W. Adams, county accountant. His estimate wa3 for a levy of 56 ceut3. as compared with 40 cents last year, exclusive of school requirements. Mr. Adams made it rle» that the 40-cent tale last year was on the basis of a property valuation of $17,500,000, whereas the estimate for the new year is ba=ed on a property valuation of only $16,000 000. and there was grave doubt whether or not the total would even that much, in which event the rate as finally adopted may be even above his SG-cent estimate. The item for county debt service, exclusive of schools, calls for total budget requirements of $41,317.87, with revenue available from other sources than tan levy of $4,185, and a total •levy for $39,681.80 after allowing for shrinkage in uncollected taxes, of $2,- 548 03 for that item. The rate for debt! (service is placed at 25 cents as com- j pared with IK cents last year. The general county fund remains at 15 cents, the same as last year, with total budget requirements of $32,381.- 72 and an estimated revenue of $lO,- 425 from other sources, requiring a tax levy of $21,956.72, plus $2,042.12 for uncollected taxes, cr a total of 23 998.- 84 to be raised by taxes. In the poor fund, the estimated tax levy is 12 cents, or considerably more th3n double the five cents levy last year. The total budget requirements arc given as $17,6634.70, of which S3BO is exoected from other sources than taxes.

The health fund levy Is raised from two cents last year to four cents this year, and calls for $6,500 as total bud get requirements, and only SSO in pros pect from other than tax sources, leav ing $6,450 to be raised by taxes, and with $359.38 allowance for uncollected taxes, the total sum to be raised from tax sources is placed at $6,809.38. The total budget requirements for all these purposes is $97,834.29. It is estimated $15,040 can be had from other than tax sources, but that $5,- 904.57 will be needed to offset uncol lected taxes, giving a grand total of I $88,698.86 that must be raised by taxa tion. The special levy in Townsville town ship for Townsville railroad bonds will be, according to the estimate, $1.73 this year, as compared with $1.42 last year. This is ovsr and above the coun ty and school levies. Total budget re quirements for that item, all of which is raised from levies in Townsville township, are put at $7,423.75. No re venue is anticipated from other than tax sources, and an allowance is made of S3OO as uncollected taxes, making a total of $7,723.75 for which taxes rhust be levied extra in that township. One reason for the rate boost there is that the property valuation has been cut from around $500,000 to an esti mated figure of $450,000 this year The total has not been added, and may be something more or something less than (hat figure. The school budget has not yet been completed to be laid before the com missioners, so far as known.

South Henderson Revival Drawing Good Crowds Daily (Reported to the Daily Dispatch.) There was a noticeable increase in attendance and in interest at the South Henderson Baptist revival last night. The visiting minister. Rev. D E. Earnhardt, preached on the subject, “A father looking for his kidnaped children.” He said in part: “Ther? can be no sense of rest in the father heart while a con sciousness of separation between him and his children. Separated by miles does not hurt if there is no separa ‘icn in quality of character. The worst punishment of hell will be the sensQ or loss that, is suffered by a soul hope lessly separated from the parent h art. A father who feels this absence of his children, thi sunnatural estran gement, is consciously or unconscious ly, looking and feeling and listening in attempt to reestablish natural rela tionship. “A sense of guilt will drive a son from his father and he will hide. Adam said ‘I felt that I was naked before Thee.’ He felt that way be cause he had tasted the fruit of ex perimental knowledge of evil. He hid himself among the trees of the gar den. Men still hide for the same rea son. They hide behind church hypo crites, they hid? behind flimsy ex cuses, they hide behind professed in abilities and disabilities. They run like rabbits because their guilty conscience reduces them to a rabbit state of be ing. They may have physical courage but morally they are consumate cow ards. They are afraid of pure wo men, they fear preachers of the gos pel, they canno r stand the hymns of holyholy gladness, they are afraid of a ipraying saint, and they flee from tins idea of the judgment and the sight of the ghastly face of death drives them into nervous disorder. They boast, that they are open -fn the sin and yet are hiding out from God and bis agencies.” ZEB VANCE~GRANGE TO MEET THURSDAY Zeb Vance Grange) will meet on, Thursday evening at Zeb Vance school at 8 o’clock instead of Wed nesday as was previously announced.

' ed With Leaves and Limbs from Many Trees Considerable damage to crops, and especially tobacco, was feared in this county and section today as the re sult of the high winds and heavy rains of last night and today. Other crops, including corn, which was bad ly blown down in many places, were also expected to suffer as the result of the storm, which was the outer fi‘ing/33 of the tropical disturbance that struck the North Carolina coast late Tuesday. All over town uxitty streets and sidewalks were littered with leaves and small branches of trees that had been blown off. There was no reported dam age to property other than this and no injuries to persons. Little had been learned from the rural sections as to the results of the windstorm, but there were grave fears of considerable damage. Hardly more than naif of the tobacco crop, if even that in some sections, has been har vested here, and for that, reason great est fears are felt for damage there. One grower said here today that he had not noted great damage in his community, but some who had been along the highway said ,t£>at tobacco had been badly blown down in open! fields, though that close to, wooded] areas appeared to have been some- i what protected from the full'force of the winds. _ The effects of the storm began to be felt here early Tuesday evening, and the intensity of the wind increased during the night. While there was plenty of wind early this afternoon, it appeared there was an abtement from the peak of the s'orm, and the i weather forecast was for moderation late in the day and tonight and for fair weather Thursday. The full extent of the damage from the storm is not expected to be realiz ed or learned here before tomorrow, ■■ ■ ■ t actually plan on prevent the steel from following its natural tend t-u 6 ants w^en we chose the ency to buckle under pressure makes the sturdiest bodies for the new Chevrolet.

Some anxiety was felt here today, too, for relatives of some local people who are still vacationing on the coast, and especially at Nag’s Head, a sec tion which appeared to be bearing the •brunt of the storm.

They found the ta.sk a continuing dif ficult one, but plugged away in the hope of completing the work by the end of the week. The white list has ben ntirly com pleted, and the corporations have been gone over also. The attention of the group at the present is concen trated on the colored list. Indications are that some rather sharp cuts have been made in values, and there was no certainty today as to what the total valuation for the city and county would be. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 23, 1933 MRS.
