IDLENESS AND DEVILTRY
Elsewhere in thib issue of The
Enterprise is a note that Mayor
Jim Joyner declared a holiday for
his municipal court last Saturday
morning because all the defend
ants wanted, and needed, to work
in tobacco. Mayor Jim evidently
realized that humanity has few
ills that hard work and initiative
can't cure. Two thoughts stand
out in regard to the Mayor's de
cision. The first is that if the
defendants had been working as
they should in the first place,
they probably never would have
become entangled with the law;
the second is that, if they are
found guilty, they will probably
need the extra day's wages to
settle with the court for straying
from the straight and narrow.
The defendants should benefit
by the holiday.
A BIT OF PRODDING GOES
A LONG WAY -
Organizations backing the move
ment to obtain better out-of-town
telephone service for Farmville
deserve a pat of praise from every
person who uses the system.
Because of the vital service they
render, ^public utilities are grant
ed franchises which closely re
semble monopolies whose rates,
and activities are closely super
vised and guided by the State.
There is certainly nothing wrong
with this set-up.
It is true, however, that occas
ionally operating companies fail
to render the service expected of
them. There is no immediate
threat of a competing company in
stalling lines which parallel theirs.
The "perking up" comes when
dissatisfied customers lodge com
plaints with the State agency
which supervises the controlling!
company and which holds power
to grant franchises.
That the Carolina Telephone
and Telegraph Company is al
ready taking steps to render de
fects pointed out is ample evidence
that it is sincerely interested in
improving the service. Farmville
citizens should be thankful that
only a prod was necessary, and
thankful that they have the type
of organizations willing to do the
ILLS WE KNOW NOT OP
While Congress played tug-o'
war with-re vised OPA legislation,
prices continued their upward
spiral and the end of the rise ap
parently was nowhere in sight.
Opinion is divided as to the final
outcome. There are those who pro
fess to see in their crystal balls,
or tea leaves, a levelling off pro
cess and a gradual lowering of
prices as production lines hum
with activity and supply once
more catches up with demancL
Others, who see no prospects of
immediate relief, believe priees
will get higher before they begin
falling. Some inclined to be
alarmists fear that eventually the
entire price structure will col
lapse. Both schools of thought
agree that throughout this tran
sition, the low man on the totem
pole?the goat?will be, as always,
the consumer?you and I and the
folks next door,
Although post mortems some
times are futile, the man in the
street regrets that the more ob
jectionable features of the original
OPA could not have been elim
inated without abolishing the en
tire price control system, thus ne
cessitating starting from senatch.
