No one Man is essential Joseph p. Kennedy our am a Bassadore to England ii in Washington to talk with t e president. He is properly discreet about foreign affairs but that cannot be said of his observations respecting Domestic politics. He tells reporter that a with the political economic and social problems that face us internally accentuated by the War it seems to me that no matter How Brilliant or Earnest a Man might be it would take him at least two years to be Able to conduct the affairs of the the government of the United states was founded As a government by Law rather than by men. Of course the Abler and More conscientious the men Are who Are chosen to administer the Law and to fashion policy under it the better for the people. But it would be a major misfortune for this country to Drift far away from the conceit that our political system is proof against disaster because of the loss of any one person. The greatness of our democracy lies in the fact that we walk we talk we forefather and otherwise conduct ourselves largely As we like relying upon established tights and not gracious permission. The reduction of a free system to dependence upon a Man is what we Call dictatorship. Great As the president May be he is not essential to the operation of the american government or even to the exercise of the utmost care to keep the nation out of War. In the due course of political Maneu vers the renomination of or. Roosevelt May occur and the support of him for reelection May become desirable hat we admit having a great admiration for the masterful qualities of the president but we have a higher regard for the american system we believe than or. Kennedy a views indicate that he possesses. Help the finns in response to a general request to newspapers from former president Herbert Hoover the Enterprise enlists As a sponsor for a finnish Relief fund and announces today that contributions will be received and acknowledged through publication in the paper. The fact that or. Hoover has taken charge of the movement assures that world War experience will guide in the use of the fluids. Or. Hoovers service in charge of belgian Relief a Quarter Century ago first brought him prominently to the attention of the american people. He announces that some of his old associates will work with him now and the organization is planned to a make each Dollar reach the finnish Hoople with microscopic when it is borne in mind that or. Hoover was suggested publicly by mrs. Franklin d. Roosevelt As the proper directing head of this movement perhaps there should be no doubt of the generality of the feeling that he is ideally equipped to act. We suggest prompt response by those who feel the impulse to help in this cause. The finnish people about the same in number As the people of North Carolina Are standing the Strain of War unassisted against 170 millions of people. Tho distress of the people is inevitable and americans who Bear in mind that the finns have l Een the one european nation to meet War debts invariably on time and that there is reason to believe that part of their determination to preserve their Liberty at any Cost comes of admiration for the United states and or system of government will want. To help and help now. Send contributions of any amount big or Little to this paper for acknowledgement and prompt Transfer to or. Hoovers organization. Ickes hits Mcnutt the bludgeoning or. Ickes takes a Wallop at Paul v. Mcnutt the Platinum haired masculine Beauty picked by Many enthusiasts for the presidency. The Secretary of the Interior declares the a a liberals in no party can be counted for Mcnutt even though the Roosevelt Ian favor should descend upon him. Or. Ickes makes Clear his belief that or. Roosevelt will not choose or. Mcnutt As his successor but a even if he were selected by or. Roosevelt that statesman thinks he would lie unacceptable to the leftists. Without having had Public expression on the matter from the postmaster general we w Ould be w Illing to Hazard a mite that this is one thing that at least two members of the Cabinet Are agreed that Mcnutt should not be nominated. Many Plain american voters even some who have Felt the Charm of the Mcnutt smile do not like what they see of or. Mcnutt s Home state organization Back of him. It smacks a Little of the Superb organization of Ohio Back of a successful candidate of not too Distant memory. Southern advantage wars in Europe and Asia basically concerned More deeply w Ith Trade advantages than with pure politics should cause the United states to direct its attention More to the markets which lie South of us. An outlet for manufactured goods sufficient to stabilize our own Economy for some years to come can be found in the latin americas and Mexico. The manufacturers record refers to the fact that Germany has been Selling a Quarter billion dollars Worth of goods in South America annually while our own Trade there has Given us a volume of 550,000,000. The record in discussing the great potentialities of that Market for us Points to the advantage the South has in its geographical location. In other words relative nearness to that great foreign Market is another generally ignored reason for establishment of production in the Southern states. In the news the Christian science Monitor declares that a what the United states needs is a four Ham hog. The hogs would consume the Corn surplus and the prosperous Farmers daughters would then put the Cotton surplus on the done to you believe it. The daughters would want silk. Getting it they would thus Supply Japan with Many extra bombs to use against sore bedridden China. Greensboro record a a it a a Long Long Way from Guilford county a modest and peacefully meandering creeks Reedy Fork horse pen troublesome and the two buffaloes a to Germany a storied and Majestic River the Rhine but we dare say there Are some local residents who wish the distance were even deep River has had her tragedies and from revolutionary Days there have come deep dyed tales of the exploits of fanning and his men along her Banks Cornwallis and his army also crossed the River and later had a warm reception by the americans under Greene at Guilford court House. If Guilford a creeks could babble in pure English they would probably Tell of uncivil deeds during the so called civil War. But All these things Are of the America that was in the making. Wars wild alarms now touch us but faintly Here and happily within the sound of the a liquid lapse of our murmuring streams a even by old a a troublesome a we can forget our fears renew our souls and fortify ourselves for whatever the future has in store.

Cation Bruce Cotton in Washington Silver shirt head eludes Dies c Ommittee search Washington. Dec. 8.�? .i1 a William Dudley Pelley head of the Silver shirts will be the next target of the Dies committee of the committee can Only find him. Just before leaving for Texas to take an enforced rest necessitated by overwork. Chairman Martin Dies appointed a special sub committee consisting of congressmen Jerry voor his Joseph Casey and j. Parnell Thomas to quiz Pelley about various ramifications of his career As Silver shirts Leader. The sub committees Job May be a Tough one however for at tile moment no one knows where Pelley can be found. The Dies committee has been trying for weeks to locate him. Get false tips on Pelley twice a its own investigators have flown to Asheville n.c., to serve him with a subpoena Only to learn that the tips which said he was there were false. The u. S. Marshal there has made a number of attempts to serve a Dies subpoena on him without Success. A since the committee has but three investigators on its staff and will go out of existence at the end of Hie year. Or. Voorhis and his colleagues have been Given a Tough Job. In the end. Whether Pelley appear before the committee probably will de Pend on the department of Dies and Voorhis Point out that the committee is not equipped to dig up missing persons and a formal request for help will be made of the Justice department. If Justice puts some a men on the Trail. Pelley May he found of not there in t much the Dies committee can do. Dies at Odds with Murphy relations Between the Justice department and the committee have not been exactly cordial to Date. Last year the committee brought out evidence severely critical of attorney general Murphy a conduct As governor of Michigan during the Auto strikes. More recently there has been some disagreement about whether membership in the communist party proves a person is an agent of a foreign Power with or. Dies taking the affirmative and or. Murphy the negative. The present situation May be helped in that the request for Aid will he made by or. Voorhis. Who is on much More Friendly terms with the administration than is the chairman of the committee. 1 in any Case both Dies and Voorhis Are very anxious to have Pelley appear for questioning. The committee has compiled a Good Deal of material about policy. For one thing it wants to quiz him about the disposition of funds he collected As head of the Silver shirts. It also wants to examine him about the source of material published in his Magazine with an Eye to determining whether any of it As the committee suspects came from official propaganda agencies in Germany. Lastly it wants to make a full study of the organization extent and affiliations of the Silver shirts. Both Pelley and the Silver shirt have been mentioned at various times in testimony before the Dies committee although so far no definite tie linking his group to any of the leading fascist Type organizations in America has been turned up. Members of the committee say they have enough material and sufficient a a leads a from work done Thun far so their questioning of Pelley a when and if he is produced will not he in the nature of a Blind fishing expedition.
