CAN WE EMPHASIZE the sins and shortcom
ings of other peoples, if our own policies and
practices do not meet the standard of Christ?
First, let us review our lives, individually and
nationally, asking our Father to reveal to us our
own failures. Then by the grace and power of
God, we can re-make our own characters, the
first step in building a new world.
•„ Holy Father, may we truly repent all un-
Christian ways and commit our ives unreserved

Chowan Badly Lagging
Mrs. Nick George is very much concerned
about the cancer campaign which is now in pro
gress and is supposed to wind up this month.
Never before has Chowan County lagged as much
in a cancer drive.
Chowan County’s quota for this year is $1,500,
and Mrs. George reported early this week that
only about $275 has been turned in. She, there
fore, is appealing to Edenton and Chowan County
citizens to rally to the support of this very worth
while campaign. Anybody who will make a
contribution is requested to send it at once to
Mrs. Jesse Harrell, treasurer.
Mrs. George points out that 60 per cent of the
contributions go to the county and state organiza
tions, 10 per cent to the national organization
and 30 per cent used for r esearch.
Further, Mrs. George says that because cancer
eventually strikes two out of three families, there
is urgent need for everyone to do his share to
combat a disease which last year took the lives
of more than a quarter of a million fellow Am
ericans. “Here in Chowan County,” she says,
“we can help save lives and reducing suffering
by making contributions.”
Mrs. George points out that some 85,000 men.
women and children die needlessly of cancer
< every year simply because they do not see their
doctors in time. She, therefore, urges every
household to get a health checkup regularly.
‘Our objective,” she says, “is to help save more
lives and to support the research that will one
day find a solution to the cancer problem.”
It is to be deplored that Chowan County is so
badly lagging in this drive, so that an urgent
appeal is made for Chowan County people as a
whole to rally to the suppoit of Mrs. George in
her desire to meet the county's quota.
Make Your Ballot Count
With Edenton’s municipal election scheduled to
be held Tuesday of next week, another pertinent
reminder is advanced for the benefit of voters.
It is reported that quite a few new voters have
been registered and some may .not be as well ac
quainted with voting rules as they should be.
There are two contests for which there are
more candidates than offices to be filled. This
is the case for Councilmen-at-large and Board of
Public Works. It is often the case that a voter
does not care to cstst a ballot for a particular
candidate, so that a ballot is cast for Only a por
tion of the candidates.
Two Councilmen-at-large will be elected for
which there are four candidates. A voter must
mark two names for his ballot 'to be counted in
A similar situation exists for the Board of Pub
lic Works. There are seven candidates but only
five will be elected. In this case a voter must
'. mark five names in order for the ballot to be
This information is again set forth, so that
1 voters will not make the mistake of voting er
roneously and thus have their ballot thrown out.
It is important to vote, but it is even, more im
portant to properly mark ballots so that they can
Let’s Keep Squealing!
According to the Chamber of Commerce, Eden
ton will be well represented at a meeting with
the State Highway Commission in Raleigh today.
The purpose of this meeting is for communities
J served by U. S. Route 17 to press action for tnv»
: provements to U. S. 17 in oraer ,to coincide wun
3 the opening of the Chesapeake Bay bridge and
* tunnel, expected to be completed in 1963.
• Many arguments have already been heard by
the Highway Commission relative to the neces
sity to improve U. S. 17, but these and other ar
guments should continue to be advanced. The
traffic on U. S. 17 is confidently expected to in-
crease by leaps and bounds when this artery of
I traffic is opened to the public. And if this im
| portant highway is not adequate to cope with this
| increased traffic, the entire section will obviously
| be detrimentally affected.
i Os course, the highway folks have been made
acquainted with the prospect of increased trav
eling on the route, but we who are so vitally
.' affected should not be content until something
| concrete has been promised or done.
* The remark of Merrill Evans, chairman of the
4 State Highway Commission, still rings clear.
$ Mr. Evans was telling about going out to feed
i some pigs. “If you heard one group of pigs
sj|guealing to beat the band and another group
g apparently contented, which ones would you

\f4eard & Seen
A very pleasant visitor to The Herald office
the latter part of last week was Mrs. Eleanor
R. Beach of Rochester, New York. Mrs. Beach
had heard something about Edenton and along
about September she requested the Chamber of
Commerce to send her a copy of the Edenton
newspaper, which was done and she immediate
ly subscribed to it although she didn’t know a
soul in Edenton. When she entered the office
she shook my hand and Said she will how even
more enjoy reading The Herald. She remained
in Edenton a few days lookihg over the histori
cal sites, and you know suiftpin’, some visitors
know more about Edenton than a lot of folks
who live here. Mrs. Beach met up with Miss
Marion Robertson, librarian at Shepard-Pruden
Memorial Library, who hails from Buffalo, N. Y.,
so they had a nice little chat. Anyway, it was
nice meeting her and she apparently felt well
repaid for her brief visit to the old town.
Postmaster J. L. Chestnutt this week received
a postcard from Mrs. Eva Fowler, who lives at
20 South Swain Street in Raleigh. Said 'Mrs.
Fowler: Have just read of the disaster of the
Casper family. Am sure sorry. If someone
could or will come to the above address I will
'try to get up a package for them. I am in a
wheelchair and can’t come, but will do all I can
to help them, and may God richly bless them.”
Anybody going to Raleigh?
Mrs. George D. Ward of Norfok sent in her
renewal to The Herald, with the following note:
“I enjoy reading The Herald very much and
keep up with news around Edenton since I used
to be a resident there. What happened to the
hospital news? I would like to see it in the
paper again!” Here’s another one who would
like to print the hospital news, but I’m told the
folks at the hospital do not have time to make
up the list and neither do I.
James Bond the other day was passing out
some cards. Nope, they were not political cards,
for he has no opposition for town treasurer in
Tuesday’s election. It’s sort of late for me to
benefit by the cards, for one carried 12 rules for
raising delinquent children and the other 12
rules for raising responsible children. Because
the average parents, no doubt, think they know
how to raise responsible children, here’s the 12
rules for raising delinquent children:
1. Begin with infancy to give the child every
thing he wants. In this way he will grow
up to believe the world owes him a living.
2. When he picks up bad words, laugh at him.
This will make him think he’s cute. It will
also encourage him to pick up “cuter”
phrases that will blow off the top of your
3. Never give him any spiritual training. Wait
until he is 21 and then let him “decide for
4. Avoid use of the word "wrong”. It may de
velop a guilt complex. This will condition
him to believe later, when he is arrested for
stealing a oar, that society is against him
and he is being persecuted.
5. Pick up everything he leaves lying around—
books, shoes, and clothes. Do everything for
him so that he will be experienced in throw
ing all responsibility on others.
6. Let him read any printed matter he can get
his hands on. Be careful that the silver
ware and drinking glasses are sterilized, but
let his mind feast on garbage.
7. Quarrel frequently in the presence of your
children. In this way they will not be too
shocked when the home is broken up later.
8. Give a child all the spending money he
wants. Never let him earn his own. Why
should he have things as tough as you had
9. Satisfy his every craving for food, drink, and
comfort. See that every sensual desire is
gratified. Denial may lead to harmful frus
10. Take his part against neighbors, teachers,
policemen. They are all prejudiced against
11. When he gets into real trouble, apologize for
yourself by saying “I never could do any
thing for him.”
12. Prepare for a life of grief. You will be
likely to have it.
Usually when a picture of a person is made
a remark is made “that’s a sorry picture of me ”
So the other day when “KB” Davis saw the pic
ture which appears on the front page of this is
sue he said. “I look too darned serious.” “Well,”
I told him. “anybody working in a bank has to
be serious.’ In fact they’re too darned serious at
times when a fellow hits ’em up for a loan. But
a camera doesn’t lie—it takes what is on front of
it, sa that a good looking picture can not be
made from a sorryiqg looking person.
While in Raleigh recently, I met a lady who
admitted that she was “nosey.” She said it wor
ried her until she found out something about jiew
neighbors moving in or to get the dope on a fuss
she heard in the neighborhood. She had a scheme
to get in on the ground floor. Whenever a neigh
bor moved in or she heard a rumpus next door
she would hurriedly bake a cake. Then she
would send a slice or two by her little daughter.
In a short time the lady would go in search of
her daughter and in that way found out about all
she wanted to know. Good stunt, eh!
The “hams” hanging in front of Phthisic’s Su
per Market caused a great temptation Hie other
night A group of boys from New York went
through Edenton and while stopping on Broad
Street they spied the string of “hams”. One of
the boys apparently figured he’d Appease his ap
petite for ham, so he in some way jumped high
enough to yank down one of the “hams”. How
ever, when the “ham” fell to the sidewalk, it
was already digested for only sawdust scattered
around the sidewalk when the hag tore apart.

Well the Edenton Pilgrimage
has come and gone, but mem
ories of the wonderful success of
the affair will long be remem
bered. It seemed as though
everybody joined in the big af
fair. Many women, boys and
girls were dressed in Colonial
costume and even Mrs. W. L.
Boswell required her corps of
waitresses at the Edenton Res
taurant to be diked out in Co
lonial style dresses. Their uni
form was reason for a lot of
favorable comment on the part
of Edentonians and visitors as
Members of the Methodist
Men’s Club were very pleased
with the outcome of the pickled
herring breakfast served during
the Edenton Pilgrimage. So
popular was the breakfast that
the men have planned another
similar breakfast Saturday morn
ing, May 6, from 7 to 9 o’clock.
Lots of people expect to go
again for they like the taste of
pickled herring but don’t like
the “smell” from cooking ’em at
home. When the boys add
smoked herring to the menu
they’ll have another customer.
The First Ward is sort of hog
gish so far as candidates in
Tuesday’s election is concerned.
There are 21 candidates in the
race for the 13 offices to be fill
ed, and of these 21 candidates,
11 live in the First Ward. Os
the ’seven candidates for the
Board of Public Works, six live
in the First Ward. Os course,
there’s nothing wrong with that,
but what’s the matter with the
