The sow at tacked the boy and but for the time ly arrival of his father ' the conse quences would have been serious in deed.

N. Trueblood, of Hertford, charged with failure to have a ddg inoculated for the pre vention of rabies after being noti fied, was dismissed by Judge Walter H. Oakey, Jr., on Tuesday, after it was shown that the dog had been inoculated by an Elizabeth City ve- tenarian four days before the war rant was served, but the defendant was told by the Court that he was not sure he was not in contempt of court. "It does seem to the Court", continued Judge Oakey, "that you could have cooperated with the offi cers by simply stating that you had already complied with the law, in stead of carrying a chip on your shoulder and attempting to take up the time of the court in trying the case." There were four such cases in court on Tuesday charging failure to comply with the anti-rabies law. May 15 was the date set for the closing of the campaign for inocu lating dogs in Perqeknwm,- since which time officers have been warn ing such dog owners as have failed to comply with the law that if their dogs were not inoculated within three days they would be subject to ar rest. Mr. Trueblood failed to have his dog inoculated by A. A. Nobles, the county rabies inspector, but had the . work done by an Elisabeth City vetonarian. When officer M. G. Owens on JH ay 17 ( saw Mr. Trueblood and informed him that he would be arrested if he failed to have his dog vaccinated within three days, Mr. Trueblood admitted on the stand that he did not inform the officer of the true state of affairs but told him to go ahead and make the arrest. The law provides that the officer shall ex amine the dogs to see if they are wearing the metal tags provided by the rabies inspector. The officer did not see Mr. Trueblood's dog. Mr. Trueblood conducted his own case in Recorder's Court, cross-examining both the state's witnesses. If was only after he took the stand in his own behalf that he displayed the certificate and tag from the veter narian. le stated that his reason for withholding the information from the officer was the officer's attitude; that the officer told him that if he did not have the dog inoculated he was going to swear out a warrant. Ellie Sutton, colored, of 3ethel Township, was sentenced to the roads for thirty days upon conviction of failure to have his dog inoculated after being warned by an officer. Sutton was also given a sentence of (Continued on Page Five) Big Celebration low sand dunes the first colony of Englishmen, women and children trod three centuries and half ago.
