Japanese officials claim that they Are in Accord with Secretary tary hulls statement that the a status Quot of the dutch East indies must be maintained. But the japanese press supposed to represent the sentiments of those in authority strikes a different note. According to an associated press Story from Tokio Quot the newspaper Hochi said the four Power and nine Power pacts Wero aimed at maintaining the status quo in tile Pacific but that they manifestly Are incompatible with the japanese View it int that until the unfair status quo not Only in Tho far East hut in the whole world is placed by a Lair and now order no i a Ace can lie expected. A no doubt the Hull statement was intended As a political move to restrain Japan s southward expansion but the United states should know that such an attempt would Only inflame the in 19.�s Willard Pike in his Book a children of the rising w Rote a the sharpest focus of Japan s southward gaze is upon the dutch fast indies. Here is a treasure House As yet hardly unlocked a and containing exactly what Japan needs. Again it is Britain that is ultimately concerned. Britain could not tolerate a hostile wedge Between Singapore and Australia. And Only Britain can defend the but Britain now has about All she can say Grace to. Holland the nation which would seem to be chiefly concerned has informed Japan it is neither seeking nor accepting from any nation a Protection for its Rich overseas possessions in the fast indies. And the Brave Little nation by the sea has hinted that if Holland should become involved in the Huro it Ean War the government of the fast indies would la Able to carry on in defending itself and maintaining this nation gets valuable imports from the dutch East indies and does not want her Trade disturbed. However America is not going imperialistic again and it is doubtful that we would go to War Over Pacific islands 6,000 Miles from our shores whatever happens to our Trade. Nonetheless America holds the whip hand Over Japan. When once we break relations with the japanese and cease to Trade with them their economic status will become precarious indeed. Safety consciousness the North Carolina Congress of parents and teachers made no mistake in including among its activities Here a program designed to make the Congress More a safety that program presented this morning through the cooperation of the state Highway safety division portrayed graphically some of the heart Breaks that can result from the carelessness and negligence of pedestrians and Drivers alike. The program featured a skit in which children of Ray Street school participated designed to show Accident causes and results a a program which All mothers and fathers should Sec because it impressed vividly the tragic consequences which result from a Lack of proper care. The skit was followed by a discussion of safety what Steps have been taken to assure greater Highway safety in North Carolina and what further programs can be inaugurated to make children and adults alike More for after All. Until All Drivers and All pedestrians achieve that a safety there will continue to be a terrible Accident toll in North Carolina. That Bright pupils can forge ahead and Dull pupils can have the extra attention they need. Considering the Tempo of the times a boy or girl who can finish seven grades in five years should be permitted to do so. The Little red school House of Days gone by had its advantages in that pupils were advanced according to aptness. All in All teacher fitness must not be lost sight of. There Are teachers with a Grade certificates who Are poor instructors. Again there Are teachers having a Grade certificates Well prepared in mind and heart to carry on certain work in the school. As we see it this Standard business has become too rigid. So Many hours and so Many units per be have never made a Good teacher and never will. There is something to that old Story about Mark Hopkins on one end of a log and a student on the other making a College. In the Spring an old mans fancy with Dale Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people mini Vii m standards in elementary schools the meeting Here of representatives of the Parent teacher associations in North Carolina is serving to show the great Progress being made by our Public schools As the result of Parent interest in material equipment anti teacher fitness and the interest shown by teacher s in the Homes i Epi resented by their charges. This Mutual interest has been of special Benefit to elementary schools where in their formative years children need the Best guidance that the schools can give and All the encouragement possible from Well ordered Homes. In this connection we think it Well to give a summary of minimum standards for elementary schools which has been worked out by a committee of superintendents teachers and College professors of education in cooperation with members of the state department of Public instruction. We take the summary from state school facts published at Raleigh 1. A six St ult \ 2. At Toast too teacher tot Grade. 3. A majority of teachers holding class a certificates. 4 a minimum term of 160 actual teaching Days 5. An average attendance of 32-36 pupils per teacher. 6. An accurate Scholastic attend and health record for each Pupil or seven year course of each on december 31. 1936. A Young Man from Hibbing. Minnesota stood on the sidewalk in new York and looked at a store window being whitewashed from the inside. The store previously had been a lunch room and the Young Man had been working there. But the owner of the building would not renew the lease so the window was being whitewashed in order to make changes and get a new tenant for the store at an increased Price. The Young Man had been a soda Jerker there. But now his Job was gone. His name was Sam Tapley. He had been a soda Jerker All his working life. Imda hopeless looking Wasny to it ? but you Don t know Sam Tapley from Hibbing Minnesota. In addition. I forgot to say he had a wife. Now watch and see what he did. He had saved $300. But that was t All. He had an idea he had noticed when he was jerking soda that on Rainy Days people in the business Section telephoned in and had food brought to their offices. Why it be a Good idea to Start a business of supplying office workers with lunch in their offices could he do it on $300? Ile did t know. But he was willing to find out. So he rented a Back room up a flight of stairs placed a Deposit for Gas and electricity a Telephone and a refrigerator. He bought lumber and car entered his own tables. He bought too thermos bottles at sixty cents each. He had seen Coffee served in paper cups hut it grew cold leaked. Twenty six Days after he stood on the sidewalk watching the window being whitewashed he opened for business previously he had sent three errand boys through the office District Between 44th and 52nd streets and sixth and Park avenues with printed menus. There was no Street address. Just the Telephone number. Would any Calls come in the Telephone rang one cup of Coffee. Nothing else. But he delivered it. When the Day is As Over he had taken in Only $4.25. But the next Day it was $9.95. The next Day it was 16.30. Then it relived $61.35. Sam Tapley was the first Man in the history of new York to specialise solely in lunches delivered to offices. Today Ive is King of that Bitt iness. On an average Day he serves 700 lunches. And he now has 3.000 thermos bottles. Seven trunk Telephone lines in his office take orders. He has never served a meal in his place of business. What did Sam Tapley do he went into one of the oldest businesses in the world serving food and developed a new idea. It is making Money for him lots of Money. He has Many imitators but he pay s no attention to them. Does things his own Way. Makes a Success. Hooray for Sam Tapley. Friday april 19. 0to Brace Cotton in Washington Bruce cation to i Tuii of Kil Mav provide impetus for Guam base Washington april 19. A Holland s danger of getting drawn into the War May have the somewhat roundabout effect of giving the u. Navy its Long sought Harbor improvements on the Island of Guam. It figures out like this if Holland is invaded her Rich East indies Empire is left up in the air. A British or u. Protectorate has been suggested. Japan would t like that and probably would move set up a protectorate of her own neither the u. Nor Britain would like that in turn and out of it All there might easily develop a lot of trouble. And Guam is a lot closer to the Netherlands East indies than any adequate naval base the u. Now own. Basl could be Eck ulv built the Navy has been asking for Harbor improvements on Guam for Over a year. Last Winter Congress voted the idea Down fearing Japan would look on it As a threat. The same item was put in the Navy Bill this year the House again voted it Down hut the Senate is putting it Back and this time it May stick. On the face of it. The measure is simple enough. All that s asked is enough Money to dredge the knobs of Coral out of the otherwise Fine Harbor so patrol planes could land there safely.

Compared with haphazard methods of the schools in the �?T80�?Ts these standards too ambitious.
