upon Judge AviW. Wilson for the
Invocation which was followed by
singing "America ta Beautiful" by

-. The Program Committee was
called upon which was composed
of Herman Taylor, Misses Virginia
Ward and Mary Lou WilkW Miss
Ward Introduced Dr. Rubin Hill of
the University of North Carolina
for a talk on "The Family".
Dr. Hill said that families go
through phases of realization of
strong family ties and othed phases
of loose ties. During some phases of
history it was necessary to consult
the heads of families before the
government could take any impor
tant steps or make any changes in
their policy. - .
There were times when families
engaged in feuds due to family loy
alty. ' -..i- : K ; -
In recent years family ties are
weaker due to social or economic
status. Some members of the fam
ily do not attain the same amount
of material wealth and therefore
are unable to live and move In the
same circle as other members. Fam
ily ties also break on account of
romantic love which causes them to
live long distances apart
Birth Control hat been respon
sible for breaking strong family
ties. Small families do not have the
strong tie because there Is not the
necessity for them to cooperate and
work together. 4 . ,
Dr. Hill Bays It Is ImMrtant for
us to decide whether or Lfc family
ties are worthwhile. He thinks It
is Important for children to know
who they are ami to know that they
belong to a large group than their
Immediate family. Family reunions
help develop this realization and
helps them to have a feeling of be
longing in the world.
He . suggested that the Wards
have something specific In .mind
that we want to accomplish, posP
lbly some social work. It Is Impor
tant that we stand together for
some purpose, t: : , .
The' Chairman then, called on
Horace Ward who Introduced Mr.
Sam Byrd.; He said that Mr. Byrd
is a lamous. actor ana tumor ana
mentioned that he has played In
several plays on Broadway inclu
ding "Tobacco Road", also wrote
"Small Town South". But best of
all he is "folks". He loves people
and mixes well with them. He also
wrote and directed . '.The Duplin
Story", a pageant shown In Kenans
ville, N. C.
Sam Byrd then told about page
ants and the places they are taking
in our country today. He spoke of
Paul Greerrr ""Lost Colony" and
"Faith of Our Fathers". Historical
ly, America Is entering into a sys-
Ltem of centennials and celebrating
luklu wiui yaacg'W.' -
The reason for pageant boom
is that they do not require trained
people, and they are good enter
tainment Pageant is the oldest
forms of telling a story, v
, The Duplin Story Is history. It
has told a story In 4 very enter
taining way. Mr. Byrd says that the
spirit of the people of Duplin as
they cooperated in putting on the
pageant is outstanding.
