AH APPEAL BY THE GOVERNOR.
To the People of North Carolina:
The week of June 10-16 has been
designated as National Recruiting
Week*, for tha United States Marine
Corps. Four thousand enlistments
have been called for during that
week. This number of recruits, '
am informed, are absolutely neces
sary in order th.it tins efiici.-nt
branch of the Nation's military ser
vice may do the job assigned to it
now with the same thoroughness
and high degree of efficiency as
has marked the Vork of the Ameri
can Marines on every »,ea anil in
every land from 17!>S crucial
North Carolina's quota of recruits
needed is only 70. Of this number
. the Raleigh recruiting statim is
asked to/furnish 15 men; the Dur
ham recruiting station 15 men; the
Winston-Salem recruiting stall in 20
mon; and the Charlotte recruiting
station 20 mon.
1 call upon the peopl,• of these
four cities anil of trie whole State
to rally to tho Marine Corps during
the week designated. Indeel, it
ought not to require a w.'ek, a
day should be long enough to raise
the State's full quota of r.-cruiU
for this great arm of our country *
Tho Marine Corps is one of the
oldest and most efficient branches
of the military service, and any
young man should count himself
fortunate to be enlisted in it. The
Marine is a soldier and sailor too
I The advantages he has in the. va
riety of experience and training
1 are unexcelled, lie is drilled as an
r infantryman; ho is trained as a
. navaj gunner; he becomes a good
lield artilleryman; and he learns to
I manipulate tho machine gun. lie
is in the landing party from war
r ships and i s the first to go on ex
peditionary duty. Surely the young
man who. wants to serve his eoun
-3 try in the hour of need cannot find
j a better place to render effective
sorvieo than In the United States
' Marine Corps among the soldiers
' that go to sea to defend the rightH
l of Americans and maintain the lion
. or of tho Plug throughout tho
I, therefore, urge the young men
' of North Carolina to present theni
- selves at the various recruiting
; stations in tho State to volunteer
! for this serv ice on the morning of
Juno 11th. I tiliicerely hope that
the young manhood of the State
will respond quickly to this call
that North Carolina will be able to
report her full quota rai* d in a
i single day.

live without feeding upon the ele

There is even a far greater need
for a vital relationship between
the school and community. Be
cause the school exists for the
community and therefore the com

working for the school. It is h

by the teacher going among the

hands and heart wide open ready
to serve and to help. She cannot
do this and go to some show in a

Memory Verses, 26, 27—Golden,Text,
I Cor. xv, 3—Commentary Prepared by
Rev. D. M. Bteerns.
I'llate seems to have tried again and
again to release Illm, and big wife
also sent blm word to have nothing to
do with that Just man, for she had
suffered many things In a dream be
cause of Him (Matt, xxvll, 19). Peter
testified after Pentecost that Pilate
was determined to let Him go (Acta
111, 13). He evidently thought when
be asked them to choose between
Christ and Barabhaa as to which be
Bhould release unto them that they
would surely ask for Christ. But they
cried out, "Not this man, but Barab
bas,'' although Bnrabbas was a robber
and murderer (chapter xvlll, 40; Acts
111, 14). Pilate's fear to touch Him in
creased when the Jesus His
crime was that He said He was the
.Son of God (verse 7). When Pilate
asked Illm about tbls Jesus at first
mode no reply, but n little later said
to blm, "Thou couldest have no power
against Me except it were given thee
from above; therefore he that .deliv
ered Me unto tliee hath the greater
sin" (verse 11).
The first part of this reply must re
fer to the will of God, the determinate
counsel and foreknowledge of God, that
which Ills hand and His counsel deter
mined before to be done (Acts 11, 23; lv,
28), the last part to the high priest
who delivered Him to Pilate. There
are degrees of sin and degrees of pun
ishment for the lost, as there are de
grees of rewards for the righteous
(I.like xll. 48; Rev. xxil, 12). When
the Jews cried out, "If thou let this
man go thou art not Caesar's friend;
» • • we have no king but Caesar"
(verses 12-15), Pilate took water and
washed his hands before the multi
tude, saying. "1 am Innocent of the
blood of this Just person; see ye to It."
Then the people said, "His blood be
on us and on our children." Then be
released Barahbas. scourged Jesus and
delivered Him to be crucified (Matt
xxvll, 24-20). Why did he scourge Him
after be declared Him innocent? Why
did he deliver Illm to the brutal sol
diers to be mocked and spit upon and
so 111 treated? liven a guilty man Is
protected from Injustice at the hands
of his enemies as a rule. If we cannot
reply to the why, let each one at least
say It was all for me, the Holy One of
God suffering In my stead. When we
see the Hon of God, the Creator of all
things, the Judge of all mankind, re
ceiving such treatment ut the bands of
the civil ami religions authorities and
remember thai they are Jet the same
today, what should be our -ttltude to
them? When we hear I'llate say, "Be
bold the man!" and "Itehold your
king!" (verses 5-14) we tbluk of the
true testimonies of the Spirit, "Behold
the man whose name Is Tlie Branch!"
and "Behold, thy king Cometh!"
(Zecb. vl, 12; lx, !)).
So Pilate delivered Jesus to be cruci
fied. and they took Illm and led Illm
away, and He. bearing Ills cross, went
forth I verses 10, 17). They met one
Simon, a Cyrenian, coming Into the city
and compelled him to turn about and
help Jesus hear the cross or bear it
for Hitn (I.uke xxlii. 20). We remember
that lie said. "If any man will come
after Me, let him deny himself and
take up his cross and follow Me"
(Matt, xvl, 24). Let us not forget that
the cross Is never anything beautiful,
but a cruel thing signifying a painful
ami lingering death. Many women fol
lowed lllui, bewailing and lamenting
Him, but He told them not to weep
for Him. hut for themselves and their
children because of the things thnt
would come upon them (I.uke xxlii, 27-
31). navlnif*4eacbed Golgotha, they
crucified Illm and two Evildoers with
lliin. one o|i either side and Jesus In
the midst, ait'l thus He was numbered
with transgressors, all for me.
The four soldiers divided His gar
ments among them, but for His coat
they cast lots, thus fulfilling another
Scripture (verses 23, 24; Pa. xxil, 18).
Perhaps three more awful words were
never written than these, "They cruci
fied Him" (verse 18), when wo consider
who He was that they crucified, the
Prince of Life, the Lord of Glory
(Acts 111. 15; 1 Cor. li, 8». and that lie
submitted to lie a curse for us that
we might not perish (Gal. 111. 13). We
huve in our lesson three of His seven
sayings on flic croaa (20, 28, 30); but.
taking them Iu order from all the rec
ords. we have first forgiveness, even
for those wlio crucified Him; theu
glory for even a penitent thief; then
provlslou for Ills own mother, suggest
ing the supply of all we can need be
tween salvation nnd glory. The fourth
was at the beginning of the darkness,
"My Grid, my God. why hast thou for
saken Me?" and the other three at the
cloae of those awful six hours, "1
thirst," "If Is finished," "Father, Into
thy bands I couimlt My spirit."
When the Jews asked Pilate lo have
tho bodies removed that tliplr Sabbath
day might not bo desecrated (oh, the
utter hypocrisy of It all!) the soldiers
broke the legs of the two malefactors,
but found JCMIIS dead already, so (hey
did no( break Ills ICES, bul a soldier
pierced Ills side, and thus two Scrip
tures were fulfilled. Lx. xll, 40; Zech.

Towns Looking Out For the Babies.
According to the State Board of
Health, North Carolina is now
interesting herself -in a new form
of patriotism but a real one. She
is going after conditions which
make babies sicken and die, par
ticulaily in the summer, and which
ignorant mothers have been bat
tling with ever since they have
been mothers. A number of towns
and communities in the State are
now engaged in, or have been, or
will be, in the next few weeks,
conducting a Qaby Week Cam
paign. Oohfsboro, Black Mountain
, and Rocky Mount are conducting
i such campaigns this week. Aber
deen and Charlotte held theirs
last week, and the whole of Edge
| combe county, including Tarboro,
1 1 is interested in one for the white
i babies next week, and one for the
I colored babies the week follow
| ing. Other towns that have done
work of this kind this summer are
Ahoskie and Hickory.
Babies mean more to this coun
try today than they use to. The
present war will cause them to be
considered in even more valuable
terms, a* is now the case in Eng
land, France and other warring
nations. Baby savins in England
is one of that country's chiefest
concerns. Countrys that are every

WARNING AGAINST DYSENTERY.
Board of Health Says it is Controlled
and Prevented Like Typhoid.
The State Board of Health calls
attention to the fact that the form
of dysentery that has already '
nvisited several towns in the State i
and caused the death of a number
of children, including four in one
family in one town, is a germ dis
ease that is controlled and pre
vented by practically the same
methods as typhoid fever. Like
typhoid, it may be water borne,
milk borne or fly borne, or it may
be contracted from soiled hands,
through unclean food, or in numer
ous other ways.
The main point to remember
about it, says the Board, is that
it is a filth disease having the
same course as typhoid, spread in
exactly the same way and is there- '
fore prevented in the same way. ]
Consequently, open back surface
closets, flies and unclean hands
become the principal factors to
be reckoned with in its control.
In cities aud towns where there 1
are sewers, and where sanitary J
laws are enforced the danger from
this source is not so great. But
in the country where there are no 1
sewers and where flies raise in
abundance, there is always a very
great danger of an outbreak of
The best place to control the
spread of amoebic dysentery, ac
cording to the Board, is the sick
room. In addit'on to the neces
sity of the utmost care and clean- I
liness on the part of the nurse or
attendant, the most essential
thing is the proper disposal of all
body discharges. The doctor's '
orders should be followed to tha
letter in this matter as this is the
original source of every case of
the disease. i
