Eenansville high was not v so
successful over the week end m
basketball. Out of four ', games
played only one wastwon. .The
Kenansville boys defeated Clin
ton -boy 32 to 22, but ,lost to
Beulavillfi boys Tuesday night by
9 to 5 in ne of the closest guard
ing' games ever seen on the Beu-
laville .court After .each team
lost the ball they would form
their defense line, guarding their
goal and then the offensive team
invaribaly lese the ball, The only
field goals of the , game .were,
long shots from the center ju the
court. It was just a case -r of two
air tight defensive teams oppos
ing each other. ' '. '. '
Kenansville was handicapped
by the smallness " of the Bcala
vUle court It was. almost impos
sible to break- away and" ' fast
break and scbreV Beulaville plays
here the last of February, and Ke
nansville will be expecting to re-
vpran tti ' . . nnfrnmft. But tfl trive
Beulaville credit must be said
the better team lor tne nign; won.
Kenansville boys defeated Clin
ton Friday night easily. The score
of 32 to 22 does not tiUl tne real
difference between the two teams.
Clinton was fast' and had the
best offensive trame of any team
the Kenansville ' have played
this year, but their defense was
correspondingly poor and Kenanr
ville had them, beaten before they
could eet set
Kenansville girls lost to Clin
ton girls by 17. to 11 -in a. foot
ball game. -The officiating in this
game was very loose,
Beulaville girls defeated them
also by 13 to 13. The game Was
rather close and the official.:
was also very good and very clcme.

My, dear Bob:
Jam. If, 18S8.
;? Your very kind letter of the 10th received and I think your posi
tion very sound and the statement very apt .
-4 1 have just concluded a conference with Mr. Jones, Chairman of ,
t the Agriculture Committee and it look as though the Agricul
ture Bill to some extent ia bogged down in the conference com-
remittee, I was afraid of this when we attempted to pass the
Bill at the Special Session especially while we were gummed up
. ..with the labor Bill and Housing BUI, The Agriculture Bill
.was a piece of legislation important enough to command the afet
.tentipn and time of every man ia Congress but unfortunately,
V ;? some provisions were put ia the bill tnat snouid sever nave Deen
' in .there and the problem now is to put out a workable, praoti-.
oal bilL V ; - - : '. .- ' ,'f ,' '-
I was in hopethe tobaoco control bill would be ia effect by Jan
'nary 15 and that date is carried ia the Bill as being fhatime for ,
w the Secretary oH Agriculture to announce quotas but today ia
" the 15th "and the Bill ia not yet out Tobaoco control seems to. .
; me to "be almost indispensable if we expect to have and enjoy -i
good prices. ' I think we have a good tobacco control section in
. the-Agriculture Bill and wish that it oould have been passed
f'sseparate' and apart from the bill but such was simply impossible
4; and as stated in your letter, the situation has reached the point
7 that jt presents a very oomplex problem especially when tobao-
co planting is now underway and crops are being planted.
s', .. , ,i -1 '' 'i 1 1 i ' , , a ,
;-' It is my sincere hope and desire that the farmers will realise the
situation as it exists and will steady, themselves and not over
?. v plant which wiU result ;ia orerprodttction and this in turn
- ;will result in low prices. The conferees have had no trouble ia
. 'agreeing on the tobacco section ia the BilL The tobacco Con-
gressmen,: including myself worked oa this Bill for over three
v' months last year and for two or three weeks during the. early1 '
m part- of the Special Session We agreed on the Bill and it went
through in good shape but there are tome other provisions .ia
the Bill which are certainly causing trouble. v - ;
, " t ' 'w ' 4 ,
The cotton section is not satisfactory ail to be perfectly frank
1) witnyon, I have serious doubt about its potential worth to the
larmers. There is nothing la the bill about truck. I attempt-;
1. .ed to tackle this problem but it is oertaialy a tremendous puc
: ale We find ourselves at the present ia a rather naoomfortable .
'.and unsafe position with reference to agricultural legislation
" and I hardly know who oould be blamed. The Congressmen from
; 'each section, of course, were trying to take care of their situ-f
"J- ation and some were trying to block any kind of legislation. ,
The result of this is that the entire situation it bogged down with
the conferees and L doubt seriously 11 11 wm o wi wuua w

COBBECTION In a story e 4
bout Thomas W. Waters, jutefe-1
hiker, extraordinary, ia lad
week's Duplin Times, an error was
made ia the article stating that
Mr. Waters had not seen his mo
ther, whom he visited Christmas
last year, ia 20 years. The state
ment should have read that it waa
the first Christmas he had spent
with his mother ia twenty years,
not the first time he had seem her
ia that length of time.
MB. WATEBS said he got to
thinking about the news story of
his t hitchhiking achievement!
which along, with the news that
he had visited his mother ia Gear-.
gia Christmas, ran ia the same pa-'
per. And he decided, he said, that
it wouldn't sound so good for him,',
if he Was such a hitchhiker, not 2
to visit his mother, wh4only liv ;
ed in South Georgia, in twenty
DBTvTNa along almost amy
county , road now, the white cov
ers of tobacco beds may be seen,
those early harbingers of spring ia
Duplia County. - As yet there is
no control program of tobaoco, bat
this column (a small farmer ia a "
way) from acquaintance with far- '
men, is of the opinion that most
tobacco farmers' would welcome
some kind of Government regola-
tion of tobaoco planting this year.
It is the Opinion of many farmers
In Duplia that without govern
ment control of tobacco plantings
this year, the weed is likely to
average only around 10 cents a
pound next faQ.
