Carolina had a pop ulation of fifteen or twenty million people, with untold ivealth ta .draw ' upon, it would bo impossibly to fin ' anee the building of permanent r,oads in every section of the state. ' Under any present , prog-rani there ".still would bi": thousand of mi'.? cf dirt roads to maintain. But the stute ;'i3 able, if the legislature is so dis- posed, to build many thousands of t V'-ril-siirfiu-e roads on nif.in highways, leaving to the counties the task of providing secondary -and ter tiary roads- These could be of sand clay construction. A h'ard-surface road from Stats-v villi to Hickory by way of Newton ' and Conover, a simil.ir road from H.iskory to Boone by way of Lenoir and probably from Ilickcry to Ta. lorsville would be of inestimable ' .benefit to this entire section. The roads would s-rve these communities well. And as Mr. Duke said in Raleigh the other day they would make wes tern North Carolina the playground ' of the eastern seaboard. That is something for farmers and others to think over tluse bad winter days and to cause them to make up their minds whether they want great er oportunities for their section and .themselves during the n:-xt 20 years. STATE PROGRESS The Record trusts that it will never be unmindful of the duties the state owss to the unfortunate in North Carolina and it trusts the day will come when no member of society is neglected, but it can not help but feel that the state owes a much greater duty to thosa children who were brought into the world with sound minds and bodies. Only by affording the best opportunities for the mentally and physically scu"d can -the state, in the last analysis, hepe to reduce the number of de pendents in our institutions of char ity. Tfcat is as real as it is apparent. Ignorance is probably the cause of most of the distress in the land; it is at the bottom of most of it in North Carolina. The Record is able to en thuse over any program which promises the maximum of opportun ity for the young people of North Carolina. Governor Morrison is theoretically sound in his position that the coun ties should be charged with the main tenance of their roads, but he ought to be sure that his position is based on fact- Unfortunately there is much politics in the land, especially in close counties, 'and too often politics takes up more time than good works. The state might well hold the coun ties responsible for road upkeep and it will require a lot of persuas ion to keep them busy all seasons of the year. t CHURCHES St. Andrew's Lutheran R.

With the snow cf Wednesday and Thur&dtsy clinging to the ground, birds and other forms of .wild life are sorely put to it to gather food to prevent starvation. The heavy snow -is still on the ground and is jikely ten remain there for several jays. Btrds in town are flying close to houses in search, of food and thoughtful parsons are throwing small grain and bread crumbs where they can be reached. The birds that are living hardest, however are the partridges in the country iand many of them are likely to starve or freeze unless the weather changes soon. Some farmers are placng feed in so.cae places for them- DIAM"OND GRID MOVES TO WATSON'S GARAGE The Diamond Grid Battery Com pany, -vhich formerly operated at tihe corner of Main and Thirteenth streets, has been moved to the show room of the WJatson Motor Company building, where Mr. George Starnes is doing his work.

WORKING FOR ALL The most critical psriod in Hick ory's history prol:ab'y ii the "year just now "well started. There are hundreds of younger business men ready to lend themselv es 'to the task of making this a great er community in all essential -pai'-ticulars, and all they need is leader ship. There are scores of older business men, who have served the city long end faithfully, who 'arc ready to fcend again to the task if they were assured of the right amount of eo oneration. Never acrain ran the fe.A- be expected to shoulder the burden of city building. The Chamber of Commerce ought to be a medium through which com munity interests of this city are cx- , ' pressed and executed,: i i If all the people cduld bcmade 'o 1( Tork as enerptfcaljy for the g;oo"d le put to work in campaign years for political parties, we would Jo things- v , Is there no way of putting all thi3 food energy to community purpose? DOING GOOD WORK One of the finest talk3 ever heard here was made by Mr- J. W; Hen dricks, county agent in discussing 'the work of the boys and girls poul try clubs in the county. That Oatavv ba was the only county in the state ,,'ablo to show a carload of birds at vtwo or more fairs, that half of the birds sent to the New York exposi tion came from this county and that the boys and girls are winning first premiums and making money by raising pure bred chickens were mat ters that caused pride in iachievement These boys and girls have toiled long to accomplish big results, but they have succeeded, and Mr. Hen dricks told a hundred business men about it Thursday night. His talk will not only result in an ex- tension of the good work, but will be the means of enabling him and his club members to receive cooperation and backing when they ask for it. i m The peopb of North Carolina should insist on fair election laws, the secret ballot and the application of the educational test. All are right. There is no sense in so much pre judice being aroused every campaign and if appeals to the illiterate were vain, mere would be more construc tive politics in North Carolina and i real desire on the part of thous ands at least to learn to read and Writ.
