t f Restoring Harmony
4 The Edenton-Chowan Good
Neighbor Council is working with
determination and dispatch to
restore peace and harmony along
the Public Parade.' While they
have not made banner headlines,
the members have shown that true
leadership exists in this
community wtyere race relations
have been exceptionally fine over
the years.
It is quite unfortunate that a
small minority of our Negro
citizens have been misguided;
some of them to the extent of
running afoul of the law. This is
contraty to the harmonious
atmosphere which the majority of
all citizens find so enjoyable.
Desegregation Os public schools
along the Public Parade was
accomplished in a most desirable
manner. Tempers often flared, but
this did not influence educators; it
I did not create a climate which
* caused a detour from their real
purpose—providing the best
education possible for all the
children put in their charge.
There are, undoubtedly those
who were disappointed with the
smoothness of the educational
transformation in Edenton-
Chowan Schools. This is probably
an underlying cause for the
unnecessary disturbances now
being experienced.
It has been proven in the past
that the citizens along the Public
Parade have an unwaivering
confidence in the Edenton-Chowan
Board of Education. Therefore,
here is no reason now to doubt
hat this board will do anything
ess than what the members

Carrier Retires
Nathan Dail has traveled nearly
500,000 in miles delivering the
on Route 3, Edenton. Friday
he retires after 34 years on the
same rural route.
Postmaster James M. Bond said
Dari’s employment at the Edenton
Post Office began on December 1,
1937, when he became a substitute
clerk-carrier—the only one on the
local office at the time.
In November, 1939, Dail
transferred to the rural route,
replacing R. T. Harrell, Sr., who
moved over to the Route 2 when
the late J. J. Long retired.
At the time, Route 3 was 31 miles
in length and had 199 boxes. Today
it covers 4{! miles and has 383
boxes. But one of the biggest
transformations, according to
Dail, has been the highway

miles of paved road when he
started, now he has only about the
same amount of unpaved

WANTED! Students In Classrooms
The Edenton-Chowan Board of
Education on Wednesday
afternoon took affirmative stepn to
curb absenteeism, while showing
a willingness to allow students to
make up work missed during the
recent boycott.
All students who do not return tc>
school by Friday morning, and do
not have a reasonable excuse, will
face disciplinary action. The
board places the responsibility on
the student to exercise initiative
with his teachers to make up
school work.
Following is the complete text of
the board’s statement:

Albema*rle Cooperative
Association and its Albemarle
Marketing division, reports that
1,410 feeder pigs were brought to
the market last Thursday. “If this
continues it will require weekly
sales instead of two sales per
month,” Parker said.
“This is the maximum number
of pigs that can be handled at one
sale,” he continued. “I would have
predicted it would take six months
to reach 1,000 pigs and they went
to 1,400 in the sixth sale.”
Parker said another unique
thing about the Albemarle sale is
that pigs are being produced in the
area, sold here and bought to be
feed out in the area.
Also, he is pleased that farmers
are becoming more quality
conscious. “They are watching
how the pigs are graded and are
producing better pigs as a result,”
he said.
Gene Nixon, cooperative
manager, said some 140 different
producers have sold here. He said
the good sales which have been
experienced thus far have focused
attention on the cooperative and
th*e organization is gaining new
Pete Thompson, county
extension chairman, said a lot of
big producers right here in
Chowan County have “not hit the
local sale yet” and when this
happens more quality pigs will go
on the block.

“Students returning to school by

Since exams and graduation are
