I The Rook Of Knowledge (Department: — Animal Life) THE HORSE DOMESTICATED FOR WAR AND PEACE We do not know when ancient men first made friends with horses. For a long time men hunted them for food; in one place in Europe which was in habited by men of the Stone Age, bones of thousands of horses have been found. Much of the meat used by the poorer people of Europe is still that of horses. It is not hard to imagine how the first horse was tamed. Some ancient man may have trapped - foal with its mother or a young colt that could be easily tamed. Probably it was some time after this that peoples in central Asia taught horses to draw carts. Then they were hitched to war chariots Around 2000 B.C., horses were used to draw chariots in Mesopotamia and Egypt. The Assyrian horses were of the European or Asia tic type, with heavy heads, while those of the Egyptians were of the lighter, more beau tiful type, which probably de veloped in northern Africa. Horses were not ridden at first, nor were they tamed for use as early as donkeys. Per haps men learned first that they could ride donkeys, then they tried the swifter, more powerful horse. This knowledge spread throughout the world wherever horses were found, to China and Britain and through North Africa. Once horses were used in bat tle to draw chariots and to carry riders, it was found that a tribe with horses could conquer peoples without such an advan tage. The Greeks had both cav alry and chariots, and by the time the Romans brought the known world under their rule, horses were possessions of all the peoples of Europe and Asia. When Julius Caesar landed in Britain he found the Britons— horse, foot and chariot — array ed against his landing. These horses of the British Isles had most probably been brought across the Channel wnen tne the Celtic people came. Al though horses had reached Eng land during the Ice Age. when the isles were connected with the continent, they had later been exterminated. It was only about two thousand years ago that the Arabian tribes got horses, pro bably from Egypt. They throve in Arabia and when, about 630 A.D. the Arabian tribes set out on their career of conquest, they were mounted on swift hardy horses far superior to those of their enemies. Thus they were able to sweep through North Africa, the Middle East and Spain. Not until they met the heavily armored cavalry of the French, under Charles Mar tel. were they stopped. The Arab horses were care fully selected and cherished b'’ their owners. Many modern Arabian horses have pedigrees sisted by the Rev. John Long of Wilmington, and the Rev. C. T. Rogers of Rose Hill, officiating. Interment will follow in the Charity cemetery. Mrs. Murphy is survived by four daughters, Mrs. Della Bal lard, Mrs. Annie Moore, Mrs. O. H. Estes, all of Wallace, and Mrs. N. Warren of Rutherford ton; three sons, D. T. Murphy, Wallace; A. D. and V. W. of the home; 14 grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

It requires skill and nerve to stick to a bucking broncho. Thoroughbred horses rounding the turn on the homestretch at Belmont Park, New York. going back to the days of Mo hammed the Prophet. Horses were members of the family, fed on the best food the Arab ians could supply. They were and are, splendid creatures, in telligent and docile, with great powers of endurance. Arab poets often sang of their horses. The Arabs did not want to sell their prized horses, especially the better ones, but about 1700 several were taken to England. From these the famous English racers, hunters and carriage horses have been derived. Am erican race horses are mostly but some 'Arab horses were brought to America direct from Arabia. The horses that were taken to America by the Spaniards were partly of Arab stock, though the blood was mixed with that of coarser breeds. Thus it was that horses came back to the land of their beginmngs. So Tie wild horses in Afnerica today show the characteristics of the Arab steed, but most are poor er animals, often quite ugly in appearance.

Taken From Life The Lions clubs at Southport, | Wallace and Burgaw and the Civitan club at Chadbourn have accepted the invitation of the Ogden Civic club to send their presidents and secretaries to a meeting at Ogden Tuesday, November 18, at 7:00 p. m. for the purpose of organizing a South eastern North Carolina Civic congress. E. W. Johnson, the Ogden secretary, is writing oth er clubs as fast as he can ob tain the addresses. At the first anniversary din ner of the Chadbourn Civitan club, John E. Courtney, Civitan lieutenant governor, paid warm tribute to the purpose of the proposed Southeastern North Carolina Civic congress and pre dicted it would develop into a welcome power and influence in the further development of the region. Courtney said that the fact that the Ogden Civic club is an independent organization is to be interpreted as a chal lenge and that, in all probabi lity, the next time we visit the Ogden Civic Club we will find it transformed into the Ogden Ci vitan Club. We replied that we would not be surprised because the president of the Ogden Ci vic Club, Jack Stanley, told us he had a brother-in-law in the Chadbourn Civitan club. G. W. Spayd, a leading blue berry grower, whose farm is lo cated at Montague is now going in on a rather big scale for Porto Rican sweet potatoes grown from certified seed. He says the potatoes must be good because they have converted his wife, who was somewhat prejudiced against sweet pota toes. She now serves them re gularly at her own table. A fine spontaneous tribute was that paid Rich, the chairman of the newly formed Pender county Boy Scout district, when, at the organization meeting in the Bur gaw courthouse, every man pre sent spoke up emphatically say ing Rich was the best possible man for the chairmanship. It was an outstanding collective praise of the work of Rich for the development of his county. We were much interested in the comment of Superintendent H. M. Roland that the main ''ause for a smaller enrollment in the 12th grade is poor home environment, often a broken home. It has been noticeable in the past several years that a growing number of homes seek to shift the responsibility for the children to the school. The finest school in the world cannot be a satisfactory substitute for the home in the rearing of children, as superintendent Roland stresses, unless the school is supported and aided by the home, children will continue to drop out of school be fore completing the 12th grade. II is gratifying to note that the pre centage of drop outs which was running as high as 88 per cent in other cities does not exceed 40 per cent in Wilmington. That is high praise both for the schools and the homes of Wil mington. , While opinion among educa tors differs as to the distribution of grades into elementary schools, junior high schools and senior high schools, personally we believe the city school sys tem 25 years from now will be of the 6-4-4 plan with six grades in the elementary school, four grades in the junior high and four grades in the senior high, The deciding factors will be the time when departmentalization of studies should be introduced, the preparatory value of a jun ior high for a senior high and oi a senior high for college and the astonishing differences in study and recreation and social atti tudes of age groups. This pre diction is conditioned on the jun ior high and the senior high be ing adjacent or close to each other so that athletic fields, lab oratory equipment, work shops and the like may be used in common, and that in some courses teachers may be inter changeable. At present opinions in educational circles divide about 50-50 on the advisability of a junior high. f/Wy Head Feels 1 I FINE Now! I NAVY PERSONNEL TO BE ENTERTAINED BY CITY-COUNTY The New Hanover county Board of Commissioners voted Monday morning to join the city council in underwriting the cost of entertaining navy personnel in the city associated with the three day celebration of Navy Day con cluding on October'27.
