J intended to invite three men, in

I of Government, a representative
from the League of Municipalities
and a tax lawyer.
The tax accounting system used
several years ago, according to
Mr. Walker, is so fouled up that
nobody knows what to do. He es
timated that there are 4,000 ac
counts which may or may not have
Since there Is no way to collect
most of these, the town is interest

the records straight. Any real es

Commiasion issued a joint state
ment recently praising the results
of the Morehead City conference
among the two atate agencies,
Southern Railway and Carteret,

Speaking for the highway com

of his advance planning engineers

will be affected by the location.
Similar pledges of cooperation
came from Southern Railway offi

Director Babcock pointed out
that it is essential that a new

as soon as possible, but cautioned
that any decision to place the new
bridge beside the old one or to
move it farther north over the
Newport River should be based on
careful surveys of both port de
velopment and traffic generation
John M. Reeves, chairman of
the State Ports Authority reiter
ated that his group will begin im
mediately to study the long-range
needs of the Morehead City port.
Mr. Reeves said the first phase of
the study will provide highway
commission engineers with the
basic information they must have
to proceed with their projected
plans for the area. He added that
the study will be coordinated with
officials of highway commission
representatives, as well as Sou
thern Railway's planning group.
Mr. Babcock told the group funds
are available for construction of
the bridge but before the commis
sion would consider any location,
it would want the best advice it
could obtain from all agencies and
groups in order that the facility
would serve the greatest need and
promote future development of the

section would go into a detailed
survey of traffic needs and land
