other charter members; Alfred
Thomas, Buddy Powell, Morton
Jarret, and Ankie Rowe. Also pre

W. Ferrene, advisor to the group,

and other pertinent matters were
discussed. It was decidgd what
type of keys the meiWers wanted

“Where Ciould I Go But To The
Lord,” (dedicated to Mr. Craw

hope that their “unsuual alto,’
Sid Carraway will be in voice
for the next presentation.

Ray West Owens, 21 a student
here at P. J. C. was killed in an
automobile wreck which happened
just in the early morning of
March 29 o«i the highway leading
to Hamlet. Also in the accident
was another P. J. C. student, Tom
Mullins, of Huntersville, and two
local men Joe Kincaid, the driver,
nd Otto’ Wilson. All four were
rushed to the Ham'let hospital
where Owens was pronounced
dead and the other three occu
pants of the car were treated.
Mullins was rather badly hurt,
but Kincaid and Wilson sustained
only minor injuries
Police said Kincaid apparently
failed to make the curve at the
intersection of routes 74 and 38
inside Hamlet, and his 1949 Olds-
mobile struck a pole. Owens was
thrown from the car which rolled
on some distance.
Owens was the so*i of Mr. and
Mrs. B. H. Owens of Fountain, N.
