Policy On Inspection And Rating
Of Private Clubs, Churches Etc.
PRICE TEN CENTS
A number of questions have re
cently been raised by local Sani
tarians as to their authority to In
spect and rate private clubs, such
as, country clubs, Shrine clubs,
Women's Clubs and other such es
tablishments which are regularly or
occasionally serving meals in con
nection with club activities. The
question had also been raised as to
whether or not the State or local
health department had legal au
thority to enter such clubs for the
purpose of making sanitary inspec
tions. The question, therefore, was
presented to the State Attorney
General for his opinion as to wheth
er or not such places were covered
iy State Cafe Law and as to just
what our authority would be in con
nection with the inspection of such
establishments.

The following ordinance has been
massed by the Board of Commis
sioners of Beulaville to begin Sep
tember 12, 1954:
That all businesses operating in
the Town limits of Beulaville shall
-lose each Sunday morning during
Church services (Sunday School
and Preachirig) from " 10:00 a. . m.
til 12:00 noon.
All businesses not co-operating
with said ordinance are subject to
law.

members of the Board of Commis-

L Postal-savings deposits earn' in

year, except in the State of Mlssi

1V4 percent
J. ' Postal-savings certificates in
fixed denominations are issued as
evidence 'of the deposit of money
In a postal-savings account, and
whenever possible a patron should
accept a single certificate covering
the amount of the deposit
' S. Deposits made before Septem
ber: 1, 1954, will continue to earn
simple interest until the certificates
representing these deposits are sur
rendered. 4. Interest will be compounded an
nually1 on whole-dollar amounts on
all deposits represented by postal
savings certificates issued on or af
ter September 1, 1954.
5. A Deposit made on anr day of
a month begins to earn interest on
the first day of the next succeeding
month.
. 8. When certificates are surrend
ered between annual periods or for
periods of less than 1 year, .simple
'interest will be allowed quarterly
on deposits. . ' : 'f
7. A depositor may surrender , his
postal-savings certificate at any
. time for cash or for the collection
'" of interest However, since inter
est is compounded annually, it is
advantageous to the depositor to re
frain from surrendering his certifl
1 cater for withdrawal of interest If
interest only is collected on surrend
ered certificates, the deposit will
not again begin to earn interest un
til the first of the next month.
0, A depositor, if necessary; may
, surrender his postal-savings certlfi

so because of Infirmity or other
' valid reasons. (Consult the postmas

8. A depositor acknowledges the
full payment of the amount stated
i to postal-savings certificate and
all Interest due on this amount at
' the time he signs bis name on the
face of the certificate and surrend
ers It to the office of issue.
Statute 72-46, has this to say with
regard to the t ype of establishments
iver which the North Carolina State
Board of Health has jurisdiction.
"It seems to me that the type of
establishment over which the North
Carolina State Board of Health lias
urisdictien is limited to those es--ibl'shments
who serve the public
in general and who solicit and in
vite the general public to become
their patrons and who hold them
selves out as ready to serve any
member of the general public with'
out distinction. It is my opinion that
the North Carolina State Board of
Health does not have jurisdiction
over or authority -to inspect and
make sanitary grades for private
clubs who limit their services and
their preparation and sales of foods
to select and exclusive groups who
are members of such clubs and
their invited guests. Such clubs are
not open to the public at large and
I do not fhmk that the above quot
ed statute Is sufficiently explicit
and broad enough in its scope to
cover the private club type of es
tablishment. The same, would be
true as to churches serving dinners
and food to their members, or to
occasionally serve a luncheon or
dinner for a civic group."
We. have not attempted to enum
erate all the different types of clubs,
but believe that tha general prin
ciple as stated above will assist you
in determining which placet should
be inspected. We might summarize
the above briefly as follows:
1 Private clubs, such as. Country
Pubs, catering only to their mem
bership and invited guests, do not
come under the provision of the
law.
2 Churches serving occasional
meals to their membership ,or civic
clubs, do not come under provision
of the law.
5 So called private clubs which
do not restrict their service to
members and their Invited guests,
but which cater to the general pub
lic would be covered by the State
Cafe Law and Regulations.

(After Vacatln. lines)
By BESS HTNSON HTNES
I took the trail of silence
through the ancient trees again,
with a longing need to rest,
grow peaceful and regain
my Greater Self . . I took the trail,
brown-needled, sweet and dry
above, the timeless murmuring.
the deep Sequoia sky . . .
Walking on, I grew serene,
pausing now and then
to ponder on the majesty
of God . . . the ways of men:
on how it is a man may grow
away from his own soul
how Nature kindly takes him back
and gently makes him Whole.
I walked until the slanting rays
it evening sunlight fell,
lighting fern and giant log
in proud, primeval spell . . .
I pondered on the peace that lies
oeyond our mortal plane;
t took the trail of silence
hrough the ancient trees again.

LaGrange Tonight
By MARY TAYLOR
The Warsaw Tigers will go after
their first victory of the year to
night when they play LaGrange
here. Warsaw tied its first game
against Richlands, 0-0, Monday
night. The defense and offense both
should be much improved after
having one game under their belts
since the Timers have many inex
perienced players this year.
The starting line up for the Tig
ers tonight is anybody's guess at
this time as Coaches Bill Taylor
and Dick Kaleel mix their players
to make a more effective combi
nation to face the LaGrange foot
ballers. Johnny Godbold who was out
Monday night with a bad ankle is
expected to see action at guard to
night. Bobby Braswell, H. C. Phillips
and Larry Taylor, all freshmen
showed up well against Richlands.
The Tiger squad is expected to
be at full strength for LaGrange;
Jimmy Godbold, a freshman tackle
is the only player out due to in
jury; he broke his arm last week
in practice and will be out for sev
eral weeks.
Game time is 8 p. m. at the War
saw High School football park. Sea
son tickets will be on sale at the
gate. Tentative plans have been
set up for season ticket holders to
have reserved seats.

Experience always pays except in
cases where a man has had so much
he can't be taught anything.
It isn't the size of the bankroll,
but the size of hi. heart, that de
termine, the rise of a man.
The man who steadies the ladder
ts often jmore of a success than the
man who climbs to the t op.
It teem, that some people are
never satisfied until they have
trouble, that drive them to drink.
The following is a portion of a
leter received here from Bobby In
grham who is in Spain. The letter
was written from Barcelona, Spain:
I had the most unusual experience
yesterday, so I though I might as
well tell you about it I still ain't
sure just what it was, that it was.
Well now, I was walking up this
street in this here city of Barce
lona which is in Spain, when I saw
this whole group of pensile a going
in this here soup bowl like place,
so I just follored along just to aee
what it was that was a happesdn.
Iwent right on in, after arguing
with this here hombre. I daol knew
what it was that he said, but I
gave him 20 pesatas, so I could gm
on inside
Well, when I got there, I found
all these people a sitting,around this
here dirt ring. I sat there for s
while kind of puzzled like, when
this man stands up and starts a
blowin on this here great long
horn, real loud like. Then this bog
door on the side of the ring opens
up and out charges this great big
black bull at snorting and a bell
ering. Now, all around this here
ring are seven or eight guys all
dressed up like Louie XTV and
when they see this black bull all
a snortin and runing around in that
ring, they run out there with these
great big red like scarves and start
prancing and flinging them giant
handkerchiefs around. Now all this
time, the ole bull is watching, while
he goes ahuffing around in the
ring and all of a sudden he makes
l bee line for one of those there
guys, picadores, I think someone
called um. Now this picador, he
don't do nuthin but stand there
awavin his red rag at that boll as
he comes chargin in. Well, now.
all of a sudden' this male cow nils)
at that rag, which this an
up cowboy is a flingin
goes right on by. Well, when this
happens, all these here Spaniaedh
start a clappin their hands and hel
lerin to beat the band. But I dent
think the picador thought ftmwitrai
of all the yellin because he Just
stands there with his nose stuck:
up in the air. Maybe that bull just. '
eaant smell just right
Now aU these here, picadbr; gaft '
a turn at a waving them rags at the ,
bun and he just get. aiadder'asal
madder all the time. Altar awhile ,
this boy scout stands up again and '
commences a blowin on that tTin
big, long horn and two doors
up in the side of the ring and out
comes two fellers a rid in horses
and a carryin big long spears. And
vou should have seen them horses;
they were all padded up and looked
like they was from "days of ok!.
when knights were bold". Well,
this don't grab that cow just right
so he goes a galloping over and one
of the fellers commences flingin
that spear in the ole bull, back am
til the blood comes. I heard scene,
one say, that this is to make the
cow even madder. Well sir, he
looked to me as if be was mad
enough. But anyway, them fellers
on them armored mules keep a
jabbin away for awhile. Then thia
here boy scout blow on that hem
agin and them fellers go saltopte
away leaving the bun just as mad
and ornery a. he can be.
Now, out prances this here guy
who looks like he', the local Bap-
tist preacher. He's all dressed up
something like the picador but 1
heard somebody say that be was
the Matador.. Well, picador, mata

well they wouldn't have cotcned '
a prancin around in that ring-
with that mad cow a snorting like
he was. But this here matador don't
seem at all excited about the situ

that ferocious beast which is like
wise eyeballin the matador.
Now this feller has one of them
bright colored rags too and he
holds it out so the ole bull can get
a glance at It I guess that cow
didn't like what he seen cause he
comes a charging over and the mat
ador has to jump a bit to get out
of his way. Well now, I didn't
know exactly what was a going to
happen next. All of a sudden this
here matador ups and palls out a
long sword, which I didn't thinks
was fair to the bull because he
didn't have nuthin. Well anyways
after him and the bull chased onj
another for a few minutes, the mat
ador runs up and a jams this sword
into the bull just as hard as he can.
Now, with this here sword a stick
ing in him, the ole bull runs around
for awhile and finally drops over
dead and the whole congr"gatii
starts a yelling and a clapping their
hands again. I guessed they was go
ing to barbecue the bull now -ut
they didn't. They Just start-d !i
over again, with another (row
