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.

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, er. -i.'vi...f' "'. - .1 aieigh,vN.

Aix HTE HAVE no idea why he went Maybe he had good reasons, maybe, not Anyway, we do know that ha quit And that was all Paul wanted to inow. A new missionary party was being made up, and Barnabas wanted to take his young relative along again. But Paul could not see It- - : " Why take man who had al- . ready fallen down on one Job?

Tar Heel hoarders can tie proud of themselves. They sent sales tax receipts up about $400,000 more than was expected last month. Rev enue Commissioner Eugene Shaw reported a gain of more than 850r 000 above the same month a year ago. Since this was more than s4uu,uoo above the average Mined each month 4hls year, Shaw could only attribute It to ."hysterical war buying and hoarding." If the North Carolinians fighting in xvorea naa acted with the same patriotism, the Korean war would have: been over two months ago - with us pushed off the mean little peninsula. r A v. - . .,.. :x ':: ' W"-4':;";-'' r :"' ' Reported irregularities - - nar- I ticularly misuse of public property are neing investigated In the State s Forestry!, Division's First District ' , n if; ' ;; -The.

And what do you think the tune was, they were singing? A little ditty entitled: "Who's afraid of Big Bad Kerr Scott!"' v You can forget that dry dock at Wilmington. Blame it on a lot of 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.- ','--. . : ... Time-payment cattle are slated for 'North Carolina's' future. A group of New York moneymen are Interenfed in starting up either a cheaper here. The Governor aV a' press con ference took a swipe at North Caro lina bankers for "not having, en ough vision" to finance cattle buy ing. The banks were the same way about financing cars some years back, he said, so the finance com panies came in and "made a killing."-;: -, .r-,,.,...;, ,,' Banking Commissioner ' Gurney P. Hood said that only a few Tar Heel banks now make loans on cattle. x't ,4: V : iArX-'i. Assistant B(idget Director Dave Coltrane is hunting a farm mana gement specialist to take over the spervislon of all state-owned farms, The hunt is on because Coltrane found recently, that some of the State's farms are losing money. In one case, it was discovered that farm had twice as many registered cattle out to graze, as the pasture would stand. In times like these, even a state-operated farm ought to at least break even, Coltrane believes. ' With Its decision to allow Tide water Power and Light Company a $200,000 9 year rate increase, the Utilities Commission by a 3-2 vote Incidentally, Ti Jo . .m presi dent Is-tfeported to get a salary of more than $25,000 a year plus a "very generous" expense account The expense account plus salary, the report said, runs more than the combined salaries and expense accounts of all five of the Utilities Commissioners. Not bad for "pore folks." . .. ' v X V.9.-; 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 in sight They won't be clamped on unless the war spreads beyond Korea.

" ,' - - 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.
