The coimumnjBiueut eieroUoo of
Louisburg College opened with a re
cital by the Junior pupils of Mioses
Adams, Stanbury and Hall In the de
partment of piano, of Miss Petty In
voice and of Miss Rent! in expression.
First on the program was a quar
tet "Awahsnlnff nf thr nii-ftr" render

Misses Mary Munden, Virginia Beck,
Olivia McKinne and Hattie Williams.
These little girls did well and their
performance was received with hearty
apijjause by the audience.

Two vocal solos held place on the
program -1Lullaby Low" sung by Miss
Ivolie Hunt and "Wait for the Roses"
? y Miss Elizabeth Kittrell. The ac
companiments were played by Miss
Ccowell, one of the' piano grad
ual^ who also took part in a piano
duct with Miss Edyth Guffy.
Twa other piano duets were played,
a Galop from Hoist by Misses Goldle
Morriaette and Lois Guffy; and Plz
zacatl from Sylvia by Misses Pauline
Eason and Josephine Bandy.
Further variety and charm were ad
ded to the afternoon's entertainment
by the introduction of several humor
ens readings. Eugene Field's poem
? "Seeln' Things at Night" was well ren
dered by Miss Lucille Jennings. Miss
Louise Egerton entertained the com
pany by her rendition of "Jimmie
Brown's Sister's Wedding." "Uncle
WilUe's Cannibals" recited by Miss
Pauline Pearson was also greatly ap
The exercises closed with a chorus
from Santa Lucia by the Glee Club.
At the close of the Junior Recital
everyone was Invited to Inspect the
art exhibit which was tastefully dls-'
played in the library on the first floor.
The art class is under the direction
of Miss Burdette Joyner. The Art
Exhibit has always been an important
feature of commencement, but the dis
play this year surpasses all former ex
hlbits both In number of pieces exhib
ited, the variety of subjects and the
excellence of the work .
The center of the room wr.a occu
pied by long tables on which were
arranged th^" exhibits of Misses Susie
Benton, Margaret Morgan and Alma
Scull in Kindergarten work of the
Prang Course. A little kitchen made
by Miss Scull was especially attrac
were played by
The work of the two graduates in
the department of art, Mlaa Prances
Smithwlck and Ellis Credle were es
pecially meritorious. A stiudy from
nature of the college well with a back
ground of blossoming peach treeB
made by Miss Credle attracted a good
deal of attention. So also did two
portraits from life made by the same
young lady. These were really re
markable portraits for a student so
young and with no more experience
than Miss Credle has had.
Many favorable comments were
passed on the large screens painted
by Misses Rhoda Winstead, Sara Towe
and Frances Smithwlck. A Japanese
scene by MIbs Nolle Hunt and an In
dian picture by Miss Katherine Pleas
ants deserve especial mention. Other
pictures which seemed especially to
delight the observers were Miss Poy's
Windmill, Miss Harwell's Stag; a pas
toral scene by Mlsa Qradie Parker and
marine pieces by Misses Lola Ouffy
and Margaret Ledbetter. Limited
time and space forbid that every lnd
vidual picture receive particular men
tion but there were many others which
gave much pleasure to the eyes of
The climax of the whole exhibit,
however was In the large and beauti
ful array of hand-painted china. This
was arranged to the best advantage
and was really wonderful.
Especially beautiful wero the pink
Bet painfed by Miss Franooa Smith
wlck, also one In gold with the initial
in gold by the same hand; a breakfast
set by Mrs. Stuart Davis; a salad set
by Miss Llisle Stuart, a gold Acldetch

blue by Miss Stan bury; a breakfast
set by Miss Olandora Mardlson; a set
striped with blue by Miss Lolp Ouffy
and a pink set by Miss Nell Jones, a
tea set by Max Allen; and many beau
tiful odd pieces besides.
Much faithful work was shown in
the scrap-books made by the gradu
ates Mlsaes Credle and Smithwlck.
> These gave some of the greatest ar
tists of all Vges with many beautiful
copies of their masterpieces,
A unique feature or the 1922 Com
mencement was the luncheon glvsn by
the senior, clean teachers, Misses Lane
and Harwell Tuesday afternoon. The
luncheon w-a? served at the Franklin

Tuesday overling May sixteenth a
tremendous down pour of rain at 7:30
the hour appointed for out of door
class day exercises caused a deviation
from the published schedule and the
annual commencement concert in the
college chapel was given first.
As opening number .the Glee Club
sang a chorus from Dvorak, "The Vil
bet." The Glee Clob also rendered
the closing number on the program
"Merry June" by "Vincent. The voices
which were well blended gave distinct
pleasure to the large ^audience which
had braved the bad wealher In order
to be present.
A duo "Vaise Caprtcs" playetl -by
Misses Julia Daniels and Susie Crow
ell was meritorious throughout. An
other duo further on in the program
Moszowski's "Serenata" was played by
Misses Nellie Newbern and Oma Bliss
Lewis with delicacy and beauty.
| Low's "Brlllante Walzer" also a duo,
was rendered In a vigorous and virile
style by Misses Sara Towe and Ellis
A double duet, vocal, "Merry Zinga
rellas" by Misses Maude Ashley, Janle
Bolton, Bettle Holden and Willie Pleas
ants was especially pleasing.
A monologue, "Daisy's Music Prac
tice Hour" by Miss Anna Gtay Watson
was received with enthusiastic ap
plause by - the audience. The piece
was originally scheduled for the jun-^
ior concert Saturday afternoon, but as
little Miss Watson was ill at that time
one of the'nibre advanced pupils ex
changed places- with her.
Two other humorous readings dur
ing the evening afforded much amuse,
ment; "Aunt Jane's Visit to the City"
by Miss Sara Johnson and "A Chris
tian Soldier" by Miss Rhoda Winstead.
iThe latter was a monologue of a very
bad little boy at Sunday School.
A piano duet "Marche-Militaire"
was ably presented by Misses Ana
Woods and Clara Greene; another "Po

style and good judgment by Misses

The Claas history was read by Miss

first speech to our people In hi* Con

Pou, the present representative from
the fourth Congressional District. The
speaker was Introduced Dy Mr. Wiley
W. Holmes who characterized him"**
one of North Carolina's biggest m<n.
Addresslng__hlmi?plf in liln Inmr? an
felTow citizen, fellow taxpayer* and
visiting candidates from adtota&g
counties, Mr. Person entered upon ?
speech that was well taken by thoae
who heard him from the repeating oW
breaks of applause. He said (he
question of taztti^n was the greatMt
question con!r}ntlng the pejplo of
North Carolina, from an economical
c.i'i educational standpoint us well as
political, tie sa d the laws passed by
i le legislature p. .iced the burden up
on the land owners in both country
and town and beseeched the most
careful selection of the men to repre
sent the^countles and districts in tie
coming 'legislature. He referred to
Mr. Pou by stating that "My opponent
made the Keynote speech at the Stale
Democratic Convention in which he
said taxes would be greater and ad
vised any man in North Carolina who
is not in favor of high taxes to go to
the republican party." The speaker
said he would not accept the invlta
I tlon that he was a Democrat long be
] fore Mr . Pou, that he had nefter
! scratched a ticket and exJJeoted to re
Imain a Democrat. He charged that
| his opponent was in favor of Cornora
I lions. Ttie speaker stated that he
| wanted to see every dollar In North
[Carolina pay the the same tax by lift
ing the burden from the home owifer
and placing a part of the tax on the
corporations, stocks and bonds. Re
ferring to his investigations before
[starting his suit against the Tax Com
mission lib said he found 4,500 c6r
I porations that were almost tax free.
; He read advertisement from the News
! Observer of tax free securities advi^-,
ling the purchase before May first t?
| escape taxes. "I am not speaking of
| this to complain but as a matter of
i justice to you" said the speaker.
He stated that there was two class
jes of people in North Carolina ? the
tax payer and the tax spender, and
that one man out of every ten was
supported by the taxpayers all of the
latter being opposed to him because
he believed In reducing salaries, and
that when a man had served twenty
two years in office he had completed
his usefulness. He said that his op
i ponents holding office bad become a
| national joke, and that he was treat?
! ing his office as a private snap rath
ler than a public trust. Mr. Person
] said he had been reliably Informed
ithat Mr. Pou had put every member
I of his family on the public pay roll
] and that he bad educated his four
[children at the public expense. He
characterized Mr. Pou as a cliff dwelU
'er_ in Washington, a stranger in Ills
own district who returns like the
prodigal Bon every two yearB to ask for
his re-election, after which he is not
heard from until a few flower and gar
den seeds begin to flow before anoth
er campaign. He said Mr. Pou was
sollcltbr of the Raleigh district for
twelve years before going to Congress
making thirty-tour years he has been
maintained by the public treasury.
"Wb6 stands for Pou'- asked the speak
er to answer It in the next voice by
saying It was the big Moneyed inter
ests, corporations and office holders,
who had B#ta "they would beat me It
It costs 150,000.00." He said they
were better organised than le Ktt
Klux. If elected to succeed Mr. Pott
he would unmask the extravagance ot
the United States. He stated tbat cor
porations owned 55 per cent of the
property of North Carolina which a
mount contributed absolutely nothing
to schools, roads and local improve
ments. He said there was $500.000, 000
worth of stocks In North Carolina that
were on the tax books at $17,000,000.
Bringing his Illustrations nearer home
he read a letter from the State Audi
tor stating that there was ll.OOO.OOO
of stock listed for taxation upon which
$15,000 tax was levied, while In Frank
lin County there was $16,000,000 worth
of real and personal property that
was assessed $286,000 .00.
He stated that the people of North
Carolina demanded relief or thera
would be rebellion from the rule of
the pin headed politicians.
Referring to local matters hi' *ald
the postofflce at Loulsburg had l'0?n
divided Into three parts with l oo's
consent and one of the parts was re
publican. Referring again to his tax
suit he said the people of tho Stat*
would watch tho Supreme Court la
Its decision of the tax question, and
would watch the lower court next
week. "No man In Franklin
who votes for Kd Pou can ever haw
a light to complain of high ta*a?,'*
said Mr. Person.
Mr. Person concluded his
by saying that all who believed In low
taxes, equalisation of the burden of
taxation and equal rights to ell ' "Id

The meeting of the Tobacco grow
ers in the Court House Tuesday at
the noon recess of Court, proved to be
most interesting and enthhsiastic. Mr.
L. V. Merrill, Jr., F*ield Manager for
this district for' the Association, af
ter being introduced by Representa
tive J. B. King, made a most inter
esting xaiE to the many present where i
in he stated that the Association in
Kentucky had met with the greatest I
success. He said the Association was
selling tobacco for 27 cents average
and expected to rajse the price in the
near future due to the shortness of
the crop. That the farmers received
9 cents a pound average on delivery
would receive 9 cents more on May
20th, and still more when the crop
was sold. He said that the farmer
in Kentucky sold his 1920 crop for an
average of 10 1-2 cents which shows
the advantage of the Association and
that upon the strength of its success
9000 growers had voluntarily joined
the Association since the market open
ed. He stated that 98 per cent of the
| banks in Kentucky were endorsing
I Co-operative Marketing. Referring to
: Wilson he said the opposition was
weakening to such an extent that one
of the biggest banks there, headed by
some of the biggest tobacco men were
I seeking the business of the Associa
tion. That the Association had 75 to
SO per cent of the Warehousemen of
I the State and the Association was
j headed with the biggest, soundest and
,best business men in the South. Hf
.introduced Mr. E. D. McDowell, a
former member of Monk Adams & Co.
Tobacco speculators Of Wilson, wiio
has gone with the Cooperat've Mar
keting. Mr. McDowell stated that
he was born a farmer, had lived on
the farm until he had found he could
.not. make a living on account of not
[being treated fairly in the sale of bW
I produce and left to enter tobacco bus
iness. He had been with the biggest
tobacco cortflpdntea , had run warehous
es and bad been a member of a big
Speculating Companx^_. Jie realized
the farmer wag not getting a square
deal and saw that the principles of
the Associattion were right and he de
cided to cast his lot with the farmer
as he knew there was no power that
could hinder their success. He told
his hearers that no wonder the big
Warehousemen who had grown enor
mously rich at the expense of the far
mer didn't want to give up his foun
tain of wealth.
Mr. W. M. Person responded to
an invitation to speak and said that
the man who stands in the way of this
great movement, whether he be an in
dependent warehouseman or' farmer,
would hot only be overwhelmed nut
would be drowned in the great wave3
of success. He said the farmers now
have two trusts ? one in God and on6
in Cooperative Marketing.
The meeting was a most enthusias
tic one and much enjoyed by all pres
ent, and will, no doubt, mean much
