TOP O’ THE MORNING
If ye then he risen with Christ, seek those

SUNRISE FLYING
Aviation clubs in Florida cities have a new
fad. They promote sunrise Sunday cruises,
starting with the first streak of dawn and
landing at some distant city for breakfast.
They are home for the customary Sunday
morning pursuits, whether of worship or golf.
It may be but a whim. Even so, it is al
ways worth while to watch a sunrise, if only
to get a good balance for the rest of the day.
No one can watch the shifting tints, the deep
reds and pastel shadings in the East as Old
Sol takes up his daily march across the skies
without feeling better toward all humanity.
To see the panorama from the air, with water
below, or a checkerboard of farms and high
ways, must add to the picture and set the
jpectator’s skin to tingling.
Obviously it is doing this, and perhaps
more, for the Florida fliers, for we read that
the flights are having increasing participants,
and the clubs sponsoring them are receiving
applications for membership from many mere
citizens who have been guests on one or an
other flight.
We have been encouraged to fly for com
mercial advantage, or with thought of helping
the nation in any of many emergencies. Here
is a new reason, with a new' appeal to the
lovers of sheer beauty. Fly, it seems to sug
gest, for a vision that can be had in no othei
way.
START AT WRONG END
London reports Premier Chamberlain pre
paring to shake up his cabinet during th(
present recess of parliament. Chancellor o
the Exchequer, Sir John Simon, and Sir Sam
t:el Hoare, lord privy seal, are under fire
Their removal is hinted as an outgrowth o
criticism of Mr. Chamberlain among member;
of his own party.
Out of the revamped cabinet is it probabli
that a special war council will be formed
with the thought that a small group will b;
better able to deal with the conflict witl
Germany, than if all decisions had to be ai
gued and contested and finally arrived a
by the entire body.
This may end Britain’s difficulties, as fa
as war policies are concerned. On the othe
hand, it may not. There are many, evei
among persons capable of judging the nee'
accurately, who believe any cabinet shiftin;
should begin at the top.
PLAY BALL
\/f ARBLES—kites—baseballs. That’s the way
^ ^ youngsters the country over arrange
their spring play program.
It just happens that way. When frost goes
out of the ground and boys hie forth for fun,
they want to get their knuckles in the dust.
That means marbles. Then, when March’s
strong winds yield to the gentler zephyrs of
April, kites take to the air by the thousand
When the fun of flying kites begins to pall,
the weather is hot enough for baseball and
its contemporary diminutive, diamond ball.
Thus, without a steering committee to draft
a program, young America adapts its recrea
tion to the wegther.
In Wilmington, spring ripens so quickly it
practically contains all the most pleasurable
elements of summer from the start. Save for
rare exceptions, winds are not too strong for
good kiting along with marbles, and right
now, three days after its arrival, spring is
sufficiently summerlike for ball playing. If
there is any doubt that boys are already at
it, a visit to any open space, however uneven
or overgrown, will set it at rest. They are
having a grand time with bat and ball, and
perhaps with the umpire, too.
But it is all undirected, unsystematized.
The youngsters in a neighborhood or in a
school get together, choose up sides and go
to it for dear life as long as daylight lasts.
It’s fun all right, but not as much fun as it
would be if regular teams, as many as they
can form, played regular games, on regular
schedules, in regularly constituted loops with
box scores and percentage tables and league
standings, and even a post season champion
ship series.
There’s something to stir young ambition
and pride and generalship. And it can be
done if some agency gets promptly on the
job. The city administration has promised to
clear, and perhaps grade, any vacant ground
obtained for the purpose. The recreation de
partment has said it will direct the play. All
that remains to do is to secure use of the nec
essary fields—and if the game is diamond
ball the fields need not be so large.
Here is where one or more of the civic
clubs can take a hand. Or some beneficent
individual with time available to spot eligible
land and negotiate its surrender for the sum
mer to the budding Babe Ruths, et al.
Say there was a Southern and a Northern
and a Central loop, in which the boys of those
districts could do their stuff not merely to
pass away an afternoon agreeably but to prove
their mettle and train their skill. Wouldn’t
that be better than having them play in the
streets, breaking windows, interrupting traf
fic, creating accident hazards, and having
their play a mere chaotic jumble of running
and howling? You bet it would!
With the season at hand, it would seem
that the clubs of Wilmington could do no
kinder or more helpful thing for the boys
who must spend the summer at hbme than
to see that they have elbow room, and dia
mond room for their favorite sport.
CIRCUS! CIRCUS!
When the Social Service League announces
an entertainment for children it commends
attentive interest. For the Social Service
League functions in cooperation with Junior
Programs, Inc. This means that it secures
whatever is best in entertainment for the
young.
Junior Programs is the product of neces
sity. W hen a group of New Jersey women
bemoaned the fact that they could not take
their children to New York for cultural ad
vantages, one of their number, in a moment
of inspiration, thought it would be a good
thing to bring culture to the children. From
that idea sprung the organization named
above, which this year is offering half a mil
lion children cultural entertainment, on a
non-profit basis, seeking only to pay expenses
while improving the mental outlook of the
juvenile audiences.
In the early winter Wilmington’s Social
Service League presented Hansel and Gretel,
a music treat enjoyed equally by the children
and adults wise enough to attend. Now it
announces Ringmaster Carlos Animal Circus.
And there is none better, in this field of en
tertainment.
A dancing pony, a bucking mule and many
greyhounds will do their stuff in the best
center-ring manner—and that’s saying a lot.
Clowns will present their best foolery and
show their skill in the juggling and balancing
arts. The sponsors declare it the best amuse
ment brought to Wilmington this year.
The performance will be at the high school
on April 4, at 4 o’clock—late enough for all
children to gather after school. The audito
rium should be thronged, and it will be, if
Wilmington youngsters appreciate the league’s
effort to give them a good time.
Parents are encouraged to send their off
spring to the performance, not only for the
laughs they will get, but to help the league
in its worthy undertaking. It is really neces
sary that larger patronage be given if the
league is to continue its entertainment course
for the children. There is no desire to reap
a profit from the series. In fact, that would
; be contrary to the purpose. The only desire
; is to meet expenses. Thus far this desire has
not been gratified. It would be a fine tribute
i to the league If attendance at the circus
, yielded sufficient revenue to offset at least a
■ Pert of the deficit of previous entertainments.

From Other Angles
HOUSING ON THE LAND
i Raleigh News and Observer
] In the growing movements for better hous
, ing in America the one big point of need tc
’ which too 'ittle attention has until recently
been paid is the tural housing on the American
land. Such disperse bad housing does not con
form to the fixed understanding of what consti
tutes a slum but slum such housing is never
theless, perhaps the most dangerous slum in
the United States because of the predominance
of children in the rural population. If slums
make bad citizens, such citizens are developing
in slum dwellings far from the crowding of
cities.
But the solution of the rural housing prob
lem will not be easy. In an article in Survey
Graphic, Edith Elmer Wood says that "to call
SO per cent of our farmhouses sub-standard is
an understatement.” That indicates the prob
lem. John Graham, Jr., in “Housing in Scandi
navia” (University of North Carolina Press)
says that “the Scandinavian countries have long
recognized that the problem of rural housing
cannot be solved apart from the interrelated
factors of improved agricultural living and in
come.” He adds:
“They considered it impossible to attempt to
rehouse landless tenants and agricultural work
ers as an isolated measure. Their objective, the
setting up ^f independent family-sized farms,
led to the extensive development of the "small
farm holding” movement. This movement may
be said to rest on two fundamental aims: a
secure land tenure and a sound agricultural
economy.”
\ve can icai u niucii i-iuill sensiuie &canul
navia. Undoubtedly such secure tenure and
sound economy as Scandinavians insisted upon
must underlie any final and complete solution
of the rural housing' problem in America also,
just as secure employment and decent wages
must in the long run underlie any final solu
tion of t le whole problem of slums in the cities.
But if Americans must wait for the solution
of the problems of tenure, income and security
before any action is taking to alleviate the
housing situation in town and c 'untry, we will
have a long time to wait. Indeed, almost all
our social problems in town and country would
move toward disappearance if we could attain
with some dispatch greater income and secur
ity for all.
Bad housing in the country as in the city
may be only a symptom of a faulty economic
and social order. It may be symptom rather
than disease. But the symptom itself in too
many cases has reached malignant proportions.
What developed in an imperfect economic or
der becomes itself a perpetuator and promoter
of sickness in our social order. And certainly
if there is going to be public housing in the
cities as a palliative of urban problems we can
not solve, there must in justice also be efforts
to minimize the grimmest aspects of rural liv
ing without waiting for any ultimate rural re
arrangement under which, maybe, every
body would be secure.
A good many people talk contemptuously of
palliatives. What they want, they say, are
sound cures. So do the rest of us. But until we
find the cure, the palliative may be precious.
We don’t leave a man to die in a ditch because
his malady by present standards of knowledge
is incurable. And efforts in the direction of de
cency in rural housing should not wait until
the whole rural problem is neatly solved. More
children are growing in the country shacks
than in the city slums, and all of them grow
to make our civilization. Every effort to make
all of them better citizens is an effort also to
solve the fundamental problems which make
us all bewildered citizens today.

WASHINGTON, March 23—Although it will
be more than two years before anybody moves
in, elaborate preparations for a vast migration
of peoples to the Grand Coulee basin are being
made now.
Eventually, the area made fertile by Grand
Coulee water will provide
homes for half a million
What is going on now is a wr
huge study to make sure that W
the settlement will be order- I
ly and wall be handled in the §*»
wisest possible manner. [gjy
Study is being made by a g
committee sponsored by the B
Bureau of Declamation. In it ttf
are all sorts of public and
private agencies—representa
tives of the Department of ggS
Agriculture, of the army en- |S|
gineers, of the Washington f||
cuum.il auu
state college, of local cham- Bmce Cation
bers of commerce, irrigation district, highway
commissions, and so on.
Work Will Be Done
Slowly Ami Orderly
Big point the committee agrees on is that
there’ll be no rush about the job; the whole
thing likely will take 30 years, maybe longer.
Probability is that the area will be developed
in blocks, a little at a time; there’ll be noth
ing resembling the Oklahoma land rush of a
generation ago.
President Koosevelt lias said a majority
of the settlers ought to come from the dust
bowl migrants. Whatever is done about that,
only about a third of the 500,000 inhabit
ants will be on farms; past, experience on
reclamation projects indicates that when
one family takes up a farm, two other
families get opportunities in city and town.
Incidentally, past experience in settling dust
bowl migrants in western reclamation area
is being gone over with a flne-tooth comb
so mistakes can be avoided.

Political Motives
Seen In Chavez Speech
While the Hatch clean-state-politics bill tvas
under debate, Senator Shavez (Hatch’s New
Mexico colleague) jumped up with a stirring de
fense of the motives of Hatch and Congress
man Dempsey in sponsoring the legislation. He
waved a newspaper clipping which hinted that
the two were really trying to take the vote
away from citizens of Mexican descent, and
said such a hint was outrageous; he knew both
men, he said, and knew their motives were
lofty.
All of which is funny when you know
the background. Chavez is up for re-elec
tion this year; the one Democrat conceded
a chance to beat him for the nomination is
Congressman Dempsey, whose chances are
very good indeed. Conte campaign time, and
Chavez can make tine use of his “defense”
of Dempsey, if Dempsey does run.
And there’s this: few senators have a tighter
state machine back of them than Chavez.
Chavez voted against the new Hatch bill—which
riled Dempsey so much it may be the determin
ing factor in persuading him to run for the
Senate.
Everybody Wants
To Work For U. S. §
Civil Service Commissioners are beginning to
wonder if the whole population wants to work
for Uncle Sam. During the past year they
have received approximately 2,500,000 letters in
quiring about jobs not work relief; real civil
service jobs. One queer angle is the number
of letters from women who figure a war is
coming and say they’d be glad to take the job
of the young postman, for instance, so as to
' release him for the army

‘ANTI-SICKNESS’
DRIVE LAUNCHED
Illness Of Workers Cost Em
ployers More Than
Employes
PITTSBURGH, March 23—(JP)—A
movement paralleling the safety first
campaign, but aimed instead at sick
ness, has been launched in a cross
section of American industry, it wag
announced today.
The Air Hygiene Foundation re
ported it had undertaken the study
in conjunction with the United States
public health service and the Ameri
can Association of Industrial Physic
ians and Surgeons.
The purpose of the project is to eli
minate some of the causes of what
the foundation calls “sick absentee
ism"—the absences of industrial
workers due to sickness that cost
American workmen and industry
hundreds of millions of dollars an
nually.
Strangely, enough, preliminary
studies have shown that it is more
expensive for the employer than for
the employe when the experienced
workman is ill at home.
The foundation estimates there
are 15,000,000 persons employed in
heavy industry and that the annual
average loss due to sickness and in
jury is eight days plus for men and
12 days plus for women.
On the basis, assuming that all
15,000,000 workers are men, “sick
absenteeism" would cost heavy in
dustry about 3900,000,000 annually.

House And Home
Who can utter a sweeter word
than that one syllable—Home.
Its four letters are the Gospels
in the story of human exper
ience. It suggests the glow of
the hearth, the prattle of chil
dren, the romance of youth, the
activity of daily duty, the inci
dents of family discipline.
The real home must have a
place, a habitation, not merely
for sojourning, but as a perma
nent dwelling. This doubtless is
the objective of the recent
movement on behalf of better
housing. It is to be hoped that
better equipped houses will
look toward a higher degree of
culture; that modern conveni
ences will lead to contentment;
and sanitation toward sound
ness of mind. In short the be
lief is that external improve
ments ought to develop internal
efficiency and happiness; al
though the normal process is
the reserve. However there may
be refinement and contentment
in a hut. The writer observed
this frequently while pioneering
on the plains and in the forests
of the Pacific northwest. On the
contrary many a palatial resi
dence may conceal some grin
ning family skeletons. The gla
mourous Hollywood boasts of
quite a procession. The study
of biography tells us that
many of the world’s greatest
characters have been reared in
poverty-stricken homes and sur
vived other hardships.
Quite reasonably our homes
should serve as shelter against
inclement weather, as refector
ies to replenish bodily nourish
ment, as dormitories for rest at
night, and as havens for protec
tion. But is that their sole ob
jective? Do not the fowls of the
air and the beasts of the field
enjoy the came conveniences?
Indeed they are their own build
ers. As creatures who are to
inherit the earth I ween that
man’s home life has a higher
purpose. The home should be a
temple wherein dwells the
sacred trinity of father, mother
and child. It should have an al
tar in one corner for daily
prayer. It should be a school
for teaching the first lessons in
clean speech, moral conduct,
good manners and sacred know
ledge, It should be a hospital
for the kindly ministrations of -
mother’s voice in times of
trouble and perplexity. It should
be a playhouse for wholesome
recreation which in these times
seems to be divorced from the
home. All outside teachers stand
in the place of the parent.
Such homes are consecrate,
constructive. They are the holy
sacraments of the social order,
to conserv, the integrity of the
church and the nation. These
are the two human interests
that preserve mankind from
dissolution. We may well ask
in these times what has con
served the integrity of the Jew
ish nation which has survived
the mutations of time, the
wreck of empires, and the dis
solution due to universal disper
sion. Since the days of t h e
Caesars they have enjoyed no
lebensraum. The answer is—
their God and their homes. As
cit ons of a great Democratic
Republic we boast a high de
gree of freedom. Let us use it
in making the best of life, in
tolerance and kindness toward
others, and in a devout account
ability to the Geat Artificer who
is reserving a house in t h e
heavens not made with hands.
The finest fabric of God on
earth is the home. While we can
let us make the best of it.
