A in Kofu expansion with no immediate prospects for completion of the local . Building As originally planned the association is giving some thought to an addition to the Plant on Russell Street which would permit the housing of a health club. Such an addition can lie built for $5,000 to $6,000, according to estimates. We would encourage the project suggesting however that More spaciousness be provided at slightly higher Cost than the present plan contemplates. If the experience of other associations in North Carolina can be taken As a guide the health clubs popularity Here can be expected to establish the Inadequacy of the proposed proportions very quickly. Generous space rather than crannies quarters should be planned at the outset for this important addition to the Plant. Several have found an expanded Field of service through organization of health dubs. At a higher than Normal y membership fee electric Baths and the service of masseurs Are supplied. The club has an Appeal to the business and professional prospects in a Community that can be exploited to the advantage of those prospects and the association As Well. Here is an expansion of the local association Plant and service where the service May be expected to finance the expansion and leave a surplus. An investigation of the experiences of the Raleigh and the Greensboro associations would be convincing As to the merits of the proposal. Goose stepping children on May Day hitlers speech today to 135,-000 boys and girls a a Germany is one of the most heavily armed nations of the world today thank thanks to our strength and thanks to our that a the May Day message. It gives Point to the Christian science monitors estimate that a children of the world a generation tragically enslaved to the vengeance Pride and lust of militarism a new aggressions a Are emerging As the real hostages of War in the Modem conquests by threat and by with an estimated Quarter billion youngsters on Earth says that same authority a it is regarded As probable that at least 25 per cent of these Are either drilling to build the forces of aggression. Have lost their families in War or have seen their Homes destroyed or live in nations where the tension of proximity to conflict if not actual War gravely affects their ii vet a \ a recent poll of College campuses in the United states revealed a distinct hatred of War and a Strong resolve on the part of a Large percentage of College youths not to fight under any circumstances in event of War. Of Coulee they will fight when the Call comes but their present sentiment reflects the fundamental desire for peace and International Good will. As we hear the note of the Reich a message to the impressionable Young of Germany we must recognize the contributing causes which our nation might have influenced. For instance if Woodrow Wilson a messages to the German people before the end of the War had really furnished the tone of the peace conference possibly Germany might have been celebrating May Day differently this Day. Finally while Hitler is right in telling German childhood that their nation is a heavily armed a May we not say with some authority in the Light of history that it is not Well armed kindly Germany where children play instead of Goose step scientific Germany where Talent directs energies to save life and artistic Germany where Genius enriches life must be restored before Germany will be Well armed. An Over fed system during the past three years a thorough Survey has been made of North Carolinas 60,000-Raile Road system. The work has been financed largely with Federal Aid funds and the director of the project has it far enough advanced to enable him to make a report to the North Carolina Section of the american society7 of civil engineers last week at Pinehurst. The Survey director James s. Burch called attention in his address to the fact that North Carolina a is the Only state in the Union which has taken care of All its local roads without a Road property tax and without other income than gasoline levies and License he adds a there is a real doubt that under present fiscal policies the condition of the main roads can be kept up to the Standard for Many present fiscal policies include the seizure of Highway funds for general fund purposes the seizure being supported by the slogan a the state owns the roads the roads do not own the this Effort to make the Road system appear a Plethoria creature grown great on the states meat and now unwilling to share the food Supply is a bit pathetic in View of the facts. Take a look at some of those facts As revealed by the United states Bureau of roads Survey to which we referred government of the state at the expense of adequate maintenance of the Road system including support upon which the system May be modernized is an a a appeasement government to use a Well understood term ultimately of heavy Cost. In the news War talk can have a pernicious effect on sensitive youth. A Young Man 17, in los Angeles calif., dreamed that War had come he arose said that he did not want to kill anybody and Sti Nightway went out and hanged himself. A report from London recently said that three persons within five Days committed suicide each after listening to broadcasts on the european situation. The Concord Tribune says a the Coroner in one Case made this comment which competes strongly for All time championship in understatement. A a news is not always happily expressed Over the no not always happily. Yet the news being in itself in the main unhappy what can be done except to face it bravely resolutely and with All the courage we can Muster Day by Day a with. Dale Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people a to indicate the present need for modernization the following facts May be cited of the 4.504 Miles of High Type pavement on the state Highway system. To Lier cent Are More than 15 years old and 69 per cent Are More than to years old. Road life studies indicate an average life of from about 13 to 18 years for these older pavements. A taking All a All weather roads into consideration we find 21 per cent Are too narrow for modern traffic. This mileage is Only 16 feet wide. Trucks Are eight feet wide. A of the pavements Only 27 per cent Are Tot narrow. On the entire state Highway system we have 1.304 narrow Bridges no wider than 18 feet and the aggregate length of these Bridges is 29 Miles. A on highways which carry More than 1.000 vehicles per Day we find that 12 per cent Are no wider than 16 Fet. There is a Sharp curve every 2.26 Miles and this mileage includes very few Mountain roads. A Blind spot of insufficient sight occurs on an average of every half mile. We found 467 Bridges no wider than 20 feet with an aggregate narrow Bridge length of 16.2 Miles. A on the county system of some 17,-900 Miles Only 1,520 Miles or 3 per cent have All weather surfacing. A the remaining 46,350 Miles of dirt gravel and soil roads with their Bridges require constant maintenance and frequent betterment to provide summer and Winter Road service for school buses Rural mail and general you la remember i wrote i wanted to get a collection of mottoes which have been of the most help to you readers and that i would $2.

Hts feet had been so badly Frozen that ulcers had appeared. His men knew he would never March again. But Admiral Peary knew he would. Nothing could conquer that indomitable spirit. His men carried him in and placed him on a hide Little cot up then4 in that Barren North land. The wind howled the storm heat and torn at the Little wooden building which Shook and trembled. But it was a shelter. In a few Days Admiral Peary was Able to sit up. He called for a Pencil and a stub of a Pencil was found. He took it and wrote on the Wall a to find a Way or make Well he made one the condition of his feet improved. No amputation was necessary and eventually he again Sot out on his quest. This time he won he was tile first Man in the world to reach that coveted goal the North pole the third selection is from Hardin Sabo stenographer to Deputy commissioner Edward Corsi of the department of welfare.

The group which endorses the Roosevelt policy of sup porting the euro Pean democracies i and wants to see Thi in a a a a a neutrality Law Modi in Iii. Tied thinks that a Brae Pattee european War May come at any moment. Its at tude is Best summed up perhaps by the testimony which Raymond Leslie Buell of the foreign policy association gave the other Day lie fore the Senate foreign relations committee. For. And against briefly or Buell argued like this the neutrality Law hurts France and England More than it does Germany hence makes their defeat in War More Likely. Germany and Italy Are hungry and have big ideas. If they beat France and England the Day when they would actively muscle in on american preserves is brought that much nearer. Hence it is to our interest to support France and England by a measures Short of War the moves we have made to Date have almost certainly averted a general War in Europe. The opposition argument is Well presented by Frederick j. Libby head of the National Council for the prevention of War. It goes like this neither Hitler nor Mussolini wants to fight neither wants a world domination a and neither is Likely to encroach on our preserves. They Are putting pressure on France and England for certain concessions which will have to be made eventually. The Only danger in the situation is the Chance that by giving France and England our backing we May encourage them to fight. So there you have it. Each Side sees the world situation in a completely different Light. One Side thinks that Roosevelt is helping to Axer a world War the other thinks he is Only making it More Likely. Speaking of foreign affairs. For background to today a news go to your Library and study the newspaper files for april 1919. Just 20 years ago. The Versailles peace conference was on at that time. Italy was demanding world War loot in the shape of territory across the Adriatic. The reparations committee was suggesting 45 billions As the sum Germany could properly he asked to . The bolsheviks were in control in Hungary and also in Munich socialists and non social Tets were fighting in italian Industrial cities. Woodrow Wilson was promising France american Aid in Case of a new War with Germany. Japan was being eased out of her claims to the Shantung Peninsula in China. A meat famine was reported in Berlin. The German delegation coining to Versailles to sign the peace treaty was stoned by the populace. And at the end of the month an american correspondent writing about Wilson s efforts at the conference closed his dispatch with these words a the Hope of a grand peace that would stamp out militarism and end War has been fading from the hearts of the people. The president has been surrounded by influences that operated against anything in the Way of heroic it w Ould have taken the seventh son of a seventh son to see 1939, Back in those Days.

Now however a series of disks entitled Quot United states government reports is being prepared by the National emergency Council.
