BIBLE THOUGHT FOR WEEK
CLEAN SPEECH:' .Let your con
versation be as It becometh the gos
pel of Christ) that yet stand fast in
one spirit, with one mind striving to-;
gether for the faith of . the gospel;
and in nothing terrified.- Philippians
1:27, 28. ,
"Procrastination is the thief of
time' Who doesn't remember ex
actly how that word "procrastina
tion" looked at the top of the clean,
white page of the old copy book ? It
was a beautiful new word, a word
the .meaning of which had to be in
quired about. Most of us have learn
ed all about it since.
HNever put off until tomorrow that
Which you can do today." -Franklin.
"Unhappy he who does his work
adjourn, and to tomorrow would the
search delay; his lazy tomorrow will
be like today." Persius.
"Undue procrastination indicates
that a man does not see his way
"Indulge in procrastination, and in
time you will come to this, that be
cause a thing ought to be done
therefore you cannot do it." Charles
"The man who procrastinates
struggles with ruin." Selected.
And bo on, and so on.
All of which is but another way of
admitting that that which should
have been written on this page yes
terday, or the day before, or per
haps the day before that, was de
ferred until today, and today there
is no time to write.
However, to quote again: "Never
do today that which you can put off
until tomorrow. Tomorrow may give
clearer light as to what is best to be
There! The whole thing is clear.
Waiting, procrastinating, if you
please, has solved the problem. The
waste of time and effort in giving
expression to whatever the editor of
The Perquimans Weekly may think is
really unnecessary. Upon reflection,
it is evident that the thing had bet
ter not be said.
"Thoughts unexpressed may rome
times fall back dead, but God Him

NEW PEANUT STATISTIC LAW
President Roosevelt yesterday sign
ed into law the new measure pro
viding for the publication of statis
tics on peanuts in the raw state.
The law will operate similarly to
that controlling cotton which re
quires ginners to report the number
of bales ginned and warehouses -and
others the amount of cotton stored
or on hand.
We have not seen a copy of the
peanut statistics law, but it probably
provides for . operators of picking
machines to report the number of
bags picked. After the nuts are
marketed, millers, warehousemen and
all persons or firms buying or stor
ing the raw product will be required
to report to the agricultural depart
If the statistics law works well
with cotton factors we see no reason
why it should not b eas helpful to the
peanut industry. It seems to us
that it' will reduce opportunities for
speculation and have a stabilizing ef
fect upon the market.
It should be a protection to mill
ers and to processors. The carry
over known, it should have the effect

TlIER li tcaaoa"why Louis Meyer won the
5004nile Indiaaapoli ce thii year end why he la the
only man ever to win this gruelling race three , -times.
He always wed Firestone Gum-Dipped Tires,
and never experienced tire trouble of any hind,
Louis Meyer knows dre construction. He also
knows that to drive for 500 consecutive miles over
this hot brick track; negotiating the dangerous curve .
800 times at die recordweaking average speed of 109
miles an hour, requires tires of super strength end
greatest blowout protection, as a blowout on any one
of the dangerous curves would likely mean instaitT
death. v Bv the Firestone patented Gum-Dipping i
process every cord in the tires on Louis Meyer's car was soaked and
coated with liquid rubber, thereby preventing internal friction and
heat. This is the secret ot tne extra strengtn ana reserve saiety duuc
into Firestone Tires.
When you make your holiday trip this week-end, yon of course
will not drive 109 miles per hour, but at today's higher speeds you
do need tires that will give you greatest blowout protection and will
stop your car up to 25 quicker. Take no chances! Let. us equip
your car today witn rirestone oum-iyippea Aires, me saest wh
