What Every Woman...
An American version of “What Every Woman Knows
has just been enacted in “real life” in La Crosse, Wis
consin. Sir James Barrie’s thesis that a woman is back
of every man’s success has taken, however, a new twist
in La Crosse. And fairness is served thereby.
In this story, the cause of the success of the Man o
the Year” is a woman, but so is the “Man of the Y ear
Mrs. Alf Gundersen won that title and a plaque awarded
by the Chamber of Commerce for distinction in local civic
Some may say that the La Crosse chamber should ne\ -
er have assumed that the only persons likely to qualify
for the award would be men. The chances are, however,
that the chamber never assumed anything of the sort.
Being largely composed of male members, it momentarily
forgot the existence of the opposite sex.
But one must admit that the male element in this case
has made handsome amends. For it has not only ad
mitted that a woman is the “person of the year” but
even permitted that person to be called the “man” of the
year. The male of the species may err but its repent
ance is always truly touching.
And that, too, is what every woman knows. —Christian

THE CHOWAN HERALD EPEMTON, N. O, THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 23, IMO_
Heard & Seen
I lost my nerve Thursday of last week yes, sir, I lost
,my nerve! Several colored men were busy as bees cut
ting down trees and bushes at the Cupola House while
some of the ladies *at complacently on the porch. I
walked over with the intention of saying what some of
’em have said to me on various occasions about trees,
but . . . yep, I lost my nerve. Anyway, some of the old
bushes are gone and the yard looks sort o’ bare, but a
truck was parked in front of the Cupola House filled with
all kinds of bushes and shrubbery, which will replace
those which were cut down. Oh, well, it all goes to show
that it is simply the way one looks at things in connec
tion with improving the old town.
When it comes to persistency, Mayor Leroy Haskett
has it The other day he went home with an armful of
chitterlings and visioned a good square meal. But the
Missus promptly threw a monkey wrench in the works
when she stumped her foot on the floor and said, “You’re
not going to cook those things in my kitchen. The
Mayor pouted as his spirits dropped and after sitting
around for a while with his chin hanging on his chest,
he gathered the things together and went to his farm.
There in the open he dumped the things in a big iron
kettle, gathered some wood and proceeded to cook them.
His mouth watered and every once in a while he used a
stick to pick out a hunk to taste. In fact, he went
through that procedure so often that when the bloomin’
things should have been cooked, there were no more left
in the kettle. But he came home all smiles, for he had
a belly full of chitterlings. Nope, I haven’t been hungry
enough or worked up enpugh nerve to taste the things
up to now. For my part, they can give ’em back to the
hogs. I’ll take mine in ham. And incidentally, Edgar
Pearce thought I didn’t hear him the other night when
he said he was going to give me a mess one of these days.
And speaking about ham, the ladies who feed the Ro
tarians pulled a surprise the other Thursday. It i3n’t
unusual for them to pass around potatoes, beans or other
things on the menu a second time, but country ham is
closely guarded. However, much to my and other Ro
tarians’ surprise a plate full of ham made its way around
the table. Very few of the boys let the plate pass by, so
I’m not the only one who likes good ole country ham.
Every now and then I read something about move
ments on foot to curb moving pictures deemed unfit for
children (some of ’em are not fit for adults). But while
in Richmond over the week-end I attended a movie and
I’ve about come to the conclusion that the movie indus
try should sponsor a school to teach players in western
pictures to shoot straight. Why I saw some guys on the
screen shooting up a storm at close range and not a
single one dropped from his horse. It just don’t make
sense. They ought to use pop-guns.
Mrs. William Sexton presented her husband a real
Valentine on February 14 in way of a bouncing baby boy.
Bill celebrated by going fishing. He didn’t go fishing
for fish, however, but fished around to get up enough
bucks to pay the Doc. That’s four youngsters for Bill
and he hasn’t shelled out a single cigar. What’s he fig
uring on doing—wait until he owes me a whole brx?
Then Joe Conger, Jr., should take along a box of cigars
at the Rotary meeting today, for he, too, is now a pappy.
Speaking of eating, the youngsters in the Primary De
partment of the Methodist Church School were served
light refreshments the other Sunday morning in their
classes. Gosh, maybe they’re getting around to serving
something to eat at church services. That ought to
bring some of ’em out, especially on Sunday nights.

When John Campbell and his hardy

their home on the River IBann in Ire
land some 300 years ago, they were
seeking a domicile in Ithe new world
comparable to the one they were leev*
Yes, they sought a home situated
upon a beautiful river, which might
abound in various species of fishes,
such as shad, herring, rock et cetera,
similar to the ones they were depart
This they finally'found on the banks
of the Chowan River in what is now
Bertie County. They moored their
vessels and came ashore to, prospect.
So pleased were they with tllis lovely
spot that they decided to settle there.
They named it Colerain in honor of
its Irish counterpart.

Lions Club in Edenton decided that
Colerain should have * ch*, not only
for the purpose of fraternizing with
fellow Lions ijn this entire Albemarle
territory, but perhaps that alao It
might be a fine thing for them to ac- >
quire an acquaintance with their Lion
courine in the Irieh metropolis.
Consequently, West Leary, zone
chairman, Leroy Haskett and several
other members of the Edenton Club
went over the river and conversed
with a group of representative citizens
As a result of these efforts, Cole
rain can now boast being the “cub”
Lions Club in this zone and the Eden
ton Club can be justly proud of the
accomplishment, for the people of
i Colerain never do things by halves.
! Under the guiding hand of Intemat
-1 ional Counsellor Norman Trueblood,
the Colerain club became a reality
! last Thursday night, aC which time
; they elected their officers.
, There are 19 charter members and
the club plans a charter night pro
gram on April 7th. The qlub will
meet on the first and third Tuesday
of each month at the Colerain Com
■ munity Building at 6:30 o’clock.
President Hector Lupton of the
■ Edenton Club expressed his gratitude
over the success of this undertaking,
at the regular meeting of the lpcal
' organization Monday evening and pre
dicted that Colerain will become one of
