CDP Plan Spreads
Our neighbors to the west of us, in Jackson
county, are watching with more than passing
interest, the Community Development Pro
gram. In fact, The Sylva Herald cites that the
citizens of Addie have contracted the "conta
gious spirit" and following the example as
set in Haywood.
The Herald in an editorial captioned, "De
velopment" goes on to say:
The citizens of the Addie Community are
setting an example of community develop
ment that we predict will spread to other
communities in the county. These good citi
zens are well on their way with their program
and as results of their work develop interest
will grow that much greater. There is no lim
it to the jjoocl work that can be done in devel
oping a community when there is a true
spirit of cooperation on everyone's part. We
belipve that spirit has developed in the Ad
die community. The roadside clean-up con- '
test to be held Friday evening should create
lots of interest. We are quite sure that those
traveling over 19-A and 23 from the airport
to Addie will see the results of this contest
ifi q much more attractive roadside.
A'll the communities of Jackson County
woujd do well to borrow a page from their
neighbor's book . . . that is the plan for com
munity's development such as Haywood
county has used. Few people probably know
that Haywood county is used as a model by
the extension service down at Raleigh. When
one farmer does something unusual and out
of the ordinary way of things, which turns in
to success, it isn't long until others begin do
ing the same thing. This is the way a com
munity developing program starts. One coun
ty is successful with it and then it flows over
into adjoining counties. It is thus with com
munities within a county. It is not surprising
that Addie is leading the way in Jackson since
it lies near Haywood. The people have observ
ed Community Development and along with
their own desire for better things for their
home and surroundings, they are taking steps
to improve them.

More Light On History
It might be just a coincidence, but shortly
after the Cherokee drama, "Unto These
Hills," closed its first season, at least two mo
tion pictures appeared on parallel themes.
Each involved a little-known event Indians
experienced in the course of American his'
tory.
Though we're inclined to view with sus
picion the quality of any contribution the aV'
erage movie makes to the sum total of human
knowledge, these movies are throwing light
on a part of our history skimmed over in the
school text books, if mentioned at all.
Though the average movie, by its mechan
ical limitations, can at best merely skim the
surface in historical study, this type of pic
ture does stimulate many people to learn
more about the subject it treats.
It may be just a coincidence that this type
of movie started appearing shortly after
"Unto These iills" rang down the curtain on
its first season.
But we're inclined to believe that its tre
mendous popular success started brain waves
reverberating on the West Coast, with results
that should prove highly educational to the
nation's citizens as a whole.

Superficial Divorce Grounds
A Chicago woman sued her husband for
divorce on the ground that his snoring a
mounted to "extreme cruelty."
The judge gave the husband 30 days in
which to cure himself of the snoring habit.
The case was widely publicized, so the de
fendant received hundreds of letters offering
suggestions on how to break himself of his
snores. He tried them all. Apparently some
worked, for he returned to court last week
with letters from three residents at the Y. M.
C. A. where he had been sleeping. These let
ters intimated that he didn't snore any more.
However, the wife's attorney announced
that his client remained cool toward any re-
conciliation with her now snoreless mate. The
20-year-old wife of the 25-year-old egg cand
ler said she didn't want him back anyway.
Perhaps the snoring was just an excuse.
Ostensibly, in states wherein divorces can be
obtained on all sorts of grounds, the real rea
son why some divorce seekers go to court
never appear in the formal complaints. The
plaintiff wants his freedom for one thing or
another, so he has his lawyer devise some
"grounds" such as "incompatibility," "ex
treme mental cruelty," or whatnot.
There are many marriages that obviously
are misfits and probably should be dissolved.
But isn't it quite likely that many more would
"stick," if it were not for the "light and
transient" reasons or "grounds" which are ac
cepted in some states as legal cause for di
vorce? Like "snoring," for instance.

MIRROR OF YOUR MIND
a?SSV
By LAWRENCE GOULD
Consulting Psychologist1
ance ol what your real goals are
for Instance, to thinking that
your goal is success when it really
is a good time. But in any case tha
more your actions are controlled
by your unconscious mind, the
more inconsistent tney will be,
because that part of your mind
contains so many conflicts.
Should you ever give direct advice?
Answer: You cannot entirely
void it But the circumstances
under which you are justified in
doing so ere not unlike those in
which you may have to use force
for example, to save someone
from doing irreparable damage
to himself or others. Advising a
Wife hot to "leave home" until
She is sure that her suspicions of
he husband are well-founded
might be a good illustration, as
would urging a sick person to go
to ;a doctor. But' no one is ever
permanently helped by "follow
ing advice" and it is always better
to help someone see for himself
what he should do than to have
bim do it on your "say-so."
Are anyone's actions
consistent?
Answer: Not entirely. For ex
ample, while you may profess the
same ideals in both cases, your
behavior at the office may be very
different from the side of yourself
that you show at home. Incon
sistency may be due to conflicting
aims in life, to not knowing how
to attain your goals, or to ignor-

May psychology be based on
economics?
'- Answer: I very much doubt it."
Dr. Geza Roheim in "Psychoa
nalysis and Anthropology" dis
cusses another scientist's account
of the customs of a South Sea Is
land tribe, the Alor, In which
many emotional characteristics
are correctly traced to the fact
that mothers habitually leave
their babies at home and half
starved while they go out to work
In the fields which It is claimed
that they have to do "for eco
nomic reasons." But mothers in
other, similar tribes work in the
fields and take their babies with
them. The tribal psychology Is
based, not on economics, but on '
the fact that the Alor women do
not love to Welcome babies.

ANY WORSE?' . Speaking of
roads, work is badly needed on
some of the primary highways.
One of the worst roads in North
Carolina in the primary system is
U. S, 64 from Asheboro to Lexing
ton, Riding on tt Is comparable to
being caught out on a storm sea
in a rowboat.
The State News Bureau reports
that the number of tourists to visit
North Carolina this summer will
be much greater than the number
of people living in our confines.
Let us hope that they don't get
the impression that al' our roads
are like the Lexington-Asheboro
trip.
On the other hand, one of the
best and most beautiful highways
in the State is U. S. 64 from Pitts
boro to Slier City to Asheboro. It's
a honey. But watch your speed.
CROP OF PINES You have
heard the song t0 the effect that
"they cut down the old pine tree;
and they hauled it away to the
mill". That's the story in North
Carolina and throughout the South
land. Soon, however, farmers may be
gin .growing crops of pine trees
just as they do tobacco, cotton, and
corn. The jnain, reason they -have
not planted field's in! pine tree's
that' they have known little about
pines except how to get rid of
them. If a farmer put 50 acres in
young pines, cultivated them, put
fertilizer around them, and work
ed them just as he does his other
crops, how long would it require
for them to be ready for harvest?
That's a question which the
School of Forestry and the N. C.
Agricultural Experiment Station
will try to answer, in cooperation
with the Solvay Process Division
of the Allied Chemical and Dye
Corporation and the N. C. Forestry
Association, the College has with
out fanfare begun a study of the
effects of the application at vari
ous rates of nitrogen, phosphoric
acid and potash on the growth of
pines. The experiment, located in
the Hill Forest in Durham Coun
ty, will cover about seven acres.
The fertilizer will he dissolved
in water and mured into holes
reaching down to the roots of the
,rees The . tree - diameters and
height measurements will be made
each winter throughout the experi
ment. Work will be under the
supervision of Dr. R. J. Preston,
dean of the School of Forestry'
Great areas of the South at one
time lived off the pine, pitch, tar,
turpentine, and lumber. This may
be so again if these experiments
prove successful.
GETTING BETTER DEPT.
L-nurch membership In the Uniti
States has increased 51.5 per cent
since iH as compared with
population increase of only 20
per cent. y
The Protestants have a growth
of 58 per cent; Catholics, 48.4 per
cent; and Jewish, 22.5 per cent.
Speaking of "the good old davs".
in 1780 only five per cent of our
people were church members. In
1850, this had increased to 15 per
cent; and in 1900 had moved up to
35 per cent. In 1940 church mem
bership was 50 per cent of our
population. Last year, the figure
ran to 54 per cent. Of the Protest
ant gains, Southern Baptists were
out in front in the period from
1926 to 1949 with a gain of 91.8
per cent.
This is taken from a survey made
by the National Council of Chur
ches. It takes more than numbers,
brother. We have the quantity.
How about the quality? Incident
ally, do any of our denominations
ever turn anybody out of the
church any more? This used to be
a rather common practice, particu
larly among the Baptist Churches.
If memory serves correctly, one
ornery old guy of these parts was
turned out of the church'' a total
of seven times. One time he got
drunk and let the horse run away
with him, tearing up the buggy
and throwing him out in the ditch
with a pint bottle sticking out of
his pocket and his Sunday suit
caked with red mud. He was found
there In peaceful slumber the
next morning , by a fellow church
member. "-. '
