ENLARGEMENT AT BYNUM
Odell Mfg. Co. Erecting an Additional
Building 100x30 Feet
It is gratifying to learn that the
Odell Manufacturing Company is en
larging its plant at Bynum by the
addition of a building 100x30 feet. The
foundation is already laid and bricks
are being placed upon the ground for
the erection of the walls.
This mill is a -very successful qne,
and it is evident that the increase in
size is justified by the success of the
present management. It cannot be
stated how many additional spindles
will be added, but the addition should
give employment to quite a number of

Pittsboro observed Halifax Day

Mr. R. G. Shannonhouse, rector of
the Episcopal church, opened the
programme with prayer. The state
songs, “Ho for Carolina” and “The
Old North State” were sung by , the
school. Miss Clyde Edwards read the
Attorney D. L. Bell, in a short ad
dress, gave a very concise summary of

cently become Chathamites were the
names of those who were delegates
to the convention from this county.
They were Ambrose Ramsey, Joshua
Rosser, Jeduthan Harper, John
Thompson, and Elisha Cane. Most of
these names are still familiar ones
in, the county. *
Another interesting feature of the
programme was the presentation of
a beautiful North Carolina flag to
the school by the children of the Con
federacy. The Henry London Chap
; ter. > It, was presented with a few
well-chosen words by the leader of the
chapter,. Mass Carrie Jackson, and
very eloquently received by the prin

THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION
Marion Butler was overwhelmingly
outvoted on his organization plan at
the Republican State Convention held
at Durham last Thursday. However,
a large part of the 'reform demanded
by him was adopted at the instance
of the new national committeeman
Hayes, who seems easily to have as
sumed the leadership of the party.
Very little interest seems to have
been taken in the nomination of can
didates for the state offices. Chas.
A. Cannon of Concord was nominated
for the U. S. senate. He is a member
of the great cotton mill family. It
is hardly expected that he will accept
i the nomination. His name was pre
sented by Butler.
J. J. Jenkins, of Siler City, a can
didate for the ' state chairmanship,
did not get that position, which was
given to Brownlow Jackson, U. S.
marshal for the western district of
this state, who will give up his job
and devote his attention to the politi
cal affairs of his party. Mr. Jenkins
was nominated for corporation com
All Republicans attending from
Chatham were accounted delegates
and included the following and pos
sibly others whose names the Record
has not secured:
J. J. Jenkins, Mrs. Jenkins, S. D.
Johnson, R. H. Dixon, Walter John
son, Junius Matthews, Joe W. Moore,
W. B. Moore, J. C. Fesmire, M. H.

32 CLASS RSUmONS
AT UNIVERSITY FINALS
(The Chapel HHK Weekly)
Officers of about a score of
University classes extending
back over a period of forty
years—met in the Carolina Ton
last Saturday to lay plans for
the reunions at this coming com
mencement. Francis 0. Clark
son of Charlotte, alumni mar
shal, was the chairman of the
This promises to be the great
est reunion year in the history
of the University, The number
of returning alumni will be in
creased, it is thought, because of
the week-end schedule, Friday,
June 4, to Monday, June 7. It is
easier for men to get away from
their regular affairs then than
in the middle of the week.
The class suppers will take
place Friday evening, and Satur
day will be alumni day.
Thirty-two classes are booked
‘ for reunions this year: 1861,
1862,1863, 1866, 1867, 1868,
1881, 1882, 1883, 1886, 1887,
1888, 1891, 1892, 1893, 1896,
1897, 1898, 1901, 1902, 1903,
1906, 1911, 1912, 1913, 1916,
1917, 1918, 1921, 1922, 1923,
The reason for this unusual
schedule is that the General
Alumni Association has adopted
the so-called Dix plan. The es
sence of this plan is that the
members of a class shall come
back at the same time as mem
bers of the classes that were in
college with them, instead of at
five-year intervals. Thus the
returning alumnus is enabled to
see many of his old friends in
neighboring classes as well as in
- This is the “bridging-over”
year, to change from t*he old
plan to the Dix plan. The latter
will go into full effect in 1927.
At the meeting last Saturday
a considerable part of the time
was devoted to a discussion of
making the reunions more en
joyable to alumni—which re
sult can be achieved, of course,
only by a reduction in the vol
ume of useless and tiresome
It was unanimously agreed
that the business meeting of the
Alumni Association Saturday
morning, June 5, would be de
voted strictly to business, unac
companied by oratory, and would
be brought to a close as soon as
possible. Then will come an
hour or so of free' time for loaf
ing about the campus, and the
alumni luncheon will begin at
one o'clock in Swain Hall. Dr.
Mangum suggested that the
band play under the Davie pop
lar in the interval between the
business session and the
eon, and this received hearty ap
In the evening, at half past
eight o'clock, will come the
Alumni Assembly—a social
gathering for all alumni, their
families and their friends. It
is not to be a 'ball, yet there may
be some incidental dancing. It
is not to be a theatrical or musi
cal entertainment, yet there may
be a few scattered musical and
Daniel L. Grant, Alumni
Secretary, told the assembled
class officers of the measures
that would be taken to accom
modate the alumni. At least one
of the University dormitories
will be turned over to those who
bring their wives and daughters
with them. The stags will be
quartered in the quadrangle
dormitories. It is likely that the
main Lobby of the Library will
be used as Alumni Headquarters.
