•In Memory Os '
Rev. L. G. Nichols
"Plans have been completed for
; inverting of a tomb to the mem
sify of the late L. G. Nichols, who
was pastor of Providence Baptist
Qburch from 1930 to 1946, com
ing to Edenton from the Peoples
Baptist Church in Portsmouth,
iff 'The local church was lacking in
Interest and work upon his arriv
al, caused in part by the econom
ic depression, but he applied the
Old truths which had been preach
ed with great success by able pas
tors preceding him, so that the
community and the church was
uplifted during his ministry.
The unveiling will take place
at Vine Oak Cemetery Friday
(Memorial Day) at 3 P. M. The
progrhm will be under the direc
tion off Mrs. Ruth H. Frinks. Mu
sic wsl be under the direction of
Mrs. iElizabeth Barnes. The
speaker for the occasion will be
the Rtv. S. N. Griffith. Mrs. F.
M. Blapnt, as well as a few oth
ers who knew him intimately' 1 Will

were very few and at times it
was necessary to drive 70 miles
between stops. Most of you
have children and you think you
have trouble traveling with them
“In spite of all this, a small
group of men were able to en
vision a great future in auto
motive travel, and the Ocean
Highway Association had its in
ception as Myrtle Beach. Of
ficers were elected, a budget, of
$7,500 was adopted and apprexi-
Eately 50 sponsors made upr*the
sociation that first year.
“Now the Ocean Highway has
•en shortened to 998 miles of
modem, well paved, restful
Highways from the pines to the
balms. The time for crossing
the Chesapeake Bay by ferry
• v has been shortened and a bridge
tunnel crossing is in the ad
vanced engineering stages.
'“Now there are more than SSO

ful—hotels, motels, restaurants,
service stations, and plenty of
“The weather being as cold as
it -was in Florida last winter,
there are those of you who
plight say that there are too

and I have no control over the
weather, but never get the idea

j “From the very beginning of
the association there has been a
recognized need for outstanding
promotion through newspapers,
outdoor advertising and an at- <
tractive map folder. As traffic I
increases because of this promo
nfan, efforts are made through
the various state highway com
missions for improved roads.
The officers and staff of the as
sociation have always dedicated
themselves to the best interest

of the membership and the
fruits of their labor can be seen
\in the millions of dollars invest
ed in tourist accommodations
along this safe route.
“No, it didn’t just happen.
The members were cast in star
roles, too, but many of us be
come complacent in our attitude
regarding the amount of work
necessary for the members to
perform in order for the Ocean
Highway to continue its traffic
growth. You may feel that the
completion of the bridge-tunnel
across Chesapeake Bay will
bring more traffic than can be
accommodated by present facili
ties along the Ocean Highway.
I will agree—if proper promo
tion is given to the advantages
of traveling she Ocean Highway.
Otherwise you can expect this:
Southbound traffic from the
bridge-tunnel will go in 16 dif
ferent directions and north
bound traffic from Florida will
hit or miss - * the bridge-tunnel
from 16 different directions.
“The " bridge-tunnel is the
greatest opportunity "the mem
bers of the association have had
to meet a challenge. A chal
lenge to be a part of a bigger,
stronger and better Ocean High
way Association. Don’t think in
I terms of your individual prob
lems, but in terms of an over
all program with long range
“During the coming year your
officers and staff will make a
concerted effort to secure more
members in the Ocean Highway
Association. Last year Lloyd
Macklen requested each of us
to secure an additional new
member. Some us did just that,
some did more, others did noth
ing. May I ask you again to
do that same thing? That’s not
asking too much, is it? I’ll
thank you from the bottom of
“You do that and I’ll promise
you that this year we will have
even more promotion through
newspapers and outdoor adver
tising, and your association will
grow bigger, stronger and bet
ter through moral and financial
support from all sources.”

I you go too far with them, you
may be building up big trouble
[ for yourself.
Forcing yourself to “take it on
. the chin” js no way to solve a
1 painful problem. Actually it’s a
j form of self-punishment. Some-
I times it's better to be an escap
il ist for awhile. Note “for awhile”.
Lose yourself in a movie or a
book or a game, or a brief trip
for a change of scene. Then you
can come back to your problem
and deal with it in better condi
tion emotionally and intellectual
: ly ’
If you’re boiling internally with
anger, physical activity is a good
j escape and relief for tension.
Pitch into something strenuous
like gardening or tennis or win
dow washing or wood chopping.
! Work the anger out of your sys
' tern and you’ll be better prepared
’ to handle your problem intelli
Frequently it helps to confide
1 your problem to some level-head
ed person you can trust: husband
or wife, father or mother, clergy
man, family doctor or teacher.
Talking things out helps relieve
strain and often helps you see
your troubles in a clearer light.
You might even get help toward
a solution. There’s no virtue in
shutting yourself off from help
Everybody has problems. Ev
| erybody gets anxious and tense
j occasionally. This is normal.
! The time to worry is when emo
tional upsets are frequent and se
| vere and don’t wear off. A little
i common-sense escapism can help
maintain good mental health.
