Possibly the most largely at-]
tended and impressive memorial
services held by the Franklin
County Memorial Association in!
Louisburg in many years were the;
services Sunday when the Court)
House was filled with people whoi
had gathered to pay another tri-j
bute to those who gave their alii
for the preservation of liberty, j
freedom and Christian religion in
the great World War.
Supt. G. B. Harris, of Frank
linton, gave a splendid address of
welcome to all, especially the
many visitors, following the invo
cation by Rev. J. D. Simons, ofl
the Louisbtirg Baptist Church. I

audience led by Prof. I. D. Moon,1
of Louisburg College. C. R. Sy
kes called t>he roll of deceased sol
diers. and A1 Hodges, Jr.. sound
Supt. W. R. Mills very grac
iously presented the speaker. In
his remarks he told his hearers
that while the one to speak to
them did not go to France he did
give liberally of his time, his
means and his eloquence in arous
ing patriotism to back up the
boys, and presented Mr. W. H.
Yarborough as Franklin County's
Calling attention to the passing
of time Mr. Yarborough stated
that a child born at' the begin
ning of the war would be able to
vote in the coming election and
those who gathered in this Court
House in response to the draft are
now in middle age. sobered and
trained into a more serious life.
The great War President has gone
and our great and beloved War
Governor, Bickett is gone.
He told how that in little more
than a year a million and a half
men had recrossed the same
ocean that Columbus had crossed
four hundred and twenty-five
years ago, illustrating how the
spirit of liberty and freedom our
forefathers had fought for in the
war of 1776 had grown so strong.
Is it any wonder, he said, that
that spirit) of liberty, that that
quick response was heard across
the whole of Europe.
He said there was a certain
school of historians that held that
America went into the war to save
investment's in Europe. In some
few cases this may be true, but
not so in this. No country of
free people go to war for this pur
pose. The object must involve a
principle. In 1776 our forefath
ers fought for freedom. In 1861-5
it was a principle of State's rights
? not slavery.
Those who died in France and
their comrades will never have
cause to be ashamed as they
fought for Democracy, to preserve
the liberty and freedom which
we so sacredly enjoy and must
protect. They sought a faith su
preme. That faith which has
safeguarded all Democracies.
Theirs was the same spirit that
guided the hands that wrote the
declaration of independence. The
same spirit that guided Andrew
Jackson, Woodrow Wilson and is
guiding Franklin Delano Roose
While President Wilson was in
France working for Democracy
10s enmeies were busy at home.
They succeeded. It broke his
heart, his body and sent him to a
premature grave. But the vic
tory was short lived, and Democ
racy is going forward, a tribute
to men and women of vision who
are doing what they can to serve
t'he people. We can do nothing
more to add to the fame of the
boys who died in France or re
pose in their native soil in Frank
lin County. Their fame will go
down in history. It is secure.
The greatest thing we can do to
their memory Is to give ourselves,
as t'hey gave themselves to de
mocracy of all the people of all
the land. It is not on the battle
field that all great questions are
solved. The greatest question in
all the world today is that of de
mocracy. Lets give to that great
cause our allegiance of all Amer

Vacation time in Louisburg
again! Which goes to say, it s tip1?
for Vacation Bible School again.
The Louisburg Baptist Church
through the Sunday School depart
ment will promote two weeks of
Bible study, handwork, story-tell-?
ing, and a great deal of fun.' We ?
are planning for boys and girls
from four to sixteen years of age.
There will be four departments,
Beginner, Primary, Junior and In
termediate. In two weeks time
your boy or girl may get 30 hours
of study, which is more, than he
would receive in tjie Sunday School
in over a year at the rate of 30
minutes per Sunday.
The following schedule for pro
moting and carrying on of school
will be followed: Friday, June
3rd , is Preparation Day. Ati 2
P M. we will register pupils for
our school. At 2:30 P. M. we will
have our first Processional and
worship service. Then .we wiU'have
our first sessions in each depart
ment to acquaint the boys and
girls with their class rooms and
plan of work for the term. This
session, including the Procession
al. will last two hours. At 4:30
our Parade will begin. Thus will
end the first day, a Preparation
Day for the best Vacation Bible
Watch for the hour and watch
for the date! School begins in full
swing Monday morning. June-6t<h.,
at 9:00 A. M. and closes at 12:00
\ M Three full, busy but happy
hours. At 12 o'clock the faculty
will meet each day. Each day we
will take an offering, which will
go for Medical Missions among
Our School is being promoted
In this way. First, a faithful facul
ty are investing the best of them
selves, their time and effort iu
two weeks of training for the boys
and girls. Second, parents are sup
porting the school by donations
and the use of their cars. Third,
the Woman's Missionary Society
is preparing lunches for the child
ren and helping in other ways.
I Fourth, the church has appropriat
ed $15.00, which will cover the
i major part of the Cost of the
i school. Fifth, at the Commence
ment! a free-will offering will be
received from the parents and
friends of the children.
One of the greatest priviledges
that may come to a pastor is the
close association that he may have
wit'h his boys and girls. The Vaca
tion Bible School gives the pastor
that opportunity. Dr. J. D. Simons,
the pastor of our school, will be in
the midst of our work overseeing,
guiding and encouraging in all
our efforts. He. with his associates
will actively be associated with
the boys in their handwork. He
will also guide the boys and girls
in the Intermediate Department
In their Bible study.
Miss Elizabeth Lassiter will be
Principal and Secretary of the
school. Mrs. Alice Uzzlle will be
Pianist'. The members of the facul
ty grouped by departments are
as follows: Beginner, Mrs. J. D.
