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.

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.

"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.

Both Guthrie, Gillihin Face 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 Bee SALTER PATH Page I By GAINER BRYAN, Jr. Votes cast by Carteret countians on Nov. 2 bettered the 1944 vot ing record. by 200, approximate returns indicated yesterday.

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.

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.
