Sparger Says Highway Fund Adequate To
Finance Ambitious Road Program
Warsaw, N. C. June 17 S. Gil
mer Sparger, Executive Secretary
of the North Carolina Petroleum
Industries Committee, said today
before a dinner meeting oi oil men
from Duplin and 'Onslow counties
that available highway revenues
are adequate to finance an ambiti
ous road building program over
the next three years, if used exclu
sively for load purposes.
fifr. E. F. Strickland, Chairman
of the Duplin County Petroleum
Industries Committee, presided and
introduced the speaker.
Speaking before this group, an
affiliate of the State organization,
Mr. Sparger declared, "There will
. be available during the next three
year period for highway construc
tion, maintenance, debt service and
administration, more than $200,
000,000.00. This figure is based on
annual receipts from the State
, gasoline tax of $41,000,000.00, mo
tor vehicle registration fees of $16,
000,000.00 ajiii edaifd Aid of $11,-,
000,600.0 The enty tiling necess
ary is to make sure by appropriate
legislation that these revenues are
spent exclusively for road purposes.
To do otherwise Would not only
be a travesty on good judgment
and sound fiscal policy but a breach
of trust with highway users who
pay out annually millions Of dol
lars in gasoline taxes and rHotor
vehicle registration lees lor ljcllor,
roads ;md highways."
"The average automotive tax
bill," ho continued, "amounting to
more than $100.00 per vehicle in
North Carolina, is among the high
est in the country. In fact, the mo
tor vehicle owners in this State
paid more on the average in stale
gasoline taxes, state motor vehicle
fees, federal gasoline taxes and
other federal excises during 194(i
than in all except three other states
throughout the nation. As compar
ed with the average for the United
States, the North Carolina average
is about $25.00 per vehicle per
"At the same time," he conclu
ded, North Carolina citizens are
lesa able to baur a hea(y Joatl of
taxation than udzent of mffift ofir
states. This is shown by recently
compiled Bureau of Census figures
which show that North. Carolina
Banked 4 1st among the Ma4e in
per capita income."
riles this quarter a series
of lessons based on less known
Bible characters that have much to
offer us Sfich a
character is found
in Micaiah, about
whom we learn in I
Ahab, king of Is
rael, planned an ex
pedition to recover
the city of Ramoth
in Gilead, which the
Syrians had taken.
He Invited Jehosha
phat, king Of Judah,
to join him. Ahab
relied upon hit court
prophets, to predict victory; but
Micaiah, the prophet of God, whom
Ahab had shut up in prison, when
he was summoned, at the insistence
of Jehoshaphat, told Ahab the truth
the unpleasant truth which sub
sequent events verified.
BRAVE ENOUGH TO. TELL
THE "first blessing in the study ot
this obscure Bible character,
Micaiah, is to discover a man who
was brave enough to tell the truth
when he knew it was unpopular.
It is alwpys the best policy to
tell the truth, though there be many
in today's World who deny this prhv
ciple. It is hot enough to say that
we will tell the truth because it
pays. That is true, but it as a by
product of doing what is right. Ona
must tell the truth because it Is
right to tell the truth. Men swear
with their hand upon the Holy Bible
tl at what they testify is the truth
and nothing but the truth. But,
alas, such men often tell anything
but the truth. They have been care
fully coached to evade the truth.
Micaiah told the fruth, because he
was speaking for God. It hurt him,
but it must needs be the truth he
spoke to Ahab.
Ahab scorned the words of Mi-

into prison. But scarcely had the
prophet of God been thrust again
into prison, until Ahab was bleed
ing tn death in his chariot.
Men not only take their own lives
in their hands wher. they disregard
the truth, fcit, like stubborn Ahab,
they bring grief to countless others.
Had Ahab heeded the words of
truth which Micaiah proclaimed,
Ahab might have lived. Indeed, had
Ahab heeded the words of truth, he
might have recovered Ramoth, and
Truth may appear forever on the
scaffold, wrong forever on the
throne, but time always proves a
hard taskmaster to the' man who
regards wrong instead of truth.
THE SOURCE OF TRUTH
GOD is the source of truth all
truth. If we miss this, we miss
the lesson of the lesson. Note the
words of the golden text, "As the
Lord liveth, what the Lord saith
unto me, that will I speak," said
Let us remember that it was God
speaking through his prophet. Ahab
could not have doubted that Micaiah
was speaking what God had told
him to speak. But Ahab did not
want to hear the truth. He wanted
to hear pleasing words that would
encourage him in his evil plan.
God speaks the first and the last
word on every subject, because God
la truth. "X am the truth." said
Jet us. And he went on to say, "Ye
shall know the truth, and the truth
shall make you free."
THE PENALTY OF
DISOBEYING THE TRUTH
HORRIBLE, indeed, was the pen
alftr which Ahab suffered for
disregarding the truth. The way of
the transgressor is hard always
hard. The wages of sin is death,
Be sure your sins will find you out
Take down your cherished books
of history. What do they say to
you? That the straight line of truth
is the only safe way in which to
walk. It is applicable for the in
dividual, for the family, for the
community, for the nation, for civili
Thus every great psayer must be,
"Thy will be done.". God's will Is
the way of truth. Micaiah declared
it. Every true prophet must declare
It It la the only way to peace and
Joy to this world.
