FRIDAY. JUNE IS, 1941
At Elizc'jelh City
Apparently Elizabeth City ia hav
ing a harder time than it has re
cently expected in locating the Navy
blimp base outside of the, Jfasquo
tank metropolis. Reports from Wash
insrton of late have all blimp bas
legislation bottled up in the House
Rules Committee, and Congressman
Herbert C. Bonner has been unable to
open the committee's doors for the
exit of the measure, although the bill
has been approved by President
At the same time the feeling k
pretty general that the present situ
ation is but a temporary tie-up of
the whole situation and that the
original plan for four bases', includ
ing Elizabeth City, will go through,
So or not, there will undoubtedly be
great further delay before this con
elusion is reached.
Congressmen on the rules group
frankly state they are not con
vinced of the wisdom of the Navy
going into the use of lighter-than
air craft patrol blimps in this in
stance to a greater extent than at
present. They take this view not
withstanding the fact that Congress
already has authorized airships for
coastal patrol and has actually ap
propriated funds for four of them.
Three Cases Heard
Business in Recorder's Court con
tinued at a slack pace here Tuesday,
only thre ecases being heard by

sault with a deadly weapon.

ment of a fine of $50 and costs and
good behavior for two years. An
appeal of the verdict was noted and

ing moving old building and grading
and landscaping grounds.
