More than half of the benevolent fund, or $3,999,192.63, has gone to the 21 Ilaptlnt orphanages of the South, two of which have been established a result or mis movement and all or which have been greatly helped by this forward program. Nearly 4,000 orphan boys and girls are being housed, fed, clothed, educated and trained for Christian citizenship in these orphanages and tho Campaign has put between $800,000 and $900,000 into the maintenance of these institutions each year.

THE ROXBORO FOURIER A| FAMOUS ARGENTINE-RACE TO STUDEBAKER FOR-1TH1RD TIME t-t>? Special-Six wins Annual tSouth American Classic against big field of American and European racers. ' V Buenos Aires, March? Pushing ahead of a field of twenty-five American and European contestants, a j Studebaker Special-Six won, Tor the | third consecutive year, the spectacular Gran Projnio of Argentine, Sooth America's foremost racing event. Sr. Mariano de la Fnente drove the Studebaker to victory over a course- twice .the distance of former years, and along roads in so hazard- i ous condition that-only thirteen of 1 the twenty-five entries finishes the i complete distance. Distance was Doubled. Do la Fuente has driven in a number of previous Gran Premios, but this \v{ts his first year behind the ] wheel of a Studebaker. In the 1922 race he was bentep out for first place by a Special-Six and la'st year again I finished unsuccessful. So he conelud- ] ed that thig-year he wontdcast- his lot with Studebaker. < Third and fourth prizes went to I Gianinni and Fcrreyra respectively, i both of whom also drove Studebaker Special-Sixes, making a total of three places won by Studebaker in this year's race. Studebaker's winning time was 24 hours and 45 miiiutes over a treach- j erous course of 1,620 kilometers (about 950 miles). ThtTrace last year was 650 kilometers (465 miles). The rhcers started- from here and made their way to Rosario; thence to Cordoba, and returned by the same route ; to , Buenos Aires. ? The Gran Premio is held annually i under the auspices of. the Argentine | Automobile Club. The hard service to which cars are subjected in this grind is greate# than many months of ordinary driving. So gruelling was the race this year that nearly half the entries were com- ! pelled to drop out, due to mechanical | lifftculties brought about by the road ! :onditioris over which the race was j rqn. The famous Gran Premio is more ban a test for speed. South Anjtri:an motorists consider it a final eon, est for gauging motor car endurance. Wins For Third Time The fact that a Studebaker, for he third time, won this spee<bflight igainst somei of the most expensive European and American mal^gs^^fc ommented on by the judges. In 1922 the race was won Anonio Ovides in a Studebaker. Wiliam-T. Burke's Speciawsix was the " irst car over the-line last year. The itudebaker's victory here comes on j he heels of similar achievements in j South Africa, the Syrian Desert, Aus- \ raiia ana Jtvianaa. RIPPLED BOY BEGINS POULTRY CLUB WORK. Newton, N. C. March 31. "Several veeks ago Thomas Sipe, Conov^r, |, loute 3, wrote asking me how he night become a poultry club mem>er, and stated *that he would like to alk with me sometime in passing," fays j. Wt* Hendricks County Agent for Catawba County. "I was impressid with his letter and made a point ;o see the boy just as soon* as I could. When I went to his home, I found a i>oy 13 years old, and a cripple since birth. He had spent several months in the hospital and wasthen able to move about on crutches. He said he had been keeping up with club work hrr the county, and especially with the members in his community. He hod decided to try and carry on some poultry club work. . "After talking'with, him for sometime and explaining how*club work is conducted, I found that he was very much interested in chickens and knew n grefiVdeal about them. I was glad to enrortl Mm* as a c*ub member even though he was badly handicapped for the work. He decided to take Brown Leghorns, and bought a small pen of 20 birds. Just recently'I visited his farm, and found him getting along nicely with his project. He was keeping a splendid record and could show exactly the number of eggs secured from his hens and the number he has sold. He now has about 75. young chicks hatched off. He is in-! terested in his work and I am ex- j pecting him to he "an outstanding club member-Jpi a fiw years, even though he is compeiied to do all hia walking on crutches." 0- 1? - "fte?FeaWklintoa Mews-ia-offarinW $10 in cash prizes for the best essays , "by school children on the advantage!
