More about Churchill warns continued from Page one to a Hitler and the nazi German a it is no Paft of our policy to seek War with he said. Asserting a fall is quiet on the Western front and today also thus far nothing has happened on the sea or in the air a he went on a but More than a million German soldiers including nearly All their Active divisions and armoured divisions Are drawn up ready to strike at an hours notice All along the frontiers of Luxembourg. Holland. And Belgium. A at any moment those Neutral countries May be subjected to an Avalanche of steel and fire and the decision rests in the hands of a haunted morbid being who to their eternal shame the German people in their bewilderment have worshipped As a god. A that is the situation in Europe tonight. A and can anyone wonder that we Are determined to bring such a hideous state of alarm and menace to an end As soon As May be for once and for All Quot tot Hes polish a to he touched on the Fate of Poland recalling his inspection of a polish destroyer recently one of those which escaped through the North sea and is attached to the British Navy. A i comforted Churchill declared a with the thought that when these polish sailors have finished their work with the British Navy we will take particular care that they once More have a Home to go he said the finnish War had a exposed to the w Hole world the ravages which communism makes upon the Fibre of any nation which Falls victim to that deadly mental and moral turning to the suffering of neutrals. Churchill asserted that 200 Neutral ships had been destroyed and nearly 1.000 Neutral seamen j a slaughtered in hitlers frantic Endeavor to terrorize All w to seek i to Trade with Britain. A. Only yesterday while our sailors were carrying on stretchers eight emaciated dutchmen they had rescued after six Days j in an open boat a dutch flier in strict neutrality was shooting1 Down an English flier. Mon it Roch pow or a Maud this Germany is the monstrous Power which even the very neutrals who Are suffering most Are forced to Supply with a Means of future his direct reference to intent self Catlon of the War was a it seems to me that intensification of the struggle is to to expected and we certainly Are by no Means inclined to shrink from he alluded to the Power of the Allied fleets by alerting that Only one in 800 ships which have taken advantage of British and French convoys has been sunk. Britain has sympathy with neutrals. He went on a but when we j Are asked to take As a matter of course interpretations of neutrality which give All the advantages to the aggressor and inflict All the disadvantages on the defenders of Freedom i recall a saying of the a late lord Balfour a this is a singularly ill contrived world but not j so ill contrived As that a no reason for Rushia he said there was no reason for j Russia to come into the War a unless upon the promptings of and obsolete imperialistic ambition she1 wishes to do so of her own vol j Hon and of malice Propene and throw her weight upon the Side of the enemy. A your affair is with Hitler Aud the nazi Oer Tau Power. There is the head and forefront of the offending Power and it is there Aud there alone that we seek to Britain did not know when the War started he Aid a that ital w Ould not be our enemy and we could not be sure that Japan would not be our enemy Many Peoples had Hopes that Russia would re enter the comity of nations and help shield working Folk All Over the world. A but none of these things bad or Good has happened Quot w a i Mth eked he declared the British had not i tried to conceal from themselves the terrible Side of War but were convinced that Quot our resources and our manpower once developed match those of the As Churchill spoke informed More about j Germany promises continued from in Efge one White Book was a cheap Complete digest they also let German newspapers have a Complete digest of editorial comment and news reports from the United states with the result that the afternoon press blazed with american reaction to the documents. The for instance had the ban Nerline a America tremendous impression of War guilt bullitt s name was featured by More than one paper. Just when the a Vintage stuff Quot is coining was not disclosed. Officials shrugged their shoulders when asked and said a it takes time to sift and translate everything. A a it was obvious however that they had the next Batch of diplomatic ammunition ready for firing. The officials hunted foreign correspondents to inspect the a original documents a found in Warsaw. Those reports attributed to count Jerzy Potocki polish ambassador to Washington were signed a a map a under which were the words in French a paper a Lettres Quot letter or Rostand under that the word reports attributed to the polish missions in Lon Don Aud Paris were on paper of american or British make. All the documents bore various official signatures til Varico lored pencils and were underscored in places Aud liberally annotated. Less attention was paid in general Here today to last night s speech of soviet Premier Yach i Slaff Zolotoff. Galled Hati fac Tok y this was described officially As a satisfactory a yet it left open j one question of the greatest Eon eel to German diplomacy a How about Russia unequivocally synchronizing her policies especially i in the Balkans with Italy s As i Well As Germany so while Germany appears to he satisfied with the russian stand insofar As Russo German rela a Lions Are concerned it is believed in informed quarters that j Mussolini wanted something More j definite As a basis for a tripartite joint policy for the duration of the present War. At least however informed germans believed Zolotoff s statements were tantamount to an Assurance that All would remain quiet in the Balkans. Zolotoff speaking before the supreme soviet said Russia had never raised the question of recovering Bessarabia from re mania by Force of arms although it had never recognized Rumania Possession of that pro Vince. Hence he added. A there j Are no grounds for any deter Ora Hon in soviet rumanian Vela he was however some-1 what Sharp in his recollection of the disappearance of the so j Viet Diplomat Butenko in re j mania in 1938, and warned ru-1 mania this must not happen again. Moreover. Zolotoff recalled that Italy sent air planes to Fin land to be used against Russia j and spoke bitingly of Britain a j failure to try to prevent the italian invasion of Albania a j year ago.

Editor the Enterprise so the so called a citizens committee a a comprised of the real estate Bah Rdse leading members has a petition and their petitions contains 900 rallies so what does 900 names in a City of approximately 50.000 inhabitants necessarily signify that the majority is against Low Cost housing it most certainly does not i quite agree with or. Lawrence Seton Ross who says he can get 900 names on a petition to do anything. Kure in a City the size of High Point its no trouble at All to find that Many people who will write their names on anything that so showed under their Only a few Days ago while attending a social gathering in the City i observed one of the men getting up a petition to parole a convict who was then serving his sentence. Most every one that he showed it to remarked that they did not know the fellow or anything about him never the less they invariably signed the petition. And with names that easily acquired the a a citizens committee Only got 900. Us bet if the members of the housing authority should Start out with a petition supporting the proposed project they could get 9000 signers in nine hours and work Only half the City. Who but the real estate Board could object to allowing the Federal government to spend $1,-500,000 in the City in what Way could this Money spent in construction of Low rent modern and Beautiful housing units do enough harm to offset the Good it would do. In the first place High Point Nee it is More housing facilities so that some of the unfortunate families can move out of the Rotten Down a a shacks and discarded commercial buildings in which they now live and pay High rent on. I for one would like to see All those dilapidated a stumbled Down Homes a stand empty until something is done to improve their livability. Furthermore. High Point needs the employment that the project would by ing to the City needs it More at the present time than it has during the past few years As employment in steadily dropping off. Not Only would the project itself provide a stimulus to employment but private construction would consume much of the Citso unemployed inasmuch As the owners of the a shacks Quot that would be vacated in favor of the new houses. Would be forced to repair their houses before they could fill them with new tenants. Why is it that High Point must Battle heavy opposition in everything that is proposed. The hydroelectric project is now almost forgotten. But i Hope this idea does t fad out likewise. We read in most any newspaper that we choose to pick up of new projects and Industrial plants that the surrounding cities Are getting but How Long has it been since a new. Major Industry came to High Point without new industries our City cannot continue to thrive and without a greater Effort being put Forth by our municipal government in the Way of improving conditions and appearances of the City. We cannot expect to attract new industries. The proposed i s h a Slung clearance project would be a major step in that direction. By All Means let us have the Low Cost houses because the City needs it and the Cut tens want it a All but a Small group of real estate business men whose Only interest in keeping the project out of the City is their own selfish personal gain and 900 a petition signers Quot who Are none too particular about where they write their names.

More about More about Turkey opens census takers continued from Pago one continued front pug one told the Sofia newspaper Slovon that Turkey would a let herself be forced to prevent British warships from crossing the strategic Dardanelle vitally interested As a Black sea nation Bulgaria is vitally interested in this possibility. Turkey might satisfy formalities. Other persons indicated by voicing a protest against passage of the Allied warships and having this protest a duly filed in the archives of the league of be moment stated flatly that Turkey would give the Green Light to the Allied warship a so that these ships can control the tray res Fie of War supplies from russian ports to if the Black sea blockade becomes reality diplomats Here predicted. Russia s non German Trade will be scrupulously respected. Soviet Premier foreign minister Zolotoff s reiteration yesterday of Russia s non belligerency was regarded in some quarters Here As a promising sign for any Allied blockade in the Black sea. A Lues will be free in the event Russia remains out of the european War which Zolotoff emphasized she will do. The allies will be free from the danger of attack from Black sea coasts unless Germany herself pushes through the Balkans in that Case the British French armies assembled in the near East estimated As High As 500,-000 men. Can Start operations. Started in i 7po this Large scale nose counting business started under president Washington in 1790 and has been repeated every to years. The Constitution ordered it to five each state its proper share in the House of representatives i under the 1790 census which counted 3.929.21 4 persons the then 17 states were apportioned too seats in the House. The population per District has increased since then so that the 4s states in 1930 shared 135 eats. It used to lie the custom to increase the number of representatives each to years so that no state would lose a rep native but 435 hats been Standard now since the 1910 census. Congress can do anything it wants to next year about reapportionment including doing nothing which happened after the 1920 census. Eves on unemployed next to the population total the figure most sought in the census will be count of the unemployment the first such tabulation in history. This figure May be the basis of far reaching legislation in the future.

So called partisan politics has our citizenry divided into two clans one designated As demo Erat the other republicans each j opposed to nearly everything the other favors. The City s comeback cannot fully accomplish while we Are divided into two foolish fighting political Camps. Basic partisan to i lit is Are the principles that provide us with National and International charts pointing the Way the respective political parties propose to Lead us. Since our City government makes no Laws respecting High or Low tariffs no Trade agreements with foreign governments nor controls the coinage of Money it does not make sense to say we Are doing a partisan politics Job As written into our present City charter. City charter Sec. 4. Provides that elective offices Are for citizen who claim to be of any political party officially recognized in the state. That amounts to a candidate stating he or she is a Democrat or a Republican. Do you wish to be a candidate it is quite simple say you Are a Democrat or a Republican pay 85.00 registration tee and you Are a full fledged candidate for Council or mayor if you prefer. Not so Long ago a Man who cannot read or write met these requirements on the other hand if senator Norris was a High Point citizen he could not qualify because he is Independent of partisan politics. We might adopt some other setup that would cause less friction and fit in much better with our local environment. Instead of Democrat substitute for Republican a candidate deposits his $5.00. States his preference for one of the designate because the haunch and Venison. Oldest inn in Salisbury.

Thou arc no better than a certain a s. Senator who declines to affiliate with Auy political this plan would eliminate our prevailing party hatreds and the boys from both Camps could assemble jointly on Street Corners and sing a Sweet ado line Quot we Hope this satire will help you More clearly see that partisan politics has no place or part in our local problems. Partisan politics holds out to every City employee Tho haunting fear that the next local election May remove him from his or her Job. The answer to what we should do about it is this through out next representatives ask the legislature to eliminate Alt partisan politics from our City Charley we can speak collectively through our chamber of Commerce. The present City Council has an excellent Opportunity to regain lost prestige by official endorsement of this urgent Reform. Very truly yours.
