Welcome Awaits Hoover , North Carolina would be highly honored if J. Edgar Hoover should ac cept the state Sheriffs Association in vitation to address the organization’s convention at Carolina Beach in August. Mr. Hoover heads the world’s great est crime detection bureau—the Fed eral Bureau of Investigation. His friends will tell you that the FBI has attained its preeminent position because of his vision and executive and organ zational ability. Certainly he has had a conspicuous part in its development and success. 1 Mr. Hoover has found time to visit other communities and conventions, giv ing audiences composed for the most part of law enforcement officers, the benefit of his experience and advice, always with signal benefit to his hear ers. The Star is pleased to have this Opportunity to add its invitation to that of the Sheriffs Association. Voluntary Enlistments 1 The House of Representatives last \Veek took a step to encourage volun tary enlistment in the Army. The bill 4 passed extends indefinitely the Army’s enlistment age of seventeen years, and further permits original en listments for two, three, four, five and sSx years, wdth re-enlistments up to six years for soldiers previously enlisted for shorter terms. Non-commissioned offi cers could re-enlist for unspecified terms and receive a $5 bonus at the end of each year of their term. : With the state of the world what it is there is obvious reason to recruit our military strength, preferably on a voluntary basis. And with the employ ment situation what it is the Army of fers young men excellent means of pro viding for their future, especially as education is a special inducement for recruits. i The boys who enter the Army have great advantages. They may receive expert training in trades, in arts and sciences ,that a few years ago could be obtained only at technological schools, so that when they re-enter civilian life they are fitted to fill positions demand ing great skill. • Nor is the opportunity for foreign travel to be overlooked. Recruits as signed to duty as replacements in United States occupied zones enjoy an additional educational advantage, the broadening experience of contact with the peoples of other lands. ^ would b* well for the country in deed if the recruiting stimulant afford ed by this legislation of the House re sulted in building up the Army to the required strength and so eliminated the movement for compulsory military training. Air Line Neutrality Best Wilmington needs better air ser vice. We can never hope to get it by participating in any dispute between competing airlines. Only by charting a neutral course and leaving the decision to the Civil Aeronautics Board may the community secure the service it de serves. This was made clear yesterday morn ing during the joint meeting of the City Council and the Board of County Commissioners, when Commissioner James Hall, in moving that the two ; governing bodies maintain a hands-off policy in the controversy between State Air Lines and Piedmont Aviation, re marked that the CAB was best situat ed to judge the merits of the case and the matter should be left in its hands. Mr. Hall’s motion received majority support, and there the discussions should have ended. Particularly should it have ended i there as Henry Boyd, manager of the jWilmington Port Traffic Association, | who drafted State’s petition for rehear | ing, testified that signing the protest I would be contrary to the city’s oral ap peal earlier before the CAB that ‘\\ il mington wanted air service, but no par ticular airline was desired.” When the City Council went into ex ecutive session after the County Board members had retired, and ordered City Attorney William B. Campbell to re vamp State's petition for a rehearing, which contained an admittedly offen sive paragraph, with the purpose of making it acceptable to CAB, it doubled back on the track covered in the pre ceding discussion and in effect turned a sympathetic ear toward State Air Lines, although no conclusive action was taken. The instructions given Mr. Campbell were to soften the offense of the original petition and submit his revised version for the Council’s later consideration. If we sense the attitude of the CAB ! correctly it wdll view any alteration in Air Line’s brief as anticlimatic, inas much as the offense had been commit ted and in addition Piedmont was al ready certified to serve Wilmington. What, then, must the CAB think of the City Council w’hich professes to want more and better air sendee but raises a question against the line au thorized to provide it? It is fortunate the Council did not openly endorse State out of hand but proposes to devote further study to the air line’s claim for preference if a rehearing is granted by CAB. Hope fully it will still decide its widest policy is complete neutrality. Turns Pedagogue General Eisenhower will become president of Columbia university after all. When the matter was first discuss ed in the press he stated, in effect, that he would not leave his present post as Chief of Staff this year and that when he retired from the Army he wanted to enter some work closely allied with public service of non-political na ture. He is now fulfilling the first part of his statement by postponing his mili tary retirement until 1948, but not the second as Columbia is no more free from politics than any other of our leading universities. That he will be sorely missed by the Army is indisputable, but we recall that Cincinnatus forsook his plow to return to his soldiers in an emergency. We may be sure that the Supreme Comman der on the Western Front in World War II would not be slow in slipping out of his cap and gown, donning his famous “Eisenhower coat” and resum ing his military .career if need should arise. Up To Truman Now President Truman lost his fight against the Taft-Hartley labor control bill. There is but one course open to him now. He ought to issue a public statement declaring that the Congress, having overriden his veto, has made the meas ure the law of the land, and as the Chief Executive he recognizes his responsi bility to see that it is enforced to the full limit of his authority. By this means he would improve his posi'ion before the country and regain much of the public esteem he lost by his stubborn attempt to kill thia vital legislation. As Pegler Sees It by WESTBROOK PEGLER (Copyright by King Features Syndicate. Inc.) NEW YORK, June 24 — the Oriental re ligions or philosophies in which Henry Wal lace and some other political fire-walkers of the Roosevelt administration did some mess ing-around on the sly are not, as some of us may think, just harmless nonsense, like tea cup’ reading a-nd tricks with coins and a plug hat. When a fellow with an Oriental makeup and the manner of a carnival fortune teller can make a blithering clown of a member of the Cabinet of a President of the United States and obtain from him credentials for a prowl through parts of Asia where mischief was not just an occurrence but a major in dustry. that is serious business. At this point, let me point out that Henry Wallace has never denied his association with Nicholas Roerich or any of the testimony in vaiious litigations which depicted Roerich as an Orientalist, a practitioner of magic, such as automatic writing, a deity and a candidate for a position which Louis L. Horch, of the Department of Commerce, described' as “head” of Siberia. At this point, I invite Wallace to deny any part of this, and threaten to prove all this and much more on him if he should dare. In fact, much of it has been proved already and more will be proved be yond any question in a short time and I snail undertake to put other powerful personalities of the new deal into association with the same general circle. Many or our proiessionai pouuuaiu «ic taught early in the game never to deny any thing. Wallace, however, has been presented to us as a man superior to the sordid profes sional of our politics. The truth about Henry is. however, that he plays the game accord ing to the profession: 1 rules, using deception, evasion and guile as well as the best ol them |.evet did and still mouthes moist phrases about spirituality which nevertheless deXy for mulation. They seem to conform to Christi anity. but still his religion or faith is elusive. He speaks of some spiritual emanation o' mankind. He is no more to br grasped than a wisp of fog and so his press-agents of the Washington corps, mentally lazy or incompe tent for their mission, have tagged him a mvstic. which is a trademark word resorted to by slovenly writers for the same reason that the same kind use "glamorous” to de scribe either a moonlit' night or some cal loused old night-club tramp. Wallace has had many opportunities to for mulate and expound his religion. If he has one. but we find mere sentences and inklings scattered through his writings and do not know who his god is. The devotees of some of the Oriental philosophies hold that there is no god, but that there is a great moral force and thflt they worship or try to prac tice principles. Some of the cults literally do respect Christ as a superior person, in fact a master, but only one of many and some of them hold that the great masters are still in the Himalayas, aloof and not yet ready to reveal themselves. There is also a sug ges'ion that some of these supernatural beings in human form already have come among us and are going about ordinary busipess day by day with us, outwardly unrecognizable. We are going to be surprised when they unmask and the “mystical” publicity about Henry Wallace is worth clipping and filing in this connection. To the devotee, communism would be only a phase of manking’s experience on the way ?o some higher plane and the ultimate per fect;on Wallace in one expression, perhaps unguarded, spoke of things that he might do if he were to live a thousand years. He reemed to be resigned to the idea that he would not be spared to carry out the work he had in mind, but not all the members of the cults give up so easily. He may have mental reservations himself, or plans to hang around and haunt us. Our sort of government and the western civilization are based on the Ten Command ments. Our basic unit of society is the fam ily. There is. however, no reason why the prophet of a new society, a new civilization and a new economy should accept this deca log. “Thou shalt nol steal" can be repudiated, obliterated from the morality of the world as a false precept put over on Henry Wallace’s common man to save him the expense of hiring policemen to guard his private prop erty Some societies have got along without marriage and there would be a strong politi cal appeal in the program of a preacher of a:. Oriental philosophy who should say to the rabble that there was nothing but prejudice and superstition to forbid plurality in mar riage or total promiscuity. The trend to li centiousness has been seen in every circle of the communist movement in the United States and Ben Gitiow, who formerly was chief of the party here, frankly confessed that the communists had exploited this as an appeal to youth. The master, the mahatma of guru of the new faith, might be a celibate, above temp tations of the flesh, but such a society would give him a lot of votes. The task of the revolution is to create doubt and then disruption to destroy the west ern civilization. Wallace himself may be in tellectually unequal to the forces that might use him to accomplish the total revolution. He certainly was not a strong man when he permitted himself to became a dupe of Nicho las Roerich, and again I tell you that if he dafes to deny that he was a dupe I will prove ■ t on him. I think it is a terrible mistake of so rrwuiy Americans, and I do not know how man^tn accept the flat assurance so often writtenrfer Wallace’s press-agents that he is an honest man. * If he were honest and not a sneak he never wpuld have suffered his Department of Agriculture to denounce Roerich, with a cow ardly insinuation that he had been suspected of espionage in Asia, just when Roerich’s fi nancial interests were under vital litigation in court in New York. The insinuation was cowardly because Wallace ran and hid and Aould not back it up. He was a sneak to conceal from the people of the United States he fact that Roerich took him in completely with his Chinese beard and squinty eyes, and p^'’Jaded Wa]lace to send him to Asia on an official expedition of the American govern ment when Roerich already had expressed a desire to become “head” of Siberia, If he were honest he would step to the edge of the platform today, explain his association witn Roerich and accept the political conse quences of hi* own *illy gullibility.

Now we come to some colonies larther south. When Charles was restored to his throne in 1660, some of his friends asked him for a grant of land in America. Charles was hap py to be able to reward his faith ful friends so easily, and in 1663, he granted to eight lords proprie tors a piece of land south of Vir ginia. This was called Carolina. The proprietors published adver tisements for settlers, offering land on easy terms. A number of persons took up land in Carolina, but they did not pay much atten tion to the proprietors. If they liked the looks of some land on which no other white person was living, they settled on it without Indiana performing a ceremonial dance for Gen. James Oglethorpe, founder of Georgia. Along with the colonization of Georgia he made peace with the Indians and opened up trade with them. i ' asKea anyone s consent or paying any rent. Settlers from Virginia occupied the coast next to that colony. An other settlement was soon made near the present site of Charles ton, South Carolina. This grew faster than any in the northern parts of the province, and. finally, in 1691, the province was divided into North Carolina, Albemarle and Charleston. Most of tne governors whom the proprietors sent out were not fit to rule. Twenty in all were sent out to the northern province, and the people forced six of them to leave. Once, for two years, North Carolina had no governor or ruler of any kind. Many French Huguenots and seme Germans and Swiss came over. Before they were entirely settled, the whole northern prov ince was attacked by the Tusca rora Indians, and for four years there were many battles. The pro prietors would not send aid, and for a time it semed that the col ony could not survive. But at last the Indians were driven away en tirely. The people were so tired of the proprietors that they asked the King to take over the government of the colony. This he did in 1729, Bobby Sox Politics By PETER EDSON WASHINGTON, The capital has just been treated to visits from a couple of youth delegations—with a capital Y. The difference be tween capital Y Youth and small y youth is more than you’d think. Small y youth comes here in a bus to take snap-shots of itself on the Capitol steps, gawk through the White House, 'ake in the other sights, buy a few soft drinks and hamburgers, pair off for day-light handholding, then get in the bus and go back where they came from. It’s fun. Capital Y Youth, however, comes here with a pur pose. The two Youth-With-a-Purpose outfits that- showed up here were as different as day and night—as different as Youth and youth. One was the national encamp ment of 4-H clubs, 183 strong—at least two boys, two girls and a couple of 4-H leaders from every state and territory. All were country or rural town youngsters. The other outfit was the National Youth Lobby, 449 strong, from only 16 states and mostly big city and university youngsters. It s a pity somebody didn t think of getting these two groups to gether. It might have ended in a riot, but it would have been worth the experiment. The Youth Lobby was sallow as to complexion, a little on the frow sy side but awfully sophisticated, awfully cocky, and with a high disdain for things -as they are. They knew all the answers in ad vance. The 4-H youngsters were healthy as all outdoors, clean and neat, a little on the /shy side and awful ly practical. The boys had raised livestock or done other farm pro jects. The girls were specialists in home economics. They were brought. here as prize winning leaders among rural young people in their states. The 4-H club members came here to listen and learn. They heard talks from cabinet members and other government officials. They saw congressional agricultur al committees in action. Then they had discussion croups If the talks v-ere on the hea/v and dull side, the disci-; sions when the kids tore ‘em apart were not. Near the end at their week’s program the 39 members of tb^ 4H group who ,iad reached voting age took the pledge of good citi zenship on the steps of the Jeffer son Memorial. They’ll make good citizens all right, and no doubt about it. In contrast the Youth Lobby came down here to tell Congress bow to run things, according to their liberal and decidedly left wing notions. Some of the con gressmen apparently listened po litely. Other congressmen told their youthful constituents to go on back home and quit (bothering them. Some shoved the lobbyists off on their secretaries. These youngsters came away bitter and disgusted. What kind of citizens they’ll make, gosh only knows. Both the Republican and Demo cratic Party organizations have tried to make something out of their young auxiliaries, without tr-' much success. The Young Republicans, which has 800,000 members, just held their biennial eonvention in Mil waukee. with 450 delegates from every state except Louisiana and Mississippi. The Young Democrats claim only 400,000 members now. but have started a drive to get a mil lion members by September. The Young Democrats will hold their biennial convention later in the summer, at a place and time to be selected by the National Com mute. Both the Young Republican and Young Democratic organizations are used to develop party leaders and workers who will get out the vote on election days. Such effort is all to the good. The only trouble is that there isn’t enough of it. - In many foreign countries it’s the students who take the leader ship in political reform move ments. That’s because they form the one largest element of literate, thinking people. They usually get shot up and down for their trouble, but in the U. S. it isn’t necessary tc pay that penalty. All the more reason to get the bobby sox set interested in politics and off on the right foot. It ill behooves any old codger to scof! at Youth -That -Takes -Itself -Seri ously. It was Youth that won the war and Youth that figured out how to make the bomb. It’s going to be their world in a few years. Y’hat do they want out of it? paying each of the proprietors about $12,000 for his share and dividing the colony into North and South Carolina. Just about this time, the last southern colony was begun. At that time in England, a man could be put in prison for debt. He would be kept there until some how the debt was paid. This, of course, meant that many unfor tunate people spent,years in pris on. General James Oglesthorpe. a brave soldier and a member of Parliament, asked the King to give him some land in America to which he might take some of these men. so that they might be gin life anew. In 1733, Oglethorpe brought 114 settlers to his new colony, which had been named Georgia in honor of King George II. Many other settlers came be sides the debtors, but the colony was not a success at first. As had happened so often before, many of the colonists were not suited to the life and the work of build ing a colony, and the English trustes had made plans for its development which were too elab orate to be carried out successful ly. In 1752, the King took over the government of the colony him self, and later on it began to flour ish.
