BOONE. N. C. FEBRUARY 2Sch to
<J. R. Arey )
In order to give tbe cheese makers
of of western North Carolina an
opportunity to study the latest and
most up-to-date methods in cheese
manufacturing the Dairy Extension
office, Raleigh, N. C. has arranged
to hold s six weeks' short course in
cheese making at the Three Forks
Factory, Boone, N. C. The course begins
February 26th and extends thru
March 17 th.
Quality is the deciding factor in
marketing cheese. There is always an
active demand, at a fair price, for
cheese of a good quality, but seconds
are always a drag on the market at
any price. The cheese maker who will
put into practice the most up-to-date
methods of cheese making can to a
large degree determine the quality
of the cheese that his factory turns
out. Quality will he the key note in
this short course. Mr. HJ L. Wilson
who will give the instructions in
cheese making has just returned from
Cornell University, New York, and
Washington, D. C. where he made a
study in some of the latest methods
used in cheese making at these places.
It is hoped that every cheese maker in
the state will take advantage of this
school ar.d arrange t* be pres-ent
during the entire course. Others who
are not now making cheese but who
wish to take the work arc invited to
do so. There will be no charge for
the course of instructions.
In addition to the practicable work
in cheese making popular lectures
relating to dairy farming and kindred
subjects will be given in the
county agent's office at the court
house on afternoons of days when
cheese is not being made. Such subjects
as Feeding the Dairy Cow, Rai
sing the Dairy Calf, Remodeling the
Dairy ilsrn, Culling tbs Chickens for
Hgg Production, Feeding Hogs for
Profit and Management of tbe Dairy
Herd will be discussed at these afternoon
meetings to which the public is
invited. ? For

this school interested parties should

SIMMONS IS NOT
Carolina Senator Will Not Oppose
Robinoon His Health is Not
Goo<f?Physicians Warn Him Not!
to Take On New Burdens,
drawal of Senator Simmons, of North j
Carolina, from the race with Senator'
Robinson of Arkansas for Democrat-'
ic leadership in the next senate when j
Senator Underwood of Alabama, the
present uemocratic leader, will retire was
announced by Senator Overman!
of North Carolina, on behalf of hiscolleague.
The announcement by Senator Overman
was regarded as assuring the
election of Senator Robinson. Sen
ator Simmons authorized the announcj
i ment from his sick bed at ^"ew Bern!
| Senator Overman's statement fol-s
1 lows: I
"My colleague, Senator Simn.ons, J
j from his siek bed in New Born. N.
_C. has asked me to make public request
that his name shall no longer
be considered for the post, of democratic
leader in the Senate. Notwithstanding
the fact that more
than half the members of the present
senate are supporting him, and
he has othe$ assurances that justify
him in feeling most hopefui of
success, Senator Simmons feels ho
must take this action in part upon
consideiaticn of his health and in
part for reasons of party harmony.
My colleague's physicians have advised
him that he must take the
best care of himself for several
months t.o come, and they strongly
warn liim against undertaking any
new burdens until he shall have
fully recovered his strength.
"It is well known here that Senator
Simmons in the beginning consented
to the use of his name for
the democratic leadership only upon
wh?t seemed to be satisfactory assurances
that there would be no
considerable opposition. He stated
then that be would not under any
circumstances enter into a scramble
for the place. Since Senator **trrtrtwson
for whom Senator Simmons feels
high esteem and friendship, was offered
as a candidate. Senator Simmons
haa refrained from withdrawing his
own name only because he has felt
' that loyalty to his own friends and
supporters would not permit it.
| "My colleague now feels, however;
k in view of his health and of the j
fact that the contest between his'
5 friends and those of Senator Robinson
has grown so close and promis-|
es to be so long drawn out, with the
?. consequent neglect of that necessary
concentration by Democratic sena..
tors of mind and effort on party and
/ national affairs all through this
- year, that the highest national and
- party considerations demand th?t
the contest shll proceed nd further.
" Senator Simmons therefore has
3 asked and obtained the consent of
5 j his friends to leave the field clea* to
pI Senator Robinson, whose leadership,
e my colleague believes, will be in
. 1 every respect able and satisfactory.
"Senator Simmons wishes me to
s xpress for him hia deep and grate.
ful appreciation of the loyal support
given him and of the splendid
. zeal and generalship that his friends
1 have exercised in his behalf? He
L. appreciates no less too, the kind
solicitude and regard for him and
e his present state of health that have
lt prompted his friends in the Senate
^ to yield without hard feeling to his
^ desire to take himself out of consideration,
and bring the contest tc

LYNCHING EVIL !
ONE FOURTH AS MANY VICTIMS
AS WAS THE CASE THIRTY b
YEARS ACO o
ATLANTA, Feb. 10th?That the e
lynching evil is steadily being re- .
duced, both as to numbers and area,
that its eradication is only a matter n
of years, is the substance of a state- ?
ment given out by the Commission on ti
interrracial Cooperation as the result a
of a careful study of the lynching re-. ^
cord for the past forty years. j ,
During that period, the statement j1(
points out, lynchings have occurred
in forty-four States in as many as
thirty-three in a single year (1892)
and in an average of twenty one state n
a year, whereas in 1921 only thirteen
states had lynchings and in 1922 a
only ten. This indicates that the habit
is gradually being pushed off the
The number of victims also has r.
steadily decreased, with slight vari-i
ations, from the high mark of 255 j V
in 1892 to 57 last year, the latter (
figure being only about half the an- ?
nuai average for the forty year period
which was 109 In addition it is (
pointed out that there has been a t
notabl* decrease in the lynching ha- h
bit in the states where it still persists t
Last's year records represent a de- t
crease of 27 per cent from the forty
year annual hverage of 79 for the *
same ten states.
The figures for certain states where K
special efforts have been made to curb j
Synching are cited as particularly en- r,
couraging in their assurance that the v
habit can be overcome when public i
sentiment and law unite against it. *
For example, Alabama with a yearly (
average of eight lynchings for the j.
forty years, has cut the number to ?
two. Tennessee with an average of s
four had but one in 1922. Louisiana i
with an average of nine has cut the c
|ord to three. North Carolina, Vir[ginia.
South Carolina, each with an r
I average of six had but two last year [
I and a total of only live in the last \
four years. Oklahoma, Missouri and (
| Kentucky each averaging froro two i
'to five victims per year for forty J
[*ybai*s past had nor a single one in s
It was pointed out that in several J
states special legislation had been
enacted and found vfery helping in j
curbing lynching, among the most
effective measures being a state con- /
stabulary under the control of the ^
governor, as in Alabama and Tennessee
and provision for the removal
of officers who surrender prisons to
mobs, as in Alabama, Kentucky, Flor| 9
. Ida and South Carolina. These two j
I measures consistently applied say:;
the commission, will make it possible
for any state to reduce lynching to
the vanishing point. I
