Another Armistice Day Thought
Dr. Elliott Ross, of struck the nail square
ly on the head when he said that our chief trouble
is failure to tell the truth. He stated that we have
war because we fail in truth. Describing the spirit
of Armistice exercises, he says we exhibit the spirit
of war—that is, we exalt our victory, power and glory
as a great nation, rather than mourn with those who
are grieving for lost ones, and those who are still
suffering and dying from the horrors of the World
Surely the people should truthfully look at war as
a black, death-dealing horror rather than as a glor
The W r orld War is a clear example, for the world
killed and maimed millions and bankrupted itself.
It should weep in disgrace rather than gloat in vain
The Navy League
What is the Navy League? Is it not an organiza
tion fostered and fed by-those who ignore our na
tional welfare, who wish to turn the treasury over to
the exploitations of those who have (lersonal ends to
serve—navy yards, ship builders, munition manufact
urers, and to high officials who want promotions, prom
inence, and money for themselves and their friends?

GREENVILLE, N. C. "When Tobacco Sells Higher, Joyner Warehouse Will Sell It"
Is il any more than a bunch of sdfisb self-styled
safety advisers deliberately trying to direct the poli
cies of the government, taking them from the Con
gress, the president, and the cabinet.
Isn't the Navy League one of the cur9es of the
country, more interested in selfishness and, bigotry
than in peace and safety? It is undoubtedly a prod
uct of selfishness, fostered by greed and self-centered
ness, one of its main purposes being to spread false
propaganda to an innocent people in order to make
them hate other folks, and fear them, so that they
may be exploited for war preparations. '
U. N. C.'s New President
North Carolina has reason to be proud of the new
president of the University.
Dr. Frank P. Graham may not have the same as
pirations that some of his predecessors have had for
high-sounding critical education, but when it comes
to being on a level and furnishing a safe and sound
leadership that will stand the tides of time, he
measures up to the task he has. And we may look
fur a leadership that will hold the institution in its
present high [x>sition among the State Universites.
Rushing Peanuts To Market
Practically all the jieanut buyers in the country had
to stop buying the latter part of last week, because
they could not weigh as fast as the peanuts were be
ing rushed on the .market. The price can not pos
sibly go up with this condition prevailing.
Farmers ought to know that the buyers can not
handle the crop in a rush, and that when the farmer
shows so much anxiety to sell the buyers are going
to ttfke the peanuts at a low price.
Buying and Selling
It is strange that buyers go wild to buy when prices
are going up, and sellers go crazy to sell when prices
are going down. , .
If the [>eanut farmer will market his crop slowly,
there will be no reason for the prices to go lower.
On the other hand, if farmers keep rushing them on
the market, the price may go to nothing.
'lt is very important for all farmers who can hold
or store their peanuts to do so. It will help the price.

Senator Norris's Proposal
We are 100 per cent with Senator Norris in -his
proposal for the Federal Government to spend three
billion dollars for roads in the: United States. This
would mean that North Carolina, an average State,
would get and counting Martin as an
average county, it would mean $600,000 for our coun
ty. This would not only boost business, but it would
also give us a fine road system in the county. We
are for roads if the United States is to build them.
