If Greensboro is not an exception to the rule, that order to "go outside the court house" brought heavy disappointment to how-many "professional jurors," who said to themselves, but not out loud, "the fellow can't do that to me." Bill Sharpe explains what a "professional juror" is if indeed you need any formal in troduction to him : "If you attend court now and then you have probably noticed a lot of familiar faces present at every court. These are the 'professional jurors' , . . They sit around the court sessions more faith fully than the lawyers in the fond hope that there will be a shortage of regular jurors and the judge will instruct the bailiff to pick , the needed talismen from the audience." That is the practice that is equalled only by the coroner's selection of the jury that joins him in his fee. As a Usual thing when a case rates an investigation the coroner gets on the grapevine telegraph and in a few minutes he and his same group of jur ors head for the scene. It's an easy way to earn a few dollars or should we say draw a few dollars the while satisfying the curiosity that afflicts most of us in cases of that sort even when we don't get paid. But the courthouse professional has this to commend him as a juror: He has the ex perience. But that's the only good that can be said of him. And if he happens to be on the way out because the judges have combined against it, most of us will be say ing "Glory be." Now if the jurists will take a hand in that other important little matter the habit some lawyers have of treating witnesses as if they were suck-eggdogs, then we'll jump up and pop our heels. Elkin Tribune. For Comfort's Sake In this changing world few things have moved faster than the revolution in men's wearing apparel . Perhaps they have been influenced by women. At any rate the .men have gone in for brevity in a big way. If the weather of the past ten days con tinues over the country no doubt there will be more sudden changes. The hat was abandoned sometime ago as a non-essential. Now President Roosevelt is reported to have held conferences minus his tie, and encouraged others to do so. When the chief executie, indulges in such infor mality the humble citizen ought to havelhe right to leave off his tie. Defense And Unemployment Government officials as well as econom ists are deeply concerned over the ultimate effect of the defense program on the unem ployment problems in this country. If un employment should be solved in this man ner temporarily then the need for WPA would be materially reduced. But if the defense program should fail to absorb the greater number on WPA there will UI1 remain a vast army of unemployed that must somehow be taken care of. Much as we may have differed in. the past with some of the systems in this governmental agency, it still remains in theory the best plan. We much prefer a job to a dole, both from the standpoint of the taxpayer and the man employed. Then we are faced with the uncertainty of how it will all work out. The government naturally is concerned in budget-making, as to certain allocations. Private industry is wondering bow and to what extent the de fense projects will absorb man power. Authorities predict that unless defense production is stepped up above the speed now in prospect over the next few months and there is a boom in civilian production brought on by increased purchasing power we will have serious unemployment problems..''.-. All predictions will have to be based on what may happen in Europe. In case of the termination of war in England's favor our defense activities would naturally mean a less feverish effort on our part. Yet we are destined to see through certain programs on defense activitis not only for present needs, but with an eyej?n future protection. But regardless of the pressing" needs of the present the future must be planned for. The more critical situation we face today will mean the more difficult will be our solution of the problems tomorrow. The Short Cut To Disaster i tJL JUST TAKJt " " ' 1 ' i'" l I . i i ' srs H A SHORT CUT THROUGH ' - --j TM FASTURjrV HERE and THERE HTT.ftA WAY GWYN "Tarhelia On Parade" One of the most interesting and compli mentary articles on North Carolina we have read in sometime appears in the August edi tion of the "National Geographic maga zine under the above title. The article is delightfully written and is profusely illustrated. It covers history, economic conditions, natural resources, scenic beauties, and social life in a complete man . ner. ... ; It touches the Coastal Plain, the Piedmont section and the mountain section, pointing out the good things of each. The article is calculated to make the na tive Tar Heel proud of his state and the out sider anxious to visit a land of opportunity. We advise you to read it. Well, boys ..... you are going to have to plan ahead for the ride with your date "after the show" . . . as curfew has come down on gasoline . . . after seven o'clock . . . filling stations have been such col orful spots In the streets and highways that it will look pretty dull and lonesome . . . after dark . . . but the new regime win have its features . . besides saving gas oline ... they tell us that home to the modern generation is merely a "filling station" . , . perhaps if they can't ride so much at flight . . maybe more folks will take to spending an evening at home maybe well read more . . .. maybe well all find time to develop a greater appreciation of what it means to live in America . - .with its freedom and security . . . we may be denied the privilege of riding to our heart's content at night and the family car will be parked at home in the garage at an earlier hour ... and we will be compelled to economize on gasoline . . . and not ride when the notion strikes us as we once did . . . we still have no serious "blackout" . . . we can still go to bed in peace . . . with no fear of being routed out by a iren proclaiming a bombing raid. Have You Got Yours? Do you have $72.39 cash in your pocket? Well, if you haven't that much, you're be low the average according to the United States treasury. A dispatch from Washington reports "the' treasury yesterday said there was $9,612, 033,124 of coin and currency in circulation on June 30, or an average of $72.39 per per son." v Seventy-two dollars and thirty-nine cents is a nice little sum as pocket money goes, and if you can't count that much on your person, you may be consoled by remember ing there are millions of others in the same boat. The $72.39 Is an average, and the American who is exactly "average" in any thing is one of the most difficult creatures to find. One pleasant and yet possibly ominous note is found in the Washington Dispatch. It says the average circulation per person of $72.29 compares with $71.51 only a month before, and $59.61, almost $13 less, a year ago. It's nice to realize the average per son has more money, and maybe we're wrong, but we seem to sniff something in those fig ures savoring of inflation. Sanford Herald.

In calling for a 12-hour filling station "blackout" in the East, Secretary Ickes fail ed to mention possible loss of employment for night shift workers at stations. Maybe he figured the night owls would be trans ferred to the day shift to take care of in creased sales from customers beating the blackout deadline. Raleigh News and Ob server."

INFLATION' is bad enough. De flation is enough sight worse, however.-.' When prices skyhoot, a chap on a stationary income is in the same fix as if his income had shrunk, correspondingly to the increase in his cost of living. But when the slump comes and the bottom drops out of the prices, this same bird's income is likely to be blotted' out altogether. And every competent economist knows that night follows day no more regularly than a slump follows a skyhoot. All history's proved it with 100 per cent accut- raey. That's why National Price Ad ministrator Leon Henderson, who's a slick economist alright, is scrab bling so desperately to keep the brakes on inflation, as a develop ment in connection with our de fense emergency activities. He's afraid of it, as inflation, Jut he's still more afraid of it as an abso lutely certain precursor of a yet' IT V o let OF THE Peopl Whatdoyo.tkirri r men: Mra. J U .. men earrv irt ' ...
