CROPPERS MORE HOPEFUL
An amazing new spirit of hopefulness
is being brought into the lives
of share croppers and others ir. tile
lower 50 per cent, of the nation's
agricultural group by the Resettlement
Administration, former Governor
William K. Sweet, of Coloradc
told a group in Raleigh last week
speaking on "Resettlemerit, a Troj
ect in Human Conservation." Hi
said many of these farmers can al
most be classed as economic refugees,
"the waste product of a cruclh
inefficient social system." Many p.
them are - ib-marginal, as well ai
the iand they live on. but the gov
ernment feels an obligation to hel]
such people, Governor fweet said
if we can replace poverty wit!
economic seen r-iv, both in the elite
and in the country, we need neve
fear but that we shell retain ou
democratic institutions and ou
American traditions. It is only b
eradicating poverty that wc ca
hope to make America safe for lihei

tiat the method should have been

Attorney General A. A. F. Sea,-ell

not to put Johnson to death by (
as, as that method would be unlawill,
in view of the court opinion, and

BANKS IN t.OOIJ SUA PR
North Carolina state banks are in J
he best condition they have been.!
since 1920 and within another year',
vtil exceed that "high," Commisslon;r
of banks Gurney P Hood, prciicts,
basing his belief on the conrtition
as of November .1. Resources
then totaled $3IS, 109,115, with combined
deposits of $279,408,297, an increase
of $51,15^.4^4 over, a year
before. Mr. Hood estimates that the
combined resources of state and national
banks is above $400,000,000 and
.heir combined deposits $360,000,000. |
National bank figures are not avail-!
The state banks are in exceilent j
shape ''and are prepared and anxious
to meet any credit demands that may
be made on them," Commissioner
Hood said, adding: North Carolina is
iow well taken care of from a banking
standpoint and we want to caution
everyone against the possibility
Of ODeninf arfrtitiftnnl hanlrc Mrl.Arn
they are not needed."
Commissioner Hood denied the application
(or a charter for the Robeson
Ban'.; & Tusl Oo.t Lumberton, on
the ground that Robeson county and
Lumberton have enough banks to the
usual banking business and more
banks would endanger those operating.
He made a survey which shows
3even banks are now operating In
the county, a national bank at Lumberton,
and that 18 banks have closed
in the 11 towns in the county in
the past 20 years. "If ail the banks
n Robeson county would organize a
Clearing House Association and cooperate
fully, they would be in i>osiLion
to render all the banking service
needed in the county," Mr. Hood
