The picture you see above was
taken by Rev. J. G. Morrison just
as the doors of Duplin Mercantile
Company were thhrown open on
their 1948 sale. People thronged
the store all day long and havo
continued, to do so since. It is tns
biggest sale ever to be put on in
Kenansvllle. and accordins to of
ficials of the company, it has been
justifiable, from the standpoint oi
savings to the public as well as
worth while to the firm. Paul In
gram, manager of the store, states
that thev have received a nice
shipment of electrical appliances
that are ideal for Christmas. The
store is still chock full of mer

Tom Miller Is Planning To Visit Home;
First Timein Over Twenty-live Years
On Mnndav. Dec. 6th. the first
Monday in December - all elected
and appointed officers of the coun
ty were sworn in. For the County
Commissioners the first thing on
th affenda was the last meeting
of the Board which had held office
for the past two years. This Board
met and wound ud its business with
Mr. George D. Bennett, Chairman,
presiding. Among other things it
accepted: the resignation oi rax.
vinro B. Ravin as County Attor
ney. In accepting the resignation
of Mr. Gavin the Board passed me
following resolution and a copy,
'hearing the seal ef the County, was
given to Mr. Gavin. It read as fol
Before The Board of
Four of the Miller boys from
Miller-Town, near Beulaville, have
recently enjoyed a trip covering
parts of N. C, S. C, Ga., Miss., Ala.,
and Fla. They are Norwood- Her
man, Andrew, and Gordon Miller.
They drove. The purpose of their
trip was to visit their uncle. D. St.
(better known in Duplin a Tom)
Miller who lives in Columbus, Miss,
a sizeable town. Mr. "Tom" has not
been back to Duplin in about 28
years. He is 78 years old and very
active for his age. He is the son of
William Hill Miller and Elizabeth
Hall MUler, natives of the Miller
Town section of Duplin County..
He left Duplin at the age of 25. For
some time he lived in South Caro
lina, then went to Alabama where
he worked for Tom Maxwell, an
other son of Duplin, in the furni
ture business. Later he moved to
Columbus. Miss. He has had suc
cess there and he and his family
are well known and respected.
The Miller boys left home on
v 29 in Norwood's car. They
sed through Columbia, Atlanta,
1 mirihara, Tuscalloosa and ar
rived at Columbus. Miss, on Nov.
30. There they spent two days and
uiBhts with their uncle and then
proceeded to Beloxi, Miss., Mobile,
. to Paaola. Ala., where a large
shipyard is stationed on the Gulf
of Mexico; back to Tallahassee. Fla.
Jacksonville, Fla., Savannah, Ga.,
Charleston, S. C, to Wilmington,
N. C, and on in home. In short
they followed a coastal route from
the Gulf to Wilmington.
They are expecting a visit from
"Mr. Tom" the latter part of April.
No doubt great festivities will be
nut on for this occasion. (It's a
.pity Mr. Lawton couldn't be hero
for the occasion).
Ed. Note: We are bound to add
this - the Miller family is really a
credit to the county. We arc all
proud of them.
The DUPLIN TIMES went on
the air last Sunday from Clinton.
For the next 13 weeks we will be
on the air from Clinton, Goldsboro,
Kinston, WPTF in Raleigh and the
new News and Observer FM Station
in Raleigh. At this hour of writing
we do not recall the number of the
News It Observer station and we
ddh't know the hour the broadcast
will go on. But WKNS in Kinston
and the Clinton Radio stations will
go on at 2:15 P.M. each Sunday.
John Sikes of Wallace is doing
the broadcasting. The whole pro
gram is being sponsored by the
Duplin Times. Keep your radios
Just what John is going to say,
we have no idea. We are leaving
the entire idea and script up to
him. Let's listen in and see bat
John can develop in the interest of ,
Duplin County. It stands to reason
that a newspaper should be jealous
of a radio station, but we don't
see it that way. We feel we must
move along with the trend of the
times. So, as a news caster, and an
advertising solicitor, we feel, we
must cooperate with the radio sta
tions and they are cooperating
with us. The idea is, as we reporters ,;
see it, to get the news and adver

One by one the days slip by, we
approach mid-December. In addi
tion to the holiday seasen. we arc
also entering into a three-week's,
period made up of the shortest
days of the year. It is this combina
tion that too often turns what
should be Joyful December into
Deadly December as far as traffic
accidents ore concerned. According
to the Carolina Motor Club, the
hustle and bustle of Christmas
shopping, participation in the holi
day festivities and longer hours of
darkness, all are factors which con
tribute to a traffic fatality record

has beeome one of the most deadly
months of the year. First of all,
there is the "street ostrich." He is
one who nevcrs heeds the advice,
avoid the rush - - do your shopping
for Christmas early. Like the ost
rich that hides his head in tne
sand, thinking it safe, our late
shrmner - - his arms oiled high with
parcels and his bead buried in Ms
coat collar, dashes into a ousy uw
roughfare. A few seconds later, to
the tune of screeching brakes and
a dull thud,, he has become just:

that window shopping should be
done from the side walk and not
from behind Steering' wheel.
