THE ALAMANCE GLEANER VOL. LIV. ? GRAHAM, N, C., THURSDAY OCTOBER 25, 1928. NO. 38. . , ,, A, WHAT'S GOING ON 1 NEWS REVIEW OF CURRENTEVENTS Smith's Trip Through Bor der States and to Chicago ?Hoover at Boston. By EDWARD W. RICHARD POLITICALLY -speaking, the news ef the week centered in AJ Smith's tour of the border states, which car ried him as tar as Sedalla, Mo., whence be passed up through north ern Illinois to Chicago for a stop of several days. The trip demonstrated the personal popularity of the Demo cratic candidate, for everywhere he was greeted by wildly cheering throngs. In Louisville he spoke main ly on the tariff, and the Republicans asserted that he "ditched" the tradi tional dogma thereon in that speech. Next day the governor paid a reverent visit to the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln at Hodgenville, Ky? and from there passed on to St Louis, which city gave him what was described as the biggest and loudest ovation he had received since his nomination. Be made no set speech there, but moved onward to Sedalla and there delivered an address on the topic of "Coolldge Economy." Be declared the Coolldge administration was actually guilty of willful waste, giving facts and figures supposed to support this assertion, and attacking the statements made by Director of the Budget Lord and Secretary of the Treasury Mellon. Chicago came next on the Itinerary, though when Smith's train passed through Springfield he was induced to ' taik when a lond speaker on wheels was brought alongside the rear plat form on which he Was displaying him self A tremendous and noisy crowd welcomed him to Chicago, and after a day of rest and work on his address he made a tour of the city, appeared at banquets abd, Friday night, spoke to an enthusiastic crowd that filled the One Hundred and Thirty-first In fantry armory to bursting. HERBERT Hoover's personal con tribution of tbe week to the cam paign was ills address In Boston, where before 9,000 friendly listeners In the city arena he told of the coun try's economic prosperity for which tbe Republican party claims the cred it Continuance of tbe protective tariff, he argued. Is necessary for tbe continuance of this prosperity, and be sought to refute Smith's assertions In that connection. In replying to the Democratic attempt to show that changes in tariff would be made by them that would hurt business or la bor, Hoover said that eight months ago every Democrat In tbe senate voted for a resolution designed to re duce the tariff. In Springfield and other Massachusetts' cities through which he passed Hoover made earn est pleas that every citizen should take an active Interest In the 1 "resi dential campaign and that every Re publican should loyally support his party. Senator Borah, big gun of tbe Re publican-speaking battery, Invaded the South last week and delivered two rousing speeches at Salisbury and Charlotte, N. O. In the former he appealed especially to the women vot ers to help defeat Smith and so pre vent the overthrow of prohibition. In Charlotte the senator defended at length the record of Hoover as food administrator during the war, assert ing that he always showed himself to be the friend of tbe farmer and was ever vigilant to do the very best for the protection of the- American pro-. ducers. .Reviewing the agricultural situation after the armistice, tbe sen ator declared that Hoover opposed the proposal of the agricultural ad visory committee In 1918 to fix a mini mum price for wheat of 82.48 a bush el because it would not "be just to the consumers." From North Carolina Senator Borah moved Into Tennessee, speaking at Chattanooga. EXCEPT tor the stupid and hoerfah behavior of the customs idHtlsl detailed to Lakehnrst, the antra] of the German dirigible Graf Zeppelin and the reception accorded Its com mander, crew and passegera, were all Airplanes Croat Aid to Alaska Map Makers The work of mapping the Mind ?pots la Alaska baa bean aided mate rially in the recant eanaon by air planes, which the goraramaat workers need for transporting men aad sup plies Into tba unknown regions. This was made known the other day at the Interior deportment by 8. B. Ooppe. geologist, end Gerald Huge raid, topo graph Ir engineer, both mombeis of the ?UK of the geologies! sarray, who . . a that could be asked. Before going to the hangars In New Jersey the huge airship spent an boor circling over New York city, and next day Dr. Hugo Eckener and his men were re ceived formally by the metropolis with the nsoal accompaniments of parade through streets Oiled with con fetti and ticker tape, speeches at the city hall and a banquet On Friday Doctor Eckener was the guest of Pres ident Coolldge at breakfast in the White House. Meanwhile the Injuries sustained by the Zeppelin Just before reaching America were being repaired and the airship was being made ready for a two days' tour of the Midwest which would take It over Chicago, Cleveland, Akron, Cincinnati and Detroit with probable stop at the last named city, which has a mooring mast While in New York Doctor Eckener announced tentative plans for the for mation of a trans-Atlantic Zeppelin mall and passenger service to be cap italized for 914,000,4X10 and discussed the details with several financiers. He said to interviewers that he wanted American capitalists to entrust the $14,000,(XX) to him and his German confreres. The sum would be nsed to build four new Zeppelins, each big ger than the Graf Zeppelin, and to use them on regular all-year-round voyages between Germany and an American airport u -ar Washington or Baltimore. If the money can be ob tained Doctor Eckener said $8,000,000 would be spent on the four new gas bags and $6,000,000 would be paid out', for new hangars In Germany and the United States. Two of the dirigibles would be built In Germany and two in America. Dispatches from Buenos Aires said the Argentine poet-office officials had signed a contract with a Spanish Transaerlal company for the carrying of mall monthly between 8pain and the Argentine, and the company named la reported to have leased the Graf Zeppelin for two years. Several delegates to the convention of the Investment Bankers' association at Atlantic City started for an air plane ride Thursday. The plane went into a nose dive and crashed and W. O. Cbanute, a banker of Denver and grandson of Octave Cbanute, "the fa ther of aviation,'' was killed. Seven other men were Injured. Baron von Hoenefeld, Who was fly ing from Germany to Tokyo, (Dade a forced landing In a suburb of the lat ter city and his plane was badly smashed. The baron and his two com panions escaped unhurt. Tbey had lost their way In a rainstorm. NEW YORK'S bis sever scandal reached Its climax with the con viction of Maurice E. Connolly, vbo resigned under Are as borough presi dent of Queens last April, and Fred erick Seely, who was design engineer In the Queens' sewer bureau.' They were found guilty by a Jury of con spiring with the late John M. Phillips, 1 sewer pipe manufacturer, to defraud the city in contracts for $29,000,000 public sewers. Connolly was given the maximum sentence of one year In prison and $900 fine. The evidence In the trial Indicated that Phillips grafted more than $10000,000 in ten years. It Is expected a taxpayers' suit will be started to recover from Connolly and the Phillips estate the money Illegally expended. % ANOTHER interesting Instance of fundamentalism In the southern border states baa arisen. Charles Smith of New lorlt, president of the American Association for the Ad vancement of Atheism, went down to Arkansas to work against a proposed anti-evolution law to be voted on In the general election next month. He was arrested In Little Bock on a charge of distributing printed mate rial "calculated to provoke a breach of the peace" and was fined <28 and costs, not being permitted to testify In his own behslf because Be refused to take the customary oath. Smith decided to serve out bis One la prison as s protest, he said, against the state laws that prohibit atheists from tes tifying la courts or holding public of fice. ? . Attorney general sabgent ruled that the contract of Decem ber 20, between the United State* government and the .Sinclair Crude ' OH Porchaaiag company, for the enle bn? jut retained to from a mason of exploration la the territory. Tko geological enrrey haa been wtrttaf Cor 30 years en the develop ment of a map of Alaska aad aa the boo been tonsaaitfl substantially In setting pack trains Into the amna taias and eat spate, the neihssa nsl tattpa ""xhe'^Id'^rney* ?abnd three wuba to smks was pade *g *snJ*jsJaei. of the government's royalty oil la the Salt Crock Held in Wyoaring was In valid. Mr. Sargent baaed bia declalon on two circumstances: First, that the contract was not let In a manner re quired by law, and, second, that the secretary of the Interior did not have legal power to sign a contract con taining an option provision In favor of the Sinclair OH Purchasing com pany. The original award to the Sinclair concern granted a lease for five years with option of renewal for another five years. The option was renewed February 20, 1928, by Hubert Work, secretary of the. Interior, after con sulting departmental counsel. Doctor Work says this renewal was required by the contract and that criticism of his action Is entirely of campaign origin."* Commercial and municipal at" tlvltles in the city of Ixxtx, Ro land, were brought to a standstill by a general strike enforced Id behalf of striking textile workers. City em ployees were forced to quit work, street cars and taxis were stopped, theaters were closed, and even .the members of the municipal council, most of them Socialists, closed their desks. Printers were out only a few hours, nud soldiers kept the telephone exchanges open. Street riots pro voked by Communist agitators were numerous, and later the strike spread to other cities. PREMIER MUSSOLINI of Italy In * a radio addren Informed the farmer* of the country that he Intend ed henceforth to devote the major re construction efforts of Fascism to ag riculture and that the government would place billions of lire at their disposal. Thousands of acres thai have lain Idle since the days of the old Romans are to be brought under cultivation, and Irrigation and refor estation are to receive much atten tion. The duce then distributed about 185,000 In prises to grain growers. Already Italy Is growing almost enough wheat to support Its popula tion. For the first time since the Italian kingdom was established In 1870 a death sentence for murder was passed and executed the other day In Rome Capital punishment for certain de grees of itturder was Introduced In tbe new Fascist code, and Mlchele Magglora. who murdered two Fascists for political reasons only, was the first victim. STEPHEN BETHLEN, premier ot Hungary, haa announced that the people of that country will soon be called on to rote for the selection ol a king to sit on the throne that has been vacant since the abdication ol King Charles In 1018. Bethlen said he was opposed to the choice of Arch duke Otto, the sixteen-year-old son ol Charles, and It appears that Archduke Albert, son of the Hapsburg Archduke Frederick, Is the leading contender. Premier Mussolini of Italy baa let It be known that he will oppose the se lection of any Hapsburg for the Hun garian throne. \iriLLIAM EDWARD HICKMAN, * * the youth who kidnaped and murdered twelve-year-old Marlon Parker, danfbter of a Los Ancelea banker, paid for Ms crime with Ma life on Friday. Ha was banged at San Qaentin prison, all efforts to sare him from the gallows baring tailed. Hickman confessed to many other crimes "to ease Ma conscience," and after embracing the Roman Catholic religion said that he was assured of ' salvation.

J Walsh. I etui, I'm going to speod 1?? the money Uncle Bel lent me 1 J for thou ducky puiups in Bollowey's window. I don't believe there will be any prettier on the campus, do you)" Betty looked up swiftly from the cake she was stirring, her eyes bewil dered: "The campus." she repeated. "What campus) Ob, May, surely you're not counting on going?" "Not counting) Indeed, I've been thinking of the reunion for months. You know, Betty Mnrshall, you Mid you'd take me." Betty stared at the flushed Indig nant face beneath the mop of glossy curia. "That was back In the winter before dad broke his arm and before Will got pneumonia. I don't see quite bow It can be managed now, May. 1 shouldn't like to go unless our clothes look right." "1 have my sports suit. I've been keeping It nice for this. With, thou plain, expensive pumps and my little felt hat, I'll look One." The younger sister, just graduated from high school, did. Indeed, look pretty, even In her somewhat tumbled pink apron. Youth and health and a gay defiance toward trouble In sny form beamed In her saucy eyes and her mouth curved upward delightfully. Betty looked much the same before she bad taken the brunt of the family reverses on her shoulders, and now. when the financial situation was eas ing up, she was looking brighter, ffu: the winter had been a long pull. Teaching gll day and being the fam ily angel at odd hours had left ber thin. "It will mean a lot to me," mur mured May, coaxlngly, "I shan't feel so strange when I enter In the fall and I may meet some of the instructors.' Youll surely take me to the dean of women, wont you)" "It will do you good, Betty," clilmed In Mrs. Marshall comfortably, a wom an who had learned to take Inevitable bumps of life with composure. "I know you haven't much to wear, but look nice In most anything, and it Isn't as though you were going with a beau." Bay giggled at the old-fashioned term for boy friend, but Betty colored. It sounded as though she bad been definitely placed upon the old maid's shelf, and It hurt. Of course, she'd been too busy looking after the family to have any time for frivolity, but It struck ber with an uncomfortable thought Who had asked her to go to any of the various small-town amuse ments) No one. "You wouldn't disappoint your lit tle sister, would you, Betty) I've told all the girls that we're going to your university reunion. It won't matter so mnch what you wear, because you are through. I'm just beginning." ' May had no Intention of being cruel when making this statement She merely spoke as she thonght They went to the nearby university city In the runabout that had been purchased second-band. Betty would have preferred the train, but they could drive In for the cost of one rail road fare, and that decided the ques tion. As they approached the stately gray buildings and saw the shining cars parked In solid rows. May stirred rest ively. "Our car does look funny, just as you said It would. Suppose we stop sround the corner." The sisters strolled across the well kept turf towards the huge umbrella which sbelteggd Betty's class, the year above jt In large figures. Betty dread ed any chance encounters and scorned herself for so doing. It was extreme ly silly to care shoot her old suit. She'd more than done her port In the world In the year that bad Inter vened, but at twenty-four one cares more about a smart hat than what lies under It?at such moments, at least. And most of the class were right there, greeting ber with a casual cor dially. "Living near bare, Betty)" asked Madge, turning to wave to a new ar rival and scarcely listening to Betty's low answer. "Bio, Betta, where shall yon go this summer) We're going across for a month In Switzerland.'' Anne linked arms la-the old fashion, then turned to reply to a dark yoong man who de manded ber attention. May looked about eagerly dimpling saucily when her sitter presented ber to classmates, apparently enjoying ev cry moment Then across some benches, Betty saw Frank Moore. Ber heart skipped a beat then thumped riotously. They had sat together In Bngllah four years and the girl had woven some ynothfnl dreams about the silent man who had been her escort at many campus activ ities. He looked a trifle older and had improved {really. Be looked straight Into Betty's rye*, smiled ?n<1 lifted Us cap. She forgot the well-worn stilt she wore?forgot the shsbb; car parked around the corner?and stood dream In* the old dream. There was some thing In the expression of his face that told her what she wished to know ?Frank cared. "What a good-looking man. Betty, see. In the white flannels. He la smil ing at ma," cried llay, flushing ador ably. "1 used to know him," answered the other evenly. Frank had turned and was walking In the opposite direction with a gray-haired woman on his arm. Betty never remembered just how she got through that afternoon and she vetoed May's request that they stay for the slog. "We've a long drive ahead of us," she Insisted; "we'd better start now.' Betty, thinking of the welcome that she felt sure had been In her betray ing eyes for the man who had not cared enough to walk a'few yards to greet her, was warm with shame. Why bad she not nodded coolly as she'd seen those well-dressed, perfectly poised girls do? "Oh, driving?" an acquaintance ol the previous year caught the words and regarded Betty with a faint show of Interest. "You might drop me at my bouse If you like. What car do you drive?" May laughed and named the make. "It's only a runabout; you'd crush your dress," she observed. "Oh. what a shrill whistle," she ended. "Oh," said the beautifully gowned one, "how quaint Fank Moore baa a speedy eight 8un, all silver flttlngs and fawn velvet 1 love to ride In that I fancy he's looking for me 'By." |n complete silence the slaters found the little car and climbed In, then May said: "I expect you know the man she named. Her eyes had that canny look, I've noticed, when girls want to j hurt you." "Yea, I know him. He was that man yon mentioned." At the moment when the reluctant starter had been choked Into activity Betty glanced op to scan the traffic and met the radiant smile of Frank, wlio had just hurried up He paused long enough to drop a bill Into the eager hand of a small boy, then held nut his hand to Betty. "I wasn't going to take any chances of losing you In this jam; My Aunl Cordellla felt faint from the heat and I had to take her back to her friends, who parked a block from here, so I caught that boy and told him to keep you In sight. Did yon hear that ear splitting whistle he gave to attract my attention?" When Hetty bad presented blm to her attentive sister, be sold: "You are both going to dine with me and well take In the sing. I've some cousins here end we'll get s table for the six of us." "I've thought of yoa almost con stantly, Betty," he whispered Inter as they strolled behind the others. "I went abroad last year and have not been hack long. Aren't ydu going to Invite uie out to your home?" "Sonic boy friend, that Frank." said May sleepily as they drove Into the quiet town. "Think ynuH ever see him again?" "Yes, he's driving oot Sunday." "Why didn't you tell me you knew a rich man?" "I didn't know It myselt I?I didn't really think of that." "Betty, I could shake you for be Ing so Impractical,"* said the disgust ed May. "Dldo't he have a car at col lege?" "Yea," Betty spoke dreamily. "I won der If he remembered this old suit." "No. I think be was as bemused ss you are. You're a Una pair of babes In the wood. 8uppoee I hadn't made you go today? You might never have met again. I really think yon ought to get me a large box of nut-center chocolates for playing Cupid so sue cessfully."

Cornish Coast (Prepared by the National Geographic Society. Washington. D. C.) HE WHO has traveled the roada through Cornwall. England'* soullternmoat county, recalls the vast moor*, dull, dun, and bare, on which the only Interruption to the eye's range la an occasional ruined plthouse. through the gaps In which one glimpses the blue sky; or a tumbled heap of earth where once Phoenician tin miners, perhaps, sought the metal which a Cornish historian once declared 'near as fyn as sylver." .At long Intervals a cottage Is en countered of dour gray granite, roofed with granite, breastplated against the driving rains with slate. In a granite walled Inclosure, with never a shrub or tree to vary the cold monotony. But Cornwall has charm and It Is a charm of enchantment. Its moors are broken by hidden valleys, the ex istence of which one does not suspect until their Hps are reached, filled with the greenest grass, from which great trees tower. The hedges that rim In the roada, worn down by centuries of traffic, glow with the purple of fox glove and the yellow of the funte. In ao hour's drive one posses from cliffs of a ravage, sheer hostility, at whose feet break the most dangerous seas In England, to smiling estuaries amid rolling hills on which the green of English oak alternate with glowing fields. History, and tradition play their ?parts In creating Cornwall's charm. It was on Cornish shores that galleys landed In search of tin long before the Roman rule In England. luteal tradi tion holds that Jewish traders gave Its name to the little village of Man sion?Bitter Zlon?which Is at least as often called Market Jew by the country people as by Its own name. It Is a pity that archeologlsts laugh at tbls fanciful etymology. Offshore the Land of Lyonesae lies sunken with Its 140 parish churches, whose bell* the fishermen say, may still be heard on days of onshore storms. Wreckers and Smugglers. It Is not many years since wrecking was an established Industry there, and the parson's lame mare, with a ship's lantern tied under her neck, was set to hobble of an evening along the sands, to toll bewildered shlpmen on the rocks. Cottagers drop pins In tlie holy wells and read their fortunes In the bubbling of the disturbed waters The county names are an ever changing delight. Can there be a more charming title for a church than 8t. Jurt In Itoselaod? One crosses by Slaughter bridge straight Into a remote and furious past. Almost every little sencoast town has Its smugglers' cave with a well authenticated history. From the Lix ard the Spanish Armada was sighted and alarm fires were lighted.
