inese are commentaries on a
subject of the greatest interest to
all thoughtful people, namely, whe
ther the third world war is going
to take place, and if so, when. The
general interest in the subject is
shown in a recent article by C. K.
Sulzberger which appeared in The
New York Times under the head
line, "Imminence of War Doubted
by Leaders of U. N. Ssession."
The writer gives reasons pro and
con as to the likelihood of war,
quoting military and other authori
ties. The conclusion, eppearing in
the headline of the article is, "No
sign of outbreak soon but are pes
simistic about the future." On
reading the entire analysis, the si
tuation presents itself to me like
the elements when the clouds are
thick and heavy and the tempera
ture unusually high and other me
teorological phenomena abnormal.
Under such conditions you know
that a change in the weather is
imminent, but it is not possible to
guess whether it will be mild, light,
severe, or catastrophic.
But in any event a competent
mariner doesn't wait until the
storm has struck before he trims
his sails. From time immemorial,
sea-faring men have been able to
anticipate bad weather by well
known signs. They are nearly in
fallible on preparing, but some
times the storm indicated peters
out before it strikes. Sometimes
it is more severe than anticipated.
But a good captain always pre
pares for the storm, whether it ma
terializes or not.
It is just as sure as anything in
this world can be, that Russia is
going to extend her power and in
fluence over Europe and Asia and
other parts of the world unless she
is stopped by force, or by weak
ness or impotence within her own
sphere. The corollary to this as
The United States cannot with
draw or dissociate itself from the
disturbance in the world that hsr
followed in the wake of wars, par
ticularly world war 1 and world
war 2, resulting in the possible
dominance of Russia if she is not
Since the United States cannot
withdraw and take a non-belliger-ant
position and since success In
any undertaking military or other
wise, is dependent upon prepara
tion, It follows that the . United

dous scale than ever before, whe

A petition for the abolition of
gambling at the greyhound dog
race track near Morehead City is
being circulated by ministers of
The petition, sponsored by the
Coastal Ministerial association,
which represents all Protestant
church groups in the county, was
brought to the attention of some
congregations Sunday morning.
The Rev. C. M. Mitchell, Atlantic,
chairman of the committee which
drafted the petition for the asso
ciation, said it is too early yet to
predict the response to their anti
Pastors have until Oct. 21 to re
turn the signed petitions to the
committee, Mr. Mitchell said.
The petition calls for action in
the general assembly by H. S.
Gibbs, Carteret county's represen
tative, and is aimed at the gamb
ling features of the dog track.
The petition rtads as follows:
"We, the undersigned citizens
and residents of Carteret County,
respectfully request of Hon. H. S.
Gibbs, member of the General As

for the repeal ol that part ol tne

posed "to all forms of gambling"
at its Sept. 13th meeting. The
Rev. T. R. Jenkins and the Rev.
W. L. Smith were appointed to a
committee with Mr. Mitchell at
that time to arrange for "approp
riate action" in the name of the
association on the issue of gamb
ling at the dog track.
In reporting back to the associa

plained that the circulation of the
petition is an effort "to put pres
sure on our representative to get
him to do something about it
"If our. effort tails yi .tjie Gen

have other plans."
Mr. Mitchell suggested that a
house to house canvass be made
by laymen of the various church

of the move from the pulpits.
The cemmittee chairman also
called for a delegation from the
association to call on Democratic
governor-nominee Kerr Scott at a
New Bern political rally today to
bring the association's stand on
gambling to his attention. The as
