sadin bulletin Page Seven The Community Christmas Tree On account of rain, the Community ristmas Tree exorcises were held in ® Theater instead of on the School grounds, as planned. The capacity of our big. Theater was taxed to accom- J^odate the great crowd of children arid grown-ups” that gathered there on ristmas Eve. Did anyone know there 'vere so many children in Badin? They the Christmas songs lustily, and 'vhen “Old Santy” (Mr. E. F. Smith) ^ppeared. My! what a good time they child received a bulging ^ ocking full of good things, and it is ®^'d that some got away with more than one. ■ It was a great treat for the kiddies; departments that' con- ‘Duted, and to “Mr. Tallassee,” let us express our thanks. W Vi connection, we wish to mention appreciation the generous action of le^, Shop men, who took the • ^ contributing to the Tree, decid- ® to help the children of Badin have time instead of giving gifts to themselves. It was a fine thing 0. and the Community appreciates it.

News The force of the influenza has been so strong in Badin, as elsewhere thruout the country, as to cause us to suspend for some weeks all Lodge meetings. Therefore we have very little to report in the way of activities. As the situation has since cleared up to a very considerable extent, and we begin to feel that we are about getting out of the woods, we are again getting busy in mind, if not in action, and hope to have soon an opportunity to resume our meetings and otherwise be m a better position to carry on the busmess of our Order. On Thursday, the twenty-sixth of November, Suez Temple, No. 73, of the D 0 K. K., held a ceremonial at Char lotte,' to’ which thirty or more of our number went. About three hundred m all were present. Our Charlotte broth ers did all in their power to give us a royal good time; and that they were suc cessful in so doing we are each and all ready to testify. After the trip from Badin, which was made by auto to Char lotte with more or less mishap, we reached the “Queen City of the Caro- linas” about three p. m. After registering at headquarters, we were taken m charge bv the reception committee, and a gioup .".mbW in fr.n. .« th. Meckl.n- Trg County Courthouse. A brave photo man exercised his camera on us At this writing, we have not seen a proof ^^ the result; but we feel sure it must be a wonderful view-considering the background-of collective beauty. After this picture was taken, we were loaded Lto autos, and taken out to Camp Greene and elsewhere to see the sights, which were greatly mterestmg to al . Ifter a ride thru the Camp and beauti ful Myers Park and Dilworth, we landed at the Presbyterian Hospital, and ther saw the rooms which have been fitted up at the expense of the Knights of Pythias and other Orders. These rooms looked fine, and the spirit which prompted this action on the part of our Order and the other Orders seemed to accord so well with the true spirit of brotherhood and love that it did us all good to know of this, and to see it being exercised in such a practical manner. Dr. R. B. Alexander, who has charge of this hospital, did much to show us all there was to see; and it gave us much pleasure to extend our thanks to him. The manner in which the “Greater Charlotte spirit” has exercised itself during the last ten or fifteen years is plain to see. Charlotte haa within this length of time developed from a slow, easy-going town to a busy, progressive, and attractive city of- beautiful homes. The “home spirit” seems to be upper most, and this in itself is much to ad mire. Mayor McNinch, who himself is a D. 0. K. K., attended the ceremonial, and also made a short talk, in which he “turned over the keys of the city to us.” We were made to feel welcome, and enjoyed ourselves to the utmost. May our Charlotte brothers live long and prosper. Thos C. Sheppard Reporter for K. of P. and D. O. K. K. Maryville Town Manager Here We were glad to have with us, in De cember, Mr. P. W. Moore, the Town Manager of the Maryville Plant. Mr. Moore came to study our Welfare Work in Badin, preliminary to establishing a similar department at Maryville. He proved to be a man of unique and genial personality, and a delightful visitor. Come again, Mr. Moore! Eight Things That Help to Make a Real Man 1. Self-control. 2. Love for home life. 3. Truthfulness. 4. Hatred of profanity. 5. Respect toward womanhood. 6. Knowledge of good English. 7. Sense of duty. 8. A goal, and the determination to reach it. —N. C. R. Ne%os
