VICTORY IN SIGHT Victory is so near trrat it is in sight in the campaign to sell enough stock to reopen the First National Bunk But there is enough yet open to ac c •man* dar r a number of citizens who ought to help. Many of those who have subscribed in this undertaking have doue so at a personal sacrifice and for the reason that they fell they were doing a community service by their act. which nvoert. certainly they have done A meeting is to be iteld on Monday nigtH of the committee that is now active In soliciting shock for the re organized bank, and indication are that that will be morn or less of a jubilee occasion, when it ovaY 'be an nounced that the required $120,000 is pledged and will within a reasonable period of time be paid in as required for the re-establlshment of the hank in the community^ But no one khould suppose that' this ts premature rejoicing. The re maining amount of money that Is to be subscribed mufet be had and white there ts every rcato>n to believe K wvll meet certainly be provided, it relieves no one who can help and who has not yet done so of the community ob ligation This is a business proposi tion. but at the same time it is one of the finest pieces of omanunity work Henderson has ever undertaken. The solicitors are still active in the **ie of stock, and opportunity will be available on Monday for those who would hke to have a part of the small amount yet outstanding. Aside from the service to the city and county that is being rendered In this work, there is the equally important and desirable feature that it ls a good investment. When the bank is opened for busineas again, it will be one of the cleanest fi nancial instttutions to be found any where. and will be on a sound and solid basis, according to those wtvo are on the Inside and are wHJ acquainted with the* work that is being put across Victory is in sight. and the return of a better feeling and a better spirit in the community is i n prospect as the result. , JM, THE POPF/S CHALLENGE The pope of Rome has taken the lead in calling the world to prayer to save itself, as he says, from “the peril of terrorism and anarchy," and “the ■till greater evils that are threaten ing * lie did not mention the "still greater eviß.' but only a sweep of the imagination is necessary to bring them within the focus. For weeks and months references have been frequent in the secular press to the need for universal prayer and reliance upon an infinite God to lift the people out of the abyss into which they have dropped But lead ers of the Protestant churches in this country have failed to fall in line to the extent of taking definite action to that end ft was left for the pope to summon the world to its knees iu humility and supphoattoi. for divine guidance They criticize me pope, but leave it to him to take the ..ad in this universe crisis. if we ere on * verge of a moral re lapse it Appears pot Vj bu evufinea to the underworld entirety. As dread ful as it la to contemplate, it is never theism true that signs of a weakening are not lacking on many store High and kxw and in between, and in many parts of the world. Since the Protestant church has fail ed to take the lead, will It at this late date recognize conditions that exist and be wilting to totkvw the pope's ad monition? It does qoI matter eo much in th*e emergency by wtoooe Influence humanity is sobered and brought to its senses The big thing is that something ahaU be done. Political and economic experts have rocked their brains to find away out of present difficulties Apparently they do not know whdoh way to turn. Finite ingenuity is unable to offer a solution of prestAng problems Only the Infinite is left. Men have not turned there, but they will and must or accept the consequences. Is there enough faith left in divin ity to drop anchor there? Does the Christian world trust sufficiently in the God a professes lo follow to be be able to look to him in the.-** times? The Church faces the ohallenge. It has told the world through the ages i hat It has the heating bairn for all aliments, but it is not in this day giv ing a practical demonstration of the faith it has offered to others. A day of prayer, a week of prayer, universal in its scope, or even country wide in only this land, under guidance of Christian forces, if entered into wholeheartedly and with an implicit confidence in the Power upon which it relies, will suffice lo work wonders It would, under such circumstances, bring a transformation in the hearts and minds of men, else it would dem onstrate its own barrenness. TT»e venture could do no harm, and cer tainly it could not be adjudged wholly unavailing without first being put to the teat. I*ope Pius has taken the initiative. Protestantism will do itself no hurt by falling in line with the idea. But from some source within its own ranks must issue the call. The world waits for an a mover to the challenge. FIVE YEARS AGO TODAY It was exactly five years ago this alternoo n on both the day of the month and of the week, that Charles A. Lindbergh, then virtually an un known air mail pilot, set his little silver plane. The Spirit of Jit. Louts '. < >wn on Le Bourget Field in Paris, after a non-rtop flight of approxi mately 3,600 mile® in about 33 hours from New York City. His feat set the world aflame in enthusiasm. He was acclaimed by the mobs and masses of the people and by the crowned heads of Europe, and his triumphant return to America was the signal for a spon laneous demonstration everywhere such as no returning war hero has ever received. , | £| Tthe flight perched tfie modest youth on the peak of the ladder of fartt 1 ® and paved the way for'a fortune that gnepr almoj*. overmgtu into six and seven figure*. It gave him ac ce»e to <Arclee that hitherto had not been open lo him and men and wo men scrambled for even a glimpse of che boy from the air mail routes of the went. Contrast that happy home-coming of the horo with his sorrow and that of his countrymen today. Just five years ago he had achieved an epoch and was stepping from star to star in popularity and acclaim. He still held* that affection of the public Rut that very prominence has con tributed to the anguish and mlsewy of the last three months that have been visited upon him and his wife, heiress to one of the nation's great fortune*. During the five years he has become rich, has been married, and hk) 2<>-montha-old Infant son has been stolen and murdered. What a contrast—five years ago this day- and today. BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS Lovers of the beautiful, and of flow ers in particular, owe a debt of grat itude to the ladles of the Henderson Garden Club for the marvelous dis play set up In their second annua.! flower show, held yesterday afternoon and evening in the First Methodist dhuroh basement As in other lines of endeavor, improvement from ex perience wrs achieved In thie under taking. too. and It was bigger and bet ter than the first one last spring. That mind is warped and twisted in deed that cannot appreciate the beau ty that is In flowers. Though mute, yet they speak, and what a message they bring to those who have the soul to hear! He who loves these silent creations of brilliance and loveliness cannot but vision the maker of the flower By the fine art of painting and printing and the blending of col ors, man has made a wonderfully fine job of ImMating the original, but still he cannot attain the perfection put into just a little flower by the master hand. To love ftowem ■» to return to na ture. To get back i« nature is to lit*, the still small voice, and to re ceive inspiration and courage. It is a rtxmiuKi that though man Uu>j act HENDERSON, (N. C.J DAILY DISPATCH. SATURDAY?A Y 21, 1932 T '' see the divine, he is, after all, face to face with the Infinite when he gazes into a beautiful flower. There is something richer and deeper In this culture and this affection than the mere digging in the earth. It ls an evidence of the beauty that can come from unsightly soil, just as brilliance of character springs from man's own imperfections. The ladies have wrought wonder fully well In offering the community the annual flower show. By the large attendance they had. they must know the appreciation that is felt for their el\>Hs. It will be a fine service if they will continue the Idea. jUI *( james^aswelH* By Contra!

CANDIDATES FIRING UPON EACH OTHER (Continued rrom rage One.) agree that Maxwell has made some surprising gains during the past two weeks and that he still seems to be gaining. It is admitted also that Ehringhaus continues to make sub stantial gains and that he seems to be retaining the lead generally con ceded to him. But few believe that he oan get a majority over both Max well and Fountain. Maxwell, in Invading the eastern part of the State this week for the first time in his campaign, had been making a clear bid for support to the Fountain followers, according to op inion here, In that he has almost re frained from mentioning Fountain at all and has centered his attack almost entirely upon Ehringhaus. In his ; speeches this week In Wilmington. I and last night in New Bern, Max | well made vigorous reply to Ehring haus charges of vacillation and in consistency. • r "Mr. Ehringhaus wants to know why I have not put into effect my policy of reduced spending, inasmuch as I have held an important State office for a number of years." Max well said last night in his speech in New Bern. “Mr. Ehringhaus is not as fresh and unsophisticated as he would appear to he in the role he has assumed in this campaign as a country lawyer and grower of po tatoes. Mr. Ehringhaus knows that I have been stressing the necessity for less extravagant spending of public money. He knows that I have risked my official head to champion this course when it was politically dan gerous to do so and that the prin cipal reason I am a candidate for governor today i« that I know from experience that important reforms in State government can be accomplish ed only through the power and pres tige of the governors office, with supporting sentiment from the peo ple to sustain it That ia the reason 1 am going to the people with these issues. "Mr. Ehringhaus complains further that he iB also an advocate of econo my and that is true. But he is so involved in obligations and definite pledges to the machine and to groups of tax spenders that he would be ut terly helpless to carry out any policy of economy if he really desired to do so." But Ehringhaus haa been taking just as many pot shots at Maxwell aa Maxwell has been taking at him. and has been aiming these at what he has termed "Maxwell's meanderings."

STEWART, Baaknipt. j In hia speeches this week in Raleigh j and Wilmington and last night in Lumberton Ehringhaus referred io the active part which Dr. Fred M<»r rlson. secretary of the Tax Commis sion. of which Maxwell is chairman, is Maxwell's campaign, and refened to Morrison as Maxwell's "alter ego. chief adviser, and ghost writer, who. by the way, is about the only man in North Carolina who thinks land is not excessively taxed.” He also referred to "a number of other representative* of the Department of Revenue who are travelling about the State at Slut* expense” giving attention to MaxwelVr campaign. Touching upon Maxwells declared opposition to the "shert hallni.” Ehringhaus said. “Was It not at Mr Maxwell’s insistence that his present great office of enmmisaioncr of re venue was made appointive rather than elective before he would accept it? And is it not in accord with po litical history to suggest that to Mi Maxwell ‘the appointive route' has spelled life, while the elective route hak spelled political death to his am bit ion?" OTHERS’ VIEWS . REGRETS To rhe Edit ot We have received much comment on the fact that we had our school paper printed in Oxford. N. C. Since doing this we have had much cause for re gre( and are frank to admit it. There have bpen several things to which we will not take the time to mention here, bul w*e will say.
