A a remember that what you believe la depend very much upon what u Arr Noah Porter. The threat to tar Heel oases speaking of Blitzkrieg con-1 Sider the drive made by the a a Temperance forces of the state against the limited number of Legal alcoholic oases. Today the statement is published that 94 percent of All men running for the legislature in North Carolina have pledged themselves to support a state wide vote on prohibition. We assume that it would be impossible even in the present Large Field to pick legislators from the other six per cent in number sufficient to prevent the election of a dry pledged majority. Clearly the Job of staving off a real threat to the whiskey stores is ready made for the representatives of the few wet counties. Of a state wide vote on prohibition is held North Carolina will vote dry. Loss of the whiskey stores will be a blow to a number of the Eastern counties. The people in some of those counties want whiskey and they do not want to Deal with the Bootlegger. We predict they will do a monster amount of trading to stave off a plebiscite. They May even go so far As to offer to support the constitutional mandate for redistribution of representation in the general Assembly in return for some Western and Piedmont help. The conversion of the Drys to the state wide vote plan has occurred since the wets made practical inroads into the prohibition sector. Originally the Drys opposed a vote. They thought the higher strategy was to work in the legislature itself against impairment of prohibition. But the Beer and Light wine barrage proved successful and it was followed by hard liquor which gained a few toehold to which it clings precariously now. If the boys do not go Back on their promises to the girls of the w. C. T. U. The prohibition Issue will sizzle in 1941. Heavy registration is a hopeful sign politics is the life blood of a few men in every Community. There should be no stigma attached to being a politician unless such a Man is actuated by the belief that anything is fair in politics provided desired results Are gained. Certainly there should be no criticism of those citizens who have busied themselves in getting former qualified voters to do their duty in the matter of getting their names re registered. Whatever the motive of the workers the heavy registration of Guilford county citizens can be of service to the county state and nation. It behoves every voter of course to study Well both the candidates and their platforms my then to vote his sentiments n primaries and the general elec Ion. The voter who is wheeled nto casting his ballot against his principles has Only himself to blame. Anathema too on the cheap politician who deceives a voter with promises that can never be fulfilled the Greensboro record comments As follows on the recent registration in Guilford county any doubt that might have existed about Lack of interest in Guilford county political affairs is dispelled by the results of the new registration. D. Edward Hudgins chairman of the elections Board reports that 30,978 voters registered in 56 of the county a 66 precincts. This fact has led the chairman to predict that the Complete registration will be Between 33,000 and 34,000. This heavy registration is an encouraging and healthy political sign. Of course it cannot be denied that the factional fight within the demo Brauc party in the county played an All important part in the efforts which put Over 30,000 names on the books in a new registration. Granting the significance of this Factor it is still a hopeful sign when prospective voters can be aroused to such keen interest in Public affairs. An excellent Job in registration has been accomplished. The next big assignment is to see that those eligible to vote Are at the polls to exercise the right of the franchise. A proposal for unification in the meeting of doctors at Pinehurst yesterday one member of the profession proposed that the states hospitals for the treatment of the insane be placed under the command of the state Board of health. The suggestion did not come from an official source but we wonder if the Board of health knew that it was to be made and whether that Board is in agreement with the idea. The hospitals Are operated now As throughout their service under their own separate boards of trustees and superintendents. There is no organic connection Between them and the Board of health. On the face of it the proposal seems meritorious. The state health service in North Carolina has won an excellent reputation for competency in the program it has directed. What objection is there to the unification of the health service to incorporate the treatment of mental diseases under the single general command possibly a question of staying Power for nearly 900 years no foreign invader has secured a foothold on the British Isles. The seriousness of the crisis approaching in the present War is emphasized by the warning issued yesterday by the prime minister that England should be prepared for invasion by the germans. The collapse of the defences of Holland opens the Way for an attack by air on England from bases within 125 Miles of the Island. That failure of the dutch to resist the invader More effectively is an impressive circumstance but the even More painful cause for reflection is the evidence piling up that the allies Are lacking in offensive Power. Throughout the War the initiative has been left to Germany. We Are not judging that to be unquestionably bad strategy but with the modern weapons Germany is employing England and France must be prepared to stand terrific punishment. The germans seem resolved to attain a Quick decision if possible. No doubt the dwindling materials of Germany make that kind of push desirable if not necessary. The matter approaches a Point where the stamina of the allies under destructive attack May be tested. If they have the fortitude of Spain a loyalists they May take the Gaff and muddle through to Victory. But for the first time Many millions of people including those responsible for american preparedness envision a Hitler Ian Triumph. In the news Premier Pierrot of France a German brutality repeats that of 1914 and even exceeds it. The world willbe the judge of the germans. The hour will come when Germany will Victor Hugo late French poet and novelist in an autographed prophecy found on the Wall of the room in Paris where he died a i represent a party which does not yet exist the party of revolution civilization.

With Carnegie author of a How to win friends and i influence people l. B. Hopkins president of Wabash College Crawfordsville Indiana sends me this True Story withholding the name of the Young Man for fear of embarrassing him. This Young Man a High school Sophomore decided he was a fed up with the conditions of his fathers Home. His Mother was dead and his father had All he could do to feed the younger children. Did no to seem to be any use hanging around there. So he went Down to the Railroad and hopped a freight. He went out into the farming districts where he followed the harvests living in Hobo Jungles working when he could get work living in much the same Way the Oakes Are pictured in the a grapes of but he Wasny to a typical okie As you will see. A on the Way from one farm District to another he met in a Box car an old tramp. They were sympathetic toward each other. Our Young Man poured out his troubles and voiced his despair to his More experienced Friend. Suddenly As he rambled on he sensed a Lack of sympathy on the part of his listener. He paused then plunged More fully into his woes and to add to the effect he described Hopes and ambitions that once had been his. Still no sympathy. Quot Well what do you think a he asked. The tramp stretched himself pushed the worn sole of his shoe against the Side of the Box car. And said Quot you can quit this sort of thing now and amount to something. If you wait another year you won t be Able the conversation came to a sudden Stop. That night our Young Man did t sleep so Well As he usually did on the floor of a Box car. Restless. Mind Settle. Same thing the next night. But not the third night for he spent that Back under his father s Leaky roof and the morning after he went out and got a Job of sorts. Not much of a Job but it provided food. And he went Back to school with his mind on what the old tramp had said. Not much time left. Must buckle Down. He did just that with the result that a member of the faculty told him if he made a record he would try to get him a Wabash scholarship. He made a record the faculty member made Good he pocketed his scholarship and one Day rolled off a Box car in Crawfordsville to begin his education a with a capital of half a Dollar. He was graduated last Spring a Phi Beta Kappa having pocketed prizes for debates general scholarship and biblical literature. And that Isnit All he is now in Law school on a Fellowship. If you Are idling along getting nowhere you can change your ways now. Why waste your evenings Call a halt now. If you delay a year or More you May not be Able to.
