Lavvsonvalle, April 2S.—With
the end of school less than five
weeks off, plans have been per
fected for a variety of good com
mencement programs. The first
of this kind is to be presented
Friday night of this week, when
the primary and grammar grades
present the beautiful operetta,
"The Cobbler of Fairyland," un
der the direction of Miss More
field, Mrs. Lassiter, Mrs. Smith,
Miss Smith, Mrs. Tucker and

the marking of being the best
of its kind ever produced in the

ance is expected.
Other programs to be given

The senior class, under the
supervision of the principal, has
undertaken two projects for beau
tifying the school ground, the
building of cement walks and the
planting of' peas in the front of
the building. Tne peas will bo
followed ia the fall with regular
lawn gra&3. These projects have
been planned for some time but
work on both has been delayed
by weather conditions and, too
because farmers have been too
busy to spare teams for preparing
the front grounds for sowing
peas. Money for the projects
was partly derived from the high
ly successful senior class play
about a month ago. The remain
der of the funds will be taken
from the funds will be taken
year by the various programs
put on by the school as a whole.
Improvements have also been
made on the athletic field
through the courtesy of the high
way department of the county.
Two road machines were on the
local grounds about two weeks
ago and through grading have
provided one of the best base ball
diamonds in the county. At the
same time a fine tennis court j.nd
croquet ground was graded, dnd
new wire has been recently put
up around the tennis court and at
the home plate on the ball field.
The local high boys defeated
, the Sandy Ridge high team on
local diamond last Wednesday by
the score 4 and 3. This was one
of ths best games seen in these
parts ia quite a while.

LOK STOKES— OTIIKK
NLWS UK ; !.;IT IN HV MR.
If Stokes Cuunty decides to
vote or. liquor stores it need not
depend on Wilsoii's Store, Mead
ows township, for help, as it
will vote dry.
At least this is the opinion of
James W. Young, who was here
"i " from Meadows township.
Mr. -ou:ig says that not only
..... >n's Store go against
liquor, but that ■ Stokes county
! will east its vote for good morals,
law a''*d sobriety, if the test
II: 1 says this is his careful esti
' mate. He feels positive that
Meadows, Yadkin, Quaker Gap
and other townships will refuse 10
adopt a program that means free
' rein for boo?,e, legalized whiskey,
j increased drunk diivjng, etc.,
that which marks a let-down in
the moral consciousness of the
! people. «
j Another prediction by Mr.
Voung is that Stoke- county will
not even vote on the proposition
of wet or dry. He does not be
lieve that enough citizens can bj
induced to si'-rn a petition address
ed to a super-dry boaid of com
r.iiss/loucrs, asking the coun
ty may be permitted to ballot on
a question so deeply antagonistic
to good government,
j Mr. Youii:;, wh 0 is years old,
has not (a 1 en a (ifink in 125 or 30
years. 11. says he drinks dry
and votes dry.
The wheat crop in the county
is "large and fine." So says this
big farmer of Meadows township,
i He says the fly or bug is cau
sing no concern, and that from
I pnesent indications there will bo
a magnificfent crop of wheat,
j Mr. Young is heartily with the
I President on his Supreme court
program, and believes that Sena
tor Bailey has made a big mis
take in taking sides against tha
interests of the farmer.
He is also a great admirer of
Frank Hancock, Congressman
from this district. Mr. Young
says Hancock has demonstrated
that he is right with the people,
and that the people will endorse
the policy of Hancock who is 100
per cent, behind Roosevelt.
Wheat Crop Of
The farmers of Stokes will be
well fixed on the bread line for
another year according to pres
ent indications. There is a large
crop of wheat sown, and in every
section of the county it is report
ed to be excellent.
