Junior Woman’s League

Nancy Langley had been installed as president of the Albemarle Junior Woman’s Club at the organization’s annual installation banquet at the Heart of Albemarle.

Others receiving their oaths of office as officials of the club included: Mrs. Robert Cheatham, first vice president; Mrs. Jim Hicks, second vice president; Mrs. Eugene Tanner, treasurer; Mrs. Olin Griffin, parliamentarian; Miss Jerry Lou Holbert, corresponding secretary; and Mrs. Farrell Austin, recording secretary.

Mental Health

Stanly County should move in the direction of a full time mental health clinic, and probably seek to join in such efforts with adjoining counties.

That was the advice given to the directors of the Stanly County Mental Health Association and other interested persons by Dr. Stratas, assistant director of the North Carolina Department of Mental Health.

Speaking at a luncheon meeting at the nurses’ home of the Stanly Hospital, Stratas praised the efforts made locally by Mrs. Cedric Squires, Dr. Claude Ballenger and others who had worked to bring about an active mental health organization and clinic, and an awareness of the need for action in this field.

No Accidents

Stanly Fixtures Manufacturing Company had ben honored by the Kemper Insurance Group for its outstanding record of 513,615 man-hours without a lost time accident.


Mary Fisher, a rising senior, had been selected assistant to the director of news and publications next year at St. Andrews Presbyterian College in Laurinburg. She would write news releases for the college, its students and activities for newspaper and other publications throughout the state.
