Saturday Mornnig, November 12, 1938 YOU AND I--AND AMERICA In these difficult days it is refreshing and inspiring to read an article such as appears below and which bears the title, 'You and I--and America". Written by Hermann Hagedorn, distinguished author and poet for the November issue of BOYS LIFE, a magazine for nil boys published by the Boy Scouts of America it is a crystal-clear exposition of al the rights and privileges we Ameri cans enjoy under the Bill of Right: and the Constitution of the Unitet States. In our opinion it gives us by its utter simplicity and convincing sincerity a truer sense of the strength and splendor of the Great Republic --The Editor This America is only you and me, Its power, weapons, testimony, are you and me, Its crimes, lies, thefts, defection* are you and me... Past, present, future, ore you and me A great American, who greatly loved his country, Walt Whitman wrote those lines. The government industry, labor, the law, the books that are written, the movies that arc ma'de, are not something apart from you and me, he is saying. The things that go right in this democracy anc ' the things that go wrong are noi something outside of us. You and 1 are a part of the success and a part of the failure. We have a right to take pride in every politician or business-man who shows courage and a determination to serve others rather than himself; and we have reason to hang our heads for every selfish or crooked act. The splendor of America is our splendor, the shame of America is our ehame. Yours and mine! The poet is saying something more. He is saying that government or industry or crime or great achieve ment is not something abstract. I is just people; people like you anc me. Always, in the end, you and me That brings things home, doesn'i it? "Past, present, future, are you am me," says the poet. In Europe, nations are at grips with nations, hammering out a fu ture in conflict and suffering. We in America seem happily apart from it all. Yet, in these desperate times we too, though in a lesser degree, are "involved in the world struggle. Ideas know no boundaries or custom-houses The thoughts that have brought revolution in Russia and Germany, in Italy and Spain are here in our midst. Those thoughts might conceiv ably do here what they have done elsewhere--turn people against each other, overturn the government, overturn society. What are we going to do about it you and I? We cannot imprison thoughts. You or I may say, "Muzzle the people who express the thoughts." But a democracy doesn't do that sort of thing because it knows that ideas which are suppressed in one place break out in another with double force. The Bill of Right! those first. ten Amendments to the Constitution--is on guard, indeed, to see that the expression of opinion shall be unhampered. No, you and I shall have to go at our problem in another way. When we have an argument with a pal, what do we do? Do we spend our breath calling him names and telling him how wrong he is? Perhaps, we do, occasionally, but we're not very proud of ourselves when we come to think it over. Isn't thid rather what we do?--We give him what seems to us the right picture, the true picture, knowing that, if we can help him to see it, he just naturally won't be interested any more in the ideas which he has been expressing, and they will seem as foolish to him as they do to us. Now, we the same thing in regard to the un-American ideas that are blowing over the sea to us these days, trying to upset our liberties. It is no use just to denounce those ideas and call people names because they hold them. The thing to do is to help people realize what liberty means and what it takes to keep it, knowing that, when they really understand, they won't have any more patience with communism or fascism or naz- fcm than you or I have. Now that is exactly what a group of people, representing sixteen or seventeen leading organizations, are seeking to do. They have organized a movement called National Rededication, and the Boy Scouts of America were among the starters and are going to continue in the front rank. They believe, as you and I do, that the American ideas of liberty and fair play to everyone are right, and that the fellows in Europe who think that they can.get farther with a Big BOBS and a nation of yes-boys are dead wrong. But the people who are directing National Rededieation are not calling names. They are just telling you and me what it means to be a free citizen of this great Republic and what we shall have to do if we expect to keep our freedom, . YOU and I...You and I... Thia business of National Hedcdica- · tion, like pretty much everything else, boils down to" you and me. What are we going to do about it? In the first place, let's see what rededication means. It's a long word and if you can find a shorter one that means the snme thing, I'll present you with five good silver dollars. (I mean that!) But what does it mean? When we say we rededicate ourselves to the principles of American liberty, we mean that we declare again our devotion, to those principles, our faith in them, our determination that they shall be preserved. Hmr are you and I going to rededicate ourselves to the things that hare made our country great? The way to begin, it seems to me, is for us to get a clear idea what those principles arc. What do w_ mean by liberty? The Bill of Rights gives us the answer: freedom of worship, freedom of speech and of tht press, freedom to hold meetings, tht. right to address a request to the government, the right to own property security against high-handed officials just treatment under the law, tria' by jury. When we have a clear picture of our rights and privileges, it is wel to think -about our obligations. For you see, your right and mine doesn't mean much unless other people fee the obligation to respect them; unc their right, for instance, to speak their opinions, doesn't mean much unless you and I and people like us feel obliged to let them talk even though we don't like what they are saying So it is important that you and I think about our obligations. What are those obligations? Here are dome of them: A sense of personal responsibility for each other and for our country, self-discipline honesty of heart and mind, courage, a wide-awake interest in the public good, tolerance, fair-dealing and a willingness to work with other people, To think about our privileges anc our obligations id the beginning of rededication. The next step is to make up our minds that we are going to start developing in ourselves the qualities which free men simply have to possess, if liberty is to be, maintained. The next step for you and me is to take the Pledge of Rcciedicntibn We might think of it as something like the oath of office which the President takes at his inauguration. It i our pledge as Americana not only to give our allegiance, but to give ourselves. "believe in the principles, of the Declaration of Independence... " What are those principles? "We hold these truths to be self-evident." You and I will do well to have those truths clear before our minds. They are the rock on which our country was founded. What arc those truths? First,, "that all men are createc equal." Not equal in gifts, of course or in character or fortune, but as human beings under the law. Second, "that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights." "Unalienable" is a long word. It means rights that can't be taken away from us. Third, "that among these are life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.' You and I have the right to live, we have the right to be free. We have the right to shape our lives as our wisest judgment suggests, so long as we obey the law and maintain decent relations with our neighbors. There are other truths in the Declaration: why people establish government; where governments get their "just powers" and how it if right for people to change their government or set up a new one when the government, which they have forgets that its main' reason for existence is its ability or its willingness to protect "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." When you and I say that we bolieve in the principles of the Declaration of Independence we are saying that we believe that the government exists for the sake of the individual; not that the individual exists for the sake of the government. And there is the big difference between America and the countries over which a dictator rules. Po'nder it well.' The significance of the world-wide sequence of events that have occurred in the past weeks makes it even more important that we renew our faith in America and in these principles for which America stands. YOU and I! We may not seem very important to our neighbors, or to ourselves. But we are important to America. We are really all she has you and I and people like us. We are her blood and bone, her muscle and sinew, her heart and mind and spirit. We are her weakness or her strength, her splendor or her shame, her life or her death. All this, you and I, you and I! ECONOMIC HIGHLIGHTS "Nineteen-thirty-nine will be the best year for business and industry in a decade." That sentence accurately sums up the views of numerous economic forecasters today. In their opinion, the recovery movement, which was staggering and uncertain when it began seven or eight months ago, will continue to gain both in strength and velocity. The forecasters, of course, have been wrong before, and grievously so. But it is a fact that at present opinion is amazingly unanimous as 1 to the pleasant prospects ahead for the immediate future. You can find many an authority who is dubious over the long-term outlook--who, for instance, believes that government's greatly- stimulated pump-priming activities are going to cause the country plenty of trouble in years shortly ahead. But you'll have a hard job finding an authority who doubts that next year will be the most prosperous since the depression began. As -the conservative Annalist puts it, "Recovery shows nu signs of slackening." Biggest recent optimistic news was the announcement of a tremendous spending drive by the nation's electric utilities. Representatives of 14 major systems met with the President in Washington and, as an AP dispatch phrases it, "Amid a display of friend- iness which left the capital guessing . . announced a far-reaching pro- rram to strengthen nanonal defence and stimulate industry by expanding private power facilities." Details involve spending at least $2,000,000,000 n the next two years (a sum double the recent rate of capital expenditure by the industry) and buying sufficient epuipment to add 1,330,000 horsepower to existing 1 capacity. An,d this, t is said, is only the first stage--if ilans go through as scheduled, still freater expansion will follow. On the red side of the ledger, in he view of business generally, is the President's Emergency Board's report to the effect that railroad wages hould not be reduced, and that railway management withdraw its request for a IB per cent cut. The Pres- dent has met with George Harrison, representing railway Inbor, and John J. Pelley, president of the Association of American Railroads, for a conference concerning what to do in the future. The railroads are unquestionably in the worst position of any major industry. But there is a possibility that even this may have its brighter sidt.--the Administration is considered friendly to the lines, and informed observers say that legislation to help the industry in one way or another will lend next Congress' calendar. Excellent augury L? the automobile industry's rapid emergence from tin- economic doghouse. The severe shutdown in promotion Unit took place last spring and summer was a strong depression factor. By the ,-unie token, In August more than 600,000 refugees in Germany and Austria were in need of aid. How much the present European crisis has added to thai n u m b e r it is ut present impossible to calculate. Groups, organizations, individuals are trying to aid, but numbers are so great and the crisis so it-CL-nt that the problem is most difficult to meet. In a London paper tin-re appeared a letter from which the following plea is taken: May I make an appeal through your columns cm behalf of the hospitality sub-committee of the Coordinating Committee for Refugees? Briefly the work done by this body is the organization of hospitality over here (England) for Austrians and Germans who have been obliged to seek refuge the unlooked-for improvement in pro- j outside of Germany and Austria.

There may be minor setbacks--especially in security values", where considerable profit-taking at intervals is to be expected. But it seems certain that next year will be as good as any year since 1930--and in all probability better. This government doesn't like the dictator nations. And the dictator nations don't like us. That is the logical deduction from the President's recent anti-fascist speech, coupled with the State Department's blunt warning to Japan to respect American rights in China under the traditional "open door" theory. Newspapers in Rome and Berlin and Tokyo promptly branded us as war-makers, and denounced our great rearmament program. This government is gravely concerned with recent developments. Japan, at the beginning of her Asiatic adventure, solemnly pledged maintenance of the open door policy. Apparently sho had her fingers crossed. For that policy has been widely violated in fact--and so far as theory goes, n recent Nipponese announcement said, in effect, that Japan intends to dominate China, and that other interested power,? can like it or lump it. Still more important, possibly, from the long-term standpoint, is something on which this column has commented before--the nazi-fascist ambition to extend its influence in South America. It is reported that this government plans to establish a large radio station in the Canal Zone, from which to broadcast pro-American programs in an attempt to counteract the continuous pro-nazi programs that arc broadcast from powerful short wave stations in Germany. A major strengthening of Canal Zone defenses will in nil probability be started soon. If ever we are attacked, military experts arc coming to believe it will be from South America-where it would be a relatively simple matter for an ambitious foreign power to establish air,*army and naval bases. EDITORIAL NOTES The map of Europe, remade by the treaty of Versailles, fulfilled many an ambition and hope of people.* who had cherished national dreams *nr centuries, but in doing so s e t ' a d r i f t men, women and families who for centuries had been attached to certain and loved localities. The new boundary line and the transference of people by them, plus widespread ignorance as to these lines and the new laws and regulations concerning them set hundreds adrift;. "The insanity which divided Europe into small states without thinking of the problems created for individuals", Sir George Lansbury terms thL, and declares that "out of alien people have Czechs without any real provision made Germans, Poles, Austrians and enabling them easily to prove their nationality." Instead of one man without a country there were now thousands. A horde of people, particularly of Russians, Armenians, Greeks and Bulgarians had been made homeless refugees. The Russian revolution of 1017 produced the largest exodus of refugees during the war years themselves. Constantinople alone became the haven of 100,000 soldiers of WrangePs Army and of the 35,000 civilians accompanying them, and a large number took refuge in North China. The tragedy of Turkish massacres of Armenians and the flight of Armenians to other lands had added to the number of homeless ones, and now these set wandering by new and little understood laws! The cry of the STATELESS, one of the most pitiful ever heard, was one of the first calls made upon the young League of Nation;. The Nansen Bureau for Refugees was the answer that and individual aid here ami there and by small groups. In 11)35 the Nansen Office reported aid given in that one year alone to 91,123 refugees. Meanwhile Germany, had added almost countless numbers of these unfortunate drifters, by her expulsion of non-Aryans from her borders. Many of these took refuge in France. In 1933 25,000 German refugees were in that country; Palestine had received 6,500; Poland f,000 and so on in decreasing numbers. The High Commission for Refugees from Germany find been created with James McDonald of the United States as High Commissioner. Their report made in 1935 estimated an exodus "overseas" of about 22,000, a settlement of "several thousand" in European countries and about 10,000 in Palestine. The search for areas to which are most urgently needed so that those refugees who are emigrating to other countries may keep in close touch with the Authorities until their emigration papers arc through. Secondly, offers of hospitality for a short time to meet emergency cases while accommodation of a more permanent nature is being arranged will be of infinite value. The Archbishop of York suggested early in October that help to Czechoslovakia should equal the cost of one week of the world war which humanity has escaped through the small ro public's sacrifice. Some estimates place the money cost of the World War at Sl.500,000,000 per week. The Cooperative League of the United States held its biennial Congress in Kansas City, Mo., in October.. Some of the figures then given arc that the League represents 965,000 individuals in 1,700 of the strongest cooperative. Two years ago there were only 704,000 individual members. Now the cooperative movemenl serves 2,000,000 members of 16,000 associations, with gross t-ales in 1936 of 132,700,000,000. The General Secretary of the League described consumer's cooperation as "the most powerful economic organization in the world for plenty and peace." The Good Neighbor Fleet has inaugurated its service from New York to South American points. The steamship Brazil, first in its service to reach Rio do Janeiro, was given a rousing welcome. Two days of festivities were scheduled. The Brazil wa-3 to sail for the further South American points of Montevideo and Buenos Aiica.

SHORES OF TRIPOLI Right under the guns of the Tri- politan pirates lay the American frigate Philadelphia. She had gone on the rocks in the Mediterranean, and her guns and equipment hod been tossed overboard by her crew before they were forced to yield to an overwhelming foe. The vessel wot! a part of the infant American Navy, attempting to suppress the Barbary pirates in 1803. After the helpless Philadelphia had been seized by the pirates and her crew imprisoned, the ship was towed close to the enemy's shore batteries, where menacing guns defied the recapture of the prize. But the Americans were made of sterner stuff than the Tripolitans reckoned. They were determined that the ves-el should not be held by the enemy, and were willing to risk everything in an attempt to destroy the ship rather than to let it remain in the hands of a barbarous foe. Volunteers were called for by the gallant Stephen Decatur. Both ma rines and bluejackets responded. It was one of many similar enterprises odies of refugees can be transferred s difficult. Areas in South America devastated by the Chaco conflict of- :cr possibilities, as to Ecuador and Brazil. Questijns of policies, region and so on arc most difficult to adjust. Meanwhile a terrible addition is made to the whole subject by the crisis in Central Europe. Many refugees were in Czechoslovakia--what will be done about these? Many Czechs will be set adrift--it is impossible to take in at once the magnitude of this problem or to forecast what the answer will be. in which the U. S. Marines have shared honors with their comrades of the Navy. Slowly their small vessel, aptly named Intrepid, crept up beside the Philadelphia. Swiftly the volunteers swarmed aboard, subdued the pirates in a hand-to-hand fight, set the ship afire and scrambled back to comparative safety aboard their tiny craft. Flames mounted high on the wooden frigate when she blew up in one final explosive roar, scattering fiery bits of debris over the harbor. The Americans returned to their fleet. Along with the gallant bluejacket;, seven marines shared in the glory of this enterprise, called by the British Admiral, Lord Nelson: "The most bold and daring act of the age." FLAG WAVING The material of which flags are made is long staple cotton. Silk doesn't stand the'wind so well. The United States Government spends more than 60 thousand dollars a year for flags that it purchases. The Navy is thrifty and makes its own flags that fly over ships at sea, and navy yards on shore. It spends around 37 thousand dollars a year for cotton bunting. The Navy also makes its own signal flags and other banners. Two flags flown over the Capitol in Washington wear out in about six weeks. About 18 flags arc used each year to fly from each of the two poles in the central portion of the Capitol juilding.

Caroline county has 4,596 registered voters--3,331 white and 1,265 colored. The table of the election returns, published elsewhere in the Journal today, reveals the fact that there wai a large stay-at-home vote. Mr. Alfred Raughley's firiends expect that the appointment of collector of internal revenue will be made very soon and they are very hopeful that he will be chosen. They say recent events in political circles confirm them them in their belief that the President expects to honor Mr. Raughley. The dwelling of Mr. Clarence Richards, at Ganey's, on the Choptank, was destroyed by fire on Tuesday night, the flames starting after the family had retired, and they had to hurry from their beds and were not sufficiently clad. About all the contents were destroyed with the building. Good Food For Sound Thinkers Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.--C. D. Larson. Goodness involuntarily resists evil. --Mary Baker Eddy. Messrs. J. Harry and Emmett Raughley, two of the sons of Mr. and Mrs. Joshua B. Raughley, of Burri- ville, have gathered from their farms in Delaware over fifteen thousand baskets of sweet potatoes, and arc holding them for advanced prices. They are very successful growers am have found the business profitable. Mr. Robert L. Collier, son of Mr and Mrs. W. Oscar Collier, and Miss Cornelia Coall Macklom, the daughter of Mr. J. W. Macklem, of Chapel were married on Thursday of week, at the home of the bride's parents. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Mr. White, of Cordova. Mr. am Mre. Collier will reside on Mr. E. P Hall's form, Chapel district. Mr. George Bennett and Miss Nettie Elizabeth Shockley, both of Golds- oro, were married on Saturday af- :ernoon last at four o'clock in the M. E. Church South, of that place. The bride and groom left immediately af- er the ceremony for a" trip north and upon their return will reside in Goldsboro. Many friends of Mr. Joshua B. Raughley were glad to greet him in Denton on election day. He has improved in health quite rapidly of late. His recent illness was quite severe and relatives and friends were alarmed at his condition. Mrs. Susan Kemp Stevens, of Denton, and Mrs. Annie Sangston Elm- son, of Greensboro, attended a reunion of students of Wesleyan Female College, Wilmington, at Hotel DuPont on Thursday. Mr. Robert Oliver Wright, of Hurlock, and Miss Leah Hazel Dean, of Bel Air, were married on Tuesday last. Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Banks gave a delightful Hallowe'en party. Miss Mae Willis and Mi as Elsie Roe assisted Mrs. Banks with the decorations, which were very elaborate and suitable to the occasion. The parlor was trimmed with autumn leaves and bunches of fodder. The effect led one to feel out in the open field, with here and there a jack-o'-lantern, that furnished the light. The costumes were attractive features. Mrs. Banks was especially attractive. At ten o'clock the masks were removed after much fun and many pranks and tricks were played on the unsuspecting. All were invited out to the dining room where the table was loaded with good things of the season. The beauty of the table and room charmed everyone. The occasion was one which will long be remembered. Farmers from 'various parts of Dorcester and Caroline counties assembled at Federalsburg Saturday to attend the annual exhibit and meeting of Nanticoke Grange, of that place. The exhibit this year far exceeded that of previous years, both as to quality and quantity. Some very handsome and useful prizes were awarded to several farmers and their wives. The feature of the meeting was the exhibit of general farm pro ducts, flowers and bantam chickens James Dew, of Federalsburg, cap tured finst prize for the best genera collection of farm products, while Mrs. William Clark was awarded first prize for the best collection of flowers. Mrs. George Clark was awarded a prize of ?5 in gold for the best collection of fruits and preserves. The prize of $5 in gold for the beat 10 ears of corn went to Nicholas Laigneil, while E. N. Swiss captured first prize in the potato contest. During the afternoon several prominent grangers addressed the meeting, and in the evening Rev. Thomas S. Holt and Rev. Robert D. Bradley spoke. Hanging ht masquerade outfit in the carriage shed on his return from Scaford, Friday night, Harry Lorraine, of Reliance, forgot it until he heard a commotion in his barn last night, and upon investigating found a bag of chickens, but no one to claim them. It is supposed that the thief, after securing the chickens, was -jo badly scared when he saw the cos- :ume hanging on a nail that he mis took it for a man and fled.
