Cotton Mills Operating
On Full-Time Basis Here
• 0
Order* in Hand for Weeks Ahead Unless Delayed In
Demand; Cotton Prices Around Nine Cents on Hen
derson Market and Still Going Up
All factories of the Henderson Cot
ton Mills at North Henderson and
the Harriet Cqtton Mills at South
Henderson are now runnini on a full
' time basis, and have been for a week
or more, with good prospects that
the schedule can be maintained for
some weeks to come, it was learned
authoritatively today.
The recent sharp advance in cotton
has sent buyers into the markets
throughout the country, and this has
in turn increased the demands on tl*
manutacturers, and the local mills are
getting their share of the business.
For several years the factories here
have been forced to operate on a re
stricted basis in keeping with sales,
and sales have not been up to cap
acity by any means for the cotton
mills, as well as for practically all
oth:r lines of industry.

at a rapid speed since the inaugura

since the United States went off the

sale, is quoted at around nine cents
on the Henderson market at this time
a figure which compares with a little
better than five cents per pound for
a long time prior to last March.

Jnnior-Sen for Banquet
Is A Brilliant Affair
The annual Junior-Senior enter- j
tainment of the Henderson high
school was had last evening at the
West End Country Club at 7:30
o’clock the occasion being a dinner
dance given by the junior class com
plimentary to the graduating class.
The ball room of the club, in Which
the entertainment was had, was very
lovely in its decorations of beautiful,
spring flowers attractively arranged
throughout the building. The tables
at which 200 places were laid, carry
ing out the p).rte motif, and candles.
Louis Horner, president of the
junior class,- was toastmlaster for the
evening and introduced the toasters.
Clarence Page toasted the “Crew
of ’33” very appropriately, while Miss
June Hardee responded for the sen
iors. Miss Rebecca Church toasted
the “officers” of the crew, with Prof.
W. D. Payne responding for the
teachers. ,
Between the courses of the dinner,
entertainment was intermingled with
“A Coupl* of Nuggets,” the Wester
twins, Jackie* and Vesta dressed in
(true pirate costumes, singing two
songs for the group. They were very
pleasing an 4 much enjoyed.
(A “Ohest of Gold,” brought in by
four sophomore pirates, when opened
produced Miss Curlena Godfrfey, who
entertained the group With a popular
song an dddd a tap dance number
Which was very good. Miss Godfrey
was applauded loudly and was forced
to give an encore number.
Louis Horner, in a very appropri
ate mlanner presented to Professor
Crowder, the faculty advisor of the
junior class, a momenta of the class,
Which he accepted in a very grace
ful manner.
In a most unique Way, the officers
of the senior class saying only part
of a speech and then calling upon
another officer of the class to con
tinue it until the fourth one present
ed Miss Maxine Taylor. the senior
class a token of their appre
ciation for her aid during their last
year in Miss Taylor made a
fitting acceptance speech.
Irrymediately after the dinner, the
floor was cleared of dining tables
and a dance followed with the ve-w
popular Woke Forest orchestra plac-
ing for the dance. ■ ■ '
The members of the High School
Parent Teacher Assofciatio nserved
the banquet in a most efficient way,
having waiters and waitresses dress
es in pirate costumes, carrying out the
pirate idea still, further.
ThJe waiters and waitresses were
members of the sophomore class ,and
were: Frank Less, Bill Bryan, Bill
Hight, Turner Wortham, Nancy Par
ham, Ann Watkins, Ann Peace, Alma
Parham Effie FLannagan, Margaret
Candler, Carolyn Polston, Alice Har
rison, Ann Mills, Mary Frances Wil
The entertainment was the equal,
if not even better than, the ones giv
en in the past. It certainly had th
largest number of people present that
have been at an. entertinment of this
kind in the local school’s history and
will go down in the school’s history as
one of the best entertain,mmts ever
accorded a graduating class.
Three cases were tried before Mayor
Irvine B. W/atkins in police court
yesterday, all of a minor nature.
Fred Seroys white man charged
with being drunk, was discharged.
Alex Clark, Jr. colored, charged
with assaulting Charlie Pollard dis

Tuberculosis Clinics In
County To Begin Monday
61 White and 12 Colored Patients Have Applied For
Examinations Next Week; State Sanatorium Expert
Will Be In Charge of Tests Made Here
Tuberculosis clinics will be opened
at the Scott Parker Tuberculosis San
atorium here next Monday, and indi
cations are that there will be a large
number of patients.
Dr. C. H. White city-county health
officer, who arranged for the clinics
announced today that 61 white per
sons had applied for the examina
tions, and so far 12 colored people had
sent in their applications. The first
week will be devoted to white per
sons and the second week to colored.
It is planned to examine 12 appli
cants a day.
The tcehduje for visitations has
been worked out, and notice sent to
all applicants notifying them of the
day and the hour for them to appear
With 12 to be examined per day, near
ly enough white people have applied

Seasons Favorable to Farm
ers and They Have
Made Most of Them
Tobacco growers have found the
season almost ideal during the past
week for getting their,l933 crop un
der way, and most of them have
“made hay whil ethe sun shined.”
There have been just about enough
[rain to suit their needs. And most of
the rain has come at night when
they could not work. The days have
brought seasonable temperatures and
sunshine and afforded opportunity tp
transplant the young plants from the
seed beds to the growing fields. The
growers have spent most of their time
in the fields during the week, «nd
most of them are reasonably well sat
isfied wth the start they have made
toward the 1933 crop.
It s estimated that something more
than half the crop has been planted,
and that another week or two will see
practicably the entire crop in the field
in ths country. It wll be necessary
after that to put new plants where
some have ded, but the main plant
ing job will be ended in another fort
Indications are that there will be a
ccnsiderabl increase in acreage in this
county. Blue mold and flea bugs, to
gether with cold weather played havoc

Numerous questions will be asked of
the applicants to get the background
of their condition, both as to their
present condition and their general
health over a period of years. If
sanatorium treatment is required, the
patient will be advised in each in

for that, but all other services in con

all applicants, it is said.
While few colored applicants have

with the farmers’ plans in 1932, with
the result that the crop in this county
was little better than about a fourth
or a hird of that of 1931 An increase
of 100 percent this year over last
year would still be only little more
than half of the 1931 nrop harvest
ed here, it believed.
Farmers are driving for a quality
crop this year. With some prospect
of fair prices, they realize that qual
ity will only add to their welfare
and bring them larger returns for
their yield, and they are out to do
their level best to recoup a part, even
if small, of their losses sustained dur
ing the three years of the depression
when steadily declining prices ham
