Peterson Wants Money Back.
Major George L. Peterson, formef
paymaster general of the North Caro.
lina National Guard, who was acquit
ted in Wake county court recently of
the charge of embezzling $7,G00 of
State funds has asked the State treas
urer for the return of this amount
which after his arrest and upon con
tinuance of his case to a later term
of court, he deposited with the State
as the amount pf the alleged shortage.
Major Peterson did not admit embez
zlement and tendered the check for
$7,600, as he stated in a letter to the
State treasurer "to prevent the bond
ing company from being forced to
pay over this amount." State Treas
urer Lacy replyling to Major Peter
son, informed him that there is no
provision in the law whereby the
money can be refunded and that leg
islative action will be necessary.
Major Peterson's letter to the State
"I have been expecting to receive a
check for $7,600 from you, being the
amount which was deposited with the
State treasurer in January, 1918, to
cover an alleged shortage in my ac
counts as State paymaster general,
but have not received same up to this
date. I sold my home and borrowed
funds to enable me to place this
amount with the State treasurer until
the matter should be settled by the
courts and to prevent the bonding

Large Audience at Monroe
Monroe Governor Bickett spoke on
War Savings and Liberty Bonds here.
The court house was filled and a large
ftumber of people were turned away
long before the arrival of the hour.
Music was furnished by a special choir
and the Icemorlee band.
In his speech, after analyzing the
selective service law, the governor
"But after all this law is simply an
other illustration of the saying of Solo
mon that 'there is nothing new under
the sun.' I was born and brought up
here in Union county, and I know Its
people. I know you are a working
people. Everybody works, including
father. You are a frugal people. You
believe in denying yourself something
today for the protection of tomorrow
You are a God-fearing people. You
read your Bibles and you go to
"Being Bible readers, you have
doubtless already discovered that the
first selective service law was given
by God Himself to Moses in the wil-.
derness of Sinai on the first day of
the second month of the second year
after the Israelites left the land of
"Under this law Moses was directed
to register for military service every
male person in Israel twenty years
old and upward, who was physically
fit to go to war. Numbers 1:1, 3.
The heads of the eleven tribes were
designated to assist Moses, the commander-in-chief,
in the administration
of this selective service law. Numbers
1:14, 16. This is identical with the
plan of the present law, which requires
the governors of the several states to
assist the president.
The Levites (the ministers of the
gospel) were excepted from the opera
tion of the law, and no one from the
tribe of Levi was called. Numbers 1-47.
The quota of each tribe (state) was
determined by the number of males in
the tribe over twenty years of age and
physically fit for war. Numbers 1-18, 45.
The total registration under this se
lective service law In Israel amount
ed ot 603,550 soldiers. Numbers 1-46.
Every tribe was called to serve un
der its own standards. Numbers chap
Those who stayed at home were re
quired to pay money (buy Liberty
Bonds). Numbers 111-45, 49.

til the next harvest no wheat prod

Mrs. Youtg declares that no hotel,
boarding house or home need suffer
because of the entire absence from

not in the least perturbed over the
The Zinzendorf . Hotel, which is
managed by Mr. A. H. Galoway, of
the hotel committee co-operating with
the Food Administration for North
Carolina, is banishing wheat products
from the Zinzendorf bill of fare also.
The Winston-Salem hotels are thu3
setting a model example for other ho
tels of North Carolina and it is expect-,
ed that a large number of boarding
houses and private homes of the city
will quickly fall in line and joint the

JUNIOR MEMORY VERSE I John 4?
I. The Stupidity of Selfishness, (vv.
30-S2). Jesus with his disciples is on
his way to Capernaum for the last
time. He is soou to leave for Jerusa
lem, where he is to die on the cruel
cross for the world's sins. He still
seeks the way of retirement in order
to be alone with his disciples, his ob
ject being to lead them into the appre
hension of the meaning of the cross.
The teaching which was interrupted at
Caeserea by Peter's rebuke is now re
sumed, and with tlefiniteness he de
clares the future event as already
1. "The Son of Man is delivered into
the hands of men."
2. "They shall kill him."
3. "He shall rise the third day."
While' pressing upon them continu
ously the fact and necessity of the
cross, he never failed to show them
the bright side--hls triumphant vic
tory over death ii. the resurrection.
The hearts of the disciples were so
steeped in selfishness that they failed
to understand his teachings. If the
disciples had more definitely attended
to his teaching concerning the cross,
they would have been better prepared
for the hour of temptation which was
so soon to overtake them.
II. The Wrangling of Selfishness,
1. The searching question (v. 33).
The omniscient Christ knew the se
crets of their hearts. The fact that
the disciples were wrangling about of
ficial position while the Lord was fac
ing humiliation and death for them
and the whole world, shows how com
pletely the Lord was alone in his sor
row. 2. The silent disciples (v. 34).
They were ashamed in his presence,
because the selfishness of their hearts
was revealed. To realize the presence
of the Lord would shame us of much of
3. The stinging rebuke (vv. 35-37).
"If any man desire to be first, the
same shall be last of all, and servant
of all." The greatest among men are
those who are willing to take the low
est place and serve others. This truth
he enforced In a concrete way by plac
ing a child in their midst. This child
was an illustration of dependence and
ignorance. By example and word he
shows that true greatness is expressed
by willingness to aid the weak, to in
struct the ignorant and to serve those
ia need. All such render service not
merely to those in need, but unto
Christ and God. True greatness, there
fore, consists not in selfseeking, but
rendering cheerful service to the
needy in the name of Christ.
III. The Intolerance of Selfishness
1. John's guilty conscience (v. 33).
In the light of the teaching of Jesus,
John was a little disturbed over having
"forbid" a worker for Christ who did
not follow after him. Doubtless this
intolerance was in part due to jealousy
for Christ, but also a selfish ambition.
Many times Christians mistake bigotry
for zeal for Christ.
2. Whom to tolerate (vv. 39-41).
(1) Those who are casting out devils
(v. 39). We should really satisfy our
selves that supernatural works are be
ing done. Are demons being cast out?
However, this is not final, as there is a
supernatural work not of God.
fJ) Those who are not doing this
vok In Christ's name (v. 41). Any
worker going forth in the name of
Christ, and for the glory of Christ,
should be given Godspeed. If he is
doing a good work, even though not In
your way, or if not a member of your
church or school, "Forbid him not."
IV. The Awful Issue of Selfishness.
Selfishness results in ruin to others
(v. 42), and also to the individual (vv.
43, 45 nnd 47). In either case the is
sue Is eternal torment in hell. Selfish
ness Is opposed to God, and that which
is opposed to God must be eternally
separated from him. Self-renunciation
should be so complete that we
should be willing to abandon the most
necessary and lawful things in life
hands, feet and eyes when they be
come occasions for stumbling either to
ourselves or to others.
Need of Influence.
"Every one of us needs influence
and some impulse outside of ourselves
to compel us to strive for our ideals.
The best impulse that can uplift the
'ife is the friendship of Jesus. lie
