I rsnklv Speaking
By Fronx Huberts
Today’s big skewp: Milton
Bunch does so worry. However,
he doesn't do it very much, and
his public never sees a frown.
Anytime you wanna fill ’er up, 1
at Milt Bunch’s you can be sure
ot a smiling, friendly greeting.
Milt Bunch has operated his
gas station for seven years now.
Prior to that, he worked eight
years for Joe Conger. Prior to
that he was in the air force and
prior to that he was an assist
ant manager far an A&P store.
! We gathered all this information j
j from both Milt, and his lovely
I wife at their very unusual but!
I very handsome home in Morris
| Circle. Found out that he was
born in Chowan County and j
graduated from the Gum Pond
j School. Milt is married to the
former Evelyn Harrell, and they
: are the proud parents of Pa- j
•| tricia Ann who’s 15; Earl Wayne
13, and little Cynthia, two. Mil
i ton, himself, has three brothers
1 and a sister. As mentioned a
j few paragraphs ago, Milt was in
! the Air Force. He was a bom
; bardier and served in both the
European and Japanese theatres
;of operation. It was during one
particular mission over France,
that Milt was shot down. He
spent over two months marching
I through wooded areas and small'
I French towns ducking the Ger
-1 mans, not getting enough to eat
| and, more often than not, going
hungry. He tells of his experi- \
ences with a priest in France
who tried to patch up his
wounded feet. As a matter of
i fact, it was due to his badly in-
I jured feet that Milt received
.'the most coveted award, the
! Purple Heart. Amongst his oth
er wartime awards; the valued
Air Medal. It was after his dis
' charge that he came back home
and went to work in one phase '
| of the .gasoline and oil business
with Joe Conger, then became
his own boss in a business that
that Milt describes as; “nowhere
near as easy as it sometimes
looks.” Long hours are requir
ed, a mechanical bent and goodl

ing, summertime is best for his
particular business, thanks main
ly, to the pick u,> in the tourist
trade. However, he relies on
local trade, of course, for the
bulk of his business. Speaking
of, tourists, I was both surprised
and happy to find that niore
travellers than I had thought,
take time out to ask about and
investigate our many points of
interest. Along that line, tiil*
believes that, at this time, the
town is doing as much as it can
to promote tourist trade, but, he
declares, more should be done to
attract industry to our area. By
the way, I asked him if he did
like Edenton. He said he did, |
but his wife qualified that with: 1
“you couldn’t run him out of
Edenton.” One of his big rea
sons for his love of our town
is his love of hunting and fish
ing, particularly the latter. He
generally trawls for rock. In!
summertime, he’ll settled for
anything that’ll bite his line
down at Nags Head. Does he
eat what he catches? Heck, yes, J
he'll eat anything except spin
ach or lamb. Milton Bunch
likes eating, fishing, people, life.
On television, Milton likes the
musical shows, such as Dinah
Shore but, as in most everything
else, his tastes are varied and
he’s easy to please. Doesn’t go'
in too much for cowboy shows, ■
With Milt having taken such!
an active physical part in the
second World War, I was curi
ous as to his reaction concern
ing the world situation these;
days. His answer was typical'
of him. Optimistic. He feels 1
that our new President will defi-1
nitely pave the way to better
times in our country and
throughout the world. Well, one
thing is sure. If more folks had
Milt Bunch’s cheerful disposi
tion, pleasant ways, optimistic
