Don't forget the Kjwanis Club pancake
supper at the Gibson cafeteria tonight
(Thursday) from 4:30 until 7:30 o'clock.
Any Kiwanian will sell you a ticket or
you can purchase them at the door.
While on the subject of the pancake
supper it comes to mind that Israel Mann
was supper chairman for many years.
Israel would call milk, pancake mix,
syrup and sausage people requesting they
donate their product to the supper. As
most of you know, Israel is of the Jewish
faith. He called Jesse Jones of the fame
sausage and gave him his song and dance
about donating for the good of the
community. He must have thought he
wasn't getting through so he told Mr.
Jones that everyone in Raeford like his
sausage and that he (Israel) thought it was
the best he had ever tasted, Mr. Jones
replied, "You are a d- liar, Israel."

We would like to take this opportunity

work he did for us in covering the
football games. We appreciate it very
Lucy Grey Peebles, former reporter,
was by the office last Friday. She said
that she was really retired and enjoyed
doing nothing. Some people have it made.
Rena Smith called this week and said
that Cadet Paul Currie, son of Mr. & Mrs.

The letter below is self explanatory:
This letter is the last I am going to
write you for awhile. I know you want to
? hear from me, but I usually talk too
1 do not know who the concerned ex -
Hoke High student was that wrote about
the band; nevertheless, I am proud of
him, and I hope he is one of my
graduates. I do not disagree with him, but
I think an explanation is necessary.
The Superintendent and County Board
have been extremely generous with all of
our programs in the Hoke County
Schools. In fact, I would stack the
support our school receives against any
school in the state. Now back to the basic
issue, we do have support for our athletic
programs, and it does come from the gate
receipts which are used to buy our
equipment for the various sports. The
County Board pays the supplements;
oiherwise, we could not exist. All of the
boys who play on our athletic teams
furnish their own shoes which cost from
SI8 to S22. They also pay a fee of S3.50
for personal items.
If the band puts on a program, the
money received from the program goes
into the band fund. We are planning to
spend 51,000.00 this year on band
uniforms. This money will come from the
general school fund.
Another music program of ours thai
has no equal in the stale is our chorus and
chorale, and they must have support also.
When they put on a program, this money
is used strictly for iheir benefit. We
purchased a shell for Iheir use this vear
that cost S2,500.00.
As you can see, there is really a greai
deal more to the support thai we give our
programs than meets the eye, and if
anyone would like to know about them,
please feel free to come by the school. We
don't have a thing to hide; in fact, we are
glad to talk about them. After all, it is
your money. You have a right to know
how it is spent.
City Says No

homes inside the city or within a one ?

City and county officials met with
Highway Commissioner Charles Dawkins

time, Dawkins said that there was not
sufficient mileage in the county to
