, ^ “No Change Up There”
An editorial cartoon in the Greensboro
Daily News Monday pictured the Stars
'and Stripes waving in the breeze atop a
dome which was labeled, “United States
Government.” The cartoon caption was,
“No Change Up There.” » »*
The cartoon tells a story of encourage*
ment. Thank God, that no matter who is
at the controls and in whatever crisis in
■ our national life, the Stars and Stripes
wave “o’er the land of the free and the
home of the brave.”
There is no real change in the Ameri
can people. There is no real change in
the fundamentals of the American doc
trine and the American system. There is
no lessening of the courage, the stamina
and determination of true Americans
In every storm, though lashed about
severely, the Stars and Stripes, symboliz
ing American patriotism and the superla
tive in sincere devotion, w'ave above a gov
ernment dedicated to the “proposition
that all men are created free and equal.”
When the sunlight bursts through the
clouds, there it remains aloft, undiminish
ed in its beauty and glory.

In the interest of healthy—^the most valu

claim—those who.live in rural communities
should, if possible, arrange for the proper
disposal of sewage and give attention to the.
water supply. ^ '
The health department is vitally interest
ed in the matter of fighting the flies this
spring. Mr. Battle makes a rather severe in
dictment of this kind of disease carrier,
and no one who reads this statement should
Jet up in their efforts to keep flies out of the
home and away from foods.
Mr. Battle’s statement does not mince
words. It frankly and boldly gives the
facts and should be a warning to the general
public. ♦ ' I*- • f » ’’

A Worthy Program ,
In entering upon the ta.sk of making
Wilkesboro more attractive, Wilkesboro’s
Woman’s Club sets an example worthy of
emulation by the people of all towns and
even rural communities. The habit of al
lowing unsightly rubbish to accumulate
around the home and on the .streets and
highways is one that can be corrected
without either great expense or effort.
If the space around the home—by that
we mean the backyard as well as the
lawn—is kept clean and attractive at all
times, the effort and expense are not so
great as when the accumulation reaches
the point where removal entails a couple
of days’ work to straighten things up and
haul the rubbish away.
“Clean Up and Keep Clean,” the slo
gan adopted b:-’ the ilkesboro civic or
ganization, is a good one. A clean town is
so much more attractive, not onlv to the |
foreign but al.so the native eye.
The season will soon be here when sum
mer tourists will be pa.ssing through and
every effort to make a favorable impres
sion upon them should be made. An at
tractive appearance is an impoi'tant step
towai'd that end.
An Assassin’s Victim
Anton J. Cermack, mayor of Chicago,
j known to his friends as Tony, is dead, the
victim of an assassin’s bullet. For more
than two weeks he battled against wounds
made by a bullet which was intended for
his good friend, President Roosevelt, but
he could not overcome the teirible odds.
Cermak was one of the ablest leaders
a Chicago government has had in many
years. Taking over the reigns of a city
that had reeked with corruption and vice
under “Big Bill” Thompson, Mayor Cer
mak set acut cleaning up and brought or
der out of chaos in the financial condi
tion of the country’s second largest city.
Looking through the natural eye, it
would be easy to say that Cermak’s work
was not finished. Hfs death was a real
tragedy for Chicago.
A nation that rejoiced at Mr. Roose
velt’s escape from the assassin’s bullets is
saddened at Mayor Cermak’s death.

Perhaps no people have made greater
progress during the past .50 years than
the colored race. When the slaves were
freed after the War Between the State.s,
few colored nien or women could read or
write. Freedom given their bodies, they
sought greater freedom and expansion in
the realm of thought, and with the aid of
the whites who looked favorably upon
their, zeal for knowledge, they e.stabli.shed
schools and began the slow process of en
lightening several million people who had
grown up in ignorance and slaverv'.
The progress the colored people have
made is indicated at Lincoln Heights
where not ohly textbooks are taught but
where courtes^land culture are a part of
the curriculum. \
One has to but note a passing school
bus filled with students of the school to
gain an idea of the training which is be-
ihg given the children. They are quiet
and orderly, offering no loud remarks and
hurling no quibip-which are not funny at
all at the man’Wa the side of the road.
Sometimes, we thjl^ a lesson might be
earned by studying their methods

ox AIEETIXG AX OBJECTIOX
Every business man knows the value of being
able to sense an objection and meet it before it
is advanced. Jesus knew that far better. He went
one night to dine with a prominent Pharisee
While the dinner was in progress, a certain wo
man of unfortunate experience crept into the
room and kneeling down by Jesus began to
bathe his feet with precious ointment and wipe
them with her hair. Jesns knew what that out-
biir.st of unselfishness meant to an over-burden
ed spirit, and accepted the tribute with gracious
dignity. But all the time he was perfectly well
aware of the thoughts that were passing through
the self-satisfied mind of his host.
“Ah.’’, said that cynical gentleman to himself,
"if he were a prophet he would have known that
this woman is a sinner, and would have refused
to let her touch him."
He might have been tempted to put his thought
into words, but hr never had a chance. Quick as
a flash Jesus turned on him:
■Simon. I tiav.-> somewhat to say to thee."
"Teacher, sa\ on." It was a half concealed
"There was a man who had I wo debtors." said
Jpsiis. "One owed him five hundred shillings and
th” other fiftv. Neither could pay and he forgave
them both. Which of them, do you think, will
love him most'.'"
.Simon sensed a trap, and moved cantiqusly.
"I imagine the one who owed him the most.”
"Kight." .said Jesus. "Simon, seest thou this
•Simon nodded. He began to wish the conver
sation had not started.
"When 1 came into your house, you gave nm
no water for my feet.” Jesus continued with that
extraordinary frankness which cut straight to
the heart of things. "But she has washed my
feet with her tears and dried them with her
hair. You gave me no kiss, but she has not ceased
to kiss my feet. You poured none of yonr expen
sive oil on my head, but she has taken her prec
ious ointment,, which she could ill-afford, and
The dining-room was silent; every eye ■was
turned upon the Teacher; the poor woman still
knelt at his feet, embarrassed that her action
should have caused so much comment.
"She is like the debtor who owed the five
hundred shillings,” he said. "Her sins which arc
many are forgiven, for she loved much. To whom
little is forgiven, the same loves little.” And then
with a glance of infinite tenderness;
“Tny sins are forgiven,” he said to her simply.
It is easy to imagine that the conversation
rather dragged during the remainder of the
meal. Even very supercilious and self-assured
gentlemen hesitated to expose themselves to the
thrusts of a mind which could anticipate criti
cisms before they were uttered, and deal with
them so crisply.

of peace, women be drafted for war. The idea, of
course, is to make it terrible.—Philadelphia In

JESUS MINI.STEIUXG TO THE
Lesson for March 12th. Mark
6:30-44. Golden Text: Matthew
The lesson opens with a pic
ture of the Master and His dis
ciples so busily at work minister
ing to the needs of the many who
hurried to see them, that they
had no time for meals. It is then
that Jesus sounded His call for
a retreat, that they might re
store their depleted energies.
"Come away, all of you,” said
He, "to a quiet place, and rest
Our sorely harassed modern
world greatly needs this advice.
Relaxation is a lost art. We des
perately lack serenity and poise.
Our voices are harsh and high-
pitched. Our muscles are taut.
Our minds are over-tense and ex
cited. William James, the psych
ologist, uses the expressive
phrase, "bottled lightning,” as
an apt description of the explos
ive American temperament.
Systematic exercise of the
hody^stimulates steadiness of
spirit. Well-planned vacations re
store one's balance. Best of all.
religious faith brings an inner,
untroubled peace. When we share
Jesus’ boundless trust in God, we
are calm and unshakable.
But, alas, the Master’s quest
for rest, like so many of our
own attempts today to flee from
the World’s tumult, met with
frustration. When He and His
disciples stepped from the boat
Upon the lonely shore they had
chosen for their escape, a great
multitude was there! It was as
difficult for Jesus to avoid peo
ple as it is for “Babe” Ruth!
With characteristic compas
sion He extended His sympathy
to them, for, as .Mark in our les
son says, “they were like sheep .
which have no shepherd.” And
.now we see 'Jesus rising to the
emergency of hunger. The day
was advancing. The place was re
mote. But Jesus contrived, with
the help of the apostles to feed
those five thousand famished
folk with an abundance to spare.
How this miracle was actually
performed will never be known.
It is futile to try to rationalize
and explain this famous deed of
mercy. The important fact to
bear in mind is that it was not
a merely physical act, but a spir
itual c&mmunion with Him Who ^
is, as John’s gospel tells us, the
true and living Bread.

“Dear Mr. Scoggins;
'“I am sending you under separate cover, "ine piston with rings, as it was re
moved from one of our fleet of 1926 Mack AB, City Type Buses, after being used for
one hundred sixty-six thousand four hundred and fifty-four (166,454) miles of city
service since last being overhauled.
“This bus was used on all our lines and driven by all of our drivers, and is put
to the most severe test, road conditions and abuse- The reason for removing piston
was not due to any failure of American Hammered Rings, as you will find upon in
spection that these still retain the good old hammered tension.
“Was very much pleased with the condition of these rings, they were free in
the lands and show very little wear. Tt is my personal opinion that no one can go
wrong using American Hammered Rings as I have been using them for over six years
in our buses, trucks and passenger cars, and will continue to do so and recommend
them wherever possible.
