others in this area, is part of an
overall plan of the bus company for

the United States, and just recently
added member companies that oper

Have You Bought
Your T. B. Seals?
Dr. N. Thos. Ennett, General Tu
berculosis Bond and Christmas Seal
Sale Chairman for Pitt County, states
that while the returns from the Bond
and Seal Sale so far have been vai
gratifying, some of our good citi
zens have overlooked, probably due
to the Christmas rush, sending in:
their contributions. He states that
this is not only true in Greenville
but is true in other sections of the
county as well.
He expressed the dpinion that this
year's goal, the 110,000 Mobile X-ray
unit, fur free x-ray to all dtisens in
the county in an effort to wipe out
tuberculosis, will not be reached un
less all citizens contribute generous

Dr. Ennett said he felt that buying
Christmas Seals truly exemplifies the
Christmas spirit in its finest form.
