is more or less on the side-lines and
will not be directly affected by the
outcome of the proposed legislation,
other than having a genuine interest

The powers of advertising are too
strong and forceful to be used for
such purposes as increasing the use

While it ia generally conceded that
Henry A. Wallace stands little or no
chance of gaining the presidency via
the third party route, political ob
servers throughout the country have
professed astonishment at the huge
crowds which have thronged to hear
him on his current, lecture tour. In
some cities he has attracted more
listeners who paid admission fees?
in some instances, tickets were as
high as |6?than presidential candi
dates drew in campaign yean.
"This country believes in the right
of free speech and its people have be
come accustomed to hearing both
sides of issues debated openly. Since
there has been little pnblic criticism
of President Truman's foreign policy,
it seems probable that the crowds
Wallace is drawing are attending
primarily to hear him air his oppo
sition. Furthermore, it seems likely
that these people do not agree with
Wallace and remain convinced, after
his lecture, that President Truman's
firm staild is the right one.

SCHOOL AID AND THH

that the granting of a special privi
lege must not carry in its wake the
subsidising of it.
' Let me put it this way: Schools
exist in a democracy in order to de
velop its civic ideals, to transmit its
cultural "heritage, to mingle young
sters of every race and religion i
that they can live together. When
public funds are used, they are used
for these lanpssss Any religious

public school system can do so?at its
It can, if it wishes, develop not se
cular civic ideas, but supernatural.
It can, if it wishes, transmit not the
whole Western cultural heritage, but
a small section of it devoted to cer
tain "absolute truths." It can, if it
wishes, refuse to contaminate its
children by am tact with the commun
But if a church makes this choice
it must stand by it. It can scarcely
expect that the community will not
only allow the ? secession to take
place, but underwrite it with public
money. That is not a demand for
equality for the minority, but of
suicide for the community Itself. . . .
I sympathise with the plight of the
parochial schools. They need more
money, just aa every school does. /Un
der rising coats, they find it hard to
compete with the publicly supported
nonsectarian schools. They would
like to shift the burden of cost to the
community as a whole.
But if they do, it will mean that
all of us are supporting the schools
of a particular religious group. It
would mean that we are supporting
"an establishment-of religion." And
nothing in the Constitution is clear
er or wiser than that "Congress shall
make no law respecting an establish
ment of religion." ....
American teachers and schools and
kids need help today. If the paro
chial schools cannot maintain their
present burden, their children are al
ways welcome in the public school
system. It would be tragic if the in
sistence of one church group, how
ever powerful politically, were to
prevent a Federal aid bill from be

first impact of what will be the big

history of the United States.
That more people are traveling
more places and spending more

is primarily due to three basic rea
sons: ' -
1. There are mord accommodations |
available and better services.
2. The air, bus, and rail lines have

LABOR MARKET SHOWS
S|GNS OF SETTLING DOWN I
All indications point to to a set
tling down and increasing stabiliza
tion of the labor market in North
Carolina, according to a report is-1
sued by Henry E. .Kendall, chairman
of the Employment Securities Com-!
mission. . - ..
"Employment Security offices
throughout the- State report a con
tinued tightening-up of labor mar
ket whleh, on the whole, is benefi
cial," said Chairman Kendall. "Em
ployers are showing increased selec
tivity in hiring workers and there is
less turnover in employment as work
ers find suitable jobs and stick to
them." The long-promised, long-de
layed reconversion appears to be at
hand, according to employment trends
noticed in recent months.
Kendall stated that increased se
lectivity on the part of employers is
reflected in a slight drop in job place
ments made by the local' offices.
From 9018 in March, job placements
dropped to 8849 in April. "On the
other hand^* add Chairman Kendall)
"we see a rise in counseling" pter
views from 1864 in March to 1841 in
comparatively hew service offered by
the Employment Security Commis
sion, is an aid to
worker, or the one
placed^ in securing the work best
suited to his ability, skills and apti
tudes. The fact that workers are
using this service and are attempt
ing to find suitable, permanent jobs
rather than shifting from one job to
another in hit or miss fashion adds
much to increased stability of. the la
bor market picture."
The feet that March, which nor
mally shows an increase in employ
ment of .19 per cent above average,
saw approximately 4,000 workers
separated from their jobs in mass
layoffs is not alarming, according to
Chairman Kendall. "There can be
nothing even and smooth about a
naton's changing front war condi
tions to peace conditions," stated Mr.
Kendall. "There will, of course, be
certain bulges and upsets as some
plants in North Carolina, dependent
on orders from industries of nation
al scope which are located outside
the state, and which, in turn, are
dependent upon other industries to
supply vital parts of their products,
temporarily suspend production until
the orders start coming in again. But
on the whole,, onr reports show-that
a very healthy stabilizing trend is be
ing noted throughout the state."

DO NT NEGLECT TOUR LAYERS
In the springtime, when most poul
trymen are intent on getting their
young chicks off to a thriving start,
there may be a tendency on the part
of some to neglect the older stock
remaining on the farm. The. laying
flock still heeds constant attenion.
Give some special attenion to the
flock's quarters. After the long win
ter confinement, the laying house is
probably in need of a thor
spring cleaning. Do a 0
Job, and follow by using a
disinfectant.;.; * .\.
If the birds are being allowed out
of the house now, it may be a good
plan to keep them shut in during a
good part of the morning1 so that
most of their laying will have been
done before they venture outdoors.
This practice will keep eggs cleaner.
