Prayer for today suggested by the upper room daily devotional guide our father we Pray thee thai thou Wilt teach us that our lives Are True Only As they reflect the image of thy son open our eyes that we May see him wherever he nature in the crowded streets in the hearts and lives of men and women. We Pray in the master s name. Amen. The press guardian of the people the right of the people to know is press s Well guarded heritage what you see in the picture above is a Silver miniature of. A colonial press to be presented at v a., july 39 to an Ameri can selected As an outstanding Champ Ion of Freedom of information. In a very real sense the press is the Symbol of american Freedom. It champions the right of people to know. Where dictators aspire to Power they aim first at suppressing or subverting the news. If they can shackle the press and turn it into a propaganda medium to print Only what they think the people should know Victory is in their hands. If they can keep the people ignorant or Misin formed they can shape things to suit their own purposes. They stay in Power Only so Long As they can control the output of the press. The american newspaper has by and Large been True to its Trust. American publishers and editors have died in defense of their press. The surest Way to unite american news paper opinion in solid front is for the Freedom of the press to be challenged. The press stands apart As the one medium which More than any other has guaranteed and protected the right of the Public to know. Like the Church no Community of any size is without its newspaper or would be without it., it is the Citadel of free Dom the bulwark of an informed peo ple. We of the profession Are pledged to preserve this heritage.

According to the news and Cour Ier it is predicted the deficit will Racli by the end of 1957. The Charleston paper comments if a monthly accounting were published on City Hall finances there would be. No need for mystery about the extent of Charleston s debt. The first step toward controlling the Charlotte news debts is to detect them at once. Secrecy does not pay in govern ment. The longer bad news is put off the worse it sounds when it finally gets out. The Best politics is Good government. Secrecy and debt Are nol the earmarks of Good that is Good All municipalities. A regular accounting to the Public is not Only a sound control of spending. It is also a Good Way to build Public Confidence in governmental integrity.

Kook is after the Confederate War of those who had fought so Vallant in for the lost cause refused to surrender including some Mem Bers of the pee Dee Light Artill Ery. They were attached to Gen eral Johnston s army that surren dered at Greensboro. But before the surrender they left the army rather than Lay Down their arms their purpose being to return Home gather additional men and supplies and join general Kirley Smith in Texas to continue the fight. There is also the Story of another group sonic of whose do scan clans live in the pee Dee today. They were among those who did surrender but upon returning Home became so distressed with conditions Urr Clur reconstruction that i hey rite ruined to quit the coun try. Between 186fi and 1879. They exiled themselves to Brazil where they started life anew under con Drew Pearson what makes this discrimination All the More glaring is that the armed forces swear i presumably not on a stack of bibles their chaplain quotas Are filled strictly according to Church membership. This would entitle the. Orthodox to about 100 chaplains and the mormons about 80, instead of 10 apiece. F.n1 the orthodox complained about being Short changed the defense department suggest cd Hoy use Catholic chaplains. The orthodox however have had some bitter doctrinal disputes with the catholics. Perhaps be cause of ibis the armed services classify the orthodox As protes Tants which makes it All the More paradoxical that they should be asked to use Catholic Chap Lains. Most army. Navy and air Force bases discourage Bui still allow any denomination to con duct its own services. The catch is that the services usually Aren t per milled at the regular Church permitted at the regular Church time. Lackland air Force base.

Dillons comparable to the Pioneer Days of Early America in this late 1920s, Frank g. Carpenter a journalist of travel visited whal he termed a Colony in Brazil which was described by him As the most interesting in All Hal country.

The Stoky of Villa americana begins Wilh the close of the War Between the states the town hav ing been founded by that com Pany of americans who went to that country after the defeat of Southern at that time Don Pedro pm Porer of Brazil offered free land in attract settlers. Disheartened by the antics of carpetbaggers and Scal wags the subject of Migra ing to Brazil was widely discussed in meetings throughout the South Ern states. About 1500 or More decided to sell their lands in the South gather what Money they could and accept the offer of the brazilian emperor. Migrations look place Over the years from 1800 to is170.
