I'raise For The ISetr Deal It came from an unexpected source all right, but the highest praise so far heard for ^he New Deal was broadcast by Republican Pres idential Nominee Wendell Willkie in his speech at El wood. Indiana, recently After reading what the opposition party champion has to say, one can't help but sympathize with the old guarders as they hang far out on the pro verbial limb. Willkie, taking his text from the very heart of the New Deal, said. -I believe that the forces of free enterprise must be regulalfctf. I am opposed- to business monopolies. ? I believe in collective bargaining by the rep resentatives of labor's, own free choice, without anv interference and in full protection of those obvious rights. "I believe 111 the maintenance ol minimum standards for wages and of maximum standards for hours. 1 believe that such requirements should constantly rise "I believe in Federal regulation of interstate utilities, of securities markets, and of banking. 1 believe in Federal pensions, m adequate old age benefits, and in unemployment allowances "1 believe that the Federal Government has a responsibility to equalize the lot of the farm er with that of the manufacturer. "I believe in the encouragement of coopera tive buying and selling and in the full exten sion of rural electrification." Commenting on the "remarkable" address, the Columbia State of recent date, said; These policies in which Mi Willkie states his definite belief are New Deal policies, some out of the very heart of the New Deal Could any adminlQfcation receive higher praise than ance. h> li'L And Mr. Willkie ap prove_d_ul.su of afl jflrriiiitland short of war, and of selective service. Remove paragraphs of gen eral denunciation from the address, and it might be used by Democratic campaign orators. It was a strange political address. Old line, deeply sincere Republicans, the State imagines, suffered under it Here was their man describ ing himself as a liberal Democrat Isolationists alsp must have suffered. for here was their hope, the Republican candidate, doing precise ly what they?and he?condemned the Presi dent for doing, denouncing and threatening for eign powers. And Republican logicians un doubtedly suffered because the address had in it so many contradictions. The New Deal de clared Mr. Willkie "preaches the doctrine of division." That's not his doctrine, he said. But immediately after the impressive list of "I be lieves," that list of New Deal policies, the Re publican candidate reached this conclusion: "The purpose of all such measures (those he had approved) is indeed to obtain a better dis tributjon of the wealth and the earning power of the country." Mr. Willkie made no direct appeal to the rank and file of the Republican Party. He even avoided calling himself a Republican, and most of the former Presidents he praised, or seem ed to admire, were Democrats. In one sentence he grouped Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lin coln, Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt, and Wood row Wilson Not a word about the once idoliz ed (by big business) Cal Coolidge. Not a word, and for good reason about "Normalcy" Hard ing Not even a word?was there??about the only living former President, the relentless Lfighler .agamst the-New Deal, Mr Hoover. Probably Mr. Willkie believes the rank-and lile Republicans will go along, anyway, because | they have nowhere else to go, and that his ap peal must be mainly and pointedly to Demo crats and to independents This may be good strategy?if the regular party leaders do not become indifferent or resentful under the lead i ership of a man who does not do as they would i have hirri do If they do become indifferent, if the Republican organizations or machines fail to run smoothly, Mr Willkie will lose millions of votes. Will he gain more millions by his de parture from political technique? The answei will be known next November. The sharpest summery of the Willkie ad dress the State has seen tomes from Mr. Nor man Thomas, the Socialist candidate for Presi dent: "Mr Willkie made a speech," said Mr Thomas "which was a synthesis of Guffey's Kust Rentier, the genealogy of Indiana, the collected speeches of Tom Girdler and the New Republic. He agreed with Mr. Roosevelt's en tire program of social reform, and said it was leading to disaster. The peech was a class u; example of the time-honored principle of a stick of candy for everybody." That summary is more than sharp it also is intelligent. The address brought to mind some of those made by Mr. Landon, the Kepublican candidate in 1936. He. too, ran on a New Deal platform, from which he uttered hot criticisms of the New Deal. Mr Landon gave the country no real issue in 1936. Mr. Willkie gives it none in 1940. Not yet. anyway. Perhaps, as the cam paign develops, there will aA>e genuine differ ences between the two m^lr candidates on some important domestic matter pr on foreign policy. But today these lwo splendid gentle men are. close together in foreign policy and in political philosophy, and they seem close akin even in personalities. There are differences, of course, one of which is that President Roose velt has had thorough experience,in public life. Also President Roosevelt is the tallest remain ing symbol of democracy as a dynamic force that can take care of its own followers, and th,at is not afraid of its alien enemies. Tobarro Markrlinfi Muddlv Kvi'ii at it's best, tobacco marketing as it is advanced in this day and age, is bad. No criti cism is offered of any one. but as the observer watches the activities he can only see one big muddle. Certain phases of the marketing pro gram constitute what mav be termed a racket. The had situation is traceable to several sources, and only the fanner can clear up the situation Warehousemen, struggling to make a living, and it can be said right here that their Ijisk is not an easy one, offer certain induce ment's to certain groups Certain fellows, who would make money out of the farmer and the warehousemen, too, form contacts and haul to bacco to designated houses. Somebody must pay the bill, and nine times out of ten the far mer pays. The farmer whose tobacco is sold on act "off" day?is told that Ins tobacco was a lit tle loo high in order or something else was wrong By stretching the truth, the truckers ex plain away those bad sales and insist that more tobacco be delivered to a certain town and a certain house. It is the farmer's right to sell tobacco on any market or in any house he chooses, but he should get wise to some of the tricks that are pulled at his expense. Some plans, no doubt, are legitimate and work to the advantage of both the tobacco farmer and the warehousemen, but all plans should be scrutinized closely by the farmer before he agrees to pay out money that he could well save by serving himself. The Prayer of a Righteous Man.. By REV. JAMES H SMITH Pastor, Wllllsmston Memorial BaptiM Church When Aaron sinned in helping the Israelites make a golden calf for idol worship the Lord's anger was kindled against him and he was in danger of being destroyed by God's wrath. But Moses interceded to God in his behalf and Aaron was spared the destruction of the Lord's dis pleasured?Elijah. a man who could be terribly despondent at times and who, as James said, was subjecCTo like passions as we are, prayed earn estly that it might not rain and it rained not for the space of three and one half years. Then he prayed for rain "and it came to pass that the heaven was black with clouds and there was a great rathHezeklah was very ill and was told to make out his last will and testament, but as a result of sincere prayer the Lord added fifteen more years to his life. James said that the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he has committed sins, they shall be forgiven him (James 5:15). Jesus said: If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you (John 15:7). The President of the United States has set aside Sunday, September 8. as a day of prayer when Americans of every creed and denomination should ask God to grant to this land and to this troubled world a right eous and enduring peace. What a noble proclamation is this request for prayer. We believe the Lord wants us to have peace, but are we willing to accept and do His right eousness? The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16). This call to prayer for the salvation of our sons and our very civilization will put our righteousness to the test. More things arc wrought by pray er than this world dreams of. Where fore let thy voice rise like a foun tain for me night and day. For what are men better than sheep and goats that nourish a blind life within the b>ain, if, knowing God, they lift not hands of prayer both for themselves and those who call them friend? For so the whole r,ound earth is every way bound by gold chains about the feet of God." NOTICE OF SALE North Carolina. Martin County. County of Martin vs. Sudie Jones and W. W. Griffin.
