Funeral services were held yes-

“Bev," as everyone knew him, had
suffered much since the war, prob
ably more than liis friends appreciat

pital on several occasions. It was
while serving as an ambulance driv
er in France that he was gassed.
Driving thioagh a sector under gas
attack with wounded men in his

escape with wounded soldiers from a
hospital under German siege. “Bov"
■was twice cited for heroism and sac
rifices by the P'reni’h government.
Here in the Sandhills he took an
active part in polo back in the days
when John Tuckerman, Richard Lov.
ering, the late “Jack" Latting and
others of the cottage colony had a
team took on all comers. "Bev''
played regularly for years, and was
deeply interested in the revival of
the game in Pinehurst this past fall.
He used to hunt regularly with the
Moore County Hounds in Southern
Pines. Last year he was a.ssistant
secretary of the Sandhills Steeple
chase and Racing Association, and
two sea.son.s ago was active in local
amateur theatricals. He had interest,
ed him.self in various business ven
tures in the section, as well as in
sports, being engaged in peach grow-
ing for some time. He has been most
active in connection with launching
the new boys' school here for the
past year or so.

Walter was thrice married. He is
survived by his widow, Mrs. Frances

In a statement to the press this
week Mr. McLean outlined a number
ot ideas which he will promote if
elected. He favor.s authoii/.ing the
State Convict Board to give employ
ment to convicts desiring It upon
their completion of their sentences,
a move he believes would reclaim
most of them as good citizens. He
would ''encourage and promote gen
eral expansion in undeveloped fields
of activity, for which there is wa.ste-
ful opportunity in this state, that In
the rour.se of time would give gain
ful employment to thousands of men
and would greatly enhance the value
of eveiy community."
He favors providing for retired
school tenchers through an adequate
pension system, to be accomplished
by readjusting upward teacher sal.
aries so that their pensions can be
built up out of their pay. He is not
in favor of changing any existing
laws which are satisfactory, nor of
increasing taxes. He thinks the high
way system .should be extended to
provide good road.“ for wide stretches
of territory not now properly serv.
