word "Reciprocity". The professor
answered: "You scratch my back

MOVIE ACTRESS Anne Jeffreys j
of Goldsboro says her marriage in 1
1945 to Air Force Caot. Joseph R.
Serena, 34, of Washington, D. C,
was never consumated, and she
wants an annulment. In a suit filed
in superior court Tuesday, the 25-year-old
actress charged Serena

said they were separated May 10,
1945, two months after the mar

What Others Say-
Making A Martyr
Of Henry Wallace
We are ashamed at the rowdy
ism that has marked the appearance
of Henry Wallace in North Caro
lina. There were fist fights and other
disturbances at Durham. Wallace
was showered with rotten eggs and
overripe tomatoes at Burlington. It
happened again at Greensboro,
Hickory, High Point and Charlotte.
Under the democratic way of
America Wallace has a perfect
right to campaign in North Caro
lina. Any person who believes in
him has a right to vote for him.
Folks who do not agree (and we
do not) were under no compulsion
to attend his rallies. They are un
der compulsion, however, to give
hime decent treatment.
The 'regrettable incidents that
occurred have a tendency to make
a martvr of him and to gain for
him a sympathy in the minds of the
fair minded. The egg throwing ana
the tomato throwing got him mucn
more attention in the press and on
the radio than he could have re
ceived on his campaigning alone.
People who took part in the In
cidents hurt themselves. They help
ed Wallace. We are ashamed that
it could happen in North Carolina.
The above was written by Henry
Belk in the Goldsboro News-Argus.
We like it. J.R.G.
Shall live while the ages roll
For the beautiful unseen temple
Was a child's immortal soul.
Gossiners keep your minds up.
Look for the good things in life
and you'll see the good things ana
Let the bad' take caro of itself.
Life is not worth'thinking on the
wrong side. History is history and
we can't change it.
