My friend Florian Arthur hopped on me with both
feet Shortly after last week’s Herald was delivered,
Florian felt that an injustice was done him by Ihe Her-1
aid in making arrangements with Allen Studios of De |
troit Michigan, to take pictures of as many children as
possible in Chowan County and surrounding territory
Thursday, October 7. Florian feels that this arrange
ment will hurt his studio business considerably, coming
us it does rather close to the Christmas season. Hovy
ever this arrangement was not entered into to hurt his
business, but rather as a medium to increase reader in
terest in The Herald. Under the arrangement there
will he no charge for making these pictures although if
any pictures are desired, a charge will be made. Where
The Herald benefits is the fact that free cuts will bt
furnished by the studio to be used for publishing lj>c tu res
of the youngsters in subsequent .issues of The Herald
This same arrangement was carried out by Ihe Huai
1 some years ago which proved very popular and created
a great deal of interest among not only Herald subscrib
ers but others as well. 1 hope many pictures of kiddies
will be taken next Thursday, which will appear in The
Herald later, and I also hope that Florian s business will
not be hurt as much as he at first expected.
One of the rooms at the new Masonic temple looked
like a shoe store Tuesday night when •» group of Masons
met to practice for the dedication ceremony Wednesday
night. In order not to mess up the carpet m the lodge
room, the hoys took off their shoes and piled em out
ride the door. So far as 1 know each one managed to
ovf his own shoes. Ami sneaking about the new Ma
sonic temple. members of Unanimity Lodge and the East
ern Star apparently do not belong to a. union, tor a g-un.
of Vm have been working night and day in order to get
the temple in readiness for the dedication Wednesday
night and open house Sunday afternoon—and Without
pay, much less time and a half. Their pay is the■■sat'
1 isf action- of having a beautiful and modern building, one

lav little Debbie Wilkins, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis
George Wilkins, was in the temple while her mother was ■
working. Flaying with a doll carnage, the little girl -
bumped against the wall. “Be cuioful. Debbie ealiee

Most everything is turning modern these days, Mini
driving in the county the other day 1 passed a small out-.
I'bni'.iLaiT where a, group was grading tobacco. The mod

building and a program in progress while work was g >-
