What Kind Os Programs Are
Carried On?
The Edenton Chamber of
Commerce is devoting its major
efforts and programs to four
areas:
(1) Industrial development,
helping local industry and ob
taining new industry.
(2) Recreation and tourist pro
motion.
(3) Retail and general business
development.
(4) Special projects.
Who Does The Work In
The Chamber?
A Board of Directors compris
ing seventeen community lead
ers determines the general poli
cies of the Chamber and decides
which projects shall be carried
on. All approved projects are
assigned to one of the Cham
ber’s fourteen standing commit
tees, or to a special committee,
for action. Over 100 members
serve on committees.
Supporting the Board of Di
rectors, officers and committees
are a full-time professional man
ager and an office secretary who
coordinate and expedite the ac
tivities of the Chamber.
How Much Money Is
Required?
In order to carry on activi
ties in the four areas discussed
above, the Edenton Chamber of
Commerce requires $15,000. The
Chamber has gotten along with
less, but activities have been
correspondingly reduced. Indus
trial development and tourist
promotion, -the two areas which
most members say are more im
portant than any other activity,
require more money than many
other Chamber activities.
How Does The Chamber
Spend Its Funds?

Mrs. Lena Leary
BPW Club Speaker
Continued from Page I—Section 1
tarian, Mrs. Lena Leary, gave!
a most informative speech on i
“Advancing Women as Citizens”. |
Lena urged the members to “get i
out and vote,” and emphasized
the fact that to not exercise the
voting privilege was to follow
communistic wishes.
“The people of today have be
come too complacent toward the
situation in the world,” Lena
said, and at this time she gave
the percentage of eligible voters
who voted in Chowan County
over the past few years—which
1 was an extremely low figure. j
| She pointed out that in the'
1956 presidential election only,
1 60.4% of the eligible voters in j
the nation went to the polls to
(vote. In North Carolina, she
j said, only 47.6% of the eligible,
voters took the trouble to vote,'
' and in Chowan County only
45.4% of the eligible voters cast
ballots. She also said that in
most state and county elections
the percentage is much lower.,
In 1956 she said, North Carolina
was eighth from the bottom in
the nation, percentagewise in
eligible voters casting ballots.
Mrs. Leary also said that in
1 the last primary election no
later than may of this year,
only 34.1% of the eligible vot
ers in Chowan County consid
ered the high office of Governor
df the State important enough
to vote. And in the second pri
mary only 27.6% bothered -to
vote.
“This type of complacency is
just what the communists of the
world are hoping for,” said Mrs.
Leary. “We’re doing just exact
ly what they want—playing their
game so to speak. It is far past
time for us to arouse ourselves
and our fellow men to the facts
of life in our county, our state
and our country. We must put
our shoulder to the wheel and
help in the cause of peace, first,
last and always and in so doing
help stamp out the awful di
sease of communism that is
spreading through the world like
fire in dry timberland.”
\ During the business session,
J several reports were made. Mil
j dred Munden, chairman of cal
j endar sales, recognized -Goldie
j Niblett, who sold the most cal
endars and listings in the recent
