r With the successful openings of the
c USO clubs Mrs. J. P. Ricks, Jr., chair-
■ man of the local USO Committee, de
sires to be made known the back
ground and personalities responsible
for making the USO’s a reality.
, The idea of establishing a lounge
c for the service men originated early
’ last fall at a circle meeting of the
Episcopal Church, when presented by
Mrs. Gordon Bennett.
I Mrs. Viola J. Quilty, who formerly
1 worked with overseas entertainment,
. learned of the interest in establishing
additional recreational facilities for
the service personnel, and at her own
expense made the initial contact with
I the United Service Organizations,
i A group of interested citizens met
October hi, 195.1, at the home of Mrs.
Bennett, after it was realized that
such an operation was too extensive
for a local group. Based on a report j
by Mrs. Quilty, it was found neces
sary to secure the hacking of local or
ganizations and churches. J. P.
Ricks, Jr., acted as spokesman for the
group and obtained the endorsement
of a majority of the churches and
clubs for USO. Col. Cana van. com
manding officer of the Marine Auxili
ary Airfield, wholeheartedly approved
Tom Kunz, associate Regional Exe
cutive of United Sendee Organiza
tions. Tnc., of Atlanta, Ga., was pres
ent for the first committee meeting
with representatives from the various’
organizations and churches attending. (
Mr. Kunz at that time expressed the
opinion of a desperate need for USO
facilities, hut because of a limited na
tional USO budget recommended that
■ chances for securing USO service |
would he far greater if the town could ;
provide rent free locations.
A committee was appointed, com- j
posed of Dr. A. F. Downum, Father
Francis McCourt and Mrs. Ricks to
investigate available locations for
both Negro and white USO’s. Mr.
I Ricks recommended that the merch
lants be requested to contribute a nom
inal monthly fee to provide for the
At the December meeting the com
mittee was set up according to the '
USO policy statement. Elected to 1
office were Mrs. Ricks, chairman;
Tom Sharpe, co-chairman, and Park
er Helms, treasurer. The office of
secretary was later filled by Mrs. Ade
In the meantime members of the t
committee were conducted on a tour'
of the base that they might see the
lack of recreational facilities.
Following through an investigation '•
of likely locations, the committee vet- 1
od to rent the ballroom of the Joseph j
Howes Hotel for the white USO at $75
per month. Mr. Sharpe reported that
the Brown-Carver Library was avail
able ront free provided tho present
librarian’s salary be supplemented,
which met with approval of the com
i It was not until May 19 that a tele
gram was received advising the com
mittee that USO’s had been approved

USO, of which Edenton is an exten
sion, was present for the meeting and
■ informed the group that the Edenton
USO’s were under the direction of
Major M. I. McMahon of the Salva
tion Army, the member agency which
serves this area.
Mrs. R. P. Badham was named to
serve as staff aide at the white USO
and Miss Hattie Jerkin as staff aide
for the Negro USO.
Plans were gotten underway for
' furnishing the ballroom with Mrs.
i Quilty named as chairman of the fur
nishings committee. Assisting her on
the committee were Mrs. Badham,
Mrs. Marian James, Mrs. Bennett,
Miss Jerkin and Mr. and Mrs. Ricks,
who met at Mrs. Quilty’s home to plan
for securing furniture locally. The j
Negro USO was well furnished with
i furniture from the previous USO lo- j
cated there during the war.
It became immediately apparent |
that furniture was not available loc
ally and through Lt. Col. B. B. Man- 1
Chester, arrangements were made to j
secure furniture temporarily from
Cherry Point. The USO Building
Services are to come in the next few
months and furnish the USO ade
Grayson Harding, owner of the Jo
seph Hewes Hotel, has cooperated ful
ly with the committee and kept the
ballroom available to USO for nearly
[ six months. He also painted and sup
plied the material for drapes, as well
as arranging other details. Cor
nices were made for the ballroom by
C. B. Mooney.
The Negro USO interior was made
more attractive with a coat of paint
[donated by Mr. Harding and the ma- '
j terial for new drapes was contributed :
by Belk-Tyler’s and made by the Ma
rines at the Parachute Loft.
Naturally without the financial
backing of the merchants and inter
ested citizens USO would have been
impossible. Credit is to be given to
Parker Helms, who as treasurer, was
in charge of the fund raising.
Special thanks for his invaluable
assistance goes to Lt. Col. B. B. Man
chester, commanding officer of the
Marine Airfield, who made available
the Hobby Shop for repairing fumi- 1
ture and the Parachute Loft for mak- [
ing the draperies. The Officers’ Club •
