Roosevelt said: “National surveys prove

ical fraternity a third-class diet. If the
country lived on a second-rate diet, we
would need to put many more acres than
we use today into the production of food
stuffs for domestic consumption. If the
nation lived on a first-class diet, we would
have to put more acres than we ever have
cultivated into the production of an ad

The War On Tuberculosi*
Are you putting Christmas Seals on all
your ChristmaspMkag^ this year? Those
gay little red-and-green emblems, which
cost only a penny apiece, are the means
by which money is raised to carry on the
nation-wide fight against the most insidi
ous of all the plagues that afflict human
kind, tuberculosis, the “great white
It is to saving children that the work
of the National Tuberculosis Association
and its state and county branches is es
pecially directed. Medical science has made
great strides in its battle against disease,
and the control, if not the cure, of tuber
culosis is one of its triumphs. Yet every
year more children die of this disease
than from any other one cause. The cent
you spend for a gay Christmas Seal to
stick on your Christmas mail may help
to save a baby’s life.
“Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one
of the least of these, my children, ye have
done it unto me.”
Hauptmann Case Closing
When the supreme court of the United
States refused to review the case of Bruno
Hauptmann, convicted and sentenced to
death for the kidnaping and murder of
the Lindbergh child, the famous case was
brought a step nearer its close.
There are many people throughout the
country who feared that his trial was more
of a circus than a bar of justice and that
the notoriety of the case had much to do
with his conviction and sentence.
But it will appear from the records that
the state of New Jersey really did get a
strong case against Hauptmann and that
his conviction is amply backed up by evi
dence. 'The highest court’s refusal to re
view the case bears out these facts.
The kidnaping racket, practiced more
or less through the ages, really did not
take on alarming proportions in this coun
try until the Lindbergh kidnaping was
perpetuated and jme guilty party appar
ently secure in escape. But there was a
slip and today,Hauptmann awaits execu-

how seriously it was until a highway en
gineer appeared before the dty commis
sioners to enter a formal complaint about
Tenth street, over which a federal and
state highway are routed.
It is a fact that traffic is often con
gested on Tenth street and on .other
streets of the city, especially on Satur
days. This condition, you can be assured
is noticed by those who pass through the
city and we vditure to assert that the im
pressions gained are not always favorable
and do not speak well for the city.
We do not mind visitors gaining the im
pression that NorUi Wilkesboro is a busy
place, which it is. But it would be better
if they were impressed with the activity
together with orderliness.
We are too often prone to abuse our
privileges but unless the traffic situation
shows signs of great improv^ent, city
officials will necessarily have to enforce
stringent regulations, especially as to
parking automobiles and trucks.
America Ahead In The Air
The great American flying boat, ‘Qiina
Clipper,” has opened the new trans-Pa-
cific air service, between the United
States, the Philippine Islands, and China.
Plans for a regular air service across the
North At’antic are under way, while the
flying boats of our own Pan-American
Airways are running on regular schedules,
carrying passengers and mail between
North and South America.
We hear if every airplane accident, and
fail to realize that few of these occur on
regular scheduled air line flights. Most of
the fatalities in American aviation in the
year just ending have been in accidents
to private planes or those of the Army
and Navy, or in test flights of newly-de
Only eight airline passengers, the rec
ords show, were killed in the past year,
in some 50 million miles of flying.
Considering how young the whole art
of flying is—less than thirty years—and
that commercial aviation has been devel
oped only since the war, it would seem
that the airplane has already reached a
point of safety far greater than that which
the railroads reached in the same num
ber of years.
As air travel increases, rates will come
down. Even novr the cost of flying is not
so much higher than the cost of rail trav
el as to be an excessive price to pay for
the time saved.
Americans do more flying than the peo
ple of any other nation. American air
lines now link America to Asia. Let us
hope they will soon bring Europe so close
that we can hop to London or Paris over
Sunday School Lesson
By REV. CHARLES E. DUNN
EZRA TEACHING THE LAW
Lesson for December 15th, Nehemiah 8: Golden
Text, Psalm 119-11
The picture of Ezra standing on a wooden
platform, especially built for the occasion, in the
open space before the water gate and reading
God’s law to an attentive audience from an early
hour in the morning until noon, is the most at
tractive. It reminds us of the perennial appeal
of the Holy Scriptures.
This year marks the 400th anniversary of the
first complete printed edition of the English
Bible. The appearance of this historic volume
has been aptly called “the most important event
in the cultural history of the English-speaking
Such a significant milestone can best be cele
brated by a renewal of our interest in this Book
of Life. Let us read it again with that noble de
votion displayed by Ezra long ago, knowing full
well, as Charles A. Dana, the great journalist,
once said, that there is no book “which yo ’ open
with such confidence and lay down with such
Four methods of study are helpful. In the
first place, we can acquaint ourselves with the
Bible by reading its individual books. Consider
the Psalms. Gladstone once declared that all the
marvels of Greek civilization piled together are
less impressive than the simple collection of the
Secondly, we can follow the development of
the central ideas of the Bible. Take its most
important concept, that of God. Here we pass
from the primitive notion of the Eternal as a
glorified man to the New Testament doctrine of
a spiritual Presence.
Then we can study the varied characters of
the sacred record. The Scriptures furnish us
with the finest portrait gallery in the world.
Finally, we can enjoy the beauty spots of the
Bible of which there are so many. Beginning
perhaps with the Sermon on the Mount, we can
continue with the great parables of Jesus, and
• then pass ^ the Psalms, the prophetic visions,,
and other^lmpressivo hi|^rtit>- -
