THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT
ETERNAL LIFE: Thou shalt
love the Lord thy God with all thy
heart, and with all thy soul, and with
all thy strength, and with all thy
mind; and thy neighbor as thyself.
This do, and thou shalt live. Luke
HEALTH OFFICER RISES TO
Dr. G. E. Newby, Perquimans
County's health officer, is to be com
mended on his prompt and decisive
action in handling the situation at
Winfall with reference to the possible
spread of spinal meningitis.
When it became known -on Sunday
that a case of spinal meningitis had
developed at Winfall there was a near
panic among certain residents, par
ticularly among parents of young
However, when it was learned that;
the health officer, realizing the ne
cessity for prompt precautionary
measures, had ordered that all those
who had been in contact with the pa
tient during his illness be quarantined
and the statement was made by Dr.
Newby that with proper precaution
he believed the situation could be
controlled, the fear subsided.
While there is no treatment known
which will prevent an attack of
spinal meningitis, there are certain
precautionary measures, the safest
being the segregation of those who
have been in contact with the uis
ease until the period of incubation
It is possible that the case of spinal
meningitis in Winfall may prove to
be a sporadic ease, and that there
will be i no further outbreak. It fre
quently happens that only one case
of many and various contagious dis
eases occur in a community. On the
other hand it is possible that one or
more cases might occur in widely
That there is danger of contagion
and spread of the disease is not to
be denied. Certainly a serious situa
tion might develop. At present, how
ever, there is no cause for grave
alarm. The fact that the health of
ficer was on the job in time an that
he has done everything possible to
prevent a possible spread of the dis
ease is reassuring.
YOUTH OF TODAY NEED WISE
Fundamentally, the youth of today
are just as idealistic, just as courage
ous, just as loyal as they ever were.
What they need, thouglTthey are not
always aware of that fact, is wise
leadership, and one of the main
causes of their unrest is that upon
looking around the world they do not
find enough of that type of leader
ship. If we of the older generation
are wise, we will not waste, time in
deploring youth's spirit, of adventure
and change; we will sympathize with
it, cooperate with it, and seek to
guide it. Walter D. Head, in the

A new link in the chain of events
which is making the South the
center of the great chemical in
dustry was forged this week when
the S. S. Malchace arrived in Hope

can nitrate of soda industry. The
steamer carried the first of the
many cargoes of soda ash from the
new plant in Baton Rouge, Louisi
ana, that will be destined for use in
the production of American nitrate
lovers of the sport.
By the way, Mr. Whitley killed no
less than fifteen snakes on a fishing
trip recently when the fish didn't
bite so well. Mr. Whitley says he
shoots a snake from a safe distance.
These snake hunters appear to have
a wholesome fear of what the snake
might do if he got a chance to strike
