The annual memorial held at
New Elam Christian church Satur
day was a complete success from
every standpoint. The forenoon
was given over almost entirely to
the children. The devotional ser
vices were conducted by Mr. W. A.
Drake, who read the 23rd psalm,
and led in prayer. The welcome
address was extended by Mr. G. F.

After the program was carried out
by the children, the Memorials
were read by Miss Vada Goodwin,
Blanche Holt, Alice Webster, and

Held at Antioch
Memorial services were held at
Antioch Christian church Sunday,
May the Bth. The day was an
ideal one. In the morning the pas
tor, Rev. J. S. Cardon, preached a
very able sermon, after which the
children were marched to the ceme
tery and distributed the flowers
among the graves. After that an
intermission of more than an hour
was had and the good women
spread dinner in the grove at the
church and a feast was enjoyed.
There was every variety of good
things to eat that can be imagined.
During the afternoon a program
was rendered and as Rev. J. S.
Cardon had to leave for High
Point where he was to start a re
vival, the program was left in
charge of the former Superinten
dent W. R. Oldham. The audience
was treated to talks of an elevating
and entertaining nature; all short
but full of meaning and worthy of
the careful attention given them.
Those speaking were Messrs. W. H.
Tyler of Golston, T. B. Beal of
Bear creek, W. P. Horton, James L.
Griffin of Pittsboro.
Mr. W. P. Horton was a new
speaker at this place but he ac

what he had to say.

School [Busses ,Are
Protected By Law
Attorney General BrUmmitt Cites
Statute Requiring Motorists To
Come to Stop
Raleigh, May 14.—North Caro
lina has plenty of law covering the
requirements that automobiles stop
when they drive up to busses load
ed with school children, Attorney
General Brummitt said today, in
making a statement relative to the
appeal of some unknown mother a
ow days ago.
The letter from the woman, who
was upset about the school passen
gers, said that she is the mother of
nine and the stepmother of ten chil
dren. The carlessness of automo
bile drivers* in approaching the bus
arrying school children appalled
her. She asked Governor McLean
to do something about it, but of
ourse the governor has no power
of legislation. Attorney General
Brummitt finds the law and he
“Consequent upon a letter from
some lady to Governor McLean,
some discusion has arisen with re
spect to the need of a law regulat
ing the approach of automobiles to
ousses discharging school children.
There is already an act on the sub
ject. It is chapter 265, public laws
of 1925. It is as follows:
“ ‘That no person operating any
motor vehicle on the public roads
shall pass, or attempt to pass, any
public school bus, while the same
is standing on the said public road
taking on or putting off school
without first bringing
said motor vehicle to a full stop at
a distance of not less than 50 feet
from said school bus/
“Violation of the act is made a
misdemeanor punishable by fine not
to exceed SSO or imprisonment not
to exceed 30 days.”

Transforming a windswept
barren island —a stretch of
waste land which for centu
ries had been used as a cattle
range where cliffs made by the
fire-gods of ages ago towered
over the waste —into a veritable
garden spot with a model city, sur
rounded by acres and acres of fer
tile pineapple fields—this is the
story of Lanai, one of the fairy
like islands of the Hawaiian group.
As you drive along over miles of
macadamized roads, from the con
crete wharf at Kaumalapau harbor
through 1200 acres of pineapple
plantation, you get your first im
pression of the Island of Lanai, an
impression of orderliness and pre
cision. Not a single plant of the
mathematically laid out plots
strays an inch from the soldierly
ranks. Even the mules that plow
the soil seem to hold their ears at
a mathematical angle.
Suddenly you round a curve and
see in the distance the purple of
the Oahu hills.
A few more miles of white road
and you are in Lanai City. You are
not surprised, after the prelude of
perfect order found in the pineap
ple fields to find the city itself a
veritable “spotless town.”
Citizens of Lanai who are proud
of the civic cleanliness of their
town, are just as proud of the or
derliness of their pineapple planta
You notice the workers look very
different from the average farmer
who works in the fields. You will
be told that this is because the

of workers in the fields, just as
