BIBLE THOUGHT FOR WEEK
FIDELITY IS THE TEST: Then
said Jesus to those Jews which be
lieved on him, If ye continue in my
word, then are ye my disciples in
deed. John 8:31.
HERE COMES THE BAND
The best news we have heard in
ares comes with the tidings that the
high school will have a band this
year ... a real band with uniform
and everything.
For a long while, we hesitated to
mention the possibility, taking into
account the expense that must neces
earily be involved in the undertaking
of such a project. But at the same
time we became green with envy as
we watched Elizabeth City and Eden
ton bands put on colorful displays at
football games and on other occa
sions. Now, we have it from the organi
zer himself, that the first rehearsal
will be held today. The band starts
practice with a good number of
members but more can be used, and
The Weekly urges students to take
up their instruments and put all
their talents into developing a top
flight band.
We have only one suggestion to
make. Here it is: most bands use
the same theme in uniforms, coat
and trousers with caps and brass
buttons and Sam Browne belts. Why
not make this band different in cos
tume? Capitalize on the Indian idea
the bandsters in full In
dian raiment with dozens of glass
beads, moccasins, and feather head
dross. Our nlan would call for a
v.m.ffo Indian Drincess as drum.
major.
" The Weekly believes this arrange
ment would be unusual and very ef
fective. ABOUT "HIRED HELP
A colored girl, hired domestic ser
vant, was tried and convicted in Re
corder's Court this week on sundry
charges, including drunk and disor
derly. In his judgment, which includ
ed a jail sentence, the judge recom
mended that the girl, "be given a
medical examination during her term
in the jail."
The judge included that phrase in
his judgment because he was reliably
informed that she while preparing
food for others to eat is probably
infected with a dread venereal dis
ease . . . and has never undergone a
physical test or examination.
The laws of North Carolina pro
vide that all domestic employees,
cooks, servants, etc., be given a clean
bill of health by a competent physi
cian before entering into such em
ployment. Perquimans County's
judge and other officials are all for
enforcing that law but so long a3
employers do not require certificates
of health from their "hired help," the
officers' hands are tied.
Those who hire servants to look
after their children and prepare food,
The Perquimans Weekly thinks, will
do well to demand certificates of
health from prospective employees
before turning the safe-keeping (?)
of their families over to hired peo
ple. If all employers adopted such a
procedure, those who hire out would i
Boon find themselves unable to secure
employment without a certificate of
Health, and a grave danger would be
overcome.
