Bright leaf tobacco acreage aV '
lotments have been Increased by
slightly over nine and one-third
per cent for 1951. Production and
Marketing Administration officials
announced this week.
The official order was received
at the local PMA office on Wednes
day. It had previously been an
nounced that approximately a nine
per cent Increase would be granted.
Each fanner may eompute his
Increase by multiplying his present
allotment by 1.09937 and figuring
to the closest tenth of an acre. .
Thus a farmer with five acres in.
1950 would have an allotment of
5.5 acres in 1951, and an B-aere al
lotment would rise to 8.7 acres.
Each farmer will receive his of
ficial notice of his 1951 tobacco al
lotment about January 1st.
It is a State law, a misdemeanor,
and subject to fine to have fire
crackers in your possession. This
is the first, last and only warning.
Chief of Police Earl Coombs of
Warsaw requests all persons take
heed to this warning and make this,
a safe Christmas. Firecrackers are
not to be tolerated in Warsaw. This
law applies to all of Duplin County.

This slightly rolling land usually
does not wash away in gullya, but
instead it slips away so slowly that

that from four inches to a foot of
