Judge Winston
Talks at Rober
sonville Finals
Certificates Awarded to
Seventeen Young
Graduates
The Robersonville high school com
mencement exercises reached the top
notch last night when graduating cer
tificates were delivered to 17 fine
boys and girls and about 24 certifi
cates were given for grammar grade
work. Judge Francis D. Winston
climaxed the occasion when Ke pre
sented the three greatest institutions
that Divine thought and human love
have givfen to the world, Church,
Home and School. The Judge was
full of his old-time fire and while he
spiced the address with fun, he never
turned from the main points of the
subject. He charged the home with
tlie responsibility of presenting to the
school a child healthy and clean in
mind and body, a hundred per cent,
or whole child and not one impover
ished by the poisons that the child so
easily absorbs when placed in an en
vironment that is not free, clean and
clear.
When the child enters school it is
then to be fitted for the great tasks
of citizenship.
The church is the only safe guide,
not only to the child, the student and
the citizen but the parents, the teach
ers and those in authority of State,
trust be guided by the influences of
the church or we will have a feeble
child, a poor pupil and a weak citizen.
Success of Kiwanis
Minstrel Assured
Judging from the advance sale of
tickets for the Kiwanis Black and
White minsitre! revue which is to be
presented at the school auditorium on
Friday night, May 13, the "stand
ing room only" sign will be displayed
long before the curtain rises. Every
one is anxious to see Dr. Cone do the
black bottom, "Parson" Pardo and
John Biggs appeftr as the "GoidOst
Twins" and Murt Stubbs in the char
acter of "Josiah Willoughby" in "A
Dollar for a Kiss". That comedy
quartette is a scream and Charlie
Frank's dancing act is worth the
price of admission alone. There will
certainly be more fun than a box of
monkeys. Mr. Mclver's shows always
prove to be chock-ful of'fun, and the
"First Annual" will, have an abun
dant supply to tickel the ribs of old
and young. But don't overlook that
big beauty chorus, "Those girls are
real dancers, said Mr. Mclver today.
"I've never coached better dancers
anywhere, not even in the larger
cities." One big feature is the elab
orate costuming which will equal that
of any road show.
Reserved seats go on sale at Barn
hill Brothers and company Thursday
morning at 10 o'clock.
Red Cross Receipts
Are Added to Here
Local Red Cross receips were added
to this week when several
of $lO. and $5 were made to chair
man J. D. Biggs. The local chapter
of the D. A. R. society gave $lO. and
Messrs. R. A. Critcher and T. S.
Critcher each gave $6.
The flood situation along the Miss
issippi valley is still demanding funds
for rescue work and the quotas in
many paces have been doubled., A call
for relief continues, and any one wish
ing to offer help are asked to send
their donations to Jno. D. Biggs, lo
cal Red Cross chairman.
Deputies Capture
100-Gallon Still
Deputies Grimes and Roebuck made
a trip Monday of last week and
found a 100-gallon still near Hickory
Grove Church, 5 miles south of Wil
liomston. They also found 6 barrels
of beer. The still was hidden
bushes near the site, and the officers
thought there had been some one at
the still only a short time before their
arrival. The beer was poured out, and
the still seized.
The officers did not know whose
land the still was on.
Maude Peaks Dies in
Washington Hospital

Worms Destroy
Tobacco Plants
The first set back in Know
ing tobacco this season has
been reported by man> farmers
where cut worms have destroy
ed 50 per cent of the plants.
Certain sections in the county
have suffered a damage from
the worm estimated to be over
50 pfcr cent and in those cases
the farmers, are said to be re
setting their crop.
The damage' this season is
said to be greater than usual
because the cool nights have
made it possible for the worm
to be more active.
Liberty Bonds
To Be Paid on
November 15th
Order Calls for Payment
of Second Issue
Bonds Only
Washington, D. C., May !>. —Secre-
tary Mellon has called for payment
on November 16, 1927, all outstanding
Second Liberty Loan bonds. Interest
on these bonds will cease on Novem
ver 18, 1927. Approximately $1,700,-
000, OIK) of these--bonds are now out
standing.
While the bonds will be paid on
November 15, 1927, it is quite prob
able that during the next* nix months
the Treasury will extend ko the hold
ers of the Second Liberty Loan bonds
an opportunity to exchange them for
other Government securities. No an
nouncement has as yet been made as
to the type of security to be offered
in exchange, or the date on which the
exchange offer may be expected. The
Treasury explains that the terms of
the bonds require that a notice be
given to the public six months in ad
vance of the redemption date. The
Secretary's announcement, therefore,
not ttu-iui. U\«i. Lite kMhd« will -be
paid at the present time, but merely
places the holders on notice that their
bonds will be redeemed on November
lb, and will cease to bear interest on
that date.
Steal Tires From Truck
Last Wednesday Night
Sometime during Wedn sday night,
thieves robbed a truck belonging to
Mr. J. T. Savage of its tires. Mr.
Savage, who lives on the Staton farm
near here, had loaded the truck late
Wednesday with tobacco plants ready
for an early start yesterday mornin"
The thieves were evidently in netxl of
tirs only, for Mr. Savage found the
truck as he left it with the exception
of the tires which were gone,.
Local (iirl to Censor
Movies for Students
Miss Velnui Harrison lias boon ap
pointed censor for Salem College, at
Winston-Salem, for the balance of the
current term and the next one. This
is one of the highest honors that
could come to her, since it is an ex
pression of confidence by the faculty
of the college in her judgment and
discretion as to what is suitable for
the young ladies of the institution to
see at the moving picture theaters.
The college students are permitted
to attend the theater once each week,
if accompanied by a teacher. They,
however, will not be permitted to see
any picture without the approval of
Miss Harrison.
Williamston feels justly proud that
such an expression of confidence has
b«en delegated to one of her daugh
ters.
Only Six States Spend
Less Than North State
According to latest reports, North
Carolina ranks forty-second in the 48
State in expenditures' for all pur
poses; that is ft) say, only six States
spend less tha.fi we do.
The following are the items em
braced and our rating on eacr: For
general government expenses, wcare
40th; for agriculture, 36th; for fight
ing communicable diseases, sixteenth;
highway supervision and maintenance
(not road building), twenty-sixth;
charities, thirty-fourth; education,
forty-fourth; recreation, thirty-first;
miscellaneous, mainly for pensions,
twentyfourth. The total is $6.09 for
each inhabitant.
It is graitfying to see our rank is
higher in the charities and benevo
lences than in any other of the lines
of. expenditures.

week at the Caledonia State farm
when they engaged in a mutinous
riot and destroyed $6,000 worth
of State property. Neurly two days of

Not Man's Body Seen
in River Here Friday
The report made by Will Staton,
aged colored man, that he saw u
man's body floating down the river
Friday morning was branded as false
vurly Sunday morning when a two
days' search revealed nothing but a
hog's body.
Staton saw the carcass drifting
down the Roanoke early Friday

of a white man, he was afraid to
drag Ft ashore. He reported his find
ings and the County. Coroner, S. R.

It was rumored that a man was

Tells Graduates of Great
American Game That
Is I>ein£ Played
Seventeen young graduates, twelve
girls and Ave boys, looked bewildered
when Dr. Hubert M. Poteat, of Wake
Fiiiest, turned to them last Friday
night at the conclusion of his cor.i
meicement address in the Jameaviile
nhool auditorium and told them it was
their-duty, their task la go out a.! I
destroy tin; "Croat American Gan.e'
According to the speaker, when
ore is feeding th • public what it de
mands and does so for a pri'.it and
•vi ltout any hope oi elevating : _n>i
l:on£ in general, he is playing lie
Gre.it American (jame. In l)r Pa
tent's opinion, th» Great American
Came is going on in politics, religion,
cu-i \ newspapers, niagazins, books,
and in ilie field of education
In .tincrican politics, Dr. I'oteat
slated that the appeal is male to
prejudice nnd personalities and n.-t to
issues. lit iited the recent, Chicago
election as an example and state i that
s.ni lar conditions existed everywhere
ii the United States. The game has
,>l:ived havoc with music until to 'ay
pine-tenths of the songs are indeoent,
and the church has its share of such
songs, stated the orator. As examples,
he mentioned "In the Middle of I lie
Night", and "Brighten the Corner * r "
'Hie.se and similar ones should be cast
aside, he said. Newspapers have no
longer a code of ethics, but work
with one eye on the subscription list
and the other on the advertising
page. The cheap magazine is lower
ing the ideals and feeding its millions
of readers with slu»h and diverting
their minds from elfcvating channels
to degrading one-
When he reached the field of educa
tion, the speaker stated that thous
ands of school children ail over the
I'nlted States are being used as lab
oratory material, that new methods
in education are being advanced at
the expense of the small school child.
Instead of teaching those things that
count, the schools aVe giving courses
in dodging automobiles,and whistling.
'I lie writing of movie scenarios is
becoming popular in many of the
li.rge schools, becoming so at the ex
pense of other subjects that are vital
to the real training of a child's mind.
Vocationalism in its true sense is not
had, stated,the Wake Forest man.
The teaching of agriculture is all
right, but when courses are given in
whistling and dodging automobiles,
it is nothing but another instance
of the workings of the Great Ameri
can Game.
' If such a Kamc is destroyed, the
yc ung graduate now leaving the high
schools of the country has got to do
it, and in jts stead he must develop
those things that are elevating, de
clared Dr. Poteat.
At the conclusion of Dr. Poteat's
Principal J. 1.. Jones award
ed the seventh grade certificates to
a large number of pupils. Frizes were
the best two reciters. Certificates of
given to the best two declaimers and
graduation wen? awarded the seven-
teen young graduates,

Mr. Jonas announced that the ma

'The Path Across the Hill" is the
name of the play which will be pre

Thursday at 8 p. m. The play is an
unusually good one, and those tak
ing part have been working hard for
