Glenn Frank for two years one of the country a Ablest phrase makers or. Glenn Frank has Laboured on a declaration of principles and purposes for the Republican party. He brought Forth a document which is Rich in affirmation of what we know As it would have been surprising if this great labor had not resulted in a Fine statement. How much of the Frank utterance will be Woven into the pattern of the ultimate . Platform for the Campaign this year remains to be determined but we conceive it to be an important paper. Despite the presumption that the individuals moral sense is inherent and powerful society needs moral and ethical codes. Quite As surely we need political codes for the necessary regimentation of the Force that manifests itself in government. We Trust that each of the two i eat parties will state As clearly As possible their faiths in order that the Campaign May be something More than a contest Over the National reins Between two men or two groups of men. Perhaps More now than ordinarily Clear statements of purpose and program Are needed in the political life of this nation of ours. Added to the minor grumbling of the people in political disagreement is a menacing external sound a that of people who not Only cherish other ideologies than ours but who attempt to ridicule democracy As we know it. There is no real danger to our system of government As Long As the threat is from the outside Only. But in order that external pressure shall find us too hard a nut to crack we need to be sound and firm in our own Confidence inside the Shell. Reaffirmation of americanism by any party in carefully considered language cannot fail to be helpful in establishment of effective Solidarity. All parties can contribute to that Solidarity if by no other process than the furn ashment of ideas for each party to shoot at. The rhetorical Side of great Russia Moscow reports today that russians Fleet has walked a attempts of English and French warmongers�?T1 to deliver supplies munitions and troops to the finns. They Art trying to Start a War Are they one might conclude from the Way the communique is worded that no fighting is in Progress on the ice covered isthmus of Finland and that the Western allies were attempting to Start something. The following quotation from frat official. Utterance by its Florid language suggests doubt rather than Confidence a your mighty Fleet stands guard on the naval pm tiers ready to conquer any in my dreaming to attack Hie sacred shores of the socialist in View of the exhibition Russia has made in Finland there is some likelihood that the world will reach the judgment that the soviet is stronger in rhetoric than in action. The scandinavian explanation of the presence of British naval Force in Arctic Waters differs from the russian suggestion. The theory is that England is trying to Block the movement of norwegian Iron to Germany and nazi ships from Murmansk homeward. That is More probable than russians notion. England hardly could Hope to land troops or supplies in sufficient number and quantities to be of great help to Finland. If Russia is involved in War with England and France before the end of the year and we deem it quite Likely in All probability the involvement will come through naval clashes and the tightening band of the England blockade on several frontiers. These Frontier will not be limited to the Arctic area but will include those which touch russian interests in Southeastern Europe a would surmise. The indications increase that England and France Are using the Winter months to locate navies and armies with a View to a mighty offensive in the Spring. The eloquence of or. La Guardia among uncomplimentary statements made by mayor la guar Dia about the present aspirants for the Republican presidential nomination is one All embracing remark does the mayor mean a a phooey to that agile youngster who has been credited with a doing a mighty Job on House cleaning for Gotham or. Dewey would the mayor leave the country a right to infer that or. Dewey a efforts appear in a different Light when viewed from the City Hall or. La Guardia is held in High esteem As a House cleaner himself. As a matter of fact this Man who has been Republican Independent Democrat and something other from time to time in his personal political affiliation took on an augean task against the will of tammany. A year or so before the last election of mar la Guardia to succeed himself new York somewhat generally believed he was to prove to be a one term mayor effective in cleaning up but too hostile to the a a boys to win re election. He went Back in office and in the absence of reports to the contrary we had assumed that the Youthful Republican Champion of righteousness was in favor with the mayor As an Aid in making new York a better place. Now of . Candidates individually and collectively the mayor says an important change in newspaper Field Greensboro a excellent newspapers owned and operated by one company is changing general managers in the immediate future. Andrews Joyner or. W to has been at the Helm for the past two years is resigning to return to the general practice of Law. The papers Are not announcing his successor but we assume will do so within the next few weeks since or. Joyner a resignation is effective March 15, or As soon thereafter As the succession can he arranged. We wish the company Well in the important business of selection and our Good wishes follow or. Joyner whose adventure in newspaper management is proving to he relatively Brief. Or. Joyner a dedication of time to his profession was interrupted once before for a term of years. He moved from Greensboro a City attorney ship into City manage ment there and administered Greensboro a business until drawn in 1937 into the work he now is doing. His record As municipal officer was an excellent one. Something More than casual neighbourly interest is Felt about the successor to or. Joyner As we recognize the importance of Greensboro a press in the state and particularly in our part of the state. The news achieved a reputation for vigorous enlightened Public service under the direction of the Able men who founded it and any change in management effecting the continuation of the service is More than interesting. In the news the stanly new s and press bemoans the fact that while there Are a plenty of candidates in the Field nary a Cigar has been tendered. Can it be the new Deal influence a at least it could hardly be called a raw Deal. Goodness knows How Many candidates lost votes in the old Days by passing out bum cigars they the cigars were so bad. Former vice president Marshall was constrained to say that what this country needed was a Good 5-cent Cigar. There Ai Many Good brands now but it takes More than a Cigar to change a hardheaded americans political ideas. With a a Dale. Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people this True Story is about a clerk who waited nine years for his Chance. His name is Wiuf Mikkelsen and if you will go to 393 fourth Avenue new York you can meet him and talk to him. Only he in t a clerk any More. He a the Boss. This is How it happened he was born in Denmark and lived there until he was 18 years old. Then he came to this country Steerage and finally got a Job As a clerk in an Export company which sold articles of american manufacture of foreign countries. Nine slow footed years limped by and he was still a clerk. He was still waiting his Opportunity to distinguish himself. Alongside sat a Man who had had a great Deal More experience and who was his Superior in his office. One Day this Superior tossed a Catalon into the wastebasket. Mikkelsen fished it out of the waste Basket and began thumbing through it. The Catalon was for a new invention which had just come on the Market an outboard motor. Suddenly an idea popped into Mikkelsen a head. Why. An outboard motor would be just the thing for the fishermen of Denmark j then they could be Independent of oars and wind. The More he thought about it the More excited he grew. But before he tried the idea out on the Boss he wrote to the manufacturer and got prices he Mote to Denmark and to Scandinavia he worked on the idea for five months. Finally the Briss called him in and said he was spending too much time on the idea and to give it up. Mikkelsen pleaded for More time. A to give you three More weeks Quot the Hoss said. And Mikkelsen pitched in harder than Ever. The Boss called him again and again Mikkelsen pleaded for More time. The Boss gave him a week. A tide turned. An order for an outboard motor came through. Mikkelsen was delighted. Delighted he was exuberant he hopped a train and went to Milwaukee to see the manufacturer. The company was struggling Hadnot thought of the scandinavian Market. Mikkelsen got a Good contract and came Home. The next month ten orders came in. In one year he had orders for 5,000 motors. That Catalon he had fished out of the wastebasket was the Means of his going into business for himself. He turned in so Many orders to the manufacturer that he built a new factory on the strength of these orders. Mikkelsen the clerk who had waited nine years for his Chance became the big Gest outboard motor agent in the world. And that is what he is doing today. But now he has a magnificent showroom on fourth Avenue. New York. I asked him if he thought other clerks could find chances for themselves. And he said Quot yes. Sooner or later. The thing is to keep trying Day after Day. Finally your Chance will comr. I never dreamed mine would come out of the wastebasket but it Start scrap Rook Many readers Are cutting out these columns and pasting them in scrap books so that they May review and study them As a text Book on Success. Why not Start your Success scrap Book now there were a lot of honest differences on the g. O. P. Program committees report depending mostly on whether the critics were democrats or republicans.

The people of Europe get together to float 9n tis Ujj Toofik european exiles in Havana while away time gambling by George Ross Havana feb. 24. Thousands of refugees from totalitarian countries Are living in and around Havana until their Mast precious Hopes Are realized and they Are granted admission to the United states. Most of them Are German of course and they Supply one of this tropical capitals Many contradictions. For one of the curious features of the current season is the number of refugees who patronize the gaming tables at the Casino the Best bars and hotels. You see Many of these exiles whiling away the time in their temporary Refuge at the races in Oriental Park or in the Casino after dark. # i heard someone of Well informed background Here place a conservative estimate of 17 million dollars As the sums Dej Kvisted by these refugees in the Banks of Cuba assurances of their self support during their stay Here. So that seems to conflict with stories of the impossibility of taking any Money out of the totalitarian countries. But the re Are thousands Here and a great number of them Are by no Means wealthy. I talked to a melancholy refugee this evening a russian who first went to the United states illegally and then came to Cuba in order to legally re enter the u. S. He has been Here six months and his chances look leak. The labor Laws do not permit him to work and the enforced idleness has cast him into the deepest depression.

For in ordering up the worst Winter weather in years he has done things to the Road that throws the spotlight of Public interest on on of the planks in or. Maxwell s platform. While other candidates have pledged themselves in a general Way to the fullest improvements of our highways or. Maxwell recites the pleasing detail that fifty million dollars could be spent on them without calling for additional taxes. And being a tax expert he is taken at i word. It is such a pleasing revelation that the taxpayer does no to bother to join or. Maxwell in wading through the details of the plan for fear that he might Wake up and find it Only a dream. And the astute or. Maxwell is not slow in taking advantage of this seasonal situation while the time is Ripe to drive Home his Point. He tells the Fairmont rotary club that the dirt roads of North Carolina Are the weakest Point in the state s social and economic structures because they serve important communities that become completely impassable in bad weather. A thousands of our Rural population a avs or. Maxwell Quot have been out off from markets schools and churches. I have just Learned of one Community that recently lost Gallons of milk because of impassable roads. Similar conditions obtain in Many sections of the in his fifty million Dollar program of Road improvement without additional taxes. Or. Maxwell proposes to use some of the funds already accumulated in the name of the highways but not available for immediate a pending. We reckon taxpayers living on these undependable highways Are wishing that or. Maxwell had thought of that plan earlier and pressed it a particularly those who lost their milk.
