Leigh Sheep Co. Main Street Woman's Wear Elizabeth City, N. C. NO GOODS ON APPROVAL hi light penalty. . With a dramatic gesture, Dr. Fetch declared- "I had rather see my son assaulted and murdered on your streets, than to have him became avfc time of the bootlegger, and later fill a drunkard's grave !" From an economic standpoint, Dr. Fetch drew an interesting comparison between the attitude of people in gene ral toward industry as against their sen timent toward the drink evil. The raw material, declared Dr. Fetch, which is taken fron field forest or mine, is con verted by our industrial system into a finished product of greater value than it originally possessed. If for any rea son there should develop a general ten dency on the" part of any industry to manuf acture;- the law would take mea sures to stop it. On the other hand, when a : liquor dealer reduces the com merciaLjalue of our most valuable raw material, namely the young man, by sup plying him with alcohol which will blur his faculties and destroy his usefulness to the community the law all too often does nothing to prevent. Considering the cost of his education and upbringing, and his yearly earning capacity, Dr. Fetch estimated the value of the young man at $10,000, or $600 per year, the interest on the former sum. "With several pointed illustrations he showed that when the same young man becomes a regular 'user of alcoholx his value is swiftly reduced to nothing. He becomes a burden upon the commu nity to which he was formerly a valu able asset. Ten such men represent an economic loss to the State and Nation of just $100,000, and when the entire yearly loss to the country which may be traced directly to the door of the demon rum is estimated, .it forms a staggering total of many millions of dollars. This entertaining and convinc ing speaker concluded with a recital of some of his experiences while serving under, fire in France as superintendent of transportation of the 37th Division, When Dr. Fetch had finished, Coun ty Superintendent of. Public i Welfare Preston S. Vann, county director of the forthcoming prohibition drive, asked the sentiment of those present as to the I appointment of a city director to assist in the work, and upon the motion of Rev. J. M. Ormond, pastor of the First Methodist church of this city, it was decided to form a committee of five who should select the man for the job. The committee chosen by Supt. Vann in clude Rev. J. M. Ormond, Supt. M. P. Jennings, Dr. G. W. Clarke, Rev. J. W. Bradley and C. W. Melick. SIMPSON GRAY On Wednesday afternoon, December 31, Richard H. Gray, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Gray of South Norfolk and Miss Rosa Mae Simpson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G.' V. Simpson of Grandy, of the bride s parents Kev. J. L. Wal- drep officiating.
