J. H. Hines Skovgaard, the Danish Vio linist, who will appear in the High School Auditorium on Saturday night, February 11th, under the auspices of the High School, is an extromely large man, weighing nearly three hundred pounds and measuring six feet and three inches in height. Physically he is a worthy de cendent of that powerful race of Vikings whose commanding statues caused a feeling of awe even to the sturdy Romans of Ceasar's time. Conforming to the proverbial good nature of most large people, Skovgaard is also a most likable man and makes friends wherever he goes. But within his powerful frame is secreted a more potent force than any which the exercise of muscle alone could produce. It is the power to interpret the soul of music, and from the first stroke of the bow on the strings of his matchless Stradivarius violin, all sense of form and size gradually give way to a delightful sense of rhythm, melody, music. Stand ing on the stage this colossal Dane is only music. Each move ment of the body, while he is playing,, is nothing but music, and the expression on his face tells you plainly that he is far a way from you deep in "the land of tunes." Skovgaard comes to you not as a musical novice. His training under the greatest masters of Europe stamp him as 'a consummate musician, the finished, polished, purposeful." Moreover, Skovgaard i3an artist whose power has had time to mature and to gain those finer qualities of balance and resource of interpretation vyhich can come in no other way than by the steady development of the musician himself in devotion to his inborn and chosen art. His reportoire is practically unlimited and years of experience on the concert platform has maae him an adept In arranging his pro grams to suit the various re quirements to be reckoned with in touring the United States, the most versatile of all countries. Skovgaard carries with him an able pianist and accompanist and a delightful singer. .. "LISTEN IRENE" George E. Wintz producer of "Going Up", "Betty Be Good", "Cheer Up Mabel" and other high class musical comedies will offer the patrons ufthe Peoples Theatre on Tuesday, February 14th, his latest and greatest ef fort "Listen Irene." Thi3 pro duction is regarded as the leader of its kind in the class of stupendous musical shows. The company numbers 35 players comprising such principals as Nyra Brown, John G. Getz, Helen Janis, Bill Barbee, Betty Earl, Seymour Sisters, Tom Moran and the Elks Quartette. From a fashion viewpoint "Listen Irene" is declared to be a real pace maker. In the Fashion Girl number it is said that the model will wear $10,000 worth of gowns. The piece is in 3 acts and 13 scenes staged in a gorgeous manner, characteristic of Geo. E. Wintz offerings in other seasons. A lively chorus of Broadway Blondes, Brunettes and Titian haired beauties in feminine finery dance and prance on a gorgeous illuminated, jewel ed flirtation walk which extends back 20 rows into the audience J.

GREEN On Saturday afternoon the 4th inst, an accidentoccurred at Wei dor. that has cast a gloom over and saddened . the whole com munity. The two boys, the sons of men who have been and are widely known, Isaac E. Green, the son of that beloved physician, the late Dr. Isaac E. Green, and his friend, Walter E. Daniel, Jr., the son of Mr. Walter E. Daniel, were overturned in a canoe in Roanoke river near the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad bridge. They were thrown in the ice cold wa ters of the river which had be come greatly swollen by reason of the melting snows, . Both clung to the boat for sometime, and when it was about fifty yafds from the Northampr ton side of the river young Dan iel succeeded in swimming to the bank. Isaac told Bim to walk on down the bank that he would catcliatree. It is supposed that he was trying to save his canoe. This was the last time that the friends spoke to each other. The one reached the bank by swim ming from tree to tree, and went on down the bank expecting his friend to either join him, or seek a place of safety in a tree. Isaac reached a tree, and spoke to two small boys who were on or near the bridge, Frank Cole and Ar thur House, telling them to goto Weldon and get help arid a boat Young Daniel then went to a house of a colored man on the hill near the river, expecting Isaac to come at any moment. It required such a long time to go to Weldon that it was supposed that Isaac must have become be numbed by the cold and slipped back into the water. When found by those who came to rescue him his sweater had become entangled in a raft and nearly his whole body w"as submerged. Drs. More- head and Suiter worked untiring ly anft heroically in an attempt to resuscitate him for more than two hours, but it was of no avail. It is understood that life was ex tinct when his body was first taken from the water. Roanoke Mews. RECORDER S COURT FINES & FINDINGS Herbert Odom, drunk and dis orderly, donated $10.00 and costs.

M- Girl Scout Happenings The eighth annual convention of the Nationaj Council of Girl Scouts met in Savannah, Georgia, during the last week in January. Mrs. Warren G. Harding will serve as Uommander-in-chiet. The new president elected was Mrs. Herbert Hoover, who stands to the whole world as an ideal American woman, an ideal representative of America. The following are a few titles of the many interesting talks given: Educationol Value of Scouting, Carleton B. Gibson, Supt. of Schools of Chatham County; Girl Scout Camps, Mrs. Frederick Edey; 10,000 Captains for Girl Scouts Needed, Mrs. Hoover; Report on International Meeting Held Last October in England, Mrs. Juliette Law. Founder of Girl Scouting in America; Character Building in Girl Scout Work, Mrs. Arthur O. Choate, retiring president. Despite the heavy snow storm on Sunday, January the 28th, the Girl Scouts attended services at the Episcopal church. Scouting was presented in a new way to many. Each girl went away with an individual message, which she had received from the appropriate sermon which. Rev. Taylor gave in his usual simple direct manner. The talk was based upon the first Girl Scout promise-" I will try to do my duty to God and to my Country." Mrs. F. M. Brown and the girls are hard at work learning how to bandage, give first aid, and making up beds. We feel very fortunate in having Mrs. Brown who had has a great deal of experience in this line, gives us so much of her time and assistance.

Parent-Teacher Association The Parent-Teacher Associa tion of the Central School held its regular meeting Monday after, noon. In the absence of the president, Mrs. W. L. Long, the vice president, Mrs. Charlie Emry presided. The program was in the" hands of the School Improve ment Committee. After a short, interesting program by the child ren Mrs. Emry led a discussion on school improvement. She re ported that sixteen tree3 had been planted on the school grounds, and that some window boards had been placed in the room to improve the ventilation. Realizing the need of a play room on rainy days the committee proposes to raise funds to put a concrete floor in the basement. To raise this money they are going to begin by having a silver tea at the heme of Mrs. S. F. Patterson on March 18th. Any citizen interested in this project and wishing to make a contribu tion toward it may see Mrs. Charlie Emry, Mrs. S. F. Patter son or Miss Hearne. We hope that many will respond to this need. If sufficient funds can be obtained they want to extend the concrete walk around the entire building. For the better training and development of the children the committee is going to request the Board of Education to incorporate in their next building program plans for a gymnasium and a well equipped industrial art room for the Central School. fieri of Weight and Influence.
