"And what do you think the Rus

these years? One of our most im
portant newspaper women said what
struck her when she went to Russia
about 12 years ago was that the re
volution she had gone to observe
was actually an attempt at a violent
ly imposed industrial advance. The
Russians were trying to change from
a feudal system of great Hand owners
and peasant labor to the electric age
almost overnight. What they were
really doing was trying to catch up
with lis. The:r aims haven't been
achieved because they are the result

have already . . . distribution of the
fruits of rrodern mass production
among the people as a whole."
Last week Dr. C. A. Davenport
decided to sell his son's old bicy
cle, which was not needed due to
the present of a newer one, so the
doctor inserted a small classified
ad in The Perquimans Weekly . .
the paper was issued on Friday
and by mid-afternoon Saturday
the doctor informed us that he had
had some 26 inquiries about the
bicycle and had sold it . . . that
is conclusive evidence that adver
tising in The Weekly brings re
sults. You, too, may have some dis
carded articles that can be con
verted into cash by using a small
classified ad in The Weekly.
Why not try it?
B1Tf REGARDING BEVER
i AGE ALCOHOL
Sunday School Lesson
r February 2, 1941
" jearnce of evil. I Thess.
'rH Text: Habakkuk 2:15;
LT 412; Mark 942-48;
JJT npiess. 522.
heen t.VtA nmt.fvm tirirnncrri-
ut jTears, there is a lesson
dealmMth some form of temper
f y three months.. This will
" truuring 1941 as well, begin-
?.W4 WW Tablets with 666
TMuLl 6M 'W0 DrP8 generally
ning with our lesson for this week.
The four temperance lessons this
year conce : ion: important aspects
of the sub :t. V.'.a fisst deals with
an individual's responsibility regard
ing beverajre alcohol, the second the
responsibili' y of the home concern
in? this ev'l, tlie third the responsi
bility of t'lc organized church to
ward beverage alcohol, and the series
doses with a discussion of the re
sponsibility of the community and
civic authorities on this question.
All in all, this ought to be an inter
esting and informative series of dis
cussions on this very important
matter which affects every single
person in every single community
in our land.
Of course, we cannot attempt a
discussion of the responsibility of
others toward this subject until- wa
definitely and finally decide just
what our own responsibility is. Be
cause our bodies are the "temples of
God" whose we are, anything that
we do that may destroy our bodies
is a desecration of our "temples,"
and is, therefore, a sin. Surely no
sane person can argue that the
drinking of alcohol will, not event
ually, destroy one's body.
Doubly sinful, however, is he who
encourages another to drink for the
deliberate purpose of causing intox
ication to another. The words of the
Old Testament prophet Habakkuk
j'pAuse of the change in the Wage and
vHc lMv'reducine, the nrnnhpr rf hours from
40 per week, and in order that our cler-
kvork might be completed within the 40
limit, this Bank beginning February 1st,

position and arrange their banking busi-
nei during these new hours.

rin? out in denunciation of such a
one. Quoting from another writer,
who paraphrases the taunt song of
Habakkuk thus: "Woe unto him
that distils and brews alcoholic bev
erages that he may fatten his purse
by that which degrades mankind!
Woe unto him that sells the stuff
and shuts his eyes to the conse
quences! Woe unto him that pre
pares the alluring advertisements to
induce others to drink! Woe unto
ir.m who publishes magazines and
newspapers which carry such adver
tisements! Woe unto him that uses
the radio to slip his noxious an
nouncements into unsuspecting
homes! Woe unto him that in the
name of hospitality offers a nar
cotic as a social drink! Woe unto
him or her that serves the innocent
looking cocktail which awakens the
craving for alcohol! Woe unto him
that votes for the sale of liquor that
business may be stimulated! Woe
unto him that tolerates the sale and
taxation of liquor that he may es
cape heavier personal taxes!
"The individual who for any ad
vantage or reason, is responsible for
inducing, directly or indirectly, oth
ers to drink alcoholic beverages, is
responsible for supporting a social
evil which has long taken, and con
tinues to take, its terrific toll in
human life and slavery."
The most common argument heard
against the using of one's influence
against the sale and use of alcoholic
liquors is that we are not to inter
fere in another's "personal liberty."
How weak an argument this is! If
we were to see a friend about to be
bitten by a deadly snake, wouldn't
we cry out a warning? Certainly!
There would be no question of his
privilege of walking where he want
ed to we would do our best to keep
him from such danger. The Chris
tian who loves his fellowman is duty
J)ound to do all he can to protect
him from himself. "Am I my
brother's keeper?" By all means.
Are we responsible for our influ
ence? Are we to refrain from do
ing anything which to us is not
harmful because that thing might
prove a stumbling-block to a weakei
brother? Or, should we go our
merry way, doing what we want to
and like to, with never a thought of
the effect of our actions upon our
fellowman? Whether we want to
believe it or acknowledge it, or not,
the fact remains that no person is
without his influence for good or
bad, upon others. Jesus had this in
mind when he warned against caus
ing humble people to stumble (Mark
9;42-48). Paul accepted the power
of his influence when he refrained
from doing what might prove to be
harmful in its effect upon others
(I Cor. 8).
We hesitate to contemplate the
price which so-called "high society"
is going to be called upon to pay
for "setting the style" in alcohol
drinking which has led and is still
leading many people who follow their
lead down to destruction and early I
graves. Isn't it a pity that our so
ciety leaders couldn't use their im
mense influence for the uplift, rather
than the destruction, of their fellow

Six-Point Program For
Quality Poultry Given
T. T. Brown, Extension poultry
specialist of N. C. State College,
says the greatest need in the North
Carolina poultry industry is to im
prove the quality of poultry pro
ducts offered on the market. "Local
distributors of poultry products are
always glad to handle our local pro
ducts if we will furnish them qual
ity eggs and meat in sufficient
quality and steadily," he says.
As a six-point program for pro
ducing quality poultry, Brown lists:
( 1 ) Keep onfly purebred poultry and
secure the chicks or stock from a
dependable breeder; (2) avoid over
crowding allow baby chicks at least
one square foot of floor space for
each two chicks, exclusive of space
occupied by the brooder; (3) provide

plenty of ventilation without floor
drafts; (4) use high quality feed
and feed liberally; (5) provide am
ple feed and watering equipment;
and (6) clean and disinfect the house
and equipment thoroughly before the
chicks are started, and keep the
house and yards clean.
Three marketing hints are also
given by the State College specialist:
(1) Destroy thin, light, and diseased
birds, never offer them on the mar
ket and market only finished birds;
(2) grade and assort live market
birds according to size, color and
finish; and (3) starve birds to be
dressed for 15 to 20 hours before
slaughter, but do not withhold
"Unless we meet the quality re
quirements," Brown declared, "we
shouldn't blame local distributors
rrom going to California and the
Middle West for eggs and dres-sed
poultry, and to Texas for dressed
turkeys. As much as some of us
apparently disflike it, it will be
necessary to dress and grade market
poultry and turkeys, and to candle
and grade eggs before these pro
ducts reach the retailer."
