Your sins are forgiven you for His
name’s sake. —I John 2:12.
We cannot doubt the existence of evil with
whicn wa are eomronied w all sides and wnich
touches every life. However, let us remember
that if we sin, we have an advocate with the
Father, Jesus Christ the righteous who alone
can deliver us from the power of evil.
By the leading of Thy spirit, O God, help us
jo overcome our sinfulness and grant us Thy
Vaccinate Your Dog
Attention is called to the rabies clinics sched
uled to be held by Dr. G. L. Gilchrist, rabies in
spector for Chowan County. These clinics will
begin Monday, May 29, and Dr. Gilchrist has ar
ranged a schedule to make it as convenient as
possible to have dogs vaccinated, so that it is
hoped owners of dogs will take their animals to
the nearest clinic.
In connection with these rabies clinics, it
might be timely to point out Section 106-365 of
the Public Health Laws of North Carolina, which
states: “In all counties where a campaign of
■vaccination is being conducted, it shall be the
duty of the owner of every dog to have same
vaccinated annually by a rabies inspector in ac
cordance with the provisions of Sections 106-364
to 106-387. And it shall be the further duty of
the owner of said dog to properly restrain same
and to assist the rabies inspector in administer
ing the vaccine."
It is common knowledge that many dogs in
Chowan County are not listed on the tax books
and obviously go without vaccination. The dog
problem has time and again bobbed up in meet
ings of the County Commissioners and Town
Councilmen, so that probably the time is not too
far distant when arrangements can be made to
get rid of dogs which are not listed for taxation
and are not vaccinated according to law.
Considerable damage done by dogs is occasion
ally reported and this damage is caused by dogs
which are apparently not claimed by anybody.
Not only is this damage a source of legitimate
complaint upon the part of citizens, but it is un
certain whfn an outbreak of rabies could de
velop! Rabies is fatal to all animals bitten by
another rabid animal. Generally dogs, cats and
foxes spread the disease to other warm blooded
animals, as well as to man, through bites.
These rabies clinics are, therefore, very im
portant and every owner of a dog should con
sider it his or her duty and responsibility to
have their dogs vaccinated —and listed on the
tax books, too!
The Congress of the United States has set aside
May 30th each year as Memorial Day. It is on
this day that the citizens of this great country
pay homage to the men who died in the service
of their country in time of war.
Many business places close their doors and
take a holiday to commemorate this day but far
too few ever give the men to whose memory this
day is dedicated a thought or a prayer.
Members of the Wm. H. Coffield, Jr., Post 9280
of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, would like to
ask the citizens of the community to make this
Memorial Day what it was intended, a day to
remember. They do not advocate that you sit
and brood all day over the lost of these fine
young men, but at some time during this day
give them a thought or better still a prayer.
They had hoped to be able to list the name
of each man who died in the service at the end
of this article but for some unknown reason they
can find no such record of these names available.
Next Tuesday is Memorial Day 1961. At some
time during this day remember a fallen service
man and say a prayer.
Lost s22B Billion!
Who gets hurt when inflation sets in, and the
A report made by the Economists’ National
Committee on Monetary Policy may help you
answer that question.
It says that a loss of over $228 billion, or 57
per cent, in purchasing power has been experi
enced by savers on average holdings in six cate
gories for the period 1939 to 1959-60 because of
this depreciation. The six categories are U. S.
savings bonds; time deposits in banks; savings
capital in savings and loan associations; life in
surance in force; annuities paid out, and social
security trust and unemployment funds.
Just about everybody has been hit, in one or
more of these savings categories. And most of
the people, obviously, have small or moderate
means. The inflationary blow is particularly
Cruel to those who live on fixed incomes, as
provided by annuities, social security payments,
and so on.
The dollar’s value in purchasing power has
gone down by more than half, in a dismayingly
short period of time. Will we have the strength,
the wisdom, and the political courage to save
what is left of it?

If I recall correctly, there was some doubt
about a year ago as to the time the Confeder
ate monument was erected on the Court House
Green. But, thanks >o John M. Bond, I have a
handbill before me setting out the program for
the laying of the cornerstone for the monument
on June 3, 1904. In that it might be interesting
to Herald readers, the handbill is reproduced:

For many years the local Methodists had a
poet and didn’t know it in the person of Mrs.
Cornelia. Helms. Mrs. Helms now lives with
her son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Park
er Helms, at Erlanger, Kentucky, and last week
sent a poem to Mrs. W. C. Moore, who read it to
her Sunday School class. The poem follows:
HOMESICK AND BLUE
I just got to thinking, and it doesn’t seem quite
For me to be here and all of you away out
How I do miss you, and am I blue,
Sometimes I just don’t know what to do—
So I look into my mirror, feeling mighty low.
Pull myself together, put on some “touch and
Then I think, with a tear and a sigh,
If I had a husband, my O my!
I’d go back to Carolina, where I’ll always
long to be.
Still I remember things could be much worse
So enough of this dreaming, for I’ll .never more
But stay put right here in “My Old Kentucky
Knowing full well something about that hus
band part of the poem and not to be outdone,
here’s one of my “compositions”:
There’s no place like home
I’m told by some of my cronies.
But when you're livin’ alone,
The house is full of a lot of bolonies.
Whichever state you live in—
Whichever state you’re born in—
Nothin’s ever finer
Than Carolina In the Mornin’.
Recently I made a little comment in this
column about Mrs. Eleanor Beach of Rochester,
New York, making a visit to Edenton. This
week I received the shortest letter I’ve ever re
ceived. Said Mrs. Beach in her letter, “I’m
flattered.” And that was all. One thing sure,
it didn't take long to read that letter.
As one grows older, I’m absolutely convinced
that memory gets shorter and shorter. I knew
full well that the Center Hill-Cross Roads fire
men planned to observe open house Saturday
and would sell barbecued pork and chicken
plates. I had planned to get a good supper at
Cross Roads, but the affair never entered my
mind Saturday until I finished eating at home
Saturday night after a solo fishing trip. The
firemen and folks of the community are justly
proud of the new fire truck which arrived
Wednesday of last week, and Troy Toppin tells
me the open house was a very successful affair
with a big crowd of people turning out to in
spect the fire department and enjoy a first class
meal. If ever a fellow felt like kicking himself,
here’s one who felt that way Saturday night
after remembering that I passed up a good
meal and a period of fellowship with a group
who have for a long time been anticipating a
new fire truck.
It’s a settled fact that the weather recently
has played havoc with crops and fishing here
about. As a matter of fact, Cage Hayman • has
sold so few live bait the past few weeks that
he told me Saturday that if he don’t soon sell
more minnows he’ll have to make a muddle of
his bait and invite the fishermen around to
help eat it.
Last Sunday’s Sunday School lesson had right
much to say about the diligence of the lowly
ant. But as was facetiously asked by a mem
ber of one of the classes at the Methodist Sun
day School: “Why is the ant considered such a
diligent insect when it can take time to go to
all the picnics?”
In the mail this week was a letter addressed
to “Councilman-at-Large,” and here is what the
letter had to stfy, signed “Citizen of Edenton”:
The majority of citizens in Edenton enjoyed
the Tasty Freeze prpducts and felt like Edenton
was progressing to have a truck passing the
door slowly and playing music so you would
know how near the truck was if a person want
ed to buy anything. You just had to step out
the door with your money and get it. They
have then in other pieces, so why not one here?
We would rather have the truck coming by with

I what noise it makes than to
' hear the rumpus ait the ball
park on Sundays. Only one part
of town can get ice cream be
cause of a set time to get off
the street. Children and women
enjoy going out to get some ice
cream and sit in their home to
eat it. Everybody don’t go to
ball games an Sunday for they
don’t approve of Sunday ball
games. Now, which is worse,
the music playing on the street
or people yelling at a ball game?
The music is not very loud to
cause excitement. It is just a
store on wheels rolling by the
door. I think it is time to wake
up and ignore trivial complaints.
Everybody wants to make a liv

persons, so why should you lis

Edenton Rotarians had an old

miral of the Fleet” in the North
Carolina Navy, will direct the
Chowan County effort to provide
its share of the $250,000 needed
from public subscription to tow
the giant ship from Bayonne,
New Jersey, to Wilmington, N.
C., and establish it as a perma
nent educational exhibit and
memorial to men and women of
all the U. S. Military services
in World War 11.
Completed in 1940 iand com
missioned in 1941, the 'UjS.S.
North Carolina was affection
ately nicknamed the “showboat”
by the Navy because she was
the first warship to carry 16-inch
guns along with modem anti
aircraft weapons. She served in
the Pacific theatre for 40 months
during World War H, taking
part in virtually all major en
gagements from Guadalcanal to!
Tokyo Bay. In all she earned,
12 battle stars.
The Navy originally planned I
to scrap the North Carolina, but:
efforts of residents of the state|
for which she was named have
begun to save her. With a suc
cessful campaign to raise the
$250,000 necessary to preserve
her, the U.S.S. North Carolina
will become the only World War
H battleship in the nation to be
open to the public.
Mr. Dixon pointed out that
any Chowan County resident
giving as much as SIOO or any
campaign worker who solicits
SSOO or more will be made an
Admiral in the North Carolina
Navy by Governor Sanford. The
Admiral’s name will be enscrib
ed on a plaque aboard the ship.
Anyone contributing $5 will re
ceive five free admissions to
visit the ship! Any school aver
aging 10c per pupil for 100 per

dents will each be given a free
admission. All contributions are
