I was among a handful of news
men, Civilians and Marine officers
who greeted President Harry S
Truman at the Cherry Point Ma
rine air base when his private
plane, the Independence, landed
there Sunday morning at 10:30
The president stopped en route
from Washington to Key West,
Flu., to renpy a visit from the Rev.
Thomas W. Fryer, pastor of the
First baptist church of New Bern
by worshipping at his church.
When Mr. Truman stepped
through the doorway of the Inde
pendencc after it taxied to a stop,
ne was the most composed and
self-possessed man on the air field
As flash bulbs popped, newsreel
cameramen jockeyed for position,
Marine generals fidgeted with
their white gloves and numerous
lesser officers and enlisted men
scampered about. The President
strode onto the ramp from the
doorway of the Independence and
Later, everyone who wanted to
was able to shake the hand of the
President, including Mayor and
Mrs. L. W. Hassell of Beaufort.
Dressed in a tan. double breast
ed suit and standing hatless in the
early morning sun, Mr. Truman
was handsome with his broad
chest, erect bearing and silvering
hair. His smile, though genial,
was not so extravagant as those he
flashed for the voters before elec
tion day, and his manner and dress
Descending the ramp with mea
sured steps, he allowed camera
men the courtesy of plenty of time
before grasping the extended
hands of Brig. Gen. Ivan W. Mil
ler, commanding officer of the
Marine air base, and other high
ranking Officers on hand to, greet
After the initial handshake, the
president donned his light tan fe
dora and allowed his Marine Hosts
to continue the ' introductions as
the party moved leisurely toward
a waiting limousine.
A line of Marine officers and
men, standing at attention, were
awaiting a handshake from the
commander-in-chief, so Mr. Tru
man was next taken to them.
I moved along the line behind
the Marines, aiming my camera
over their shoulders, as the Presi
dent moved along, looking into the
face of each man, listening to his
name called by an escorting offi
cer, shaking each hand and speak
ing a friendly greeting.
He was affable and seemingly as
interested to meet them as they
were to know him. As he spoke,
his voice was resonant and deep,
the. mark of a calm, self-assured
man and I felt that the description
of "a plain man" aptly fitted him.
Finishing at the last man, the
President returned down the line
of tautly erect figures, all in their
Marine dress blues and white
gloves, and was interrupted just
before stepping into the limousine
by several who had not yet shaken
Mayor L. W. Hassell was among
these. Mrs. Hassell, the only wom
an present, failed to get in on the
quick handshake, so she darted to
the doorway of the car and tapped
Mr. Truman on the shpuldcr. He
quickly turned, grasped her hand

in the sanitary program undertak

lowing members of the town
board were appointed to serve as
a sanitation committee: David It.
McCain, Henry Edwards, and C.

Summary of the I port, submit
ted by Mr. Fulford, follows: Num
ber of insanitary outside toilets,
'Jo', complete new outside toilets,
31; 19 places without toilet facili
ties. 9 insanitary septic tanks, 11

When the commissioners report
ed that there was no possibility of

within the next five years, it was
suggested that septic tanks be put
It was pointed out however, that
families who have septic tanks are
less inclined to look favorably on
installation of sanitary sewers.
Cost of installing a septic tank
was reported to be between $150
Violators of the sanitary code

Now that enough time has
elapsed for an analysis of the fi
nal voting tabulations for 1948 in
Carteret county, how does the turn
out of voters compare with elec
tions of recent years?
In the presidential race the 1948
figure for ballots cast ii Carteret
is 30 more than in '44 and 586
less than in '40. Citizens of the
county cast a combined vote of
5099 for presidential candidates in
1948, against 5069 in 1944 when
Dewey ran against Roosevelt and
5685 in 1940 in the Roosevelt-Wil-kie
Ike Eisenhower received one
write-in vote in Morehead City.
Comparison of the voting record
for the governorship reveals a to
tal for all candidates of 5069 in
1948 versus a total of 4962 in 1944
Did Truman poll more or less
votes in his 1948 upset or in 1944
when he ran with Roosevelt for
vice-president? The records show
that he received AO more votes
under the Roosevelt banner than
under his own in '48, which means
that his strength was relatively
stable in Carteret county. The Tru
man count in 1944 was 3489. This
Nov. 2 he recorded 3449.
Dewey lost 79 supporters in the
county since he opposed Roosevelt
in the 1944 elections. 1580 was his
total then, Ws total Nov. 2, 1501.
The combined total of 5099 in
the presidential race was the
largest number of votes cast in
any race in he county this year.
Precincts which went Republi
can in the presidential and U. S.
senator races were Marshallberg,
Williston, Davis and Stacy. The
record did not hold true for all
Final tabulations show that Kerr
Scott led the field in number of
votes received h Carteret county,
although A. H. James received the
most votes in the county elections.
Scott polled 3946 votes Nov. 2.
James' final count was 3861. Bun
dy, unopposed for solicitor of su
perior court, received 3783. Gra
ham Barden, Democrat candidate
for U. S. representative, stood
fourth with 3780.
Closest race was the Morehead
City township contest for constable
in which Krouse netted 710 votes
to nose out Fulcher with 708 votes.
Carteret countians were for two
of the four proposed amendments.

that it will sponsor a contest to
promote interest in the Christmas
senl campaign among school child
ren of the county. Prizes will be
awarded to the class that creates
the most attractive merchants' win
dow displays throughout the
A cash prize of $10 will be
awarded for first place, $5 for sec

award will be $2.50. Judges for
the contest will be selected from
Morehead City, Beaufort, Newport
and Atlantic. Only the schools in
these communities wil enter the
Wiley Taylor, Jr., seal sale chair
man for the county, said that the
contest is limited to these schools
because smaller communities do
not have a sufficiently large busi
ness district to offer the space re
quired for complete participation
by all the classes.
Mr. Taylor expressed the hope
that every merchant in Carteret
county will cooperate with the
children in this contest. In return
for their cooperation the mer
chants will be assured an attrac
tive window display which will be
appropriate for the Christmas sea
son and will be making an im
portant contribution to the success
of the Christmas seal campaign,
Mr. Taylor remarked.
Funds raised by the Carteret
county Tuberculosis association
this year will be used to procure
a mobile X-ray unit in order that
the unknown cases of tuberculosis
in the county can be found and
properly treated. Through the use
of mass X-rays it is believed that
tuberculosis can be almost com
pletely wiped out in the county.
