JRovin' Reporter (Continued from page one) ton, principal at Bolivia, resign ed this spring with the intention of farming. He is not leaving Brunswick, however. He has a place near Bolivia nact is doing j some farming this year. It is understood that thus far no suc cessor to Mr. Bruton has been secured for the Bolivia school. Brunswick, the big diamond back rattlesnake captured in this county two years ago and sent to the State Museum, is doing well and has always been in fine condition. Few diamond backs live in captavity, as they seem to pre-J fer starving themselves to death. Norman . McCulloch, of Raleigh, a member of the Bird Club, tells us that he saw Brunswick kill and eat a large rat last Wednes day. Representative-elect Thomas E. Cooper of New Hanover county stated this week that he intends using every effort to interest the State Highway Commission in building another bridge across the Cape Fear river at its narrowest I point bolow Carolina Beach. That would be somewhere in the | location of the old Menhaden Products company plant, about seven miles above Southport. Despite serious damage to to bacco on a number of farms in lower Shallotte and Waccamaw townships, the general outlook of the Brunswick county field crops [ seems especially good. Through jout nearly all of the county the j rains that fell helped instead of 'hurt the tobasso crop. This ap plies equally well to other crops. A knock down of reports of con ditions throughout the county would place everything as look ling good. Stories sometimes keep going round and round. Two years ago we released a story about Ma-j kotoka Lake and its fishing. The story was published generally' and brought many inquiries. Two weeks ago t?ie same story was picked up again and published in | Outdoors. Since then we have been wearing our fingers out answering inquiries. Pictures of Southport's Model T 1922 fire truck and a story about it will shortly appear In the Ford News, publication of the Ford Motor company. At least that is our supposition as we had to sign a release on the picture and story we wrote about the old truck last week. Congratulations to Carl Goerch, North Carolina's most valuable known-your-own-state-man. Last week he got out the 15th an niversary edition of The State Magazine and it was a gem of purest ray among special edi tions. Incidently, Carl published his own picture in this issue, for the first time. While he looks fine when viewed face to face, we looked on his printed mug and felt reconciled to the fact that he prints our picture ? and picks on us every chance he gets. We know now he was only having a build-up against the time when he had to print his own picture. With school out, a lot of the younger Southport boys are turn ing to the waterfront for conflict with the mullet sharks and stin garees. This week Albert Dosher and Bertram Burris, Jr., report ed to us the catching of a 100 pound stingaree. They said they AMUZU THEATRE SOUTHPORT, N. C. Admission?9c awl 25c Two Shows Nightly?

Things like this always make a newspaper man feel warm about the heart towards the writ ers: "Always enjoy leading your interesting weekly. In it I find a great deal that makes me feel highly of Brunswick coiinty and Southport." The writer was Dr. B. W. Wells, dean of the de partment of botany, at State Col lege in Raleigh. "We had a big" crowd at the beach Saturday night and an even larger one Sunday. All the folks over here are very much pleased at the outlook for this year and we are all working to gether to make this a year of real development at Long Beach." This was from Gene Tomlinson, who called around to see us Monday to express his apprecia tion of what he said was fine advertising and fine publicity that he has been receiving in this, paper. Shallotte Point and Holden Beach both report fine crowds this past week end and all through the week. The fish are now beginning to bite real good and both places are rapidly be ing discovered as wonderful spots where vacations may be spent and fishermen may fish. At both Holden Bench and Shallotte Point many new homes are under construction. Meeting up with A. D. What ley, who was the one-man booster for Howell's Point until a lot of other people found out what a delightful little place it was. we found him tickled pink over the fact that the state highway com mission is constructing a road for the folks down there. To be sure, it is only a dirt road now. but it goes to a mighty fine inside fishing point and a lot of people are using it. Bob Bryson, of Greensboro and Long Beach, has purchased him self an army duck and stationed it at Long Beach. Whenever the fancy seizes him he drives out j in the ocean to go fishing wher ever he pleases. When he gets back from such a trip he does not have to worry about getting his craft tied up securely. He just drives it up to the house and parks it like his neighbors park their cars. A few years ago Herman WU letts left Brunswick county and went to Burlington where he 'has evidently shown himself to be a fine and dependable fellow. He is one of the foremen in the hosiery mill of Coy C. McCuiston. who owns a home at Caswell Beach and whose family is now spending the summer here. The other day Mr. McCuiston dropped around to this office and sub scribed for the paper for Herm an. Incidently, as Mr. McCuiston goes and comes between his beach home and his hosiery mill in Burlington, he asked us what size socks we wore. We had not seen our good friend Dawson Jones for around j two months. We had supposed he was sticking around his home at Woodburn and amusing himself by keeping up with his fishing, but even the best guessers some times guess wrong. Dawson show ed up here at the office Monday, and when we asked him how the 1 i fishing had been he ruefully ex plained that he had not been fish-) ing, that he had been ill in his bed for most of the past two months. If he had been telling us something about fishing we cer tainly would not have believed him. As things irt much l-egret to say ^ Wiling the truth.

How Banks Speed Up A man working alone with a forked stick or a hoe can turn up a few rows of earth for seeding. A man with a horse and a steel plough can do a hundred times as much work; while a man with a tractor and a g=r.g plough can turn up a thousand times as much land. In the same way a bank enables a com. munity to make faster and more produc tive use of its circulating dollars. A bank, therefore, is a powerful piece of modem financial machinery which directly con tributes to the welfare and progress of the people it serves.
