I'm A Stranger Here Myself
fJ Helen Caldwell Cushman '
y ' What is Kenansville made of?; Sugar and spice
and everything nice, is that what Kenansville is
.made oil'. Magnolia trees and a warm southern
breeze? Is it old, is it new, does it live in the past?
J don't know all the ingredients that go into the
finished product,; nor can I judge how it would
seem to you. I can only tell you how it looks to
me, the flavor that I get from it. . C
If I were a painter, I might paint a picture of
Kenansville as a study in light and shadow. The
picture might not be, what anyone else sees there,
but it would represent the feeling of the town as I
felt' it, as I saw.it through my eyes. Since I am a
1 stranger here it ; is f natural that I should see it
with a diferent perspective. Its sharply contrast
ing characteristics may appear rnpre vivid to me
i than to those to. whom the place is so familiar that
they are unaware of them.
I;have lived in a new mushrooming boom
town with no past, and in the deep forest of Maine
on4i lake in the wilderness with only deer and
moose for neighbors, where no man has left his
imprint. I have known the hustling, noisy gaudy
town that is Chicago, and the quaint old .world
walled city that is Quebec. , For severa years I
stayed in a Presbyterian manse, in a small town
in Georgia, and I have lived a longer time in a huge
impersonal apartment on New York's East River.
I found unspeakable beauty in the Canadian' Rock
ies, hectic excitement in Hollywood. I havje lived
'- in Santa Fe and Klamath Falls, in Portland, Maine
'and in Portland, Qfegoh, in Boston, Miami, Char
lottesville .. .. . and I have liked them all, Each has
its own flavor compounded of the past and. present,!
,the rlimatA '.thi inr!iisf.rie. trio sconorv' Mnct 'nf

. that each aves its -mark ,onihe other. 1 ' .
the proud Wstbry of4ts "past; but U$s a new town,
too. Its ancient houses stand Well back from it3
, shaded streets, the new, modern ones near paved
Jtighwaysi . It has oneiof th?" oldest churches in
. America , the Grove Presbyterian church, and it
has a resplendent new brick one. It has a large
up-to-date auditorium and a dignified stately court
house. Soon ground will be broken for a complete
ly modern hospital. The people are well aware of
their history and tradition. They have seen it all
, enacted in the majestic and ambitious pageant
that was the "Duplin Story." Yet the town is
, awake too, growing slowly, but growing. That
, is the important thing.; A static town can stifle
life by refusing to live in the present, discouraging .'
any vision of the future. A town that, grows with
its people has vigor, vitality, and is flexible enough :
to meet the challenge of a new tomorrow.
, Life is leisurely here; there is none of the ,
ulcer-producing pressure that you feel in New
York or. Pittsburgh, i That is one reason why its
people are friendlier,' they have more time to be ;
friendly. Often in New England you can see on
the faces of its paople a stern," tightlipped expres
sion that is a reflection of the harsh hostility of its
climate. In Kenansville, the air is warm and soft
; and the people are more relaxed and pleasant
Life is easier,- the people more easy-going. If I .
might paraphrase a verse from Proverbs, I would
say that her ways are ways of pleasantness, and
. in. her' paths. lies peace. 'fe-Mirt'y-'.;.- - tyi
Would you like Kenansville? I don't know K
it would depend upon you. . What you find any
' place is pretty much what you look for, isn't it?
I have found the people kind and hospitable and
sincerely friendly i ; ; all those I have met; I have
found gracious charm and culture, .and rich good-
' humor, and warm laughter. Yes, I was a stranger
here, but I like the town, and more than the town.-

Damage done to the Produce Ex- .
change in Wallace by Sunday
freakish tornado was estimated to
be between $7,000 and $10,000.
The unusual storm damaged five
connected office buildings, wreck
ed a large weighing shed, over
turned a van-type trailer, smash
ed a plate glass window and up
rooted several large trees.
The winds apparently hit the Pro
duce Exchange with a rising and
falling motion, damaging buildings'
on either side of the block-size mar
ket area but not damaging other
buildings in the area.
Joseph H. Bryant, president of
the Produce Exchange, made the
damage estimate. He said that the
exchange would be repaired and
would definitely be in operation
when the '"produce season open
about May 10.
The empty trailer was parked
beside a shed and today officials
had not been able to determine
the owner. The trailer was blown
on its side.
A laree plate glass window.
valued at about $200, was blown
out of Blanchard Pontiac Company.
The roof of the home of J. T. Car
ter was damaged.
Trees about one-half mile away
from the market were uprooted but
no other damage had been reported
Five buyers' offices at the ex
change were wrecked by the winds.
The buildings were built of cement
blocks. Several produce crates
under the weighing shed were de
molished. Wreckage from the tornado was
scattered over a wide area. There
