Tily Hie Poor Ponies!'
nr " The Raleigh News and Observer is shedding tears over the
'' cruel pony pennings on the Carolina banks.
In an editorial Which appeared Thursday pony pennings were
branded "poor sport." Objection was raised to using airplanes
$and jeeps to drive the animals to the pen, ". . . the poor little
horses are not worth much when they're captured," wept the edi
torial. "There haven't been any reports tlit they do any harm
(- surviving on the poor pasturage the banks provide. They have
provided, however, a picturesque aspect of the Carolina shore . . .
;JThe 'owners' of the ponies," continues the editorial, "have an un
doubted right probably to use power weapons to stare the ponies,
ft pen them, and sell theht. But it's about time this business drop
fped out of public attention as a quaint aspect of life on our coast,
-lit has become as quaint as a mechanized hog-killing in the Chi
cago stockyards and a good deal less picturesque."
Any day now we expect to see an editorial in an upstate
"jfpapcr berating us for fishihg. After all, the poor fish aren't
h'rming anyone. Not only that we kill them, drag them out
ijiof the water, and Just let 'em die. That's much worse than mere
ly getting hold of them for about an hour and then setting them
jfree, ns we do the ponies.
We object, too, to the editorial's quotation marks about the
,word "owners." Local pony dealers have their own brands and
are as prrticular about who owns which horse as were the cattle
dealers on the bygone open western ranges.
rj We might point but loo, that many of the "wild" ponies are
twild only in the sense that they are not penned up in a barn
jjeach night and made to drag plows, wagons, and other man-made
'encumbrances during the day.
f Some of the original banker ponies have been brought to
$the mainland, inbred with larger domesticated horses, and the
offspring turned loose again on the banks, thus producing a bet
ter breed of banker pony than would be in existence now if the
tanimals had been left "unmolested" on the windswept stretches
As for the "picturesque aspfcet" of the Carolina shore, how
j, would people know it's picturesque if pony penning and the ponies
f'diopped out of public interest" as the editorial suggests.
Trading in banker ponies, though not a vast enterprise, is- as
much a means of income to coastal Carolinians as fishing.
Who.1 the State Department of Conservation and Develop
ment, a philanthropic individual, or The News and Observer buys
ra11 the ponies and sets up a wild life preserve on the banks, then
this horrible pony pennihg ho longer may be necessary.
fori Macon and Memorial Day
Close to a thousand people visited Fort Macon Sunday a
fitting tribute on Memorial Day to the men who fought and died
, "there In 1862.
j Although the 1J47 legislature did not grant the sum request
ed to develop Fort Macon into a more complete state park, a
' small amount of money was appropriated to restore parts of the
f fort. If the influx of people to this area continues as it has dur
i' ihg the past several years, the vast number of visitors here will
I prove (o State legislators that North Carolinians, hot only Car
tteret countiahs, have unbounded interest in this coastal land
pnark. Considering failure to get the funds needed from last year's
j legislature as the final word on Fort Macon won't gain us a thing.
V , '5 January and the 1949 legislature aren't faf away. Fort Macon In

J".' The 1948 convention Season at Atlantic Beach will open to-morrow
with the North Carolina Postmasters' convention. Ap-
proximately 300 postmasters from all sections of the atate will

I-'county, actually, will be host, but this doesn't excuse the rest of
' us from brushing off. the welcome mat and giving the familiar
Sold "Howdy" handshake.
Postof flees were closed yesterday because Ot the Memorial

STORY OF THE WEEK
What has become of the shifting
grave' on Bogue Banks? Remember
back several years ago when com
siderable excitement was created
when- two hunter which Had been
stalking game Oh Bogue Banks,,
claimed to have discovered what
appeared t be Itt uhusual grave,
which in their opinion was place
of bidden treasures. " : rv
Efforts, on their part to break
open the top was unsuccessful for
they lacked the necessary tools.
Determined tp solve the mystery
of their discovery, they planned
to return the next day with suit;
table tools to open the grave. In
Order to mark the stop and a trail
so that they could again find the
spot they tore strips from their un
derwear, tying the strips to bran
ches of the trees as they worked
their way back to their boat on
the shore of the sound.
. ' A. storm prevented their return
the next day, when they did go
over the Banks, prepared to dig
open the grave, they were unable
to locate the spot where they had
marked a trail. Every shred of
cloth which the men had tied to
the branches of the trees, had in
some mysterious way disappeared.
It is said these men and others
tried many time to again locate
the (pot where in their belief lay
Hidden treasures from the boats
of the notorious pirates who are
known to have made the Banks one
of their landing places for the
hiding ot loot.
Other searchers have from time
to time scoured the Banks, fum in
the belief that they would some
time be rewarded for their efforts
Those of a supersitious mind be
lieve that some supernatural phe
nomenon causes this grave to move
from spot to spot with the shifting
sands, preventing it to be found.
This fact has given the lurid story
the title of the shifting grave.
