THE TENDER SHEPHERD He shall feed his flock like u shepherd; he shall gather the lambs with his arm. and carry them in his bosom.— Isaiah 10 11. “ j CONCEPTION INADEQUATE I’crliaps the chief explanation as to why the employment campaign moves no fattei. here or elsewhere, is tha* these with jobs have an inadequate conception of the actual plight of those who have no work to do and can get none. The idea has nek been forcefully enough driven home in the minds of the more fortunate of our people and they are prone sometimes to wonder what i*. la all about. But those whose bank account has been entirely depleted, whose coal bin is empty and whose woodpile haa van ished; whose pantry Is bare. whose clothe* are threadbare, and who must walk the streets without work or lan guish at home in meditation on what the future means and what It holds In store; and for whom nearly every thing is a black wall, with wife and children suffering for the bare neces sities of life those fellows know what »♦ is all about. Moot of us arc too willing to “let George do It"; to pass the buck, or to surmise that it wilt aM work out somehow and nobody be the worse for the experience. That kind of an atti tude on the par* of those who could help if they would is a destructive out look upon life. It contributes nothing but misery to the plight <xf a nation and its unfortunates in a time like the present. There must be a realization that the helpless man Is helpless; that there is ntk a great de.tl he can do to bring about better times and better cond*- t.uns. unless he is first given a hand by those who stand above him. To furnish an hour's work or a day's work is better, far better than nothing at all. It will provide a meal or two and ease the pangs of hunger for a season. And every one who can do so should lose no opportunity to do that. But a bigger objective is to : furnish the unemployed man with t job that ts permanent. That wil'i give him a more hopeful Rant upon life. It win restore his confidence in humanity and encourage him to plug along with a greater enthusiasm an; s largei determination, and will nr only make him sc if-supporting bv will put. him in position soon to be of atwwtance to others less fortunate. We know from experience the dis Acuities that are being grappled with by those who are being called upon i to furnish jobs, and the utter impos sibility there is for some to contribute in this undertak.ng But is it not a fact, too. that there are many who can put Idle men to work but are not do lug 0O? To give one's complete cooperation In the present undertaking is no leas a patriotic duty than the service rendered by civilians and soldiers In the day* of the World War. Who doe* no* remember the term "Pack er” that was commonly applied to the drones back in those times? It was considered a privilege and an honor to fall In line then. But let us not forget that we are today fighting a arsr against depression a war which If different, is certainly no leas real, than the one that was wagud In Northern France in 1917 and 1918. Let us not forget, either .that those who fell or refuse to give their all In iMitm" and eervioe are just as much slackers today as were those of a decade and a half ago. Let us look upon this situation as one ot great seriousness. It la no ohttd’s play, nor to It a problem alone for those who are direct sufferers. It la a matter that should command the earnest cooperation of every Ame rican citlaen to the utmost of his abil ity. There la a contribution all of ua can make. Thai being so. can we oall ourselves burning patriots If we fall our country' tn (these ttmee? THE SALES TAX REACTION Defeat of Che sales tax program in the national House of Representative* Thursday was another instance where what at one time appeared to be cer tain victory was later turned into a decisive defeat. And what was be hind anl beneath the reversal of the coarse of that piece of revenue leg islation? Perhaps the biggest inspiration that fired the opponents of the sales tax proposal was a conviction that here was an effort to saddle the Mttle man with the extra burden of government and let the rich man escape. It is worth remembering that, even though the sales tax wns brought out by a Democratic commifeee, It had the backing of an administration that has acquired the reputation of working for big busiuess and for the richer element. It Is hard u> think of taking half or two-third s of a man's income, no matter how large it may be. in the way of a tax levy. It does tend to destroy initiative, ambition and hard work. It would be a poor policy if a permanent one but there is the no tion that what is being undertaken now is a temporary program to bridge across a temporary condition. For that reason all of us must make sac rtfStes. It is infinitely less of a '.rardship on a man with an income of a million or IKe million dottars to have to pay sixty percent of it to the government in taxes than on the man with an income of one or two thou sand dollars a year and a family to support, who has to pay 4en or twenty cellars in taxes. Only two courses are left open to Congress n ow bv way of balancing the national budget. Expenditures must be cut still further or else the wealthy people must pay larger taxes. It Is for the legislators to decide the course they will pursue. There is another angle to what hap pened In Congress yesterday. That is the respect in which it will affect legislation in the 1963 North Carolina General Assembly. year ago a sales tax failed by only a small margin. Next yeir it will raise its serpent head again, and with at least an even chance of success. Will North Caro lina congressmen who opposed the sales tax in the House yesterday raise their voice to keep It down when it becomes an issue again in their native State? Will North Carolina legisla tors be responsive to the rising tide of revulsion against a sales tax that caused ks defeat in Washington? It Is obnoxious and objectionable from almost every angle, and should never be Imposed except as a tart. resort. There will be a reaction to events in the House Thursday. It ought to be of such proportions as to impress the legislature in this State that p sales tax is not wanted, either in Washington or in North Carolina. It is becoming more and more true tnat seas uo not mviae. nut unite, countries.

C.J DAILY DISPATCH- SATURDAY, MARCH 26, 1982 * 210 HIGH SCHOOLS ENTER IN DEBATES \ Will Be .Held Throughout State Next Friday In Elimination* Chapel Hill March 26—Report* which have been received at the cen tral office here of the High School Debating Union of North Carolina in dicate that the stage is set for the twentieth annual Merles of triangular debates which will be held in 2120 participating high schools throu&v out the State on April 1. The query which wiH be dtooussed in ail of the debates is: Resolved, That the United States should adopt a system of compulsory unemploy ment Insurance. The schools winning both sides in the triangular contents will send their teams to ,Chapel Hil 1 to compete on April 14 and 15 In Anal contest for the Aycock Memorial Cup, the trophy donated by ihe intercollegiate debaters of the University. The yquthful North Carolina, de baters have nrule an intensive study, extending over the past several months, of the entire field of compul sory unemployment insurance in their spring contests this year. The triangles which have been ar ranged for the debating contest were announced today by Secretary E. R. Rankin, including the foDowing: Franklinton, Louisburg. and Oxford; BBethel Hill. Middle-burg, and Zeb Vance. Roanoke Rapids-, Scoftlfand Neck, and Tarboro. Bunn Edward Best, and Eureka; Aurelian Springs, Ben venue, and Leggett. SALES TAX DEFEAT TO REBOUND HERE (Continued from Page One.) turns again toward a luxury tax or a selected commodity tax that will put a tax on cigarettes and tobacco, the tobacco companies will, of course, fight this, just as they did in the 1931 legislature. But when the move is started for a general sales tax in 1933—in fact, the movement is already being started by certain candidates for the 1933 Gen eral Assembly—more people are go ing to know just what a sales tax means than they did In 1931. They will remember the fight made on it in Congress, that it was proposed by a Republican president and for the most part supported by Republicans, and that it was defeated by the Demo crats. They will remember the fight made upon it by Doughton, Lambeth and the other congressmen from North Carolina and wonder why a sales tax should be a good thing for a Democratic State, though a bad thing for the nation as a whole, ac cording to opinion in political circles here. It is pointed out that even Josephus Daniels has come out in bit ter opposition to the national sales tax .though an ardent sales tax ad vocate for the State In 1931. RAIL SLEUTH CONVICTED OF BHOOTNG SMALL GIRL Asheville, March 28. Jim Ledford, special agent of the South Railway, yesterday was convicted in superior court for assaulting Bobby Porter. 2-year-old Negro girl, with a deady weapon. Ledford was charged with shooting the girl with a shotgun when he de tected her picking up coal on the railway yards several days ago. l|®t Cab j j \ m Ovotl ~3>-» 1- / \ No jjo / > ■S4IV* 4.35H0 ‘SHOVl'd®?
