After dinner, Gilliam Wood.
Highway Commissioner from
Fdcnton, discussed the present
situation confronting the High
way 17 improvement plan. He
emphasized the need for more
monetary appropriations for
highway construction and im
provement and that this'couli
come only from the legislators
in Raleigh' allotting more for
this purpose. Wood further
stated that with the increase of
motor traffic on North Carolina
highways, the situation is seri
ous in many areas of the state.
Virginia is conscious of- U. S.

tery and that it will become the
major southern access for the
Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel.
Wood also stated that the
Ocean Highway .authorities have
requested that the highway be
changed to' No. 5 throughout its !
length. This would simplify
confusion .particularly in and
around metropolitan "areas.

f'.'i nn have deteriorated,
The crmniittec now invesli-
gfiting h:: situation has decid
el thai a complete instrumental
hand, sin n as Krlenton and Eliza
beth City, would be far too ex--pensive
to be feasible. Ksti-
bugle corps, accompanying a
rifle drill team, would give the
county school a marching unit
without requiring ruch high fi
nancial assistance. The group is
already investigating the equip
ment and uniiorms needed!, as
well as personnel.
Many of the uniforms previ
ously used by the high school
are available and every effort is
being made to use the uniforms
that are still good. Some of
them, however, have det'.rior;-!.-ed
with age and will have to be
replaced.
Francis Nixon and Dave Hal

Mr. Woodard, principal, in the
high school and have had con
siderable response with volun

participation is needed from tiie
