•k . . . The effectual fervent prayer of a right
eous man availeth much. — James 5:16.
DO WE REALIZE the unmeasured spiritual re
sources available to us when we really pray ■ Is
not prayer like the tuning oi an instrument—to
get us in tune with heaven s melody? Is it not
the chemistry that turns all hfe to gold.

Thee to release Tny redemptive power through
US for the advancement of Thy work here on
Big Day At Hand
It’s hard to conceive that any stone has
been left unturned in order to make the 1961
Pilgrimage of Colonial Edenton and Country
‘ side a magnificent success. Due to enthusi
astic and hard-working members of the Eden
ton Woman’s Club, sponsors of the tour, plans
for the event were started months ago and
there has been no let-up in efforts to publi
cize and do everything possible to make the
tour the most outstanding since it was inau
For the event Edenton should be in its
“Sunday dress,’’ for no little effort has been
made to have the town as a whole in a tidy
and attractive appearance. Historic build
ings have been tidied up so that they were
never more attractive. People have cleaned
up around their premises so that visitors
should be very favorably impressed with a
neat and clean town. With so much whole
hearted cooperation on the part of Edenton
people and Chowan County in general, mem
bers of the Woman’s Club feel that their ef
forts will not have been in vain and that the
pilgrimage will result in more favorable pub
licity than money could buy.
With the preliminary work of the pilgrim
age going so smoothly and enjoying the full
cooperation of people as a whole, the wo
men iiv- charge of the tour are nothing but
the prospect of a delightful tour.
They feel that Edenton people in general, too,
are looking forward to the event with pleas
ure and that the friendliness and hospitality
for which Chowan County holds an envia
ble reputation will be reflected during the
stay of the many visitors expected.
It is an opportunity for Edenton and Cho
wan County to put its best foot forward and
win many more appreciative and lasting
The community has many things to offer
which have too long been “hid under the
bushel” so that the Woman’s Club is to be
congratulated for inaugurating these tours
and their efforts in making each succeeding
one surpass the previous one. This year’s*
tour, which was advertised far more than
any one before, is expected to eclipse all so
far held, which only goes to prove what can
be accomplished by hard and persistent work,
aided by a goodly portion of cooperation.
Chowan County may well be proud of this
year’s pilgrimage for the offerings are far
superior to many sections of the country
which boast and greatly benefit materially
by what they have to offer in way of his
The Herald, together with a host of Cho
wan County people, welcome the visitors to
Edenton for the 1961 pilgrimage and hopes
our guests will go back home with the feel
ing that they are glad they came, and that
many will come back again even without the
Long May It Fly
The following appears at the masthead of
i Texas newspaper:
“The Pecos Independent is a non-partisan,
conservative newspaper dedicated to promot
ing the individual’s freedom and the growth
of Pecos and West Texas. We subscribe to
the belief that freedom is a gift of God and
not a political grant. We believe that free
dom is consistent only with Christianity. We
believe that our welfare shall depend on our
own initiative and ability; we believe in main
taining a society in which the citizen has full
est individual freedom and the government’s
primary and paramount role is the protection
of that freedom.”
In this objective lies the freedom of the
t : Whenever you assume shat somebody, or
something, cannot be wrong, you are wrong.
& Any old excuse will suffice for not work
ing Igit the best is the possession of plenty
As long as some peoplehave to eat.
Tuesday night a plane from Nebraska
landed at tne Edenton airport at the base.
I understand it came to Edenton to carry
back to Nebraska a shipment of rockfish
fingerly from the U. S. Fish Hatchery. An
other plane is expected to land today (Thurs
day) carrying an industry prospect. Gov
ernor Terry Sanford is also scehduled to land
at the airport Friday for the opening of the
Pilgrimage of Colonial Edenton and Country
side. Here’s hoping this is only a starter for
extensive use of the airport.
Bill Sexton, up at the Post Office, has been
noticing postcards going through the mail
from points far south. Most of these cards
show a beach umbrella stuck in the sand
under which is a beautiful girl in a bathing
suit. The cards are so interesting to Bill
that he’s trying a stunt. In the Post Office
he has set up a beach umbrella under which
he has sprinkled some sand in the hope (may
be) that he will come in some morning to find
a pretty sweet young thing reclining under
the umbrella. Up to now, however, it has
been mighty poor “bait”.
Mrs. Joe Stone was rather surprised the
other day when, while sitting in the Colonial
Restaurant, she spied an airplane which she
thought was going to land on the roof of
the building. However, the plane landed on
the road beside Seabrook Blanching Corpora
tion, not because it was in trouble, but be
cause the two occupants must have been hun
gry. After the landing the plane was parked
beside the road and two men rambled over
to the restaurant for dinner. It was quite a
surprise for Mrs. Stone, who remarked that
they had “customers from the sky”.
So far as I know, there’s been only one
criticism about the Pilgrimage of Colonial
Edenton and Countryside which begins Fri
day. This criticism was a postcard to The
Herald from Marjorie Young, a travel edi
tor of The Daily Mail at Anderson, South
Carolina. Said Miss Young: “If the ‘N. C.’
after your newspaper name, as printers of the
1961 Pilgrimage to Colonial Edenton and
Countryside, had not been printed in fine
type at the bottom back of the folder which
I received. I would never had known what
state the pilgrimage was in. There are many,
mentions of Virginia and I would have guess
ed Virginia. We get many folders this time
of year (over 500). What route is Edenton
on? Near where?” 1 happened to have a
folder about Edenton, so by now Miss Young
should be adequately advised about Edenton.
Have you taken a look down Broad Street
toward the water the last few days? If it
looks a little different, you’ll note that the
signal tower has been removed. Its removal
was urged a few months ago by members
of the Edenton Woman’s Club in order to
help beautify the waterfront. Come to think
about it, the appearance has been improved.
Lots of work is being done to make Eden
ton attractive for the Edenton tour the latter
part of this week, but one “decoration” was
caught in time. Tuesday morning, beside
the teapot at the Court House Green, an
over-enthusiastic person hung up a pair of
ladies’ step-ins on the iron fence. The things
were fastened with clothes pins and blowing
in the stiff breeze, but they were removed
and it’s hard to tell the owner where she can
get ’em back. Sort of a lover’s lane that
street beside the green.
Windows in the business section which
have displays in connection with the Edenton
tour are attracting a lot of attention. Mrs.
Dick Baer was looking in one of the windows
and as she took a second look she said she
was in the “twilight zone.” Anyway, the
committee has been working hard to get up
these displays, so take a look at the win
dows. Nope, none of the stuff is for sale.
Anybody on friendly terms with the weath
er man? If so, he should be treated as good
as possible especially over the week-end. The
stage is all set for the 1961 Pilgrimage of
Colonial Edenton and Countryside for what
is expected to be the best pilgrimage ever. If
the weather man cooperates, the event should
attract a large crowd of visitors and with so
much work done, they should be very favor
ably impressed with their* visit to the old
Here’s one of the oldtimers who went fish
ing Saturday, but I learned that experience
don’t count for so very much up the creek.
Passing young Phil Harrell and Charlie Over
ton, the two youngsters who. were more or
less messing around, held up a nice string of
fish. C. D. Sawyer and I didn’t have the
nerve to hold up our stringer which at the
time had only four fish on it.
