A Commendable Attitude
TTie North Wilkesboro Lions Club is
fortunate in having a member of the type
of Ivey Moore. Without any desire for
personal reward except the satisfaction
which comes from rendering a service,
Mr. Moore has offered his services to the
schools of Wilkes county in a campaign to
ralarge the libraries which admittedly are
Mr.,Moore’s performance as an amateur
magician is a treat and well worth the
admission charge which schools are ex
pected to ask in the. campaign to which
he has offered to donate his time. Those
who have seen him give performances
are enthusiastic in praise of his ability as
In this day of dollar-snatching, it is en
couraging to observe an unselfish, public-
qiirited act that looks towai'd the enlarge
ment of opportunities for the boys and
gdrls of the rural communities. Mr. Moore
has and deserves the gratitude of every
frmul of education. Frankly, it is our
hope that men of the type of our local en
tertainer will increase in number.
Those who wish to secure Mr. Moore’s
se^ces free of charge for a program to
raise funds for the librai'ies should get in
touch with him at once.
“Clarifying Section 7-A"
The Cleveland Star, published at Shel
by, gives an able presentation of the pur
pose of Section 7-A of the National Re
covery Act in a timely editorial under the
caption which will be observed above.
It presents both angles, that of the em
ployer and that of the employe. The edi
torial in full follows:
In the settlement of the threatened automobile
atrike over the week-end President Roosevelt
clarified the great bone of contention between
employes and employers, the interpretation of
Section 7-A of the Recovery Act. Union labor
beads had interpreted that famous section to
mean that nothing but union labor would be rec-
ogpuzed in “collective bargaining.” Consequent
ly a nation-wide drive to increase union member-
■hip. However, before the section was clarified
by Mr. Roosevelt on Sunday, strikes had cost
American workers a loss of fifty-four millions of
dollars in loss of time.
The settlement was a victory for both sides
for it brings th°m to a better understanding.
Despite those who try to keep them apart, em
ployers and employes are not enemies. The only
gains ever made by industry or labor are gains
resulting from peaceful negotiations and genuine
co-operation. Employers and employe have
found out by observation and experience that
strikes and lockouts almost never pay. Both sides
are sure to lose. They always diif- They always
It is well that a show-down came in the auto
mobile dispute. It would have been better had
tbe issue been settled months ago as oth?r
strikes and disputes might have been averted. It
is impossible to escape the belief that the Ameri
can Federation of Labor leaders, not the work
ers themselves, were responsible for the threat in
the motor industry. The A. F. of L. leader in
command in Detroit said the grievance was “not
fundamentally for better working conditions or
pay increases, but for the enforcement of Sec
tion 7-A,” which everybody knows concerns col
lective bargaining. Labor leaders contended
that “collective bargaining means recognition of
closed shop—the closed shop eventually if
not at once.”
In the settlement of the automobile trouble
President Roosevelt said, “the government makes
it clear that it favors no particular onion or par
ticular form of employee organ zation or repre-
resentation. The government’s only duty is to
^cui* absolute and uninfluenced freedom of
rilokc without coerrim, restraint or intimidation
fro many source.” Those arc the words that
clarify. It means that workers may belong to a
w4ional or local union, a company group or
otgaoiaation or no union at all.
MevH, seniority and human relationships are
to be taken into consideration when employes
are laid off. Married men wi'.h dependents will
be given preference, the more effici-^nt and long
experienced men will be retained when a lay-off
period comes, as it does in every industry. This
will clar'fy another bone of contention- When
onion m"n have been dropped from the payroll,
the union has charged discrimination. The em
ployers have no doubt been guilty of discrimina-
tioD in many instances, but it is not good busi
ness judgment or a common practice of any
been employer to dismiss efficient men even
though they carry a union card.
The terms of settlement in the auto industry
•HI serve to bring a better nnckrstanding be-
tmen industry and labor so that strife and con
troversy may suhcnde.

Several days ago, the Medical Econo-
mws magazine famMed some interesting
statistics regarding the doctors. To a
questionnaire pn charity work, 5,^ phy
sicians, representing the pyofession to all
sections of the United States, replied as to
their individual problen^
'The average doctor, a compilation of
the answers revealed, works 60 weeks per
year and 62 hours per week. Of the 62
hours, he gives 15, hours to patients he
knows cannot pay. Another 16 hours are
given to patients who he discovers will not
pay. Each day, the magazine avers, the
doctors of the United States give paupers
and dead beats professional services worth
over a million dollars.
No profession has shown itself more
worthy of gratitude during the depression
than &e medical profession. The doctors
have given their time and the expense of
making calls to thousands of patients who
had nothing to give in return. And know
ing this, they gave freely to relieve hu
man suffering and save lives.
Now that times are better, it is to be
hoped that the doctors will receive better
treatment in the matter of pay. A pro
fession that is giving a million dollare a
day to humanity shows true generosity.
Day after tomorrow, Richard J. Reyn
olds, son of the late famous tobacco mag
nate, will have 26 million dollars to call
his own by reason of his father’s will
which set his 28th birthday as the date
for his inheritance.
Twenty-five million is a tremendwis
fortune. What would you do with a miL
lion ? Generally, it is folly to contemplate
such a possibility. In fact, most of those
who have acquired a million never thought
of getting that much when they staited
to save. They simply began saving and
adding to their little nest egg until it
grew to that size.
The fortune Mr. Reynolds will possess
Wednesday is a tribute to the elder Reyn
olds who was not afraid to work and who
grasped the opportunity to get ahead.
Starting life as a tobacco salesman, the
elder Reynolds built up a fortune estimat
ed at $100,000,000.
Hard work and thrift may not earn a
million for you, but generally it will lessen
the fear of old age and possible depen

The book of Job is a grand book. It does not
furnish any answer to the perplexing problem of
suffering. It does not explain why a good man.
Job or any other, should have sorrow visited
upon him in a world which is supposed) to be
under the control of a living God. What it does
proclaim is that God has staked His reputation
on His ability to produce human beings who can
stand anything that fate or fortune may bring;
ipen who will be good without a bribe. It in
sists that in this trial of creative strength and
moral goodness GolIi is winning out.
“Every man has his price,” says the cynic;
but Job did not have his price. He was strip
ped of his possessions, he lost his health, he had
a fool for a wife, and his friends were no com
fort to him. But his head though bloody was
unbowed- “Even if God dpes not reward me.
and treats me like a wicked man; even if He has
made a mistake about me. or forgotten me, or
just naturally ha.s it in for me. nevertheless I
stand on my record. I am glad I fed the hun
gry and helped people when I coul4 I have
nothing to regret, and I refuse to lie and say that
r have. The words of Job are ended.”
It is a brave speech of a brave man, and small
wonder that God responded to it. restored him
his property, blessed his sons and daughters,
and all-^wed him to live in prosperity for a hun- •
dred and forty years.
So Job d’ed, b?ing old and full of days.
So much for the poetry of the Old Testament,
and the drama.
To pick up our historical outline where we
left it at the end of the last chapter, we must
go back to King Solomon, who has built his
temple and palaces, written his Froverbs. and
grown old, his heart being “turned away” by his
harem. With a thousand mothers to look after
them the children of a king ought to be properly
brought up, but the net results in the Solomon
household were hot so good). His heir, Reho-.-
boam, was a typical rich man’s son, soft, con
ceited, sure of his own opinion and contemptu
ous of advice. As soon as it was shown that
“Solomon slept with his fathers.” a rough and
ready soldier named Jeroboam organized an in-
suirection, demanding that King Rehoboara low
er the taxes and conduct himself in a less arbi
trary fashion than had his father.
The old men who had been Solomon’s coun
selors urged Rehoboam to compromise, but the
hot-headed young courtiers were all for the Big
Stick, and Rehoboam sided with them.
This made it all very easy for Jeroboam, who
promptly persuaded the ten northern tribes to
sepsu’ate and elect him their king. Rehoboam '
kept only Judah and the littlh tribe of Benja^-„
