North yamlina newspapers must mak? a profit, if they art to sur
vive, the same as newspapers everywhere. They can't afford to
waste or give away the space which is their stock in trade.
And yet according to Charles J. Parker, state advertising direc
tor, the newspapers gave the state more than $100,000 worth of free
advertising last year.
Although this space cost the newspapers the same as any other
space, ii was expended In a cause dear to the hearts of all North

the future of North Carolina. When the people are prosperous and

In addition to the advertising space which the newspapers donated
to the state, they also opened their news columns to an untold a
mount of publicity for state causes. This was done on the theory
that people are interested in the activity of their state government.
In short this kind ol information was interpYeted as being news and
was handled as such. Editors leaned over backwards to give a liber

not gone unnoticed. A bound volume of this advertising in perma

SECURITY AMID TRAGEDY
Heaven and earth will. p*M away
but my words will not paas away;
Mark IS :31.
This age in which we are living
seems to be one o< those transition
periods in which occur many vio
lent eruptions of one kind or an
other. It Is the opinion of many
students of history that when the
present disturbance is over we
will experience a peace that will be j <
different from any that we have j I
known hitherto. Jesus lived in the
period of transition of mankin>
from Judaism to Christianity. It
was accompanied by such disturb
ances as wars and rumors of wars
earthquakes, nation arising agains
nation and even division in families.
Not so long before Jesus was bom
there was the fearful disturbance
caused by the Syrian effort to de
stroy the religion of the Jews;
I which brought on the Maccabean
i wars. Shortly after the death of
; Jesus the Jews revolted agains '
; Rome which brought war. and Jer :
usalem was overrun by the Rom
ans and the Temple destroyed neve
to be rebuilt. These upheavels d<
not cease entirely but they becom
less violent in later periods of his
All that is physical and tempor
al will pass away. These belong t>

the world. They are here for our
use in preparation for existence in ;
another state. In heaven there will
be no violation of law, no illness, '?
sorrow and death. Not even mat- 1
rimony but we will be as the ang
les of God. Heaven ? the visible !
way, but my words will not pass 1
way, but my words willnot pass a- 1
There are two things that we
may acquire here which we take
with us to the better world, namely,
education and religion. These are
ours for keeps. No crook, shyster,
or Shylock can take them from us.
All else but these are left here
1 when we leave for the other world.
' Lot was a wealthy citizen of Sodom
but he left it all when he went out
of that city. That is true of any of
us. We just cannot take our worldly
goods along when we leave this
werld. But our education and our
religion statr us off in Heaven with
good sized bank account.
Wherein lies our security in this
world of such tragic conditions?
What are the things that abide?
; The teaching of Jesus abide. "My
: words will not pass away." When
one builds into his character the
principles enunicated by Jesus he
is building his house upon a rock.
Storms and floods cannot destroy it
because it is securely founded.
When we instill these principles
into the lives of others we are lay
ing up for ourselves treasures in
Heaven. This is a safe investmen
and will prove invaluable to us.
Our security lies in the sover- J
| eignty of God. When our souls are
anchored in tne promises of Al- j
mighty God nothing can harm us |
