Dr. Hubert William Hurt, nation
al director of research for the Boy
Scouts of America, the plrnclpal
speaker, was introduced by Dr. Da
vid J. Rose '
Drr Hurt charged that "we got
into World .War H the cause of
affliction to humanity and which
has set civilization back many yeat-;
because: of a moral breakdown
and failure, to respect the - Ten
Commandments." The ills of our
time are largely due to deflation
of mpral values, The big job Jf
civilization is to rear up our suc
cessors." ' In this -connection . he
pointed out that in the United
States more Is spent for cosmetics
than for education.
The second Job of civilization,
the speaker said, is to make' our
successors human and help them
to care about other people.. He ci
ted Scouting as something very
definite in this movement with 14,
000,000 men and boys identified
with Scouting in the past third of

r i an oppor-
et for the boys of this area: 1. A
chance to do things, bear responsi
bility, take part in things worth
while and gain experience. 2. A
chance to develop interests and
hobbies, make use of contact with
merit badge councilors to help
guide their lives In what they want
to do. 3. Many friends. 4. Chances
to do things for other people and
that thev may love America. The
best way to tram for citizenship is
to have experience in it. He urged
that chances be made for young
people to serve the community and
suggested "let's get above the sal
vage level, though that's import
ant at times." 5. Religion. Religion
tends to make people more honest.
"I doubt that the human animal
can develop into a social animal
without outside precepts," he said,
and "urged to look away from self
when you pray" and .lake "re
ligion a compass in life pointing
to., worthwhile things." ... js :
Termihg the missing ingredient
of what is needed most in the world
now tnat more people care more
about others Dr. Hurt said that
homes would not be broken in Re
no, our 15 or 16 minorities would
not be as uncomfortable as thoy
are, there would be better relations
between employers and employees.
If there was more care for other.;,
the world would have the problems
we have the Unit-id Nations
would have smoother sailing.
, Pointing out that the spiritual
essence ,of Scouting is the good
turn doing something for others
Dr. Hurt said "If we can engen
der care for others, we may havi
the kind of world which God in
tended." In his president's report Judge
Edmundson reviewed improve
ments completed at Camp Tusca
rora during the past year and
termed it a camp to which we
can point pride u it is keDt
up as we have it now, we snail
never be concerned with the danger
of epidemic outbreaks as we weve
in the past." Included in the im
provements are a new galley and
mess hall, addition of health lodge
up to date showers and latrines,
erection of a caretaker s bouje, In

Street Kornegay Is
Street Kornegay, popular retired
mail carrier in Warsaw, has been
dreaming too much recently.
Street said that a few nights ago,
while sitting in his living room, he
saw a number of flying saucers
scooting through the sky, several
hundred feet above the ground. He
ran into the front yard but they
were out of sight when he got out
of the house.
Upon being questioned, he said,
he was positive they were not shoot
ing stars. Said he, "they were ex
actly the shape of a saucer.
except for the absence of St Nick
and the Christmas trees. The long
awaited White Christmas arrived
last week end and all schools in
the county were closed and will not
reopen until next Monday. .
Sunt Johnson said it is too early
to preddict whether roads will per
mit bus transportation then, but
they are going to give it a try.
As I sit here writing on Wednes
day afternoon the skies are over
cast again. We are just thawing
out of the worst sleet and snow
storm in Duplin in over 25 years.
The thermometer is up and maybe
it will rain tonight instead of snow
Over the week end it was all
a beautiful sight, a "winter wonder
land." The ground was white and
the trees hanging with icicles, el-
ectric and telephone wires were -
glittering with ice. By Monday, as
one could travel, snow men were
seen in many yards. Children en
joyed themselves playing in the
snow, and elders recalled the fam-
ous poem, "The Snow Storm .
Roads coated with ice and not
a single wreck of any significance
reported in Duplin. Highway pa
trolmen said everything was quiet
But, let's not forget those fellows
who patrol our highways through
this weather; our road force who :
had to clear off our roads at the
earliest possible time.
Our telephone and electric ser
vice was not up to par. We- were
without electric power, for some
Lme Well, suppose we had to
climb the icy poles to restore ser
vice? My hat is off to our Public
Servants for the splendid job they
have done and most of them
know that Bob Grady is quite a
fuser when things don't go just
According to old-tuners, weather
like this makes for better crops. It
destroys many insects. Let's hope
we are in for a bumper crop this .
I have just been reading an ar-
Lticle in Life Magazine, issue of Feb.
2nd. It is interesting reading and .
I recommend it to all. The article
is on the Devil and after all, maybe
there is one.
Was listening to Sheriff Jones
yesterday. Said he had checked his
records and that over 95 of in
dictments that have passed through
his office since taking over could
be traced to drinking. The Sheriff
said that before he went into office
he knew liquor played a big hand
in crime but didn't eralize how big
the hand was.
This morning, while coming out -of
a house in Warsaw, a Patrolman
driving by saw me and stopped im
mediately. My first thought wvs, .. .
"What in the world have I done."
Before I could get to the sidewalk -another
Patrolman pulled up from
the other direction. There I was,
my car parked between two patrol -cars,
and both officers coming to
wards me. ,'s;
They wanted a story on having
your car checked as soon as poss-.. :
ible. A checking station will be "
open to the public in Kenansville
about the middle of the week. Tlwy ;
advised be particularly careful
about your lights. More cars are be
ing turned down for improper, .
lights than any other one thing. u,
