program of sacred and classical num

meeting financial reverses.
Dr. Baldwin, accompanied here by
Dr. Haywood, Baptist minister of
New Bern, will play in the Baptist

—*—«
A second attempt to formulate an
agreement for the-marketing ol pea
nuts this season at a "fair" price was
made yesterday afternoon when more
than 135 farmers met in the court
house here and discussed the serious
problem The meeting met with
success in that the growers hen: a
greed to cooperate and follow the
same plan now in effect in nearly all
the other counties in the peanut belk.
1 here were many views expressed
by fanners from all sections of the
county yesterday, most of which were
, ones having merit. Some of the
growers jyere of the opinion' that a
further reduction of the crop next
| year would be of sonic help in boost
ing the price Others declared that
the crop should be marketed at . the
rate of 10 percent monthly.. The idea
i of a few was to formulate a strict
I contract,
f'inally agreeing on the general
: j plan advanced throughout the belt,
the. growers here perfected their 10-1
1 cal organization. I'ownship commit
tees were selected to canvass the
peanut growers in their respective
» districts by 1 tiesday noon of next
week and report the facts at a'meet
ing of the several township commit

i j In canvassing their respective dis

> the growers to sign a contract, but
i the canvassers will ask certain infor
i illation in an effort to provide a way
, to hoUI peanuts off the market that a
I glut and a depressed price might be
prevented. The questions that will be
i j asked by the have already
t ; been published, and growers will
i greatly aid the canvassers by offer
i ing a hearty cooperation.
The results of the canvass will be
I tabulated here Tuesday afternoon of
| next week, when the several commit
,! teemen will select a county chairman.
County chairmen will be members
j of what is known as the central com
. mittee, a committee made lip of coun-v
,! ty chairman throughout the peanut
area. This central committee is sche
. duled to meet with the cleaners in
I an effort to formulate marketing plans
I that will avoid gluts and provide a
higher price.
[ It is generally believed that if each
I of the committeemen does his duty
well and that every farmer does his
best to comply with the general plan
j that this crop can be marketed in the
most orderly manner than any other
one in years and that the price can
, be materially raised even in this day
I of general stress.
, There art no contacts to be sign
, ed, the general plan being advanced
upon the honesty and integrity of the
farmer. The committees will have
necessary blanks tomorrow, and it is
hoped that a ready response can be -*
' had from every farmer. Peanut grow
ers in other section, particularly in
those areas where the crop is the
main one, are backing the movement
100 percent.
