For the past two or three weeks,

They’re not selling them; they’re

Among Our Readers
We are grateful to a number of,
cur readers for their words of appreci
ation ot our first effort at running a
a newspaper. We are conscious of the
iack of both experience and ability,
and hope we may have the forbearing
sympathy of our readers and adver
tisers till our knowledge and efforts
meet the demands.
We shall do our best with what we
have. But we must have two things
from you to succeed or even exist:
your subscription and some advertis
ing. Either of these alone will not
Mr. Walter Bunn came in Wednes
day to tell us how he likes the Rec
ord. He says he has been a subscrib
er from the beginning, and doesn’t
see how he can do without the paper.
He asked if it was true that we would
send the Record on till fall if a fel
low could not pay up now.
Yes, that is just what we said. If
you appreciate the Record enough to
j want it. and are not able to pay $1.50
now, then drop us a line and say so,
and your credit will be good till fall.
As stated in last week’s Record if you
want the paper, send us your name,
and we will send you the Record for
nine months. Then you pay us one
dollar in the fall.
Many of us have friends and rela
[ fives living in other towns, or away
in school. What better thing could
you do than send them the home
town news through the Record? A
number of our subscribers are doing
so. why not you ?
Why don’t some one at Wakelon get
busy and send us a batch of real
school news each week ? This will be a
splendid way to keep the school before
the patrons. Each week we have a
column or two from Bunn. We shall
be glad to print anything of general
interest from Wakelon, even occa

OVERALLS vs. HARD TIMES

t' other day to give it a good general
house-cleaning, when some one asked:

“Oh. this? Why, I’ve got Hard Times
under my arm.”
And that set me to thinking. If
you don’t have a strangle hold on old
man Hard Times, you had better
look out, or he'll get you. Reach out,
grab him, throttle him, choke him
senseless, aiif] leave him behind. You,
can do it. He is an indolent old
wretch. Just keep going along with
that old discourager dogging your
heels while you grumble and complain,
and you won’t even see Miss Pros-j
perity. much less embrace her. Drop,|
that gloom, grab that grin, fight like|
“sin”, and you will win. j

After all the clouds and rains of

“Ah—oh! See the sun! Today’s the
day we’d better send out a bird.”
Yet who has forgotten those long,
clear, hot, dry days of not so long
ago, when we sighed for even a little
cloud and a light shower. The child

Mrs. Roy W ilder
Addresses P.-T. A
At the monthly meeting of the
W akelon P.-T. A. on Tuesday eve
ning( Mrs. Roy Wilder, o Spring
H>>pe, was the speaker. Mrs. Wilder is
pi eminent in club work, and is in
great demand as a speaker. She had
been announced to speak on “The
Children’s Charter” but said she
would discuss instead “Our P.-T. A.
Platform.” She said the P.-T. A. be
jgan ago as a welfare work.
Soon mothers were brought in and
finally fathers, too. Out of this be
ginning has grown a great national
organization of parents and teachers
giving its interest to the child’s wel
, fare and training along alt lines. In
| North Carolina, the organization has
j 25,000 members.
j Among the seven principals of the
j P.-T. A. platform Mrs. Wilder empha
(sized health, safety and a worthy
home fellowship. The training for
good citizenship is the responsibility
of the home. Thrift should be em
phasized. We have, said she, forgot
the most important thing about
making money -making it in the right
way. If we must economize, let’s not
take it out of our children. She em
phasized the wise use of means, ma
terials and good reading.
On the whole the address was well
; received, and gave emphasis to very
pertinent matters relating to child
problems and parent responsibilities.

James Pace, a colored man, was
promenading and parading 'through

when he absent-mindedly appropriat

the secret of the' would-be light finger
ed artist, and as a result, James
awaits trial in the* Wake* county jail at
the next term of the Zebulon Record

count with the majesty of the law.
