'',., . : '
Escipe for an A-l Collision
' Five railroad crossings between the west end of Morehead
City drawbridge and 4th street in Morehead City are, undoubted
.. ly and of necessity, there to stay.
Tracks once laid cannot readily be moved the cars that roll
".. over them can, however, and from the motorist's point of view
'.. there is no reason why freight trains must be parked in the two
blocks from 4th street to 6th, barricading the 8th street crossing.
In the late afternoon and early evening before darkness, a
fairly alert motorist notices the train sitting stolidly in his path
way, but at night it's a different story. Going north on 5th
' street from Evans with car lights on low beam, the freight train,
now black as night itself, is not seen until the motorist is just
about upon it. His mind is intent on looking for cars approach
ing from the west on Arendell street.
If trains must be parked across city streets, the least rail
roaders could do is hang red lanterns on- each side. But, no
doubt railroad men are gamblers at heart and simply take chances
' on cars hitting their rolling stock.
Wednesday evening the freight train was not only blocking
Sth street, the last freight car at 4th street was flush with tho
west side of highway 70. A car going east could not see a car
coming south and a car headed south could not see a vehicle go
All this sounds complicated, but it's darned simple to a mo
torist caught in tho situation. He just hopes that his insurance
is paid up to date and slowly pushes the nose of his car out, if
nothing hits It, he's lucky then he gets to the point where ho
can see. If a car is coming at him from behind the freight car
obstruction he, steps on the gas like mad and hopes to beat it
or ei.sehe slams on the brakes and waits.
Driving in Morehead City? It's not so bad if freight cars
stay off the streets.
The Fourlh ol July . . .
As the days of World War II fade farther into the past, the
Fourth of July returns to what it was before Dad had to keep an
eye on his gas ration and Mom had to dream up sandwiches that
didn't knock a hole in her red stamp supply.
We remember that we're lucky to live in the USA but it's a
remembrance submerged by plans for having a good time, and
this year, a long vacation weekend. Somber observances are, for
the most part, reserved for Memorial Day. The Fourth means
gay celebration from coast to coast, from the Canadian line to
the Mexican border.
Usual warnings to motorists, swimmers, and other holiday
: observers have been made. It would be UNusual if they heeded
them. Deafh should take a holiday, too.
For many reasons we should be thankful that we are a na
tion with but one birthday rather than one with numerous birth
dates observed by different political factions: One 'hundred sev
. enty-two years Is a short time, as lives of nations go, yet ". . . may
. i the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation , . ." help
HI maintain it ever as the fair land it is.

HUMBLE The tumult and the
shouting dies; the Captains and
the Kings depart: Still stands
Thine ancient sacrifice, an humble
and a contrite heart.
Last Saturday night just before
W. Kerr Scott left the ballroom
of the Carolina Hotel to return to
his country home in (lit Back
Creek section of Alamance County,
one Charlie Johnson of Asheboro,
nc kin to the d?feated candidate,
asked him for his autograph and
some comment. Scott, rather in
articulate at the moment, did not
know what to say o:i tne piece of
paper wiiich Johnson had shoved
at him. He was advised to pen
simply the word.;, "I won".
"No, let : not iav that, replied
Scott. With that. nlaced t' e
heet oi paper on one knee and
scribbled: "We won. W. Kerr
He was humble in victory.
IN 1032 AND 19H6There was
no absentee ballot in th? Primary.
That's virtually the wholet story.
This column agrees with tkusnd'
and thousands of pood Democrats
throughout the State who fnmly
believe that Dick Fountain really
wn in W,2 and Dr. Raloii Mc
Donald re;,l!y won in 113(1 . . .
but Kiev lost.
.1. M. Iiioughton bernim Gov
ernor in 13t0, and the 194! Legis
lature gave the hatchet to the
absentee ballot in the 1'rima-y.
Willie I.ee i.ulupkin of Franklin
County introduced the bill. Fivnk
lin last Saturday pave Fcott 3.123
and Johnson 094. T.um k :n w is
in the Scot I headquarter on Mil
urday nitrht. . . . with ai.out 1500
others . some of whi.in had
been Johns ;n supporters until the
victor's lead liit 15.000 vc'.
NOTES - Believe ;t ror not
one of the happiest men over
Scott's victory is none omor than
your Governor, R. Gretfg Cherry,
whose county went for tin Ala
mance gentleman. . . . There was
some suggestion to the effect that
Cherry might come out for John
son during the campaign for the
second Primary . . . But you fi
gure that one out. . . .
Capus Waynick was the princi
pal strategist in the Scott camp.
He is as shrewd as they comi? . . .
liberal and thoroughly honest . . .
Robert W. Redwine, sharp adver
tising man. made t. huge contri
bution to the Scott victory in the
neat wording of those advertise
ments you read ... He was slso
a Broughton man. . . . Incidental
ly, one of the first congratulatory
calls to W. Kerr Scott was from
J. M. Broughton. . . . You are
likely to see a brand new State
Highway Commission take over
next year, since all of the present
members except Jordan Were for
Charles M. Johnson . . . It is esti
mated that the losers spent in the
neighborhood df $150,000 in the
second Primary . . . and about the
same amount irMhe first. ... Ap
proximately $25,000 was spent in
Forsyth County alone, it is said
. . . and this county went for
Johnson by only 48 votes . . .
wert scared for Scott. They had
been , beaten by the machine so
many times that they could not
imagine his winning. Many men
had the opportunity to manage the
Scott campaign, but they were
afraid. Scott wasn't. Like the Little
Red Hen, he said, "Okay, then I
will plant the wheat seed." And
he did. Jim Caldwell of Concord
joined up. The second break was
when Capus Wavnick stepped in.
Then Bob Redwine. The News and
Observer was always sympathetic
to Scott. .
The first thin? !'ou knew the
campaign wps rolling . . . and how
it rolled. Money was needed . . .
money with no strings attached.
It came . . . from the same type
of people who had no money to
help Fountain in 1932 and Mc
Donald in 1936. Scott proved him
self to be a "rent campaigner. The
people liked his sincerity, the
honesty in his face and manner.
He is honest, "fair, and fine . . .
and an humble person. The Scott's
are fine people, all of them. Kerr
Scott will make a great Governor.
Poland Estimates Its Coal '
WARSAW, Poland (AP)
Polish experts say this nation's
coal resources are estimated at
from 75,000,000,000 JLo 80,000,000,
000 tons. Ten percent of the de
posits are in the. Western terri
tories the lands Poland absorb
ed from Eastern Germany.
A nnA!nt AMMMla.llMI r 9 mt.jflrf
J ayCVMI WIIUHHUVII llll.l.ll.
experts estimated Poland's hard
coal resources at 10,500,000,000
tons. The commission said this in-1
eludes only definitely ascertained
deposits in mining claims to a
depth of about 3,300 feet. (
WARSAW, Poland (AP) -It's
easy to get a divorce in Poland
if man and wife agree that's what
tltey want. Poland's divorce law
sjvs n decree mav be granted to
anyone after three years of mar
ried life without any cause Doing
assigned if both parties agree to it.
1! man and wile do not agree, inen
as many as 11 reasons for dissolv
ing a marriage are provided.
BARNES A young man to rec
kon with In future political con
tests in this State is John I. Barnes
of Clayton, Albright manager in
the first go-around. He carried
about 85 per cent of the Albright
vote to Scott, it Is thought, and all
the counties which went for R.
Mayne in the first were for Scott
in the sectind. Men and women like
John Barnes and his cute and at
tractive wife will keep America
free and in the hands of the peo
ple. This also goes for Ferd Davis,
young newspaper editor of Zebulon
In Wake County, whose editorial
on the "One Talent Candidate" you
have probably read by this time.
He was for Scott from the begin
ning . . . flew for him, spoke for
him, and wrote for him. His moth
er, Mrs. Theo B. Davis, kept .the
children last Saturday night so
the young folks could join in the
Scott victory celebration. She
writes, too ... and well . . . read
able, down-to-earth stories of
SCOTT In one of the shortest
campaigns on record anywhere,
Kerr Scott was nominated for Gov
ernor. ; In January,- Charles M.
Johnson virtually- had the thing
tewed up. Then the lightning
struck. Kerr Scott announced he
would not run for re-election. At
that time he had no idea of run
ning for Governor, contrary to
what yon might, have heard, but
the Johnson forces saw him as a
possible candidate even as he made
plans to retire from public life. He
had told his wife in 1944 that he
would not run for Commissioner
of Agriculture again.
However1, there was dissatisfac
tion with Johnson and Scott was
urged to ran for Governor. . . . by
letter, by wire, and by. hardly-legi
ble, pencjl-written post cards from
throughout North Carolina; There
were conferences, meetings, one of
which was held in the Governor's
mansion, and Scott announced.
Then the fur began to fly. The
first good break was when Charlie
Parker, probably the best newspa
perman in the State, consented to
handle the publicity. But the folks
