SECTION ONE
I Perry J. Dobson Retires As Rural Mail
Carrier After 35 Years Service
A
' PERRY J. DOBSON
It was back In the days of old
Dobbin that Perry J. Dobson, a
dashing young man, of the Hill
Swamp area, began his career as
mail carrier.
Mr. Dobson and his wife (the
former Brilla Alderman of Rose
Hill) lived on their farm adjoining
that of his brother, Tyson Dobson
and the late A. J. Pickett. When
the need arose for a substitute mail
carrier from the Hallsville office,
whose Post Mistress was Miss Eth
el Smith (Now Mrs. Jimmy Grady)
Perry was glad to fill the place,
rhis date was November 11, 1918,
Armistice Day for the first W.wld
War. It was tor some six months
or more that Perry waded, swam
or got across the best way he coulo
the river at Hallsville and worked
with Mis Ethel and his brother.
In May 1919, he received his per
manent appointment as full time
carrier tor the Kenansville office.1
of which Miss Nell Chambers was
Post Mistress. It was some time af
ter this that the Post Office was
robbed, upsetting Miss Nell so, that
she found it necessary to retire.
With the retiring of Miss Chambers,
Mrs. Davis Farrior became acting
post mistress until the next, party
took over, placing Mrs. Laura Gav
in at the head.
It was during the years that Mrs
Gavin was post mistress that Perry
worked the longest and maybe the
hardest. Of course with the coming
of the Mode) T, Mr. Dobson could
not resist so for years he would
push, shove and dig himself out of
the mud and much of Hell Swamp
and other parts of the road to see
that the mail went. There was nev
er a day regardless of weather and
roads that "the mail" was not de
livered, at least to part of the pat
rons, who in turn would volunteer
to carry the others theirs too. When
asked if it were true the carriers
-ead all the cards and then some,
Mr. Dobson laughed and said, "Of
course we would have to see to
whom they were addressed, but 1
was too busy playing cupid and
;uch to read because I was always
ioing the writing." For the lack
jf telephone service and so few
?ars, Perry quite often was called
an to get the doctor for the sick,
jet P'e medicine, tell the neighbor
lo 'hurry down and one' time was
called upon to give a hypodermic,
'his he could not do, however.
He became , known to his many
'riends, both colored and white, as
he personal shopper, not only for
naterial things but for God. All the
:hildren thought of him as Santa
Claus's helper and I'm sure he was.
The men depended on him for news
from town and advice as to where
and how to catch the biggest fish.
On one occasion he acted as the
undertaker, the ashes of someone
sent by parcel post from California
to his family. When asked how he
felt about that he said, "Well, it
was just another parcel post pack
age." During the 35 years of service, Mr.
Dobson was assisted by Mr.. Willie
Brinson . and Mrs. Dobson, if the
fishing days were so good he just
were' recognized and given' oppor
tunity to speak briefly about their
part of the work. Reports from the
past year and plans for the incom
ing year were presented to the
group which had assembled for the
meeting with much enthusiasm, ,
The youth organizations include
the Young Woman's' Auxiliary, the
Girls' Auxiliary, the Royal Ambas
sadors, and .the Sunbeams. These
embrace all young people from (pur
years of g . through 'twenty-four
years of ate and afford them oppor
tunity for;inl8sioir jrtudjr je&yt, J

KENANSVILLE,
laQ .o be oLf.
With Mr. Dobson's retirement on
September 1, 1954, he had traveled
approximately some 400,000 miles,
served under eight different post
I mistresses and masters with J. L.
Williams, Joe Wallace, Mrs. Hallie
I Daughtry and Colon Holland, being
I the last, also delivered mail and
packages to at least four genera
j '.ions.
i During Mr. Dobson's time oack
! in 1919 he helped to organize the
county rural carriers, acting s their
resident, secretary and treasurer
1 at various times. He was also Dea
' -on of the Baptist Church, Superin
tendent of the Sunday School, teach
er and leader in any civic organiza
tion in Kenansville. This he hopes
to be able to still do. In spite of
his years and retirement he is still
a young man in heart and mind. It
Lean be truthfully said of Ferry,
'To know him is but to love him."
Mr. Eobson receive " a retire
ment certificate for meritorious ser
vice from the Postmaster General,
Arthur Summerfield, of which he is
quite proud and rightfully he should
be. He and his wife, Brilla plan to
spend their years enjoying the
many things of. interest they havt
always wanted to do and last but
nut least, help spoil all the grand
children they can.

Rebel Revelations
Democratic Victory In Maine Signals
Two Party System; Blame On Hurricane
No matter how bad it has been, and
it has been unspeakable, it could
be wo.se. But how much worse. I
had no idea . . I just hope I don't
have to learn the hard way again.
I had referred to Carol as a cap
ricious wench . . and I meant it.
She was an expensive one, too, and
will cost a half billion dollars to
clean up after her. Perhaps Edna
was vexed at her sister's publicity,
maybe she wished to be known as
the more dangerous.'
Surely no hurricane ever had
such advance notices as Edna. For
nearly thiry-six hours the- eastern
sea board was warned of her ap
proach. She was tracked by radar.
Her force was calculated to be mueh
worse than that of her sister who
had visited us only eleven days be
fore. There was a faint hope that
she would go farther east than Car
ol and thus spare most of the New
England Coast the havoc and dis-
I should have learned not to op
en my mouth about the weather
aster that Carol left in her wake.
I never realized how darned far
easl Maine is before. Look at it on
a map and you will see why wt
were visited with this vicious storm
after it has passed to the east of
Boston. She struck Maine with full
fury. We shall be months recovering,
and the scars will remain for years.
Maine had been drenched with
water all summer. The lakes were
"ull and in many cases overflowing.
The mud had never had a chance
to dry on the back roads. The gar
dens needed sun and warmth and
i few days of growing weather
Rain was one thing we had had a
:urfeit of. There wasn't any room
to put any more.
Edna must have been a weepy gal
nore rain fell in Maine in one day
than had fallen in any storm in 53
years. Several places got as much
as eight inches and that is a lot of
rain. Brooks that were a merp
rickle became raging torrents, run
ling over the roads, washing out
he shoulders, undermining lonp
tretches of the pavement. Cars
vhich were proceeding warily a
ong suddenly dropped down ten
?et as the road collapsed. Miles
ind miles of railroad were washed
Out. Bridges just disappeared.
Not far from here acres of corn
became lakes , . deep lakes with
only an occasional top spindle show
ing. Even gardens in high spots
were like sponges . . the soil was
just super-saturated.
Communication with the outside
world was almost non - existant.
There were few telephones, no pow
er, only an occasional battery radio
would work. There was no mail for
days . . no way for mail to get to
Maine or out of it. There were a
few flights out and a few in . . but
to get a seat required a statement
that the trip was essential, urgent.
The -Kennebec was filled with
log booms and thousands of cords
of pulp wood. The rising river re
leased the .logs from bondage . .
and the whole river was filled with
millions of pammlng, rushing logs.
Many of them washed into L.C!
ocean rnnd hundreds of corus piled
high on tha beaches to the south of
(he Kennebec. One of the towns
hoped to salvage enough logs from
the sea. to pay for the hurricane
damage. .;.-.-: '
; Boats that had survived the first
blow sank with tha second. Forty
foot yachts just disappeared from
sight. Trees that had been weaken
ed by the storm jenly eleven days
before fell aerosa reads and drive

telephone line with them.

Experience is the thing that

Greentrees is high on a hill over
looking West Mount Vernon. It is
protected in part from a north blow
by another hill rising just behind
the house. But is is not protected
.'rom such rain. The roof began to
leak, the north side had water seep
ing in through the centuries-old
clapboards . . and in the huge cel
lar water was pouring from the
wall like a water fall.
Most of the deaths in Maine from
Edna were drowning . . people who
were caught by flash floods when
ihe water rose faster than a car
?ould travel. Some were rescued
from the tops of cars where thej
had climbed when the water cover
ed -thlT'dooTS'-j . others were swept
iway before help could reach them.
But it is an ill wind that does
lot bring some good . . and this
vind did have something to do with
the stunning upset to Maine tradi
tion. Two days after the hurricane
he people of Maine went to the
Kills . . and elected a Democratic
Jovernor for the first time in twen
V years. The margin by which the
tepublican Congressional delega
ion won its seats was so small as
.o be astounding.
Even such a very popular and
capable person as Senator Margaret
Chase Smith who was running
against a political new comer, a
history professor from Colby Col
lege saw her previous vote dimin
ished by thousands. Two of the Con
gressmen barely squeaked by . . .
both of them men of long experi
ince and both running against un
known opponents.
Many of the reasos for the defeat
of the incumbent governor are pure
ly local. There were many disgrunt
led Republicans In Maine this year.
. . voters who had always marked
an X on the straight Republican
ticket split their ballot. There was
?reat dissatisfaction among the
farmers in Maine, and the rural
Dopulation with the transfer of
iighway funds that had been ear
marked for the small towns to
arger communities.
The most encouraging part of the
Maine election is that it signals the
Jirth of a two ' party system in
Maine again. The sleeping Demo
ratic" party had been awakened,
roused Itself from its long lethargy
and started to fight.
The new Democratic governor of
this rock-ribbed Republican state is
young, just 40, he is a navy veteran,
a graduate of Cornell, and an ex
cellent lawyer. He had served sev
eral terms in the State legislature
'and was the minority leader.
jlq MUSKie is oi .polish descent
and is a native of the mill town of
Rumford. He has a charming per
sonality and a brilliant mind and
will do the Democratic party great
credit in this hostile land.
Whether the old adage; many
times disproved, 'As Maine Goes, So
goes the Union' will be borne out
in November or not, the Democrat
ic victory did frighten the old
guard Republicans . . they had just
taken Maine for granted too long.
The people certainly showed their
dissatisfaction with the old guard
in Maine . . and united to show
their displeasure.
This has been quite a fall for
Maine.. Two hurricanes in a state
which should not have hurricanes,
And a Democratic Governor In a
state, so Republican that the words
Maine and Republican have been
considered synonymous for genera
tions, who knows what Will happen
