term and expressed approval of a
recent NEWS-TIMES editorial, en
titled "Grand Juries Are in a Rut,"
published Oct. 26, H. L. Joslyn,

The NEWS-TIMES editorial cri
ticized the grand jury report for
indulging in "routine criticism of

maintained, "is well known to the
board of education, the superinten
dent of schools and readers of THE

thing. Mr. Joslyn, who said he agreed
with this view, stated that they

they've got."

Pictured here in front of the cathedral, Cologne, Germany, are
Earl and Marianne with Marianne's parents. Reading from left to
htfSfcl- ' Frau "Bjedacheld,
Another war bride has come to
make her home in Carteret county.
With the addition of Mrs. Earl
Murdoch to the populace of Wild
wood, Germany shares the honors
with England and Australia.
Mrs. Murdoch, the former Ma
rianne Buedschcid, of Cologne, ar
rived early last Friday morning in
New York Cily by plane. Due to
the serious illness of her husband's
father, the couple could not re
turn to this country together. Fear
ing his father's death, Earl, who
is in the Army, left Germany on an
emergency leave several days prior
to Marianne's departure.
His three-year re-enlistment af
ter the end of the war, just to
return to Germany and Marianne,
will end this month. Then he and
his bride of four months hope to
move into their new home near
Earl's home at Wildwood.
Marianne and Earl met in May
1945 while Earl was or guard post
at Hersfeld checking persons pass
ing by. Because Marianne could
speak English fluently, they be
came better acquainted and three
years following that meeting, on
June 26, 1948, were married.
The Buedscheids had to flee Co
logne twice during the war when
allied attacks destroyed their
home. It was while they were
living at Schwarzenbach, a little
place about 400 miles from Co
logne, that Earl was able to bring
them food which staved off star
vation. Living in a tiny room were
Marianne, her sister, and their par
ents, Michael and Matilda Bued
scheid. Observing a quaint German cus
tom, Marianne's sister, when the
wedding day neared, made a little
booklet or "wedding paper" which
tells in rhyme, both in German and
County Teachers
Attend Meeting
Practically every teacher in the
county attended the first county
wide teachers meeting in the Beau
fort school auditorium Saturday
morning, H. L. Joslyn, superinten
dent of schools, revealed.
, Organization meetings were held
afterward by the local chapters of
the NCEA and the North Carolina
Teacher's association (colored).
J. E. Miller, associate in the Div
ision of Instructional Service of
the state Boasd of Education, was
the speaker at the teacher's meet
ing. Mr. Miller served in connec
tion with the work of the North
Carolina Education commission.
The speaker talked of democracy
in the three R's and how to vitalize
subject matter. '

met, and how the romance ended
in marriage.
Each rhyme is illustrated in pen
sketch and crayon. Part of one of
the rhymes, reads,
Meeting in Hersfeld, they show
ed readiness
To establish in Wildwood their
happiness
Parents are sad by this separa
tion, But Earl only says, "My repara
tion." Marianne can speak French in
addition to English. Both langu
ages were learned in school. Al
though a Catholic by birth, she at
tended the Wildwood Presbyterian
church and played the first Sunday
she was here, doing very well,
everyone said, in spite of the fact
there were hymns she had never
heard before and a piano on which
she had never played.
She still wears her wedding ring
on the third finger, right hand, in
accordance with the European cus
tom. Asked if she was going to
change it to the left hand as Amer
ican women do, she laughed and
said she didn't know, but from the
look In her eyes I imagine the ring
will stay always where it is right
now.
The abundance of food here
amazes Marianne, as well as the
array of clothes available.
"I didn't bring many clothes
with me," she explained, "I imagin
ed it would be like this here. When
I rode in a taxi in New York,
everyone looked so dressed up I
thought they were all going to a
party!"
Marianne "likes it here very
much" and hopes the day is not
far distant when her family can
come for a visit.

County Symphony
Membership Goal
Placed At
Seven hundred fifty dollars in
memberships to the North Caro
lina Little Symphony is the quota
for Carteret county, Mrs. B. F.
Royal, membership chairman, an
nounced yesterday.
"Sales are progressing very sa
tisfactorily," Mrs. Royal stated,
and added that she was delighted
with the interest being shown in
the return of the Little Symphony
to the county next year.
Memberships are being sold in
Beaufort, Morehead City, Atlantic
and Newport.
The Little Symphony is a group
of professional musicians, taken
from the full orchestra of the
North Carolina symphony. Its pri
mary function is to play to the
smaller towns and communities
where stages or auditoriums are
too limited for the larger group
of seventy musicians. An orches
tra in miniature, with the four
principal choirs of a full symphony
the brasses, woodwinds, stringed
choir, and percussion instruments
its repertoire is wide and varied.
Because of its mobility and size,
the Little Symphony probably
reaches more children in the rural
and isolated districts than any
other orchestra in the country. Its
free concerts for children are at
tended by thousands, year by year
growing more truly conscious of
the inspiration of great music.
The Little Symphony has an en
thusiastic following. During the
194748 tour. It reached forty five
thousand people and played in ap
proximately 33 towns. A special
concert was given in Raleigh when
the Little Symphony joined forces
with the city's choral groups In an
Easter program. It also gave out-of-state
performances in Georgia,
and ten radio concerts.
Under the direction of Benjamin
Swalin, the Little Symphony began
its 1947-48 tour early in February
when North Carolina was having a
stormy bout with the weather.

Charge Of Arson
Facing the criminal charge of
arson in the March term of super
ior court will be both Cecil Guth
rie and George E. Gillikin, of
Morehead City. Each of the men
was put under $1,500 bond by
Mayor G. W. Dill, Jr., in mayor's
court Monday afternoon.
Gillikin and Guthrie are alleged
to have willfully and maliciously
burned the store at 11th and She
pard streets, owned by Gillikin.
The back part of the store was
damaged by fire at 6:20 Thursday
night, Oct. 28. According to testi
mony offered in the Monday hear
ing, Gillikin requested Guthrie,
his clerk, to stay in the store and
watch until a candle burned down
and caught fire to a gas-soaked
blanket.
Then, according to testimony by
an investigating police officer,
Guthrie escaped from the place by
going out the back. From the
store, located on the sound, he
jumped in water about knee-deep
and waded half a block away.
After changing his clothes, he
returned to the scene of the fire
By F. C. Salisbury
From the time of the early set
tlement of Carteret county the
Outer Banks from Cape Lookout
to Boguc Inlet have had many
small settlements.
Diamond City on Shackleford
Banks was probably the largest
and the longest lived of the several
hamlets that sprang up on that
section of the Banks and which
were deserted following the violent
storms of the 1800's, driving the
inhabitants to the mainland or to
more protected sections of Bogue
Banks.
Familiar landmarks on Shackle
ford Banks besides Diamond City
were Bell's Island, Uncle Devine's
Phce and the home group of Joe,
Abe and Owen Lewis. Old timers
who passed their early years in
any of these settlement recount
vivid tales of the storms that vis
ited the Banks, of the whaling off
shore, of the thousands of wild
duck killed each season to be ship
ped to inland markets and the vast
variety of seafood that was there
for the taking.
At the western end of Bogue
Banks, small settlements similar
to those on Shackleford Banks
flourished for several years until
the shifting sands and storms kill
ed the trees and vegetation, driving
the inhabitants eastward along the
Banks from one location to an
sther.
The first known settlement on
the western end of, Bogue Bankf
was Bob's Cove, not far from the
present location of the Bogue In
let Coast Guard station. Driven
from there by the encroaching
sand and storms, the inhabitants
moved eastward to a point that
was given the name of Yellow Hill.
Again a move became necessary,
so another settlement was estab
lished to the east and given the
name of Rice Path. Here the
group, which by this time had de
veloped into quite a good size com
munity, remained for several
years. Once again the elements
wrought vengence upon that sec
tion, compelling the people to
make another trek eastward set

Board Authorizes
Request For Bids
On Sewer Line
Taking their second decisive step
in the elimination of an unsanitary
sewage disposal problem in Beau
fort, the Beaufort town commis
sioners Monday night in regular
session voted to ask for scaled bids
for 30 days for the construction of
a sanitary sewer in the northeast
ern end of town.
Acting on the recommendation
of Engineer Gray Hassell, follow
ing a survey which he made on
the commissioners' order, the
town board authorized a sewage
line to be laid from Mulberry st.
south down Hedrick to Cedar.
The new line would provide for
the sanitary disposal of sewage
which now flows through a storm
sewer to an open ditch just out
side of the town limits between
the Beaufort graded school and
property being developed as Han
cock Park, a housing area.
Mr. Hassell estimated that the
cost would be $1,700. Before re
commending the Mulherry-Hedriek-Cedar
route, he made a survey Of
a proposed route from Mulberry
down Hedrick to Pine, thence to
Live Oak, but discovered this
would not be feasible because ele
vation at Live Oak is higher than
at Mulberry.
The unsanitary drainage situa
tion came to the attention of coun
ty sanitarian, A. D. Fulford, late
in September and was inspected
by a state sanitation engineer
Sept. 29. The town commissioners
complied with his recommenda
tions at their Oct. 4th meeting by
appointing Gray Hassell to conduct
a survey for the construction of a
sanitary trunk line.
The board unanimously accepted
the town of Beaufort audit for the
fiscal year ending June 30, 1948,
prepared bv Frank P. Wall of Wil
liams and Wall. Mr. Wall was pre
sent and explained each item of
the audit.
A permit was granted Price
Johnson to sell beer at his Oyster
Bar. Will Arrington offered to
deed water lots No. 125, 126, and
127, belonging to the I. E. Ramsey
estate, to the town provided no
building be erected on them. This
proposal was taken under advise
ment. A motion was made by Commis
sioner J. O. Barbour, Jr., seconded
by Commissioner D. F. Merrill,
that police officer Maxwell Wade,
who has resigned, be paid the ba
lance of his salary for October.
The motion passed.

Morehead City
Adds Voice To
Plea For Ports
Chamber Manager Appears
Before Budget Commis
sion at Raleigh
Robert G. Lowe, Jr., manager of
the Morehead City chamber of
commerce, went to Raleigh Wed
nesday to add his support to a
plea before the state advisory
budget commission for $7,558,372
for port facilities at Wilmington
and Morehead City.
Col. George W. Gillette, execu
tive director of the North Carolina
Ports Authority, presented the re
quest before the body which passes
on all state budgetary additions.
Various interests also se:it repre
sentatives to add their voices to
the plea for development funds
for the state's ports. Senator-elect
J. M. Broughton made a statement
on behalf of Colonel Gillette's re
quest. Representatives of the Atlantic
and Eastern Carolina and the At
lantic Coast Line railroads pointed
out the advantages of port develop
ment from the freight rates stand
point. Benefits of the coastwise trade
with adequate ports in North Caro
lina were stressed by representa
tives of textile Interests.
Spokesmen for the tobacco in
dustry contributed their voices to
the advantage of tobacco storage
facilities on the coast and the de
sirability of ports for the export
of-domestic tobaeooa-and the im
port of Turkish blends. Tobacco is
now coming from Georgia and
South Carolina into North Carolina
for processing, it was pointed out,
but must be shipped to out of
state ports for export. North Caro
lina ports, it was stressed, could
handle the export of these pro
ducts, in addition to its own, which
constitutes 68 per cent of the na
tional tobacco exports. '
C. C. Brewen, speking for Ma
dix Asphalt Roofing corporation,
Morehead City, said he established
his business here primarily be
cause of expected coastal benefits.
Mr. Brewen revealed that he could
receive certain raw materials by
barge at less than half of the pre
sent railroad freight rate.
There would be an $8,700, a
month net saving on the present
one-shift operation, he said, and
when he begins a contemplated
three-shift operation, his monthly
saving would be more than $25,000.
