The final game of the series at Washing ton Wednesday night was also awarded the locals after a tough bat tle. 34-33 In the starring role for the Mar tins was Don Brock, who although a good deal shorter than his oppo nent, Campbell, scored thirty points during the three games The Swedes offered great praise to Brock and all said that they tried to win every game, but found a much stronger team here than they anticipated. Fol lowing Brock in scoring were Jeff Grant and Fenner Wallace, who hit the basket for 22 points during the exhibition. Olson's Terrible Swedes were led by White, a forward, who made 31 points for the three tills and a large number of these points were made from difficult angle shots. But the real star for the Swede's was Jump aided as the man to watch. Satovich displayed his technique In a manner which labels turn the best passing and trick artist ever seen on the bas ketball court in this section. Jump mg Joe especially noted the close guarding of Bosko Anderson, who put a cramp in his antics The entire personnel bf the Ter rible Swedes was very compliment - ' cals and enjoyed their stay here very much.

Local police had very few calls and referred to the holiday as one of the quietest they had witnessed in a number of years. Three robber ies were reported early in the week, but none came to the attention of local police at Christmas. Over Robersonville", two plate glass win dows were sfnashed and small quan tities of goods were stolen. Pranks ters shot out several street lights and caused a damage there of about $125.

Par Just now the club officials are looking for an able first baseman and some more pitchers. Hopeful more lenient rules can be effected covering player classifica- i tions, President Lilley is holding his team intact. Of course, he is looking for players, but he hopes it will be possible to retain most of the otd lads fur actiuii this cuiniiig season The league directors are planning to hold a meeting within the next few days and give the recently adopted player classifications further consid eration, according to Mr. Lilley Tuo Fire ('.alls Received Here l)uring C.hristman The local fire company was call ed out twice during the Christmas period. On the .morning of Decem ber 22. the firemen were called to the humble home of Bell Williams in Leggett's Lane where fire, start ing from a spark, slightly damaged the roof. On Christmas morning, fire, start ing from an oil heater, smoked the apartment of J. D. Harrison, Jr., in the Godwin house on the corner of Main and Sycamore Streets The mantel and a small area on the floor were burned, but the firemen brought the fire under control with chemicals and without much re Attack Victim Leaves Long Trail Of Blood Returning to his home on Elm Street about 4:30 o'clock Tuesday morning apparently to attack his wife a second time, John Wilder, colored, met with flatiron opposition as he tore through the back lluur. Using a flat iron, his wife directed a heavy blow on his head and cau ed the blood to flow freely. Arriving on the scene about that tune, officers saw Wilder flee from the home. They gave up the chase after trailing him a distance by his own blood Wilder was said to have attacked his wife about one o'clock that morning and took her pocketbook and money. She is now seeking sep aration papers, the police stating that she is not very interested in prosecuting a criminal action against him. the two teams met in Washington Wednesday night in a battle that proved to be the most thrilling of the series The score at the first period was tied at 6-all, at the half, Williamston led by a margin of 10 to 14, and at the third period the Martins were ahead 23 to 22.

Olson and Camp bell led the Swedes' cause with nine points each, while Don Brock hit his stride to mark up 12 points for the Martins. Tenner Wallace follow ed with eight. And thus ends the series between the first real basketball team of na tional reputation to be brought to this section and the Williamston Mar tina, with the locals coming out on the big end. Next of the big-time calibre to play here will be the House of David team, which is ranked even better than the Swedes. And we say, let's see if they are better than the Martina. Funeral Services For C A. Harrison Held Here This Afternoon (Continued from page one) mercantile tmn m Palmy n he rounded out his business knowl edge and in 1916 he returned to Wil hams ton and forming a partnership jyith his brother, Mr. G. H Harri son, founded the Harrison Whole sale Company. *n*e business enjoy ed a rapid expansion and the fol lowing year, the large wholesale building was constructed on South Haughton Street. Two years later the partners en tered the oil business which has been developed into one of the largest of its types in this section of North Carolina. While he was recognized able business man. Mr. Harrison was better known in his other walks of life His associations were varied and touched at the very foundation of religious, civic and community organizations, not to mention all kinds of sports which he so dearly loved and which no man could en joy any more than he enjoyed them. When a young student at Camp bell College, he joined the Baptist chu^ph. and during all the years that followed he maintained an an xious interest in its growth and its work. He gave liberally of his time and his means in its support. His interest in advancing educa tion did not stop in the role of the patron; he capably served the local schools as a member of the commit tee for several terms, and no call to help the schools or any other worthy institution or cause was left unan swered bv him. He was a favorite in the local Ki wanis club membership. He was Mason and his enjoyment of life seemed to be multiplied at the Shrine meetings. He also was a member of the Woodmen of the World organi zation and was a member of the Modern Woodmen. On June 17. 1914, he was married to Miss Lossie Anderson, of Leg getts- the event marking the begin nihg or a E*ri6d' ihHrrem^nsrws crowded with happiness and con tentment. His home life, marked by a lasting devotion and companion ship, approximated the ideal A thoughtful husband and an under standing father, he held the admira tion and undivided love of his fam ily. ife jovial character radiated happiness to others, and he made friendships that could not be brok en. His softness of manner, his friendly voice and his willingness to abide by the rules of the game earn ed him a place' in the hearts of ev eryone. In 1930 Mr. Harrison entered poli tics for the first time. Winning a spintud L'unU'sl in the primary that year, he entered upon the duties of treasurer of Martin County the fol lowing December. In the four suc ceeding elections he was returned to office without opposition. Undc^ his office, Martin County finances have been held at a high level, and his ability has received favorable comment from high financiers. He was a director in the Branch Bank ing and Trust Company and was ac tive in the work tif the Martin Coun ty Building and Loan Association for nearly fifteen years as its popu lar and capable president. There were few things rated as worthwhile and uplifting that did not receive an able and ever willing support of Mr Harrison. He enjoyed life and he enjoyed seeing others enjoy life. Besides his wife he leaves three daughters, Miss Rebecca Harrison, a member of the High Point school faculty; Mrs. Claude Baxter Clark, Jr., of_Williamston, and Miss Blanche Harrison, ?a student at Converse College, Spartanburg. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. Delia Green, of Wil liamston, and four brothers, Messrs. J. E. Harrison and G. H. Harrison, of Williamston; D. B. Harrison, of Palmyra, and R. G. Harrison, of Hen derson. Funeral services are being con ducted at his late home on Academy Street this afternoon at 3 o'clock by his pastor, Rev. James H. Smith, as-" sisted by Rev. W. R. Burrell, of Asheville, a former pastor.

Chamber Of Commerce Meeting Here Wednetday (Continued from page one) group here is growing rapidly, and it is hoped and believed that local business and professional men will fall in line, attend the meeting and participate in the organization and support of the proposed chamber of commerce. There has been a mark ed interest in the proposed cham ber of commerce, and with a loyal support already pledged It Is quite apparent that the organization can and will prove of much value in the advancement of the town's and com munity's material i Quick Results ?

"Bowed of deep gratitude were written on nearly every face. Especially mark ed were the exprssions of gratitude as they beamed from the wrinkled faces of thirty-three aged persons. Possibly most of those old people will not be with us another Christ mas. but there is satisfaction in knowing that someone helped make this Christmas a happy one for them," a representative of the spon sors explained, adding that the peo ple of Williamston showed more real interest in the undertaking than in any of the other four years when a helping hand was extended to the needy of this community. "Just tell the contributors and others who assisted in any way in making the movement a success, that the money could not have been spent for a greater cause," the spokesman for the sponsors conclud-1 ed. ?In four caseSj the gifts were re- j ceived with indifference, the re cipients apparently accepting them as a matter of course. Thoses cases were noted and will be dropped from the list another ^year. In addition to the $161.30 cash contributions previously acknowl edged, the following wore added. II. D.

No information has yet been given him as to how many enumerators will be assigned to each county and those who do the work must suc cessfully pass a test. Enumerators do not receive any salary nor traveling expenses and are paid fees for their work. Numerous county people are in terested in taking the census, but as far as it could be learned here no appointments have been made. The appointments will likely be handled by the district supervisor either at his home in Pantego or in his office at Washington, and applicants are directed to get in touch with him ?i> Suffers Broken Ley In Recent Fall At Raleigh Mrs. Charles Davenport, of James ville, fell and broke her leg while crossing a street in Raleigh last Saturday.
