A LIFT FOR TODAY
Freely ye have received, freely give.
If W e returned in proportion to our blessings,
•we would return all, for all good comes from
God. Let us give ourselves in his service as
well as our material means.
Open our eyes afresh to Thy bounty, O Lord,
fpnd purge us of all self-seeking and withholding
of our possessions and our service to Thee.

Reflection On Voters
Tuesday’s election to decide a $289,000
school bond issue in Chowan County brought
.lout only 776 voters in the entire county to
.-'register their approval or disapproval of the
sale of this amount of bonds. There are
some over 2,000 voters in the county who
•tyere eligible to cast a ballot but only about
'one-third took enough interest to go to the
spoils to vote.
It is a reflection on the electorate when
such a small number of people take enough
f, interest to take time out to cast a ballot on
!»n issue that affects every taxpayer.
y Os course, the writer was in favor of the
bond issue and so voted for what is thought
fop be for the best welfare of the county
f schools and the children who are the county’s
It is not that the decision on the bond issue
jjnight have been different, but it is not such
healthy condition when so many people ap
parently are not interested in such an import
brit matter and fail to exercise their privilege
and in fact their duty to cast a ballot one way
or the other.
The bond issue was carried with only 776
, voters deciding the issue, when as a matter
| of fact at least twice that number should have
ftad not the voters been given an oppor
tunity to decide the matter and the $289,000
bond issue shoved down their throats, then,
•most likely, they would have a terrible howl.
opportunity to have a voice in the elec
tion of public servants and matters vitally
’‘concerning the community is taken all too
lightly by all too many citizens. It is a privi
lege to be able to express one’s opinion by
ijvay of the ballot and it is to be regretted that
c.so many people fail to take advantage of it.
, people in other parts of the world
%ould be tickled pink if they had a voice in
such matters. ' |
U Reigning Cats and Dogs
Every now and then the dog nuisance bobs
up at County Commissioners’ meetings, as
well as at meetings of Town Council. Be
cause of this fact, the following editorial tak
en from a recent issue of The Christian Sci
ence Monitor may be interesting:
There’s many a true word, or there-abouts.
spoken figuratively. Take for example the
report by the Humane Society of America:
There are 90.000,000 cats and dogs already
in the United States, and the downpour con
tinues at the rate of 165 a minute or 10,000
an hour. It makes the old saw about raining
*.cats and dogs more like an umbrella,
r Whenever it starts raining statistics the bit
ter end-to-enders come up like angleworms—
- and how many angles there are in any nu
’ merical proposition, only they can enumerate!
Ninety million cats laid end to end, they will
tell you, would nap. But mix the species and
even sleeping dogs, like figures, refuse to lie.
The Pied Piper of Hamelin was a monop
oly, according to the spokesman of Amalga
mated Rat Cat-chers of America, who are
at least 45,000,000 strong if you count only
the mews-paying members. But whenever a
case of foreign competition like this comes
up the union statistician points to the number
of terriers who also pursue the vocation dis
guised in cat’s whiskers.
£ Kipling’s cat, who walked alone, has evi
dently become just one of the crowd in the
■few Statistical State, and Carl Sandburg’s fog
N)as become a railliped. The man who can
Ifmd only one dog to bite is no longer news.
4 And when all those little dogs laugh at the
Jearoe moment, the cows and all the rest of us
*ump clear over the mopn. In a world where
the voice of the majority speaks ever with
new authority, 90,000,000 cats and dogs look
like a formidable bloc-—-divided only by pre
judices which they vot% with yaps vs. meows.

Hariry Smith, former executive vice presi

now living in Michigan, was among those who
were dunned for his renewal to The Herald.
Harry promptly sent in his check and had this
“Dear Busf —I do not believe a word you

Herald! All of which goes to show that
things can improve. I am happy to enclose
my check for $3.00
“It hardly seems like a year has gone by
since I left the delightful town of Edenton and
all our friends there. Time has gone by at a
fast clip here but Lillian and I are mindful of
the pleasant years with you all. Every week
we both look for The Herald and when it does
not arrive on Friday or Saturdays it seems
like we have lost a friend. Buff, I do think
you could improve the wrapper; sometimes it
is almost ripped off and we have missed sev
eral copies during the year.
“It is good to read of so many accomplish
ments in Edenton —acquisition of the airport,
improvements to Route 17, a new prespect
for industry. The Woman’s Club did a won
derful job with the Pilgrimage and despite
the fuss, I think the moving of the monument
was a definite improvement for the over-all
development of the Court House. Little by
little, these are the things which will all help
Edenton in the years to come. The airport,
especially, should be promoted to the full ex
tent to take advantage of its wonderful loca
tion in northeastern North Carolina. Keep
up the good work.
“We are busy promoting and sanctioning
power boat races around the country. June
through September are really active months
and keep us tied to the office. Detroit is al
so busy right now—auto production is good
and Walter Reuther is dickering with the
companies for new contracts. As large as De

industry, so I hope negotiations turn out satis

last week when he dropped in The Herald of

announcement of a meeting of the Women’s
Society of Christian Service of the Methodist
Church and although his coat pocket was
bulging out with cigars, he was so excited he
forgot to pass me one. I didn’t know at the
time that shortly before he had become the
pappy of a daughter or he would have left
the office with one cigar less.
Mrs. Irma Allsbrook was strutting around
late last week wearing a beautiful new wrist
watch. She won the watch in a drawing at
the recent beauty show held at Virginia Beach
and was delivered last week. The watch, a

it read $99.50. The prize included a band

Well about the loudest news in the Center

of the farmers have in their fields. In fact
the bloomin' guns kicked up so much fuss

W OR DUST
Controls peanut leaf spot
Now you can use Dithane M-22 as a spray or dust
to control peanut leaf spot. This superior fungi
cide, so widely used for disease control in many
fruits and vegetables, is highly effective against
peanut leaf spot. Dithane M-22 dust or sprays are
non-irritating to the operator, and it is safe on
foliage when used as recommended* Conventional
low-volume sprayers can be used for applying
Dithane M-22 sprays. y
Dithane M-22 has been used successfully by
growers in all the important peanut growing greas.
"Excellent leaf spot control... healthier plants..,
much easier to use... higher yields of better-quality
peanuts ... ”, these are typical comments from
growers. Dithane M-22 is compatible with all
your insecticides. Dithane M-22 protects foliage
from leaf spot even during rainy weather because
' of its tenacity on the leaves.
Peanut leaves are difficult to wet. To obtaji
maximum coverage and performance from
Dithane M-22, add Triton B-J956 to all yous
j sprays. See your dealer for additiopal information
• on Dithane M-22 for peanut leaf spot control.
