Johnny Lynch, pitcher for Beaufort in the Junior Tidewater
League, fashioned a neat one-hitter in league play against Marshall
berg Wednesday afternoon at Beaufort ball park and led his team
to a 2-1 victory over 'the Marshallberg nine.
Young Lynch, in performing this
deal, struck but 10' batsmen. His
battery mate was B. A. O'Neal.
( Opposing Lynch on the mound
for Marshallberg was Billy Neal,
while Donnie Lee handled the
catching chores. Neal gave up
seven hits and struck out four.
Leading the Beaufort offense
was Clyde Owens, who collected
two hits in three official times up
Regulation time for Junior Tide-
, .tyater League games is seven in
nings, at which time Beaufort and
Marshallberg had the count knot
tod at M. Going into extra in
nings, however, Neal walked three
Beaufort batters in the last half of
the eighth to load the sacks. This
gave Donnie Deedley the chance
to become a hero, which he
promptly did by singling in the
! This was the fifth successive vic
tory for Beaufort, giving them a
won 6, lost 2 record for the season.
' tfhe win pushed the team into a
first place tie with Davis which

Beaufort's distinction in being
the first place on the eastern sea
board where agar was produced
hasn't meant much in dollars and
cents to date. Jinxed by the lack
of an off-season product and the
scarcity of raw material, agar pro
duction up Taylor Creek way has
been scanty and spasmodic, even
though the product was good.
An industry spawned by the war
created need for domestic seaweed
jells, it seems likely to continue by
virtijf of the fact that much of the
material manufactured in the
State is superior in some ways to
that of the Japanese.
Take, for instance, the hypnea
jell worked on at Pivers Island
and patented by Duke university;
it can be made to jell at any re
quired temperature and the 'heavi
ness' of the jell can be regulated
with a high degree of accuracy
which is a boon to manufacturers
and something that cannot be done
with ar other extract of this na
Thus, demand for the locally
produced commodity is good and
far exceeds what the plant has
been able to manufacture. On
March 4, the Lennoxville plant
(which has been variously known
as Van Sant, Inc., Beaufort Chemi
cal Company, and. latterly, as
Sperti, Inc.) reopened under the
direction of Manager Harold
Once again the weed was started
up the escalators on its way to the
cookers, the stickv mess resulting
was sent to the filter press to be
clarified. From there it emerged
clean and clear, ready for freezing.
Into the ice can it went and over
to the (50-ton refrigeration plant.
The agar ice was crushed and con
veyed to tanks, where it was melt
ed in a large lumc of water. Af
ter melting, the agar flakes were
taken out, dried, and ground.
Watching over each stage were Mr.
Leahy and Chief Chemist Kow
alewski. who hovered over the
tanks and tubes taking samples,
making tests and hoping for the
It's nice to be able to report that
at tli iK poi.it agar is being turned
out in commercial quantities. Op
erating on a full-time basis the
plant, which now has 18 employees,
can turn out 300 pounds a day.
So liltle is known about seaweed
products that it has been suggested
a time be set when visitors may
go through the plant. In the past,
when agar was a critical war ma
terial, it was, for some reason, con
sidered necessary to adopt a very
hush-hush attitude about Ihe whole
thing. Plants from Florida to
California built fences, hired
guards, and excluded visitors.
There is, now, no reason for se
crecy. There are, however, drawbacks
to having visitors at an agar plant.
It definitely is not a high hecls-and-chiffon-dress
sort of process.
Floors are frequently awash, the
stuff sputters and smells (but not
pardon us, Messrs. Potter, Mor
ris, et al anywhere near as much,
or as bad, as menhaden) and the
new management is understand
ably concentrating on production
per sc. It would be a fhie thing,
though, to have a visitors' day, or
hours, ta) promote interest in, and
understanding of, , an industry
which may some day mean increas
ed income for fishermen and a way
of combating lower prices and less
demand for fish, or making up for
times when there just aren't
enough fish for large catches.
Several large electrical concerns,
at least one nationally-known phar
maceutical house, and numerous
bakeries are NOW buying Beau

fort agar. Versatile in the ex
treme, agar is besl known as a
medium for bacteriologcal cul
tures. Little is generally heard
of its countless other uses that of
stiffening canned salmon, provid
ing a jelly for packing meat pro
ducts, acting as a lubricant for the
stretching of tungsten wires (the
tiny filamentous kind like that you
see in light bulbs), of giving body
to icings, candles, puddings, hair
