Edenton’s Acelets stopped
Bunbury 60-42 for their eleventh
straight victory Friday night,'
and the Aces came through with
a 66-39 rout in the John A. I
Holmes High School gym.
The game with Sunbury was
secured when Windsor, who had

drew because of the Bertie
County Class A championship
The two Ellenton squads com
piled their highest point totals
of the year in gaining the wins.
The Acelets’ record was left at
12-2. while the Aces racked up
their ninth win against seven
The Acelets had little trouble
in their contest, moving out in
front 16-6 at the first quarter
and 35*14 at the half. The third
and fourth periods were not
much different as the Edenton
reserves polished off the vic

I frankly Speaking |
By Frau Huberts
First thing I want to do is say
thanks. Thanks to one Miss
Hailey of Edenton for her kind
words over the phone regarding
our new music policy; thanks to
Mrs. W. B. Chesson of Roper ,
for a very wonderful letter.
Human nature being what it is,
criticism always seems to come
quicker than praise. For that
reason, we at WCDJ are even
more grateful to the many folks
who’ve commented favorably on
our new music policy. We’ve
been reviving the big band
sound; spotlighting top jazz mu
sicians; quality novelties; sea- i
turing the best vocalists; offer
ing the cream of the crop from
Broadway and Hollywood. Any
way, glad the large majority of
our listeners approve and this is
byway of a public thank-you i
for your acceptance. On the '
subject of radio, we often re- !
ceive audition taper from all
over the country from as
piring announcers. We also get
many from many of the radio
schools. Well, about two weeks
ago wp received some auditions

•each. Cuthreil paced Sunbury
i with 22 markers, which proved
to be the high for the night.
The Aces turned ice cold in
the opening minutes and fell
behind 19-10 after the first
quarter. At this point Johnny
Phillips and Bryant Griffin
teamed up to lead a 23-point
second period storm that put the
locals out m front 33-27 at in
The Aces made a runaway out
of the contest in the third quar
ter, getting 22 points to the
visitors’ 7. The Edenton re
serves played the whole fourth
Fred Britton took honors for
the Aces, bagging 15 points.
Jerry Tolley and Phillips were
close behind with 14 each, and
Griffin also hit in double fig
ures with 11. Herbert Adams
1 got 6 and Ray Ward and Bill
Goodwin chipped in with 3 each.
I Hoflcr had 14 for Sunbury.
I from people who are graduates
lof a Chicago radio school. This
| school was bragging about how
good they were. They were*
bragging about Tom Bosley be
ing a graduate of their school.
Mr. Bosley is Broadway's big
gest new star, playing the lead
sole in the production of "Fi
orello.” Anyway, about a week
after receiving that literature
j from that particliar school, I was
; reading an intercity on Tom
Bosley, who mentioned that he
went to a radio school in Chi
cago, but they were just after
his money, and taught him noth
ing. This is true in manv cases.
Radio schools are a b,g busi
ness nowadays, but if theri's an,
aspiring radio or television man*’
or woman in the crowd, be sure
jto check and double-check the
•school you go to. Still on the
i subject, hope you get Id hear

' just happen to be in a position
of questionable authority. I’m I
definitely not spcakmg of my,
own situation in Edenton, as the
reverse is true. At WCD3 I’ve!
always been given a chance with,
my ideas and thoughts, and
working for and with Dick
Schuman has been one of the I
most pleasant things that’s hap

The sit-down strikes continue.
In southern North Carolina a
Negro minister chided the Ne
groes taking part in the demon
strations, while a white minister
praised the demonstrators. That
leads us, quite naturally, into
the closing thought. It’s Psalm
133-1: “Behold, how good and
how pleasant it is for brethren
to dwell together in unity.”
Man’s God-given ability to
think and act rightly will be
emphasized Sunday at Christian
Scriptural readings in the Les
son-Sermon entitled “Mind” will
include these verses from Pro
verbs (16:1, 3): “The prepara
tions of the heart in man, and
the answer of the tongue, is
from the Lord . . . Commit thy I
.vorks unto the Lord, and thy'
i thoughts shall be established.” I
Correlative citations to be ’
rqdd from “Science and Health
with Key to the Scriptures” by
Mary Baker Eddy include the
following: “The human capaci
ties are enlarged and perfected
in proportion as humanity gains
the true conception of man and
The Golden Text is from Ro
mans (12:2): “Be not conform
ed to this world: but be ye
transformed by the renewing of
your mind, that ye may prove
what is that good, and accept
able, and perfect, will of God.”
