Newspapers Best News Medium, Declares Noted Statesman In Magazine New York. Primacy of the news paper press as the "only real and trustworthy medium for dissemina tion of news and the moulding of pub lic opinion',' is upheld by Winston Churchill, noted English statesman. After a thorough analysis of the subject, Mr. Churchill is convinced "thete cin"ber no'-really serious chal lenge to the press for either radio or moving pictures," and, looking fur ther ahead, from promised television. "I believe that both England and America can be proud of their press," he says, writing in Collier's. "I be lieve they can trust their press. In other countries whose peoples are less intelligent or where educa tion is less careful of the individual mind, the future of publicity may lie with radio and moving pictures. Un der distatorships the press is bound to languish, and the loud-speaker and the film to become ever more import ant. But where free institutions are indigenous to the soil, and men have the habit of liberty, the press will continue to be the Fourth Estate, the vigilant guardian of the rights of the ordinary citizen." Mr. Churchill sees no "menace in advertisements" nor does he believe there could ever be any successful corner of news and opinion in the United States or England. "It would be affectation to ignore two burning questions," the Collier? article by Mr. Churchill continues. "The concentration of newspaper ownership in relatively few hands and the power of advertisers to dictate policy are both held to trespass upon the freedom Of the press. "Frankly, I. think that both these fears are exaggerated. There is saf ety in numbers. A press combine must, as a matter of business, dele gate a large measure of responsibility for policy to its editors and a great editor stamps ' his own personality upon the paper Which he controls, and no newspaper can afford to suppress important news which its rivals will print. "There is certainly no menace in advertisements." It was the develop ment of commercial advertising that first enabled the press to stand on its own feet, without relying on subsidies from governments or politicians, and revenue from this sousce is. still the bulwark of its independence today. , 4AdyerUB.era -are -business men-r-they pay;, to ,hajve -k their announce ment, placed before the largest pos sible public,, and they ought to know that permanent! circulations can only be secured by .honest news and, honest "A ' free, press its . the unsleeping guardian of every "other right that free ' wen pme? dttia the f,oipstu.dan oferouk foe of tyranny,", he h writes U Woadeti- ihen Athat the i great democracies nave always peen quicic jflleiifltfli; limlt.iti in denendence or to bring it under regu- libstwaq Program tosfs.1 U f At Befhlehenr Church fT)ieretwiil be aVChristmaS tree .and a special Christmas, program at the Rethlehem.

In society it is helpfulness. In work it is fairness Toward the unfortunate it is the helping hand. Toward the weak it is burden bearing. Toward the wicked it is evangelism.

COUNTY ENJOYS WHITE CHRISTMAS First Time In Many Years That Ground Was Covered With Snow Over Christmas Snow on the ground on Christmas Day! This was the first white Christ mas in this section in many years. Snow began falling at 2:30 on Sun day afternoon and continued until midnight, with the result that on Monday morning the earth was cov ered in a blanket of white.' It. has not snowed here at Christ mas before "since the memory of man runneth not to the contrary." This only applies to the younger gener tion, however, as some of the older folks distinctly recall a Christmas when everything was covered ir white. One recalls that either in 1891 or 1892 it began snowing on Christmas Eve and that the snow continued to fall through most of Christmas Day. That was a heavy snow. Another says that once since then. probably around 1900, there was snow at Christmas. But it has been sufficiently rare to give those Who love a picture post card Christmas s real thrill at the sight of snow at Christmas, and nobody under thirty has ever seensnow in Perquimans a' Christmas before. 3,053 Bales Of Cotton Ginned To Dec 13th W.
