Harrell sat on a rock pile,
placed the muzzle of the
double-barreled shotgun
against his lips and blew a
long plaintive wail. It

“From the top of one of

terrain surrounding us,
“you could hear that for a

Harrell owns a dairy

there is just no time for
grouse hunting. Yesterday,
for example, in addition to
daily milking and feeding
chores, he played midwife
to a cow and settled the
estate of a deceased mule
which came out on the
short end of an encounter
with a truck. But most

Sunday with Rev. Charles
W. Dick of Western Heights
Baptist Church, Peters
burg, Va., as guest evan
gelist. Services will be
held nightly at 7:30 o’clock
through Friday.
Mr. Dick received his
theological training at the
New Orleans Baptist Sem
inary. He is married and
has two children.
The music will be under
the direction of Woodrow
Rev. Johnnie Bradley,
pastor of Calvary Baptist
Church in Rocky Mount,
will be preaching at Rocky
Hock at 7:45 P. M. Mon
day through Sunday, in
cluding Saturday. He is
well known in this area,
guests. Today he was
helping me host Jan Won
grey, outdoor writer for a
South Carolina newspaper.
“Several years back,”
Harrell continued, “I was
grouse hunting not too far
from here with a friend
and somehow we got sep
arated. Hoping he was
within hearing distance, I
blew my gun barrel, wait
ed a few minutes, and
blew it again. Well, it
worked, and when we got
together again my hunting
partner told me about the
darndest thing that hap
pened. He said he was
sitting on a stump resting
when he heard me blow
the barrel. Suddenly a
boy came running down
the mountain by him so
fast he didn’t see my part
ner sitting there. He
stopped in a ditch down a
ways from the stump and
covered himself with
leaves. Then when I blew
the second time, the boy
exploded from under the
leaves and fled, obviously
in panic, on down the
mountain out of sight.”
Wongrey winked at me
and we hunkered down as
Harrell went on with the

Mr. Gibson taught in the
public schools before en
tering Kentucky Baptist
College and later South
eastern Baptist Seminary.
A nursery is provided
fcr each service and the
public is cordially invited
to attend.
“I was teaching at the
local high school at the
time,” he said, “so I asked
around among the stu
dents. In a day or two I
found the boy and inquir
ed about what had hap
“ ‘I was deer huntin’ out
of season up there,’ he
told me, ‘and never had
been that far from home
by myself before, and I
was g little uneasy. I
don’t know whether I was
scared of being caught or
of being off by myself.
Then about dark I heard
this horn blow from way
off. First thing jumped in
my mind was that it was
the end of time and Gab
riel was blowin’ his horn.
I figured the best place for
me was with my kin. I
thiew down my gun and
ran down the mountain,
but then I decided I’d be
safe if I hid. So I cov
ered up with leaves in a
little ditch. But in a few
minutes I heard Gabriel
blow again and figured
he’d seen me, so I lit out
for the house. Course,
when nothing came of it
all night, I began to feel
easy again’.”
Wongrey and I found
the story humorous but ex
pressed good-natured doubt
about its veracity. Now,
A. D. Harrell is a man of
unquestioned integrity and
has never been reported to
take liberty with the truth.
When pressed, however, he
admits that certain license
is permitted in these mat
ters when slight embellish
ment of the facts makes
for a better story.
In any regard, Harrell
takes no chances now on
scaring boys in the woods.
He carries a whistle.

Many of us can sum up those
j simply stating: ‘1 want happiness for me and
my family.”
“To study without thinking is waste of time;
To think without studying is dangerous.”
We don’t particularly want this happiness
handed to us—we want to feel we have deserved
it through our own contributions and personal
efforts. An inner-instinct tells us nothing worth- 4 *
while is obtained without effort. Common sense
tells us that roses will have thorns—and any
adequate road bed has a hard-rock base. Four
thousand years of recorded history has taught us
this fact.
One of our most unfair criticisms of others is:
‘They have had it handed to them.”
Take a good look at our heritage. We cannot
ignore our many great legacies—our freedom—
our prosperity— our way of life! These were
fought for and won by our forefathers. People
who removed many thorns and labored on the
hard-rock roadbeds. And didn’t they impi.nj
most of the noble ideals within us?
It is well that we remind ourselves that we,
too, will be die forefathers of future genera*
tions and we will be handing them something
eitner good or bad.

In another article which
I read recently concerning

the blame for much of
these problems is Absent

How to lose
5 a lot of weight
Maybe you’ve been in our
pharmacy and noticed all the
ways there are to lose weight.
Pills, tablets, capsules—all
kinds. Most are designed to
reduce your appetite—and thus, you. All well and
good, but if you have a serious weight problem,
there is only one sensible thing to do. See your
physician. He will prescribe a diet, tailored to
your condition, with proper drugs and nutritive
supplements to make it safe and sure. We, as
pharmacists, dispense these more potent drugs
only at his direction—a practice which exists for
one reason—to protect your health.
