REAL CAUSE TO PROTEST
The Vietnam war protesters—
from hippy to college professor
to baby doctor —speak of Ameri
ca’s effort to defend South Viet
nam as immoral. The fact that
there is no similar protest of Ho
Chi Minh’s tens of thousands of
murders in the north, and his
thousands of terrorists murders
of some of South Vietnam’s fin
est citizens, implies that these
are not necessarily immoral acts.
These protesters must use a dic
tionary vastly different from
Ther* is one reasonable protest
that could be made, yet none has
voiced it. It is the criticism that
the government failed to heed
expert advice offered early in
William D. Pawley, who had
extensive business experience in
the Far East, and who served as
U. S. Ambassador to Peru and
Brazil, told a Senate committee
in 1960, under oath, that he had
been verv close to President Tru
man and that only six months be
fore the Korean War he told the
President that if he did not “sup
port with tremendous effort the
Nationalist movement . . . China
will be lost and you will have a
war on your hands in Burma,
Indochina, or Korea within one
year and you will either commit
America or you will lose Asia ...
There are millions . . . willing to
fight for their freedom who
don’t have enough to eat and
who can be recruited and made
into marvelous soldiers. You can
do it for 10 cents on the dollar to
what it would cost you if you do
have to use Americans.”
Well, we had Korea, where we
declined to win. We negotiated.
Now we have Vietnam, and we
are negotiating. On Formosa,
the Republic of China maintains
the largest and best-trained non-
Communist army in Asia. But
that armv is immobilized by the
Mutual Defense Treaty. South
Korea’s army, second in numbers
and training in all of Free Asia,
has furnished troops in South
Vietnam, but its main force is
required to defend against viola
tions of the armistice negotiated
Not one of the vociferous
critics has criticized the govern
ment of the United States for
failing to follow Pawley’s obvi
ously sound counsel to develop
a defense against Communism
manned by Asians —a course
which would negate the silly
claim that it is a war of color,
or race, or imperialism. Having
done so, we wouldn’t have 25.000
Americans dead in South Viet
(PoiPi. a budget deficit of
The failure to heed Pawley is
a valid cause for protest.

An interesting visitor in The Herald of
fice early this week was James Vernon
White, who now lives at Itargo, Fla. Tom,
as I always called him, was working at
the old Edenton Daily News when I came
to Edenton back in 1923. Friend Tom, who
bettered himself by landing some sort of
government job in Washington, D. C., is
now retired and was telling me about the
wonderful fishing down in his neck of the
woods. After telling me about some of
his catches, which I took as a grain of
salt, he pulled out some pictures showing
him holding big bunches of groupers and
sheepshead. He has been trying to get me .
to visit him, and his visit this week, me
thinks, has made me one step nearer
spending part of a vacation at Largo.
Anyway, it was fun recalling some of the
happenings at the old Edenton Daily
News when R. G. Shackell was the big
At this writing it appears that the
weatherman is looking with favor on the
Chowan County Fair. Needless to say, a
group of persons have put in a lot of long
and hard work to stage the fair and, of
course they’re hoping that large crowds
will go out to see the exhibits and enjoy
some time on the midway.
In this week’s Herald you’ll see the new
1969 model automobiles advertised. It’s a
lot of fun and causes a lot of wishes to
look at new models, but if you don't want
to buy one, better not listen to the sales
men who say, “Get in and drive it a
little.” That’s about the best selling point
these salesmen have, and it’s sort of hard
to “break down” after driving one of the
With the feel of fall in the air, members
of the Methodist Men’s Club will begin
their monthly pickled herring breakfasts
at the church. The first one of the sea
son will be held next Saturday morning,
October 5. The “cooks” will have an
ample supply of herring on hand and will
be delighted to serve a large crowd. And,
by the way, a person can eat all they
want for one buck.
Chowan County Shriners were very
elated over the success of their recent fish
fry, as the result of which S9OO was turned
over for the Shriners’ crippled children’s
hospitals. A large facsimile of the check,
drawn by Mrs. Ruth Shackelford, is now
on display in Mitchener’s Pharmacy. And
with it are a number of pictures taken at
the hospitals. Take a look at them and
get a feeling of satisfaction that all who
cooperated in the fish fry not only got a
“square meal,” but also made a contribu
tion toward helping unfortunate children
to walk. Which goes to show that a heart
sometimes is bigger than a stomach. Take
a look in the Mitchener’s Pharmacy win
Last week I gave credit where credit
was not due. I said the folks at First'Na
tional Bank of Eastern North Carolina had
taken off the hands of the clock at the
comer of their building. However, Chuck
Benson tells me the hands fell off of their
own accord. Anyway, Izzy Campen for
many years was the “clock maker go,”
but he’s passed from the scene. So that
Chuck would like to get up with some
body who can put the clock in p.oper op
eration. Anybody want the job? Well,
just contact Chuck Benson.
Again Edenton is losing two very valu
able families. It’s because Mr. and Mrs.
Britton Byrum are moving to Norfolk and
Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Dale will be making
their home in Greenville. Britton will be
missed by the Rotarians, where he has
been sergeant-at-arms, as well as the en
tertainment he provided on numerous oc
casions with his little son. Then Rudolph
will be missed Friday nights at the foot
ball games, where he has called the game
over the loudspeaker. Rudolph has also
taken an active part in various civic af
fairs, so that Edenton will miss these .two
families very much. Here’s wishing them
happiness and success in their new loca
Again we hear of an Edenton boy mak
ing a name for himself. A. Ray Roger
son has been promoted to assistant vice
president of Cameron-Brown Company,
mortgage brokers at Charleston, S. C. Ray
will be remembered as the tall end for
Edenton Aces on some of their best foot
ball teams, when he had the knack of
snatching a lot of passes.
Report On Trip
Four Edentonians, Dr. Richard Hard
in, Joseph Thorud, Ernest Kehayes and
Rev. George B. Holmes, have recently
returned from a visit to Saint Barnabas’
Mission, Minto, Alaska.
The story of this Athabascan Indian
Village known to Rev. Frederick B.
Drane, who spent some time in the area
and of which is now in charge of Rev.
Thomas C. Kehayes will be presented.
It is hoped that Mrs. Kehayes, wife
of the missionary and nurse for the
village will be present to answer ques
tions. She is visiting Mr. and Mrs. Er

in time some artifacts will be displayed.
The artifacts are now aboard the plqn»

in Alaska” where repairs are being made
before its return to Edenton.
Any interested persons are cordially
invited to attend with the assurance that
die presentation will be contained with
in the period of an hour. The time is
7:30 Sunday. The place is the Parish
House of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church
on Gale Street.

Getting citizens to approve bonds to
provide services to others which they
already enjoy isn’t always the easiest
thing in the world. It took two trips
to the polls to get approval of a new
sewage treatment plant and a like num
ber of jaunts to secure a new hospital.
The projects which are now on the
drawing board are equally as important
as the other two. Edenton and Chowan
County are enjoying steady growth and
water and sewer systems are necessary
evils where the town treasury is concern
ed. But they are services which must
be kept in step with others that make
our community attractive.
