Almighty God, raise us from the dea*h of sin
unto a life of righteousness that we may be
found acceptable in Thy sight.
Duty To Vote
Once again, next Saturday. May 28. citi
zen? will have . the opportunity to cast their j
□allots for public officials. Workers in this
area, and the same may be said about the
state a? a whole, are and have been for some
time working feverishly in the interest of
some particular candidate. With the appar
ent interest in the election and large follow
ing of various candidates, the election should
result in a large vote.
Too often, however, a voter takes the at
titude of “What Can I Do? How I feel does
not make any difference and my vote will
not Have any eftect on the result.’’ How
wrong is this attitude. Too often only a com
paratively few take the time to vote, thus
exposing us more or less not to the rule
by majority, but to rule by minority.
Each and every one of us has not only an
opportunity but rather a duty to cast a vote
for public officials. Each citizen has a wea
pon which can be used to elect or defeat a
candidate to serve the public—a vote. This
privilege should be used more generally in
electing to office the persons deemed best
qualified to serve. All too often some peo
ple gripe and many of this number do not
care enough to go to the trouble to wend their
way to the polling places in order to cast a
ballot. Every voter should be willing to be
bothered to take the time to mark a ballot '
whenever the opportunity comes around.
It is hoped Chowan County voters will turn
out en masse next Saturday to take part in
electing public officials. Polls will be open
from 6:30 A. M„ to 6:30 P. M„ so that there
should be very little excuse on the part of
gny voter that he or she did not have the
time to cast a ballot in the selection of those
who are to serve the people as a whole.
Buy A Poppy
Next Saturday,. May 28. will be Poppy
Day. sponsored by the American Legion Au
xiliary. Those who wear a poppy on that
day will honor the more than half million
Americans who died and the nearly one mil
lion wounded during the past three wars.
The poppy became the memorial flower of
the American Legion about 40 years ago. It
is a replica of the wild European poppy
which bloomed aindist the devastation of
World War I battlegrounds, appearing along
the trenches and in the cemeteries and is
well remembered by soldiers who returned
from Europe in 1918.
Proceeds from the sale of poppies will go j
to disabled veterans or their families, so that
those who buy and wear a poppy will not
only be helping veterans, but at the same time
will be paying tribute to those who fought,
many of whom paid the supreme sacrifice,
for perpetuating the American way of life.
Where Crime Doesn’t Pay
Banditry can be controlled—by aggressive,
determined cooperation between the law en
forcement authorities and interested enter
If you doubt that,, a remarkable record
that has been set in Philadelphia may change
Eleven years ago a team of bandits made
a career of holding up. the managers of a
chain system. American Stores. They pulled
17 jobs in a row. In the last, a police officer
was shot and killed.
That shot marked the beginning of a non
stop counter-offensive by the store organiza
tion and local law enforcement bodies, nota
bly the Philadelphia Police Department.
Since the offensive started, there have been
94 holdups—and every participant, save for
two murder defendants yet to be tried, has
been sentenced to prison! There hasn't been
a single acquittal. The prison terms meted
out amounted to a total minimum of 361
years and three months and to a total maxi
mum of 996 years and 11 months.
As a result of that record, there have been
bo holdups in the past two years. The crooks
hatte learned that, in this case, crime doesn't
pay. And what- has been accomplished in
Philadelphia cm be duplicated everywhere
through the same hind of cooperation.
IJJedrJ Qr /w»
Edenton came pretty close to losing two
very valuable men, so that it ts iu„vH.«ugin
to learn that Coach Bill Billings and Der .u
Bray arc scheduled to remain in Eu-a
where their wholesome influent, nas hau
will continue to play a very i j ortant pa»
with our young people. Goldsboro school o.
ficials tried their darndcst to .-c ure Billing
to coach the AAAA conference football team
The coach at one stage of negotiations had
about decided to leave Edenton and go te.
Goldsboro, but following several conferences
he finally decided to remain. That his respec
and influence is appreciated by high schoo
boys in particular is reflected in what John
Mitchencr, a student at the University of
North Carolina, had to say in a letter ti
his parents. Said John: "I reckon weYt
all known all along that sooner or later son*
larger school would seek Mr, Billings' ser
vices. 1 do hope he will remain in Eden
ton because he has meant a lot to all of ü
boys who have played with and tor him
Among other things, he made athletics a lessor
in life and tor this I am grateful. Thus it i
because he has meant so much to me that I
hope he'll stav so that other boys may shan
Then one of the boys at school, when in
formed that the coach planned to leave Eden
ton said. “Coach, if it would do any good. Ft
get down on my knees and beg you to stay.'
Another instance of how much the boys thin!
of Coach Billings happened when Rober
White was injured in an automobile wreck
a few weeks ago. When taken to the hospita
the first person the boy asked to see wa-
Coach Billings. And so it goes. Young peopk
have been made better by their association
with Mr. Billings, so that by and large a>
of ’em, as well as Edenton citizens as a whole
are glad that the coach will be around thi
neck of the woods tor at least another foot
ball season. Along a different avenue, thougl
just as important, is Derwood Bray’s influ
ence with young people who play in the band
Derwood tendered his resignation, but late
withdrew it. so that he'll also be around so
a while. Most of the youngsters who hav<
come under the influence of Mr. Bray wen
very downcast when they learned he intende
to leave and a lot of ’em. as well as parents
had something to do with his decision t<
withdraw his resignation. Derwood. too. ha
had a very wholesome influence among youn;
people which will stand them in good steal
in the years that lie ahead. Here's one who
glad that both these fellows will remain ii
Edenton. for with them here were assure*
of a good band, a good football team ami .
wholesome influence among our young people
Friends of various candidates are working
hard tor their favorites and quite a few pre
dictions have been made that this or that
candidate will be the winner. However, a
very important part of an election is tin
counting oi votes, so we're waiting until this
is done before we say who the winners are.
State Highway Patrolmen are cracking
down on automobile drivers who have n
driver s licenses or licenses have expired. Fre
quent checks are being made, so that an;
automobile driver who wants to keep from,
a peck of trouble better see to it that his
driving license is in proper shape.
Some people have been bothered with mos
quitoes so tar this summer. “One thing about
it. one fellow told me. “is that they are so
big this year that a fellow can feel ’em when
One report has it that the Harvey Point
base is out. then another report comes out
that ii will be utilized for some government
purpose. With the situation as it is with
Russia and Cuba, it seems that Uncle Sam
should keep his mitts on it. for it is alto
gether possible that it might be neeessarv to
use the base for some purpose which might
not be so pleasant.
Mrs. E. H. Arnett, a Herald subscriber who
lives in Shelbvville. Indiana, recently missed
her paper and had this to say: “I didn't
get the May sth issue and do hope it’ll show
up. I do miss the paper when it does not ar
rive because I get most of my news from it.
I like to read it as soon as it comes in to
find out the news. Since kinfolk don't write
much any more. I even learn something about
them at times. Please keep The Herald com
ing. And it will, for Airs. Arnett enclosed
a check for a year's renewal.
The Herald has been having some extra
pages lately due primarily to political adver
tising. However, Saturday will be the day
of decision when voters will say who is anil
who is not elected. It’s been a hard grind,
so if 1 have enough strength left 111 be
going to the polls to cast my ballot. Don’t
forget to vote. Vote for whom you. please,
out please vote. .. .. „
