marks the election el new officers and
the appointment .of new nomntittsea.
Such procedure enable* the member

of its ( iganiration. Ths past month
has bean responsible for the appoint

mambersliip drive the latter part of
this month, Jua* 1 will ate the ap
po in twit ef new personnel to a num
ber of eld committees and the crea
tion of new cou ,-itta**, for carrying
on the work of the Scotland County
Chamber of Crmmrrcc. It will be
upon these men that this organisation
will be largely dopeideat daring the
year 1*24-20 for the formulation of
plan* and pel Ida* and their raceri*
ful consummation. Chambers ef com
merce are often referred to as dvie
dynamos, for it la upon these organi
sation* that the dtisdnry of a eon
inanity tarn their eyes, when energy
and power is to be generated for
maintaining and improving their com
munity's podtiosw industrially;, com
mercially, dviely, and socially. Mod
em dvfumtion is Interwoven with
coniplexltias, and it is difleolt, nay,
Impoadble for man to Uve and atrtve
by self alone; ha nirrmadly la de
pendent men other*. Tim work of
• the daawr of eomiaerde is con
ducive to drawing man away from
the Isolation ef hi* individual and
salMi interests and meoaragea th*

ception of duties toward mulrinrl

IMs very thing to which the chamber
of eomtneiee aspires, and which it eal
rulatee to aeeoinplish. The aSbct of
this work la to socialise, to harmonise,
and to broaden the aspects sad en

Th* gran engaged In rhamher of •com
merce work becomes Imbued with the
idea at worfciag tor his cqmmanlty's
welfare and faUowman. Engage
ment, in the performance of such
work, softens the asperities of ho si
nes* com petit! an and often suiiosdi
in reconciling apparently conflicting
interact* of a brndnaea nature. Tha
bast method of arriving at an under
standing, is for-men to moat and dis
cus* tbair problems, and the wosk of
this organisation provide* ample op
portunity for men to become ac
quainted with, one another wtrfia ac
tively engaged fat performing work of

If ovary member of the Scotland
County Chamber of Commerce .made
it a point to gat in closer contact with
Ms organisation, ' he and it would
profit therefrom. He would acquire
a MW outlook obi vision and this or
ganisation would be richer through
tha investment of hla effort pad
thought. Ho end M* organisation will
bo healthier and stronger through a
devotion of such time and energy, for
after ail, a man in th* grand stand
derives nothing Hke th* benefft from
a ball gstne as the player actively en
gaged; neither does ha have as much
fun. No bettor move could be'con
ceived than building up this organisa
tion and advancing Scotland county.

■Your animal friends ore attacked by
germs in the same ways. Give them
the same protection—sanitary sur

Scotland oounty and the towns there
in to the danger of letting conditions
become so bad, that before yea know
it, the damage will be done. Clean

who are la the habit of throwing

power to prevent disease not only to
yourself but to your neighbor.
