DIVORCE, childlessness and near
childlessness are major men-'
'aces to the modern home. But per4
haps equally harmful are parents
who profane the sacred character ofj
the child. The are not merely the,
drunkards, the . child-beaters, ' the
Ignorant or the vjce-ridden. They!
are the parents ! who fail to make!

Even In less well-to-do. homes we
find parents, who, though they may

Historians assure us that tha de

preceded by the breakdown of the'

everywhere are now pointing to an
- alarming crisis In the American

Religious ideals which gave so .
much vigor and strength tcv.the'
American pioneer home are def aed J
as "old-fashioned. 'Godless eduesx

: Many parents deliberately sur-j
round their children with Influences:
that encourage worldllness end

souls are dwarfed and who sever

America's wayward parents need
education in the ABCs of sarantal'
responsibility. They must respeitl

You can expect the -conservatives
to use every trick in the book to
try to discredit the Scott admini
stration. And you can expect the
liberal forces to try to consolidate
their position and push through
what they consider necessary leg
islation to provide adequate serv
ices for Tar Heels. x:'-"--
Conservatives alreday have soun
ded their battle cry - - "no new tax
es and no expanded appropria
tions",, They point to the certainty
of increased federal taxes, and sol
emnly vow that now is the time to
stand pat and attempt nothing new.
' The simple fact remains,' how
ever, that even to "stand pat" on
services and not extend them will
cost the state several millions of
dollars more .during the coming
biennial than it has during this one.
Personnel will be needed to, man
all those new buildings that were
constructed under the $150,000,000
permanent improvement program.
More money will be asked to complete-some
of the buildings that
were not started in time to be built
on the money provided for them
- Swinging around Capitol Hill,
here are just a few expensive items
that will be sought by various de.
School teachers, of course, will
want a pay raise. If kept at the
$2,200 - $3,100 range reached under
the contingency raise provided last
session this will cost seven to eight
million dollars. If it is boosted more
the cost, naturally, would be higher.-.'-
. , State-supported colleges and uni
versities will seek more money,
and it won't be a small sum, to
meet rising costs caused by ab
sence of GI's. They will need money
to staff new departments, too. This
will reach another several million
dollars a year.
- The welfare department will seek
more funds to raise minimum pay
ments to the aged and to depen
dent .children. They, too, have ex
panded their program. aThls likely
will cost another million If granted.
The agriculture department will
ask another $150,000. a finish Its
new wing. The health department
will want a new site bought for its
unbuilt building, because they don't
want to. stay -where they are --too
close to Raleigh's alums. i .-;
, Another effort will toe made to
put through a stream' sanitation
program, and that will cost another
piece of change lf It carries.
An effort likely will be made to
put city streets unde?-thestate's
care and ' that woul run close ' to
$10,000,000 a year. ''- .. ." . ' ;
