Opportunity In 4-H Clubs
Forty-one young people of the Mountain
View community have the interest in
farming and initiative to organize com
clubs, ca'f clubs and poultry clubs.
There as been a tendency dunng the
past ten yt ars for young people to disre
gard the thought of adopting farming as a
life’s work. Some of this has been
brought about by educators who have
pointed out how education helps people
make money. This doctrine was preached
to youth so much that they began to sneer
at farming and had the impression that all
they had to do to escape working and
earning a living by the sweat of their
brow was to go to school and prepare
themselves to make big money without
In this age disillusioned youth is treking
to the farm to earn a living and the hap
piness of security in home ownership.
Those young people in the Mountain
View Community and others who will line
up in 4-H club work throughout the coun
ty are making wise choices, regardless of
what profession they may take in ma
An Invitation to the Coroner
Your chance of being involved in a fatal
automobile accident are much greater on
highways than anywhere else. Bad as the'
urban accident rate is, the death toll is
mounting fastest in rural territories, even
though traffic is less dense.
Last year 167,000 accidents occurred on
highways. The result w'as 160,000 injur
ies—and 13,000 deaths. By contrast, 286,-
000 city accidents caused but 8,000 deaths.
In 1934, the rate of death per accident on
highways was more than 100 per cent
greater than the average for all accidents
The reason isn’t hard to find. The
modern highway is wide and smooth,
rarelj congested. It looks as safe as your
own back yard. And, as a consequence,
thousands of drivers relax behind the
wheel, and step hard on the accelerator.
When a crash arrives, they react too slow’-
ly, or are going too fast to avoid a smash
—and death follows.
" Tliat is especailly worth remembering
now, with the appearance of summeit.
Most motorists wnll be making trips into
the country—and they should keep in
mind the unhappy fact that somno.ence on
the highway is an invitation to the coi-
While w'e have never been of the opin
ion that the world is “going to the dogs,”
we are inclined to side with Dr. Clyde A.
Milner, president of Guilford College, who
stated in his address to the Wilkesboro
high school graduates Wednesday night
that there .has been a great change during
the past 25 years in the moral standards
and aptitudes of the populace of this
Twenty-five years ago, he said, the
moral standards and choices were closely
held together in a unit, which was the
home. In the home the parents and chil
dren lived in close unity and with more or
less a single standard.
The difference today is that the people
of one home live all over the country,
figuratively speakmg.. Rapid means of
travel and more widespread communica
tion expands the orbit in which one lives.
This causes a youth to be thrown into con
tact with all classes of people. He or she
learns the way of the world and the vari
ous phases of life which are not governed
by high, and noble moral standards of con
duct, may have a glittering appeal.

North Wilkesboro at one time held the
distinction of having more miles of paved
streets according to population than any
other town in North Carolina. We do not
know whether this city is still in the lead
in this respect but do know that we
have many miles of paved streets and that
several of the miles are in need of repair
or we shall face the necessity of doing
part of the job over with replacements.
In addition to repairs we are in need of
some new projects of street construction
and the opportunities offered by the
works-relief plan should be fully investi
gated. The need of highway work
throu^out the county is apparent, es
pecially along the county roads that lead
into the main arteries of travel.
For work projects that are not classed
in the highway and street category we
can think of a number without much re
flection. There is scarcely .one school
building in Wilkes county that is not in
dire need of repairs and iterations today.
Roofs are leaky, desks are inadequate and
in many cases the buildings are far too
small to accommodate the enrollment of
consolidated schools. Surely the school
properties of Wilkes county provide a
field ‘ripe unto the harvest” for tihe works-
Many schools are in need of better and
more adequate playgrounds. And while
we are discussing recreation, let us not
forget a municipal playground for the
children of North Wilkesboro. Another
need is municipal tennis courts. And
while we are thinking about recreation let
us consider that further development of
Rendevous Mountain state park is not out
of the question and would be a commend
able project. Construction of a golf
course is by no means impossible.
These are only suggestions. As yet
none of us know just how the works-relief
program will be carried out and what type
of projects will gain the most favor. But
the important admonition is that we
should take heed lest our needs are over

The Story comes late in the Old Testament
chronology, dealing with the period when there
were numerous Jews in Mesopotamia, descend
ants of those who were carried away captive by
Nebuchadnezzar in 586 B. C. A hundred years
had passed and, while many Jews had returned
to Palestine, others were settled in different
parts of the big unwieldly Persian kingdom,
j-uled over by Ahasuerus.
Mordecai was plotted against by a politician
named Haman, who through misrepresentation
caused the king to promulgate a decree of mas
sacre against the Jews. It was at this crisis
that Mordecai went to Esther, demanding
that she should gO in unto the king, to *
make supplication unto him. and to make
request before him for her people.
She replied that no one was permitted to ap
proach the king without being sent for by name
and that the penalty of disobedience was death.
In noble words Mordecai argued the case, and
at length Esther was persuaded.
Go, gather together all the Jews that are
present in Shushan (she replied), and fast
ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three
days, night or day; I i '°o and my maiden
will fast likewise: and so will I go in unto
the king, which is not according to the law;
and if I perish, I perish.
The third day came. Modestly but with firm
step and head erect, she moved into the inner
court where sat Ahasuerus on his mighty throne
There was an awful moment of suspense while
the courtiers watched with bated breath to see
what destruction would descend upon this girl
who had dared to break the law. But her beauty
. was irresistible. The king held out his scepter,
the sign of royal recognition. Esther knelt and
touched it and made her plea and won.
A new decree was promulgated; the Jews were
restored to favor and Jbegan promptly to take
advantage of their opportunities to grow rich.
Haman by poetic justice was hanged on the high
gallows'which he had built for Mordecai..
The finest passage in the whole book is Mor-
decai’s ringing answer to Esther when she hesi
tated to approach the king, arguing that her
feeble strength and abilities could not possibly
prevail in such an emergency:
Those words have rung down the corridors of
time as an underlying challenge to the courage
and faith of youth. “Let no faint-heartedness
turn you aside from the duty to which you are
clearly called, no matter how hard that duty may
be or how much apparently beyond your powers.”

Late Chicks Requi
Chicks hatched In the late
spring require more careful at
tention than those hatched ear
lier in the season.
Approaching hot weather and
the danger of infection with dis
ease add to the difficulties of
ialsing late chicks, explains Roy
S. Dearstyne, head of the State
College poultry department.
The aim in good chick develop
ment is to secure a rapid growth
during the first eight or ten
weeks, he says, with the birds
attaining a weight of about two
pounds at the end of this period.
After this time, growth pro
ceeds more slowly while the birds
are storingg a reserve In their

styne points out, the birds may
not reach a normal size. They

Birds raised to a weight of
two pounds by May 1 are less
liable to acute outbreaks of coc-
cidiosls than those batched late
in the season. Warm, moist at

Care* should be exercised not
to overheat or underventilate
