South, congregations in this city and iscction were closing their records today pre paratory to the departure of their pastors tomorrow and Wednesday for th’ annual .session of the North Caro lina Conference of that denomination, which opens in Wilmington next Wed nesday morning to run through Mon day of next week. The conference will come to a climax and to a close with the read ing of appointments by Bishop Paul Kern, of Greensboro, who will pre side. at noon next Monday. A final meeting of the official board of stewards of the First Methodist church here will be h?ld this evening for the purpose of closing the report for the year. Dr. J. M. Culbreth. the pastor, leaves Wednesday for the Wil mington meeting, to be accompanied by F. M. Barnhart, lay representative from this church. Rev. Mr. Eubanks, pastor of City Road church at North Henderson and White Memorial at South Henderson, will also attend the conference, as will Rev. B. O. Merritt, on Tar River circuit, and Rev. J. A. Dailey, of Mid dlcburg, pastor of that circuit. From all parts of Eastern North Carolina some 300 preachers and nearly that many laymen will gather for the conference. M. R EDITOR TELLS ABOUT CONFERENCE Relates Incident of Honor ing George B. Harris on Birthday Last week's regular issue of the Methodist Protestant Herald, of Greensboro, official organ of that de nomination in this State, carried gen erous reports of activities at the re cent conference in this city. Dr. J. E. Pritchard, former pastor here, is editor of the Herald, and spoke feel ingly of the hospitality of Henderson people. Included in the story about the con ic! enee was this paragraph: "The annual conference happened to be in session on the birthday of our venerable brother. George B Harris, who was 84 years young on that day. The conference took note of this great occasion by pausing to honor him." The conference reporter. Rev. J. L. Trollingcr, overlooked this incident in his reports to the Daily Dispatch. As to the entertainment here, Dr. Pritchard, who is a Greensboro pastor in addition to his editorial duties, wrote the following: "A report of the conference with out any reference to the pastor and members of the entertaining church and the people of Henderson in gen eral would be a monstrosity. While this was the pastor’s first experience, he did it like a veteran, leaving noth ing undone for the comfort and con venience of the conference. The church lived up to its fine reputation. This church has entertained the an nual conference so many times, it has become accustomed to doing it and getting very near perfection. The editor could not be in all the homes to see what was going on, hut he did have the feeling that he was in the best one in Henderson, that of the Hon. J. H. Bridget", who is not only a lawyer of ability but a former treasurer of the North Carolina An nual Conference, M. E. Church, South, and a. Christian gentleman of whom any community might be proud. Brother Bridgets is the leader of the prohibition forces in Vance county and is a leader to he trusted."

AUTOMOBILE FIRE CALLS OUT FIREMEN An automobile fire, caused by a short circuit of wires, called out fire men Sunday afternoon about 3 o’clock I to South Garnett street. No damage ; was reported by Fire Chief E. T. Shepherd, other than burned wires. Lookin' On By a Bystander I was one of those 46,880 lunatics who sat three to four hours in a driz zle of rain Saturday to see that Duke- Carolina game. Probably it is true that never before have that many crazy people been together at one time outside an asylum. But when that many folks will brave a misting rain, a breezy November wind, defy flu, pneumonia, sore throat, hoarse ness. and what have you, to see a football game, or even fight a war, there is a curious complex some where. eh? Well, at any rate I was there. And, boy. did old alma mamma do her stuff. L betcha there weren’t 880 of that crowd that had any real idea Duke would win that game. Our crowd got there nearly two hours ahead of game time—you see vve wore heeding the admonition of Ihe authorities to come early. We had to do something, and so. between a long brush with dear old Ed Earn hardt and W. C. Martin, wc just walk ed around the rim of the stadium from one flank of the horseshoe to the other. Alongside to port were three or four Carolina frosh—or at least undergrads—talking about the game. One of 'em said. "Soon as we make that first touchdown, my ticket to the Rose Bowl is ready." J just couldn’t help feel sorry for him after wards. Somebody said 500.000 cigarettes were consumed by the crowd during !he afternoon, hut I ain't seen no where any estimate of how many bar rels of liquor were guzzled. And. just lake it from me. it was evident on all sides. Couldn’t exactly recognize my that had a Henderson label on it, ut I gut no doubts plenty of that kind was there. Right hack of where wo were sit ting were some ladies who. shivering in that misty rain, produced a thermos bottle of hot coffee to warm themselves up some. A couple of guys nearby were all teed up and still tak ing it. They offered the ladies some, and when the said fair sex declined, the guzzlers commented they would go and get some zweiback (guess that’s spelled right, it's been several years since we needed any at our house) for them. But the fellows were juile generous. They offered all their neighbors drinks and insisted upon forcing their hospitality upon them. They said they had all kinds on them, just name your brand. Next row in front of 'is some fellows accommodat ed the hoys and accepted a bottle of their hospitality. Needless to say the bottle never came hack. One fellow out there was drinking white lightn in’ and chasing it with red liquor! But, aside from the remorse of those who v/anted Carolina to win, every body had a good time. It was a great crowd. It was the biggest bunch of folks ever to look at a football game in the South. I never saw and never was in as big a crowd but once be fore —several years ago in the Yankee Stadium when 71.000 saw Babe Ruth fail to hit a home run. I was in the crowd then, but didn't see all of them, for a lot of folks were upstairs over head. Incidentally, it would be interesting if those who are priding themselves so much on statistics of the game would let us know just how many bad •olds there are around over North Carolina today as the result of sitting hrough four hours of drizzling rain Saturday afternoon. All I can say is i got mine—and a sho’ nuff one. But if it don't get no worse than the cold, I call it a good trade for what I saw and what happened. That will be all this time. & * £. f*" i^td®fii I THE LARGEST | | I Showing Ever Made in Henderson 4 I for Kiddies of AU From 90 Days : j | 'R'’” Old to 90 Years Young.
