Commissioners Hear Industrial And Agricultural
Council Report-Adopt Resolution To Enact Legislation
The Duplin County Board of Com
missioners in adjourned regular
session on Monday, February 18
heard reports of the officers and
members of the board of directors
of the Duplin County Industrial and
Agricultural Council of studies
made by their group of several
county organizations which have
been successful in the promotion of
industrial and agricultural enterpri
ses on a county-widie level.
C. W. Surratt.'Jr., President, Gar
land P. King, Vice President, and
Board Members, Elmo Blizzard, T.
J. Baker, E. C. Thompson and Rus
sell Bostic reported to the Board on
their finding as to how county or
ganizations have been effective in
aiding and encouraging the location
of manufacturing enterprises, mak
ing industrial surveys and locating
industrial and commercial plants in
various counties. They told how
county sponsored organizations have
been effective in increasing popula
tion, taxable property, agricultural
industries and business prospects
for counties which have instigated
such county development programs.
It was found that before Duplin
County can finance such a program
with county tax funds that an en
abling act must be passed by the
State Legislature and the county
residents must vote in a referen
dum to authorize the Board of
County Commissiners to expend
county tax funds for this purpose.
The Board of County Commis
sioners adopted a resolution re
questing Representative Hugh S.
Johnson and Senator Leroy G. Sim
mons to enact the necessary legisla
tion to provide for a referendum to
permit the establishment of such a
program of industrial and agricul
tural development in Duplin County
to be financed by county property
tax funds not to exceed 5c per
$100.00 property valuation.

Law Enforcement Officers Join Hands
To Helo Youth In And Around Warsaw
As Mayor of Warsaw and a par
ent myself, I would like to inform
the citizens here and in the sur
rounding communities that the dis
orderly conduct which is increasing
during the dances which are held
every Saturday night at the Twin
Produce building in Faison must be
controlled or steps will be taken to
discontinue the dance.
This is due to the numerous ar
rests which have been increasing
during the past few months. Ages
range from 16 through 25 In many
instances, the parents of the teen
agers learn nothing about the ar
rests or, if they do, the teenagers
misrepresent the facts with the
parents taking up for them and
claiming the deputies have made
In all cases, the arrival and con
dition of the defendants have been
witnessed to the fact that they were
highly intoxicated if not dead drunk
? having to be bodily carried into
the jail. Anyone, who cares to wit
ness this phenomenon can wait a
round the City Hall at Warsaw any
Saturday night after 11:30.
The reason the defendants are
lodged in this jail is the fact that
Warsaw has the closest 24-hour
police department in Duplin County
to Faison. (The Jail is under sup
ervision'^ hours a day)..
AormTffme'hKBre' ar^Hias^beerN dan
gerously increasing due to improper
management on the part of the pro
prietors who have expressed the
desire that the law stay away from
the dance or refrain from making
any arrests there.
I feel that the citizens here, espec
ially parents of teenagers, should
be informed and warned about the
ronditions of drunkeness and mis
conduct which are prevalent at this
(lance. It has become a public nui
sance. and it is not a (it place of
entertainment for the young people
of Duplin. It is patronized by ser
vice men and adults from distant
places who do not mix well with
young people who need proper sup
ervision. The young people are ex
posed to improper conduct and alco
hol. (The reason I am familiar with
the situation is in the fact that these
defendants appear before me in -
court, and I have gone to the dan
ce after midnight to see for myself.
This situation is creating a dan
gerous pattern for all teenagers to
follow and one that I am sure no
parent wishes to see his children
As Mayor and Justice of Peace.
I would like to notify everyone that
AS-OF-NOW-any person arrested at
this dance will see their pub
lished in the paper and their" parents
notified as soon as possible after
