Washington The Senate has
"been discussing the civil rights
bill reported last week from the
Judiciary Committee. Fortunate
ly the bill passed by the House
was referred to our Committee
where substantial amendments
Du* Process of Law—l am!
glad that one of the principles'
laid down in the Constitution
of the United States is the
principle which is found in the
No person shall be deprived
of life, liberty, or property
without due process of law.
That is the constitutional pro-1
rn which is binding upon
Federal Government and is
bidding on Congress when Con
gress undertakes to exercise the
legislative power of the Fed
eral Government. ■ >
Let us see what is meant by
the expression “due process of
law,” which the Fifth Amend
ment requires the Federal Gov
ernment and Congress. • when
Congress is exercising the legis
lative power of the Federal Gov
ernment, to observe in respect
to all persons.
The essential elements of due
process of law are notice and
an opportunity to be heard and
to defend in an orderly proceed
ing adapted to the nature of the
case before a tribunal having
jurisdiction of the case.
Voting Referees During the
course of the debate last weekj
I spoke at length in the Senate
against the star ehamlter pro
ceedings for referees as provid
ed for in the original bill.
- In so far as the proceeding
itefore a voting referee is con
cerned, we have a very peculiar
provision. There are these
stages in 4he proceedings before
Fir?t, a voter of the race oft
those who have been found to I
be discriminated against, but I
who has not been discriminated J
against himself because of his
race or color, must make an
application to the referee. .
Second, the referee must con

; tion. However, under the terms
; of the original bill this hearing
is to be ex parte.
Third, after the referee has
1 conducted this ex parte pro
ceeding, he makes a report to
; . the court, which report is in
I effect the judgment of the
* fourth, the court thereupon
issues a notice to show cause
to the State official, which no
tice to show cause for the first |
lime acquaints U.e State official 1
with the judgment of the ref-1
Fifth, the State official is then i
permitted file exceptions to |
the referee's report and have a I
hearings before a judge, unless (
the judge takes the peculiar ac
tion which is authorized by this
provision of the bill:
The issues of fact and law
raised by such exceptions
shall be determined by the
court or, if the due and
speedy administration of jus
tice requires, they may be
referred to the voting ref
eree to determine in accord
ance with procedures pre
scribed b ythe court
Under that provision of the
bill it is quite possible that the
Slate official _ never does have
a hearing before the judge.
This is true because this pro
vision of the bill authorizes the
judge to send the matter baek
to the referee and to let the
referee pass on the question of
whether he, the referee, has)
comniitleced an error of law. I
would dislike to have to try a|
case before a man who had al-1
ready decided the ease, when j
the only chance I would have j
of winning the ease would be!
i the finding by that man that he |
had made a mistake when he :
tried the case in the first place.
Yet that is the procedure that
j the civil rights bill provides.

Old Cfc>unfy Records
Belong To State
Continued from Page 1. Section l
oration and in time many of
’the old records will be irretrie-|
'vably lost. The repair and
proper arrangement, filing, cata
loging and preservation of these
records require special equip
ment, facilities and trained per
sonnel, all of which are avail
able in the department.
Some question has arisen as
to whether the department will
reproduce any of the records
which may be transferred, and
. furnish the county with copies.
'According to Mr. Crittendon, it
is not planned to microfilm any
loose papers except marriage
j bonds and licenses. He stated,
j however, that the department
I can reproduce or microfilm a
reasonable number of Chowan
County papers after they have
j been laminated and properly ar
j ranged. He said the department
i will be glad to furnish, without
I cost, microfilm., copies of bound
volumes and papers of most vi
tal interest and value to the
county. With a “reader,” Mr.
Crittendon said, “you will find
the use of microfilm easy and
convenient. Furthermore micro
film requires little storage space
and may be removed from the
(Court House to the library or
I elsewhere at the discretion of
county officials. On the other
hand, the removal of original
records from the office of the
custodian concerned is prohibit
ed by law, except in case of
transfer, to the State Archives.
Photostatic copies are expensive
and, especially in the, case of
old papers, not very satisfac
• Mr. Crittendon in his letter al
jso had this to say: “As you
I know, space is at a premium
in the offices of your Clerk of
■ Superior Court and the Register
of Deeds, and it is becoming
difficult to find storage space
I for records in current use. If
| the retention and disposal sched-:
\ tiles recommended in the Coun- j

Going to China when World j
War II was imminent, he spent*
most of the war years doing J
evangelistic work in Kweilin, in |
Southeastern China. In 1945!
the board elected him its sec- •
retary for the Orient, and he j
served in that capacity until as
sum mg his present responsibili
ties in January, 1954.
A large number of Chowan
Association young people will be
featured on the program, in
cluding special music by the
Concord Choir of the Edenton
Baptist Church and ia youth sex
tet from the Ramoth Gilead
Presiding during the program
will be the Rev. Lamar Sentell,
Associational T. U. director.
Mr. Sentell has' written to the
pastors and several other lead
ers in each of the Chowan
churches, suggesting a minimum
attendance goal and requesting
help in informing, encouraging
and seeing that all of the young
people have transportation for
Youth Night. Because of limit
ed capacity and because it is
“Youth Night,” it is requested
that the ages be kept between
19-24, plus any adult sponsors
bringing young people.
It is felt by many that the

milestone in the ministry to
