One of our Kenansvllle visitors
rsaUy got a scare last night (Tues
day). Mrs. 'Betty Lou Davis and
small son. Mike, had been visiting
her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Rufus
Elks. She left the Raleigh-Durham
Airport on Tuesday afternoon to re
turn to her home in Texas. Tuesday
night she called her parents from
New Orleans where the plane was
grounded due to rough weather
Mr. Elks said Betty Lou was just
about pertrified. She could not get
in touch with her husband in Texas
and she said that was the end of
her flying career. Th* baby had
been air sick and everything was
wrong, even the milk for tiie baby
had given out.
After several telephone calls
things were straightened out. Mr.
Elks got in touch with her husband
in Texas. We have a Kenansville
native living in New Orleans, Mrs. '
Jimmy Tucker, whom they called. J
Mrs. Tucker went right down and !
gat Betty Lou and the baby, bor
rowed a sterilizer, to prepare milk ,
for the baby, who was demanding
that he be fed, and had everything
la "ship shape" in no time short. |
The Elks heard from Betty' Lou on
Wednesday morning, her husband '
had gotten to New Orleans, and ,
all wore" sleeping peacefully after
their harrowing experience.
