busses run on schedule in the best
interests of the public." The mat

To Be Distributed
The next issue of the More
head Beaufort telephone director
ies will be delivered in August
and will carry a new classified
section, according tit L. A. Daniels,
manager of the Carolina Telephone
and Telegraph company.
Mr. Daniels points out that the
need for the new classified section
has been brought about by the in
creased number of telephones.
Rcords show that during the past
year 203 telephones have been
added in Morehead and Beaufort,
and that in addition to the 1,792
telephones in service here there
are now 170 applications on hand
for telephone service.
"We are doing everything pos
sible to give service to all who
want it," Mr. Daniels said. "And
we know that all telephone users
" find the new classified tele
e directory a convenient
e of useful business informa
tio. The classified section will
be printed on yellow pages and
will be similar to those now ap
pearing in directories published
in many of the cities throughout
the country."
The new yellow page section will
list the names, addresses, and tele
phone numbers of business tele
phone subscribers under headings
alphabetically arranged and will
describe their business, profes
sions, or the commodity or service
they sell.

scat. This, she said, was the first
time she was attacked by Willis.
Willis later lured the two girls
into his home with candy. Peggy
Ann testified that he took Fayc
into a room and locked the door.
She said she was ignorant of any
thing that trespassed in the room

gy Ann into the room where Willis

or two later because she was
"scared."

to her story of the attack. She
gave no answer.
The cirl's father, Plymouth Wil
lis, was then brought to the stand
and he told what he knew of th ?
ease. Under cross-examination,
Willis told the court that every
thing he knew about the case was
told to him by Peggy Ann.

coaching Peggy Ann to testify that
she had been raped instead of
merely assiultcd, but this Wilis
vehemenlly denied. The girl's la
ther continued, "1 knew the girl
hadn't been raped. He fell all over
her merely to satisfy his rwn lust.
It was assault with intent tr rape."
