?; speech was very good and he said
he could move his right arm and

: week to Ffcyctteville for rehabilita
s- tk?. The docton said he was a
\ prime candidate, which 1 think
means he could recover 100 per
S cent. Let's hope this is true. Gatlin
*? said that the doctor told him that
he had just "missed the bullet."
He said almost in tears, that his
room was filled with flowers and
that he had been the top mail getter
. for two days straight. Yes, Gatlin
you do have friends.
He was especially appreciative
of a letter from Mrs. Floyd
i Monroe. It was two pages long and
ended with the following; "I will
give out, but I never give up." As
most of you know Mrs. Monroe is
from the Rockfish section of the
county and is now 88 yean young.

Oatlin as usual had some news
for this column, but it doesn't deal
with the weather. He said five days
every week his newspaper is
brought to the room by John Dune
McLean of Aberdeen. Mr.
McLean is now retired and is a
volunteer worker at the hospital.
He is 89 years of age.
Mr. John Dune is a native of
Hoke Colunty and was the son of
Mr. and Mrs. Make McLean who
lived off the Laurinburg Hwy
about two miles south of Raeford.
He is a brother of the late H.R.
(Hootch), Walt and Mrs. F.B. Sex
ton (Mable). There could be others
in the family, but I can't recall
them at this time.
I think this is amazing, but when
you retire, you must have
something to keep you busy or you
will fade away. Thank goodness
for golf and the publisher and
editor still letting me write this col

It seems that the correct answer
to the closing of the Antioch
School has come forth. Mrs. Gard
ner Bos tic, who lives between An
tioch and Dundarrach, said that
the high school closed in 1928. 1
believe this is right.
According to Mrs. Willie
Hodgin, the elementary school
closed in the spring of 1945. She
states that the kids came to
Raeford after the closing of the
