When asked how he liked the job
of being mayor, Ben Witherington
answered, “I think the job is O.K.
The mayor hadn’t arrived when Ii
got to his office so I went down and
looked, over the jail. When I re-^
turned to the mayor’s office, Mayor
Hill had arrived, and it was time
for court. The mayor told me what'
to do and court began with two cases.
Henry Ford, a Goldsboro negro, was
fined fifty dollars and costs for
drunkenness and disorderly conduct.
During the day I learned a good bit
about the job of being mayor.”
When interviewed by a member
of the Hi Staff, Jack Measley gave
the following report:
“Well,” said Mr. Spence, my as
sistant, “I suppose the new city clerk
wishes to get to work?” “I’m all
ready,” I responded. Then we be
gan work—and did we work I
After showing me ail the bock.;;

about five hundred pages and told
me to find an error in it. I failed,
We worked on taxes most of
the evening. I never knew there Avas
so much money in the Avorld as
there was on those tax books.
George Heyward, superintendent
of the water department, spent a very
profitable day at the Avater works,
testing and purifying water, and
making the daily report.
A. A. Scott, the real superintend
ent, showed George around and told
him how to operate all of the -ma
chines and testers of tlie plant.
Scout John Graham was fire chief
during this day.
“After the trucks Avere Avashed,”
said John, “I sat in one of them
for awhile. Then I- Avent over and
Avatched a card game. While the
men Avere playing, the iihone rang.
EA^erybody thought it Avas *a fire
