At the beginning of the season
Beulaville had neither boys7 nor

fact that they had nowhere to play
last season and did not develop a
team.. There isn't a girl on this

Raliegh, Feb. 26 Close harmony
on local legislation between Sena
tor Rivers Johnson and Represen
tative R. L. Carr in the State Leg
islature. The Duplin county Demo- f
cratic convention went on record
as favoring increased fees for reg-.
istrars and members of boards of .
elections and also for Jurors. They"
bill making provision for this' has
not been introduced yet by the two
law-makers for the reason that ,s
they are waiting to see if a State- .,
wide bill Is put through,
isn't done, then they will.
put in a
local one. ,;
Another local matter on which
they are working in harmony Is
that of getting back pay for teaoh
ers in Duplin. Some teachers had
never been paid in full before the.
State took over the schools. Alt
is being made to get the
state to pr0vide for payment cf
ick unpaid salaries.
Dr. Carr has beat Senator John- ;
son ln the number of bills of state
wide significance, but the latter
has him beat in the local bills in
troduced and passed. So far Dr.
Carr has put through only one bill,
one to amend an act of 1929 relat
ing to compensation of members
of boards of commissioners, - .
Senator Johnson secured the pas
sage through the Legislature of a :
bill to balidate certain waterworks
bonds of Burgaw, and also a bill to ,
transfer certain unexpended funds
of the county to the general fund.
Another bill passed permits the
payment of $500 by the board of
commissioners and the board of ed
ucation for money loaned to Faison
