liquor is not among the more
popular topics of general
conversation. There are those who
do, those who don’t and those who
really don’t give a hang Where the

real question to be answered,

emotional overtones written into

passage of this referendum would
mean open bars in North Carolina.
We do not think it would eliminate
those who drink and drive.
But we think it would tate a
considerable amount of control
away from the ABC system which
hasn’t been without its dirty linen.
In our opinion, the ABC system
has been highly successful in this
state, although from time to time a
black eye is uncovered.
While the ABC system is not

Chowan Farm Income Tops
Although farming and ranching
have not been the most lucrative
of occupations in recent years,
Chowan County’s agricultural
community has been making out
better than most, it appears.
The majority of local farmers
held their own last year and a
number of them, especially those
with well-equipped, commercial
size setups, ended up well ahead of
the previous year.
Credit for it is attributed to
record output, made possible by

That was the gross amount,
before deductions for operating
costs and taxes.
Included in it are the cash
receipts from the sale of farm
goods, together with government
payments and income in kind,

The increase, 10.2 per cent,
compares with a 8.4 per cent rise
in the State of North Carolina.
According to the most recent
figures from the Department of
Agriculture, approximately 62 per
cent of the total received locally
from the sale of farm products
came from the marketings of
crops and 38 per cent from
livestock, poultry and dairy goods.

Capt. Williams Paid Honor
Edenton Police Capt. C. H.
Williams is recipient of the Law
award in Chowan County. The
announcement was made Tuesday
night at the fourth annual
appreciation banquet sponsored
by Edward G. Bond Post 40,
C. A. Phillips, chairman,
Chowan County commissioners,
presented a handsome plaque to
the popular officer at the banquet
attended by more than 350 people.
Police Chief J. D. Parrish has
announced the employment of two
new patrolmen which brings the
local department up to only one
man below full strength. The new
policemen are Isaiah Sylvester
Brickhouse and David Glenn
Since joining the local
department both men have
attended the police training course
at Elizabeth City. The 160-hour
course is conducted by the College
of The Albemarle.
The men have also passed all
requirements of the N. C. Criminal
Justice Training and Standards
Brickhouse, 24, resides on West
Albemarle Street Extended with
his wife and one child. He is a
native of Washington County and
graduated from Tyrrell County
He was employed at Townson
Lumber Company prior to
becoming a policeman.
Lane, 20, resides at Cape
Colony. He is a native of Chowan
County and graduated from John
A. Holmes High School. He
formerly was employed at P&Q
were special guests for the
meeting held here last Wednesday
Dr. Phillips had praise for the
group’s singular attitude toward
problems in the area and the
solutions being sought; but he
added the groups should make all
moves “carefully and with
forethought’’. He cited the pulling
together of the elements of society
and government as one
outstanding aspect of the alliance.
“If you come to a new
understanding of the relationship
between the county government,
education, and community
services, you have made a great
stride,” he stated.

He said Capt. Williams is symbolic
of law enforcement in this area.
Capt. Williams joined the
Edenton Police Department in
October, 1961, and moved up
through the ranks. In November,
1967, he was promoted to his
present position and named

briefly took the wraps off North
Carolina’s “crime clock” to relate
the seriousness of crime in this
state. And because of their
responsibilities to curb crime, the
policeman was labeled by the
speaker as being “our most
versatile public servant”.
Unfortunately, he continued,
public understanding and support
for law enforcement and the
administration of criminal justice
is not what it ought to be. “Crime
prevention suffers from a lack of
public support,” he said.
Earlier the speaker, always a
big drawing card in the Edenton-
Chowan area, noted that the
policeman is expected to be all
things to all people. And, he said,
the police are the victims of a
basic conflict in our attitude
toward law enforcement. “On the
one hand, we demand law and
order...On the other hand, we
don't expect all of these laws to be
strictly enforced, at least not
against ourselves,” he added.

“You can count on our support
in the sense of services from the
State Department of Public
Instruction,” he said. He added in
this statement that the Alliance
for Progress will have the interest
and attention of educators and
funding agencies as they progress
in their plans. He advised the
group to seek the aid of legislators
and other influential persons in
securing money for the multi
