The Dawn Is Here
That the nation is emerging from the
night of the past several months seems
evident as men are returning to work and
wages are being increased. Few of us
pretend to know just how all the meas
ures looking to improving business con
ditions will work out, but President Roose
velt has the utmost confidence in the out
come and the neat way in which all fea
tures of the administration program dove
tail gives added reason for increased
With an expansion of credit, there
should be nothing to hold back the move
ment for recovery. That program is be
ing vigorously pushed by an extremely
vigorous leader. Therein lies the as
surance that recovery is on the way.
The dawn is here. We see the light of
a new faith and confidence on every hand.
Developments are now tangible and there
i.s a real foundation for the optimism now
SuggettinB a Festival
The suggestion that Wilkes county
stage a festival in the autumn when tlie
Brushy Mountain forests are in their glory
seems.a very practical one. ^ust ,^what
type of festival and how .financed' are
problems that would have to be worked
out after the decision had been reached
that such a venture would be worthwhile.
Due to the excellent air drainage on the
Brushies, the leaves are permitted to go
through the full range of colors. This is
perhaps true of only a few spots in the
entire country. Three years ago forests
all over the state were revealed in all
their grandeur and beauty due to cli
matic conditions during the fall and we
recall distinctly the gorgeous picture
they presented. That is true every year
on the Brushies.
It would not be an impractical under
taking to sponsor and advertise a forest
festival. If successful, such a festival
would acquaint the people of North Caro
lina and all who attend with unexcelled
beauty of our garden spot. Those who
took the time to attend would be repaid
for their trouble.
Some idea of what it would mean was
obtained from a reading of the material,
sent to the county by R. W. Graeber, ex
tension forester of State College. With
his assistance and with our citizens be
hind it, we feel confident that a very bene
ficial festival could be staged.
Only those who have watched the sun
set amid the golden-tinted forests of the
Brushies can appreciate Mr. Graeber’s
suggestion. And only those who have
never had the privilege of drinking of the
beauty of such a scene would miss the

BRUCE BARTON WRITES
In addret.sing the graduates of Wilkes-
boro high school, Charles W. Phillips, of
Greensboro, advised them to work toward
three objectives. The objectives as he
gave them were:
Get for yourself a good name.
Get for yourself an education.
Get for yourself the right philosophy of
The greatest of all books—the Bible—
teaches us to seek that first objective. A
good name is rather to be chosen than |
great riches.” That is something that can'
be placed in the category of permanent
Get an education. What is an educa
tion? A lot of book knowledge that is
never used? That question could be ans
wered by merely saying yes and no. But
what Mr. Phillips had in mind was book
knowledge plus whatever knowledge in
special lines that is needed to fit an indi
vidual to fit himself or herself for what
ever task there is to perform. Do the job
right, do it well.
The right philosophy of life, as he ex
pressed it, means more than a high sound
ing phrase. It is to accept the best that
can be obtained, leaving worry and use
less waste of brain and energy to others.
As an example of the wrong philosophy,
Mr. Phillipps pointed to the man who
spoiled a day because the rain came and
forced him to give up his planned fishing
trip. Be content with nothing less than
the best you can obtain and then refuse
to worry over that might express the
thwht Mr. Phillips had in mind.
Get those three tilings and an individual
will be on road to^a’tsucc^ui |ife.
SERVICE, NOT SER.MONS
Jesus rose from his seat, drawn by that splendid
outburst of faith and without hesitation or ques
tioning he Started. He went with the father whose
daughter was dead. All his life he seemed to feel
that there was no limit at all to what he could do,
if only those who beseeched him believed enough.
Grasping the father’s amr he led the way up the
street, his disciples and the motley crowd hurrying
They had several blocks to travel, and before
their journey w-as completed another interruption
A woman who had been sick for twelve years
edged through the crowd, eluded the sharp eyes
of the disciples and touched the hem of his gar
ment. ‘Tor she said wdthin herself, if I may but
touch his garment- I shall be whole.” • . . What
an idea. . • . What a personality his must have
been to provoke such ideas. . . . ^‘My daughter is
dead, but lay your hands on her and she will live.”
. . . “I’ve been sick for twelve years; the doctors
can do nothing, but if I only touch his coat I’ll be
all right.” . . . How can the artists possibly imagin
ed that a .sad-faced weakling could ever inspire
such amazing ideas as these! »
The woman won her victory. By that touch, by
hi.s smile, t>y the few words he spoke, h-'r faith

whole from that hour”
Again he moved forward, the :rowd pressing
hard. The ruler’s residence was now in plain
.sight. The paid mourners, hired by the hour, were
busy about the doorway; they increased their ac
tivities a.s their employer came in sight—hideous
wails and the duT sounding of cymbals—a horrible
preten.se of grief. Quickening his stride, Jesus was
in the midst of them.
“Give place,” he cried with a commanding ges
ture. “The maid is not dead but sleepeth.”
They laughed him to scorn. Brushing them
aside he strode into the house and took the little
girl by th? hand. The crowd looked on dumbfound
ed, for at the magic of his touch she opened her
eyec, and sat up.

In spite of the fact that many
owners of real estate have suf

years, land remains the safest,
soundest investment in the long
