THE DEBT WE OWE
by MRS. J. STEPHENS BROWN
We are a part of the civilization of an
Atomic Age whether we like it or not.
Our secret fears and misgivings are show
ing conspicuously in our general attitudes
towards our associates whether they are
members of our family or our general
public. Our personal reactions should be
a matter of serious concern because we
create around us an environment, pleas
ant or unpleasant, according to the per
sonality we develop.
Despite the fact that the business of
earning a living becomes more insecure,
and consumes more and more of our time
there must be included in our daily routine
some time in which we engage in social
living—the change of ideas, the making
of friendships, the understanding of human
relationships, the actual communion and
fellowship of fellow beings, whether fam
ily or friends.
Children are greatly influenced by the
emotional life of their elders. No wonder
crime is on the increase and children have
no anchorage! Their elders are frustrated
and fearful of what the future holds.
Hence, thew show their frustration, not
only in the home, but it is in evidence
wherever adults get together.
We have become intolerant of our
schools and what they teach, our minis
ters and what they preach, and our gov
ernment and who shall run it. We are
skeptical and irritable and we find every
opportunity to demonstrate our impa
tience with the whole society of which

MOORE COUNTY CLUBS
GET READY
For the past seven years the clubs of
Moore County have sent delegates to the
State Federation of Colored Women’s
Clubs. For just so long have these club
women looked forward to the time when
they could entertain the State Federation
in the Sandhills.
At the meeting in Kinston last year the
State Federation gladly accepted the in
vitation to hold the 1950 meeting in South
ern Pines as guests of the Charlotte Haw
kins Brown Chapter of Colored Women’s
Clubs.
Having the honor of entertaining the
State Federation has given the clubs new
and greater solidarity than was ever ex
perienced before. A change from the bi
monthly county meetings to monthly
meetings helped; meetings have been well
attended and much good work has been
accomplished through the unified efforts
of the club members. Meetings of local
clubs have been kept up.
Mrs. Edna B. Taylor, President of the
Moore County Federation, has given her
self wholly to the planning for the meet
ing in May, notwithstanding other civic
duties that made inroads on her time. Be
ginning with the meeting in September at
the Morrison Training School to the final
meeting May 17 in the West Southern
Pines High School, every effort is being
put forth to make this meeting of the
State Federation both enjoyable and pro
gressive.
Although the meetings are to be held
