With The Rotarians
Rayo Senter had the program
last Friday evening. Donald Pip
pin played two selections on the
piano. If you have never heard
him play you will be surprised.
That boy is an artist.
Prof. Pepper told what the teach
ers in the Wakelon School were do
ing to learn what the students were
best fitted for and then inform
them about their chosen vocation.
That is something worth while and
should be a great benefit to them
in the future. The teacher should be
honored in their undertaking to
start the boy or girl on their chos
en vocation during their school

CLUB COLUMN j
The Junior Woman’s Club held
its regular meeting at the club last
Thursday night. Business for the
new year was discussed The club
decided to exchange books again
this year and to return all of the
old books to the original owners.
Anyone having one of these books,
please return it to the person whose
name is in the front if you have
finished it. A committee was ap
pointed to select the new books. An
other committee was appointed to
write the report for the district
meeting to be held in Chapel Hill
Oct. 26. Miss Jo Dunlap, chairman
of the program committee, reported
on the subjects for programs to be
given this year. Ruby Dawson and
Marie Watson were hostesses. The
next meting wil be on Thursday
night, Nov. 4, at the club house.
The next meting of the Garden
Club will be held with Mrs. Fred
Page and Mrs. A. S. Hinton will be
joint hostess. The program will
be of special interest. The subject
is Miniature Gardens for Winter.
An exhibit and contest will be held
in connection with this. Not only
members of the club, but all others
interested are asked to bring ar
rangements of plants or flowers.
Points which will be considered
in judging are: Sincerity—whether
the arrangement is true to the idea
or plan in mind; Simplicity—whe
ther too many flowers are crowded
into the container; Suitability—
whether the arangement is appro
priate for the purpose designated.
Contestants are requested to
bring their flowers to the Page
home before the hour for the meet
ing. Should that be too inconven
ient, they will take them to the
side entrance instead of bringing
any into the room where the pro
gram will be given.

course will begin its year’s work
Tuesday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock.
The meeting will be held in the

This is one meting that is of vi

W. N. C. Methodist
The annual meeting of the West
ern North Carolina conference of
the Southern Methodist Church met
last week in Asheville with Bishop
Paul Kern of Durham presiding.
The conference voted in favor of
unification of the three big branch
es of the Methodist Church in A
merica, and adopted resolutions con
demning the legal sale of liquor and
calling upon Methodists to oppose
all such schemes and all public of
ficials supporting them. Reports
from the churches show the denomi

Sulfanilamide is one of the main
drugs in a new patent medicine
which has lately come upon the
market and which has been highly
recommended in treating many
diseases. It was found, however,
that the medicine is most injurious
unless the patient has the proper
dosage prescribed and that even
then there are some who cannot
use it. For this reason it is not
safe to be sold except when pre
scribed in the right amounts by a
physician. More than 40 deaths
have occured from the use of the
sulfanilamide preparation and the
company manufacturing it sent out
frantic messages urging the return
of all shipments after its danger
was discovered. Its sale is illegal
in North Carolina.
President Roosevelt has announc
ed that he plans an investigation of
the prices of newsprint, which is
the blank sheets on which newspa
pers are printed. Its cost has ad
vanced within recent months until
the difference is keenly felt even
by small printing plants. There is
said to be neither scarcity nor un
usual demand for the newsprint,
hence the rise in price must be due
to other causes.
KILLING AND DEATH
In Raleigh on Monday night John
ny Williams, 14-year-old boy living
on New Bern Ave. near the Old
Soldiers’ Home, shot and killed his
older brother Joseph aged 19. Two
hours later the boys’ grandfather
C. W. Creech, who made his home
with the family, died from shock.
The father was already in jail for
an infringement of the law.
Joh'nny, who dropped out of
school recently, said that his older
brother had continually beaten him.
On Monday night the younger boy
was told by the older to sack up
coal for an order. A row followed
and Johnny left the house, later re
turning to his room and leaving
word for his brother not to enter
where he was. In the darkness he
stated that he saw Joseph come in
and that he fired to stop him, not
to kill him. Death came as the
wounded boy was being taken to a

Herbert Hoover declared himself in
favor of fusion and coalition of Re
