One murder makes a villian Milos a hero numbers Sanctify the . 045 deaths from motor vehicle accidents in North Carolina. It is interesting to note the distribution of deaths by Days of the week. Sunday was the most dangerous Day with 215 accidents and saturday ranked closely behind with 186 fatal accidents Friday was next with 107 monday 101 tuesday 90 thursday 88 and wednesday 83 deaths from motor vehicle accidents. There were 173 fatal accidents not distributed by the Days of the week. The distribution of accidents by Days closely correlates with the volume of travel on the different Days of the week. It is almost three times As dangerous to travel on sunday As it is on wednesday. It May be that there is three times As much mileage covered on sunday. Practically every week end in the High Point area brings its toll of motor cars accidents. That there Are not More fatalities is surprising. It May be that safety campaigns have at least reduced Speed within City limits. The toll of fatalities in the state is far too Large. If a Cyclone wiped out the lives of 900 persons in North Carolina it would be considered a major disaster. Surely the a facts of god in fatalities Are being surpassed by the foolish acts of men. Eternal vigilance still remains the Price of safety. Ton. Ile has said unequivocally that he has no relations with the gambling device but that he did help the honorable and useful vending machine. That is a statement easily verifiable. Under the circumstances assuming that the accused is not guilty of the desperate futility of denying the record May we not conclude that anyone who keeps the report going that he did represent the gambling end of the Slot machine business lies under the urgent necessity of justifying his course with a a Dale.

Vic by Here doubtless would turn e tide of British criticism of the duct of the War and convert e sour commons tomorrow into cheering mass Back of the gov rement. But the report today is that no Ich Quick Victory is to be extort. The Progress of the drive n the Small City is slow and ays must elapse before definite in in the affair. This Means at the reinforcements Hitler surprisingly has ordered North Ard through 200 Miles of Moun Nous country might reach Nar in in time to be of assistance to e Garrison.

Doubtless the Shock of open Talian predictions of a German Vasion of England will stir the British to a study of their present predicament Hor nearly a thous and years now no successful invasion of the tight Little Island As been consummated.

Dangerous in this Tate on highways student in the University of North Carolina in the tews letter alter tabulating a i h rates from motor cars in 938, throughout the Union cements As follows it is still much More dangerous to rive a car in North Carolina than in by of the states except six. It is considerably More dangerous than the United states average of one fatal Accident for every 605.000 Gallons of gasoline consumed. North Carolina is reported to have had 910 fatal accidents from motor vehicles in 1938. This was an improvement Over the year 1937 when there a Ere 1,045 fatal accidents and also in improvement Over the year 1936 with 979 fatal accidents especially alien it is noted that there were far More automobile registered in 1938 than in any previous year. If reduced to a registered motor car basis North Carolina had one fatal Accident to very 590 registered cars. If the states were ranked on this basis North Caroga would stand forty third or one position lower than she ranks on the a Asis of gasoline consumed per death. It is interesting to note that practically All of the Southern states rank in favourably in that table. Just Why i is More dangerous to drive an Auxin Obi to in the South than in any a ther Region of the United states we ire not prepared to answer. It is genially claimed that Speed is the main Tause of motor car accidents and Leat is. If this is True we have at ast discovered one phase of Southern Ife which is not slow. However it could pay us to reduce our Speed in his particular instance. During the year 1937 to it it were 1, we Are opposed to invading Greensboro we approach interpretation of the reports from the Guilford front with a deep consciousness of their complexities but we judge by the papers that Greensboro has halted at the City limits at least the March of the High Point and Rural nazis of polities who were threatening to take Over the county capitals City Hall. Greensboro seemed to be fearful of losing her Freedom and her prize form of government. The existence of that fear shows How Apt we Are in this Day of quaking and shaking democracies to see a dictator behind every Bush a and maybe there is one behind every Bush. The fact that we knew of no local design on Greensboro a City Hall does no to mean there was none. We confessed our Inadequacy in seeing through All that is happening in Guilford politics at the outset of this fleeting reference to saturdays precinct meetings. And the reference is to those meetings. The question of which Side won saturdays battling in the test of strength Between the ousted chairman of the democratic committee and his adherents and those who were trying to support the new chairman remains to be decided As we understand it. Wha lever , we Trust that our first impression that our neighbor City has repelled invaders will not prove to in unfounded. We want to come out flatly in our role of neighbourly neutrality As opposed to any High Point plan for taking Over Greensboro and furnishing her with a totalitarian Are in favor even of autonomy for Jamestown. Regardless of our great political Power Over Here Power exercised we have been told by the Quick and the dead a and limited Only by the cancellation of the right of Absentee voting we take our stand firmly behind the proposition that Little Peoples should be free. Recently i passed through a town where i saw a forty million Dollar Monument to a former peddle the town is Durham North Carolina. The Monument is Duke University a co educational College comprising a magnificent group of Stone buildings equipped with All modern facilities and surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds. On the Campus is a standing Monument to this former tobacco peddle in the form of a statue of the peddle himself James Buchanan Duke. An object that caught my Eye was a half smoked Cigar he is hiding in his left hand James Buchanan Duke was one of two Motherless sons of an old Confederate Soldier who when the civil War was Over faced the future with on it a pair of Blind mules fifty cents in Silver which he had received from a Union Soldier in Exchange for a worthless Confederate note and a Field of Green tobacco the tobacco being All that was left on land which had been stripped Bare by hungry soldiers. But this Green tobacco was the nucleus of a Fortune from which later on thousands of boys and girls were to Benefit in the Way of an education. Buck Duke died Worth one Hundred and one million dollars yet he never went to school but five years. He once said Quot a College education is All right for preachers and lawyers but what use would it he to me Superior brain Ait not necessary in he i w ent on to give his reasons for i Success As follow Quot i have succeeded in Busine not because i have More natural ability than Many others who have not succeeded but because i have applied myself harder and stuck to it. I know plenty of people with More brains than i have who have failed but they lacked application and yet curiously enough this Man who expressed himself As not needing Book learning and who proved it so far As business Success foes gave forty million dollars to help Young men and women acquire an education. He must have Felt the need somewhere along the line hts Only child. Doris Duke now mrs. James Cromwell whote husband James Cromwell is now the american ambassador to Canada is a trustee of the University Buck Duke came to appreciate the fact that Money and Money alone meant nothing. In the one and Only interview he Ever gave to the newspapers in ail i life a reporter asked a emr. Duke is there any satisfaction in just having a million dollars a or. Duke gave his head a decisive Jerk and answered Quot new not a danged so he planned to provide an education As an adjunct to the business and professional Success of other Young people. This Wie old Man had Learned that Only when Money is coupled with education and Wise living will it bring the real Success for which we Are All striving and he knew that Only through helping others to help themselves can we perform any real and lasting service.

Loans and Grants made to and in the states and territories since the Start of 1934, covering everything from farm benefits to Relief High ways Public works and old age benefits total just a Little More than $42,000,-000,000. From Only six states did the government collect More in taxes than it paid out in Loans and Grant. In four states it distributed More Money than the total assessed value of taxable property. Of the $42,000,000,000 it sent out nearly 27 were in the Komi of outright Grants the rest made up of Loans is presumably anyhow mostly recoverable.

Currently says Fua it lasses on foreclosures Are averaging Only 16-100 of one per cent. The insurance fund that covers Losse is building up nicely and is figured capable of standing losses running As High Asio per cent. General opinion is that Kha is plenty Safe a unless another 1932 omes along. In �?T32, it is recalled private lenders got stuck with oodles of Ira estate on which they a loaned up to 50 per cent.
