BENEFITS OF A NEW BRIDGE
It is gratifying to report that the contract
for building the new bridg eover the Roanoke Riv
er here will be let next week. More complete de
tails concerning the type of bridge is give in a
news article of this issue of The Herald.
Should a satisfactory low bid be received by
the State Highway Department on Tuesday, work
on the new bridge should start in September. Ac
tual construction work will probably take six or
Weldon business men report a gratifying
business during the months the bridge there has
been under construction. A good sized crew of
men, busy over a period of several months at
good pay, is always helpful to local business. Lo
cal merchants can look forward to several new
customers fiom the crews which will be working
here during ^he Fall and Winter months.
The contractor will also find it necessary to
buy many things from local concerns and this will
help increase business for several lines of local
trade in the hardware, lumber and supply busi
Another pleasing feature of the new bridge
is that traffic will not be tied up at any time dur
ing construction. With a new bridge going up
several hundred foot up the river, the present
bridge can be used until the new bridge is opened
Of course, these are only a few of the tem
porary benefits to be derived by this community
in this final solving of the bridging problem, the
great permanent relief coming in having a bridge
of modern design, built for heavy traffic, high
above all high water marks: a truly permanent
structure befitting the largest industrial com
munity in this section of the State.
WONT BE LONG NOW
Less than a month from now, school bells will
be ringing once more for the more than 2,000
school children of the Twin Cities.
Vacation is drawing rapidly to a close and
days of leisure and loafing wall be over for a time.
But we do not believe there is as much antipathy
on the part of the pupils of today toward return
ing to school as in the days of old when there was
very little extra-curricula wprk.
These days they are making school attend
ance more of a pleasure by devoting a part of the
time to developing more than the mind. The body,
the social relationships, poise, balance, musical
and histrionic talents, all are stress ed, so that the
pupil who takes part in many of the activities of
school, besides studies, is,' able to graduate a well
rounded personage. S
Listening to a group of youngsters orating
recently, one of the leading business men of this
community remarked at the excellent deportment
and stage presence of the youngsters and express
ed keen regret that he had not been taught just
such when at school.
Then there are the sports, indoor and outside,
the class societies, the plays and musicales, and
nil the other activities which belong to the school
life of today, which make it a busy time for the
pupil who takes part and at the same time gives
the necessary time to the more serious side known
Yes, school days will soon be here, and every
boy and girl who wants to, can make them care
free, pleasant days, with just a little hard work.
After all, we are happiest when busiest. Plenty of
work and plenty cf play will make you sing, even
of school days: “Happy days are here again.”
OUR NEW MAYOR
A community will ride a good horse to death,
as long as that animal will be willing. This seems
to apply to the new Mayor of Roanoke Rapids.
George N. Taylor was chosen by the Town
Board of Commissioners to fill out the unexpired
term of Dr. Long. C. T. Kidd, who was runner
up at the last city election, was chosen to fill
the vacancy on tht Board,
Mayor Taylor is one of the most succesful
business men in rhe Twin Cities. With his home
and property in Roanoke Rapids and his business
in Rosemary, he seems the ideal type to bring
these two communities closer together. He has
two brothers who are prominent in business, in
Roanoke Rapids so that his every decision will be
tempered with the thought of what is best for
the community as a whole.
He recently completed a term as rresiuem m
the Rosemary Merchant’s Association, which is
education enough for anyone aspiring to a May
or’s office. Last week he completed a term as
the first Post Commander of the newly organized
Legion Post, where his enthusiasm and leadership
brought that organization to the front in the
State. He has long been a leader in church and
lodge. He was one of the charter members and
officers of the Kiwanis Club. As a member of
the Town Board of Commissioners for several
terms, he is thoroughly acquainted with the prob
lems which continually confront the “City Fath
Mayor Taylor should receive the unqualified
support of every citizen during his tenure of of
ANOTHER ARGUMENT FOR ONE TOWN
With any big construction project under way,
there are many advantages to the nearby city, but
there are also disadvantages which no sensible
person can deny and which can be controlled if
the proper measures are taken.
Especially in these days of unemployment,
the news of a big construction job spreads over
the country like wildfire and a city finds itself
surfeited with job seekers, who failing to find
jobs turn to other methods of keeping alive which
are not conducive to the peacefulness of those
desiring law and order.
There comes also me mi ran ui me wu«wj .
the camp followers, the parasites and leeches liv
off the hard-earned money of hard-working men.
They present a problem of no small consequence
to the peace officers of a community, as well as
to decent citizens.
It will be necessary, in order to control such
persons, to have a city organization which can |
hold a firm grip on the situation at all times and
from the very start. We have 2,000 school chil
dren here now. There would be many more then.
Those children must be protected in precept and
by example. It is to be hoped that the two towns
will be one. so some central organization can be
held responsible for the conduct of those who will
be attracted herir. not for honest toil, but for
shady and illegal purposes.
This community is free of burglary and
thieving. A man’s home here is safe from in
trusion. His family has had no fear, no matter
how dark the night. A woman or girl can tra
verse our streets at any hour without fear of in
sult. At all costs, we must keep things this way.
One central organization can best cope with such
a problem. It is just one more argument in favor
of one town here instead of two.
BREAKING A NINE YEAR RECORD
A masked mob of 200 men took Oliver Moore,
29 year old Negro, from the Edgecombe county
jail Tuesday night and hung him to a tree until he
was dead. The Negro was charged with assault
ing two small white girls, ages* 5 and 7. They
are in a hospital being treated for venereal dis
ease contracted from Moore. A most horrible
crime, planned and carried out by this Negro,
brings to North Carolina its first lynching in
nine years. Moore is said to have confessed the]
crime when arrested. Pulpit, press and officials
will say such a thing can be avoided. Our belief
is that under the circumstances it is just as dif
ficult to prevent a lynching as it is to prevent the
crime which was responsible for the lynching.
