He's Left Us a Better World
Carteret county has lost one of Its best friends.
Not only did Colonel Dickinson bring us honor by permitting
us to bask in the brilliant light of his success, he didn't forget us.
On his regular visits to Beaufort there was a handclasp and
sincere greeting for all his friends, while or black. We were
proud of him, even a little in awe of him, and always pleased when
we saw him or heard on Front Street, "Colonel Dickinson's here!"
With the material sources at his disposal he built those
things which feed the eternal in man education, development
of the mind, religion, cultivation of the spiritual. Even his major
enterprise, manufacture of surgical instruments, was the means
of bringing health and life to the wounded and infirm.
Of the countless billions who have dwelled on Earth it can
be said of only a comparative few, "The world is better for his
having lived." '
Colonel Dickinson can be numbered among those.
flaking Ball Parks Safer
Baseball fans who attend games at the local parks won't have
to worry about those dangerous foul balls much longer.
Last week the screen at Wade Brothers park, which had been
pretty well torn up and of little use in the way of protection,
was replaced by some brand new chicken wire. Where fans pre-,
viously had . to duck for fear of getting a black eye, they could
continue enjoying the game with the knowledge that the stands
were a safe place to stay.
The screen at Beaufort ball park, repaired some time ago, has
proved a great aid to safety on that field, but work is still under
way to correct a hazardous condition In the stands. While the
screen is a great help, it does not protect the fans in the top two
or three rows nor does it shield any of the onlookers from high
foul balls because there is no roof.
The ways and means committee of the Parent-Teachers asso
ciation, which has been responsible for many recent improvements
at the ball field, says that a roof will be added to the stands as
soon as possible, affording complete protection to occupants. Work
has been held up thus far because of lack of materials.
With the addition of all these new safety guards, local ball
fields will be what they ought to be a place where men can bring
their wives and kids can bring their pals for a few hours of care
free relaxation and enjoyment without any anxiety for personal
Commissioners at Bat (or Fort
List week in convention at Atlantic Beach the North Carolina
State Association of County Commissioners- adopted a resolution
advocating the full scale restoration and development of Fort
Macon State park at Beaufort inlet.
This action was taken at the request of the board of directors
of the Morehead City Chamber of Cornmerc, The Chamber
received the whole-hearted csoofkrratidft of John C. Skinner of
Warren county who is secretary and trjasfrer of the County Com
Resolutions adopted by this body will be drafted Into bills by
their legislative committee and presented to the next session of the
North Carolina General assembly for action.'
We have long realised the potential value of old Fort Macon
as an historic landmark of great interest to vacationers and the
use of local citizens and visitors alike. And realized as well the
startling lack of appropriate action to accomplish this.
It la hoped that this program, when activated, will include
adequate roadside Information leading the wayfarer to the siU of
this historic key to bur coastal defences and also provide for the
comfort and pleasures of these who find their way there.
In May there were over 2,000 registered visitors atVort Macon
and the figures for June will greatly exceed this number.

THAT OLD BLACK MAGIC
If the pattern which was set in
1932, and which was folowed in
1936 and 1944, and to some ex
tent in 1940, could hold this time,
Johnson would be your next Gov
ernor. But indications are that
it just is not holding. It's rip
ping at the seams. It is diinte
grating, falling apart. All the old
tricks are being used, but they
don't seem to be working. That
old black magic has lost its power.

NOT PASQUOTANK Former
Governor J. C. B. Ehringhaus went
on the radio last week in behalf
of Charles M. Johnson. It was a
wonderful courthouse speech.
Ehrlnghaus, a charming gentle
man, pulled out all the stops. But

Carolina, which nurtured him in
his youth and sent him to Raleigh
In 1932, where he has since re
mained, say this section is still for
Kerr Scott, "Ehringhaus or no

AYCOCK INFLUENCE The
great Charles B. Aycock, known
as the father of education in North
Carolina, has been dead nearly 40
years. However, last week found
his son-in-law and his grandson
speaking for Kerr Scott. Major L.
P. McLendon of Greensboro,
chairman at the recent State Demo
cratic Convention, spoke for Scott
at a rally In Roxboro. Charles Poe,
son of Dr. Clarence Poe, editor oi
the, Progressive Farmer, and Ay
cock's grandson went on the radio
for Kerr Scott.

stronger Seott supporter in North
Carolina than Clarence Poe. He
isn't saying much about It public

of the opinion that a new day is
now dawning for North Carolina.

that he will not. Also, Secretary!

OUT ON A LINE This is a
big State and there are no polls
operating to give you a look into

mistake on predictions on a vote.

certain block of votes, etc. It's
bad to get out on a limb, but It
makes for mighty interesting read

above prediction regarding a vic

been circulating strong letters for
Kerr Scott, and there are nearly
as many Baptists as English spar

45 Cars Per Month Go

WASHINGTON The nation's
40,000 new car dealers have an
average quota of only 45 automo
biles for the first six months of
this year, a bulletin of the Nation
al Automobiles Dealers association
said today. This was based on an
estimated production of substan
tially 1,800,000 cars.
"Passenger car production so
far this ."ear has been on about
the same level as during the seven
years preceding Pearl Harbor," the
statement pointed out. "There
were automobiles for all who want
ted them then, but today there are
orders for 6,000,000 cars on deal

major part of contemplated,, pro

"Motor vehicle owners 6f thp

Mr. Garner seeded a mixture of

Sonny Long hns an acre of Bla
