An Accord Hern Moscow and Berlin might Ive the yellow Man out on a la. But what Are moral Obliga is to a blood inspired nordic a rampage. Riniti is Celebration a he Hue rain of la could impair the Celebration at Unity High school importantly. It Community and the school fees particularly were resolve that the Centennial of the be s Dei a Ion to education it uld lie memorable and the Temprise congratulates them on Celebration. Juite properly the governor hired the occasion by being sent and making the address la \ a his kind of Centennial which Unity celebrates ought to be pin sized More among civilized it Ples. We have been inclined to go our celebrations and to Al our eloquence to flow on is where some Patriot risked ave his life in armed defense i his country or his country a principles and purposes. That kind of service lends itself better to dramatization than that of the site of a Hundred years of steady work in education but who will say it is the More important service the dignity of work Only the Man who is competent or has been competent As a Mechanic understands fully the deep satisfaction which comes of that condition. True the Man who works ably with his hands in some mechanical Field of service May look longingly at a different kind of employment but he does know the pleasure of definite Concrete accomplishment. We Are reminded of this theory by the current response of the sex Mechanic president of general motors to an editorial inquiry As to Quot what he would do for a living if he were 21 years old the american Magazine asked the question in Pursuit of its purpose to be helpful to puzzled Young men starting out to make a living. President William s. Knudsen a answer is Superior to the average commencement address and he preaches a truth which reasonably Well educated Young Southern men particularly need to learn. We think his reasoning Well Worth the space we Accord the following excerpt from his answer to the editor a j would try to get work in a machine shop. If that failed i would try for a Job in a filling station or As an apprentice to an electrician or a plumber or As a clerk behind a counter or As an errand boy Quot i would try to get some work to do with my hands. I have been More or less a Mechanic since i was sixteen. In my Early Days in a bicycle Plant. I went to a technical school at night. A nowadays in America youngsters want a College education. That is All right. I would probably want one too. But i would to if i knew what i know now. Let the College education interfere with my practical education As a Mechanic. A last summer i talked a Good Ileal w till some Young College seniors. They All seemed worried about How they would get their Start in life. I suggested that they go out and try to get a Job working with their hands filling station factory store machine shop. They thought i was joking a now these were pretty Good average. Decent intelligent Young americans. The tact that they feared to go to work with hum hands indicate there is something wrong with our system of training. A of the hundreds of thousands of Young men graduated from College every year. The larger proportion seem to have one ambition to sit at a desk. A there is nothing Humble about the position of a Mechanic. Even with All our unemployment the top rank skilled Mechanic is still the most sought after Man you can find. The Genius of America is production and a Large let percentage of our productive enterprises Are headed by men who have come up from the workers Bench. A Why is it then that so Many of our youngsters today want to Start their careers sitting at a desk with no More manual and practical skill than to operate a Telephone they Arentt weak on an average they Are stronger and healthier Thun we Are. Why then their dread of manual labor ? a the pioneers were men of Little education. So were the immigrants. Consequently there grew up in America a great reverence for Hook learning. From this came Many Good tilings. It provided the urge for Universal education in America. A but maybe we have gone a Little too far in our reverence for Book learning maybe in our concentration on that we have forgotten other tilings which Are just As important. That is. The knowledge of How to work with our hands How to create with practical skill. A i am not belittling education. What i am trying to say is that a person educated entirely through Book i Only half educated. There is a kind of practical knowledge and Good sense which can flow into the brain Only through the use of the Drakes ship possibly our award of the Palm for the Best press Gentry in North Carolina is to Ben Dixon Macneill who does most of his writing now for the news and observer from Manteo. His present interest arousing publicity is devoted to description of Ami speculation about an ancient ships Hull which a storm has uncovered on the outer Banks near Oregon Inlet Southeast of Roanoke Island. It is not surprising in View of or. Macneilly a writing about it that thousands of people Are flocking to the a pee for personal inspection of the find. The questions As to what kind of a ship the find was originally and As to its age have not been answered except in the fascinating imaginings of the reporter. The latest suggestion with excellent support of course is that the vessel was a War vessel which sir Walter Raleigh designed for England. Why not explore or exploit at least the possibility that it is the sir Francis Drake vessel driven ashore during a great storm and wrecked the night after the famous harrier of the Spanish main had agreed to lend the lost colonists one from his Fleet to take them to England that would surround the find with new Glamor and it might help dispose of the recent claim from markers Island that it and not Roanoke was the site of the first Colony. With Dale Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people a Young reporter on the grand Forks North Dakota Herald wanted to get ahead to make More Mono. Than the newspaper was Able to pay him. The town was Small the paper was Small his salary was Small. How was he Ever going to make More Money ? his name was Douglas e. Lurton he hit on an idea which changed his whole life. This idea was so simple so sound so True that anybody might employ it. This was the idea the Way to get ahead is to create something new that is needed. That s All. Just thirteen words. He realized that the people who made the big Money were not the people who did routine work. They were the ones who thought up something new contributed something to business. Or to the world that it had not had before. He decided to originate something new himself. But what that was the question. The thing he knew most about was reporting and publishing. But the Chance to originate something new in publishing in grand Forks. North Dakota. Looked pretty thin. But Doug Lurton did t see it that Way. He saw a Chance. He determined to learn More about reporting and publishing and moved to Minneapolis where he got a Job on a the Minneapolis daily All the time he was developing his idea. Studying the idea. Reading up on it. Making notes. But where he was going to present it he did not know. But the idea seemed sound. Someday he would find the right Man to put it before sex a. His specific and Concrete working out of his general idea was this that Jample would be interested in a pocket size Magazine which helped them with their daily problem. That is How to get a Job. How to go to sleep if you suffer from insomnia How to cure an inferiority Complex. That Sall there was to it. Completely simple. He told people about it. They laughed. The idea was too simple. Somebody must have thought of it before anyway. But he kept on. Studying Reading developing the idea. When a the literary digest failed his inspiration a Horn. A now is the time to present my idea. They will probably want a Magazine. I la take my idea to he armed himself with ammunition. Got facts and everything available and went in to see Wilfred j. Funk. He talked with enthusiasm and conviction in exactly thirty minutes or. Funk said yes. They Shook hands. The Deal was made. He had worked All these years for that half hour. But it was Worth it. This was in april. The first Issue of the Magazine was on the Newsstands in october. It takes the average new Magazine three years to break even. This Magazine made Money on the first number. Its title is a your can you do what Dong Lurton did originate a new idea give the world something it Hasni to had before. Remember Doug Lurton s thirteen words. Afraid to testify to their Faith editor the Enterprise a sunday evening Union service of Christian churches was held recently in a protestant Church. The principal speaker was a jewish rabbi. I believe in Freedom of speech so have no objection to a rabbi expressing himself on a Public platform. But what i cannot understand is Why a rabbi should occupy a Christian pulpit when he does not believe in christianity. He declared that the salvation of the world rests on the people of the world thinking with a minimum of Bias and acting with a maximum of self restraint. A definition of these terms As understood by him would no doubt be very illuminating. However i understand that salvation rests Only upon the knowledge and acceptance of Jesus Christ. It certainly does not rest upon the doctrine of the Freedom of the human mind As further declared by this rabbi. Rut then what can we expect for the very ministers sworn to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ were afraid to mention his name that night. Jewry has scored again.

May 8�?a movement to rally the nation liberals behind a Concrete program for ending unemployment and restoring Prosperity through drastic government action is quietly being Organ f sized Here this Spring. It undertakes to outline a policy around which new dealers might reassemble after an election defeat in 1940�? a Prospect w hich is i frankly taken into 111 account. Up the movement is a a being headed by a Broom Calla group known As the american association for economic Freedom. On its National policy Board Are such men As Bishop Francis j. Mcconnell of the methodist Church monsignor John a. Ryan. Rabbi Stephen s. Wise president Frank p. Graham of the University of North Carolina. Prof. Paul h. Douglas of the University of Chicago editor we Illiam Allen White of the Emporia Gazette. Sex gov. William a. Sweet of Colorado and Frank p. Walsh chairman of the new York Power authority. Its acting chairman is w. Jett Lauck Washington economist. Biel aimed at future for upwards of a year the association has been drafting a Hill which is tentatively called the Industrial reconstruction act. This Bill will shortly be introduced in the House and Senate. There is not even a Remote Chance that it will pass and the association knows it. It Hopes though that hearings can be had on it later and that these hearings plus a publicizing Campaign a will Force the measure on the country s attention and get it widely discussed. It May be years before a real concerted drive to pass it gets under Way. The Bill is based on the theory that americans productive capacity is ample to give the nation an annual income of at least too billions if not considerably More. In Brief the Bill would set up a National reconstruction commission with a planning Board under it and a set of regional or Industrial councils sprouting off below that. Each of the big industries affecting interstate Commerce would be studied to determine its productive capacity the potential demand for its product the number of men it would employ if operating at capacity wage Levels Price Levels and so on. Government would Dic Tate eventually a program Widd Ive framed for each Industry designed to step up both production and employment. A government Assurance corporation w Ould be set up to insure individual producers against loss in any increased production they might be required to undertake. A government capital issues banking system would be created to provide needed capital for new enterprises or for expansion of old ones. On these programs then Industrial activity would lie expanded All along the line. This it is argued would absorb unemployment while the new purchasing Power thus created would absorb the increased output. There is no pretence that this would he anything but government compulsion of the most compulsive sort. Federal licensing of All corporations would be involved a Given firm production schedule during any one year would be something handed Down from above. Private ownership would continue Aud so would private profits but private control would be strictly limited. In drafting All of this the association is looking a Long Way ahead. It secs the weakness of the a Lili Erali position As the Lack of a definite specific program for coping with the country economic ills. Immediate action on the Bill is not hoped for. The proposition will be kept in the Public Eye. However and in some quarters the thought is advanced that if the new Deal loses in the 1940 election this program might constitute a rallying Point for 1944. Littler drinks Beer a special one per cent beverage brewed especially for him. Moderation in All things when will Daylight saving time go out again just when we get used to the new radio schedule.

Now that Lou Gehrig a Streak has been broken How about looking for the Umpire whose Noggin has deflected the most consecutive pop bottles to German leaders the Prospect of attaining nazi ambitions in Europe is As far removed As the poles. Question Why docs the baseball season Start so Early answer so the magnates can take advantage of the cold weather to make up lucrative summer doubleheaders. It May be that few of the new York fair visitors will inspect the scientific exhibits. But. At least we All know now what a try Lon and a Peris a Herd Are. How much stronger we might be if our forces were United in the struggle against sin. The world and the episcopal Bishop Francis m. Taitz
