A For the Sheriff .. .
Charges against the sheriff of Carteret county in the civil
suit in which Madix offiicals are defendants, have been dropped.
It was embarrassing for all of us to have one of the highest
public officials of our county connected with such charges as in
timidation, violence, and threatening a resident of the county
sp as to make it necessary for him to leave to protect himself
and his family.
Whether there was any basis for these charges only the
courts, in all fairness, could have decided. Nevertheless, for the
sake of the sheriff and the integirty of the better citizens of Car
tret, we hope that the old adage, "Where there's smoke, there's
"Hire," doesn't apply here.

' Air Force Day will be observed throughout the nation to
morrow. This marks the first anniversary of the Air Force as an au
tonomous military unit, completely separate from the Army and
Navy. The nation's first military air arm was established only
41 years ago, Aug. 1, 1907, and was then called the aviation sec
tion of the Army Signal corps. Since that time air power has
bridged the world, swept away horizons, and become an essen-
'itTIT.lial force in the military department of all nations.
In America the air force is a volunteer organization compos
ed of highly-qualified young men and of research t!.pnrtments
that through their untiring labor have made supersonic speed
possible, solved polar navigation problems and made other dis
coveries, making the United States Air Force second to none.
Yesterday was observed as National Guard Day. The Na
tional Guard of United States has a long and illustrious history
and holds as distinguished a place among our defense forces as
the Army, Navy, and Air Force.
In setting aside special days for recognition of national mil
itary units, the government aims to interest young men and wo
men in becoming a part of them, and show all citizens the role
jjhese units play in our national life.
In war or peace, they are our physical might. Our safety
lies in supporting them, morally and otherwise.
ON THE LEVEL 1
Turning Over a New Leaf?
To the state highway commission: thanks.
The reflector signs, 70 R, and 70 with an arrow pointing right
which have been placed on the highway just west of the Jeffer
son hotel help the motorist tremendously in navigating at night.
When we pointed out in an editorial two weeks ago that just
'"such signs were needed there, we never expected to get such fast
ction. It's a bit late, but maybe the state highway commission
is turning over a new leaf.
Thoughts for an open mind...
If I wish to make the world better, I must Wgin with myself.
There is no other starting point.
Beware lest your reforming be deforming to those natures you
do not know.
in making his way through life, a man will find it useful to be
ready and able to do two things; to look ahead and to over-
j look: the one will protect him from loss and injury, the oth
er from disputes and squabbles.
No one who lives among men should discard any person who has
his due place in the order of nature, even tho he Is wicked
or contemptible or ridiculous. Accept him as a fact the
necessary outcome of fundamental principle.
You have to live amongst men, allow everyone the right to exist
In accordance with the character he has, whatever it turns
out to be; strive to make use of this character In tuch a way
as its kind and nature permit, rather than to condemn it off
hand for what it is.
