the state camp for the Young Tar

getting up at 6:45 a. m., going to the
atheltic field and taking a series of
exercises for fifteen minutes and then
to the lake a few minutes for a dip. j

Press Praises Talking
Picture Made of Byrd
At The South Pole'
The feature attraction at the Peo
ples Theatre Monday and Tuesday,
August 18 and 19, is the Paramount
picture “With Byrd at the South
Pole,” a screen production of Com
mander Richard Evelyn Byrd’s flight
over the South Pole.
The picture, in sound, presents a
very clear idea of the perils and the
hardships overcome and the unflag
ging courage displayed by Command
er Byrd and his crew. There are some
sharp flashes not to be equaled in
the motion pictures’ recording of ac
tualities. There are human touches,
too, and comic ones.
Here is what the press has to say
about the picture:
“One of the supreme achievements
of the movies.”—New York American.
“The most heartening human docu
ment the camera has ever filmed.”—
New York Telegram.
“Probably the greatest movie ev
er made.” — Editorial, Washington
“Sets a new mark in picture mak
ing.”—New York Evening World.
“With Byrd at the South Pole,” is
a fast moving, beautifully photo- ;
graphed, admirably edited and ex
cellently titled film of a brave and
worthy adventure, and into the most
powerful sequence—that shows actual
flight above the southern polar re
The visual record of the feat ac
complished by the American hero and
his intrepid followers is more im
pressive than any volume containing
the printed story. The film is liber
elly besprinkled with the glimpses of
human interest, human drama, an]
pathos, all of which are so essential

At Halifax Jail
(Special To The Herald)
Opening the Kangaroo Court in Ha
lifax County jail in regards to the two
men Cock Robin and “Bad Eye” John
son, arrested on or about the second
day of August, and who were tried by
W. O. Thompson of Rosemary and
put under $200 and $400 bonds.
Judge Gay called court at 9:30 and
of course the prisoners were present.
Sheriff Hinton Faison received orders
lrom the Judge to bring the prison
ers into court. On examining the pris
oners the Kangaroo solicitor, Lue Fai
son, found them guilty of breaking
and entering Halifax jail without
Long was fined $1 and costs of
court because he could not prove not
guilty of selling Cock Robin home
brew. The $1 was turned over to Ray
mond Acree, treasurer, to buy sugar
r.nd coffee for the other prisoners.
Tant was fined the same but did
not have the money so Judge Gay
sentenced him to the strap. He got 10
down south, 10 out west and 5 across
the Hindenburg line. Solicitor Faison
adjourned court. This is a warning to
boys yet to ome. Beware of the Kan
garoo Court of which K. G. Gay is
Judge and Hinton Faison sheriff.
