C Every time there's a large fire and a logical reason is not
t Hdefinitely established immediately as to its cause, there is al-
Pays the rumor that the fire was
They are the sensationalists who set forth that reason for a
iouse or building burning, but simply because some people
jump to that conclusion is no reason to discount it as sensation
alism where there are fires of mysterious origin.
The loss of the White Oak school is a major disastc in the
county school system. The board of education is operating on a
shoestring, and the thought of rebuilding a school at Bogue is as
plausible as picking figs off an apple tree. Even if the county
had the money to invest immediately in a new school anywhere
Mw-it would probably be in a large centrally-located consolidated
one, the type the state says must eventually be in all rural sys
tems. Evidently there is a quirk in the minds of certain individ
uals which tells them that the way to get something new or bet
ter in the way of public building is to get rid of the structure
already standing. The easiest way to accomplish this is by the
use of fire. Dynamite is a bit too dangerous in the hands of a
'novice. The fact that arson is a criminal offense or that a new
""building may NOT rise from the ashes of the old evidently doesn't
enter the picture.
Then again, criminal offense or not, what does it matter if
there's a law against deliberately destroying property by fire
when no effort is made by anyone to investigate the burning
other than to kick the ashes and remark, "Yep, quite a fire,
The typical attitude seems to be, "What good would an in
vestigation do?" Referring to the type of investigations usually
made, this attitude is undoubtedly correct.
Citizens howl and wail because their youngsters aren't get
ting the proper kind of education and then sit back and yawn
when one of the major school plants in the county is destroyed
by fire of "undetermined origin."
' As long as such lassitude persists, there wil; be other fires
similar to the White Oak school fire.

To 'he Editor:
. What a i inspiring place this is!
I fcol like writinc home about it.
Coming back after thirteen years
I feel again the thrill I had for
gotten. Liberty of spirit is still
here. You see it. You feci it. No
wonder this went university has
grown so much during the last
twenty years and is still Prnwin?.
It now reaches out among the trees
to the amphi-thoaire on the easi
and past the Kenan Stadium and
tennis courts on the southeast.
Four huge dormitories nearing
completion on that side will cer-,
tainly house everybody.
One feels that the university
grows upon its democratic spirit
and that it is expanding over the
entire state nnd even beyond to
the corners of the world. With a
heart like this North Carolin
should not lose its way in the maze
of worldly affairs which seem to
entangle neople in this day. The
spirit of truth is all that a people
needs. Once you have that you
can sec the gold mines in your
own yard and do not desire to
grab and shove in order to get
your neighbor's. Truth is found
by open minds.
The center of the enmpus has
not changed so much but there
are improvements. Old South has
a beautiful collonadp facing the li
brary. Swain Hall has been ren
novated and now houses the exten
sion division. The veterans unit is
just back of that, composed of
many trailers which house their
families. A. id Peabody has be
come Veteran's administration. The
Navy has made its mark with
many small white buildings beyond
Old South. It also built Lenoir,
which is a fine brick cafeteria
now used by the university.
The new Morehead planetarium
being built on the north campus
near Graham Memorial will be one
of the most beautiful buildings
here. There are more improve
ments than I can describe now.
But as 1 have said the beauty
and the wonder of a place like this
is not so much its buildings as its

NEWPORT, N. C Finally I took
time oil on Monday to stop

Howard's deer family, before the

fawns nosed verv nieelv and his
Summer antlers should show up
good in a picture. The mother deer
also posed very obligingly but
those fawns, they scampered all
around their lot and just like some
children I have tried to shoot with
my camera, they would not remain
still or pose. So I shot them on
Howard has the deer family in
his aarane at the western limifsf
of this community between Cherry
Point and Morehead City on High
way 70. I thought it was strange
that he could keep the deer penned
up and he explained that the wild
life authorities had granted him
permission to keep them in cap
tivity. If they had not given him this
permission both of the adult deer,
which he has had since they were
fawns, would hae died. The doe or
female he rescued after it was
struck by an automobile several
months ago. The buck, as a tiny
fawn, was on the verge of being de
voured by a pack of hounds when
Howard saved its life.
The new fawn, the twins which
are now part of the family were
born in captivity. Some person con
nected with a northern city's zoo
stopped by to see the deer family
one day. He Was very much sur
prised to learn that a fawn had
been born in captivity, and even
more so when he learned that the
two little fellows in Howard's pen
were twins. "In our loo we have
never successfully reared a fawn
lo maturity," the zoo man told
How?rd. It appears that Howard's
baby deer will be reared success
fully by their parents the old
buck and doe.
To get the deer to pose for the
picture, Howard attracted their
attention by feeding them peanut
cheese sandwiches and water
melon. I learned that one of the
favorite foods of the animals are
For some time while making
trips from Manteo to Morehead
City and return I have been on
the lookout for what I would call
an appropriate model to be posed
working in a tobacco field. It has
been years since I shot pictures
of girls working in tobacco. The
. last three I used for models in this
connection were residents of Beau
fort. All of them are now married
and each of 'hem l as children al
most large enougn to pose for
I asked someone. here In New
port where the Garner triplets
lived. Learning their house was
nearby I dropped in to see if they
would pose for a picture in a to
bacco field. They were more than
willing to do this and, as matter
of fact, each of the triplets has
been "working in tobacco" as they
called it since their school closed
for vacation time.
The triplets, June, Jean and Joan
are now 11 years old. They are
the daughters of Chief of Police
Charles Garner and Mrs. Garner
of Newport. They are in the sev
enth grade at the local school
and talking about pretty, the girls
are that, and they are- as alike as
peas in a pod..
First time I made their picture
was 11 years ago. At that time
they were only a few hours old.
Two of them weighed three pounds
nnd 12 ounces and the other
weighed three pounds and four
ounces. The Garners were not in
prosperous circumstances at the
time, so The Beaufort News, which
I was editing started a Triplet
Fund in order that they might be
taken to the hospital for their first
days here on earth.
They are the picture of health
and always have been. When they
were two years old I made a pic
