The Brewing Industry, jealous of beer's good name,
employs self-regulation to maintain wholesome condi
tions where beer is sold.
The beer dealer's license pledge binds him not to sell to
minors, or to those who have orer-indulged. It pro
hibits gambling rough or coarse language or hang ,
ers-on of a questionable character.
Those dealers who do not observe these simple rule
are not welcome in this business. To them w say:
"Clean Up or Close Up". If they don't clean up, after
being warned, state enforcement officials will usually
revoke their licenses) on our complaint.

On The Tar Heel Front
By Robert A. Erwin and Frances McKusick
Allied victories in Egypt have
pushed everything else off the front
pages in Washington with the ex
ception of passage of the 18-19
year-old draft bill without benefit
of the year's training amendment.
The consensus here is that had
the second front opened a week or
two prior to elections, the returns
would have been vastly different.
That is, of pourse, debatable for
it has been evident throughout most
of the country that fewer persons
actually went to the polls to vote
this year than in many a moon,
thus indicating a lack of interest
Anyhow, we have our second
front, and our swift blitz-like vic
tories, politics or no politics. We're
on the road to ultimate victory and
that is all that matters.
North Carolina solons are jubi
lant over our military progress.
From 25 to 30 employees of the
accounts division of the Post Office
Department will accompany the
Postal Accounts Division of the
General Accounting Office when it
moves to Asheville Jaunary 1, ac
cording to Controller General Lind
say C. Warren.
Transfer of the GAO unit itself
was announced earlier last week.
Warren explained that the Post
Office Department had to maintain
a staff of its own to cooperate with
the branch of General Accounting
that audits the department's books,
and therefore, it would be better
for the post office group to go
along to Asheville. .
Warren said he hoped to move
his own headquarters from the Old
Pension Office Building here to a
new structure on Friendship Estate,
on Wisconsin Avenue, by January
Friendship was formerly owned
by Mrs. Evalyn Walsh McLean,
Senator Reynolds mother-in-law.
It looks as though you Just can't
keep North Carolina military men
out of generalships.
Latest rise to Brigadier General
is Col. Luther S. Smith, of Troy,
41-year-old director of individual
training for the Army Air Forces.
"tjoionei smith, ' he said the oth
er day as he picked up the telephone
to answer congratulatory calls of
friends. He was awaiting comple
tion of the formality of Senate con
firmation. It was refreshing to
phone his office, incidentally, be
cause the feminine secretary didn't
bother to inquire "Who's calling,
Farmer Roh Tlraiphton is now
only one year away from 80 which
is a much too roundabout way to
sav that he celebrated his 70th
birthday anniversary on November
The celebration was tvnieal of
Mr. Douerhton it consisted of tmt.-
ting in a day of hard work as per
He described himself as "in ex
cellent health and spirits and at
peace with all mankind."
"There's not one ounce of hatred
in my heart toward any living
soul," remarked Farmer Bob as he
marked another milestone, one that
he passed in his 32nd consecutive
year as a member of Congress, in
his 10th as chairman of the House
Ways and Means Committee.
Well-wishers included the giant
mountaineer's own office staff, his
(Congressional colleagues, Capitol
clerks and policemen, newsmen and
visiting Tar Heels.
Striding into his office at 8:15
a. m. to start the day's work, Far
mer Bob looked as good as ever.
There was a spring in his step, his
eyes were clear, and he was ready
for an accumulation of mail that
had piled up while he was home
during the election.
Incidentally, Mr. Doughton has
told the President of his "hearty
endorsement" of Federal Circuit
Judge John J. Parker of Charlotte
to fill the vacancy on the Supreme
Court bench caused by the resig
nation of Associate Justice Byrnes,
who was appointed administrator
of price stabilization.
"I told-the President I felt no
man could better fill the vacancy

grateful to the folks back home who ore doing everfhng
' possible to help war production. Everything that helps wot

By helping to keep long dittanos telephone lines clear for war
calls, you help speed war production. War calls are crowding
telephone lines especially the "long haul" lines which ars
the most heavily loaded with war business. The greater ths
distance you talk, the greater the likelihood of delaying vital
war calls. To keep telephone lines clear for our armed forces,
war industries and civilian defense agencies, is our lob hers
:- at home.
We cannot add new lines because materials are mors
urgently needed to equip our fighters. Therefore, to make mors
room on crowded long distance lines for Important war busi
ness, telephone users are urged to make only absolutely essen
tial calls and to be brief in all conversations.
War takes no holiday, so please do not use "long dis
tance" to exchange Thanksgiving greetings.
