TO GIVE VOCATION
COLORED GOAL IS $500
The 1940 Chri.stmns Soal Sale is
on in full force, and fortunately so for
the Moore County Tuberculosis Com
mittee. For the first time in the
committee’s history, there is not
enough in the treasury at the mo.
nicnt to meet the November bill at
the State Sanatorium, The little seals
only a penny apiece—will quickly
remedy this situation if the pennies
are forthcoming, and there’s from
now until Christmas for the generous
people of the county to do their part.
The school children are doing
theirs, Mrs. T. A, Cheatham, county
chairman, announces. She’s visited
the schools in every nook and cran
ny and finds the youngsters saving
their pennies. At one colored school
they’ve all forsworn candy for a
week, to give their pennies. The col-
oied population, with a goal of $500
this year, is doing splendidly. P. R.
Brown, chairman, in a letter sent to
his fellow- workers among the color
ed people, called attention to Moore
county’s standing at the head of the
100 counties of the state in per cap
ita contributions. Moore has led the
last two years, la.st year with 6.7 per
cent, with 5.1 for Forsyth county
next.
"Let us notice another condition,
with reference to tuberculosis in our i
county,” WTote Brown, "Of the 13 in
dividuals receiving treatment in the
sanatorium, eleven are negroes. Our
group is receiving support from this
afssociation. and as loyal citizens of
this great state, we should rally to
the campaign and help to assist the
Many individuals still without med
ical care.”
T,.' ads Counties of State
The record of Moore as head of the
,«:tate in per capita contributions is
due largely to the generosity of res
idents of and visitors to Pinehurst
and Southern Pines, Mrs, Cheatham
pointed out—people who have given
large sums toward the work. But she
expressed deep gratification at the
enthusiatic cooperation of all sec
tions of the county, and hopes to see
Moore again lead the state by a
wide margin this year.
Anyone who wishes to contribute
and who is uncertain of who his or
her local chairman is may send
checks directly to Mrs. T. A. Cheat
ham. Pinehurst, and they will be
credited to the town from which they
come.
Mrs. Cheatham called attention to
the fact that in 1936 the association
took care of 16 incurables, of whom
twelve died. "This year we have had
the smallest number, and only five
have died,” she said. "We are doing
more thorough w'ork, more follow-up
work, more preventative work, and
thi.s requires more money. But we
are making steady progress In the
elimination of tuberculosis from the
county."

Bagging deer is no new experience
for Bob Parks, S.^ndhills farmer and
vetofan sportsman, but recently he
bagged a buck after catching it,
losing a wrestling match and losing
Iiis gun in the melee.
That's the story .sent to The Pilot
by the 'Kev, Frank S. Blue of Kal- i

Parks, the Rev. Mr. Blue and
party were hunting together at the |
time, While sitting on a pine stump, j
Parks heard the yapping of hounds |
behind him and looked back just in
time to see a deer bounding over his
head. Ducking the flying hooves.
Parks reached up and grabbed the
buck by a hind leg:.
The speed of the leaping, 75 pound'
deer snatched the big 218-pound i
farmer off his perch. Deer and man
plunged headlong into a pine thick
et, the buck kicking' and wresting
himself free.
Parks scrambled to his feet, picked
up his gun and fired three times in
rapid order. Twice he missed, but the
third shot dropped the buck several
yards away. When the hunter took
time to check the swift events, he
found his right hand bleeding. Other
wise, he had lost neither his head,

came critical recently when he suf
fered a heart attack.
In 1899 Dr. Brown began the prac-
tive of medicine in Franklin and was
actively engaged in practice until the
state of his health forced him to re
tire in 1935. He was an ardent golf,
er and during his residence in South
ern Pines played daily at the Coun
try Club. He had many close friends
here.
Dr. Brown married Helen Hey-
diick, daughter of the late Judge
Christopher Heydrick and Frances

1905, in Franklin. He is survived by
his widow and one son, Alexander

against it when he tries to make a

tree on the Southern Pines postoffice
lawn had a beautiful crop and the
post-office employees conceived the
idea of putting spot lights on it at
Christmas time. It proved to be the
most beautiful tree in the commun

CHRISTMAS PARTY AT
BROWNSON »TEMORI.\L CHURCH
VN ith Governor Clyde R. Hoev pres
ent as gue.st of honor, the Sandhill.s
Kiwanis Club, at its anniial Alumni
and Ladies' Night meeting last even
ing in the Pine Needles awarded its
Builder's Cup to Charles W. Picquet,
manager of the Carolina Theatres in
Pinehurst and Southern Pines and
for years a leading spirit in Sand
hills charitable, civic and religious
affairs. No more popular award of this
“Man of the Year” trophy could have
been made, judging from the hearty
applause of the 200-odd members and
guests of the Kiwanis organization.
The presentation was made by At_
torney W. D. Sabiston of Carthage,
a member of the club’s board of di
rectors. Had Mr. Sabiston simply
said: “No one here present need be
told why Charlie Picquet is getting
this Builder's Cup,” and let it go at
that, the subject would have been
covered. But the occasion demanded
more, and in a gracious speech he
pointed out a few of the highlights
in the altruistic career in this vicin
ity of the mae.stro of all musical af
fairs, the major domo of most other
event,, the mogul of the movies.
Charlie, too surprised to be very co.
herent, expressed due appreciation of
I the honor conferred upon him by his
