there were 800 little chicks, chirping

The Duplin Times regrets very much that the head
line in last weeks paper which read "Commissioners Re
guest Permission To Allow ABC Stores in Duplin" was
capable of being misinterpreted. It should have read
"Commissioners Have Requested The Legislature To
Introduce A Bill To Call For a Referendum for ABC
Stores For Duplin".
This headline was not meant to cast a reflection
or to throw blame on anyone in the forthcoming issue.
The County Commissioners were petitioned and requet- <
ed our Legislators to introduce a bill allowing people
of Duplin to vote on the issue. The Duplin Times was ?
reporting a story as soon as the news was available and
as fairly as we could.
We realize that the issue on alcoholic beverages ,
is a controversial issue and in this controversy the 1
Times' policy will be to allow space for both sides of the J
question. The amount of space' for each side will have J
to be limited to a certain number of inches each week.
We shall earnestly try to report proceedings on ;
the issue as fast as they happen, and as fairly as we can. (

the Birthday Objective presented

sion and slides of Brazil. Mrs. Cam
pbell visited 'Brazil the past sum
mer as a representative of the Syn

the missionary work in Brazil and
of future plans of the Presbyterian
Church there. In her story she told
of the poverty which exists in the
rural area and explained how much
a ,<tm^l amount of money >% these
areas would mean.
Her pictures showed lovely scenes
of the country aide and also the
1200 mile road which was travelled
mostly by jeep, adding humorously
that you knew when you had been
riding on the rood.
Mrs. Campbell said the beauty
of the work In Brazil was the en
thusiasm of the missionaries who
are stationed there now. The May
Birthday offering in the Presbyter
ian Church is designated for work
in Brazil and Mexico.
