THE NEW ERA, EUNICE, LA. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1941 Gen. Fleming Asks Selective Service Men To Co-Operate Gives Reasons Why Registrants Should Cooperate With Local Board - SUNK WITHOUT TRACE THE NEW ERA A TriParish Newspaper Published by The New Era Publishing Company, Incorporated Official Journal of the Towns of Eunice, Melville and Krotz Springs HOWARD D. STROTHER, Managing Editor M. V. STROTHER, Editor Entered in the Post Office at Eunice, La., as secona class matter November 29, 1919. ONE YEAR $2.00 Defeat Constitutes a Christian America The pro-Nazis in the United States often use the slogan, "a Christian America." But when one examines their newspapers and the speeches which they make, he discovers that these people are not interested in either Christianity or Democracy. In the name of Christ they preach racial and religious hatred against non-Christians, and in the name of America they propose that this country exists only for those who, according to their definition, are Christian. Now, when did Christ teach us to hate our neighbors? When did He admonish us to persecute others? When did He say that Christians should attack and vilify and lie about other people who were not Christians? Never. There is nothing in the Gospels about that. Nothing about Christ having taught Christians to hate non-Christians, and to stir up trouble for them, and to deprive them of their rights. But there is plenty in the Gospels about the life of Christ; about howT His birth wTas announced by angels who sang, "Peace on earth, good will toward men"; about how7 He healed the sick, and fed the hungry, and forgave the sinful ; how He taught men to love one another and to forgive and to serve one another. That is Christianity. Give us more of that kind of Christianity. Give us the Christianity which shows us how to live together in peace, cooperation, and good will. Give us the Christianity which makesus insist upon justice for others as well as ourselves. Give us the Christianity which makes America safe for non-Christians and Christians alike. Give us the Christianity of Christ ; then we should have a democracy indeed. None would live in fear none in want. Arise, Christians! Speak boldly to them: We know what Christianity is and we know what democracy is. We know that it is the law of Christ and the law of America that freedom in this country is not for Christians only. It is for all others in this land, too, who have the same inalienable rights that Christians have. Baptist Message. Free Press and Free Enterprise The free press, said Grove Patterson, editor of the Toledo Blade, recently, "is the major defense that can keep one man or one group of men from stealing a government and operating it in the interest of a privileged few. The newspaper, not only because of its information service, not only because of its analysis of national policies, but because of its advertising service, is vital to the economic health and well-being of this country. "Business deserves to be immeasurably more free from the bureaucratic regulation than it is. No medium is in such good position, so well equipped, as the newspapers to preach and to teach the value of free enterprise." A free press exists only where free enterprise exists. In the total state, the newspaper is of necessity the voice of the clique in power. It dances to the dictator's song. It spreads lies and advances corruption in high places. It is used for the selfish ends of the few not for the service of the. many. Here in the United States the free press has done a magnificent job in building and perpetuating the democratic, free enterprise system. It was the newspapers of America, small no less than large, which encouraged private industry. Our electric power development, oil production, coal, and metal mining, and a thousand and one varieties of enterprise have had the aid of a free press, to the great benefit of the public. And this same free press has been the first to ferret out and publicize graft whenever it appeared in industry or in government. Socialism would mean the destruction of the free press, precisely as it ,would mean the destruction of free enterprise in all fields, because it necessitates a dictated press and a dictated industry. As President Roosevelt has said, a free press "must be maintained against all costs." And the only way it can be maintained is to preserve and protect the free enterprise system which gives it life. What Is a Neutral? Edward Alexander Parsons, Louisiana delegate to the "Continental Congress for Freedom" recently held in Washington, D. C, under the auspices of the Fight for Freedom Committee, received a prolonged ovation when he arose before the "Congress" to give the following description of a neutral: "When we boast so much of neutrality, we seem to think that neutrality is a high and wonderful attitude, whereas, as a matter of fact, there is no such thing as pure neutrality and if there was it would not be worthy of much praise. In everything in life we are either for it or against it more or less and, therefore, that shows that we are neutral about nothing. It was Dr. Johnson's wish that "no part of life be spent in a state of neutrality or indifference." The Greeks passed a law against it. Dante had a particular place in his Hell for the hypocrites and the neutrals. "What is a neutral? "Indeed, a neutral is one who is neither high nor low, rich nor poor, positive nor negative, good nor evil, male nor female a neutral is nothing!" THE GIRL'S CASE PAUL C. YOUNG Phychologry Department, LSU Louisiana Farm, Marketing And Livestock News (By B. B. Jones, Agricultural Secretary N. O. Chamber Of Commerce) More Cattle Needed During 1942, Louisiana is expected to market and use on the farms of the state approximately 183,500,000 pounds of cattle and calves. This amount is approximately 20,000,000 pounds greater than the amount marketed and slaughtered in 1940. As a part of the improvement program in the beef cattle industry, it is expected that at least two thousand additional purebred bulls will be added to the amount now in use in Louisiana and that the number of steers being fed on Louisiana farms will be doubled in the coming year. Supplies of cattle in the nation are ample, but in Louisiana they fall short of the number of head needed to supply - all of the local markets. Prices have .been favorable for the development of the -cattle industry and there is wide spread interest in the state in the breeding and feeding of more high quality cattle. Good Year for Vegetable Growers The demand for vegetables next year is expected to increase and producers are being urged to enlarge their plantings of various crops about 5 per cent. Higher prices and income from the production of vegetable crops are expected in 1942 because consumer purchasing power is at a high average leveL This means that the farm income for thousands of Louisiana farmers producing vegetable crops should be higher as a result of this improvement in the vegetable industry. Farm Exports At Low Level Farm exports for the 1940-41 year were the lowest in 69 years according to government reports. For only the second time on record, agricultural exports were exceeded in value by imports of farm products similar to those grown in the United States. While - farm exports averaged about one-third of the total exports for a number of years they dropped to only 9 per cent of the total exports during this past year. The fall in cotton exports accounted for over 70 per cent of the total decline. The extent of the decline of agricultural exports this past year is shown iby the fact that the total shipments sank about 50 per cent below the low level : experienced during the depression. The declining foreign markets for some products have not 'been noticed so much because of the greatly increased demand for domestic consumption. However, when domestic consumption begins to fall off, the need for exporting many products will become very evident. Storage Stocks Are Longer Storage stocks of dairy, poultry, and meat products were higher on the first of this month than they were one year ago. Holdings of butter in the nation totaled 202 million pounds this year and 150 million pounds a year ago. The total holdings of frozen and case eggs amounted to 10,500,000 cases this year and 9,700,000 cases in 1940. Supplies of frozen poultry totaled 96 millions pounds the first of this month as compared with 91 million pounds last year. Supplies of frozen and cured meats equaled 443 pounds on October 1st, as compared with 369 million pounds "the same date one year ago. Although storage supplies are larger this year there is a greater consuming demand prevailing in the central markets. If a father is a father in fact and not only in name, he will be much interested in his son's coming into manhood without fear and shame in regard to his sexual constitution. As the boy matures sexually there are changes in his body that he should understand. These signs of maturity are so natural that they occur in all normal boys. Instead of feeling ashamed of the signs of growth, the son should be so taught as to expect them and to accept them as normal. Otherwise the boy will tbe frightened by other boys" tall stories about "lost manhood," "going crazy," etc. In the same way a mother, who herself feels "right" about her own sex attitudes can prepare her daughter for the physiological changes that come with puberty. Fear is a poor basis for teaching either physiology or morality. Children are at best curious and anxious about their bodily changes. If, besides, they are frightened half out of their wits by wild stores of sex dangers, they will have just so much more to overcome. If to the child's natural fears are added the parent's fears and anxieties, the child's wholesome sex life may foe made much more difficult. Since the girl's sex urges are less obvious than the boy's, she has all the more need to understand herself in this respect. The U. S. Children's Bureau Publication No. 225, "Guiding the Adolescent," deals in detail with the girl's need for maternal instruction. The rest of this article is a direct quotation from that source. She has a right to know that her days of excessive irritability or restlessness or emotional instability are due, not to the minor annoyances of everyday life which would ordinarily not upset her, not to any inherent disagreeableness or crossness, but to the physiological tension which is a part of every mature and normal woman's sex life. Once they are recognized, she can learn to relieve her feelings of pent-up emotion and energy by entering into suitable activities. Instead of battling blindly with something she does not understand, she wiU te able to seek deliberately for a satisfactory means of expression. Her outlet may be in tennis, or swimming, or cleaning he porches, or mowing the lawn; she may crave doing something physically strenuous and should be helped to find it; or she may have need for a purely emotional "outlet and may find it best in music, in dramatics, or in writing. When she finds a satisfactory outlet, she should be allowed to make the most of it, regardless of how skillful she may be. It is more important that she finds an enjoyable and helpful means of expression than that she become a good performer. As time goes on, she will find new outlets; simple, happy companionship with a group of young people, engrossing work, intensive study, and service for others will help her to satisfy her growing emotional and physical tension until she is ready to enter into a mature sex relationship and assume the responsibilities of wifehood and motherhood." ental Cream Mrs. C.

Important personal reasons why a Selective Service registrant should cooperate closely with his local board were stressed today in a statement by Brigadier General Raj-monci H. Fleming, State Director of Selective Service. General Fleming pointed out tr.at the registrant's full cooperation with his local board not on"y expedites the operation of the Selective Service System, but also directly benefits him. "The importance of the registrant keeping in touch with his local board and immediately notifying it when he changes his address is obvious." he said. "The registrant who fails in this not only violates the law and places himself in needless jeopardy of fine or imprisonment, or both, but also does himself an injustice and causes the local 'board much unnecessary trouble." General Fleming also emphasized the fact that registrants can save both themselves and their local boards much inconvenience and possible grief by exercising care in filling out the questionnaire for classification. Every local board has an advisory board," he said, "and the registrant who is in doubt as to how to answer any given question should consult this board and follow its instructions. That's what the advisory board is for." Any registrant who believes he has been placed in the wrong classification and wants to make an appeal, the General pointed out, has at his service the Government appeal agent attached to his local board. This Government appeal agent is charged with the duty of protecting the interests of the registrant, as well as those of the Government, and the duty to assist in making his appeal.
