Turmluy. 4/tril IV tl. lime Ttt If ake I /< Having spent the better part of-two years talking and dickering it is now time for the people of this nation to wake up and go into action In a complicated democracy such as ours, it is hard to tell just where, when and how to act Our progress in the past eighteen months has been so limited that we should now recognize something is wrong and that it is high time to correct that something. Here we arc. twentv months after Hitler threw his first challenge to the civilized world, without a unified course to follow The lund berghs. Wheelers. Nves. Clarks. Reynolds and other leaders in national affairs pulling every ounce at their command 111 opposition to the wishes of the vast majority of American peo ple That m itself is one of the greatest draw hacks to our march of progress The old profit motive the wild thing that took a greater toll in suffering and want than possibly the last war is to the front again Eew contracts, if any, have been let without the cost plus clause being written into them in big let ters The very fact that contractors and man agement can guarantee themselves a profit is recognized as the bone of contention in labor ranks As long as we are willing to guarantee management a profit we may just as well guar "antee every working man a profit But what we are doing today is guaianlet'mg contractors? a profit, and turning on labor with an iron hand and with heated condemnation for his acts It is yet to be proven outside the dominated press that labor has delayed defense work more than management A fair idea of America's attitude toward tie fense can be gained right here in out own back yards How many local people have volunteer ed their services in the name of defense alone'' Every man going from lu re to the army centers wasn't interested in bow much he could do to aid defense, but he was interested in how much he could get. weakly hoping that possibly a few manual" strokes would aid defense along the rugged road it apparently must travel. We. right here at home, have set back and criticis ed everybody else. But what have we done to aid defense? Nothing, absolutely nothing. The time has come to wake up and to act Possibly it is not exactly clear what we should do and how we should do it, but until we, the everyone of us, turn from our erring ways and .recognize defense above all other things the fu ture will continue draped in darkness One C.untolaliun As the hundreds of thousands of high school graduates go 'out from the nation's high schools this year, many to enter a complex business world without further education, they have one consolation. It is indeed apparent that no matter what they do and how they do it, they can make no bigger mess of the world than the one in which it finds itself in right today During the past eleven years or so, the 1941 graduate has been drille dpnmarily in the ways of making money Well and good, but the graduate has been drilled primarily in the evaluate the principles of fairness and honesty in his walk through life and to recognize the all-important fact that a Christian character is to he chosen above riches. Kach commencement, despite the dark war clouds and spirit of unrest or other disconcert ing facts, brings a renewed hope, a hope found ed on the youthfulness and ability, of young men and women as they make ready to enter upon life's journey as citizens and as integral parls m the vast wheel that grinds out events good and had. We extend our best wishes to the young graduates and hope for them the best there is in life, 1/ l.rnst ll Ixn'l Slealinn Speaking from behind his mahogany desk a few days ago, a big business executive boldly declared that the tax pressure could be great ly relieved by eliminating the Civilian Conser vation Corps and the farm "give-away" pro gram The declaration is enough to cause one's hlootl to hnil and to question The sincerity ot the " person making such a statement. Let all men know and understand that what the American farmer has received under the AAA program has been earned, that he by all that which is right and just is entitled to every penny a Ihuughtful administration has seen fit to place into his hands At least, the American farmer has not nibbed his fellowman. When the executive's plan to eliminate the CCC and the farm "give-away" program is ef fected. then let the lobbyist's chair in the seats of government be removed Let the tariff come oil all goods the farmer buys Let the laborer in the factory sell his services and soul for what ever price the industrial leader will offer. When these and other policies tending to equalize all effort in America are effected, then the busi iaexecutive inn turn his index fingi r to tin ? government and demand that the farm "give away'.' program be eliminated Until that is done, let the well-earned soil conservation and parity payments continue to the farmer and in cvci increasing amounts ? //ig/i f.iwi of killiiif! * To kill a soldier it cost in Caesar's time a paltry 7!i cents; in Napoleon's day, $3,000; and during the World War, $31,000. But with Am reica's defense budget already soaring up into the 30 billions of dollars, it is costing us more than $31,000 per to keep from having any of our soldiers killed and well worth it The Mc Dowell News A War, A Marriage, And a 1500 Acre* Land Grant Cause The Settlement Of The Cape Fear . . Soon after North Carolina's first town was settled the Tuscarora In dians formed into small bands and dispersed themselves, as if they were friends, throughout the new settle ments. On September 22. 1711, the Indians fell upon the unsuspecting planters and began a terrible mas sacre More than a hundred settlers were killed in less than two hours. The strength of the Indians was not broken until Colonel James Moore arrived from South Carolina with thirty-three whites and a thous and friendly Indians. On March 20, 1713. he attacked the Indian strong hold. Fort Nohoroco. After three days' fighting he captured the fort and took 392 prisoners and 192 "scalps ' Others killed and burned ran the estimated Tuscarora loss to approximately 800 Soon afterward, the greater part of that powerful tribe moved up the Roanoke River and later joined their kinsmen in New York. They became the sixth nation there ? As soon as the fort was taken many of the South Carolina Indians hurried home to sell their prisoners When Colonel James Moore re turned to his native state, his broth er, Maurice, remained. Major Maur ice Moor;e courted the widow of Col onel Swann. and their marriage unit ed him with one of the strongest fam ily connections in the colony. He was a brother in-law of the great plant er, Edward Moseloy. and took an active partTn the affairs of the prov ince. The traveling between North and South Carolina made the people ac quainted with the opportunities along the Cape Fear. Major Maurice Moore became interested in estab lishing a plantation along the banks of the lower Cape Fear River Earl ier settlements in this.region known as the county of Clarendon had failed and a New England group had spread evij reports of both the soil and the harbor.- Nevertheless, Moore secured a giant dated June 3. 1725. for 1500 acres on the west bank of the river. 16 miles below the pres ent town of Wilmington This was the first known grant in that region. Major Maurice Moore laid out a town he called Brunsw ick and invit ed settlers to locate there. The Ma jor's brothers, Roger and Nathaniel, came from South Carolina. Thus the settlement of the Cape Fear region was due in part to the Indian wars which caused the Moores to traverse those lands, and to the romance that made Maurice Moore a permanent settler in the north state, and to the 1500 acre grant secured for him and his friends. Carolina.. Bird - Lore The Brown Thrasher Has the Brown Thrasher come to your garden for the summer? If you live in the east, you probably have had the good fortune of having him all winter and possibly so if you live in central Carolina. The thrasher is a common bird, and most gardens can boast of a nest in the hedge ? near- the ground in some bush This bird is a masterly songster, and when it sings it is usually from a topmost branch of a tree where "in a fine frenzy of inspiration" it gives out notes that are loud and clear though not quite as rich in quality as the mockingbird's for which it is of ten mistaken Several years ago. I was aroused at dawn by a friend with much musical training, who could not resist coming to my room at that hour for field glasses to try to identify the bird that could give such a performance as she was hear ing She returned with a description of a Brown Thrasher. The thrasher is a little larger than a robin and slimmer. He is blight rufous-red above with streaked un derpaid unlike the wood thrush, with w hom beginners often confuse him. The thrush has a bright brown upper parts and a spotted breast and sides Another distinguishing mark is the thrasher's very long tail The two other of our birds belong ing to the same family are the mock ingbird and the catbird.
