THE OPPORTUNITY RIGHT HERE
A good place to live seems t« be
the desire of most num. Yet we too
often fail to use propory judgment in
making our selections. The thing
that calls us generally is the accom*
plishments of others. We rush where
improvement* have already been
wrought, where the roads, the bridges,
the houses have already been built
and paid for and the lanftx already
cleared. We rush to tlw reaping*
rather than to the sowing We had
rather spend than to earn.
We see people rush to the places of
beauty and wealth, often passing gold
en opportunities that they tlit ni.vN t
might build up a good place to live.
The real man is he who designs his
place in society, social and business
life in the solid rock and pecks it to
perfection himself rather thun .to ft
dapt the country and improvements of
the other fellow, just because it is
easier. What wc need to do is to
seek the places of open opportunity;
where we may be able to build, our!
own cities and monuments.
Then we should seek places of op
portunity, such as soil, climate and!
How about Eastern Carolinu as a!
good place to live, if the soil, climate]
and location count? It is not u far
statement to say that we outclass
Florida and western North Carolina a
long way. They may be good places
to live and spend your money, but if
you really want a good place to live
and make your money stay where you
are, the laws of economics make east
ern North Carolina a good place to
live in. There are few places,on earth
that have -more advantage* in- fertili
ty, transportation, climate, uniform
rainfall, close to the best of markets,
with purity of race, than eastern Car
olina. The land that not only feeds
itself but others.
Those who are looking for a place
to live and who are willing to work!
for their living should come to east
ern Carolina—a good place to live.
FOREST CONSERVATION AND RE
Will Martin County join the forest
conservation and renewal campaign to
be conducted next week?
Many people who are bom and
reared among the" trees fail to appre
ciate their importance and value to
animal and plant life.
The trees furnish shelter for prac
tically every living thing. Th? wild
twit not only finds rest under their
■had* bat protection against the storm
and cold. Man makes a further use
•f the tree in building houses in which
There i a nothing is all oi God's
creation so generally used by every
thing, both great and small, and
•verywhera, a# the trei, except tlie
air and the prater. /
Then ft is important! that we con-
serve the trees. We can plant u seed
_ -jlimL Gikl will produce a tree, or we
carrfurelesaly drop a match and burn
down thousands thut have required
u a ctintuyy for growth
In some countries where they have
-passed the wasteful stage, the forest
is protected by laws equally ay strin
gent as the laws which protect the
barns, stores, and homes of the peo
; l' le -
In our own -eountries wo have laws
aguinst fires and forest destruction,
- yet we do not enforce them very
' much. The actual loss by careless
1 and malicious (Ires in our \>wn coun
• ty is many times greater each year
* than from all the stealing done in the
' county; yet we i'md few lire cases on
1 the criminal docket, while we find the
> same docket crowded with stealing
' Timber experts say that it is easi
' ly possible for an acre of land to
' Kfow all the way from $1 to (!> in
timber value* each year when proper
care is taken and fires kept out.
U takes five years to grow a long
' leaf pine live ne lics high, While it will
grow 10 feet thf oixoiid five years,
1 This makes it very dirfieult to renew
' a long-leaf forest where the land is
' swept each year by tire. -The young

, if every citizen would exercise his
full duty by attending his convention'
making his wishes known and demand

Conventions are just as essential to
good government as seed are for the
