DOES ADVERTISING PAY?
oOo —- —
We are firm believers in advertising- of the
right sort in the right way. The late publicity ca
valcade that rode through the State from the
mountains to the sea was just about the biggest
flash and greatest waste of public money in many
a day outside the various Federal spending agen
cies. Wining and dining seems to have been the
biggest feature of the whole affair. In Asheville
the outstanding fact was that champagne cock
tails were served and “food was preceeded by
drink through Eastern Carolina.’’ Such pub
licity is not what North Carolina needs, but
rather such as will bring the sensible and sober
sort of folks to our bounds.

OUR TOWN BOARD
As stated sometime ago, we believe our pres
ent town commissioners are doing their best to
give Zebulon a good town government. It ap
pears that in the past the collection of back taxes
was neglected. Our present Board is doing its
best to collect all such taxes. Also, we understand,
they are doing their best to adjust a burdensome
and embarrasing debt. The citizens of the town
should give their loyal support to these men who
are trying to give Zebulon a better and more
OUR LATE LOCAL FAIR
__ We suppose the type of midway features in
our local fair was like those seen at other fairs
of the same sort. But, a man in our office a few
days ago told about going into one of these
shows and seeing women as naked as Eve when
fresh from the hand of her Maker. We had the
same sort of thing at the carnival last year, and
some of the best (?) people of the community
went into such shows. Os course women and chil
dren were not admitted. We prefer not to express
our opinion of men who patronize such places.
However, we hope the town authoritis will see to
it next year that such spectacles are kept out of
