Following is a portion of a letter from Mr. Sasser, in which he gives the names and address of several of these registrars: "The people whose names appear below have the necessary registration forms and are ready to proceed with the registration. I would like to ask the people who read this to advise any old person they know to examine this i list and select the person nearest to them and then go to the home of that person where his name and the other information desired may be placed in the proper form. "In next week's paper I will i advise the people in North West township and Town Creek township to whom they may go for j registration. "People in Smithville township | who live nearer Southport than , [they do Supply or Bolivia may call at the office of tv.e 'superintendent of welfare any time after Monday, December 1st. Following is a list of registrars: J. B. Atkinson, Bolivia. Carl Ward, Bolivia. Furney W. Miiiigan, snanoiie. Mrs. M. E. Gore, Ash. Isaac Phelps, Ash. Robert Miiiigan, Justice of the Peace, Ash. J. Dorsey Babson, Freeland. David Ross, Freeland. Haywood Clemmons, Supply. Dennis Hewett, Supply. "I would like to repeat what I said in my last communication in this connection: This registration is a study of the old age situation in this county. Signing one ; of the forms mentioned above does not commit the government, either federal, state or county, to anything. We hope that an old age pension will be possible for everybody who is eligible for it sometime, but this study which iwe are making now is only an investigation, and an effort the I government is making to find out just who is eligible and how many old people there are in the ! county who ought to be helped in this fashion." Man Injured In Sunday Shooting 1 Conley Milliken Shot Sunday Night By Foy Smith; Conflicting Reports Of The Shooting Given On Monday I J Conley Milliken, white man of the Ash community in this counj.ty, is a patient in the Brunswick v county hospital where he is suf- fering from gun shot wounds in his left shoulder, said to have been inflicted Sunday night by Foy Smith, a neighbor. According to reports of the shooting received Monday morning, both men had apparently been drinking and engaged in an argument during the afternoon. The shooting occurred at about 8 o'clock in the home of Smith's father. Another report is that the shooting was purely accidental and happened when the two men were examining a gun which they planned to use Monday to go deer hunting. Up until Monday night, no warrant had been sworn out. SCHOOL VISITORS Miss Annie Mae Wood side and Mr. C. L. Stevens were visitors at Waccamaw high school last Friday in the interest of the Red Cross work. STAT 4 Good Newsp Southport, N.

Most Of The News All The Time $1.50 PER YEAR P.-T.A Speaker Outlines Duties Of The Parents >ays That Room Representatives Have Important Part In Promoting Better Feeling Between The Parents And Teachers MRS. A. J. FLOWERS SPOKE THURSDAY Field Worker For State P.-T. A. Spent Last Week In Brunswick County And Spoke At Several Local Meetings Mrs. A. J. Flowers, field worker for the State Parent-Teachers Association, spent last week in Brunswick county where she spoke at local meetings In each of the consolidated schools. On Thursday Mrs. Flowers visited the Southport school and spoke at a call meeting of the local Parent-Teachers Association. In her talk, she stressed the important role which grade representatives play in bringing about a better understanding between the teachers and parents of the school children. Parents should be urged to visit the school, she said, so that they may see the problems which the teacher must face. In this way, she added, parents will become more interested in neiping overcome these handicaps. An important duty of the Parent-Teacher Association, according to Mrs. Flowers, is to see that every parent who has a child in school become an active Interested worker for the association. Each time a new member attends a meeting, she should be greeted and made to feel welcome. Each member should be appointed a member to some committee, Mrs. Flowers said, because a busy worker is a valuable member of the association. The biggest need for co-operation lies in the fact that each parent knows things about her child that the teacher does not know, and vice versa. By working together, each has an opportunity to profit by the experience of the other. * Principal Host To His Faculty Members Of The Shallotte Faculty, Three Prominent Educational Workers and Other Visitors Attend Oyster Roast Principal Henry C.
