thrift must be installed into o n peo

have a greater medium than oir own
local building and loan associations
in their own respective comm imties.
The shares purchased in buildi lg anil
loan associations are tax-free and are

1 ITTLE EULA PEARL
L HALES PASSES AWAY
A very sad death occurred Thurs
day Nov. 5, when the Death Angel en
tered the home ot Mr. aim Mrs. Fred
P Hale:*, and laid bis icy hand on
their little daughter, Eula Pearl.
Eula Pearl was eleven years old,
and she had been a sufferer of the
Brights disease for some time, but
pneumonia caused her almost sudden
death which made it all the harder
for h' r friends and relatives to bear.
Many have been tne token and ex
pressions of sympathy tendered the
grief stricken parents by numerous
, kind friends, but the sweevesi. com
fort to them is the blessed thought
that their daughter has been trans
planted from the sorrows of earth,
to the joys of Heaven, and while sne
cannot come to them they can go to
her, if faithful and time to the lath
er’s teaching*-. She leaves a taturi,
mother, two sisters and two broth *! ■,
to mourn her death. The funeral ser
vices were conducted at Watkins
Chapel. The interment was in the
church cemetery.—A COUSIN

boon entertained the Senior Class and
High School Faculty to a Hallowe’en
party Thursday night, Oct. 29 at the
home of Miss Davis.
Upon their arrival the guests were
met by a ghost who silently led the !
way to the back yard where there j
was a huge bon-fire. Each one was
blindfolded and asked to take some
article from a table. This article
signified their fu.ure occupation.
After this Hallowe’en games were
played around the bon-fire. Then
they were led up mountains and down
streams by the ghost. Miss W ilia
Horton won the prize for the best
costume, after which fortunes were
told. Then they were led into the
witch’s den where many gruesome
sights met their eyes and amid howls
and shrieks of fear parts of John!
Brown’s dead body were passed i
Apples, pop corn, and roasted
marshmallows were served. ..As the
guests departed, the hostesses gave
them each a good-night (candy) kiss.
All the Seniors’ of the class of
1926 and a few of the members of
the High School Faculty were pres

No Mail Delivery
On Christmas Day
Washington, Nov. B.—An advance
Christmas present for mail carriers
and most other postal employes comes
from Postmaster General New today
in the form of an announcement that
no delivery of ordinary mail would be
made Christmas day.
From midnight, December 24, to
midnight, December 25, all postal op- |
erations will be suspended except the:
maintenance of specail delivery and
the “relaying” of the mails so that
they will .be ready when normal de- 1
livery is resumed. , •
“It is rtialized that this experi
ment is a great undertaking” said .M r.
I New, “but it is believed that it is in
line with the sentiments of the"public
and if this can be done without tool
I grea4 loss of service. !
“It is confidently hoped that it will
; succeed and that our large force ol
; workers in the field may for the first
time have the benefit of a real hoh
i day.” .
To make possible the Christmas
| shut-down, the “mail early” campaign
has been launched already with re
newed vigor. Postmasters have been
directed to solicit the co-operation of
newspapers, chambers fti Commerce,

Cole Damage Suit
May Wait a Year
Uuless there is a special term of
civil court called for the trial of the
Cole d image case, the folks who are
excited about will have to calm a
year, according to Clerk “Trucy” Roy
ster, of Raleigh.
Mr. Royster says there are 100
or more civil cases on the local cal
endar and they will have to go off
before the Cole case can come on.
The fact that §150.000 is at stake
will not necessarily hurry the is
sue. Mr. Cole is not gaing to rush
things and Mr. Ormond cannot.
It is not likely that special le«m
will be called. Governor McLean hur
ried the criminal case and had a
judge working on it within 45 days.
That issue was settled with a judg
ment of not guilty. But the finding
of the Union jury turns out not to
have been very generally popular.
A wait of one year will take a world
of popular interest away. It should
work to the advantage of Mr. Cole
who got off lightly at the other hear
ing and then ran into a very savage
The defendant is said to be in Ar
kansas, but his friends do not believe
the recurring rumor that he is going

From each membership only fifty
cents goes to National Headquarters
of the Rod Cross to carry on its nati

rest of the money remains in the trea

the work in the community. There

The paving plans for Smithfield
upon which the City Fathers have;
been working during the past few j
months begin to take more definite i
shape, and the prospect now is that!
work will begin in early spring. Ihe |
! finance committee composed of Mr. j
' R. P. Holding, and J. D. Underwood,!
i recommended to the town board at
' its regular session Tuesday night, the
issuing of a 8100.000 worth of bonds
to take care of the paving program.
Their recommendation was approved
The bonds will be serial bonds, and
will be retired with funds collected
from property owners along the
streets to he paved together with one
third put up by the town itself. In
creased taxation for this purpose is
not anticipated. Certainly this year
nor next year will extra taxation be
necessary, and it is thought the
fund will have augmented by that
time sufficiently to take care of the
interest and retirement.
A number of our citizens are in
trested in seeing the paving get under
way, and will be gratified to learn

GET IN AT THE START AND STAY TO THE
This is to be a memorable event. It is to be a Friend-Making
In addition to the big automobile and the purses, the Zebulon Re
cord is making i( possible for every man, woman, boy and girl who
takes part in this distribution to be a prize winner. “Everybody
Wins” is the slogan. And everybody does win.
That everyone participating in this election may know in advance
that “Everybody Wins” Tho Zebulon Record has set aside a sum of
money to be paid in commissions. This is over and above the capital
To every reader who participates and who does not win the big
automobile or one of the big prizes, The Zebulon Record will pay a
cash commission of twenty per cent on all subscriptions turned in
during the event. That means The Zebulon Record readers who ac
tively participate are guaranteed at the very least o ndollar of very
five dollars received for subscriptions during the election.
Did you ever hear of anything more fair? No, and no one else
Today the Zebulon Record inaugurates the most stupendous “Every
body Wins Something” one automobile-and-goid gift distribution.
Clifts totalling over $2,000.00 including one big, handsome, speedy
automobile, Chrysler Touring Car, value $1100.20 and three great
bags of gold and silver (containing as high as §200) are to be dis
tributed among the men and worae ,nobys and girls of Zebulon and
Now, why docs The Zebulon Re
cord pig up 52.000 in gifts? Why!
does The Record guarantee every
reader who is active in this election
va! lable prizi ; for his or her efforts?
There arc two reasons:
First, this is «. fri nd-mvl.ing elec
tion. Second, only by conducting a
fair and liberal election with gifts of
value to everyone who participates,
will it be possible for the Record to j
accomplish its aim.
And what is The Zebulon Record’s j
aim? How can the Zebulon Record!
afford to give away absolutely free, I
without one cent of expense to the
contestants, $2,000 ?
In the election the Zebulon Record
hopes to secure more subscriptions—
to enlarge an already large list. To
secure renewals. To make a good
paper we naturally need circulation.
If) this election The Record hopes to
add to its great family of friends.
This will be accomplished not only
by the addition of new subscribers,
hy the renewal of subscriptions, but
by the manner in which this election
is conducted. Every render who takes
part in this election will, when it is
over, be a living adverticcment for
The Zebulon Record. That is the
Os course this election will not pay
the Record immediately in dollars and
cents. It would be unreasonable to
expect that. Then why. you may a k.
do you put up so much money when
you know in advance that you can
not get it back from the subscriptions
received? And tl r* answer.
There are things more valuable to!

than you pay.
However, if by the spending of.

ers will use its columns at a higher \
rate, to reach a greater number of;
people then, in the years to come, th:..
$2,000 will be returned time and

Then too, in order to insure an
equitable distribution, two districts
have boon made, w th special gifts
set ".side for each district.
District No. 1 is all of Hint, terri
tory ii.flic city limits of Zebulon.
District No. 2 is all of that territory
lying outside of the city limits of
Zebulon. Then the next highest can
didate will be awarded a s2<'o prize.
Then to be more liberal and to insure
equitable distribution of two purses—
of $75 —are set aside to be awarded
in the two districts. This will he a
purse of 575 for each district. This
assures that participants living far
thest from the Record office will re
ceive gifts of automobile and gold and
silver a ; large as those living in Zeb

or residence on even terms.
