A LIFT FOR TODAY
God is no respecter of persons; in every na
tion he that feareth him, and worketh righteous
ness, is accepted with him.—Acts 10:34-35.
We need a keener realization that true brother
hood in action is only the application of "Thou
shalt love thy neighbor as thyself, for we are
no closer to our Heavenly Father than we are to
those whom we do not accept as brothers.
Deepen our understanding of brotherhood, our
Father, that we may recognize all men as mem
bers of Thy Kingdom.
Persistency Pays Off
Again to prove that persistency has some semb
lance of a virtue is borne out by the fact that
the Edenton Woman’s Club this week was given
the green light to carry out its initial beautifica
tion program in its entirety which was aband
oned about a year ago due to the development
County Commissioners and Town Councilmen
agreed to go along with the club s proposed
beautification plan, so that it will not be very
long before work on this project will get under
The plan calls for considerable change to the
Court House Green, including removal of the
Confederate monument to a small park at the
foot of Broad Street. The lower portion of
Broad Street will be considerably beautified,
permission for which was granted by Town
Opposition to the beautification project de
veloped when the plan was presented about a
year ago, and there will, no doubt, again be some
opposition, but with permission being granted,
it is almost certain that the women will see the
work completed according to plans.
The major objection to the initial proposal
was the expected use of county funds to bear a
portion of the cost. But now the Womans Club
will bear the entire expense of the proposal from
profits of the recent Edenton pilgrimage.
Whether objection is registered or not, the pur
pose of this comment is to point out what can
be accomplished if a person or group of persons
are determined and persistent.
Due Big Crowd
The John A. Holmes High School Band is
scheduled to present its final concert of the sea
son Friday night, May 19. in the school audi
torium at 8 o’clock. It is hoped the auditorium
will be filled to capacity which is as it should
It so hapened that previous concerts were very
sparsely attendsd, when the calibre of music
should have been heard by far more people. The
admission is free, so that there can be no com
plaint that it costs too much to attend.
In previous concerts and programs by the
band the music was very worthwhile hearing
and it is to be regretted that so few people ap
parently do not appreciate gpod music.
Friday night’s concert will bring down the
curtain on the directorship of Derwood Bray in
Edentoh,' for he has accepted a position in New
Bern. Mr. Bray has done an outstanding job
with the high school band and it would be a fit
ting tribute and tribute of appreciation to him,
in appreciation of his efforts, for the auditorium
to be filled to capacity Friday night. Then, too,
a large crowd is due members of the band, who
in their particular field, are just about as out
standing as members of the football team or any
other athletic aggregation at the school. They
have devoted a great deal of time to practice
and have developed into creditable amateur mu
sicians, so that they, too, will appreciate many
people being on hand to hear them display their
ware in the way of music.
The writer does not hesitate to predict that the
concert will provide an opportunity to hear a
splendid program of music and, being the final
concert of the season, the auditorium should not
be able to hold the number who should attend.
Music hath charms, so that the concert will pro
vide an evening of high class entertainment and
at the same time a full house will delight Mr.
Bray as well as members of the band.
Over The Top
It is very gratifying to report that the 1961
Red Cross quota of $1,700 has been raised, thus
saving the blood bank for the county for another
year. As of last week the drive lacked about
$225, but in a last minute effort the deficit was
collected over the week-end.
Murray B. Lynch, Jr., chairman of the drive,
senses a feeling of relief as well as pride in the
fact that Chowan County people have rallied to
8 very worthy cause and put the drive over
Mr. Lynch is especially grateful to residents
«f the rural area who responded magnificently
to an appeal when it was reported that scarcely
any previous contributions came from county
Then, too, the Jay cess made a valuable con
tribution to the effort by operating a life line
which helped bolster the amount collected.
It would have been next to 8 calamity to lose
the blood bank and it again goes to prove that
Chowan County people are sympathetic and
.trilling to support a worthwhile project if they
;lr* aware of the needs and are contacted.

fdeard & Seen
Edenton friends are delighted to learn that
Bubba Hopkins, son of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Hop
kins, and the ram-rod of the Edenton Aces last
season, has been selected on the All-Star high
school football team wich will play the Western
All-Stars in Goldsboro during the summer. Hop
kins is one of 11 backfield men chosen for the
team and is one of only two boys chosen from
AA ranks. He had a brilliant record last season
to wind up his high school career when he scor
ed 19 touchdowns during the regular season and
made a major contribution to the success of the
Aces in winning another state championship. He
is scheduled to enter East Carolina College at
Greenville in the fall and here’s one who hopes
he will thrill college football fans as much as
he did Edenton fans while playing for the Aces.
C. D. Stewart, who now lives at Morehead
City, sent me the following note: .
> “Dear Buff: For the past two or three years !
I have been wondering where would be a good
place to retire when the proper time comes. If
you will read the enclosed poem, you will see
that I .no longer have to wonder. The only
trouble is that heretofore I have been thinking
that St. Augustine had the Fountain of Youth, in
stead of St. Petersburg. However, that is just a
minor detail. In fact, you might be interested

A married man must sometimes give a pretty
good excuse to get out a night or so. I was told
the other day that an Edenton husband, not so
very long married, wanted to go out one' night
and told his wife he was going out to shoot craps.
"Well, all right,” said the wife, “but if you shoot
any I’ll have to call up mother for I don’t know
how to cook them.”
Mrs. B. A. Chappell, who lives in Roanoke, Va.,
reprimanded me for not having received a bill
for her renewal to The Herald. Said Mrs. Chap
pell: “My dear Mr. Bufflap—A few days ago I
came across the check stub for my subscription
to The Chowan Herald and discovered that the
new subscription is overdue. As the wife of a
busin :ss man, I’d like to know how you can run
your business and not send bills. We haven’t
found the secret. 1 am enclosing my check for
$3.00 for another year. I enjoy it and am be
ginning to get acquainted with the third genera
tion names We were in Edenton for the Pil
grimage and the old town never looked prettier
to me. Everyone who helped with it should be
congratulated. Send me a bill next year, for I
may not have a reminder .again.”
Asa Dail was making the rounds Friday pass
ing out cigars. Early Friday morning he be
came the pappy of a daughter, Sandra Jean, in
Chowan Hospital, and when he arrived at The
Herald office he was still a bit nervous, but he
managed to hold on to the cigar until I got my
mitts on it.
What a fellow says is many times miscon
strued. For instance, the other day a local fel
low told a friend, “I’m not drinking any more.”
The friend appeared very much surprised and
asked, “What, you mean you’ve stopped drink
ing?” The reply was “No, I’ve not stopped drink
ing, but I’m not drinking any more than I have
Buddy Cannady, who operates a fishing boat
at Oregon Inlet, reported Monday that bluefish
really came into the Inlet Sunday. Glad to hear
the bloomin’ fish are somewhere, for apparently
they’re gone from here, so far as my fishing is
concerned. And, rushed like I am, the scudders
will have left Oregon Inlet by the time I can
get to go.
It’s hard to keep from making mistakes. Last
week I mentioned in this column something about
I. H. Spruill who, I said, lived in Norfolk. But
in the mail Monday morning was a letter from
Mr. Spruill politely informing me that he lives
in Pbugbkeepsie, New York, and not in Norfolk.
Sorry I made the mistake.

qualify for the state-wide Two
Ton Peanut Club in 1661, he will
receive a special award from the
Chamber of Commerce suitable
for such an achievement.
For the past five years peanut
acreage has decreased in Chowan
County and while county-wide
yields per acre came close to the
two-ton average, they never
quite made it. Last year the
average yield fell to 1,800
pounds per acre on 6,300 acres
planted to this crop. If peanut
yield can be increased through
out the county by just one bag
per acre, Chowan County farm
ers would increase their income
by more than $65,000. This is
only a 5 percent increase and
the Agriculture Committee of the
Chamber feels that this goal can
be achieved. Farmers who
qualify for the Ton and a Half
Club will pull up the average
The Agriculture Committee of
the Chamber of Commerce
agreed at their last meeting that
there should be a consistent,
long-range promotion carried on
to interest the farmers of Cho
