Involving a considerable amount of money, was consum mated on November 21st, follow ing negotiations which had been going on between Mr. Hafer and Mr. Gaddy for only a few days. The Hafer Chevrolet Company was opened here by Mr. Hafer sixteen months ago. and the firm has enjoyed a splendid pat- rtmage. Mr. Gaddy is an exper ienced automobile man. having during the past several years served as Chevrolet's distributor in both Kernersville and Thora- asvllle. He comes to the city with splendid recommendations, and a well-established business career. The new name of the Chevro let agency here will be Gaddy Motor Company and Mr. Gaddy will give kis personal attention to the business. The same sales force, with the addition of Joe D.

This gala occasion of the hol iday season Is being sponsored jointly by the North Wilkesboro WVinian’s Club and the North ■Wilkesboro Lions Club. two wide-awake civic organizations that are desiring to raise some funds for worthy objectives and at the same time be providing amusement and grvTng away valuable and attractive prizes.

Jones of the 17th district made public in an interview yesterday his unequi vocal and unalterable opposition to commutation of the death sen tences imposed on Bascom and Lester Green and R. E. Black, who face death in the electric chair on December 7 for the killing of Cashier T. C. Barnes in an attempteil robbery of the Taylorsville bank in July, and described the crime as one of the most horrible ever committed in North Carolina. After reading Bascom Green’s claims that Stefanoft forced him and the others into the bank raid Solicitor Jones reviewed the evidence in the case, which he said showed that all four men were armed and that they came to Stefanoff’s home near North Wilkesboro with five pistols and a shotgun, trading one luger gun for gasoline in North Wilkesboro and insisted that Assistant Cash ier S. E. Little’s testimony as to the men being armed and who did the shooting should be be lieved. He uointed out that . ' '’■yS Funds-Rroii Side'ttf Tiny Stickers Do Great Work in Fight On Tuberculosis MONEY IS USED HERE Woman’s Club of Two Wilkes- boros to Promote Sale of Seals Again One of the first evidences of the Christmas season will be the sale of Christmas seals here next week by the North Wilkesboro and Wilkesboro Woman’s Club. The little seals used on Christ mas mail are just tiny stickers but what has been accomplished by the sale of the seals would be astounding if all the results could be tabulated. The sale of the seals in Wilkes County is by the Woman’s Clubs under the direction of the State and Na tional Tuberculosis Associations. Just one cent each Is the price for seals and yet funds have been raised in previous years that have gone a long way in the fight against the white plague. The two organizations of the Wilkesboros will retain three-fourths of the money gain ed in the sale of seals and the Other fourth will go to the state association to fight tuberculosis all over the state. Mrs. R. T. McNeill Is sales chairman for the North Wllkes- boro Woman’s Club and Mrs. L. B. Dula holds the same position for the Wilkesboro organization. The seals will be sold through the schools, throufeh the mails and by the Boy S-outs between now and Yuletide. During the past tew years the Woman’s Clubs of the Wilkes boros have raised enough through the sale of seals to fur nish the county tuberculosis hos pital and purchase a radio for the enjoyment of the shut-in in mates. In addition to this they have purchased equipment for the North Wilkesboro high school gymnasium and have car ried out several objectives, all of which liave been directly or indirectly connected with the great drive civilization is direct ing against tuberculosis. This year the funds will be used in similar commendable activities and the sponsors of the sale of Christmas seals will ap preciate the support of the pub lic. Shipping Corn !

The Solicitor insists, on the testimony of Little, that Stefan- off was on one side of the bank enclosure, Lester Green was at a window on the opposite side and that Bascom Green was at the center window. Stefanoff and Lester Green both shot Barnes, one from one side and the other from the other and that both bullets went entirely through his body in opposite directions, in direct contrast to the state ment of the elder Green that his son was not armed, and that Bascom Green shot Little as his hands were uplifted in surrend er. In the interview today Solici tor Jones said, "Stefanoff, an uneducated alien who knew but little of our laws, customs and traditions, has been electrocuted. Black and the Greens are Amer ican citizens with reasonably good education and intelligencr and who knew bur laws am customs. The -attempt of thesi three men to place all the blam on Stefanoft is repulsing.’’ After stating his belief tha Black “furnished the brains fo (ContlBUBd OB imge four) After winning sweepstakes at (he North Carolina State Fair a group of Wilke.s farmers of the Piirlear community are seeking larger field.s to conquer and have sent their specimens of Wilkes County White Corn to the In ternational Grain and Hay Show- in Chicago. The International is the larg est exposition of farmers pro ducts in the world and is open to all nations. However, the Unit ed States is divided into regions according to climatic and soil conditions. The farmers have shipped to the exposition a number of ten ear exhibits to compete in the ten-ear single ear class, the ten- ear prolific class and the 4-H Club department. Quentin Nich ols. who won sweepstakes at the State Fair, made only a few sub stitutes in his ten-ear exhibit and will put North Carolina’s best against the rest of the world. During the past several years that the Wilkes corn has been on exhibit at the International show it has not failed to win prem iums and on three occasions has won Blue ribbons. The International show build ing was destroyed in the disas trous fire last year but has been replaced much larger than be fore. North Carolina will send a judging team from State College to compete In the judging con tests and W. H. Barst and Dr. I. B. Cotner will look after the ixhibits from the state at the exposition.

C. Foard, formerly of Statesville, has begun his work in the coun ty in cooperation with the coun ty health department and his services are now available to the public. At present Mr. Foard is mak ing a survey of the sewer sys tems and water supplies of the schools of the county and will make recommendation for any changes that he deems necessary to keep the best of sanitary con ditions and to safeguard the health of the children. He urges the construction of sanitary privies for private homes and will gladly assist any one in giving them plans approv ed by the state board of health. He calls attention to the fact that the FERA will furnish labor for the erection of a sanitary privy and the only cost to the owner is what expenditures may be necessary for .materials. Rev, E. V.

Services are held each fourth Sunday afternoon and eveningy^ Effective December G The North Carolina Emer.gency Re lief Administration will work through district Instead of coun ty offices and a district office for six counties will be located in North Wilkesboro, according to information given out from Mrs. Thomas O’Berry, state re lief administrator. Wilkes has been selecteH*^ ae the district office for Watauga, Ashe, Alleghanyr s4Vry and Yadkin counties and the office will be located in the Bank of North Wilkesboro building. By reducing the number of of fices and units from 104 to 33 in the state it is expected that $180,000 can be sliced from the cost of relief administration. The consolidation move will be the first important alteration of the relief administrative set up since its organization more than a year ago. Virtually every county in the state will be af fected by the change. Mrs. O’ Berry said. The consolidation plans pro vide that the 33 districts will be each under the supervision of a district administrator. Each county will continue to have a branch office, but clerical assist ance in these offices will be eliminated. District administrators have not 'been announced, and those not retained as administrators may be employed in other relief jobs, Mrs. O’Berry said. “Increased efficiency with re duced expense is onr aim,’’ Mrs. O’Berry explained. “Enough case workers will be added to staffs of each dis trict to provide one worker for each 100 families on relief. “More thoroiLgh investigation is expected to reduce drastical ly the number of persons on re lief rolls and the savings can be u.sed to provide adequately for those qualified for relief.’’ I'ndcr the new set-np. each of the 33 districts will be staffed with the following key person nel: district administrator, case work supervisor, disbursing offi cer, project supervisor, rural re habilitation supervisor and sta tistician. This staff will serve also as a planning board Only four counties wi’! be maintained as relief units with in themselves; Wake county with headquarters in Ralejgfa.
