of a foundation program. Under
the program, the other 10 to 30
per cent would be made up from
local taxes collected by the coun

Proponents of the plan point out
that such a system is nothing new.

By F. C. Salisbury
Back in 1913 when Morehead
City was enjoying a period of ex
pansion in its commercial activi
ties, business interests were of the
opinion that another bank ' was
needed to promote and carry on
the city's expanding growth.
Previous to that time the Bank
of Morehead City had been organ
ized and on March 24, 1909 opened
for business. The capital stock at
that time was given as $10,000.
Four years later, on January 27,
1913, the Marine Bank came into
existence, having been organized
with a capital stock of $15,000. Of

Carteret county is one of those
counties where good citizenship
and a low crime rate are reflected
in the willingness of its citizens to
perform grand jury service. Judge
Paul Frizzelle. of Snow Hill, told
the members of the grand jury
as the October term of superior

After calling upon grand jurors
selected for duty to submit rea
j sons why they should not serve,
I if any. Judge Frizzelle expressed
gratification that only four asked
to be excused, two of whom re
ceived his consent.
In delivering his charge to the
jury, the judge remarked that in
counties where men selected for
' jury duly offer poor excuses ;nd
want to shirk the duty, there is an
unusual amount of crime.
Conversely, he observed, in
counties where "trilling and in
consequential excuses" are not of

"I hae not heard an excuse of

Judge Frizzelle said he was im
pressed with the smallness of the
Carteret county criminal docket
for superior court trial this term.
Ten cases are on the docket.
"One of the chief explanations
for them," he remarked, "is that
you have good officials in this

commend the various court offic

complimented Judge Lambert Mor

ing to recall an experience which
he and Mr. Davis had together as
lawyaaa-oetore tea bar in 1913.
The superior court solicitor, W.
J. Rundy, the clerk. A. II. James,
and Sheriff Holland also received
tributes from the judge as he ad
dressed the grand jury.

Two specific duties were urged
upon the grand jury. Judge Friz
zelle cautioned them to inspect
carefully the school buses to in
sure the STfety nf the children,
and he reminded them that the
law requires them to visit all pub
lic offices for a check up.

emphatically as I can that every

For twenty years this institution
helped serve the thanking needs of

An innovation in Piedmont ser
vice was announced recently by T.

booking a reservation on a iPcd
mont flight should request the
agent on duty to obtain a hotel
reservation at his destination, pro
viding, of course, that destination
is one of the cities served by Pied

to secure the desired hotel accom

Mr. Davis announced today that
the last three consecutive months
of profitable operation had more
than offset - previous deficits of
the earlier months of operation.
Since inauguration of scheduled

It was further pointed out that
as of Aug. 31 Piedmont has accu
