MRS. THEO. B. DAVIS, Editor
Please send local or personal items to the RECORD shop by Tuesday night, if possible.
Give me my scallop-shell of quiet,
My staff of faith to walk upon,
My script of joy, immortal diet,
My bottle of salvation,
My gown of glory, hope’s true
And thus I'll take my pilgrimage.
—Sir Walter Raleigh, in ‘The Pas
sionate Man’s Pilgrimage,” 1604.

A SURPRISE BIRTHDAY
On Sunday, May 1, Mr. J. W.
Sherron of Wakefield was given a
surprise birthday dinner at Pullen
Park in Raleigh by his family and
some of his closest friends. It was
all carefully planned so that all
members of the family would know
what to bring for an enjoyable and
abundant meal. Under the ruse of
meeting some of the family that
lived in Durham it was possible to
get him to Pullen Park without
arousing any suspicion as to the
nature of the trip.
When Mr. Sherron arrived at the
park he was greeted by his daugh
ter and her family from Durham
and also some old friends with
them. Soon other members of the
family and friends from Granville
County, his old home place, from
Wakefield, Wendell, Zebulon and
other points as far away as Myrtle
Beach, S. C., began arriving and
all had the appearance of an acci
dental meeting and very enjoyable.
After greetings were exchang
ed the ladies of the party withdrew
and soon yelled “Come and get it!”
The surprise registered on Mr.
Sherron’s face from the previous
events was nothing to compare to
his surprise as the men proceeded
to the place where the ladies had
assembled the Picnic Dinner ar
ranged around a large, heavily
iced, birthday cake carrying 76
pink candles, one for each year of
his long and useful life. The ladies
were singing “Happy Birthday to
You” as the group assembled.
Around the cake were gifts as to
kens of esteem from his many
friends and relatives. Rev. W. R.
Sherron returned thanks and every
one participated in a most enjoy
After dinner thoughts turned to
other forms of entertainment.
Some rode the Merry-go-round,
others saw the animals; and some
sat and talked.

Delos Glenn of Durham; Mr. and
Mrs. Ed Cunningham and family
