Stating that the code for week ly and semi-weekly newspapers ] ifies. must alhpt uniform service charg es and frfiedules for trust services- One of the outstanding changes in the operation of the banks under the new code will be the reduction of interest on time deposits from four to three per cent.

Judge Hoyle Sink dissolved the temporary restraining order at the hearing which wm held in the matter at Charlotte Fri day evening. The superior court jurist in his ruling held that the board of city commissioners had the authority to call the special election and that the one Saturday on which the regis- tr.ation books were not opon was not material. The plaintiffs through their coun sel, Judge Tam C. Bowie, of West Jefferson, indicated that an appe.al from Judge Sink’s decision would be taken. The board of commissioners was represented by Solicitor John R. Jones, and Attorney J- A. Rousseau appeared for certain local citizens who opposed the efforts of the plaintiffs to have the election de clared illegal.

':Dtgt;ille.\ coumitteewbmenr A concerted effort for the return of Rev. J. H. Armbrust as pastor of the North Wilkesboro Methodist church for another year is now be ing made. Methodists are being joined by local civic organizations and other citizens irkthis moyement and before the anniifal conference is held, the bishop will have in his hands several petitions requesting that the local minister be sent back here. Rev. Mr. Armbrust has served four years here, having come to North Wilkesboro in the fall of 1929. If he were not in the midst of a great church and civic im provement program which almost demands his return, there would be no doubt that he would be assign ed to another pastorate next year under the four-year rule. Church and civic leaders of the city, however, point out that Rev. Mr, Armbrust’s services are badly needed for at least another year. The Wilkes Citizens’ Association, of which he is chairman, is doing a great work in its war against crime and this program, it is re marked, has not advanced to a point where someone else could pick up the leadership and carry on as efficiently for someone else to start now with the city welfare and do the work that will be needed so greatly during the winter just a- head- While these are not strictly church activities, church leaders believe that the bishop will look upon them as being just as vital as a church building program which has caused the four-year rale to be ignored on many occasions. ’The campaign in behalf of Rev. Mr. Armbrust’s return will contin ue unabated until the conference meets if there is no word that re moves all hope prior to that time.
