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
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. Justice, Hope and
It is an undisputed fact that the

Bradford and Mr. Parrot, the new
County Agents, will be present to
help in this discussion.
