'A LOOM: UP
. By: A. M. DAVIS
It certainly dots one good, to go
down street these spring mornings
and meet up with one or more of
the young people of our town who
are home from college for the um-
. mer vacation.' It is invigorating to
watch their happy smiles and hear
their laughter and chatter as they
go their carefree way of conversing
with acquaintances in their sojourn
into the realms of higher learning.
: They have worked, they have play
ed and they ' have passed their
year's work and they are happy
and are deservlngly so. Many of
the college students and high
school students have obtained em
ployment with the produce market
and are. happily going about their
work like a teamipf veterans.
. j ; , ; , .', t
'As 1 have said before In this
column,' this to 'omV of the finest
group pf young people in this town
at the present , time that I have
ever known. I have lived In a num
ber of other towns and in my news
paper work have worked, with quite
a number of young people, I have
watched the . behavior of young'
people to some extent and can still
say that ours are an exception. I
can assure you that I am not alone
lq my conception. Others make the
same statement often.
Some of us- can recall only a few
years ago when there was a group
of voune people here that gave
. considerable trouble doing little
mischievous, things, , All, of It was
uncalled for and we wondered at
the time, why they did those things.
They also seemed to be a Jolly and
"carefree group not unlike , those
here today. y.
Perhaps we are going through a
cycle that will in itself bring us
this kind of young people but I am
Inclined to think otherwise and
hope otherwise as well. j I think
many of our grown-ups are to be
thanked: for the change that has
taken place. This group- of grown
ups are divided into several cate
gories; the ' churches, : the schools,
the eluba and the homes, and they,
whether they think and Intend it
or not, are working together better
today than they have ever done
before or as lona back as I have
known anything about the town.
Before Murphy Smith and Den
nis Kinlaw came to the Presbyter
ian and Methodist churches re
spectfully,, and later Mr. Gibbs to
the Baptist church, we had good
men in charge-In eacn or tnese
churches but they did not seem to
hnvf the knack with the young
people the present pastors have.
Mr. Smith and Mr. Kiniaw are com
young men and they realized that
in order to carry- on God's work
successfully in a church one had
to start at the very foundations of
the church and build upon it some
thing that will stand. They real
ized that the young people consti
tuted a major part ot me zounaa
tion. This is where they started
and they are successfully building
not, nly the churches but the town
as well.- Mr. Gibbs of the Baptist

phnwh hns .not.. been with US as
long as Mr. Smith and Mr.. Kinlaw
but it is cerUln that all the splen
did: .Baptist, young people are not
the result; of the Methodist and
Presbyterian influence. After hear
in a Rev Addison Hosea of the Epis
copal church.jdeliveK the. address
to the graduating class. a week or
or so ago: we .can assure i ourselves
that he also is greatly interested
in young people. .,. t . .,,
in the schools we have seen come
to pass many things that were not
here only a few years ago. We have
a small high school ana .are corcea
to nnera te as such.' but the per
sistence of Mr. FoutsJn bringing
in nntatnniflnff athletic teams in
football, baseball and basketball
are and is to De commenaea. t ooi-
ball was unknown here until re
cently. Many of the local people
had never seen a game until tne
hich school fielded a team. Mr.
Fonts sets a lot of criticism for
nnt ivinnlnff everv same our teams
play but I would like R see some
of those who are so quick to criti
cize Dlaced in his shoes. At the
same time we are winning a goodly
portion of the games piaye ano
thp sfhnnl is turninz out boys and
girls who are making outstanding
records in college. Winning games
is not the sole purpose of athletics.
The mnldins of character is the
main objeotive and in this respect
we seem to be gaining ground.
The T.ions are sDOnsors to the
Boy Scouts of Faison and the work
of the scouts are well enough
known by all of us as to not Justi
fy a discussion at this time. I do
think the women are falling down
a little in not sponsoring a. Girl
Scout troop. It would mean a great
deal to the young girls if such an
organization were formed.
In the homes wonderful cooper
ation with the various groups is
being experienced. Many of the
parents are members of one or
more of the various groups sponsor
ing activities for young people and
quite naturally their cooperation
It all adds up to the fact that
we have a fine group at the pres
ent time and It is up to us to con
tinue to keep them that way. It
will mean a lot to the town in years
to come. Some of them will never
go away to college and many of
those who do may come back here
to live if we can continue to make
it attractive for them. We have a
fine little town now but there are
a number of things we can do that
will make It a great deal better
If we will only put our hearts into
