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. "Kerr Scott got the farmer out of the mud. Our job is to get the farmer out of the hole." -nTerry Sanford. "We must get started on the job of paving school bus routes.?' Terry Sanford.

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 al District. 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 year. " 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.
