During the month of Septem
ber, fourteen club meetings werej
held for women with an attendance
of 191. Due to the weather the at- (
tendance was not as large as wo
anticipated. Only one club made;
a score of 100. j
The new members of Rockfish'
club, which is the oldest in the) i
county, entertained the chapter
members at a delightful reception
September 27 at the home of Mrs.
Register. It was in her home that,
the first club was organized.
All project leaders did not come'
up to par in their reports, biit
we are looking for better cooper
ation next month. In some of the
clubs, splendid reports were given
by the leaders of: Housefurnishv
ing. Clothing, Garden, Yard Health,
Child Development, Recreation,
Food, and Education. '
Six hundred and forty-two miles
were traveled by the agent in con
ducting the work. Eighteen homes
were visited and twenty-one peo
ple were in some way through
calls at the agent's office. Fifty
individual letters were written,
three hundred and fifty bulletin!
were distributed, and five hun
dred programs were printed for
usendurlng the coming month.
The subject for study during
September was "Curtains and
Draperies.''"; During the agent's
demnst aHon' .tne'Iollowlng points
were demonstrated: -1. What col
ors, to use to suit the color of
walls, rugs and furniture. 2. How
to make the ceiling appear lower
or higher. 3. A uiscussion of tex
ture and proportion to make them
harmonize with styles of room. 4..
How to make the design suit the'
type of furniture and size of room.
5. How to make the selection of
draperies and curtains harmonize
with rooms opening together.

An undying faith in his consrro
gation, his mind and soul -Itterally
wrapped up in a program and h.s
automobile almost steadily rolling,
together with a firm faith and de
termination on the part of mem
bers of his church, resulted in the
pastor of the Rose Hill Methodist
Church announcing last Sunday
that the huge church indebted
ness tbat had been starcing the
members In the face for the past
ten years had been lifted.
Two weeks ago Rev. P. O. Lee,
pastor of the Rose Hill and Wal
lace churches set out on a cam
paign for the purpose of relieving
his Rose Hill congregation of a
$20,000 church debt. The debt has
been hanging for about ten years.
With interest piling up and weeds
growing up around the church
Pastor Lee made a last minute ef
fort to clear up the situation.
Through keen business negotiations
Mr. Lee and his helpers managed
to secure a compromise from an
insurance company, secured a $500
donation from the Duke endow
ment and a thousand dollar con
tribution from the church extension
This left a balance of. $5,000 to be
raised by the local congregation.
With the ever present phrase "it
can't be done" ringing in his ears,
Mr. Lee determined that it "could
be done". He marshalled his forces
together two weeks ago and set
out. Pledges were secured from the
members and Sunday morning last
saw the break of a new day on the
Rose Hill Methodist Church. It be
ing the fifth Sunday in the month
there was no church services held
at any ether church.. The citizens
of Rose Hill turned out to the
Methodist Church in such, large
numbers that many were literally
turned from the doors. After the
morning sermon those who had
pledges were asked to come forth
and pay their pledge. To the as
tonishment of every one present
people began marching up and lay
ing down the cash. They came so
fast that those receiving could
hardly keep up with it. Not only
did the members of the Methodist
church contribute but members of
every church in town and those
who are not members of any
church liberally donated. One man
was seen to lay down one thousand
dollars in cash. Young people, boys
and girls, every one came forth.
Women with tears streaming down
their cheeks, tears of joy as they
contributed, and even men, old
men were seen with tears trickling
down their cheeks. Surely it look
ed as if a miracle had been per
formed. Pastor Lee stated after
wards that such a thing as "com
mon honesty" and "cheerful giv
ing" did exisi today. Before the
congregation departed for their
homes the full amount had been
raised and the Rose Hill Church
Rev. Mr. Lee came to Rose Hill
four years ago. He will leave the
Rose Hill - Wallace charge at the
end of this church year when the
Conference convenes on November
21st in Wilmington.
It is interesting to note that the
Rose Hill Church was built by an
other Mr. Lee, the Rev. T. W. Lee,
when he held the charge about ten
years ago. The edifice was built at
a cost of between $35,000 and $40,
000. To Dedicate Warsaw
