J for the mid-century production ef The Duplin Story - thin year-
It bee had ito share of worries and headaches.' The appre
1 henslons have been great but as we approach opening night
.and reflect back over the past few weeks the Job hasnt been
early so touch as last year. Buring 1949 we were fighting The
Duplin Story for 8V4 months before opening night In fact the
fight started nearly a year before the beginning of the last
eight months. From day to day new problems presented them
selves that had to be overcome from the start' During 1958 we
at least knew how to solve the problems when they arose and
most 'of them were anticipated and the solving was already ;
. worked out before they actually presents themselves. , - .
Sam Byrd and Corwtn Rife have again done a bang-up Job.
They brought with them "Dusty" Walker from Charleston who
has been Rife's man Friday. O. P. Johnson, Falson McGow&b,
Oliver Stokes and Garland King have handled the 1950 pro
duction like they were veterans at the Job. - . .
The press and radio throughout the state, have been very
cooperative and I think right here we should pay special at
tention to the News and Observer.. Sam Ragan, Jack Riley,
and Herbert OHeefe of the staff of the N ft O have rolled up
their sleeves and went all out for us. The News and Observer
as well as all newspapers and radios have asked no financial
rename ration. Miss Gertrude Carraway of New Bern who was
again our feature writer has done a bang-up Job. i We were
fortunate In securing the services of Miss Carraway because
when a news story goes out with her name attached there are
no questions asked. They Just get printed. , Two more ladles
- who are entitled to special mention are Mrs. Elisabeth Swin
dell of the Wilson Daily Times and Mrs, Moff ett of the Fayette-
vtlle Observer. They have cooperated almost more' than could
-. .-.(

boarding houses, you could hardly
have a private quarrel In it There
would be some inquisitive people
who would notice when voices were
raited, and who could not resist
the' temptation to
listen. vr'-.
One of the quar
relers was none
other 'than the fa-:

Paul' and, Barnabas

Young people do not always real
ize -how often they are discussed
by their elders, or how much those
discussions-affect their lives. .. A
oung man applies for a job (which
he would jrather call a ."position")
and he either gets the job or he
does not But he never sees the
Hies, He never hears -the conver
sations aooui nunseii. , He . never
knows just what remark got him
the job or cost him the Job, as
the . case may be. So John Mark
may never have known just1 what
Paul and Barnabas said about him.
' The facta were ' plain. John
Mark was a native of Jems
iem, son of n woman at least
well-off enough to have a targe
house of her own. Be was some
i relative of Barnabas, , perhaps
- - nephew.' (Tradition aays he
f waa the young man In embar-
r rasing cireumstances describe! '
, in Mark M:51-S2.) When Paul
and Barnabas set off en their
1 first missionary Journey togefh
. er, this John Mark went with
. tkem aa general assistant :
"t All went well at first But when
the party landed on the hot steamy
Shore of Pamphylia, and when the
missionary expedition was about to
take off over the high lonesome
ranges through bandit country, John
Mark left the party and took the
first boat back to home and moth,

Barnabas wanted to take his young

the man than the record shows. "

receipts up about $400,000 more
than was expected last month. Rev

only attribute It to ."hysterical war

You can forget that dry dock at

things: lackadaisical 'attitude ' of
New Hanover county, which always
nas its nana out out doesn't seem
to want to help itself; fumbling by
ine state 'forts.Authority; and the
Navy's refusal to cooperate with a
retired Army Colonel (Col. George
Gillette), despite' all that talk
about unification, .
A $15,000 outlay would have
brought the drydock to Wilming
ton. Sii-v?-;.,--:,.:,,. ;
The Navy wasn't too hot about
the. idea of putting the drydock
In- Wilmington to start oft Sbip
bullders Wore opposed, too. But
the Governor pushed the Idea, and
after personal insistence of Sena
tor Frank Graham, President Tru
man intervened and the dock was
assured if the $13,000 could be
raised. The State did not want to
enter . private business, so rightly
felt it could not put up the money.
Despite their alleged desire to ex
pand, folks in New Hanover looked
the other way. i--
So Wilmington ean be assured
of. remaining a second rate port,
because ship owners are not going
to send their ships 38 miles Inland
unless their are repair facilities
available.- ','--.

The hunt is on because Coltrane

And the power' argument spot
lighted; last' week bids likely to
become the biggest political Issue
of the state. The Governor says
the state's power potential is great
but underdeveloped. He'Clalms in
dustry is parsing the State by be
cause of lark of power and that
hydro-electric, flrod control, wate
conservation dam? should be built
with federal funds.
' ''-v.,'."' ,fj '-
CP&L's Louis Sutton says tain':
so; that prlate power companies
are taking care of all needs ade
quately; that steiim, power is bet.
ter than hydro-electric; that in
dustry is not passing the state by
and that it's all , Just another at
tempt by the government to take
over private power companies.
But Sutton talks only about
power. Doesn't say anything about
flood control, other than It should
be done some other way, and he
doesn't even mention water con
servation. ' .
Up to now no one has come up
with any flood control, water con
servation plan that doesn't entail
government spending. If at the
same time power output can be
boosted, it would be foolish not to
do so..--;-' :'"... ,,c
Since North Carolina is one o:
the top states in payment of fed
eral taxes -- and on the short end
of the deal as far as federal money
spent in the State -- the Governor
and some others-, think it's time
some of those federal projects came
this way.
Anyway, It'll be a knockdown,
dragout fight. -
This weeks' report from Wash
ington, via the Tar Heel Capitol:
Direct controls affecting the farmer
-- on such items as farm imple
ments, fertilizer, etc.,' - - are not

The reported investigation ap- i has Put Its approval on poor mana
gement of the company,
' The raise is being paid by home
and store consumers, while indus
trial users, will get a slight cut
The amazing thing 'about the
whole action is that no where in
the many-paged report of its deci
sion Is any reason given for the
raise except "to allow Tidewater
to sell some' $2,000,000 in new
stock." " ,' - -
This two million bucks is need
ed, it was said, to "expand ser
vice" and to make repairs a lot
of which, the report said, have been
needed since the war when ma
terials were unavailable.
No one would fluarrel with an
expansion of service by Tidewater,
but is peculiar that it is One of the
few if not only - companies In
the country that did not build up
a reserve during the war to make
post-war repairs. Other companies,
unable to get materials during the
war, put aside the money that
wou,ld have . been spent if they.
Could and saved it for work after
the war ended.
Despite poverty pleas, Tidewater
has been able-to pay an average
dividend of one dollar a share for
at least the last two years.
The Commission's- refusal last
week to re-open the case, means
that the poor consumer will have
to go to court if he wants to fight
the raise further. And the Utilities
Commission is supposed to protect
the public! ' ..V
If the Utilities Commission
wants to do something, it could
either force Tidewater to give, its
consumers decent service at a de
cent price or make them sell to
someone who can. Since the com
pany buys 85 of Its power from
Carolina Power and Light Com
pany then resells it at a profit and
since CP&L's President Louis Sut
ton says his company has plenty
of. power, it looks as though that
would be the logical company to
serve the Tidewater area, anyhow.
Tidewater's poverty pleas surely
