If the football team is a lone wolf,
representing nothing more than a
football team, then Hertford need
feel no. shame for the shabby lot of
uniforms worn by the local boys
against Columbia Friday.
On the other hand if the Hertford
boys are accepted by the towns they
visit as delegates ' from this town
then Hertford ie allowing a miserably
attired delegation to reflect the back

The battle-scarred uniforms, if they
may be called uniforms, are 'seeing
their sixth year of wear and tear and
the ragged remnants are not ones to
inspire a warrior to combat On the
contrary, the decrepit - attire gives
the opposition a handicap even be
fore the game begins.
In short, The Perquimans Weekly
thinks that when the local boys win
a game, Hertford cannot, without
misgivings, claim a victory. The cre
dit belongs entirely to the boys who
played and since they are given no
support in any degree, either morally
or financially, no glory can, be reflect

THE! TOWN CRIERS
The membership of the newly
formed organization, . The .Town
Criers, has increased since - the last
meeting of the executive committee
from, 53 to about 80, and before the
first meeting of the organization
which is to be held , on Friday night
will in all probability number a
It fa going to be interesting to fol
low the proceedings of The Town
Criers. The membership includes
some potential : Headers and many
who have ideas as to the manner m
which f our town can be improved.
Moreover,' this will be the first op
portunity most of these men have had
of putting across the ideas they
have' for the betterment of the com
rounity. The heartening thing is that
there are so many of the young men
f the, town in the group.
The editor of The Perquimans
Weekly is proud of the position" of
secretary to the Town Criers. Itis
going to be a pleasure to record the
efforts of a band of men, a hundred
strong, who are organized for the
sole purpose of making the home
town a better, place in which to live,
A PICTURE ALL SHOULD SEE
The Perquimans Weekly does not
attempt to review or preview motion
pictures, but if it were called upon
to pick the most powerful and com
pelling release of the year, that pic
ture would be "The Devil Is Driving,"
shown at the State Theatre in Hert
ford last week.
Those lights flashing on the map in
the office of the district attorney
every few seconds and signifying a
major auto smashup with every flash,
brought to us much clearer than
thousands of words and figures a con
. ception of the staggering death toll
on the highways of America every
. day, , the thousands of people, march-
. mg eacn one. - representing a me
" lost through traffic mishaps last
year, the grief -stricken husband and
'father whose wife was killed and
whose daughter was rendered an 'in
valid for life the result of a crash
''with a drunken driver.
Discounting, the picture's plot in
its entirety, "The Devil Is Driving"
'might be Said to ' be a campaign
. against, -traffic, deaths in itself. It
would be well' 'if, law .enforcement
; agencies made ' use of this . fihn in
' their efforts to control a situation
' which becomes more grave each day.
" To require each convicted law vio-
.; Jator .and each applicant for a driv
er's permit to see this picture, might
'be effective 'to some extent, in redue
, ing the hazards of the highway. f -
