It has been announced here that
Joe Garner has been appointed
distributor for Toppings sausage.
Thie famous country sausage is
manufactured by Scott Topping of
Beaufort county, who started mak
ing the food early in 1936. Since
that time the product hgs become
famous throughout North Carolina.
Topping has his own farm where
he personally attends to the super
vision of the feeding of the hogs
and Slaughter, but the majority
of the meat used is imported from
western United States markets.
When he first started his busi
ness the Beaufort man used his
own hogs, but when the market
increased he was forced to seek
meat from the western sections.
When he first started, the daily
consumption of meat averaged
about one pig a week and now an
average of 12,000 to 15,000 pounds
each week is sold.
Garner said last night he had
two trucks distributing the sau
sage in this section of the state.

islation on the order of the Wagner
Ellender-Taft bill —a piece of un
finished business left over from the
79th Congress.
“Senator Taft is the new boss of
the Republican party, and we have
a Republican Congress,” said a
statement by R. J. T h o m a s,
chairman of the CIO Housing com
“He can get it (the housing bill)
passed if he wants to. All he has
done up to now is to make speeches
while the nation’s No. 1 economic
problem waits for solution.’
When it gets around to it, the
banking committee is likely to
question other government men
about the still-born OPA order call
ing for a 10 per cent rent increase.
These include Ivan D. Carson, OPA
rent chief, and — if he returns
from an out-of-town trip in time —
Maj. Gen. Philip B. Fleming, ad
ministrator of OTC, who was away
when the uproar started.
To Hear Landlords
Landlords are to be heard tomor
The banking committee got its
hearing under way with the dec
laration by Senator Tobey that it
will place “squarely upon the land
lord” the burden of proof that a
rent increase should be granted.
The committee means to keep in
mind that one group will not be
present to state its case, Tobey’s
statement said —t he families who
live in “marginal tenant property,
almost slum property.”
“In this case of property not
many, if any, improvements have
been made by owners, and any in
crease in rents would be almost in
tolerable and unjustified,” he said.
Senator Capehart declared, how
ever, that rent control is probably
a local matter and “should be
turned over to the states and cities
to handle.” Capehart asked each
witness inturn to give an opinion
on the point, getting favorable re
plies from apartment owners'
spokesmen and objections from a
New York City official and a
spokesman for the American Vet
erans committee.
