Hot Lunches Improve
Health of Children
Court House News
Many Gain Weigrht, Says Dr.
The hot lunches in the schools are
steadily improving the health of
many of th^ children, says Dr. J.
Symington, Public Health Officer of
Moore county. One boy has gained
twenty pounds in weight in one of
the schools since the beginning of
the hot lunches, and one girl who
was much below par has gained
eighteen pounds in weight. Many of
the children who were underweight
have been brought up to normal.
Those who have made thes« lunches
possible by contribution arid those
■who have given their time and work
ed hard during these winter months
to make these hot lunches a success
are due much appreciation, and we
know that their valued gifts and dili
gent labor are very much appreciated
by the parents of the children and by
the children themselves. Diseases
such as tuberculosis, rickets and pel
lagra have undoubtedly been warded
off by these lunches during the win
ter months, and children enabled to
do better work in school.
Mrs. Francis T. Keating of Pine-
hurst has been able to raise more
money for the dental clinic, and the
State dentist will continue his work
in the county until the end of the
present school season. The State den
tists found the condition of the teeth
of the children in Moore county as
bad as in any of the worst counties
in the state, and this show's the nec
essity of such a clinic. It is hoped
training for the children to continue
going to their dentist at least once
a year so that their teeth may be
kept in a healthy condition. Money
has also been raised by Mrs. Keating
to enable the state to send Dr. Holli
day to work on the children attend
ing the Pinehurst New Settlement
School, and a clinic there will com
mence on Monday the 23rd inst.
The kind of food the children are
given is very important in the pre
vention of pellagra and in maintain
ing teeth in a healthier condition. So
much depends on good feeding. The
public health officer is continuing the
examination of children in schools
throughout the county and is con
ducting a campaigrn against pella

What’s In A Name?
Some folks may think there is not
very much in a name, but June Har
rington, son of W. J. Harrington,
Moore county’s Register of Deeds,
thinks its pretty poor business to
have the same name that some other
folks carry around with them. In last
week^s Recorder’s Court “June Har
rington” was up, charged with pos
session and transporting. However,
the June Harrington in question was
a colored man, but few people in the
county are aware of the' existence of
a June Harrington except the Regis
trars son, so there you are. However,
we introduce to the public June Har
rington Number 2, and state that it
was he and not the well-known Mr.
Harrington who was reported in last

North Carolina veterans have re

loans under the new bonus legis

More than 35,000 applications for
loans have been received, he said.
Although they are not coming as
rapidly as during the first two

Only 36 of the fires listed in last

Pines is seriously contemplating hold
ing the Inn open into June, and is
making prelijninary preparation now
that they may be ready up there on
the hill if they carry out the idea. He
says he believes profitable business
can be done several weeks after the
period on which the folks have been
sent away in past years. Mr. Cream
er has been studying the tpossibilities
of a move of this kind for several
years, and is pretty well convinced
that if the folks of the community
will make an earnest effort to have a
longer season it can be accomplish
ed. It is believed that many more
North Carolina people can be attract
ed to the golf courses and the tennis
and archery games, and other things
that are here. Good roads make it so
easy to come from any place in the
state, or from the states farther south
as well as from the North, that ad
vocates of a longer season are confi
dent that success will follow' a deter
mined effort to make this a summer
resort in the early summer and a fall
resort in the fall.
Thousands of folks went to make
a vacation automobile journey in the
early summer months when it is yet
too cold and unpleasant to go to the
New England and northern boundary
country. The good roads down through
Maryland, Virginia and North Caro
lina, reaching mountain and seashore
down this direction provide the out
let. But as Mr. Creamer says trav
elers can’t come this way and put up
unless they have a place to stay, and
they don’t know that we have such
places unless we tell them. Mrs.
Giles is making a good
Has it occurred to you that the Andrews home on
Weymouth took out of the available building room up
there nearly 40 acres, and cleaned up all the territory
between Massachusetts and Connecticut avenues, that
as much land as that taken this year would move the
frontier of development down to the Bethesda road, and
that one or two more such purchase totals in a season
would make Connecticut avenue, Indiana avenue and
Bethesda road the outskirts of Weymouth?
