Faison Enjoys Old Fashioned
[ Fourth Of July Gelebration
Friday, July 5, the Faison Recrea
tion Program high-lighted its acti
vities with a Family Fun Time Cele
bration. The celebration was held
on the Faison Elementary School
Playground, in which children, par
ents, grandparents, relatives, fri
ends, Junior Chamber of Commerce
members and their wives partici
pated from 2:00 - 10:00 p. m. This
was under the leadership of Miss
Susan Clifton, director and sponsor
ed by the Faison Junior Chamber
To begin the program, proudly
the primary children (grades 1-3)
displayed their skill with varied ex
ercises using the balance beams
and walking cans. Self-testing activ
ities featured the Elephant, Crab
and Bear walk, frog stand, Coffee
grinder, measuring worm, etc. Oth
er activities exhibited the correct
way to walk, run, skip, hop, jump,
leap and slide, which are the natur
al patterns for natural growth of
Next came the enthused mothers
and wives of the Jaycees to com
pete with the girls from grades 4-8
in a most exciting Soft Ball game.
Sadly the girls had to admit their
defeat to their hard working op
ponents; in spite of the fact, some
of the ladies had never played a
Soft Ball Game before, with a score
of 60-6. It was hard to judge who
worked hardest for high score. Fun
and enthusiasm was the keynote of
this activity. It has been rumored
these ladies would like to form a
On hand for the next event was
the Jaycees to contest with the
Little Leagues in Base Ball. Pitch
ers for the Leaguers really passed
the balls so that the size of the man
at the bat made no difference to
him. It was obvious some of the
men could profit by a little practice
too. Imagine the Leagues thrill
when the end came the score fav
ored them by 3 points 16-13.
While the ladies were gathering
the picnic supper, which they
spread on tables under the coolness
of the beautiful Oak Trees, the men
and children enjoyed games of Bad
minton,, horseshoe, and volley ball.
After the group gathered around
the long supper table, Miss Clifton
presnted to the group Dr. and Mrs.
Clinton Strong and their three
children from Greenville. Dr.
Strong is a Professor in the Physi
cal Education Department of East
Carolina College. Miss Clifton also
expressed her appreciation to the
sponsoring organization and comm
unity at large for their splendid co
operation with her in the operation
of the Recreation Program.
After enjoying a bountiful supper,
the group was invited to another
area of the playground where they
were led in folk and action songs.
Persons over fifty years of age
were permitted to be excused from
the action which involved squat
ting jumping, etc. Apparently no
one had reached that age, inspite of
the many gray headed persons pre
By this time Miss Clifton "had the
gymnasium hk - readiness for" folk
and square dancing, for the remain
der of the evening, Here the group
learned and participated in such
dances that will be remembered for
a long time.
The theme for the Summer Re
creation Program is "You Cannot
Stay Physically Fit and Sit." Evi
dences indicate this is taking root
in the Faison Community as approx
imately 200 people enjoyed the
Family Fun Time Celebration.

Congresman David N. Henderson
today announced that he has nomi
nated Mr. Tommie F. Bostic, Sr.,
for the position of permanent Post
master of Beulaville. Henderson
stressed the fact that his selection
of Bostic in no way reflected any
lack of confidence in the other eli
gibles for the position. "Unfortun
ately, it was a case of three good
men available, but only one vacan
cy." Henderson stated.
The formal appointment of Port- , >/
masters is made by the President ,
and they are confirmed by the Sen-;
