Friday, June 5,1931 Halifax Having Her Troubles Halifax county is having her troubles. Four deputy sheriffs have beet 1 ) indicted there fur embezzlement, and several of its bankers are up for various and sun- dry short-comings. * We have heard a long'ami loud wail about property losses for the |»st several years but apj>arently we lost more honor than we did money. *So many people have shown themselves dishonest by stealing, em bezzling, lying and cheating that some steps should be taken to establish more honesty and truthfulness. A special course should lie provided in the schools to guard against the wrongs. Tennessee's Politi&al Brawl Tennessee is having trouble with her governor. The legislature is after the high official for apparent mis oonduct in helping a few friends rob the state and everyone else they could get their hands on. As is in most political brawls, it is now difficult to see and understand what the end will bring. The governor and his friends are shouting persecution while the people are shouting robbery. It is quite possible that. lx>th sides have some grounds to support their arguments, but the affair goes to prove that human nature has lost very little, if any, of its hoggishness. Bertie Makes a Wise Decision A wise decision it was when Bertie county voted to continue farm demonstration work there. We have neglected for too long a time the im portance of the farm and its proper management. And now is the time to make it the most desirable, the most profitable and most honorable of all pro fessions or vocations in life. One of the troubles now is that the town has out- grown the county. It is time to say, country, you must increase and town, you must decrease. 1 One of our greatest troubles results because it costs the country too much to sustain the town or city. Farmers Also Have Surplus of Advice No class of |>eople has ever had more advice than the farmers. Sometimes the advice was good, ""and some times it was bad. Most of the time it has been bad advice Naturally, everybody wants to see the farmers do well, for when they succeed, business is good, and when they lose out, things generally become critical. However, we feel free to advise the farmer to work for quality this year and not for pounds. We already have 185,000,000 more pounds of tobacco on hand than we had a year ago, and unless all signs fail, real poor tobacco will not be worth curing this fall. Oir the other hand, the farmer having a large per cent of good tobacco stands some chance of making a little profit. Experience has taught us that by putting plenty of dirt to the plants at every cultivation better re sults are obtained. Side dressing with soda or o'her high-powered amonia is dangerous as well as costly. A light crop with good quality will undoubtedly pay better, and every farmer shotftd work for quality. North Carolina' leads all State* in the Union in the nunt>er o( cotton mills, the number of active spindles, and in the consumption of raw cotton.' North Carolina manufacture! more hosiery than any State in the Union— about 26,000,000 dozen pain annually. I More cotton goodi are manufactured in North Carolina than in any other Slate. NOTICE of Spactal Tax FUrtion in Sandy Ride* School District, Martin County, Mora Carolina In compliance with the withes of a petition signed by necessary number' of qualified voters of Sandy Ridge School District Np. 6, white, which w»s duly approved by the Board of Ed scat to 11 erf Martin County and is in' accordance with provision of Article 17 of New School Code of 1923. Notice is hereby given that an elec tion will be held at the school build in* of said district on the 20th day •f July, 1931, in said district, which ia described hereinafter, for the pur School District a* to whether a ms The controversy between MassoKni and the Pope may yet grow into much trouble. Without attempting to enter the present controversy or to give any opinion it does appear to us that Musaolini is going to get himself and his country into serious trouble some day. It is apparent that the Italian dictator regards himself above religion of all classes, both Protestant and Catholic. When any man thinks more highly of himself than he does of the sanctity, both political and religious, which has required a thousand of years for the best minds and best hearts to establish, then our civilization is in danger. What this Country needs is for Will Rogers to tell the government heads what to do. From appearances, Mr. Rogers has more sense than any or perhaps all all of them together. And then he has another valu able quality that would go along way towards good government and that quality is honesty. The load is never heavy if all pull togehter. What this country needs is a friendly pull by everybody, rich, poor, and all the other classes. If every community would practice this virtue, we would not hear of hunger nor see rags. And then if folks in every community would pull together they would have happiness and peace. When we study our condition and find that no less than 98 per cent of our trouble comes to us on ac count of our own shortcomings, it is hard to under stand why we are not willing and anxious to pull to gether, to make our church, our schools, our neigh borhood, our towns, our hdmes, and ourselves better. We are evidently wasting too much of our valu able time trying to get the other fellow to do the right thing and not enough hammering out our own selves into useful, honorable, unselfish citizens. Uncle Sam seems to be exactly like his 120,000,000 children. He is losing money, and so are we. Then why should we criticize each other for doing exact ly alike. There are only about a dozen in the whole coun try who have-not lost money. They are the tobacco man, electric man, automobile man, chain store man, motion picture man, and one or two others. If we will stop trading with these big money makers for a while, we will stop losing, too. And Uncle Sam will have to stop so much wild spending for war and other unnecessary things, too. Pinchot would make a fine Democratic presiden tial candidate. Anybody that the old-line Republi cans fight as hard as they have Pinchot is bound to be Democratic in spirit and evident regards men as valuable as money. Nearly seven million dollars was distributed a mong former service men in North Carolina dur ing the month of April. This was done through the United States Veterans' Bureau located in Char lotte. Of course, the same thing has been going on all over the country and is still going on. Many of those who got the money were need of it and spent it for useful purposes. Some of it was wast ed, of course, but anyway 1t all got into circula tion and |terhaps helped to some extent to stimu late business. It all goes to show, though, that war is a mighty costly business.— Beaufort News. The several thousand graduates who are being turned out of the colleges and universities in our State tliis week will, in many cases, find it hard to find a place. The schools are full, and a thousand of the teachers in them are to be turned out and be added the young army who are anxious to find a place to start life and make a living, only to find too many lawyers, too many doctors, too many book keepers, too many clerks, too many merchants, too many people for the jobs. The result will finally be that all those who are faithful, diligent, and willing to do their best will soon find jobs and be absorbed in the machine of progress.
