i Senator John Kennedy, who won a land
slide Democratic nomination for President of
the United States at the Democratic National
Convention in Los Angeles, is as fully awgre
as many Democrats that his Roman Catholic
religion will serve as a handicap for his elec
tion in the November general election. In
fact he himself says he is 'fully aware of the
fact that the Democratic party, by nominat
ing someone of any faith, has taken on what

The Herald respects the religion of every
individual, but adheres to the Constitution of
the United States that there should be com
plete separation of church and state. The
President of the United States should not owe
his first allegiance to a foreign power but
rather be in position to render free and fair
judgment in upholding the Constitution.
Senator Kennedy made the statement that
he will uphold the Constitution and his oath
of office and that he will reject any kind
of religious pressure or obligation that might
directly or indirectly interfere with his con
duct of the presidency in the national inter
est.* He emphatically stated that his religious
affiliation is irrelevant, and that his decisions

turn. for the Edenton Woman’s Club. The
club,' the way I understand, owns three co
lonial costumes but now the ladies have only
two. They are of the opinion that the other
ope was loaned for some occasion and has not
been returned. Here’s hoping that whoever
has the costume will return it, so that the
dub’s “wardrobe’’ will be complete. Phone
2624 and the ladies will be happy. Then I’ve
beep told there are only four colonial- cos
fumes now in Edenton, the three belonging
so the Woman’s Club and one owned by Mrs.
Robert Boyce. But it won’t be for long un
til there should be a back log of colonial cos
tumes. It is my understanding that the Wo
man’s Club plans to secure IS of the costumes
and" the Edenton Tea Party Chapter of the
DAR is also planning to get 15. It is plan
ned to use a lot of colonial costumes in the
promotional film of Edenton and Chowan
County soon to be made and I’m told there'll
be a lot of the costumes used when the Wo
man’s Club stages its pilgrimage next year,
the Woman’s Club would like to get
the rose costume which is now missing.
On the front page is a picture of a crow
gun being used on Chowan County farms to
scare off crows and other pests which damage
crops. There’s one not far from the city
limits, which went off when a woman was
driving near Leary Bros. Storage Company.
Just like I did a few weeks ago, she thought
a tire had blown out so, of course she crawl
ed out of her car to take a look. She was
relieved when she found no flat tire, and drove
off probably wondering what in the dickens
While eating breakfast at a local restaurant
the other morning a group of tourists dropped
ip and I easily overheard part of the conver
sation. One said, “This is a beautiful and
clean-looking town. I wonder what the pop
ulation is.’’ Another in the party replied,
“Oh, it’s just a small place, probably 4.000 or
5,000.’’ But then a third one in the party
chimed in. “Well, I don’t know how big the
place is, but it r s really a football town.’’ Well,
he was about right, but a lot of us remember
when Edenton was just as much a baseball
town. Time was that when a baseball game
was on tap it was virtually a holiday so far
as down town business was concerned. Yeah,
and some of us r easily remember when half
dozen or so games of checkers were in pro
gress at almost any time of the day. Times
In the mail this week was a brief letter
from Mrs. Helen Pressgrove in which was
enclosed a check for a year’s subscription to
The Herald. Mrs. Pressgrove lives in Van
Nuys, California and had this, in part, to say:
“I hope this check will bring me up to date
on the Herald. I look forward to receiving it
each Monday and would be lost without the
news from around there.”
Clyde Slade, one of The Herald’s crew,
has been doing some work at imy house such
as cutting hedges and pulling grass from
around flowers and evergreens. However,
Clyde has run up against two problems. In
the first place a gang of wasps’inhabited the 1
hedge, so that he had to arm himself with a
lighted rag on a stick and a sprayer, which
enabled him to come out the victor. But
while pulling grass he came upon a few small
garden snakes which almost caused him to
give up the job. Clyde is scared of a snake
period, even if it is no longer thah a fishing
worm. In fact, he says he’s seated of four
kinds of snakes—big ones, little ones, live
ones and dead ones.
Thank goodness, not all semblance of ap
preciation has passed away. The other day
Nathan Dail, one of Edenton’s rural mail car
riers, had an experience which proved that
some people are still very appreciative. While
on his mail route, Nathan came upon Mrs.
Eunice Lipham who had an automobile acci
dent on the highway in the Cowpen Neck
section. He rendered what assistance he
could and was thanked by Mrs. Lipham as he
went about his duty of delivering mail. After
thf accident Airs. Lipham entered Chowan
Hospital for examination and while there she
wrote a note of thanks and sent it to the
mail carrier. To say the least, Nathan was
very much impressed with the note, for in
nine cases out of ten, the “thank you” at the
scene of the-accident would have been enough
fdr the appreciation for what Nathan had
done.; - ■•„••■-■•■• ,<y
