A NEW BREAST FORM
FOR WOMEN WHO
DESIGNED TO BE
WORN IN AN
This new form is in two sections: a foam
rubber pad and a fluid-filled form . . .
important because the chest area often
is made slightly concave by surgery. The
foam pad brings that part of the chest
level with fhe normal side; fluid-filled
part approximates the curve of the
remaining bosom. The breast form
moves naturally with the body; closely
resembles a natural bosom.
Who cares? We do.

ROCKY MOUNT - The Ebeneza Missionary Baptist
Church here has launched an effort to halt the construction of
an apartment building adjoining the present church on Raleigh
Road in the Little Raleigh section of Rocky Mount.
The site of the proposed apartment complex splits property
owned by the church and where future plans have been
developed to erect a new sanctuary to replace the sixty year
old present structure.
The Ebeneza Church has a membership of more than 400
and is headed by the Rev. Thomas Walker.
In a statement to The Carolina Times last week, the local
minister pointed but that the builder, Albert Rabil, was legally
right in placing the building on property he (Rabil) owned, but
in his opinion and those of his congregation, it was morally
Pickets, protesting the construction began early Saturday
morning and had grown to a large group by noon. There was
no violence or demonstrations connected with the picketing
which is expected to continue until a settlement is reached.
Signs carried by the pickets read: "Lord, please stop them
from building here' . "This building will hinder our future
growth' . "Whom do you expect to rent these apartments" and
"Our church does not want this apartment here".
When Rabil appeared on the scene Saturday morning he
simply smiled and left. He had no comments.
The Rev. Walker and several members of his Board of
Trustees had negotiated with Rabil for several weeks and had
suggested a swap of nearby property to head-off the
construction of an apartment complex. Their effort failed.
'There was an uneven swap," Walker stated, on the part of
Rabil and his church would not ' buy' such a deal.
The local pastor further pointed out that his church was
still willing to negotiate to bring about a cordial agreement.
Rabil is considered a wealthy man and owns a shopping
center in the Little Raleigh community. The Rev. Walker fell
short of proposing a boycott on the merchants in the shopping
center. He say, however, they were not going to stop their

Miss Shelia Pulley, a senior at Rocky Mount Senior High
School, was crowned "Miss Black Eleganza' here last Monday
night. The coronation was a part of ' Black Eleganza' program
sponsored by the Beta Zeta Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma
Rho Sorority in connection with the observance of Black
The program also, was one in a series of events leading to
the annual Debutante Ball to be staged here Friday evening,
March 12, which is also sponsored by the sorority.
Other winners in the contest were Miss Alice Faye Brown
of Tarboro, first runner-up and Miss Deborah Pittman of
Rocky Mount, second runner-up.
Twenty-eight young ladies who have registered as
debutantes for the annual event, participated in the Black
Eleganza. The theme for the program was, ' Voices of Black
America", and featured the nation's celebration of the
. ,wThe4ljrospecti5te0debutau.tQS opencyUhe program Witha',
"ttrthHBicrrfennMt, This is Wytf arttfeorfcruded
with "Battle Humn of the Republic' .
The narrator, was Mrs. Vivian Tillman, who also write the
script for the Eleganza. Mrs. Genotre Penny is basileus of the
local chapter of the sorority.
A community "eye sore' , Unity Cemetery here, is about to
undergo a clean-up, fix-up face lifting project if plans are
approved by the Rocky Mount City Council
The cemetery, which is privately owned and for a long
period of time was the only burial site for Negroes here. The
City did not provide a site for the last resting place for Negroes
until approximately twenty years ago.
Many efforts by various citizen groups have attempted to
get the City to take some action concerning the condition of
the area, but due to legal responsibilities and rights, nothing
has ever been done.
Mrs. Claretta Wright has been spearheading a new group of
interested local citizens along with the Rev. George W. Dudley,
black councilman, things are beginning to show signs of
Mrs. Wright and her citizens committee appeared before the
Council's Committee of wholes, which is the City Council not
in session as prescribed by the City Charter, several weeks ago
and pointed out to the committee that the unkept cemetery
was an "eye sore" and a disgrace to the citizens of Rocky
Mrs. Wright went on to state that many of Rocky Mount's
older citizens were buried there and the condition of the
cemetery was a discredit to them. She also noted that with the
increase of crime in the area, the unkept cemetery was
becoming a harbor for crime and other unwanted activities.
Mayor Fred Turnage appointed a committee to be headed
by Councilman Dudley and two other councilmen, along with
... the City Manager and his staff, Mrs. Wright and membersof her
citizen's group to conduct an investigation on the site and
report immediately to the City Council.
Walter "Buck' Leonard, Rocky Mount's contribution to
Baseball's Hall of Fame and vice president of the Rocky
Mount Baseball Club, was given a standing ovation when he
was introduced to the supporters of the Peninsular Pilots at
Hampton, Va., last Friday.
The Peninsular team, previously had been based in Rocky
Mount as a farm team of the Philadelphia Phils, but due to a
decrease in attendance the Philadelphia parent team decided to
take its team to Hampton. .
During a Boosters luncheon at the Chamberlain Hotel in
Hampton, were an expected crowd of approximately five
hundred members of the Booster's Club were to meet with
league and Philadelphia officials, the return of professional
baseball to the Peninsular area was described as "A New
Beginning'". Only an estimated one hundred showed up for the
Leonard explained during an interview that the Rocky
Mount franchise had not been moved, but would remain in
Rocky Mount. The problem, he added, there are no baseball
players available. The major league clubs own them all, he
