Service Beyond the Call of Doty
. Every Christmas there are several mail carriers or postal
clerks (in the older age bracket) who drop dead during the
Christmas season because of overwork.
There are no citations or medals handed out to these men
posthumously for service beyond the line of duty, their death is
merely attributed to a "bad heart" or "overwork."
In their daily routine, working for Uncle Sam, they were car
rying out the glamorized slogan of pony express and stage coach
days, "The mail must go through."
Regardless of the number of extra clerks the postoffices add
during the December rush, the load always falls on the regulars
who know the ropes and have to correct the mistakes the novices
make or else in desperation do the work themselves.
"Do your Christmas mailing early" arc words that mean to
m.-ny people the same thing that mistletoe and holly and ever
green means. They always come with the Christmas season and
Christmas is less than two weeks away. The holiday season
for postoffice personnel can be a merry one, too, but it depends
upon all of us.

Dear Rulh ...
Carteret cminlians will have the opportunity tomorrow night
to see a better th:in amateur play.
"Dear Ruth," a comedy that had Broadway holding its sides
for months, and later had movie audiences all over the nation
recking with laughter, will be presented at 8 o'clock tomorrow
night in the Morehead City school auditorium by the New Bern
Under the sponsorship of the local little theater group, this
phy comes to us, an indication of the numerous ways in which
our own group of dramatists can improve the cultural side of
life and offer (Vs a greater variety of entertainment.
Those who have seen 4 Dear Ruth," as presented by the New
Bern group, have nothing for it but highest praise. The audience
in the school auditorium at 8 o'clock tomorrow night can be assur
ed of an evening of splendid entertainment.
lost Over 100.000 Fish Today . . ."
Remember the well-known fisherman's story, the one that
always tells of the "big one" that got away?
So it seems with the pogics. We daily hear weeping and
wailing tnd gnashing of teeth over the ones that got away. To
really find out whether any fish are being caught one has to use
his eyes boats with the sideboards up, factories with the smoke
pouring out In while clouds and one's nose.
Thoughts for an open mind,..
To most men, some kind or progressive career is Important.
To be glad of- life because It gives you the chance to love and to
work and play and to look up at the stars. To be satisfied
with your possessions, but not contented with yourself until
you have made the best of them. To despise nothing in the
world except falsehood and meanness, and to fear nothing
except cowardice. To be governed by your admiration rather
than by your disgust: to covet nothing that is your neigh
bor's except his kindness of heart and gentleness of man
ners. To think seldom of your enemies, often of your friends.

The hotel was burned before the
Union forces of the War of '61 in
