As the Law makers go into action no Kess is assembling in Washington and the Legisla is for the state Are gathering Raleigh. The people watch Ith mixed emotions. For one Jason hopeful of what the kayaker will do there can be und one fearful of the in Pond a action. For better or for orse those who steer us Politi Jally for the next two years Are fitting into their huddles. As far As the North Carolina tuition is concerned there is is likelihood of disturbing Bangos in governmental plans an usual despite Large probes netting amelioration. Dur the hard years and the lean t state worked out a course he matter of taxation a course inst which the people in Large t rebelled and it is set to Fol a that course indefinitely. The resent governor has affirmed is Faith in it As the Best under ent conditions and there is to enough heat in popular re fitment or enough Resolute purse Back of substitute plans to Ause much of a fight in the new Assembly.

Under the circumstances the general Assembly this year should get Back o a reasonable nearness to the id 60-Day session. The ministry of suffering Many Homes in this Vicinity have been visited within the past two months by death and thus sorrow has mingled with the Joys of the Holiday season. The physicians say that there has been no epidemic nonetheless Winter has taken a rather heavy toll among patient sufferers and those aged persons who were physically unable to Bear up under seasonal changes. At the funeral sunday afternoon of mrs. Annie Ragan Arm Field at the Home of the late mrs. E. T. Harmon miss Clara i. Cox pastor of Springfield friends Church spoke of the ministry of suffering. She told How mrs. Arm Field had for approximately twelve years been confined to her Home As the result of a stroke of paralysis. Yet in All this time the patient had not Only not complained at her lot but her Fine spirit had been an inspiration to All who visited her. Thus the preparation of mind and heart in her Home Church and College which was the mainstay of her life during All her widowed years enabled her even in her suffering to carry on a ministry of Good cheer among her friends and relatives. It is not too much to say that such a ministry is a Sweet savor of life which will endure until the end of time. Death loses much of its sting when we think that those who have passed have but joined a the choir invisible of those immortal dead who live again in minds made better by their in the news by no Means did death take a Holiday on new years Day. The record shows that 259 persons died violently motor crashes accounting for More than 150 deaths. America is becoming More safety conscious. If a Legal Holiday Ever passes without a fatality from automobile accidents there should be an extra Day set paid for fasting prayer and perhaps crossing fingers. As a people we mean Well just As did Abraham Lincoln when he wrote a a. Lincoln his hand and pen he will be Good but god knows Cabinet member displayed too much affection. Now Goebbels is in a Hospital his rival and his friends Are in a concentration Camp and the world at Large knows that even love cannot run smoothly under the Iron hand of at this distance it looks As if a cynic might indulge in a bit of laughter rather than in looking for a text. It is possible to believe that even in Germany there Are some a a natural people who inwardly feel that a sacrosanct bully a got what was coming to tuesday january 3, 1939 the Reidsville review tells the Story of How a customers ideas of Thrift lost her Money. She walked into the store of a certain Small town and told the merchant that she would buy a desired article if she could get it at the same Price she would have to pay in so and so City. The merchant closed the Deal and later remarked that she had paid More than his regular Price. Many local merchants could Tell similar stories which clearly reveal that there Are hundreds of customers who Are harmless As doves but not Wise As serpents.

As this is written the answer As not cleared but we Trust that will record that Rodanthe has of been lured into abandonment f a custom which added measurably to its distinction and help to give the coast country that piety which spice for the Lamier at least. The world is finding somewhat easier ways to the Sand Bank settlements. We recall the Effort if a charming woman native of Hatteras who was called on to de Cribe the Best Way to reach her ome Village. Finally she simplified her Story but suggesting that he Best Way probably was to be Quot aught on a Hook. Rodanthe is isolated North of and about like Hatteras and that solution is penetrated not too of in yet. The Charm of remoteness s not destroyed but if Rodanthe Oey modern to the extent of Dis How Many persons really saw the Rose bowl game estimates varied from 90,000 to 93,000. At a rough guess we would say that the number there surpassed the entire population of High Point Thomasville and Lexington. If this seems unbelievable it might in1 Well to recall the statement of Hendrik Willem Van Loon author and journalist to the effect that the entire population of the world could be lacked into area six Miles Square. An Senate is expected to steal spotlight a headline. More than once in momentous treaty decisions the United states Senate has stolen the spotlight a a few times to the Chagrin and mortification of the nation. During Tho coming months of Congress it will lie scrutinizing new Deal legislation a whether to the embankment of tile administration or not remains to lie seen. As a Rule More conservative than the House it can of a very present help in time of trouble or raise an uproar among the devotees of certain wanted legislation. If you Are an average Normal human being you occasionally May have to make a speech in Public. Sometimes this has to be done extemporaneously. Do you Ever get tangled up on grammar Well Here in a valuable hint from Richard c. Borden in Hia new Book a Public speaking As listeners like a How easy it is to match plural subjects with singular verbs to disrupt the form of a sentence with a shapeless parenthetical remark to leave clauses hanging forlornly in the air a there is one simple Way to keep out of trouble. Use plenty o periods when you feel a sentence is beginning to crumple under you a up in a period. When a dependent clause starts to miss on one of its grammatical cylinders a put in a period. A tse Short sentences and lots of periods and people won t raise their eyebrows Over your just one More thought keep to what you know. Most of us Are to blame either directly or indirectly from our mishaps. They May he the result of mistaken judgment which is excusable for the first time. But we rarely see that the fault is our own. In Tho past 30 years the travellers Aid society has helped More than a million people. It gives Aid to More than 50,000 every year. Yes miss Murray of the travellers Aid society tells me it it very rarely that anyone Ever come to her and says a i m in trouble a and it s All my if we recognize that our ill Luck is our own fault we Are much More Likely to forestall it happening again. Here i an interesting quotation from Walter Duranty s Book entitled a i w rite a i please a and we hich i thought might help some of the readers of this column who have written to me of their ambitions to write one night in Paris Walter Duranty and William Bolitho sat chatting about writing and the newspaper came Bolitho suggested that Duranty write a Book. A any Book Quot he said a provided that it is your Book the Book that conies out of your consciousness and it is not something that you Are writing a you think you ought to write or As someone else wants you to write. The Only books which matter must be written with conviction anti must be True to the people who write them however untrue their truth May be. Look at Elinor Glyn for instance and Harold Bell Wright and the Hull woman who wrote a piece about an Arab Sheik and the Scarlet Pimpernel and All the tripe about the foreign legion from Ouida upwards and downwards. The reason this stuff gets across is that it s True to the people who write it that is the Basic principal. Done to write what they want you to write write what you want write As you want to write Waller Wii Eliell on Hoad was Trad Mark registered copyright Issi. Dally Mirror inc.

An Ash tray was missing and the Cost of it several cents in american Money was going to be taken out of his wages unless Mussolini a representative should make the americans give it up. The Side ordered the Porter to go Hack and mind his bit Sines declared that he would not have the guest of Italy insulted or annoyed and the band struck up a Jolly air. Just As that moment or.
