    Caswell County Bar Member Heart Victim
    Julius Johnson Succumbs at Yanceyville After Illness

    (Special To The Bee)

    Yanceyville, N. C. Sept 26 (1931). Caswell county was shocked today to hear of the death last night of Julius Johnson at his home here following a heart attack. Mr. Johnson who was a member of the 1931 General Assembly was taken ill during that session and returned here from Raleigh with a severe heart ailment. He never recovered from his illness though he had been able to attend his law office. Late yesterday afternoon he became critically ill and he died at nine o'clock.

    Mr. Johnson was 42 years of age and a native of Caswell being one of the leading members of the Caswell Bar. He was a graduate of the University of Virginia and after taking his law degree has been a member of the local firm of Ivy, Trotter and Johnson. He was unmarried but was known throughout the county particularly for his kindness and generosity.

    He is survived by his mother and the following brothers and sisters, John Johnson and Richard Johnson both of Yanceyville, Mrs. Annie J. Hoke of Yanceyville, Mrs. W. D. Bradsher of Roxboro, N. C., Mrs. E. W. Hatchett of Durham and Mrs. Allen Gwynn of Reidsville.

    The funeral will be held at four o'clock this afternoon from the home, interment to be in the Presbyterian church burial ground.

    From The Political Graveyard: Johnson, Julius - of Yanceyville, Caswell County, N.C. Democrat. Alternate delegate to Democratic National Convention from North Carolina, 1916. Burial location unknown.

    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.
