Bouquets In Order
There is always some degree of satisfaction in ;
the realization of a job well done. Such is right
ly the experience of members of the Edenton
Woman's Club following the conclusion of their
196 V Pilgrimage of Colonial Edenton'and Coun
tryside. . .
Even with more work devoted than hereto
fore and a \great deal more publicity, those in
charge are overwhelmed with the success of
the tour which has gone far beyond the expec
tations of even the most optimistic.
The weather was a prime factor in drawing
visitors to Edenton, for conditions were almost
perfect for traveling and for making the rounds
to the points of interest scheduled on the pro
gram. Smiles and expressions of satisfaction
were apparent among the great throng of visit
ors, as was the case with anyone who had any
thing to do with the arrangements, not to say
anything about Edenton people in general, who j
joined with the Woman’s Club in expressions
of delight over the way the tour was handled
and with the success which had been realized.
It is a certain fact that visitors, in many cases,
were not only surprised but very much impress- j
ed with what they saw. Some even expressed j
surprise that similar pilgrimages had not been j
inaugurated many years ago and that even ■
more publicity had not been given to them. I
Which is to say that Edenton and Chowan Coun- I
ty for too long a time has hid its historical sig- j
nificance “under the bushel.
The success of the pilgrimage is again proof \
Ot what can be accomplished by hard and per
sistent work, coupled with the aid of wholeheart
ed cooperation. Some members of the Woman’s >
Club worked like Trojans. They made many j
sacrifices in way of time and effort to stage a j
first class tour and the success realized undoubt
edly is all the compensation they expect. All j
details of the tour worked out very smoothly so !
that those who were responsible for planning j
the event deserve a great deal of praise and
The pilgrimage was very worthwhile and as
a result Edenton has received a good slice of
favorable publicity which money couldn’t buy.
It was a wonderful event and The Herald joins
many others who compliment the Woman’s Club
for staging the most delightful and successful
tour ever sponsored by the club.
A Healthy Condition
With April 25 at 6 P. M., being the deadline |
for candidates to file for the municipal election
on Tuesday, May 2, there are already four con
tests. These are for Mayor, Councilmen-at
large and Councilmen from the First and Third
The Herald again points out that to cast a
ballot in this election, a voter must be register
ed in the Town of Edenton registration books,
which are separate and apai t from the county
registration books. It should, therefore, be
hoove any citizen who desires to cast a ballot
in the election to check at once and see if he
or she is properly registered in the ward where
the ballot is to be cast.
The Herald also, points out again that the
“one-shot” ballot has been outlawed. This was
a practice of voting for only one candidate when
one or more candidates were to be elected for
a certain office. The idea was to give a cer
tain candidate an advantage by eliminating a
Vote for any of the other opponents.
In the - forthcoming election more than one
candidata will be elected for Councilmen-at
large and members of the Board of Public
Works. In order for votes to be counted, a voter

I have again filed as a candidate for
re-election for Councilman-at-large in
the Municipal .Election Tuesday, May 2.
If elected, I shall continue to use my best
efforts toward a progressive Edenton
and whatever I may be able to do for the
best interest of the town as a whole.
YOUR VOTE AND SUPPORT WILL
BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Another Chowan County Negro family had
the misfortune to lose all of their worldly pos
sessions, but they have not lost faith in kjhdly
people who will no doubt come to their rescue.
Tuesday night the home of Jasper Hardy on
the Greenfield farm was totally destroyed- by
fire winch wiped out all of their possessions.
Besides Jasper and his wife there are 13 . head
of children, so that the family is in very bad
shape. An appeal for help has been made by
friends of the family and any contribution can
be sent or taken to Haughton Ehringhaus at
Hotel Joseph Hewes.
John Mitchener is now hooked up in two
elections. In the first place he will be opposed
by Leroy Haskett, a former Mayor, for the of
fice of Mayor in the municipal election Tuesday,
May 2. In the second place he is one of two
nominated for third vice president of the N. C.
Pharmaceutical Association. The nomination
was made at the 81st annual convention of the
N. C. Pharmaceutical Association held in Greens
boro Sunday through Tuesday. The vote for
this position will be made by members mailing
in their ballot in June, while the 'Mayor's.. job
will be decided by Edenton voters at the polls
Tuesday, 2. If elected by the druggists
in June, Mr. Mitchener will automatically be
come president, and if he is elected Mayor of
Edenton he will automatically inherit a lot of
Two local people were somewhat elevated
during the Edenton pilgrimage last week-end.
For instance Winks Bond had tacked to his
name “Squire of Clemen Hall.” And it was
during Inglis Fletcher’s response to glowing tri
bute paid to her by Governor Terry Sanford,
Congressman Herbert Bonner and Mayor John
Mitchener that she referred to John Mitchener
as “Lord Mayor of Edenton.”
With four contests already lined up in the
Edenton election Tuesday, May 2, it appears a?
though local politics will reach the boiling
point. Should be a go.od chance to get a cigar
or so, but maybe that custom has gone by the
board just like the cigars used to come across
for a new-born baby.
Here’s one who was on duty for a time at the
Masonic Temple during last week’s pilgrimage.
It was a pleasure to serve with Eddie Spires
who did most of the talking in connection with
the old records and relics. Many visited the
lodge room and were just about as much im
pressed with the beauty of the interior of the
building as they were the historical items. Then
a lady from Washington, D. C., was telling me
that she was enjoying the flowers as much as
anything else. Well, the flowers were out in
full bloom and the lady said, up in Washington
they were just beginning to bud. But the only
trouble with being on duty at the temple was
that it knocked a Saturday fishing trip smack
between the eyes.
Quite a few people attended the PTA meeting
Tuesday night, when they were treated to a
program by children from the kindergarten and
third grade under the direction of Mrs. John F.
White. The program was very much enjoyed
and if you ask me some of the programs put on
by youngsters in school are as good or better
than many a movie or TV program which I
have seen already.
I'm not the bnly one who is getting forgetful.
One local fellow was mad as a hornet Saturday
morning. He is very lond of pickled herring,
which are few and far between at home due to
the odor when cooking, and bought a ticket for
the pickled herring breakfast at the Methodist
Church. But he ate breakfast at home and the
first time he thought about it was when he
passed the church and saw a gang' of automo
biles parked on the street.
Councilmen-at-large and five for the Board of
Public Works. If this is not done, the voter
might as well not have voted for the ballot will
be thrown out.
Up to Wednesday four contests developed in
the forthcoming election. These contests are for
Mayor, Councilmen-at-large and Councilmen
from the First and Third Wards. It is a healthy
sign when there is opposition for town offices.
In fact there should be more people who are
interested in the progress and welfare of Eden
ton and who are willing to make sacrifices and
shoulder the responsibility of carrying on the
largest business in the community aiid one which
directly or indirectly affects every citizen. There
really should be opposition for every office to
be filled in the election and the voters should
consider it thSir solemn duty to choose those
whom they believe will make the best officials.

Dear Mr. Bufflap: I have
been very much interested in
the proposed changes in the
Town Charter of the City of
Edenton as relates to the possi
ble staggering of certain po
As a native bom Edentonian,
I am at a loss to comprehend
this movement toward sociali
sation. We have had a most
effective set-up in the past
which has lasted without dis
content for sqme 50 years. Now
why do we have to change our
charter every few years? I.
sincerely doubt that there is a
printed copy of the Town of,
Edenton charter available to '
any one of our duly elected of
ficers in our town without the
aid and assistance of our city
attorney to tell him or her of
the changes made.
I have always and always will
oppose any political changes in
the original Town of Edenton
charter unless it has been with
the consent of the voting public
and only with their full knowl
edge .and consent of such j
Frankly, I believe we as a.
town should have the entire i
charter reconditioned and I
brought up to the ’6o’s—the age 1
in which we now live and that 1
at least 100 copies of this be |
printed and given and used as
our Council (town) wishes. This
to be of the loose leaf copy so!
as to provide for the next 50!
years some semblance of the j
charter then prevailing.
I think we have an excellent,
operating body at present and
that our town, while suffering
from our rich uncle’s folly in i
closing our base, we are striv-!
ing like the patriots of old to
keep our eyes on the future.
We must concentrate now on.,
our historical progress even
though most of us feel that for
tlie immediate our having
smokestacks would bring us the
end of our present doldrums.

TO VOTERS OF EDENTON
Many citizens of the Town of Edenton have of
fered their support and urged that I become a can
didate for election to the office of Mayor of the
Town of Edenton in the coming municipal election.
For the confidence these citizens have expressed in
me, I am sincerely grateful.
Realizing that a great deal of time, which I do
not have available, study, thought, and energy would
be required to properly fill this important position, 1
must decline these requests and offers of support,
however, I am offering myself as a candidate for
re-election as a member of the Board of Public
Works. In'this undertaking I solicit the voters sup
port and vote.
