Previous announcements had stated
prices might be somewhat higher than

said that prices would be approxi

Some lines of cars will be the same,
as a slight increase will be permitted
other manufacturers. Under the new
order the auto dealers will have to
assume some of the increased costs
of the cars by having their commis

cent At the present time only Ford
and Chevrolet are showing cars, but
other lines are expected to reach deal

goal ior Perquimans in this year s
drive will be approximately the same
as last year, and she is hopeful that

the sale of these tiny seals, the con
dition can be remedied.

Edenton ana other towns that might

or four games per week either at
night or in the afternoon.
Each club will have one vote in the
proceeding, and all phases of a league
will be discussed at the meeting.
Those intending to attend the meet
ing should write E. Pratt Fearing at
Elizabeth City of their intention. Un
less there is a quorum present, there
will be no league organized. Towns
wishing to be represented should be
gin now to perfect their organization
in order to have plenty of time to
raise money to defray expenses Ior
the respective teams.
A delegation representing Hertford
is planning to attend this meeting and
do everything possible to help organ

be headed by .1. H. Towe, chairman
of the local Athletic Committee, and
a number of members are expected to
attend with Mr. Towe.

was held Monday night and it was the

summer can be a reality, if other
towns show the interest being de

Local Chairman Reports
Sales Tuesday Totaled
With less than three weeks ri
maining of the Victory Loan drive,
Perquimans County ranks fourth
among all of the counties of the State
in the sale of E bonds, according to a
release received here by R. M. Rid
dick, chairman of the Perquimans
War Finance Committee. Only Polk,
Alleghany and Jones counties ranked
ahead of Perquimans in the race (if
the counties to reach E bond quotas.
Polk had sold 70 per cent of its quota,
Alleghany 6( and Jones 57 per cent.
The-record showed Perquimans had
already sold 4(i per cent of its quota.
Since the release was made public,
sales here have jumped ahead and to
day the county has reached about two
thirds of its goal. Mr. Riddick stated
Tuesday morning that E bond sales
totaled $50,875, or about 66 per cent
of t he goal.
Despite this good showing for Per
quimans, the local chairman appealed
to the residents of the county to con
tinue the purchase of E bonds in or
der that the entire goal can be ob
tained by the time the drive closes on
December 8. He said, "We have made
a good showing thus far, but we are
still a long way from our goal. We
need another $27,000 worth of sales
in E bonds if the county is to be
counted among those who achieve
their quotas. We have an outstand
ing record in the sale of war bonds
and we must not let down this time.
"The bonds that are being bought
in this Victory Loan drive are going
1 toward helping to win the peace by
bringing our boys back home, provid
! ing the wounded and ill with hospital
ization. Certainly, we must put this
the same as we did the
Mr Ri(1(ick added that the sale of
tn,asury typc homls during the cam-
the entire E bond goal has been sold.
The local committee urges every
body to buy that extra E bond now,
to help put Perquimans at the top in
the race for first place in the E bond
campaign in North Carolina.
