<S> ROTARY LUNCHEON <S>
An excellent program?and an
equally excellent luncheon?was
dished out to the Rotary club on
Tuesday afternoon at its regular fortnightly
meeting, which was held in
the grill room of the Newberry hotel.
Pro?;irJprit Haskell Kibler was charge
d'affairs and he wielded the gavel in j
a most parliamentary manner. The
program committee, with Rotarian
Jas. Kinard as chairman, turned over
to the president a most interesting
program, which was rendered "according
to Hoyle." Of course, the
program committee was not responsible
for everything that bobbed up
during the course of the luncheon,
for it is a matter of impossibility for
any committee to hold Rotarians Ben
Cromer and Earle Babb?the former
with his ready witticisms and the latter
with his music and stunts?down
to a "set program." That just simply
can't be did"?and there is no
telling ever when either of these
Rotes is going to start something.
Rotarian Hal Kohn, the efficient
secretary of the Rotary club, was on
the program for a paper on "My Vocation."
Now, of course, when Hal
arose to deliver this preachment, everybody
thought that a treatice on
books, art goods, etc., was forthcoming:
a second guess would have been
a narrative on the trials and tribulations
of a newspaper correspondent,
in which work this Rotarian now excels.
But, not so! Instead, Rotarian
Kohn just lived up to his soubriquet
of "Dollar Down" and proceeded to
tell the club what it meant to be secretary
of the Newberry Rotary club.
It was a very interesting paper?read
in a very interesting an:! entertaining
' Then Rotarian Sid Derrick launched
right into a "Talk on Rotary" and
the ws.y he handled his subject was
proof conclusive to the Rotes that he
knows Rotary. This Rotarian just
couldn't omit reference to "jollity"
and "solidarity," which nre two of his
pet themes?and he knows how to
expatiate on them, too. Everybody
knows that Rotarian Derrick is going
to "say a moutmui" wnen nu gets up
to speak, and he did on this occasion.
The talk was greatly enjoyed.
At the last luncheon, the club had
as its guests the senior class of Newberry
college. As a ball game was
scheduled for that afternoon, however,
it was impossible for the members
of the team to be present. The four
members of the team, Messrs. Shealv.
Haltiwanger, Luther and Derrick, and
Coach "Dutch'' McLean, who could
not be with their clasmates on that
occasion, were present at Tuesday's
luncheon. Prof. Gilbert P. Voigt
of the college faculty, was also a
g^iest at the luncheon. Short talks
were made by Messrs. Derrick, McLean
and Voigt in a most happy manner.
Of course, Rotarian Bafcb had to
put on exhibition for the Rotarians
and their guests some of the musi>
cal(?) talent of the club, and Rotarians
James Kinard, Ben Dorrity and
Harry Dominick proceded to lead in
the infliction of a few of the cldtimers
on the helpless gathering.
The election of delegates to the international
Rotary convention, which
will be held in Los Angeles next
month, was then entered into. Rotarian
Zach Wright was elected delegate
and Rotarian George Summer,
alternate. Both of these Rotarian-3
will attend the convention and will
"be escorted as far as Ashevilie on
May 30th by a bunch of local Rotes
in automobiles. The party will be the
guests of the Ashevilie Rotary club
at a luncheon on that date.
Tuesday's luncheon was a most enjoyable
affair?and now the Rotes

On Thursday night, May 18th, at h
8:00 o'clock, the local post of the t
American Legion is putting on an t
entertainment* in the new court
house which is open to the public, E
and which should be interesting to
everybody in Newberry. Mr. Hume
MacDonald will give a demonstrating
lecture on boxing, "The Manly Art t
)f Self Defense." At the same time t
he will give a short talk on Keeping t
Fit, Reducing and Body Building, es- a
pecially for the ladies. Every ex- h
service man knows what an impor- r
tant part boxing played in the train- p
ing of the American soldier during r
the World war. This demonstration p
will carry them back to their camp- c
mg days. j
The legion when approached by v
Mr. MacDonald. himself a World war c
veteran, having served with the an- t
adian forces in France, and who is
touring the United States giving his r
lecture, immediately consented to \
have him come to Newberry. He r
explains and demonstrates in a lucid i
manner the art of self defense, and c
from the accounts of his lecture a
which he gave to the legion at Green- v
wood last week, Mr. MacDonald un- fc
derstands his subject for he made a g
decided hit with the boys. So pleas- J,
ed and interested were they that he
wa? prevaied upon to spend a week f
with them in giving lessons in the art y
of boxing. The post commander, 3
Mr. Ernest Rosenberg, enrolled the
^ame night thirty pupils. I <
The public is cordially invited to
hear and see Mr. MacDonald. He is
ar. interesting character, is a veteran
of three wars, has traveled in every
civilized and a g:ood many uncivilized (
countries on this old globe of ours, *
and is thoroughly familiar with the *
i subject of his lecture. You will be '

"Love's Masquerade" is a story

of highly dramatic incidents
which might easily have been taken
from real life in any average community.
It is from the pen of Henry

HARDING INVITED TO SHRINE
MEETING IN ROCK HILL
"Good Town" Makes Preparation for
Rock Hill, May 15.?When a message
was received this morning from
Illustrious Potentate D. A. G. Ouzts
of Greenwood that he had extended
to President Harding, who is a Shriner,
an invitation to be the guest of
Hejaz temple Thursday when the
spring ceremonial will be held in
Rock Hill, the Rock Hill organization
Telegrams, urgently inviting the
president to "come down" and don
the Fez for a day were sent by the
Rock Hill Shrine club, Winthrop college,
the rhamber of commerce, the
city of Rock Hill, Rotary and Kiwanis
clubs, and the Evening Herald.
Governor Cooper, who is also expected
to be here for the ceremonial, last
week invited the president, extending
a personal invitation during his visit
The Shriners are hopeful th'at the
president will accept the invitations
to partake for a day of the hospitality
of the Palmetto state. He can
leave Washing-ton Wednesday night,
arrive here early in the morning,
spend the day and return to Washington
Thursday night, being absent
from his office but a single day.
Tomorrow the work of decoratnig
the city for the occasion will be under
way and by night the city's business
district will be a riot of colors.
Ceremonial Director Smith will arrive
with his camels from Greenville
Wednesday morning and the day will
be devoted to grooming the "ship.-- of
the desert" and getting the equipment
raedy for the "forced march"
Thursday. All rports indicate there
will be 2,000 or more Shriners ere,
wile there will be an uncounted multitude
from all over this part of the
state to Witness the street stunts and
see the "fresh meat" ere it is carried
to the house of slaughter across the
hot sands of the .desert.
To Provide Stunts

different comntittees and learning
that each man had his task well in
V>o?rl Prpei/lont Hardin and his as
aaiiUl JL. A VW1V?V??W
>0 > sistants
gave prolonged consideration
to the street stunts for the "fresh
meat" before aad during the parade.
New and novel 5|ints have been lined
up that will giv^4he candidates plenty
to do from the time the patrol gets
out until the ceremonial session in
the afternoon. There are a number
of Rock Hill Masons, to walk the
sands and the local members are determined
to see that the desert sands
are especially warm.
The ceremonial will fee held in the
gymnasium at4 Winthrop college,
with the swimming pool and showers
immediately adjacent. While Shriners
will not talk on the subject, ru
mcr has it that a vast supply office
will be placed in the pool shortly before
the candidates are conducted
into the building. Another rumor is
to the effect that a bounteous supply
of the material used in preparing dips
for cattle and swine will be put into
the pool and that the candidates will
go through this and take the showers
prior to emerging into the gym arena.
Regardless as to the nature of
mirth provoking stunts, all Shriners
are assured of plenty of amusement
and the candidates are being admonished
to remember that they will get
their money's worth later when they
help to initiate others. ,
The parade committee promised a
pageant a mile long and reports to
day are to tne enect mat 11 may exceed
expectations. Director Smith is
expected to be here Wednesday
morning to get his end of the business
in readiness for the event.
Women to Attend
Reports coming in from all over
| the state indicate an unusual atten!
dance. Hundreds of members of
Omar and Oasis temple will be here
to join with their brother nobles of
Hejaz in the performance of the mysl
tic rites. Hundreds of women are
also expected to accompany their nobles
on this pilgrimage. The fact
| that the ceremonial is to be at Winthrop
college, where hundreds of
Shriners have daughters or other ral
j t-.ves, will serve to bring many here
j and in most cases it is expected they
(will be accompanied by their wives
jand sisters. The women of the local
Shrine club have perfectetd an organization
to the end that ample entertainment
shall be furnished the
' visiting women.

Funeral of Mrs. MayeS
The Herald and News carried the
brief announcement Tuesday of the
death of Mrs. Carrie Mayer Mayes,
the beloved and loving vvfie of Mr.
;J. Thomas Mayes, who died at half
ipast two o'clock Monday afternoon,
| after an illness of several weeks at
, her home, 1711 Main street. The
funeral service was conducted at the
home Tuesday afternoon at 5 o'clock,
by her pastor, Dr. C. A. Freed, interment
in Rosemont cemetery, the
following acting as pallbearers: C.
T. Summer, J.' Y. McFall, W. B.
j Wallace, J. H. Summer, F. N. Martin,
J. N. McCaughrin, W. F. Ewart,
I W. E. Turner.
Mrs. Mayes is survived by her husJband,
Mr. J. Thomas Mayes, health
( officer of Newberry, and the following
sons and daughters: J. Thomas
' Mayes, Jr., of Cleveland, Ohio, WilI
liam Mayes of Chicago, Bennie Mayi
er Mayes of Greensboro, N. C., Jesse

of Mr. William Mayes, who
. was unable to come, and Mr. Tom
Mayes, who arrived the night follow|
ing the burial, the others with memt
bers of their families were present.
1 Besides the above, Mrs. Mayes leaves
several grandchildren and other reljatives
and a large circle of friends
| to mourn their loss. She was the
' daughter of the late Dr. 0. B. Mayer,
Sr., and a sister of the late Dr.
i 0. B. Mayer, Jr., both eminent physicians,
holding the affectionate re1
gard of the community. Many in
Newberry remember very pleasantly
' the life time of these departed docl
:ors and the happy marriage of Mr.
Tom Mayes and his bride, who had
been sweethearts since childhood. As

from the eyes of the public, being
i "known and read of all men," it has
been pleasantly seen all along that
the love of the sweethearts abided
with the same tender solicitude
throughout the journey of life together
as when at the altar they were
made man and wife. Such rare, affection
is appreciated by a community
and the joy of it kept the two young.
Children were born and the little
ones grew to manhood and womanhood,
reared aright, and the happiness
of the household deepeaed as
the years went by. And now death
