Chamber Issues 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 of $82. 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. ftsfl rjw Raa rj ifo V7 V ro* DCFCNOAftte ?CAVtCt HAVC YOUR AAKSCAimOMt FIU.CO RT CARTERET DRUGSTORE OAR.rr,Riv' drug srem ? Tomorrow is Blue Crutch Day in the 1958 March of Dimes. In Beaufort, Morehead City and Newport blue plastic crutch pins will be given to each person who contributes to the March of Dimes. March of Dimes volunteer work-1 ers on Front Street. Beaufort, will be Virginia Lewis and Sara Perry, | members of the Future Home makers of America chapter at Beaufort School. Bill Wade, Morehead City, will assist with the March of Dimes Blue Crutch day in Morehead. and High school students will solicit ! contributions in Newport. The schools will assist in the j campaign at times most conven ient to them throughout the month. The campaign in the Beaufort School will begin Monday and con tinue through Friday, Jan. 10. In each school, the classroom which collects the most money will re ceive a $5 cash prize. Children will take their contri butions to school and place them in a coin collector in the class room. Coin collectors will be de livered to the schools during the next few days. Mrs. John Johnson, March of Dimes chairman, requests that principals plan now the dates they will conduct the campaign. In addition to collecting funds, the March of Dimes campaign leaders also emphasize this year the importance of getting polio shots. If a polio shot prevents a person from being stricken with polio, that person has saved the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis several thousand dollars. Mrs. Johnson points out that treatment and rehabilitation of a polio patient costs at least that much. Persons wishing to contribute to the March of Dimes by check may mail their contribution to Mrs. John Johnson. Beaufort, or to Mrs. Clem Johnson, Morehead City. Alarm System Breaks A broken line in the Morehead City fire alarm system was respon sible for the series of alarms that Bounded late Wednesday afternoon. THEATIIE Swansboro Pirates, Newport Hawks to Continue Rivalry Smyrna Lassies Are Favorites 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 fort tonight. 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 story, however. 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 licking. 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 predicts. 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 CARTERET COUNTY" 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 shot. 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. Top Competitors | 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 the coach. 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 leg. 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 Wallace Bulldogs 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 petition 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 guards. 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 sell. 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 tournament champions). 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. "TRULY CARTERET'S FINEST THEATRE" Daily at 12:30 P.M. Box Offica Opens LAST TIMES ?
