I Cobixtiiiaxs 13:4, 5. 6. 7 CAN’T FIND GOD That’s a strange story from Murphy—that the sheriff can’t find God in Cherokee county. "Cherokee” derives from the Indians, and Pope found that the Indian’s untutored mind "Sees God in trees or hears Him in the wind.” Surely there are people in Cherokee coun ty, as everywhere else, who could point out God to him in a sunset or the tangled beauty of a cloud-swept sky; in the symphonies of birds or the swelling grandeur of spring’s un folding blooms; in a child’s laughter, a bride’s eyes; in poverty relieved; in flowing streams, ripening grain, grazing stock. God is not hard to find. It is only neccs iary to know Him, when found. But the Cherokee sheriff has to bestow upon Him the estate of an eccentric woman. And that, forsooth, is a different matter. Gon gives. He is, indeed, hard to discover on the ; receiving end. NEW LIBRARY STACKS In asking bids for steel book racks the city commission has acceded to a demand heard among library patrons and prepared the way for better conservation of the li brary’s stock In trade. When the library moves hack into its quar ters at the rehabilitated city hall the books will be in permanent shelf units, where they will be less likely to create fire and other hazards than at any time during the library’s existence. The old wooden stacks will become something to remember only as a handicap overcome, as one recalls the ache in a tooth long extracted. The city commission is to be congratulated for its response to a popular demand from It large section of the citizenship. Its action demonstrates, in a small but no uncertain way, what the people can do when they make their wishes known to the authorities. IN THE INTEREST OF ACCURACY ^"MTING an extreme case. Ammon McLellan, division manager of the 1940 census, told the Kiwanis club, which he addressed Wednes day, that were John Dillingeb abroad and located by an enumerator, the FBI or other police agency would not be given information of his whereabouts. We might question the wisdom of this, on the ground that public safety is more im portant than any bureau rule, but as the il lustration was used to point a fact only it is not to be taken too literally. What Mr. Mc Lellan had in mind was to impress on his hearers’ minds that information obtained in taking a census is inviolate and cannot be passed on, in any circumstances except, we may believe, in the case of fugitives from justice, to any other branch of government or to any private citizen. All census data—he emphasized the fact—goes into national tabu lations and, once gathered, information from individuals or firms becomes merely a punch in a card from which totals are struck off. This is important, in the cause of accuracy.! No one need hesitate to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you, fear- j ing it will be available to tax collectors or j other agents of distress. Nuff said. DAY OF PRAYER Wilmington’s Christian women today are joining their sisters everywhere in observ ance of the World Day of Prayer. The Church of the Covenant is to be open from 10:30 this morning until 5 this afternoon for medita tion and supplication. Starting in 1927, the custom of holding world days of prayer has reached new frontiers, won new recruits, so that now Christian women in approximately sixty countries share in its rare privileges of fellowship and inter cession. Sponsors say for it: “It is the hope of Christianity that the barriers of race and class shall be broken down—that all men may learn to follow Him wno alone has the way of life—that His witnesses may be faithful and that a way be found by which individ- , uals and nations may dwell together in peace and understanding.'’ History reveals no period when peace and understanding were more needed. Much—far too much—of the world is dominated by hate, by war, by despotism and misunderstanding. Thinking persons throughout the world agree that the only hope of succor is in spiritual guidance. This World Day of Prayer offers opportunity for the world’s women to unite in a common plea for international sanity and justice, in which alone world security lodges. A VOICE AT SEA The radio beacon which will be erected at the mouth of the Cape Fear river will mark another step ahead foi Wilmington’s port and for ships plying coastal waters. In announc ing approval of the project, Senator Bailey advised Louis T. Moore, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, that the long cam paign of the chamber, the Pilots’ association and the Southport Civic club (recently reor ganized as the Brunswick County Chamber of Commerce had culminated in the allotment of necessary money and that work would start as soon as materials could be assembled. The beacon will be at Bald Head, or there abouts, where the river empties into the At lantic. Its chief function will be to signal vessels at sea, by which they may determine their location. It will be a valuable asset of the coast guard service. Perhaps it is not too optimistic to think that it may be the initial step toward a de fense base in his region, a dream W’ilmington cherishes as a project which will not only bo of local benefit but an aid to national secur ity. Via the coast guard we may yet reach the ear of army or navy planners. JUSTICE fO THE CITY Quoting inaccurate information, these col umns cited city and county contributions to the tuberculosis sanitarium at $900. Correct ing its error, and apologizing for it, we are glad to point out that the city authorities for three years, including 1940, have appro priated $4,800 tor the sanitarium, and in 1939 added $2,000 for special construction. Editorial Comments From Other Angles ENTIRELY TOO EXAGGERATED (Charlotte Observer) Candidate Dewey makes the charge that the new deal has prevented 9,000,000 Americans from finding gainful employment. We mention the matter more for the purpose of showing what may be expected in the com ing presidential campaign in the way of ex aggerations if this is a sample from the repub lican side. Of course, exaggerations are expected. Per haps, worse than that. Put it is amazing to have a man who con cedes himself to be worthy of the presidency of the United States coming so flatfootcdly as this with a charge that the new deal is re sponsible for 9,000,000 being out of work and being kept out of work. Mr. Dewey can’t prove it, but he adds no reservation in offering the statement just as it stands, even knowing that he is totally un able to verify such an opinion. The new deal and iLs relation to unemploy ment has been unsatisfactory, but it is not in keeping with the facts to make the accusation that its policies have prevented those already unemployed to find profitable occupation. REAL ESTATE ATTITUDE (Alabama Journal) The real estate men of Montgomery, who represent not only their own holdings, but handle the affairs of many private property owners, have taken the position that they do not object to the slum clearance projects if at least one old unit is destroyed for each new unit constructed, and if tenants of the gov ernment-sponsored projects are confined to those in the lower income brackets so as not to be demoralizing of the whole rental situa tion "in the city. It is assumed that these existing differences have largely been ironed out, and that the two projects, one for whites and one for negroes, will be a credit to Montgomery and will fill j a real need without inflicting hardship in any direction. One of the most potent arguments in favor of the new projects is the improvement it will bring about in sanitary and living conditions in the vicinity of Maxwell Field where the white project is to be located. In building these structures it is also essential to provide that there be adequately supervised upkeep, and that the appearance of the buildings be main tained. There is something to be desired along this line in the unkempt appearance some of j the previous housing projects have already j taken on. WASHINGTON REPORT By CHARLES P. STEWART (Central Press Columnist) WASHINGTON, Feb. 8— According to the Conference of the Cause and Cure of War, recently held in Washington, the first thing to do toward discovery of the cure is to deter mine definitely “What's the cause?” In other words, a correct diagnosis of any disease must precede a decision upon the right medicine for it. This sounds reasonable. The trouble is, war's pracical students say, that it’s been impossible, down through the ages, to get the world’s fore most diagnosticians to agree. Director David Bryn-Jones of the Kellogg foundation of Carleton college, addressing the conference, prescribed “an organization more ambitious than the League of Nations, to strike at the root of conflicts, not merely to attempt medication of disputes which already are be yond control.” It seems logical—if it will work. For in stance, I read an advertisement a few days ago which said, "Laxatives are a bad thing. Don't become constipated in the first place. Eat your breakfast feed regularly and you won't be. Don't let constipation get beyond control.” Yet sometimes it does, even by regular eaters of that particular breakfast food. There's another way to put it. Dr. Bryn Jones’ theses is that, the League of Nations medicine having failed, take it in larger doses— “more ambitious” ones. The heck of that is that with increasing dos age the effect wears off. An Oriental Remedy Mrs. Ammu Swaninadhan of the All-India Women's conference, preahed the value of ‘non-violent resistance to war.” ‘‘The western world’s treatment,” she said, ‘‘has been tried and found useless. It’s time that we turned to the philosophy ol the Far East—passive resistance.” Yeali—but consider Oriental Japan and Ori ental China. Mrs. May Bell Harper of the Women's Chris tian Union advocated an international aviation service to lick, as policemen, the tar out of peace disturbers. O. K.—if that’s pacifism. Serve them right, certainly—but is It pacifis ts? Free Trade Secretary of State Cordell Hull thinks he has the right anti-war remedy. His theory is that all wars essentially are on economic grounds. He maintains that future clashes can be prevented by reciprocal trade compacts. Personally, I've no doubt that he’s right. However, can he get such an international alignment? His remed. s o. k., but the patients won’t take it. The difficulty is that, If one patient does take it, and the others do not, it will be to the disadvantage (at least temporarily) of the patient that does. Ultimately they all benefit by it, but temporarily maybe not. A Peace Conference The pacifists naturally want a peace confer ence. However, they’re afraid that such a confer ence will yank them right smack into the war. They’ll have to take sides. Peaceful as they are, they have their preferences. They’ll have to take them. Thus they Will become involved. Practical birds are skeptical of the pacifists’ altruism. What scares the belligerents is that the neu trals may fight for peace.

Unofficial reports said "hundreds” cf applicants were being enrolled oy the Finnish legation to leave as soon as possible. Only men over 27 years old outside the classes likely to be call ed this vear for Britain's army are free'to go. The British gov ernment has taken no forma! part in the work which is being super vised by Finns here. British volunteers will be in ad dition to warplanes and other ma terial R. A. Butler yesterday af firmed in the house of commons that Britain, realizing "the urgency of this matter,” was taking every measure short of actual interven tion to get material aid to the Finns quickly. George Gordon Vereker, former counselor of the British embassy in Moscow, was appointed British minister to Finland yesterday, suc ceeding T. Snow. In Hollywood By PAUL HARRISON XEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD. Feb. 8.—Behind the screen: Partly for pride, partly for luck, most directors like to ap pear in their own pictures. Usually they put on makeup and play some atmosphere bit, or maybe they 11 speak a line or two. Part of the tradition, though, i: that a direc ■ ■■■ tor mustn’t keep the pay he re ceives for a job of acting. So he sends the check to some out-of work movie vete ran. I was reminded of this practice at the preview of "Abe Lincoln in Illinois,” in which picture Director John Cromwell Paul Harrison does a notable bit as John Brown. He was in distinguished company. Raymond Massey's Lincoln is the finest characterization that ever hit the screen. Gene Lockhart, as Stephen Douglas, gives what must be the finest performance of his life, and you’ll cheer Ruth Gordon’s first screen role as Mary Todd. Everything about the picture is superb. • • • Temperament Has A Few Flings They say that from as far away as Palm Springs one can hear the explosions of temperament on the set of "I Was an Adventuress,” at 20tli-Fox. Eric von Stroheim and Zorina and Director Dregory Ratoff an not getting along as amicably as they promised, partly because of the multiplicity of accents. The stage has been closed for weeks, but von Stroheim blew up the other day and ordered n single visitor tossed off the set. Th a was embar rassing because it happened to be Alice Faye . . . Temperament flar ed at Paramount, to' when every thing went wrong in . scene played by Blanche Yurka in "The Woman From Hell.” The celebrated stage player ripped off her blond wig and heaved it clear over the scenery. Lloyd Nolan, who left Paramount a year ago because he was given only heavy roles, has been playing villians ever since on other lots. And now lie's going back to Para mount to be the heavy in “North west Mounted Police.” ...The colony's chuckling over a report that 20th-Fox will film ‘‘The Story of Don Ameche,” starring Tyrone Power . . . John Carroll is being tested for the lead in “The Rogue Song,” once done by Lawrence Tib 1 tt. In that production, Carroll was one of the chorus boys. * * * ftlrs. Jock Whitney Mrv Get Film Hole Mrs. Jock Whitney, whose hus band finances movies, always had wanted a chance to act, but so far has been able to get only her best horse In front of a camera. Now there s a report that both sho and the horse will sign with Republic to appear with Gene Autry. When J. Edgar Hoover sold a fact-packed story, “Persons in Hid ing, to the movies, he was pleased with a $10,000 check. But if the capital G-man goes to see “Under cover Doctor” and “TWe Woman From Hell,' he'll find that these pictures as well as “Persons in Hiding, all were made from his ori ginal yarn. What Mr. Hoover needs is an agent to protect him In Holly wood. J Metro gets “Philadelphia Storv” AND Katherine Hepburn. Several studios tried to buy the play but cooled when told that its star had to go with it ... To the same lot goes Frank Capra, who’ll work in dependently, as he did at Columbia ' . . After Sol Lesser scouted hund reds and tested dozens of girls for the lead in "Our Town’’ he thought of bringing out Martha Scott, who created the role on Broadway. Now everybody’s happy. According to ancient custom, a Mohammedan, on meeting a per son, may shake hands with thumbs up, then touch his breast, fore head, and lips with his hand to show that the one he greets is cher ished in his heart and thoughts and entitled to a. kiss_ Well, What Did Confucius Say? “Confucius says ...” Nobody has escaped the friend who hunches up to him these days and intones in a sing-song voice, “Con fucius says . . .” followed by a wisecrack of 1940 vintage. It’s in the air these days. Who WAS this guy Confucius, and what did he real ly say? Five hundred years before the birth of Christ, a giant of a man lived and taught in China a reverent group of pupils. He was Kung-fu-tze. Latinizing his name, foreign ers called him Confucius. Until very recently, for nearly 2500 years, his wise and lofty, yet simple philosophies dominated the life of the Chinese millions. Let’s take a look at some of the “Confucius say . . .” cracks that are going the rounds these days, and also a ! few blown-in-the-bottle observations that Confucius really made, 2500 years ago. Confucius Say: (511 B. C.) The superior man is rightly firm, not firm merely. The superior man thinks of virtue; the small man thinks of comfort. * » » To evoke love, one must love. To evoke respect, one must respect. * * * What the superior man seeks is in himself. What the mean man seeks it in others. * * * To be fond of learning is to be near to knowledge. * * * It is harder to be poor without mu.muring than to be rich with out arrogance. « * * He who requires much more him self and little from others will be secure from hatred. # * « Do not think yourself so large as to deem others small. Confucius Say: (1940 A. D.) He who sit on electric chair get imps in pants. * * * Man who slings mud, loses 'round. * * * He who sits on tack is better off. * * * He who accepts blind date usu ally gets prune. * * • He who bet on crooked horse race get taken for ride. * * * Man who go on trip to hear po litical speech Gone 'With the Wind. * * * He who spend all time at pool table end up behind S-ball. 4 4 4 Beware of beauty expert, for she be panhandler. * * • He who cut self while shaving lose face.

Under ex isting law and the regulations ap proved by the President, income re turns are not open to inspection by the general public.

S.-BLILT TOWN The famous government-built own of Greenbelt, Md., gets a mi lor new headache out of the Hatch ict, which rules federal job-holders >ut of politics. About 80 per cent of Greenbelt’s nhabitants w’ork for the govern nent. Pretty soon Greenbelt will lave an election to name town offi cials—and none of this 80 per cent can run for office or do any cam paigning. This same problem has arisen ilsewhere, notably on some far vestern reclamation projects, where practically everyone works for the government. Chances are that some imendment to the act to take care pf such cases will be sought. Unless, and until this is done, chough, towns like Greenbelt will lave to pick their officials from imong a select few. * * * DOUBLE-BARRELED PROBE EVES FARM LABOR One unnoticed angle of the La toilette committee’s investigation )f farm labor troubles in California s that it neatly dovetails with an nvestigation by the department of iustice.
