Every employer of labor or work

of the Roosevelt blanket code which
the President of the United States
is asking them to sign and put into
effect in their establishments at an
early date in an effort to hasten the
recovery of business and the return
of prosperity after the
Copies of the agreement were
placed in lock boxes at the post of

to cut the pay of any individual as
the result of shorter hours.
< It was said at the post office today
that none of the statements had been
mailed there, so far as had been learn

obtained pledges prepared for them
to sign promising to support and pat
ronize employers and workers who
are members of the National Re
covery Administration movement.
These blanks are provided at the post
office. Any employer who has not re

Rains Continue Sufficient
To Bring Out Straggling
Crop In County
Considerable improvement in the
tobacco crop has been shown in the
past few weeks in this section, ac
cording to reports from nearly all i
sections of the county. Rains have
been had in nearly all territories dur
ing the past week or ten days, and
the crop, which some time ago gave
indications of rapid deterioration in 1
the dry. hot wf.ather, had come out I
in a remarkable manner.
Prospects now are for a good crop
in nearly every part of the county
and in thi ssection of the State gen
erally, it is said. Tobacco men who
have made it their business to travel
over wide areas to survey the out
look say that the tobacco crop looks
good to them in nearly every locality
they have visited.
During the past few days substan
tial rains have been experienced in
all sections of this territory, and the
crop is fast developing in body and
size, offering every indication of ma
turing into a much better quality of
leaf than was in prospect a month
The change has brought a feeling
of optimism to farmers and business
people alike, for this community,
along with other tobacco growing
sections, looks in large measure to
tobacco for the difference between
prosperity and slack business. And it
has been slack for a long, long tome
here an deverywhere else. All signs
now point to better times this fall for
the farmer and for his city neighbor.
Curing is in progress in the county
in scattereu localities, although it has
not been started on a large scale. The
first half of August, however, will
see most farmers, taking in a part
of their crop and fires will be burning
in barns day and night in every part
of the county.

Workers on DeWitt Farm
Think He Will Come
Back There Later
That R. S. McCoin, Henderson law
yer and business man, who has been
mysteriously missing from his home
here sine elast December 22. is still
alive and may show up again later, is
the belief expressed by some of the
tenants on his large Virginia farm of
1,600 or more acres, according to a
story from a Virginia newspaper just
received here. That article is quoted:
“Tenants on the Dinwiddle farm
of R. S. McCoin, Henderson, N. C.
lawyer, who mysteriously disappeared
last December 22, and who for a time
was believed to have been murdered
near this city (Richmond), are firm
in the conviction that McCoin is still
alive One of the employees of the
Carolina man's 1600-acre farm near
DeWitt, is quoted as saying he was
sure McCoin is alive, for he knew a
party who talked with the attorney in
Miami, Fla., two weeks ago.
“The tenant is quoted as refusing
to be specific in regar dto his infor
mation and refused to ralk when he
learned that he was to be quoted. He
indicated, however, according to the
export, that it was a common belief
of the 12 tenants on the farm and
other persons in |lhe neighborhood
that McCoin still lives and will re
vist the place again.
“McCoin visited the Dewitt estate
shortly before he was last seen in
this section.
“It was learned that a bank has
taken over the managemenr of the
farm this year, but arrangements
with tenants made by McCoin him
self continued in this year’s crops.
The tenants were loud in their praise
of McCoin, who purchased the estate
about 20 years ago, and who has spent
considerable money in improvving it.
At present about half of the farm is
in cultivation, bright tobacco being
the- major crop.’’
Every now and then since the in
vestigate nos McCoin’s mysterious dis
appearance lapsed into inactivity
there have been rumors locally that
persons had been seen who claimed
they had seen and talked with Mc-
Coin in different places. He has been
reported seen in Atlanta and Florida,
and there has been other talk that he
is living in the vicinity of Pittsburgh,
iPa., where he has a brother, and also
in Canada, where relatives of Mrs.
McCoin reside. There has been no
positive identification or confirmation
of the reports however, and what ac
tually happened to the attorney is as
much of a mystery today seven
months after he went away as it was
at the time at least so far as the
general public knows.
Asked by Dr. Gerringer To Make an
Effort To Be at Flat Rock
Rally Next Sunday
Dr. L. W. Gerringer, conference dis
trict chairman, is requesting that all
stewards of the Granville, Vance and
Henderson charges attend the fifth
Sunday district rally that is to be at
the Flat Rock Methodist Protestant
church next Sunday. There will be
all-day services.
The afternoon session will be of spe
cial interest to the stewards, since
there will be a round table discus
sion of the problems that stewards
have to face as these who are respon
sible for the financial phase of King
dom service, Dr. Gerringer said. All
stewards are requested to be ready
to state their own problems as well
as assist in offering solutions for
other stewards’ problems.
P. B. F. Gravely, of Rocky Mount,
Va., died this morning at his home
there, it was learned here today. Fun
eral services will be held there Sat
urday, it was said.
Mr. Gravely was prominent in to
bacco circles on the local market, hav
ing been connected with Young and
Daniel, tobacconists ,at their Cooper's
Warehouse in this city as auctioneer.
He had a large number of friends in
this section of North Carolina, who
will regret to learn of his death.
Only meagre details of the funeral
arrangements were learned here today
but a large number of his friends in
this city are reported planning to at
tend the funeral.
Local Groups Go To Geor
gia for Season of Four
1 or Five Weeks
This week-end finds the exodus of
tobacconists to the Georgia belt in
full force in preparation for the start
of the selling season there on next
Tuesday, August 1. A large number
of Henderson men will be busy there
for the next four or five weeks, or
until the crop is sold. Most of the lo
cal people will be at Blackshear, one
of the large Georgia markets.
W. M. "Young and W. B. Daniel, Jr.,
who will again this year operate a
warehouse at Blackshear, have been
in that city for the past ten days
and will remain there from now on
through the season. Leaving over the
week-end also are A. H. Moore, Fred
Royster, and Richard and Martin
Young, who will be with the Young
and Daniel organization, and Farrar
Hicks, who will auctioneer for a
Blackshear warehouse, and B. V.
Bowen, who will buy tobacco on that
All over the North Carolina tobac
co belt tobacco men have either gone
or on their way to various parts of
the Georgia belt to help in disposing
of the crop.
Those who stay at home will l>e
waiting with a great deal of interest
and anxiety to get a line on the scale
of prices that will be offered for the
weed this year. It is taken as some
what of an indication of the price
that will be paid in the belts that get
under way later.
None of the local buyers for the
big comnanies goes to Georgia. Most
of them, however, will be scattered
over the South Carolina belt, which
opens on August 15, and will be oc
cupied there until the market here
starts on Tuesday, September 19.
Nearly Fourth Better for En.
tire System; Overtime
Now Necessary
Volume of business at the Hender
son freight office of the Seaboard Air
Line ra’lroad has increased more
than 100 percent in the past few
weeks over the corresponding period
a year ago, W. R. Vaughan, agent
here, said today.
For the first time in many months,
Mr. Vaughan said, it has become nec
essary to work the office force and the
yard crews overtime in order to
handle the business tsat is flowing
through the local offices. He also
stated that recent weeks had shown
an increase of approximately 25 per
cent in the volume of business the
railroad was getting on the system as
a whole.
Much of this is due to the fact that
cotton mills are running at such a
rapid space, and merchants are or
dering fresh supplies of goods for
their stores. There is. too, a general
increase;'in business in general.
To the casual observer, it has ap
peared the past few weeks have seen
nearly twice the number of freight
trains operated through this city as
was the case only a few months ago.
Some of this is seasonal, and is ac
counted for by the handling of per
ishables, but much of it by the quick
ening pace of business.
There has also been some notice
able increase in passenger traffic,
some of which, however is directly
traceable to vacation travel to and
from beaches and other resorts due
to the low rates offered by the rail
