Urges Carolina Made
Goods For Christmas
Christmas Shoppers Will Be Fur
nished a List of Articles Made
In This State.
In furtherance of its efforts to
acquaint the people with and to
encourage the use of North Caro
lina-made goods by North Caro
linians, the state department of
conservation and development has
been distributing to merchants of
the state specially prepared lists of
"North Carolina-made articles for
the Holidays," The list Includes
wearing apparel and accessories,
things for the home, toys, books, and
other articles designed to bring
pleasure to their users.
A statement accompanying the
list points out thut Christmas shop
pers are going to be buying useful
things this year hiu! that “North
Carolina-made goods, being largely
of this type, will make a strong ap
peal to the buyer. All the home
made goods bought by our home
merchants will give manufacturing
plants additional working time,
create “more wages und more buy
ing power. Tills will give everybody
a more cheerful outlook and serve
to loosen tip the purse strings all
In releasing the statement Direc
tor Harrelson stated that it was the
hope of ills department that mer
chants would secure ample stocks
of North Carolina-made goods il
they did not already have them on
their shelves, and that they would
give prominence to them in their
show windows, on their specialty
counters, and in their advertising,
aiuj that tflelr origin of these goods
would be plainly indicated by ap
propriate show cards and tags
“North Carolinians, then should
make it a point to buy as many of
these home-made things os passi
ble both for the use of themselves
and family and for gifts to friends
within and without the state, and I
believe that our people will take
pride In doing this if the goods are
railed to their attention,” continued
the director. "Money spent for
things made in North Carolina
keeps factory wheels turning. it
pays more wages and thereby
creates more purchasing power.
Tilts keeps retail activity brisk T»
fact, it helps all business, manufac
turing, wholesale and retail. More
over, neither the retailer nor the
customer sacrifices quality, style or
anything else in buying things made
here in the state. Our furniture
ha iery, silk, cotton, rayon, garment
and other factories make as good
or better products than do the fac
tories of other state, and certainly
the money we send out of the state
doesn't stimulate any more business ■

Head Talks Merger
Greenville, s. C.—Dr. W J, Mc
Glothlin, president of the Southern
Baptist convention expressed the
opinion that pending proposals for
a union of the Southern Baptist
church and the Northern Baptist
church are unlikely to advance to
a stage "beyond fraternal co-opera
tion and confidence."
Dr. McGlOthlln, who i.. also pres
ident of Furman university hen,
said the executive committee of his
denomination met in Nashville,
Term., last Tuesday and appointed
a sub-committee to confer with n
like body from Northern Baptist
church on the unification proposal.
A dispatch from Chicago said
the executive committee of the
northern church had already voted
in favor of merger proposals.

High Point, Dec, 14.—Rev. J. D
Barnette, former treasurer and as

Baptist church here, exchanged a
confession of the misappropriation
of church funds and two notes, tot
alling a face value of $869.97, for
the forgiveness of his congregation
at the service of that church yes

tion papers; the congregation of

accept them. ,

the amount of $869 87.

tional meeting yesterday when Rev
George T, Tunstall, pastor , ex

swept over the 1.000 present and it
was the sense of the meeting that
with tire two notes in hand and the
humble spirit of the confessed man
before them, the thing to do Is to
forget the Incident.
It was indicated by Mr. Barnette
that he will not again attempt tc
do church work until the two notes
have been satisfied in full.

Typist Refused Big
Break With Reynolds
How one man missed a great: op
portunity was |the theme of an ir
tercsting little story Dr. D. Clay
Lilly told at Reynolds Temple Sun
day iliernoon as he was speaking
on the program of the memorial
service being held in memory of the
late Richard J, Reynolds by the
colored congregation that worships
there. Dr. Lilly knew Mr. Reynolds
very well and can tell many a fas
cinating .story of his llie.
• In the early years of his career
Mr. Reynolds was his own stenog
rapher and typist, only lie did both
these processes in longhand. One
while in New York he saw a type
writer It attracted his attention ; *
once and he interviewed man who
was using it. This man explain* x
the proce s of dictating letter.,
which saved the dictator a great
deal of time.
Mr. Reynolds offered the typist n
job and an interest In his business
if he would come to Winston. The
man inquired^ life size ol Winston
and contrasting it with New York
declined the pioneer tobacco lead
er’s offer. Whether thp man lived
to see what a mistake he made, Dr.
Lilly did not know. But that he re
jected a magnificent opportunity
everyone who knows anything about
the success Mf. Reynolds achieved
can very well appreciate.
