Abstract:
Leutze discusses the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway from colonial times to the present. Unnamed in earlier times, the waters were simply a pathway used by colonists, sailors, fishermen, and commercial interests. An influential 1808 report, “Public Roads and Canals,” by Albert Gallatin, Secretary of the Treasury, called for a series of internal improvements to link states in the young nation together. In 1859, the first barge passed along the waterway. In 1913, Congress purchased land and began planning for a waterway from Norfolk, Virginia, to Beaufort, North Carolina. By 1936, the route was complete to the South Carolina line. Leutze concludes by describing towns and scenery along the route today.

Abstract:
The North Carolina General Assembly passed the Speaker Ban Law in 1963. The legislation was an attempt to prevent communists from appearing on state-owned college and university property. A court decision struck the law down in 1968. A recent documentary film called Beyond the Wall, and a book, Communists on Campus: Race, Politics and the Public University in Sixties North Carolina, discusses the Speaker Ban controversy. Longley discusses the two and the genesis of the law. The role of Leo Jenkins, president of then East Carolina College (now ECU), in suggesting a law compromise which was acceptable to the legislature, is left out of both.

Abstract:
What is close to home, offers free parking, requires walking only one hundred feet to reach the airport terminal, and has four flights a day to and from Atlanta? It's the new Delta Airline-owned service Atlanta Southeast Airlines (ASA) that began April 1, 2005, at Kinston Regional Jetport. ASA is a big regional carrier that employs over 6,000 and has a fleet of 146 aircraft. Previously residents in the east had to drive to Raleigh for many airline flights. The convenience of Kinston is drawing passengers in droves with passenger loads exceeding 80 percent.
