FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1927 luT ¥111111170 numiciK RIPTION $2.00 GET UNIVERSAL WATER SYSTEM Mid-Pines, Knollv^ood and Pine Needles Join South ern Pines. AN AFTERNOON OF RACES AND SPORTS AT PINEHURST When Mid Pines was established an arrangement was made to secure water from the Southern Pines old system. That served until connec tion was made on limited scale with the new plant on Mill Creek. Part of Knollwood was also served in this same manner, but the connections were not sufficient to be always sat isfactory. When Pine Needles was projected the matter there was simp ler, as the big mains of the Southern Pines system pass directly by the new house. Then came the new Knollwood Heights development, and there a proposition was offered to cut Knollwood into the Southern Pines system on a six-inch main. This set tled the question there. Then it was realized that sooner or later the whole section, including Mid Pines, Knoll- wpod Village, Pine Needles, and pos sibly still more tefrritory must ulti mately come into the Southern Pines area of water supply, and at a meet ing of the Commissioners of South ern Pines a plan was proposed to ex tend the new six-inch main from its conneiction at Pine Needles to the old mains of Southern Pines, and make provision for everything be tween Pine Needles and the South ern Pines boundaries. To this scheme Pine Niiedles, Mid Pines and Knoll wood all undertook to contribute, and each of these influences will bear a share in laying the new mains from the present Knollwood connection to the old six-inch mains of Southern Pines at the old water plant. TWs gives then two direct water lines from the pumping plant, and it will be possible to cut out either Mne and send water up through the other, or to rfiverse the current through the six-inch line for flushing purposes or anything else that may Ve required. This will put Mid Pines, Knollwood and the separate parts of tile community on a separate line if they need to have direct pressure and will not cut out one section of the territory supplied if the other section should find its line out of commis sion. In a pinch the six-inch line would carry water enough to keep Southern Pines from going dry should the big line nJed temporary atten tion, as was the case last summer. The power to drive a full current through both lines will have more or less effect in further clearing up the red color that bothered the consum ers after the new plant was cut in. Incidentally in a paper read before On Thursday, November 24, at the Pinehurst Race Track, the annual Thanksgiving races, which are also the first races of the season, will take place and this means an afternoon’s program of wholesome sports in which, not only the race horses but the riding horses will take an active part. One of thfe most interesting features of all race meets are the equestrian stunts and specialties in which all riders are invited to take part. Liberal prizes are offered for the winners of these events. BARBER’S nNE NEW CLUB HOUSE Stone Walls Have Risen in the New Building at the Golf Course. The stone walls of the new club house which James Barber is build ing on his golf course near the Southern Pines water reservoir are reaching the top and it will be only a short time until the handsome new structure will be an outstanding ad- Never before has the track been ! tuition to the development of that part so fortunate in the quality of the race horses stabled there and it is a fore gone conclusion that the winter races will be “bigger, better and more in teresting than ever.” NEAR EAST RELIEF WELL UNDER WAY Miss Eastwood, the Chairman, Will Soon Be Ready for Donations. of the Sandhills. An excellent road now runs out from the Midland road, and when it is finally made part of the old Seals road, which has long been a main road from Pinehurst to the Carthage road beyond Mill creek the region there on the head of Mill creek will be another attractive spot to drive over. The golf course cov ers a series of hills, giving an out look that is one of the features of the Moore county ridges. Mr. Bar ber knew what he was doing when he secured possession of hundreds of acres in the neighborhood, and the improvement which he has commenced points to a highly valuable addition to the Pinehurst and Southern Pines community. The intention at first was to build a log club house, but as the project moved along it was decided to use stone for the material, and the chiange is a wise one. Thf brown sandstone from the Drowning creek section is used, and it harmonizes with the sur roundings perfectly. Mr. Fuller has made a good job of the construction, brining out thfe afchitect's plans in pleasing manner, and the location of the building is on a bit of slope that gives it character. When the work is done and the 18 holes are ready for play the club will be one of the most interesting retreats of the Sand- liills. It is supplied with a water system from a reservoir on one of the heads of Mill creek, but should ELEMENTARY TEACHERS TO MEET AT FARM LIFE SCHOOL The following is the program of elementary teachers of Moore coun ty to be held at Farm Life School Saturday, Nov. 19, at 10 a. m.: Devotional—Supt.

There were 3,922 bales of cotton finned in Moore County from the crop of 1927 prior to Noy«mbcr 1, 1927, as compmd with 5,469 bales ta Np-WrtM h . The campaign for raising funds in Moore County for the Near East Col lege movement is definitely under way, according to Miss Loula East wood, chairman of the work in this county. Miss Eastwood says: The movement being launched in Moore County, in co-operation with other counties of the State, to raise funds with which to endow the six institutions of learning in the Near East is singularly worthy from every standpoint. This investment by the people is one of international good will. It is unique in that it provides not alone education, where education is most sorely needed, but thac it carries into the near orient under the flag of our republic the gospels of liberty, of freedom, and of truth. ‘‘The six colleges composing the group in question are: Robert College, Constantinople, American Univei*sity of Beirut, Constantinople Woman’s College, Internationa] College of Smyrna, Sofia American Schools and Athens (College, in Greece.

Some of towns and battlefields, scenes of the “big push” in the days of the war, were among the topics of discussion.

An announcement at the Kiwanis Club Wednesday at Carthage from the committee having the Midland ro^ in hand said that in a few days Frank Page and his engineers would be down to make the prelim inary survey and to hear the views of the people of tile neighborhood as to the t3^pe of road to be built. This indicatejB that preparation will be carried on during the winter for building the road, and thiat as soon as the traffic; lightens in the spring the actual construction will be start ed. A surprise awaited the club when Sam Riehazdson’s conunitlea havin# in hand the care of Christmas for children in the orphanages or else where who do not see as much Christ mas as they might, reported that the orphanages of the State are pretty well cared for already, and the com mittee has taken up the matter with Miss Eifort, the county welfare agent, and she will supply a list of names of children who will be looked after. June (jtinter, of Sanford, the next lieutenant-governor of the Kiwanis district, was pre^ent and he talked in an appreciated way of the little things of life, and before he finished he let his hearers realize that the lit tle things are among the biggest.

Mrs. Catherine E. Blue, of Eureka community, passed away quietly on the morning of November 3, after a lingering illness. Mrs. Blue had spent her entire life in the Eureka community—having been bom not far from the spot of her death on No vember 20, 1841. She was before her marriage Miss Catherine Ray. In 1859 she was married to Malcolmn Blue. From this union there came a large family of children to grow up into respected and well-beloved cit izens of their home community. It is quite remarkable that the 10 chil dren have lived and prospered in an area of a few miles. Theise children are: John C. Blue, Martin Blue, Mrs. H. M. McCaskill, Malcolmn R. Blue, William M. Blue, deceased, D. David Blue, D. Archie Blue, Kitty E. Blue, Mrs. F. M. Palmer, and Alonzo Blue. Besses the nine children now liv ing, Mrs. Blue leaves behind her 25 grand children and 19 great grand children. Those who have known Mrs. Blue longest bear testimony to her Chris tian character, gentleness of spirit, and abiding faith. She became a member of old Union Church in her early youth, several years before the war Between the States, and ranyilii- ed a member of this church until the new Presbyterian church was organ ized at Eureka. There are several remarkable things about the Ufa of this saintly old character. First, few permitted the privilege of living for a period of 86 years, and ot wit^ nesaing the many changes which such a period of time bring forth. There are fefw who have been permitted to live through the two greatest wars of our nation, and to take an active interest in both. Secondly, it is sel dom that the beautiful fruits of such a life are lavished on a single small commtinity. And thirdly, there are few lives which leave a more noble heritage than the fine Chiistian chil dren and grand children with which Mrs. Blue has blessed her community and county. While she will be missed, there should be no regret at her passing; for surely such a life merits just such a calm and peaceful transition to the Heavenly shore.
