LET AMERICAN MANAGEMENT
When trie going gets rough;
when quick, accurate and coura
geous decisions are necessary, peo
ple forsake their popular idol:
and seek those quiet, unassuming
who are ad
mired not tor
ity, but for
their ability to
get things done.
This country is
ifort u n a t e to
have the great
est group of
managers in the
world. It only
remains for the people to wak
up and help in their utilization.
America has been shaken bj
the course of events in Europe
-Pjplomats have rushed back anc
forth with a suitcase in one hanc
and a ..radio microphone in the
other. The drums of waa hav
been beaten in the pulpits
Learned academies have theorized
on democracy. Politicians have
fought and traded for the spoils
of the defense program. Business
men have groaned at the prospect
of profit and investment losses.
Through all of this the public
has maintained a stunned silence.
It has only been during the last
few weeks that this country has
begun to collect itself sufficients
to do some sound thinking. Oui
conclusions have been about the
same. We are about to "shoot the
rapids," as they say in the back
woods. Our canoe will be in con
stant danger. Next comes the
question of who is going to han
dle the paddle. We find ourselves
looking for cool-headed men whe
have bee,n forged in the fires ol
adversity and emergency.
America Is about to ?eaH on.
Charlie, John and Sam those!
great managers who have come
up through the ranks because they!
are natural leaders. Every day Is;
election day for them because
their men must love and respect
them as they work shoulder to
shoulder. Such managers have
the courage to make spot deci
sions and, yet, their vision enables
them to make a series of correct
decisions that lead to planned re
suits. They are accustomed to
handling management on one side
and labor on the other. They
must blend the interests of these
two successfully so they can pro
duce the goods.
America has the best managers
in the world. No matter what
turn the world emergency may
take, we have able managers to
handle the situation. There is
more ingenuity in American man
agement than in any other group
in the world. Our army and our
navy are both in the hands of
good managers. If we have an
economic war to fight, our man
agers are equal to the task. If it
is manufacturing, we can produce
it. If it's food, our farmers can
Other countries have economic
resources, but it takes manage
ment to get the most out of these
resources. A natural leader, as
a result of his accomplishments
and ethics, can command the re
spect of his fellows where neither
law nor emergency can accom
plish that end.
Fear has defeated many nations,
even before they put a man on
the field of battle. A true man
ager knows no fear. He will try
anything because his life has been
filled with the successful com
pletion of so-called "impossible"
tasks. Management will not only
lead America to victory in any
endeavor, but will prove to be her
greatest symbols of democratic
Few people realize it but there
is a fundamental reason why de
mocracy cannot be destroyed.
Totalitarianism and communism
are failing because of lack of
proper management Socialism
has failed without management.
Why can't these ideologies inter
est management brains? The
answer is simple.
Managers are the most demo
cratic men in the world. They
are democratic in thought and ac
tion. Democracy is the only form
of government that appeals to
them, and they will not stand by
and see it destroyed.
Coyotes Good Mousers
According to naturalists of the na
tional park service, the coyote is a
better mouser than the cat. His
keen sense of hearing and sight,
quickness of movement and ability
to blend with the background of
grass and shrubs makes him an
excellent hunter of these rodents.
' ' Charles II Liked Music
Although Charles II could play no
musical instrument, he surrounded
himself with those who could fur
:'; nifih almost any kind of music. At
, his coronation anthems and rare
music, with lutes, viols, trumpets,
organs and voices were then heard.

June As 'Dairy Month
Governor J. M. Broughton has
given his whole-hearted endorsement
to the National June Dairy Month
campaign, says John A. Arey, Exten
sion dairy specialist of N. C. State
College and iState chairman of the
campaign. The Governor went fur
ther, Arey said, by advocating that
1941' be marked by a decided increase
in the number of dairy cows on
North Carolina farms.
The Governor pointed out that the
average dailp consumption of milk in
North Carolina is four-tenths of one
pint per person; the average daily
consumption per person in the United
States-as-a-whole is one pint. "This
is a serious situation," Governor
Broughton declared, "when we con
sider that milk is Nature's most per
fect human food."
The fact that 98,000 farm families
in North Carolina were without milk
cows at the time of the last census
was termed "appalling" by the Gov
ernor. He urged that livestock be
kept as a supplement to row crop en
terprises, such as tobacco and cotton.
The June Dairy Month campaign
is of f to a good start, Arey declared.
Stores throughout North Carolina
have arranged attractive displays of
dairy products. Drug stores, safes,
restaurants and other places where
food is served are featuring milk
drinks, ice cream, butter and cheese.
