Rescue Squad Organizes: Faces Big Job Ahead Tabor City has become the e fourth Columbus County town to organize a rescue squad for the purpose of aiding in emer gency situations. Last Thursday night a group of town citizens met at the Wild Life Club and voted to form a rescue unit. Twenty three persons joined. Officers elected were: David McPherson, Captain; Howard H.'irrelson, 1st Lieutenant; Bill Burgess, 2nd Lieutenant; How ard Stanley, Chairman of th.· Fellowship Committee; and J. C. Gaskin, Chairman of a Committee to Solicit Dona tions. · This was primarily an or ganizational meeting. Ground work for the building of a rescue squad was laid. Meth ods of procedure were consid er red and waj s to raise money j necessary to buy essential | quipment were discussed. As of noon Saturday. Mc herson had deposited $170 in le bank for the squad and ad pledges of another $100 to e given soon. But still tu >ake this effort successful, IcPherson estimated that it ,'ould take another $500 to 700. An ambulance has ol iady been given to the unit nd several merchants in town romised donations if the iceting Thursday night was nccessful. Th.· ambulance is a 1952 'ddillac and was given by Fu era! Director Ralph Inman. It ί presently being remodeled nd painted. Certain tools will be needed hich might be found lying nused around the house. The ?scue squad will need a good jpply of axes, hammers, crow ars, flashlights, chisels, and picks. McPherson said he would appreciate anyone call ing him who would like to donate some of the hand tools mentioned above. Other pieces of equipment such as a resuscitator, portable stretchers, first aid kits, and delicate instruments must be purchased at rather expensive prices. This is the purpose for soliciting money. Guest speakers for the meet ing were Ed Hickman. Cap , tain and George Jones, Direc tor cf the Loris Rescue Squad. They were accompanied by Loris Chief of Police, Paul Ray Jones. Hickman told of several interesting incidents which the Loris unit had experienced in the past three years since be ing organized. Hickman pointed out that this was not just a glory or ganization and that the mem bers must love helping their fellow man in all types of work. "The squad doesn't need I too many men to do a job at | any one time but does need to j have several available," he ; said. Jones said that a rescue : squad should not act in a sit- I uation where it would compete with a funeral home but should j limit its service to emergency j situations. The purpose of a rescue ι squad is to deliver from con- | finement, violence or evil. This ! includes a lot of territory and as a result c:ills for many dif ferent types of equipment. For example, one accident may call for rescuing someone who had fallen into a deep well. The next call me be to cut a ; person out of a wrecked car. ! Also the duties of a rescue ! unit include searohing for lost persons, searching for the bod ies of drowning victims, and coming to the relief of persons in many other types of acci dents. Squad members must be strong minded as well as strong bodied for it will take a nerve of iron to endure some of the scenes which they will (Continued On Page 6) NO!

Tabor Jaycees Vote To Support College The Tabor City Junior Chamber of Commerce voted unanimously Tuesday night to send a letter of endorsement to the Community College Committee as a pledge of its support of the propose'd two year community college in Columbus County. · "The Tabor City Jaycees .will do everythtog in their power to see thlrt the com« munity college becomes j reality»" Eld red iMdttey, ty I cee president, said. 'Questions Answered On Community College " 1 hire is a üuod chance ι ι that we would get any money | ' we invested back quickly with interest." j ι These were the words of j Jesse Fisher, chairman of the I Columbus County Community : College Committee, as he ex- ι plaintd some of the economic factors involved in getting and keeping a two-year communi- < ty college in the county. i Meeting with a small, but ' interested group of Tabor City ■ citizens in the Red Bain Rest aurant Tuesday night, mem- I bers of the college committee 1 told the local group exactly what the proposed college would cost, what type of ι CCC Tourney Final Round ScheduledToday The annual club golf cham pionship of the Carolinas Country Club moved into tho final round this week with competition keen and interest at a high level.

"What would be the quality of the education received Pt such a community college?" asked Clayton Lewis, princi pal of Williams Township School. Fisher explained that com munity colleges would have to meet accreditation stand- 1 ards simitiar to those set by i the state for high schools. "Where would the faculty ."or such a college come from?" was another question raised by a member of the Tabor City group. Fisher and Council explain- 1 ed that to begin with most cf j the faculty could be drawn from the county's high school laculty members who hold graduate degrees .and are qualified to teach at the col lege level. To a question on the actual local financing of the college. Council replied that it was possible to start the college without a bond issue, if one of the county's present school buildings was used to house the institution. He pointed out that when the present high school consolidation program is completed, there will be at least one vacant school build ing in the county. The committee stressed that the proposed college woulc not only offer courses which would parallel study programs in senior colleges or private junior colleges, but would also offer technical and vocational training as well as short cour ses for adults. Fisher urged that civic clubs and individuals interested in seeing the community college become a reality write letters of endorsement to the college committee. "Before the State makes funds available to such a proj ect, it requires evidence that the people of the area really want a community college. Letters from local citizens are . uch evidence." Fisher said. Tenative Curriculum Set For Consolidated School West Columbus — Columbus | County's first consolidated1 school — was recently pre sented to the Board of Educa tion by county assistant sup erintendent John Hicks. In submitting the cirricul- j lum. Hicks pointed that the : suggested study program was j not firmly fixed and that the desire of the individual stu dent would be the final de ciding factor in the four-year course selection. Supt. T. Ward Guy told J Board members that the school j plans were moving through ! state channels in Raleigh on | schedule, and it is hoped that construction on the school's physical plant will begin this | summer. The consolidated school, wftnch will draw pupils from Fair Bluff, Evergreen, Ogxro Gordo, and Chadbourn, is be ing financed by part of a $2 million bond issue passed last November by county voters. | Approximately $500,000 of the bond issue will be spent in the consolidation program. Guy said hopes are that the school will be ready for pupils by the fall of 1964. Course description and the suggested curriculum is as fol lows: Science 1. General Science, a back ground course dealing with j areas of physical science, is a : required subject for ninth 1 grade students. 2.

Excitement and alarm among the hungry guests was greater than damage of the fire. After the smoke had been cleared away, one of the an xious guests asked if dinner still would be served. "Yes." Mrs. Todd replied, "if the house burned down, we'd still serve dinner in the yard." The fire was more smoke than anything else and was caused by grease spilled on the big gas stove which has be come a familiar landmark for Eastern North Carolina trav elers. Two big platters of crisply fried chicken were immediate ly carried out when it became apparent that a fire had start ed. When the excitemen died down, a few didn't wait for the tables to be set but seem ed contented with a chicken leg and a piece of bread.
