A Strong Speech by Congressman Pcu
and A Big Barbecue Dinner j
Make Thursday a Notable
Last Thursday was a noteworthy j
day in Pittsboro’s calendar. Despite!
the unusual lack of interest in the ap
proaching election and the foregone
conclusion that there is really no con
test in state, district, or county, the
court house was crowded by those whe
came to hear Congressman E. W. Pou,
a candidate to succeed himself for a
baker’s dozenth time, assembled in the
court house last Thursday and after a
speech notable for its straightfor
wardness and good sense, enjoyed ar.
abundant barbecue provided by the
It happened that this was the first
time the writer ever heard Mr. Pou.
Accordingly, he better understands
now why for twenty-five years that
gentleman has represented this dis
trict in Congress, and this year had
no opposition in the primary and has
none in the clc'' L; '' r ‘ next Tuesday.
A few minutes sufficed to indicate
| that E. W. Pou is a strong man, while
| his unimpeachable integrity and well-
I known devotion to the people’s inter
! ests combine with his ability to make
) him worthy of the continued esteem
and confidence of the people of his dis
In a quiet and stfaight-forward
manner, he talked sense to his peo
ple. Every sentence was pertinent,
either confirmatory of former mature
judgments of his hearers or calculated
to awaken real thought.
Probably the most striking thing in
the address was his hasty summary of
of the Wilson administration, a state
ment of the fact that it handled sev
eral times more money than any oth
er in the history of the country and
under circumstances that were most
trying, and yet, despite every effort
of the following administration to dis-
fraud, not one real case of wil
ful mismanagement was discovered,
j On the other hand, the Harding ad
j ministration was hardly seated when
| rascality became rampant. One cab-
J inet officer was carrying his handbag
with SIOO,OOO of bribe money in it;
another cabinet officer has just been
on trial for alleged crimes and only a
f©W days ago was hapny to have the
jury tie in his case; the head of the
bureau handling the funds for dis
abled soldiers has been convicted of
wretched roguery and is serving a
term -in the penitentiary. /
Cl c ring with a few personal ro.-,
marfts, Mr. Pou regretted that his
health does not permit him to visit
the people as much as he did when he
After the speaking, Chairman W.
P. Horton announced that a barbecue
dinner would be served, and a long
cue was formed, and as fast as trays
of the delicious meat, abundantly ac
companied with bread and chopped
onions, could be handed out, the crowd
was served to satiation. Three hun
dred pounds of pork went to make the
feast provided by the county’s worthy
Democratic candidates. BCO trays were
served, it'was stated.

SILK MILL EXTENSION
J W. Ellington Builder cf Extension
f It is gratifying to note that the
work on the exter.s on of the local
I silk mill is under headway. Two al
- ditions are planned, a 45-foot one on
the east end and a slightly shorter
one on the west end. Mr. E. W. El
lington has the contract for the east
~nd addition, and is at work on it.
The other extension is expected to be
buTt after this one is completed.
The two extensions will almost
double the capacity of the building.
,This, with the erection recently of
several cottages for employees, indi
rates an intention on the part of the
owner to extend the plant as rapidly
as the circumstances justify. The
mill is already an important factor
in the community’s business, and the
prospects are that it will constantly
become a greater one.

KEEPER OF BUOYS
MUST BE WATCHFUL
Veteran of Thirty-Five Years
Tells of His Job.
Woods Hole, Mass. —Just as the old
woman riding the broom had to sweep
the cobwebs from the heavens and
i light the stars each night, so the
l keeper of buoys must sweep clean the
j waters, marking the bad spots with
spars and buoys, some of which he
must light up at night.
“Thirty-five years, winter and sum
mer, I’ve betn at this job,” says A. D.
Wilde, head of the department of
j buoys for the coast from the* tip of
Cape Cod t<> the boundary oßJlbode
Island. “Three hundred buoys are in
| my care in Buzzards bay and Vine
“They have to be watched. The
bell buoys must be kept free ,of rust,
far enough out of the water for the
gentle roll of the tide to sound their
iron bell. The whistling buoys must
have their windpipes clear, the valves
strong, so that the same fall and rise
of the waves will draw air into their
throats. The light buoys . must be
kept p’riJ with the fuel.
“And everyone of the 300 must be
! hauled out of the water and ashore
cnce a year, to be scraped and cleaned
and painted up and put back fresh.
That’s the werk of my tender, the
j “The ‘garden’ of the keeper of the
j buoy blooms with these strange llow
ers of the sea. There are prim ‘nun’
| buoys, black conicai-sliaped forms like
j the headdress of a medieval sister
,of charity. The old-fashioned favor
! ites, the can buoys and their rigid
brothers, the spar buoys. All sink
into useless stolidity at night, or in
. The bell buoys are massive, with
| their pyramidial frames, ten or twelve
! feet high, supporting a heavy iron bell.
! It takes a 9,000-pound mooring to
| hold them to the shoal they warn of,
| day and night, fog or clear.
The light buoys are of the same
type, but newer style. Their lights,
in cases of the latest proMucts, are
made to burn from a supply of pitch
j gas in cans, lasting six to eight
months. They burn steadily.

; Educators Give Junior
Red Cross High Praise
Growing recognition by 7 leading ed

achievement of the Junior Red Cross
in the last fiscal year.
Included in those which have taken
especially, favorable cognizance of
Junior Red Cross efforts are the
World Federation of Education Asso

1925, the Department of Superinten-
J donee of, the National Education As
-1 sociation, at Washington, 1926, and
j the National Education 'Association
in Philadelphia, JisiM, IC-J.. Various
State educational bodies have con

As a phase of their work, the Jun

exchange of correspondence, with
similar Junior organizations in vir

j Was* Over, But Red Cross
Nurses Are* Ever On Duty
Has the romantic picture of the Red
Cross Nurse faded with the war days?
It has been more than 12 years since
that first contingent of brave women
to go to the war zoue sailed from
America to make an undying record
of service behind every battle front.
For an answer to their whereabouts
today, it is only necessary to refer to
any large disaster of recent years in
which the Red Cross rendered relief.
Wherever there was injury and suf
fering the Red Cress nurse will ba
found to have been on active duty.
These nurses are enrolled under the
American Red Cross as a reserve of
the Army, Navy and U. S. Fublia
Health Service, at all times ready to
serve in war or peace. This reserve
of Red Cross nurses aggregates 43,503
women who have met the highest
standard in the nursing profession.
