| A LIFT
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye
lifted up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of
Glory shall come in.—Psalms 22:7.
We must destroy the barriers of racial preju
dice, national superiority, personal selfishness
and denominational dissension before the King
of Glory can enter our lives, bringing the Light
which lighteth every man that cometh into the
world.” Then will he become the incarnation of
our hopes, individually and as a nation.
Almighty God, may the gates of our hearts
always be wide open to receive Him Who came
to rid the world of darkness and sin.
The victory of life over death —that is the
' meaning of Easter, the most important and
the most joyous holiday celebrated by Chris
For Easter commemorates the resurrection
of Jesus Christ, who redeemed mankind
through His death and then rose from the
tomb on the third day. In His own victory
over death is the promise of life everlasting
for all men.
The most universal symbol of Easter, and
of Christianity itself, is, of course, the cross.
Many ancient peoples, such as the Phoeni
cians, Assyrians and Persians, considered the
cross a religious object. To some American
Indians it is said to have been a mystic sym
bol of the four cardinal points of the compass.
At the time of Christ, however, it was repre
sentative of the most shameful and cruel form
of execution. The death of Christ trans
formed it from an object of humiliation into
a symbol of glory.

I Edenton’s Lions Club is now in the midst
of its annual Easter Seal Sale which is sched
| uled to end Saturday, April 8, and W. E.
Malotie, sale chairman, urges all citizens who
have not made their contributions to the an
nual appeal to do so at least before Easter
Sunday, which is only a few days off.
“Crippling conditions can look forward to
defeat in the future ahead,” says Mr. Ma

The studies are supported by the Easter
Seal Research Foundation operated by the
National Society for Crippled Children and
Adults, Easter Seal headquarters. Two per
cent of funds received in Chowan County and
1,600 other affiliates of the National Society
during the annual Easter Seal campaign fi
nance the research program.
The research projects, conducted in insti
tutions coast-to-coast, take different avenues
of approach but focus on the problem of the
crippled as a whole.
N T Ow drugs, surgical techniques and pre
ventive procedures have saved millions of
lives in the past several decades. We no
longer need fear the scourges of cholera,
smallpox or diptheria. Tuberculosis is be
ing controlled, paralytic polio can be pre
vented and even the common cold may soon
become only an occasional annoyance. Yet,
many basic questions remain unanswered.
Lives we save must be repaired.
Results of the Easter Seal research projects
may not only help physically handicapped per
sons in this generation, but prevent crippling
conditions, in future generations.
Chowan County citizens are, therefore,
urged to join in the fight against crippling
by giving generously to this great cause.

Some members of the Edenton Woman’s
Club will again be seen on a television pro
gram Wednesday, April 5, at Norfolk and
Wilmington. At 10:15 A. M. ? Mrs. R. J.
Boyce and Mrs. Jackie Ricks, all diked put
in Colonial costumes, will appear on the Mil
dred Alexander show in Norfolk. Then in
Wilmington, Mrs. W. J. P. Earnhardt, Mrs.
Cerinne Thorud and Mrs. Richard Schuman,
also prettied up in Colonial costumes, will ap
pear on the Variety Showcase at 2 and 6:30
P. M. This trio of Edenton ladies will also
meet Mayor E. S. Capps at 3:30 o’clock' and
if the Mayor doesn’t hear about the Edentc&r
Pilgrimage, the only reason would be that he
is hard of hearing.
A ripple developed in Edenton’s political wa
ters Tuesday, when Mayor John Mitchener
announced that he will be a candidate for re
election in the May 2 election. The ripple
will no doubt begin to become larger for the
rumors are that at least two and possibly
I three others will throw their hats in the ring.
The deadline for candidates to file is 6 o’clock
Tuesday afternoon, April 25. And just "for
the information of prospective town officials,
the next administration is bound to face some
very complex problems. Just to mention a
couple, the sewage disposal problem as well
as a gang of headaches in connection with
the base property.
Bill Rosevear, Jim Ricks, Sr., Jack Habit
and yours truly were appointed by Elton
Forehand to be Rotary Club judges at the
fatstock show at the Legion grounds Wednes
day afternoon. With Bill Rosevear knowing
all about toothpaste, Jack Habit an authority
on chickens, Jim Ricks meddling around peo
ple’s dirty clothes and yours truly devoting
most of his time to newspapering, what in
the devil does this quartet know about bulls—
except “shooting the bull?” Anyway, before
I went out 1 figured I’d feel of the bulls and
the one feeling the softest would be irny choice
for first prize—for I like tender steaks.
There’s been times when it’s been mighty
hard to get worms to go fishing. But a “so
lution” will be noticed in “Outdoor Tips” ap
pearing elsewhere in this issue of The Herald.
Says a paragraph: “If you’d rather use
worms here’s away to pick "Up 200 lively
ones—but fast. Mash up the hulls of 20
black walnuts in three gallons of water.
Splash the imagic liquid over a two-foot-square
area. Get ready! In 15 seconds here come
the worms. Just pick ’em up.” Clyde Slade,
a colored boy who works at The Herald of
fice and supplies me with what worms I use,
urged me not to print the item for he says it
might put him out of business. Anyway,
who’s got some extra black walnut hulls?
There's almost always a group of Negro
men hanging around the P & Q Super Market
and there’s no telling what sort of conversa
tions are entered into. Anyway, following last
week’s raid on a liquor still I heard one say
to another, “They’re doing all kinds of work
to get new industry here, but as soon as a
fellow starts a ‘business,’ the law comes along
and breaks it up.”
Then on another occasion a colored man
apparently met a friend whom he had not
seen for some time. “Sakes alive,” one said,
“You are so much taller than the last time I
saw you. How high are you?” The other
replied that he was five feet and 14 inches
tall. “Well, I’ll be doggone,” replied his
friend, “I’d have sworn you were over six
Edenton will lose another good citizen
within the next few days. Raymond Tarking
ton has been transferred from Edenton to
Wilmington by his insurance company, so
that on Tuesday, April 4, he is scheduled to
be on the job in Wilmington. It means that I
he will be one less of the gang of insurance
agents who “torment” me every week. But
the trouble is that another one will be put in
his place. Tarkington will be greatly missed
by his family and many friends and here’s
another who regrets he must leave the old
town. The family, however, will remain in
Edenton for some time at least, so Dick will
have some long week-end trips ahead of him.-

February and March birthdays, too, are
now a thing of the past, but I just heard
about a birthday incident in'the first grade at
the Edenton school. The teacher said to her
pupils, ‘Today is George Washington’s birth
day. I think we ought to sing a song. What
shall we sing?” One little boy quickly re
plied, “Let’s sing ‘Happy Birthday’.” But
the suggestion didn’t get very far, for a little
girl pyt in her two cents’ worth by saying,
“That’s silly. He’s not in our room and be
sides George Washington’s dead anyway.” I
didn’t hear if the youngsters sang or not

Holmes High School Band
presents a concert, a very
small crowd was on hand for
the recent winter concert.
Here’s one who was so tied
up that it was impossible to
wiggle out long enough to at
tend the concert, even though
I would rather have been there
than where I was. It’s just
too stomped down bad that so
few people appreciate the
brand of music Director Der
wood Bray’s group puts out.
The concerts are usually free
even though they’re worth,
paying to hear. But like l|
heard one fellow say, “I would
have been there if they would!
have had some pretty chorus j
girls.” Anyway, a small group (
from the band will play at the

Rejoicing In The Risen Christ
By Rev. Weller E. lienhour. Taylorsville. N. C.
Lei eyes look up and hearts rejoice
And faces smile and Shine;
Let millions worship, sing and praise
And no one sadly pine.
Because our Savior Christ arose
Triumphant o er the tomb.
And conquered death for you and ma
And dark, eternal gloom.
Let sinful men repent and pray
And trust our risen Lord;
Let Christians look beyond this life
For heaven's blest reward.
When they shall conquer death and hall
Through Christ's sustaining grace.
And hear Him say, "Well done, dear child.
Come in and take your place."
Let those who languish, sick and sad.
Lift up their weary soul.
And know the risen Son of God
Stands yonder at the goal.
And sees the tears of those who cry
And hears their humble prayer.
And reaches forth His helping hand
And says, "Dear one. I care."
Oh, Easter time, how blest the day.
How grand the weeks of spring;
How sweet the songs from lender hearts
And choirs that thrill and sing!
How blest the sermons that we hear
That tell us Christ arose.
And picture Him as King of Kings,
Triumphant o'er His foes!
Let multitudes kneel at His feet
And worship at His shrine.
While angels look upon the scene
And claim Him Lord Divine;
Creator ot the universe
And owner of it all;
The giver of all perfect gifts
To those who humbly calL
