(One Day Nearer Victory) THURSDAY, APR
By THOMPSON GREENWOOD
POSTPONED As you probably
know by n6w, the Jefferson Day
Dinner scheduled to be held in
Haleigh Wednesday has been in
definitely postponed. President
Harry Truman, who was to tonic
to Raleigh as principal speaker, is
now too busy to leave Washing
ton even for the San Francisco
Conference, muiii less a meeting
of North Carolina Democrats in
FISHING - Nothing was going
to be said about it. but plans bad
been made for President Truman
to spend three or four days in
North Carolina, lie bad planned
to do a lot of fishing here and
generally to become better ac
quainted with the people of Dixi's
leading state, going amit the
pleasantries in typical leisurely
Vice Presidential manner.
Several weeks ago he asked for
a bodyguard, pointing out at the
time that a N ice President is im
portant, loo. and he was given one.
But hero around Haleigh he could
hav ogono about bis business just
like a regular cilien.
FKNC'F.I) Now President Tru
man is fenced in by the Soi l el
Service, the Kill, and the law of
the land. Whether ho I ik-s it or
not. be can never be really alone
again while he is President W hen
he travels, rails will be checked
in advance anil big, bulky, smart
bodyguards will be stationed
wherever he stops. This reporter
became acquainted ' wit li the late
Mr. Starling, who was in charge of
Roosevelt s strong men. in Klia

tectors. Truman will not he a per
sonality, but the President, and it
is their duty to protect the Presi
dent, whether it be Wallace, Dewey.
Mrs. Roosevelt, or Truman. And
they do it with a thoroughness
that is amazing.
When lioosovclt took a trip.
Stalling was always irritable and
worried until he was safely back
in the White House again. Hut the
vigil never relaxed at any moment.
And it will not now.
President Truman's life is not
his own now. It belongs to you
and me. to the people of the Nation.
AMBITION Most mothers look
on their bright little sons who
have made A's in their "books"
and remark aloud, or to them
selves: "Some day he may be
President " Such simple state
ments are the soul and body of a
democracy, where one's ambitions
can go the full length of his capa
bilities President Truman has
never finished college. He enter
ed the last war as a private and
came out a major. Kleven years
ago ho regarded himself as some
uhal ol a failure. He was deeply
in debt and held a little political
office. The Truman farm where
he plowed those straight furrows
was under a heavy mortgage, and
two-thirds of it ha joen sold from
under the Trum i name.
Now Tinman is the President of
the greatest Nation the world has
Kl'l 'KIT What will be the ef
leet of Truman's becoming Presi

politics.' Well, undoubtedly Sena
tor Bailey will have much more
power under the new President,

Senator lloey. will likely not have

they had with KDH. Duo to the
great friendship between Josephus
Daniels and President Roosevelt,
North Carolina was in a very
favorable position under the New
Deal. And with the appointment
of Son Jonathan to the White
House .secretarial, the position im
proved. It is not known whether Jona
than Daniels will remain at the
White House. Such appointments
are based Irequently on personsJ
relationships between the appoints

good that Daniels can stay if he

WAR II EN Comptroller Lindsay
Warren refused the Federal judge
appointment lor K.astren North
Carolina out of loyalty to his close
personal friend, Franklin D.
Roosevelt. Now that Roosevelt is
dead, and the judge has not yet
boon named. Warren might be in
terested. If it isn't Warren, it
might well be Stanley Winhorne,
of Raleigh, good friend of Bailey.
In fact, you can put Winbourne
down as the next judge for East
ern North Carolina. Now until
Roosevelt died, Winhorne was com
pletely out of it, and Don Gilliam
was the man, because he was an
ardent liberal and New Dealer.
Winhorne is conservative, for big
business and that sort of thing.
He's a good man. but Roosevelt
would never have accepted him.
Bailey served in the Senate 10
years with President Truman.
Don't forget that.
HIGHWAY Within the next
seven days. Governor Cherry will
appoint his Chairman of the State
Highway Commission. Former
Lieutenant Governor W. P. Hor
ton, of Pittshoro, will probably got
the place. Though a fine liberal,
he is a friend of business. Horton
is not too enthusiastic to take the
place, but chances are he will be

A combined heater and afr cir

with discarded ammunition cases
filled with dirt and covered with
burlap. Scrap sieel has been fash

layer of soil serves as further pro
