which was too late to get in the pap

of mullets which they caught off
Barnacle Bill's pier on Topsail Is

I guess it will be rather hardi to lo

Everyone of them will be sneaking
off to fish for a spell.

was the minister's fault. They were

in the wrong house, took their seat
and waited for dinner. The Bap

and after much straightening out,
she sent the ministers to the right
But this year it was a different
story 1 The ministers arrived at the
right house for dinner. The lady of
the house was out in the yard rak

The U. S. Department of Agricul

price on various grades is expected
to be announced in the near future,
George Grange, who is in charge of
government grading of farm pro

Agriculture, stated in a meeting in
Raleigh, on March 20, that he ex<
pected the price support on tobac^
grades in 1963 to be more in line
with the demand for these grades.
Therefore, it is expected that the
price support on tobacco graded**
slick will be lower in 1963.
All farmers wUl need to do every
thing possible to produce good quaD'
ity tobacco this year. Everybody in-'
terested in tobacco is invited to at
tend 4he meeting at East Duplin

Dimes Creating Demands-Tar Heel Beef
According to David J. Kilpatrick,
Chairman og the Duplin County
Cattle tor Slaughter Referendum
Committee, beef consumption has
increased from 80 pounds to 83.4
pounds per person in North Caro
lina during the last three years.
Considering that there are about 4.5
million people in North Carolina,
these Dimes have promoted the sale
of a lot of beef.
Mr. David John Kilpatrick and
other members of his committee,
J%c\\ Kornegay, Dr. Donald Taylor,
Joe Williams, Calvin Mercer, Jim
Smith and Herbert Best urges all
farmers who have cattle, to vote
in this referendum on April 9, 1983

has used the money colected in
the past to tell the story of North
Carolina beef through Newspaper,
radio, TV, and through personal
contacts at all levels of the beef in
dustry, from production - through
One of the objects is to get people
to realize that, grade for grade.
North Carolina beef is just as good,
if not better than western beef.
Mr. Kilpatrick says, that all per
sons who share in the proceeds
from the sale of cattle for slaughter
are eligible to vote in this referen
dum, and all members of the com
mittee encourage everyone to vote.
They may vote at any of several
polling places that will be set . up in
the county. "This is the cattlemen's
own program to help themselves
and they would all vote as they see
fit." stated Mr. Kilpatrick.
