County Tire Board Will Be
Rationing Body For Autos
And Trucks in Graham
An announcement made today
by Mayor Hinson and Judge
Thompson asks that those people
in Graham and surrounding terri-
tory who are eligible to receive a
new ear or truck please make their
intentions known if they wish to
purchase one this year. This is
necessary in* a survey being made
to find out about the number of
ears and trucks to be needed to
meet the demand here.
The county tire rationing board
will be the governing body of this
rationing. If you are not familiar
with the rulings, you may contact
one of the local officials of the
program who will be glad to gire
you what information they have.
The auto situation is about the
same as the tire set-up, those who
are eligible for one are eligible
for the other in most instances.
Jess Tackett, at the city office
L. B. Scott at the tire office ir
the courthouse are the ones t<
give this information to. Your im
mediate attention would be ap
predated, as the local office wish-
es to complete the survey and
send their report to the state of
fice as soon as possible.

DECATUR, Jan. 18.—Charlie
Ray Crutchfield, about 32, of Gra-
ham, was shot to death by his
father-in-law, Frank Howell, at
the latter's farm home four miles
west of Decatur Sunday at 1:30
Howell was arrested at the farm
a few minutes later by Sheriff
H. M. Branch and a deputy, B. A.
Moore, who had been notified by
neighbors of the shooting. Crutch-
field was dead when they arrived.
At an inquest conducted by Justice
of the Peace N. P. Taylor, Dr. W.
T. Inabnett testified that two
blasts of shotgun pellets had kill-
ed Crutchfield almost instantly.
In a statement to the officers
Howell said he saw Crutchfield
approach the gate to the yard in
front of Howell’s home and called
to him to go away. When Crutch-
field entered the yard despite this
warning Howell fired first with a
.16 gauge shot gun, then with a
.410 gauge, he said. Howell was
charged with murder, and bond
was set at $5,000.
Sheriff Branch said there were
no witnesses to the shooting. How-

ried to Crutchfield about three
years could not be located imme-

Mr. Beck, a citizen of Corpus
Christi, spoke on matters of spe-
cial interest to all K. of P. mem-
date, Mr. Brooks was advised.
The preliminary details of the
passenger car rationing program where the has been visiting,
as drawn by the OPA include:
(1) A rationing plan modeled
after that developed recently for
the rationing of new tires, to be
carried out through the same local
boards that are now set up in ev-
ery county of the country.
(2) Establishment of a list of
eligible buyers, including (A)
physicians, surgeons, visiting
nurses, or farm veterinarians; (B)
persons engaged in fire-fighting,
crime prevention or detection, en-
forcement .of laws relating to the
protection of public heqjlh and
safety, and the transportation of
mail; (C) persons who had pur-
chased as of January 2 new cars
then in dealers’ hands but who
had not been able to get delivery
on that date.
(3) Provision that such buyers,
including government agencies
needing cars for the purposes list-
ed, will have to secure certificates
from local rationing boards per-
mitting them to make purchases.
It is hoped that government agen-
cies falling within the eligible
classes will anticipate their new
car needs for some months hence,
thus tending to move the vehicles
out of dealers’ hands quickly. In
this connection, the rationing
boards will probably be instructed
to give consideration to future as
well as present needs of such gov-
ernmental agencies in issuing cer-
(4) In addition, there will be
certain “exempt” categories of
purchasers who will not have to
secure certificates in order to buy
new automobiles but who will be I
required to supply information as
to the use of the vehicle: These
will include: automobile dealers
buying new cars for resale; the
following Federal Government
agencies—the Reconstruction Fi-
nance Corp., the Army and Navy,
the Maritime Commission, the
Panama Canal, the Coast and Ge-
odetic Survey^ the Coast Guard,
the Civilian Aeronautic Authority,
the National Advisory Commis-
sion for Aeronautics, and the Of-
fice of Scientific Research and
Development; purchasers for for-
eign governments under the Lend-
Lease Act, and holders of certain
high priority ratings.
The auto freeze order applies to
automobile, trucks, buses and
trailers until rationing goes into
effect. The prohibition of sales
applies to all 1942 model vehicles,
regardless of the number of miles
they have been used, and to all
other models that have been used
for less than 1,000 miles. Under
the order, regularly established
dealers may buy and receive ve-
hicles otherwise affected, but can-
not sell them except under certain
provisions. These provisions al-
low certain sales to the Army,
Navy, designated governmental
agencies, holders of A-l-j or higher
preference ratings for vehicle pur-
chase, and holders of Army and
Navy prime contracts assigned an
A-Lj rating or higher.
