Money Well Spent
Town Council at its meeting Tuesday night complied j
with a request by Father Francis Smith., chairman of the-
Edenton USO Committee: Mrs. R. P. Badham. aid to the
USD director, and Chaplain Veltman of the Edenton Ma
rine Corps Auxiliary Landing Field, to sponsor Pal’s Day
which will be observed next Thursday night, November
IS. Parties will be held in the Edenton armory for white
Marines and at the Brown-C vryor Library for Negro Ma
The purpose of Pal’s P:iy is for Marines and tow r>- ,
people mingle and become better acquainted, thus mak
ing the. service people feel that they are. welcome a’ d
more at home. Alt Marines, officers and enlisted men.
will be invited, as is every citizen of Edenton. to attend
the parties. It was pointed out that the Marines are a
fine set of boys, who have been obliged to sacrifice their
home life and family connections as well as making oth
er sacrifices in order to be prepared to protect the peace
of the nation, and are not here of their own choosing.
Os course, to sponsor Pal’s Day entails an expenditure
of money so that Town Council appropriated S3OO for the
purpose. The celebration will not be so elaborate, hut
light refreshments will be served and music provided for
a dance, together with some sort of program so that those
attending may become better acquainted.
There may be some criticism for spending S3OO for
this purpose, but The Herald ventures the guess that if
word was received that the base is again to be closed,
there would be no hesitancy whatsoever in spending S3OO
in an effort to keep it open. It is a splendid gesture of
goodwill and friendship, so that many Edenton people
should attend and help to entertain the Marines.
Support The Aces
With luck on their side, Edenton’s Aces won the op
portunity to represent the Albemarle Conference in the
State Class A football championship race and will meet
Scotland Neck on Hicks Field Friday night in the first
of the elimination games.
The Aces and their coaches, William Billings and Alton
Brooks, are to be complimented on rounding out the best
football machine Edenton has had in many years and, of
course, The Herald hopes they can overcome all compe
tition and win the State championship, as was the case
in 1934, when with only two or three reserves, they went
through the season and championship race without a
single defeat and in a stronger conference.
The game with Scotland Neck should be well attended,
for by attendance the athletic program will be benefitted
financially. The gate receipts will be split between Eden
ton and Scotland: Neck, although the expense: of the visit
ors coming to Edenton must be home by the Aces’ take.
So, the more people who attend the game; the more will
be realized by the local school for its athletic program.
Scotland Neck will come to Edenton with an undefeat
ed season’s record, so that a hard-fought game is in
prospect. So make your plans to attend Friday night,
thus enjoying a good game of football and at the same
time helping to swell a lean athletic fund.

I Yours truly on Saturday received a check for $lO from
The Associated Press which represented a prize for sub-
I mitting first complete county returns in last week’s gen
' eral election. The check was made out to me, but if
! distributed among all who contributed to the early re
j port, each would get about a thin dime. For example,
• there’s Eddie Spires who opened his office to get the
• returns. Then there’s the group who picked out and as
| sorted the ballots, and those who called out and tabu
! lated the vote. And not to be forgotten are the long
j distance telephone operators who lost no time in getting
I calls through to Raleigh. Shucks, there’s so bloomin’
I many who are entitled to a slice of the ten bucks—l’ll
! keep it myself.
Edenton’s Aces were lucky Monday night when their
name was drawn from three, Edenton, Ahoskie and Ply
mouth, placed in a hat to decide the Albemarle Con
ference football champions for 1954. They will play
Scotland Neck on Hicks Field Friday night in the first
i of the elimination games for the State Championship.
I Here's hoping they will be as lucky in playing their op

• One of Judge Marvin Wilson’s hobbies is homing pig-
I eons and oh Saturday he took about 60 of 'em to Chapel
i Hill and turned them loose. He has tried out some of
the pigeons before which have returned home from dis
tances not quite as far and some in the group have never
been tried. But Judge Wilson said he’s trying out the
whole works so that if and when they do return home
they’ll be stumped down good.
Wore 1 a girl and young enough to participate in a
| beauty contest or a contest to decide a King and Queen,
j r believe I’d insist on having the contest held before it’s
i cold. Diked out in long underwear, wearing my heavy
I.fishing shoes and an overcoat, here’s one who had the
shivers at the football game Friday night. The con
testants in the King and Queen contest, as well as the
majorettes, scantily dressed, must have had a double
dose of the shivers. But then, maybe their blood is thin- I
ner and runs faster to keep ’em a bit warmer. Then,
too, maybe some of the reason for my shaking was the |
tenseness of the game, for up until the last minute it ,
appeared as though it was anybody’s game. Excitement .!
and cold weather mixed together is enough to make any, !
Last week when the youngsters were carrying on their
trick or treat practices, a few called at my house. When
told we were “fresh out” of things to give, one of the
little boys piped out “Ain’t you even got an old worn-out
Chowan Herald?” It so happened that not even a copy
of the paper was on hand, so the kids went away empty
handed and without even playing a trick.

The Penelope Barker Association has adopted a rather
unique way of raising money. Members plan to get up
a community birthday calendar which will list birth dates
of residents as well as dates of various club meetings
and other community events. More will be said about
the scheme next week.
In The Herald office hangs the picture of the Gay
Philosopher and his son, but the other day a fellow asked
why 1 haven’t Marilyn Monroe’s picture stuck up some
where. Well, it might be in one of my desk drawers—or
maybe on top of the desk. Who knows what’s on my
At the Methodist Church next Sunday an offering will
be taken in response to the Bishop’s appeal for funds |
to rebuild churches in Korea. The new pastor, the Rev.
J. E. Richardson (I remember his initials for they’re the
same as mine) has on hand small cloth bags, saying the
Koreans bring bags of rice to church for tithes and offer
ings. Well, an offering is needed, hut Preacher Richard
son doesn’t want rice in the bags—he wants hard cash.
With deer season now open, T understand quite a few
Edenton sportsmen have gone hunting for the fleet-foot

Somewhat like I do quite frequently—go fishing but just
