Bad Check Passer
On September 22nd a man repre
senting himself to be Jesse Jack
son, a salesman, sailed at the store
of Edwin Register on Highway 11
below Keriansville. Mr. Register
was out at the time and the man
was told by Mrs. Register, who was
in the store, that Mr. Register did
all the buying. Jackson then bought
some gas and a few other items
and gave Mrs. Register a check for
thirty-five dollars, made payable
to Jesse Jackson and drawn on the
account, of J. O. Moore, Branch
Banking and Trust Company, Kin
ston. To allay any fears of Mrs.
Register as to the worth of the
check he wrote his license number
on the check. The check was later
returned by the bank marked "No
Account". Mrs. Register brought
the check to Magistrate C. B. Sit
terson who drew a warrant for both
J, O. Moore and Jesse Jackson. The
auto license number, which Jack-
son had written on the check so
thouehtfullv and honestlv. was civ-
en to Patrotman L. M. Harton who
radioed Patrol Station at Elizabeth
town and asked them to contact
Raleigh and get the home address
of Jesse Jackson. The report from
Raleigh -showed that the license
had been issued to William Hen.y
Harris, Bell Cross, N. C, for a 1937
Chrysler. The care driven by Jesse
Jackson and which displayed the
license number issued to Harris
was a Ford. Patrolman Harton then
radioed a patrolman stationed at
Elizabeth City, N. C, who contacted
Mr. Harris. Mr. Harris reported that
his Chrysler had been wrecked and
junked some time ago. He knew
nothing of the license tags.
Mrsr Register reports that Jesse
Jackson is slender, jveighs about
150 pounds, height about 5 foot
ten inches, between 28 and 30 years
old, has brown hair and very neatly

Ernest Carroll, Negro, of Watha,
Pender County, who had been sum
moned here as a witness in a case
to be tried in Superior Court here
this week was caught drinking
whiskey in the basement of the
Court House during court. He was
caught by sheriff's deputies Perry
Smith and Charlie Wagstaff, glvsn
a hearing before a Magistrate, case
presented to the Grand Jury, which
returned a True Bill, tried in Su
perior Court before Judge Henry
L. Stevens, found guilty by the
Judy and sentenced to nine months
on the roads all on the same day.
The charge was possession and
j transporting non-tax paid whiskey
This proves conclusively that the
Court House is a dangerous place
to drink whiskey in - especially
while court is in session. Imagine
yourself - just tilting the cup that
cheers to quaff the elixir that "robs
today of past regrets and future
fears" and having it snatched from
yojir drooling lips by a Deputy
Sheriff. Then finding yourself in
a dizzy whirl of court procedure
ending with you behind bars for
nine months. If "Stone walls do not
a prison make, nor iron bars a
cage" - you'll think that they come
uncomfortably close to it.
Here is how it happened: - On
Monday Carroll was seen by the
janitor in the basement of the court
house drinking whiskey. The jani
tor reported the fact to the Sheriff's
Office and was told to report to
the sheriff if it happened again on
Tuesday. On Tuesday morning the
janitor reported that Carroll had
hidden some whiskey under the
stairs in the court house basement.
The whiskey was fouoj) by the Jam--
tor ana' the deputies. Deputies
Smith and Wagstaff then decided
to watch for Carroll to visit his
bottle. Later Carroll started down
the basement steps, saw one of the
deputies and went and hid in an
automobile, lie was later pointed
Ottt. to them by the janitor and the
arrest made. "Nine months on the
roads" said Judge Henry L. Stev

A mighty oak lias fallen; a great loss has been sustained. Mr. Gene :
Clarke's passing has left a great hole in the lives of the citizenship of s
Warsaw, to say nothing about the loss sustained by his immediate family,
the Presbyterian Church and his many close friends.
Gene was a fiiend to mankind, he knew no strangers and his ever
present smiles and words of encouragement meant more to the masses
than words can portray. He was pastor of the Presbyterian Church in
Warsaw and Bowden. but his itleaj and thoughts were in no manner:
restricted to these two congregations. He was a pastor to all creeds, all
colors,;,and all stations in life.

was suffering from an incurable disease, but he went about his work
without confplainitig or without the slightest remorse. He administered :

forever in the hearts of those that he loved and loved him. He loved

Warsaw and this section. Several times he said that he wanted to live.,
and die here, that when he finished his work here, he wanted to move :
to a little home and finish his life in the town he loved and amid. his
Truly a great man has passed away. His memory will live a long
time. No greater monument could be erected for him than for Warsaw
to follow his teachings and precepts.
A WORLD'S CHAMPION
The dentist's drill and the flashing baton of a drum major both
have ways of making you Mt up and take notice, but it's seldom you
ever think of the two at the same time.
But for Dr. Geo.re R. lihuades. 27 year-old Kansas City dentist.,
twirling a baton not only brought him seven championships, but it
also brought him the necesnv cold cash to go through dental school.
On October 29 he come?, to Raleigh, N. C. for a demonstration of
his ability with the baton. The young dentist will be a part of the en
tertainment at hali-time when two eastern Carolina Orphanage foot
ball teams square off in Slate College's Riddick Stadium for a contest
