V ' 3?. SAUSBURY
Where They . Were to Have
MarHed lWng Day.
. —Did Not Hear Approach
of Passenger Train. i
Wlilie mi route to Salisbury, where he
planned to be married during the after
noon, Charley Lomax was instanly killed
this morning shortly before 11 o'clock
when a Ford Youring car in which he
was riding was struck by Southern pas
senger train No. 36 at the crossing near
the Landis passenger station, and Miss
Pauline Caster to whom he was to have
been married and who Was in the car
. with him, was seriously, injured.
Miss Cnster was rushed .td' a Salisbury
hospital 1 as soon as she was freed from
the wreckage, and t.hp extent of her in
jnrie could not be learned early this af
Persons who witnessed the accident are
of the opinion that Lomax drove on the
tracks without seeing the approaching
-northbound passenger train due to the
fact that a \Verk train had just passed
going south and he drove on the tracks
as the work train passed. He had halt
ed his car for the train, which is be
lieved to have made so much noise ,that
he did not hear the other locomotive.
Tile Ford in which the couple was
riding was completely demolished. Parts
of the ear were hurled more than 100
fCet and the bodies of the couple also
were sent hurling through the air by
the compact of the collision. I-omax
, was sitting on the side of the car next
to the train and that probably accounts
for the fact that he was instantly killed.
Miss Cnster is a daughter of James
Caster, prominent Rowan county farmer
who lives about three miles from Faith.
She is about 22 years of age. I-omax
was said to be a native of this county,
but had- been working in Thouywville for
a relative who owns and operates there
a case. He also is about 22 years of

The couple left Faith sometime dur
ing the morning and stopped in Landis
to be examined by a physician well
known to the young lady, so they could
obtain a health certificate. The couple
told the physician they planned to be
married in Salisbury later in the day.
The body of I-omax was carried- to a
Salisbury undertaking parlor shortly af
ter the accident.

MERCHANTS IN SESSION
Annual Report of J. Paul Leonard, See-
Iretary— Association in Better 1 Shape
Charlotte, N. 0., May 20. (By the As
.soctated Press).—Delivering his annual
•report to the North Carolina Merchants
Association, J. Paul Leonard, secretary,
itold delegates assembled in Charlotte for
: their state convention that their associa
tion was in better shape today than it
had ever been in'the hjjtffley' of the or-
TapfenftMdP v - *'
Secretary Leonard’s report was one of
a number made by officers and directors
of the association this afternoon^
“If you will continue to suport the as
sociation as you have in the past few
years,” declared Mr. Leonard, “you will
have a state organization without a pect
in the entire nation. So long as you-do
hot permit dismemberment of your pres
ent plan of operation and do not allow
control of the association to pass into
the hands of officers who would change
the policies which have brought you suc
cess during the past several years you
need have no fears for the safety and
permanence of your organization, which
has now become a living institution in
. “Tlie results of your work in the past
few years,” said the secretary,, “show
that ydu have been building on a firm
foundation and along the right lines.
“In the very, beginning of a report on
past activities, let me urge upon you to
determine in your minds that your future
activities will be along the lines which
have proven successful iir the past.
“The claim that the associaiton is now
in the best condition it has ever been
is not because of the fact that it now has
the largest membership on record,” Mr.
Leonard told his hearers, “but the per
sonnel of the organization now includes
the best merchants in the State—because
a larger number of merchants have come j
into a realization of the necessity and
value of such an organization.”
The secretary then went into a re
viewal of the year’s accomplishments, cit
ing some of the association’s outstanding
achievements. He mentioned the pas
sage of a new cheek law sponsored by the
association; “the defeat of all efforts to
place Special taxes upon merchants or to
levy sales taxes to be collected by mer
chants; the defeat of a measure which
had as its purpose the regulation of
hours in stores; the elimination of sales
taxes that had heretofore existed.” Fur
ther, he cited, “the further development
of the Merchants’ Mutual Fire Insur
ance Company t the fostering of an offi
cial publication; die addition of a
freight audit service; the organization of
new local association in unorganized
towns, and’the creation of sentiment for
port terminals and water transportation
which helped to give the port terminals
issue a vote which was twice what op
ponents claimed it would be and larger
than some of us hoped for.” He added
that the vote “showed that there are
thousands of citizens in the State who
believe in State-owned port terminals and
recognize that .water transportation com
petition is essential to reduced rail rates.”
Secretary Leonard then reviewed brief
ly the legislative activities of the North
Carolina Merchants Association during
the past year. “I shall not go into de
tails in the discussion of legislative ac
tivities,” he said. lie mentioned the
new “bad check” law which, he said,
made it against the law to give a "worth
less check and placed the burden on the
drawer. “I believe it was a blessing to
North Carolina,” he declared, “that we
had just the kind of men, in the legisla
ture that we did have aud just the kind
of Governor we have today, at this criti
cal period in the States government. The
State has made great progress in thF past
few years and none of us would undo

Ksme Howard, British ambassador to

Macdonald college here a cornerstone for

the royal estate of Balmoral in Scotland.
In an address Sir Esme reviewed the

The ambassador said little was known
of the history of Flora Macdonald beside
her efforts to aid the Bonnie Prince Char-1
lie in 1745, following bis defeat at Cullo
den, and that afterwards she crossed the
Atlantic and settled in North Carolina.
The remarkable part, however of her life,
he said, was that after the Revolution
broke out “she and her husband sided
with the King who had not and nad
never been tile king of her heart.” Her
husband was taken prisoner and she re
turned to Scotland “which site had for
saken because it had turned against her
btaiuie- Prince.” It is not strange that
this whom we delight to honor to
day should have thus sacrificed herself
I twice for two lost causes which were as
I a matter of fact in direct opposition to
“That is why I called her the typical
adherent of lost causes.”
