FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 19-1G
Religious Education Week begins on the
2!Hh of this month in the United States and
possessions. It will be the purpose of teach
ers all over these United States to stress
religion and better education in religion to
young people that week.
Perhaps one of the most pressing prob
lems in the country today, religious educa
tion, has been neglected in many homes
during the war and youth in this country
have had their minds on lighting, killing and
harsh opinions of other nations and peoples.
While it will not be the duty of religious
education teachers in this country to teach
young people to expect good out of every
person or race, it is their hope to instill a
personal religion and religious belief in
humanity as a whole.
The emphasis being laid on Religious
Education Week this year is not misplaced.
J. Edgar Hoover, director of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, recently said: "I can
not imagine my own life in my youth or
now without religion. Without it there is
only catastrophe for our country and all on
earth. With it there is no limit to which
our scientific progress, our industrial skill,
or national strength may lead us."
Hoover went further than that. lie pointed
out the sharp rise in crime since the end of
the war. saying that in 1944 the major crimes
committed m this country were over twelve
per cent lower than in 1945. He stated that
forty-nine per cent of the burglars, sixty-one
per cent of the car thieves, thirty per cent
of the rapists, thirty-five per cent of the rob
bers, and thirty-five per cent of the thieves
were youngsters under the voting age in
These percentages are high, considering
figures of past years. They will be lowered
in future years, we all hope. And one of
the best campaigns being conducted today to
help lower those totals is that which is being
waged by the International Council of Re
ligious Education. To their plea that we
observe Religious Education Week this year
with more than passive support, we can hard
ly afford to turn a deaf ear.
From London comes the news that British
airplane plants are producing aluminum
houses which can be put together in less
than two hours.
The houses leave the factories complete
in four sections, with electric wiring and
plumbing in place and wardrobes, cupboards
and a heating plant.
The houses have four rooms and a bath
and sell for $5,400. They are one of the pre
fabricated styles with which the British hope
to replace the 4,500,000 dwellings destroyed
during the war. While designed for tempo
rary use, it is estimated that they can last
for twenty years or more.
The use of prefabricated houses is not
new but, in this country, as in England, the
process of adoption is slow. Current produc
tion in both countries represents only a small
fraction of the homes that are necessary to
meet the housing shortage. Obviously, the
prefabricated houses can help in the emerg
ency, but it will take some form of mass
production on a stupendous scale to bring
prices down to suit the pocketbooks of many
families which need better housing.
January Soon Enough
There have beta a good many suggestions!
that the president call a special session of
Congress to legislate on some of the current
problems. Mr. Truman seems not to care to
follow them. We doubt if a special session
would have set well with the public at this
There may be much needed legislation at
this time but it seems to us that both the
people and the Solons should have a little
time to get their bearings and take a look at
things. While most of us have been disap
pointed at the tempo of the reconversion
period, we must bear in mind how much hap
pened in such a short time, and that to un
tangle the results of the speeded era, it is
going to take time.
It may take enough" time for some of us to
learn from sad experience that we will have
to work these problems out in a cooperative
manner, and not one group expect to hand
out orders with a high hand of authority.
We think that President Truman showed
balance when be turned a deaf ear to the
urge for a special session. Come January,
1947, will be time enough to try to work out
of the turmoil, which no doubt will (luring
the interim shape up so that a better diag
nosis may be made from the symptoms, which
will be more pronounced.
To Avoid Sudden Death
The king of amateur sports is arriving all
over the country today. Football the big'
college sport in this country begins in
earnest this week and next in every State in
the Union, with it come cooler weather, and
the football trips nearly every business man
Every year there are many unnocessarv
deaths resulting from too much exuberance
on the part of some fans. The long drive
home sometimes is dangerous because of bad
weather hazards and crowded highways and
reckless, rushing drivers. The most fatali
ties occur after the game, not before.
Each year the various state highway de
partments appeal for motorists to drive to
and from the big games carefully and avoid
unnecessary risks on the road. But the toll
after each big game nevertheless remains
Probably the best way to prevent acci
dents and costly wrecks on week-ends to
come, is a program of constant warning and
appeal to motorists before the season gets
under way. This appeal is being made to
you in the hope that it may save your life,
your car or some other person's life some
cold, icy Saturday afternoon this fall.

U. S. Autos Go Abroad
Before World War II, American-made auto
mobiles and trucks appeared in practically
every market of the world. Since the end of
hostilities, American automobile manufac
turers have shipped about six per cent of
their output into foreign countries, seeking
to retain the markets previously won.
In the first seven months of this year, the
motor vehicle industry produced 849,804 pas
senger cars and shipped 51,452 of them to
foreign countries. Of the ."542,744 trucks and
other commercial vehicles produced, foreign
markets received 83,059.
The automobile industry in this countrv
is one that has not required high tariff pro
tection for its growth. In fact, many foreign
countries have established a system of im
port controls in order to prevent American
cars from predominating their markets. Ap
parently, the automobile industry in this
country is able to make cars cheaper than
the foreign manufacturers and stands an ex
cellent chance of developing a tremendous
export business, if world trade conditions are
arranged in a manner to encourage increased
If this proves to be the case, the automobile !
industry will give work to many thousands!
of Americans. In return, if they arc wise, the i
American people will purchase some of the
goods and services of other nations. In no!
other way can world trade be promoted
is impossible to sell all the time without k.,u
ing because, fundamentally, world trade is a;
matter ot swapping and cannot prosper when
the traffic moves in only one direction.

Dear .Mr. Hiier:
When il was mv opportunity and
pleasure to have been among those
present in I he Armory at Waynes
ville last Friday night, I made a
mental note and reduced it to
writing, when your name was men
tioned as the individual who had
prepared the meat for the occasion.
II happens that I have a little farm
ing effoi I diivn here in Nash coun
ty and a few Iterefords that might
lend themselves to the making of
delicious barbecue like that one, if
we knew how to prepare it.
At any rate, won't you use the
enclosed stamped envelope and let
me know how it is done and maybe
it 1 cm gel sufficient instructions
and have confidence enough in my
self, 1 will undertake to do some
thing of the sort clown here.
Again let me thank you for the
wMuderful occasion which ail of us
en.io.M'd and your efforts were a
distinct contribution to it all.

War And Education
There is one definite result of World War
II, and that is the response to the advantages
offered throtifihout the GI Bill of Rights in
its educational departments.
North Carolina colleges have hit an all
high record with the current enrollments.
The total number now attending institutions
in the state stands approximately at 40,000
according to an announcement made by Dr.
James E. Hillman, director of the division of
Professional Services of the State Board of
Education. Of this number- 7,000 are Negro
This year's estimate shows an increase "of
approximately 10 000 over-the high of 30,000
students shortly before the war.
