June 8, 1940. Like even terms the fighting planes of an enemy would be a great insurance of National Power and of National integrity. This Man who has been clubbed heavily by government during the past few years remains despite his advanced age one of the company of producers upon which the nation would lean heavily of necessity in time of military crisis. To an extent never known before the weapon makers loom importantly when War starts. The weapon makers assume portentous shapes which serve practically to Dwarf the weapon bearers. The cry from the allies is for planes and tanks rather than for men at the present time. The forces driving almost irresistibly against Paris Are mechanized forces. These armoured divisions no longer Are composed of some to too men. They Are made up of about 11,000 men and the principal Power in them is derived from the machines with which the men Are armed. O Jhai uht bul i a unto you love your enemies bless them that curse you. Do Good to them that hate you and Pray for them which despite fully use you and persecute 5 44. A merely fallen enemy May Rise again but the reconciled one is truly vanquished. A Schiller. The protest among University Tiu Stees to he outbreak of criticism in the meeting yesterday of the trustees of the University of North Carolina against some of the manifestations of the institutions a a liberalism probably was not due to the personal discomforts of a Day of extreme heat. A quite genuine concern exists among conservatives in the state about the atmosphere and spirit of Chapel Hill generally but Wasny to much of yesterdays criticism directed to something less important but possibly More offensive than a atmosphere and spirit a Thurmond Chatham specifically denounced the political activities of or. Ralph Mcdonald assistant director of University Extension work while John Sprunt Hill of Durham spoke out against a liberalism gone the one had a special complaint the other a general one. Or. Frank Graham who declared that while he remained president the University is a a going to be open and free should bewail lest he preserve the Freedom of a few members of his faculty at the expense of squelching his trustees. The Cavalier dismissal of complaints such As that of Chatham pointedly charging that a political figure taken hot from the hustings is subverting his office to continuation of , self exploiting political activities is not in the interest of an a open and free institution. Similar charges against individuals holding definitely it political appointments stir the state and inspire Calls for investigation. Or. Graham cannot make himself or the University appear a stubborn fortress of Freedom and truth by holding in off act that there must lie no suggestion of rules or regulations bearing upon faculty to come out of his Board of trustee s. Challenging Ford to Mare Good England has been intrigued by the Henry hold boast that the Ford organization let alone by governmental agents and Given the assistance of a couple of first class flying men can be ready in six months the turn out standardized lighting planes at the rate of 1,000 daily. Washington also has manifested interest in the statement. Ford is not Given to bragging about what he an do. His record of achievement Speaks for him. He has Laid out a great task for himself in this instance but who is willing to say positively that he cannot perform it the government is turning Over to him a Pursuit plane for study and it May to that the Detroit manufacturer is to be challenged to make Good. Such production of planes that could be Glt Ilford a guest Fok the Dav the Young Man who came to Guilford county today As the Honor guest of the republicans May he the next president of the United states. His chances seem slim at present but the one certain thing about politics is uncertainty. That a Why we have enthusiastic campaigns and elections. We do not expect the republicans to nominate Thomas e. Dewey if they think their chances of electing a president Are Good. Those chances Are Likely to be dotted up carefully about Conven ton time and if they seem on the Short Side the new yorker with the demonstrated popular Appeal May be chosen to Lead a forlorn Hope. He is not the Type the old line Republican would want in office certainly he is not the Type upon which Southern republicans have conferred their favor. Senator Taft would be much More attractive to the . Of the South. Vandenberg would please More of the membership than would Dewey but the Young Man has a following w hich might be calculated to cause some embarrassment to democrats expecting Victory and he May be used in such a a Shock troop capacity. But we repeat that such Are the uncertainties of politics the county May lie Host today to next president. Men in our entire regular army. We could not keep our planes in the air even if we abandoned every other measure of Protection. We believe that such a system of service ought to be introduced As an emergency measure to be abandoned if and when the present danger has passed. We believe that it should be so drafted As to provide training not Only for Young men. But for older men As Well. We believe that it should be accompanied by a Well considered but drastic kind of taxation designed to prevent a single Penny of excess profit from accruing to those manufacturers who fill our governments defense orders. This a time for Universal service. If it be said that this is an election year that politicians must be wary and that Congress is not yet in a mood for straightforward action of this kind let Congress go to the american people and let it ask them whether they Are not ready to defend against All possible risks and All possible challengers the Only Way of life which they believe to be Worth living. With Dole Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people travelogue amp so we say Coop by to the Are we to adopt total militarism Many europeans sought America As Sanctuary from compulsory military service. Some of our Best citizens Are first and second generations of germans who left their fatherland because of a distaste for militarism. This week the new York times editorially advocated Universal military service for american Young men and the president of the United states in a press conference gave a measure of his approval to the editorial. The following Are excerpts from the times on this subject the time has come when in the interest of self Protection the american people should at once adopt a National system of Universal compulsory military training we say this As a newspaper which has never been believed in the Wisdom of such a policy in time of peace. Vav e say it because the logic of events drives us remorselessly to this conclusion. The most powerful mechanized army that the world has Ever seen is now striking at Paris. We must consider realistically the consequences of that army a Victory. If we Are not to he caught without warning we must u face in All frankness the worst that can possibly happen. That worst is France Defeated and knocked out of the War England in no position to defend herself in 1940 owing to the loss of her supplies in Flanders Hitler becoming the master of All Europe. Either in Possession of the British Fleet or in Possession of shipbuilding facilities which Are Many times our own. In Germany Norway Belgium Britain Holland. We Hope that these things will not happen but we Are bound to recognize that the Chance of their happening is great. We must recognize that Hitler has always shown an Over vaulting ambition great daring and an amazing sense of timing. We have no possible alternative but to take advantage of such time As is Given us to strengthen our defences. Congress has taken the first necessary step by appropriating funds for the acquisition of Materiel but Materiel is of no value without men who Are trained to use it. We talk of an air defense of fifty thousand planes such a defens would require a ground a solicitor for Magazine subscriptions was tired out. It had been a Long Day he was weary. He was trying to build circulation for a Magazine published in Indianapolis called a the Ile stood in front of in office and thought of a dozen reasons Why he should not go in and make another canvass today. Quot feet tired he had done enough work for one Day wanted to get Back to his but he had a working principle which was Quot make one More he stood there debating with himself and finally he marched in. That decision to make one More Effort when he was tired and discouraged changed his life and made him a Rich Man. The name of that Young Magazine subscription solicitor was Arthur f. Hall. The Man he called on was local manager of the equitable life Assurance society. In his presence Arthurf Hall talked with enthusiasm about the Magazine he represented. He saw that the Prospect was interested and he added More fire to his claims for his Magazine. The tiredness and discouragement he had experienced when he had stood hesitating in front of the insurance managers door slipped away. When he had finished his talk. The manager said. A a i like your enthusiasm and ill subscribe. But there is something else i want to talk to you about. Any Man who can make such a Good sales talk for a Magazine subscription can do bigger things i a ant you to join my Force and sell life insurance for Young Arthur f. Hall was surprised but he looked into it he was so impressed that he became a life insurance Salesman. And in Selling insurance he followed the same methods he had applied in soliciting Magazine subscriptions he could Endeavor to make one More canvass although he might be tired and discouraged just one More try. Business began to come his Way. Ile became a crack Salesman and All on the simple theory of Quot make one More a of unsuccessful organizers of a life insurance company in fort Wayne. Indiana could not secure the 250 applications for $5,000 each of insurance and soil $100,000 of Stock both of which were necessary under the Law before a charter and License would be issued they heard of Hall and hired him to Complete the Job. He did it in six weeks and so the Lincoln National Lite insurance company was launched. Hall was elected Secretary and manager at the age of 32. Now 35 years later he is chairman of the Board and the company has Over a billion dollars of life in Quot make just one More Quot make just one More what magic there is in those words what wonders can be accomplished by the application of the idea. Done to give up just because you arc tired or discouraged. Open that door walk in. Talk to your Man. It changed the life of Arthur f. Hall. It May do the Ami for you.

June 8 your reporter learns that wakes Raleigh senator l. Y. Ballerine has ambitions to be president pro tem of the 1941 Senate. Previously this Bureau had heard and reported that John d. Larkin of Jones and Archie c. Gay of Northampton Are in the Field for the place. It appears there will not be quite so Many Long term senators from the East in the next general Assembly As in some former ones although very few of those coming to Raleigh next january will he political or legislative debutantes. If sentiment expressed almost unanimously in Raleigh by important political figures is typical of North Carolinas feelings on the subject it would take very Little to lint the state up solidly for Active energetic Aid to allies extending All the Way to sending troops even. The decision of Federal authorities to ask bids on men of Quot concessions Quot on Ridge Parkway docs not n much favor in state his Mission circles where the eral feeling that ther stretches of the Parkway in North Carolina Lonj make any possible.

A voice president James d. Mooney of general motors. In new Jersey a lawyer who does not believe in god does not practice Law and a Man who does not believe in god should not lie permitted to hold office or run for Thomas Brown Hudson county circuit court new Jersey. One often wonders if this political Campaign and convention thing had been done away with but it usually turns up on about Page six. Now that the allies Are through juggling prime ministers and generals maybe they can buckle Down to this business of waging War. In Germany ii is a Man an there to be one. Crime to Call a and also Over there Are numerous slate roads crossing the Parkway with tar heels ready and willing to give gasoline hot dog and other service and Highway commission authorities were rather counting on their getting the advantages of the Parkway Trade.

At length they worked out their answers and brought them to Edison who after checking them Over exclaimed. Quot i am sorry gentlemen but you Are All and then he proceeded to explain the simple method he had employed to find the Correct answer. The ingenious inventor had devised a series of tin cubes forming a nest each but slightly smaller than the one enclosing it. He had then filled a bulb with water and poured it from one cube to another until he found one which precisely accommodated the contents the inside measurements of that cube provided the required science Monitor.
