NEW ORGANIZATION FOR VASS
UP-TO- DATE BUILDING
From time to time the Pilot has
been agitating the formation of a
building and loan associtation for
Vass, and surrounding country. For
a while the matter hung fire, but we
kept at it, until a last it is on good
footing and enough names of respon
sible persons, have been secured to
make a building and loan association
an assured success. Within a week
or two a meeting wil be called for
the purpose of forming an organiza
tion and electing officers. Any in
formation desired on the subject by
those wishing to join will be gladly
given by calling at the Pilot office.
Keep it in mind.
Plans are now being drawn by an
out-of-town architect for an up-to-
date building to be used when com
pleted as a drug store and barber
shop. As soon as the blue print is
finished bids will be asked for the
construction of the building, which
will be something entirely new from
any other business place now in our
town. Let the good work continue.

Raeford 3, Vass 2
Vass meandered over to Raeford
last Friday to eat up the Raeford
team at the League Park, but sorry
to say they were made to bite the
dust. Up to the ninth inning Vass
had a mortgage on the game, but Wil
son dropped the pill in left orchard,
which tied the score. In the eleventh
circuit a fly was dropped and the Vass
crowd went up in a balloon. Griffin
was on the hilltop for Vass and did
good cannonading. At times the Rae
ford boys had a hard time to get the
spirit-level on his twisters. Behind
the stick Thomas was like a stone
wall. Batteries: Griffin and Thom
as; Brown and Culbreth. -
