C. Conference, held in connection with the meeting of the conference. The dinner was held in honor of Bishop and irs. W. A. Hilliard who have presided over the conference for the past four years. The dinner was unique in the fact that the diners heard William H. W. Anderson, secretary-treasurer, Tobacco Growers Information Committee, Raleigh, discuss the recent tobacco situation, as it related to the production and marketing of the product. The purported cut back on acreage is of grave concern to the state, due to the fact many of the constituents of the denomination depend upon tobacco for their livelihood. Bishop Hilliard has shown much interest and. invited Anderson to address the dinner. The top left picture shows the persons who spoke. The top right is a continuation of the principals. Mrs. and Bishop Hilliard are shown in the bottom picture with Rev. D. L. Blakey, who served as toastmaster.

Net income was $1,900,223 or $.64 per share compared with $1,250,401 or $.42 per share in the year-ago first hair. Levine noted that this year the companey had changed to a 13-week reporting basis,and that that the sales and earnings peaks were attained in one less selling day in this year's second quarter and four less selling days in this year's first half than in the comparable periods a year ago. He said that the gains are attributable to higher year-to-sales in most of the existing stores throughout the retail shoe chain, as well as the successful opening of new units during the company's fall expansion program. "At the end of the first half we had 285 units in operation compared with 248 a year ago. Since the start of the current fiscal year we have had a net increase of 24 stores, putting us well on target to meet our objective of 300 or more units by the end of our June 1976 fiscal year. "Based on the company's performance in the first half, it appears virtually certain that we will achieve our goal of a seventh consecutive record year for Pic 'N Pay," Levine said.
