The Little City WUh
E. C. Expositon
to Open Afeaday
Some of the Possibilities of the
Oto North State and the Ad
vance She is Making.
Kinston, N. C. April 3rd.?The part
that the State government is playing
in the advancement of North Carolina
as an industrial and agricultural com
monwealth and a fine place in which
to live will be vividly told at the Ex
position here shortly. Three or four
of the more important of the official
agencies will be represented in the
imposing display . of exhibits. Hie
Exposition is to open April "5th, to
continue one week, and is under the
auspices of a sectional commercial
-?-?-?? :? 4C
organization s*rr?nig w nviui w
olina's 100 counties, the Eastern Car
olina Chamber of Commerce. George
C. Royall, of Goldsboro, is the presi
dent, and Newell C. Bartlett, of Kin
ston, secretary-manager of the Cham
ber of Commerce. This city is the
Exposition seat by virtue of competi
tive effort to secure the big show.
The large scale of the exhibition is
assumed. It will snugly fill a building
than]which there is no larger in this
part of the State. Its importance is
evidenced by the interest the state
departments are taking in it, and the
fact that the railroads are offering
special rates. For instance, noond
trip tickets will be sold from any Vir
ginia or North Carolina point on the
Atlantic Coast Line railroad for the
price of one and one-half fares.
The North Carolina Geological and
Economic Survey will offer an exhibit
dealing with the State's resources.
This body is regarded as one of the
moat efficient of its kind in the coun
try, and its archives are a storehouse
of wonderful information dealing with
the developed and undeveloped riches
of the State. The Extention Service,
which in its operations comes in con
tact with the life and progress of a
large proportion of the Tar Heel pop
ulation, will present an exceptionally
large exhibit The Extention Service
where in the nation?statistics-'prove
it Because the health, forces have
, so aggressively assailed them, many
communicable diseases prevalent a de
cade ago have become almost un
? known in many of the counties. The
ofidal exhibits will be among the
most interesting of the many displays
hi the Exposition HalL Entertain
ment features in the Exposition audi
. torium space include Anna. Case, so
prano; Sen. Pat Harrison and others.
Cervone's Band has been engaged for
the entire week.
