Money Safe
As far as the banks arc cniieenietl money
has been mighty safe during the past '11
months. accurdiiiK to the I'YiIeral Deposit
Insurance Corporation, which recently re
ported that there has not lieen a single bank
failure in the United States in the past 27
Money, we' are sure, has slipped through
many careless hands during that period, since
it has flowed in the mightiest stream it has
ever been recorded in this nation. It may
not have been safe in the hands of the indi
vidual, it has evidently been so in the custody
of our banks.
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
also reports that of 11,7 10 banks in operation
on June lid, l-'i.-Vid or D'J per cent, with de
posits approximating' $1."0, ()(), (H)IU()( were
insured by it, which gives a lot of stability
to banking1 circles ns well as confidence to
the depositors.
The official organ of the State Highway
and Public Works Commission of this state,
recently published the following editorial on
the status of the Illue Kidge Parkway in this
.section. The encouraging feature of editor
ial, is that Chairman A. II. (iraham is listed
as among those "concerned with the future"
of the Parkway.
The editorial is as follows:
The lilue Ridge Parkway, first of its type
and scale, when completed will thread
through 48") miles of eastern America's most
beautiful mountain scenery from the Shen
andoah National Park in Virginia to the
Great .Smoky National Park in North Caro
lina and Tennessee.
The scenic drive averages :'. in feet above
sea level and more than :() miles of the
federally-financed project had been brought
to various stages of completion prior to the
In North Carolina the parkway enters at
Cumberland Knob Park in Alleghany county
and winds 271 miles through the mountains
across the state to Newfound Gap in the
Great Smoky Park where the road dips into
Term, ssee.
The parkway is open to travel-hungry
Americans from the Virginia line down to
near Asheville with the exception of sections
of the parkway near Blowing Rock and Mt.
Mitchell. There is a detour on paved state
highway around the uncompleted Plowing
Rock section.
lloweyer, the fate of the proposed iMi-mile
section between N. C. GO 1 northeast of Ashe
ville to N. C. 107 south of Smokemont in the
Great Smoky Park has troubled many inter
ested North Carolinians.
One of them, Chairman A. II. Graham of
the Commission went to Washington last
week to seek support for completion of the
parkway route as approved by Harold L.
Ickes when he was Secretary of the Interior.
The Chairman returned with encouraging
news that Senator Clyde K. Hoey, a congres
sional champion of the parkway in North
Carolina, has voiced his active support for
completion of the project.
The Senator's interest and support in the
parkway is already well-known. Only re
cently he pushed through Congress a boost
in ' parkway appropriations from $7,500,000
to $11,500,000.
Although many people are not acquainted
with the postal laws enough to know better,
chain letters and postal cards are illegal and
persons who write them expose themselves
to prosecution. .Many of these letters ;.,-e o'i

that "there are no exceptions insular ;i the

The Secret Is Out
We have read much aiioii! t he an it in!,- of
Russia toward this country. ! i i v. it.
are suspicious and have taken the at'it'id
that we may expect an.vl liing iVoin Ku -i.i
the future. Most nf them hne wriM-n 1 r. . i
what others have reported.
Harper's Magazine .sent a reporter lo tii.i
the situation and he has at last pi net raled
"Russia's iron curtain" and found that, of
all things, it is fear that imperialistic fa-ci-m
may be spawning in the United Slates today.
Some of the facts cleared up by the Har
per reporter reveal that Stalin does not run
a one-man show government, as most of p
have been thinking, but lhal he takes or'! !
from a 1 l-man conl rol grou i.
It was brought out thai it will be at least
II) more years before certain areas eel back
to pre-war condit ions. Russia's approach to
international affairs stems from insecurity.'
and they are afraid of foreign at lack: and
that the attack, they believe will come from
Die United States.
The Russians, it seems, are certain that
the United Stales will not be able lo pr .-n'
an economic boom and another deer - ".
This, they feel, will see the I :;'!. of m
American dictator, violently anli-lbi
who will want to invade n Hitler diu.
To most of us here in America t la ;r ,;,-.,,

it is not a cheerful thought to l'i . I that 'he
Russians are fostering such ;ik;e w ha h u

In a recent issue nf the l"ni.i's;t v News
Letter it was revealed from a report com
piled by Dr. Wiley 1!. Sanders. ,.f the t'ui
versity, that one-half of the iuv.'ii:'
delinquents who have apieai'ed in N'mlh
Carolina courts during the pa-i five ye u-s
have come from broken homes.
Dr. Sanders has been making a study nt'
juvenile delinquency for the -date di-i.a-'-ment
of public welfare. Records ot th-- mar
ital status of parents were availao'.- in S..', is
of the 12.02-1 individual delinquent s handled
by the juvenile courts in (he - late from .lidy
1. 10."0, through .lime :',0. I'd ! I.
"The principal conclusion which v.v hiy
drawn in this survey." Dr. Sanders observed,
"is that any forces which tend 'o preserve ,
the family life in a community 1 nd to pre
vent juvenile delinquency as w. II."
Divorce, separation and desertion account
ed for 1(.. per cent of the broken home.-,
the report shows. In ID.!) per cent the father
was dead, and in 8.1 per cent the mother v.a
dead. Both parents were- dead in b. I per
cent of the cases. Rural delinquents came
from broken homes in 18..". per cent of the
cases, while city delinquents have a broken
home rate of 51.7 per cent.
The question always comes up of the re
sponsibilitV of the parents to the child as
against their own relations, and personal
happiness. There is much to be said on both
sides, for a child reared in an unhappy atmos
phere is bound to have unstable emotional -reactions.
They are torn in their loyalty
between their affection for both mother and
father. The remedy goes back to the court
ship days when more time and thought
should be given to whether or not the couple
have the qualities that will make for the
deadly routine of every day living. It takes
more than romance to establish matrimony
on a sound permanent basis.
