About 75 doctors from eight counties attended the semi-annual meeting of the eighth (N.C.) District Medical Society, held in the auditorium of Reidsville High School. 

Twenty-one of the 26 physicians in Rockingham County participated. 

Among those presenting scientific papers were Dr. C.V. Tyner of Leaksville, who spoke on "Headaches and Eye Strain," and Dr. R.W. Foster of Madison, who reported on "Forensic Medicine." 

More than one-half of the $200,000 capital stock has been subscribed for a furniture factory proposed for Leaksville. ... Rockingham farmers Sharon and Friddle sold their entire load of 1,212 pounds of tobacco for an eye-catching $59.90 per hundredweight at a Winston-Salem auction warehouse. ... The new Palovi movie theater opened in Madison, with a full house of 750 watching the first movie shown there. 

A committee has been named to decide whether First Baptist Church in Reidsville should remodel and add several Sunday school rooms or build an entirely new church. The need for more space was evident this summer when the Baraca class held its meetings under the oak trees outside the church to open up space inside for other classes. ... The Orange Presbytery will hold its spring session at Spray Presbyterian Church. The Rev. J.S. Cook of the Spray church extended the invitation at a meeting of the presbytery at Mebane this week. ... Floyd Wilson, 12, was treated in Reidsville for a gunshot wound to the leg sustained while he and others hunted near his home three miles southeast of Reidsville. He was shot accidentally by another member of the hunting party. The wound is not considered serious.
