Highway Commission's Crusoe Stunt
The State Highway commission,
like other creatures, can make er

nesday when the throngs pf people
gathered to see the new bridge across
the wide Chowan river, but found
the Highway commission had forgot
ten to build a road to it.
It looked very much like the deed
of Kobinson Crusoe vdieiLJio built his
large boat and had no way to get it■
into the water.

Agricultural Schools and Peace
The report co-mC-s from the League
vf Nations that one of the greatest
factors so far seen "to promote per
manent peace is the American agri
cultural schools among the peasants
of the Near East. There the humble
people are enabled to see the good life
as they never seen before. The
political field has failed to give peace
and prosperity; rather, it has led
people apart and created strife and
Political leaders do not want men
tc know each other because they
know it leaves no place for them to
play their political tricks.
Now that the poor people of the
East see the good in the American
by sight, they have learned to love

Your Ihity to Vote
Will the time ever come when we
will appreciate the importance of vot
ing in elections ? Most of us are in
terested in law enforcement and we
wunt good schools. Certainly we would
like for our children to be protected
in every way possible. We want them
to be prepared for useful service. Yet
some of u sdo not associate the polls
with the things we so much desire.
I have known good citizens to go
fishing or to a baseball same on
election day yet claim not to have
time to vote. The votes of good citi
zens are needed more than the others.
If you love your town, your county,
your country and its flag, go to the
polls and vote.
And remember if you do not vote
you have little right to say that the
wrong men are in office. You are to
blame for the result. It's your fault
when men known to be crooked are
e'ected to office. The cap of neglect
fas those who do not vote and there
is nothing else to do but wear it.
: "Whenever there is an election, re
gardless of how busy you may be, re
member it is your duty* to help pull
for the best man.
There is nothing in this world more
r. frf ii"*
valuable than a comrade and pal.
Everyone needs a comrade. There
comes a time in each of our lives
when adversity tests our courage.
Often for days at time it seems we
And new thorns and brumbies in our
path. Then we need, more than any
thing else, a pal.
It is very easy to .have a comrade
and friend but strange to say there
are few who have real pals. Some
how we can better go our way with
out heeding any obstacles in our
path when we have by our side some
one who is sincere and true. Father,
mother, brother, sister or someone to

whom we can go when we find it hard
to carry on.
I recently lost a good pal. He was
only a dog but Jack was a wonderful
comrade. Regardless of how my hu
man friends treated me Jack was al
ways the same. Kind and loving, he
was a real pal.
Make someone your pal. Your wife
or sweetheart or someone who will be
true blue. Then you be someone's pal.
Be just the kind of pal you want .your
pal to be? Do not be an easy pal but
always be without a trait of quit or
discouragement. With the steel of
courage always showing, slip up
r.ilently to your pal and let him know
that you will be near when it's cold
end when it's dark.

Mr. Gandhi is a thorough --believer
in the Golden Rule as a guiding prin
ciple for nations as well as for in- ,
diViduuls, and his support will mean
a great deal for the international
Golden Rule movement fostered by
Mr. Vickrey through his philanthropic
activities for the children of Bible
In his present trip around the
world, Mr. Vickrey has already pre
sented his credentials as a "Golden
Rule Ambassador" from America to
the peoples of Japan, Australia,
China and Siam. Mont people look
upon the Near East Relief as in
fluencing strategically few millions
of people in Turkey, Syria, Pales-

observers travelling through eastern

conception of geography and inter
national relations, and they find that
American philanthropy has become
