It’s Four More Years ot
The Baptist Movement in
North Carolina.
Many of the intelHsent citizens
of ouf State do not know the size
or the spirit of this movement. ,
It is immense and si-rnificant- It :
started in the early days of our
history as a State. It was born
out of the sincere relijrious aspi
rations of a plain pioneer people.
But it has outrun the pace of the
state in its j»'rowth and popula
tion. wealth, and culture. It now
muiibers at least 275,000 white
people. This savs nothinsr of
over 200,000 neerro Baptists,
nothing of tens of thousands of ,
sympathizers with the Baptist 1
view of Christanity. There arc
almost as many Baptists

nd at which time the various
candidate.s will doubtless express
publicly their thanks for the sup
port given them by the voters of
our county, I take this rnethod of
expressing my graditudo to each
and every one who gave me their
loyal snpptrt and I wish to. assure
them that they shall nevgr have
reasons for regret for having
supported me. The fight I have
been making has been made in
behalf of the tax payers of our
county and while some have re
fused to believe that my highest
ambition was to serve the people
as a whole and therefore refused
to support me. To these I wish
to say that time- will show, niy
real object in making this fight
to be for the purposes tjiat I have
so often expressd both in public
j and private and I desire to assure
j both those who supported me and
! those who opposed me that every .
pre-election promise as to legis
lation for Yancey county shall be
kept to the letter and are hereby
reiterated as an after-election
And further, I wifh to say that
every energy within me shall and
will be exerted to carry oijt every
pledge that I have made to the
people since I decided to become
a candidate for the Legislature
and I am determined to show the
people of this county that I am
not the tool of any man or set of
men, but to the contrar}-1 am and
will be the servant of all the peo
ple, and will be pleased at any
time-to have a suggestion from
any man, let him be rich or poor,
regarding any legislation espec-
afferting our county, and es
pecially will I be pleased to have
suggestions in regard to a road
law in our cputity and I desire
that the suggestions be made
writing so that I may have them
before me for consideration when
preparing a road law, for out of
a multitude of counsel aye
suggestions we ought to be abl
to get a fair, just and equitable
road law that would do equal
justice to each and every part of

Religion Ain’t Free.
A colored preacher once preach
ed on the theme "Salvation am
free.’’ And,'after deliv.ering a
powerful sermon, he began to
take up a collection for his own
salary. One of tfie deacons got
up ami protested and reminded
tjie preacher that h,e hgd just
said that religion was free and
now that be was trying to make
tl.iem pay for it. The old preach
er replied; "I’m sorry you makes
it incumbent on me tp ’spose your
ignorance before thisLr congre

free just like water in the river
am free. You can go down and

There are in this state sixty-four
Baptist district associations, over
two thousand and and one hun
dred Baptist churches- Still the
movement grows by leaps and
bounds. At the presnt rate of
increase by 1950 there will be in
our state at leost 600,OOO white
Three fourths of the North
Carolina Baptist strength is in
the country. That puts on Bap
tist shoulders the bulk of the ob
ligation for religious leadership
in the present rejuvenation of our
country. It is a serious question
whether they will measure
up to the obligation. The
commonwealth has them under
test at this point.
Some think that the only pe
culiarity of Baptists is their mode
of baptism. But their distinct
iveness runs far deeper than that;
baptism is only symbolic. Right
of access of each soul to God, the
absolute equality of all believers
in Christ, the integrity and sov
ereignty of eacJi local church,
these are some of their _ funda
mental distinctions. Their faith
is the religious underpinning _ for
democracy; the moral foundations
of the modern republic.
The Baptist people of North
Carolina have already grown
many great institututioiis: The
Biblical Recorder, their weekly
organ, is read by nearly fifty
thousand people during the year.
Their State I'-oard of Missions
handles annually about $150,000.-
00. Besides several private
schools controlled by Baptists,
they have three great colleges
'•Yake Forest, Meredith, Chowan,
and fourteen Secondary Schools.
The Thomasville Orphanage, the
pet . among their • enterprises, is
the largest institution of its class
in North Carolina and easily one
of the largest in all the South.
There are thousands of Bap
tists in Yancey county; and Bap
tist churches dot every township
in the county. The Baptists of
Yancey and adjoining counties
will rejoice, to see these facts
published in their county paper.
The Baptsts of North Carolina
count as one of their most valua
ble assets the faiendship of the
Eagle which is read by hundreds
of Baptist people who do not see
Biblical Recorder.
The next session of the Baptist
State Convention meets in Eliza
beth City on December 5th. Be
fore that time there is be a strug

North Carolina. This year_ thei'

Education, 850,000 for the_ Or

important to the moral, educa

commonwealth. Here religion
and patriotism meet in the Baptist
■ soul. What each Baptist does
for this cause shows him both as
a Christian and as a citizen, This
$55,000 is all to be raised by No
