PINEHURST COMMUNITY CLUB The regular meeting of the Pine hurst Community Club was held last Friday evening at the Community House. A very large crowd was pres ent, the building being taxed to it’s capacity. Delegations from other Community Clubs in the County were in attendance '.nd iii expressed de light at the interesting Club formed at Pinehurst. It is thought that this meeting marked the beginning of an interchange of visits between clubs, as in this way ideas can be exchanged and many good things accomplished which will contribute to the success of the work. After transacting the regular busi ness of the club, having reports and recommendations of Committees, etc., several enjoyable recitations and mu sical selections were given by the children. Mr. Sledge then introduced Mrs. Clarence A. Johnson, Commis sioner of Public Welfare in North Carolina, who delivered a most in teresting address on social work. Mrs. Johnson outlined in detail the plan her department was endeavoring to follow in North Carolina, and gave us some idea oif our responsibility, as Community Clubs, and as individu als, in the solution of many important problems. Not the least among these in im portance, she stated, was the matter of selecting otir officials, and her ad monitions along this line were ex tremely timely in view of the im pending primaries about to be held over the State. Mrs. Johnson wanted all to understand that her remarks on this subject were purely impersonal and carried with them no desire to inject politics into our community work. However, it is highly import ant, particularly during this period, that officers be chosen who stand for the enforcement of law, and Mrs. Johnson admonished the people to be particularly careful in selecting their Superior Court Clerks, as under the law the Clerk of Court is the Judge of the Juvenile Court and must of necessity be a citizen of very high calibre and broad experience. Pinehurst feels highly honored in having received a visit from this dis tinguished leader, and we want her to know that in leaving Pinehurst Mrs. Johnson took with her our earn est prayers for the success of her department, which, a§ she stated it, has for it’s aim.
