Lord, and do not . the things which I say."—Luke 6:46. We know Christ in the spending of ourselves. It would seem that none knew Him so little as those icho conceived righteousness to he harm lessness. No sinner seems to have been so intolerable lo Him as those spineless passive souls who like the unfaithful servant, expect ed. commendation for doing nothing. Christ’s most startling and withering rebukes were delivered consistently to one group—those who stopped with negative righteousness. —From “Today” WHERE BLAME LODGES How large a part human fallibility plays in highway accidents is shown by the fact that 93 per cent of traffic fatalities in North Carolina last year were directly attributable to faulty driving and only seven per cent to defective motor vehicle equipment. Keitij Saunders, highway division safety represen tative, drew attention to this in an interview with Mayor Cooper yesterday. Mr. Saunders 1b abroad in the state as a missionary to spread the gospel of safe driving. Automotive engineers have made motoring safe as it can be mechanically made with present knowledge. Until ingenius inventors discover new ways to safeguard motor ve hicles from mechanical hazards, we must be lieve that the present level of security is high enough to serve all reasonable demands. If accidents are blameable on equipment they usually can be traced to neglect of rou tine inspection of brakes, headlights, wind shield wipers and oil and gas lines; and not to fundamental mechanical faults. Even here, the responsibility rests on the driver, or own er, who has not given his vehicle the care ordinary common sense dictates it should have. Among human frailties to which the vast majority of accidents may be traced is a pre disposition, all too general, to believe oneself an efficient driver and to take chances in traffic for that reason, it would help if every person behind a steering wheel admitted that he or she is quite capable of faulty judgment in a pinch and avoid emergencies which cal! for instant correct thinking. If we avoid tight places, keep out of the pinches, and travel the highways with an eye to safety in all circumstances, that 93 per cent re sponsibility for deaths in traffic will soon be cut down. » All that can be said against us is that as a nation we are too small. — Foreign Minister vaino Tanner of Finland, 'N <- t 4 HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL 'T'HE senate commerce committee, of which Senator Josiah W. Bailey is chairman, has decided to do something about needed rivers and harbors work this year after all. Knowing that the major projects upon which it had previously set its heart are doomed this year, it has voted to trim its bill to com paratively small undertakings, eliminate flood control, and report it out of committee. As hope has a way of springing eternally in the human heart, Wilmington today is cud dling the hope that its needs may be among the “small undertakings’ listed in the revised and emasculated measure to emerge from the committee. To "Wilmington, at least, the widening and deepening of the Cape Fear river channel and enlargement of the turning basin are not small. On the contrary, they are tremendous factors in the development of Wilmington’s commerce and in the fulfill ment of its opportunity in ship-borne trade. However “small’’ they may be in the national picture, they loom above all other undertak ings in assuring Wilmington economic se curity. Neither Senator Bailey’s letter to the Chamber of Commerce nor Associated Press lispatches reveal how deeply the committee proposes to cut into the heart of the original jill, but it is something to know that it has it last decided upon a definite course of ac :ion. with the hope that its revised measure nay meet approval both by congress and by :he White House, and an enabling act under which actual work may be started will speed ily follow. It will be even better to learn that the Wil mington project has survived the whittling low in process. GOOD WORD FOR FARLEY President Roosevelt places the seal o£ de lial on an alleged interview, retailed by Er nest K. Llxdley, columnist, in which the :hief executive was quoted as telling an' in imate that he would not consider a third errn; that Secretary o£ State Hull would be i good candidate, and that Postmaster Gen iral Farley would not do for the vice presi lency because of his religion. The Lixdley article has attracted wide at ention because Mr. Roosevelt had let it go inchallenged. The reference to Farley, in ight of the President's silence, was pounced in by the opposition press, because of his :ampaign services to the President. Silence vas accepted as a poor return for the friend ;hip the chief of the postal service and chair nan of the national democratic committee lad for him, and had employed so sedulously or him in times past. Now the President says there is no word it truth in the Lixdley article, that he had lever talked along that line to any distin ;uished statesman from any point of the com lass. Furthermore, he defended his good Tiend Farley for his political tolerance, and ixplained his previous silence by saying he rad not read Lixdley’s outburst at the time if its appearance in print and that his con finement with a cold prevented earlier denial if its authenticity. That closes the matter. Farley and Roose celt are still friends, and that's a good thing for the democratic party, to which we owe al legiance, whatever the ultimate decision on a third term may be. WATERWAY ASSOCIATION The movement to establish a North Caro lina Waterways association deserves commen dation and cooperation. Cities along navigable streams and those on the coast may expect to obtain greater improvements and larger commerce by pull ing together than by tugging along separate ly, which so often creates competitive ill will and obstructive cross-currents in en deavor—and failure of accomplishment. North Carolina has not reached the peak in waterway progress, ,probably because it lack ed just such an association as this. If direc tion of its affairs is. vested in proved and energetic leadership, its success should go without saying. Wilmington can well afford to participate in the association’s program, and its backing for Wilmington’s commercial endeavors will be of Inestimable value. Even if we get fed eral funds for completion of channel and harbor improvements, there will be much still to do to attract cargoes and industries to supply cargoes. In this, the proposed waterways association will be able to lend a hand, and in return Wilmington will be able to forward similar undertakings in other cities of the state served by water transport. The account between Wilmington and other state portg could be kept in perfect balance through the association. Organization plans should be perfected, and quickly. CMTC CAMPS With New Hanover county allotted but seven men in the Citizens Military Training Corps program for the coming summer en campments, it is to be expected that many applicants will have to be rejected. Young men have come to realize the ad vantages in discipline and orderly training these CMTC camps offer, and know that what they learn during the periods they spend in camps will be of great value to them in their later years. Right now, with American parents shun ning all thought of war for their sons, it will cause an involuntary shock in most homes to learn that the government is en gaged in instructing maturing youth in the principles of warfare. These parents may find solace in the knowledge that their sons will be better fitted to do their part in life by learning to be good soldiers. And if military service should be required of them, which God forbid, they will be the more efficient for this preliminary training. i-- I WASHINGTON DAYBOOK By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON, March 20.—The capital in wartime: A friend of mine—a fellow toiler in the pub lishing marts—needed some large-scale maps of France. He went to the Library of Congress and found almost what he needed, but being x leave-no-stone-unturned fellow, he decided to storm the French embassy. He got a formal introduction to one of the resigning secretaries. He explained what he wanted, what he had. The secretary graciously requested that the young man present himself lo the office of the military attache, that he 3ring what maps he had with him. The young man did so. He was received with jreat courtesy and friendliness. He was shown ibout, introduced, bowed to, chatted with. Each nention of the maps brought a friendly smile, i nod, and the word: “Presently.” Presently finally came and he explained to another offi ;ial what he wanted. The official asked to see lie maps he had brought with him. * * * Now In 1873— The official cluck-clucked in amazement. Ap parently he could not believe his eyes. Appar >ntly he felt that his country had been very ax to place with the Library of Congress so letailed a map of France. My friend explained vhy he wanted additional maps, why he must pbtain. if possible, maps that were not in color. About this time, the official’s face lighted jp. He "ah’d.” He pointed, good-naturedly, to i small inscription in the corner of the maps: 'Reproduction is not permitted." Patiently the :oiler explained that he did not wish to repro luce them. He only needed these and others to ;uide him in preparing his own. The official went away. He was gone a long ;ime. When he came back, he was beaming. By .vriting to this address in Paris, the young nan probably could get just what he wanted —a series of most complete maps of France, published in 1875. My friend almost fainted. He did not wrant 1875 maps. Perhaps the French embassy had heir wars confused. That was the Franco ?russian war. He wanted 1940 maps. The official was-so sorry. The embassy would >e so glad to help. But he did not see how it jould possibly do more. At this point in the stalemate, a secretary appeared and informed ny friend that his excellency the ambassador vould receive him now. * « * tonic Again The fellow stuttered and stammered. He did rot wish to see the ambassador. He had noth ng to discuss with the ambassador. But the jenuine friendliness and kindness had him stymied. He could not say so. Count de Saint-Quentin, the ambassador, s a pleasant man. He is a man of wide ex lerience and great knowledge. He fought in he World war. The long chat that followed :ven touched on the subject of maps. The am >assador was interested in maps. Maps were 'ascinathig. At last, my friend came away, with the count's warm farewell pleasantly ringing in his cars. It was the French equivalent to “glad io help you anytime. Come back again soon." Probably the day's report carried back to Paris this information: “A young journalist came to the embassy today requesting some maps. We are convinced he was not a spy." But don’t fool yourself, the next fellow that comes along may be. And our chapeau is off to the French. There's not an embassy in Washington that can say “no" so graciously. Editorial Comments From Other Angles HORSESENSE AND HOKUM Raleigh News and Observer A Grade-A North Carolina magnolia to the Raleigh Chamber of Commerce for holding a dinner of businessmen and farmers which made sense for both of them and for the community ot which both are essential parts! It ought not to be any secret by this time that one of the most painful and least produc tive occasions in any small city’s year is often one of those rural-urban get-togethers where city men and farmers like strangers eat side by side. Too often on such occasions city men are deliberately engaged in a half-hearted soft soaping of the farmers for their trade. And the farmers, in pay for their suppers, have to listen to bombastic lectures on the glories of farmers and farming by some asphalt agricul turist who could not be pulled by mules to earning his bread by farming the land. Prob ably such occasions, as they convince both the farmer and the business man that the other is a solemn fool, do more harm than good. But at the dinner in Raleigh on Thursday evening in an entire absence of soft-soap and rhetoric, farmers and business men were shown by agricultural experts that in Wake county they are this year in the same hole. And both groups showed a neighboriiness in intelligence in the will to get out of it. The problem is important (though beside the point made here) : Even if farmers get as much in 1940 for their tobacco as they got in 1939 under their allotments, they will get $2,000,000 less. But there are possibilities in cotton, which Wake county has too much abandoned for tobacco, which sound speakers pointed. (A Hoke county cotton planter, T. B. Upchurch, Jr., talking technically about intelligent cotton culture, made the best and most interesting speech Ra leigh business men had heard in a long time.) The program under discussion was impor tant. Its adoption by farmers should serve both farmers and business men in Wake coun ty. But what is emphasized here is the meet ing at which it was discussed where horsesense was substituted for hokum in the gathering to gether of men from the town and the land. A lot of time has been wasted in a process of rural-urban back-rcratching. What is needed is what was done at this meeting—a working together in realization that the rural-urban re lationship is real and not rhetorical. The best way to build town and country understanding is to forget town and country differences in working in terms of town’s and country’s com mon interest in a common destiny. If we can get down to the facts under the old flattery —if we can ".ismiss the rhetoric for the reality, we may escape from the old delusion that two different peoples live on two sides of lines call ed city limits. Then, and not sooner, we will begin to get somewhere in an agricultural South where all men—town men and country men—live on the land and the crops which grow from it. I know there are many people out or employ ment because of inventions, but if there had been no technological inventions^ we would be in a state of barbarism today.—Senator George W. Norris Und., Neb.), BURGAW BAPTISTS | PLAN NEW CHURCH Campaign To Raise $5,000 For Construction Of New Building Started BURGAW, March 20.—Plans for remodeling or building a new Bap tist church here were discussed at a church conference held at the close of services Sunday morning. Members of the Burgaw Baptist church adopted a resolution calling for the beginning of a campaign to raise $5,000 toward a new church. A committee has been conferring with architects for some time rela tive to either a new building or remodeling of the present struc ture, which was termed too small to properly care for the Sunday school and church services. No specific plans have been ap proved as to the new building it self, but it will be a brick veneer structure with a seating capacity of 300 in the main auditorium, with the Sunday school plant large enough to care for an attendance of from 250 to 300 persons. HULL WILL STUDY CROMWELL’S TALK (Continued Front Page One) "American isolationists,” Represen tative Sweeney (D-Ohio) said: "If our playboy minister to Canada wants to fight for the British Em pire I respectfully suggest that he join the ranks of such distinguished American expatriates as Lady Astor and Kermit Roosevelt, so that he may ‘carry on’ for the Empire. “We should have the courage to tell Cromwell and his lawfully-wed ded fortune, Doris Duke, to get the hell out of this republic.” Under Sweeney’s resolution, the house foreign affairs committee would be directed to recommend the recall of Cromwell, if reports of the speech were found to be true. Sen ator Clark (D-Mo) had previously said that Cromwell should be recall ed because of his “outrageous” speech. Rep. Barry (D-NY) called Crom well a “garrilous young man” and said his "chief, if not sole, qualifica tion for the position he holds is his ability to contribute to the financial support of a political party.” LINER MAURETANIA ENTERS NEW ROLE (Continued From Page One) to pick up more crew members from the British Lancastria, arriv ing; in mid-morning from Canada.

'TO i \ sf r > REYNAUD SEEKING TO FORM CABINET (Continued From Page One) ’or which it was one-fourth respon sible and then directed the nation ihrough six and a half months of a :onflict of siege, quit this morning. The Reason The reason was a thick atmosphere if dissatisfaction over lack of Ai ded action in the struggle with Ger many. Gentle Albert Lebrun, the presi dent of France, asked Daladier to :orm a new government. But Da adier. smarting under the hostile refusal by the majority of the cham oer of deputies to vote on a motion if confidence early today, refused. Daladier at first refused to take my part in the new government, out tonight he was reported to have changed his mind and to have agreed :o enter a Reynaud cabinet either as minister of defense or of war. Other reports were that Georges Uandel would remain as minister of :olonies and that Reynaud himself ■vould take the foreign affairs port iolio. Reynaud. whose reorganization of French finances is rated as one of die greatest achievements of the Daladier administration and whose personal political star has been ris ng steadily, was called in. Promises Reply Chary of words to meet the clam >r of the press for “action” to get in with the war, the erstwhile min ster of finance said merely, after alking with Lebrun, that the presi lent had asked him to form a gov ernment and that he had promised lis answer by tomorrow morning. | That meant he would canvass the Ituation during the night and that le expects to know by morning whether he has the necessary sup lort and the men to make up his abinet. From all sides warnings were he- 1 ng sounded that France must not i emain without a government for a \ eries of days, as has happened often n past crises. The government upset, although 1 t has been predicted for months, : ame about through what, in many 3 [uarters, was quite frankly called a ( fluke.” The event really was precipitated 1 iy the Russo-Finnisli peace. ; oiuim uirans \ Criticism of the state of affairs i rhich prevented adequate aid from eing: sent to the Finns broke into a c torm. i Tlie government had to bear the l runt of charges that its policy had ] een weakened. Then cries for a \ lore effective prosecution of the • par with Germany became a chorus, t It was obvious, at length, that Da- r idier at least would have to alter i iis cabinet to meet demands for a 1 nore wieldy ministry and one which pould demonstrate that every pos- \ ibility was being plumbed to push i he war to a decisive finish. j After Daiadier went before the r enate last Friday and got a unani mous confidence vote, despite sev- c nty abstentions, it was thought that he most ho would do would be to 1 lake the cabinet alterations. o But instead of reshuffling his cab- 1. let immediately and going before a he chamber Tuesday with the c hanges made—which might have 1 ltered the whole story—he put them o ff and appeared with his old cabi- I et. All yesterday afternoon and t iroughout the night he talked to ie deputies in a 12-hour secret ses- e on.

A German at tack on this island naval base last Saturday precipitated the 43-plane Sylt raids of Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The raid, the biggest Britain has made in this war, brought authori tative predictions that a new phase in Britain's aerial attack had been ushered in. Punctuating- the daring of the new tactics, British fliers today re turned to the scene to take photo graphs of the damage they hai done and to drop a few more bombs on objectives that had not been destroyed in the long bombing i the night before.
