With sunny smile Mid cherry word
lie held his place with men,
And never will there ever be
A greater truer friend;
He gave his winning smile to all
To stranger and to friend.
His cheery words and manner
Lasted to the end.
With ringing words of greeting
He met them with his smile,
And gave to them the meaning
Of living well worth while;
To great and small he gave alike
He helped to spread the sunshine
On earth while he was here.
A look of joy filled the eye
Of those that came his way,
They found a place of joy and cheer
And there they wished to stay;
A gleam of light filled the place
When they beheld his smile,
They gained a bit of cheery life
A life that was worth while.
Though Iris smile has passed away
Weil meet him after while,
And there well see and know him
By his true honest smile;
The friends he left are many here
That often think of him.
And of his smiling greeting
That greatest finest gem,

Raleigh - The country road aid

Under ibis t'i’.i, which increases
the gasoline tax from 4 cents to 3
cents a gallon, a fund of $3,000,000
will be set aside each year to be
apportioned to the various coun
ties 'n proportion to their area and
population, for the maintenance of
cc-unto roads in the counties, y,hile
an addil cnal $500,000 will be held
in reserve by the highway commis

Copeland’s Health Talk
Build Up Health
(United States Senator And Former Health Cronmhsioner of Now Fork.)
If you were called upon to define civilization and to give your ideas
ol what constitute civilization, what would you say?
The dictonary says that civiliza tion Is “a state of social culture
characterized by relative progress in the arts, science and statecraft.”
tins ocuniuon wouici surety dc i»ihu uigu-mv/w
by most of us—wouldn't it?
Well, anyhow, we need not worry over what
Webster says about civilization. I'm going to
give you a better definition. That is, I'm going
to recite to you what a writer says about it. Let
me quote:
"Civilization is a rattier difficult term to de
fine. but generally speaking, it represents the con
dition of an orderly society in which the objectives,
ministering to health and happiness, arc within
the reach of practically the entire population."
Then, to make sure he is understood, the writer
continues: "A civilized government is primarily
.. ' concerned with the prosperity oi me people ami
CUt'tJ^AND, iis b?st maintenance tmder given conditions of
health and physical efficiency.’’ '
These are the words of a great man—Dr. Frederick L. Hoffman,
the statistician of one of the largest insurance companies. Everything
Dr. Hoffman says is worthy of study and confidence.
The Doctor has just written a book entitled, "Some Problems oi
Longevity." He points out tne im
portance of developing, early in
life, a sound philosophy of right
living and right thinking. Then,
as a matter of course, the life will
| be governed in such a way that
> long life is the natural result.
But we were talking about civi
lization: I have long preached the
doctrine that the purpose of gov
ernment is to serve humanity. It
is not serving humanity unless it
does everything a government
should do to promote the health
and welfare of all its citizens.
When it does do this, then, as I
view it, it is a civilized govern
ment, and its happy citizens are
living under the high standards
proclaimed by Dr. Hoffman.
But, until health and happiness
are, as he says, within the reach
of practically the entire popula
tion, we are not fully civilized. It
is our duty as citizens to do all
we can to arrive at this ideal con
After all, however, to have na
tional health is not entirely a gov
ernmental function. We must do
our part as units of a society that
cannot be perfect physically until
all its units possess health.
Health is not a personal matter
alone. Disease of the individual
brings hardships and sacrifices,
unhappiness and misery, to fam
ily and friends and harm to the
economic world.
We cannot have universal health
until every member of society has
developed a sound philosophy of
right living and right thinking. It
cannot be considered a sound phil
osophy until every citizen in his
personal life lives up to his ideals.
