Edenton Plays First Elimination Game Friday 1936 Red Cross Drivel Starts November 22 Postponed In Chowan Due to United Chari ties Campaign NEW RECORD Red Cross Activities Re hearsed by Mrs. J. N. Pruden, Chairman The Red Cross campaign for mem l bership ip the; annual roll, call for C?howan County will begin on Friday, November 22. . JThe opening of this year’s drive was postponed from November 11, due to the efforts of the United Charities in: conducting a. cwnpayn to raise funds for the aged and helpless int the County, which Mrs. J. N. Priiden, Chowan County Red Cross chairman, did not wish.to interfere with. Smashing an all-time record in disaster relief operations, the Amer ican Red Cross in 1934-35 pushed up ward to new heights in its service to the people of the United States, says Mrs. Pruden in a resume of the year’s outstanding accomplishments. She is also much elated over the year’s re cord of Red Cross activities in Chow an County, numbering among them the formation of a course of hygiene and care of the sick in the schools, the distributing of yeast among suf ferers of pellagra, furnishing a first aid kit to colored schools as well as keeping them filled with supplies, sponsoring the home safety campaign in the County and sending Charles Wales to take a course in life saving. This instruction, however, could not be given by Mr. Wales this summer because of the quarantine due to the epidemic of infantile paralysis in the State. This course, it is expected, will be given next summer. One hundred and sixty times, in 37 of the 48 states and three insular territories, the Red Cross rushed re lief into communities tom by hurri cane, ravaged by devastating fires, innundated by surging flood waters or cringing beneath the blight of disease. Not in disaster work alone, how ever, did the Red Cross press forward in its service to humanity, Mrs. Pru den added. Bedside nursing care by Red Cross public health nurses shot upward over 30 per cent; safety and accident>prevention programs were broadened; membership in the junior organization rocketed; volunteers throughout the nation produced : million garments, and thousands of veterans and service men, many un aware of the government’s obligation to them, obtained compensation and claims through Red Cross home ser vice. Carrying out an early preduction that lowered family incomes woukl continue to make it impossible for many families to obtain proper hos pital care in cases of serious illness, nursing care in homes increased 39 per cent. Special health projects continued to cut great inroads Into communicable and dietary diseases. Thousands of children were immuniz ed against diphtheria, and in the south with its thousands of pellagra sufferers, Red Cross Chapters distri buted more than one hundred thous and pounds of yeast to curb this dis ease. Likewise, the Chapter Chairman continued, First Aid and Life Saving programs were speeded up in an ef fort to lessen the appalling number of deaths from preventable accidents occurring annually in the United States. With the death toll for the last fiscal year over the 100,000 mark, last minute arrangements for a greatly enlarged accident preven tion pjpgram are being rushed to completion. This campaign, Mrs. Pruden pre dicted, is destined to become the greatest contribution Red Cross has ever made to public welfare. Red Cross membership has ad vanced steadily during the past two years, keeping pace with this in crease in service, and it is expected that during the coming Roll Call period the 5,000,000 membership goal will be reached if not surpassed. In conclusion Mrs. Pruden said: "We are justly proud of these re cord breaking .accomplishments, but, as Admiral Grayson, Chairman of the American Red Cross, pointed out in a recent letter to your chairman, _we must not be contend to sit back rest on past mcordsN What we THE CHOWAN HERALD A HOME NEWSPAPER DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF CHOWAN COUNTY Edenton, Chowan County, North Carolina, Thursday, November 14, 1935. Vants new name FOR LOCAL HOTEL W. R. Horton Offers Prize of $5.00 To Person Who Suggests Desirable Name The name of the King’s Arms Tavern will again be changed. This decision has been made by W. R. Horton, manager, who is offering $5.00 as a reward to the person ‘ whose name is adopted by a- group of distinterested judges. Mr. Hor ton will give this prize of $5.00 to the United Charities in the name of the-peyson whose name is chosen! Mr. Horton, incommenting on the name of the hotel, said that although ■ rich- in historic value, he did not feel that the present name has commer cial value, which must be the first consideration. He wants a name, therefore, having commercial value and at the same time be a name which is featured in the history of the county such as the name of a prominent man or woman, a land mark or famous occurrence that would promote local history and at the same time be of commercial use. Three rules have been made for this contest: First, the word “Hotel” must be part of the name. Second, the name must be easy to spell and pronounce. Third, the name must not include over three words, prefer ably two. Anyone who desires to enter this contest is requested to deposit their name for the hotel in a box at Leg gett & Davis drug store before 6 o’clock Monday, November 18. The suggested names will then be gone over and a winner selected by the judges, who will be as follows: Mayor E. W. Spires, Richard D. Dixon and John W. Graham. The winner will be announced in next week’s issue of The Herald. Drive In Progress For Charities Fun The drive of the United Charitir to secure funds to care for the un employables in Chowan County dur ing the winter months is now in pro gress, with a few encouraging ad vance reports coming in that canvass ers have secured a generous response from a number who have been solicit ed. The entire county has been di vided into four divisions, as well as a colored division and a strong com mittee appointed for each group. These committees will canvass their respective communities, completing the work and reporting to W. J. Berryman, general chairman of the drive, today.

Graham’s Stag Party Monday Night BRIEF ADDRESS Every Section of County Represented In Large Gathering Close to 100 friends from all four corners of Chowan County gathered in the Parish House Monday night in response to an invitation from John W. Graham to attend a stag party given by him in honor of Lieutenant-Governor A. H. (Sandv) Graham, a candidate for governor in the coming election. Every guest was introduced to the guest of honor upon entering the building, Mr. Gra ham appearing very happy at the opportunity to make new friends John Graham in a brief address expressed his delight at the response to his invitation. He referred to Armistice Day and expressed a hope that the occasion would recap ture the spirit of the day. John A. Holmes introduced the guest of honor, who very briefly spoke to the gathering, commenting on Armistice Day and the necessity at the present time for citizens to de vote more time to the discussion of important problems. Mr. Graham expressed delight at the opportunity to make new friends. “A person must keep his friendship in repair,” he said, “and unless new friends are made he will soon be alone.” He urged his friends to use leisure time to a study and consideration of public problems, saying that years ago problems were thoroughly stud ied before laws were enacted, but that now laws are put in force with out knowing anything about them, and not using common sense in reaching conclusions. .Especially, on Armistice Day, said the speaker, we should take stock of our government—what the majority want they should have, and if citizens stand on the sidelines and allow the minority to rule they should not complain. He didn’t refer to his candidacy for governor, except to say that, he hoped to return late*, to talk to voters at length on public matters. In concluding his remarks . he paid tribute to the type of citizen ship in Eastern Carolina, and said that he was glad to mingle with the people, claiming many friendships through his connection with the American Legion, the Legislature and otherwise. Short remarks were also made by C. E. Kramer and Lloyd E. Griffin, the latter referring to his acquaint anceship with Mr. Graham while in his outfit during the World War, a.- well as working under him on the State School Commission. Mr. Griffir. said the honor guest was a fine sol dier and in time of peace as well as troublous times he was able to pre side with justice and impartiality. Mr. Griffin also paid tribute to those who failed to return from the World War and in the course of his re marks asked the gathering to pause for a short time in memory of Major W. S. Privott. The jpeal as served by the ladies ot St. Mary’s Guild was very delight ful and was reason for much favor able comment by all present Modes Os Punishment Cause Much Curiosity According to Fire Chief R, K. Hall many visitors were in Edenton Sun day to inspect the whipping post, ducking, stool and pillory which were erected on the Court House green during the Government Institute meeting Friday. The equipment had been taken down, however, and Mr. Hall explained the modes of punish ment at his home, where it was tak en, to visitors from Kinston t Green ville, Rocky Mount and other com munities. He plans to put up the contraptions at his home where they may be view ed by Edenton residents or visitors. Besides, Mr. Hall says, if the town finances the lumber, he will also build a gallows in connection with the oth er rigs so that folks may get a true glimpse of forms of punishment , meted out in years gone by.

The Edenton boys are unde feated but played a 0-0 tie with Roa noke Rapids, who refused to play off the tie. The Conference ruling in such a case is to draw r straws for the right to continue in the champion ship race, with the provision that if the team winning the draw proves to be the champions, they will be oblig ed to play a final game with the team which was tied. Edenton won this right Saturday when John A. Holmes and Coach Leon Brogden attended a meeting of conference officials in Raleigh. Roanoke Rapids was defeated last Friday by Elizabeth City, but the latter used two ineligible players, which left the status of Edenton the same as before the game, the contest being forfeited to Roanoke Rapids so far as conference play is concerned. The game Friday promises to be a hard-fought affair. The calibre of Smithfield’s team isn’t known, but on paper Edenton fans feel that the Edenton team has an edge on their opponents. Smithfield has defeated Warsaw, Fuquay Springs and Chapel Hill, while they played New’ Bern to a tie. The only chance for a compar ison of the two teams is the fact that New Bern is admittedly much weaker than last year’s team, while the Edenton team’s. performance in the last game played showed a team of just about equal strength as last year. Coach Brogden feels very optimis- : tic for a win over Smithfield. For a time it was doubtful if Worth Spen cer would be able to play due to an injured shoulder, but he has been taking part in practice work and will most likely start the game. William Cayton, who has been out of the line up since the season opened due to a broken arm, may also be able to take his old position as quarterback. Aside from these two players the re mainder of the teani is in first class shape, having had a rest last week, and ready to give of their best to again be State champions. The game promises to be very in teresting and a large crowd is ex pected to be on hand. The student body is now selling tickets for the game and citizens, are urged to turn out in large numbers, for the school is under heavy expense to bring Smithfield here as well as pay for a referee, A crowd as large as attend-* ed the Edenton-Garner game last year is hoped for and will be needed in order to pay out. In event Edenton wins from Smith field, their next opponent will be the w’inner of the Whiteville-Sanford game which will also be played Fri day afternoon. If Whiteville wins they will play in Edenton Friday af ternoon of the next week, but if San ford wins they will meet Edenton on the Rocky Mount field. Coach Brogden will use the usual lineup to start the game Friday, which is scheduled to start prompt ly at 3 o’clock. A pep meeting will be held to night at the Court House, when the student body will uncork a pent-up amount of enthusiasm that will no doubt make citizens know there will be a football game here on the mor row. W. F. Walters Goes To Conference Next Week Rev. W. F. Walters will leave next week for Wilmington to attend the annual conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. The board of stewards are now winding up the year’s work of the church, and Mr. Walters is expected to be able to present a creditable report to the conference.
