I have not for a long time enjoyed
books so much.
Please don’t think I mean that
these biographies picture the mis
sionaries as perfect beings. Far
from it; and therein lies their
charm, aside from the fact that
they are splendidly written. An
drew and Carie were dissimilar in
many ways but are not most
married couples? And it is wonder
ful to see how God can use faulty
humans to help the world toward
Divine perfection. I prefer to read
of a few mistakes and failures, if

You needn’t fear that in these
books sex will often “rear its ugly
head”. When it appears it is treat
ed as an episode, not an epoch.
And if, like one reviewer, you feel
that the daughter regarded her
father with a shade less respect
than is considered orthodox, re
member that she wrote as a mature
woman picturing an extraordinary
character rather than as a daugh
ter idealizing a parent. It must
be confessed, however, that her
childish memories helped color the
canvas. At any rate, read thesj
books, if you have the chance.

ZEBULON, NORTH CA ROLINA, FRIDAY, JANUARY EIGHTH, 1937
It is said that most of the
successful business men of Ral
eigh were born elsewhere and
went to Raleigh as young men.
This is true of many communi
ties. but we believe Zebulon is
an exception. Most of the busi
ness of this town is carried n
by native born men may of them
young men. It speaks well of
any town to know that its ap
peal is so great that the young
men see a future for the place
and a successful career in its
business opportunities for them
selves. Such a man is our pub
lic character this week.
Name: Willis Milton Strick
Bom near Wakefield, April
Domestic status: Married Miss
Mamie W. Temple. May 21, 1911.
Mrs. Strickland was also reared
in the Zebulon community. They
have two children, Willis W. and
Sallie Modena, both grown.
Church affiliation: Baptist.
Business: General Contract
ing. Mr. Strickland began the
carpenter trade when 18 years
old. He and his twin brother,
Clarence, have been in the con
tracting business for a number
of years and have built a num
ber of school buildings over the
Eastern section of this state.
Most of the local school build
ings were constructed by them
as well as a number of residen

Leroy Jenkins made an assault
on some one with a deadly weapon
and the court said go to the
roads for three months or pay a
fine of SSO and cos's. He paid the
costs. Judge Rhodes also thought
it wise to put a string to his penal
ty hy telling Leroy he must be good
for fwo years or else.
Zeb High’s wife said he had not
furnished her enough food nor any
clothes and demanded before the
court that he do it. But the court
decided that Zeb had done enough
tc get by and let him off.
Buster Foster seems to have had
a liking for Bennie Mann’s daugh
ter, but Bennie had no love for him,
so ordered him to stay away from
Bennie’s home except when he was
there. Bennie came home one day,
Duster was there and made a hasty
exit through a window. Bennie
took the matter to court, but that
seat of legal wisdom said Bennie
had not been quite explicit enough
to make out a case of tresspass. So
Buster was excused this time.

MRS. SQUIRES ADDRESSES
Mrs. R. M. Squires of Wake
Forest was the guest speaker at
the meeting of the P. T. A. study
Class on Tuesday afternoon of
this week. Her subject: “Shoes
and Ships and Sealing-Wax and
Cabbages and Kings” was devel
oped along lines of child training
and was a source of helpful in
formation and inspiration to her
hearers. It is regretted that the
exceedingly bad weather kept
away some who would otherwise
hove heard this brilliant address.
The Baptist church at Wakefield
was the place of meeting with wo
men of the church as hostesses.

S. Locklear to pay the costs and he

Benn Perry was charged with as

to be his wife. The case was nol
pressed which means Ben beat the
court if he didn’t his wife.
Millard Murray was charged with
the possession of whiskey. He for

may keep an 1 sell liquor he can’t.
Anyway, he plead guilty and had

Comes to mine ears the voice of
a young Wendellite who isn’t a gen
tleman and the news of a Zehulon
ite who is a lady.
It seems that the Zebulonite has
gone to school away from here and
found a new love, leaving the Wen
dellfule holding the bag which is
indeed tough, I’ll admit.
However, the Wendell friend is
taking his spite out in the very un
sportsmanlike manner of telling in
colorful words vulgarities concern
ing our fair citizen. Neither is of
any relation to me, but if she was,
I’d ride him out of town on a pole
and tar and feather him, and, if he
was I’d be tempted to murder him
in cold blood.
The catty talking women do (and
men too) about other people is
bad enough, but when a low-brow'ed
nothing begins to run down a girl’s
standing in any community with
vulgar, slimy talk, that is in my
opinion the lowest form of amoeba
yet to be discovered. Not only does
it reflect on him but also on his
parents and the way they have
tried to raise him. Lad, if I were
in your shoes, T’d pull in my ears
before someone trims them off.

I was looking in on a vaudeville
recently and remembered once I,
too, had aspirations toward the
stage. I can remember how my first
grade teacher agged me out onto
the stage And how the audience
egged me off.
Ah me, such possibilities spoiled
by early training.
But just to show you that every
thing turns out for the best, after
i two years on the legitimate stage
