Why is it bad for your health to fly into a violent lit of anger
unci particularly lo indulge In frequent spells of anger?
If anger were merely a state of mind it wouldn't be so bad. If It
were purely ah emotion, moving or stirring up the mind alone, it might
be stimulating and even healthful because it is stimulating.
Dui anger does a lot more to you ui.ui merely

You see of once that anger is a lot tnore than

It is important a.s you yo through Hie. to have habits and to follow
practices that will make for your own welfare as well as the happiness
of those about ypu. Happiness and contentment, founded on right
conduct, mean much more than their effect upon your mind
As a matter erf fact, conduct of
this sort will contribute material

settee of well-being. The sacred
writer puts it another way. Speak

As I have said, this manner of
living contributes materially to the
smooth operation ol all the organs.
The functions are normal. With
the lack of friction the machinery
of the hooy does not wear out.
Take heed that I am not advocat

Just as the frost of a September
morning or the balmy breezes of
a May day stimulate the body to

I know how hard It Is to control
anger and to prevent giving in to
it. It is always easier to follow the
line of least resistance. It is easier
by far to give way to the angry
impulses than to attempt to control
them. Bitt you should make thi:

Gardner And Gilkey
The Country Gentleman is a pub
lication of high standard and of
broad circulation and through the
February number it gives North
Carolina a bit of publicity that
migh be classed as charming. It had
sent a staff reporter to the state for
the purpose of securing an inter
view with Gov. Gardner, and of
course the reporter was equipped
with errnera, as well as typewriter
—and both were brought into play.
The writer caught Gardner amidst
picturesque surroundings, and he
likewise caught him in company
with one of his ablest lieutenants,
the same being J. O. Gilkey. whose
home, as everybody in the state has
reason to know, is the beautiful
mountain of Marion. Gardner and
Gilkey were "snapped” on a rustic
bridge with the outlines of the base
of Mount Mitchell reflected in the
clear waters of Lake Talioma, one
of the new tilings in tne "new
North Carolina. The picture, as a
matter of course, whets the appe
tite* of the reader for the story that
goes with it, the development being
rtetr 11s by Gov. Gardner of his plans
for "a new agriculture. ine pre
liminary statement is to the effect
(hat in North Carolina there has
prevailed for a number of years the
Inspiring precedent of each incom
ing governor emphasizing during
his administration the fulfillment of
some one great, urgent need of the
commonwealth. "The immortal Av
cock.” Gardner - instances, "ham
mered at education. Under the In
spiration of his leadership tire state
began the task of providing an ado
riuate system of modern schools.
Bickctt began read construction.
The job was such u tremendous one
that his successor, Morrison, put the
full force of his personality and of
ficial position behind our great ad
; venture in road building. My pre
| decessor. McLean, chose to make j
j business administration of the
I state's tiffairs and the executive
! budget the keynote of his concern."
Gov. Gardner reminds that "no
j uie of these great movements for
the upbuilding of the state has been,
; pursued at the expense of any oth
' *>r part of our governmental activi
1 ties; each has constituted a distinct
I '-Bin in a certain direction without
! corresponding loss in other import
! ant activities. The amazing cultural
I and material advancement achiev
I cd under this system of specialized
I leadership speaks for the wisdom of
j our now established policy."
Gardner then tells of his para
; mount idea ior tne upouuamg oi
the agriculture of the state, and The
Country Gentleman permits him a
page and a quarter to tell about It.
With these details the North Caro
lina public is already familiar. Gov.
Gardner tells of how he expects to
"Sell" his proposition to the legisla
ture for "an adequately supported
and brilliantly manned experiment
station," and of his anticipation in
encountering small opposition, if
an at all. for North Carolina citl
a -nry, he reminds, is already edu
cated to high adventure in str.*e af
fairs. Our rqad building, back of
which stands a bond issue of $115.
000,000. is not only accomplishing
much in enriching life through add
ing to cultural and spiritual values
while at the same time fostering
prosperity but, looked upon as a
plrin business venture, -yields a fi
nanial profit to the state. The tax
on gas sales and automobile tags
brings in a sum which pays inter
est on bonds, provides a sinking
fund for their retirement, provides
for the upkeep of highways and, in
addition, yields a profit of approxi
mately $10,000,000 for the construc
tion of new roads.
When it is borne in mind that a
real program based on intensive
study of our regional problems will
call for an initial Increased expen
diture of only few hundred thous
and dollars a year while offering a
profit running perhaps Into hun
dreds of millions of dollrrs, it is
not to be presumed that any diffi
culty will be encountered in secur
ing adequate financial support.
"In building the enlarged organi
sation to imdertake this bre ad com
prehensive research program in ag
riculture." says the Governor, "it
shall be the task of my r.dministra
tlon to sec that the present staff of
able members of our experiment
station is augmented \by the best
talent the nation has to offer To
this end the advice and counsel cf
outstanding national investigators
will be sought.”
The Country Gentleman is mani
festly deeply Impressed with the pos
sibilities of the new agriculture
Gov. Gardner has set about to pro
mote. It finds the Gardner plan
"significant of two important
things: It denotes the growing
recognition of research as a con
tributor to human betterment, and
it reflects the manner of progress
now going on in the south”—in
"the pulsating south land,” is is
pleased to call it. over which terri
tory it sees progress “along broad
lines.” The Country Gentleman
makes review of thq. industrial de
velopment going on in the south,
and remarks -that, when viewed
against this background "that has
largely come out of the test tube
and off the. blue print” the pro
gram of Gov. Gardner assumes a
fuller significance. It proposes to
use the same kind of tools for the
upbuilding of agriculture. And the i
south has no more plumbed Its agri- ,
| cultural possibilities than it had
those of industry a generation ago.
In conclusion, The Country Gent
leman observes: "Some, looking up
on what is going on in that section,
proclaim a new south has 'come in
to being. But others, prliaps better
versed in history, feel that it is but
a reflorescence of the spirit that
gave the old- south leadership in an
earlier period of our national life.
Whichever it may be, it calls for a
revision cf popular impression. For,
to many Americans outside of it,
the south has represented only a
memory, an order of life gallant and
charming and splendid that had
vanished. But the south of today is
a vital reality, quickening to the op
portunities and responsibilities of a
Which is a truth all the folks
down here, except the vanishing
tribe of peanut politicians, are proud
to accept, and in which acceptance
they are inclined to- glory.

only twenty Pilot agents who quali
fied for the highest honor in the
gift of t he r company to bestbw at tjie recent agency conyention in
* ift recognition of this achievement, he has Deen elected to
membership in the McALLISTER CLAN.
With over 600 agents in
twelve states and the District
of Columbia, this signal honor
has come to but twenty mem
bers of the Agency Force.
For membership in the Me- '
Alister Clan requires not only
the continuous production of
a large volume of life insur
ance sales, but also the main
taining of a renewal ratio that
is considerably above that of
the average life underwriter.
Clan membership require;
that the agent must have
shown unusual ability in all
lines of his work, including the
financing, production, and con
servation of business. No
man can win membership in
the McAlister Clan—the high
est honor organization in the
Pilot field—without being
worthy of the public’s utmost
confidence in his ability to give
superior life insurance service.
By qualifying for the McAllister Club, Mr. Webb has dem
onstrated that he is worthy of your support and that he is
truly a "Pilot to Better Protection.”
