UNITED STATES SENATOR
. Ae members oil. Congress consider
? legislation of vital importance to ttie
country and endeavor to speed the
, wheels of Industry and ' commerce,
they find inspiration and hope in the
' faces of many thousands of young
sters coming te . Washington at this
season, Perhaps never before have
there been greater opportunities for
youth to see Washington and learn
i the functions and objectives of government.
Events of the last week are a case
in point. In one parade alone, some
' 11,000 youngsters in their early teens,
representing school safety patrols in
-eighteen states and the national cap
ital marched down Constitution
i I -The significance of the youth move
ments in our country today can not
,be overestimated. It is only neces
sary to compare them with what is
taking place abroad to find new hope
t In many -countries boys and girls
.are learning military drills, the use
of fire arms, and how to protect
i themselves from the ravages of war.
They are being reared in the belief
that war will come. They are grow
ing up in an atmosphere of suspicion
and distrust. Compare that situation
with whet is taking place in the
Here we have many millions of
youngsters enlisted in great move
ments that have as their purpose
. self-betterment and public service.
The school safety patrols, Boy
Scouts and other groups too numer
ous to mention, are all being taught
respect for their elders. They are
being given to understand that world
peace is possible only when people
have in their hearts respect for au
thority and good will toward others.
Two years ago, President Roosevelt
in addressing a large group of
youngsters on the White House lawn
said in part: "The future belongs to
youth aid when youth voluntarily as
sumes helpful activities like yours
, for the benefit . of the . entire com
munity, I for one, feel ever so much
more confident in regard to the fu
ture -your future and the future of
, the country.". ,.,
It is difficult for those in Washing
ton who take the time to greet and
talk with groups of youngsters who
come here, to have deep-rooted fears
for the future. There are in our
country , today men and women who
question the future of our institu
tions and even our form of govern
ment. But there is ample evidence
t. i j- Wis " toward tomorrow
with full hope and confidence.
' Speaking of the youngsters 'coming
to Washington, an -outstanding news
paper, said: --" '' -J

Mr. and Mrs." & G. Scott Bell, of
Norfolk,. Va., are guests of Mr. and:
Mra .vSimnn Rntnnhenr this week.
' Mr. and Mrs. Bell, who have lived
in Norfolk for fifty years, were for
merly residents of Hertford, having
left here some years beore going to
Norfolk to live. ' They visit the Rut
enberg family at frequent intervals
and have always kept in close touch
While Mr. and Mrs. Bell enjoy the
association of a number of the con
temporaries of their youth, they have
many young friends as well, for this
delightful couple do not appear to be
old'folks, having kept abreast of the
times, and taking a lively interest in
the things of the day. Mr. Bell en
joys driving his car and always
drives down from his home in Nor
folk. Incidentally, both Mr. and Mrs.
Bell were attendants at the wedding
of Miss Minnie McMullan and the late
K. R. Newbold, which took place in
the old Methodist Church in Hertford
on May 12, 1880. Two others of that
wedding party of 58 years ago, not
including the bride, who with her
husband celebrated their golden wed
ding anniversary the year before his
ideath, seven years ago, are living.
They include Mrs. C. F. Sumner, Sr.,
who was then Miss Mamie Newbold,
of Hertford; and Mrs. Oscar Mc
Mullan, of Elizabeth City, who was
the former Miss Mollie Whedbee, of
Hertford. This makes five of the
party still alive.
Mrs. Bell, who at the time of the
wedding was Miss Sue Arps, and Mr.
Bell were married the year following
the Newbold - McMullan wedding.
Others in the party included Miss
South Jackson, who later became
Mrs. Robert White, of Edenton; Miss
Leila Amis, who married Gaither
Morgan; Mr. Riddick, of Gatesville;
Mr. Tanner, William Newbold, and
Hon. T. G. Skinner.
Mrs. Newbold, who was calling on
Mrs. Bell on Wednesday of this week,
while the wedding was being discuss
ed, in laughing reminiscence said the
couple went on a bridal tour to Beth
el. One reflects that it probably
took as long to drive a pair of horses
over the roads of that day as it
would to drive a car to Norfolk on
