Ready When Needed
On the whole, Edenton people will be very much en
couraged about the information brought back from
Washington Tuesday to the effect that the status of the
Edenton Marine Corps Air Station will remain unchanged
at least for the present. When it was learned that there
was a strong possibility that the Edenton base would be
closed very shortly, a delegation from the Chamber of
Commerce hurriedly arranged a trip to Washington to
use all the influence at its hands and to confer with any
body to prevent the base’s closing.
This is just another instance of the value of a Cham
ber of Commerce. When any matter or problem arises
which affects the community as a whole, a Chamber of
Commerce should be the proper clearing house, from
where should start any concerted action. Such missions
as the one regarding the base is not a matter of one or
a few individuals, but it should represent the wishes and
sentiments of the entire community. It is for that rea
son that more business people and individuals should be
members of and support the Chamber of Commerce.
There will be a continuation of situations which will re
quire the services and efforts of a live Chamber of
Commerce, for what affects a community as a whole ne
cessarily affects the individuals making up the com
The Chamber of Commerce is to be complimented for
its prompt action in connection with the latest informa
tion that the base was to have been closed very shortly
The visit to Washington obviously was worth while in
that the Edenton group was informed that the status of
the base remains unchanged.
Not only do Edenton people want the base to continue,
but the same desire is prevalent among many of the
Marines stationed here. Many have invested in homes
and gone to much other expense, so that a change from
the present status would result in no little inconvenience,
sacrifice and loss.
It’s funny how much argument people will go through
with for the sake of saving a few dollars.
You can hardly please some people. There are those
complaining that they haven’t had enough cold weather.
Religion may save the human race, but it won’t be
through resolutions passed at mass meetings.

Heard & Seen
Edenton apparently will not be outdone. A gang in
Boston made a million and a half dollar haul, and 1 see
by the papers that a couple fellows here in North Caro
lina swiped 168 colonies of bees. But here in Edenton
somebody’s been stealing garbage cans. At least two
complaints have been made to me that new trash cans
have been stolen recently, and the owners are plenty
sore about it Well, the cops are on the lookout, and if
the scudders are caught—well, they’ll be in the same fix
as the snatchers of bees and the dough in Boston..
Though still not being stoop-shouldered and able to
get about without the use of a cane, Branning Perry
last week became grandpappy. His daughter, Nonna,
gave birth to a son in a Durham hospital, but the near
est I got to a cigar was to smell the stogie he was
smoking when telling me about the event. He said he
isn’t supposed to pass out cigars. The old tightwad —he
ought to help out his eon-in-daw a little bit.
Well, I attended the North Carolina Press Institute
in Chapel Hill last week, where I again learned that my
problems on a newspaper are just about the same as
other newspaper folk. Os course, “shop” isn’t the only
thing on the agenda at these meetings, so I’m going
along with the guy who proposed raising double-breast
ed chickens. Maybe I’d have a better chance of getting
some white meat at some of these chicken dinners I
get in on.
Added to the collection on and about my desk is a
cocoanut still in the shell as it was taken from a tree.
It’s a souvenir given me by Edgar Pearce following his
recent trip to Florida, Edgar tells me he got the cocoa
nut on Mondonga Island, which is only four miles from
the winter home of John L. Lewis. They ought to make
that scudded spend his winters far up north so he would
have the benefit of the trouble he causes in the coal min
ing business. Anyway, the cocoanut is a queer looking
thing and is another reason why I want to take a trip
to Florida sometime. T’anks, Edgar.
The nerve of some people! As if I have had no hard
luck for about a year, on Monday I received in the mail
the following letter:
“The luck of this card has been sent to you. It has
been carried around the world four times by officers.
The one who breaks the chain will have bad luck. Please
copy this and see what happens in four days. Send this
and four copies to whom you wish good luck. Don’t
send money and don’t keep this copy. It must leave you
within 24 hours. After receiving it, Sam Alton received
$15,000. After receiving t, Lee Dilton receved $13,000
and lost it after breaking the chain. You are to have
good luck in four days after receiving it. It is no joke.
You will receive it by mail. Good luck—”.
Weil, if I am to have any luck at all, it should be good
for a change, for I’ve had quite a variety of hard luck
for a spell. Anyway, if thousands of dollars are to come
my way, I’ll get to writing and forget about this dam
Members of the degree of Pocahontas will sponsor a ]
Valentine dance in the Edenton armory Saturday night, I
February 11. This is a new organization which includes i
a group of energetic women banded together to carry on
a good work. Here’s hoping a large crowd attends the
dance so that the first major activity of the ladies will
be a success. Why some of the Pocahontas gals them
selves will most likely dance with you if you go. Give ;
’em a lift! They’re trying to make the affair one which
will be very enjoyable.
It just isn’t fair. The other day Mike Kehayes came
back from fishing and had a nice string of jack pike.
One bird who saw the string at once accused Mike of
fishing somebody’s net. And speaking of jack pike, my
brother who lives in New Joisee balled me out, for he
says the proper name is pickerel. Sort of hifalutin’ up

Meeting Called For
Early In February
Herbert Hollowell Sets
Date as Either Feb
ruary 7 or 14
Herbert Hollowell, chairman of the
Chamber of Commerce Community
Chest Committee, stated this week
that a meeting will be called either
Tuesday night, February 7 or 14, to
further consider the organization of
a community chest in Edenton and
Chowan County. The date depends
upon the availability of the manager
of the Norfolk Community Chest, who
will be the principal speaker at the
The Community Chest idea has
cropped up frequently within the
past few years due to so many drives
for funds. There are quite a few
people who favor the idea, but to date
no definite action has been taken.
Mr. Hollowell has devoted a consider
able amount of time to the plan and
is very anxious to arrive at a decis
ion one way or another.
Mr. Hollowell 'himself has made an
exhaustive study of the Community
Chest and is in favor of the plan.
In connection with the idea, he sets
forth a few questions and answers
for the benefit of any who may not be
What is a community chest? A
community chest is a cooperative or
ganization of citizens and welfare
agencies. It has two chief function:
It raises funds each year primarily
for its affiliated social welfare, health
and recreation agencies. The funds
which it secures are raised by a com
munity appeal and distributed in ac
cordance with a systematic budget
procedure. It promotes effective
planning, coordination and adminis
tration of the social welfare, health
and recreation services of a com
munity. Direct responsibility may be
carried by a community welfare coun
What is a community welfare coun-
I cil ? A council is a voluntary associa
tion of citizens who represent tax
! supported and private social welfare,
health and recreation agencies, or
who serve as interested individuals.
It carries primary responsibility for
the planning and coordination of the
entire community social welfare pro
gram. Where the chest and council
are separately incorporated, the coun
cil may be described as the social
planning partner of the chest. In
some cities both the joint fund-rais
ing and the over-all social planning
functions are carried on by one' or
ganization—a combined chest and
IWhat is social planning? Social
planning is the devwtopmsnt and con
tinuous revision of the total program
of community health and welfare ser
vices, both private and tax-supported,
for the purpose of utilizing the total
financial and other resources of a com
munity to meet social and health
needs in the most effective and effici
ent manner possible.
What are some of the advantages ]
claimed for community chests? A
full realization of the advantages of
the community chest is, of course, de- !
pendent on able leadership and sound
administration. The disadvantages or
hazards, likewise, can be overcome by
the same means.
Following are some of the advant- .

more givers, thus assuring universal
and more adequate support of neces
