BIBLE THOUGHT FOR WEEK
THE TREE OF LIFE: Blessed
are they that do his commandments,
that they may enter in through the
gates into the city. Revelation 22,
THEY'LL BE MISSED
It is with deep regret that we say
goodby to the Dempseys. Rev. D. S.
Dempsey, who for the past three
years has served as pastqr of the
Hertford Baptist Church, has not
only been a good shepherd of his own
flock, but has been a valuable citizen
of the community. Not only will his
own congregation miss his ministry,
but friends among all denominations
with whom he has mingled in good
fellowship will feel the loss of a
This is aso true of Mrs. Dempsey,
who has proven the old adage that if
one would have friends he must show
himself fri'idly. Her natural charm
of manner coupled with an evident
desire to be of service to those with
whom she comes in contact has en
deared her to the people of Hert
ford and her loss will be keenly felt
by the many friends she has made.
As these two pass on to a new
field of service they are followed by
good wishes, in which The Perquim
ans Weekly heartily joins, for sue
cess and joy.
NO SMALL JOB
Established in 1776, Louisburg
College, owned and operated by the
North Carolina Methodist Confer
ence has started an unique program
of education, closely modeled after
Berea College, Kentucky, in which
all the worthy students who need
work can get it; in which industrial
and vocational education is stressed;
in which every one learns by doing,
But whether or not this institution
which for a hundred and sixty years
has .' carried on can continue its con
structive program, depends on wheth
er or not sufficient funds can be
raised at once.
A ten-weeks campaign, known as
The Forward Movement, to raise the
necessary amount, is nearing its
close. On August 8, which is a week
from next Sunday, an offering in all
of vthe churches of the Conference
will be taken.
The-situation is so critical that
unless $100,000 can be raised by this
time Louisburg College must close its
doors and hand the keys over to the
creditors by the first of the year.
To raise a hundred thousand dol
lars in ten jtfeekg is so small under
taking, even in a territory where
there are 723 Methodist churches;
But if the Methodists throughout the
State are as loyal as the Methodists
in Perquimans County we believe it
will be done.
After, weathering the storms of
more than a century and a half an
institutfon. which has made the con
tribution which Louisburg College
has made to the State ought to be
saved. The Perquimans Weekly be
lieves that the loyal Methodists will
see to it that it is saved.

People In Section Asked to Be On
Lookout For Small Gadgets Re
leased In Raleigh
John J. Murphy, meteorologist in
charge of the weather bureau at
Norfolk, has released information
that residents in this section may
have an opportunity to assist in a
project for investigating the upper
air conditions in a hurricane if any
occurs this season, which will be
undertaken as a co-operative effort
of the United States Weather Bureau
and the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, and which is expected to
give valuable information regarding
the structure of hurricanes.
The project calls for the release
during, a hurricane, at Raleigh, of 57
sounding balloons to each of which
will be attached a tiny meteorograph
-weighing but one and one-half
The meteorograph will automati
cally record temperature, pressure
and humidity values on a smoked
glass plate, only slightly larger than
a postage stamp, during the bal
The balloons, which are filled with
hydrogen gas, burst at maximum
heights of about 10 to 20 miles re
leasing the meteorograph, which is
suspended beneath the balloon by a
40-foot length or rubber cord.
In order to prevent serious dam
age to the instrument when it strikes
the ground, the meteorograph is at
tached to a light framework formed
of three thin bamboo sticks about
four feet long, fixed at their cen
ters so as to be mutually perpendicu
lar. Attention to the meteorograph
will be attracted by five little red
colored flags, fastened to the frame
work, and anyone finding any of the
instruments is urged to preserve it
carefully, refraining from tampering
with the delicate apparatus, and re
turn it by parcel post to the U. S.
Weather Bureau, Washington, D. C.
Upon its receipt, payment for its
return will be made to the finder.
