Heyward Residence, Sawed in
Two, Hauled by Truck
to New Locatifm
Southern ines has been treated
this week to a novel use of the au
tomobile. When HeinecUe & Com
pany was awarded the contract tor
the new Wooluough house on Wey
mouth Heights it acquired the old
HeyA'ard house, which it proposes
to salvage and rebuild on another
location. It .is a structure that the
Reineckes consider a.s having pos-
sibilities. So they cast about tor
a home for the orphan house and
found a place on Morganton Koad.
Then to avoid tearing it down
and rebuilding they sawed it into
two parts, secured some men skill
ed in juggling houses on the hoof,
had some skids placed under the
foundation of the first half of the
building, hooked on a big truck and
set off uown Mas.sachusetts ave
nue with the car dragging the big
house like a little boy'and his goat

“What is a Congressman for, any
This was a question overheard re
cently by Representative Walter
Lembeth of this Congressional dis
trict. It was made by a man tor
whom Mr. Lambeth had endeavored
but failed to procure a federal job.
On Wednesday, before the Kiwanis
Club of Aberdeen, the Congressman
made it the subject of an informal,
“off the record” talk. '
He amused the Kiwanis members
by citing some of the queer requests
made of a member of Congress, some
of the ideas that people have of
what a Congressman is for, some ot
the things a Congressman is called
when he fails to accomplish what a
constituent asks of him. In short, he
unbosomed himself of that side of
his "job” which few citizens appre
ciate, the necessary “glorified mes
senger boy" work which takes a large
part of the time of a representative
“Of course I don’t want you to
think I don’t like my work. I love
it and I want to keep my job. But I
thought it might interest you to
know that there is something besides
glory to being a Congressman, and
might amuse you to hear sonu- o+
the things that happen to ^ mem
It was a most interesting and
amusing talk, thoroughly enjoyed bj"
the largest (rowd attending a local
Kiwanis raeetmg in some time. Mr.
Lambeth, up for rt election this lali
for his third term at Washington, is
making a tpur of his extensive eighth
district. He visited Southern Pines,
Carthage and Hemp in this county in
addition to his luncheon talk at the
Aberdeen Community House. In an in
terview with The Pilot Mr. Lambeth
expressed great confidence in the fu
ture results of the New' Deal. Much
of it is sound, he said; much headed
for the discard after being tried and
found wanting. He believes President
Roosevelt is on the right track and
that he wifi be successful in bring

The Rev. J. E. Ayscvie, former
pastor, now head of the English de
partment at Campbell College, de
livered the morning sermon at 11:00
o’clock. At noon an old-fashioned pic
nic dinner was served on a long ta
ble in the grove.
In the afternoon a historic program
was presented, when all former pas
tors were recognized.
Since the church was organized it
has been served by 27 pastors and
supply pastors. The Rev. Noah Rich
ardson was first shepherd of the
flock, remaining at Bethlehem fronr
1834 until September, 1886. It was
in 1860, during his pastorate, that
the church was blessed with a great
revival, accounting for baptism of
89 new members. After the 32 years
service of Mr. Richardson came:

The Rev. Messrs. Moore and Wat

northwest corner of the cemetery
was replaced by the present building.
The intervening vacancies were
filled by various ministers. It is in
