An Interesting Fact
The interesting fact contained in the
advertisement of a local drug store Mon
day reveals the extent of the poultry in
dustry in Wilkes and surrounding coun
During the twelve months of last year,
it was estimated that 3,300,000 pounds of
poultry were shipped out of Wilkes coun
ty to northern markets. And in return,
poultry raisers were paid about $260,000.
North Wilkesboro has one of the largest
poultry markets in the South and is recog
nized as a poultry center. Despite the low
prices of the past few years, it api>ears to
us that increased activity in the poultry
business would be wise.
The Jefferson Road
Wilkes and Ashe counties are again
elated over prosspects for immediate con
struction of the Jefferson highway be
tween Millers Creek and Glendale Springs.
The latest word is that a portion of the
road will be let about May 1.
The Journal-Patriot, which considers
this a project of major importance to
North M'ilkesboro as well as to the neigh
boring county of Ashe, trusts that con
siderable progress on this road can be
made this summer. We are confident that
Mr. Jeffress realizes what the road means
to this section and that he will continue
to look favorably upon the project, thus
assuring completion of the entire link at
the earliest possible date.

“With a reduction in revenue and with

resultant deficit to be taken care of?"

: The Spring Round-up
The, Journal-Patriot wholeheartedly en
dorses the spring round-up campaign
which is being conducted by the North
WUkerfxiro Parent-Teaeter Association.
* Next Wednesday and Thursday Should
be big days for the youngsters who are
looking forward to entering the first
grade here this fall. On those days, they
will be given the opportunity of health
examinations. Dr. Eller and Mrs. Bell will
undoubtedly find many defects which
should be corrected this summer. There
will be enlarged adenoids, diseased tonsils,
poor condition of the mouth and other
minor defects which, if attend^ to at
once, can be remedied.
The duty of the parents is clear. They
want to give their children a chance in
life. They do not want their children to
hold back the procession or be left behind.
It is, therefore, important that these chil
dren should be taken to the family physi
cian during the summer months and have
the defects remedied.
The two spring round-ups in the past
have proven their merit. Children whose
defects have been corrected are always
better students than those who have to
labor under health handicaps, a survey
shows. The results are sufficient to justi
fy the hope that every parent will co-oper
ate in the campaign next week.

Washlnstdn, April 19. (Auto
caster)—The new "strong man'
in the Administration is W, Aver-
ell Harrlman. He is practically
running the NRA now, and Is
stated to be Its head when Gen-
er*t;Hugh Johnson retires or is
moved out of his present post.
People always speak of Averell
Harrlman as "young” Harrlman.
He is 43, which is about the aver
age age of the men who rnn
things In Washington, He is the
son, however, of the late E. H.
Harrlman, and old-timers- who
remember his father, the great
railroad builder and financier,
still think of the present head of
the family as a boy. Bnt before
he was thirty be had proved him
self a man of great administra
tive ability in his own right. The
great shipbuilding plant which
he constructed during the war
was his first single-handed entry
into the world of affairs. Since
then he has .proved himself a
sound and far-eeeing business
man in many directions.
Already, under "young” Harrl-
raan’s direction, the administra
tion of NRA la shaping Itself
more to the liking of those who
come under its jurisdiction.
The Washington Picture
It is agreed by most experienced ob-
seiwers that the administration at Wash-
ington is now facing the first real test of
Absence of criticism during the early
stages of the revolutionary program was
deceiving to the average citizen, but was
understood by those “in the know. ’ The
feeling that better times are ahead, if not
now fully arrived, has relieved the ten
sion and the public is beginning to express
itself more freely on national problems.
President Roosevelt has proved himself
an able skipper and the proverbial ship of
state has rounded some dangerous points
during the past 13 months. He has had to
keep the liberals from going too far and
jab the conservatives every now and then
to keep them from holding back when
necessary changes were sought. The lib
erals .have had the edge. With the first
thirteen months already history, our guess
is that the conservatives will soon have
“This Week In Washington” offers the
basis for this observation. The weekly
column from W’ashington always gives
some interesting sidelights on the Wash
ington situation and this week presents
tlie new picture.
Davis and .Agriculture
Much the same sort of thing
can be said for the new manage
ment of the AAA under C. C.
Davis, successor to George Peek
as the manager of the Govern
ment’s relations with agriculture.
Some of the agricultural groups,
at least, seem better satisfied,
though there still is the prob
ability of some sharp clashep be
tween the A.AA and tlie milk co
There is an acute realization
here, even among the President's j
strongest supporters, that the Ad-
ministration’s program is not i
quite as popular with everybody
as the earlier absence of criticism |
led many to believe. j
The first real show of opposi
tion to the Roosevelt policies is
beginning to make itself felt. The
result of this, serious in sonre
qnar.ters. will be a letting-up in
the pressure to put some of the
more radical social reforms into
immediate effect. It is also hav
ing an effect upon Congressional
thinking which will he reflected
in Congressional acts between
now and adjournment.
Congress is far more conserva
tive. left to itself, than the Pres
ident is. So long as Congressmen
got reports from their districts j
indicating that the people were ;
unanimously Irehlnd the Presi
dent, they felt that they were I
only doing their duty to their
' constituents in accepting every-
^ thing that came from the White
House without quesfioB.
The Picture duuHpee
Now maigf oMliem are gettloc
a somewhat olfferent picture-
from t^e home dlstrlets, and the
tendency is to listen to advice
from other quarters and make
their own deeisioits as to what to
do about such things, as sand
ing the securities act solas to
make it easier for industry to^
fnance itself, modifying the stock
exchange bill so as not to crip
ple legitimate trrtle in secitrities,
and scruttnlslng such proposals
as the compulsory five-day,. slx-
honr-a-day proposed in the mneh-
heralded Wagner bill.
The outlook Is that the stock
exchange bill and securities set
amendments will be passed be
fore adjournment, which is now
tentatively talked of as around
May 15th. ’There may, also, come
out of the legislative mill some
new inflationary measure, such
as the Dies silver bill which pro
vides for acceptance of silver at
a premium in payment tor farm
In short, Congress is in a
temper now to resume its pre
rogatives as a co-ordinate branch
of the Government. It mustered
strength enough to re-enact the
Federal offices and veterans com
pensation bill over the Presi
dent’s veto, and the skies dldn'*t
fall. It may take the bit In its
teeth and holt, but that is hard
ly likely if, as is anticipated, the
pressure from the White House
•Is relaxed and the general feel
ing of the folks back home is
still one of admiration for the
President. And nothing as yet In
dicates that there is not a pretty
large majority of the people who
still feel that way.
Feleral R'Hef Continues
The ending of the CWA does
not mean the end of Federal re
lief for those in distress. But the
new policies to be pursued under
the $550,000,000 available for
aid to those in need will not be
disbursed haphazard, but the ef
fort is to he made, according to

JESUS TEACHES FORGIVENESS
Les.son for .-Viiril 15th. Matt. 18:15-35. Golden
Text: Matthew 6:12.
Peter thought, no doubt, that he was extreme
ly generous in suggesting that forgiveness be
multipliei .seven times. The common rule was
“Firgive thr=e times but not the fourth.” Jesus,
however, with a handsome gesture of spiritual
iniagisation. di.spensed with petty) arithmetical
calculation .and proclaimed, the principle of un
limited reconciliation. “Not sev’n times over, I
tell you, but seventy-seven times over!” And
then, to reinforce this advice, He narrated th?
picturesque parable of the unmerciful sen’ant,
notable for its sharp contrast between unusual
generosity and shabby ill'berality. Here is a
king whose .servant owed him the impossible
sum of ten million dollars- Of course he could
not pay- 50 his master ordered him. his family
and all his property to be .sold for part payment-
But the slave pleaded against this decree so im
ploringly that the monarch’s heart was touched,
and he cancelled the debt. Immediately, how
ever, the servant m^'t a fellow-slave who owed
h ni a paltry ?20. Seizing him by the throat, and
almost choking him, he demanded instant reim
bursement Naturally the kin g, when the news
r ached him. was very angry and threw the im-
pude.nt follow into jail.
It may be objected that the parable is an
over-statement, and therefore not a real trans
cript of actual life. It must be granted that the
unmerciful servant is an 4xceptional case. Never
theless he does exist. Here is a bus’n'ss man who
pleads with his creditors for more lenient terms,
but makes no concessions whatever to his debt
Obviously the central point of this famous tale
is that it is sinful, to cultivate an unforgiving
spirit. Now it is quite customary for folk to
cherish a grudjge, or resent an insult. Many a
person has not spoken to his next-door neigh
bor for years because of some trivial altercation
or imaginary affront. All such need to ponder
upon the meaning of this searching parable.
