Report on 1957,
Plans for 1958
J. A. DuBois, manager of the
Morehead City chamber of com
merce, has sent out a report on
chamber activities during 1957, and
plans proposed for 1958.
The report covers advertising, in
dustry, transportation, the port,
civic affairs and membership.
For 1958, the chamber hopes to
have 10.000 brochures published by
February; under industry, a pic
torial industrial survey is recom
mended for publication; a ferry is
termed essential to close the all
seashore highway link from Ocra
coke to Carteret County in 1P58.
A two-day Coastal Festival is
recommended, as well as a Na
tional Guard armory, landscaping
of a municipal park and more
funds for mosquito control.
Chamber membership in 1957
was 174. Tftal amount collected
through membership dues was $8,
606.95. The budget set up was $13,
300. Expenses, however, during
1957 were held to $8,524.95, leaving
a balance at the end of the year
An increase in membership, or
an increase in the amount of 1958
dues from present members, is
needed to meet the 1958 budget,
Mr. DuBois points out.
1958 officers are Bud Dixon, pres
ident; Walter Morris, vice-presi
dent; J. R. Sanders, treasurer.

Swansboro Pirates, Newport
Hawks to Continue Rivalry
In Game Tonight
The highflying Smyrna girls
team, defending county champions
and winners of seven straight
games, is favored to make it eight
in a row tonight. They will play
the Beaufort lassies in the first
game of * doubleheader at Beau
Beaufort Coach Hugh Cordon
says that he plans to continue his
deliberate style of play. "I have
instructed my forwards to hold on
to that ball until they have a good
shot at the basket." he declares.
To Call Shots
"With my short guards and
Smyrna's tall forwards, they are
sure to score nearly every time
they get the ball. We will have to
do the same thing if we hope to
win. That means we will work the
hall until we get an open shot at
the basket or a free throw."
In three games this year the
Beaufort girls have scored 88 points
for an average of 29 points per
game. Their opponents have scored
109 for an average of 36 points per
game. This doesn't tell the whole
In the one game when the Beau
fort lassies opened up and tried to
match their opponents, basket for
basket, they got beat by 17 points.
Swansboro handed them a 57-40
Had Chance to Win
In the two games they tried to
control the ball they lost by scores
of 28-25 and 24 23. "We had a
chance to win either one of those
games," the coach points out,
"while we didn't have a ghost of
a chance in the Swansboro game."
Smyrna Coach H. T. Sanders
may counter with a possession-type
ball game or he may count on his
tall forwards scoring every time
they get the ball as Coach Gordon
It may be a slow ball game, but
a close score and a hard fight for
the victory is just as exciting as a
race horse game where fans get
rubber necks from watching the
points mount up.

"THE SHOWPLACE OF
Tomorrow night's game between
the visiting Newport Hawks and
the Swansboro Pirates should rate
as one of the top games of the
year for both teams.
It will mark the continuation of
a red-hot rivalry that reached its
peak in the district play-offs last
winter. The Hawks hud won two
straight over the Pirates during
the regular season, only to have the
tables turned in the play-off tour- ]
nament at Kenansville.
The Pirates have looked impres-1
sive in their early games, par-;
ticularly in the second half of their
game at Morehead City. They have
a well-rounded attack with every
man on the first team a deadly j
Good Team Average
I The Hawks can counter with
' some pretty good sharp-shooters
! too. As a team they have averaged
! G9 points a game. Johnny Mason,
| Hawk forward, is third leading
scorer in the county. He has an
j average of 19 points a game and
is a constant threat to get hot and
j score 30 or more.
Center Larry Wallace and guard
Reuben Lilly are averaging over
13 points a game each and can be
counted on to make things tough j
on the opposition.
Says Coach Bob King, ' Wallace ;
will nearly always get his 10 or 15 I
points. On the nights when Lilly
and Mason are hitting, it will
really take a good team to hold
us down." He hopes these boys
will be 'right' tomorrow night.
| The other two starters, Alton
I Hardison and Larry Kirk, are good
steady pefrormers who are top
competitors. "They get in there
and fight for the hall, and that is
what you have to do to win," says
Girls coach Tom Dickinson says
that much of the success of his
team will depend on the recovery
of forward Betty Jo Whitaker. She
ts the only starting forward held
over from last year's team, but
has been out all year with a bad
She may be able to see action
tonight Coach Dickinson has been
depending on freshmen and sopho
mores but hrs still run up a rec
ord of four victories against one
lass. He figures that the llawkettes
are several points stronger when
Whitaker is in the lineup
Eagles to Play
The Morehead City Eagles will
meet their first A A competition
tonight w hen they invade Wallace I
The Eagles have compiled a rec
ord of three wins and two losses |
against some rugged Class A com
Coach Cannon Talbert says he
plans to stick with his same start
ing line-up with Harden Kure and
I John Phillips at forwards. Llewel
lyn Phillips at center and Walter
Morris and Jimmy Swann at
Three of the Eagle starters will
go into the game with scoring aver
ages of better than 10 points a
game. The big gun in the Eagle
attack is Llewellyn Phillips, who
is averaging 22.4 points per game.
His brother, John, is hitting at an
II point per game clip.
Sandwiched between the two
brothers is Harden Eure, who is
scoring at an 11.8 average. He is
recognized as one of the best re
bounders on the team.
The starting line up for the girls
will probably have Anna Fayc
Willis, Faye Jones and Jenny Lou
Smithwick at forwards and Jessie
White, Sally Morris. Patsy Robin
son or Frances Gaskins.
Top Scorers Will Meet
In Beaufort-Smyrna Game
Two of the top scorers in the
county will meet tonight when the
Smyrna Blue Devils invade Beau
fort. Glenn Willis, who has been
the only Devil star in a poor sea
son, will find himself pitted against
Beaufort's ace scorer, Butch Has
Willis has been scoring at a 14
point average, while Hassell has
been hitting an ayerage of 18 8
points per game. Neither team has
another man who averages 10
points a game.
Beaufort fans are quick to point
out why individual averages are
rather low. They say that Coach
T. II. McQuaid has so many good
players he tries to use all of them.
There is no doubt that the Sea
dogs are loaded this year and will
give everyone plenty of trouble.
Their only loss this season has
been to New Bern, an A A school.
After they earned a nine point
victory over the defending cham
pion Newport Hawks, many fans
predict that they have the county
title wrapped up.
(Morehcad City, an AA school
now, is not eligible for the county
title since it would not be able to
play in play-off competition. The
Eagles will play in the county
tournament and can be declared
Freshmen dominate the Blue
Devil team, which shows lots of
promise for next year. Lack of ex
perience hurta the Devils but they
play with all the spirit characteris
tic of young teams.
