Mrs. Cleve Chamblee sent me
one of the nicest dishotoths I ever
saw. It is double, is made of some
thing that looks like a cross, be
tween drawnwork and crochet, and
is nicely hemmed. She also sent
a note sayin.% she thought she had
me beat on dishrags and asked
my opinion. Honesty compels me
to admit'that sue is most probably
right, if one does not mind a bit
of extra expense—for I’m pretty
sure the one she sent me cost more
than two and one-half cents.
N. B.: I am perfectly willing, even
glad, to be put in the wrong by as
many readers as will back up their
arguments with nice, Dew' dishrags.
“Reading maketh a full man” —
or woman. Our son’s wife is usual
ly a quiet little thing, letting the
rest of us monopolize the speaking
parts in any acts we put on, but at
dinner last Saturday she suddenly
remarked that Ted had read to her
from a book on the art of conver
sation and that she knew all about
how to proceed. She said one must
lead up to an interesting topic,
“like this”. And turning to me she
inquired politely, “You won’t have
a cigar, will you?” I hadn’t read
the book and didn't know what 1
was supposed to answer, but it did
n’t matter. We laughed .and whoop
ed while Evelyn kept trying to tell
us what conversation is. Finally
she admitted that she did go to
sleep while Ted was reading to her;
but she had gathered that the way
to be a good conversationalist is
mostly to listen attentively to
what t he other person says. I’m
sure that definition can’t be beat.
And judged by that standard,
Evelyn is the best in our family.

P. -T. A. MEETING
Tht monthly metjin|!: of the
Wakelon P. -T. A. met Tuesday
evening in the school auditorium.
A vqry interesting program of
songs and a playlet by pupils of
the elementary school was, given.
Reports were called for by Mrs. J.
E. Gill, president. Mrs. Andrew
Jones reported that students in the
elementary and high schools had
read over 1,000 books from the li
brary during the month.
After the business meeting, Prof.
E. H. Moser introduced Rev. J. W.
Bradley, patsor of the local Meth
odist church. Mr- Bradley spoke on
things to be done fn the home and
among the teachers to make the
school a success. Among them he
mentioned the teaching of obed
ience to children by parents. He
also said parents should discuss
those things concerning a child that
a teacher ought to know. A teach
er* should never be criticised before
a child. Teachers should visit in
the homes of their students so as to
know the home and thus appre
ciate the home problems of the
child as well as the advantages. He
emphasized the fact that no matter
how well teachers might instruct,
the student must remember that he
learns for himself.

North Carolina’s General Assem

where much of the state’s early
history had its setting. New bills
were being rushed in for intro
duction before Wednesday.

We had just rounded a corner
when a police officer stepped from
behind a parked car directly in our
path. Jamming on all the brakes
possible, I was barely able to stop
in the nick of time.
The officer nodded his head and
looked sternly Tn my direction. I
was glad to dr.ve on much more
carefully, but no so with Bernice.
Sticking his head out the rear
window, Bernice Guffawed in the
cop’s face. “Hec-000-waah. We like

The officer stopped in the middle
of the street and watched us until
we rounded a corner some six
blocks further along. I have often
wondered just what he thought
as he watched us disappear down
the traffic lined street.
