Little League Profits
By Team Member's Deed
The Little League of Beaufort *
got an unexpected financial boost
this month and quite a pat on the
back because of a good deed per
formed by one of the members of
the Moose team, Leslie Moore Jr.
A letter which was sent to Henry
Hatsell, manager of the Moose
nine, and printed below, best ex
plains the story:
June 16, 1958
I am enclosing $1 toward the Lit
tle League baseball team in honor
of Leslie Moore. We find very few
people with his honesty and in
Recently, while my husband was
stationed at Camp Lejeune, N. C.,
we were spending the weekend
there in Beaufort and Morehead
City, having a wonderful time until
I left my billfold and a $20 bill and
change amounting to 12 cents in a
We turned around and went
home, never expecting to see the
billfold or the money again. How
ever. Leslie found my billfold and
told his daddy about it. Then they
turned it in to the MP's in More
head City who notified us. We re
turned to Beaufort and collected
my billfold, the $20 bill and the 12
cents. Then we went to \isit this
9-year-old who could be so honest.
As soon as we met the Moore
family, we could see why. They in
vited us in and troated us like old
Then as we started to leave, I
laid a bill in Leslie's hand. He re
fused. I insisted and then he re
quested that I donate the money to
the Little League instead. He said
it would make him happier than for
him to take the bill.
So there you have the story about
an honest deed of a little boy.

Ann's Reopens; State Seeks
New Way to Get it Closed
Judge Joseph W. Parker signed
a superior court order Friday
morning dissolving a restraining
order against Ann's Drive-In, but
Robert Rouse Jr., solicitor, is now
enlisting the aid of the attorney
The restraining order was signed
week-before-last by superior court
judge W. J. Bundy and closed
Ann's for a maximum period of 20
Judge Parker said the court was
of the opinion that there is insuffi
cient evidence on which to make
the restraining order permanent.
The decision was reached before
any witnesses went to the stand for
the defense Friday morning. The
afternoon before, defense attorney
Claud Wheatly had called on six
witnesses to testify that Ann's did
not constitute a community nuis
The first witness was Paul Ram
sey, who lives about 600 yards from
the drive-in. He admitted that the
place had a bad reputation and
that he had only been inside one
He said that he used to hear the
juke box but had not heard it re
Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Wilson were
the next witnesses called. They tes
tified that they lived about two
blocks from Ann's place. Both had
signed a petition asking the state
to prohibit the selling of beer in the
Wild wood community.
They swore, however, that they
signed the petition to keep another
beer joint from coming in, not to
imply that there was anything
worng with Ann's place.
Wesley C. Long was the next wit
ness. He lives about two miles west
of the drive-in. In his opinion the
whole trouble was caused by "a
few nosy neighbors." He said that
he went to Ann's occasionally to
buy a beer and never saw any fault
with the way the place was run.
Mr. and Mrs. Millard Thorne
were the last witnesses to appear
I Thursday afternoon. Both declared
that they knew of no circumstances
at Ann's that were detrimental to
After hearing Mrs. Thome's tes
timony, Judge Parker called for a
recess until 9:30 a.m. Friday. Ik

Judge Hamilton had been hired
by residents of the Wildwood sec
tion to assist solicitor Robert
Rouse Jr. in showing why Ann's
should be permanently closed.
As soon as court convened Friday
morning, Judge Parker called on
Judge Hamilton for his opinion.
Judge Hamilton explained that
even though he had been hired by
the residents of the community and
lived there himself he was still an
officer of the court and obligated
to give an honest answer.
University Women Sponsor
Well-Attended Art Show

Morehcad branch of the American
Asaocialion of University Women
Saturday in Morehead City.
Mra. Ray Brown, president, said
the display of paintings and ce
ramics-ware attracted many visi
tors throughout the day. The show
was held on the sidewalk on S. 8th
Street beside Rose's 5 and 10.
"We could have sold two-thirds
of tbe paintings," Mrs. Brown said.
"People were particularly interest

scenes." Paintings were for exhibit
only. She reported similar interest
in the ceramics items with the sea
The ceramics-ware was made by
members of the AAUW here. Pro

He said that, according to his
interpretation of the law, the state
did not have grounds to continue
the case since testimony indicated
that the drive-in has been operated
in a considerable manner since
March, when a Marine was fatally
Judge Parker said that was also
his opinion and called on Mr. Rouse
[for a comment. The solicitor said
he felt it was his job to stick by
his guns even though the man
hired to assist him had disagreed
on a point of law.
Mr. Rouse said that it takes a
while for the law to move. As soon
as the public eye was turned on
Ann's as a result of the shooting
things began to become more quiet
there, he pointed out.
He said the two girls alleged to
be using a trailer behind the drive
in for a house of prostitution moved
on, the outdoor speakers for the
juke box were turned off, or low,
and the drive-in was operated more
circumspectly as soon as the law
began to investigate.
He said it did not appear to be
reasonable to dismiss the action
because the place had been "clean
ed up" while the sheiff's depart
ment was keeping close tabs on
the drive-in. He implied that as
soon as things quieted down the
same activities would begin again.
He requested the court stenog
rapher to prepare a transcript of
the case to be sent to the state at
torney general's office for consid
eration. That office has the power
to close a place of business under
a different statute than the one
to which a solicitor is limited.
The court order does not affect
the military ruling on the place
that put it off limits 18 hours after
the fatal shooting in March.
