Local Fishery Biologists Defend
IMorth Carolina fishermen
(The following article reflects
the opinion of biologists and
fishery experts of this area and
their reaction to a recent article
written by Miss Lorraine Low
den, guest columnist for Aycock
Brown in his column "Covering
the Waterfront." This column
appeared in Friday's issue of
THE NEWS-TIMES).
Journalists sometimes rush in
where experts fear to tread. This,
if local reaction be any indication,
is what happened in the case of a
recent guest columnist in "Cover
ing the Waterfront," Miss Lorraine
Lowden, formerly of Beaufort, now
of Newport News, Va.
Granted that most of the opini
ons resulted from conversations
with Virginia authorities, it be
hooves both Columnist Brown and
Contributor Lowden to give both
sides of the story. Inasmuch cs
they haven't, local experts have
been requested to fill in the pic
ture. Worthy of note is the fact
that those going to bat for Caro
lina shrimpers are Carolinians by
choice and adoption, not circum
stance of birth. This, and a matter-of-fact
scientific outlook, should
exempt them from the onus of
mere myopic sectionlism. Several
biologists have lent weight to the
evidence by contributing factual
information. Others have fe't so
strongly that both sides of the
question should be aired that they
have spoken out, by mail and for
publication.
One official, who has spent
many years in close contact with
local fishermen, points out that
more shrimp are caught in states
south of here in a few weeks
than in the wnole season in North
Carolina. The statement that "in
a number of the inland waters of
North Carolina, the dead fish cn
the bottom of the inlets, bays, and
rivers, are reported to be so nu
merous that shrimpers can not
even pull their-nfl rfbjrpugb iMlinu theories rewriting .-from half-
water" brought fortll chuckWHrtfths and empirical thinking. ;
Under Severe' Handicap, Miss Martha
Leads Useful Life In Beaufort
Rotarians Hear
Heal Officer
Dr. N. T. Ennett, county health
officer, deplored sanitation con
ditions in Morehead City, Beau
fort, and Atlantic Beach and urged
for local support of increased state
appropriations to health depart
ments at an address before More
head City Rotary club Thursday
night.
Thirty-eight Rotarians attended
the supper meeting at the recre
ational center.
Citing the need of ' increased
nursing and medical service for
the schools and additional sanita
tion services, Dr. Ennett told the
results of surveys of sanitary facili
ties in Morehead City and Beau
fort. Out of 1500 homes represented
in the Morehead City survey, Dr.
Ennett said, 51 or 3.4 per cent
have no toilet facilities whatso
ever. In Beaufort it was found
that 37 out of 1,000 homes repre
sented, or 3.7 per cent, have no
sanitary facilities.
"I don't think there's anything
comparable to health work but the
church," Dr. Ennett declared.
Prospective residents in a town
want to know three things first,
'the county health doctor said. Aft
er inquiring about the schools and
the churches, they want to know
the health conditions.
Dr. Ennett said he received a
copy of an editorial which appear
ed in a Kinston paper, and later
a letter from the Kinston. editor,
" criticizing sanitation conditions In
this area. The editorial merely
mentioned "a certain area," he
said, but the letter was very spe
cific, referring to unpleasant ex
periences which the editor had
had in an ice cream dispensing
place at Atlantic Beach this sum
mer. '.-..
Conditions in eating places
could be improved, Dr. Ennett
stated, if the health department
could afford to have more inspect
ing personnel -
The health doctor charged that

recreational advantages but fail to
mention health. ; v , t'
Something needs to be done
bout the softening of the water
here, Dr. Ennett declared.'- Many

and the remark rom one official
that he had "not heard that one."
Working on the basis of figures
given in the article, which found
its way into print in a number of
state papers, the six and .wo-ihk'ds
billion fish destroyed would
amount to seven times the annual
catch in all America! Should mis
be so, boats couldn't ply the
sounds much less pull nets!
"Using their logic," explains Dr.
Eugene R. Roelofs, fisheries spe
cialist of Morehead City, "all the
small fish growing to adult size
would mean that there would be
no room for water."
"Assuming that shrimpers kill
half the small fish, that leaves an
other six and two-thirds billion for
them to calch much more than
is produced in the whole country."
"We don't know,?' he continued,
"but we hope to find out, on the
basis of careful observation and
reliable statistics, iust what the ef
fect of this thinning-out is. Con
clusions worked out in regard to
haddock, in England, have shown
that it is, actually, efficient re
moving competition for food
among the small fish."
"Furthermore, wurt.eis in Mary
land have evidence to show that
adult croakers from Chesapeake
Bay go out and spawn north of
Hatteras, offshore, and the young
return to the Bay. Thus there is
some proof that the populations
don't mix and Carolina croakers
never get as far north as Virginia."
Adhering to the theory that
scarcity results from productivity
cycles and natural phenomena, ra
ther than overfishing, arc Martin
Burkenroad, internationally-known
expert on shrimp, and Dr. H. .1.
Humm, director of the Duke Ma
rine Laboratory on Pivers Island.

"The power of the press as an
influencing factor in fishery regu
lations is 1,000 times greater than
all the marine biologists combin
ed" he states. "Your article (Miss
Lowden's) could lead to the estab
lishment of laws which would work
against the best interests of the
.fishing industry."
"Assuming that the estimate is
correct, Dr. Humm continues, "that
each peck of shrimp caught results
in the destruction of 20.000 lbs.
of fish ... of the 20,000 pounds,
NONE is food fish in the sense
that they are of edible .size. Of
that 20,000 pounds, a large portion
are fish of species that have ab
solutely no food value; never have,
probably never will. Take "pin
fish," for example, 1 have gone out
on shrimp trawlers many times to
obtain specimens and I have seen
the trawl come in with 99 per cent
pin fish. Is that waste? Take the
clear-nosed skate; .... at some
times of the year it makes up a
considerable portion of the total
weight of the "trash. I think
this theory worked out by some
of 'he older commercial fisher
men that "20,000 pounds of food
fish are destroyed for each peck
of shrimp caught' needs to be re
vised. Such revision should come
before publication."
Dr. Humm points out further
that "if there were a shrimp fish
ery along the Virginia coast equal
to that of North Carolina, would
the Virginia fishermen , enact
for their region the sort of closed
season they propose for North Ca
rolina? You say "South Carolina
cooperated by declaring a closed
season on shrimp in all 'its inland
waterways to allow the production
of small fish to get back to nor
mal" .... Before being closed,
how many shrimp were caught in
the inland waterways of South
Carolina? ....

"I've not accomplished as much
as I would like," was the modest
remark of Miss Martha Jones,
after relating the story of her life
while seated in the living room of
her little home on Queen street
Friday morning. Miss Martha,
who is 42, has been totally blind
since she was 10 years old.
She was born in Grimesland in
Pitt county Nov. 29, 1905. For a
short time she lived with her par
ents in little Washington and then
came to Beaufort when she was six
years old. "s .:J -
Her education, from. "kindergar
ten through two years ot college,
was obtained at the State School
for the Blind, Raleigh. The sum
mer months were spent at home
with her parents.
Miss Martha could see, although
not perfectly, the first few years
of her life and she can remember
yet how this world of ours looks.
When she was just three days
old. she related, her eyes were in
flamed but the doctor to whom
her mother took her did not know
exactly what to do. When she was
a month old, she was taken to an
other doctor in Washington, N. C.
In the meantime her mother had
tried every remedy possible, what
friends or neighbors would sug
gest. By the time the Washington
doctor saw her, however, he said
it was too late, there was nothing
he could do to save her sight.
The sight of a brother and sis
ter, both more than 10 years older
than she, is normal.
Miss Martha has taught piano
and voice lessons. At the school
tn Raleigh these subjects were
taught, as well as typing. Boys
are taught piano tuning, playing of
band instruments, weaving chair
seats and similar skills.
Miss Martha's first music pupil
was her mother. "She learned to
read notes to me and there has
been no one since who helped me
as much as she," declared the
blind woman. Her mother died
four years ago.
April a year ago Miss Martha
moved into the little four-room
home built especially for her.
Through The. Beaufort News and
other interested persons and or
ganisations, she said. $2S8 was rais
ed to help; pay for the home. How
ever, she is still making monthly
payments on it from the $30 pen
sion received every four weeks
from the State.

Court Officials
Receive Pay Raise
County Board Increases
Salaries of Recorder, So
licitor Salaries of the county recorder
and the county solicitor were rais
ed by the county board at its Oc
tober meeting yesterday morning
in the courthouse.
The raise, Dr. K. P. B. Bonner,
chairman, pf the board, pointed
out, was'justified by the increased
returns from recorder's court. Re
corder Lambert Morris's salary
will increase from $162 per month
to $185 and the solicitor's from
$132 per month to $150.
The salary of secretary to the
home agent was increased $15 per
month. This was justified, the
commissioners believed, because
the new home acent secretary is
Miss Josephine Stanton who for
merly worked in the auditor's of
fice at a rate of pay higher than
that paid the home agent secre
tary. No replacement has been
made in the auditor's office.
Most of the other matters con
sidered by the commissioners dealt
with land transactions. The board
'accepted one 'half of the 1945 tax
on the property at 208 Marsh
street, bought from the county in
1945 by Luther O'Neal. This set
tlement was made because there
was irregularity in the manner
payment of taxes was "handled
when the property was purchased.
Luther W. Guthrie who express
ed a desire to redeem his property
which has taxes owing on it since
1927 was told that he could do so
at a cost of $150, to be paid to
the county within 90 days.
Tax certificates on property in
Newport - township were assigned
to Mrs. Clara Rouse, Kinston.
These certificates cover the years
1948, 1947, and 1948.
For $100 a portion of property
northeast of Beaufort was deeded
to the North Carolina Pulp com
pany. Before passing into nanas
of the county this property was
owned by Beaufort Lumber and
Manufacturing company.
Dr. Bonner requested that the
auditor, James, Potter, investigate
the cost of building fireproof
vaults for records in the auditor's
office and also the possibility of
enlarging the vault in which rec
ords of the register of deeds are
kept.
At the request of Ed Piver and
Dr. C. E. Paden, North River cem
etery was declared a public ceme
tery and the road leading to it a
part of the county system of roads.
Complaints that John Johnson,
custodian at the court house, spent
his time in fishing and neglecting
his duties at the court house, were
referred to Commissioner C. Z.
Chappell for investigation.
Commissioners present yester
day besides Mr. Chappell and Dr.
Bonner, were Lionel Pelletier, and
Wallace G. Styron.

Cemetery Group
Issues Report
Approximately $1,000 Spent
This Year In Restoring
Burial Plot
Appearing below is the report
of the Beaufort Cemetery associa
tion, released today for publica
tion: A year ago the religious and
civic organizations of the town or
ganized the Beaufort Cemetery
Restoration Association to do
something about the old graveyard
which has fallen into a state un
worthy of the town.
The Plan
The group had no precedent for
their, work but decided to make u
census of the graves then writ"
those with a heart interest because
of loved ones buried there to res
tore the graves in which they were
interested. An appeal was then
to be made to the church and or
ganizations for a pledge of $25 a
year for upkeep and restjralion
of common features such as wall
and gates.
How the Plan Has Worked
On October 22, 1947, Dr. Thomas
Ennett of the Rotoary Club, Huius
Sewell and Odcl Merrill of the Jay-
cees, David Merrill of the Town
Board. M L. Davis of the Baptist
Church, and Mrs. Rose Merrill of
the Womans Club listed the
graves. The letters were sent out
and beginning with an immediate
ly reply from the Thomas girls
through their mother, Mrs. Mary
Thoomas, authorizing work on the
graves of Dr. and Mrs. James Man
ney and Nancy French, 136 stones
have been cleaned and repaired by
those interested, vaults have been
mended, walls repaired, wrought
iron fences restored, and with the
cooperation of the town, trees
whitewashed, dead trees taken out,
broken fences removed, grounds
raked, and the cemetery wall put
in perfect condition from the Town
Hall around Purvis Chapel, the
Methodist Church, and to the west
corner of the Baptist Church, and
then the whole has been painted.
A committee is now working on
suitable gates for the south and
east entrances. Approximately
$1000 has been spent, $621 of
which represents work done by in
dividuals on family lots.
Looking Forward
Those who are able and willing
to have lots restored have about
all responded. Looking to the fu
ture, some means must be taken
to restore old stones of those with
no one living who is interested
especially those of people buried
in the 1700's.
The gates unuer consideration
must be worthy of the purpose
they are to serve. Estimates on
hand indicate that they will cost
more than the sum now in the
treasury.
The committee must plan for
more adequate cleaning in short
get out the briars that have pre
empted the place so some plan
may be made to turf and mow it.
To do all this will require money
another $1000 for the present
season. For that reason the as
sociation will shortly give those
not already represented in the
work an opportunity to have a part
in it.
Rags Catch Fire
A bundle of smouldering rags at
Dale's Paint shop on Bridges st.
brought firemen to the scene, at
2:30 a.m. Saturday. The situation
was brought under control before
the blaze spread. The night police
man saw smoke coming from the
paint shop and turned in the
alarm.

Native Son Talks
With President
Graham L. Davis, son of Dr. and
Mrs. J.. J. Davis, Smyrna, who is
president of the American Hospi
tal association, conferred recently
with President Truman on com
pulsory health insurance.
Other hospital officials compris
ing the delegation which visited
the chief executive included Oscar
R. Ewing, social security adminis
trator, Paul C. Elliott, president of
the American Protestant Hosp;tl
association, and the Rev. Get-rgc
Lewis Smith, president of 'he Ca
tholic Hospital assocoiation.
The President designated Mr.
Ewing as his representative to dis
cuss with the three national presi
dents of hospital associations their
objections to the compulsory
health insurance recommendation
in Mr. Ewing's 10-year plan for the
nation's health.
Mr. Ewing's recommendations
for compulsory Government insur
ance, Mr. Davis told reporters
after the visit to the President,
had given rise to fears that the
hospitals would come under Gov
ernmen control, and that their ser
vice would deteoriorate.
President Truman, he said, em
phasized that his own intentions
were entirely too the contrary;
that the private hospitals would in
no way be endangered by the com
pulsory insurance plan.
The hospital group also report
ed that with regard to the nation's
health facilities Mr. Davis had
made the appeal: "Let's lake this
thing out of partisan politics "
Mr. Davis said that the hospitals
had always worked with the Gov
ernment, that they would continue
to cooperate, and that they ap
proved many of the recommenda
tions of the . Ewing report.
Mr. Davis said that President
Truman asked him, to submit a
memorandum on his association's
suggestions for combining Govern
ment and voluntary activity to
meet the nation's health needs.
Dr. Davis, Mr. Davis's father,
practiced medicine h Beaufort for
about 16 years.

and 2 Veterans
Under Ihe supervision of Hoy
Kiihanks, ex-commander ol .ir
teret Post No. 99, American Le
gion, a service record of veteran
of world war I and world war 11
is being prepared.
When finished, this bound vo
lume with pictures of the men in
the armed forces, their .service re
cord, and other feature will be
available at a cost ol several dol
lars, Mr. Kubanks said.
He requests that all veterans
bring him their picture snapshots
will do -and the information about
their, service in the Army, Navy,
Marines, or Air Corps. There is
no charge, he emphasized, to have
a picture placed in the service re
cord. To all members of Post No. 99,
Mr. Kubanks announced yesterday,
photostatic copies of their dis
charge papers will be made free
ol charge if they pay '49 dues.
These copies will then be placed
in the office of C. L. Beam, vet
erans' service officer.
This will be helpful to both the
men and the service officer, Mr.
Eubanks explained, because vet
erans go to Mr. Beam to make out
various applications or fill out gov
ernment forms, but fail to take
with them the information carried
on the discharge paper. If Mr.
Beam has a copy in his office, it
will facilitate matters for everyone
concerned, he said.
Men turning in photos for the
printed service record should take
them to Eubanks' studio, Turner
street. Discharge papers, of which
photostats will be made, should be
taken there also.

Decides to Crack
Playing 'Hooky'
The board of education at its
October meeting yesterday after
noon in the court house annex de
cided to rigidly enforce school at
tendance. Too many youngsters
of school age simply stay out of
school, I). Mason, member of the
board, declared, and plans were
made to hire a truant officer.
Number of pupils attending
school each day determines the
number of teachers the state al
lots to each county.
Discussing a proposed and re

suggested bv II. L. Joslyn. super
intendent of schools, school would
close June 10. The calendar orig
inally adopted during the summer
had lo be scrapped because of the
delay in opening due to polio.
Mr. Joslyn reported to the board
that a total of $1,154,000 would be
needed in the county to put the
school system in A-l shape. This
estimate was made by Mr. Joslyn
at the request of state authorities
studying the school situation.
The superintendent also report
ed that the plan for schooling for
mer White Oak pupils had been
approved by the state. Those pu
pils north and northeast of Broad
Creek are attending Camp Glenn
and Morehead City schools while

To accommodate the additional
