THE ALLEGHANY TIMES SUBSCRIPTION RATES $1.00 Per Year Published Every Thursday Entered as second-class mat ter at the Post Office at Sparta, N. G. ERWIN D. STEPHENS,...Editor THURSDAY, AUGUST 10, 1933 Jimison Pays Tribute To Man W i t h A Helping Hand (Concord Daily Tribune.) Tom Jimison, who has been preach er, lawyer, and agitator and is now a news columnist, recently paid hand some tribute to Rev. W. E. Poovey, and the tribute we are repeating here because it brings out traits of char acter most people don’t associate with Tom Jimison and because, too, it demonstrates anew the oft-repeat ed but too often neglected truth that kindness and friendliness and courte sy are among the great virtues. Here’s what Mr. Jimison wrote: “When I went to Emory and Hen ry College a quarter of a century ago I was a raw and beardless youth, awkward as a cow, ignorant as a mule, green as a gourd and shy as a boomer. I called the second floor of the dormitory ‘up in the loft’, ate with my knife, chewed homespun to bacco and more jeans breeches and squeaking brogans. In the evntide when the sun sank into a sea of opa lescent glory behind the Cumberlands and the shadows of night deepened in the foothills of the Blue Ridge where the famous old college stands, I used to slip out under one of the great oaks on the spacious campus and cry for my mother and father and my cabin home in Haywood. I wanted to go back to plowing Buck, my white-backed bull, and Zeke, a big rawboned mule. I craved to drive up old Pied and Brindle from the pasture, to eat bread and milk again from the spring with a gourd, to fish and hunt and let book-lamin’ go to the dickens. “I was wiping the tears from my eyes with my sleeve when I was dis-i covered by W. E. Poovey, a senior. I He was a North Carolinian, too, as a 1 mature man, big and strong and handsome. He took charge of me and j made my surroundings endurable. ( Maybe it was because I was from j his own state and maybe it was be- J cause he was sorry for a homesick i mountain boy. I dunno, and I don’t i care. All I know is that he gave me j strength and courage and hope when I was low and all momixed up in my mind . . . .May God rest his soul.” IN MEMORIUM As the evening sun was making its descent in the western horizon on July 31, 1933, the soul of William Lee Warden, passed out on the wings of the evening ipto the presence of Him who giveth and who taketh away. •; He was bom July 2, 1865, making his pilgrimage on earth 68 years, 29 days, thus ending a long useful and happy life. On April 17, 1890, he was married to Sarah Alice Fender, in Denver, Colorado. To this union was born three children; two daughters, Elsie, Trixie, and one son, Clifford. They lived happily together. Their home was a home where everybody that knew them loved to visit. The preach er always found a hearty welcome there, and they took time to worship God. Until March 1, 1917, mother bid good-bye to children and companion and crossed the chilly waters to be with the redeemed. On July 27, 1921, Uncle Lee was married to Malisa Kennedy. A kind companion and devoted Christian. To this union God blessed them with one little son, Willie Cecil Uncle Lee professed a hope in Christ November 27, 1909, and joined the Methodist church at Shiloh, Nov. 30, 1909. He leaves to mourn our loss a de voted companion, four children, a faithful brother and a host of friends. May the comforting grace of God be with them all until they shall be reunited in His glorious presence for ever more. (Written by request.) CHARLIE MITCHELL. NOTICE OF SALE NORTH CAROLINA, ALLEGHANY COUNTY. In the Superior Court—Before the Clerk. J. T. Cox, Administrator of I. B. Cox, deceased, Plaintiff vs Alice Toliver and others, Defendants. Under and by virtue of judgment in th above entitled matter, I will offer for sale to the highest bidder for cash, on the premises, near Ble vins Cross Roads on the 9th day of September, 1933, at 11 o’clock A. M., the following described real estate: Beginning on a cucumber by River, Thomas Andrews corner, running thence S. 2 W. with Andrews line 101 poles to a chestnut oak, thence E. 28 % poles to a stake, thence N. 52 E. 53 poles to a stake at River, then down and with the River to begin ning. Containing 25 10-16 acres, more or less. This 8th day of August, 1933. J. T. COX, Administrator and Commissioner. FARM NEWS BY W. B. COLLINS, County Agent. Twelve rams were sold at the ram sale in Sparta on last Monday. A few trades were made on the older rams which were brought in. The rams sold brought an average price of about $11.00 per head. The only ram sold that left the county went to Mr. J. W. Robertson, Hickory, N. C. The pooled lambs were sold on Monday for $6.05 per hundred weight. The month of August is a good time for farmers to cut bushes, briars, weeds and other filth on their farms. No farmer can take the proper pride in ownership of a farm which is cov ered with briars and other filth. At this time all fence corners should be cleaned out to let the sun in and keep the fences in a better state of preser vation. A few days work spent each year in cutting bushes and briars, and cleaning out fence rows will give most any farm a clean neat appear ance which will well repay for the work spent. It is time to wean the cull lambs and put them on good grass and a feed of grain twice per day. Cull lambs can be made fat lambs by the time they can be sold in September. Did you know that sheep killing dogs cost the county $50.00 during the month of July.? There has been a good response to the cards sent out asking the farmers to send in a list of the cattle they have for sale. This list will be avail able to all cattle buyers in the coun ty and will be used to induce buyers from out of the county to come here to buy cattle. Many Have Tonsils Removed During the past week the following had their tonsils removed at the Sparta clinic: Mrs. J. W. McBride and Mr. Roy Bryan, of Trayhill, N. C.; Miss Edith Cockerham, Galax, Va.; Miss Glenna Duncan, Sparta; Miss Doris Collins, Edwards Crossroads; Miss Geraldine Burgiss, Elkin, N. C. NORTH CAROLINA, ALLEGHANY COUNTY.

Robert Weinstein and Victor W. Thompson, Attorneys, Raleigh, N. C. [ QjetvdvrrL. UNTIL WE LEARNED BETTER Until we learned better, we used to mix wood and steel in our car bodies and wheels. . .. , . ~ +. _ OT%+ It was the best way to make bodies—then. But the state of the art has advanced. . . Of course, it is more expensive to make an all-steel body than make a wooden frame and nail steel panels on to it. The better way in volves an initial expenditure of several millions of dollars for new dies, which renders a change very costly. Cars, especially large expensive cars which are produced in small volume, cannot afford this, ecause 6 cost as much for one car as for a million. That alone explains why all steel bodies are not used in all cars. , _ But our basic policy from the beginning is to make a good car better, regardless of. cost. . . For example, when we discarded wood-steel body construction, it was not because we lacked wood. We still have some thousands of acres of the best hard wood in America. Economy would urge us to use up the wood first, and then adopt the better all-steel body. But we decided that quality was more important than expense. . We weighed the reasons, for and against, before we made the change. We could see only one reason for retaining a mixed wood-and steel body —nailing the metal on, instead of welding an all-steel body into a strong one-piece whole. That reason was, it would be cheaper for us. Our reasons for adopting an all-steel body were these: A wood-stee body is not much stronger structurally than its wooden frame. ^ all American climates, wood construction weakens with age. Every us®d r gives evidence of this. Rain seeps in between joints and the wood decays. A car may have a metal surface, and yet not be of steel construction. Under extreme shock or stress the steel body remains intact dented per "Osteal does'nof need wood for strength or protection. Wood is fine for furniture, but not for the high speed vehicles of 1933. In the Ford body there are no joints to squeak, no seams to crac or leak. , . . . The all-steel body is more expensive—to us, but not to you. By all odds, then, steel bodies seem preferable. . .. Wheels also have become all-steel. No one argues that an electrically welded one-piece steel wheel, such as the Ford wheel, needs to be "strengthened" by adding wood to it. , moat The one-piece all-steel body is the strongest, safest, quietest, most durable body made. That is our only reason for making them. August 7th, 1933
