Now In Progress
Funds are now being raised throughout
the Old Hickory Boy Scout council to car
ry on work for the coining year. Atten
tion is being called to the fact that the
campaign here also includes the excellent
Girl Scout program.
Scouting builds citizens by offering the
boys and girls opportunity for training in
leadership and achievement. Scouting also
provides excellent training in accomplish
ing many practical things. The activities
for boys and girls are so varied that a
multitude of merit badges may be earned.
Naturally, it takes money to run scout
ing programs. At the present time a
trained and capable field executive is
spending his full time in this area of the
Old Hickory council and is adding much to
the Boy Scout program with his work and
Solicitors are now calling on the people
to aid with their donations in keeping
Scout work on the upgrade. Although
scouting has made much progress, there
are hundreds of boys in Wilkes county in
need of scouting and who have not had
scouting opportunities. If present plans
materialize, scouting will be expanded to
give opportunities for many more boys to
Big Asset To Community
All who were aware of the acute and
desperate need for better recreational at
tractions in this community and the en
tire county only a few years ago will agree
that professional baseball here has filled
one great need for summer recreation. It
has provided clean entertainment for all
who like the national pastime.
In addition to providing recreation, the
coming of baseball has provided a number
or other tangible assets, particularly at
Memorial Park, which is used by every
body, as participants or spectators. The
baseball club erected the grandstand and
placed a metal fence around the field, the
fence alone costing about $1,000. The
club also paid $2,000 on the total cost of
about $3,500 for portable bleachers, and
some other facilities were placed by the
club, in exchange for rent of the park
during the baseball season for three years.
Now the club is faced with a desperate
financial problem. The 1948 season was
not successful financially. Class D base
ball is rarely, if ever, a profitable propo
sition from the standpoint of dollars and
cents. But the 1948 season was excep
tionally bad financially, and it has been
carefully figured that with favorable con
ditions a club here can break even. Twice
as many games were rained out during the
season as cduld be normally expected, and
every rained out game represents a big
loss. In August, when the team was draw
ing top crowds, seven games were rained
out, representing a cash loss of more than
The club is about $5,000 in the red, and
bills must be paid if a baseball club keeps
its franchise and operates. That is a law
of baseball, just as much as that three
strikes are out in the game.
Two plans are offered for making of
the deficit. One is sale of stock at $60 per
share with proceeds of sale applying on
the deficit. This stock is part of that now
owned by Tal Pearson, club founder and
president, who is donating it to help the
club stay here and operate. The other plan
is direct contribution from baseball fans
and others who want to see baseball con
tinue because they know it is good for the
This is October and is the time to get
ready for next year. The club must raise
the money now in order to proceed with
plans. Several moves are to be made to
lessen the risk of a recurring deficit, and
the club next year with an average break
from the weather should be able to pay
expenses. Few realise that it takes from
$35,000 to $40,000 to operate a club for
In Elkin recently the club faced a situ
ation almost identical with that here, and
$5,000 was assured from baseball sup
porters who declared that professional
baseball was the greatest development in
the recreational life of that community
during its history.
By Rev. Herbert
Spaugh, D. D.
When your thinking is bad, and you
need something good to substitute for it,
try these texts below. Substitute the good
for the bad. "Be not overcome of evil,
but overcome evil with good." Remember
that bad thinking originates from Satan,
while good thinking originates with God.
The Bible says, "Resist the devil and he
will flee from you." When evil starts to
come, say in your mind vigorously and
courageously, "Get thee behind me Sat
an." This is step one.
If you feel the need of forgiveness,
memorize and repeat:
"Come unto Me, all ye that labour and
are heavy laden, and I will give you rest
"I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy
transgressions for mine own sake, and
will not remember thy sins . . .
"Son, be of good cheer . . . Daughter,
be of good comfort . . . Thy sins be for
If you need strength, then memorize and
"For I the Lord thy God will hold thy
right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not;
I will help three. . . .
"For thou hast been a strength to the
poor, a strength to the needy in his dis
tress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow
from the heat, when the blast of the ter
rible ones is as a storm against the wall. . .
"So shall they fear the name of the
Lord from the west, and His glory from
the rising of the sun. When the enemy
shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of
the Lord shall lift up a standard against
him .... The name of the Lord is a strong
tower; the righteous runneth into it, and
is safe .... The steps of a good man are
ordered by the Lord: and He delighteth in
his way . . . But they that wait upon the
Lord shall renew their strength; they shall
mount up with wings as eagles; they shall
run, and not be weary; and they shall walk
and not faint." ~ - v?, - ? ?
If you are afraid, memorize and repeat:
"The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear? The Lord is the
strength of my life; of whom shall I be a
fraid? When the wicked, even mine ene
mies and my foes, came upon me to eat up
my flesh, they stumbled and fell ....
"I have been young, and now am old;
yet have I not seen the righteous foresak
en, nor his seed begging bread ....
"There shall not any man be able to
stand before thee all the days of thy life:
as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee:
I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee . . .
"And the Lord, He it is that doth go be
fore thee; He will be with thee, He will not
fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not,
neither be dismayed.
"When thou passeth through the wat
ers, I will be with thee ....
"My presence shall go with thee, and
I will give thee rest."
If you need guidance, memorize and re
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understand-1
ing. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, |
and He shall direct thy paths.
"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask
of God, that giveth to all men liberally,
and upbraideth not; and it shall be given
"And thine ears shall bear a word be
hind thee, saying, This is the way, walk
ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand,
and ye turn to the left ..."
