OUR JUDGE HUNT PARKER
(In Boanoko Rapids Sunday Herald)
It is gratifying to us to hear of the wide popular
, support from all walks of life that Hunt Parker has
for a seat on our Supreme Court. J -
: For 104 years, the counties of Northeastern;
. North Carolina from Henderson through Roanoke
Rapids and Elizabeth City to the ocean have not
had a member of our highest tribunal as a resident
of this section.
. Hunt Parker and that is what he is called
by his home people in Halifax County where he and
his ancestors have lived for generations has a
long and varied career that fits him to render dis-
languished service in the post he seeks.
- A field artilery man in France in the First
. World War, a. state legislator, a state solicitor, a
judge of the superior court for 19 years . . . he
knows the people of North Carolina . . . their hopes
... their dreams and ambitions . . . their problems
; and living conditions.
He is a Christian gertleman, a man of the
highest integrity, a scholar with an accurate and
profound knowledge of law and government. , He
- is fair and courteous to all persons regardless of
their position in life. He always seeks to admin
ister justice fairly, impartially and equitably, never
recognizing in court inena or ioe.
Through the years he has shown that he pos
sesses the patience, the understanding and the tem
peramental qualities that are requisite for a judge.
Recognizing his legal knowledge and fitness, Gov.
Cherry and Chief Justice Stacey appointed him to
commissions to study improvements in the admin
istration of justice.
' ' In these days of trial the state needs the
. services of Hunt Parker on its highest court. He
believes in the principles upon which our gov
ernment was founded, and 'that those principles
should be preserved and maintained
, A grave responsibility restsrupon the citizens
of North Carolina in selecting a member of the
Supreme Court, for written opinions control for
generations the lower courts in passing upon their
reputations, their property, their liberty, their
lives, their aU. .
, We hear from many sources over the state that
he is the man best qualified for the position.
- The esteem and respect in which Hunt Parker
is nem py nis own nome people wno Know nun
' best is shown by the solid backing they are giving
- him in this election. "-'i.' r
. The County Boards of Commissioners in every
single county in Hunt Parker's judicial district have
, endorsed his candidacy unanimously. These boards
represent Halifax, Warren, Vance. Northampton,
Bertie and Hertford Counties. 3; S v,; r y
. The sheriffs and clerks of court of these same
counties have also given their unanimous backing
" to Hunt Parker. The bar associations of the six
counties have given their endorsement to his can
We believe the people of North Carolina will
make no mistake if they nominate and elect Hunt
; Parker as an Associate Justice of their Supreme
Court. , ' s

o ONE hat ever claimed that
H profane language la good lan
guage, not even the people who use
it. But there la something worse
than profane language: a profane
life. .; ' , . - t
We are told in the New Testa
ment that Esau was ' - '-
a profane - man,
but in all that the
Bible tells of him
we never hear him
uttering a single
bad word. ' The
Third ' - Command
ment Is: Then shall
not take the name
of the Lord thy God
In vain. (In some
numberings it . is
the second commandment, but iff
not the number that is most Impor
tant, it is what is in it that counts.
Most people think that an that
means is that we should not take
lightly the name of God. Indeed we
should not; it is surely a sin to
treat the Almighty God with less
respect than you would treat your
own parents. But Irreverent langu
age la only a symptom: the disease
Is the Irreverent life.
God's Name Should
Mean Something ; ; ,
LOOK at that Commandment a
little more closely. ' What does
In vain" mean? v i ". '
In the Old Testament the same
word is often used to mean useless,
uselessly, or to no -purpose. (See,
for example, Psalm 90:11; 89:47;
108:12; Jeremiah 4:30; 46:11.)
What the Third ' Command
ment meant, then, moat of all.
it this: Do not take the name
of God and make a He out-of It.
Do not take the name of God
to no purpose.
If This It Tour Father's World
LETS ASSUME you are a Chris
tian. If so, you have already
taken God's name, when you were
being baptized Into "the Name of
the Father and the Son and the Holy
Ghost" You have taken upon your
self the great Triune. Name of the
living God, you are one of hit name
bearers, you nave acknowledged
your place in hit family. :, . .

that? You ought to mean it If you
do, you will always treat that
world with respect; you win not, for
instance, watte its resources. If
you own land you will treat that

which it is. If you own animals you

ther and not God, this Is the
profane man. ','$. ;''",::.-',.!:.
. If such a man uses profanity of
speech, and he probably will, his
language it only the bubblet on the

Christian have a birthright at a

TF you are a name-bearer of God,
then If you live up to that name

When a feller makes up his mind
to do tomethin, I be daggum if I
dont believe he oughts go on an do

a little more about two years ago,
I could of made me a little money
this year that I won't make. Now,
the only thing I can do is get a
littp peace of mind in tellin Fan
nie that the wat the cause of it
all. , , .
I tried every way I could year
before last to talk that woman
into helpin me put in a acre of
strawberries, but the nggerea we
was too old to start messin with
a crop that had to be worked as
much as they did. Another thing
she fumed over was1 the fact that
it was Jest too hard to work for
two old folks to do when it came
time to gather 'em Well, she had
a good point there, but dang if we ,
couldn't or anoraea to nave 'em
picked and still made a little money
this year, I believe. .. Course it's
a little early in the season, they
say, to know Jest what they're gon
na bring on the market. I know
one thing though, they're startin
off all right , -
George Masters, my neighbor
who's always a pickln up a little
extra money on his farm, has been
a growln v strawberries , now for
about five years. He come by the
house last Friday on his way back
from the market where he sold
seven crates, and was tellin me
what he got for 'em. . Well, when
he said he got high as $13 apiece
for three of his crates, my blood
Jest boiled, and the more I thought
about it the madder I got with
Fannie. George ain't picked his
but one time' to far and he talks
like he's got the best crop he's ever
He was tellin me about bumpin
Into one of the market fellers he
was oh. the auction block sellin
his berries. Seems like his name
was Gilbert ; Clark anyhow.
George said he was with the De
partment of Agriculture in - Ra
leigh and knowed more about the
strawberry crop than anybody he'd
ever met up witn. 1
George commenced t tellin me
some of the things he heard this
feller Clark say and if I'd a had
me a kickin machine I sure would
of backed up to it 'fdre Qeorge
finished talkin. The way he said
this Mr. Clark give it in, the straw
berry growers should git a bettei
price this season than they did
last year. The total acreage to be
picked runs somewhere around 2,
200 George said be said, and they
probably won't be any more ber
ries to be sold than they was last
vear. Seems like too that t? rowers
here will be in a little better shape
cause from the way George said
this Mr. Clarke talked I reckon the
Folrlda folks are sorts goln out of
the strawberry business. ' The
crop's about over in Louisiana and
the floods have damaged the Ten-
nee ' and : Arkansas . crops 'til
they're gonna be cut short up there.
So. it looks like there s gonna be
plenty of people, a wantin these
North Carolina, strawberries this
time. t-. t A j '
I asked George if there was a
lot of farmers sellin strawberries
the day he sold his, and he said
there won't I believe he said this

George talked like he might put

there's been a lot of our folks
gone out of the strawberry busi

able to git enough of the right kind
of labor at the right time. And
I think some of 'em has got a lit
tle increase in their tobacco allot
ments which has also caused em
to- git way from growln strawber

increase my tobacco, allotment and
I don't care if the labor situation
don't git any better, I'm gonna put

A RISEN LORD
"He is not here: for he is risen,
as he said. Come, see the place
where the Lord lay." Matt. 28:6.
Christ gave up for a time the
glory and power of the heavenly
worlds and came on a mission to
a lost world. He sacrificed all that
his followers might gain alL His
teachings were such as man had
never heard before. But his teach
ings were backed up by his right-'
eous living, ,
' Christ was betrayed by one of
his followers. He was tried and
condemned without being given
a proper hearing. He bore his
cross until lie , was physically ex
hausted. His sufferings were un
told. He gave his life for the sal-
vauvu u outers.
The new tomb in which he was
buried was made as secure as pos
sible. Roman guards were placed
there to guard it The Roman seal
was placed upon it To break that
seal was punishable by death. , A
great earthquake shook the earth
and Christ came back from the
portals of the dead. Angels were
seen at the tomb. Women came
to embalm a dead Christ and found
an empty tomb but a live Christ.
Jesus declared that all power was
given mm in heaven and earth.
The proof of his resurrection and
power may be found in the live! of
his humble followers, .
