HONORING THE ROTARY
ANNS AND TEACHERS
One of the most brilliant affairs of
the early fait season was a banquet
given Tuesday evening at the Rotary
club room by Rotarians Alfred Moore
and John Joyner in compliment to
the Rotary Anns and teachers of
Faraivilte high school. '
The delightful dinner was served at
7:30 o'clock, covers being laid for 66.
The color scheme used throughout
was yellow and white. 4
Ah entertaining program had been
arranged including a novel way ot
"recogmUfcig*' partners. Rotarian
Jasper Shackleford acted as toas toas
ter and led in the singing of a num
ber of songs. After the invocation
by Rotarian John Thome, President
John Holmes gave a cordial welcome
to the teauhers and Rotary Anns (?).
The roS call by the Rotary1'Anns
who introduced themselves, their hus
bands and the teachers proved quite
laughable since some of them forgot
their husbands and their own names.
After dinner the toastmaster ex
plained how, when the ' educational
committee had placed in his hands a
program covering several months and
^including addresses from every mem
ber of the club, he had, as his cus-~
torn is, notified the speakers about
three hours before the meetings.
John and Alf always pretended that
they could not deliver an address on
short notice and finally said they
[ would find some way in which, to ex
press themselves that would prove'
more eloquent than mere words. This
; was Alf and John'* "eloquent expres
sion" and the toastmaster bade- the
guests rise and sing the following
song to their glory: -
"John and Alf* (Tune, A aid Lang
?$? i r : rv -
Whenever we met Alf and Johnny
Walking down the street,;
We always smile in happy style,
Because they're friends we greet
Barbecue, and chicken, too,
Together with the rest
Surpass all dinners that we're seen,
I And make of this the best I
Our hosts then, as good Rotarians
Sorely set the jfcce,
And prove that Service, good and tree
Will win in fife's hard race.
w E- )'r
>Bria hieing Leap Year, the single ?
guests win-invited to teH^j^ they
had'never married, the Rotarians
promising to pass their reasons on
to |he eligiblemen in the city. Misses
Robinson, Case, Jerome md Perlrinap;
did this in a most admirable way and
without the slightest hesitation: Ir
[ving Morgan arose and read a jjjary
supposedly lost_by one If the hosts
expressing in a moat emphatic war
why he had not married and why he
never wo^d, while John Thorne read
an advertisement handed him by the
other host, advertising for a wife.
Thin pftved most enjoyable. - P" I
The last event was a spelling I
match conducted by Rotarian George
Wheeler with the teachers and Beta
nans formisg-oppwite sides and the
| Rotary Anns acting as judges. This
was toofcen up by the riot of laugh
ter following the attempt of John
Joyner to-spell "fatVwhlefc word be
apparently had never fear? before., I
The delightful affair- dosed with
the singing of "School Days."

when the automobile in which they
were riding wju> hit by a shifting en

at the cotton milk crossing,, just about
.a mile from Greenville.
At the time of the terrible accident
the train which consisted of an en
gine and two bo* cars, was headed
west while the automobile with its
two occupants was coming east Ac
cording to statements made by peo
ple who saw the car and train before
the accident, the way was dear with
nothing to obstruct the view of the
driver of the cdr. >?
- After striking the auto the train
kept on its ,^ay for several feet be
fore the engineer was aware that he
had struck the car, being informed]
by the fireman that tr car was under
the train. _ : - *1

K.rouse seeing mat tup trtun no*

and cleared the tracks to safety.
Young Dixon was not so fortunate
and for 50 yards his body was dragged
with the auto, before it fell from the
wreckage.- When he was reached it
was found that he wafc dead. His
head was crushed and hi? body bad

accident state that the engineer gave
