W. Burt Harper tendered his
resignation as principal of Lin-
eoln Heights high school. No

he Intends to be in the state for
the coming school term.
Professor Harper came to the
school in 1929, and served his
first year as assistant principal.
The following year he was made
principal and has • been holding
that position up until the pres
ent time. He leaves a host of
friends among both races who
late to see him leave. Professor
Harper states that it is with
great reluctance that he leaves,
because of the ,many pleasant
•onnections made during his four
years here, and because of the
splendid type of cooperation
manifested on many sides by
those interested in seeing Lin-
toin Heights take a place of in
fluence and importance among
Ute high schools of the state. He
axpressed particularly his appre-
riation to Superintendent C. C.
Wright, the County Hoard of
Education and the merchants of '

Just as valuable to Uncle Sam,
after refining, as coin or bullion
drawn out of hoarding. Convert
ing this wealth into cash would
also vastly stimulate the pur-
chaslng’Tjower of the nation.
The great treasure of unused
gold is In the form of old gold
jewelry, watch cases, spectacle
f,ames, dental plates, watch
chains and trinkets of many
kinds. The average person will
be surprised at the cash value of
these trinkets lying away In old
bureau drawers, and closets, and
these sums, multiplied by the
twenty-five million families
throughout the United States,
will pile up a fabulous treasure.
A similar campaign carried on
in Great Britain in 1931 orought
out of hiding $500,000,000 worth
of gold. It Is contldiently believed
that the United States, with near
ly three times Great Britain’s po
pulation, can at least equal this
record. Both the British and
Canadian campaigns made the
fatal mistake of permitting this
gold business to slip into the
hands of irresponsible dealers.
Gold was often bought by travel
ing buyers and the public was
often cheated; and the gold did
not always find its way to the
Hriti.sli Government where it was
so badly needed.
The fnited States has already
suffered to some extent from the
dau.ger. The country lias
been overrun with canvassers
wlio know very little about prec
ious metals and who are irre
sponsible or downri.ght dishon

dealers claim to he representa
tives of the United Stales Gov
ernment and induce unsuspect
ing people to part with their old
gold for only a fraction of its
value. Many ingenious swindling
tricks, including the use of false
scales, are resorted to by these
