1 Truth Community Happenings
of Interest to us.
COMPLIMENT TO THE RECORD.
Truth, March 24. —Sometime ago a
resident of tms community, returning
from a business trip to our quaint,
picturesque county seat, had occasion
to stop icrr a few moments at a well
known Chatham county village, and
was very much amused at the method
by whicn a merchant was trying to
learn from what part of the county
our good friend hailed. It seems no di
rect question was asked as to names
but it was very plain what he wanted
to know. He was told that the person
was a resident of that part of the
county which, evidently was ignored
j and forgotten until tax listing and
j tax-paying time came,
j The point in question. Why should
any section of any county, and espec
ially a section which in many re
spects is one of the leading commu
nities, be obsessed with that idea,
i South of the S. A. L. railroad is
found some of the best farming land
J that can be found anywhere; the
people (and people make communi
ties) are as a rule God-fearing, hard
working, law-abiding and honest. |
j Probably more taxes are collected
i than in any other like area. Local j
, pride in good schools, good roads,'
! and other worth-while community as- j
| sets is not lacking. Why then should
j one feel that this part of the county
is forgotten and ignored ? What are
1 the conditions that cafuse these people
]to have that feeling toward county
I authorities ? We do not know that
j such is the case. Why can’t matters
be adjusted so that the county admin
istration can have the sympathy, sup
port and cooperation of all sections
of this county ? Any administration
in any county in order to be a work
ing success needs the hearty co-opera
tion and willing support of all sec
tions. It seems something should be
done to create a better understand
ing of the situation. One of the many
admirable traits of Editor Shaw, and ,
one that is winning many friends for I
him, is his stand for fair play, aiid
we believe that he will get a concep
tion of things as they are.
The people of the Truth district
were very glad to have Mr. Shaw at !
the school, but deeply regretted that
upon his first visit should occur such
a disgraceful affair.
On last Friday, during the opening
exercises of the school ,the pupils
gave a rising vote of thanks to The !
Chatham Record for the help it ren- j
dered in advertising our play, “The i
Path Across the Hill.”
Misses Clara Cotten, Carrie Lee |
Cotten and Cleo Cotten, and Messrs j
Leaman Reynolds and Robert Cotten
motored to Raleigh Wednesday for
the Ham-Ramsey services.
Mr. Bruce Weathers, of Duncan,
an agent for the Westinghouse radio
machines, spent two evenings last j
week at the home of Mrs. J. H. Cot- ,
ten, demonstrating the radio.
Miss Orlan Mull spent the week
end with friends at Raleigh.
MR. PIERCE IS NOW IN CUBA.
The editor of The Record received
a card a few days ago from Mr Frank
Pierce, who is on the United States
Steamship, Denebola, with the U. S.
Navy. He is now enjoying a short
stay in Santiago de Cuba.
After his recent visit home at Pitts
boro, Mr. Pierce went to Brooklyn,
N. Y., and from that point was sent
with his command to Cobra, Porto
Rica, thence to St. Thomas, in the
West Indies Islands, back to Cobra,
Porto Rica and then to Cuba..
He is enjoying himself very much
seeing the world, and keeps in the
best of health. Since his enlistment
in the navy Mr. Pierce has been in
almost every country in the world,
and being of a retentive memory he
has greatly profited by his experi
His letters from Porto Rico, West
Indies and from Cuba, to his rela
tives here are indeed interesting and
has been read by the Record editor
with a great deal of interest.
Mr. Pierce will write a letter soon
for The Record and we are sure our
readers will be glad to see it.

NOT ALL WRONG WHO DANCE.
Corinth, March 24.—Vest Mims and
family, of New Hill, spent Sunday
with Mr. and Mrs. L. H. Mims at
Corinth. Mrs. L. H. Mims returned
with them for a few days stay in
New Hill and now Mr. Lonnie is
“keeping batch.” the first time, we
suspect, that he has done this for
many years, as Mr. and Mrs. Mims
are now all alone —their children all
having married and living away from
the old home.
! Mr. and Mrs. M. I. Ellis, of Siler

S. W. Harrington. Mr. Harrington

Arthur Riddle lost a meat house, a
! brooder and 100 baby chicks last
1 week, due to the lamp used in the
brooder setting fire to the building.
Maybe you had too much “oil” in
your lamp, Arthur, and it blew off j
the lid from the dome. j
j Anything nowadays that smells of
“oil” is under suspicion and subject j
1 to investigation without notice, so you
! can take some consolation in the fact j
i that the “oil evidence” was effective
Miss Marie Phillips spent Sunday
at her home in Bonlee.
Miss Lelia Johnson accompanied by
Miss Carrie Lee Cross, spent Sunday
at Miss Johnson’s home in Pittsboro.
Mr. Bob Sexton and family, of Fu
quay Springs, spent Sunday with Mr.
and Mrs. T. V. Sexton.
So Mr. Ham says that we are
“either a liar or a eunuch.” Well,
now, we personally know a few good
men who are not eunuchs, who dance
and enjoy it, when the right oppor
tunity is presented, who can ride, row
or swim like an athlete, who are mar
ried and have families of their own,
and yet who have never in their lives
contributed in any way to the statu
tory negligence of any woman.
Mr. Ham is doing some wonderful
work in Raleigh, and his work merits
the support of every one within reach
of the tabernacle, but he most cer
tainly is a grossly misinformed man,
if he includes in his above category
all men who dance or who go in the
Even in the ministry Mr. Ham will
find a few “goats” among the sheep.
But just for that he is not going to
give un his good work as* a great
evangelist. We condemn any drunken
sensuous brawl that masquerades as :
a dance a swimming party, but we
do not believe that the healthful, phy- -i
sical development of a robust, sound '
body, derived through the art of , '
snpenvisal swimming or dancing, i
should or even justly come under
the sweeping denunciation that Mr. i
