PAGE TWO , FRIDAY, JUNE 4, IMS Carlcrei County News-Times A Merger Of The Beaufort Newt (est. UU) The Twin City Timet (est. 1936) EDITORIAL PAGE Check Thai Car ".r: The motor vehicle inspection lane is paying its second visit : to this county. Although lanes are. scheduled to return to towns ". throughout the state more than one or two times, the last time will come upon us before we know it and then there will be fraz il jried -nerves caused by waiting in line. The mechanics at the in- ipection lane will be rushed, and all will be turmoil unneces sarily. The inspection lane supervisor is begging motorists to bring 1 .their cars, trucks, and other types of motor vehicles for inspec tion now. The lane will operate in Beaufort until noon tomor row and in Morehead City until noon next Saturday. Reality: A Chamber of Commerce Beaufort's Chamber of Commerce is no longer a thing of the past. Nor is it a talked of possibility for the future. It's a re ality of the present. A Chamber of Commerce is a necessity in every town with a population over 2,500 and with enthusiasm shown at Wednes day night's meeting when ihe board of directors were chosen, this Chamber of Commerce should not fall by the wayside as did the one during the '20s and the other in the late '30s and early '40s. Enthusiasm is a strange quality, howver, where it concerns a project launched by a group of individuals. It's like a freshly opened bottle of soda pop. Tingling, invigorating at first, but as time goes on, it tends to' get flat. No more tiny bubbles, no more energy, no more effervescence. Those who participated in the earlier Chamber of Commerce are the first to admit that they failed because of lack of interest. It finally fell on one or two men to do all the work. A Chamber of Commerce, is not, primarily, a social organiza tion. Businessmen who join it with the thought of having a good time or merely gaining prestige by being able to say, "I'm a mem ber of the Chamber of Commerce," are kidding themselves and being unfair to other businessmen earnestly interested in building a town that will attract commerce. And attracting commerce is the objective of such an organ ization. Gaining this objective involves keeping an eye on serv ice by public utilities, making the town a pleasant place to live, providing opportunities for employment. All projects directly and remotely connected with making more money tingle in the cash register are the responsibility of the Chamber of Commerce. In the times between Chambers of Commerce, the Junior Chamber of Commerce has ably and willingly carried the ball. If the "senior" Chamber of Commerce accomplishes as much as the Jaycees have, Beaufort will hold an even more important place on the map. In The Good Old Days ' THIBTY-FTVB YEARS jCO P. B.

TEN YEARS AGO Senator Robert R. Reynolds was the principal speaker at the Me morial Day exercises sponsored by the American Legion and the Le gion Auxiliary last Sunday after noon. The Beaufort News was to have loud speakers placed in front of the office Saturday night so that election returns could be heard as soon at possible.

On the basis of experience in the past few years dusting should begin in the south ern partof the itate by June 5, if the weather is wet. In the cen tral part $f the state, the begin ning date should be around June 12 and in the northern counties, June 20, If the weather it dry, dusting may be dejaydd a week or ten daya. A contrasting set of color pic tures in the bulletin shows the im portance of frequent dusting. Plots that had been dusted very 10 days and after each rain retained their healthy appearance, while those not dusted were severely attacked by the disease. Enough dust should be used to completely cover the plants. Offices At Beaufort, N. C." Morehead tixy, n.,c N.- e. Press Assoc la Uoa at Morehead City, N.

Mel ville Broughton, who won a thump ing victory over Senator William B. Umstead in last Saturday's Pri mary. Possessed of an ncccnt like a Harvard man, n bodv like a black smith, a sharp mind, and a fcen sense of humor, J. M. Broughton m:iy bring new glory to the South. He will be able to look after him self in the US. Senate, whether it he the Democrats or the Re publicans running the show, have no worries about that. Sooner or later, he will become a national figure. With the South growing fast and becoming more important every day on the broad U. S. scene, Broughton might be come the first President nearly in 100 years from North Carolina. ONLY HOEY AND BROUGH TON With money spent lavish ly and organization handled effec tively, only Clyde R. Hoey and J M. Broughton -could have with stood the tremendous power gen erated by the generals in Senator W. B. Umstead's headquarters. Un til 11 o'clock Saturday night, there was doubt that Broughton could stand up against It. But stand he did by virtue of Baptist strength, the rural and labor vote, and gen eral mass appeal. But people are funny, particularly when they are voting. Mecklenburg, home of the new National Treasurer Joe Bly the, an all-out Umstead man. gave Broughton a hinge vote, but Wake, Broughton's home county and the area which gave him his start, went for Umstead. TWICE IN EIGHT By win ning, J. M. Broughton for the second time in eight years put the quietus on a budding political machine. He did it -in 1940 and again last Saturday. This grouD must now decide whether it will attempt to salvage something from Saturday's wreckage. Will it' go with Johnson ... chances are it w.'ll- . . , or with Scott? After looking at Saturday's returns, it would not Seem to make too much difference either way . . , If the people are on their toes pa June 26, date of the runoff. NOES In Alamance County, W.

Johnson carried . . . Bv "carried" we mean led in the voting . . in 52 counties, Scott in 43, and A1-. bright in five. Albright carried Burke, Edgecombe, Nash, North ampton and Washington. Gaston County stuck by its na tive son. Gov. R. Gregg Cherry, by giving Charles M. Johnson 4,468 votes to 1.287 for Scott and 1,182 for Albright. Cleveland County, home of the "Shelby Dynasty", went along with the machine as follows: 4,392 for Johnson, 1,524 for Scott, and 332 for Albright, Wake County: 8,697 for Scott, 5, 408 for Albright, 5,338 for John son. NEW EDITOR This column was started five years ago. Some times it has been rather fierce in its (.ttacks, but has not knowingly pnnted a falsehood. It has strived at all times not to take itself top seriously, but in any event always tc be readable, interesting, and maybe a little different front the usual run of Raleigh stuff. Several papers in the State dur ing the. campaign ran articles on the candidates for State office, usually beginning with Albright on down the alphabetical list. This column, figuring that the three principal contenders would be Al' bright, Johnson, and Scott, decided it would give out with material f.bout these three, but rather than to be like the other columns and papers, would begin with Scott . . . then Johnson . , . then Albright . There was no beating about the bush when this was done. Scott's article went out. And then for the first time in five years an attempt was made to throttle this column . . . to control it . . . or possibly to stop it. When the Johnson piece Went out, the Scott folks probably raised Ned, but no attempt was made to control the column. Albright's column movd into the papers without difficulty. But the articles . , , that fint one for Scott .' . . was the reason you missed seeing this column for at least one week . probably two weeks . . . and that's why the per son who has been .assisting with the column for five yeara now has complete charge of it . . and bears all responsibility for what appears in it. It should be point ed out , that at no time did any candidate for Governor or any of the assistants or managers in the various headquarters, attempt to control this column . . . and the Johnson folks in the county which tried to pressure the column, and did get a new editor, saw their man run third in that county, and that county paper no longer re ceives the column, ' ' ;? NO fiUCH THING It is vir tually impossible for any newspa perman to be Impartial.' Scott readers have said this corner was J r-. .mm mmmfmm for Johnson, and Johnson people have said it was for Scott, .while Albright followers thanked it for any nice things said for their man. And so it goes. Possibly, uncons ciously, partiality has been shown. Two weeks ago it was reported around Raleigh that Lynn Nisbet was for Scott. Last week it was reported he was for Johnson. The Charlotte News came out for John sen. However, it is almost impos sible to know how any paper stands on any candidate.

It's shameful, but it seems nothing can he done about these terrifif expenditures to woo voters. WHAT WILL ALBRIGHT DO? The $64 question now is: Will R. Mayne Albright swing to Johnson or to Scott? He is going to be subjected to all kinds of tempting offers during the next few days. This column's guess is that his for ces. ... a majority of them. . . . will swing to Scott. . . . with or without help from Albright. This will mean that the Johnson forces must dig deeply into the till for cold cash to combat this added Scott strength. Also, it is felt that the Johnson folks brought out John Armstrong against Thad Eurc, Secretary of State, and so Thad is, expected to work for Scott between now and the runoff.
