vitally interested in the total
development of Eastern North
j Carolina. “This section of the
state,” he said, “is blessed with
•many natural resources but that
they have not been developed.”
In this respect, he advanced the
idea that the several counties!
come together and plan for mu
] tual development of the entire
section. He said other high
ways need improvements and, of
necessity, what money is spent
on U. S. 17 will have some rela
tion with what is spent on other
highways, for a network of good

many facets in road building, he!
said, and they try to thorough-!
