1.000 being the lowest estimate of
the number. About 75 of the old
students of the school were there,
aud the reunion with their old
school fellows was very pleasant
indeed. The feature of the occa
sion was a speech by Senator Lee
S. Overman, who spoke for an
hour and a quarter. The speech
was an able one and most eagerly
listened to. Senator Overman
Bpoke largely on national issues,
touching on the subject of States
rights, the Appalachian Park and
other live matters of interest to
North Carolinians. The manag

fortunate in securing this elo
