Pvt. Garrett Howell
Gets Unusual Gift
At Hospital In India
rrom an ah- iransport Base in
Assam, India, comes the following
story which will be of interest
The Christmas mail will bring
a lot of gifts to GIs overseas, but
Private Garrett Howell, a patient
in the 234th General Hospital,
claims his package to be the rarest
He received from the States an
eignteen men doll which says
"Da-da" and closes its eyes. The
doll, wearing a white organdy dress-
and a pink gabardine coat trim
med with white maribou, arrived
via the mail at the hospital where
Private Howell was undergoing
treatment for a bone injury in the
hand. The doll immediately be
came the rave of the ward. A
Chinese patient stared in astonish-
ment and his only comment was
Private Howell offers the fol
lowing explanation : "The doll was
sent to me last May when I was
stationed in Greensboro, N. C
living with my wife and baby
daughter, Barbara Irene. When
it reached Greensboro, I had al
ready been transferred to New
port News, Va. The Army Post
Office forwarded it to me but by
that time I was at a port of em
barkation in San Francisco. I
guess it followed rae all the way
to Assam, nearly six months en-
route. I'm going to send it back
to my daughter so that it can
reach her on her second birthday.
It was originally supposed to be
her birthday gift from a very
good friend of ours. By the time
Barbara receives it, the doll will
have travelled completely around
The doll had been unpacked in
an appropriate place. The voyage
had resulted in breaking the doll's
leg, and Private Howell had been
in the Fracture Ward when it ar
rived. TRANSACTIONS IN

Tonight cut an onion and rub it

form. Now tomorrow don't run

THOROUGH The trial of Mr.
Meadows, former president of East
ern Carolina Teachers College, will
come up pretty soon now and the
State is leaving no stone unturned
in its efforts to determine whether
the defendant is guilty or innocent.
Portions of the walks about the
ECTC campus have recently been
torn away for examination. Mead
ows claimed in his defense that
certain types of cement were used,
and the prosecutor wants to know
if this material or some other
grade, possibly of inferior quality
and less expensive, was employed.
TIME There are complaints
around Raleigh that State em
ployees are taking too much time
for lunch; but these employees
come back with the assertion that
the eating places in the capital
city, what with conventions and so
on, are so crowded that they can't
go to lunch, get waited on, and re
turn to work in the allotted time.
Rumors indicate that a move will
soon be started to have the State
set up a cafeteria for its employees
where they can get their meals
at a little cheaper rate, maybe, and
obtain them with greater speed.
Of course, the Raleigh restauran-
teurs will object, but the situation
is in need of attention. Something
may be done about it providing
space for the cafeteria can be found
in some of the State office buildings.
Fat chance .
moves to be made by the Legisla
ture will have to do with keeping
that bonus running for the teach
ers and other State employees. The
bonus plan will likely be re-enacted
or made a part of the basic
You are probably asking what
Mr. Cherry will recommend in re
gard to teachers' pay. Well, if
you can't remember what he said
in his speeches along this line, try
to dig one out. He will recommend
what he said he would recommend.
That's right and that means more
money for the teachers and for
other State employees receiving
less than $200 per month. No idle
campaign promises or compromises.

TALK There is talk to the effect
that John Harden, Cherry's secre
tary, will be giver, some kind of
extra compensation. There is noth
ing to this gossip, so far as this
corner can ascertain. For Harden
to receive some kind of extra pay,
action by the Legislature would
be necessary. Harden will be pri

DAVIS -LINER MOTOR SALES
In the absence of a fixed Grade Ceiling price and fear of a price decline, Tobacco Growers
heretofore got in the habit' of selling early and it is hard to break that habit The result is,
Buying Companies, for lack of help, are forced to limit sales hours to two hours daily for
this week for each set of buyers.
We do not know, but this limitation may be enforced throughout the month of January.
This restricted sale limit reduces Greeneville with two sets of buyers to 1,440 baskets
daily or a total of only 7,200 baskets this week. However, the average weight per basket
being approximately 200 pounds (N. C. Crops average more) indicates that a total of one
and half million pounds will be disposed of, but less than half of the former weekly sales.
It is hoped after this week, the sale hours will be extended, but if not, the disposition of
even oneand half million pounds over eight weeks period makes the formidable total of 12
Prices being stabalized it is an easy matter for outlying points to take tobacco in for sale,
but with a shortage of help and Greeneville being the main point of ultimate delivery it is
another thing to receive and condition it.
The moral of the situation is Sell direct on an Established Market and thus acceler
ate the proper marketing of the crop.
