JK .SENATOR JORDAN
Washington Once again, I
rave officially asked the Corps
jf Engineers _ and the Soil .Con
servation Service to take the
necessary action to cpmplete and
submit to the Congress a report
on their joint survey of the wa
ter resources of the Cape Fear
This report on our State’s lar
gest river basin has been delay
ed entirely too long.
I am very hopeful that these
two agencies will present their
report without further delay so
the .proper committees of the
Com*- ess cgn begin considering
the" recommendations for ways
and means to best harness the
Cape Fear and develop its far
reaching water resources.
' •The -Corps of Engineers and
the Soil Conservation Service
have been engaged in a joint
survey of the Cape Fear since
1957. On numerous occasions, I
have been assured .the report
would be forthcoming shortly.
Nearly four years have passed
since it was initiated, and still
no report has been 'made al
though all of the field work was
completed long ago.

The Cape Fear offers tremen

developing new sources of usable
water for cities, towns and in

I myself do not know, from
a technical and engineering
standpoint, what would be the
best way to develop the water
resources of the basin. There
has been considerable discussion
and controversy concerning large
dams and small, community
dams of the farm pond variety.
These are matters which must
be settled on the basis of tech
nical data, but no final decisions
can be made until the Corps of
Engineers and the Soil Conser

they have found to the Congress
and to the people.

'trampled Albemarle Conference
leading Scotland Neck 64-55 in
the John A. Holmes High
School gymnasium Friday night
to close out the last and most
successful week of the basket
The Acelets came through in
the preliminary event on a field
goal by Mary Anne Overton in
the closing seconds to take a
27-25 victory, after the Edenton
Junior Varsity had won their
fifteenth game in 16 starts with
a resounding 49-17 win.
The Aces and Acelets for the
first time this season won two
doubleheaders in a roV, beating
Hertford twice Monday night
and Scotland Neck on Friday.
The Aces, even though post
ing a 4-6 conference record for
the year, ended their season in
a blaze of glory in handing the
Scots only their third loss of
the campaign. Bobby Stokely
again led a fierce balanced at
tack, this time getting his career
high of 24 points. Bi,g Wayne
Griffin pumped in 14 points and
Jerry Tolley had 13.
The Edenton boys led 13-12 at
the first quarter mark and 'then
started running with the taller
Scots to take a 30-24 lead at
the half. Scotland Neck rallied
after the rest period and pulled
to within a point, 40-39 at tse
end Os three quarters.
The Aces tried a semi-freeze,
but the Scots kept scoring and
took a three point lead with
three minutes left to play. Coach
Bill Billings then sent in Rich
ard Hollowell, and 'the Aces
were off and running again.
They outscored the Scots 24-16
in the final period.
17ie Edenton defense centered
around Neil Hodges, a 6-foot-7
giant who loves to score and Jim
Liverman, an 18-points-a-garhe
performer. Griffin guarded Hodg
es and Stokely took Liverman,
while the rest of the Aces con
centrated on keeping the ball
away from Hodges in the center.
The big Scot pivot man finished
with 24 points, while Liverman
got only eight.
Behind Stokely, Griffin and
Tolley in the Edenton scoring
were Hollowell with 8 and Fred
Britton with five. Griffin and
Britton helped control the boards
for the Aces. Edenton made 16
of 18 foul shots.
The girls’ game was close all
the way after Scotland Neck had
overcome an early Edenton lead.
The Scots took a two-yoint lead
with thirty seconds to go in the
contest. Beverly Morgan tied
the game a little later with a
pair of foul shots before Over
ton’s shot bounded high on the
rim and dropped through with
seven seconds remaining.
Overton was high for the Ace
lets with 10 points, while Mor
gan had nine and Sara Relfe
Smith eight. Veach led Scot
land Neck with 15 tallies.
For the season, the Acelets
won 10 and lost 3 overall, while
their conference record stands at
7-3. The Aces won 6 and lost 7
for the year and were 4-6 in

Federal Deficit Just Ahead j
By Ralph Robev j
President, Eisenhower’s last
budget message forecast a paper
thin surplus for the fiscal year
ending next June 30. For the
following fiscal year the estimate
was for a surplus of $1.5 billion.
Both of thfese predictions were
widely criticized las too optimis
tic'. They were based upon the
assumption ' that the business
curve would make a definite up
ward turn in the near future.
Whether we are going to have
that upturn 'still is being debat
ed, but the majority of analysts
believe that aft upswing will
start not later than June or
July. But we are going to have
a Federal deficit regardless, both
for this fiscal year and for the
next as well.
Two Kinds of New Spending
This is assured by the in
creased spending plans of Presi
dent Kennedy. Some of these
plans are for the purpose of
helping the business trend; oth
ers are merely because, in the
judgment of the new Admini
stration, the larger outlays are
.good in and of themselves.

3 Another example of such
’ business improvement ' steps is
3 the order issued by the Presi
dent that the Federal allotment
for road building be made at
once—not spread over the year

. Congress Musi Approve These
1 Items involving increased
- spending that are being offered

i sirable without reference to the

pressed areas, enlarged federal
grants to education, plans for

. | for the elder citizens. All of
>| these are subject to Congression
f al action, and they may not be
. passed in the form desired by
, the President. But increased
. spending will be the result in
> any event.
I There is still another proposal
> ; and it does not fit too well in
either of the categories men
tioned, or perhaps it should be
said that it fits in both. This!
is the recommendation 'that un- j
employment benefits be extend-'
ad by Federal grants up to 39
weeks, as compared ' with the
fairly general maximum at pres
ent of 26 weeks.
Implies Federalization of UC
We have discussed this before:
and pointed out that the Eisen
hower Administration also ex
tended such compensatiion pay
ments, but that it was done in
that instance through the Fed
eral government offering to make
loans to any state which needed
the additional funds.
The present plan is quite dif
ferent. It is based upon grants
by the Federal government out)
of the general funds of .the
Treasury, and carries the impli
cation of federalization of the!
unemployment compensation sys
tem. It also is expected that
employers will return such Fed-1
eral outlays by calculating their!
unemployment tax on : $4,800 of!
income per employee, instead of'
the present $3;,000.
But even if the Congress!
adopts this repayment principle,’
and it is by no means certain
that it will lift the base by such
a large amount, it still remains
true that, if the President has
his way, the outgo will start at j
once and the repayment will be
extended over the future. And
since a conservative estimate of
this plan is that it will cost just
short of one billion dollars, it'
alone assures an unbalanced
budget for this fiscal year, and
perhaps even in the following 1
year. ' 1
