"Hi
n
Dorothy Nixon und Super Dollar
Supervisor Harold Lamb.
After the opening, mayor, Bill
Cox, had this to say:
Today has been a very im
portant day in ou town aijd
area. The opening of Phillips,
Brothers furniture store and the
opening of the New Super
Dollar store. Both of, these
stores are a credit 'and an im
portant step in the growth of our
area. We need more of this. We
need to improve our shopping
facilities and have a greater
variety. For I belive that one
business compliments another,
that competition is the life of all
business. I hope that this is the
beginning of continuing growth
in our town and county.
cumulation of interest, during
1971 on outstanding E Bonds
amounted to $1,990 million,
January-November . redemp
tions, at cost price, at $3,867
million, were 18 per cent below
last year's $4,718 million (at
cost price). Accrued interest
paid out on E Bonds (and un
classified Freedom Shares)
redeemed during 1971 totaled
$941 million. "
Mistletoe And Kisses
; Traditionally,, when a boy
kisses a girl under the
mistletoe, he must pluck a
berry from the bough and give it
to her. When all its berries are
gone, the mistletoe loses its
magic and the kissing stops.
Tradition also held that a girl
who wasn't kissed under the
mistletoe would not marry in
the coming year, the National
Geographic Society says.

treatments, as none is truly
effective. Set up the tree away
from heat and where it won't
block doorways or stairs. . . .
Artificial trees should be
clearly marked as made of
slow-burning materials. Look
for the Underwriters'
Laboratories (UL) label on
trees with built-in electrical
systems. . . . With metal trees,
use only indirect lighting to
avoid the possibility of electric
shock.
2. Check lighting strings for
frayed wires, loose connections,
broken sockets. Replace only
with UL-labeled sets. Bulbs
made in the U.S. generally are
safest; imported bulbs may
have dangerous hot spots.
Electric cord sets with built-in
fuses are strongly recom
mended, -i Always turn off
tree and Jther indoor holiday
lighting when leaving the house
or retiring for the night. . , . For
outdoor lighting, use only sets
UL-Iisted for this purpose.
3. Noncombustible materials
such as metal, glass and
asbestos should be used for
decorations ' as much as
possible. Make sure cotton
batting, flock and decorating
paper are , flameproofed.
Natural evergreen decorations
dry quickly, burn readily, so
keep them well removed from

Perquimans Chamber
Had Typical Year
The Perquimans County
Chamber of Commerce had a
typical year in 1971 - a very busy
one.
It has published in this
newspaper and in. itr
newsletters through the year
lists of most of its major ac
tivities, but there are still some"
people who ask - "what does the
Chamber do?,s
At its December meeting the
Board of Directors decided that
a yerend report, similar to the
managers report given at the
annual banquet, would be
another satisfactory way of
explaining Chamber work.
Speaking of the banquet, like
its predecessors it was the most
successful one yet. Very well
attended, it lived up to past
standards in providing an ex
cellent speaker and en
tertainment, and a bevy of gifts
and prizes, plus an excellent
meal provided by the Hertford
Grammar School PTA.
, A week earlier the Chamber's
annual Christmas parade
proved to be the best yet - with
more floats and bands than
ever. In spite of bad weather,
there were plenty of people on
hand to enjoy the fun.
Suffice it to say, great
preparation is always required
to get both events ready.
In December, 1970 another
touch was added to the
Christmas scene - a Chamber
sponsored competition was held
to help beautify the area. Prizes
were given to the best decorated
homes and the best decorated
businesses. This will be
repeated in 1972.
The Chamber, through the
year, continued to work with the
Restoration Association, in
helping to make the Newbold
White House and the Theophilus
White House eventually become
major tourist attractions in the
state.
One of its most important
tasks was taking slides of both
buildings, putting them into a
presentation - a presentation
which has already been shown,
To The Citizens Of Perquimans County
What Have Christmas Seals done for you Lately?
They've helped to fight Emphysema and T.B. Two dread
diseases that can strike anyone at any time. That might not
sound like a lot if those diseases have never touched you or
anyone in your family so take a deep breath and read on
. Christmas Seals are helping in the fight against air pollution,
too. An that's everybody's problem, from teen-ager to old
ager. So please, use Christmas Seals. Do it for yourself, your
family, everyone. They do more for everyone.

Seals do so today. ... V

and already resulted in a $300
incentive grant. The Chamber
has also been instrumental in
publicizing the work of the
association.
Publicity being one of it:,
main jobs, the county has
received lots of that in area
newspapers - more than ever
before. Many of the articles that
appeared in the Daily Advance
were based on suggestions
made by the Chamber.
In addition, many articles and
pictures emanted from the
Chamber office. It resulted not
only in area newspaper
coverage - but some fine
coverage in both State and
Wildlife magazines.
Publicity of a quieter sort also
emanated from the Chamber
office.
Through letters, support of
projects important to the
Albemarle area were shown.
This method was used to show
our backing of a medical school
at East Carolina University
(Chamber President Erie Haste
Jr. also attended a meeting in
Washington, N.C. on the sub
ject.). Letters were used in support
of the idea of making the
Dismal Swamp Canal into a
park (but not changing the
area's ecology). The Chamber
distributed to its members, and
others, names of state
representatives - and a
suggested letter to write to
them showing support.
Of course the Chamber was
also responsible, for the most
part, in bringing a doctor into
the area and in helping to build
up the clinic now in use. It also
worked with one of the nation's
leading medical magazines
Medical World News - in
publicizing ths county via a
story and a front page picture.
It conducted a contest to
promote July 4 sales it acted as
mediator between member
complainants and the telephone
company - it is continuing its
