DA Vie Mrs. Needham Pitts told me that she never found hepaticas in the woods around here and that she has put in a good bit of time looking for them. I am sorry, for they add so much beauty to any place they grow. By the way, their other name is liverwort, which is. not pretty, and I think •m they are related to sal hepatica, Jf too.

Church At Wake Forest Work is beginning on a Metho dist church at Wake Forest. Its membership will include those be longing to the Methodist church at Rolesville. The build ng at Roles ville will be remodeled and used as a teacherage for the school. It is an old building, but in a fine state of preservation. Tuesday in Washington saw the reading of President Roosevelt’s message to congress in which he asked for a relief fund of $1,500,- 000,000. Many people regard his de mand as exorbitant, but the gov ernors of Pennsylvania, New York and Illinois, all Democratic, an nounced that if this sum for relief were not forthcoming their state governments would be forced into bankruptcy. The relief bill will probably be passed at an early date with comparatively few changes. Passing the bill will prob ably also mean new taxes. Although American citizens are hard hit due to New Deal taxes* they are not alone in their misery. Englishmen too have to dig down to pay their government accounts- New- English tax plans call for in creases in all collection departments to the extent that now Englishmen mus-t pay as taxes one dollar out of every four that they earn. ? lean-up Drive Next Week e Woman’s Club and other civ janizations in Zebulon are for the town to have a clean mpaign next week.

This Home-Coming Day has been talked of a great deal during the year. We have definitely decided to make an effort to get as many s possibel of the old graduates, and old Wakelon School students here fr the commeneeent exercises.

Clarence Mit chell by a vote of 5,000 to 2,000. The office of mayor carries with it the position of commissioner of fi nance. Safety Commissioner T. K. Fountain was re-elected as was City Judge Wiley Barnes- Ed Bar ton, candidate for Public Works Commissioner Ferguson’s post, was second to Ferguson in a field of four and is entitled to a second pri mary if he desires one. Until after the seventeenth cen tury belief in witchcraft was al most universal. During the reign of Henry 111 30,000 "witches'’ were burned to deatfTln France. It is es timated that in all Europe 9,000,000 persons have been put to death as witches- sanitary and more beautiful place in which to live. One reason for the date set is that many will come on May sth to Wakelon’s commencement and it is only natural for residents to wish that all premises may look their best at that time.

As most folks know, I’m not at all what you might call brilliant. No scintillating rays of knowledge radiate from this lowly one’s brow. Since everyone knows this, they pay me no mind when I make any remark. Hence— I have tried three times to wade through Margaret Mitchell’s “Gone With the Wind”. The first two times, I went to sleep, the third, well, to be frank, I didn’t have the heart to begin again. Such as it was, was all right. But Scarlett O’Hara always seemed to be try ing to get out of the slowness of the plot. Like twenty pounds of sugar in a twelve-pound bag. At places the book seemed to be written in the— “I’m gett ng two cents a word for all I write and the more I describe this, scene the more money I will be able to put in my pocket, or purse, or pocket-book, or billfold. I must go now, I must be on my way, I must travel along, I must say adieu, I must aw nuts—” I’ll adrffffc that that is more like Gertrude Stein, bjt after all, even with Miss Mitchell’s wonderful flow of description, I tire of going into a room and having every sin gle speck of dust described to me. I like better to move into a room, take a hasty look, close my eyes and then pick out the outstanding objects from the picture formed. If I recall correctly, the late Ar nold Bennett’s “Imperial Palace” spent the better part of two chap ters preparing you for and taking you through the great market place While t was all wonderfully writ ten, yawns were perceptible on my part. 8:00 P. M. Perhaps, like the poor swimmer, when I get in water above my waist I become nervous and am quite ready to change to tennis, golf or anything else to get out of the deep water. Nevertheless, ‘Three Smart Girls’ failed to reg'ster with me, and yet it received the motion picture award, as did “The Great Ziegfeld” at which my seat became quite hard and the picture quite long- Pretty much the same as some scenes in “Gone With The Wind”. You know, sometimes I envy the Roosevelts, the Einsteins, the Mus solini’s, even the high society, and then I think that maybe they don’t think things are as hot as they’re cooked up to be. Even our own dear Bob Reynolds showered scads of publicity on our state when he kiss ed the puckered lips of Jean Har low. Os course Robbin did it for the love of his country, but I always will have a sneaking suspicion that there was an ulterior spark of en joyment on the part of our Senator. Or was there? If there wasn’t, the old boy had better see his physi cian. Well, that’s off my chest and I can’t tell any difference. Which on ly goes to show that I’m even worse off than I thought. The more I say the less I know go before it’s too late,Toodle-0000. NUMBER 43 The Swashbuckler.
