Irvin W. Davis
The best prospect and most popu
lar man in Caiterst County to suc
ceed Judst Luther Hamilton (whose
gubernatorial appointment male
him special judge on Tuesday) to the
post of Chairman of the Democratic
Executive Chairman is Register of
Deeds Irvi.i V. Davis, pictured a
bove. If I.vin Vir. Davis is not ap
pointed nxet-ative Chairman of the
Democ.atij ty of Carteret coun
ty it will bi djo to the fact that a
strong ebb tide has been flowing in
the party ra.iks during recent weeks.
Davis is a citizen of Davis, down
east in Carteret. Possible successor
of Hamilton as County Attorney is
uncertain with the present political
line-up in Carteret. Frequently men
tioned for the post have been Alvah
Hamilton, his cousin, of Morehead
City, A. Baker Morris of Morthead
City and M. Leslie Davis of Beaufort.
Hold Regular Meeting
Ey J. VV. STEWART
In addition to regular routine of
app:oving bills, hearing petitions
and dis:ussir;g the present financial
condition of Carteret county, three
important n;att?rs were brought to
the attention of the Board of Coun
ty Commissioners during their regu
lar ser-ion on Monday and Tuesday,
June 7th and 8th. First was the mat
ter of appointing a member of the
boaid )f welfaie.
The last legislature created a new
r t up to take care of social security
and of the welfare for each county.
Under this set up the stat2 board
p.; pointed r. member, the county com
mifsioners a member, end these two
members appointed a tiiirj member.
The state board appointed Mr. See
ley, Caitcret County's representa
tive. There was only one application
to t;ie county commissioners which
v.ps duly approved by them and that
was the application of A. Grady Wi!:
i? of Atlantic. -'ir. Said y and Mr.
V.Tiiis thin appoint : ! D Frank Hail
of Mo eh. i'd City as the third mt-m-b.v.
The two board.? Met ia join',
ression and appointed Mrs. Georgj
Hciuk-iron a:- Supt. of Welfare. M:;-.
H.mieison and her co-workers will
investigate all cases both in regards
to social security anJ welfare and
make her report to the newly estab
lished welfare board which in turn
will pass on the merits of the case.
However if the parties concerned are t
not satisfied with the disposal of the
case by the welfare board they may ,
make a final appeal to the county
The next matter brought before
the board was that ef the vocational
teacheis in the county. These teach
ers are paid jointly by the federai
government, the state and the coun
ty board of education. Supt. Allen
was asked to appear before the board
and present his views on maintain
ing these departments. The commis
sioners and the county attorney
made it plain that they were 100 per
cent for maintaining these ciepait
ments. Supt. .Allen likewise expressed
his desire to see these departments
continue. However he madeit plain
that in order to do so the commis
sioners must guarantee the board of
education the sum of $24,534 in
cash for the coming fiscal year. He
explained to the board that it would
be necessary to re-roof four of the
school buildings in the county, to
insure the school buildings of the
county against fire, and to make oth
er repairs, the sum necessary for this
would agregate $14,300. He explain
ed that at the end of the present fis
cal year, June 30th, thta all current
bills would be paid in full, and that
some bill contracted before his ap
pointment as County Superintendent
would be cancelled. He stated that he
and his board had alopted the policy
of not undertaking any project
which they knew funds to pay in full
would not be available for. The fu
tuie of these departments depended,
he said, on the cash that he could be
asrurtd to meet his budget. The a
mount necessary for the maintenance,
of the vocational departments was
$2,250. This was for salaries only
and did not include the purchasing
of supplies or equipment that miht
be needed. The board of commission
ers indicated they would take tha
matt-.'r of his budget requirements
under advisement and give their ans
wer in the near future.
The final important matter brought
to the commissioners' attention was
that of appointing an auditor tj aud
it the vaiious offices of the court
house at the end of lhe present fiscal
year, June 30th. After some dis;uv
sion of tha matter of fees, Great
house and Butler, public accountants,
were found to be the lowest bidder,
