12 Cases on Dockel
At Tuesday Session
Of Recorder's Court
Mistrial Ordered in One
Case When Jury Fails
The recorder's court had a little
busier day Tuesday than it has been
having for about a month, 12 cases
appearing on the docket, some of
which were continued. However.
Judge Gaylord and the other court
attaches figured that the session
more than paid its expenses in fines
and costs levied and collected as a
result of the day's work. A jury was
called for in one case, but it resulted
in a mistrial, and disposition was
postponed until a future date. Sidney
A. Ward again served as solicitor in
the absence of W. Blount Rodman,
who is in the Army.
Following are the proceedings:
A continuance was granted Clinton
Wilkins, charged with being drunk
and disorderly and using profane
Henry Wilkins, charged with the
illegal sale of liquor, demanded a
jury trial, and the jury disagreed.
The judge ordered a mistrial and
the action continued.
George Myers was found not guilty
of assault on a female.
1 L. King, charged with issuance
of a worthless check, had his case
continued until July 7th.
A continuance until next Tuesday
was granted in the case against An
nie Hopkins, charged with operating
* car with improper brakes.
General L. Puckett entered a plea

one card can be issued to any person

In addition to the ration books
above outlined, there are two other
types for gasoline required for non

for 1-gallon units, and R books have
coupons for 5-gallon units. Boats
used for commercial purposes may

Tire local rationing board was no
tified this week that sugar stamps
would be good for double the usual
quantity of sugar, beginning next
week, but the time limit for stamps
is also doubled which means the ef
fect is the same. Stamp No. 5 in
each sugar rationing book will be
good for 2 pounds of sugar in the
period from June 28 to July 25.
Stamp No. 6 wall not be good until
July 26. but will call for 2 pounds
of sugar, which must last until Au
gust 22. In other words, each sugar
stamp will continue to be good for
one-half pound of sugar per week,
as it has in the past.
It is also announced by the ration
ing authorities here that all insti
tutional and industrial users of su
gar must register again between
June 20 and July 25. in order to be
eligible to apply for their sugar
quotas for the months of July and
August. This class of users includes
