KIWANIS CLUB IN INTERESTING MEET ? ?????? Rev. J. H. West, program chairman, planned a meeting for the- Kiwanis club last Thursday which held the keenest interest of the members of the club, all of whom wefe present except two, and these were , out of town. "Business Ethics" w?s the sub ject of the meeting, and speaking with the program chairman were R. P. Tharp and Dr. Chas. L. Newland. An Interesting event of the meet ing was endorsement of a resolution protesting the enactment of the Buncombe County horse and dog rac ing bill. This' action of the club was immediately wired to Senator E. L. McKfee, at Raleigh, who led the tight in the upper house against the bill. Frank D. Clement, often mentioned in connection with the race for mayor in Btevard in the coming primary and election, made request that the club -members discourage such talk as much as possible, on account of the fact that he could not, under any cir cumstances, enter the race for mayor. THARP'S APPEAL R. F. Tharp made a strong pleu to the club members to work in closer h.-ii-r. i'iiy an citizens of the town, de claring that harmonious action and a fair spirit of real co-operation would be beneficial to the town and to the individual citizens. Kiwanis is a group of men supposed to be working to gether, he said, and before men can v u Ihcr they must get to gether. To be a friend to other men, a man first prepares his own heart for the high office of friendship. To bo friendly, Mr. Tharp said, .one r ' ii'*. and be cheerful, and let the other man know that you are his V handclasp is worth much, and costs nothing, and the speaker urgui a more general handshaking. One man cannot do great harm to an other man whose hand he often .sh.-kt s, he said. Mr. Tharp urged the members to Intl. timi off once in a while and visit other fellows in their office or place of business, and have friendly chats with one another. Jn this way the little things that creep into com I'siti' i:f" in be discussed, threshed out, and much hard feelings eliminat ed. And then .continued Mr. Tharp, when we see n fellow down and out, or down in the dumps, go to him and cheer him up. It will not only help the man him.-elf, but will be ji bless ing the oho doing such noble and friendly acts. Oil. SEW LAS D HEARD D;-. Charles L. Newland spoke on the i :vit mpie that members of the Ki wanis club should set to the citizens of tiu' community. This depression now existing ought to be a great les son to all citizens, the physician said, and when times begin to improve, all citizei ? ought to begin laying plans of preparation to avert another such time occurring. There should be more determined spirit among all citi zen 1 ? lay aside a portion of their earnings to use in times of dull or slm i; business, lie stressed the im portance of saving, and the planning and building, and urged the club members to work together for the good of all the town. Rev. J. II. West delivered a most ef fective address on "Community Eth ics. ' which follows: Obligations of Citizenship One of the greatest men that ever lived was bold to declare that he was a debtor. It takes a brave man to openly declare that. Now his mean ing is that he owed somebody, lie nn ant that as a citizen ho was under obligation, since he was a debtor, to meet the responsibility squarely. He meant that he was in debt to the civilized, and uncivilized, to the wise and to the unwise. The man that said that had a vision of world citi zenship. We are living in ah age when very man should feel that he is a world citizen. 1'ut you cannot be a woi .! n'izen without being a com munity citizen. The man that tries to lie world citizen without being a community citizen is a community liability. This world citizenship applied to life in its various relationships is the vital thing needed to meet the perils of modern civilization. If all the com munities in the world were good com munities, this would be the best world the world has ever seen. One of the major troubles in every com munity, is divided community inter ests. This is mighty bad ethics, so bad that it is utterly impossible wiie this division exists to have a constructive program. It is so unethi cal that no community can be prosper ous while such condition exists. You can't run a bank, a mill, a store or any commercial industry or civic or ganization. You can't run a home, a church, a school on a code of ethics like this. The test of community ethics is community harmony, community good will, mutual helpfulness. Now we may not be willing to ac knowledge it, but the denial of it would not change the stubborn fact ? and the fact is this-that every one of us with every citizen of this town is a debtor, we are under obligation, we owe somebody, in i'act we owe every body. We may not owe everybody 1 money, but we do owe everybody some-, thing that is more valuable than money. Hffiijfl First? We owe every organization in town that deserves to live and prosper our cooperation. Every man 1 and organization in Brevard and and Transylvania county, that is an asset to the county and town, deserves our sympathetic coope ration, and wo are very poor citizens if we withhold this, cooperation. Second ? There is another thing that Community Ethics demands of 1 its citizens, and it is also a debt, and ! a debt poorly paid. We don't love , folks just like we want them to love us. Here is the philosophy of what I j mean. in a nutshell: One big family! writing another big family after the I following order- "Dear folT??, It you and your folks love mc and lr.y folks i like m< and my folks love you and your folks there never were folks that '\tv FIFTH.

They have al ready brokeji all records by stayinir in session two weeks over the norma! time, with slim prospects of getting away in another two weeks. "Eastei is the most promising prediction now. | The Assembly has reached its low est ebb. Members are talkative, touch ous, and irritable. They have spent two and. three hour sessions in pass ing one or two bills and probably tabling fis many more. All want to talk and dissect every bill. The? question each others motives con stantly, and often justly. There is* -'i sort of Back-wash oves passing bilk that now seeks to kill them. During the next two weeks, predictions are they will buckle down and dig out ot he maze which enshrouds them. The past week has been spent in part in marking time, awaiting the Finance bill which has been promised almost daily. It is now in final form and was taken up early in the week by the House, which will spend most of this week on it before it gits to the Sennte for probably another week. Both of the houses, meanwhile, will be getting other legislation behind them. Another big bill is the Ap propriations measure, which also will require time. It will doubtless move along behind the Revenue biH. TTio op_>. hag p t. about 10, 0(H) degrees xarennen. j King George of England now pre- 1 fers a pipe to cigars. ROSMAN GROUP IN GREAT MpiNC . (C lax ton Henderson, Reporter) The Bosnian Y. T. H. F..gave one of the most enjoyable and instructive programs in chapel Friday .March 20 that has been given this year. Ev ery Friday morning some class in school entertains by having chargc <rf the chapel program. The Y. T. H. F. changed the routine by giving a debate. The query was: "Resolvec that Vocational Agriculture is a more> useful Course 'of Study for High School Boys to take than Foreign Language." Ralph Galloway* and Claxton Henderson represented the affirmative and Ral^Ji Burt and Rob ert Gravely the negative. Paul Whit mire was acting president and E. J Wllitmire secretary. Judges were' Miss Jameson, Mr. Moore and Mr. Cline. I The boys had prepared their debate well and considerable interest wa: manifested in the subject. While lis tening to the speeches, one's mind could not keep from going back t last fall during the campaign when similar heated discussions were held around over the country. The speak ers were frequently interrupted and the trueness of tehir statements ques tioned by their opponent, and it v. a only by President. Paul Whitmire's constant use of the gavel that order was maintained. The judges had very hard iime deciding which sidv. won the debate, yet while listening to i some special music rendered by th. boys' Junior Glee Club, they finally decided in favor of the affirmative. The Y. T. H. F. are very busy now assembling facts and writing up the practices they are going to carry oil! in their farm projects this year. Th new system of potato culture is bein;: ? given consideration, though they real ize that it will take several years ; get any real results, since the prepar ation of the soil is the first essentia! which requires years of work and study.

GARDNER OPPOSED TO SALES TAX IN ANY FORM WHATEVER (Continued from page one) MacLean bill itself does not purport to take all off property, even for the" constitutional term of public schools. Based on last year's expenditures, it would be necessary to ?levy for the total support of the six months term an average rate of nearly 25 cents in every county, after receiving the full benefit of the revenue provided to carry out the MacLean bill. To meet the total cost of current expense alond, it would be necessary to levy an additional rate in many counties. This phase of this problem is not generally understood by the public. It should be clearly understood by each of you " "1 have a definite philosophy about the needs of Norfh Carolina, and ev ' ery recommendation I made to you and every bill presented by me for your consideration was motivated by only one definite purpose; namely, economy, efficiency and tax reduction on property. I have not pressed a single measure before you th,-. did not have a terminal ih th object ive. .' " "If for this we can substitute the psychology of patience together with real economy and real saying; if we can as governments and as individu als become willing to live on l"ss. to live hard if you will; if v.r e:.:i raise more of the consumption ? ? ? < '.hat we now purchase; if we can do more work, economize, cut hep and cut there, we will emerge fr i ? iod a chastened but a miuering people " "You may differ with me, and I knew some of you will; V' -i may doubt the wisdom of my r <? mmenda 1 tion, and some of you vi'i: y?u may question my leadership, an 1 Tr.any of you may; but you cannot in ! \:th say that according to m'y cone, pt'on of the welfare of the three million peo ple that we aie planni; * . ,-r . .
