'County Board Amends Beer Ruling
County Commissioners
Hear Both Sides
Two hundred fifty persons
attended the beer hearing in
the courthouse, Beaufort,
yesterday morning. The pur
pose for which the special
county board meeting was
originally called was lost in
the oratory on why or why
not beer should be sold in the
county on Sunday.
The meeting was called to hear
if there were any protests or. tor
rowing $12,000 for a health center.
There were none. So in the board
meeting following the hearing the
commissioners approved further
legal details in connection with the
health center.
The beer hearing, which was an
outgrowth of the county's banning
boer sales in the county on Sunday,
took place in the courtroom to ac
commodate the large crowd, the
majority of whom were members
of church congregations.
The meeting was opened by
Moses Howard, chairman of the
board of county commissioners,
who told the group that after both
sides were heard, the board would
"take the matter under advise
ment."
Mr. Howard invited Wiley Tay
lor. solicitor of County Recorder's
Court, to be the first speaker. Mr.
Taylor, who introduced the resolu
tion at the April 9 meeting, de
clined, saying that he was there
only to sec that "the county board
stands pat." He said people on his
side already had w hat they wanted.
Harvey Hamilton. Morehead City
attorney, was invited to speak as
the representative for the beer re
tailers in the county. He presented,
at the conclusion of his remarks!
an alternative proposal from the
beer dealers ? that they would not
sell beer until 12:30 p.m. Sunday
and Atlantic Beach beer dealers
would also comply with that regu
lation. (Atlantic Beach is not af
fected by the Sunday beer ban).
After hearing Mr. Hamilton's
talk, Mr. Taylor decided that he
had something to say after ill and
said that he didn't believe the al
ternative proposal would be legal.
Mr. Hamilton opened his re
marks with the statement that he
asked beer retailers not to show up
in large numbers because he felt
the issue should be decided by
common sense and not mass dem
onstration.
Sets Forth Arguments
He said he was not condemning
the April 9 ruling and that had he
been on the board he probably
would have "voted the same way."
He based his argument on the fol
lowing points:
1. The ruling is unfair. It allows
Atlantic Beach but no other place
to sell beer on Sunday.
2. It penalizes all beer places be
cause of the way in which a few
are run. He said that places such
as Dom-EI's and Courie's at Monev
Island, struggle all winter in hope
that they can make some money
during the summer, and now they
are being closed down on their best
day of the week.
3. The state board of alcoholic
beverage control has assured a
stepped-up law enforcement pro
gram.
4. The chief law enforcement of
ficer of the county, the sheriff, be
lieves the ruling is unfair because
it docs not apply uniformly to all
beer retailers.
5 Sunday ts a big tourist day and
if the beer ban stands, thousands
of dollars will be lost to the county.
6. Some of the ministers who are
members of the organization which
endorsed the Sunday beer ban say
now, Mr. Hamilton remarked, that
they would not have been in favor

North River Bridge Set As
County's No. J Road Project
County commissioners placed the J
proposed North River Bridge No. I
1 on the list of bridge projects in j
the county when they met yester- j
day afternoon with State Highway
officials at the courthouse.
The Beaufort bridge, across Gal- '
lant's Creek, was listed No. 2 and ,
the Morehead City Bridge, across
Newport River, No. 3.
Cost of the North River bridge i
is estimated by highway officials
at $750,000. Cost of the Beaufort
bridge, for which bids will be
asked in July, was estimated at I
$825,000, and cost of the More- j
head bridge was estimated at $14 j
million.
Highway officials said a survey
is being made now relative to re
location of the Morehead bridge. I
Maynard Hicks, highway com- j
missioner, said a survey relative
to fixing a road across the Open
Grounds to Sea Level showed the
terraine to be too swampy to at
tempt ii. ,
Commissioners gave their opin
ion on road needs. Commissioner ,
Walter Ycomans said that in his
opinion the Harkcrs Island bridge
is adequate at the present time.
Commissioner Harrell Taylor!
said roads in the Sea Level sec
tion were all right but there was
a bad drainage problem.
Mr. Hicks pointed out that there
is not much money available now
for building secondary roads. Pri
mary roads arc being given atten
tion because they have had no
work on them for eight years and
at present there is no bond money
as there was during the Scott ad
ministration, he explained.
He said that the state's only j
hope for secondary roads is that
an $11 billion federal road bill
passes If it does, North Carolina
will probably get $300 million on
the basis of population.
C. G. Holland, former sheriff
and now state fisheries commis
sioner, proposed that the board
write Ed Schcidt, director of the
State Highway Patrol, and request
that a state highway patrolman be
stationed down cast and live in
that area.
He suggested that the letter ask !
for a reply and if no action is
taken, the county board should re
member that "Schiedt has a boss
over him."
The board also approved a pe
tition to imprQvc Cedar Lane, a
road 1650 feet long in the Cedar
Point section.
Highway officials present, in ad
dition to Mr. Hicks, were R. j
Markham, division engineer, C. Y. !
Griffin, district engineer, and Mrs.
Exum, clerk.
Judge Comments
On Senate Race
Judge Luther Hamilton, More
head City, unopposed candidate for
the slate senate, commented Fri- ,
day that he was pleased that he I
would have no opposition in the
forthcoming primary. He said that
otherwise he would have had to J
spend much time campaigning in
the six counties that make up the
seventh senatorial distriat.
Also running for the two state
senate seats is John Dawson, Kin- j
ston.
The judge also said that even
though he is sacrificing personal
income in serving as senator, he j
will do his best for the people he
will represent.
Half a Million Isn't Enough
By RUTH PEELING
If you think half ? million dol
lars is a lot of money for build
ing schools, hold y'er hats, that is
just a third at what Carteret
needs!
The $500,000 to >700.000 figure
mentioned in Friday's paper would
build just one high school. And
Carteret's school needs are much
more than that.
If folks want better schools,
they can request a referendum and
vote yes on borrowing the money.
Although a million and a half dol
lars is a tremendous amount,
school officials hope that the Local
Government Commission, which
has to approve all such borrowing,
would give its approval, since Car
teret so badly needs additional
facilities.
A new high school for Morehead
City ought to be going up right
now, but there is no money. That
high school alone, with the neces
sary classrooms, vocational depart
mcnts and gymnasium, would cost
when completed, three-quarters of
a million dollars.
If a half million were available
now, part of the plant could be
constructed, with additions later
as the money becomes available.
According to ihe master plan
for school improvement in this
county, approveid by the state three
years ago. the next school to be
built will be at Harkers Island,
for grades 1 through I.
That will cost, without equip
ment, between $120,000 and $150,
000 well over half the $170,000
Carteret has been allotted from
the second $25 million of the $50
million set up by the state. (And
that $170,000 hasn't been made
available by the state as yet).
From the firat $25 million, Car
teret received $180,008 71 and that
money was used to build Beau
fort's new primary school and ad
ditional classrooms at Queen Street
School.
' What is a million and a half
dollars needed for? In addition to
I the Markers Island School, Smyrna
needs a shop and a gymnasium.
I Queen Street School needs a gym.
Camp Glenn needs an auditorium.
That's close to $300,000 right there.
Beaufort very soon will need a
new high school. With that and
the proposed Morehead City
School, that's a million. A hundred
and thirty thousand dollars could
well be spent on additional class
rooms at Newport, and although
Atlantic School ia getting along
all right, extra rooms will be need
ed there soon
Now being built at W. S. King
School, Morehead City, and Queen
Street School, Beaufort, arc cafe
j terias. Some of the money to pay
I for those is going to have to come
out of next year's budget.
That's the aituation . . . it's not
an encouraging one. But if tax
payers an willing to borrow the
fundr, new schools can be built.
Morehead Town Board Sets
May 3 for Re-Zoning Hearing
Emeritus Club
Suggests Town

W. S. Kidd of the Emeritus j
Civic Club appeared before the
Morehead City Town Board Thurs- i

gested that the town acquire the
east end of the fisheries property J

agreed that the request should be
placed before the CAD board when
it meets here July 2 and 3.
Officer Appears
Lt. Mcrrit Bridgman, command
ing officer of the National Guard
Unit, attended the meeting and
said that the unit finances arc in
bad shape and requested the board
to advance the un?! $50 to pay the
telephone and water bill for the
next two months.
Lieulci)ai)l Bridgman said thia
other towns regularly contribute
to support of their National Guard
units. The officer reported on the
amount of income the unit brings
to the city, a total of $27,275 12
in payroll and construction work
last year. lie added that radio
equipment recently acquired con
nects this unit with other bat
teries throughout the state.
The town attorney, George Mc
Neill, questioned the legality of
advancing funds to the unit, but
the board agreed to take the re
quest under consideration.
Lieutenant Bridgman also asked
the town fathers to cooperate with
the unit in urging businessmen to
allow Guardsmen time off to at
tend summer training camp.
Request Denied
A proposal to widen 11th Street,
in the block by the Colonial Store,
was considered. The Colonial Store

Reach town board would put the
same ruling into effect.
On the first ballot three commis
sioners voted against revising the
ruling- The motion to revise was
placed by Commissioner Harrell
Taylor and seconded by Commis
sioner Odell Merrill.
After lengthy discussion and de
hate as to whether the same mo
tion could be put on the floor
again, it was decided that it could.
Commissioner Taylor moved and
Commissioner Merrill seconded and
l he second vote was 3 to 2 in favor
of amending.
During the discussion prior to
the second ballot Sheriff Hugh Sal
ter said he believed that Atlantic
Beach would ro .along with the
12:30 opening hour for sale of beer

were attributed to beer drinking.

he was in favor of prohibition if it
could be enforced, but he said he
was opposed to discrimination in
beer selling.

p.m. when Marine Corps Pfc. Chris 1
Brock took a swan dive off the

The Marine, accompanied by a
buddy claimed after he was pulled

He vaulted off the bridge very
gracefully into the murky, swirl

youth near one of the fenders at
the side of the draw, and he
climbed up the side of the bridge
to aafcty, assisted by Patrolman
Lewis.
