Superintendent Massey has som original ideas about the rural prob lem. He argues that the hack to the farm talk is not going to take many neople back to the farm, and espe cially in a county like Durham where the town is constantly making de mands on more people from some place. The contrary is certain to be the case. Instead of people going fjctcji. to tin, lurxn tney are in all like lihood going to the city from the iarm in the future as in the pa.st, and President of the United Staiey. 1 net officers, Federal and Stat ficialsw ill be in attendance am; ticipate on the program.

President so ;;: : A J-ha Catherine Williams, of Wallace, in the rolling eiiair donated to the (YoUI.shoro Hospital in memory of her grandmother, Mrs. Afslia Faison Colwcll Williams. Feb. S an interesting service was held in the parlor of the Goldsboro Hospital when a handsome rolling chair was presented to the hospital for the children's room. The chair was given through the David Williams Chapter, D. A. K. by the descendants and friends of Mrs. Asha Faison Col well Williams, this inscription ap pearing on a handsome brass plate attached to the chair: "In loving memory of Mrs. Asha Faison Colwell Williams, Born Oct. 29, 1832. Died Feb. 8, 1312. 'And a little child shall lead them Eulogies of the estimable lady whose memory was thus honored had been prepared by two of her grand daughters and namesakes, Mrs. Claudia Faison F. Carlton and Miss Asha Louise Wills and were read by Mrs. Williams, of Richmond, wife of CapL A. Sidney J. Williams, of Rich mond, the youngest son. Little Asha Catherine Williams, danrhter of Mr. and Mrs- David Avery Williams, of Wallace, N. C, youngest namesake and granddaugh- ttr, rolled the memorial chair into the hospital. Her picture is shown in the accompanying cut. The chair was accepted by Mr. George Royall, president of the hos pital. With the chair was presented a pillow with sprays of violets and the date Feb. 8, 1915, embroidered by Eunice Taylor, also a bunch of violets from Ethel Johnson, violets having been -Mrs. Williams favorite flower. Also a bunch of violet? from Ethel Johnson and risher Taylor with a vase from each with the request that the violets be distributed among the patients in the hospital. A singular coincidence was that the only child sick in the hospital at the time should have been one bearing the name Otis Williams In addition to the words of accep tance by the president of the hospital there was a brief acceptance of Miss Linnev. the head nurse, and the serv ice was concluded with a prayer by Rev. Peter Melntire, who was Mrs. : Williams pastor for a number of years. sub-divisions of finance, pro! distribution, and organization.
