There can be no dilly-dallying in this project. The freight
car must join others from adjoining counties in this area. It
must leave here Monday, Dec. 13, and we should hang our heads
in shame if that car isn't jammed to overflowing by Sunday, Dec.

When a Solution Isn't a Solution
vt l One wry to stop all automobile accidents is to stop all cars.
) 'v"'' Foolish as this may be, that seems to be the aim'at the 4th
' H'n ''iand Arendfll street intersection in Morehead City. This inter
j: J OTnvection is just west of the Jefferson hotel where highway 70 cross-
!!" -cs the railroad and Arendell street. , , ,
Prior to this week there were, just twotp signs, one stop-
ping traffic going east on Arendell and the other stopping traf
4!it.;Jfic going south on route 70, also known as 4th street,
tllyl Now there are three, another has been placed to stop traffic
going north on 4th streef and as a result motorists seldom stop at
any of them. Mcst of the daily drivers in that vicinity have lcarn-
ed that if everybody stops, each sits and waits for the other fel-
low to go, suddenly all three start at once, then they all slam on
(imithcir brakes. If they wouldn't the result would be better than
e'' ''anything ever seen in an Abbott and Costello movie.
Our suggestion would be to leave the newest stop sign for
jHii traffic going north on 4th street where it is, leave the other slop
Wti!ping traffic going south on 4th where it is, remove the stop sign
tjVtvor traffic going east on Arendell and replace it with a "Caution,
'Hit .'.Dangerous Intersection" sign and also place a "Caution, Danger-
ous Intersection" sign for traffic going west on Arendell street.
Maybe a traffic engineer figured out the present three-stop
WVisystem, but it's the queerest "solution" we have ever come across.
MV The saW(j cow the Atlantic and East Carolina railroad,
jjv'nadded a bit of interest to this intersection last Friday night too.
.Wr nA freight train was parked right across 4th street (also highway
70). The caboose was off the crossing, just east of 4th street,
JMftsan unloaded flatcar, black as night, blocked north and south traf
fic, and then some boxcars were strung out down toward 5th
Maybe the nilroad dees own the right of way down the mid
''die of the main street of town ... but it's going to make a juicy
page 1 story when some motorist plows into the side of a black,
solid, box car.

AMBASSADOR He will pro
bably deny having any knowledge
of it whatever, but the word was
out last week that Capus Waynick,
who directed Kerr Scott's success
ful campaign for Governor, might
become ambassador to "some
South American country."
It is known that Waynick and
President Harry S. Truman are
fast friends, and it is understood
that Waynick would like very
much to be appointed emissary to
a foreign nation. Since last spring
he has steadfastly maintained that
he would not accept any position
in the Scott administration.
SPECIAL TRAINS With both
Wake Forest and the University
of North Carolina playing in bowl
games on January 1, rumors spread
like wildfire in Raleigh on Sat
urday night that special trains
would run from Raleigh to Bir
mingham (Dixie Bowl) and New
Orleans (Sugar Bowl) on Friday,
December 30. Since New Year's
Day comes on Saturday, it seems
likely that literally thousands of
Tar Heels will spend the last few
hours of this year and the first
day of the next down in the Deep
This also goes for Phil Ellis, spe

of course, there is Lee Kirby of

This man would really be the As
sistant Governor. Although Gov.
R. Gregg Cherry has reportedly
said one isn't needed (and he
should certainly be in a position
to know), there is a move under
foot to create this new job. Scott
thinks the place -should pay about
$9,000 per year.
The Advisory Budget Commis
sion failed to recommend funds for
the new position. This body would
in all likelihood have followed
Scott's suggestion if he had been

SCOTT ABSENCE For the
first time since North Carolina set
up its budget system (1927), an
incoming Governor has failed to
attend the final deliberations of
the Advisory Budget Commission.
So, Kerr Scott has broken yet an
other record. He said he would
be there, but he wasn't. Since the
tentative fiscal policies of the first
two years of a new Governor's ad
ministration are set by this Com
mission, Mr. Scott was severely
criticized by press and people last
week. He probably had it coming

a slave, night and day. He wanted
a rest. He bad that coming to him,
