will occupy the entire first floor of
the Gooding building, work :s
being completed this week on re
modeling the floor into a suite of
offices that will enable the new
doctor to take care of several pa
tients at one time.
DA Willis comes to Kenansville
and Duplin County highly recom
mended following a year of lntert -shlp
In the Charleston, West Vir
ginia General" Hospital. He chore
rural general practice instead of
a specialized line because he is a
countryman himself and has dedi
cated hlji life to the improvement
of health and protection of the ru
ral people. He became convinced,
he says, that Kenansville was tnc
place for him after visiting here
several montns ago at tne invita
tion of the local Lions Club. He
recently took the North Carolina
State Medical Board eximlnatton
and nassed with high marks.
Dr. Willis was born in Kanawna
County; West Virginia, the son et
a Coal, Miner. He attended Kana
wha County schools and graduated
from East Bank High School in
1938. Before entering the Service,
he attended West Virginia Institute
of Technology and Morris Harvey
College. He entered the U. s. navy
In 1942 and served in the Hospital
Corps, for three years. Following
this he attended West Virginia Un
iversity. During the course of his

Warsaw continues its signs of

ArHhe time of their marriage Miss

Dr. WillisTs very optimistic over
the future growth and developmtnt
of Kenansville and Duplin County
as a whole. He tells us that advis
ors where he came from recom
mended this area as one of the
fastest developing areas in the
South Atlantic. He feels that the
new hospital to be built here is
sorely needed In a county as large
as Duplin and Is ready to give his
full cooperation to the project.
Dr. Willis is anxious to meet as
many people as possible so If you1
see someone on the streets you
might suspect as being the new
doctor Just walk up to him and in
troduce yourself. The Times next
week will carry the official an

offices on August 1st and office

All Heat Records
Broken: No Relief
If you have been thinking that it
Is unusually hot, brother, you are
so right! All existing records have

cury climbed to the dizziest heights

North Carolina It was 105 in Ra

109 in the shade here and the
nights have been scorching. The

The second million dollar rain
came to Duplin last night. Reports
say it was general over the county.
Not only were heat records broken
in Duplin and North Carolina this
week but all weather forecasters
broke their record yesterday by
insisting there was no relief in
sight from the heat and drought
before the week end was over.
As loafers sweltered in the
shade and tobacco croppers sweat
ed in the sun yesterday slight
rumblings began to be heard in the
west soon after mid day. Thou
sands were quietly praying for rain
and relief from the intense neat.
Farmers were beginning to count
their losses heavy when about dusk
heavy clouds and cooling winds
came up out of the west and for
nearly an hour rain leu neavny
and after the heavy fall let up light
rain continued for several hours.
Farmers were going around with
a different countenance this morn
ing as a bright sun and cooler air
faced them. The remark was heard
that we can stand the heat alright
If the rain maker will just stay with
us until this tobacco crop is bous
ed. Duplin and the entire tobacco
area has suffered tremendous loss
es this year so far. Not only la
tobacco seriously damaged but the
corn crop is cut even worse. How
ever if reports reaching thP Times
from all sections of Southeastern
Carolina are true Duplin is ex
tremely fortunate. Tobacco looks
better and shows less signs ox
damage in Duplin than any other
section. Our crop is cut but not
nearly so bad as in other sections.
One farmer was heard to say yes
terday that if the dry weather and
heat continued without abatement
the general loss in Duplin would
not exceed one third but now that
relief has come the damage will .
not be near that bad. On the
whole prospects are fairly good for
a-good tobacco yield In Duplin and!
this fall should eee things hum
ming good again. There teems

Tobacco Markets
Open: Price Higher
Than Last Year's
Tobacco averaged 52.86 at Laker
City, Fla., at the opening of the
1952 season Monday. Tobacco on
the Lake City market Is ungraded
and untied and usually sells from
3 to 5 cents less than tobacco on
the Goldsboro market.
At the Valdosta, Georgia, mar
ket, heavy sales at higher averages
prices marked the Georgia-Florida
flue cured tobacco market in spite
,of forecasts of a drought shorten
ed crop, in comparison to ihoi
openings, average prices ranged
from an $8 per hundred pound in
crease at Metter, Ga., to a drop of
$5.26 at Live Oak, Fla.
Total sales were heavier and
average prices better at most of the
19 Georgia markets than they
were in 1951, but all three Florida
markets showed reduced average
prices.
Most of the gains by grade re
ported by the U S Department of
Agriculture ranged from $1 to $3
with an increase in quality shown
in the low and fair grades.
