Race for Queen of Spring
Festival Week of April 9
The 17th annual Pinehurst Horse
?how gets under way this morning
-It the show ring near the race track
Anri bid*i fair to prove the biggest
and best in number of entries, in
juality of horses shown and in at-
'endance in the long history of this
;X)pular event.
More stables have entered horses
han ever befcT'e, among them some
•'f the leaching show stables in the
country. Fort; Bragg has sent more
lorses here than ever. The hunter
snd jumping events, usually the most
exciting of the many classes, are well
billed and the public will have an op
portunity to see horses from all parts
>f the state as well as those which
lave been hunting with local packs
-his winter. In addition to the hunters
and jumpers many fine saddle horses
Are entered, with a number of the
.spirited five-gaited mounts among
them.
There are classes for trotters and
pacers, saddle ponies and artillery
mounts, and a special class for youth-,
ful riders with pr?zes for the boys and
girls who display skill in handling
"heir steeds. ,
A new class this year which is ex
pected to prove one of the prettiest
in the show will be the Corinthian
«vent for hunt teams shown in col
ors. Most of the hunter classes will
Ge shown over the outside course of
jumps this year.
The show will be judged by Otto
Furr of Middleburg, Va., J. North
Fletcher of Warrenton, Va., and
Camden, S. C., William Baker ol^
Providence, R. I., and General Manus
McClosky of Fort Bragg.
Charles W. Picquet, secretary of
the show, said yesterday that the
advance ticket sale had been better
than ever this year, that most of the
boxes had been sold and that very
few parking spaces around the ring
were left.
Lunch and tea are to be served
both today and Satvirday at the ring
side for the benefit of undernourished
children of the county, the local Red
Cross chapter and the Pinehurst
Chapter, Moore County Hospital Aux
iliary.

can were named in each of the 100
counties of the state to serve as
county boards of elections for the

The county members are recom
mended by the State Democratic and
Republican chairmen, respectively,
and usually such recommendations
were followed, but in a few instances
the State elections board made com
promise as to factions.
The board» will meet at the re-
apective county seats April 14 to
name Judges and reaigtrars for the
June 2 primary and the seconc} pri
mary, June 30.
The Moore County board is com

D. D. S. Cameron, Southern Pines,
D-imocrats, and B. C. Wallace, Car.
thage, Republicans.
By Bion H. Butler
One of the most significant things
this spring is the closing of the deal
by L. L. Biddle, II, by which Burrell
White becomes the owner instead of
! the lessee of the fine 150-acre tract
j in Knollwood on which he has lived
; for the past five years and which he
^ is now planning for a development
that is to make of the property
another of those striking establlsh-
: ments for which that section ot
i Knollw'ood is becoming famous.
Some lime ago Mr. White arrang-
1 cd his affairs to develop a Sar.'Thills
I home but his health tailed him for
a while and he took sail to some ex
tent. But in the last two or three !
years the tide has turned and he is !
in prime physical condition again, |
j and with the improvement he has j
made on the place while he has occu-
! pied it his enthusiasm has grown and
now he is going ahead with a new ;
ardor. Already he has outlined a ■
scheme that will make his posses
sion an example find an appreciated
factor in the community,
j The property Mr. White has se- ;
cured is that tract overlooking the
Southern Pines reservoir running up |
to the Knollwood boundary and to the '
lines of the Barber property west of j
Knollwood, a quarter of a square •
mile of land that tops the summit
of the wateished between McDeeds
j Creek and Mill Creek, a picturesque,
pine-covered area that lends itself
' to the most ambitious plans of land
scaping and rural home making that
! can be desired. Already Mr. White
i is proceeding with ne^v buildings, the
' first structure being a home for his
superintendent, a fine modern cot-
, tage not far from the main house.
, At the main house he has lines laid
down for an addition in the form of
a guest house, attached to the main
building though a separate , unit,
; wholly for the entertainment of his
, friends, for Mr. White is a man who
! values the companionship of people
I he likes. He will gather about him
' from time to time congenial spirits
, and they and he will enjoy the de
lights of the Sandhills.
I To Develop Orchard
He is a lover of nature. Therefore
j his plan.s include an orchard of a
dozen or so acres, which will be un
ique. Realizing that at times this
region lacks surface water to keep
the, crops in good growing condition
Mr. White has one of the Carolina
I Drilling Company’s big machines put
ting down a deep well which is ex
pected to provide a supply of water
that may be used for irrigating the
orchard to be a sort of research or.
chard to find out some of the things
not fully known yet about fruit
growing in this section. Below the
houses is a stream that affords a
rather free supply of water, and a
dam is projected there to make a

DR. VARDELL TO PREACH AT
PINEHI^RST EASTER SERVICE
On April 1. C. W. A. and Emer-
' gency Relief are to be replaced in
, all rural areas by a program of Rur-
I al Rehabilitation and from this date
' no more direct relief will be given
but all supplies advanced will con-
I stitute a loan which the recipient will
be required to repay by working on
' relief projects.
Already the new set-up for Moore
county has been perfected, with J. R.
Mclnnis as Director of the Rural Re-
' habilitation program. The county had
I been divided into four sections with
* E. R. Brown of Hemp, D. J. Blue of
^ Carthage, D. Al Blue of Southern
Pines and Donald McDonald of Cam
eron at the head of these sections.
They will work with the various case
I workers.
The aim of the new program is
three-fold: '
! 1. All farm families with one or
, more able bodied men to be self-sup
porting by December 1.
2. The beginning by the end of
the year of a permanent rehabilita
tion program based upon home own-
' ership.
3. The development of small in
dustries in rural areas.
j In an effort to make all families
I self-supporting, a farm and garden
; program has been worked out and to
be eligible for aid, the head of the
household must sign an agreement
I which reads as follows:
' "On condition that I am to con-
I tinue to receive aid as in the opinion
j of county relief administrator my
‘ need and the funds available war-
^ rant, I hereby agree to plant, culti
vate, and conserve food as directed
by the relief administrator of Moore
county, in accordance with the detail
ed plan entitled Farm and Garden
Program for (Name) of even date
attached to and a part of this agree
ment. If I do not comply with such
directions, it is understood that 1
am not to receive further relief.”
The Crarden l^ognuii
A garden program will be outlin
ed according to the needs of each
family, specifying the amount of
land to be planted to cabbage, peas,
beans, etc. and the amount will be
sufficient for a supply to be canned
for the next winter’s needs. Com
munity gardens on the pian used last
year will be approved only where
individual jgardena, are liupractica-

The Rev. A. J. McKelway of Rox
boro has acceptea the call to succeed
i the Rev. W. Murdoch McLeod as pas
tor of the Pinehurst Community
! Church, it was annjiunced at the
I morning service last Sunday.
The Rev. Mr. Murdoch McLeod
preached his farewell serrhon Sunday
; morning, bringing to a close his nine
I years pastorale in this church. With
his family he left Tuesday for Nash
ville, Tenn., to take up the work of
pastor at Moore Memorial Presby
terian Church.
In the weeks preceding their de
parture Mr. and Mrs. McLeod were
' the recipients of many social cour-
' tesies and expressions of the love and
! esteem in which they were held. Not
able among the latter was the presen-
: tation, on last Sunday morning by
Robert E. Denny in behalf of the
Sandhills Brotherhood a handsome
watch to Mr. McLeod. The Sunday
school had previously given him a
t valuable book.
i The Woman’s class, in w'hich Mrs.
; McLeod had served as teachor, pre-
' sented her with cr>3lal candle
: candle sticks.
Just prior to the sermon Sunday
I morning, I. C. Sledge, chairman of
the pulpit supply committee was ask-
' ed to real a message from the Rev.
Mr. McKelway to whom a call had
I been .'sent. In this, his acceptance of
! ing to present plans he will preach
I the call was made known and accord-
his first sermon here on April 22d.
It was mostg ratifying to Mr. McLeod
I and his congregation that almost no
lapse in the work would be caused
