Dear Three P's:
For the past six. months I i
have been reading magazine and
newspaper articles on our gov
ernment and way of life. I
have noticed a continual refer
ence to the fact that our gov-'
eminent and way of life is so- ■
cialistic and that we are facing
an increased amount of creep
ing socialism. I have a job,
I am free to go and come as I
please and as far as I am con-'
cemed I do not see where we :
are socialistic. What is social
ism anyway and can you ex
plain in what way we are social
To go into your question thor
oughly would require more
time, effort and space than this
column and its staff can give.j
However, an attempt will be!
made to explain some of the,
causes which give rise to some I
of the assertions that you may
have read. First we must rec
ognize one fact that in all civili-,
zations there are the weak, the 1
indigent and the needy and in 1
any healthy civilization there is'
recognized the moral responsi
bility of the strong to see that i
these people are given proper i
help and support. Then again
in referring to certain trends in'
our government and economic
life that writers claim to be
socialistic, this column is not
taking any position as it would
lead to unending debate and ar-!
Socialism may generally be,
defined as the governmental j
control of all economic activity!
to the end that competion may
be eliminated and cooperation
take its place to the end that
all opportunities of life and the
rewards of economic effort may
be equally divided among all
of the people. This is opposed
to' individualism in which an
may risk this time,
effort and capital to promote a
business, give employment and
leap whatever rewards he may
wider competitive conditions. If
he loses, it is his bad luck and
not that of the government or
taxpayer, which it would under
socialism. Another way of de
fining socialism is the taking
away from those according to j
their abil.tv to produce and j
giving to others according toj
Let us consider some of the 1
things that it is alleged tend!
toward socialism. Social Se
curity is one of the phases of.
Governmental activity which it
is claimed as socialistic. So
cial Security in principle is a
good idea if it were based on
sound actuarial tables. If So
cial Security were planned on

T Commercial fishing t>iays as important role is ik
economy and the lives of many North Carohniass lav.
ing along our coast. Fishing for fin-fish and shell fish
is a multi-millon dollar business employing thousands
on both sea and shore. In another category are ocean,
going vessels that follow for days the vast mesbfcka
schools for fish meal, which is also big business.
The major shore installations for icing, packing, proc
essing and shipping the commercial catch off die Cato*

though the present rates have
been increased it is doubted that
| the rates ate sufficient to pay
for itself. This is especially so
since Congress frism time to
time increases the benefit re
gardless of the premiums be
ing paid. There is no one on
Social Security today who has
paid for the benefits received,
with the result that the month
ly checks come from those now
employed and the employers or
the taxpayer, This will be in
creasingly so as the monthly
payments -ate increased from
time to tinie by Congress, Tb

has not paid for the benefits

Then there are the various
benefits and payments under the
Veterans Administration, It Isas
been stated that there are mote
people receiving benefits under
the various Veterans Acts who
never fired a pop gun than
those who actually went through
hell during the past several
wars. Then recently Congress
passed a pension and health bill
providing for pensions ta those
who have served ninety days,
within certain income limita
tions, and to their dependents.
Also the Government provides
for health and hospital treat
ment for ailments and injuries
not service connected which al
so include? the family of the
ninety day veteran. This is far
from the old concept that a citi
zen owed his services to his
country in time of trouble or
war- without regard to pensions.
To the extent that pensions
and health services ate granted
to peepie who itever performed
any service other than wearing
a uniform for a minimum o,
ninety days, it is socialism to
There are numerous othesr
Governmental activities Which
fall within the same class such
as Unemployment Relief, which
is being misapplied in many
ways; for instance payments
made to college students, who
may have temporary weak sn
the summer and go to college
in the Fall and Winter: or sea
sonal workers who do not seek
work when their seasonal work
is comoleted: or to entployed
pregnant women who leave their
employment for their aoeot.-eh
rnent. Then there is the mini
mum wage law which plays
havoc economically with busi
ness and it is threatened to in
crease the minimum to one dol
lar and a half per hour. Pub
lic Housing is claimed to be
socialistic for rhe housing s
subsidized, does not nay tax
load and the rents are below
the economic rent to carry the
cropertv. Oihcr taxpayers pay
for this public housing. Then
there are the various business
enterprises in which the Gov
ernment is eng. god st the ex
pense of the taxpayer and in
which the Government is in
competition with five enterprise,
such as the Tennessee Valley
autho’-itv. Th's Authority does
not pay any real estate taxes.

Dear Three P's:
My daughter has become
pregnant and is not married.
The man is well known in the
community but neither are in I

and and 1 have been discussing
the situation as to whether they '
should be married when they do,
not love each other. Do you
have any suggestions' 1
The orob'em is not your |
daughter and the man involved
but the child. There is a legal
aspect as well as a social as
pect. The child should have a
name, should have a legally rec- 1
egrured father, outside the court
decision as to Daternity. Social
ly the child should have a rec
ognised father so that it will
grow up normally without an
emotional handicap. You should
arrange a meeting with the man
and discuss in an amicable wav
the responsibilities to the child.
A marriage should be arranged
which will give the child a
moral father and supoort. A
divorce later on can be ar
