Williamston last week for the confer
ence tilt and while the loss was a
bitter,. one, the fans witnessed a fine
game. .
The outcome of the game was in
doubt until the final whistle. The
teams were evenly matched but the
Green Wave cashed in on a couple of
breaks that meant victory.
A fumble by the Indians in the sec
ond quarter gave Williamston the
balL m Perquimans' 20-yard line, and
the Green Wave rolled over for the
first touchdown. -.
Perquimans came back strong in the
third period and scored a TD after a
68-yard march. Howard Williams
smashed. over the goal line to make
the seore 6-6. i -v ;.y
On the kick-off, immediately follow
ing tie Perquimans' score, William
ston ' tarted a 73-yard march which
eadedMn the. Green Wave 'scoring a
TD -ldtaking a 12-6 lead in the
game. '-.v;'-"-.-' .
r Perquimans made a fine come back
in the closing minutes of the contest
and had the ball on the five yard line
but an intercepted pass gave Willianj
ston possession, and the Green Wave'
ran out the time left ; ' "

eye-catcher with outstretched arms
and a-winking eye. . About the clown
Were placed seven foods. .The base
of the merry-go-round was composed
of seven sections, and in each sec-'
tion foods were used to represent each
of the basic seven food groups. Charts
were displayed on Menu planning ac
cording to the Basic Seven Chart and
ojrproper aervmgs of eachHp-' All
record on the subject was played as
the merry-go-round turned.

For Support Price
R. Flake Shaw, of Greensboro, Ex
ecutive Vice-President of the North
Carolina Farm Bureau, called on all
peanut producers this week not to sell
their 1951 crop for less .than the
support price of $226 per ton .
He said' that both the North Caro
lina and Virginia Farm Bureau Pea
nut Committees, at a meeting last
week in Scotland Neck, went on record
as being in favor of this move to pro
mote an orderly marketing of this
year's crop. '
Slyw pointed out that the Farm
Bureau organizations in each peanut
producing county of North Carolina
and Virginia are making plans to sign
up all available peanut storage space
to receive farmers' stock peanuts un
der the PMA loan program, if such
space is needed. '
The resolution states: " . ... no pro
ducer should sell his 1951 crop of
peanuts at less than support price. ' If
the peanut shelters and . cleaners do
not purchase the crop at support price
or better, the government peanut price
support program working through the
Growers Peanut .Cooperative, Inc., is
set up and ready to support the crop
by purchasing peanuts at support
price at licensed warehouses through
out the peanut belts in both States."
Shaw said that the loan program
on peanuts is available for all eligi
ble producers not exceeding the farm
acreage allotment, and that the pro
ducer would, receive 100 per cent of
the support price for his peanuts ade
quately stored on or off the farm. -
The Farm Bureau Chief said that .
many warehouses have already been
licensed throughout North Carolina
and Virginia for peanut storage, and ;
assured all farmers that they would ,
get the support price for their crop
if they complied with the storage reg- "
ufations;- - .;.';? ::-A'' -n v.;. ;f
