Edenton The Loser
Harry Smith, Jr., on Monday tendered his
resignation as executive vice president of the
Edenton Chamber of Commerce, a move
which has caused no little concern among the
board of directors. Mr. Smith was the man
behind the gun in Chamber of Commerce ac
tivities and while he lias been in harness only
about 2Vi years, his leadership and efforts
have resulted in the best Chamber of Com
merce Edenton has ever had. He is a valu
able asset not only to the Edenton organiza
tion, but the town as a whole, so that in his
leaving a void will be caused which will be
extremely difficult to fill. Edenton will defi
nitely be the loser in lasing Mr. Smith.
Mr. Smith has accepted the position as
executive secretary of the American Power
Boat Association, an appreciable promotion
compared with his position in Edenton. Some
idea of his qualifications is reflected irt the
fact that he was chosen from about 80 can
didates from all parts of the country. He
will report for his new duties in Detroit,
Mich., on May 23.
Though in Edenton only a little over two
years, Mr. Smith’s leadership and influence
has permeated the community in various ways,
so that in his leaving Edenton and in fact
this entire section will be the loser. The
Smiths have been high calibre citizens and
haw won a host of friends, so that it is not
surprising for them to feel rather reluctant
and sense some degree of sorrow to leave
Edenton. The feeling is mutual, for a host
of Edenton friends regret to the fullest the
approaching departure of this fine and valu
Though Mr. Smith will leaw in a short
time, he has a host of friertds in Edentdh
who wish him much success in his new and
larger field of activities, going from a com
munity to a national level of endeavor. The
Herald joins his many friends in wishing for
him the best of luck and success in his new
undertaking, and with the ability he has
shown during his brief sojourn in Edenton
there is little doubt but that he will meet
Hard To/ Understand
Saturday morning's horrible automobile ac
cident once again reflected the fact that where
there is life there is death. Two very attrac
tive and fine young ladies lost their lives not
long after they attended and enjoyed one of
the highlights of a high school student’s school
career —the Junior-Senior Prom.
Just why such calamities occur is hard for
a human being to understand, for these two
young ladies were full of life, they were
splendid students, taking part in many of
their school’s activities and had their life be
But to understand the reason for such sud
den and tragic deaths only points Out the
weakness and insignificance of man. There
is a Power who has a reitsun, and the com-,
sorting thing about it all is that we are tolcf
that “all things work out for gdbd to those
who low the Lord.”
Many of us are obliged to face ordeals
which seem almost too great to bear, but
there is reason to bdievC that good of SOlhe
kind will emerge frotn gfeat thlfts of sorrow.
No matter how grrift oitt trOuMe Os Misfor

In time of great sorrow, efforts of human
beings to lighten the WM is i source of gfeit
satisfaction, but the Ming hand of time fc

■J4eard & Seen
—I ■ —I
Ohte of the most horrible accidents in recent
years occurred early Saturday morning when
two attractive Hertford girls lost their lives
in an automobile wreck and two young men
miraculously escaped with their lives. It was
a dreadful shock to the entire Albemarle area,
and one who was not the least affected was
the Missus, who would have liked to write
a paragraph for this column this week. Both
of the young ladies were frequent visitors in
the Bufflap household, but one especially,
Julie Lane, was almost like one of the.family.
She was the sweetheart of Robert White, son
of the Missus, and the couple hhd made plans
to be married in August of 1961. The Missus
was very fond of Julie and by her associa
tion with her over a period of four or five
years feels that her life has been greatly en
riched as the result of the sterling qualities
and the affectionate and pleasant personality
of this fine young lady. What was to become
an even closer association with Julie was sud
denly shattered early Saturday morning, but
the memory of her will be cherished through
out the years as one of the most delightful
girls with whom she has come in contact.
The Missus, too, feels that her son was spar
ed by a kind Providence, for which she will
ever be grateful. She, therefore, extends her
sympathy to the two families who lost their
beloved daughters, as well as the family of
Jerry Taylor, the other young man who was
phlhfully injured but whose life was spared.
The same goes for yours truly, for the acci
dent brings vividly to mind an experience on
July 14, 1945, when my family went through
a similar ordeal as in the matter of a few
minutes the lives were snuffed out of a son
and grandson in a drowning accident. Break
ing of family ties so suddenly, tragically and
unexpected is a terrible shock, but there is
some degree of consolation in the fact that
the Almighty will not allow more sorrow than
one can bear and such calamities can never
be forgotten. Kind deeds, words of sympa
thy, cards and letters, help to relieve sorrow,
but it is time alone that will gradually soothe
the wound, and as we travel toward the end
of our way, life becomes somewhat sweeter
in the thought of meeting again our loved
ones in a land where sorrow and pain are un
Last week I mentioned only a few places
of beauty in Edenton in connection with
flowers and gardens. But Mrs. Willie Saun
ders called on the phone to remind me that I
missed at least one other beautiful place—the
Rocky Hock Church grounds. I’ve not seen
it, and I’m sure I failed to mention quite
a few other places in Edenton and Chowan I

If the County Commissioners use good
judgment, they’ll finish up their business on

missioners have attended these affairs before
