(.rying \rrrl f ur II vrtliirhilr t hings Listing tlie needs that must he met before this nation can expect to butUi successfully for defense and prosper in the years to come, a lational leader placed books near the top of the list A return to religion occupied first place, but books were in a ranking position. Elaborat ing on those needs, the leadet was careful to say that it was not the trashy book, but the book with a meaning and a moral that was needed today and tomorrow The list of needs attracted more than pass ing attention because public-spirited citizens in Vlarttn County, citizens interested in the wel fare of their fellowman, are now cooperating in a library movement that is certain to make ivailable good books to the people m every rook and corner in the county. We have wandered far afield in our search 'or pleasures, and it is about time that we were iettling down and preparing our minds for the ihocks ahead It is.also time that we started Peking the real pleasures and stop our dash iere and there for mad excitement Those who told the public interest at heart can do no bet ?er thing just now than push forward for an mproved library service fbr all the people in Martin County. If ever there was a need for rood books and earnest readers that time is low. Sal jtsh There are those who refuse to compromise with criminals, and there are those few who will adhere to the truth and to what is right ev en though such action proves costly Sad as it may seem it is fast becoming the practice in this State to compromise with the criminal, the t rooked politician in the hope that our person al gain will be greatei Some will even go into the camp of the criminal and bow down to the detrimental whims of the law-breaker in the name of increased trade or indirect gain. " , A fairly well-known leader recently asked what good was accomplished by opposing the promotion of Bob Reynolds to the chairman ship of the United States Military Affairs Com mittee" As it turned out, the opponents to the promotion gained nothing, but one thing must be said in their behalf and that is they main tained for that which was right in their sight and did not compromise to an old custom of advancing the next in line to places of high im portance be he a leader, statesman, or a plain old jackass of the first water. We have gone so far from the truth and com mon decency that we will now gladly form a partnership with crime and crooked politics that a nickel or a dime might be gained for our own personal benefit. fiiai of Accitlfnli University News Letter. Traffic accidents cost North Carolinians more money each, year than it costs to operate the entire State-supported school system, accord ing to Konald Hocutt. director of the Highway Safety Division. "We art inclined to look upon the cost of highway accidents only in terms of human suf fering. twisted limbs and horrible death, while overlooking the economic aspect of the accident picture Last year, for example, the cost of traf fic accidents in North Carolina reached up wards ul $'Jj.UIHl.OOO. This sum included all costs of hospitalization, doctors' bills, repairs and re placement of damaged vehicles, working time lost by accident victims, and an estimated val uation of $0,000 placed on each life lost." Traffic accidents cost North Carolina indus tries a pretty penny, too, Hocutt said, pointing out that the average compensation costs paid to industrial workers involved in traffic acci dents m connection with their work is higher than that in any other type of accident in in dustry. and that the average number of days Inst as a result of traffic accidents in industry is greater than that in any other type of acci dent. "Yes, highway accidents cost more than hu man suffering, tears and anguish Accidents cost North Carolinians inanv millions of dollars each year And while it may be true that much of this cost is borne by insurance companies, we all know that these companies are not in bus mess for their health, and the cost of these ac cidents ultimately must be borne by all policy holders." II North Carolina drivers are not concerned over their safety, consideration for their pock etbooks ought to prompt them to drive more carefully. Most of the critical things in life, which be come the starting points of human destiny, are little things. Robert P. Smith. ? _News that Italy lias devised a process of mak? ing wool out of milk must make the cows feel rather sheepish. Philadelphia Bulletin. The Texas small bov who swallowed 30 cents and coughed up a dime will do for a slot ma chine. as the proportions are the same Char lotte -_CV Bi<r Increase In Production Needed An increase of at least 0 per cent (10 million cases) is needed in egg production this year to meet the re quirements of the National "Food for Defense Program." including sup plies to be exported under the Lend Lease Plan. Prof Roy E Dearstyne, head of the State College Poultry Depart ment. says poultrymen will be mak ing a valuable contribution to the program by taking good care of eggs on the farm. Farmers also should im prove methods of feeding and make full use of poultry equipment, he said. "Carelessness in handling eggs for market lost 5 per cent of the Unit ed States' egg production in 1939," Prof. Dearstyne declared. "This loss represents 175 million do/en eggs, with a cash value of about $30,500. 000. Careful handling means more eggs for food supplies for this coun try and other democracies, and ad ditional income for poultry produc ers." The steps in producing quality eggs, and more of them, are simple and can be followed on eVery farm without additional expense, the State College-.ieader stated. The steps in clude: 1. ProSSde the flock with the prop er quality feed for good eggs. 2. Keeping a deep, clean litter on the poultry house floor, and confin ing the birds in the house until noon if needed 3. Providing plenty of clean nests, at least one to every five hens. 4 Producing infertile eggs for the market. This will require removal +>f male birds from the flock as soon as the breeding season is over. 5. Gathering eggs frequently, to reduce the number of dirty eggs. ti Cooling eggs as soon as they are gathered, to as near 50 degreed as possible, to prevent spoilage. Never place warm eggs in the case. Latin America Lines Spread Axis Gospel The charge that German and Ita ian-dominated airlines in Latin Air erica are an arm of the axis air fore on political missions in this hem sphere is made by C. V. Whitnej chairman of the board of Pan Arr erican Airways. He has learned. 1 says, that every Fascist pilot is coir milted to spread axis political got pel, and says it is an open commei cial secret thut many of the axis ah lines are highly unprofitable entei prises, kept afloat only by subsidit from Berlin and Rome. Mr. Whitne: one of the founders of Pan Amer can. says that up to the beginning c 1941.'nine axis-controlled airline were still operating without hindei ance over strategic routes of Sout America. These planes, he adds, fl a total of 21.762 miles and are linl ed directly with Berlin and Rome b the Italian transatlantic airlin which regularly crosses the Sout Atlantic to the coast of Brazil. Public Must Be Beady To Crimp Must strongly-worded warning yet, given public as to need for being ; ready and willing to crimp on stan dard of living in order to help de fense is that of W L Batt. deputy di rector of production division of OPM He stated "very simply" his opinion that "we cannot produce the vast quantities of fighting equipment that must be produced, and at the same time preserve our standard of living in' terms of automobiles and electric conveniences and leisure hours." He pleaded for hustling ahead on all fronts?managerial, labor, govern mental?to gel tilings done, let wage, tax. jurisdictional and all other ad justments be worked out afterwards, so that quibbling over them wouldn't delay defense work. Finally, he said wc must "beware of self-congratula tion. and we must avoid the compla " cent notion that all is going well."
