Is School Begins
Eleven commandments for teachers:
. I . L.-l
I. Thou shalt have other interests Desmes my ncnwu
II. Thcti shalt not try to make thy children little images, for
they are a live bunch, visiting the wriggling of their cap
tivity upon you, their teacher, unto the kst weary moment
of the day; and showing interest and co-operation unto those
who can give them reasonable freedom from working.
Hi. Thou shalt not scream the names of thy children in irrita
tion, for they will not hold thee in respect if thou seream
est their names in vain.
IV. Remember the last day of the week, to keep it happy.
V. Humor the feelings of thy children thnt their good-will may
speak well for thoe in the little domain over which thou
VI. Thou shalt net kill one breath of stirring endeavor in the
henrt of a little child.
VII. Thou shalt not suffer any unkindness of speech or action to
enter the door of thy classroom.
?, VUl. Thou shalt not steal for the' drudgery of many "papers" the
precious nours inai snouiu oe given iu rrcii-uuun, uiii my
strength and happiness may appear unto all that come into
IX. Thou shalt not bear witness to too many "schemes of work,"
for much scattered effort is a weariness to the soul and a
stumbling block to weary fingers.
X. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's room, nor her children,
nor her manner, nor her system, nor anything that is thy
neighbor's, but work out thine own salvation with fear and
XI. Thou shalt lauh when it rains and wee, wooly ones muddy
the floor; when it blows and the doors bang; when little
angels conceal their wings and wriggle; when Tommy spills
ink and Mary flops a tray of trailing letters; when visitors
appear at the precise moment when all small heads have
forgotten everything you thought they knew.
And ag.in I say unto you, laugh, for upon all these com
mandments hang the law and the profits in thy schoolroom.
North Carolina Teacher (March 1928)
To the above we would like to add the following ten com
mandments for pupils:
I. Thou shalt honor and respect thy teachers.
II. Thou shalt not take advantage of their good nature and
patience by seeing how much thou canst aggravate them
before they becometh angry.
HI. Thou shalt respect school property, keep it clean and re
frain from marring or destroying it.
IV. Thou shalt treat books with care.
V. Thou shalt be obedient and honest at all times.
VI. Thou shalt come to school with clean face and hands, hair
combed, and neatly dressed.
VII. Thou shalt .follow th milw of' thffebwt whether ,tuou.
thinkest tbem foolish oft-m$ '
VI H. Remember that a cooperative 'sprrlt' Is1 greatly to be admir
ed and prized most highly.
IX. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's high marks, the ease
with which he solves math problems, or his popularity with
the others, but shalt always do thy best, working dili
gently and being of pleasant disposition.
X. Thou shalt not whisper incessantly, pass notes, throw spit
balls, or create a disturbance when the teacher leaves the
room, but at all times do only those things which are be
coming to young men and wOmeH.
The Honors Go to Dogs this
It has started again. With
m ance of Weeks. A week for this and a week for that. National
; Dog Week began yesterday and will continue through Saturday.
Cat lovers are seriously considering National Cat Week and if
there were enough cool fall weeks to go around, canary lovers
would probably be putting their bid in for a special recognition
of their yellow-feathered warblers.
As monotonous as the vetious weeks we are to experience
may seem, most of them have valuable objectives. Especially
National Dog Week. Of this year's three special objectives, the
third is most important to the general public: no stray dogs
every dog on public property must be on a lead under control of
a responsible person.
The latter part of that suggestion is one we frequently fall
to consider. Nothing is more amusing and yet can be more
dangerous than a small youngster calmly walking along the street,
"leading" a dog two or three times his own size.
The dog allegedly has a friendly disposition arid is "simply
wonderful with children," but it's been frequently noted that
dUgs which bite are claimed by their owners to be incapable of
hurting a flea.
Dog week leaders request this year that every dog also be
tralhed lh Obedience, to guard or do bther useful work, and that
all dogs bfe fed and fcarfed fdr properly under abnormal postwar
This year Is the 21st consecutive annual observance of Na--tional
Dog Week in the United States. When one thinks of the
vVva,uable work dogs have done id crime detection, during war-
flme, in saving lives of those they
ly being faithful companions to fickle humans, it's only fitting
j&hnt their contributions to our world be recognized.

It was not our intention to keep

but ye editor was of the opinion
that a travelogue would be of in

Leaving home by bus, we arrived
in Norfolk after a bumpy ride to

While standing by the boat rail
at Old Point our mind goes back
to the days of World War I when
we were located there with the

close of the war. The old land

the country where the flag flies

It was the bombardment of Fort
Mellenry by the British in 1314
that prompted Francis Scott Key
to write his famous ode "The Star
Spangled Banner" which later was
set to music and today is our na
tional anthem. This old fort was
established in 1794 as a U. S. mili

From the mountain top One can
see for miles across this valley

settled in 1763 by the Susqeuhan

had purchased the land from the

COOPERATIVES A hand
some cooperative grocery store for
Negroes opened i.1 Raleigh last
week in competition with regular
tax-paying establishments of this
kind. Also, the State Employees
Association, which holds its first
big convention at the Sir Walter
on Friday and Saturday this week,
now has a booming cooperative
store for members of this group.
It has been shown that each
time a cooperative store is set up,
under the present system of tax
ation, the government loses re
venue. Therefore.it seems strange
that employees of the government
who must receive their salaries
from the government would want
to be a partv to any move which
would bit the hand that feeds

SEPTEMBER The interna
tional situation seems to grow
worse by the day; food costs are
no lower; the polio epidemic is
subsiding very slowly; Dewey, Tru
man, Thurmond, and Wallace are in
a battle royal; and general confu
sion reigns in the nation and in
the world. But have you noticed
that the days are becoming short
er and that a light blue smoke
lies along the horizon and in the
distant woods at sundown?
Autumn is onlv a few days off,
and soon October will start roam
ing the land. These lines from
John Charles McNeill may, for
some reason, make you homesick
for something. "Heavy with sleep
is the old farmstead; the windfall
of orchards is mellow; the green
of the gum tree is shot with red,
the noplar is sprinkled with yel
low.". Yes . . . "for him who will seek
them, the valleys ;irc his fid the
far quiet hills of September."
GOING CRAZY Kerr Scott";
who will in all probability be your
next Governor, said here awhile
brck that of each ten families in
North Carolina, one has a mem
ber who should be in a mental
institution. Think of that. C. Syl
vester Green, editor of the Dur
ham Morning Herald, remarked
last week that' Scott's estimate was
probably an understatement.
Our asylums for the mrntally
sick rre packed .... despite the
great strides wc hr.'e made in this
respect in North Carolina during
the past decade. We still ha"e a
MORE! MORE! MORE!
long way to go.
If Governor Scott's and Dr.
Green's statements are correct, on
ly one conclusion can be drawn:
the number of mentally handicap
ped people within our institutions
is only a small percentage of the
number which should be in them.
BETTER SENSE Although
North Carolina Democrats are
faced with their toughest battle in
20 years, there is quiet confidence
ef ultimate victory. However, you
don'i find . . . and you won't find
. . . the reckless spirit which the
late 0 Max Gardner followed dur
ing his early speeches in the 1928
campaign. If memory serves cor
rectly, he spoke words to this ef-
TPeuj at&t chuj, mata and

in Performance with

"Worid'i Champion" engines

period, than any other automo
bile power plant built today!
You get ptrjorthante and
ptetauri . : ; thrills and thrljll
feet: "If you can't vote for Al
Smith, don't vote for me."
The Democrats loved Gardner.
They had given him the nomina
tion for Governor with no opposi
tion. Nevertheless, there was
strong feeling that even he should
not tie himself and the Democratic
Party of this State so irrevocably
to gravbl-vbiced Al. Bone-dry Bap
tist North Carolina was not look
ing too kindly upon the anti-prohibition
Catholic who had worked
his way, with the help of Tammany
Hall, from FuUon Fish Market to
Governor of New York State.
In short, Gardner changed his
tune, became Governor. This
State, horror of horrors, went for
Herbert Hoover. Our present-day
Democrats are not so cocky or
reckless as was Gardner. Car you
imagine Kerr Scott saying in one
speech or even in casual conversa
tion: "If you can't vote for Hurry
Truman, don't vote for me."
Scott has often been accused of
being a master of the reckless
statement. He isn't that reckless.
AND YET ANOTHER Many
a good book has come out of ex
periences of World War II. Now,
Richard Dillon Dixon of Edenton,
one of the judges who tried Nazi
war criminals, has settled down tb
the practice of law at his home,
Beverly Hall in Edento.n, and is
writing of his months of facing
the Nazis es they came to the bar
of justice. A very human fellow
and an experienced scribbler,
Judge Dixon might well come out
with a book which would prove
of real value not only as a histori
cal document but. as a guide for
future U. S. courts of this nature.
If he is smart, he will not make
many talks ,-ibout his trials in Ger
many, but, rather will follow the
late Columnist 0. 0. Mclntyre's
advice, to wit: "Don't tell it, Sell
