Judge Allen H. Gwyn, a candidate for the state Supreme Court, told a statewide meeting of Credit Women's Breakfast Clubs that "while financial credit and monetary purchasing power are important and must be preserved, it is even more important to build character credit."
Gwyn was the principal speaker at the annual meeting of the State Board of Credit Women's Breakfast Clubs, held this year at the Belvedere Hotel in Reidsville. About 150 representatives of 27 clubs attended.
Mrs. Mary James of Reidsville, president of the state association, introduced Judge Gwyn.
"We must build individuals who are dependable," Gwyn said in his address. "We must protect individual rights and maintain a strong balance of the spiritual purchasing power of the self-reliant citizen."
