Received a picture this morning which was too late to get in the pap re. It is a picture of Ward Carlton of Warsaw and Bill Bartlett of Bowden loaded down with a string of mullets which they caught off Barnacle Bill's pier on Topsail Is land. If the mullet are runnig now, I guess it will be rather hardi to lo cate a fisherman in Duplin County. Everyone of them will be sneaking off to fish for a spell. The visiting Methodist Ministers have a time getting fed in Kenans ville. During last year's revival, it was the minister's fault. They were invited to a certain home for din ner. The preacliers got mixed up with "which house", so they went in the wrong house, took their seat and waited for dinner. The Bap tist lady was in a state of confusion, and after much straightening out, she sent the ministers to the right house. , 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 ing leaves and graciously invited them in the house and chatted a-, way. The ministers looked around and sniffed no food, and they fig ured something was amiss. In short order, they, all wound Up at Jones Cafe. It -is rather unusual that this happened to the same person. - both years. " Ruth Stills Destroyed Two stills were destroyed by the Sheriff's Department on Monday, March 25.

HORBS 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 ..The referendum is whether to continue, or not to continue a Ilk. per head assessment on all cat < tie sold for slaughter that is sold for more than $20 per head. This Mcfper hcdd far used to promote the salt and use of North Carolina beef. The N. C. Catlemen's Association 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 consumption. 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. JlortW^resbrfericft Minister Passes Rev.
