DAiLY DISPATCH, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, ,1934 ~~ Miss Selma Gill Weds Frank Joyner A wedding that will be of much in terest to the many friends of the couple was solemnized Wednesday evening at the Baptist parsonage in Louisburg when Miss Selma Morton Gill and B. Frank Joyner were mar ried in the presence of only a few close friends. Rev. D. P. Harris, pas tor of the Baptist church in Louis burg officiated in the ceremony. The bride was becomingly attired in a biege swagger suit with accesso ries of brown to match. Mrs. Joyner is the attractive dau'ght er of Mr. and Mrs. Fred A. of this city, and is known to a wide cir cle of friends. Mr. Joyner is the son of Mr. and Mrs. E. T. Joyner, of this city. He holds a position with the Bon Ton Service Station. Immediately after the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. Joyner left for Nor folk, Va., where they will take a boat to Philadelphia. lUpon their return, they will make ■ bmr home on West Chestnut street. The following announceirient has has been made: “Mr. and Mrs. Fred A. Gill announce the marriage of their daughter Selma Morton to B.

I clarcr paused, then he put up the K I <>f trumps, to avoid a first-round finesse. One of our best players once said: “When Weston thinks, he always saves a trick.” He switched to his Ace of clubs, to test out hand pat terns. Most players never would think of such a thing* The 8 fell at declarer's left. The J covered the S of clubs. Dummy’s K won the trick. The 4 of hearts was led from dummy. The 3 appeared at the right. Weston paused, then up went the Ace. cap turing West’s bare Q. Dummy’s 9 won the clearing trick in hearts. Two club tricks were run off, end ing that suit. West was put in the lead with dummy’s last diamond. West held - neither heart nor club to lead, and neither declarer nor dummy held another diamond. The stripping process had been completed. West had to lead a diamond, al lowing one member of the declaring team to ruff, while the other dis carded, or else West had to lead a spade, that could beat the contract only in case East held the K-J. back of dummy’s Q. Like any trained player. Weston knew that he must win one spade trick if he obliged an adversary to lead that suit. With the A-K-10-9 missing, probably op ponents would wiu three tricks, 1f South had to lead the suit. Trie strategy had been, first to capture the missing Q of trumps. Next to oblige opponents to lead the dan gerous spade suit. West led his Ace of spades. East gave him a come on, East won the third defensive trick. South went game and rubber, by profitable thinking. Mrs. James Horner .

Waldrop, who has for 15 years been trying to build phy sically safe highways, was the mJjor casualty of August. Judicial determin ation of that kil.ing is waiting. Wheth er Mr. Waldrop was the victim of any body’s carelessness is not settled. But he met death on roads that he was helping to build and maintain. The annual report nSade to cover July 1, 1933, to July 1, 1934. showed 9 ! CB dv.ths, 5,482 injuries, 3,855 acci dents and $38,900,000 losses in prop erty. One interpreter of mis maining and killing says the property losses alone double the cost of the state school system for eight months. And these losses do not reckon with the waste incident to the damage. There is a vast 1033 in wages, in medical costs and in the destruction of earn ing power. Many accidents that do • not finish their do leave them without power to make their own way. On economic basis alone the afety association fe?l sthat it can make a good excues for its existence.: The financial waste is an appalling in its propoitions as is the 1033 of life itself. The 903 deaths in the year makes the automobile a slayer a? deadly as the worst epidemics. The safety association has not felt quite ready to make a big onslaught upon the drivers. Educaton, the as sociation feels, in the use of tiie high ways and the machinery which runs over them, will bring down The mon strous total of these killings. Then with instruction will go measures of prevention, publicity of the astound ing facts, emphass upon the deaths and the destruction., organization of safety leagues all over the State. Then there will be legislation which would rvise and codify the existing statutes, a uniform set of municipal ordinances for traffic regulation, a drivers’ li cense law, educaton and legislation wedding and living happily, to be' hop ad. Law enforcement is the third ele ment. To get information to the peo ple there would be newspaper and ma gazine articles, addresses before cvic clubs and othr public gatherings, State wide cnotests for the adoption of traffic safety slogan. State wide assay contests on prevention, State wide oratorical conests a course of n struction for study by _ hte women’s i clubs and other organiizaitons, use of the radio, davocacy of accident pre vention awards, and organization of safety units ah over hte State.

The immensely im proved agricultural conditions, the high prices of tobacco and cotton mean many more automobiles on the roads.
