CLEAN-UP WEEK . SEPTEMBER 3 TO 10 On September 10 Roanoke Rapids-Rosemary and the rest of Halifax County will be in a much more sanitary and healthful con dition than at present. On that date the city wagons will be seen hauling away great loads of trash and rubbish, tin cans and all filth producers. It marks the close of the final Clean Ud Week in North Carolina. This week will be devoted to cleaning up and destroying every worthless commodity capable of holding water in which mosquitoes can breed. It is the final effort of this summer to put our county at the top of the list in health and cleanliness. In calling on citizens of Hali fax County to observe this final clean up week, Dr. E. W. Larkin, County Health Officer, makes the following statement: “Next week will be the final clean up week for this year, 'and we want to make it the best ever known. We want to make it a real CLEAN-UP of everything that is not to be used this win ter. All tin cans, boxes, buckets, kegs, barrels, old auto tires, Glass-ware, old stoves, etc. in fact everything that has been or can hold water and breed mos quitoes. Our big fight is against filth, flies and mosquitoes, but while the cleaning is being done, make a good job of it and do away with all trash, old mat tresses- in fact everything that is not of enough value to store away and keep. We want a clean town free from so many flies and mosquitoes, that is a law and must be entorced, it necessary, for the public good, but we think civic pride will be all that is necessary for the town and suburbs to be thoroughly cleaned and sanitary. All trash, rubbish, tinware and everything must be put in one place, at a point where auto truck or wagon can get it. Begin early and be ready when the truck comes to move the trash. A house to nouse inspection will be made after clean up week, and if any vessels are found that can breed mosquitoes, the householder will have to have them hauled off and pay for hauling. Begin on Monday and have all rubbish on premises in one pile before the trucks start around, and be sure the trucks can reach the rubbish, otherwise the town will not do the Ruling free of charge. In he residental section the rubbish should be put on at curb, in busi ness section should be put in pile back of house so trucks can get same easily. Thanking you for your co-operation and help.” K.W. LARKIN, Health Officer Halifax County < Roanoke Mills Employees Go to Ocean View Great Throng Have Gala Day at Seaihote Over One Thoui and Go. The annual Ocean View ex cursion was run last Saturday morning with the greatest num ber of Roanoke Rapids people fo (?o that ever went on such a trip. The long train which car ried more than twelve hundred people left the town siding about six o'clock, and arrived at Ports mouth around nine. The Roa noke Mills Company did every thing possible toward contribut ing to the pleasure of its em ployees. Ferry tickets were given on the train before arriv ing in Portsmouth. Several boats were necessary to carry the crowd across the Elizabeth river to Norfolk. A long line of street cars were waiting to make the final lap of the journey to Ocean View. When the ex cursionists arrived at the sea shore they found the place wide open to them. Tickets to any amu ament could be had for the asking, and they sure were ask (1 for. Many of the visitors saw the ocean for the first time, as well as sea planes and battle ships. One of the group of bat tle cruisers at Norfolk fpr the Veterans of Foreign Wars Con vention passed by Ocean View on its way to the Naval Base. The excursionists rode the Leap-the-Dip, The Old Mill Stream, Dodge 'ems, Hobby horses, aeroplanes, went thru various weird places, took a swim in the salt water, saw the elephants from the New York Zoological Garden take a plunge in the briny deep, and reveled in the many interesting things and places for about eight hours. After a big and full day the crowd met in Portsmouth at eight o'clock and begun the trip home, arriving both tired, ha)> py, and sleepy at eleven o'clock. A similar excursion conducted by the Rosemary Manufactur ing Company for its employees will leave tomorrow morning for Ocean View. Fully as large a crowd is expected to take advan tage of this trip to the sea for a day of sight seeing and pleas ure. Long Against Further Airing Of Revenue Controversy Senator Lunsford Long has been to Raleigh, and as'chairman of the auditing committee which sought to interpret the late $43. 000 figuring on behalf of the state, the senator has discourag ed any further statements as to the meaning of that celebrated document. It has been printed more than once that President E. C. Brooks of State College and- Secretary \V. N. Everett of the Department of State would make a supple mentary statement which would greatly mitigate the bad impres sion which went out as the result of the several mix-ups with A. J. Maxwell, corporation commis sioner. The two had never oeen in the quarrel and felt that they could be trusted to state the facts. But when Senator Long came here he facetioously asked what the voluntary contribu tions could hope to ao by way of “explaining the explanation” made by the committee whose business it was to explain. The thing to amuse the secre tary of the state that he drop ped into the Long frame of mind, and it seems fairly well settled now that there will be no fur ther interpretative statements. There is an audit going on now in quest of the actual cash bal ance on hand, whether it be de ficit or surplus. And when that comes out it will be time enough to take on Maxwell if he decides to assault that finding. Audi tors are now at work on this statement ani| it is due several days hence. Accountants say it will materially disagree with the conclusions of Mr. Maxwell. It can speak for itself, but as for Senator Long, who is presi dent pro tern, of the Senate, he will be one of the most silent men Raleigh ever knew. And every effort will be directed toward preventing any further executive discussions of this financial condition. -All things ^ 4* f working toward the preser Home Demonstration Club Girl* Go On Annual Encampment The annual encampment of the Home Demonstration Club Girls of Halifax County was held at the Glenview School. August 13 to 17. Miss Bernice Allen, Home Demonstration Agent for Halifax County was in charge. She was assisted by Miss Doro thy Dean, Edgecombe County’s Demonstration Agent, who had charge of the recreational exer cises, and by Miss Pauline Smith, District Home Demon stration Agent, who assisted with class work. Mrs. VV. P. White, of Hobgood, Mrs. Bertie Brown, of Roanoke Rapids and Miss Edith Parham, of filler;,. were the official chaperones. The whole neighborhood for miles around were the bene factors of the campers, furnish ing from their gardens, hen j roosts and smoke houses good i things to eat of every descrip- [ tion. The excellent work done dur ing the week by Miss Allen and her associates is indeed worthy of commendation in the highest terms. The morning hours were devoted to classes in balanced meals, serving of meals, club girl etiquette, Jelly making and canning demonstrations were given before these classes by dif ferent club girls. The real con structive work of the week was done through this part of the lay. The afternoons and evenings were devoted to recreational ex ercises and grines especially those games in which physical exercises play a prominent part. “Setting up exercises” or calis thenics, were required as in most schools and in the army, during the early morning hours before breakfast . The after noon exercises was therefore of a different nature, being mainly recreational, swimming, run ning, jumping, potato races, three legged races were all in rogue and the girls enjoyed them to the utmost. Miss Dorothy Dean, of Tarboro, had charge of this part of the work. During the evenings, an audi ence usually gathered from the neighborhood to swell the num ber. Singing individually and collectively, was indulged in. Stunts were put on by different clubs and by individuals, some times to the amusement of part of the audience and the discom fort of the other part. The encampment closed Fri day afternoon, with a meeting in the school building of the club girls, their instructors and peo ple of the surrounding country. Mr. A. E. Akers was present for the meeting and addressed the gathering, as had Mr. N. L. Stedman, of Halifax, a member of the Board of Education on the night before. Mr. Akers stressed the need for getting every part of the County schools to function properly and in ac cord with those of every part of the County, and gave an inter esting sidelight on the enormous amount of work required of the office force of the County Super intendents office. Miss Fauline bmith, District Home Demonstration Agent, talked well and seriously to the girls and their parents about the necessity of taking club work and the lessons taught therein seriously and profiting by the work, reciting numbers of cases where dub work had made a bet ter neighborhood. Miss Allen thanked everybody for every thing that contributed to the success of the encampment, and stated that plans had been made for a larger and better work by the clubs during the next year, and for a good camp next year. Miss Aljen's work, although she is too modest to admit it, has hown excellent results and much credit is due her. At last but not least, the good people of Glenview School community deserve very honora ble mention for so ably assisting in making the encampment a success. They did everything possible for folks to do and then some. It is impossible to mention all their names, but their deeds will live after them in the hearts of the girls and their teachers. With such help as they gave the work of the Demonstration Agent and the Girls' Clubs has received a won derful benefit. vation of executive health and gubernatorial peace. It begins to look as if there may be a rest after all.—The Daily Free Press. [ROANOKE RAPIDS PERSONAI I AND LOCAL ITEMS Mesdames H. M. Hudson and E. 0.
