County Draft Board Chairman Requests
Immediate Registration of Men, 18 - 26
Wiley Taylor, county draft board
chairman, has requested that all
men required to register in the 19
48 Selective Service act present
themselves at one of the county
draft board offices as early as pos
sible regardless of age.
Mr. Taylor added that after this
week, offices in Atlantic and New
port will be closed, after which
all men must register at either the
Beaufort or Morehead City office.
It makes no difference, he said, at
which of the four offices now open
the men choose to register.
Reporting on the first day of re
gistration, Mr. Taylor said that
about 35 men had registered in
Beaufort by noontime and that a
similar number signed up in More
head City. At press time he had
not received pny reports from
either Atlantic or Newport.
Mr. Taylor said the draft board
needs additional help and anyone
wishing to volunteer as a registrar
will be welcomed.
Heading the four county offices
are Mrs. Ruby Holland, Beaufort;
Jesse Staton, Morehead City; Mrs.
Prudie M. Willis, Atlantic; and
Leon A. Mann, Newport. v
Air Parcel Post
The advent of speedier-nation-wide-worldwide
air parcel post
service tomorrow brings back to
minds of old-timers the introduc
tion of similar operations 35 years
ago. It was in 1913, according to
Postmaster Harold Webb of More
head Cltyvfhat parcel post first
Trade, its appearance in the United
The service at that time was
established primarily to aid farm
ers and villages located off the
beaten paths, in expediting their
products to market and, in turn, re
ceiving goods from larger cities.
However, mail order houses and
other establishments were quick to
realize its value.
Transportation facilities in those
days were slow and tedious. Motor
driven vehicles were few and the
roads which they traversed were
frequently impassable. Also, trains
were giving off more sparks and
smoke than speed. There were no
commercial planes in these days
and only the foolhardy visioned
the rapid approach of (his Air Age,
remarked the postmaster.
Then it took days to transport
parcel post packages across the
country. Some parcels were forced
to go by virtually every movable
conveyance before they reached
their destination particularly to
the more remote sectors.
From that modest beginning, par
cel post has grown to become an
integral cog in the far-flung Ameri
can postal operations, commented
Mr. Webb. Its annual poundage,
keeping step with the progress of
transportation, has soared from a
few million to billions of pounds
of. assorted commodities.
Still determined to employ the
fastest means of transportation to
move the mails, the Post Office de
partment will add the link neces
sary to give the United States the
world's most highly specialized
doorstep delivery service with the
launching of the new nationwide
worldwide air parcel post, said
Health Department Issues
A statistical report on the im
munization work of the county
health department in June was re
leased yesterday by the local
health department, and the num
ber who turned out for vaccinations
was described by Dr. N. Thomas
Ennett, health officer, as "not a
verv good showing."
The statistics drawn up were
based on immunization work done
outside of the. health office in va
rious community clinics throughout
the county. There were 30 clinics
A totnl of 238 persons were im
munized against typhoid, 39 for
diptheria, 30 for whooping cough,
and three for small pox.
-, Dr. Emett accounts for the small
turnout by saying that people
usually do not take advantage of
vaccinations of this type unless
there is an Imminent threat of di
sease, such as an epidemic. V.
There is also another possibility,
Dr. Ennett added. Many persons
may have been vaccinated private

The survey of Inside shrimp now
being made aims at determination
of migration, growth rate, density
of population, establishment of
shrimp stations from Southport to
Roanoke Island. These stations
will be visited once every two
weeks and an effort made to find
out where shrimp are taken.
Dr. Eugene Roelofs, of the insti
tute, this week visited the Chowan
river, Roanoke river and the head
waters of the Albemarle looking
for possible pollution that would
affect shad, herring, and striped
bass. Dr. Alfred Chestnut, of the
research board, has just returned
from one of his monthly runs from
JUaufort across the mouth of the
Neuse and Pamlico to Stumpy
Point. Hydrographic stations
across the mouth of the Neuse and
Pamlico and up the Hyde county
coast have alread been established.
The plans are to go as far north
as Croatan and Roanoke Sounds,
and establish a series of stations
on the sound side of the reef, all
to be visited at least once a month.
The purpose is to gather exact
data on hydrography of sound wa
ters, on the basis of which new
studies on fish, Crustacea and mol
luscs can be made.
A completely-equipped trailer
with outboard and skiff, thermo
meters, water bottles, and nets, is
being used in the survey, as well
as the "Victory" (which has not
yet been renamed), a 38-foot-beam,
Chrysler-powered craft built in
Connepticut and bought locally.
The larger boat, which replaces
the Reliance, draws but three feet

A new case of polio in Car

end when W. Preston Willis, Jr.,
3-year-old white youngster from
Williston, was diagnosed as a
polio case Saturday.
Dr. N. Thomas Ennett, county
health officer, said that the Wil
lis child received the quickest
service rendered a polio victim
thus far this year. The onset
was on Saturday when Preston
complained of bark pains during
the night. A doctor was called
and he was diagnosed as a polio
rase and sent to James Walker

During the second week of East
ern North Carolina flue-cured to
bacco sales, prices by gra'des were
steady to higher in most cases than
the first two days of the season.
However, the United States and
North Carolina Departments of
Agriculture report a heavy influx
of tips and lower quality primings
fte the tnVkrta-t caused t considtit
able increase in inferior offerings.
This resulted In an average of
only $47.77 per hundred for the
35,152,041 gross pounds marketed
the week ending August 27. The
average was $3.03 below that estab
lished last week. For the first
seven days of the season gross
sales reached 50,615,035 averaging
$48.69. In spite of the light volume
sold early in the week, season
sales were running heavier than
the comparable period last season
with the general average $5.31
Comparative prices with the first
two days show increases ranging
from 25 cents to $5.00 per hundred.
Most were $1.00 to $2.00. The gains
were principally for lugs, prim
ings, and lower leaf grades. Bet
ter quality leaf and low orange
cutters were slightly weaker with
losses generally at $1.00.
The proportion ot lugs sold de
creased about one-half from last
week. More leaf, primings, and
nondescript appeared. More of

or as many tips were marketed.

Mary Dempsey, statisician of the
National Tuberculosis association,
writes in the NTA's Bulletin.
This, she says, is the first time
the country's TB death toll has
been below 50,000. There were
50,911 deaths in 1946. Wrong ideas
about tuberculosis are one reason

is that a change of climate is the

these to carry more than a 45-foot
boat, which under the former law

He remarked further that ther
Is already a limit on the size of

trolling the number of oysters
taken than the carrying capacity
of the boat. Dredges are limited
to 100 pounds.
There were complaints also that
all dealers are not cooperating in
the state's oyster shell program. It
was reported that Hodges Broth

to the state their share of shells
and it was further stated that this
concern is preparing to sell its oys

state of tax revenue.
The matter was referred to the
