SAYS VETERANS IN i
DISTRESS NEED AID
Buleigh, Nov. 2 ? Compensation
now being paid to veterans, or depen
dents Of deceased veterans, for death
ud disability incurred in war service
is probably not sufficient, and should ,
be increased," said Frank Page j
Chairman of the North Csrolfcia j
JS ranch of the National Economy '
League, in a measure replying to
?haiges that the League is "after",
disabled service men.
"Many of the veterans who incur
red disability in actual war service
are now being neglected, and should j
be given more consideration at the(
Sands of an appreciative govern- (
went," Mr. Page said. "We are in no
sense raising objection to the amount
?f money the Federal government is
paying to these disabled men and to
the families of those killed in action.
"But," said Mr. Page, "we are out
with the firm intention of wiping
from the federal payroll those thous
ands of former service men who,
coming through the war unscathed
ami probably in better health than
when they entered, have incurred
some disability in civilian life which
bad no connection with their war ser
vice whatever. An applicative govern
ment is not one that will continue
pe; r.-.ents of huge sums to the men
win happened to some disability in
rivi: life, just because they wore?the
?n;, ; im for a period, either in active
?r ? her service,
"The huge- sum of 5452.000,000 is
sow being paid, for this fiscal year
1932-33, to veterans and families of
deceased veterans who sustained no
injury whatever in war service, but
who incurred some injury in civilian
life. This includes $109,000,000 to
those v iio were in the War with
Spain, the balance going to World
War Veterans, except small amounts
for hospitalization, new hospital con
struction and administration.
"While the actual war-service dis
abled veterans are probably being
neglected, and will receive only $274,
000,000 this year, nearly twice that
amount i? being wasted on non-ser
vice connected, civilian, disability.
This is a waste that should be stop
ped, an appendix that should be re
moved. a parasite that is sucking the
resources of our nation. It is our pur
pose to see that such leeches are re
moved, so the life blood of onr coun
try will not be completely drained
and thus render it more ready prey
to every grasping group." said Mr.
CHARCOAL FOR POULTRY
For years poultrymen have fed
fharcoal to poultry. It has long been
known for its ability to absorb and
tarry out of the digestive system cer

A Paris Cable
From the Paris office of Harper'? ;

some of the high spots. Colors are a
"go as you please" affair with clash
ing combinations important. The
Princess line and the belted silhoutte
shar? honors. Sleeves show wide va
riety of treatment. There's heaps cf
fur trimming, and separate furs in
cluding quantities of muffs. Fur tails
are being used for trimmings as ba3
been noted in this column before. Fur
blouses with suits are new. Gloves
are suede, glace, pigskin, velvet arid
velveteen. Coats are both of the red
ingote type and straight, evening
wraps long and stately. There are
jacket suits or ones with three quar
ter length coats, occassionally cut
along swagger lines. And loads of
simple wool frocks. Hats are still
worn well on the head, their square
crowns developing an upward move

of the coiffure. As to shoes, pumps
and oxfords are foremost. Black is

THE PRAYER CORNER
(From the fit* of lunp ago)
"Whosoever shall compel thee to go
one mile, go with him two." ? Matt.
I have been reading lately about
The Second Mile, and it so impressed
me, that I must share my reading
'"Sooner or later every man ar.d,

?while poets may sing their songs of
pathos over the fact, practical people
have a more serious problem: to find,
out, that is, how a man or woman
ought to face life's compulsions, in
what attitude of mind they shou.d
meet the most of the world. And
Jesus said: Whosoever shall compel
thee to go one mile go with him two.
"At first sight, that is about the
strangest prescription for the trouble
one could well imagine. It. proceeds
upon the homeopathic principle, that
"like things cure like," ano would
drive out the poison of a disease by
injecting more of the same kind, it

your own free will go two, :t says,
and so defeat the malice of the neces
sity by voluntarily going it one better.
"Indeed it is clear that if the earth
should say to two plants in a garden,
"You must grow," and if one plant
should accept the bare necessity and
sullenly grow its stint, and no more,
that would be slavish business with
no glory in it. But if its companion
should say: "It is my delight to pow.
Come on, 0 earth, with all your boun
ty. You say I must grow, but lo, I am
twice as willing as you are to make
me." That would be a free plant with
worth and distinction in its growing.
It is found true at even a cursory
glance, that the sting of compulsion
is gone when a man or woman is
twice as willing to act as necessity to
"Among all the ways in which we
feel the hand of compulsion upon our
shoulder, none is more inescapable
than the compulsion of time. This is
the most inevitable of all inevitable
things. This show1 inevitabler.ess of
time is a small matter indeed to the
youth, but it puts compulsion on a
man or woman not easy to be glad of.
"How many men and women rebel
against, this inevitable fatality o.i
growing old. How they fret over de
clining powers and grudgingly submit
to limitation. Because they take it so,
because they enter their cramped
confines with such ill grace, they
make a sorry business out of age with
never a touch of Rabbi Ben tzras
mellow and radient spirit:
"Grow old along with me,
The best is yet to be."
The last of life for which the
first was made."
Rabbi Ben Ezra had the spirit of
The Second Mile. His years were no
le3s inplaeable in their compulsion,
i and his limitations no les3 corking
than is the lot of other men, but he
could see in both years and limita

Washington. ? Back in 1930 when
the last census was taksn, ex
actly 12,048,762 families in the Unit
ed States had a radio.
They constituted 40.3 per cent of
the country's nearly 30 million fami
lies. The census bureau published an
analysis showing that native whites
led in radio ownership, with 44.4 per
cent; foreign-born whites followed
clocely with 43.8 per cent, while only!
7.5 per cent of negro families could
boast a set.
Urban families had the edge on the
country folks, 50 percent of them be
ir.g equipped, while only 21 per cent
of the farm families hod the world
