Band Future Looks Brighter
J ;; With a fultime band instructor, Morehead City school now
has an Al band potential. There has always been the support
by parents, teachers, and pupils themselves but there was lack
of the proper type of leadership.
This bears out the fact discovered in a recent survey by the
vAmerican Music conference that American people, in general,
are overwhelmingly in favor of musical instrument instruction
offered In tho schools.
It was learned that the average adult believes that children
should start faking music lessons at the age of 7 years. How
ever, it was iilso discovered that among children 9 years of a;;e
and under only 3.5 per cei of the boys and 5.6 per cent of tho
girls are studying music. ChHdren were found to be most active
musically in the lff-li bracket.-.
Full support of the school campaign for adult band mem
berships means that more children will have the opportunity to
play in the band and those who do wake the grade cm be better
Contrary to popular belief, it w learned in the American
Music conference survey that we are not ja mad. Uoogy-wooay
and jive arc least popular throughout the Jpopulation as a whole
and church music and hymns are like! better than any other typo
of music. Between these two in order of preference, air popular
dance music, old favorites and folk tunes, semi classical, cowboy
and hillbilly, and classical. '
The church was also napied as the most important factor out
side the home in stimulating an Interest in music Tied for sec
ond place were movies and musical shows and the schools.
According to the poll, 40 pep cent of American children
want to learn to play a musical Instrument, and only 10 per cent
are actually opposed to the idea.
This constitutes a vast number o( future musicians, not prod
igies, perhaps, but youngsters who iika music, who can appre
ciate it, and in spite of frequent 'and disonant practice sessions,
become able to entertain the family on their sax or clarinet.
On the Water in the Dark of the Noon

For as it is with men who have departed from this life, so
it is with ships that have gone down. On one night of the year
their spirits return.
Then these craft, incapable of sailing in the earthly
world, rise to the surface and once more, wrecked and battered
though they may be, ply the waves, ghostly trawlers, grey subma
rines, and hulking ships, the makings of a gruesome .fleet.
A few mariners have seen this spme-chilling armada, and
describe movements of the ships upon the water as elusive as
wisps of wind.
But regardless of routes the boats may, haunt, the smug
glers route from the Caribbean or the wall-known channels of
fishermen, dawn finds them once more below the waves, with
naught but a bewildered seagull crying his distress to the rising
sun as the last ripple closes over the spirit fleet,

NICE FACE Harry Truman
visited Raleigh last week, but as
you heard him and saw him it was
very difficult to realize that there
stood the President of the greatest
country on earth talking to you.
What kind of impressio.i did he
make? Well, Mrs. Norma Davis,
Raleigh housewife, uttered the
general feelings of most of the
thousands who saw President Tru
man during his 22-hour stay in the
Capital:, "I thought Mr. Truman
was a very pleasant man. I liked
his looks, He had one of the
friendliest smiles 1 have ever seen.
He looked as though he might be
a next-door neighbor instead of
the President of the United States.
"I believe that the majority of
the people who saw him liked liim
. . . His family made as good an
impression on ne as the president
did. I think they are line people."
NOTES Mrs. Harry Truman
is just as homely as the newsreels
and the magazines and the news
papers picture her. However, Mar
garet Truman is pretty, is much
taller than her mother, has nice
teeth, nice eyes, and is possessed
of a rather good figure in the long
stemmed, tomboyish manner. Her
face is much more mobile and ac
tive than either her mother's or
her father's. Each time her es
teemed father lifted his eyes and
departed from the written speech
in front of him Daughter Mar
garet seemed to wince, to frown
just a little, as much as to say:
"Well, I wonder what he's going
to pull this time."
As Truman uttered one of his
off-the-cuff remarks at the State
Fair speech, Margaret gave her
mother a vigorous elbow nudge
in the ribs
The President had not intended
speaking at the Fair in his origi
nal plan to visit Raleigh. Agri
culture Commissioner D. S. Col
trane ramrodded this when he
found that Jonathan Daniels had
persuaded Truman to come to Ra
leigh for the dedication of the
Three Presidents statue.

the new body will come from rural
areas. If Kerr Scott can find good

It begins to look as if W. B.
Austin, who lives in the outskirts
of Jefferson, in Ashe County, can
be one of the commissioners if he
wants to leave the State Board of
Agriculture. Another good bet is
Dr. R. E. Earp, who lives out from
Idfliua ill juiuiaiuu vuuuiy.
Scott has said repeatedly during
recent weeks, in private conversa
tion and-in public speeches, that
he is going to be dead sure his
highway commissioners see eye-to-eye
with him on the needs of rural
roads. So, the best thing you can
do all of you folks is to find
a good solid rural citizen, who
lives on a dirt road and who went
down the line for Scott, and start
promoting him through Scott sup
porters in your district.

State Board of Education has re

saying, "Poor John. What in the

that Harden had resigned his job
as secretary to Gov. R. G. Cherry
to handle Umstead's publicity.
Before the official vote had been
tabulated, out came the announce
ment that John Harden was be
coming public relations chief with
Burlington Mills. The salary was
not disclosed, but Raleigh hears it
is in the neighborhood of $12,000
per year. If you recall, Ed Ran

in his Washington office. The cry
went up for Rankin. He went with
Burlington Mills. Tom Wagstaff
succeeded Rankin with the High
way Commission. He resigned a
few days ago. He is joining
Rankin and Harden at Burlington
Mills. The rumor now is that Bill
Snyder, who took over Hardens
old job with Cherry, will go with
Burlington Mills in January.
THAT CAR Early this year
when it' looked as if Charles M.
Johnson would certainly be the
next Governor, an order was placed
for a new Cadillac to replace in
January the low-slung Packard
bought for Gov. Cherry in 1944.
The Cadillac pame through, it is
understood, compleje with the of
ficial North Carolina seal on the
hub caps. You know what hap
pened in the second Primary. New
caps were, put on the wheels and
the ear was put un for sale
through the regular channels.
Now Kerr Scott savs he will not
put the State to the expense
(around $4,000) of a new Govern
or's car, adding that the present
Packard is good enough for him.
Incidentally, the Packard has been
just a little too ostentatious for
Plain Citizen Cherry, and it is
seldom seen out of the Garage. He
prefers the little Chevrolet.
If Scott docs agree to a rrw
limousine, chances arait will be
a Lincoln. For years he has driven
nothing but Mercuiys and Fords.

They were both for him.
