Stale Agriculture Department Reports Milk 'Above
Minimum Standard Health Officer Says
To investigate complaints receiv
ed at the county health depart
ment on milk distributed by Dixie
Dairy Products, incorporated,
Morehead City, Dr. N. Thomas En
nett, health officer, recently called
a meeting of county and town of
ficials and H. P. Scripture, man
ager of the dairy.
According to reports on dairies
from the State Agriculture depart
ment which were reviewed at the
meeting, Dixie Dairy milk "rated
much above the minimum stand
ard . . . particularly as to butter
fat and low bacteria count." Dr
F.nnett said in a statement from
the health department today.
"No sample was below the mini
mum butter fat requirement, and
only one sample was above the
minimum bacteria count," conti
nued the health officer. All other?
were much below ibe minimum r
quirement as to bacteria ... In
any series of milk examinations
from any dairy it is common for
one or more of them to show 8
high bacteria count," he comment
Recent complaints about the
milk distributed by the Morehea(
City dairy have been that the milk
went out in dirty bottles, that it
was of inferior quality, and it was
sour when delivered.
Mr. Scripture answered these
questions and explained the rea
sons for occasional cause of com
plaint to the satisfaction of the
health department, Dr. Ennett said,
and also to the satisfaction of the
following officials who attended
the meeting: Dr. K. P. B. Bonner,
chairman of the county board of
health, L. W. Hassell, mayor of
Beaufort, 0. W. Dill, Jr., mayor
of Morehead Oty, and a. v. Ful
fordT sanitaria '.
Dr. Ennett's report of the meet
ing appears here in full:
"Some of the complaints were
quite general and not susceptible
to a specific answer. Others were
specific, such as; milk in dirty
bottles, impure milk, watered milk,
small cream-line, bad taste or fla
vor, sour milk, etc.
' After enumerating the various
complaints, an effort was made to
find the basis for these complaints.
The first thing investigated wps
the records on file in the Health
Department Offices of the milk la
boratory examinations. Since the
Carteret County Health Depart
ment Office has no milk laboratory
of its own these examinations were
made by the State-District Milk
Laboratory in the Craven County
Health Department. (Samples for
examination are collected by the
local Health Department Sanitari
an at irregular times, purposely,
from the dairy plant, the dairy
truck, and the retailer'. There were
11 such examinations made by the
District Laboratory covering the
period from January 1,1948 to July
1, 1948.
"In addition to the reports nn
the amoles examined for the
Health Department, (samples are
also colected by the State Agricul

Morehead' s First Wholesale Grocery
By F. C. Salisbury
Back in 1911, J. T. Davenport
and R. T. Willis formed a part
nership for the conducting of a
wholesale grocery business in this
city. Mr. Davenport came to More
head City from Pamlico county in
1906 and opened a general store
In the building now occupied by
the Service Center, disposing of
his stock some five years later.
R. T. Willis who had been in
business for aeveral years had
just disposed of this stock bf mer
chandise to Frank and John Kline
when he formed the partnership
with Mr. Davenport
A two story wooden building
was erected by the firm on a lot
opposite the power plant for the
housing of their business. Later,
a one story addition was built on
the east side of the main structure
which was rented to Joe B. Lewis
who' for several years manufactur
ed a line of soft drinks.
After a few months time, Mr.
Willis withdrew from the firm to
return to the retail business. He
erected the two-story brick block
now occupied by Theodore Econo
mon. This wai the first brick
building in the 700 block. , Mr.
Willis conducted his business at
this location for nearly twenty
yean before moving back to bit
former and present location.
dairies of the state, including Dixie
Dairy, and these reports from the
Agriculture Department were fur
nished to the respective Local
Health Departments. The report
rather than rising to the top as
from the Agriculture, on Dixie
Dairy, on file in the Local Health
Department, was submitted at the
meeting along with the reports
from the District Milk Laboratory.
All of these renorts were compared
with the Milk Ordinance rrqui'e
ment, adopted by the Local Health
Department, for grade A pasteur
ized milk; and it was found ihM
the Dixie Dairy milk rated much
above the minimum standard of
the Milk Ordinance nnrl icii'arlv -s
to butter fat and low bacteria
count. No sample was below the
minimum butter fat requirement,
and only one sample was above
the minimum bacteria count. All
others being much below the mini
mum requirement as to bnptcria
As a matter of information we
might add that in any scries of
milk examinations it is common
for one or more of them to show a
high bacteria count, even from the
best of dairies.
"In connection with milk being
sent out in dirty bottles, Mr.
Scripture admitted that this con
dition did occur at intervals, even
though he made eery effort to
prevent it; he. however, promised
to re-double his efforts nlon this
line. He called attention to the
fact though, that many consumers
seem to pay little attention to the
requirement that they, the con
sumers, return the milk bottles
clean. He said that some consu
mers actually use the milk bottles
as containers for other substances
some bottles being returned Tvith
evidences that paint, varnish, etc.,
had been put in them.
"As to the taste of the milk, the
fact was brought out that at cer
tain seasons of the year pastures
may contain young onions, garlic,
sour weed, etc., and that this flavor
or taste was carried over into 1h
milk, though it in no way effected
the purity of the milk. (The milk
ordinance has no regulation gov
erning the taste of milk due to
"In the discussion it was brought
out that old milk, on a few occas
sions, had been shipped to the
Dixie Dairy, but the facj that it
was old had not been discovered
by the dairy before the milk w.ts
distributed. However, it appeared
that the most frequent cause of the
consumer getting old or soured
milk was due to a condition be
yond - the control of the Dixie
Dairy; for instance, the milk truck
might deliver the milk in good con
dition, but the housewife would
allow the milk to stand on the
doorstep for several hours before
being put in the refrigerator; in
other instances the milk in crates
brought to the retail merchant
were oftened allowed to sit on the
floor unduly lone before being
placed in the refrigeration box; in
another instance.' the householder

the county is just about complete,
Mr. May reported. Approximate

dred acres were planted then, 500
more than this year.
Several farmers overplanted
their allotment but these fields
