M. G. Mann Talks to Cotton
Growers Here Last
Wednesday
• Martin County seed loan borrower* j
and cooperative members met in the
courthouse here Wednesday and heard '
M. G. Mann, secretary-treasurer of
the North Carolina Cotton Growers J
Cooperative Association, explain how |
they may apply their cotton at 9 1-2 !
cents per pound as collateral on gov- '
ernment seed loans.
Mr. Mann told the borrowera\ how
they may place their cotton with any
of the cooperative'a receiving agents
or warehouses, draw an allowance of;
80 cents per 100 to defray costs of I
picking and ginning, if such allowance I
is neded, and when enough cotton has I
been delivered on the 9 l-2-cent basis
to collateralize their loans have the
remainder of the cotton and all other
crops released by the government.
The release of the crops comes
from the Seed Loan department in
Washington.
He urged borowers not to sell
their cotton at present prices but to
take advantage of the "government's
liberal plan," which, if taken full ad
vantage of, will releaae at least sl,-
500,000 to North Carolina farmers, he
estimated.
Viewing the price outlook for cot
ton from production, consumption, ex
port and carry-over angles, Mr. Mann j
said it appeared to him that cotton
"should go' higher before the next 1
planting season rolls around. A |
world crop the shortest in nine years, |
increasing American exports, and re-.
vival of the textile industry were cited;
as reasons for this opinion.
Mr. Mann quoted governmtnt re
ports to show that more than 70 per j
cent of the cotton ginned in North
Carolina up to October IS was 15-16
„ inch or longer in staple, and he re
viewed briefly the • work the coopera
tive has done to improve the quality
of state cotton through the distribu
tion of improved seeds and payment
of premiums on gradea and staples.
Mr. Mann also addressed a similar
meeting of Bertie farmers in Windsor
Wednesday. I

4 AMENDEMNTS
WILL BE VOTED
ON IN ELECTION
nfC " "
Voters Urged To Consider
Importance of Proposals
Submitted
Because most of the public atten
tion is being focused on the presi
dential campaign, many people do not
yet know that North Cafolina voters
will vote on four Constitutional A
mendtnents in the general election of
November 8, it is being pointed out
here. Yet some of these amendments
% are of greater importance than the
election of some of the candidates.
These four amendments are as fol
low s: 1
i
1. To amend the constitution to in
crease the terms of office of sheriffs,
'I corohers, and constables to four years
I instead of two years, as at present.
I 2. To amend the constitution to
make proceeds front life insurance not
' subject creditors' claims where the
sole beneficiaries are the wife or chil
dren of the insured.
| 3. To creator 20 soticitorial districts
separate and apart from the judicial
j districts, to permit the increase of the
' number of superior court judges with
j out increasing the number of .solici
| torst
| 4. To amend the constitution so that
| constitutional amendments may be
i voted upon at special elections in-
I stead of at general elections, as is now
required.
The amendment which will appear
on the ticket as number 4, to create
the separate solicitorial districts, has
been submitted to the voters in two
previous elections and has been de
feated in both. It is being advocated,
however, as an economy measure,
since it is generally agreed that no
additional solicitors are needed, al
though more judges are needed than
the 20 provided for in the constitution.
If tbfs amendment is adopted, it will
be possible to create additional judic
ial districts and provide for more
judges without electing more solici
tors. At the present time, the addi
tional judges are appointed by the
governor, under the emergency judge
act, instead of being elected by the
people, as are the other judges.
I The amendment providing for the
- election of sheriffs, coroners, and con
stables for terms of four years instead
of two years is also being urged in the
interest of economy. Those who ad
vocated this amendment in the 1931
general assembly argued that county
officials as well as state officials should]
hold office for the same period of four.
years, and that the present require-1
ment for these officers tO_ stand X?r
election every two years was ufinetf
essary and wasteful, There does not
seem In he any opposition to this pro
posal.
I ■'[>. anifmlmpnt to exempt proceeds
from life insurance policies from
! claims of creditors was urged in the
1931 general assembly as affording ad
ditional protection to widows and or
phans. It- i* expected. to meet with
considerable opposition from certain
business interests, however.
The most definite opposition to any
"Bf the four proposed amendments *o
far is against the one to permit vot
ing on constitutional amendments at
special instead of general elections.
| Attorney General Dennis G. Brunt"
milt has announced his vigorous dis
j approval of this amendment on the
ground* that the most people possible
1 should vole on every amendment and
' that this can only be done in general
| election*.
This amendment was proposed by
j the 1931 general assembly, however,
, because of the evident tendency of
I most people to vote against all amnd
ments proposed at general elgctoMt ß !
because few people understand thent.
The importance of amendments and
what thy really mean is usually ob
' scurcd by the other issues in the cam
paigns and by the candidates up for
j election, it is pointed out. lhe result
is that many voters, fearing to vote
for something , they do not under
stand, generally vote against the
amendments.
The adoption of this amendment
would make it unnecessary to wait
until the next general election should
the 1933 legislature authorize the sub
mission of additional amendments to
the constitution, as it is expected to
do; But indications are that all these
four amendments will_ have hard sled
ding unless a great deal of educational
work is done from now until the elec
tion.

The people of Bear Grass communi

has been made in their school this'

j cipal, Mr. T. O. Hickman, two teach- '
t ers have been added to the faculty. '
The school has also secured the serv
_ ices of a music teacher, Miss Jessie
Fay Green, who began work this week.'
One of the regular teachers, Miss'
Mabel Menefee, began her work in 1
I the high school since the end of the I
. first month.
. | The teachers of the school have be
i gun a visiting program, which they'
• think will be helpful to the school. J
} Each truck route has been followed
up and about 200 calls have been'
, made.
With 12 boys and 18 girls reporting
for basketball, the coach, C. B. Mar
tin, is expecting big things from the
1 two teams. The boys, for the past
' two weeks, have been running thru i
1 drills, exercises, and plays, prepara-!
Tory to scrimmage. Not having had a |
girls' team last year, most of the pros
pective players for this team are en
. tirely new in the athletic field. How
s ever, with gHeat determination and
enthusiasm, the teams expect to en
tertain their opponents with some real
basketball this season.
The school gave a Hallowe'en party
Thursday night. A short program
1 was given and after the program the
' people were entertained with fortune
telling, a fishing pond, and several
' side shows. j
' The parents of the community are
cooperating with the teachers. This
fact was very evident last Thursday
1 ' night, when an unusually large num- ,
ber of parents attended the meeting

is through this organization that the
i teachers- hope to maintain the cooper
i at ion and support of the parents. |

By Miss HATTIE THROWER
During the quid hours of this morn
ing the spirit of Sarah Margaret Man
[ ning passed away after days of suffer
ing. She was born yn March 17th,
; 1871, in Griffins Township, Martin
j County. Her parents were the late
Moah and Sarah Peel Koberson, who
| were among the descendants of the
1 county's oldest and most prominent
, families. Her education and training
was secured in the schools of the
I neighborhood and there the founda

brothers, James, A, Koberson, George
h. Kobersoli, of Martin County, and
N. R. Koberson, of Tarboro, survive.
I'orty. years ago she gave her life
to God, and dedicated it to His serv
ice in Holy Baptism in the Christian
Church, where she has worked with
untiring zeal for the advancement of
Christ's Kingdom To neighbors and
Iriiyuls, to rich and poor, she was ever
the helper in all those things which
