By Aycock Brown
Morehead City, Sept. 1. The Jef
ferson's lobby was packed with
evacuees that had left the beach on
Monday afternoon when it looked
like the hurricane might strike.
There was the tenseness in the air
which only a well publicized-in-advance
storm can bring about.
"This is the corniest hurricane 1
have ever -seen," remarked a
freckled-faced eight-year-oldcr. A
little blond curly-ahired boy hold
ing the leash that had a spaniel at
its other end paid no attention to
Ihe remark. He only tugged at the
leash and looked sleepy.
Bridge players in the lobby seem
ed to be more interested in cards
that hurricanes. Newspapermen,
newsreelmen, and photographers
were milling around in. the group.
They had been working hard to get
pictures that would fit into the si
tuation while the ccat was being
swept away later by the hurricane
tides and a big blow.
Up in room 48 the AP.had set up
a transmitter. A picture of an At
lantic Beach merchant named
Barefoot boarding up his windows
in anticipation of a mighty breeze
was beinig rolled off by wire to
Atlanta. There it would be retrans
mitted by wire to newspapers that
had the equipment to receive same.
The Bsrofoot photo would be in
New York and other metropolitan
newspapers by Tuesday morning
and the North Carolina dailies
would have it by airmail for their
Tuesday afternoon editions.
I was beginning to agree with
the freckled-face youngster. This
was a "corny hurricane." For
some reason the possibilities of a
big storm seemed very remote to
me. I have been in the thick of
some of the worst gales and hurri
canes that have occurred along the
North Carolina coast during the

like the one everyone in Morehead
City was waiting for on Monday
As matter of fact I had not ever
taken the hurricane seriously.
Brantley and I had left Manteo at
6 o'clock. Esther, Billy and'Stormy
Gale were Wone at the apartment
on Roanoke Island. We picked up
Jerry Anderson at The Carolinian
on Nags Head and then moved up
the beach towards Currituck
Sound. The ocean to our starboard
seemed peaceful and slick. It had
calmed down considerably since
the previous afternoon or that is
the way it appeared at 7 o'clock on
Monday morning as we headed
north to Elizabeth City where
Brantley was to visit for a day or
two and Jerry and myself were to
No storm signals were displayed
in the Pasquotank town. There
were no storm flags displayed in
Edenton. The muddy water flowing
beneath the Chowan Bridge as we
rolled across the wooden structure
towards Edenhouse Point and the
peanut plantations beyond seemed
to be undisturbed in a pre-hurri-cane
way. No one in Washington
or at Bell's Fork in Pitt County
mentioned a storm in the offing.
But when I pulled into New Bern
there was plenty of hurricane ex
citement. Just about everyone I
saw talked about the approaching
Lake Excavations Hear Completion
On Harvey Smith Properly, Beaufort
Nearing completion on Front
street extended, Beaufort, are ex
cavations for an artificial lake, part
of the landscaping for the new
home uc'ng built by Mr. and Mrs.
Harvey Smith. Mr. Smith is owner
and operator of the prosperous
Fish Meal company in west Beau
fort. Geo. Brooks, engineer, says that
the home will be by far the most
beautiful and lavish in that section.
Actually, the finished project will
resemble a small estate.
The house will be built of brick
and have a 196-foot front. The
property itself extends for 600 feet
along Taylor'i creek and from
Front street extension back to the
Ground is being removed from
the lake site by steam shovel and
the lake bottom will be covered
with fine white sand. Source of
water will be an artesian well. Pre
sent plans are to stock the minia
ture sea with fish and for above
water beauty there will be geese
and swans. . : ,
In the center of the lake, which
is 433 feet long and ilO feet wide,
will be an island with a . rustic
bridge constructed parallel to the
waterfront, connecting the island
to the "mainland." ; y ? ,
. Plans call for a guest house west
of the lake. . Along Taylor creek
Mr. Smith expects to construct his
own yacht basin.
No estimate has been quoted as
to cost or date of completion of

to the radio reports.
No one but a fool or n guy

liberately heading into the More
head City area, into the' teeth of
a hurricane, some of my New Bern
friends were saying. So, I continu
ed eastward and found upon my
arrival here that the hotels were
crowded with evacuees. The Al
Dcwcys at the Jefferson had looked
out for me though. They saved me
a room and the hotel's main office
in which to work. On the spur of
the moment it looked like I would
be using the office more than the
bed on Monday night. Telephone
calls going to the westward were
delayed for two a:id ihree hours.
The girls at the telephone were
being overworked with what every
one was trying to identify as
After a while I was able to fol
low through on the calls that had
come in for me before arrival. I
could not reach Manteo over the
commercial lines so that is where I
enlisted the aid of Cant. Meekins at
the Coast Guard station. Fort Ma

helped me get mv mesrtages
through to Manteo. You see, by this
time, after having made photo
graphs of the local signal tower
with its two black centered red
flags waving in the light breeze, I
had started thinking about Esther
and the two small children in Man

I called Mrs. Purser at The Caro
linian and asked her to sort of look
out for Esther and the children
asking them to go to the hotel.
There they would be among friends
and beneath the roof of what has
impressed me as being the most
substantial building on the Dare
Coast. Then I called Esther to as
sure her that everything would be
all right, that they could ride out

Plan to Encourage
The Morehead City Junior Cham
ber of Commerce, meeting Monday
night at the Fort Macon hotel, de
cided to encourage the adoption
and development of high school
football in Carteret county in gen

cular and planned to bring the
matter before school officials.
Believing that there is a place
for high school football in the
county and that its adoption would
be beneficial to students, a com
mittee was appointed, under the
chairmanship of Bill Flowers, to
discuss the idea with school author
ities. The Jaycees were of the opinion
that hich school football in More
head City would receive all the
financial support needed. They
planned to contact Claud Wheat ly,
president of the Beaufort Junior
Chamber of Commerce,' in order to
instigate similar activity in Beau
fort. While on the subject of football,
the possibility of a touch football
league, built along the lines of the
recently-formed Carteret Softball
league, was discussed. Tackling, the
I Jaycees unanimously agreed, would

knows more about money than any
other person in Carteret county
and he's not a banker or a busi
nessman. He's merely interested
in coins, big ones, little ones, old
and new ones.
He started this unique hobby
when he was 12, just two years
ago. Some old coins and bills were
given to him and that was the
beginning. Soon he vtps sending
away for books on coins and now
has from 15 to 20 different sources
for reference which are used to
identify and classify his collection.
When he needs a certain type of
coin to complete a series he orders
this also if it's available. But as
in any hobby, the rare pieces are
the valuable ones and these can't
be had merely by ordering.
He has now Jefferson nickels of
every year since 1938, when they
were first minted, with the mint

Denver and P for Philadelphia. He
needs about eight more of these to
complete the collection completion.
