AND ON SUCH A COLD NIGHT,
A goodly number of Kiwanians
journeyed down to Winston-Salem
Monday night over a week ago, to
take in the Forsyth County fair as
the guests of the Winston-Salem Ki
wanis club, and to say that they
were royally entertained would be
putting it mildly.
After a banquet at the Robert B.
Lee hotel, the visiting Kiwanians
were put aboard a fleet of Grey
hound busses and driven in style to
the fair grounds to winess a preview
of the Winter Garden Revue, staged
in front of the grand stand.
The busses carried us all Into the
fair grounds and then the leader of
the group directed the way through
the rear of one of the midway tents,
the crowd emerging upon the mid
way from the tent entrance. And
you may imagine their surprise,
when, upon turning to look back at
the tent from which we had Just
come, the following words, em
blazoned large across its entrance
In gaudy paint met our eyes:

MUTTER AND MUMBLE..
Could it be that some folks don't
like to see their names in this col
umn because the sub-head at the
top reads: "Much About Nothing?"
Perhaps "Nothing About Much"
would be more appropriate . . . We

Methodist Sunday school, is of the
opinion that a chjurch is not neces
sarily a place to exhibit a long face
in. He evidently feels that God
meant for His people to enjoy life
insofar that they do so without sin
and he's building his Sunday school
program for the year to that end
with the injection of a little life
and pep that should draw attendance
because folks WANT to go and not
because they feel that it's their
duty. In our estimation the people
who go to church or Sunday school
simply for show and no other rea
son, are wasting their time. You

WHAT WE HAVE FORGOTTKN
(This article, taken from the
front page of the Christian Advo
cate, and written by Dr. P. P. Clax
ton, former member of the faculty
of North Carolina College at
Greensboro, goes to show that many
who will be instrumental in bring
ing liquor back to this state will be
doing so without realizing Just
what it will mean if iron bound re
strictions are not placed around its
manufacture and sale).
"The memories of people are
short. Most o>f us seem to have
forgotten conditions befort the days
of prohibition. We have forgotten
how the streets oX cities and coun
try highways were not safe for wo
men on Saturday afternoons. We
have forgotten the drunken men
reeling in and out saloon doors and
down the streets, running their
horses on the country roads or ly
ing drunk on the sidewalks or by
the roadside. We have .forgotten
the long lists of drunks in police
and magistrates' courts on "Monday
and other days.
"We have forgotten the drunken
brawls at all kinds of public gath
erings, including political meetings,
election days, picnics and dances,
and the frequent interruptions of
church services by drunken men.
We have forgotten the drunken
men on trains and at railway sta
tions and their frequent nauseating
vomiting. We have forgotten ine
briate public banquets where prom
inent men were left under the ta
ble or hauled home. We have for
gotten the red light districts and
brothels where women sold whisky
as well as their bodies and souls.
We have forgotten the dance halls
with bar rooms attached.
"We have forgotten the bar
roqms near to legislative halls and
the very elegant one at the door of
the house of representatives in the
capitol at Washington. We have
forgotten the quite commop ap
proach of salesmen to their custo
mers by setting up to the drinks.
We have forgotten the drunken men
in the lobbies of hotels. We hare
forgotten the large number of
young men In all ranks of society
and especially In the higher ranks
who became drunken sots and went
to the dogs.
"Older people forget. Younger
people do not—cannot—remember
conditions and things that happen
ed before they were born.

"We have forgotten the domina

number of bootleggers and illicit
distillers, little if at all less com

are now. We have forgotten the

liquor, that's another question.
Prohibition has been a failure, they
say, but no one can truthfully say
that conditions are as bad under
prohibition as they are pictured in

If, when whisky comes back, our
-legislators are able to work oat a
plan of control that will really coar
trol and improve the whisky situ
ation, we are for repeal. But if
their deliberations are guided by
thoughts of revenue alone and they
tax liquor so heavy that the average
man must continue to patroniz-e his
favorite bootlegger, then we can't
see what will be gained. It will
mean that more liquor will be
available, and that's about all.
For that reason we can't under
stand why a plan of control is not
put before the people before the
question is submitted to vote in
stead of after the horse is out of
the stable. You never hear of big
game hunters first finding their
quarry and then running back to
camp after their gun.
