conway ex
pressed general satisfaction following
■ a spurt in prices. Rains held sales
to 52,000 pounds, which brought an
estimated average of $13.57 per 100,
several dollars higher than any prev
ious average of the year. Not a ticket |
was turned.
Mullins reported an advance in
prices on better grades, more notice
able in the ripe, orange types. Prices
-averaged better than 10 cents a pound.
Fairmont, N. C., reported a sharp
advance in all medium and better'
grades. The official report was sales
of 413,458 pounds and an average of
Twenty-seven thousand pounds were
sold on the Clarkton market at an
average of $10.84, the best price of
the season. Farmers were better
pleased at Lake "City, S. C., than at
any time this season, when 150,000
pounds were sold at an average of
$12.52. Unfavorable weather curtailed
sales. Good tobacco sold for as high
as 53 cents a pound.
The highest prices of the season
were reported at Lumberton, as bet
ter grades were offered. Sales totaled
302,744 pounds at an average of $11.29
per 100. The previous high for the
season was $10.89.
Number Moving Back to
Rural Sections Increases
♦ ■
The United States Department of
Agriculture estimates that 1,472,000
persons left farms for towns and cities
in 1931, rind that 1,679,000 persons
moved farmward. The gain in num
ber of persons living on farms was
648,000. For the year 1930 it was!
estimated that 1,766,000 persons mov-j
ed from cities to farms, and 1,727,000
persons moved from farms to cities—
these two, movements almost balanc
ing each other. There was a slight
decrease in the number of persons go
ing to farms in 1931, and a consider
able decrease in the number going to
cities.

"LITTLE WORLD
SERIES" GAME&
START TODAY
♦
Some Doubt As To Who
Will Play Williamston
In Pinal Series
•
The "Little World Series" starts to
day, bringing to a close a fairly suc
cessful season for the Albemarle Lea
gue, made up of the Elizabeth City
(Jaybirds, the Edenton Colonials, Cole
' rain, and the Williamston Martins.
Winning over Colerain here yester
day afternoon, 3 to 1, before/one of
the largest gates reported ths season,
Edenton will contest the league pen
nant with the Martins, winners of the
first half back yonder in July. The
I opening game will be played here this
.afternoon at 4 o'clock. Tomorrow the
locals go to Edenton, the Colonials
returning here Thursday. The teams
will alternate between the two towns
until the winner is determined by the
winning of four games.
There was much difficulty in deter
mining just who was going to play
the championship series with the Mar
tins. Elizabeth City was eliminated
last Saturday, but Colerain and Eden
ton tied for a place in the finals, and
the extra game was scheduled here
yesterday afternoon, won by the Col
onials, 3 to 1.
Williamston canie out on top in
both halves of the split season, tak
ing first place in the last half with 11
victories and 9 losses. Up to yester
day, Edenton and Colerain were even
with 10 victories and 10 losses each.
Elizabeth -City held the cellar position
at the close of the half with 9 vie-'
tories and 11 losses.
Kugler will pitch for the Martins
this afternoon, it was announced by
Manager V. J. Spivey this morning,
and a large attendance is expected at
that game and the remaining ones in '
the series.
SAYS PELLAGRA
IS ON INCREASE
—♦ —
Indications Point To Many
Cases During Pall
And Winter
+ ,
"Pellagra has just issued its chal- J
lenge to the people of North Carolina
and the fight is on. Already more
cases of this disease have been report
ed to the State Board of Health dur
ing the first 18 days of this month
that were reported in the State dur
ing the whole month of August, 1931,
and there is every indication that this
dread disease will reach even greater
proportion during the coming fall and
winter months." Thus briefly Dr. J.
M. Parrott, State Health Officer, sums
up the present pellagra situation in
North Carolina.
Dr. Parrott goes on to say that pel
lagra is a disease caused by eating a
diet deficient in certain food elements ,
' contained principally in leafy vege-1
I tables, such as turnip greens, collards, I
; cabbage, kale, mustard, lean meat, |
: fish, poultry, eggs, milk, and butter- j
niilk. Other foods also may be eaten
'to successfully combat the disease, or*
I effect its cure, it it has not reached
such an advanced stage that it is in- 1
curable. " * ' .* ,
According to unofficial reports re
ceived here shortly after the noon
I hour, Colerain is contesting the right
'of Edenton to play in the series,
claiming that the shortstop on the
Edenton team was a Virginia boy.
Colerain representatives are said to (
have traveled all night last night es
tablishing their claim, and a meeting 1
of league officials was called today.'
The outcome of the meeting could
not be learned here at 1:30 o'clock, j
and it is not known whether the Cole
rain nine or the Edenton Colonials
will play Wjlliamston. It is assured,'
however, that one of the two teams
will play Williamston this afternoon
at the appointed hour, 4 o'clock.
Heavy Receipts at Chadbourn
Chadburn, Aug. 22.-^-Deliveries to
the Chadbourn tobacco market today
were the greatest of the season, about
115,000 pounds being offered. Prices
were the highest of the year, ranging
from $5 to $39 per 100 pounds. Many
growers averaged S2O to S3O for their
offerings. Selling lasted until late aft
ernoon.

HOPE TO REMOVE
STATE LEVY FOR
6-MONTHS TERM
Bonded Indebtedness of the
Counties In State Is
$99,695,785.00 ,
While it has been reliably rumored
that an effort will be made in the next
State legislature to have the State
take ove* the bonded indebtedness for
roads and bridges now resting on the
shoulders of county taxpayers, reports
now indicate that an effort will be
made to lift the 15-ceni tax for the
six-months schools also.
Hpti. A. D. Mac Lean, of Washing
ton, Democratic nominee for State
! Senator from this district, who hint
;ed in a speech before the county coni-
Imissioners at their state meeting at
Wrightsville several days ago has been
generally credited with advancing the
plan for road bond relief and several
other measures. In recent reports he
denied that he would introduce a bill
next General Assembly calling
for the state to take over the bonded
indebtedness of the schools. The re
ports did state, however, that an ef
fort would be made at the next ses
sion to have the state lift the 15-cent
tax now levied as a supplement to
state funds used in the operation of
the six-months school terms.
The mass report of the state tax
commission showed that counties and
their subdivisions had $99,695,785 in
bonded in4ffcbtcdnads for roads ar*d
bridges and that they had to pay about
$5,000,000 annual interest on the debt.
It is this amount which would be in
volved in the fight.
Beaufort County, Mac Lean's home,
has $1,782,000 in road debt, and Mar
tin County has about $625,000 road
debt, not including the tliwntdtyp
bonds which arc quite an item in
some districts.

SCHOOL OPENS
AT OAK CITY
SEPTEMBER STH
Teachers Will Hold Meet
There On Saturday
of Next Week
By H. M. Ainsley
Oak City, Aug. 22.—The Oak City
public schools will open Monday,
September sth at nine o'clock. Gen
eral enrollment, classification and
lesson assignments will take place in
each classroom beginning promptly
at that hour. All pupils are, request
ed to brin,-; any old text books which
were used last year except arithmetics
from 3rd through the 7th grade which
have been changed. Second-hand text
books may be sold to pupils coming
up from .1 >wer grades also high school
texts mky be exchanged at quite a
saving in cost.
i here will be a general teachers'
meeting of the Oak City faculty on
Saturday morning at ten o.'clock,
September 3 in the Oak City school
building for organization > of work.
Ccn.ral memorandum for teachers
will lie distributed to each teacher,
room assignments, daily schedule and
plans for immediate work on Tuesday
will be discussed.
Ihe object is to do away with so
much formality and get to real facts
as pertain to the promotion 'of the
pupil. Since teachers do not measure
the same traits in pupils we find it
necessary to have a uniform system
of marking and .grading pupils. Ob
jective marking will be useil, based
on two principles; pupils' power to
do, and rank of pupils on objective
basis. Report cards ought to. fur
nish information for parents, schoo'
and child and in the simplest way
possible. Percentage marks will nt
be used. Qualities of work of the
greatest importance in the develop
ment of the child will be considered.
The greatest improvement must, be
'through the cooperation of the schoc I
and home. Health, thrift, reliability,
social attitudes and clear thinking
contribute to good citizenship and
should have a definite place on the
daily class schedule.
To eliminate failures, in the public
school it, is necessary to
change our way of thinking. An ar
ticle in the Pictorial Review, Septem
ber issue by Victor Shawe, illustrates
this viewpoint. "By reducing the time
the pupil spends in school, several
hundred million dollars could be sav
ed to the taxpayers of the nation."
Present less facts and be more
thorough in the ones taught will aid
in establishing the habit of recall and
add to mental efficiency.
The Oak City school is for the de
velopment of the pupil morally, phys
ically, and mentally and such activities
as may be considered best to interest,
hold and train the child will be fol
lowed. The full cooperation of par
ents community, county and state is
necessary for the training, at this
critical time, of every individual in
the school 'districts.

FARMERS STRIKE
FAST SPREADING
IN MIDDLE WEST
Farmers There Refuse To
Sell Products Unless
Assured Profit
Sioux City, la., Aug. 22.—The farm
ers' holiday movement picked up to
day a cyclone-like momentum which
carried jt into many part of the mid
dle west.
In lowa, where the strike for high
er produce prices originated, a host
of mass meetings, parades! attacks on
trucks and blockades occurred. Of
ficials of the National Farm Holiday
association reported growing strength
in other centarl and western states.
In Minnesota, Governor Olson de
clared his willingness to join gover
nors of other states in a plan, "even
martial law ' to stop farm marketing
until prices rise.
Successful in curbing all truck ship
ments in Sioux City, leaders .of the
strike turned their attention to the
nation's second largest livestock mar
ket and set up a barricade across the
two main highways from lowa nto
Omaha.
More than 4(10 farmers near l.ewis
ton, Idaho, agreed not to sell any of
their bushels of wheat for
'ill days «Mipt at a profit. . .
Strikers re-established picket lines
on all roads into Spencer, lawo, no
trucks, wagons or automobiles bearing
farm products were allowed to enter.
There, as in other places, law en
forcement officials said »hey were
powerless to interfere.
Possibility that the United States
government migh take action was
forseen by Assistant United v States
Attorney A. C>. Epperson at Omaha.
He said intervention might result on
the grounds the farmers have enter
ed a in restraint of inter
state commerce by hindering, de :
laying or preventing shipments." He
said the farmers also might be charg
ed with operating ,t combination 11
restraint of interstate commerce.
I wo hundred and fifty farmers halt
ed two trains here Sunday night and
held t«ne of them for an hour. Tor
pedoes and danger signals were used
thfr trams—One WHS allow
ed to proceed when the farmers found
it was hauling only milk, but the oth
er, carrying" livestock, was held an
hour?-
Declaring his sympathy with the
strikers, Governor Olsonfi only far
mer-labor governor in the nation,
said: "I would be willing to join
with the governorsi of the other agri
cultural states in any plan, however
arbitrary, which would tend to raise
the prices of farm commodities."
Meanwhile the striking farmers were
planning 'to increase the effectiveness
of their embargo here by picketing
all railroad loading docks throughout
the territory.

THINK COUNTY
SHOULD FARE AS
WELL AS OTHERS
Better Understanding Of
School Problems Gained
At Monday Meeting
Martin County citizens meeting in
the county courthouse here yesterday
with the members of the board' of
education and the various school com
mittees expressed themselves as fav
oring an eight-months school term,
provided other sections and counties
continued to enjoy the long term. And
while some of the districts represent
ed favored the extended term upon
certain conditions, representatives of
other districts expressed the belief that
80 per cent or more of their people
would vote for the extended term
should an election he arranged.
A better understanding of the prob
lem confronting the school heads was
gained at the meeting when it was
learned that the county and local
school authorities were required by
law to provide for the extra two
mouths, that only the people them
selves could abolish the extended term
or have it done by an act of the Gen
eral Assembly.
1 he "problems facing the taxpayers
were considered, but none of the prop
erly owners, as far as it could be
learned, was in favor of lowering the
educational standards below those en
joyed by children in nie^h boring
counties. In fact, Mr. Jim Staton,
numbered among the leaders'for cut
ting the budgets, expressed himself as
favoring the continuation of the eight
months, school term for Martin Coun
ty children as long as those in other
counties had* the opportunity of en
joying the extra period.
Special tax levies were not men
tioned, the meeting agreeing that
nothing could be done about the ex
tended term, and that the authorities
were compelled to make provision for
the seventh and eighth months, wheth
er they wanted to or not.
Committeemen front eleven of the
twelve districts in the county enjoying
the extended term were present for
the meeting, and they expressed them
selves before the body.
"While I have no children, 1 favor
schools ( and while I would be suited
with a six-months term, I do not want
the children of riiy community to drop
below the level of others," Mr. J. R.
Kuowles, property owner and school/
committeeman of Dardens, said.
Mr. Plenny Peel, Farm Lite com
mitteeman, said W' believed 75 per
wK of - the in that -district
would vote for a short term. He lat
er "qualified the statement by saying
that if it would be in keeping with
the standards of other schools.
Mr. C. A. Harrison, Williamston
committeeman, reported hi-, commit
tee 10(1 per cent in favor of the 8-
months term, adding that IK believed
85 per cent of the people in the dis
trict wanted it.
The F.veretts committee was report
ed by Mr. L. A. Clark as favoring the
long term UK) per, cent.
"Our committee is 100 per -cent in
favor of the extended term, and I be
lieve 90 per cent of the people are
for it," Mr. H. C. Norman, Kober
sonviHe committeeman, reported.
Mr. J. M. Dixon reported that Uie
I'armelc committee would contend for
the eight-months term.
llassells was reported by Mr. K. R-.
Edmonton as favoring t(he loiger
term.
Mr. B. M. Worsley reported the Oak
* its committee 100 per cent in favor
of the longer term.
"Bear Crass wants the longer term
provided 411 other sections have it,"
Mr. Kdmond Harris said.
Four of the five committeemen at
tending from the Janicsville district
were heartily in favor of the longer
term,
Hamilton favored the 6-months term
but wanted the extra two months if
other districts were to have them.
Gold Point was not represented.
While a few expressed themselves
as favoring the 6-months term, pro
vided it was general, other committee
men were out-and-out in their expres
sions for the extended term.
