Let brotherly love continue.- —Heb. 13:1.
There’s no brotherhood of man Without the fatherhood
God of justice, save the people from the clash of race
and creed, from the strife of class and faction: make our
nation free indeed. Keep her faith in simple manhood
strong as when her life began, till it finds full fruition in
the brotherhood of man. —Wm. P. Merrill.
Time For Action
Many times it has been said that “what Edenton needs
is more smokestacks,” meaning l , of course, that more pay- .
rolls should be released in the community.
A local temporary committee has spent no little.amount
of time and energy in an effort to secure new .industries,
but now the time has- come when something concrete
must be done if Edentoq expects to land any of the many
industries who are seeking new locations.
The Edenton Development Corporation has been incur
porat('d in order- to be in position to offer help in secur
ing new industries in way of information and financial
assistance for sites. The minimum goal is SIOO,OOO which
will be paid back in way of rent. This is a large amount
of money, but smaller communities, than Edenton have
raised that much and even more. Edenton lost one in
dustry solely because of lack of organization and the in
ability to provide a site. Now another Winter garment
manufacturer desires to locate in Edenton if a building
is available to rent. This concern’s weekly payroll is •
said to be between SIO,OOO and $15,000. so that this
money would .flow into the various channels of Edenton’s
business life, as well as benefit the town in many other
A committee is now canvassing prospective purchasers I
of stock in the corporation in the hope that SIOO,OOO can :
he raised. It is hoped many will buy a few shares rather j
than a few buying many Shares, for by so doing the offi- j
rials of the concern will naturally feel that they are i
wanted in the community. Os course, many who are j
anxious to see new industry come to Edenton and Cho- J
Wan County are not in position to purchase much stock, j
but to he sure them is enough money, in Chowan. County
to insure raising SIOO,OOO for the purpose of attracting
new industry and help Edenton to progress.
Deserve Better Support j
Though the Edenton Colonials are occupying the cellar j
position in the Albemarle. League, they have been play- |
ing a fair brand of baseball, which deserves better at- I
tendance. And the same can be said about the Rocky J
Hock club. The number of fans who are attending do |
not produce enough revenue to support a baseball club j.
even under the policy of not hiring players.
In previous years when attendance fell off the reason
advanced by some was that they knew very few of tin
players and that it would he more interesting if local
hoys were in the lineup. This year only local boys are
used, but instead of .attendance increasing it is gradually
falling off—-to such an extent, in fact,: that officials of.
the Edenton Colonials are not very optimistic that the
team will finish out the season in the league. They feel
that their efforts n providing baseball in Edenton are
riot appreciated and are reluctant to continue, when the
income from gate receipts fall short of meeting the. ac
Os course, one cannot reasonably expect, to see; the I
brand of. ball played in leagu>-< where play, rs are paid
for the a- .ability, but .yen then some thrilling games
have 1... . it playiil on the local diamond, so tluit the home
town boys deserve better support than has been the ease
thus far this season.
You may have any number of good excuses for not do
ing something, but nobody is interested in any of them.
Narrow-minded people sometimes limit the amount of
intellectual progress that can be made in a community

Heard & Seen!

Apparently judges, like newspaper folk, often receive
some strange requests. Take for instance Judge Marvin
Wilson who last week received a “distress appeal to
farmers of the United States” which came from a certain
John Henry Smith of Texas, inventor of a machine for
farms. Smith says the patent office has been making
one excuse or another for not allowing the patent and
denying an appeal to the Appeals Board for a rehearing.
Judge Wilson was requested to let the farmers know
about this engine and tell people about the necessity of
requiring a promise from Congressional candidates to
vote for the patent of this engine for a congressional pat
ent. Like a lot of ridiculous requests, Judge Wilson rele
gated it to the waste basket.
Sneaking off Wednesday of last week. I took a hurried
trip to Pennsylvania and New Jersey to visit relatives
and in the course of my visit I really saw New York. But
so far as I am concerned, they can have the place for liv
ing purposes—l wouldn’t want to make the place my
home for even a week. It’s nice to go on a little trip,
but the pleasure of arriving home is far greater than
that experienced while getting ready to leave. And be
sides, after returning, a. fellow in my position has to
“pay the fiddler” in order to catch up with the work
• which has accumulated.
While away last week I was talking with a fishing
enthusiast in New Jersey, He was telling me he recently
1 caught two bass just under the size limit. “What did
1 you do With them?” 1 asked. “Well,” he said, “it’s only
j one thing you can do—throw ’em hack.” But by intima
tion I understood that what he really meant was “back
in the boat.” Sort of like some fellows who catch fish
over the limit in this neck of the woods—they sort of
forget how to count when the number runs into two fig
Leaving Edenton Wednesday of last Week when the
mercury was hovering around the 100 mark, I learned
a lesson while traveling. Stopping at several air-con
ditioned motels about dusk, I learned that travelers stop- I
ped as early as 3 o’clock in the afternoon to get out of
the heat and into a cool room. As a result I sweated it
out Wednesday night which taught me a lesson that
| hereafter when traveling it will be a good policy to stop
to sleep before time to go to bed. A fellow is never too .
old to learn.
Eden ton’s Colonials are having a hard time to win
games lately, although some very good games have been
played. They’re in the cellar at present which is one
j consolation—if the standings are turned upside down,
! Edenton will be on top.

Meetings of Chowan Tribe of Red Men will not be the
j same since the passing of my friend Bill Munden. With
| out a doubt, he was the most loyal and devoted member
i of the tribe ever since I’ve been in Edenton. so that the
i Red Men will surely miss him. If every member of ev
ery organization in Edenton was as interested and loyal
j to their organization as Bill Munden was to the Red
: Men, what,a difference you’d see in the growth and use
fulness of each group.
| About this time of year one of my visits includes a
I run out to see Asa Griffin. Asa says his watermelons
I are ripe and that he has some good ’uns, so just as soon
| as I can I’M go out to his farm to inquire “how he’s feel
! in’.” What I’m expecting him to say when I leave is
"Goodbye, come out to see me again next year about this
And speaking about watermelons, I bought a few to
take to some relatives last week. In one instance, the wa- j
termelon was so good I thought my brother would eat
rind and all. 1 was sort of on the spot, for I had been
telling him that Chowan County watermelons were the
bestest, in the world.
By:".;vu Hardware Company is staging a homemaking
party tonight ( Thursday) in the electrical department of
, their store, starting at 7:30 o’clock.. Various demonstra
tions of electrical equipment will be given by Miss Betty
Faulconr-r. Westinghouse home economist, and besides
two door prizes will he awarded and refreshments will he
served. The party is free and the store is air-conditioned,
so the By rum’s are expecting a lug crowd.
Attention; is called to the fact that dog lreenses and
bicycle licenses are now due. At the Town office the dog
licenses cfui bo purchased and the police are selling the
bicycle licenses. Os course, if none are purchased, the
police will attend to that matter, too. so it might be a
good idea to attend to this matter at once and eliminate
the possibility of brushing with the law.
