percent of the 1932 graduating class
of Davidson College have a chance
to graduate with honors at the 96th
commencement of the institution, ac
cording to a list which had been pub

Twenty-eight of them have a three

Several Pledge Prayers for
Spiritual Uplift; Ser
mon by Pastor
A general response resulted from
the pastor's invitation at the Chris
tian church revival meeting last night
to those “willing to answer God’s call,
pray for the moating and for lost
•jotils. and to render service into the
hearts and lives of the people, to
make it known by coming down and
pledging themselves anew to the
task." The response. according to
Rev. R. A. Whitten, the pastor, who
is doing his own preaching at the
revival, was most gratifying, as a
very large number in the congrega
tion came to take the hand of the
minister. Besides that, several in the
congregation manifested an interest
by the uplifted hand for prayer.
Last night's attendance on the re
vival was believed to be the largest
thus far. Dr. West of Wake Forest
College faculty, delighted the congre
gation with a solo, "Walt Patiently I
for the Lord." He was accompanied at
the piano by Mrs. W. W. Parker. The
singing of the old gospel hymns is a 1
feature of the services, and the music I
is led by Rev. J* B. Reavis Baptist
preacher of this city.
The subject of the sermon this even
ing. as announced, will be. “Seed Time
and Harvest."
The last nigh' “An r'p
po'-iunity for Service," and the text
was from Exodus 3:lt, “And Moses
said untr, Who am I lh.it 1
should .go?”
"Whep God called Moses to lead
Israel out from under Egyptian
bondage," said the preacher, “Moses
thought God had made a mistake.
Forty years before Moses evidently
thought himself prepared for the task.
Forty years, in the school of God had
cffitpged him. How sn>< now in his
own eyes'he becomes. It did not mat
ter so much who Moses was, but who
was his God. God gave hi ma blank
check and told him to draw on him.
God could have delivered Israel by
miracle, spoke to Pharaoh by the
voice of thunder or called legions of
angels to do the work, had He so
chosen; however, God wanted to use
human instrumentality to accomplish
His purpose. All through the Bible we
find that God has employed weak,
frail humanity to proclaim His mes
sage and perform His work. God gave
Moses a divine commission. God
wants to commission us for His work
today. Sometimes it appears that
God’s servants fail. Herod thought,
when John the Baptist was beheaded
that he was banished forever, but his
name is still remembered and his
work continues to live.
“Stephen had only one sermon (on
record), but that message evidently
reached Paul. A layman in London
delivered a message for Christ and
a lad. coming in from the streets to
avoid a snow storm, heard the mes
sage, knelt at the altar and was saved.
That lad was Spurgeon, the great
preacher. Andrew brought Simon
Peter, the great preacher of Pente
cost. The woman of Samaria said
come, sec a man who has told me
all things. Is not this the Christ? God
is calling Christians tfday. He wants
you. He wants me We should fee)
a concern for lost souls. We should
feel it our duty. To fail is no dis
grace. It is the most glorious enter
prise in the world. Mosses did a great
work. To lead one lost soul to Christ
Is greater than what Moses did."

W. S. Corbitt To Sail Last of
Week To Be Gone S»x\
Weeks or More
With prospects he believes to be
very bright for landing a tremendous
order for motor trucks, William S.
Corbitt, vice-president of The Corbitt
Company, motor truck manufacturers
of this city, will sail this week for
Europe to be gone for six weeks or
more. He is hopeful of bringing back
the order, and expects to make num
erous calls on various prospects while
Mr. Corbitt will leave today for New
York, and on Friday will take passage
on the Cunard liner Berengaria for
Cherbourg, France, whence he will
make the overland trip on the con
tinent by rail. He will be gone until
the middle or latter part of April, ac
cording to his present plans.
The Corbitt Company last year
landed some very large orders from
the North Carolina State Highway
Commission, and if he is successful in
his present undertaking will get the
largest order for trucks ever to be
given a Southern company, and one
which will run into real money, and
would necessitate the addition of
large numbers of mechanics to the
company’s force here.

Dr. Robert E. Roth, world traveler
oifia lecturer, will-make his second ap
pearajioe'in Henderson tomorrow aft
iutn ‘of (Cehtral graded school, it was
announced .today.; He will present his
interesting travelogue, “Wonders of
Alaska." Dr. Roth has recently re
turned from an extensive trip through
Alhska and’the Arctice region, where
he has taken thousands of original
photographs, from which he has select
fid'the ones whlcti he will present. The
pictures are exquisitely colored Ife n r
tufal. tints and are then faultlessly
repfoduefid In their wonderful beauty
with special electrical devices which
are. used. During Dr. Roth's stay in
the Arctic he has flirted with death
craning his neck over the seemingly
bottomless chrisms which are to be
seen in this region, wherever he has
gone he has taken photographs, un
usual photographs with unusual sub
jects with which to interest his au
dience upon his return, these photo
graphs have been reproduced into dis
solving views which profusely illus
trate his entertaining and instructive
travelogue. He is also making use of
new principals in projecting.
Many will remember the exquisite
natural colored pictures which Dr. '
Roth showed here last year, this year
he is returning with an even greater
assortment of pictures.
Raleigh, March. I.—The Drink-More-
Milk campaign being carried on by
the State Board of Health seems to
be getting such good results here, in
Raleigh that the help of the police
department has been sought. The re
sults are somewhat different from
what was expected or intended by the
State Board of however.
For some reason o rother, thefts of
milk from the porches of homes has
increased so here within the last week
or two that the dairymen have ap
pealed to Chief of Police C. R. Bar
bour to help them find the mis
creants. One dairyman reported today
that his losses have amounted to an
average of about 50 quarts of milk a
week for the last few weeks, while
other dairymen have reported losses
almost as great.
