Two little German girls will visit North Carolina this fall.
:rFrora the mountains to the coast they will tell us what American
boots and magazines sent to Germany have meant to them.
This international friendship program, initiated in North
Carolina last fall by John A. Park, editor of The Raleigh Times,
will continue this fall, joined by people ot other states along the
Mr. Park started the flow of American books and magazines
to Germany after his return from a visit there in the summer of
'47. In a youth center operated in Berlin by an American Army
battalion, he met Doris Hillenbran, one of the two little 12-year-old
girls who will be the guests of our state this fall. Doris, who
was 9tudymg English, told Mr. Park how anxious German people
were to learn more about American people and customs. This
impressed Mr. Park with the vast possibility of inculcating demo
cratic principles in the youth of Germany by making American
' books available to them. Back here he told us of his plan and
. civic organizations throughout the state responded, pitching in
with all the spare good books and magazines, they could find.
Here in Carteret county, the books-for-Europe program was
ably carried out by H. L. Joslyn, superintendent of schools, with
the assistance of Jaycees, Rotarians, private businessmen, and of
course, all of the residents of the county who contributed to the
North Carolinians have thus far sent more than a million
books to the American zone of Germany and during the coming
year the plans call for five million.
There is a particularly strong need for books in German
schools, , military government officials point out. They estimate
that 3,000,000 boys and girls are studying English in the United
States zone of Germany, but instruction it seriously handicapped
because of the lack of books in English.
Modern textbooks are also needed by German teachers and
scholars who have been shut off for at least a decade from new
developments in many fields of knowledge. General Lucius D.
Clay, United States Military Governor of Germany, recently
pointed out. General Clay hailed the first year's work of the
North Carolina plan as "excellent work that contributed material
ly to our program for the re-education of Germany."
Books desired for shipment to Germany are picture books,
. readers and stories for young ages; histories, social and general
science books for all ages; art and music books, good works of
American literature, Bibles, dictionaries, reference books, high-
standard periodicals since May, 1945, and college textbooks since
Five million books for Germany is a mountain of printed
matter. We're sure Carteret county will want to contribute a
chunk of that mountain!

There are two kinds of discontent in the world: the discontent
that works, and the discontent that wrings it's hands. The
first gets what it wants, and the second loses what it has.
There's no cure for the first but success: there is no cure at
all for the second.
Energy will do anything in this world, and no circumstances, no
jpportunitics, win make a man without it.
A man should never be ashamed to own that he has been in the
I - wrong: it is but saying in other words that he is wiser to
day than he was yesterday.
Every man must educate himself,
but helps, the work is his.

TRUMAN SPEECH Although
President Harry Truman's visit to
Ralcigli is still several days off,
his speech (around 10 pages in
length) is already here waiting for
him and by this time is probably
in the hands of news services, key
press correspondents, and some of
the larger newspapers.
J. M. Broughton, Kerr Scott, and
Gov. Cherry can usually . wade
through a typewritten pagfi, ave
rage sized and doubled-spaeed, in
about two minutes. However,
President Truman seems to read a
little faster than these gentlemen,
and will likely complete the writ
ten portion of his talk in 15 min
utes. Since his address will be
concerned mainly with the farm
er's prosperity, President Truman
will have a wonderful opportunity
to talk at random about his old
days on the farm. He will go out
of his way to be "folksy." You
may expect him to throw a tew
bouquets in the direction of Farm
er Kerr Seott, too, with particular
attention given to Scott's plan for
a rural road improvement pro
gram. THE LAST TIME Raleigh is
seldom blessed with Presidential
visits. In fact, North Carolina has
not become known as an important
place for Presidents or aspirants
to the Presidency to do any cam
paigning. The reason is simple.
The Democrats have taken this
position: "We have North Carolina,
so let's spread our thunder else
where." The Republicans have
said: "Oh, what's the use!" The
big share of the credit for getting
Truman here this time must go
to News and Observer Editor Jo
nath'an Daniels, who has accompa
nied the President on many of his
recent campaign trips and helped
him with his speeches. State's
Rights . Presidential Candidate
Strom Thurmond must also be
given some of the credit.
So, the President will be here
on October 19. The last time a
President spoke in Raleigh was
when Theodore Roosevelt appear
ed Jiere on October 19, 1905.
Speaking on behalf of the N. C.
Literary and Historial Association,'
he presented to 81 year-old John
Charles McNeill the Patterson Me
mrrial Cup in the chamber of the
State Senate. Two years later this
young . Scotland County genius
died. He left some beautiful lines
dedicated , to "October:" "The
thought of old, dear things is in
thine eyes, O, month of memories!"
