We received a communication from
a party, this Week, stating that he
had been coming to Tryon for many
years to get away from the hard ce
ment walks of the city, only to find
that we had the same kind here, and
says that he has made his last trip
here on that account. Oh, goodness,
godness, Agnes, can we stand such a
calamity as this? Will it be possible
for Tryon to stand the shock? In
all seriousness, we believe that Tryon
will be much better off without the
company of any such person; one that
is so narrow-minded and little as this
had better arrange to spend their va
cations at Mushy-Mush Podunk or
Possum Trot, where they can find all
the red soil and mother earth that
they desire to tread on.
Are there any sugar "slackers" in
this region? A woman on being told
that she could have 25 pounds for
canning, provided she would promise
not io use it at tne table said that
she wouldn't dare to agree to that.
Another got her 25 pounds by telling
how she and a neighbor were croinfir
into competition over the numbers of
cans they would put up. Later when
the neighbor was asked about results
denied going into any such arrange
ment, and that the sugar buyer was
doing any canning whatsoever. It is
- 1 1 IT ,
risKy uusiness. uncie bam is very
severe with hoarders, and those who
pinch and save are very likely to re
port those they find putting by sugar
instead of putting up fruit.
County Food Administrator Bacon
is now having his troubles. Since
the late sugar ruling has gone into
effect he is daily besieged by those
wanting more sugar than the ruling
allows. The most frequent excuse,
and the one which by the way is worn
threadbare, is that the children re
quire more than three pounds of su
gar per montn. Mr. Bacon was
heard to tell one person who came to
him with that excuse Wednesday,
that was quite likely, and that the
older people would doubtless have to
deny themselves in order to give the
children more. True patriotism is
now undergoing the "acid test." If
you are a true-blue, genuine Ameri
can you Will make no complaint, but
go ahead and cheerfully comply with
the sugar and all other rulings of the
food administration and thank the
stars that you are in the United
States where you can get three
pounds per month of sugar, instead
of in 'England or France where they
are allowed but one-half pound per
week. Take your medicine and don't
whine about it. Y'ou are no better
than millions of those who bow in sub
mission to the dictates of Mr. Hoover
and say "Go ahead, Mr. Hoover, wc
are with you." The time is at hand
w'hen the true patriot can be easily
picked out from the make-believe.
There are those who have whooped
and hurrahed, but now that the
REAL TEST is here, are showing
themselves in their true light. Don't
say that you CAN T get along with
less sugar than the ruling allows,
Cfor you will have to anyway) but
