THURSDAY. OCTOBER 6, 1960.
if Whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile,
go with him twain. —Matthew 5:41.
OUR SAVIOUR INVITED us weary and heavy
laden, to come to him for rest, he was not then
thinking of the easy burden of a light load, but
of a burden made easy through new-found
strength trom him.
Merciful Father, grant us Thy grace that our
lives mav be expended by Thee and for others.
Important To Parents
An important meeting is scheduled to be held
at the Scout Cabin Monday night, October /0,
at 7:30 o’clock. At that time the annual
Scout roundup meeting will be held, upon which
a great deal will depend the program oi Scorn
ing in Edenton.
Especially important it is that parents of Boy
Scout age attend this meeting, for while some
'boys easily acclimate themselves to the Scout
ing program, there are others who need the en
couragement and prodding on the part of par
ents in order to become vitally interested in this
great youth organization.
Scouting in Edenton has had its ups and downs.
• At times the interest and activity of the boys
has been at a high pitch and then at other time?
interest has lagged so that few boys had mucb
of a desire to carry on.
Scoutmasters contribute of their time and ef
forts to develop an active and worthwhile Boy
Scout troop, but all of the time and effort goes
for practically naught if not enough boys are
members and become interested in Scout activi
Hoys between the ages of 11 and 14 are eligi
ble to become Scouts and this is the age when
Scout training can become ar. important factor
in the future life of a boy. His inclinations can
be directed to worthwhile activities and prin
ciples which will stand him in good stead in
later years as he grows into manhood. Many
of the lessons learned by Scouting never leave
a boy and to be sure they have the effect pre
venting a boy from going astray.
With this in mind, parents of boys of Scout
age are especially urged to attend Monday
night’s meeting in order to get Scouting off tc
a good start. Jasper Hassell is present Scout
master and no little encouragement is engender
ed in Scouting with the announcement that Jack
Habit, one of Edenton’s most active and success
ful Scoutmasters, will act as assistant Scout
The Edenton Boy Scout troop has been spon
sored by the Edenton Rotary Club for 25 years
and Rotarians. too, are hopeful that all boys of
*Boy Scout age, as well as their parents, will at
tend the roundup meeting Monday night.
Fire Prevention Week
Though eflorts should be directed to the pre
vention of fire every day in the year, the week
of October 9-15 has been proclaimed as Fire
Prevention Week throughout the nation.
In Edenton the week will be celebrated by a
parade which will be held Monday afternoon at
3:30 o’clock. In the parade will be the John
A. Holmes High School and. Edenton’s fire fight
ing equipment and the equipment used by Cho
wan County’s forest ranger.
. Because of carelessness or ignorance of fire
safety facts of life, one American home is burn
ed or damaged by fire every two minutes.
Known facts for 1959 record 11,300 deaths from
fire and a total of 906,000 fires in the United
With these facts in mind, we should not only
cooperate with Fire Prevention Week, but we
should observe every week as Fire Prevention
Socking The Motorist
Just about every motorist, at one time or an
other, kicks about the “high price of gasoline”.
What he should be kicking about is the "high
price of gasoline taxes”.
Today—with the allegedly “temporary” fourth
cent that was added to the federal gas tax last
October —the combined national average of fed
eral and state taxes is more than 10 cents a
’ ; This means that the taxes now average, on a
!nationwide basis, 48 per cent of the retail price
,of regular grade gas, 62 per cent of the whole
'saSe price, and 85 per cent of the refinery price.
fT-axes actually amount to more than half of the
price of the fuel in 20 states, and in some i
'areas equal the the refinery price. Such luxur
ies as fur coats and jewelry carry far smaller |
excise taxes and no other necessity is compara
Moreover, here is a tax which is demonstrat- j
iiig the validity of the law of diminishing re- ;
tarns. The swing toward smaller, more eco
nomical automobiles, foreign and domestic, is
* largely due to their thrifty fuel consumption.
These cars account for more and more of our J
total automobile population. So gas revenues
will decline because fewer gallons will be burn-1
ed. Then, no doubt, it will be urged that taxes
be further increased to make up the loss—and so
the spiral can go on, ad infinitum.
The solution would seem to be a wave of pro
test by motorists —a category which includes
most of the'.'voters.
One of the ways you can support your church
is by supporting your minister, and his program.

Town Council and the Board of Public Works
held a joint meeting Friday afternoon, the pur
pose being to act on the resignation of Ernest J.
Ward, Jr., as Town Clerk. It was a severe shock
to members of both boards and had anybody
dropped in on the meeting they might Itave
thought a funeral service was in progress—so
solemn, was the proceedings. Anyway, Mr.
Ward’s resignation was accepted with profound
regret after it was definitely determined that he
would not reconsider his intention to resign. He
has accepted the position as director of finance
for the City of Rocky Mount, a position paying
s salary substantially above what he is paid in
Edenton and at the same time puts-him in bet
ter position for even higher promotions. T;ie
town in general regrets Mr. Ward’s leaving for
he will leave a void which will be hard to fill,
not only in the capacity of Town Clerk, but in
many other activities in town in which he has
taken a prominent and active part. It goes with
out saying that his legion of friends in Eden
ton wish for him a great deal of success in his
Edenton’s Aces are scheduled to play their
ancient and arch rivals, the Elizabeth City Yel
low Jackets, Friday night. The Aces, on paper,
are favored to win, but that’s been the case
many times before and they came home on the
short end of the score. The Aces have won all
five of their games by impressive scores, while
the Yellow Jackets have won only one out of
four games played. The Yellow Jackets will,
as they have done many times before, play an
inspired game against the Aces, so the two
records might not amount to much. At any rate,
Coach Billings and the Aces as a whole are not
expecting an easy battle, and are preparing for
a real scrap. The game will be played in Eliz
abeth City and if the weather man does not
throw a monkey wrench in the works, the chanc
es are that, except for the police and firemen,
practically the whole works will be in Elizabeth
City Friday night. And if the Yellow Jackets
upset the Aces, it will be a gloomy crowd head
ing back to Edenton after the game. Here’s
hoping the Aces will be able to once more take
the sting out of the Yellow Jackets. The Eden
ton Band will join the crack Elizabeth City
Band, so that an evening of exciting entertain
ment is in store for those who follow the Aces
With football taking the limelight in the way
of sports, below is a “poem” written by—well,
he must be a State College fan:
Hark! The herald angels sing
The State College Walfpack is just the thing,
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
Football’s a man’s game; Carolina is only a child.
Joyful all ye State fans uncaged,
Join the triumph of the age.
With victorious hosts proclaim
The Tar Heels will never again be the same, r
Four games of five won,
Those State taeklers hit like a ton,
It all started with “Big Jim,”
Now his assistant looks like “Little Tim”
As the fiqal score leaves Chapel Hill on a limb.
With three to zero, Little Jim tried to be brave
As pore Old Big Jim turned over in his grave.
And the Carolina fans looked for a cave
As the State fans yelled, “Beat the Knave.”
Big Gabe’s throws were all true
As the Tar Heels’ faces turned blue.
The field was flat—so was Carolina’s score.
As the State fans yelled: “Have mercy,
Wolfpack, score no more”
State—the cow college of yore
Made Carolina look like a bore.
With three to nothing the final score
As Carolina tried to come un from the floor.
What could be finer than to be at Carolina at
the Old Well
Nothing except at State near the Bell.
The victory bell which shouts
There just ain’t no Justice any more,
The Carolina team didn’t even score.
The State guards were husky
And made the Tar Heels look rusty,
Maybe Carolina should hire
Marilyn Monroe—at least she’s busty.
And hire B. B.—just as a trusty.
Little Jim says, “just one more year—
I’ll have State by the ear.
By then my boys will have some traction
I’ll give them salts to get some action.”
Mr. and Mrs. Carlton Haskett, who live in
Rocnester. Indiana, are in Edenton visiting rela
tives and friends. Both have been readers of The
Herald for many years. Mr. Haskett, of course,
is a native of Edenton. but Mrs. Haskett is not,
so she told her husband that while she was in
Edenton she wanted to see the guy who writes
this column. Well, they dropped in the office
Tuesday and Mrs. Haskett saw me. I’m glad for
one reason that they came in, for Mr. Haskett
paid three years’ subscription to The Herald.
Then I sort of regret the visit for another rea
son. for Mrs. Haskett having seen me, now I’m
afraid she’ll cancel the subscription.
Just a reminder for Rotarians (and here’s one
who’s liable to forget) that the meeting today
will be held at the Parish House at 1 o’clock.
The Rotarians were shoved out of the Parish
House while additions a.nd changes were made,
so today it will be like going back home, al
though the Rotarians were very well pleased i
while they met at the Edenton Restaurant. Presi
dent Elton Forehand would like to have a 100 per
cent attendance for the “homecoming.”
And speaking about forgetting, here’s one who
goofed Monday night. District deputies and
other prominent guests attended the Eastern Star
meeting and, of course, on these occasions the
officers are supposed to wear evening clothes. I
caught part of the Red Men meeting, chased off
to the Eastern Star meeting in the hope that I’d
get away in time to catch part of a church meet
ing. I rushed into the Eastern Star meeting in
my working clothes while all the other officers
were “dressed up.” What I recret is that I for
got to dress up and therefore didn’t take advant
age of the opportunity to wear that 85-eent collar
button I recently bought from John Ross.
An interesting visiter while this column* was
being Written was Jake Levy; who now Tives in
Suffolk. Jake operated a clothing store in Eden
ton way back yonder near the corner of Broad
and King Streets. In the few minutes he was
heie Wednesday he recalled the Edenton he
knew. He remembered the bar rooms which
dotted Cheapside, the wqU in the middle of
Broad Street, the trees which lined Broad Street,
the awnings over the s'dewalks ift the business
section, “Uncle” Jimmy Roberson, tMck Lee and
many other reminiscences which yours truly also t
remembers. It’s sort of i pleasure to get up with
former Edentonians and reminisce for a, spell. J
