Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair.
"Americans All Immigrants All"
"Lest we forget" while enjoying freedom and
security paid for by the blood of our fathers that
this same blood in our veins is a mixture of many
strains. The United States Department of the Inter
ior, Office of Education, is presenting a series of
broadcasts over CBS every Sunday from 2 to 2:30
p. m., entitled Americans All, Immigrants All.
The' coming week is "Interracial Week" through
out the nation, to emphasize just what Uncle Sam
is trying to teach us. This radio series is described
as "dedicated to all the men and women who have
come to the shores of the United States since early
times, to give of their brain and brawn, and to share
its freedom and its greatness."
We confess that we do not like the word "alien."
While it is used by loyal patriots to describe for
eigners with sinister designs, we apply it too fre
quently and unthinkingly to any person or group
from other parts. In .t'his sense we are all aliens ex
cept the American Indian.
Incidentally, we regret our junior senator's hon
est but misplaced zeal in trying to start an artificial
group calling themselves "vindicators." It would
make all the rest of us not wearing a'feather, is it?
in our hats, non-vindicators. It is our humble
opinion that we have enough groups and societies
in America to keep any of us from getting lonesome.
What we do need 'is a standard of unity for all
groups "to which the wise and honest can repair."
Study your Americari history your family history.
Our people came from many races and fought and
suffered on many fronts and frontiers. They have
been coming ever since and helping to build this
nation. They have? given the color, the richness, the
variety , and genius that is America. The peoples of
the earth have come and found freedom of oppor-
tunity and freedom of religion.
'We The People by Huberman, contains this
striking summary, likening America to "a, magnet
that attaracted every type and variety of human
being alive!" . t .
"White people, black people, yellow people; Cath
olics, Protestants, Huguenots, Quakers, Baptists,
Methodists, Unitarians, Jews, Spaniards, Danes,
Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, Bohemians, Italians,
Austrians, Slavs, Poles, Rumanians, Russians and
I've only just begun ; farmers, miners, adventurers,
soldiers, sailors, rich men, poor men, beggar men,
thieves, shoemakers, tailors, actors, musicians, min
isters, engineers, writers, singers, ditch-diggers,
manufacturers, butchers, bakers, and candlestick
These and many more are those to whom
America offers fair opportunity to live decently, to
develop minds and spirits, and to contribute to the
country's greatness. The alien malefactors are dealt '
with the same as the native ones. To all alike is the
ministry of the welfare agencies, of health and edu
cation. To all alike is given the protection of the Bill
of Rights. If practical considerations demand limita
tion of immigration, we need cultivate no animosity
to support our national policy. We may not ,be able
even to like these our "neighbors," but(we can love
them,, which is an entirely different matter. Any
how we needn't act superior because we are richer
and bounded by oceans.

18th Warehouse Opened
By Federation-At Lenoir
LENOIR, Feb. 8. Another West
ern North Carolina county Cald
well was added Jo the territory
served by the Farmers Federation
last Saturday, when the co-op
warehouse was formally opened
In a brief address, to 200 farmers
and business men who attended the
opening .exercises, James G. K. Mc
Clure, federation president, empha
sized the necessity for organization
"As it is now," he said, "the farm
er buys at .another man's price and
on another man's market. To over
come this, farmers must organize;
they must buy cooperatively and
sell cooperatively. . .
"That is what, the Federation is
helping the farmer to do. Some day
I hope we can establish our own
feed mills, our own fertilizer plants
for processing the products of our
farms. That may sound like a
dream; but little by little we can
bring it to fruition. That is the
way little by little that we have
built up the organization we now
have. When we .started in 1920 only
15 men said they would take stock.
Today we have more than , 3,500
Short addresses of welcome in
which the speakers commended the
work of the Federation were made
by Earl Tate, mayor of Lenoir, and
Mark Goforth, chairman of the
Caldwell county board of commis
sioners. ' f
Organization of a county advis
ory committee of 10 members was,
completed .and. two of its members;
Davis F. Tuttle and the Rev. Hugh
A. Dobbins were nominated mem
bers of the co-op's board of di
rectors. ' ' '
Plowing Of Terraced '
Fields Is Explained ,
An automobiile requires oil and
grease to keep it in good condi
tion. Likewise, a terraced field must
have consideration at plowing time
to maintain it, says M. M. Ellis,
agricultural engineer of the State
college extension service.
Farmers in many sections, of
North Carolina will "be breaking
land soon, and unless i.tney use
proper methods of "plowing, the
work they have done during the
winter in building terraces is like
ly to prove worthless. For this
reason, Ellis says, assistant farm
agents r-iir -most counties of the
state are -prepared to conduct dem
onstrations' showing how to plow
terraced fields. V
These demonstrations may be ar
ranged upon request by groups of
farmers, and the agents will at
tempt to make them as convenient
as possible by holding them at or
near the time the breaking of
ground is .started.
In explanation of proper meth
ods of plowing terraced land, Ellis
says: "When breaking land the
terrace should always 'be broken'
first by back-furrowing on the
ridge. The furrows are continued
(throwing the soil toward the
ridge) until the bottom of the flow
line is reached.
"A second furrow is then started
12 to 14 feet above the terrace
channel. Plowing is continued to
ward this back furrow, throwing the
soil uphill out of the channel, un
til the channel is again reached.
This leaves an unbroken strip be
tween terraces which may be brok
en as a separate land.
The distance of the back furrow
above fhe channel should be varied
from year to year to avoid the
formation of a deep dead furrow
midway between terraces and also
a ridge just above the flow line."
