Registrars To
Aid In Signing
Aged Citizens
Number Of Citizens Have
Consented To Serve As
Registrars In Order To
Make Matters Easy For
This Is Only Preliminary,
According To Frank Sasser,
Superintendent Of
Public Welfare, But
Information Is Important
A number of residents of
Brunswick county have agreed to
serve as registrars in conducting
a survey to determine the number
of elderly people who are eligible
for an old age pension, according
to Frank Sasser, superintendent
of public welfare. 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
"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
"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."

Every fall hundreds of yachts
belonging to wealthy residents
of northern cities stop
here on their way to Florida
tor the winter. Many of these
braft make the trip down
this far through the inland
waterway. They go outside
here down to Georgetown,
then back inland. When the
weather outside is unusually
rough, the boats tie up here
Tor several days.
Last spring the Vanderbilt
yacht, Alva, spent a day In
the local harbor. So far this
season there has been no caller
here to rival the splendor
of that floating palace.

"This week with its great an-1 j

tion of the bountiful blessings of!]

! calls for more than just the per- ,
Jsonal acceptance of these com- ,

less fortunate neighbors. |(
"This Thanksgiving season ap- i,
jpeal is made with the hope that (

I Wnmp members of the local i
Red Cross Chapter. While everyI
thing just now has the appear-1
Jance of good cheer; while hun-,

viate. |i
"Since the general purpose of <

among its services are public

'there are the organized volunteer
i services, which include the production
of garments for families

into Braille of books and
magazines for the blind; canteen o
and hospital service. ^
"Therefore, let this business of: F
being part of this great Red 11
Cross association be made a mat- 1
ter of deep concern, so much so o
that every one shall join. By so h
doing make this Thanksgiving n
day one of a personal interest h

Voodrow Harvell Wounded
Sunday Night During A
Shooting Scrape In Which <
His Uncle Was Slain
Woodrow Harvell was wounded
n the side Sunday night when
i pistol bullet, intended for his
incle, French Lewis, struck him. ]
-?wis died a short time later in
i Wilmington hospital where he
vas taken after being shot by ]
Mex Buie.
The shooting took place at the
jewis filling station between Wilnington
and Carolina Beach and
followed some earlier trouble be;ween
the two men. Buie is reported
to have been shooting at
lis wife, a step-daughter of
Lewis, when the latter grappled ,
vflh him for the pistol.
Following is the story of the
shooting as told a representative
?f The Pilot early Monday morning
by young Harvell:
"The first time he came out
,vas about 8 o'clock," he said,
speaking of Lewis. "He came out
md showed up at the filling j
3tation. He went on up to the
louse with Jack Core ... he
went to the house and went in
md talked to Mrs. Lewis and
jot to sassin' her. She grabbed
jp her baby and went and told
Lewis. Buie came in by the back (
loor. Lewis ordered him out . . . ,
le pushed him out. They (Buie) j,
md Core) got in the car andi;
eft. They said they were going
h the police station. I,
"After they left someone called j
die station several times, but ,
hey wouldn't answer the phone
because they thought it was him',
md they didn't want to talk toj ]
lim. I
"About 11 o'clock he came back i.
Jown and came in the back door, i
\s he walked in he pulled a gun
>ut and told them not to move.
3uie's wife ran out the front door
with him behind her and they
vent around the filling station.
[ ran out behind them. I tried
x> get close to him but not too
;lose because he had a gun. Buie
vent in the back door behind;
lis wife. As he did Lewis got j
jut of bed and walked in the ]
lall, and Buie ran right into his
arms. Buie shot him. I came up
closer at the back door and as I
iid a bullet struck me. I started
turning around and saw Lewis
falling. I went out the front door
and he (Buie) went out the back
joor. I started to call the police
and as I did he came up and
said, 'What you up to? Don't,
you do anything.' All that time i
tie had his gun in my face."
The last thing he saw of Buie,
tie said, was when he ran across
the road.
Harvell, who is Mrs. Lewis'
nephew, said he had gone there
to visit and was waiting to get a
way home at the time of the

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. *
