DE OLE' NORTH STATE"
By W. Biddle Gilman
I 've travelled in sunshine, snow and rain,
By horseback, by buggy, by motor and by
And of all the points I visited, none ap
peared to be,
Like "De Ole' North State,' ' that's good
enough for me.
They may talk about their wondrous
Of avenues and boulevards or anything
Of hikes across the continent, . of liner
trips at sea,
I M sooner be in ' ' De Ole ' North State, ' '
that's good enough for me.
I cannot do it justice, in my weak
attempt at praise,
But here I hope to live my life, and here
to end my days,
So when I reach that future goal, I don't
know which t 'will be,
I can sing my song of "De Ole' North
State ' ' that was good enough for
WORKMEN ARRIVE FOR
WORK AT KNOLLWOOD
(From the Bankers' Journal)
The prizes for the Bankers' golf tour
nament at Pinehurst, May 1-7, have been
selected and are being engraved. Leon
ard Tufts makes himself a veritable host
to the visiting bankers and seems to en
joy it. Not satisfied with providing more
than ample prizes for the tournament
play he put up novel side prizes such as
a box of balls for any banker who makes
a hole in one, or, who holes the most
balls in one putt on the green. The
putts to count must be made in the
course of regular play and not in prac
tice. Donald Ross is making plans for the
tournament, co-operating with the golf
committee, and will perhaps be able to
give it his personal supervision. Colonel
Bowerman is planning .the week's pro
gram of council and committee meetings
so as to get in all the work possible and
yet leave a big margin for play and out
The weather at Pinehurst is reported
as the "most remarkable" in recent
There will be not less than four presi
dents of state bankers associations on
the Spring-tonic, as many state secreta
ries, several ex-members of council and,
last to come in, Oliver C. Fuller, always
one of the main spokes in the trust com
pany section wheel. He is going to be
in on some of the golf contests, being a
past master with everything from the
wood to the short kick into the hole.
Pierson and Watts should be in on this.
During the week another car had to be
provided to care for the extras and for
"friend wife," who is going in abund
ance. Much over half the registry will
le carried to Pinehurst on the Spring
tonic. A car will be waiting at Chattanooga
to take those who get on board there and
at Atlanta. The Springtonie will be a
nine-car train when it pulls out from
Chicago over the Monon at noon on April
29. St. Louis cars will be hooked on at
The new club house at Knollwood
starts in a few days. C. F. Ballard, of
Hamlet,' who will be superintendent of
construction, arrived Monday to make
arrangements for beginning work, and
will at once begin the organization of his
forces. He will bring in a few days
four foremen, and as the work progresses,
he counts on from sixty to seventy-five
carpenters and bricklayers. The immed
iate problem that he is working on is to
find a place to put his men..
Material is on the way, and as fast
as it comes it will be moved over from
the station to the building site by the
help of three or four trucks. Mr. Ballard
is figuring with S. B. Richardson for sev
eral houses in which men with families
can be cared for during the summer.
It will take a feAv days to get organ
ized and put material on the ground to
, get under way, but as soon as the freight
begins to arrive the truck crew will be
started and gradually the carpenters
and masons will be taking hold, and by
the end of the month Mr. Ballard hopes
to see a right fair army in action on the
HAROLD WEBER LATEST TO
Announce for British Event
The latest addition to the list of ama
teurs going abroad to compete in the
British title event is Harold Weber of
Toledo, who has spent considerable time
at Pinehurst this winter and was a keen
contender in last week 's North and South
championship. Weber has taken part in
two of the British championship tourna
ments and Avon his way through to the
fourth match round in 1914.
George Rotan, the Texas star, is also
going abroad. Rotan has won the Hous
ton invitation event four times in succes
sion against fields as large as 200 play
ers. F C. Newton, the Massachusetts team
captain, who is now playing at Pinehurst,
denies reports that he will join the expedition.
JUDGE W. A. WAY BUYS AT
Judge W. A. Way, Vice-president of
the Commonwealth Trust Co. of Pitts
burg, Pa., who, with Mrs. Way, have oc
cupied apartments in the Clover Leaf at
Pinehurst this season, is the latest to
purchase a building site on the Knoll
wood property. Judge Way picked out
a handsome lot on the boulevard near
that of Mr. James Barber and very near
the site of the club house. Mrs. F. Tal
ford Keating' bought another lot there
during the past week, making two that
she now owns at Knollwood.
For 10,000 years, more or less, people
have devoted themselves to the business
of "warning young girls." And the
girls have remained sweet in spite of it.
