A LIFT FOR TODAY
The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a
broken heart; and saveth such as be of a con
trite spirit.—Psalm 34:18.
Jesus cannot and will not accept us, if we
come trusting in our own virtues; when we ap
proach him penitently confessing our shortcom
ings, he will receive us gladly and impart his
strength to our weakness.
Our Loving Father, make our hearts perfect
toward Thee, loyal and obedient unto Thy will
and Thy purposes for world redemption may be
perfected through us.
Small But Good Quality
Though Chowan is one of the smallest
counties in the State, the quality of its citi
zens and its products stacks up well with any
of the other counties.
An example of this is reflected in the news
just released that Mrs. Marvin Evans was
.one of the 12 winners in the Atlantic & Pa
cific Tea Company’s Leadership Award. As
’a reward she will be presented a silver tray
at the annual Awards Night Program to be
.held in Raleigh July 13 in connection with
the observance of Farm Home Week.
Mrs. Evans has been an outstanding Home
Demonstration Club member for six years and
has had a perfect attendance record with the
Oak Grove Club, in which she played an im
portant part in organizing. Her interest and
enthusiasm has become contagious, in that
she, her husband and four of their six chil
dren won 46 medals and certificates at the
County Achievement Day program.
The Herald congratulates her upon her
-success in winning the leadership award. She
has won an outstanding honor not only for
herself and family, but Chowan County as a
whole, and especially Home Demonstration
Club women, are justly proud that she was
able, among so many club women, to bring
this honor to Chowan County.
So Long Forgotten
W’ith all the emphasis now placed on com
memorating the Civil War dead, and interest
directed on the disposition of the Civil War
monument here in Edenton, it is a trifle
odd that no effort has been made to perpetu
,ate the names and deeds of the men of Cho
wan County who died in World Wars I and
II and Korea.
js It is true, efforts have been made to se
cure a roster of such veterans, but those who
have attempted to gather this vital informa
tion have received no cooperation from the
.part of the public who should be most inter
ested. and have been met on all sides with
an almost total apathetic disinterest.
These men who died in World W T ars I and
II and Korea touch our lives more intimate
ly than the men of earlier wars, for there is
a personal sympathetic bond between them
.and us. They were our friends and neigh
bors, husbands and sweethearts, and there
should be for them the same affinity of col
lective compassion that we show the fallen
heroes of the Civil War.
This is not to lessen or minimize in any
degree those gallant men who fell on Civil
War battlefields, but to merely point up the
fact that Chowan County should commem
orate ALL of its heroic war dead. There
should be erected here in Edenton a monu
ment or bronze scroll inscribed with the
names of all of these men. For in so doing
we will symbolize what we all, no doubt, feel
jin our hearts, but which is yet an urgent duty
we have allowed to remain too long undone.
;; Not every time a man speaks in a loud
voice does he say something worth hearing.

the things that we would like to do if we had
The educators tell us that we can learn
from the past, but it can’t be done unless
'you are willing to read.
There are very few young men, starting
out in life, who do not believe that, within
rfew years, they will be rich.
Wouldn’t Edenton be a wonderful place in
[ijhkh to live if the “good neighbor” policy
were applied by all of pur citizens?

The Rocky Hock Orioles are organized and
have already started playing baseball and if
the attendance at the first two games is any
indication, it’s no telling how long they will
be able to play. The club went in the hole
for both games but, of course, we haven’t had
what can be termed baseball weather. Wal
lace Evans, manager, and Alvin Evans, presi
dent of the Orioles, are right much concern
ed about the support in way of attendance.
They believe the club can and will provide
good and interesting baseball during the sum
mer, but they must have attendance to meet
the expenses. The two officials are not es
pecially concerned about making any money,
hut they just cannot afford to put a team
on the field unless the gate receipts are suf
ficient to cover the actual expenses. Time
was when Edenton was a baseball hotbed and
when it was almost a holiday when a baseball
game was on tap. Os late years, however,
there has been many a ball game played when
the gate receipts hardly amounted to enough
to pay for the balls. The boys are anxious
to provide the great national pastime, so they
are hoping enough people will patronize the
games in order to make ends meet. Let’s
give ’em a hand.
In one of the many pieces of reading mat
ter reaching my desk, I noticed the follow
ing; “Man is the only animal that can be
skinned more than once.” Then, “What’s
money? Just something that brushes against
your fingers on its way to Washington” and
“giving to the church is like making love to
a widow—you can’t overdo it.” Still another,
“there’s nothing like a dish towel for wiping
that contented look off a married man’s
A reader of this column the other day gave
me the following item. Because I’m “in
cluded in that number.” here ’tis:
A PRAYER FOR OLDER PEOPLE
Father, Thou knowest I am growing older.
Keep me from becoming talkative and pos
sessed with the idea that I must express my
self on every subject. Release me from the
craving to straighten out everyone’s affairs.
Keep my mind free from the recital of end
less detail. Seal my lips when I am inclined
to tell of my aches and pains. Teach me the
glorious lesson that occasionally I may he
wrong. Make me thoughtful but not moody,
helnful but not bossy. With my vast store of
wisdom and experience, it seems a pity not
to use it all, but Thou knowest. Lord, that
I want to keep my friends until the end.
Ye editor sort of renigged this week in
getting out The Herald. While members of
The Herald crew were busy as bees the early
pan of this week, he was in Asheville attend
ing the Great. Council session of North Caro
lina Red Men. Os course attending long
drawn-out meetings and listening to some
long-winded “orators” is just about as tire
some as doing the hundred and one jobs ne
cessary to be done in getting out the paper.
About the only difference is that at the con
vention a fellow hears a lot of jokes—some
new and some so old they have whiskers.
Jaycees at their meeting Thursday night
were serv'd two different kinds of meals—
. steak and beans. The reason being that a
membership drive recently completed was the
deciding factor as to who ate what. The
winners in the drive and the new members
added wer p ved steaks, while those on the
losing =ide had to eat beans. At any rate
they all got a belly full.
Russell Bnntley, director of the Wake For
est News R"r n ’ii, sent in a large picture of an
old car on the Wake Forest College campus
which its owner, a senior, decided to charge
25 cents a smash rather than sell his auto to
a iunk dealer. Shown in the picture was
William Cook Griffin of Edenton, getting his
two bits’ worth by smashing in the headlight
with a large hammer. Griffin is a sophomore
who plans to major in physical education and

LINA, at the time of her commissioning

major offensive naval engagement in the

with battle support to the Guadalcanal
landings and continuing through the
Third Fleet operations against Japan, the
mighty “Showboat” earned 12 battle stars.

located on a 36-acre tract on the west bank
of the Cape Fear River near five well-trav

Carolina. Aside froth its inspirational, his
