I Ost important change in reorganization after the storm Over the presidents reorganization of Yvern ment Bill Congress enact i a measure which gives the Alite House the Chance to rear Inize a with the veto Power eld in congressional hands. I Ner this act the president is prodding to rearrange bureaus and apartment in the interest of streamlining Quot the government. His estimate that the changes Iii save Twenty millions a year i operating costs May be a Decidable one but if so that much saving in the conduct of our government is taking a very Light Traw from the camels Back. The most important change the White House has made is the Ransfer of the budget Bureau to tree presidential control. In the ast the director of the budget As been the one functionary who it und his orders in the Laws ingress enacted and was free f executive regulation. Congress accepting the change perhaps realizing that it has the Power to store the old relationship if conditions seem to demand peroration. The practical effect of this Ransfer May prove to be unobjectionable but we confess a to it Ive preference for a budget urea apart and free legally from executive domination. This has appeared to us among the important checks and balances of in Republic which founders and Withful supporters have Emp a 1 1 offic Jet Chi sch i is in the proposal that the discipline of United methodism be relieved of a Little of the severity of the Northern churches old position on whiskey a use was denounced at Kansas City and tabled. The denominations position is reaffirmed to the effect that methodist Church membership and drinking of alcoholic beverages Are inconsistent. The Issue troubled the conference deeply. It is the kind of Issue which is Likely to be troublesome permanently possibly no requirement of alcoholic abstinence should have been made part of the discipline originally. But positive action for its repeal would be misunderstood As a weakening of the churches intolerance of one of Many a vices. The denomination thus struggles with a centuries old distinction Between hatred of the sin and hatred of a sinner. The kindly Christian May question whether Jesus would have spurned an erring Follower or placed him on trial with a View to ousting him from Fellowship. May we not presume that those who sought at Kansas City a modification of the denominational requirement that the Drinker be brought to trial and expelled from membership if he ignored pastoral admonition was mover in no part by a desire to embrace the Demon years of service experience is Likely to make one suspicious of the statistics of Public service agencies upon which accurate Check cannot be made. The temptation to Rule questionable factual matter in favor of the Agency makes padding More or less commonplace. But we May discount heavily the service figures of the agricultural Extension service of North Carolina and still Praise that service for its remarkable coverage. Yesterday the Silver anniversary of the establishment of the Extension service was celebrated and in connection with the occasion announcement was made that the service program reached 256,139 of the states 300,967 farm families last year and that 288,747 of those families adopted improved farm and Home practices a presume Day As a direct consequence of the influence of the service. The reach and effect of the service Are not Likely to be minimized in departmental records naturally but the Devotion of the Extension service to the purpose Back of its founding is a fully established fact. North Carolina farm families do rely upon it for guidance and for help in Many Fields of their operations. The Extension service has improved Home and farm conditions in this state and we deem it entitled fully to cordial congratulation upon the work done during its first Quarter of a Century. No other Agency has done More in our opinion to improve living conditions for the 65 per cent of North Carolinas people living outside the Urban communities. In the news the Duke of Windsor spoke tingly yesterday when depicting the effect of another general War he said a in modern times the Victory will lie Only with the Powers of it would be a mistake to say that nothing Good came out of the world War. Science made wonderful Progress surgery was advanced a generation great drives in humanitarian service resulted. But nonetheless forces of evil were loosened that have not been recaptured science still gives far too much attention to wholesale Slaughter the map of Europe changed to permit the growth of democracy has been re changed to make people the pawns of dictators. So the arc criminal enthroned by the world War was none other than the Devil himself. There a no apology Here though for your Uncle Sammy trying to keep the Devil in his place. Apparently the Mcdonald Observatory in Texas with its big Telescope is going to confuse us with a few More mysteries. This item is among the latest to come out of fort Davis where the Observatory is situated a instead of constellations astronomers now detect such things As death rays millions of Miles Long highways where stars travel to and fro Dusty sky deserts a special continent of stars near the Earth and Light that does not come from maybe after All sunstroke is not Sun stroke but a death Ray shot. Perish the thought a we were just on the Point of saying that we knew of two or three spots Over in Europe where the Ray might do some effective work for humanity. In a note to its news department the Goldsboro news Argus advises a give space to any real news or anything that is really humanly interesting about British King and Queen. But no More t Han that the president of a Small Central american a spin country is really More important to citizens of the United states than the British King and Queen because he at Home really rules while the Royalty do so in name the editor of the Nevis Argus is not talking through his hat. At the same time we rather Welcome the idea of something to get us away from the eternal round of politics the bickering As to whether eur is a dictator or not prospects of a third term and so on. Luckily in paying respects to English Royalty we wont have to a Bow and scrape and most assuredly we will not be asking the King and Queen whether they Are democrats or republicans. Item from los Angeles a for eight years or. Popenoe has been trying to uns Narl Domestic tangles in los Angeles nearly half of whose marriages end in divorce. He is director of the Institute of family we be knowing the doctor but surmise he has a whale of a Job. Those Young men who fear to undertake marriage because of the Many divorces might think on these words of t. L. Peacock a marriage May often be a Stormy Lake but celibacy is almost always a Muddy with Dale Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people Are Cwi superstitious and have you been taunted about it ? Well if so Don t worry for you have Good company. In the Spring of 1909, Admiral pm Ary was Hie first Man in history to reach the pole and he did it after 23 years of Heartbreak and cruel discouragement and on his final dash to the pole he wore a Good Luck Coin pinned to his shirt seventeen years later. Commander Richard e. Byrd was the first Man Ever to Fly Over the North pole and As he flew Over it he had pinned to his shirt the same Good Luck Coin that Pean had carried and he actually rubbed it with his fingers the moment he flew Over the pole. That lit Flo Good Luck Coin is the Only known object that has Ever been to the North pole twice. Napoleon Bonaparte conquered Europe and changed the map around As if it were a Jigsaw Puzzle and yet he was afraid of Black cats Peter the great was the most famous and cruel Czar who Ever sat on the bloody throne of Russia. He was so cruel that he murdered his own son yet he was afraid to Cross a tiny Bridge unless he made a holy sign. Lord Nelson is the greatest naval hero m English history yet he was so superstitious that he had a horse shoe nailed to the Mast of his ship during the famous Battle of Trafalgar. Or. Samuel Johnson one of the Moi to Brilliant intellects in All the annals of English literature was so superstitious that he struck Ever lamp Mist that he passed with his Cane. The Day after Abraham Lincoln was elected president he looked into a Mirror and saw his body reflected with two faces and one of them ver Yale he feared that was a sign of oncoming death. George Washington had an Iron band put on his stepdaughter Patsy to cure her of epilepsy. Think of it. But she finally died of epilepsy so i guess the Iron ring was no Protection after All. Matthew c Brush a director in 17 corporations and the head of a Hundred million Dollar investment Trust has hundreds of Ivory elephants in his Home. He says that years ago when he was the president of the Boston elevated railways a strike was on. And he was worried. A Little girl brought him a tin elephant and told him that it would bring him Good Luck. A few Days later the strike was settled to his satisfaction and Ever since then he has been collecting a Good Luck elephants. Now when he has an important decision to make he always holds a Little elephant bet Wen his second and third fingers for Luck. When the Stock Market is going up he wears a Blue silk tie embroidered with a White elephant. So done to allow people to make you think it ourself crazy if you Are superstitious. But Don t let your superstition drive you to silly antics or get Between you and your goal. If it does t do these things then be superstitious an Don t worry about it.
