' ' One of the great needs of Morehead City is a bus line. Rea
. 'Mixing this, the cityJathers on Aug. 7, 1945 granted a franchise
T t J. W. Gillikln, who since that time, has driven his buses around
"Tire streets of Morehead City. And that's about all.
i:U: Morehead City Jaycees discussed the poor service at their
meeting Monday night. To our knowldge, this matter has come
up seriously within the past two years at town commissioners'
meetings, and has been discussed there casually several other
:- Add to this the innumerable complaints made by private in
dividuals, and one cant help but come to the conclusion that a
bus line operated haphazardly is worse than no bus line at all.
V ' According to records In the municipal building Mr. Gillikin
'was first granted by Morehead City commissioners a franchise
to Operate a bus line for 12 months from Aug. 7, 1945 with the
privilege of operating for an additional 12 months if the service
waB deemed satisfactory by the board. The town was to receive
6 per cent of the gross receipts, payable monthly.
. " The following year, on Aug. 20, 194G, the Gillikin Bus com
pany was granted a renewed franchise for a term of three ye.ars,
to operate "under the same terms and conditions as present."
According to officials in the city hall, Morehead City has
received no income from the Gillikin bus line for the past six
Aside from this, residents in outlying sections of the town
who depend on buses to take them to and from the shopping dis
trict, have come to the point where thiy either walk to town or
.call a cab.
Housewives in the western part of the city who have had to
' spend 50 cents cab fare to the business district when the bus failed
to show up or went lumbering by and didn't stop for them, have
discovered that for 31 cents more they can board a Seashore
Transportation company bus, which follows a regular schedule,
and go to New Bern to do their shopping.
.. Maids threaten to quit work because reaching the homes
' Where they are employed Is a nerve-Wracking chore. Others re
fuse to work in homes far from the center of town because they
don't want to contend with the bus service.
Mr. Gillikin, perhaps, is doing the best he can. Undoubted
ly, he has many problems. No public service corporation pleases
everybody all the time and we're ready to recognize reasonable
complaints from his corner. However, the time has come for a
Willy-nilly bus service has never been an asset to any town.
All Dressed Up lor Callers
The court house yard is all decked out in its best Sunday-
go-to-meetin' dress for the June term of superior court.
The brilliantly colored zinnias and the quieter-toned petunias
lining the main walk to the front door are a picture. Add to
these the cape Jasmihe bushes along the curving road, the big
blue hydrangea bush, and the graceful, willow opposite the grove
f live oaks and We're Willing to miteh our court house yard
with the next fellow's.
John Johnson, caretaker responsible for all this, mowed the
ltwn this Week too, probably wishing there was planted the new
type of grass which never needs cutting . . .
May justice bloom as profusely In the court house as do the
flowers at Its door.
