"The State Highway Commission should he returned to the people so a man
won't have to go all the way to Raleigh to get a load of gravel for his road."
"Our best program for Agriculture is the second phase of the Kerr Scott plan
to help the North Carolina farmer. The first stage of the Scott plan was funda
mental: roads, electricity, telephones, to lift up rural life and to lay the ground
work for improved income. He never had a chance to put into effect the second
stage? production, processing, marketing, to lift up income.

of the hole." -nTerry Sanford.

On Saturday May 28th
The 14-county First Congressional District has
since 1898 been represented in Congress by men
who made their homes in Washington in Beaufort
County. During those 62 years, no other county
and no other community has sent to Congress the
representative of the district.
Pitt, the largest county in the district, has sent
only two members to the U. S." House of Repre
sentatives and they were Louis C. Latham in 1 SS7
and Harry Skinner in 1895.
From Pitt County this year a capable, qualified
man who has proved himself as a political leader
has offered himself as a candidate for Congress
from the First Congressional District. He is high
ly regarded not only in Pitt, but in other counties
of the district and throughout the state.
We urge the people of Pitt County to unite be
hind the candidacy of Walter B. Jones of Farmville
for Congress in the May Primary. We likewise
urge the people of other counties of the district to
consider carefully the qualifications of this candi
date. If they do, we are confident they will join
the people of Pitt County in supporting Walter
Jones as representative from the First Congression
For the first time in 14 years, voters of the dis
trict this year will be confronted with the decision
on which of two candidates for the Democratic
nomination should represent them in Congress.
Veteran Congressman Herbert C. Bonner of
Washington, who has held the post since he was
appointed to succeed Lindsay Warren in 1940, is
running for re-election. 1
Also seeking the post is Walter Jones who has
represented Pitt County in the North Carolina Gen
eral Assembly since 1955, and has proved himself
a forceful, resourceful and capable legislator. In
each of the sessions of the General Assembly in
which he has served Walter Jones has exerted
leadership in movements that show clearly his con
cern for good government and better government
goes far beyond the boundaries of Pitt County. In
1955 he co-sponsored a bill a prohibit the sale
of lewd comic books in the state, and he spear
headed a bill that would provide a retirement fund
for law enforcement officers throughout the state.
During the 1957 session, Rep. Jones introduced
and pushed through the legislature over powerful
opposition a bill that created the compulsory au
tomobile liability insurance law to provide greater
protection for the people of North Carolina.
In the most recent session, Rep. Jones led the
unsuccessful movement which would have restored
the State Highway Commission to an organiza
tion of 14 members representing all geographic
areas of the state and putting the Commission clos
er to the people. In both the 1957 and 1959 ses
sions he led the fight for establishment of a four
year school of nursing at East Carolina College
which was approved by the General Assembly last
The legislature record of Walter Jones shows
he is a sound capable leader, a representative of
the people who stand for progress and one who
has the ability and energy to effectively represent
the people in places of high government respon
sibility. Walter Jones' record of leadership on the com
munity, county and state level clearly mark him
as a man who is capable of government responsi
bility much greater than that which he has yet
had, and as a mart who is destined to foe of much
greater public service to the people of the area in
which he lives.
