being written the administration
- has changed hands. I don’t feel
any sudden upheaval, and the
skies are not split with thunder
and lightning. Despite who’s at
the helm, the old Ship of State
will continue to sail on, and
the Union will ride the seas
of world unrest on a more or
less even keel. It all depends
on how Captain Kennedy works

Much emphasis is put on
leaving estates, trust funds and
other types of holdings to help
young people get a start in life
when they reach adulthood and
rightly so. But it is of equal im
portance that the young people
also have their good health if
they are to lie successful in their
life's endeavor. Certainly an
ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure when it involves
protecting the health tvf our
youth. It is up to us as par-

about the awareness of the im-1

devise the necessary ways and
means of making good health a
reality among the boys and girls, i

Tourists visiting in North Carolina often com
ment on our excellent highways, and for good
reason. North Carolina citizens now enjoy the
largest state-maintained road system in the na
tion-more than 70,000 miles in all! And our
state-wide program continues unabated, provid
ing additional hard-surfaced roads to make mar
kets more accessible to farmers and to transport
workers to their jobs in nearby industries.
Another system gaining wide-spread approval
in North Carolina is that of the “legal control”
of the sale of beer and ale, which has been
adopted by most ol our progressive communities.
