Preparing For A
Hard Cage Season
(By W. THOS. REEVES
After completing one of the most
successful seasons of any Mountain
eer football team the local high school
lads have stored their padded pants
and shoulder pads to don the light
equipment of a basketball squad. The
boys have been practicing part of the
afternoons and some of the nights in
order to he ready for their opening
game which has been booked for some
date after the Christmas holidays.
This year's team will have Bridges
and Ross from last season's medicore
rive. To these may be added Frank
lin, Sease, Ben Bridges, Yount, Leath
erwood, and Reeves and the sum of
these would not make a good basket
ball team with a mathematical wizard
'doing the addition. If Coach Carleton
Weatherby can develop a good quin
tet from the above material, miracles
are still the order of the day. There
may be a good high school player in
this group. The writer has not seen
him. Maybe some will develop as they
have in football and the boys can play
in a class with Weathei-by's girls'
From the girls' team some good
players were lost, especially will Un
derwood, all-western forward, be miss
ed. Tate and Gaddis could be used to
a splendid advantage. However, in
Phillips the high's sixtet will bost of
one of the best players to ever per
form on the local court. Welch and
Winkler should be two good guards.
Jo Ann Phillips has returned and is
expected to be valuable to the team.
Reserves will fill in vacant places and
freshmen players, especially Millner
of East Waynesville's undefeated team
will make it interesting for any old
timers. The girls should again have
one of the best teams in the state.
'Coach Weatherby has stated that a
good - schedule will be played after
returning from the holidays, and tour
nament games would be played if in
vitations were received.
Of Library Will Be
Given New Years
A dance in which the entire commu
nity is interested will be given on New
Year's Night at the club house of the
Seven Club which was recently or,
ganized here. The dance hail being
on the Sulphur Springs property. The
dance is for the benefit if the local
library, and indications are that a
large crowd will be in attendance.
Practically every civje organiza
tion in town is behind the movement
and will have a sponsor at the dance.
The sponsor of each organization will
participate in the grand march.
Tickets will be on sale at all drug
The Buccaneers, a ten-piece orches
tra, will furnish the music.
Tickets on sale at all drug stores.
Friends here will be interested in
knowing that Miss Victoria Bell,
formerly of this county, and until
reccintly welfare superintendent in
Catawba county, and has been named
as superintendent of the district ERA
The promotion for Miss Bell is sig
nificant of the splendid work .he has
been doing in Catawba county, ac
cording to The Hickory Daily Re
In a column editorial, the paper
said: "We feel that Catawba county
loses a woman , who has 'contributed
enormously to our social well-being."
Two From County
To Attend Meeting
The Rev. K. W. Baucum. pastor of
the local Baptist church, and Glenn
D. Brown, local transportation or

that this community make an excel
lent showing at that meeting.
It is believed that this .will 'be the
greatest Sunday School convocation
held in the world in 1935; if attend
ance exceeds that of the four previous
conferences, it will be the largest.

that all the would should be taxed. And th;
taxing was lirst made when Cy renins was go
erncr ol' Syria. And all went to be taxed, every
one into his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out
of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea unto the
city of David, which is called Bethlehem, to be
taxed with Mary, his espoused wife, being great
And so it was, that, while they were there,
the days were accomplished that she should be
delivered, and she brought forth her first born
son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes and
laid him in a manger; because there was no
room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shep
herds abiding in the field, keeping watch over
their llock by night, and lo, the angel of the
Lord came upon them and the glory of the 1ord
show'n around about them; and they were sore
afraid. The angel said unto them, fear not ;
for 1 bring you good tidings of great joy, which
shall be to all .people.- For unto you is born
this day in the city of David, a Saviour which
is Christ, tit' i.itd. And this sh;dl b a sign
uafi u; Ye si-pli find the Hiabc wrapped n
swaddling clothes lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a
multitude of the heavenly hosts praising God
and saying, Glory to God on the highest, and on
earth peace, good will toward men. And it came
to pass as the angels were gone away from them
into heaven, the shepherds said one to another,
let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see
this thing which is come to pass, which the
Lord hath made known unto us.
And they came with haste, and found Mary
and Jovseph and the babe lying in a manger and
when they had seen it, they made known abroad
the sayings which were told them concerning
this child. And all they that heard it wondered at
those things which were told them by the shep
herds, but Mary kept all these things, and pon
dered them in her heart.
And the shepherds returned, glorifying and
. praising 'God 'for all the things that they had
heard and seen, as it was told unto them

"And the world was made, fleh

It is the dawn at last, after the
long centuries of sin's dark, night. It
is consummation, toward which a
burdened world, fighing for the rev
elation of the sons of God, has wearily
dragged its way. All nations are ex
pectant, for, not only have the pro
phets of the Hebrews in majestic
strains spoken of the events of this
night, but the sages of the Gentiles
have dreamed and spoken of a golden
age to be introduced by one yvho is
to be born a king of the Jews. In
the orient has arisen a star and in
the visions of the night a Voice has
whispered to three kings that the
star is his sign. - ' - ;
