There are some mighty fine joints on the highways to the coastal regional of this well- planned state and they show siii'ns of- doing a lot of business. Wee even have a Polish buFg in N. C. (Warsaw to be exact). I THE DURHAM MinisLiiul Alliance has taken upon itself the job of applying sufficient pressure to'"the people of Dur ham to raise an amount which will be equal to the costs of far ther prosecuting the Case of Doris Lyons and Officer Gat‘.*s of the Durham Police depart ment, This is a notable step • n the part of the ministers of the city who want to see justice dune in the case. The case has been appealed to the Superior eoui't and added expenses have made it necessary to secure additioial funs to counteract them. Do your part to help the minister’s fight for Justice. When askea to donate to this cause, give all you can.
