Halstead Holden Writes To
Encourage Development
Of Interest In Sports
And Sportsmanship In
County
Halstead Holden, son of Dr.
and Mrs. R. H. Holden of Shal
lotte, and student at University
of North Carolina, is still keenly
interested in high school sports in
Brunswick county.
His own high school days were
spent in Durham, where the fam
ily formerly resided. Keeping up
with things through this paper
'while he is a student, he wrote
this week, relative to sports. His
letter is reproduced in full:
"After reading a paragraph
from Mr. Keziah's column in last
week's State Port Pilot, I am
fully convinced that the paper
and Brunswick county people are
advocates of clean sports an
sportsmanship. This is a good
thing because clean sportsmanship
builds character and promotes a
i high standard of morals. These
I are the things that every boy
[and girl needs, not only now but
; in the future.
I "I would like to see the high
schools in Brunswick county ex
pand their athletic program.
Atheletic programs should not
be limited to basketball and foot
ball alone. They should include
other sports, such as football,

track, tennis and swimming-. A
combination of sports is necessary;
for a well rounded program. High,
schools which have this type of
program benefit very much, be
cause they receive more publicity,
produce better athlets, and in
many instances gain financially.
"These programs might seem a
little far fetched, but in the long|
run the advantages gained from
such a well rounded program
should certainly outweigh any
cSmplication or problem which
might arise.
"The lack of funds should not
be a prime hindrance. There are
many ways in which funds can
be obtained. Drives, individual
contributions and effort. Efforts
by social organizations and clubs
are good examples. Moreover the
local newspaper is an excellent
tool for stirring up interest and
possible financial security.
"All in all, it Is a great idea,
and maybe some day it won't be
just a possible proposal, but a
reality.
"R. Halstead Holden."

March Celebrated As
Wallpaper Month
New York?The month of
March has been officially desig
nated as National Wallpaper ora
nated as National Wallpaper
Month. It will be dedicated to
the improvement of public taste
and the beautifying of American
homes.
The recorded history of wall
paper is a long one; it dates back
more than four centuries. At
first, wall paper was made by a
cumbersome hand process and
thus was excessively expensive, j
and its use was limited to the j
wealthy. In later years, however, \
the art spread, designs improved,
and the cost naturally decreased
as wall pajvar techniques im
proved.
Within the past twenty years
American technical ingenuity has
developed washable wall paper,
printed In lightfast colors. Today,
wall paper is practical as well as
beautiful and is available in such
wide varieties that' there is a
wall paper to fit every color
scheme, every taste, and every
model of living.
Improvement of public taste in
decorating is a long-term contin
uing process. During National
Wallpaper Month, all branches of
the industry are making a con
certed effort to emphasize their
year-round program of helping
American homemakers to beauti
fy their home.

The 16-mlle journey was
made with such smoothness that

Twelve 15-minute recordings
