Meekins at Elizabeth City has issued an order for Liquidation of the Feck Manufactur ing Company at Warren+on. following failure of the creditors of th*» cotton mills to agree to a plan of reorgani zation, it was learned here today. No date has been set, so far as has been learned, for throwing the property onto the market, but advices from Warrantor. are that the mills will be advertised and sold to the h'rrh c st bid der within the next three months. In the meantime, the mill continues to operate under the supervision of Judge Thomas H. Calvert, who sev eral months aero was named trustee by the Federal court, after tempor ary bankruptcy had been ordered. It is understood the mills have made some money under Judge Calvert's operation. The plan of operation submitted before Judge Meekins. according to Warernton advices, was to give all creditors with claims above $25 or SSO first mo'tgages on the property and to continue operation. This plan is said to have been rejected by the Citizens Bank and Trust Company of Henderson, which held approximate ly 523,000 worth of notes at the time j the mill closed It is said that the . proposed arrangement met with ap- j proval of other creditors represent- j ed a the meeting held. Court procedure was started some . months ago. aid L. C. Kinsey, the I general manner of the mills, was j tr>ed in t r aren County Superior : Court on several charges, but was ac- | quitted on all of them.

But the same processing taxes have benefited the South and the West — and those regions are likely to be stronger than ever for the New Dear The New England textile situation (say the New Dealers) has been growing bad for half a century.

It is indicated that June mere-y was a beginning of a rush in this direction.

SCHOOL SECRETARY IS WELL EQUIPPED Griffin Fitted for Job Drop ped by Martin, Expert on School Work iMilly llMpaf *•!* lit 111** Walter Hotel, RT £ C. MASK ICR VII, 1,. Raleigh. Aug. 10.—Lloyd E Grif cm. of Edenton. Chowan county, will be the- new executive secretary of the State School Commission. He was elected to this post Friday by the commission after it had reluctantly accepted the resignation of Leßoy Martin, effective about September 1. who is leaving the employ of the State to become associated with the trust department of the Wachovia Bank and Trust Company in Win ston. Salem. Martin had been secre tary of the school commission and of the old State Board of Equalization, which vreceded it, for eight years. He is generally regarded here as the best informed man concerning the schools and school administration in North Carolina, and as being very largely responsible for the success of the administration of the schools un der the new Statewide school law. Griffin, however, is regarded as an able successor to Martin and as one who will carry on the administration of school finances glong the same lines that were pioneered by Martin. Griffin, a member of the State Senate n both 1933 and 1935, and chairma of the Senate Committee on Educa tion in 1935, had a large part in the writing of both the 1933 and ' 1935 school machinery acts, :vid for years has been recognized as a keen stu dents and of school management, es pecially from the business and finan cial angle. Those who know him say that Griffin will watch the expendi ture of school funds with just as much caution as has Martin, Griffin, like Martin, is a lawyer, a graduate of Wake Forest and of Harvard law schools. He is likewise a World War veteran. There is genuine regret in all cir cles here at the resignation of Mar. tin, especially among the members of the State School Commission. For while he was regarded by some scho: superintendents and teachers as theii arch enemy, most of the superinten dents and ‘eachers who really knew Martin and who had dealings with him realized tha he had the good or the schools at heart as much as any one and that his was the difficult task of trying to see that the schoo s did not spend any more than the Gen eral Assembly appropriated for them. It was a tough job and he took a or. of cussing in doing what the law ie quired him to do. | ISS6 —(Francis X. Dercum. phil^‘ I phia neurologist, born there. April 23, 1931.

Will Get Expert To Run Railroad (Continued from Page One.) ern North Carolina through which it runs and for rflany years was a very profitable road. I am convinced that there is just as much business for this railroad now as at any time in the past, and that it fan be made into a very valuable and profitable rail road under the proper kind of man agement. I am also convinced that it can still aid very greatly in the development of the entire section which it serves.” For the past eight or ten years, trie railroad has been permitted to de teriorate and has not been maintain ed as it should have been, Governor Ehringhaus said. But under the new plan of operation, and with an ex perienced railroad man as operating manager, the governor believes thdt it can soon be put back into excellent condition nad on a paying basis. Just how soon the board of direc fors will be able to employ an oper. ations manager and take over the ac tual operation of the road from the Norfolk Southern, which has been op erating it for the past year, despite the fact that its lease was 'cancelled, about a year ago, is not definitely known. But the governor indicated that he was anxious to have the com pany operate the road as soon as pos sible.
