KINSTON Most, out-of-lown
ess refer io our Holloway Pool as
oeing one of the nicest in the area.
We whole-heartedly agree and so
do the youngsters. Ordinarily the
poo! opens each afternoon at 2 p.
m and they live from one day to
another with that fact foremost
in their minds. Watching them
flock to the poo! daily, we some
times wonder how they entertain
ed themselves prior to the opera
tion of the pool It's wholesome fun
keeps the kids occupied and they
certainly enjoy it.
We had the pleasure of viewing
se veral old model cars which pass
ed through Kinston a short time
ago. This caravan of 'horseless
carriages” passed rapidly down
Queen St. and made a striking
sight in the bright sunlight. The
occupants were well suited to the
bright colored old fashioned j
clothes. Noted with considerable
interest was one young woman j
wearing hign top buttoned shoes
Seems as if “moderately higher" I
fend prices have, been forecast for I

If you can't be a pine on the

shrub by the side of the rill; Be a i
bush if you can't be a tree.
If you can't be a bush, be a bit j
of ihe grass. And some highway
happier make; If you can't be 0
muskie, then just be a bass. But
'.he liveliest bass in the lake!
We can't all be captains, we’ve
got to be crew, there's something
for all of us here; there’s big work
to do. and there’s lesser to do. And
I ihe task you must do is the near, j
