18 PAROLES GRANTED
BY GOVERNOR McLEAN
Chief Executive Declined to Issue
Paroles to 50 Other Prisoners.
Sir Walter Hotel.
Raleigh, Sept. 1. —Governor McLean
today issued 18 parols and declined to
issue 50, thus clearing up the major
portion of the applications for pardons
which confronted him on his Return
from his two months vacation. He
was unable, because of these duties,
to give his attention to other press
ing matters of state business while
he was in his office yesterday.
None of the pardons were for cases
of great interest or importance, al
though several men accused of second
degree murder w T ere paroled, among
them Carl Lynch, an 18 year old Tran
sylvania county boy who was convicted
in March. He is being released be
cause evidence presented later indi
cates that he is not guilty.
R. A. Strickland, who beat up a
school teacher in Scotland Neck, after
the teacher spanked his son, also re
ceived a parole.
Yesterday morning was occupied by
the hearing on the case of N. L. Sim
mons, formerly of Washington, N. C.,
who was convicted of embezzlement.
His former business associate, who
lost through his crime, appealed to the
governor to free him, on the ground
that he has been punished sufficiently.
No action was taken today on the

by the State Insurance Department
for the fiscal year 1926-1927, totalled
$1,394,581.01, the annual report of

Collections for the previous fiscal
year totalled $1,258,152,59. The total
amount exceeded all those turned over
in any single year since 1899-1900
when the department was organised.
“The insurance companies, associa
tions and fraternal orders operating
in the state and their agents almost
without exception have shown the
finest spirit of cooperation during the
past year and have given me and my
deputies loyal support in our work,”
Mr. Wade declared. “The newspapers
of the State have been uniformly gen

dents and fires with real enthusiasm.”
A total of $13,131,997.56 has been

200,000 NEW STUDENTS
EXPECTED IN STATE
Last Year 192,526 Entered First
Grade in State’s Public Schools.
Sir Walter Hotel.
Raleigh, Sept. 1. —Within the next
few weeks nearly two hundred thous
and children will be entering the
public schools of North Carolina for
the first time. The number enrolled
in the first grade of the public schols
for the school year 1925-26 was 192,-
526.-This year the two hundred thous
and mark will probably be exceeded.
This army of little children between
the ages of six and seven years of
age about to enter upon a new and
most important experience brought
from the State Board of Health today
a statement urging that each indivi
dual child be started to school right.
“If the child entering school is to
get the most from the advantages of
fered, that child .must be physicially
fit, ,r *declared Dr Ohas. O’H. Laughing
house, State health officer. “There
is just one way to make sure. Take
the child to a competent physician
for a thorough physieial examination
in order that any defects may be dis
covered. Then have any such,defects
as may be found corrected.”
Diseased tonsik, adenoids, bad
teeth, defective eyesight, and mal
nourishment were pointed out as
among the handicaps most common
among children which prevent proper
progress in school work, and which
definitely impair the health of the
“We are all exceedingly free to
condemn our school boards if they
employ a teacher who is not thorough
ly qualified to carry the tremendous
responsibility of teaching our children
right,” Dr. Laughinghouse said. “The
teachers of the state are in a great
measure responsible for the future
citizenship of the state. The average
life of the school teacher in active
school work is’short.' Many teachers
are leaving their profession each year
to 'take up other duties and their
places must be filled. School boards
for the most part are very careful to
select only those teachers who by
careful tests and examinations have
proven themselves worthy. But what
can the best teacher in the world do
for a child who is physically unable
to keep up with his classes?”
“By using the same degree of care
I in preparing all children to enter
school that is exercised in selecting
teachers nearly all of the failures to
make grades would be eliminated. Each
parent makes some sacrifice to send
children to school, and the state spends
millions each year to maintain its
public school system. About one-fifth
of this sacrifice and expense is largely
wasted because of the presence in the
schools of children so handicapped
physically that they can not keep up
wflth their classes nor make their
• In making sure that the child about
to enter school is physically fit it
was pointed out that a careful physi
cal examination would disclose wheth
er or not the child is up to standard
in height and weight for his age; the
condition of the tonsils, and the pres
ence or absence of adenoids; condition
of the teeth; whether or not vision
and hearing are normal; condition of
skinand muscles ; w’hether there is
hookworm infection; whether or not
the child is eating the proper sort of
food for healthy growth and in proper
amounts; and whether or not the
general habits of living are correct.

THE GYPSY PEOPLE
They Believe, However, They Are
Descended From Jewish Race.
Montreat, N. C., Sept. 1. —During
the course of his lecture on.the sub
ject “From Gypsy Tent to Pulpit,”
Rev. Gypsy Smith, Jr., emphasized
first of all, and over and over again,
the power of God to save men from
sin, and Hie willingness to save all
men, whoever and wherever they are.
He showed that the love of God is
as great toward the Gypsies as to
ward any other people, and its trans
forming power as great.
Dr. Smith stated that no one
knows who the Gypsies are, nor from
what nationality they came, that the
Gypsies themselves do not know, but
their opinion is they are a part of
the Jewish people, this opinion being
formed because of certain*, cumoms
and observances of the. two peoples
which are similar. Among the points
of similarity to which Dr. Smith
called special attention aTe the facts
that Gypsies, like Jews, bear Scrip
tural names, that they observe
scrupulous bodily cleanliness, em
phasize parental government in the
home and adhere strictly to Sabbath
He then called attention to what
are designated the great faults in the
Gypsy character, naming drunken
ness, pilfering, fortune telling and
profanity, declaring the last lo be the
greatest of them all. He said further
that while be regretted these sins
among his people, he knew they had
nothing on many people w T ho are not
There are now about 4,000,000
Gypsies, Dr. Smith said, and that so
far as he knows, this is the only
nation of people to which no ac
credited denomination has ever sent
Dr. Smith described -in a most im
pressive manner the conversion of
his grandfather, w’hich followed close
ly the passing away of his wife after
an illness with smallpox, during
which the entire family was com
pletely ostracized from every one ex
cept one physician, who consented to
minister to the stricken mother and
other members of the family. Follow
ing her fatal illness, and that of her
infant child, the bodies were inter
red in a lonely corner of a church
yard in England.
Her husband then tried to be "both
father and mother to the five mother
less children, and cared for them as
best he could until he found his two
brothers andtheir wives, who gave
him assistaice. One of these chiltren
was the boy, now so well known as
Gypsy Smith, Sr., the father of the
speaker, and the devotion between the
two is one of the outstanding char
acteristics of their lives, an is known
wherever either of them is known.
Dr. Smith gave a vivid description
of the conversation of his father and
of his subsequent call to the ministry,
and paid tender tribute to the in
fluence he has had over thousands of
other lives in his work as an -evange
list on every continent where he has
preached the gospel of Jesus Christ.

GOVERNOR IS SILENT
RELATIVE TO STRIKE
Refuses to Take Hand in or Discuss
Textile Strike at Henderson.
The Tribune Bureau. -
Sir Walter Hotel.
Raleigh, Sept. I.—Governor Angus
W. McLean today continued his re
fusal to take action in, or make a
statement regarding the Henderson
strike, despite the fact that the mill
owners have ordered the strikers to
leave the mill houses, preparatory to
filling them with imported workers.
The Governor has already said
that “the Henderson strike is not a
state matter,” and he refuses to add
anything to that statement.
The strike leaders are disappointed
by the refusal of the Governor to take
an interest in the strike/ and to in
tervene. The actions of the mill own
ers have convinced them that they
nave nothing to hope for from negotia
tiona with them, and that if victory
comes to them it must i*ome through
the support of public opinion, which
is symbolized by the governor’s office.
Consequently, the refusal of the Gov
ernor to act practically spells defeat
for their hopes.
Responsible strike leaders are re
doubling their efforts to prevent vio
lence on the part of the strikers, but
as the situation becomes more and
more serious, the hot-heads, natural
ly acquire more influence. The de
cisive test is expected on September
3, when the workers are given the
choice of returning to their jobs or
being evicted from their homes.
The strike leaders, - however, are
laying great weight on the fact that
Governor McLean has only been in
Raleigh since Monday, and that dur
ing that time he has been rushed by
two months’ accumulation of work.
In consequence, they point out, he
has had no time to go into the Hen
derson situation in detail. In conse
quence, they hope that the Governor’s
refusal to discuss the matter means,
not that he has decided against them,
but that he does not wish to make a

trustworthy? It may be under one
condition: When there is no pressure.
This conscience is a conscience of the
brethren. I believe we have as many
of those people as we ever did, people
with weak consciences. When we see
people going to places where they
should not go, we see their conscience
isn’t doing enough to \keep them away.
On the other hand a weak conscience
certainly cannot teach us the things
A defiled conscience is an untrust
worthy conscience. Certainly a de
filed conscience cannot guide a life. A
defiled conscience cannot be a proper
conviction of sin. When your con
science has been* defiled, it certainly
cannot be trusted.
We want to mention an evil con
science ngxt. An evil conscience will
direct in evil derictions. It will lead
to things that will wreck a life. We
often ask ourselves or our friends
“What is the world coming to?” Evil
conscience is the very cause of all
worldy evils. The young lives of to
day are calculated to bring their con
science down to an evil conscience.
The motion picture has more frivolity,
burglary and robberies pointed out to
the people today than any other
source. The manners and customs
of the young life today are not what
they used to be. They have seen the
social life presented on the screen.
Another untrustworthy conscience is
a seared conscience. You may ask
the question, what kind of a con
science is a seared conscience? Sin
has had its way with it. Sin has
operated it in the sense of a hot iron.
You might preach all the love there is
in the New Testament, and still it
will not effect some people.
Let us mention some consciences
that are trustworthy. A conscience
that steers itself; one that is always
alert, clearing any offense toward
God. Isn’t it a fine thing to have
a conscience that will teach our rights
as well as our fellowman’s.
Lets mention a pure conscience first.
A pure conscience can be trusted. A
pure conscience will lead in the right
Next we come to a purged con
science. If we take any of those
untrustworthy consciences and let the
blood of Christ be applied, it will be
purged. There’s something expected
from a purged conscience. The dead
works will be removed. W T hen we
see a conscience purged, we look for
some action for the Lord.
If your conscience is too weak to
lead you in church activity, just come
to the storehouse of God and let the
brethren strengthen it. If you are a
Christian and not vitally active, you
must have the wrong kind of a con
science. You had better come to
Christ for a supply of grace.
These services are all strengthening
and are full of the real gospel. We
want you to be present to hear every
sermon. There’s something in them
that will brighten the way to salva
tion for you if you will accept it.
HAND PAINTED HOSIERY.
Latest Novelty of Paris Not Expected
To Become Prevalent.
Paris, Aug. 1. —Stockings With hand
painted designs are the offering of a
shop here. Sprigs of flowers on pale
colored hose have caused some com
ment but there is little indication that
the novelty will be taken seriously.
More approved are the stockings
with four points woven into the heel
in place of the one women ve ac
customed to. There is talk of stock
ings of two tones, the heels and toes
to show a deeper shade than the
ground of the hosiery.

Elevator to Top of Mont Blanc.
Paris, Sept. I.—lt will not be long
before the distinction of having as
cended to the top of Mont Blanc,
Europe’s highest mountain, will be a
very ordinary one indeed. The top
will soon be reached in two hours
without climbing or guides by the
completion of a cable railVay from
Chamonix to the summit of Aiguille

road to the summit of Mont Blanc
itself. Construction of the cable rail
way was begun seventeen years ago
but was delayed by the war. ~
