GRAND JURY JS
MADE UP MOSTLY
OF YOUNG MEN
Judge Frank Daniels Gives
Brief Charge; Docket
Is Small
With a howling dog just outside the
building to listen to and the unneces
sary whispering and walking around
of lawwrs, spectators, and others to
add to \he general disturbance, the
two weeks' mixed term of Martin
County Superior Court convened here
yesterday morning just before 11 o'-
clock, with Judge Frank Daniels, of
Goldsboro, presiding.
A comparatively small docket await
ed the attention of th ecourt, and one
of the smallest crowds to assemhtg in
.the courtroom in many seasons was
on hand to take part in or hear the
proceedings.
Judge Daniels, speaking so quietly
that he could hardly be heard 10 paces
away, made a very short and pointed
charge to the grand jury* the talk deal
ing principally with the duties and pro
cedure.
A youthful jury, with one or two
exceptions, Isitene dattentively to the
charge, and after repairing to the room
assigned them, the jurors, under the
foreraanship of H. C. Green, had re
turned two true bills before the noon
hour, and were working on others
when the court adjourned for the noon
day meal. The jury, made up of the
following men, is believed to be the
youngest, as a whole, ever to serve in
Martin County:
H. C. Green, foreman; Raymond
and Ralph Taylor, J. -W. House, H.
A. Jenkins, C. C, Coltrain, Lester
Keel, J. B. Bullock, Dillon C. Peel,
J. W. Hardy, W. E. Tyaon, J. T.

MILD WINTER
IS PREDICTED
Prediction Well Received
By the Unfortunate
All Over the Land
AgaiH the scientists struck another
chord pleasing to the ears of millions
thii week when they predicted a mild
winter just ahead. And while the pre
diction might go to naught, the
thoughts of a possible mild winter are
paramount with the needy through
out the land.
A report released this week from
Washington reads:
"Unlet* there is an unprecedentedly
sharp drop in temperature, the weath
er man believes another moderate win
ter is in store.
"That is the normal expectancy,
Joseph M. Kincer, chief of the agri
cultural meteorology division of the
weather bureau, taid today, as a re
sult of the upward swing in the ther
mometer beginning in 1926.
Rccqrds show that the weather
moves in currents of a few cold years
and then a few warm years, Kincer
said. In the past, a change from one
cycle to another, has come gradually
and while not forecasting definitely
a mild winter, he said that indications
pointed that way since there is no
evidence yet that a change to sub
normal temperatures has begun.
"The present upward trend in tem
perature really began after the hard
winter of 1918. Since then abnormal
weather has been dominant, with the
trend particularly noticeable since
1926.

ported an enrollment of 106, one of
the largest ever recorded there. The
opening exercises were well attended
by patrons of the school, several of
the committeemen making short talks
before tin; gathering.
Following the devotional exercises,
led by Daniel Hardison, Mr. I'. E.
Getsinger stressed the nede of moral
training, and Mr. P. Peel compared
modern education with the old, leaving
with the children many worth-while
thoughts. The need for economy in
the operation of the schools was point*
ed out in a few remarks by Kev, W.
B. Harrington, who also urged the
cooperation of all that the school
might progress.
With an enrollment of 63 in the high
school, 13 more than the average last
year, the outlook is unusually bright
for "the school there this year, Prin
cipal A. E. Mercer said yesterday.
The work in the eleventh grade has
been standardized, and 12 pupils have
registered for instruction in' that
grade, it was said.
Principal Mercer will be assisted

Holigh, Mis* Rhoda Peel, Miss Thel
nia Ilarrell, and Miss Marina Rober-
There is a marked interest in the
school and its success on the part of
the people of the community, and
some real work is predicted among the
knowledge seekers there during this
term. The school was one of the few
in the county reporting an increased
enrolllment for this term over the
opening figures last year. An increase
of 31 pupils was reported.
The school will start its daily sched
ule at 7:45 and adjourn for the day
at 2 o'clock during the next few weeks
the arrangement having been made
so that the children could return
home early to take part in the duties
about the farms and homes.

Believing that evasion of the 6-cent

pertoleum products operating in the
state have organized the North Car
olina Petroleum Industries Commit
tee to combat this tendency, cooperate
with state officials in bringing to

These reports will be added, and
upon them aid will be sought in

A complete estimate of the coun

it was stated by the welfare sup

PRESIDENTIAL
POLL STARTED
Names of Seven Candidates
Appear on Poll Ticket
Received Here
It now looks as if the presidential
election will be settled long before
November 8. The State of Maine
went Democratic last week for the
first time since 1914, and "as Maine
goes, so goes the nation," or rather
that is what the Republicans have
said time and again. Then there arc
other contests, the results of which
will indicate the outcome of the
November 8 election.
In addition "to that a magazine is
conducting an extensive presidential
poll to get the trend of national poli
tics in these days of depression. Early
indications from that are favorable to
the Democrats, but early returns point
to a close race. 'The names of Jacob
S. Coxey, Farmer-Labor party; W.
Foster, Communist party; IHer
bert Hoover, Republican party;
Verne L. Reynolds, the almost un
known Temperance Party candidate;
Franklin D. Roosevelt, Democratic
party; Norman Thomas, Socialist
party and William D. Upshaw, Prohi
bition party, appear on the magazine
poll. However, all these names will
not appear on the regular election
tickets next November 8.
The magazine is also asking the
name of thf party favored in the last
election, the answer to tjie question to
indicate the shift from one party to
another if there is any shift.
Many ballots have been received
here, and as far as it could be learn
ed today Roosevelt is literally "mop
ping up" the field. Norman Thomas
is understood to be getting a few, and
Mr. Hoover is getting one now and
then, surely.
A Washington City newspaper is
also conducting a pool, but not on as
an extensive scale as the one now in
progress by the magazine. The ques
tionnaire sent out by the paper varies
fron\ that of the magazine in that
it places only the names of the Re
publican and Democratic candidates
on the return card, leaving a blank for
names of other candidates.
Several hundred of the magazine
ballots and a few of the newspaper
ones have been received here and re
turned to the offices of the two
companies.

BLACKSMITH IS
TOLD BUSINESS

Judge Extends Time for
Paying Fine So Man Can
Make 'Hoover Carts'
Judge Frank Daniels, presiding ov
er the Martin County Superior court
this week predicted that there would
be more work for blacksmiths from

or has been in the past few years. The
judge made Kis prediction when John
R Whichard, county .blacksmith, ex
plained that lie haf been unable to
pay te SSO fine imposed upon him at
a recent term of the court because he
could not get work.
Solicitor Gilliam explained that
judging front Hie number of 11.H.V11
carts parading throughout ' Eastern
North 'Carolina, the blacksmith busi
ness must be improving. H'hen it was
that the jurist stated as his opinion
that it hasn't improved as much as it
will in the iiiture
Whichard, declared to be of, good
reputation, was'carried into court sev
eral months ago for allegedly having
driven a car while under the influence
of li(|fior. He was found guilty and
the court fined him ss(l and added
the costs. With eight children, seven
of them by his-last wife, at home to
care for, the man explained that lie
had little left over after they were
fed. "And how many iiuusc children
have you," the judge asked. "Six
or seven," was the answer.
"Case continued until the December
term," the judge ordered, turning to
the defendant and urging him to make
preparations to pay the fine by that
time.
The solicitor reviewed the unpaid
accounts due the court, indicating
that bonds would be forfeited or the
defendants would go to jail in those
cases where the fines rfnd costs are
not paiil One bond was forfeited in
open court yesterday morning, but no
defendants were sent to jail for pist
