ter; Sam D. Bundy
Guest Speaker At De
A setting of gaily appointed ban
quet tables, the presence of the Ro
tary Anns, the graded school faculty
and other special guests, a highly
successful program and a sumptuous
turkey dinner all conspired in making
the Rotartans' annual Ladies' Night,
on Wednesday, a gala occasion.
Prior to the banquet, tomato cock
tail and hors d'ouvres were served
from an attractively appointed table
in the old Rotary rooms by Mrs. T.
Eli Joyner, Jr.," and Mrs. Lynn Eason.
Seasonal decorations of autumn
leaves, ears of corn* and stalks, witch
es, pumpkins and black cats were
used in transforming the school lunch
room into a Hallowe'en scene. The
tables were spread with orange crepe
covers and centered with jack olan
terns. The place cards bore Hal
lowe'en motifs. Covers were laid for
a hundred and sixteen.
The invocation was offered by the
Rev. E. S. Coates. "
Dr. John M. Mewborn, president,
acted as toastmaster and welcomed
the guests in s witty speech, to which
Mrs. R. LeRoy Rollins responded in
her usual apt way.
The speaker of the occasion, Sam
D. Bundy, immediate past president
of the Carolines Kiwanis district, sec
retary of the local Chamber of Com
merce and supervisor of the Farm
ville tobacco market, whose wit and
oratory have made him a popular
after dinner speaker, was presented
by Walter B. Jones.
Bundy kept the assemblage "in
stitches" throughout his humorous
discourse on "Human Relationships"
in which he told anecdotes involving
himself and his Rotarian friends as
well ps members of the faculty in
illustration of the five points of his
subject, namely: man and wife; pa
rent and child; teacher and pupil;
preacher and church' member; em
ployer and employee. ?
The speaker closed on a serious
note relating to the service and build
ing program to which members of the
Rotary club and other civic organiza
tions and school teachers have dedi
cated themselves and pledged their
interests and efforts.
Walter B. Jones and Eli Joyner.
Jr., conducted a drawing contest in
which a number of valuable prizes
were swarded the ladies. The at
tendance prize for Rotarians was
won by C. L. Langley.
One of the most enjoyable enter
tainment features of the evening was
the musical program, presented by 1
Miss Rosemary Holmes, soloist, who J
sang Ah! Sweet Mystery of life,
Smilin' Through, One Alone and ]
Without A Song, with Mrs. Berkley j
Rut'edge as accompanist.

Raleigh, Oct 30.?Revenue from
gasoline taxes may climb to a record
high of *36,000,000 by the and of
IMC, Statistical Engineer James
Burch at the State Highway Com
mission predicted yesterday in a re
port which estimated more than 600,
000,000 gallons of gasoUlM would be
sold during the year in North Caro
Burch attributed the increases to
the fact that spore vehicles wan
registered now than in any previous
year, that old outs born more gaso- 1
line per mile than new automobiles,
and to the fact that people are travel
ing mora than before the war.
North Carolina extracts a 6-cemt
tax an every gallon at gasoline sold
for ass in vehicles which operate over
its highway system. The proceeds g? >1
to the State Highway fund for rtefC
pair and construction of public mads.
During 1M1, peak pre-war year,
6,280,000 was derived from taxes
