Three Years After V-J Day
Thursday three years ago , World War II ended. But ob
servance of this occasion was different than those usually por
trayed in movies and novets when a great nation celebrated a
:'3 Church doors opened and multitudes entered to offer pray
ilers of thanksgiving and to ask for guidance on the hard road we
;:knew was ahead of us. There was merrymaking, too, but the
"long war, the deep heartaches caused by loss of thousands on the
i field of battle, and the debut of atomic warfare, made sobriety a
'predominant note on that day following Japan's surrender to the
.Allies on the battleship Missouri.
'! Today some claim we have lost the peace. Perhaps we have
lost a few battles in this period called "peace," but if writers
and speech makers are going to draw a true parallel between
war and pace they must remember that losing our battles in the
first years of the war did not mean defeat.
Moral strength is indeed harder to muster than brute force.
The relentless activity, determination, and patriotism that turn
ed United States into a fighting machine that swept the enemy
helplessly before it 7s dangerously absent in these days when vic
tory can be attained only fhrough mustering of superior mental
capabilities and development of deep faith in a system of gov
ernment for the entire world.
It's too early to say we have lot the peace. In these times,
which we don't deny are perilous, it would be well to recall those
words of John Paul Jones, uttered under different circumstances,
but relevant to the present, "We've just begun to fight." To weep
now over losing the peace is defeatism.
Game Called on Account oi . . .
The Softball games scheduled Sunday between Morehead
City and Ocracoke didn't come off. Morehead City Jaycres were
going to go to the island Sunday in the Air Lapwing and return
Say the Ocracokers, "They knew they were going to get beat,
so they didn't show up." How about it, boys?
Thoughts for an open mind...
Whether we are in a pleasant or a painful state depends, ulti
mately, upon the kind of matter that pervades and engrosses
Aristocracy is of three kinds: (1) of birth and rank; (2) of wealth;
and (3) of intellect. The last is really the most distinguish
ed of the three.
Set limits to your wishes,, curb your desires, moderate your ang
er, always remembering that an individual attains only a
share in anything tbaj is wprth having; and that, on the oth
er hand, everyone must Incur many ills of life; in a word we
must bear and forbear.
A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner.
The way to harden the body and develop the intellect is to im
pose a great deal of labor and effort upon them in the days
of good health, to exercise them both as a whole and in their
several parts, and to habituate them to withstand all kinds

With F. C. SALISBURY, Morehead City
Persons visiting Morehead City
from up state as well as outside
the state are at a loss to under
stand how the city was ever given
the right to promote a dog racing
With pari-mutuel betting while no
other city Jn the state has such a
privilege. Other cities of the state"
have awakened to the fact that
Morehead City in some way stole
march on them at the 1039 ses
sion of the State Legislature and
are beginning to ask why such ,a
privilege cannot be granted them.
' t is anticipated ttyit several re
sort cities, of the state will flood
the coming State Legislature with
bills asking that racing track pri
vileges with pari-mutuel betting be
granted them. It will behoove the
Carolina . Racing association to
maintain a strong lobby at the
next session of the Legislature to
protect thejr monopry.

Sidewalk observers who watching
the construction of the new tele
phone exchange on 9th street have
been at a loss to ktiow the reason
for the deep hole which has been
dug in the center of the site and
the stacking of bricks and bags of
cement on timbers placed' over the
hole. According to the boss man
a test is being made to determins
the condition of the soil on which
the foundation of Jhe new building
will be erected.
After excavating to the depth
that will be required for the foun
dation, a large platform has been
placed on the bottom of the pit
with a frame work of timbers
reaching above the ground on
which has been placed several
thousand pounds of weight. A
check is made each day to deter
mine how much the weighted base
has settled. From these readings
engineers will be able to work out
the style of base needed for the
Governor Cherry. In a procla
mation has set aside September
2 third anniversary of the end
of World War II "as a force
ful reminder of the terrific price
paid for victory." He urged
North Carolinians to observe a
30 second period of site mfe,
starting at 8:59 a.m. that day and
"otherwise give fitting tribute to
thesB who achieved victory."

As a young man of 28, Macon
was elected to the Continental Con
gress, but declined to serve. In
1791-1815 he was a member of the
national House of Representatives,
and in 1826 28 of the United States
Senate, serving as president pro
tern of that body. He was leader
of the House during most of Jef
ferson's two terms and its speaker
during the session 1801-1807,
Through native ability and un
canny genius of understanding the
small farmers who made up the
bulk of North Carolina's popula
tion. Macon personified the homely
virtues and provincial sentiments
of the state and dominated its po
litics for a full generation. s
Macon died at his Buck Spring
home in Warren county on January
29,1837, at the age of 79. His pld
log home has been preserved by
the State Historical Society. Near
by the home is his grave, marked
by a granite slab recently erected.
For more than a century his grave
marker was only that which in his
great simplicity requested, a pile
of rock upon which countless vi
sitors have in turn dropped a stone
in appreciation of the man's greatness.
While the old fort today bears
his name, as do a college and a
county, and the history books of
thr state exploit his poltical acti
vities for over a half century, yet
