A LIFT FOR TODAY
He is my refuge and my fortress; my God; in
lilh will 1 trust.—Psalms 91:2.
Our God in a very real sense will put his arms
ibout Us, empowering us for the long, hard climb
ahead, lifting us out of our littleness and self
ishness and widening our vision for service.
Most Holy One, help us to build our lives, on
Thy greatness and goodness waiting upon Thee
that our strength may be renewed.

The Greatest Peace Force
Newsweek recently ran a feature article on
foreign travel by American citizens. This
year all records are being broken, and there
is every likelihood that new record after new
record will be set in the years immediately
ahead. As of now, we actually spend more
on foreign travel than any other foreign com
The big jet aircraft, by establishing new
standards of speed and comfort, have captur
ed travelers’ imaginations and are the prim
ary reason for the dramatic rise in tourism.
And these jets are doing more than just mov
ing massesi of people. Am official of the U. S.
Bureau of Foreign Commerce observes that
there is a trend to travel off the beaten path,
facilitated by the jets, and that this “indicates
a new sophistication of American tourists.”
And a spokesman for a travel association
has touched on an extremely important point.
In his words, “Until recently the principal
draw has been to see new places. But I think
now the trend is to meet new faces as people
try for a better understanding of their neigh
If that is the case, the jet age will truly be
a blessing to the world. Nothing does more
to breed suspicion and distrust than ignorance
of other lands and other peoples—their hopes,
their traditions, their beliefs, their national
characteristics. And nothing can equal know
ledge and person-to-person contact as a breed
er of understanding and friendship. If this
world is to finally achieve a real peace, great
er forces than governments will be needed.
And the most potent force of all can be in
“Mad Dog” Into “Underdog”
J. Edgar Hoover, director of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, writes in a message
directed to all law enforcement officials: “We
are faced today with one of the most disturb
ing trends that I have witnessed in years
in law enforcement —an over-zealous pity for
the criminal and an equivalent disregard for
“This dangerous tendency is inherent in the
various theories and systems now being sug
gested. many of which are aimed at making
sweeping changes in our established methods
of dealing with the lawless . . .
“One proposal, which proponents attempt
to justify from an economy standpoint calls
for a vast decrease in the number of persons
sentenced to prison. Other diverse schemes
being propounded, if adopted, would have the
effect of virtually opening the doors of our
prisons or turning them into little more than
restrictive resort hotels. These plans, of
course, would remove the threat of the thing
most feared by the criminal—punishment for
his misdeeds . . .
“Americans are noted for favoring the ‘un
derdog.’ But all too often we have witnessed
a ‘mad dog’ transformed into an ‘underdog’
by certain people who quickly forget or
choose to ignore the great suffering by inno
cent victims of hardened and professional
Let’s Have A “Taxpayer Day”
As we all know, an almost limitless number
of “days” and “weeks” are observed in this
country. They run a tremendous gamut, and
are designed to honor and publicize just about
Everything from the Boy Scouts to eggs. Some
are worthwhile, some are absurd. In either
case, they seem to be a permanent institution.
However, as Citizens Public Expenditure
Survey points out. one extremely important
element m this country has no special day or
week. That is the taxpayer. He keeps the
country running, but no one formally honors
him. .. . ■
This situation certainly calls for a remedy.
Let there be a “Taxpayer Day” or a “Tax
payer Week” or a* “Taxpayer Month.” A
satoHe badge for the occasion would be a
black-armband. For. in the present state of

Here’s one who was among a group of I,
Edenton people who went to Norfolk Satur- |
day to see the Oyster Bowl football game t c-
tween Navy and Southern Methodist Lni.tr
sity. To be frank about it, the proper name |
should have been the “Rain Bowl”. All I can ,
say is that there were something like 30.000 c
brave souls in Norfolk Saturday afternoon. \
.As for my group, C. O. Letcher, Pete Man- 1
ning and Donald Thomas, we had enough be- .
fore the first half ended and left for home. ’
Os course, there were some in the stadium ]
who apparently didn’t realize it was raining j
unless they felt the rain drops hit their face t
as they tipped back to sip from a bottle or
drink from a cup of “Coca-Cola.” Fact is, ]
I doubt if some of ’em knew a football game ,
was in progress. Anyway, I’d rather pay the j
five bucks to see the Edenton Aces play than i
to sit and get soaking wet, not to say any- 1
thing about being tormented by a gang of ’
1 drunks so that I couldn’t see or hear what ,
was going on over on the football field. \
Arriving too late to appear elsewhere in j
The Herald was a notice to the effect that ,
Bruce F. Jones, new president of the Cham- .
her of Commerce, announced a turkey-country i
ham dinner which will be held in the Masonic 1
Temple Tuesday night, November 1, at 7 ’
o’clock. Chamber of Commerce members and ,
their wives and friends are invited to attend, ,
and Mr. Jones says, there will be good speak- .1
ers, grand fellowship and an opportunity to 1
plan the Chamber of Commerce program of ]
activities ft* the new year. Here’s hoping a
large crowd turns out for the occasion.
Town Councilmen and Board of Public i
Works members are now interested in secur
ing a town clerk to succeed Ernest J. Ward,
Jr., who will leave Edenton for a position in
Rocky Mount on November 1. Tasked the
girls in the office if they had any preference ,
and the answer I got was: “No. we don’t :
care, only we hope you pick somebody who
looks like Rock Hudson.” Oh yeah! We
have work to do in the town office;
Win or lose the Albemarle Conference
championship, Edenton’s Aces are in for a
fine trip on Sunday, November 6-. On that
day Joe Mitchener has invited the Aces to be
his guests on a bus trip to Baltimore to see
the Baltimore Colts and Greenbay Packers
square off. Though the trip will be made on
Sunday, the boys will not miss their Sunday
School lesson, for Joe says the lesson will be
taught on the bus. It goes without saying
that all of the Aces will be looking forward
with a great deal of pleasure to being Joe’s
guests on this trip to Baltimore. And speak
ing about the Aces, they have hung up an
enviable record thus far and they’ll be try
ing to make it the seventh consecutive vic
tory Friday night on Hicks Field when they
are scheduled to tangle with Weldon. The
boys have been playing outstanding football
so that they deserve your attendance.
Just a little transposition of a letter or a
figure can make a lot of difference. For in
stance George Twiddy placed an ad in The
Herald to sell a house on East Queen Street
and the list price was $5,800. But one of
the boys in The Herald office must have be
come a little nervous and transposed the fig
ures 5 and 8, so that the price showed up in
the paper as $8,500. Anyway, George will
sell the place to the first person who’ll fork

our ladies left with the carnival. Going out
one night, I noticed a number of Edenton la
dies sitting in booths selling tickets for the
Various rides. I asked some of ’em if they
had joined the carnival, but learned that mo
thers of band members were selling tickets
during the fair, for which the band was to
receive 100 bucks. Anyway, the ladies didn’t
look like carnival folks and shows that they
are willing to do a lot 6f things to raise
money for the band.

I THINK IT'S A SHAME
Dear Editor; .
Last week I visited the fair
and took my children to see the
things that were on exhibit
which had been carried there.
The children passed over their
tickets, and I paid fifty cents.
And what we saw when we
entered certainly made good
sense. The flowers Were all so
pretty; the vegetables-were very
But as we ventured further
in, I wondered if we hadn’t paid
a big price. We saw the money
keep rolling wherever we hap
pened to go. And as we' got to
the far end, I gasped and said,
“Oh, no!” For there I saw my
son standing, with perhaps a
dozen or so, in front of an ugly
tent with a man calling, “Come
in, and see the girly show!” I
walked over to him and gently
called his name, and said, “If
we, the adult people, of this
county don’t have enough re
spect for our children to keep
this sort of thing out of our
county, we should all hang our.
1 Yes, I do think it’s a shame'
that we can’t replace the girly,
show with an old-fashioned fish
ing pond, or why not a neigh- 1
borly square dance of which we
used to be quite fond?
Now some will call me a
stinker, and some will think me
a square, but as I begin to think,
I was wondering if I, too, -,by
having things on exhibit, didn’t
help to condone - that .girly show
at the Chowan Coilrity Fair.
