Sunday. -Bishop H. M. DuBose, of
Winston-Salem, assisted by the pas-
tor, Rev. W. H. Willis, was in charge
of the exercises. The exercises were
made brief on account of the ex
treme cold which prevailed. However;
the weather did not prevent a large
congregation taking part in the cere
monies. ' The choir sang two verses of a
hymni at the new building, and pas
sages from the Bible, and the book of
discipline were read by the bishop.
Mr. Willis announced the items to be
placed in the metal box which will oc
cupy the center of the cornerstone.
The following documents were placed
in the container: A Bible, hymnal,
book of discipline, an historical sketch
of the Asheboro Methodist Episcopal
church, the organization and member
ship list of 534 persons, names of
those who went to the World War
from the church, a history of the Wo
man's Missionary Society, the name
of the architect of the building, Har
ry Barton, of Greensboro, and copies
of the North Carolina; Christian Ad
vocate, anciiThe Asheboro Courier,
and Randolph Tribune. "The stone

Much interest is being taken by tha
people in , the counties traversed by
state highway No. 75. is a 'meeting
which, will be bald in Lexington next
Tuesday, December 30th, in an effort
to launch a movement for hard sur
facing this important route.- At this -meeting
it is planned to perfect an
organisation of leading men in . the '
ten counties through which No. 75 '
runs to the matter of further improv
ing tha route up srith the . highway '
commission. -It, i argued on behalf "
of this important . t highway that ; it '.
opens ap the counties la' the heart of
Piedmont North Carolina and furnish-''
es an ideal Central Highway.-.
The hard surfacing '? of the. route
along its entire length would especial-,'
ly benefit Chatham, Randolph, David-
son and Davie counties. u It s would ' "
parallel no railroad m these eountiea''
and would open up for expansion
wide territory in these eountiea.' It
would be a means of furnishing not
omy reuei tor tranic congestion ntm
the highway front Salisbury to' Dur- -ham,
but also a good route for a'ter
ritory in tha counties mentioned which a
are more or less isolated vfrora ' the '
main routes. Especially would 'tha
hard surfacing of the highway benefit
Randolph' and Davidson counties. 1
would affoKLa concrete highwayta an
east and west direction across theae
counties arid pass at right angles to '
the other hard surface highways, in
these counties. '
It Is urged by those most interested ,,
in the project that as many as possi
ble of the people' of the county at- '
tend the Lexington meeting and lend '
their influence to the w launching ,of
this movement. ' v '
