FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1951
Halloween, 1951 .
The approach of Halloween reminds
us that there are practical jokers
wno aeiignt, wnenever raey can, to
scare the wits out of -other people.
This may be all right with some in
dividuals but there are persons, es
pecially among the young, whose
health can he badly damaged by prac
tical jokers and their thoughtless
pranks. '
'Parents who think they know their
children pretty well realize that the
urge to destruction ranks right along
side hunger as a youthful motivation,
and they, therefore, aren't too much
surprised at anything that may hap
pen around the end of October.
The witches, ghosts, goblins and
other malevolent spirits, they know,
can often turn into destructive ele
ments unless they are wisely counsel
ed and closely guided. : ; -
What can Perquimans County adults
do to prevent the useless destruc
tion and unhappy consequences which
sometimes follows- a night of merry
making T Well, there are the old
time-honored tricks of giving par
ties, arranging parades and moving
everything movable from the outside
into the garage or even the living
room. Protection may also be bought
bv 'Drovidinsr larsre Quantities of
"treats," to take the place of the
threatened 'Hricks."
For the more serious problems of
Wanton destruction, however, such as
window-breaking, furniture burning,
false alarms, and such, the . police
authorities will have to takeover
With a little bit of forethought on
the part of the adults of Perquimans
County, there can be heaps of fun for
young and old and less remorse on
the morning after ' for unthinking
"pranks" committed the night be
fore, j Jx'
Tax Saving, for
Home-Sellers
The new tax bill will soon become
law and add something like five and
three-quarters billion dollars to the
potential income of the treasury dur
ing the next year. This is much less
than the sum requested by the Presi
dent and, unless spending for re
armament can be curtailed, will not be
sufficient to avoid a deficit. '- S
Fragmentary reports of the pro
visions of the measure do not enable
us to pass on the merits of the levies
about to be enacted. ;,; Increases are
provided for income taxes of indi
viduals and corporations, the former
running about ten per cent, effective
November I and the latter five per
cent effective last April 1st.
One provision which will cost the
treasury an estimated $112,000,000, is
fully justified because it is designat
ed to protect " those who -sell their
homes andreinvest the "profit" in an
other home within a year. Thus, one
who sells his home, .at a profit, will
not have to pay a capital gains tax if
he constructs a replacement residence
and can claim the exemption if he
occupies the new home within eigh
teen months. This is retroactive to
last January.- ; ' . ;
Courtesy Can
Save Lives
to ' "say something" about such driv
ing without remembering similar oc
casions when, through an error , in
judgment, we have done the same
thing
Common everyday courtesy is a
good thing for. everyday living and
it produces the same desirable re
sults when put into "practice, while
behind the wheel

; Some pf the accidents that occur on
Perquimans County highways could be
avoided by the exercise of good man-,
ners on the part of the drivers in

the start and to get ahead in a traf

take advantage of other drivers in
a manner that does not reflect pro-
