Two Sundays, May 2 and May 8
have been designated as' Vacation
Bible School opportunities days for
the adult classes of the Warsaw
Baptist Sunday School. On 1 these
days the adults will make every
effort to meet the various needs of
the Bible School groups, 'i .":-.i
First need: Fruit juice and cookies
to be used in classroom teaching
periods on returning thanks 'and
general table manners. Used by the
Nursery and Beginner Departments
daily. ' ' . '.';.-....'
Second need: Lemonade or sqjme
copl drink for other groups as often
as the supply will allow. All groups
enjoy a daily refreshment .touch
and the Primaries need it
Pictures, etc. as listed in the local
church bulletin, cut out trimmed
and classified according to need.
In order that all adults interested
in sharing this part of the Bible
School preparations, the "refresh
ment shower" will be accepted on
the two Sundays. It takes a lot of
lemons (or Realemon) and sugar
to prepare refreshments for a lot
of young ones for eight school days.
The "ade" drinks are acceptable -if
donated in sufficient quantities.
Items will be collected in Sunday
A special refreshment committee
has been appointed to prepare the
drink and to secure assistants to
serve each day.
A lot of "hot dogs" with plenty
of accessories quickly disappeared
when 94 regular members of the
Warsaw Baptist Training Union fell
into chow line on Thursday even
ing. Meeting at the churchy to leave
at 6:30 the group filled several cars
and a truck to be led to the unan
nounced scene of action that was to
be the R. M. Herring picnic area.
There Mr. and Mrs. W. Y. Vann
had waiting -a well planned social.
The outstanding attraction, beyond
the food, was the music provided
by Mrs. W. W. Garner with the ac
cordion. Following the meal, all
encircled the campfire, sat on the
ground (benches provided for ad
ults) and enjoyed a long session
singing choruses and hymns.
This special social event climaxed
the steady increase in Training
Union attendance during the past
three months. The average atten
dance is about 80 but on several
Sunday evenings, more than 100
have been present.
Assistine Mr. and Mrs. Vann in
the preparation for the meal were
Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Hinson, Mr. and
Mrs. R. M. Herring. Helping serve
were Mr. and Mrs. James Franklin
Strickland, Mr. and Mrs. John Brad-
shaw. Mrs. Fred Revelle, Wilbur
Garner, and Mrs. Greenlaw.

Three thousand Boy Scouts are
expected, .to . converge on - Rocky
Mount at noon on the last day of
this month to bold their 15th annual
East Carolina Council Camporee. '
Some 350 patrol of boys from all
twenty of the .Eaitern Carolina
counties' that comprise the council
will board busses, trucks and any-
other available means of transpor
tation to be on hand for the giant
affair which will officially begin
at noon, oh April 30 and end at 10
o'clock the following Sunday morn
tog. 1 ,i ,
; At the Rocky Mount Fair Grounds
where the series of supervised con
tests and. events will be held, the
boys will pitch ; tents, cook beans
in tin cans and swap souvenirs
with their neighbors they met lest
year when the Camporee was held
at Tarboro. ' ' a ; " 1
Saturday morning they will be
judged as they cook breakfast-Qap-jacks
and Observe rules which in
sist that the flap-jacks be cooked
on one side, flipped over a five
foot string, caught In pan and eat
en by the cooker.
Later competitive events include
chair-building, pack rolling, Morse
code signaling by sound and a spe
cial mystery event yet to be reveaK
Elaborate preparations are being
made by the host town. Rocky
Mount to make this year's outing
the best the boys have ever had.
Arrangements nave been made
through the local Ford dealer for
the wholesale purchase of some six
tons of charcoal which will be sold
at cost to the boys. Universal char
coal cooking by the whole campor
ee will be a new twist to the culi
nary efforts of the boys though
there are sound reasons behind the
plan. Charcoal cooking will lessen
the fire hazard, eliminate smoke
and the gathering of wood which
is always scarce and invariably wet
A camporee representative said that
about 40c worth of charcoal should
be enough to take care of all the
cooking a boy will do during the
Another innovation at the camp
oree will be provided by the Com
munication Committee headed by
Richard Parker of Rocky Mount.
With the help of hjs committee,
Parker will place itno operation a
"Ham" radio sending and receiving
set. Though the boys may actually
receive or send messages should It
become necessary in cases of emer
gency, the set will primarily be ed
ucational. An elaborate inter-camp commu
nication and directory system has
been blue-printed whereby parents
may locate their boys simply by in
quiring at a well-designated head
quarters. At this information booth,
written directions w,ill be presented
to visiting parents and 30 foot flag-
topped poles marking
will be pointed out ,
Penn T. Watson! president of the
council, said, "I cannot imagine any
such camporee v staged : anywhere
where more careful planning has
been made by veteran - Scouters.
The camporee committee has done
superlative job that will set a
pattern for all i such future events.
"Bill Draper of Rocky Mount Is
the Camporee Chief who will actu
ally operate the monster gathering.
Elmer Daniel, of Nash County, has
done a wonderful job as the Camp
oree Quartermaster in handling the
multitudinous detail necessary for
successful - operation : which is ; all
the more important because it is
seldom noticed. ";4 . ';;"'
"Frank Meadows of Rocky Mount
and his camporee committee, drawn
from all quarters of the council, are
supervising every facet of the glam
orous week-end cavalcade of Scouts
to Rocky Mount which has long
been known Jor the good Scouts
that It produces." t
