".r: The motor vehicle inspection lane is paying its second visit
: to this county. Although lanes are. scheduled to return to towns
". throughout the state more than one or two times, the last time
will come upon us before we know it and then there will be fraz
il jried -nerves caused by waiting in line. The mechanics at the in-
ipection lane will be rushed, and all will be turmoil unneces
sarily. The inspection lane supervisor is begging motorists to bring
1 .their cars, trucks, and other types of motor vehicles for inspec
tion now. The lane will operate in Beaufort until noon tomor
row and in Morehead City until noon next Saturday.
Reality: A Chamber of Commerce
Beaufort's Chamber of Commerce is no longer a thing of the
past. Nor is it a talked of possibility for the future. It's a re
ality of the present.
A Chamber of Commerce is a necessity in every town with
a population over 2,500 and with enthusiasm shown at Wednes
day night's meeting when ihe board of directors were chosen,
this Chamber of Commerce should not fall by the wayside as did
the one during the '20s and the other in the late '30s and early '40s.
Enthusiasm is a strange quality, howver, where it concerns
a project launched by a group of individuals. It's like a freshly
opened bottle of soda pop. Tingling, invigorating at first, but
as time goes on, it tends to' get flat. No more tiny bubbles, no
more energy, no more effervescence.
Those who participated in the earlier Chamber of Commerce
are the first to admit that they failed because of lack of interest.
It finally fell on one or two men to do all the work.
A Chamber of Commerce, is not, primarily, a social organiza
tion. Businessmen who join it with the thought of having a good
time or merely gaining prestige by being able to say, "I'm a mem
ber of the Chamber of Commerce," are kidding themselves and
being unfair to other businessmen earnestly interested in building
a town that will attract commerce.
And attracting commerce is the objective of such an organ
ization. Gaining this objective involves keeping an eye on serv
ice by public utilities, making the town a pleasant place to live,
providing opportunities for employment. All projects directly
and remotely connected with making more money tingle in the
cash register are the responsibility of the Chamber of Commerce.
In the times between Chambers of Commerce, the Junior
Chamber of Commerce has ably and willingly carried the ball.
If the "senior" Chamber of Commerce accomplishes as much as
the Jaycees have, Beaufort will hold an even more important
place on the map.

NEW HOPE FOR THE SOUTH
This is to predict that big things
are in store for North Carolina's
new United States Senator, J. Mel
ville Broughton, who won a thump
ing victory over Senator William
B. Umstead in last Saturday's Pri
mary. Possessed of an ncccnt like a
Harvard man, n bodv like a black
smith, a sharp mind, and a fcen
sense of humor, J. M. Broughton
m:iy bring new glory to the South.
He will be able to look after him
self in the US. Senate, whether
it he the Democrats or the Re
publicans running the show, have
no worries about that.
Sooner or later, he will become
a national figure. With the South
growing fast and becoming more
important every day on the broad
U. S. scene, Broughton might be
come the first President nearly in
100 years from North Carolina.
ONLY HOEY AND BROUGH
TON With money spent lavish
ly and organization handled effec
tively, only Clyde R. Hoey and J
M. Broughton -could have with
stood the tremendous power gen
erated by the generals in Senator
W. B. Umstead's headquarters. Un
til 11 o'clock Saturday night, there
was doubt that Broughton could
stand up against It. But stand he
did by virtue of Baptist strength,
the rural and labor vote, and gen
eral mass appeal. But people are
funny, particularly when they are
voting. Mecklenburg, home of the
new National Treasurer Joe Bly
the, an all-out Umstead man. gave
Broughton a hinge vote, but Wake,
Broughton's home county and the
area which gave him his start,
went for Umstead.
TWICE IN EIGHT By win
ning, J. M. Broughton for the
second time in eight years put
the quietus on a budding political
machine. He did it -in 1940 and
again last Saturday. This grouD
must now decide whether it will
attempt to salvage something from
Saturday's wreckage. Will it' go
with Johnson ... chances are it
w.'ll- . . , or with Scott? After
looking at Saturday's returns, it
would not Seem to make too much
difference either way . . , If the
people are on their toes pa June
26, date of the runoff.

COUNTIES AS this is written

morning, May 30, it is still too
early fpr a final view of the guber
natorial situation, but figure com
piled here show that Charles M.
Johnson carried . . . Bv "carried"
we mean led in the voting . . in
52 counties, Scott in 43, and A1-.
bright in five. Albright carried
Burke, Edgecombe, Nash, North
ampton and Washington.
Gaston County stuck by its na
tive son. Gov. R. Gregg Cherry, by
giving Charles M. Johnson 4,468
votes to 1.287 for Scott and 1,182
for Albright. Cleveland County,
home of the "Shelby Dynasty",
went along with the machine as
follows: 4,392 for Johnson, 1,524
for Scott, and 332 for Albright,
Wake County: 8,697 for Scott, 5,
408 for Albright, 5,338 for John
son. NEW EDITOR This column
was started five years ago. Some
times it has been rather fierce in
its (.ttacks, but has not knowingly
pnnted a falsehood. It has strived
at all times not to take itself top
seriously, but in any event always
tc be readable, interesting, and
maybe a little different front the
usual run of Raleigh stuff.
Several papers in the State dur
ing the. campaign ran articles on
the candidates for State office,
usually beginning with Albright on
down the alphabetical list. This
column, figuring that the three
principal contenders would be Al'
bright, Johnson, and Scott, decided
it would give out with material
f.bout these three, but rather than
to be like the other columns and
papers, would begin with Scott . . .
then Johnson . , . then Albright .
There was no beating about the
bush when this was done. Scott's
article went out. And then
for the first time in five years
an attempt was made to throttle
this column . . . to control it . . .
or possibly to stop it. When the
Johnson piece Went out, the Scott
folks probably raised Ned, but no
attempt was made to control the
column. Albright's column movd
into the papers without difficulty.
But the articles . , , that fint
one for Scott .' . . was the reason
you missed seeing this column for
at least one week . probably two
weeks . . . and that's why the per
son who has been .assisting with
the column for five yeara now has
complete charge of it . . and
bears all responsibility for what
appears in it. It should be point
ed out , that at no time did any
candidate for Governor or any of
the assistants or managers in the
various headquarters, attempt to
control this column . . . and the
Johnson folks in the county which
tried to pressure the column, and
did get a new editor, saw their
man run third in that county, and
that county paper no longer re
ceives the column, '
NO fiUCH THING It is vir
tually impossible for any newspa
perman to be Impartial.' Scott
readers have said this corner was J
for Johnson, and Johnson people
have said it was for Scott, .while
Albright followers thanked it for
any nice things said for their man.
And so it goes. Possibly, uncons
ciously, partiality has been shown.
Two weeks ago it was reported
around Raleigh that Lynn Nisbet
was for Scott. Last week it was
reported he was for Johnson. The
Charlotte News came out for John
sen. However, it is almost impos
sible to know how any paper
stands on any candidate. It's
