Racing Association Prepares Dog Track
For Schooling Operations June 25-29
Finishing touches are being put
on the $200,000 dog race track
west of Morehead City and by Fri
day night everything will be in
readiness for the ftmr nights f
. schooling preceding the grand
opening next Wednesday, June 30,
Paul Cleland, manager, reported
For the past two weeks owners
have been arriving with their dogs
which are being housed in kennels
built by Vernon Guthrie, More
head City, on route 24 near the
Earle Webb property.
The four nights of schooling will
accustom dogs to the track and
show the public how races are con
, ducted. Pari-mutuel windows will
not open until June 30 and from
that night throughout the .racing
season no one under 21 years of
age will be admitted.
Bets on the dogs may be placed
at 21 windows located beneath the
3,000 capacity grandstand and
cashiers at 15 windows will pay
,. off to the holders of straight (win
ner), place (second dog), and
show (third dog) tickets.
Secretary Selects Runners
Dogs which will race each night
. are selected by the racing secre
tary, Paul Hartwell, "one of the
best racing secretaries in the
country," Mr. Cleland says. Own
ers have nothing to say about
which race their dog or dogs
should run. Selections are made
by the secretary so that dogs will
compete against- other animals in
their own weight and speed class.
Because it is not the practice
at dog tracks to house the racers
on the premises as horses are, the
dogs are brought to the track in
trailers at 6 o'clock the night they
are to race.
In the paddock they are checked
by a veterinarian and weighed on
large scales in view of the public.
Once the dog enters the paddock,
. his owners do not handle him a
gain until after he races.
The racing weight of the dog.
perhaps 60 pounds, is posted o'n a
board at the paddock. The dog is
weighed again immediately before
he goes on the track, and if the
weight varies from the first weigh
ing by a pound and a half or more
the dog is scratched and doesn't
, race that night.
. After the dogs are weighed in.
they are taken to a plot by the
paddock known as the jinny pit
and put in a box with their num
ber, correlated with the race in

The Carteret Coast: Its Needs
As an Ideal Summer Resort
By Robert Lowe, Secretary
Morehead City Chamber
The 'annual income from North
Carolina's out-of-state visitors is
reliably estimated at between $150,
000,000 and $175,000,000.
This is larger than the return
from the state's cotton crop. This
gross exceeds that of furniture
making, placing this phase of our
economy well up in the list of the
three big money-making enter
prises of North Carolina.
Morehead City is one of the
eight or ten cities on the coast
which share in this bonanza.
This -represents entirely "new
money." By new money is meant
money that is not earned or ac
quired hare in this state through
the operation of any other business
activity, and would normally not
accrue to us unless our tourists
friends brought it here and spent
K with us. This is money we would
be without should we not attract
vacationers to our midst, as in no
other way could it be made a part
of our earnings.
Our climate and our geographi
cal location have caused us to
benefit as though an industrialist
had built and deeded to us a plant
worth hundreds of millions of dol
lars. Our resort lacks sufficient re
creational facilities to offer the
tourist and the North Carolina re
sident who comes to the Carteret
shore a properly balanced menu.
The only golf course convenient to
a beach in North Carolina is in
Wilmington. If there is a riding
horse for rent up and down the
coast it is a carefully guarded sec
ret. Guests accustomed to "resort
facilities" are continually surpris
ed to find a dearth of badminton
courts, tennis courts, shuffle
boards, docking facilities and other
items too numerous to mention.
We can't just peddle the ocean.
Other resorts have the ocean and
all this, too. And often for the
We have developed wonderfully
in the past few years. Far beyond
reasonable dreams or expectation
of pre-war days. But to keep this
forward motion going forward we
must work together to accomplish
the tilings that are needed.
One thing about the travel bu
siness well worth noting is its in
herent stability and the undeni
able opportunity that it presents.
So long as Florida and the re
sorts south of us thrive, nad we
hope they will continue to do so,
we lie ITke a great trap across the
path of millions of people. This
is business which is qurs and path
of milions of people. This is bu
siness which is ours and ours alone
if we will go after it and handle
North Carolina's location makes
it an attractive goal for over half
the population of America. The va
cation market is spreading rapidly,
both as to coverage of employees
and also in extended time off, par
ticularly in the middle income
field the skilled worker and the
white collar class. Lack of $50-per
day-places in our area protects us
against deflation to a large extent.
Our rate range can well be en
larged to encompass the $25 to $75
per week American, that will be
within the reach of even flatten
ed pockets books.
The extent of expansion of our
travel industry is dependent on in
telligent development and opera
tion of accommodations. And ag
gressive and unrelenting promo
tion. Promotion meaning a pro
gram to keep prospective patrons
infermed about the pleasures of
visiting the Carteret Coast. There
is no practical limit to the use of,
this resource. Climate can be used
over and over again. A day's fish
ing or a week on the beach is just
as welcome one time as another.
We believe that intelligent and sin
cere effort can make Morehead
City, Beaufort, Atlantic Beach and
the whole Central Carolina Coast
a more, substantial asset to our
people and our state. ,

A spot check, by telephone, of
Ihe business firms in Morehead
City indicated that by far the ma
jority will declare a holiday Mon
day, Julv-5. Some time ago the
merchants agreed on several days
throughout the year that were to
be celebrated by closing the doors
of businesses. The Fourth of July
was one. This year, since the
Fourth fals on Sunday there has
been r lack of understanding as to
what would be done about it.
Generally speaking, the grocery
stores will remain open for busi
ness as will drug stores, filling,
stations and others Catering to the
crowd of visi . rs expected over the
week-end. Other retail establish
ments, with a very few exceptions,
indicated that they will be closed
for a long week-end.
Morehead City Garment com
pany has declared the week a vaca
tion period as is their custom twice
annually. One week near Christ
mas and another during the sum
mer season are set Aside for a .
complete shutdown at the shirt fac

doing business as usual due to. the
particularly heavy load of ' work
that they are handling at present.
