A. Meikle of Patterson Mills. Vir
gil has a slight lead with 75% of
his quota, but he was plainly wor
ried Wednesday night when Major
Meikle told him that Patterson
would be heard from before the
race was over.
Another race in the Industrial
Division is between Major Bill
Medlin, of Roanoke No. 1, and Ma
jor Bill Hodges of Roanoke No. 2,
with the River Mill holding a
slight edge on Wednesday night.
Bill Hodges was heard to say,
"Just wait until the fight is over
before you pick the winners. Give
me four more days, and I’ll shove
the River Mill in the River".
In the Special Gifts Division,
Colonel Leslie Towe and his ma
jors report that they are only half
through, and on the basis of their
Wednesday report, they will exceed
their quota by nearly a thousand
Colonel A. E. Akers, in the Gen
eral Solicitations Division, has been
hardest hit by the busy week, and
the holidays, am; he made a spe
cial appeal for more Campaign
Workers so that his Division could
complete their work. With more
than half of his quota raised, and
his workers reporting that only a
bout 35% of their subscribers seen,
Colonel Akers was optimistic about
the final results. Major Bob Clea
ton and Major Alfred Martin es
pecially need more team captains,
and any volunteer workers to as
sist these two majors in their re
spective business districts wdl be
greatly appreciated. Just give Bob
or Alfred call and they’ll be glad to
give you a supply of pledge cards
and buttons.
Major Charlie Davis, in charge
of Teachers and Ministers, in Mr.
Akers’ Division, was the first
Drive unit to go over the top, while
many other majors need only
small amounts.
Major Hines, in charge of the
smaller Industries, Major May, in
charge of Insurance and Banking,
Major B. Weathers, in charge of
the Professions, and Major Kath
erine Wolhar, in charge of Busi
nesses run by Ladies all promise
good reports before the week is
over, while Major Newsome, in
charge of the Automobile, Gas, and
Oil workers also made an appeal
for a few more volunteer workers
to assist him in soliciting pledges
from his scattered territory.
Assault Victim
Girl Here
At Hobgood
Lillie Mae Hale, former Roanoke
Rapids girl who is now living with
relatives near Hobgood, was at
tacked by an 18 year old white boy
Saturday night on a road near the
outskirts of Hobgood.
Miss Hale says she and her cou
sin, Rebecca Bland, were walking
along the highway about 7:30
when a white boy pushed Miss
Bland out of the way and grabbed
Miss Hale by the throat. She says
she fought him off and he ran.
The cousins identified the assail
ant as Pete McKenzie.
Since the death of her father in
1935, Miss Hale says she lived with
an aunt, Mrs. E. B. Price, 321 Mon
roe St., Roanoke Rapids, for some
time. Her mother had died in
1933. The girl left Roanoke Rapids
in July of this year to make her
home with another aunt, Mrs. Les
ter Bland of Hobgood.
A post season football game will
be staged between the crack Little
ton High School team and the pow
erful John Graham High School
team of Warrenton on Friday, De
cember 8, the kickoff coming at 2
pjn. sharp. The game is sponsored
by the Lions Clubs of the two
towns, the proceeds from the game
to be divided between the two
schools. The game will be played
at the John Graham Athletic Field
in Warrenton.
The two teams, evenly matched
in play for the 1939 season, are
spirited rivals, the competition be
coming so keen in 1936 that rela
tions were called off until they got
together for the post season game
this year. Both teams have played
heavy schedules, with Littleton
winning six, tying one and losing
two. Warrenton played a ten-game
schedule, winning seven, tying two,
and losing one. One of the wins
came as a result of a forfeit.
The Littleton team, under the
supervision of Coach Steve Acai,
is the lighter of the two teams and
will depend on the speed of Moore
and the two Johnson boys in the
backfield tc offset their opponents’
weight and power. Warrenton is
a power team and will expect Miles
and Aycock, brawny backs, to car
ry the mail through the holes open
ed up by the big line, led by Moore,
Reid, and Davis. Coach Overman
will have charge of the Warrenton
In weight the Warrenton team
has the advantage of about ten
pounds to the man. Coach Acai
believes, however, that his boys will
stand a chance in that his ball car
riers are the fleetest in this section
of the state.
Edgerton, Spain, Riggan, and
Threewitts are expected to lead the
attack for the Littleton forwards.
The Littleton record for the past
season stands: won over Weldon
12 to 0; lost to Rich Square 6 to 0;
beat Henderson 39 to 0; beat Wind
sor 39 to 0: won over Wendell 39
to 0; beat Roxboro 20 to 6; won
over Apex 13 to 6; tied Oxford 0
to 0; lost to Catholic Orphanage
18 to 0.
Warrenton defeated Enfield 19 to
0; won over South Hill 45 to 0;
beat Emporia 13' to 0; won over
E.C.T.S. at Rocky Mount 19 to 0;
lost to Troy 7 to 6; won over Rox
boro 7 to 6; tied Fuquay Springs
0 to 0; tied Spring Hope 6 to 6;
won by a forfeit over Henderson 1
to 0; defeated Weldon 13 to 0.
Officials for the game will be
secured from the big five colleges
in the state.
Billie Burton returned to Mill
edgeville, Ga., Wednesday after
spending the Thanksgiving holi
days with his parents, Mr. and Mrs.
J. R Burton.
Announcement is made this week
by C. C. Shell, manager of the Qual
ity Shop, that a complete remodel
ling program will be started soon
after the first of the year. The
shop will also alter their policy and
effective January 1st will operate
a ladies store exclusively. In the
past many well-known lines of
men’s haberdashery have been car
ried ; however, they will tomorrow
start a closing out sale of all men’s
wear, and hope to dispose of their
stock before starting the remodel
ling program.
In addition to the closing out
sale of men’s wear, the shop is fea
turing their annual After-Thanks
giving sale of coats and dresses.
This, coupled with the fact they
are faced with the situation of
either selling or storing their large
stock of merchandise prior to re
modelling, has prompted them to
offer more outstanding values than
usual, according to the announce
ment. The sale starts Friday
morning, December 1st, and will
last throughout the holiday sea
son. It is the first store-wide sale
ever to be conducted by them at
this season, according to Mr. Shell,
and is expected to draw large
crowds from here and the sur
rounding trade territory. A double
page advertisement will be found
in this issue, and the sale has been
further exploited through the dis
tribution of thousands of handbills
in the territory.
Although many plans incidental
to the remodelling of the shop are
yet to be perfected, Mr. Shell stated
that when workmen have complet
ed, the Quality Shop will unques
tionably take its place as one of
Eastern Carolina’s best stores in
the popular-priced ladies field. The
shop occupies a 25 x 80-ft. building
at 1034 Roanoke Avenue. Flans for
alteration include completely work
ing over the front, with extensive
remodelling of the interior of the
building. Many new fixtures will
be added to replace the ones for
merly used for men’s wear.
Mr. Shell, manager of the popu
lar uptown shop, has been promi
nently identified with retailing in
Roanoke Rapids for the past 27
years, and established the present
store known as The Quality Shop
November 1st, 1929.
