CHARLOTTE, N. C., THURSDAY, JANUARY, 2, 1941
ALL HAIL, 1941
1940 into the discard has gone. It was a good year, taking
it all in all. Of course many of us had our sorrows, trials and
tribuations, which is a matter of course. The AverageCitizen has
fared well; the Business Man has tasted of prosperity; the workers
have been more than blessed; employment has cut the number oi
unemployed down to some extent, with “prospect of further cur
tailment along the line of “relief,” which is as it should be. Char
lotte especially has been favored the past year and starts 1941 off
with a feeling of security as to business, and an outlook for
greater things. Our business men are capable, our civic leaders
progressive, and the morale of our citizenship as a whole is above
*>ar So, as the Journal sees it, there is nothing to fear, even if the
Old World is at way, for we have faith in the downfal lof Hitlers
dream of World Empire.
America may be forced into war, which we hope it will not,
but it will be a war of defense on our own shores and in our own
territory. Every aid should be given England, for when the British
Empire falls America will be the next victim. Mussolini’s forces are
wavering; England is gaining ground in its fight in foreign
dominions; and the war waxes warmer. Brittain needs ships—
planes—America must furnish them. America must work every
plant, every hour, EVERY DAY, if necessary, to supply these
needs, and American workers will, as they always have, go hand
in hand, especially the forces of the A. F. of L., an organization
of loyal Americans working for and with America.
To Clarence Kuester, and our local Chamber of Commerce, are
due tribute for an untiring effort to build Charlotte, and to co
operate wi the workers for the better things in life.
So, a Happy New Year To All, and the OLD MAN of The
Journal will strive to serve another year, adding one more link
to the 67 in the unbroken chain.
GREEK BOOKLET ISSUED
“Greece Today,” an historical educational booklet, issued in
December, by the Greek Orthodox Community, Charlotte, N. C., is
on our desk. It is, to quote, its introductory page “An All Talking
Picture of a Historical Type, Showing Authentic Scenes from the
Renaissance of Greece.” The Greek Orthodox Community is offi
cered as follows: James Paschal, president; Thomas Calavaris,
Vice-President; Louis Pappas, secretary; George Panos, treasurer.
Some way, some how, when one considers the fight the Greeks
are putting up against Mussolini, fighting with and for the British;
gaining every vantage point and holding steadfast to the history
of Ancient Greece, from whence came our art, literature, etc.,
America iB proud of its Greek population.
