THE EASTERTIDE OF MAN'S
HOPES AND ASPIRATIONS I
Two thousand years ago darkness
enveloped the world ? the darkness of
sin and idol worship, smug satisfac
tion and exaggerated self-esteem.
Time and time again, down through
the ages, even the chosen people of
God violated their trust and repudi
ated their covenants with Him. Wor
ship had become an empty form, and
void of any real feeling and lacking
in all sincerity. Then came the
mighty of the earth. His advent into
the world was in most mysterious
manner; His life here wa3 magnify
cent in its simplicity, and His going
back was the miraculous event of
the world's history.
He suffered that others might es
di<d that others
t.?b to emphasize the darkness of
death, and was resurrected as dem
onstration of the power of the Father
and ascended unto the throne to await
the coming of those who would follow.
In commemoration of this august
and sublime event, we observe next
Sunday as Easter Sunday, and count
less millions of people will face the
Kast and in the rising sun of Sun
day morning see the face of Him who
arose from the tomb of darkness to
become the light of the world.
Ail nature joins in re-enacting this
scene, and from the tomb of winter's
cold and rain and snow comes the
resurrection of all plant life, and
bursting buds give way for the com
ing of the flower and the blossom to
bedeck the earth with adorning
Cannot we, then, as the sorts of
the Great Father and younger broth
ers of the Great Brother, cast aside
the stone which has so long sealed
the tomb of hate and malice and jeal
ousies, and come forth a resurrected
and re-made community of men, ad
ding the beauty of brotherhood, the
fragrance of the flower of friend
ship, and the comforting influence of
comradeship to Nature's beauty all
Let us invite Him to walk with us
and talk with us just now, and make
this occasion a real Eastertide of
man's hopes and aspirations.

HURRAH FOR HURRAY!
APRIL 15th, AND FISHING.
Even an April Fool wouldn't be
fool enough to work April 15th.
Just mark that date on your calen
dar right now, and make plans to
leave the old job go hang, and lay
aside the worries of the day, grab
your hook and rod, and join your
neighbors on the fishing spree.
April 15th is the great day, for
that is the day and date when the
citizens of this land of the free and
?the home of the brave are free and
footloose to go fishing, even in their
own creeks and along their own river
It is believed that many hundreds
of people from other sections will be
in this county on that date, for the
fishing here is so much better than
can be found in any other section of
Western North Carolina that great
hosts of people are already set to
make the mad rush for favorite
streams on this the opening day of
the 1931 fishing season.
Dr. Zachary, John Smith, the Simp
son boys, Jerry Jerome, Doc Galloway,
Red Misenheimer, the Englishes, and
a small army of enthusiasts are al
ready counting the days and hours
until one a. m., April 16th.

JUDGE NOT, LEST YE BE
LIKEWISE JUDGED .
How often do we let our likes and
dislikes, our personal grudges and
narrow, hidebound views, blind us to
the great things in life!
All of us are guilty of this weakness
in varying degrees.
Something of real importance, of
genuine worth, is to ?e acted upon in
a community. The matter demands
intense activity on the part of some
one in taking the lead, and plans are
thought out and presented to the peo
Do we sit down and. study such
plans in the light of reason, and from
the standpoint of what would be best
for all of us?
Too often this is not the case at
all. We do not like some fellow who
has been instrumental in making the
plans, and immediately*W begin lam
basting the. whole proposition ? not
because we think the proposition is
bad, for we have given little or no
thought to the plan. We oppose it
simply because So-and-So had some
thing to do with formulating it. We
do not like the fellow, hence anything
that he has anything to do with must
be crushed to the earth.
"I am against that thing, because
So-and-So has some axe to grind, and
he will make something out of it,
dern him, and dern Kim again.'
It matters not, Wien, how many
aged men and womeJi, and how many
little children, may be dependent up
on a community proposition. We think
nothing of their interests in the mat
ter. No, no. All that some of us can
think about is sitting in judgment
upon the man whom we dislike. That
is of greater importance to many of
us than the helpless, hopeless condi
tion of the aged, or the blighted op
portunities of youth.
Let us lay aside our puny judg
ments for a while, and study plans
and propositions solely upon their
merits. We are not capable of pass
ing judgment upon the other fellow.
The greatest teacher of all ages has
said so, when He said: "Jijdge not,
lest ye be judged by the same judg
ment." None of us are intellectual
giants, you know. Take yourself for
instance. Think it over. Look into
the mirror right now, and see if you
behold the reflection of a Solomon.
Be honest in your examination of
yourself, and you will admit that you
see nothing but the reflection of a
very ordinary human being, selfish,
self-centered, egotistic, whose judg
ments are formed because of likes and
dislikes, rather than upon the merits
of the man or the measure which you
would sit in judgment upon.
Let us look upon measures and
movements in the light of what is best
for all people in the community.
Come the Easter flurry one day
soon, and then Spring, real Spring,
will be here, thank goodness. There's
been more mud, and muddier mud,
and deeper mud, and stickier mud this
winter than John ever saw. Come on,
Miss Spring, and flirt with us. We'll
all fall for you, good and hard.

CROP OUTLOOK FOR STATE OF
< (Reported by Crop Reporting
Service of North Carolllha)
Any improvement in crop prices)
will be quite gradual and may not be '
noticeable until the fall months of
1931. Production costs of crops will
definitely be lower than last year.
Fertilizer usage 'drill be materially
decreased. Labor prices are lower.
Farmers are growing more of their
feeds and foods. The improvement of
economic conditions has thus already
begun. Foreign demands are expected
to improve this year. It will be diffi
cult to get credits for producing
j It must not be overlooked that there
are large surplus or carry-over of
i stocks now on hand for wheat, cotton
'and tobacco. The general business
| depression is a real factor. The cul
tivated acreage of all crops will be
| about the same as for 1930 ? may be
Corn comes first in acreage (one
third of crop land in North Carolina).
The farmers plan for a further in
crease in acreage amounting to 7 per
cent in 'North Carolina. It had been
increased 12 percent during the past
two years. This state produces no
? real surplus of corn. Much more will
be required if we are to grow the
needed livestock. This is a wise and
safe expansion. It will grow in any
county and legumes may bo grown
economically with the corn. The Corn
Belt supply is the shortest for twenty
I -ip '"-ars. due to drought conditions,
i The United States crop is expected to
be increased 4.9 percent in acreage
The carry-over or surplus stocks ?t
' flue-cured tobacco ss now the greatest
j in the history of the world. North
Carolina alone produced about 80,
000,000 pounds more than in 1929.
The bright leaf total production is
! about 850,000,000 pounds. Three is a
.real large surplus over the demand,
The nrice average for the season was
?slightly over 12 cents, as compared
'with 16 cents a year ago. A gradual
! decline has occurred since 1926, when
an average of 26 cents was paid tc
i farmers. Even with a large decrease
| in acreage for 19317 no improvemeni
,in price is probable. Even a near ap
proach to the 1930 production ma>
mean ruinous prices or less than 1C
i Many tobacco farmers are claiming
that plants are really scarce and fer
tilizers reduced. These are regulai
excuses. The only hope is for higr
I grades. A maximum effort on a lit
I tie acreage is essential for this. Ther
the demand for cigarettes has defin
itely declined for the first time lr
1 The tobacco acreage "intention" i;
!for a 7 percent reduction for Nortt
Carolinas flue-cured tobacco and 5.1
! percent increase for the Burley crop
This is not nearly enough reductior
j to stop the decline in prices.
The peanut crop was short of tht
1 usual requirements in 1930, largclj
due to drought conditions. The con
Isumer demand also declined. Then
! seems to be room for a slight increasi
; in acreage for this crop. The presenl
: probabilities indicate about 15 per
| cent increase in North Carolina ant
1 30.7 percent for the United States.
Potato prices were reasonably gooc
last year in North Carolina. This
would normally result in an appreci
able increase in acreage this year
?The January intended acreage showec
6 percent increase for the country at
i large and about 20 percent for early
potatoes in this state. The March in
tentions show 12 nercent increase
i (North Carolina) . Many authorities
! anticipate disappointing prices il
these increases are harvested.
More food and feed crops are need
led in this state. We do not grow
; nearly enough small grains of any
kind. Large increases seem to be in
prospect for harvest this year. Un
saleable surplus productions should
be held for a demand which should
occur by the fall months. The state
! acreage changes are: Wheat 35 pev
jcent increase; oats 30 percent! rye 20
j percent and barley 40 percent in
f crease of the 1930 harvests. Price
jnrospects are low for wheat, due to
large surplus stocks brought over
from last year.
j The hog industry seems to hr.v> in
prospect a more favorable position
during the last half of the year. This
lis due to the smaller supplies, lower
'feed costs and probable increase de

;off 9 percent from a year earlier. The
! 1931 spring farrowings are expected
| to be increased 13 percent in North
j JJay and pasturage will stand ex
pansion. as the 1930 crop was the
| smallest for "the United States in thir
teen years. North Carolina still buys
| considerable hay.althought much more
| has been grown in recent years. Paled
hays are better for feeding and sale,
but requirements should be the first
aim. Livestock production is now a
'safe market for hays, feed crops and
god pasturage. These require a min
jimum of labor, fertilizers and stor
age facilities. The farmers indicate
jthat North Carolina will increase its
hay acreages about 12 percent, as
| compared with 1 percent for the coun
try at large.
\ The prospects for fruit and truck
j cross. arc varied. Most growers are
optimistic of prices this year. Only
the general depression will hold peach
and strawberry prices down. The
production of these crops depend
largely on weather conditions. Con
ditions have been favorable for plant
ing of truck c? >ps, but the cool
weather may resp'rt in much compoti- j
tion between F .h Carolina, North j
Carolina and . >rginia harvests. Late |

BRAVE LAD AND LASSIS ON
AH the world loves a lover who le"ts
nothing interfere with the course of
true love, regardless of its distance
and the roughness of the road. A mar
riage was performed in Brevard last
week which demonstrated a love that
laughs not only at locksmiths, but at
doctors, preachers, automobilists, and
any and everything else that 'gets in
i A young man living in Greenville
loved a lassie who lived in the Cedar
Mountain section of this county. And
the lassie loved the lad, of this there
is no doubt. The young man, ^like
millions of other men, ypung, old, and
middle-aged, was not so flush with
money, yet rich in love. He wanted
to marry the lady of his choice, and
she wanted him to marry her. He
could stand it no longer, this being
away from his lady-love, and, not
having a tin lizzie, he proceeded to
walk from his South Carolina home
to the home of creation's most beauti
ful creature, up there on top of the
world, at Cedar Mountain. ,
Now, the little lady ? was just as
brave as the young man. Together
they walked into Brevard, found the
court house, told Mrs. Jess Galloway,
in the register's office, that they had
come for no other purpose hut that
of obtaining the necessary papers
that would, in the hands of the minis
ter, make them man an<l wife. They
were informed that it would be neces
sary for them to have a health cer
tificate from the physician. They
found Dr. Charles Newland, who is
sued the certificate, and made a nom
inal charge of one dollar for the two
i papers. Back to the register's offic:
they went, and, to their dismay
found that they lacked one dollar ol
having the necessary amount to' pay
for the marriage license. But vh."'
' was a small matter. They went bael*
to Dr. Newland and told him that
they needed the dollar which they had
1 just paid him, so they could get tht
' license. Dr. Newland forked over the
? dollar, which he had not had time tc
1 spend, and the courageous couple hiec
I themselves back to the register's of
I fice and obtained the coveted paper.

case, or circumstances, rather, anc

Since the Universal Credit company

financing costs on Ford products have
been reduced generally so that it is
? estimated that during the past thirty
months, purchasers of Ford prod-icts
on time have been able to save in ex

This has been accomplished by
means of standardized office opera
tions on an extremely large scale and
by the specializing of Universal
Credit Company in the financing of
the products of Ford Motor company
.exclusively, together with the used
cars which may have been taken in
trade by Ford dealers. It has been
; possible to effect many economies due
to this standardisation, not only in
