HOW ABOUT MAKING A FEW OF 'EM PAY
Two summer visitors here for the .summer
Tiade the remark last week that never in all
their lives had they seen as much spitting on the
sidewalks in any town as there was in Way
"Not only is it unsanitary, and unsightly,
but it is a good way to keep vi.-ltora away,"
"Instead of stepping to the curb, most of
the people turn the other way," they continued,
Now that seems to be a rather bad state
of affairs when such a condition threatens to
drive tourists away that the Chamber of Com
merce and others -have worked so hard to get
In the first place, if we had no visitors, it
seems that we should have more self respect
and pride than to spit upon the sidewalks. If
it were not one of the filthiest habits that one
could have it certainly is unsightly, as the visi
WaynesviUe has an ordinance against spit
ting or the sidewalks, and perhaps if the police
department would make a few arrests and see
that they were given a. fine, some of this
excess spitting would g into ; the gutters in
stead of on.. th.e , sidewalks;'. At U-a-t it would
be worth trying.
RELIEF AND RELIEF
Whenever a man does the bet he can and
then it. becomes necessary for him to call upon
the relief agencies for help everybody sympa
thizes with him,; but the professional deadbeat
ought to be apprehended and put to work if
there is any way in the World of. doing it. And
there are professional deadbeats that impose
upon welfare officers every chance they get. For
instance, read the following from the Laurin-.
burg exchange :
"According to common report people have
been coming to the emergency relief office here
in automobiles to get free Irish potatoes. The
potatoes were bought by the government for
distribution among unemployed and others in
need. Similarly the government has bought
and distributed string beans and other products
on a large scale, with the double purpose of
helping the producer who had no market . and
the consumer who was unable .to buy what he
needed. . But persons who come to the relief
office in automobiles to get Irish potatoes will
not get much sympathy from those who work
and make their own way, paying taxes as they
go. Irish, potatoes do well here. With even a
minimum effort almost any family could pro
duce an abundance of potatoes could have
done it this reason. The price of a very few
gallons of gasoline would; buy the seed, A small .
plot of ground would be sufficient, and a little,
work would get. the. results.. . Any everybody
would, have, potatoes. But they haven't and
that's one thing that's wrong with the country
todav.'' Marshville Home.
MISS CORD LEADING THE LIST
A movement is underway in the state to
have Miss Beatrice Cobb, editor and publisher
of the Morganton News-Herald, named as a
member of the Democratic National Committee,
to succeed Mrs. T. Palmer Jerman. of Charlotte,
who recently resigned. .
For a number of years she has been secretary-Treasurer
of the North Carolina Press As
sociation, and was recently named secretary of
the State Democratic Convention. She has the

Others have been mentioned, but none men-,

JUDGE PLESS HARD ON SLOT MACHINE
Judge J. Will Pless, Jr., has certainly put
his foot down on slot machines in this county,
declaring that the machines take bread from
children, because those who play the machines
are not usually able to provide their families
with the necessities of life.
Sheriff Lowe was ordered by Judge Pless
to break up and destroy every machine that he
caught, and to keep half of the money found in
them and give the other to the poor of the coun
ty. The trend over the state is to do away en
tirely with the slot machines, as they are never
fair. Sometimes a person gets more from them
than he puts into them, but the chances are
he'll lose, because the machines are so made
as to give back only a few dollars for every $40
Several weeks ago we received through
the mail a catalog from a concern which fea
tured slot machines. In their advertisement
they state that the machine cleared about $35
of each $50 taken in.
From a reliable source, The Mountaineer
was told that the slot machines that have been
in use in WaynesviUe are at present hidden
under counters and other places until court ad
journs. The plans seem to be to bring them
out again after Saturday.
MORE W AYS THAN THE LASH OF TEACH
ING A LESSON
The subject of corporal punishment has
been thrust to the front by the publicity given
to the whipping of a boy in the Jackson Train
ing school last week. The boy, White Good
man, of Winston-Salem, claims to have been
cruelly beaten and photographs were taken of
him to prove the charges. Governor Ehring
haus has been asked to have the matter thor
We presume that -this will be done. The
task of- handling a large group of boys who
could not be managed .-singly i- no easy task.
An institution for that 'purpo,.? should' be man
aged by a group of experts. The men in charge
should', be men of the highest training in the
field Of youthful delinquency';'; As a rule the
whipping of a boy or a girl by parent, teacher
Ar, supervisor is an admission of ignorance. They
are whipped because the one in charge does not
know what else to do. The infraction of a rule
call- for punishment and an easy form is the
strap and strap it is. It is a pity if an official
at one of our state institutions beat a boy un
mercifully; but it is a far greater pity if we.
have those in charge of boys 'aha girls who are
not trained and otherwise qualified to develop
the best that is in them.
Human kindness and a sympathetic, in
telligent understanding will go a long way fur
ther iu the making of tlu righi kind of man or
woman out of a boy or a girl than the severest
kind nf a beating. We are not "saying that in
certain instances that corporal punishment is
not the best method that we know, but when it
is resorted to it is a confession on our part that
we are, as yet. ignorant of the best. method.
Those who guard our prisoners need to
know more than how to shoo: straight and those
in charge of children, whether in .school, orpha.
nage or penal institution, need to know other
ways of correction than the strap. People in
charge of growing youth should, be the type
of people Who car. manage without cruelty.

. The Morganton News-Herald carried the
following timely warning last week under, the.
heading "A Warning Against; Schemes." , , It
is timely and we pass it on to our readers:
The News-Herald, in all sincerity, to save
a lot of people from themselves, raises a red
flag of danger and warning to those who are
disposed, to grab at every scheme, smooth plan,
to make quick money, the sole purpose of which...
is to filch from the unsuspecting their hard-
earned dollars. . .
The old proverbs have it, "Beware of the
Greek? bearing gifts." and "Beware of the
geese when the fox preaches." Beware of all
schemes to make money quick. Make inquiries
about the reliability of all stocks, and
other things before you invest. All that glitters
is not gold. It is better to inform yourself, and
keep your eyes open, rather than invest in
everything that is offered you, and be sorry
afterwards. See if the traveling salesmen are
licensed. Reliable information on all these
schemes is being forearmed for the likelihood
of losing your money. You cannot be too cau
tious about things offered you by strangers.
