Mrs. Jones was given a lovely Corsage of carnations and china in her pattern by the hostess. some illegal gambling operations within the limits of North Caro lina, (and one operation that is legal namely, Carolina Racing Association's pari-mutuel operated dog track at Moreherd City) that our great outstanding and moral state has been missing the boat on a revenue that it could other wise be getting. By otherwise, I mean if those who are going to have slot machines, lotteries pwnchbo-.'rds. etcetera, are going to continue operating. And they will never fear, oven if thcr; arc occasional intermissions. The references to illegal gamb ling on the Carteret Coast by Jack Riley in tho News and Observer recently which was the other side of a most excellently written story cbout the legalized pari-mutuel operated dog track at Morehoad City, was not startling news to anyone who has visited any resort, anywhere in North Carolina, or I mit'ht modify this statement by saying, any coastal resort. The last time I was in the mountains uns when all s'rangers wore con sidered as revenue officers until they could prove they wore not. So f won't speak for the mountain resorts. ' I will speak for just about every place I stop to buy black coffee. coca-colas, gasoline, French fried pig skins and Peter Paul Mounds. Most of tho places have some sort Willis-Blalock Vows To Be Solemnized Announcement has been made of the forthcoming marriage of Miss Lorna Doone Blalock. (laugh ter of Mr. Bunn 15. Blalock of Durham, to Mr. Jerry James Wil lis, son of Mr. and Mr. James Michael Willis, of Morehoad City. The ceremony will take place in the First Methodist church of Morehead City, on Sunday, Sep tember 26, at five o'clock in the afternoon. No invitations are being sent but all friends are cordially invit ed to attend. of contraption along the 100-mile coastal beat I cover, that a person can take a chance on. Take Nags Head for instance On the day that Riley story uras published (actually It Was 8 o' clock the next morning), I stopped; at a restaurant on the beach to get a cup of coffee, feather ana and a party of friends ihad been out night -clubbing -and what needed at the moment to fceep me awake at the -wheel n our way' home was benzedrine or black cof4 fee. I was taking the latter and. listening to the juke box render' t. Louis Blues on a pipe organ when some person who knew me remarked: "How do they get by with It down in Carteret County? You go there every week and ought to be in the know," he said. "What do you mead?" I asked sleepily. "All that stuff about slot ma-, chines and gambling things, I read about in the paper today," he said. As he talked, this person reach ed across the counter towards the cashier to pay his check. As he did so, he almost knocked s fancy looking punch board off the count erone of these punchboards that costs a quarter to play Bnd pays off up to $25.00 in cash if you are lucky enough to hit the right num ber. "I guess that's your answer," I replied, as he replaced the pundh board to its nook beside a jar of Nabs. Carteret County is not the only wicked place, if that is what some are calling a resort area which gets a splash of publicity as the result of things illegal to gamble on or with, that an alert feature writer sees with his own eyes with out making a confidential investi gation. Some of the restaurants I visit along the North Carolina coast have so many punchboards on dis play that it becomes extremely dif ficult at times to maneuver a ham sandwich and cup of coffee from the same counter with them. And that, brother, is not in Car teret County. That's why 1 say, if Florida is getting those many millions out of her big time gambling enter prises, why doesn't North Carolina start cashing in on the punch boards and other devices illegal which flourish everywhere, so it seems to me, with very few inter missions. Legalized 'operation of gambling devices which are going to be operated anyway, could pro vide some important money for improving roads, insane asylums, parks, bridges and many other things in North Carolina. 0TT7AY v Rev.
