Your General Electric Dealer HD Market St. Dial 9655 Taken From Life By H. A. STALLINGS In our travels and conversa tions in this section we encoun ter frequently the question: “Is there a Southeastern North Carolina and a pride in South eastern North Carolina?” The answer to that is whether or not Southeastern North Caro lina presents a solid, unbroken front. Let us use for illustration the latest happening. Last Friday morning, more than 150 farm ers and business men from Pender, Onslow and Duplin counties went to Raleigh to re quest of the Governor and the chairman of the State Highway Commissions the immediate letting of a contract for the pav ing of 23.4 miles of highway be tween Burggw and Jackson ville. They did not get assur ance of an immediate letting. All they obtained was a promise that bids will be sought in Jan uary and construction will be started in April. If there is such a thing as Southeastern North Carolina consciousness then, without any urging or prodding, Southeast ern North Carolina will present a solid, unbroken front on this one, particular matter That means that every civic club, Obituaries EDWARD A. ORRELL Funeral services for Edward A. Orrell, 90, of Winter Park, who died suddenly Friday afternoon at his home, will be conducted from the chapel of Andrews mor tuary Monday at 3:30 p.m. by the Rev. Andrew J. Howell as sisted by the Rev. E. W. Halleck. Interment will follow in Oak dale Cemetery. Until his retirement 15 years ago Mr. Orrell operated a grocery store and meat market. Surviving are five daughters; Mrs. Theo Schrader, Mrs. Estelle Bowden and Mrs. T. Christenson all of Wilmington; Mrs. Mabel Smith, of Charlotte; and Mrs. William Jorgenson of New York city; one son, J. Dallas Orrell, of Wilmington; one brother, J. A. Orrell of Wilmington; 16 grand children and 24 great grandchil dren. REV. M. A. WARWICK CLINTON, Sept. 13.—Rev. M A. Warwick, 82, died of a heart attack at his home in Newton Grove Friday night at 11:45. He had been in failing health for some time. Funeral rites will be conducted Sunday afternoon at 3 o’clock from St. Paul Free Will Baptist church with Rev Minot Godwin, pastor of the church, in charge assisted by the Rev. R. N. Hinnant of Micro. Interment will be in the family cemetery. Rev. Warwick was a native of Sampson county and was a life long member of St. Paul church. He was a prosperous farmer as well as a minister and was very active in the religious and civic life of the community. He served as minister for 20 years. He is survived by his j wife, Mrs. Vinnie Baggett War wick, five sons, M. H. Warwick, of Roanoke Rapids; H. A. War wick, of Clinton, route three; L. C. and M. A. Warwick, Jr., of the home; Ray R. Warwick of Newton Grove. Also nineteen grand children and fifteen great ; grand children. j I JOHN SIKES (Continued from Page One) ! cooler weather,” Mr. Hess said, “and it’s also about time for dry weather. So I figure if it’s about time for it, it won’t be long before we get some cooler and dryer weather.” A lot of help Mr. Hess turned out to be. Therefore, the only thing I ! can say definitely to the tobacco growers of this area is to quote Mr. Oscar Blanchard, one of the three gentlemen I noted up yon der somewhere as leading the sales on the Wallace market. “Tobacco growers should keep wet tobacco off the marke until cooler weather,” Mr. Blanchard said. “They should keep it hanging in their barns. In no event' should they try to put small piles of the wet tobacco on the warehouse floors. They’ll be hurting themselves because this kind of tobacco just will not bring anything like a decent price in the kind of weather we’ve been having. So-o-o-o, you tobacco growers will just have to watch for your chance: If Mr. Hess gives you some cooler weather those to baccos that are damp now will have better sales prospects. Un til Mr. Hess comes through you’d better keep that tobacco hang ing in your barns. Getting back to the Wallace market, the four warehouses in this sprightly farmers’ town, sold a total of 1,850,000 pounds of to bacco during the past five days. It brought an average of a few pennies more than $43.00 per hundred, thus giving the farm ers of this area $795,500. Which is good money in rainy or dry weather. The Wallace market sold every pound it could during the past week. It is still in the block that has existed here for the past 12 days and farmers'are urgent ly requested to book floor space before bringing in their offer ings. The sensation of color can be produced by stimuli other than light: for instance, pressure on the eyebalk while in complete darkness. Merchants association, Cham ber of Commerce, Board of County commissioners, Board of Education and all similar or ganizations in Southeastern North Carolina immediately and without awaiting any re quest to do so will adopt formal resolutions directing attention to this promise, together with calling for its strict fulfillment and send these resolutions to the Governor and the Highway Commission chief. If this were done the Gover nor and the highway head would be convinced and would be put on notice that Southeast ern North Carolina presents a solid, unbroken front on any im portant matter within the region. If Southeastern North Caro lina is able at all times on all important matters arising withj in it to present a solid, unbrok en front it follows just as sure ly as day follows night that it will commend the respect of every other section and that anyone will think seriously be fore opposing the wishes and ambitions and goals of South eastern North Carolina. Logically the question arises of how a solid, unbroken front can be developed for the region if such a front is not already in existence. The answer to that is a multi tude of Southeastern North Car olina associations that have regular and periodical meetings and that, on no excuse, permit one of these regular sessions to be skipped or omitted. That would result in a lot of people from all over Southeastern North Carolina meeting togeth er regularly, discussing matters of common interests, arriving at an agreement on any matter affecting any part of the area. With such a procedure adhered to uninterruptedly, inevitably a Southeastern North Ca’oiina consciousness arid a Southeast ern North Carolina pride ijfpuld come into permanent existence. We happen to be a Lion and, therefore, feel free to use this example. Suppose the Wilming ton Lions club organized an as sociation of all the presidents of all the civic clubs in South eastern North Carolina. That means an association of all the leaders of the Lions. Rotary, Kiwanis, Exchange and Civitan clubs and all other civic groups located and operating in South eastern hfyaidh Carolina. If the presidents of these clubs met quarterly to discuss and to agree on matters of common interest it would be impossible to prevent a Southeastern North Carolina civic club conscious ness and pride from coming in to existence. The same sort of a South eastern North Carolina associa tions with regular meet ings could be formed for Cham bers of Commerce, Merchants associations, County commis sioners, County School Superin tendents and so on. In the end, and it would not take long, the southeastern North Carolina aride and the Southeastern Morth Carolina consciousness .vould be the most powerful single influence in North Caro ina.
