ONE PLACE SLOT MACHINES
The Perquimans Weekly wishes to
offer its sincere congratulations to
Roberson's Drug Store on the remov
al of the slot machines.
It is our understanding that the
slot machine business is a paying
business for the owners and agents,
and Mr. Roberson fully realizes that
he is giving up a regular and steady
The slot machine may not const
tute a danger to young people. Evi
dently, Mr. Roberson thinks other
wise and has the courage of his
convictions. Too few of us are will
ing to put ourselves to any trouble or
inconvenience in order to safeguard
the youth we are so fond of critkiz
ing for their shortcomings.
It strikes us that Mr. Roberson's
terse statement that he had the ma
chines removed because he did not
want them in the drug store is much
more to the point than some of tie
ejoquent harangues we hear on the
subject of the delinquinces of modern
DURANT'S NECK ROAD MERITS
, As the matter now stands it ap
pears that if the Board of County
Commissioners endorses the petition
of the committee seeking to secure
the hard surfacing of the Durant's
Neck Road, there is little doubt but
that the project will be approved.
That the endorsement of the Com
missioners will be given this project
is hardly to be doubted.
There is a possibility that by ask
ing for the paving of the Durant's
Neck road the matter of paving the
road leading from New Hope to
State Highway 342 at Woodville will
be abandoned, although this is by no
means a certainity. I
The paving of the road from New
Hope to State Highway 342 is highly
desirable from the standpoint of the
residents of New Hope- and those of
the community who wish a conven
ient outlet to Elizabeth City and oth
er points outside of Perquimans
County. If, however, the success of
one project is to be nased upon the
abandonment of the other, it can
hardly be denied that the matter of
making it possible for those citizens
who are shut in by bad roads to get
out to their own county seat is of
vastly more importance to the coun
ty as a whole.
Nobody can blame the residents of
New Hope for preferring the paving
of the road leading from their own
village out to the highway. This
road would indeed add greatly to the
convenience of this section of the
county. But it would benefit only
Taking into consideration the fact
that there is a hard surfaced road
from New Hope to the county seat,
and from the county seat to all
points, north, south, east and west,
and that the Durant's Neck residents
cannot at times even get out to New
Hope, it would seem more important
t that, the Durant's Neck road be

Hertford, within the past thirty
A good many rattlesnakes have
been reported killed in Perquimans
during the summer and fall. Some
have had many rattles, some few.
However, no snake has been reported
to me before as having anything like
the number of twenty-three rattles.
Neither have I heard of as many as
fonr snakes being Mued on one farm,
Of the four rattlesnakes killed, one
of them was a young snake, accord
ing to Mr. Stokes, and had no rat
tles. One had nine and another
seven. The largest one had twenty
three rattles. And hat's plenty.
1 SPORTS TALK
Bill Jessup, who was graduated
from Perquimans High in '34, and
who entered Duke ; University this
year, has started off in a lug "way-
Last Friday when the Duke fresh
men football team met in its first
combat of the season, Bill's name
was in the starting line-up, holding
down a guard position. The fresh
men team came out at the big end
of the score.
Bill, as we all remember, was a
very good lineman, and now he is
living up to his past performance.
Good work, Bill keep it up!
The local P. C. H. S. grid team is
beginning to work into shape. Al
though the team is not as heavy as
last year's team, and is in compari
son a very light team, especially the
'backs, this does not affect the spirit
of the team. All the boys are sure
of taking a large number of the
games that they have scheduled, al
though the schedule is not yet com
plete. The coach is putting the team
through its paces now and the boys
are showing a wonderful fighting

players was heard to say that the
lightness of the team didn't matter,

Oakey Tells Rotarians
About Shooting Match
There were two distinctive fea
tures of the Rotary Club program on
Walter H. Oakey, Jr., who won
first prize in the Hercules trophy
match during the national rifle and
pistol matches conducted by the War
Department at Camp Perry, Ohio, in
September, gave an interesting re
port of the activities at the camp and
an outline of the various shooting
matches, and exhibited the trophy, a
large bronze statue of Hercules, on
the base of which Mr. Oakey's name
is engraved as the winner for 1935.
A gold medal was also given Mr.
Oakey as a permanent award.
As a special feature a baby show
er was given to Master Richard Nor
fleet Hines, Jr., the youngest baby
in the Rotary TJlub.
