Tracing History Of The
Bible At The Last Woman's
Club Meeting
An interesting feature of the
j last meeting of the Woman's
Club was a paper tracing the
| history of the Bible, prepared and
I read by Miss Margaret Parkhill.
The paper follows:
"Since the 4 hundredth birthday
of our English Bible is being
commemorated this year from
October to December, it was
thought appropriate by the lit- j
i erary committee that we give one j
meeting this year to this subject. J
There appeared in England in I
1535, just four hundred years;
ago while William Tyndale wasI
in prison, the first complete prin!
ted English Bible. Before this
time, of course, there had been;
portions of it translated by the
Monks into Latin. We owe them!
a debt of gratitude. Had it not
been for the Monks, the New
' I
Testament might have been lost
Two Monks were especially no- <
ted for their translations, Cadeamon
and Bede. King Alfred translated
the Ten Commandments
land part of Exodus. In 1320 an
I Oxford professor, John Wyclif,

In the early years there was

j English language.
About fifty years after Wyclif's
I death, a German silversmith,
named Johame Gutenburg invenI

' the first printed copy of the Bible

Storm Struck With Full
Force At Miami Monday
Afternoon But Turned
Back To Sea From
That Point
Storm warnings were raised
Friday afternoon on the signal
tower overlooking the Southport
harbor and remained up until
Sunday afternoon when advices
from the United States Weather
Bureau indicated that there was
no further danger along this section
of the Atlantic Coast.
During the daylight hours the
flags flown from the signal tower
were white above red?warning
of $ possible storm from the
northwest. At night the signals
were a white light above red.
The threatened disturbance
struck with all its fury Monday
afternoon at Miami, Florida. Four
were reported dead, several were
missing and property damage
probably will amount to more
than a million dollars.
The storm pursued a freakish
course. It moved inward in the
region of Fort Lauderdale and
Miami, then proceeded almost directly
across the Gulf of Mexico,
in the region between Everglades
and Cape Sable.
Rough weather outside handicapped
fishing and shrimping
vessels during the week-end and
.?o lar thiw week. Most of them
remained at the dock. An unusually
large number of yachts also
remained here in the safety of
the Southport harbor.
Oyster Project
Making Progress
Captain Leonard Nelson, In
Charge Of This Work In
North Carolina, Visitor
In SouthDort Tuesdav Of
This Week
Captain Leonard Nelson, who
is in charge of the oyster planting
projects for North Carolina,
was a Southport visitor Tuesday
and, together with Pete Reynolds
and Henry Williams, supervisor
of this work in Brunswick county,
inspected the work that is
being carried on in this section.
Ninety-four Brunswick county
men are now engaged in planting
oysters with the object of improving
the size and flavor of the
specimens to be found in this
section. Captain Nelson appeared
to be well pleased with the progress
being made.
Mr. Williams said that he discussed
with Captain Nelson the
matter of having the territory
lying west of the Shallotte river
made available for this work.
These waters have been condemned
but Captain Nelson told
local officials that he was going
to seek to have the ban removed.
