. my commandments; love one another
as I have loved you.— John 15:12.
This commandment, if followed, would

Chief Justice Earl Warren’s
somewhat equivocal resignation
from his high post, and the ten
tative appointment of man-serv
ant Abe Fortas by President
Johnson, has occupied the press
and the Senate for days now.
Reviewing the court’s decisions
over the past 15 years isn t pos
sible in the space we have, and
nothing we could say would im
prove on the language of the
Conference of State Chief Jus
tices 10 years ago. By a vote of
36 to 8, that conference approved
the following resolution in 1958:
“That this conference while rec
ognizing that the application of
constitutional rules to changed
conditions must be sufficiently
flexible to make such rules
adaptable to altered conditions,
believes that a fundamental pur
pose of having a written consti
tution is to promote the certainty
and stabilitv of the provisions of
law «et forth in such a constitu
Nor is it possible in this short
space to make a projection of the
decisions which Mr. Fortas may
find it necessary to make. Two,
only, reouire mention in passing.
Mr. Fortas’ career is one of bu
reaucrat. lobbyist., corporation
lawyer and presidential legman.
Never a judge. Ultimately, the
Supreme Court is going to have
to face up to the task or ruling
on the leealitv of the Vietnam
War, and the legality of forcing
businessmen to collect taxes for
the government, without reim
bursement of costs of so doing.
His admitted participation in
consultations on Viptnam deci
sions in the White House raise
the Question, at least, as to
whether or not he can properly
sit in judgment on the legality
of that war. As to the tax
withholding (and collecting)
business, perhaps the Question
should be asked if he would hear
such an appeal, as the Warren
Court was not willing to do.
As to t,h« controversy the ap
pointment has caused, we think
Congress might consider taking
/ some action under Article 111,
Section 2. paragraph 2 of the
Constitution, if it doesn’t like
the composition or the decisions
of the court. The paraoraoh
reads: “In all cases affecting
ambassadors, other public min
isters, and consuls, and those in
which a state shall he party, the
Supreme Coure shall have orig
inal jurisdiction. In all other
cases before mentioned the Su
preme Court shall have aopellat o
jurisdiction both as to law and
fact, with such exceptions and
under such regulations as the
Congress shall make.”

Jr., 17, and his juvenile companion, were

the larceny of gas from two vehicles.
j "By Buff
Two very interesting addresses were un
corked in Edenton last week, both of which
provided much food for thought. The first
was made Thursday afternoon at the Rotary
Club’s meeting when Reece B. Gardner of
Kinston spoke. Though he is the Repub
lican candidate for Congress from the First
North Carolina District, he' evaded a poli
tical talk such as "if I’m elected I’ll do so
and so” or “I’ll appreciate your vote in
November.” Instead he painted a very
true picture of conditions as they exist
in this country today, which should make
ail of us sit up and take notice—whether
we are a Democrat or Republican or one
of those who do not bother to vote for
men in public office.
The other address was delivered at the
annual Chamber of Commerce banquet at
the Chowan Golf and Country Club Thurs
day night by Ray A. Killian of Charlotte,
vice president and personnel and public
relations officer for the Belk stores. Mr.
Killian also painted a vivid picture of con
ditions in Edenton and Chowan County as
regards merchandising, prosperity and
growth. His address, too, pointed out vari
ous things which must be done if Edenton
is to make the progress as it should and
can be made. His address was taken seri
ously and, no doubt, the Chamber of Com
merce will see to it that all possible will be
done to bring about the sort of town Mr.
Killian thinks it should be.
With almost 200 people attending the
Chamber of Commerce banquet, it took
quite a while for those present to serve
themselves buffet style. So as the first
ones reached the table, Bob Moore made a
good suggestion that they begin eating be
fore the food got cold. And that’s what
they did. However, one of the guests
asked, “Don’t we have to wait for the
blessing?” But another guest piped up,
“No, we’ll have the blessing after the meal
to ask that none of us will have indiges
tion.” Anyway, the banquet was a very
pleasant affair and with Billy Bunch at
the helm as president, the outlook appears
very bright for another successful and pro
gressive year for our Chamber of Com
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Jackson, who own
and operate a fishing pier at Carolina
Beach, were in Edenton a day or two last
week. Os course. I had to ask Tom how
fishing was in his neck of the woods. But
from his response, I took it that the pier
fishing down that way isn’t very much
better than the last few trips to the piers
I’ve made this summer.
Little Paul Gregory Amburn, one of the
cutest little fellows in town, is another
one of us who likes to eat and usually
about meal time he asks his mother “What’s
lor lunch?" He no doubt has his, lunches
designated, for one day last week when it
was getting a little late and the sun was
fust fading in the west he asked, “What’s
for dark lunch, Mom?"
I've had my say about the mini skirts,
and now what puzzles me is how in the
dickens some women (and young fellows,
too) manage to get into and out of slacks
or pants which look more like tights acro
bats wear than anything else.
Another Herald subscriber, no doubt,
realizes the selling power of Herald clas
sified ads. Last week Mrs. C. H. Small
placed a classified ad to sell canning and
preserving pears. She ordered it to appear
two times, but early this week she called
to cancel the second insertion because she
had sold all the pears she had for sale.
Just another reminder that the Metho
dist Men’s Club will put on their first
pickled herring breakfast next Saturday
morning from 7 to 9 o’clock. There’ll be
plenty of herring on hand, so that those
who like to eat (but not cook at home)
pickled herring, here’s your chance to get
a square meal for only one buck.
Mrs. Josiah Elliott, who now lives at
Fayetteville, dropped me a letter saying
she enjoyed reading the paragraph in this
column about the old Edenton Academy
and reminded me that her husband, the late
Josiah Elliott, also attended the academy.
Incidentally, Mrs. Elliott sent a program
cf a play in the Edenton school back on
April 15, 1926, which is 42 years ago. It
might be interesting to note those who
took part in the play, “Cinderella In Flow

this might well say “My, how time flies.”
In line with my opinion about retiring
is the following editorial in a medical bul
Retiring people just because they are 65
years old is like killing a race horse be
cause he won a race. Very few of those
less than 65 years old are experienced in
their field as those who are past 65 and
working in our particular job. All of us
have lost a lot simply because someone in
an ill considered moment selected 65 as an
age for ending rather than ah age for com
mencement. The world is a lot better off
because five men lived and worked be
yond the age of 65— Herbert Hoover, Ber
nard Baruch, Albert Schweitzer, Douglas
McArthur and Winston Churchill. The
world is better off, too, for the great work
done by J. C. Penny, Will Durant Harry
Truman and Ike Eisenhower.
Edenton’s Aces had their hands full Fri
day night, but came out on the long end
of an 18-13 score. That makes 1-1 in con

further still, it strengthens the case for
a by-pass of Edenton.
Such a by-pass has been endorsed by
everyone in Edenton but the oil dealers,
yet it is no further along than it was
several years ago.
While someone, somewhere plays poli
tics with the plan, maybe Ted Rollins
and his College of the Albemarle crowd
could come up with an adult course in
how to maneuver through and learn to
live with the “improvements”.
All Not Lost
Cancer will eventually strike one in
four persons now living in America! This
is a frightening statement.
But, cancer can be fought.
Fourteen persons died in Chowan
County last year and 20 cases of cancer
will be diagnosed this year. Os these,
one-half could be saved by early diag
The support cf the current Chowan
County Cancer Crusade is needed for re
search, education and service. Mrs.
Kenneth Floars is service chairman and
has at her disposal much to aid those
who are victims of this principal cause
of death in America.
The aim of the service program is to
fight to prevent death and to relieve the
suffering and distress caused by cancer.
This service includes funds for transpor
tation to hospitals, housekeeping helpers,
drugs, loan closet supplies and nursing
service in the home.
Much emphasis is being placed on re
search for only through this means can
a cure be found. The American Can
cer Society has reorganized its research
for a strategic attack on key objectives.
The intent is to zero in on targets that
are promising, that can bring immediate
help to patients and that can result in
saving more lives in the near future.
Cancer plays no favorites. By edu
cating the public to heed warning sig
nals and encouraging health check-ups,
the society has saved many lives.
Research, education and service costs.
Through the Cancer Crusade all three
areas can be advanced.
