Jerry Mack Ballenger is the
son of Mr. and Mrs. G. E.
Ballenger of Slater. Jerry has
been a Scout for approximately
two years and is Patrol Leader
of the Wolf Patrol of his troop.
He is a student in the sixth
grade in the local school and
is 15 years of age. Jerry Mack
is another fine example of
American youth, and his
pleasing manner and disposi-
tion endear him to both old
and young alike.

The rank of Life Scout is
next to the highest rank that
a Scout can earn. The highest
rank is that of an Eagle Scout.
Friends of Scouting here at Sla-
ter are high in their praise of
the accomplishments of these

two boys, for this is the first
time in the history of the troop
here that a Scout has earned
this rank. It is hoped these lads
will some day be Eagle Scouts.

Troop 44 has two Scouts who
are members of "The Order of
the Arrow," which is an ad-
vanced order of Scouting. To
be so honored, a Scout must be
elected to this position by his
fellow Scouts. Membership is
limited in this Order. The local
Scouts who hold membership
are Bobby Cole and Ansel Mc-
Makin, Jr.

and Mrs. W. M. Cole of Slater

Makin of Slater and is also a
High School student. He has
been a Scout for several years
and wears a star, as he is a Star
Scout. He is Senior Patrol
Leader of his troop.

Both of these lads are well
known and are very popular
with their fellows. By receiv-
ing this honor, these boys
testify to the value of the train-
ing received in this great youth

The local Scoutmaster is
Claude L. Sprouse and his
assistant is Hines S. Richard-
son. The progress the troop
here has made is largely due
to the splendid efforts of these
men, and is shown in the fine
way the troop and its members
are advancing. The thanks of
the community go to these men
in their contribution toward
building citizens of character
for a greater tomorrow.

Other denizens of the forests

as large macaws in all shades

"Happy birthday, dear children,
Happy birthday to you."

So goes our birthday greeting
to each of the following chil-

Will Cox, member of the
Boys' Library Club, who was
10 years old on October 15. He
is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Cagle

Tommy Cole, a son of Mr. and
Mrs. W. M. Cole of Slater, who
celebrated his eleventh birth-
day on September 15. Tommy
is a member of the Boys'
Library Club.

Betty Scarce, who was 7
years old on September 26.
Incidentally, we hear that Betty
is sporting a shoulder-strap bag
exactly like the one Peggy re-
ceived for her birthday. Betty,
a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L.
T. Scarce, is a member of the
Thursday Afternoon Story
Hour Group.

Jimmy Clary, a former mem-
ber of the Boys' Library Club,
was 13 years old on September
17. His parents, Mr. and Mrs.
James W. Clary, remembered
Jimmy's birthday with a pres-
ent he is really enjoying — a

Gloria Cook, a member of the
Friday Afternoon Story Hour
Group before moving to Greens-
boro, N. C., was 6 years old on
October 11. She celebrated with
a party and had a wonderful
time! Gloria is the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Frank A. Cook.

For each of these children,
we wish many more happy

As has been said so often in
this column, we always welcome
new library members. This
time, we are very proud to an-
nounce nine additions to the li-
brary roll. These new members
are: Curtis Teems, a son of Mr.
and Mrs. George Teems of Sla-
ter; Mrs. C. W. Eldridge, Slater;
Mrs. Edna Henson, Marietta;
Carol Ann Bellamy, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Buford Bellamy
of Slater; Roy Dodson, son of
Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Dodson,
Slater; Mrs. Nora Waldrop,
Slater; Mrs. Mary Sartain,
Marietta; Mrs. Edward Farmer,
Slater; and Miss Lelya Reid,

[Column 5]

Everybody blows hot at the
beginning of a crusade, and
America is a great place for
safety crusades. Someone is
always starting one, but too
many people lose interest just
when interest is most needed.

Because of this, we have these
accident figures for the past
year compiled by the National
Safety Council.

Here it is, under the head of
grisly reading: Killed in acci-
dents — 100,000 people; acci-
dental injuries—10,400,000
people; and accidental property
loss — $5,600,000,000.

That sum would more than
service the national debt for an
entire year. Home Sweet Home,
next to the automobile, was the
second unsafest place to be in,
with 34,000 persons killed there.
Automobiles got their gory
quota—33,500 deaths in traffic

There were, however, 35 cities
of 10,000 or more population
which did not register a traffic
fatality. There was nothing
accidental about these perfect
scores. They were obtained
through caution, alertness, and

Now, in the cold months of
ice and snow with slippery
streets, is not the time to relax
driving vigilance to and from
work. Now, of all times, is the
period to accentuate alertness
and caution in all matters which
require these qualities. To
exercise these qualities while
driving is to form the habits of
caution and alertness in the
work of daily life.

Midway along the Panama
Canal is a famous island, Barro
Colorado, which the march of
progress turned into a natural-
ist's paradise, says the Middle
America Information Bureau.
Barro Colorado is situated in
what now is the middle of
Gatun Dam. Once the lake was
a dense jungle, inhabited by
tropical animals and reptiles.
When the Gatun Dam was
built, engineers flooded acres
of this forest land. As the
waters rose, the animals sought
higher ground, with the result
that the hilly Barro Colorado
became an animal preserve,
visited today by zoologists and
botanists from all over the

Lloyd T. Scarce and George W. Pridmore, two Slater
Supervisors, are seen playing checkers at the conference for
supervisors held sometime ago at Blythe Shoals. It is reported
Mr. Scarce was the winner, and that he was so elated and
surprised over his victory he jumped six feet in the air.
