Nelva More Returns,
To Leave for Kinston

She will be in Kinston tomorrow

Dan Walker, town manager of
Beaufort, estimated yesterday that
the stopping of free services to the
town by the telephone company
would cost the town $432 a year.
Mr. Walker said that he has not
yet received a letter from the
phone company about the new
charges, but he has been informed
by the League of Municipalities.
In its recent decision on the
phone company's request for high
er rates, the utilities commission
said that in the future it could not
consider the "loss" the phunc com
pany incurs in providing certain
free services for municipalities,
Mr. Walker remarked.
While all municipalities pay for
most of the phone services they
receive, ther are some free ser
For example, in the Beaufort
police department, the phone in
the Front Street station is consid
ered a free phone (the only fee
paid there is $1 a month for an
outside gong); the phone at the
foot of Craven Street on Front
with an outside gong costs the
town $3.63 a month. For the ex
tension to the Morehcad City cen
tral radio switchboard, the town
of Beaufort pays $1.75 plus $11.94
in mileage and 40 cents for a
switch. That is on a monthly basis.
(The switch allows the central op
erator to take Beaufort police calls
when Beaufort officers are not
within earshot of a phone ring).
Neither the chief of police nor
assistant chief pay local service
fees on their home phones, Mr.
Walker said. He estimated that
imposing the full rates by the
phone company will cost Beaufort
$12 in the police department, fire
department and town hall, or a to
tal of $36 a month.
Wants to Close ~
The Seashore Transportation Co.,
which operates buses into More
head City, proposes closing the
Morehead City bus station and
maintaining a "bus stop" in More
Mayor George W. Dill, Morehead
City, said that R. C. O'Bryan, traf
fic manager of the bus company,
has requested the town to approve
the closing of the station and also
suggest a location for a bus "stop".
The matter was placed before the
town board Thursday night but no
action was taken. According to a
letter from Mr. O'Bryan to the
mayor, the town's approval, and
the approval of the Chamber of
Commerce, is needed before the
bus station can be closed.
The bus company claims that
the amount of business done in
Morehead City does not warrant
keeping the station open.
Mayor Dill said yesterday that
he would like to know the feeling
of the public on closing the bus sta
tion. He said the town board will
make no move until some expres
sion of opinion is heard from the
residents of the town.
George R. Wallace, Morehead
City, reported to the County Board
of Education, at a special meeting
yesterday morning, on the outcome
of a meeting last Monday with W.
E. Easterling of the Local Govern
ment Commission. ?
County officials met with Mr.
Easterling relative to the proposed
school bond issue.
The first step which must be
taken toward borrowing money for
schools is the publication of a legal
notice once a week for two weeks.
After that published notice, with
publisher's affidavit, has been
filed with the Local Government
Commission, the commission can
either approve or disapprove.
If it approves, the county board
of education can proceed with
plans for a referendum. The bor
rowing must be approved by the
H. L. Joslyn, county superin
tendent of schools, said the way
things appear now, the referendum
cannot be held before January.
