' THREE CHANGES BANKING CIRCLES J. T. Stajnback Resigns First National and will be Succeeded by W.T.Councill H. H. KING GOES TO ROSEMARY CH0C0Y0TTE COUNTRY CLUB ORGANIZED Directori Elected, Committees Appointed ud Purchue of Site Authoriied. Golf Courie and Tennii Courts Plumed. ' son. Three changes of personnel in banking circles at one time is likely to be the record for this community for some years. It started with the resignation o Mr. J. T. Stainback as cashier of the First National Bank of Roanoke Rapids. Then came the election of Mr. W. T. Councill to succeed Mr. Stainback at the First National and the 'election of Mr. H. H. King, Assistant Cashier of the First National to be cashier of the Rosemary Bank ing & Trust Company, succeed ing Mr, Councill. Mr. Stainback s resignation was caused by the fact that the affairs' of the Herald Publishing Company, in which he is largely interestedneeded all of his time and attention. . He remains a Director of the First National Bank, but his energies from n6w on will be devoted principally to the Herald Publishing Company and the Roanoke Rapids Build ing & Loan Association. Mr. Councill comes to the First National as no stranger to the community. His efficient ad ministration of the affairs of the Rosemary Banking & Trust Com pany and the attractive person ality which have won for him so many friends since he has been a citizen of the community augur well for his success at the First National. Mr. King's promotion to the Cashiership of tha Rosemary Banking and Trust Company will be noted with" pleasure by his many friends in this com munity. It comes as a deserved recognition of his loyalty and efficiency and few men in the State at his age have ' made greater progress in the banking profession. WORK BEGUN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE The Chocoyotte Country Club was formally organized on last Tuesday evening when twenty eight of the stockholders met in the Mayor's Office of the town of Roanoke Rapids, adopted the charter, . elected directors and RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED BY . MEN'S BARACA CLSSA, METHODIST CHURCH. FIRST NATIONAL INSTALLS VAUL Mrs. W. C. Allsbrook " Entertains One of the social evepts of the season for the 'Baptist Church's young, people took place on last Tuesday evening, when Mrs. W. C. AllsbrooK entertained her Sunday School class and the Ju nior Choir. After singing a few hymns to be sung Sunday, the party went out on the lawn and indulged in some genuine sports - not back to the primitive, but surely back to wee childhood days. "Drop the Handkerchief" and "Rat and Cat" were enthusiastically en joyed. . After the out of doors games the party gathered on the piazza and exercised their vocal cords again by singing, popular hits and songs of "ye goode olde days". Last and best, the alimen tary canal was fed the most de- icious desert ever served on a warm, midsummer . evening. Before partaking of the refresh ments, thanks were rendered to Him above by singing reverently Day is Dying in the West" ld by Miss Minnie Daughtry and Julian Allsbrook. The party adjourned by sing ing ..Uoodnlght Ladies" and other songs to Mrs. Allsbrook. Everyone present heartily agreed that the party was the most successful one of its nature ever attended. ' authorized them to purchase f site for the Club from the Roa noke Rapids Land Company and to proceed to get the club into operation. -The site selected for the Club is known as the "old Zollicoffer place" located about halfway be tween here and Weldon. The track contains about three hun dred acres of land, stretching from the Roanoke Rapids-Weldon road back to Chocoyotte creek, from whence the Club derives its name. The Club will be admir ably located both from the view point of accessibility for mem bers from Roanoke Rapids and Weldon and suitability for the construction of a golf course. The Club plans to either remodel the house now standing on its land or to erect another house for club purposes. The land will be plant ed in peas immediately and sown in grass this winter. The first Board of Directors will be composed of Messrs. J. T. Chase, C. R. Emry, Job Taylor, F, Patterson, J. A. Moore, C. A Wyche, W. T. Councill. W.kLong, A. C. Zollicoffer, Geo. C. Green and T. W. M. Long. The membership committee is composed of W. L. Manning, Chairman, and Messrs. A. C. Zol licoffer, Geo. C. Green, S. M. Gary, F. F. Patterson, F. G. Jar man, T. W. Mullen and G. S. Council!. It is the Club's plan to have, in addition to the golf course, tennis links, a swimming pool, and a club house with dining hall and dancing room. If the plans now formulated are carried out, the Chocoyotte Country Club should certainly prove a valued addition to the social life of this community and Weldon. Whereas through the efforts of our Honorable Mayor, Dr. T. W. M. Long and Town Commission ers our community has greatly bentfited by the apprehending and cleaning out of many liquor dealers and other lawless charac ters, and WhereawTsSthe' members of the Baraca Clas's of the s'MJtho- dist Episcopal Church appreciate this good work from those who have proved their loyalty to the highest ideals of duty and service to the community, therefore be it Kesolved that this expression of appreciation be transmitted to our Mayor and Commissioners with the assurance that we are with them in this great work.

Con ferred the 3rd Degree on . one candidate, to a very good atten dance. Owing to the severe warm weather the members do not at tend regular. The officers were elected as follows: C. 0. Byrd, Noble Grand, L. W Jernigan, Vice Grand, C. A. Dickens, Rec, Sec, M. R. Vick, Fin., Sec, R. B. Powell, Treasurer. Next Monday night Bro. 0. L. Smith, Lodge Deputy, will install the above officers. The Lodge starts the last term of 1921 with better prospects than it did with the first term. The above named offi cers are all residents of this vil lage and they are promised with great things for their term of office: Visitors always welcome. Installation is being completed this week in the First National Bank Building of the most effi cient type of burplar proof vault modern science and engineering has been able to construct. The vault proper consists of three plates of steel, one of armor plate, one of non burning stee! and one of Bessemer cold rolled steel, securely bolted to each other from the inside of the vault, The door is of circular type, eighty inches in diameter and is made of Manganese steel, twelve inches thick. It is governed by a four clock time lock mechanism and two combination locks. The vault and door were man ufactured by the Mosler Safe Company, of Hamilton, Ohio, at a cost to the bank of approxi mateiy fifteen thousand dollars. Considerable difficulty was ex perienced by the Mosler erector in getting tne door of the vault from the freight siding at Roa noke Rapids to the vault location. The door alone weighs twenty thousand pounds and when load ed on the heaviest trailer that could be procured in the county, promptly crashed through to the ground, the well braced girders of the trailer collapsing under the strain. It finally had to be hauled to the bank on rollers on a wooden track. This vault is the only one of its kind in this part of the State and those who may be interested in this most modern mechanism for safeguarding wealth from those who might attempt to "break through and steal" are cordially invited by the bank officials to come in and see the new vault for themselves.

I desire to call to the attention of the taxpayers of this District that the provisions of the Reve nue Act ot 1918 require all cor porations, associations, joint- stock companies, whether creat ed by statute or by contract, and insurance companies, whether or not organized for profit or hav ing a Capital Stock represented by shares to file during the month of July Capital Stock Re turns, Form 707. Every corporation must file a return, Form 707 whether taxable or non taxable Companies claiming exemption as "not en gaged in business" areas "hold ing corporations," "inactive" "simply holding undeveloped mineral or timber land," "leas ed," "personal service," and "non-taxable," are required to file a return and attach a letter, preferably an affidavit, setting forth clearly the reason they should not - be subject to tax. Banks and Insurance companies, however, are permitted to attach their annual publishedstatements in lieu of filling out Exhibits A, Exhibits B and C must be completed. Since all Capital Stock returns are audited in the office of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, it is absolutely essen tial that each corporation com plete Exhibits A, B and C, of Form 707 in full; ptherwise, the companies win oe caiiea upon through correspondence by the Commissioner of Internal Reve nue to supply this information which will be a source of great annoyance both to' the taxpayer and the Government. Both parent and subsidiary corporations must each file separ ate returns, Form 707. Consolid ated returns for parent and sub sidiary are not permitted under the Capital Stock Law. Capital Stock Tax is an excise tax, payable in advance, for the privilege of doing business based Upon the invitation of Sheriff Joyner, of Northampton, local officers have been engaged in a series of raids in that county up on blockaders that have netted during the past week three dis tilling outfits and three alleged distillers. One of the town of Roanoke Rapids garbage cans, fitted with copper cap and galvanized iron worm was found-running at full blast in a dense thicket on James Squire's farm on last Friday night. The raiding party, consist ing of Officers Jackson and Bis hop and Messrs. Will Massey and Winfield Crew succeeded in slip ping past the guards and get ting right on the still before they were seen by the operators; in fact, they lay concealed in the bushes and watched the operators start the fire under the still. When they rushed the still Officer Jackson recognized Elmo Squires, son of James Squires, who seized a shot gun with the intention of opening fire upon the officers. ' He wasn't quick enough for Jackson shot first, with the result that the shotgun was discharged in the air and the negro fell sprawling. Before the officers could get to him, however, he had regained his feet and succeeded in making a hasty exit with the shotgun through the brush. The rest of the crowd scattered like partridges eaving tne oiticers in possession of a going concern. Another raid made an hour or so later resulted in the seizure of an eighty five gallon copper still and two hundred and fifty gallons of beer. This outfit was found near Essom Turner's house, but was not running and the owner is unknown. Saturday morning James Squires, Garris Squires and John Vincent, all colored, were placed under arrest by Officers Jackson and Bishop, the two latter charg ed with operating the still, and James Squires with having allowed the operation of a still upon his farm. Elmo Squires of shot gun fame, had departed for parts unknown. About the most sumptuous af fair in the illicit distillation busi ness was unearthed by Officers Jackson and Bishop on Saturday night when they seized a fifty gallon, factory made, copper out fit near Warner's bridge in Northampton county. The fur nace was of brick construction with s roof over it and at a little distance off was found a low shack with a basket work bed in it where the toilers apparently rested from their labors. The officers suspect that the still is the property of West Johnson, who could not be located. Ru mor had it that his grandmother was very ill in the far west, that Mr. Johnson had hastened to her bedside, and that his return was unforseen if not improbable. Mr. W. T. McCoy, of .Ralti. more, spent the week-end in . Rosemary. ' ' ' ' Mr. J. R. Sykes, of Norfolk' was in town Monday. Miss Mary Nor fleet Gmzard. is spending the week in Norfolk and vicinity. .'
