WE ALL LIKE A CERTAIN
AMOUNT OF FLATTERY
It must be human nature to like
to be flattered or have folks say
something nice about you. At least
that’s been the experience of the
publishers of this newspaper during
the past week and since the first is
sue was distributed.
We’ve had the most kindest words
and thoughts expressed to us by word
of mouth, by letters, telegrams and
long distance telephone calls, and it
wouldn’t be true if we said we didn’t
like all these very fine compliments.
However, we know something of a
newspaperman’s lot, and are aware
that the future will not be a bed of
roses, We’ve joined the others of
our ilk, and to each one that wished
us success and paid such high com- j
pi intents, we want to say that we’re!
•willing and anxious to cooperate in j
any way possible with our fellow
newspaper men, to the end that we
might be of some service to them, as j
well as help its to be a credit to the j
community in which we’ve cast our
Again, we want to thank everyone
who has expressed an interest in our
behalf, arid only for the fact that, it \
would appear that we’re “tooting our j
own horn,” we’d publish the compli
ments paid us in the past several
It’s a distinct credit to the city of
ficials to have erected a traffic signal
at the comer of Moseley and Queen
streets this week.
That intersection for some reason!
seems just a little more dangerous!
than any in town. Several accidents
have occurred at this point, and with
increased traffic on the road leading!
from Chowan bridge into the city , l
the installation of a tra;ffi signal

The police department has been no
tified to arrest violators, but would |
it n6t be a great deal better if every J
motorist would be governed by . the j
signal and make the success of the
traffic light voluntary rather than 1
forced by the police?
The call of a textile strike is an
unfortunate situation at this particu
lar time. Both sides (and it takes
two sides for any argument ) will j 1
suffer. At this writing both capital j '
and labor would like the world to be-j ]
lieve that their particular side of '
the argument is the stronger.
It is to be. honed that strikers will
not take the at itude that the govern- '
ment will deliberately hand out
money to meet their wants just be- ‘
cause they have gone on strike.
The government has taken the
stand that no?ody in the country
shall be hungry, hut at the wages
now received, workers could buy
more than merely enough to satisfy
the pangs of hunger.
True, textile workers may think
that they have a hard lot, but who
hasn’t had a similar case during the
past several years ? The Herald be
lieves that, without outside agitation,
the textile workers would be a more
satisfied people, and to go on strike
at this time will hardly bring much
benefit to them.
With the possibility that some of
the mill owners would rather close
their mills than to operate, it’s too
bad that another method beside a
strike cowli not be found to settle

I’m in the same boat with D. B.
Liles. The other morning Mr. Liles,
who is the high cockalorum of Liles’
5, 10 and 25-cent store, was sweep
ing off the pavement prior to open
ing the store. I asked if he was
promoted or demoted, and he in
formed me he had to do a little of
everything these days. And that’s
just the thing I’ve been doing. Hav
ing advanced to the highest position
in a newspaper office a couple of
' years ago, I became a tramp printer
for a spell and now having again
gained the title of editor, I find that
it means being reporter, head writ
er, typesetter, make-up man and
even sweeping up the floor and drag
ging out the trash box for the trash
truck. But, shucks, what’s that as
long as we receive the compliments
like we did last week on our first
But speaking of that first edition,
Hec Lupton and I do not wish to
“hog” all the credit. Captain Leon
Billington, our job printer was just
as loyal as we were in getting out
the edition. He worked hard and
long, and he’s the first fellow I ever
saw feed a press while asleep. I
don’t know how he attained the title
of “Captain,” but if I can find out
i’ll sure let the cat out of the bag.
Well, baseball is over now, and we
lost the league championship. But
at that the management should be
congratulated for being able to hold a
: team together that could play in the
1 seiies, especially when three of the
teams were forced to quit the league.
If you wanted to see anybody you
| knew you should have been at the
game Sunday. A large crowd was
• on hand and familiar, faces from all
over this section of the State were
Even Charlie Swanner was there,
and when Edenton made one run
near the end of the game Charlie
said it was like getting a nibble
when a fellow was fishing all day
without catching a fish.
I have a crow to pick with Mr.
Sam Morris. He subscribed to the
Herald and said this column always
; makes him laugh. I’m wondering if
he means to infer that it is a “joke.”
I’ve always wondered why folks
who come to Edenton hate like the
dickens to leave the town. But Doc
Whichifrd tells, me of a reason which j
he heard. He said the reason folks '
-tuy here is because after remaining
here, for awhile they get so consarn j
pcor they can’t get away. Well, I ,
reckon the agony of starving to death
: -n’t any move severe in Edenton than !
One of the hus drivers sort of |
forgot himself the next day after the I
bus terminal was transferred from
Hotel Hinton to S. C. Mills building.
It’s said that one of them drove up
to the hotel and waited fpr pas
sengers a few minutes before he
realized the change had been made.
Well, what’s a few minutes? If you
don’t think those drivers can make
up a few minutes, just take a ride
with them when they are running a

our first issue, and while none of
them has gone to our head, we espe

He put his “Monkey Doodle” in the
. water for the first time and enjoyed
a short ride in the bay. He, Oscar
Duncan and Gilbert Hollow-ell car
ried the boat from its parking place
, on “Cheap Side” and dumped it over
board. Mr. Kramer was w-ell pleas
, ed with the maiden trip of the boat,
and now I’m trying to get up with
, him to get a boat ride.
Zeddie Perry of Bertie County,

Chowan tobacco growers are so
licited to bring their tobacco to the
Planters warehouse in Williamston.
This warehouse is in charge of J.
J. Cozart, George D. Foxworth and
Carlisle Langley, all experienced to
bacco men, and they are highly rec
ommended for fair dealing and do
ing their utmost to secure the high
est price for tobacco placed in their

on the reputation that “once the
farmers see us in operation, we make
customers and friends quickly.” They
