I The movie is "Bonnie Prince! Charlie," a British production I made in technicolor in the Scot-1 tish Ilighlands--a cinematic re- j telling of one of history's most j dramatic stories, the rescue of the j "bonnie prince" by Flora Mac-I donald. The film was rated as one of the | year s most distinguished. The showing here will be its first in the south, or anywhere outside of a few of the largest cities. Ar rangements were made through the courtesy of Charles W. Pic-1 quel, Carolina theatre owner arid | manager, for the two benefit showings for the Historical asso ciation. Since it is believed that histori cal-minded persons, and those of Scottish descent throughout the Cape Fear region will want to see oiciure, and since the thea tre's capacity is limited, seats will be sold by reservation only, said Mrs Ives These may be made through Norris L. Hodgkins, Jr., of Southern Pines. Plans are to be made for at tendance by a good proportion of -ehcolchidiieii. The film ass produced by Alexander Korda, with David Niven in the role of the ill-fated Prince Charles and Margaret height on as the Scottish heroine, Flora Macdonnld, who in later life came to this country and lived in the Sandhills for a brief period in Revolutionary t.mes.

The Aberdeen team, paced by the 21-point scoring of Lorraine Lawrence, took a 36-21 half time lead, then coasted to victory. Bet ty Boggs scored 24 of Pinenurst s points. Southern Pines boys were breathing on Bobbins' neck until the third quarter. With a halftime ,ead of only two points?27-23? Bobbins then moved ahead to a anal 57-40 victory. While the scores left no doubt as to who had won, both Aber deen and Robbins knew they had met somebody. The two runner up teams put up masterly resist ance, making a fine accounting of themselves. In winning the 1952 title Rob bins boys resume the champion ship position they held in 1949.
