Ex-Governor Owen died in October 1844 while visiting Henry Adolphus London, in Pittsboro, and is buried in the Epis copal churchyard at that place 6. Midway Academy was establish ed in 1822 in about the center of a triangle between Lcuisburg, Hender son and Warrenton. In making his announcement in 1828, Charles A. Hill principal, advised parents that he would "advise and admonish; where these fail, the rod will be resorted to, but with parental prudence.” I MY NEW YORK By JAMES AS WELL New York, July 4.—1 attended my first Greenwich Village party the other night, in nearly five years. I was prepared to find changes in the Bohemian hoopla of the quarter, a new aesthetic credo, perhaps; at the least, a novel pecadillo of derss or manners. All, all, however, went forward with a reminiscent and vaguely disappoint ing sanneness. The same willowy ladies, of a certain age, leading their own lives furiously in smocks. The same bearded young men, fighting the same battles of capitalized art. The familiar, doubtful gin bottles in rows on the kitchen floor. • As always a fiercely mustachioed artist did a pencil portrait'uF one of ii.,■ —— #SIAKfflf kIU aStory IS THE NAME SOMETIMES USED TO DESCRIBE THE ORANG UTAN, A MEMBER OF THE APE FAMILY AND NATIVE OF BORNEO ...IN THE YOUNG, THE FACE AND SKULL APPEAR ALMOST HUMAN...

DAILY DISPATCH, THURSDAY, JULY 4, 3935 tne young ladies always another, equally fearsofe Bohemian, drew forth a mandolin and plunked out prose poems to applause and the catcalls of a lone drunk in a corner. As always there was an unsatisfac tory burst of fistcuffs at midnight. Greenwich Village is as rigidly for. malized as a detective story for the pulp paper magazines. It will remain like that until Manhattan wakes up some candid morning to the realiza tion that the whole garret population has faded into the limbo of outworn institutions- Saints to the day! MUSIC NOTE Mr. Rudy Vallee, I hear, has in formed his intifates that he thinks he should receive credit (or blame) for the recent and now happily de flated chain-letter craze.

School Drivers Need Not Be 21 (Continued from Page One )< considering both the drivers’ license law and the school machinery law, much thought and discussion was de voted to the question of requiring adult drivers for school buses.” Mar tin said. “But, in view of the ex cellent record made by student driv. ers last year and in preceding years, the General Assembly decided not to require adult drivers but to continue the plan of employing student driv ers as far as State paiTicipation in the payment of drivers was concern ed. As a result, the school commis sion has made provision for student drivers only, although it has increas ed the allotment to $8.50 per month for these drivers as compared with only $7.50 a month paid them last year. The county boards of education, however, still have the privilege of increasing this amount and of em ploying adult drivers if they desire to, provided they pay the difference .from county funds.” In al etter to the Raleigh News and Observer and printed last Sunday, former Superintendent of Schools J. F. Webb, of Granville county, main tained that the new ISltate drivers’ license law required adult drivers for school buses and cited Section 5 of this law, which does require that drivers of "public passenger vehicles” in North Carolina must be 21 years of age or more. But it is pointed out here that a school bus is not a “pub lic passenger carrying vehicle” which term is used to designate vehicles which carry passengers for pay, such as buses operated by commercial bus lines or by taxicabs In his letter to The News and Observer, Supt. Webb also neglected to include the word “public” in suoting from this section of tfTe drivers’ license law. It was ex pressly understood in both houses of the general assembly that this section did not and should not apply to the operation of school buses. An effort was made by Senator Rivers John son of Duplin county to get a seo. tion included in the drivers license bill which would have expressly re quired the drivers of school fctises to be 21 years of age, but this cection was defeated. A later effort to have a provision inserted in the School Machinery Act to require adult driv ers of school buses was also defeat ed. The two principal reasons why the general assembly refused to rewire adult drivers for school buses was first, the fact that the records show ed fewer accidents with student driv ers than with adult drivers and sec ond, thd fact that the cost of operat ing the school transportation systfeitt would boost the cost of operating the schools by about $3,000,000 a year. The records showed that not a single one of the more than 265,000 children who were transported to and from school every day last year was killed in a bus accident, that three out of four of the school bus drivers were student drivers and that the student drivers proportionately had a much .better record for not having accidents than the adult drivers. Since the records showed that the student drivers were more efficient and had fewer accidents than the adult drivers the general assembly took the position that it was not just ified in increasing the school appro priation another $3,000,000 a year merely to provide adult drivers, es. pecially when the need for additional funds with which to increase the pay of school teachers and to employ more teachers was so great. The assembly had already decided that $20,000,000 a year was all it could provide for the schools, barely enough to provide a 20 per cent salary increase for teach ers. So if it had required adult bus drivers, the $3,000,000 more required to pay them would have had to come out of this appropriation and would have reduced the salary increase they would have received.

With the count 8 to 5 against them in the ninth, M. Jackson got a triple with two men on and Fox ‘‘squeezed” him home with the tieing run. Free hitting in the tenth drove in five runs for Middleburg, while Franklinton could get only three tal lies. Hendricks paced the Middleburg team at bat, betting four out of five two two base knocks and two singles. Brown and J. Lindsay led Franklin ton, each getting three out of five. The teams meet again at Middleburg Saturday. Score by innings: R Middleburg 020 300 003 5—13 Franklinton 001 023 200 3—ll Woodall, Hendricks, P. Ellington and J. Jackson. B.
