Wednesday, October 10, 1934 TAKE NO CHANCES You can hardly pick up a paper but what you read ot some store, or home, having been robbed, and In this day of quick get-away with automobiles you rarely hear of any Of the guilty being captured. We want to warn our country friends not to carry their money home and keep it about the house, for there are too many stragglers, just waiting for an opportunity; and further, the man who comes in your home to rob you will not stop short of murder if it is necessary to accom plish his purpose. Why take any chances? Possibly you lost money in some of the bank closings, and do not have any too much love for banks as a general run, but remember, every dollar de posited in your bank in Roxboro is guaranteed up to $5,000 by the Un ited States government/and you can not lose no difference what hap pens to the bank. Should the bank happen to get in a tight place you can go theqe and get your money, if it is not in excess of $5,000, and get every penny you have in it, without cost or worry, for Uncle Sam has guaranteed it. And. may we say by way of parenthesis, that this is not an advertisement: for the Peoples Bank, as they know, ?nothing about what we are writing, in fact you all know that we do not oonsult'any one as .to, what we say in this' tolumfi: . ? Take our advice and put your money in the bank, do not carry it home and take chances of having it stolen. HOW VERY PLEASANT 1 How pleasant it Is to dwell to-! gether In love and harmony, and that thought is brought about "by | the splendid way the farmers of -ths good County and Roxboro are working together at this time. Dur ing all of our fifty years spent in this good town we have never known such a feeling of friendship as is manifested here dally at this time; the farmer is patronizing his home market, the buyers and warehouse men are exerting their utmost ef forts in trying to serve them, and and the merchants of Roxboro are meeting every demand placed upon them, seeing that- they carry Just the thing you want, and price it in keeping with what the, same goods can be purchased anywhere, in fact they are making catalog lywses^llve hard, and are getting many cktliars which in the past have- gone else where, ? ? That there have beeh prejudices In the past, most occasioned by mis I taken acts on the part of both town and county;'All will admit, but today all seem to realize that what helps one helps the other, and the result is there are going to be many dol lars circulating in this section which heretofore have helped enrich other sections. The co-operation which we have today is going to mean much for the County, as well a# the town, and a few years of, such work will tell in the-'improvementa on all sides; aside from the value In dol lars and cents. It will so knit us together that any outsider who might happen along and attempt to create any rupture will find he has come to the wrong place and will soon make "himself scarce In our midst. o-l 1 1* ?""* I We are proud of the civic clubs of Roxboro, for ttjiey have meant much to us. If we mistake not the first of the kin^iere was the Wo man's club, and no one can tell the great things this club has ac complished; then came the Rotary club, whiclvin turn was followed by the X.wants club. The last named has been here cnly a few months, but Is already beginning to make a j place for Itself, while the Rotary has been here more than ten years, and to this club we give much credit for the good fellowship existing today ! between the town and cfltrotry-. For a number of years, the classification of farmer in the Rotary was not -filled, but several months since the 'club gladly welcomed as a member Mr. Claude Half, and now another good countryman has come in. Mr. Dan L. Whitfield of Hurdle Mills. These two gentlemen will mean much to Rotary and we are con vinced their efforts will do much to solidfy that spirit of goodwill between the town and country. In electing our good friend, Rev. J. P. Herbert, president of the Kiwan j ians, the club not only honored Mr. Herbert but it more highly honored itself. He has been, and isf a power for righteousness and all good and 'worthy efforts In this community, [and but for one of the rules of the i Methodist conference?that fbur , year rule?we dare say Mr. Herbert would be one of our fixtures, cer tainly he would be if the vote was rleft to this office. . ? o ?? By all means let's grab it quick. .In another,column will be found an article from our Jalong correspond ent who wants Roxboro to'take iover a team from Jalong and call jit "Roxboro." Good suggestion, all that is asked is that we furnish the jboys with uniforms and some small expens?a, which will naturally ac crue, "and this we can well afford, for a good ball team will mean, much for the fans, and give us somewhere to spend some pleasant afternoons. Somebody start the ball to rolling, we will do our part. CENTRAL GRADED SCHOOL NEWS The splendid opening of Roxboro Central graded school seems to have been a real lnsiplration. The school was organized with unusual ease and is operating in a progressive way. The entire system, regardless of crowded conditions, is working in a cooperative style. The P. T. A. had its first meet ing Sept. 18. The devotional num ber of this meeting was given by Miss Hattie Burch in a most im pressive manner. The second num ber "Why Have a P. T. A.?" given by Mrs. W. P. West, was so effec tively given, that it was a second feast of the ^meeting. Such pro grams will certainly increase the interest of the large attendance. Miss Maude Montague's third grade won the P. T. A. banner for having the greatest number of par ents present. Miss Inda Collins has been in charge of the chapel exercises on Thursday mornings and has sug gested such worthwhile thoughts as Psalm 19?Keep mouth and heart clean and pure. Psalm 1-vTteep mind on good things; pick outcome good in a person and copy thereafter. On Monday morningf Oat. lj Mr. J. P. Herbert conducted chapel de i vetional exercises^ He talked of the friendship of Jesus and Zacchaeus. and of His strong friendship to us. His warning to "{He school children was, not to be two-faced, but to cultivate the habit of making others happier. Oct. 8 Mr. J. C. McGregor brought the stOTy of Naaman. Even though Naaman was efficient, obedient and a man of valor and otherwise ac complished. he was a leper and j suffered the loss of his usefulness. "The children were urged not to let petty traits cause them to lose their usefulness. ThP listed traits wt-re laziness, dishonesty and tell ing falsehood. Our visiting minis ters always bring helpful and ap ' pTeciatlve messages. It will be greatly appreciated if all parents will prepare a lunch for their-children on rainy days. This will avoid the rush home, probable , tardies and allow them to stay at school, keep dry. thereby preventing much sickness and they will have plenty of time to eat. Parents will please notice that the tardy bell rings at 8:40, which ; is five minutes earlier than in pre vious years. We have noted mapy tardies. Perhaps this Is the reason, Everyone will appreciate ah cooper ation given In this matter that every one arrives oh time. . The first months of school brought an evening of great pleasure to teachers when they were so gra ciously entertained 'at dinner by the Rotarlans. This annual occasion Is always looked forward to. o MEETING AND ALLQTMT CARDS By H. K. Sanders At present the interest of farm ers centers around their tobacco crop, the good price that it is bring-. ing, and their marketing and allot ment cards. We have the follow ing suggestions to make in connec tion with the cards: 1. Check every entry on your card at. warehouse. It is much easier fof the Field Agents to cor rect an error immediately, if In the rush they should make a mistake on your card. They will be glad to correct apy error that you find. 2. .Check your warehouse bills, especially If you have turned a tag. 3. Keep your record books. Enter each and every sale made by any !one on your farm. Be sure to make a record of the nuriiber of pounds sold, amount received for each sale, date of sgle and the name of the warehouse. 4. Check addition of pounds on warehouse sales slip before present ing card for your check. 5. After you receive your check, see that correct entries have been made on your allotment card. 6. Copy the information on each1 allotment card into a record book as your sales are made. This Infor mation will be very valuable in case the allotment card is lost and you have to get a duplicate.

Currin JESUS IN AGONY When he had taken the eleven disciples with him into Gethsamene Jesus said to them, "My soul is ex- j ceeding sorrowful, even unto death." ? And there he sweat as it were great drops of blood, his soul being in great agony. It was difficult for him to face bis suffering. We miss the point if we pass it up by saying he was divine and therefore found to easy to sub mit; it was difficult. He cried unto the Father that if it were possible to let that cup?that suffering and agony?pass from him. ! While on the cross he -cried out, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" All of this agony of soul in' addition to his physical suffering! Why was it necessary for the blessed Son of God who knew no sin thus to suffer? For the answer to this question we have only to turn to Isaiah 53:6. "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have 'turned everyone to his own way; land the Lord hath laid on him the [iniquity of all." For an idea of the meaning of ! this statement let us turq to his words concerning Dfves and Laza t ruS. Dives died and was buried and in hell lifted up his eyes being in ^hrment. Then he begged for that poor man who before had lain at his gate fuH of sores desiring to bie fed with the crumbs that fell from the table to be allowed to come and merely dip his finger in water to cool his parching tongue. But he was told that could not be for there was a great gulf separating them that could not be crossed. In other words he was out of reach of mercy. In like manner at the crucifixion the Father is withdrawing his mer cy from Jesus. He sent angels to minister to him when he was tempt ed in the wilderness but he is sending no nagels now. He sent Moses and Elijah to talk with him on the Mountain of Transfiguration but Moses and Elijah are not sint now. The Father is withdrawing his mercy fr^m the Savior that he may not have: to withdraw it from us in eternity. Such love on the part of" Jesus Christ should strike a cord of ap preciation in evey human heart, and that appreciation should express It self in humble trust and obedience. Matt. 26:17. Ruth Reads Himself Out Of Loop As Ball Player Bamhtna Announces He b Willing To Manage Some Major League OutfU Bot Will Not Sit On Bench Aa Pinch-Hitter t Detroit, Oct. 8.?Dynamic, colorful Babe Ruth, the' biggest drawing 'card baseball has known, read him self out of the game as a player today, but said he would be delight ed to sign yrith some major league club as manager. "I want to remain in baseball," Ruth, here-for the world series, said ? teday, "but I will not sign a players' contract next year with any club. "I have no Intention of sitting on the bench or being around merely : for pinch-hitting purposes. That doesn't appeal to me at all." _ No Job in Mind. Then, to make it clear that he wasn't talking about any particular club, he added: "I havertt had an offer to, take hold of any club, nor have T any thing definite in mind as to where I might land if I left the Yankees, but I have made up my mind as to what I want to do, if there is any future for me in the big leagues." He also made it clear there isn't any serious ,prospect that he might supplant Joe McCarthy as manager Of the Yankees next season. "To avoid any misunderstand ings," he said in a formal statement, "here's what happened. Before leav ing -New York I had a meeting with Colonel Ruppert a"nd asked: 'Col onel, are you satisfied with Mc Carthy for next year?' "The colonel replied that he was and I said, "That suits me?that's all T wanted to know." \"j did not say that it was a case | of McCarthy or me. "This much is certain?I want to remain in baseball but X will not sign ! a player's contract next year with any club. # i "In view of Colonel Ruppert's de i cision. I wil make my plans ac cordingly. The fact that McCarthy's three year contract as manager of the r Mighty Babe Quits ' Yankees still has a year to run Is one very effective barrier to Ruth's jwell known ambition to pilot the club wfth^ which he gained fame? and a fortune. A .year ago, the Bambina turned down the offer of ' Colonel Ruppert, owner of the ! Yanks, to manage the Newark Bears, ja Yankee farm. | Ruth played in 125 games this sea I son, but retired from many of those games before they were over. His ' legs, small compared to his bulk, have caused him trouble for several I seasons. He smacked out 22 home runs during the season and ended with ; an unofficial batting average of .288. | Mr. and Mrs. Echard of Conover, | Catawba County, report 180 eggs per ! bird from a flock of 35 Reds during the first ten months of this poultry year.
