TOP O' THE MORNING : Carelessness in the things of the soul pre - pares the icay for the tempter. When ice neglect prayer and Bible study and public worship, we may not see any immediate results. But they are there. Our spiritual powers begin to atro phy; our defenses against temptation to disin ' tegrate; our wills to become weakened. Thus when temptation comes we are not prepared to resist it as we should. . . . Spiritual cataslro phies seldom come suddenly. Usually they are the culmination of a long process of which we have hardly been aware. . . . How necessary to heed the admonition of the Word: “Pvt on the whole armor of God, that yc may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil . . . and having done all tq stand. —McElroy MORE THAN THIS NEEDED Apparently some 50-odd Americans believe that some good purpose can he served by offer ing a reward of one million dollars for the de livery of Auolf Hitler “alive, unwounded and unhurt” into the custody of the League of Na • tions so that he' may be tried for his crime against the world. In a letter to the Nero York Timr-s, the presi dent of Carnegie Institute, Samuel Harden Church, has announced he is authorized to pay that sum of money to anyone who can fulfill this modest assignment. The offer is to stand good through the month of May. Otherwise there are no strings to it. Coming from such a source, naturally, it must be taken at face value. Mr. Church has no illusions about the pos sibilities of success in any such enterprise. He even points out that Hitler would have to be taken to London, rather than Geneva, because the German array would wipe out Switzerland if the fuehrer were a prisoner there. But he ex plains that he held back from his announce ment for some time not because he doubled the feasibility of the plan but because he doubted that it would “strike the imagination of the world.” / There, of course, lies the key to this remark able suggestion. It is really propaganda that we are dealing with. The chance of kidnaping Hitler is so minute as to be practically non existent, and Mr. Church and those he speaks for realize it fully. Their real purpose is to re mind us what a nice world it would be if there were some cheap and easy way of making Hit ler answer for their deeds. On this point there is no argument. But Mr. Church’s offer, we are afraid, only confuses the problem of attaining permanent peace by oversimplifying it. We shall have to do more than bring the Hitlers to book before we can right this sad oid world. / i PRESS ON SENATOR SIMMONS FOLLOWING the customary pattern, when a leader passes, North Carolina editors have focused their attention upon Senator Simmons revolt against the Al Smith candidacy, in their comments on his career and his death at New Bern last week. There is not complete agreement among them as to the causes and the consequences of his position then, but all are in accord as to his sincerity which, they agree, was above reproach. As the Asheville Times puts it: “ . . . though many of his former friends could not go along with him in 1928, no one ever assailed Senator Simmons' sincerity, his devotion to what he be lieved best for his party and the nation. To the same purpose and, by inference, to the same incident, the Burlington Times says: “That the eastern North Carolinian with more than 30 years in the national legislative bodies made mistakes is certain, in statesmanship and politics as well, but these were far outweighed by his allegiance to the democratic party and his service to the nation, even to the world. ’ Going more deeply into the matter, the Greens boro News has this to say: As for the final break between Senator Simmons and the party to which he gave such full measure of his devotion through out the years, there will probably be abid ing disagreement. On the one hand, there is the sincerity of Senator Simmons’ con victions; on the other are purely political motives designed to rebuild the machine which had already cracked under the Gard ner impact and the senator’s failure to guess the reaction, after the first favorable action which sent North Carolina into the republican column, which eventually brought his downfall. More recent claims to vindication of his anti-Smith stand must be weighed against the consideration that Governor Smith, when he sought the presi dential nomination, stood at that particu lar time for what Franklin D. Roosevelt, whom the senator embraced, later came to stand for. The other newspaper in Greensboro, the Record, declares: “Senator Simmons—whether right or wrong in the crucial decision he made in 1928, possessed the courage of his convic tions. He will long be remembered for his con structive contributions to the state, and also for his career as a dominant political factor.” And the Durham Herald'. "He capped off a long and more or less turbulent political career by show ing that he knew how to take defeat. Senator Simmons, we are persuaded, leaves a more praiseworthy resord than he would have had he held his tongue in 192S and lingered in the senate.” Sizing up the senator’s influence on public affairs, the Asheville Times finds, “He had been UUtlUCOUl/UaulJ LlIC, utot U1UUIO LUO uvutv democratic organization which 40 years ago swept the republicans and the fusionist allies from power in North Carolina. But it was his work in Washington as a student of taxation and tariff, as well as a senate leader, which increased his stature and a political figure whose influence was everywhere acknowledged.” A rather exhaustive review in the Charlotte Observer says of his career: It will ever remain a conspicuous phase of the political history of North Carolina that at the turn of the present century there rose to prominence and power this giant of the east who for a service of 30 years in the United States senate, and for an equal period in the destiny of the com manding political party of North Carolina magnetized national attention as well as personal supremacy in his own state. It was during this bracket of his public life that Senator Simmons dictated the destiny of the democratic party of North Carolina. ROOSEVELT’S CHALLENGE President Roosevelt's challenge to aspirants for public office seeking to retire the New Deal to offer a definite program of their own, in stead of merely criticizing that of the adminis tration, is timely. Addressing women of the South from the portico of the White House, the Chief Executive told potential standard bearers of the opposition to “quit condemning each and every act of this administration and tell us just how you would change the laws if you were in power.” Nothing of this sort has been done to date. The men campaigning under the republic ban ner have spent their time condemning the New Deal vociferously, but not one has proposed a program of his own providing a cure for the ills they allege the New Deal has brought about. As elections are not won this way, the reflec tion is that until the republicans mend their ways, improve their approach for favor, they are merely strengthening the New Deal’s posi tion and contributing to its chances of success in November; which cannot fail to be accept able to the democratic leadership and the par ty membership. There is no reason to suppose that the Presi dent’s challenge will be taken up. NORWAY SURRENDERS _ Perhaps history tells of a greater fiasco than Great Britain’s expedition to Norway, but it docs not come readily to mind. Not even Na poleox’b retreat from Moscow was worse. Without a single telling blow struck by land forces, Allied troops—and they were chiefly British—are called home, leaving the little na tion London swore to protect and save from Hitleb occupied by the invaders and suing for peace. Mr. Chamberlain, the British premier, will be taxed beyond even his talent for excuses to explain awpy his failure, the more pitiable in light of his early boast that Norway had noth ing to fear once his soldiers took the field. The inevitable conclusion is that Britain has suffered in Scandinavia a greater defeat than if her armies had been routed in actual battle. It is all right to say that new threats in the Mediterranean area hastened the withdrawal, that the Germans had become so well en trenched and extended their lines so quickly with such efficient and well equipped men that the Allies could not get a foothold in time to stop them, that this or that circumstance made it necessary to call off the Norwegian cam paign except at Narvik; but no amount of ex plaining can down the fact that Britain turned tail and ran away under fire, or undo the evil of that act. ( The Norwegian failure, however, probably I will have one good effect: the downfall of the 1 Chamberlain government. The Manchester 1 Guardian, commenting on the premier’s weak ness, says: “Chamberlain’s capacity for self delusion is a national danger.” If this view is adopted in high places and supported by the chagrined, baffled and disillusioned people of England, there is little reason to doubt that a new prime minister will soon undertake to win the war Mr. Chamberlain has done so much to lose. When such a change takes place, as it should, and promptly, there may be a re birth of confidence in Allied power to stop Hitler. But it will take that, and a quick reshaping of strategy and war policies, to re-establish the Allied cause in the good will and sympathy of the neutrals, from whom the Allies must draw moral support and favorable trade and credit decisions. Bruce Catton's 'In Washington' Star-News Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, May 4.—Col. Philip Fleming, wage-hour administrator, faces his biggest test in the weeks just ahead. So far he has been popular with both friends and foes of the wage-hour law—with its friends because he is an able administrator and has things clicking and with its foes because he listens to reason and doesn’t talk big about cracking down on people. The honeymoon is over now, though, and two sets of public hearings will presently show how much reason the colonel is willing to listen to—and what, having listened, he is game to do about it. The wage-hour law gives the administrator lots of pow er. It exempts executives and professionals and then lets the administrator say who is included in those cate gories: it also exempts pack ers and canners of fruits and vegetables who work “in the area of production,” and lets the administrator say what mai expression means. * Existing definitions are Bruce Catton very tough; the public hearings have to do with demands that they be liberalized. Now going on are hearings about executives and professionals. Due to start early in May are the “area of production” hearings. Their importance is shown by the fact that, simply by changing these definitions, the col onel could take 720,000 food processing work ers and slightly fewer than 1,500,000 white col lar workers out from under the law. * * * Czech Minister Holds Legation For just about a year now Minister Vladimir Hurban of Czechoslovakia has been a man without a country. He is still keeping the Czech legation open and says he’ll do it as long as the U. S. continues to recognize his country— even if the war lasts 10 years. The Washington legation is one of four Czech legations still open; others are in Paris, Lon don and Egypt. As minister with no tangible country to rep resent, Hurban’s job now is unlike that of any other diplomat in Washington. It’s really a po litical job; he keeps in touch with leaders of the 1,750,000 Czechs in this country, arranges for passport extensions, tries to get refugees admitted, and so on. Practically no entertaining is done at the legation nowadays; with the home office lock ed up, cash is hard to come by. Mme. Hurban goes out in local society frequently; the minis ter, who is out of town a good deal, somewhat less so. * * * Probably No Sugar Laws This Season Because of FDR’s intervention, there prob ably won’t be any new sugar legislation at this session. A lot of bills had been introduced and practically all would have cut the Cuban quo ta heavily; FDR wanted to avert that, and wrote House Agriculture Chairman Jones sug gesting that congress simply pass a resolution continuing the existing quotas. That seems to be in the cards. There’ll be a fight, though, which may give FDR a hot po tato to handle. Sugar refiners want to add a clause limiting the quantities the offshore refineries may handle, and the President has indicated he’d veto any such notion. If they succeed in getting it he’ll either have to eat his words or make an awful lot of sug ar growers mad. Editorial Comments From Other Angles THE SILVER FOLLY New York Times If it passes the pending Townsend bill the senate will at last have moved to wipe out the worst and most foolish part of a fantastic piece of legislation. The new bill prohibits the Presi dent and the secretary of the treasury from ac quiring any more foreign silver under the Sil ver Purchase Act of 1934. That act provides that silver must be purchased until its mone tary value (at $1.29 an ounce) equals one-fourth of the total value of the country’s monetary gold and silver together. Despite the purchase of more than 2,200,000.000 ounces of silver since the act was passed, at a cost of more than $1,000,000,000, the inflow of gold has been so great that the goal set by the act is farther away than it was when the legislation was passed in June, 1934. Of the silver purchased, the overwhelming bulk has been foreign. In 1939, for example, nearly five times as much foreign as domestic silver was acquired by the treasury. The huge mountain of silver already acquired by the treasury, in fact, is equal to more than fifty years’ domestic production at the current rate. The committee report in favor of the Town send bill points out that the further purchase of foreign silver is without excuse; that it is wasteful of American resources; that it in volves bestowal of benefits abroad without con siderations of reciprocity; that there is no pros pect of fulfilling the “treadmill terms’’ of the Silver Purchase Act of 1934; that that act has failed to achieve any of the objects promised by its sponsors in 1934; and that “silver buying is not a proper instrument of foreign policy ” This country’s uninterrupted purchasing of , Mexican-produced silver since 1934, the com > In Hollywood By PAUL HARRISON NEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, May 4.—Short akes: The walk-out parade has >een growing in numbers and im >etus lately, with the three Ritz 3rothers scowling along at the head if it.

Howard stalked out of Warners the other day, leaving the Knute Rockne pic ture in the reluctant hands of the hastily-assigned Lloyd Bacon. Over a period of about 19 years, Howard has been a star boarder in the Hol lywood doghouse, having quit at least three pictures before this one Yet he’s admired for his somewhat painful sense of integrity and re spected for the fine films he has completed.

But the approaching presidential campaign will be of more interest to the movie industry than any previous political fracas.

The fruit sold during the day was it extra high quality throughout. Ihe sales peak is expected during the next week. The local marketing company will pe hosts at a free barbecue dinner it noon on Wednesday. mittee remarks, “has not produced in Mexico the results which might be expected from such purchases viewed as a good-neighbor effort.” As for the argument that purchase pf foreign silver should be contin ued because, by giving foreigners purchasing power, it makes jobs for American producers of export commodities, the committee de clares that if there were any valid ity in the argument “it would be a logical step to increase our buy ing price for silver five or ten fold, and thereby make five or ten times as many jobs for Americans.” The enactment of the Townsend pill would do nothing to end the indefensible provision which com pels our treasury to buy the total innual silver output of American mines at the fantastic price of 71 -ents an ounce. It would, more pver, leave a messy legislative sit uation under which the treasury would still be directed by an unre pealed act to move toward a goal he achievement of which the new ict would make practically im possible. But at least the worst and nost costly part of the silver folly would have come to an end A BANNER WITH A STRANGE DEVICE SCOUT NEWS BY JACK STILLMAN. OKLAHOMA CITY, May 4.—The National Council of the Boy Scouts of America will hold its 30th an nual meeting in Oklahoma City, Okla., Thursday and Friday, May 9 and 10. The host council is the Last Frontier Council. L. H. Mann is president A. P. Murray is Scout Commissioner and R. L. Billington is Scout Executive. Under their leadership an extensive program of welcome and entertainment is being developed. It wiell be the first national coun cil meeting held in Region Nine which comprises Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico. The designation of Oklahoma City by the National Executive board is in recognition of the unusually progressive work of Scouting in these states in 1939, it was announced by Dr. James E. West, Chief Scout Executive and Editor of “Boys’ Life,” who sent notification to the National Coun cil’s membership comprising Lo cal Council representatives, mem bers at large and honorary mem bers. In 1939, Region nine was first in the per cent of increase in total number of Boy Scout Troops and Cub Packs, with an increase of 16.6 per cent. It was also first in the per cent of increase in total Scouts, a gain of 13.9 per cent. It is expected that over 1,000 business men, educators, public of ficials, doctors, lawyers and churchmen—leaders in the life of their home communities—will at tend the two day sessions, drawn together by a common interest in America’s boyhood. The theme for the conclave is “Scouting— the American Way,” reflecting the democratic character of the move Walter W. Head of St. Louis, President of the Boy Scouts of America since 1926, will preside. The report of the National Court o Honor of which National Scout Commissioner Daniel Carter Bear is chairman, will honor the Scouts who heroically saved the lives of others. Dr. West, the Chief Scout Executive, will report on the ac complishments of 1939. Distinguished Speakers Dr. George W. Truitt, an out standing clergyman of the South will sneak on “America’s Call to Leaders of Youth.” Dr. Truitt has been pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas for 43 years and president of the Baptist World Alliance since 1934. He is a former president of the Southern Baptist convention. From Salt Lake City, Utah will come Dr. J. Reuben Clark, Jr., of the first presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to speak on "Loyal Citizen ship, Scouting’s Opportunity.” Dr. Clark is characterized not only as : a brilliant churchman but as an experienced statesman and lawyer as well. He served the Depart ment of State in several capacities. From 1930 to 1933 he was ambassa- \ dor to Mexico and in November, 1933, as a member of the United j States delegation, attended the sev , enth Pan-American Conference at ] Montevideo, Uruguay. Dr. Frank Porter Graham, presi- j dent of the University of North Carolina, will speak on “Building j an American.” Before becoming , the university’s president in June, ■ 1930, Dr. Graham had previous ex- ] perience as a lawyer and educator. \ He also has served as president of 1 the North Carolina Conference of j Social Service, president of the North Carolina Historical and Lit- i erary Society, and as a member \ of the United States Commission i to study the University of Puerto Ftieco as a possible inter-American University. The Most Rev. Francis C. Kell ey, Bishop of Oklahoma City and Tulsa, will speak at the National Council’s annual dinner. He has been chairman of the Catholic Youth Program in America. W. T. Rainey, National Repre sentative for Region six, is expect ed to represent the Cape Fear Area Council at this annual meet ing of the National Council. Meeting’s Two Functions There are two main features of the Boy Scouts’ National Council meetings. As the legislative meet ing the delegates representing the nation’s 540 local councils elect of ficers, approve new policies, re ceived the annual reports and dis cuss and act upon them. The Oklahoma City meeting will be an inspirational gathering. It will provide opportunities for dis cussing ways and mean's for pro moting the Scout program in home communities, advancing troops, exchanging ideas and further serv ing boys through scouting. The meeting will be held at the Skirvin Hotel, Thursday, M a y 9 through Friday. Si iver Buffalo Awards At the annual dinner of the Na tional Council, a highlight of the meeting will take place in the Sil ver Glade Room, May 9. Here Scouts from Oklahoma City and nearby local Scout councils will present demonstrations of the pro gram. A feature of the dinner will be the presentation of several Sil ver Buffalo Awards “for distin guished service to boyhood” of a national or international character In accordance with tradition, the uaiuCi3 ux uic leuipienis are not made known until they are an nounced at the National Council dinner. The distinguished recipients of this highest Scout honor of its kind include Presidents William Howard Taft, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt and also Col. Charles A. Lind bergh, Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Daniel Carter Beard, Booth rarkington, Hebert J. Grant, Nor man Rockwell, Dr. Ray Lyman Wilbur, Most Reverend Francis C. Kelley, John R. Mott, Frederick Russell Burnham, Amos Alonzo Stagg, the late Dr. John H. Finley, and the late Newton D. Baker. Scouts to Participate Plans are being made to conduct l training course for Scout leaders n “Troop Camping” at camp Singletary this summer. George L. Horton, leadership training chair nan of the council, will be in :harge of the program of instruc ;ion. This is to give leaders in Scout ng a course of study which will jring together ready knowledge on : t wide variety of subjects about lamping and hiking. A Scout doesn’t camp out in a :abin or bungalow, with hired : :hefs and a community dining i 'oom. He carries his house with ’ nm on the running board or under i he wagon seat; and sometimes on < iis back. He cooks his own food, i md if he wants furniture, he ; nakes it with an ax. 1 The instinct for returning to sim- i >licity is pretty strong in most of 1 !s, but we have come so far in our vay of civilization that few of us ®ow how to get back. This is for he folks who would like to join the r hg procession returning to their i 3\m!r'S k°use in the woods. I Where to go doesn’t matter so c nuch. Little journeys will often do t yell as long ones. The main thing 1 5 to cut loose from routine, get an t utterly new angle on the same .■! living. This way sometimes can be as well managed by a creek ban : over the next hill, as in the Can adian wilderness. But it one ha few weeks off and a little car, b may almost choose his own cann ing ground: let him try the moun tains this year, the lakes and liv ers next, and after that the Oil Salt itself. Which he will like best will depend on the nature of his temperament, but he will be the richer for all three. David L.
