JOSEPH IRONS
HORTON WITHDRAWS
W. P. Horton’s withdrawal from the guber
natorial nomination race clears the political
ikies and permits North Carolina to proceed
with its tremendously important part in the
national defense program without complica
tions by political factional battles.
By Mr. Horton’s gracious act, J. M. Brough
;;ion, leader in the recent primary election, be
comes the candidate of the democratic party
Un the November election without a run-off
vote. Because of the great democratic major
ity in the state, his election becomes a mere
formality.
North Carolinians, therefore, can now call
K political adjournment and concentrate on
matters which, because of the foreign war
situation, outweigh all others.
! The state treasury will be saved the fi
nancial drain of a second poll. The unrest
! and business disturbance that accompany poli
tical campaigns will be avoided. In the cir
cumstances, congratulations are no less due
to Mr. Hobton, for his wise decision, than to
Mr. Broughton, who will be North Carolina’s
next governor.
| THE PARIS AIR RAID
After many alarms during the eight preced
ing months of war, Paris, at the start of the
'ninth month, experiences its first air raid,
'with what damage and loss of life accom
panied it unannounced by a careful French
•ministry of information, which wisely wishes
io conceal from the enemy what its planes
», accomplished.
; Early dispatches are, as usual, fragmentary,
■but it appears that successive waves of Oer
'fnan bombers swept over the French capital
■raining tons of high explosives, which ended
15 lives. Many fires followed, great craters
were opened in streets and buildings shatter
Kd. One bomb, fortunately a dud, fell within
few, feet of the American embassador, Wil
Jliam C. Bullitt, while he was at lunch out
ride the embassy.
> The raid, presumably, is but the forerunner
bf others Hitler will launch with the inten
Jtion not only of doing what damage he can
to the city, with accompanying slaughter of
s -
non-combatants, but to spread terror among
the survivors with the hope of forcing an
early dictated and separate peace upon the
French government.
Now that the nazis have set the example,
what, we ask, is to prevent the Allied air
forces from retaliating with raids, as destruc
tive as possible, upon Berlin? It is not
pleasant to contemplate the shambles that
could thus be created, but it must be remem
bered that this is war, war to the death, the
Allies declare, and the sooner its anguish is
brought home to the German people, the soon
er may we expect them to understand that its
price is not to be imposed on one side only.
General Weygand has given proof that the
war has graduated from a defensive one on
the Allied side. He has demonstrated de
termination to carry the war to the enemy as
fast as he can assemble his forces for that
purpose. Well, the air raid on Paris seems
to afford him excellent opportunity to show
the benighted followers of Adolf Hitlek that
he is not without power to strike terrific
blows on Germany’s capital and force them to
see the equivalent of the devastation their
armies have wrought in other countries.
WILMINGTON'S OPPORTUNITY
1 V
'T'HE war in Europe has disrupted world
commerce. More and more mercantile
ships are going down daily. The loss has been
so great since hostilities started last Septem
ber that were the world suddenly restored to
pre-war conditions, and sea traffic carried on
as in the blessed era of unappreciated peace,
there would not be sufficient vessels to trans
port available cargoes. And the saddening re
flection is that before peace can come again
the losses in ships will have found a greater
and more distressing total.
It is not apparent that there are enough
ships left at this time to carry on essential
mercantile transport even among neutral na
tions. Some authorities declare that if no
more is done soon to replace vessels lost in
the war than is going forward at present
there will soon exist a new kind of blockade,
not enforced by belligerent navies but by iack
of bottoms. This may be an extremist view
point, but it at least lays the foundation for
the belief that existing shipyards will have
to speed up production and new ones be estab
lished at advantageous points to swell the na
tion’s merchant marine output, if there is to
be any ocean commerce at all.
Washington is not inclined to consider sub
sidizing shipyards or giving material help to
promoters of new ones. There is an opinion
in the capital that existing facilities are ad
equate. and that available national income
should be concentrated on production of
munitions, guns, warplanes and naval expan
sion. But it is indicated that a section of of
ficial opinion is gradually swinging to the
view that without a strong merchant marine
the defense of the realm, upon which we are so
conscientiously busy, will lack an essential
factor. The transfer of supplies is quite as
essential in a war emergency as transfer of
troops and guns, and as warplanes cannot be
used for transport without lessening their
availability in battle, and railways and high
ways cannot do the whole job, there must be
a large fleet of cargo ships to assure a good
With this change in view assuming more
hopeful proportions, it is obvious that the
United States will finally get around to doing
something about shipbuilding. When that
time comes, and long before, it will be advis
able for Wilmington to be at work for the re
opening of the old yards here or the creation
of new ones. By so doing, and by carrying
on a persistent, well organized and efficiently
conducted crusade, Wilmington’s able, if re
cently hesitant, leadership will find, among
other things, that by being on the ground,
with the city’s advantages in plain sight at
the moment of decision, it will get what it
goes after.
Plants of one sort or other are not settled
wholly by map study. Partly the decision is
determined by pinch-hitting applicants. Wil
mington must be among this group, display
ing its assets where the determining audience
will see them.
MORE MILITARY TRAINING
We in America have such confidence in our
ability to meet any emergency at the hour of
its arrival that we are likely to discount the
importance of preparation.
This is apparent, for example, in our
minimizing of military training for civilians.
State militias have been skeleton organiza
tions until recent years. Since the last World
war, to be sure, the government has insisted
on a stronger and better equipped national
guard, but at best in comparison with popula
tion and resources, it is still far below the
standard of European countries before the
present conflict. Yet it is a part of the
foundation of our national defense and an
important factor in any defense program.
Now, we are face to face with an emergency
which may or may not create a crisis, accord
ing to the outcome of the war in Europe.
Should the nazig triumph, we probably will
have to defend our shores against invasion.
It would not come the day after an armistice
in Europe, or perhaps the year after, or even
two or three year*. But it would come, even
tually, unless we made ourselves militarily
impregnable.
To do this, America will have need for
much stricter, far-reaching training for civil
ians. Not only will the national guard have
to be increased and given more intensive
training under conditions resembling those of
war as closely as possible, but boys of high
school and college age will have to become
integral 'parts of the nation’s military ma
chine on a larger scale than at present- ROTC
'X
}
units will have to be larger and existing units
be given more camp training, to make their
personnel thoroughly efficient.
Under present schedules prep school and
college ROTC groups are sent to camp only
during the summers of their junior and
senior years. Would it not be advantageous
to give them this training and experience dur
ing the freshman and sophomore years as
well? Surely it would make them better
soldiers.
And would it not be equally advantageous
to make ROTC training compulsory in all
high schools? We have not felt the need of
compulsory military training on the German
basis, largely because two wide oceans seemed
to make us immune to attack. But now we
know that no ocean is wide enough for that.
The airplane has conquered distance, and the
old security it afforded is but a memory, a
condition which makes it imperative that
every boy physically fit be trained in drill
and discipline to take up a military burden
which becomes more necessary every day that
German legions advance in France and Bel
gium.
North Carolina has been particularly re
miss in the organization of ROTC units. The
time has come for it to set aside its aversion
to enforced soldiering, and invite the govern
ment to create units in every high school.
PLANES FOR ALLIES
It must be apparent to the most casual
observer, as well as to the trained minds that
propose it, that to deliver our old planes to
the Allies in their great emergency is no less
to our advantage than to theirs.
We have, it appears, many warplanes which
could be of no value to us in any later crisis,
but which are still serviceable and could do
the Allies much good if delivered quickly. The
proposal, which has been laid before Presi
dent Roosevelt, is to return them to the
manufacturers who could rush them to
France and England and so get them into the
battle while there is still hope of defeating
Hitler.
The advantage to us in this arrangement
lies in the fact that whatever we can do to
stem the nazi tide in Europe will help to keep
that tide from sweeping this way. It will also
make possible speedier replacement of new,
more modern warplanes for our own use,
should they be needed, or for the Allies in
their continued resistance.
As the battle proceeds and reaches ever
larger areas in Europe the drain on airpower
increases. If the Allies are to hold up their
end successfully they must have more and
more planes, and our help in providing them
is indispensible. They are fighting our fight
as much as their own. Whatever we can do
to aid them, within the expanding limits of
our shaky neutrality, should be done. If old
planes are needed, especially the bombers
which are still effective, why quibble about
sending them?
The decision, of course, is up to Mr. Roose
velt. He is in the best position to arrive at
it. But it is difficult to see how he can op
pose the proposal.

BROWDER GUILTY OF TREASON?
Charlotte Observer
Ear] Browder, leader of the communist party
and Its nominee for the presidency of the Unit
ed States strikes us as being guilty of high
treason and self-condemned by some of the
statements made in his speech of acceptance
yesterday.
It is not foi us to say that he should be ar
rested, tried and convicted for treason against
the United States, alhough the minds of many
of the people of this country must have been
sparked into wondering after hearing how far
a subversive influence can go before it is crim
inally subversive, or how intelligent is the
American right of freedom when it is permitted
to go to the point of exercising "freedom to de
stroy freedom."
It is not, however, this which is in mind.
Browder Is clearly guilty of preaching doc
trine subversive of the Soviet philosophy which
he represents and which he will carry into his
campaign for the White House in demanding
that the United Slates have done with its pre
paredness program, and that, instead, it com
mit itself to the ways and habits of peace, let
ting “the two imperialistic powers of Europe”
fight it out among themselves.
That is his view and attitude as stated in his
speech of acceptance.
He is a militant pacifist, and, therefore trea
sonable to the philosophy of communism as in
carnated in its chief high priest of Moscow.
Stalin does not believe in letting the "two
imperialistic powers of Europe” fight it out
alone.
Indeed, he jumped into the fray himself after
collaboration with Hitler, sending his legions to
pounce upon and blast Finland off the map,
seizing the booty which was surrendered to the
impious and bloody hands of his armed forces
when they had beaten these free people Into an
enforced surrender.
If Stalin, therefore, the head of communism
in the world, is committed to war, is backing
Hitler now in his enterprise to subjugate the
continent of Europe to his imperial brutality,
how is it that Earl Browder, the representative
of Stalin and of the communist government of
Moscow can be so passionately committed to
the cause of pacifism and so rebellious against
the idea of the United States taking up arms
even for no more outrageous end than to keep
Itself from suffering the fate of other demo
cracies ?
What is this if it is not outright treason to
communism?

SCHOOL GARDEN CONTEST
Dear Sir:
Personally and in behalf of every
father and mother whose boy or
girl took part in the school garden
contest1940, I wish to publicly
extend to Mr. Carl Rehder and
Mr. R. B. Page my most sincere
thanks and deepest appreciation
for their untiring efforts in making
the school garden contest such a
wonderful success.
In addition to the cash prizes,
the trophys or cups presented to
the most successful contestant
each year by Mr. Page of The
Star-News jointly with Mr. Reh
der’s forethought and advice, have
no doubt encouraged our boys and
girls to have more and better gar
dens each year.
From a standpoint of knowledge
and experience I believe the les
sons learned in planting and grow
ing of vegetables and flowers in
the School Garden contest to be
vital factors in the future develop
ment both mentally and physically
of our boys and girls.
I am sure each boy and girl con
testant deeply appreciates the un
tiring efforts and interest shown
by both Mr. Rehder and Mr.
Page who have done so much to
make this work a success.
The lessons learned in the plant
ing and growth of different vege
tables and flowers learned in their
school work supplemented by prac
tical experience in their garden
work is a most constructive step.
I believe all boy and gill con
testants as they grow up in later
years will always cherish in their
•memories their experiences in the
school garden work.
I believe the cultivation of school
gardens has been a great help in
the growth and welfare of the youth
of our community.
In conclusion I believe Mr. Reh
der’s work is to be commended
I wish both Mr. Rehder and Mr.
Page and all contestants still great
er success in the Star-News School
Garden contest for 1941.
Sincerely yours.

Man About
Manhattan
By George Tucker
NEW YORK. June 3.—“You'd
think we were a couple of inter
lopers from Hollywood trying to
taunt the critics into a fury.”
It was a black Friday indeed for
Laurence Olivier. About him were
scattered the New York daily
newspapers. They carried sour re
views of his play, “Romeo and
Juliet,” which had opened on
Broadway the night before. The
front pages were flaming with
headlines — Britain threatened—
France invaded.
Mr. Olivier is an Englishman.
He is engaged to marry Miss
Vivien Leigh, the erstwhile Atlanta
Jezebel of “Gone With the Wind.”
Miss Leigh had opened in the play
with him in the role of Juliet.
The critics had hopped on this pro
duction, some of them savagely.
“They should have called it 'Lau
rence and Vivien’ instead of ‘Ro
meo and Juliet,”’ one critic wrote.
All this left Mr. Olivier slightly
stunned.
“Did any actor ever get worse
reviews, I wonder?”
He was assured many actors
had drawn worse reviews — Ray
mond Massey’s attempt at Ham
let, for instance.
* * *
In a way, this was a disappoint
ment to a great number of people
who aren’t even connected with the
theater. Miss Leigh made such a
nit in “Wind” and when her en
gagement to Olivier was announc
ed, the “Romeo and Juliet” idea
seemed a sort of lovers’ dream
come true.
But the reviewers, almost with
out exception, condemned the pro
duction. One critic suggested that
the only reason they decided to play
Shakespeare’s tragedy of the star
crossed lovers was because they
were in love themselves and were
trying to cash in on the public’s
well-known sympathy for people
who are in love.
Since it was Mr. Olivier who pro
duced the play and directed, most
of the brickbats were heaved into
his dressing room. They accused
him of mumbling his lines, of be
ing indistinct, and of prancing
around the stage in a sort of daze,
rhey said Miss Leigh was lovely
out that she was in no sense the
smouldering maid of 14th century
Italy that Juliet was supposed to
he. Juliet was 14, and there is an
old sacred cow of critical opinion
that says no actress can play the
role until she is forty.

• LOVE, COURTSHIP
AND MARRIAGE
Those Who Niss
Wedding Bells Can
Blame Themselves
BY ERNEST R. AND GLADYS S.
GROVES
Noted Authorities on Marriage
Relations
Those who look longingly at the
wedding bells that ring for others,
but not for them, have only them
selves to thank. Somewhere along
the road, they have taken one turn
after another leading to single, ra
ther than double, blessedness.
Some are very well satisfied with
their independent situation. Others
at times convince themselves that
they are in a sorry predicament.
This, however, may be just a bit
ot the play-acting that all of us
indulge in occassionally. casting
ourselves in the leading role, par
ticularly if it be a tragic one.
Those who seem “cut out for
marriage,” yet fail to achieve it,
are the ones who can do most
for themselves. They may have
been going on, year after year, in
the place, or job, or social group,
which they happen to have made
their own, regardless of the fact
that it holds out little hope of
their meeting any marriageable
person.
Some are too modest—perhaps
because over-proud, or afraid to
risk having their feelings hurt by
laying themselves open to ridicule
—to show themselves as they are,
and therefore hide the most in
teresting layers of their person
ality. Then they wonder why they
attract only mediocre, uninterest
ing people.
Those who are but a little less
shy feel at ease only with those
whom they think of as inferior.
A few are so self-conscious about
marriage, whether because they
are afraid of showing their eager
ness to attain it, or because they
nave been turned against the idea
of marrying perhaps by the im
print of the happenings of child
hood in a unhappy home), that
they make friends only with un
marrigeable or already married
people.
This is doubly risky, since, in
spite of their anti-marriage slant,
they may be swept off their feet
by an unexpected love for a mar
ried person. 2

HULLYWUUU, June 3.—"Wat
erloo Bridge.” Screenplay by
S. N. Behrman, Hans Rameau
and George Froeschel, from
play by Robert E. Sherwood.
Directed by Mervyn L:Roy.
Principals: Vivien Leigh, Rob
ert Taylor, Lucille Watson, Vir
ginia Field, Maria Ouspenska
ya, C. Aubrey Smith.
With sseveral pre-Scarlett movies
on the screen now, Miss Leigh of
fers in "Waterloo Bridge” a new
characterization to save her from
the stamp of "one-picture” star
dom. There is nothing of Scarlett,
though more than a tinge of scar
let, in her role of a sweet girl buf
feted by war’s cruelties. And she
brings appeal and dramatic con
viction to the assignment.
Besides proving again that the
academy award winner really can
act, the picture has other news in
Taylor — his most mature, best
handled part to date. Even without
the jaunty moustache he sports, he
would have managed, acting as he
does here, to be taken seriously.
Myra (Leigh) is a ballet dancer;
Roy (Taylor), a young army officer
about to leave for the front in
World War I. They meet in a
bomb shelter, plan to marry, but
are thwarted by a legal techni
cality. Having lost her job, Myra
with her friend Kitty (Field) is
unable to survive in war-disrupted
London; waiting to meet Roy’s
mother (Watson), she reads his
death notice in a newspaper; shock
and the effort to conceal the news
cause her to behave so rudely as
to estrange the mother, from whom
she might have expected help.
When desperate Kitty and Myra
have taken what they (with Hays’
office sanction) insist is not "the
easiest way,” Roy returns. Keep
ing her secret against her better
----
judgment, Myra consents to marry
him, goes with him to his country
home. There she is confronted by
so many evidences of his high fam
ily standards that she confesses to
the mother and insists upon fleeing.
By the time Roy has learned the
truth and is off in eager pursui'.
Myra has come to the end which
in the movies is always destined
for her type, regardless of extenu
ating circumstances.
It is a tragic tale, slow in getting
under way, but interesting a n d
moving for its performances and
central situation.

O’Brien is manager of a banana
company somewhere in the "torrid

the softer life of a Chicago office.
Just as Managing Editor Burns

plantation where trouble, in the
form of a revolutionary enterprise
fostered by the excellent character
actor, George Tobias, is at hand.
Miss Sheridan is the itinerant,
card-sharping cafe singer, hounded
by O’Brien and befriended — anc
more—by Cagney.
Cagney and O’Brien carry on a
Flagg-Quirt feud through the rapid
melodrama that ensues, and Annie
again shows that all the "oomph ’
is not on paper. “Torrid Zone is
good, fast stuff. Its “torrid" atmos
