St. Stephen's Men
Hear Rev. Robinson
Rev. Peter Robinson, rector of
St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in
Sanford, presented a challenge to
the members of the Men’s Follow
ship Club of St. Stephen’s Episcopal
Church in Erwin, at their regular
meeting last night.
Rev. Mr. Robinson was guest
speaker, and he introduced the
members byway of a collection of
color pictures, to a church project
with which the lay members and
most of the clergy are unfamiliar.
Camp Delany, the summer camp
for colored near Wake Forest.
“Camp Delany will not present
as happy a picture as Vade Mec
um,” he warned before showing
the pictures. "There is plenty of
room for improvement.”
He cited the words of Bishop
Coadjutor the Rt. Rev. Richard
Baker who told the members at a
diocesan meeting that their con
sciences should not rest easy until
the facilities at this camp are
equal or nearly so to those of the
white camp at Vade Mecum.
‘ Even Most of the Episcopal
clergy had not seen the camp, the
speaker said. Comprising a tract
of 80 acres, including a lake, it
was purchased by the church in
1945 and set up as a summer camp
for Negroes.
"Our church.” Mr. Robinson
pointed out. “is the only church in
the entire state of North Carolina
that has anything of this kind for
Negroes.” The camp was named
in honor cf Bishop Delany. a Negro
suffragan Bishop who worked a
mong the Negroes of the state.
The pictures, taken by the speak
er. showed views of the present
structure of the camp, including
the former chicken barn converted
into a chapel, and the new cement
block wash and shower building
of which the campers are partic
ularly proud.
He pointed out the needed- im
provements and concluded. "Time
after time while 1 was visiting this
camp. I was impressed with the
tremendous opportunity that we
have here. I have tried to show
you with these pictures, what can
be done with something that is
Much of the present work at the
camp nas been done under the di
rection of Rev. Robert Johnson,
Negro Episcopal minister who serves
churches in Rocky Mount and Wil
son. Much, however, remains to be
done, and this offers an excellent
opportunity for the churches in
the diocese.

named President: Ray D. Caldwell.

Winston Tells Club
M. E. Winston, Director of the Dunn Hospital, omt
lirted for the members of the Dunn Rotary Club at their
meeting Friday night, the progress, not only of the local
hospital, but of hospitals ir general.
The speaker outlined the pro
gress of hospitals from the early
Hindu and Egyptian hospitals
through the Graeco-Roman era and
the early Christian era to the pre
sent time.
He drew a laugh when he re
counted the novel method of anes
thesia used by the early Egyptian
physicians, of hitting the patient
adroitly over the head with a
wooden mallet with sufficient forc°
to render him unconscious, but not;
to fracture the skull.
Although the history of medicine
and surgery dates from an early
age. the speaker related, the oriein
of hospitals was much later. The
first American hospital, he said !
"■« iprorrorated in Philadelphia ir
1732. This famous Blockley. later
developed into the present Phila
delnhia General.

Even since 1945. he said, the
Dunn Hospital has felt the impact
of this increase and the amount
booked in 1951 showed an increase
of 121.73 percent over 1945.
The first board meeting of the
Dunn Hospital was held on Aug- ;
ust 28. 1940, with J. B. Ennis, Dr. !
J. R. Johnson. Marvin Wade. D- j
Fred Flemming. Rev. Thomas W. :
Fryer. Miss Lily Davis and R. L. I
Croinartie present, he said.
Ennis was named Chairman, |
Wade, vice-chairman. E. P. Davis, j
treasurer and R. L. Cromartie, Jr..
Secretary. The hospital had been ■
built but the opening was delayed |
until the fall of 1940. he said. i
Although a large percentage of
hospitals throughout the country (
are operating at a deficit. Mr. Win
ston said, the Dunn Hospital is un
usual in that it has done well. Dur
ing the “801 l Weevil” period in ;
1948 and 1949 it kept its doors open
in spite of the fact that thefre was
an SIB,OOO deficit. The financial con
dition is now good.
“It has always been the policy
of the Dunn Hospital,” Mr. Win- <
ston said proudly;' “to admit any
one who knocks for admission, white
or black, rich or poor, high or low. j
“Unfortunately," he added, “we do (
not have accomodations for Indians, j
but hope to be in a position to of- |

As an example, patients from the i
county, and from Sampson an*' j
Johnston counties, outnumbered |
those from Dunn during October, j
Dunn had 62 patients: Harnett
County 110: Sampson County 69 j
and Johnston Co"ntv 84.
“When you multiply this number
of patients by visitors at a ratio j
of about 16 to 1, you can readily
see that we have a problem when
we try to be civil, courteous and
agreefeble to the host of visitors.”
he concluded.
He asked Dr. R. L. Doffermyre,
a member of the staff, to give
the members of the civic club some
idea of the visitor problem.

duties. Judge Stevens pointed out
that of the three branches of gov
ernment. the legislative and exe
cutive by their very nature, are
far removed from the average cit
• ;
“Few persons, except these who
live in Raleigh, get an opportunity
to be personally acauainted with th”
governor.” he said. “The average
citizen usually knows his rountv
representative in the legislature.
Maybe he knows his senator. But
unless he has occasion to visit the
General Assembly he knows few
legislators. However, it is not so
with the judiciary; the court comes
to you.
“The court reaches out and em- t
braces you and makes you a part i
of the important third branch of
government.” Judge Stevens telri
the grand and trial jurors. “You
are as important a cog as the
iudee of solicitor.” He pointed out
that at least two terms of court
are required by law to be held in
every county in the state every
year. I
In giving instructions about bills
lof indictment, the judge told the
(grand jurors that a true bill can
be found if there is probable cause
!of guilt. "Go no farther than the
i first witness, if that satisfies you,”
the judge said.
However, he cautioned, that if
the grand jurors plan to dismiss
a bill as not a true bill, they must
examine all witnesses on the bill,
iln any capital offense the bill must
j be returned in open court, he ex
| plained.
Judge Stevenson called on the jur-
I ers to see if all magistrates in the
county have filed with a clerk a
report of all cases heard since the
last superior court. All fines and
forfeitures from these minor courts,
he reminded them, go to the school
The jurist also asked jurors to J
check and see if executors, admin- |
istrators and guardians of estates |
and minor children have filed reg
| ular reports with the clerk. He also I
suggested they visit the jail, the
j prison camp, and check with the
! state highway patrol on condition
I of the school buses.
But. he pointed out. a check or
buses is not sufficient for the school
j check-up. He asked them to inves-
I tigate water supplies, drinking wa
| ter. plumbing, heating and fur
j nishings in the schools.
In a resume of cases apt to
1 come before the court, the judge |
! classified them as suits arising out
of assault (from simple assault to i
j murder), burglary, arson, theft and
| highway mishaps. .
Judge Stevens contended. “Rar
! ely do you see an unavoidable high
] way accident. If we are going to I
! put an end to the steadily rising
deaths on the highway, somebody
; has got to get as" tough with the*
violators as they are with the vic
tims they kill or maim daily.”
