Zeroes Are Pesky Things
Anyone handling figure? realises that a
little zero can often cause a lot of trouble.
In two recent editorials, we seem to have
In trying to compare aceraye for growing
lood crops to the size of Lake Junaluska. we
dropped a .ero and said ten instead of one
hundred. A lot of difference, and an error
we discovered "too late."
Jn another editorial about the Aliens Creek
church we mentioned their contribution for
the year to the Baptist Hospital. We said
$1,000. when actually the gift was not that
much. However, in fairness to ourselves,
we took the iinu'f'e from a printed report
furnished us. but also learned "loo kite" the
report was in error.
The Aliens Creek folks are generous in
'.heir gifts, but did not want the world to
get the wronc impression.
Yes. those little round figures can make
a lot of dilference. and they are so small
when being handled that they are easy to
drop, or cling together. However, we are
sorry for all the extras that get in, or for all
we fail to get in.
Unity And Progress
The eiuut county is interested in the news
that the First Baptist church has climaxed
their expansion program by purchasing the
Main Street lot adjoining their property for
a modern and large auditorium.
It seems fitting that such a decision, and
announcement was made during Holy Week,
and just prior to Easter.
The expansion program of the church was
launched several years ayo. Nothing definite
at the time was decided upon. The plan back
then was to start getting money for the pro
gram, and make neccessary decisions as to
how, what, and where at the proper time.
That decision has now been made.
The exact details of the modern auditorium 1
are to be worked out by officials of the church
and an architect. The church in conference,
voting unamiously for the, entire program,;
and stipulated that the auditorium seat about '
The church is solidly behind the program.
The fact that there was not. a dissenting vote
on any of the final propositions presented to
the church, within itself assures success.
A number of proposals were considered for !
expanding the facilities of the church. A jre-!
modeling program was studied at length. Qne :
major problem which confronted the; Baptists
in remodeling was finding suitable quarters
for carrying on the work during the con- j
struction period. Under the present plan, the
erection ot the auditorium .will not in any
ways interfere with the church work.
Buildings now in use will not be bothered

trom a recent poll that only about half the
men in the country wear pajamas.

However, we are not going to Jet this
grave deficiency pass without questioning the
polling methods of the Department. Only
2.L'00 men were questioned and they were
supposed to represent a true cross-section of
5o.U00.000 men over 16.
