day of last week that he win not n
be a candidate for re-election to -the
office of Judge of the Super-,
ior Court in the June, 1938 pri-
mary. He stated that he prefer
red to retire and become an. emer
gency judge. , -r
Also on last Saturday Solicitor .'.,
James A." Powers, of Kinston, '
nounced that he would offer himJ
self a candidate to succeed Judge '
Grady on the bench.
It has been published in state
papers that Henry L. Stevens, Jr.,
of Warsaw, will file as a candi
date for the office of Judge. Mr. ,
Stevens has stated that this is
true but has not as yet given the
TIMES a formal 1 statement far

out Duplin County that George

for the place. Mr. Ward has not
issued a statement but rumors i
continue the rounds.
