Chapel Hill, N. C., Aug. 10.—
- The largest summer school iu the
history of the University and of
the State was formally closed Au
gust 5, and the great majority of
the nearly 1,200 students left
Chapel Hill for thoir homes. A
number of teachers who took State
examinations for teach era' certifi
cates remained two days longer.
Still at the University, how
ever, are more than a score of
social workers whose course in the
public welfare institute will not
'he finished until the first week in
September, and some 50-odd stu
dents in the summer law school
who will be there until the end of
the month when they go to Ral ?
eigh to stand the bar examination.
Justice William R. Allen of the
State Supreme Court is assisting
in putting the final polish on the
young lawyers, bne of whom is a
woman, Miss Katherine Robin POD
of Fayetteville. She won the
Callaghan law prize this spring at
the University. , >
In a few days another school
will be started, a ten days' instruc
tional period for the .40 field
_ agents of the State community
service bureau nnder the direction
of W. C. Crosby; and partly over
lapping this group will come an

One change has been made ib
the late summer program at the
University. The State and Coun
ty Council, which had been sched
uled for August 17-19, has been
postponed because of a conflict of
dates with the general assembly.
When the dates were set origi
nally, it was thought th«s the
special session would convene
much sooner, and the council was
to follow. But the necessary late
session in Raleigh will keep Gov
ernor Bickett and many of the
State department heads closely in
Raleigh. > An announcement is
expected soon as to the exact date
of the council, probably late in
the fall or in the winter.
The community service work
ers, attending their first school at
the University, will find a full
program of study awaiting them
and it is expected that many other
citizens will be present to attend
the special lectures. Included in
the program are lectures by Dr.
W. H. Dudley of the University
of Wisconsin, on "Mass Educa
tion Through Visual Instruction";
by Prof. Paul J. Weaver, on
"Community Sings"; by Miss
Henrietta Hasseling of the At
lanta schools, on "Story-telling,
Plays, and Games"; and by Pro
fessors E. C. Braqson and Howard
Odum of the University.
Director Crosby of the State
bureau is in charge. A special
feature will be dn exhibition of
country home comforts and con
veniences by Professor P. H. Dag

THE ALAMANCK GLEANER.
President Harrison of Southern Will
Make Effort to Reduce Rates-
Speaking of the increase in rail
road rates in Washington on Mon
day, Fairfax Harrison, President
of the? Southern Railway System,
"The tremendous increase of
railroad rates authorized by the
Interstate Commerce Commission
seems to complete the ciitole of
Government management of the
railroad industry. It was neces
sary to carry the scale of expenses
set up by Jibe railroad administra
tion but it must cause grave con
cern as to its econoTnic conse
quences. It now remains for pri
vate management to resume the
practice of competitive f fficiencj'
and self-reliant initiative which
distinguished thd American rail
roads during so many years and
to justify the preference of the
American people for that form of
administration by making pos
sible not only the success of in
dividual companies and the pros
perity of their loyal employees
but a constant and progressive
reduction of rates accomplished
by an enlargement of service to
the publio such as may be traced
through the old fashion railroad
statistics. No one can expect this
to be accomplished over uight,
considering the practical condi
tion*, but a start can be made at
once. Relying on the co-opera
tion and support of the employees,
the management of Southern Rail
way System will make the t ffort."
Publication of "Southern Field" is
Publication of the "Soul hern
Fit Id," the magazine devoted to
the upbuilding of the South, which
was discontinued when the rail
ways were taken under federal
control, has been resumed by the
Development' Service of the South
ern Railway System and tbe Mo
bile fc Ohio Railroad. Tbe first
issue of the Southern Field, which
has just come from the press,
deals with industrial development
and will be given a wide distribu
tion among business people. It
is harftlsomely gotten up and pro
fusely illustrated. Future issues
will deal with other phases of de
velopment, but it is stated that
the two main purposes of the
magazine will be to encourage in
the South the manufacture of
finished products and a larger
participation in trade with foreign
countries. At the same time tbe
Southern Field will continue to
encourage aggressively the agri
cultural and live stock develop
ment of the South, and to aid in
the attraction of the best class of
farm settlers. %
DODSON WOULD STOP
SALE OF CALOMEL
Says Calomel la Mercury und Acts Like
Dynamite on Your
Dodson is making a bard fight
against calomel in the South.
Every druggist has noticed a great
falling off in the sale of calomel.
They all give the same reason,
Dodson's Liver Tone is taking its
"Calomel is dangerous and peo-
know it, while Dodson's Liver
Tone is perfectly safe and gives
better results," said a prominent
local druggist. Dodson's Liver
Tone is personally guaranteed by
every druggist. A large bottle
costs but a few cents, and if it
fails to give easy relief in every
case of liver sluggishness and con
stipation, you have only to ask
for your money back.
Dodson's Liver Tone is a pleas
ant-tasting, purely vegetable
harmless to both chil
dren rfrfy adults. Take a spoon
ful at night and wake UD feeling
fine; no biliousness, sick head
ache, acid stomach or constipated
bowels. It doesn't gripe or cause
inconvenience all the next day
like violent calomel. Take a dose
of calomel today and tomorrow
yoa will feel weak, sick *and
nauseated. Don't lose a day's
work! Take Dodson's Liver Tone
instead and feel fine, fall of vigor

Yet, although the French visitor*
