A Little July 10th 1930 Delmar News

John F. Hunt, former motive power foreman of Delmar but who is now located at Cape Charles, has been the guest of Mr. and Mrs. James S Bell.

Practically all available rooms in private homes are being used by the extra force called by the Pennsylvania Railroad Company. All men available and all who have been furloughed have been called to help
move the potato crop. About 6000 cars have been moved so far, and it is anticipated that approximately 9000 more will be moved.

Delmar firemen are planning to attend the Delaware State firemen's parade to be held tomorrow at Georgetown. They will be accompanied by the Southern Division Band, with Glen T. Hastings directing.

The daily vegetable shipping report shows 644 carloads of potatoes shipped from the Eastern Shore of Virginia yesterday, and 35 cars from the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Total shipments from Virginia are 8366 cars and from Maryland 927 cars. The price averaged $2.50 to $2.60.

From the Eastern Shore of Maryland 42 cars of cucumbers were shipped yesterday and from the Eastern Shore of Delaware 6 cars. Total shipments of cucumbers have reached 139 cars, and from Delaware 9 cars. The price averaged $1 to $1.10.
