Masons To
Hall Day
Masons of the 19th District
will observe Prince Hall Day
Sunday, September 12, 3 p.m.,
at Mt. Camel Baptist Church,
412 Campus Street.
Prince Hall was a native of
Barbados, West Indies. He
was born September 12, 1748.
At the age of 17, he worked
his passage on a ship to
Boston, Mass. He got a job as
a leather worker, a business
his father knew.
Eight years later, he bought
property in Boston, and was
allowed to vote. He also be
came a minister in the Metho
dist Church with a pastorate in
Cambridge, Mass.
Prince Hall was the first
freemason of color of whom
there is a record, said a
statement from local masons.
He and 14 other free Negroes
of Boston were made Master
Masons in an Army Lodge
attached to an English regi
ment stationed in Boston.
"Masons throughout the
land will be observing Prince
Hall Day in tribute to the
memory of this eminent lead
er," said the statement. It said
the "oppressed and disinheri
ted should take inspiration
from the life and works of this
manificent exponent of human
freedom and dedicate their
lives to the unfinished task
which lies before us."

Thursday, September a, 1976-THK CHARLOTTE Ft
Lee Gains Momentum As Lt. Governor's Race Heats f I
Dt> UnuU U ** C- " * ·
Post Executive Editor
The normally lack-luster
Democratic Party nomination
for the office of lieutenant
governor has taken on in
creasing significance and in
terest this year. This has
occured because a black can
didate, Howard Lee, is the
front runner and is gaining
greater support. The increas
ed support has come as a
result of action taken by his
September 14 primary runoff
opponent. Jimmy Green.
Official returns indicate
that Lee, a former three-time
mayor of Chapel Hill, received
27.61 percent of the vote and
Green, former speaker of the
N.C. House, received 26-79
percent in a field of eight
candidates. Furthermore,
since Green officially called
for a runoff against Lee, he
has made a few decisions that
have raised serious questions
in the minds of many of his
supporters, some of whom
have now given their endorse
ments to Lee.
Specifically, Green declined
a public debate with Lee. He
reportedly said he did not "see
anything that could be ac
complished by debating" his
runoff opponent. However,
since the lieutenant gover
nor's post has recently be
came a full-time job at a
salary of $30,000 a year, many
.a aie uuciesiea in Know
ing how these candidates
would view their role in the
state's second highest office
beyond that of presiding over
the senate.
Furthermore, many voters
want to know what kind of
precedent these candidates
would establish for future lieu
tenant governors. Mr. Green's
initial refusal to debate the
issue has caused some to
withdraw their support from
his candidacy.
In another decision, Green
admittedly committed himself
fô ei vp John Jordan a political
job in exchange lor his en
dorsement. Jordan finished
third in the August 17 primary
behind Lee and Green. Since
such job offers are illegal,
Green violated the law This
too has caused a negative
voter reaction to Green's can
didacy.
At a Charlotte news confer
ence last week, Lee said that
his campaign appeared to be
gaining momentum with the
help of a number of new
endorsements. Among these
was an endorsement from
state Senator Ralph Scott,
uncle of former Governor Bob
Spftft Ralnh · ·
term Senator who supported
John Jordan in the August 17
primary. He criticized Jor
dan's endorsement of Green
and said, "It looks to me like
he (Jordan) has sold his vote
to the highest bidder."
In another development
Lee denied allegations that he
too had offered Jordan a politi
cal appointment in exchange
for an endorsement
Lee's momentum was also
aided by an endorsement from
the N.C. Political Action Com
mittee for Education (PACEi.
the state's largest educational
lobby. PACE had formerly
endorsed Jimmy Green.
Herbert Hyde, the fourth
ranking vote-getter and candi
date in the race for lieutenant
governor and a highly respect
ed member of the N.C House
has also endorsed Mr Lee
In addition, Howard Lee has
received the endorsement of
The Charlotte Observer, the
state's largest newspaper
In a recent editorial the
Observer said, "Mr. Lee is a
progressive who wants to see
North Carolina move against
a number of social and econo
mic problems Mr Green is a
stand-patter who is content
with the status quo "
The editorial said further.
"We believe Mr Lee would
work harmoniously with Jim
Hunt, the Democratic nomi
nee for governor, if both are
elected...We cannot imagine
_ 1
Mr Lireen in a similarly con
structive role A.s House
.speaker, he o/len clashed
needlessly with Mr Hunt

Pull The 7th Lever For ERNIE PHIPPS
Chamber To Sponsor Writing Semin«r
Thirty percent of the ave
rage business letter consists of
needless words. One of every
twenty letters is written to
correct an error or omission in
previous correspondence.
Three letters out of four con
tain trite, "horse-and-buggy"
phrases that waste the read
er's time and kill his interest.
These are a few of the
findings of W.H. Butterfield,
one of the nation's leading
authorities on letter writing,
who will conduct a Business
Letter Clinic in Charlotte on
Thursday, September 23.
Sponsored by the Charlotte
Chamber of Commerce, the
clinic will be held from 1:30 to
5:00 p.m. in the Chamber of
Commerce Action Center.
Author of sixteen books and
some 200 magazine articles on
business correspondence, But
terfield has conducted letter
writing programs for business
and professional groups in
almost 400 cities. In many
communities, his clinics have
been held five and six times.
"How you say it is just as
important as what you say in
your business letters," says
Butterfield. "Sometimes the
reader is influenced even
more by the tone of a letter
than by its contents. A friendly
human tone wins his coopera
tion and good will. A blunt tone
irritates him. A mechanical
tone bores him."
