THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
GOD'S WONDERFUL LOVE: For
God so loved the world, that he gave
his only begotten Son, that whoso
ever believeth in him should not
perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16.
IT IS UP TO TOWN OFFICERS
Some drastic steps should be taken,
and taken at once, by the officials of
the Town of Hertford to check the
excessive speeding of automobile
drivers on the streets of Hertford.
Speeding is the order of the day
in the Town of Hertford. The new
thirty-foot highway through the town
has been opened for the convenience
of the traveling public. Speed-mad
drivers seem to have taken the .m
provement as an invitation to faster
driving. Coming into Hertford over
the Perquimans River bridge, driv
ers of cars in many instances sweep
around the curve in Church street at
a terrific rate of speed. In spite of
the adequate width of the street,
these speeders menace the safety of
the residents of the west side of the
street in driving from their premises.
Nobocfy familiar with this section
of the town will deny the truth of
these statements. The rate of speed
at which cars are often driven in this
section of the town io a menace to
persons crossing the street, particu
larly so to children.
It has been suggested that private
citizens witnessing the violat' in,, of
the law should report the matter to
the authorities and swear out war
rants themselves. The private citi
zen knows that it is the business of
the police officers to report these
violations.
Why shouldn't the police of the
Town of Hertford include this sec
tion of the town in their beat and
make investigation of this situation?
It would be a great deal easier to
remedy this situation now, before it
becomes established in the minds of
these speeders that the wide street
is a Bpeedway. The speeders are not
going to slow down unless they are
made to d Ko. On the contrary,
they will -mue to increase their
speed rate
Now is tne time for the officers to
stop this excessive speeding!
JUDGE OAKEY TAKES DECIDED
STAND
Judge Walter H. Oakey, Jr., has
served notice that he expects to pro
tect, in so far as his official position
permits, the Perquimans County pub
lic from the drunken driver.
In no uncertain terms Judge Oakey
stated in open court on Tuesday that
no one convicted in his court of
driving an automobile while under
the influence of intoxicants will be
let off with a fine. No matter who
it is so convicted, a jail sentence will
be invoked.
This is well. If all the judges in
the State of North Carolina had the
courage to make Ifcis decision
and stand by it, drunken drivers
Would not be so numerous and there
would be a decrease in the slaugh
ter of human beings on our high
ways. When a man knows the penalty foi
driving an automobile while drunk
is a term in jail and that he cannot
pay his way out with a fine, he is
apt to abstain from taking a :lrnk
and the wheel of a car at the same
time.
Judge Oakey's stand is a challenge
to every judge in the State of North
Carolina.
LET'S PLANT CREPE MYRTLE
AND DOGWOOD
The broad highway through the
Town of Hertford is completed. The
construction "force did a good job.
- But it remains for the citizens of the
Town-of Hertford to take steps which
will add immeasurably to the attrac
tiveness of the town. '
To" plant' crepe myrtle and dogwood
trees alternately in the space between
' sidewalk and street would be to make
of this wide thoroughfare a thing of
beauty, which, we are told, is a "joy
forever." , .

experience of going down to the
river as a child to watch the circus
come to town. There .was - no rail
road through thle section then, in
I860, and indeed not until more than
a decade. . later, v The circus came
through the country mad. The old
lady related that when the keepers
attempted: to drive the elephants on
the ferry , they refused to go on. Try
as they might, the keepers could not
induce the big animals to step upon
the f rail ferry. To the great delight
of the children, the . elephants were
finally .allowed to swim the river,
landing on the Hertford side close
enough for the children to witness
the exciting incident iv
The road through the causeway
and the float bridge must have been
a great convenience. To be sure, the
tide' came in sometimes and covered
the road. When a resident of Dur
anta Neck or of Nicanor or Belvidere
droe into town in the morning oh a
perfectly good road, he wasn't at all
certain that when he started home in
the afternoon the road would not be
inundated. When that happened,
however, the horse just splashed its
ay through without any trouble,
and the pedestrians walked on the
very convenient elevated footway be
side the road.
The causeway road has always
been a problem. It is probably for
ever solved. Certainly, it appears to
have a solid foundation now, and the
broad hard surfaced highway is a
great improvement over the rough
and muddy road which years ago
met the old float bridge.
The modern steel and concrete
bridge built six years ago across the
river is an appropriate link between
the beautiful causeway road and the
streets of Hertford.
