September 15 is the openinsr date for the 1963 program year. The county PMA committee, reports Mr. Dail, will notify farmers of the prac tices approved for assistance and the amount of the assistance therefor be fore the beginning of the program year in the county, Rotarians Told U. S. "Military might alone is not enough for the United States to combat world communism," Professor Earl Sykes of Dartmouht University, told mem bers of the Hertford Rotary Club at their meeting held last Tuesday night at the Hotel Hertford. iouo iua( tufccr juuji Biuuy oi 8UU- j jeot he is firm in his belief that in addition to military strength the U. S. must also use economic assistance, and provide an example in Democracy at home in order to fight the growth of communism throughout the world. Citing the growth of Communism in China, Professor Sykes said, the Reds succeeded mainly because of promises to devide up the land among the many people of China who had insufficient land to provide enough foodstuff for families. . . He related that economic aid, such as providing agricultural assistance, farm instructors, health instructors aM .mechanics ol other lands, to the .UBUUIB Ol DUCKWSrU TOBS OI tUS WOriQ will go far in halting the advance of communism. He cited the present Point 4 Policy of the U. S. Government as an ex ample of economic aid which can gain results in-areas where Commu nism might gain a foothold. ; Herbert Nixon Ifew Election Chairman 'Announcement was made here Tues day afternoon of the selection of Her bert Nixon of Hertford, to serve as chairman of the Perquimans County Board of Election, succeeding W. , irtJuwejr, wsv ins neiu iw ipvai, xvi Mr. Nixon was named as chairman of the board at a meeting of the group held Monday afternoon.

A fight over con- vention rules developed at the ses- ' sion Monday night and this slowed down the progress of the conven- tion. It appeared Tuesday night a compromise was being worked out regarding the disagreement which came up over the rules, however, some reports stated other delays and fights may come when the convention adopts the party platform. 'There appear ed to be much behind-the-scenes action over the selection of the presidential nominee. Governor Adlai Stevenson of Illinois became the popular choice following a speech he made to the convention on Monday but at the same time reports indicated a movement to "stop" Stevenson was being attempt ed. . Much gossip circulated the conven tion hall over the man who might re ceive the support of President Tru man. Tt was reported the President had instructed his alternate to the convention as to his choice for the nomination but up to Wednesday no announcement had been made as to what these instructions might be. Late Monday night Vice President Alben Barkley announced he was with drawing as a candidate for the 1952 nomination. This announcement, ac cording to reports from Chicago, came after Barkley had had a conference with labor leaders who advised Bark ley their unions could not support him as the candidate. A number of southern delegations. including the one from North Caro lina, opposed the adoption of a rule which binds all delegates to the con vention to support tne nominees of tne convention ; tothe general election in November.Thts matter brought on quite a noor rnjnt on Monday mgnt, and, some Southern delegations stated the 'rule was in violation of their state laws and that they (the delegations) therefore could not subscribe to the pledge of assurance demanded by the rule.
