"The Duplin Story" opened last
night with a bang. A small crowd
saw the opening performance.
Some placed the number of paid
attendance from 500 to 1000; one
man said there were at least 2,000.
At this writing the ticket booths
had not been checked but it seem
ed a general average of opinion
as to the attendance would be
placed at somewhere between 1500
and 2000. Considering the weather
officials were well pleased with the
crowd. At one time yesterday there
was a question as to whether or
not the show would attempt to
Throughout Thursday the skies
continued to threaten. In mid-afternoon
a light misty rain set in but
just before dusk it stopped. Winds
picked up late in the evening but
died down considerably before
curtain time. As the show progres
sed the weather progressed. About
intermission time the stars came
out. It was neither cold nor hot. No
bugs or flies to disturb the audi
ence. The wind quieted to the
point where there was no fear
about the curtains or props being
disturbed. The wind interfered
with the sound system some
throughout the play. Weather pre-'
dictions are that the skies will
clear during Friday and perfect
weather will prevail for the re
maining four showings.
The cast took the job in stride.
In spite of the fact that the weath
er has permitted no full dress re
hearsal the show was said to be
better than any performance last
year. Sam Byrd. 4flough tired and
worried, was at: his eak. Pat Bo
lam and "Timmy'Uu law were
both definitely Vbetter 'ban last
year JotAAMttHtoit JoSinson a ,fl
Helen Brown, ' in '""the WWfnaw
scene, were exceptionally good, as
was "Dusty" Walker in the battle
field scene. Rev. L. C. Prater,
playing Henry McCulloch, stood
out again this year. The square
dancers were on the job as were
the British Red Coats
Rifles, acted out this year by Du
plin County high school boys, did
their job like veterans. The James
Sprunt Institute scene showed
more life and interest. Edith Hln
nant Dickerson again captivated
the audience with "Yes, Indeed."
All in all the entire cast did a
much finer job than at any show
ing last year. The choir was not
up to par. A large part of the
trouble was in the organ and the
wind was disturbing the sound
At intermission Governor Scott,
Congressman Graham A. Barden
and Willie Clark of Tarboro were
recognized by Vance Gavin and
Editor Bob Grady called on Edit-,
ors Jonathan Daniels and Carl
