LET THE PEOPLE
KNOW THIS PLAN
Time For Elizabeth" City To
Launch Move For a Real
Community Center
Elizabeth City will have to
wake up with its plans for a
Community Center, if it is not
to be eclipsed by the city of Kin
ston, the county seat of Lenoir.
Kinston plans to build a Com
munity Center to cost $300,000
and it has secured an option on
eight acres of land near the
heart of the city, upon which to
erect its building.
The proposed Kinston Community
Center will house the city's public
school plant, Chamber of Commerce.
Public Library, Farm and Home Dem
onstration workers, etc., and provide
an auditorium, gymnasium, - natator
ium, shower baths, roof garden, ban
quet 'hall, etc., for all the people.
What Kinston plans to do, a num
ber of far sighted Elizabeth City men
and women have Deen piaumug -v
spring for some time. The Chamber of
Commerce of Elizabeth City has been
collecting plans and data on such com
munity centers for months and has
only been waiting for the Elizabeth
City public to more keenly sense the
need of such ' a community enterprise.
Elizabeth City needs a larger and
more modern High School building.
ElizabetJi City needs a big auditor
ium and public forum.
Elizabeth City needs a public Li
brary. Elizabeth City needs a. banquet nail
for community use.
Elizabeth City needs a public swim
ming pool, shower baths and gymnas
ium for all her people.
Elizabeth City needs more ground
fr,r- rmt door sames and recreation.
All of these needs can be combined
in one big modern community build-
that would proviae fuuwuuu,
entertainment, amusement, reciwuu..
and inspiration for all the people, rich
and poor, high and low. And thru
such a community center all of the
people of the city could be brought
together as in on other way. brought
to know each other, to understand each
other and to be neighborly and co
operative as never before.
Its a big dream, a fine ideal for a
little city and right in line .with the
best thought of" modern times. This
newspaper hopes to see the Chamber

Out His Water Bucket Bought
50 Years Ago
Washington, N. C threatens to pull
out of the Chautauqua circuit. Accord
ing to the Washington Daily Jtfews,
Chautauqua in that northeastern North
Carolina is a flat failure. The Daily
News of that city says:
"This makes the fifth year that a
Chautauqua has come to Washington.
"From the very beginning the guar
antors have had to work hard in order
to dispose of their allotment of tickets.
There hasn't been a single year that
the guarantors haven't had to dig down
into their pockets to meet the deficit.
"When the Chautauqua first came
to Washington it was a new form of
entertainment to our people. They
didn't know exactly oi wiuu. ti w
sisted, nor were they aware of its pur
poses and intent. In order to help es
tablish the Chautauqua It probably
was perfectly all right for our business
men - to become guarantors.

Suit for damages in the sum oi
$3,000 has been brought against the
Chautauqua Company by Mrs. Hattie
Rutter, who lives on east Church street .
in this city, and an attachment has j
been filed against the Chautauqua
property now in this city, including
the tent and equipment of the company.
In 1916 while attending Chautauqua
Mrs. Rutter tripped and fell over a
tent rope as she was leaving a night
performance, and injured her arm.
Hence the suit for damages and writ
of attachment, which will necessitate
the giving of bond by Chautauqua be
fore the tent and other property the
company now has can be removed
The case will be tried at some future
term of court. Mrs. Rutter's attorneys

TO ASK MERCHANTS FOR
FRIDAY HALF HOLIDAY
Clerks Want Usfual Friday Half Holi-
ady During the Hot Months,
July and August
Elizabeth City retail clerks will ap
peal to tiie merchants of the city this
week to close their stores Jfriaay an.
ernoons during July and August. The
merchants have done this for the past
three years, but there is no permanent
agreement to this effect and the stores
have to be signed up anew every year.
There is a rumor that one or more
big stores will try to oppose the Fri
dav afternoon closing plan this sum
mer. This rumor is hardly fair to the
merchants, as the merchants have
hitherto fallen readily in line for this
h-umane and popular summer half
holidav. The merchant who tried tc
oppose the plan now would not find
himself very popular with the cierKE
or with the public.

facts concerning the city's milk supply
at an early date.
Dr. Peters challenged the Water

water supply could be made good and

Tuesday, August 5, 1919, Pas
quotank county will vote on the
question of Stock Law. That
promises to be the liveliest elec
tion held in this county in a de
cide or more.
Prior to the general election last fall
an effort was made to -make Stock
Law an issue in that election. Advo
cates, of Stock Law tried their darn
dest to commit the legislative candi
date to the issued W. O. Saunders re
fused . to commit himself and put it
squarely up to the county to fight it
out. If the people want Stock Law
they can have it on their own say so.
If They don't want it, then they can
kill it at the ballot box.
Representative Saunders, thought he
had done everything a reasonable man
could be expected to do, when he left
the question of stock law to popular
vote. But right there he made a mis
take. He failed to take into account
the unreasonableness of human nature
and now finds himself criticised by a
lot of people, thruout the county. Many
farmers opposed to Stock Law are
criticising Saunders because the peo
ple in Elizabeth City will vote in the
stock law election. Farmers are say
ing that the man in town hasn't any
thing to do with a question of primary
concern to the man in the county.
People who make that sort of critic
ism forget the fact that W. O. Saunders
is not responsible for the city man hav
ing a voice in county politics. And if
W. O. Saunders had taken Elizabeth
City out of county politics Pasquotank
farmers probably would have run him
out of the county when they found
out what had happened to them.
The truth of the matter is, Elizabetn
City pays 65 per. cent of the county
taxes. The grand total of all county
taxes last year amounted to$82,691.52,

The house, following three hours'

a bill to repeal the law on the last

an amendment to make the repeal ef

Chautauqua for 1920.
Elizabeth City leads all Chautauqua
towns in this state in the Chautauqua
spirit, according to Mrs. Eliza K. Ul-

farming population of this county that

then the farming population of this
county would be up against It. Next

selfishly afford to be deprived of her

But Elizabeth City isn't that selfish.
Elizabeth City is immensely interested
in the welfare of the whole county and
gladly assumes her responsibility. A
