TIME FOR MORATORIUM ON
There is something revolting about
the fact that in this day and time,
when jobs are going begging and a
crying need for worlcen exists
everywhere, some persons are collect
ing unemployment compensation
benefits. No honest, upright citizen
begrudges the payment of benefits to
unemployed who have made con
scientious efforts to obtain work and
who are liable to suffer unleqs
financial assistance is obtained from
some source. But reports have come
to us that it is a common practice
for able-bodied workers to quit jobs
and make false representation which
enables them to "qualify" for pay
The unemployment agencies were
born during the depression and con
stitute one of the great strides the
nation made in social legislation.
To repeal this legislation would be
a step backward and heaven forbid
tliat it ever be done. Abuses, how
ever, should not be tolerated and the
strong arm of the law should- lash
out furiously at those who falsify in
order to receive payments. It be
hooves every law-abiding citizen to
notify the unemployment agencies
of any cases in which persons are
illegally getting checks.
It occurs to us that it might be
wise to declare a general moratorium
on unemployment payments. Let the
funds pile up and be paid when jobs
are at a premium. If those lean
years never come, then turn the
money over to schools and churches
because every day we are becoming
more and more convinced that educa
tion and religion, coupled with
plenty of hard work, are what this
nation of ours needs.
NOT LACKING -COURAGE
Not even Pandora's Box could
have held as many plagues and evils
as have popped up daring the office
tenure of President Truman, the
man who did not want to be presi
dent and who, at the 3tart of his
administration, humbly told the
Congress and the people that he
needed their help in order to fulfill
the duties of the most important
office in the world.
Last Fall and Winter when the
United States seemed to be groping
for a sound foreign policy and the
nation was not taking the lead, as
other countries expected us to do,
in formulating a permanent peace
program. President Truman's stock
dipped and such slurring quips as,
'To err is Truman," were bandied
back and forth, and cartoonists of
opposition newspapers 'ribbed him
as one who lacked courage and did
not even know his own mind.
The President seems to have in
creased in stature in recent weeks
arid a soft pedal has been applied to
the uncomplimentary remarks which
no longer are popular. Placed on
his desk have been two strongly
backed bills which he vetoed and
sent back to Congress. First of these
was the Case Bill. Then came the
emasculated OPA Bill. With these
vetoes, the President sent mesaag
outlining his reasons for disapprov
ing the proposed legislation. His
reasoning was sound and generally
was praised by the press and citizen
The unpretentious, humble map
is more capable than be admitted
and, along with sympathy, deserves
praise for the courage be has dis
played in fulfillment of his duties.
Hi# very humbleness was evidence of
courage and recalls to mind these
lines from James Russell Lowell:
"The wisest man could aak no more

Although it is too bite to use

lever too late to plan for the future,
rhe main crops recommended are
listed as follows:
Soybeans: Any leafy variety,
iown in narrow rows, is good. Use
a bushel of seed per sere.
Lespedesa: While this is not the
best grazing crop, it can be used to
advantage except in dry periods.
Kudsu: A new plant for hog graz
ing and one that gives excellent re
sults when properly used.
Alfalfa: This king of the hay
crops is very satisfactory for hog
grazing. It can be grown on any
well drained soil, but due to its a
grvwlh must be fertilised
heavily with lime, phosphate and
Tadino Clover: Another new plant
which makes an excellent growth

For winter grazing, rye grass and
crimson clover are still the best we
have. They should he sown early,
seeded heavily, 16-20 pounds of clo

per acre, and fertilised liberally.

The rains cams . , ; The epidemic
of rains which came with July has
thrown a shadow on the fishing
picture in Borne sections of the
State, especially in the east, but
there are still some bright spots.
Robeson county comes up with a
"first" for the distaff side. Miss
Lois Kinlaw caught a 16-inch hick
ory shad in Lumber River with Hook
and line. This was the first shad
ever caught that high up in the Lum
ber, according to E. W. Came, fish
and game protector.
The waters of Catherine Lake
yielded a black bass weighing nine
and a half pounds, 27 inches nu
girth, reports Protector Lonnie
Koonce of Onslow county.
Up in the mountains there were
reports of fine catches of rainbow j
trout. Wayne Rogers of Waynee
ville took one of 24 inches and one
of 19 1-2 inches, and Charles M.
Crook of West Asheville, Route 3,
brought in a string of^ eight averag
ing 18 inches in length and nine
pounds in weight.
Rogers had a real battle with hid
24-inch rainbow, wnich he took from
Cataloochee Creek. It took him 20
minutes and the help of others in his
party to bring in the big boy. He
was fishing with Floyd Woody of
Canton, and Hugh Rogers of Clyde.
Less than an hour's fishing gave
Crook his good string which he took
from Frozen Lake, near Rosman.
