Mr. and Mrs. Louis Grimmer.
The ceremony took place in the

Coining to the Peoples Theatre Wednesday, February 22nd
Matinee and Night
The drama is as old as civiliza
tion. Its power to entertain
comes from the dramatic oppor
tunity to place before the public,
questions from real life, which
are convincing; that the lew
truths of living, which have
been generally accepted from
time immemorial, holds good in
any day and age.
In writing "The Unloved
Wife", Florence Edna May, used
"Truth" as a foundation, and
in the production which followed,
Miss May did not deviate from
the original theme. "Should the
woman be tied to the home, while
the man can do as he pleases? Is
it a fact that every married
woman at some time, thinks she
is unloved - - ?" Rather unusual,
you say, to bring to the theatre
the vital truths directly or in

Halifax Near East Relief
' Quota $4,500
Halifax county's campaign to
raise its quota of $4,500 for , the
Near East Relief this year was
launched Sunday with Mr. LT D.
Hayman of Weldon in charge,
according to information re
ceived from Raleigh, from Col.
George H. Bellamy, state chair
man. This money will feed, clothe
and educate 75 orphans of
Armenian martyrs who are now
in the five North Carolina orphan
ages at Trebizond. The Tarheel
state is savin? the lives of 3,334
of these helpless tots this year.
Josephus Daniels is honorary
state chairman.
Mr. Hayman has been at work
for sometime perfecting his
organization and reports Halifax
county ready to do its duty.
Many of these children were
made orphans during the Great
War when 300,000 of Armenia's
400,000 troops lost their lives in
defense of the Baku oil fields.
Had the Central Powers
captured these vast stores, Col.
Bellamy pointed out, they would
have prolonged the war many
months according to all expertsl
Had this teen the case there are
North Carolina boys back home
today who would now be sleep
ing under a wooden cross in
France. North Carolina cannot
see the children of these heroes
starve or freeze to death, he de
clared. Others of these children were
made homeless and helpless
during Turkish depredations into
Armenia when their fathers
were murdered and their mothers
carried off to Turkish harems
because they would not renounce
Christ and become Mohamme
dans. '

WHY NOT GO TO CHURCH?
Few persons think things
through.
If everybody reasoned this
matter ot church-going to its
logical conclusion, there will not
many vacant pews.
People do not stay away from
Church because they are opposed
to religion or the Church. Far
from it. Nearly everybody be
lieves that the Church is absolute
ly necessary to our civilization.

High School's Mammoth Auditorium
Friday, February 24. Cast of One
Hundred.
Do you believe that women can
exist without men? No matter
on which side of this momentous
question your beliefs may lie,
you will find the answer given by
"An Adamless Eden" amusingly
funny. Forget dull care and the
income tax and see the play
which will be presented in the
auditorium of the Junior-Senior
High School Building at Roanoke
Rapids on Friday, February 24,
at 8:15 sharp.
" in Adamless Eden" is one
of the most successful musical
comedies of a decade. Catchy
music, pretty girls, and comic
incidents prevent a single dull
moment from the rising of the
curtain to the end of the show.
The cast of one hundred is being
trained by Mrs. Frank L. Naeh.
whose ability in the organization
and conduct of musical comedy
productions is well known.
Among the catchy musical
song hits of the production are
"The Way We Live Now," "H
Kissed Me," "My Pal" "Princess
of My Dreams," "Cutie," "I
Can't Resist Them," "Dolly" and
many others. Staged in the mam
moth auditorium of the new High j
bchool Building, with its wonder
ful acoustics and one of the
largest stages in the State, the
presentation of "An Adamless
Eden" should mark an epoch in
the annals of amateur . produc
tions. Popular prices will prevail and
the proceeds are to be devoted to
the work of All Saints Episcopal
thurch.
Only One Way to Check
Tuberculosis
lo ellect a sure, permanent
cure of turberculosis in a few
days or weeks, by the adminis
stration of drugs, would cause
great rejoicing among those en
gaged in tuberculosis work and
among thousands who are mark
ed to die of tuberculosis this year.
Every little while someone comes
forward with wonderful claims
for this or that remedy for
curing tuberculosis. The National
Tuberculosis Association always
makes a thorough, scientific in
vestigation of these claims, as it
is well within the bounds of
possibility to discover a medici
nal cure or prevention for tuber
culosis, but to date there is but
one sure and tried method and
that is not by a short route. Rest,
fresh air and good food under
proper medical supervision com
bine the necessary routine to ef
fect a cure and those that for
sake this long but sure means of
regaining health for the short
cut of quackery will but find an
early grave.
A well regulated sanatorium is,
without doubt, the best and
easiest place to follow the neces
sary routine and secure expert
medical treatment. Unfortunate
ly everyone is not so blessed fin
ancially as to be able to remain
in an expensive sanatorium for a
protracted period. The State
Sanatorium, which makes a mode
rate charge for treatment, has
been fortunate in securing the
support of a few organizations in
the btate in endowinor a bed
which may be occupied free by
patients upon approval of the
commiuee naving the funds in
charge. The U. D. C. has been
especially generous in the work
and recently the North' Carolina
Federation of Women's Clubs
endowed as a bed a memorial to
Mrs. Cordie McBrayer, who serv
ed the Federation faithfully for
one year as Chairman of the
Health Department.
An investment of this kind
pays as is evident from the atti
l a t
tuae oi several large insurance
companies that send to a sana
torium any ' of their policy hold

tuberculosis,

to make money and they would
not expend large sums in treat
ing their policy holders unless
cures could be effected and the
patient returned to his com
munity as a producer.
A conservative estimate places
the net econumic value per year
of each producing male at $500.00
and surely no one will contend
that the ladies are worth jess
even u used for ornamental
purposes only. In a large number
ofcasses tuberculosis claims it
victims at an age when they ar
the greatest asset to the com
munity and any investment made
in preventing and curing tu
berculosis will certainly be re
turned to the State and com
munity many fold. It is hoped
that more associations and
organizations of various kinds,
as well as individuals who are
financially able, will interest
themsolves in securing treatment
for those in their community who
are not able to meet the expense
of treatment themselves. .This
