Vance Farmer Pays $2.50 Debt Owing For 56 Years A Vance county farmer who has always been known for his In tegrity and high motives, has just settled a debt he incurred 56 years ago amounting to $2.50. It was for services from his family physician at that time, who has been dead nearly half a century), but the $2 50 was paid to be divided be tween the two daughters of the deceased who have for years re sided in Arizona. The aged farmer, who is near ing his 80th milestone in life, came a few days ago to A. H* Cheek, assistant cashier and sec retary of the Citizens Bank and Trust Company, and told him that he owed the money, and that, while he had not deliberately in tended to withhold the amount or the obligation, it had never been paid and he wanted to get the load off his conscience. The debt was incurred to Dr. Alexander Jones, an uncle of Mr. Cheek’s and a brother of the late Colonel T. L. Jones, who died some eight or ten years ago. Mr. Cheek took the money and sent CONVENTION CLOSED WEDNESDAY AT NOON Approximately 60 Delegates at Sunday School-C. E. Meeting at Epsom The Forty first annual Sunday School and Christian Endeavor con vention of the Congregational Chris tian Church came to a close Wednes day at noon, after a two days session at Liberty Christian church. Epsom. Representation was had from four teen churches, with approximately 60 delegates enrolled, also a number of ministers, Sunday school superintend ents, teachers and vis'tors present. .‘lev S E.

This progress was considered on a per esntage basils consisting of three items, enrollment, attendance and contribution. The delegates to the convention have a large vision of the task of build i"g better Sunday school and Christ ian Endeavors The message of the speakers were very instructive as well as inspiration al . To CCC Camp Charlie Warren was in Raleigh Wednesday for a physical examination before being sent to one of the CCC Camps in North Carolina. Henderson Daily Dispatch it to Dr. Jones’ two daughters in Arizona, telling them that the Vance county planter wished to ease his conscience by paying the obligation. He asked for a receipt, which was sent, with the notation by the sisters that they would like to use the money to buy some medal! or memento of some sort to be sent back here for presenta tion to the farmer as a token. The sisters, of course, knew nothing of the obligation, and it is doubt ed if any one did, other than the debtor. Without any reflection what, ever on the good farmer, Diogenes can now blow out his lantern, for a man who is genuinely honest has really at last been found, and here in Vance county. Some who heard of the incident today wondered what the debt would have amounted tol if in terest had been added and com pounded over the 56 years since the debt was incurred.. Nobody took the time to figure it out, but it would have been sufficient to pay a lot of debts, and big ones at thait. VANCE C.E.

Henderson Association Re ports 880 Loans for $216,- 000 in 1935 EXPECT IT ALL BACK 100 Percent Collections Looked For Iri Fall; Raleigh Meeting Is Largely Attended From District A conference of presidents, secreta ries and directors of production credit associations held at Raleigh on July 18 was attended by all of the directors and the secretary-treasurer of the Henderson Production Credit Asso ciation . At the conference, loan policies, pro cedure and other matters in which the various associations are mutually in terested were discussed. This meet ing. it was announced, is one of a se ries now being held over the entire third Farm Credit Administration dis trict comprising the states of North Carolina. South Carolina. Georgia and Florida, and is in keeping with the program of the administratio nto have the leaders confer and exxchange ideas so that the credit service offer ed by the associations might come as nearly as possible to meeting the de mands of the farmer. At the meeting the Production Cre dit Corporation of Columbia was rep resented by Ernest Graham, presi dent, who reviewed the splendid pro gress which has been made by the as sociations in this district since their organization in the early days of 1934. He stated that in order for the asso ciations to succeed as they should that there must be sacrifices made by the officers and directors, and that the men who had been chosen to lead these organizations had shown a splendid spirit in the conduct of these cooperative farm organizations. The 97 associations in the four states on May 31, 1935. had made short-term loans totaling over $12,000,- 000, a substantial increase over the same date last year. These loans, it was pointed out. had been made on a sound business basis and in the be’ief that they would be repa'd 100 per cent. Only by maintaining a splendid repay ment record will the association re main in position to secure money for production purposes at such low rates of interest, it was pointed out.

Clements Motor Co. Phone 437 LIQUOR STORE NOT TO SELL EVERY ONE Men Known To Be Habitual Excessive Drinkers Can not Buy Goods OFFICERS WILL MEET i City and County Enforcement Autho rities WiU Be Asked by Con trol Board To Hew To the Line "While Henderson has a liquor store, where alcoholic beverages are soid in bottles, it is not every one that can make a purchase, and, under the regu lations, a number of men known to be habitual excessive drinkers have been refused the right to make pur chases during the joeriod this week since the store began business last Monday. Thursday was the biggest day in cash receipts the store has had since it opened, it was learned today. Henry T. Morris, a member of the control board, said today it was plan ned for the board to hold a meeting, probably next week, with officers of the law—enforcement men—in both the city and the county, to demand of them complete cooperation in break ing up illicit liquor sales in the coun ty. They will bo called upon to make arrests and to close up places that are selling liquor in any fashion and of any kind, whether bonded or bootleg ger brands, and whether in pint, quart, or gallon bottles or fruit jars or merely a drink at a time. Members of the ABC board, who have charge of the store, have ex pressed the determination to see that the illicit liquor traffic is stamped out in this county since it has become possible for alcoholic beverages to be obtained legally. They take the position that they are duly appointed officers of the county, that they are working for the county, and that they are not personally in the liquor business, but are merely the representatives of the people of the county, following the election three weeks ago which authorized the legal sale of liquor in the county. Directing attention to the distinc tion exercised in the sale of iegal li quor, a board member today cited specific instances in which sales had been refused.
