In reviewing the war years, j
Doughton said that "with victory I
in sight and with the foundations
of a lasting peace already laid,
Hoosevetl was called from us. j
"But his standard was picked up
by another great American - llarrv
I S. Truman . . . and now, as we face
economic ami social problems at
home and abroad, it is good to know ,
'lhat we have in the White House;
an honest, capable and fearless
champion of the American wa . " I
Doughton continued that "the !
conduct of a victorious world war 1
and the revival of America's de
pressed economy called for vast
national expenditures" and that
"reference to either inevitably
leads to the subject of taxation.
"While taxes must remain for a
considerable lime at a higher level
than they were prior to the war."
he said, "we must see to it that
reductions are made just as rap
idly as possible. . . "
It is Doughlon's "hope and be
lief that further substantial reduc
tions can and should be made in
the cost of government. We can
do this." he said, "by abolishing
functious rightfully belonging to
the several slates, and by turning a
deaf ear to the special groups who
flock to Washington for financial
assistance for non-essential pur
poses." Doughlon pointed out that since
January 1. of this year, the treas
ury had retired some $4.000. 000.
000 of maturing obligations.
He added thai the administra
tion and congress "are so confident
that the government debt has
reached its peak and has begun to
recede that the congress is in pro
cess of reducing the permissable
debt limit from SHOD. 000. 000 000
to S275. 000.0011.000.
"It is not unrealistic to assume."
he declared, "that in 1947 we will
have a balanced budget which will
include a reasonable program of
reduction in public debt."
Doughlon pointed with pride to
the American dollar's value on the
world market and said that "with
all the complaint about extrava
gancies made necessary by our
successful lights against depression
within and total war beyond our
boundaries, some of which is un
doubtedly justified, the American
dollar remains the soundest piece
of monev in all the world."
He reviewed the state's record
under Democratic rule, and found
that the state's school system, its
highways, its institutions of higher
learning, its health program in
cluding the state hospital and med
ical care plan all were sound, pro
In conclusion, he pointed to man
ufacturing in North Carolina, which
he said jumped from a total capital
investment of S78.000.000 in 1900
to more than $2,000,000,000 for
1945 . . . and to agriculture, which
he added rose as a result of its
crops from $68,000,000 in 1900 to
$242,000,000 in 1939 placing North
Carolina sixth among the states.
"What a glorious record." he
"Let those who would challenge
it show an example of any state
anywhere equalling it much less
"But," he warned, "next fall the
voters of the state and nation must
again choose between us and the
Republicans. We need have no
fear of the outcome if we are not
lulled into over-confidence. I re
mind you," Doughton said, "that
eternal vigilance is the price of
victory as well as liberty."

This is an architect's drawing of the proposed hospital to be erected by Mrs. J. E. Latham in memory of
her husband, James Erwin Latham 'insert i at Masonic and Eastern Star Home in Greensboro. The hospital
would be a 3()-bed capacity and will give the North Carolina Masons and Eastern Stars full realization of a
dream which they had practically fulfilled when they started construction on the home in 1912.
THE BOOK CORNER
Reading From Left

ear is right here
One of the
saries of the

to MO'l'lll'.K'S DAY. Then, if ever,
we I'eel the urge to remember the
one who ha soever been able to
see any of our faults but who will
rise to our defense at the slightest
hint wo are not perfection itself.
Of course, you have already pur
chased some of the gifts you have
long planned for this day but still
feel that you would like to add a
something that would be constant
reminder of your devotion.
Our suggestion would be a book
as something she could, and would,
keep for a long time and revert
many times to its pages. And the
very best book would be a Bible.
Perhaps the one she has shows
signs of long usage, and the new
ones have such distinct print. Then
for a book closely allied with the
restful spirit of the Great Book,
you could buy "THE KOBE" by
Lloyd Douglas. There is no ne
cessity for going into detail about
this book; lor nearly three years
it has led the vanguard of best
One of the newest books out is
"THE WESTMINSTER DICTION
ARY OF THE BIBLE" by John D.
Davis. The title is self-explanatory.
And what mother doesn't love a
book of poems? Here is a small,
compact volume, light to handle
and complete with those poems that
lie closest to Hie heart. It is "ONE
HUNDRED AND ONE EAMOUS
POEMS." Who can ever forgi the
beauty of Prank Stanton's poem,
"Keep A-Goin' "?
"If you strike a thorn or rose,
ff it hails or if it snows.
Por lighter reading, why not give
her a copy of "JANUARY THAW"
by Bellamy Pari ridge'.' It is inter

keeps you on your toes until the

best cooks in the world like new

book? "CASSEROLE COOKERY"
by Marion and Nino Tracy is a
splendid way to learn the mastery
of one-dish meals. There are 150
recipes, and the menus include the
salads to go wilh the casserole. In
other words, lead the recipe, fol
low instructions and then call your
family. Their response will attest
to the goodness of this book.
And who in the world doesn't
have sudden qualms when writing
a letter? How on earth to spell
such-and-such a word! Most of the
dislike for letter writing will be
dispelled if you give Mother one
of the new desk size Funk and
Wagnall's STANDARD DICTION
ARIES. There is everything in it.
This is ONE place where you can
find HAPPINESS, and almost any
other word you can conjure up.
