A a a to love an enemy i the distinguished characteristic of a religion which is not of Man but of Rojas. Keady to Call on or. Average citizen at warm Springs president a Roosevelt says a a we be got a Little Over a year left. Few Are ready to judge by the remark that the president will not in again. At Wilmington one of North Carolina s keenest National politicians Lindsay Warren expresses the conviction that the president will not seek a thud term. Or Warrens opinion May arise from Hope. It is Well known that the first District congressman is a close Friend and admirer of the vice president. There is need for Little speculation As to his first Choice for next president. Of or. Roosevelt meant yesterday to suggest that he intends to relinquish his responsibilities Early in 1941, he showed no disposition to tidy up the premises and prepare quarters for comfortable occupancy by his successor. On the contrary he stressed the need of new Federal exp Wendi Tures an additional half billion must lie raised by taxation or borrowed to carry out the materializing administration defense program. The a a people Are called upon to decide which it shall be. What the a people Quot will have to do with it in View of the fact that Congress As constituted now is Likely to make the decision is not quite Clear. One thing is Clear there is less talk about getting the Money from the Rich and an increasing threat of a general increase of the levies on income taxpayers than we have heard for several years. The Small Man seems about to get his special Call fro i the tax collector. A plea for sanity thanksgiving for this state has not arrived and Christmas is a month away but already suburban boys of High Point in the spirit of wild West Days Are making All the noise they can with firecrackers. Last Christmas and for Many Holiday seasons past right in the very heart of the City even around hospitals where there were fever racked or suffering patients it was the very old Nick to pay in the matter of noise making fireworks. We Grant that there Are citizens Here who freely say that boys must have their fun. Possibly some of our Law enforcement officers thinking of the Days when they were boys regard the noise making business somewhat leniently. But in View of the Many accidents Here to boys who have persisted in handling fireworks the annoyance to a pedestrians motorists and shopkeepers the fire hazards to local property and information from other cities As to Large establishments burned to the ground All on account of fireworks we Aru certain right now that we should use All the god Given sanity we have in stopping this infernal business in its incipient by this season. All use of fireworks is supposed to be under municipal control. The ordinance now on the books of the City in reference to the Sale of fireworks and their use should be enforced to the letter even if some adults and Young hopefuls Are hailed before the judges. The state has had an Opportunity to put the ban on the Sale of fireworks Guilford county has had a similar Chance. Nothing tangible save in municipalities has been accomplished. Action will come by reason of necessity. Until that Day arrives parents should absolutely refuse to give Money to their children to buy fireworks. Situation not hopeless d. Hiden Ramsay in an address before the Asheville rotary club thursday predicted that the present so called phoney War in Europe will glow into the most devastating conflict that Ever ravaged Europe a one that will end with perhaps with european civilization hopelessly degraded. The Hickory daily record says that or. Ramsey general manager of the Asheville citizen times is regarded As one of the keenest observers among the newspaper men of North Carolina. The record is in Accord with another statement on the part of or. Ramsey to the effect that Woodrow w Ilson was the greatest Man of his generation and that to achieve a lasting world peace the nations must eventually form an organization drenched in the vision that led the world War president to formulate his plan for a league of nations. We like that phrase a udi encho in the vision but of Europe is to. Be hopelessly degraded by her present struggle of what use would any splendid vision be it is possible to lie practical without timing Overly optimistic As to the outcome. Here in America gangsters had the idea that crime paid and Many Are still of that opinion. Rut a Large number either dead or in prison have Learned for a surety that this nation is winning its War against crime. The tycoons of past Days who made sporadic efforts to a Cor Nero the Market on such commodities As wheat and Cotton in the United states Learned to their sorrow that did not pay. Complacent humanity bears Many ills but hot a for it lies in the fact that it refuses to he everlastingly submerged and Browbeaten. Past bloody wars in Europe and the rehabilitation which followed indicate that no struggle Over there will hopelessly degrade the people unless ail Hope of survival and the love of Liberty die in the hearts of men. Just now a the parliament of Man the federation of the world seems a Long Way off. However that the nations should not somehow muddle through to something better seems unthinkable. War with the allies on the losing end. Ambition exposed a Guilford member of the general Assembly or. Carruthers has announced his candidacy both for reelection and for the speaker ship of the House of representatives. Several experienced legislators could be found who might warn the Greensboro Man that it is better to run for one of the honors at a time. Jack Morphew of Graham and Thomas Hoyle of Guilford were among those compelled to recognize the fact that an aspiration towards the speaker ship does no to always help induce the Home folks to Send a candidate Back to Plain membership. Or. Carruthers will not run for speaker in Guilford. He will he dependent upon a state wide Campaign among members of the House for that Honor. Therefore his first concern or that of any aspirant for the privilege of presiding Over the House is to persuade the Home county voters that he is the proper Man to represent them in the houses deliberations. Which is not the same As expressing an opinion that or. Carruthers will fail of election or that he Shoi Dnn to let the world know the extent of his Hopes. So i to 1 lost shipping when a nation is fighting for its life it is not Likely to be meticulous in Obser Vance of International rules for the conduct of War. As hideous As the consequences of mining the sea lanes May be the German menace must be met by the allies with efficient counter moves rather than verbal castigation. The blockade which is designed to shut off food and other supplies from the German people is to succeed if at All against every device Germany can use against it. We doubt whether the Neutral portions of the world expect anything else or would expect anything else from a nation less Likely than Germany to break the rules. The Success of the current German attack on shipping suggests i hat the effective new mine May lie the mysterious weapon which Hitler has been threatening to Loose against England. Undoubtedly it is a punishing weapon but one with which the English will be Able to Cope. It is not Likely to reduce shipping to a Point that would Force a conclusion to the with dal Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people when Jack London married he took i wife to live with his Mother Flora. Flora had always taken care of her son. Cooked for him and looked after him. Now she bitterly resented the fact that he had brought a strange woman into the House who insisted on doing for him a woman who had already. As she Felt taken her place in her son affections. The Mother jealous Wrath broke into a storm of neurasthenia. She quarrelled constantly with Bessie the wife. The angry voices of these two bickering women Reverter Ted throughout the House and distributed Jack so that he would have to Stop working on his novels and dash Down the Street to get his Stepsister to come up and Stop the snarling and snapping. How could these distressing scenes me been avoided Here is the answer Twenty years after Jack London death his wife Bessie London confessed to Irving Stone. Jack London s biographer tha she should have handled her Mother in Law differently a i should have catered to Flora Quot she confessed Quot and petted her and made her the Boss and we would have gotten along Fine. But i was Young and wanted to do things for my husband. So we clashed. Close your eyes for a moment and ask yourself if there in t an idea there that you can use. Are you having trouble with an older person in your Home. Or with a More experienced person at the office if so. Why not profit by Bessie London mistake Why Don t Jou do now what she wishes she had done Twenty year ago Why not pet the older person and let him or her be the Boss remember you will be old yourself some Day and. When you Are. Vou won t want the younger generation crowding you out and neglecting you and ordering you about. Remember fools quarrel and Bicker and insist on having their Way Why Don t you Rise above fools Why done to you use tact diplomacy and finesse a tools that fools never use. It will be a lot More fun. It will a in friends for you it of will gain influence and. Deep Down inside of you. You will take Pride in the fact that you know How to Deal adroitly with people last August in peking.

Perhaps we should not have allowed Comrade Stalin to exhibit his wares at the fair in any shape or form by ringing the soviets this privilege we could Advance several Pace it Bruce Catton in Washington business gain averts Relief crisis Washington. Nov. 25.Only the current pickup in business is saving the country from one of its worst Relief crises in the opinion of spa officials. Even with the pickup. Which has caused an estimated re Orn Plo Mient of 1,000.000 men spa is Quot feeling the pressure of unemployment and need As it Seldom has before. And while it is hoped that the Vav Park Relief organization can got through Catton the Winter without asking Congress for a deficiency appropriation a midwinter slump in business would make such a request certain. The difficulty comes partly because in the very nature of things spa can to get much immediate Benefit out of a sudden business revival and partly because of the reduced scale on which spa is having to Oji Erate. Appropriation g t meant Mpa slash last Winter when there were 3.000,-000 men on spa Congress voted an appropriation designed to carry an average enrolment of 2,000,000 this year. It also ordered the famous a pay less furloughs Quot for All workers who had been on the Rolls for 18 months or More. Spa slashed its Rolls heavily during the summer and Early fall As a result. There were 780, xxx of the 18-months people to he discharged. There were Many others who left the Rolls voluntarily or were removed for other reasons. During july for instance. Spa got rid of 490, workers in August it separated 7x2,000 More from its Rolls and took another 231.000 off in september. Average enrolment of 2,000.000 forecast but it had an enormous backlog of prospective enrollees people who had Chen certified for spa employment by the local Relief organizations and who were waiting their turn. So in july it got 131,000 accessions to its Rolls in August 292.000, and in september. 402.000. As of nov i spa enrolment had been Cut to 1.901 894. Since there is always a Rise in the Relief Rolls in cold weather this total will Rise during the next month or two hut on present calculations spa will be Able to get through to the end of the fiscal year next june with an average enrolment for the year of around 2,000.000. But it still has its huge backlog of people who Are certified As in need and who Are waiting for spa jobs. This backlog would be much larger As a matter of fact if it were not for the fact that Many local Relief organizations knowing that m a is not doing much hiring have simply stopped certifying people. Thone Laid off head Rauk for Rolla right no spa is conducting a Survey to find out what happened to the 18-month people who were Laid off. Present indications Are that most of them Are hurting straight Hack for spa in general they were the older or the More poorly skilled worker and hence Are handicapped in the Hunt for private employment. Economic dislocation due to the drouth and floods in various parts of the country have already thrown a Small Monkey wrench inter a pay a retrenchment program. Orders went out recently to take on 56,000 additional workers in la of the drouth and flood states an a special Relief measure. Of on top of this there is a business recession this Winter. Spa simply wont be Able to stick to its 2.-000,000 average and will have to ask for More Money. Tile Basic trouble As one spa official puts it is simply this about one fourth of the country a unemployed Are on Mpa. When there is a business revival m a can expect that its men will get about one fourth of the new jobs. There has been an employment Rise of about 1,000.000 in recent months and a pay a share of that is 250, but in that time. It has reduced its own Rolls by More than 1.000,000.
