No Serious Crop Quota Violations yery Few Excess Plantings Found, and These Errors of Measurement Workers active all over the country In measuring tobacco and cotton crops to determine the degree of com pliance of growers with their crop re duction contracts signed with the Federal government habe found so far no serious violations of the contracts, it was said today at the office of County Agent J. W. Sanders, who is directing the work. While the work so far has hardly more than gotten under way on a large scale, the committees measuring acreage have found that in most in stances the growers have planted slightly less than their quotas. In the few instances where there have been excesses, the amount has been only In small fractions and apparently due to mistaken judgment as to the amount of land put into cultivation in the given crop, it was said. Some 35 workers are engaged in the measuring process, and they receive $285 per day for their services, fur nishing their own cars and gasoline and oth'M supplies necessary. It Is expected that several weeks will be required for the compratlon of the job. Compliance with the contracts has been found to be general on farms that have been visited. The glowers not only are receiving benefits from the government for acreage rentals, but they are living up to their pledges to the best of their ability, the inspec tions thus far made indicate for Vance county. f NEW Ml TYPHOID CLINICS Engagement In Sandy Creek Township Announced by Dr. Mitchell With several thousands already ino culated against typhoid fever in aVrce. county since the 'summer campaign began some weeks ago, new localities for clinics wft-.e announced today by Dr. Z.

Henderson Vulcanizing Co. DISTRIBUTORS —Vance, Warren, Franklin and Granville Counties* Henderson Daily Dispatch Mr. Morris Wants School Put On Raleigh Highway In a vigorous statement of his views, Henry T. Monis, prominent merchant, in a signer', statement toi*ay, advocat ed location of the new Henderson high school on the national hignway south of the city opposite the Gary home place. Refe; ring to restrictions im pased by the county commissioners in theiv do lid resolution that the new school must be v’ithin the city limits, he suggested "if necessary, extend the corporate limits’’. His statement in full follows: “There is 1 c doubt that the com mittee named' t o select a site for the high Echo i is having a l ard time. If they select a site in East Hender son then West Henderson will kick. If they select a site in South Henderson then North Henderson will kick. “I do not know what the committee has done toward selecting a place and it is a most impoftant proposition be fore them, Regardless of where they put this building, there will be a world cf howls. * I am going to make a suggestion ebove my own name as to where I think this building should be put. If you go out on the road to Raleigh just iieyond the Durham and Raleigh Rail road you will come to a large level field between the Railroad and Hill Top Service Station No. 2. This is. as you wil note, almost perfectly level. A beautiful location for a school build ing, a business concern or anything else. “You can buy property out there, in my opinion, much cheaper than you can get it inside the corporate limits. ; As far as distance is concerned, the distance will not be any greater for a good many people who live in Hen derson. “As stated above, regardless of where the building is put, some of the children will have to ride. In these days it is not good principle for them to walk to school. They must all ride. “Therefore, I recommend without a single regret that this committee con sider the above proposition. I have with me a good many citizens of Hen derson. ‘ If necessary, extend the corporate limits HENRY T. MORRIS.
