mm mbuattn W&tSv ol VOLUME XUI This , 77iaf, and The Other MRS. THEO. B. DAVIS Last Friday about mid-afternoon I stood at the edge of our front yard waiting for my son who was going to Raleigh, and I waited for some time before he came along from the shop. In the meantime my attention was held by the unusual number of cars that passed going west. Many of them bore license plates of eastern towns. At first ' it puzzled me; then I remembered the Victory Dinner scheduled for that night, and began staring at the cars and their occupants as they sped by. The went swiftly as on high em prise; eyes straight ahead, with the brave stern look of men who purge history, correct records, eat barbe cue, pledge themselves to see that the president is properly praised, count the times his name is called I in an address and boldly bang bot- I ties on tables each time they hear ■ They looked not to left nor right. ■ heir faces were steadfastly set to -1 rd Raleigh. It was impressive. THE FOUR COUNTY NEWSPAPER—WAKE, JOHNSTON, NASH AND .FRANKLIN ZEBULON. NORTH CAROLINA, FRIDAY, MARCH 19,1937. Zebulon - Rocky Mt.

March 16, 1937 Mr. T. B. Davis, Zebulon Record, 1 Zebulon, N. C. Dear Mr. Davis: Mr. Joseph Kornfeld, former U. S. Minis ter to Persia, is to be our Forum leader on the “ night of March 26. Mr. Kornfeld is not only an experienced diplomat and a keen observer of economics, and political conditions, but he is interested in the social trends of the United States, and is also a forceful speaker. Mr. Korn feld was educated in the University of Cincin nati, University of Chicago, and McGill Univer sity. He will probably talk to us on this topic, “When we are Educated”. 1 should appreciate the favor if you will give this notice as much publicity as possible. Some how I feel that this community has not waked up to the fact that this opportunity for adult in terest in education, under the direction of the type of people who are coming to our cmmunity, is one of the finest things that has ever been offered through the Wakelon School. With your ability to get things before the public in an at tractive manner. I am sure you will do all you can, and the advance notice in this week’s paper should help us greatly in getting a larger crowd for March 26. Very truly yours, E. H.

NUMBER 37 THE SWASH- M BUCKLER M ■■■■l With a supreme effort this week I take my linotype in hand and forcibly make my mind ramble on for the length of about sixty-four or more ems. I am greatly afraid that if this week’column had to be set by hand, my hand, it would not be sat. For nearly five years I have at the last minute, with no malice aforethought, seated myself at the same machine and without copy or thought (as has been easily dis cerned ) set enough to 'fill the re quired space. I really don’t see why sensible people have put up with it when, after all is said and done, they have a place with padded walls in Raleigh for people like me. I just suppose I’ll keep writing this col umn until some public-spirited in dividual blows out my gray matter. The legislature over Raleigh way greatly reminds me of the way this column is conducted. Anything that comes up is okay, just so long as it doesn’t come up on an empty stomach. I can easily understand how they can get a couple of drinks under their belt and say yes to any thing We who have little or no brains are all that way. The legislative positions in this state don’t pay enough to really in terest highly intelligent business men who understand the workings of the law-machine. There are a few philanthropists like John Sprunt Hill, of Durham who give their time for the fun, the name, of something else. E*ut tak ing the general run, they aren’t any more capable of making laws for the good of the people than you or me or any other person who hasn’t made a study of the social sciences. I believe that the reason there are fewer lawyers this year in the House and Senate is because busi ness conditions have improved to tha 4 they can make more money in the lawyer business than the law-making business. I should be glad to vote for any man, regardless of name who would do his best to away with all laws which had been Introduced by some representative who thought that introducing lots of bills would make his voters, think he was “do ing something.” The only things most representatives do are the voters- This week’s column is dedicated to the Legislature without reason, and to “Mister” Billy Pippin for sentimental reasons. Sincerely, The Swashbuckler. Legislahator.
