j Of Christmas
VjHc Urged to Return
Envelopes By Christ
Mrs; C. A. DavenDort. chai rman of
the Christmas Seal campaign for
Perquimans County reported Monday
that the sale of the seals here is lag-
" STW behind quotas made last year.
Total sales reported up to Monday
' amounted to $235, while the county's
cruota for the camDairn la Sfinn It
Is hoped by the committee that the
' jpumio response during the final days
' of the drive will be sufficient to put
the campaign across.
".Th drive will come to a close on
Christmas Eve, and all persons who
have received seals through the mail,
requesting the purchase of the seals,
are asked to mail in remittance by
this date. A large number of the
seals were sent out in this manner
d and it is Mrs. Davenport's belief that
the envelopes and seals have been
laid aside and forgotten or overlook
" f ed en the part of many who received
them. She is not of the opinion that
interest is lacking so she is appeal
ing to those who have not sent in
, . their money for the seals to do so
I-,'., It has been pointed out that the
money realized from the sale of
eslSvH used to combat tuberculosis,
sad the greater the amount raised
Jiere the more money the local com
mittee will have to accomplish its
, . work here in Perquimans County.

The Squaws opened the lirt eame

one point in the final period caused
the game to go into an overtime con
test. During the extra three minutes
of play the Squaws racked up five
points to Central's one and the final
eount was 28-24 for Perquimans.
In the boys game Central got off
