Who's Who
The first of oui personalities today
is truly a big man. In albtg way. He’s
the chief of the Senior Class. It’s pres
ident. Bobby Green is known to every
one in high school for his witty say
ings, his bright smiles, and, most of
all for his unsurpassed knowledge.
Bobby has made a name for himself
previously by his football record and
no foptball fan has ever missed get
ting a thrill when he did some of his
good work on the fieid. He’s by no
means a woman.hater and has recent
ly shown his attraction to a popular
Senior girl with “dark and redolent
hair." One reason why Bobby is liked
by the girls la his ability to dance and
then also because he's an all-around
good sport. So here’s to the chief of
the Seniors —a good fellow.

He’# • quiet, dependable fellow and
proved his faithfulness to the class
last year by excellent, work *a the

Frank Mills Is there are no blue mo
ments. Frank hasn’t been very fend
of girls but he’s showing everyone by
giving hu attention to a fair Senior
maiden. • With .Frank’s push behind
the Senior class, we’re sure to go a
long way. |
The two Junior'chiefs are live-wires
and for reasons they^ace known to
everyone. Theyr ar - globq pft i s and
are usually found together .(especial,
ly In Franklinton). Both are very
smart in their school work and are
all-around leaders of the Junior class.

Last week this column of person
alities was started and a few of the
members of the first team were given.
This week other members of the
squad and seniors will be diagnosed.
Probably all of them will not be men
tioned, but those vdbo are not, will be
soon, so if you thftrtk that you are an
important member of th e tea and
should be menitoned just hunt for
your name.
Dean Bunn—Tackle: Better known
as “Gas” or ju?t Dean, senior this
year, third year out for the team;
seen quite often with girls; but he's
another guy who hasn't got a “flame.’
John Sustare -Guard: Well, weli,

Erskine Clements —Center:. ‘‘Bull”
not Erskine; third year out for the
team; often, very often seen with
girls; called by a dozen names and
answers at any.
James Coward—Tackle: New: comer
to Henderson line-up; probably would
have made first team but was ham
pered by leg injury; one of the heavy
men in the line; a good man.

with one on Bell© Street; a good fel

The wearers of ihe Blue and The
White will soon begin to wear the red
and the blue. These are not, the
Henderson high colors, but they hap
pen to be the colors of the basketball
uniforms. Beginning jiraetice last
week, the team should be whipping
into shape in a j short'time, although
the coach has practically all new ma
terial to As things are
now. neither Frank Mills nor Ed.
Watfeins J wlll be able to play, because
of scholastic difficulties and numer
ous other reasons. This leaves only
James Mills who has had shy actual
experience in first team games. How
jever, W. C. Statnbadk, Garland Har
iris. Bull Clements and numerous oth
■ers have been on the team and seen
service in games. This, as you see,
oes not leave much material to build
up & team with, and an experienced
second team is essential or a winning
quint. Coach Powell thinks that hn
probably can turnout a fairly good
team, ,
All the boys who are interested in
basketball have a chance this year, eo
it is advisable for you to come out
and try to make a place on the first
team. € ' |(M

Final Two Weeks Drive
For Christmas Started
Last Day of Next Week Is Christmas Eve; Very Little
Laying in of Gifts Has Be en Done So Far; Merch
ants Prepared To Meet Demands of Buyers
The final two weeks drive for
Christinas business was started to
day in Henderson and t.his week and
next will tell the tale as to volume
that will be shown by business estab
lishments. Prepartions were made by
store., and shops to meet the calls of
their customers, and were ready for
whatever of a rush may materialize.
The last day of next week is Christ
mas Eve, for Christmas this year
come* on Sunday, and that is less
than two weeks away. After today,
only 11 shopping days are left in
which to get ready for the coming
of Santa Claus.
53 Paydays 1932
Boom to Workers
Employes who get paid off by
the week will put one over on “Old
Man Depression” this year. The
calendar shows that 1932 will have
a total of 53 Saturdays, or one ex
tra payday this year.
On the other hand, employers
who find it difficult to keep the
weekly pay filled, will
have to scratch to make up the ex
tra Saturday the calls for.
Fifty-three Saturdays in one year

past, the almanac shows.

Extortion Letter
A Fedeiul inspector is expected
here in a fe wdays to make an inves
tigation of the extortion letter re
ceived recently by rs. S. T. Peace.
Washington authorities have advised
th family that an agent will come
here shortly.
The letter, which bore a double date
line of Roanoke Rapids and Hender
son, and was dated and postmarked
in Henderson December 1 demanded
$5,000 from Mrs Peace and threaten
ed her life and her children if the
terms of the letter were not complied
with. The letter was signed "Chicago
Cats,” and warned Mrs. Peace not to
divulge its contents.
Fire men answered three alarms
during the week-end. Two were small
fires and the third false alarm.
On Friday night, a burning smoke
stack at the James Laundry on South
Garnett street was the first call that
came in. No damage was reported by
Fire Chief Shepherd.
Saturday morning at 5:30 o'clock, a,
small roof fire at the home of J. T.
Jones on Harrell street called fire
men who extinguished the blaze be

ent head of the university who has
served since 1910. ,
Five other rn have headed the ex

cities:} William T. Ganna,way, 1803-
1805, faculty chairman; William• H.
l J gram, 1882-1883, faculty chairman;
Marcus L. Wood. 1883-1884. president;
aDd John F. Heitman, 1884-1887, fac
ulty chairman. Brantley ,York was
principal of the institution when it
was first mounded as a local school
in Randolph county.
So far there has been comparatively
little buying on a broad scale, and
such preparations as may. be made on
the part of the general public will be
attended to within the next two
weeks. Stocks of goods put in by mere
chants for their customers are still
adequate for demands looked for in
the last rush, but are expected to be
picked over considerably this week.
For that reason, those who still have
their buying to do are reminded that
it will be to their interest lo attend
to this duty without further delay.
Buying his year is expected to be
directed more perhaps than in any
recent year -to serviceable merchant
dise, beyond, of course, the'toys and
eats that will be laid iq for the chil
dren, and the decorations for the
home and for the Christmas tree.
Those who have stinted. on wearing
apparel may find this opportunity*t©
kill two birds with a single stone in
the suppling of needs and in provid
ing a Christmas present.
Decorations of Christmas greens on
Garnett street in the -shopping dis
trict are about completed, and but for
the rain probably could have been il
luminated by Saturday night. Connec
tions for the wreaths, which have
been been adopted this year instead
of trees, will be made as soon as the
wires dry out sufficiently to permit,
and the shopping section of the city
will present a beautiful appearance
when al! this has been done.
