Civic Clubs Have Picnic
At Balance Rock Tuesday
Rotary, Kiwanig and Lions Members And Ladies In
spect Renovated and Enlarged Camp Site, Done Over
During Spring Under Flannagan’s Direction
Rotarlans, Kiwanians and Lions
(met together Tuesday afternoon at
Balance Rock Camp for the purpose
of inspecting the camp site and en
joying a picnic supper. They took
their wives and ladies and enjoyed
the hours at the resort, which was
opened only last Sunday for summer
campers, and Troop No. 30 of Boy
{Scouts is now at 'the camp for a
week's stay.
A few went in bathing, but most
of the group utilized the occasion for
iSoc'al acquaintance and fellowship,
and the inspection of the camp, which
was a revelation to many of those
Who attended and who ad not hitherto

' The marvel to the visitors was the
great transformation that has cornel
dver the camp site during the spring
months, under the direction of Er.c'
G. Flannagan, local architect, who
has given his services without cost
to Improve the place for the use of
t’he young people. It was given by
the late Dr. R. J. Gill for the use
(if hoys and girls of Vance county
■as a camping site in the summer.
; With the help of labor furnished
with Federal relief funds. Mr. Flan- 1
ijagan has given much of his time ;
during the spring months to super-|
vising and directing the work at the;
camp. Thd floor of the lake was;
Cleared., with the removal of debris, j
undergrowth, many huge rocks and j
the like, and the raising of the level
<Sf th: dam 27 inches, this increasing
the spread of the lake. Sand was;
dumped along the edge, and consid-1
drably terracing was done all around
the Jake shore. Rock walls have been
tiuilt tn protect walkways along the
ledges, numerous rustic bridges have
been erected, four cabins built for the 1
Use of campers, and the old cabin has !
been renovated and enlarged, and;
bath houses for men and women are !
riow practically completed. A number;
qf long tables have been built for'
in various local.ties, and
a spring on the side of the hill has i
he ui entirely closed in. except for the;
entrance, with cedar scantling. This;
stream runs underground to the old
cabin, where a formation has been,
made to keep milk and other liquids
and foods in a cool storage. A slight
tank or dam on the lower side of this
cabin has so arranged with rus
tjc pipings and spigots as to afford
running water. A rustic cedar wharf:

campers gather for Scouting instruc

Yesterday’s civic club visitors found
Troop No. 30. of the Boy Scouts, al
ready in camp, where they moved in
Sunday for the first party of the sea
son. They appeared to be enjoying
their stay to the fullest. Every cabin
and hut on the grounds is thoroughly
screened and sanitary.
) The natural setting is considered
: ideal for just such a camp as has been
i built. Many improvements are every

been thought of and could have been
executed only by an architect. Those

without charge in the interest of the
l young people of th? community.
The lock from which the site takes
\ its name. Balance Rock, has been
shifted back into balance under Mr.
; Flannagan’s direction. It is so deli
i cutely balanced, a sit formerly was
i by nature, that one can rock it by

; and weighs many tons. Though it is

The introuuction of the new motor
lue) Essotene to the public at Esso
Stations on June 2 is one of the
major steps in a new marketing pro
gram which Is involving the expedi
ture of several million dollars and
giving employment to many workers
according to J. T. Holland, local Su
pervis.o of the business of the Stan
dard Oil Company of New Jersey.
The program involves the re-identi
fication of some 30,000 outlets as Esso
stations, located from Maine through
Louisiana, and includes a large ad
vertising expenditure, much of which
will go to newspapers.
Concerning Essolene, G. G. At

says, “I naturally am enthusiastic

Unusual motor fuel. The tests indi
cate that it is the best regular-priced
fuel on the market. The anti-knock
quality is higher than in any regular
gasoline and, among other things, Es
solene actually reduces gummy de
posits in an old engine. We’ve given
the slogan “Guarantees SmoQthgr
Performance’ to Essolene and we’re
sure- motorists will find that’s so.”
A red-and-white color scheme will
distinguish the Esso Stations. All the
pumps are being re-painted to con
form to this plan and new signs are
being erected. All of this work gives
employment to many men and in the
opinions of J. T. Holland, and G. G.
Atkins, is an indication of their com
pany’s attitude toward the future.
Esso and Essolube, as well as Es
solence is available at all of the
Esso stations.

Now Is Their Big Chance To
Finance Public Works
Dally DiNpntch Bureau
In the Sir Walter Hotel
Raleigh, June 14—Cities and towns
that need new water systems, sew
age Lnes or disposal systems, street,
ipaving or other public works, can
save 30 per cent of the cost of these
improvements under the terms of the
new public works bill just passed by
Congress, it is pointed out here to
day. Under the terms of this new bill
counties, cities and town sthat can
get the money to pay for 70 per cent
of the cost of these improvements can
get an outright gift from the Federal
government of the remaining 30 per
cent of the cost.
This act is not intended t 0 apply
to any except necessary public works
and improvements, it is pointed out.
But there are thousands of cities and
towns throughout the United States,
with many in North Carolina, that
need either new or enlarged water and
sewage, systems or new paving or pub
lic buildings. So in order to encourage
the construction of these new pro
jects right now, with a view espe
cially to providing more work for the
unemployed, the Federal government
has agreed to pay almost one third
of the cost of this new work if the
local governmental units will pay for
the other two-thirds of the cost.
It is also believed that most of the
cities and towns needing to build any
of these new public works projects
will be able to borrow most of the
money needed to pay for their 70 per
cent from the Reconstruction Finance
Corporation, to be paid back from op
erating revenues. In this case, the
money borrowed will not have to be
paid back from tax revenues at all,
so that this new construction will not
need to cost the taxpayers anything.
This section of the new public
works act should enable those cities
and towns in the State that need to
enlage or rebuild any of these fa
cilities and opportunity to do this
work' now at a saving of 30 per cent
and still take advantage of present
low prices for construction work it
is pointed out. ’
Offer Plan For
Cotton Reduction
(Continued from Pane one.7
warded to the White House that~thlv
would be satisfied with 10,000 000
acres, which is provided in th e ten
tative plan now being prepared by
Secretary Wallace.
Soon after G. G. Adams, Georgia
commissioner of agriculture i n & a
sttaement, predicted that the plan
most likely to be carried out will pro
“Giving the cotton growers the pri
vilege of leasing to the government
30 percent of their acreage at $lO
per acre, if they do not tak ß options
on an equal number of bales which
this abandoned land would produce
counting three acres to the bale; or
$6 per acre and allowing these grow
ers an option on cotton now held by
the government at six cents per pound
to be held by it for sale on 'their or

but. no loss in case of a decline.
“Thus,” Adams said, “the govern
ment would dispose of the 2 1-2 mil
lion bales now owned by it.”
“B. C.” Relieves
Periodical Pains
In Three Minutes
It is so unnecessary to suffer
month after month from inorganic
pains, because “B. C.” will bring
soothing relief in three minutes.
“B. C.” is prepared by a registered
pharmacist, compounded on a differ
ent principle from most relief-giving
agencies in that it contains several
ingredients, used by many physicians,
so blended and proportioned as to ac
complish in a few minutes what we
believe no one drug formula can do
in so short a time. “B. C.” should
also be used for the relief of common
colds, headaches and neuralgia, mus
cular aches and pains, reducing fever
and for quieting a distressed nervous
system without opiates, narcotics or
.such habit forming drugs. Get “B.
C.” in 10c and 25c packages, wherever
drugs are sold. (Adv).
