STALLINGS CHADBOURN, Dec. 8. — Last week Bill S. Edmunds, secretary of the Chadbourn Chamber of, Commerce, took us to see some tangible proof of the progressive ness of the Negroes in that town. They have practically complet ed .only some interior work re maining to be done, a $40,000 community center. It is a mason ry building, with steel trusses, sixty by one hundred six feet. It is used for basketball, dances, social gatherings, graduation ex ercises and the many uses to which a Negro Community cen ter can be put. It was put up and owned by twenty Negro stock holders. The officers of the stock company are T. M. Reynolds, president; Leonard G. Muldrow, vice-president; E. F. Dees, sec retary. Reynolds is director and pianist for a number of musical groups including a female trio that has appeared on several radio pro grams and is very popular. He is instructor of a vocational agri culture class with an enrollment of fifty-two. He has a veterans class of eighteen. He supervises a community cannery that put up ten thousand quarts of food this year. We passed by a new Negro church, a handsome build ing, on the way to the community center. We drove by two outstanding attractive farm houses, those of Mrs. Lee Yates and Mr. and Mrs. Jim Davis. Both are diversified farms. Chadbourn is the junction for two Atlantic Coast Line railroads, one running from Wilmington to Florence and the other from El rod to Conway.

Carter and Sons provide a year-round mar ket for farm produce, poultry, and grains and have hammer and grist mills for farm feed and corn meal. There are four tobac co warehouses. There are two livestock markets. The Chad bourn Marketing Company is a market mainly for strawberries. It uses the auction sale and so successful has it been it has been used as a model by several other towns. The Jones Peanut Com pany buys and processes peanuts.

Success with organizations is one of the very best measures of the progressiveness of a town. Chadbourn has a Chamber of Commerce, W. L. Albright, presi dent; a Rotai'y Club, G. L.

The Negroes have the Baptist, Free-Will Bap tist, Holiness. A. M. E. churches. Chadbourn was incorporated in 1886. As towns go it is yet a youngster. But it is growing rap idly. It is a trade center and a market center. It bids fair to regain its rank as the largest strawberry market in the world, lit is a leader in livestock produc tion. It, has civic determination and civic leadership. We think the finest thing to be Said of Chadbourn is that it is 'genuinely appreciative of the fact that its foundation is the prosperity of the fanners in its BOARD APPROVES LAYING OF CABLE ACROSS CAPE FEAR New Hanover county commis sioners approved yesterday the proposed laying of another power cable on the bed of the Cape Fear river between Eagle Island sub-station and the power plant trade area. Chadbourn knows the farmers by name. It knows what ftie farmers are accomplishing as builders of a fine section. There is no high hat attitude in Chadbourn towards the farmers who use Chadbourn as their trade and market center. Therein is the substantiality of the hope of Chadbourn for future growth. at the foot of Castle street by the Tide Water Power company. The action was taken by the commissioners when the com pany's application for a permit to the U. S. District Engineer's office was presented to the coun ty board by the Federal gov ernment. Persons having objections to the Tide Water plans for the submarine cable may file pro tests with the engineers office prior to December 12. Officials of the company point ed out yesterday that the cable in question has been on order for two years and that it is to be laid to provide additional capacity for power conveyed across the river in case a ship should sever one of its other existing cables or other circumstances should occur to decommission one of the cables. •‘IT’S A TREAT TO EAT” ill A L L A It II * S ICE CREAM 2623 CAROLINA BEACH RD DIAL 4890 Old Sunny Brook is made in Kentucky NY BROOK brand Ut, Ktsrrcitf ^ ^KkEN A BU'*® NATIONAt DISTILLERS PRODUCTS CORPORATIONNEW YORK KENTUCKY WHISKEY-A BLEND . 86.'
