iThe Go To Church Movement
As a family journal, this newspaper has
jM) inclination to go into a discussion of
religion, particularly from a denomina-
latHial standpoint, but we do not consider
it amiss to discuss “The Church as a Com-
ITiis subject becomes more interesting,
doe to the fact that an interdenomina-
tional movement has been started here
for the puiTK)se of increasing church at
This leads to the desire to touch upon
five subject of the value of the church in
a towm or community. A person who is
ronsidering moving into a community will
ask first about two institutions—the
riiurch and the school. Regardless of one s
religious beliefs or regardless of whether
ir not one is a church member, he wants
to make his home in a community where
there are active churches because he
know'S that a community with good
riiurches will be suitable for residence.
In view of the immeasurable value of
churches it is the civic duty of everybody
to support the churches and one of the
best ways to support a church is to lend
jroDr interest and influence by attending
the services regularly.
The Journal-Patriot is behind the “Go-
fco-Church” movement and wll co-operate
tolly with the plan of impressing upon
pecq>le the idea that they should attend
diurch services, not only asking the resi-
da>ts of Nortli Wilkesboro but all its read-
; to attend the church of their choice.
Invention and Demand
There has been a great deal of dis
cussion lately over what the tolk who
coin new' phrases call the “time lag ’
between invention or discovery and the
general use of the new thi' ^'s in\ented
gjT discovered. Somebody invented a
typewriter in 1784, it is pointed out, but
the first typewriter actually put on the
market was in 1874, ninety yep.vs later.
Blaise Pascal made an adding machine
in 1665, but adding machines were not
marketed commercially until about
fifty years or so ago. Men were capc-vi-
menting with power-driven vehicle s,
and actually ran rteam-cngiimu cut>-
mobiles in England more th.an IOC
years ago, yet the automobile did not
become an article of commerce until
'Within the past forty years.
The impression .some folks get is that
something is wrong with a social sj.stem
that lets great inventions lie d-ormart
for a century or two. What is realiy
wor.se, it seems to us, is that the.se .'••ame
people think that all that is neces.sHry
is to invent something which a future
fftneration will find n.seful.
The typcw'riter was put on the mar
ket when it wa.s because the time was
rips for it. There was little demand for
*uch a machine until busines.s had de
veloped to the point in volume where
it would be useful as a time-saver. So.
too, with the counting machine. As for
the automobile, its commercial appli
cation had to wait for the invention of
the gasoline engine, the discovery
petroleum and means of extracting the
gasoline, a great supply of low-priced
rubber, and the growth of population
and wealth which would make it pos-
Mbie for large numbers of people to
In the research laboratories of today
there are hundreds, probably thous
ands of inventions and discoveries
which will remain unused until the
time comes when it will be profitable
to commercialize them, and that time
will be when society is ready to buy
jHtem, and not before.
Commencement time is almost here for
the schools of Wilkes county and gradu
ates will soon be facing the question of
what to do.
It is a conceded fact that high school
graduates in this age do not have the ex
perience and training to fit them for a
grapple with the problems of life. There is
nothing wrong with high school education
and training, but in most cases the gradu'
ates are in the teen ages and have not yet
tasted of the bitterness of disappointment
and have not experienced the feeling of
success. In other words, they are not fit
ted by age or experience for life and the
the universal advice is to go to college or
continue* education in some chosen chan
However, practically all of us have been
along that road of high school graduation
and know what a pleasant feeling it is to
receive a diploma and know that we have
passed in a manner satisfactory to teach
ers four years of high school work. Pos
sibly some will presume that they have
done something worthy of great note and
that, having received a diploma, a com
fortable living will be forthcoming with
out move effort.
The primary aim of education, whether
you know it or not, is to fit you for work
and not to place you in a position where
you will not have to work. No one has
yet received a comfortable living or
wealth on a silver platter just because he
or she happens to possess a diploma. The
diploma is to certify that you have re
ceived a certain degree of academic train
ing that should be of benefit later on. It
does not mean that you have already ac
complished something; it means that you
have acquired the training that should
enable you to do something when you face
life in the raw.
WTiether you go on to institutions of
higher education or start to work, you will
find that you must put your education
into practical use and work harder than
the other fellow to gain and retain the
lead in any kind of endeavor.

TEN FAMOUS WOMEN
The same letter which invited ten thousand
preachers to name the ten greatest men in the
Bible asked also for a list of ten famous wom
en. Seventy-four names received votes, and are
arranged not in the order of their popularity
but in their chronological sequence:
1. Eve. “the mother of all living.”
2. Ruth (who had the highest vote next to
Mary, the mother of Jesus).
3. Hannah, the devoted mother.
4. The one woman whom the Bible calls great.
5. Esther, the beautiful queen.
6. Mary, the mother f Je.sus (for whom prac
tically every vote was cast),
7. Mary of Magdala.
8. The Bethany Sisters.
9. The woman of Samaria.
10. The widow Avho gave the mite.
Eve: Every ancient people ha.s its own legend
of the creation of the first man and woman, and
in almost every .story the woman gets the w’orst
of it. Ii. is only fair to Eve to remember this.
.Some man (Mo.se.s or another) is her biog
When the woman saw that the tree was
gco.i tor food, and that it was plea.s.ant to
t e eyr.s, and a tree to be de.=ired to make

('id eat, and gave also to her hu.sband.

.son. tins child, this miracle of little pink toes
and tiny hands that have such a terrible clutch
at one’s hair and heartstrings.
That is the theme of all cradle songs. Eve set
the mothers of the world to singing. She did
wrong, in that apple affair. Bat as a result of
it s.he and .■\'!am were no longer pri.soners: they
were working to pay off the mortgage. And
weren't they happier, isn’t the whole race hap
