      Samuel P. Newman one of the oldest and best known citizens of Caswell county died at memorial hospital in Danville Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock from a fractured skull and other injuries received when he stepped in front of a moving automobile in front of his home. Mr. Newman who was 75 years old, died a short while after he was admitted to the hospital. J. E. McFarland who operates a filling station near the home of Mr. Newman was an eye witness to the accident drove the injured man to Danville in the same car that struck him, and he was transferred to an ambulance and rushed to the hospital.

      Guy Tripp, a prominent citizen of Washington, N.C., was driving the car that struck Mr. Newman. He stopped and assisted in every way possible, but said that he was too nervous to operate the car farther and Mr. McFarland offered to assist. Mr. Tripp was cited to appear in Yanceyville Tuesday afternoon for a preliminary hearing regarding the accident, the outcome of which described the accident as unavoidable. Mr. Tripp was on his way to visit relatives in Virginia when the accident occurred. He did not continue his trip but returned to his home in Washington.

      Mr. Pink Newman as he was well known by everyone was one of Caswell's most prominent citizens. He was born about two miles from Leasburg and for 18 years was connected with the tobacco market in Danville. He has been a merchant in Leasburg for the past 10 years and was a consistent member of the church at Leasburg

      Samuel Pinkney Newman worked in the Banner Warehouse in Danville, Virginia, during the tobacco season but came home weekends. He was killed by his own car in tragic accident in front of his home in Leasburg on Hwy 158. His daughter, Annie Warner Newman, related the incident as follows:

      "Dr. Love and "Pink" Newman were at the Newman house in Leasburg and were getting ready to leave, in one of those new contraptions, a motor car. Pink got out to open the gate somewhere on the hill from the house down to the highway, and the car rolled down and hit him. He died, thus becomming one of Caswell's first automobile fatalities. Even having the doctor right at hand couldn't save him."

      Dr. Bedford Elijah Love, M.D. (1872-1944) is a nephew of the Margaret Elizabeth (Lizzie) Chandler (1860-1945) who married Samuel Pinkney (Pink) Newman (run over by his own car).

      The Registration of June 5, 1917

      The Governor of North Carolina issued an order that R. L. Mitchelle, Clerk of Superior Court, T. N. Fitch, Sheriff, and Dr. S. A. Malloy proceed immediately to register men for military services. This order directed the enrollment of all men aged twenty-one years to thirty-one years inclusive. The Board, as above constituted, with promptness and dispatch obeyed orders. A day was set in each precinct of the county and registrars appointed for the respective precincts to enroll men between the ages stated above. We append a list of registrars:

      Anderson Precinct: H. J. Hurdle, W. E. Simmons.
      Dan River Precinct: J. A. White.
      Locust Hill Precinct : J. F. White Jr., J. B. Watlington.
      Milton Precinct: M. C. Winstead.
      Semora Precinct: W. O. Smith.
      Ridgeville Precinct: W. L. Compton.
      Hightowers Precinct: W. H. Warren.
      Leasburg Precinct: S. P. Newman.
      Pelham Precinct: J. O. Fitzgerald.
      Stoney Creek Precinct: J. B. Turner and L. L. Lambeth.
      Yanceyville Precinct: Julius Johnson, Alvis Florance.

      These gentlemen discharged their duty as registrars in the most capable manner, and the registration of Caswell was so complete that the officers of this registration were highly commended. The registration cards were promptly returned to the Board, there being 1,011 cards.

      It was then necessary that a duplicate copy be made of these cards. The following persons offered gratuitous services and assisted in the copying of the cards: Miss Ruby Mitchelle, J. A. White; T. H. Hatchett; W. M. Burton; George A. Anderson.
