Its new name wo lild be Utopia, the
land of eternal bliss and happiness.
At any rate the unemployed seem
to be hoping that he is going. to
win, for they are arriving at the
rate of one hundred persons a day
from all sections" ef the country.
One. fact that we noticed in a state
ment released by the Motor Vehicle
Bureau of California was that peo
ple were coming from twenty-eight
states and in the list was not a
single one from North Carolina.
That may be accounted for in more
than one way. There is a possi
bility that the distance is too great
from North Carolina to California,
but we noticed that there were some
from other southern states, equally
as far, or it may have been that
the unemployed in this state did
not have enough funds to finance
the trip, but the same would no
doubt hold true for the unemploy
ed of other sections, so we have
just about reached the conclusion
that North Carolina, along with
nineteen other states is in better
shape than the remaining tWfenty
Who is Cherry Wilkins? There
have been a series of articles in The
State, published by Carl Goerch in
Raleigh every week, written by this
author or authoress. She purports
to be from this county, and we would
like to satisfy our own curiosity if
for no other reason and know who
she is. The articles are interesting,
well-written and deserve recognition
by the author's home folks.
CARD OF THANKS !
We wish to take this method to
thank each and every one for their
many kindnesses shown at the I
time of the death of-father, Mr.
John A. Paul. No people could have
been more thoughtful or kind in'
their acts and expressions, and we
deeply appreciate, same. May God
in His wisdom reward every one.

THE CHRISTIAN'S STANDARD
Lesson for October 28th
Golden Text: Ephesians 5:18
"Do not get drunk with wine"
warns Paul in our Golden Text.
How greatly we need today this ad- j
vice! The repeal of the 18th
Amendment was hailed as a great
forward step toward real temper-1
ance, but" as everyone now knows, it
I has not solved the liqissr problem. |
1 In fact we are now just fhout where
we were a generation ago when the !
'fight against the saloon was gath
Bootlegging is still flourishing.
Joseph H. Choate, Jr., director of
the Federal Alcohol control Admin
istration .report* that two-thirds of
all the liquor now sold In the coun
try is made In illicit stills. The high
taxo n liquor makes It profitable to
make and sell It under coyer so as
'to avoid the tax. The situation
makes Imperative a determined war
on bootleggers by both federal and
The saloon also is back despite
the loftd assurances -that It would
never return. "And It- Is back," as
the New Jersey commissioner of al
cohol control points out, "because
the people want It back."
And it Is painfully revealing to
read newspaper reports in Chicago
and elsewhere telling of an Increase
In drunken driving. Insurance sta
tistics reveal that out of the total
number of drivers Involved In motor
car accidents the first half of this
year, 236% were declaiied intbxi
cated, as against 1.66% in the cor
responding pe.iod of 1933, an in
crease of 42%.
The problem of course Is one of
great complexity. We are In a period
of readjustment. What the church,
and the community must do is to
find the most workable plan of ef
fectively reducing the consumption
of alcoholic beverages. In this mili
tant crusade we cannot afford to fail.

THE SIN OF WORRY
In his beautiful references to the
birds of the air and the lillies of the
field Jesus teaches his people not
It would not be true to say that
there is nothing to produce worry
in the lives of people. That view
can not be held unless one believes
everything is just as it should be?
just in keeping with the will and
purpose of God.
But even if there are things about
which men may worry the worry
will do no good. When we have to
deal with the undesirable and im
perfect if there be any remedy it is
hetter to forego the worry and ap
ply the femedy. And I might say
here that I am not basing these
statements "on human opinion but
on the teachings of Jesus.
What then, about the sin of wor
ry? In this brief space only three
things will be mentioned.
In the first place it is an injury
to those with whom one associates.
It is as a wet blanket chilling the
joy oS life. Or to change the figure
to .nin into pessimism ana knock
the edge off of their aspirations and
courage as a rock knocks the edge
off of an axe, thereby rendering
them less capable of performing
j Again may It not be said that
j worry is a slow means of suicide?
And while the end is approaching
i it renders one less capable of filling
his place and discharging his va
rious duties to his fellowman and
Moreover worry Is a manifesta
tion of mistrust of God or an un
willingness for him to have his way.
For a cure of worry try a con
scientious discharge of duty and a
sincere reliance on God.

Harsh laxatives often drain the
