NOT A BAD IDEA
From the Snapshooter’s column in The
Charlotte News we clipped the item following.
King Haygler’s way of controlling drunks has
certain permanent features that are worth con
sidering when all else fails. However, if given
time, most of those who drink to excess put
themselves under the ground.
The chiefs of the Catawba nation and
officials of the state of North Carolina met
at Salisbury May 25, 1756, for a conference
over certain treaties . . . And at the confer
ence King Haygler, of the Indian nation,
made this request of the state representa
tives: “I desire a stop may be put to the
selling of strong liquors by the white people
to my people. ... If the white people must
make strong drink let them sell it in their
own families.. . I have no strong prisons like
you to confine them for it. Our only way
is to put them under ground.”
Gurney P. Hood, Commissioner of Banks in
North Carolina in an address in Atlanta stated
that we do not need more banks, but rather a
consolidation of those in existence. He is said
to have intimated that the chief cause of so many
failures in the depression was due to the many
small banks. Our recollection seems to be that
some of the biggest banks we had went under.
The striving after big things is a dangerous ten
dency in business. Only a few years ago strin
gent laws with “teeth in them” were passed to
curb the growth of big corporations. But times
do change! The state and government are into
big things—big schools, big departments of
every sorts. Our opinion is that we have too
much bigness in our public affairs.
A small bank well managed should be as
safe as a big one. Locally Zebulon’s little bank
failed as much because of poor management as
any other thing. Loaning thousands of dollars
with almost no security, the directors giving it
no financial support, a fracfion of the directors
actively operating the institution—all these con
tributed to its failure. The character of the di
rectors and the conservative management of the
bank’s affairs have more to do with its success
than bigness or anything else.
WHO WAS HE?
A gentleman told us about a phone call he
had the other night. He said he was sitting in
his home about 9:00 o’clock when his phone
rang. Answering it, he heard some one say:
“Who the h . . . are you?” He replied that he
was a higher type man than the one who would

address him thus on the phone and that if he
must use such language he should choose a lower
class person to address in keeping with his own
character. This man seemed to be wrought up
considerably by being so addressed in his home.
And who could blame him?
A younger man, in speaking of the incident,
said that probably 90 per cent of the men of
Zebulon use such language. We hardly think
there are so many. Yet we know a number of
men who are members in good standing intheir
churches who unhesitatingly use profanity in
any place among men. We doubt very much
their good standing with the Lord and also be
ing considered even gentlemen by those whose
speech is clean, when they indiscriminately use
RESERVE FORCES OF CHARACTER
As in business so in society, one lays up
capital that meets the stress and strain of de
pression or suspicion. We are thinking of the
young man tried in court last week for drunken
driving and who came out fully vindicated be
cause of his previous life as testified to by those
who knew him best. His life from childhood so
far as we know has been exemplary. With this
reserve it was impossible to convict him of the
charge. Had he been addicted to drink, previous
ly, even the testimony of many witnesses would
have been unconvincing to the public at least.
Once we heard of a serious charge against
a prominent man. Almost every one readily de
clared “I’ll never believe he is guilty till I know
it.” The “rainy day” morally may come as it
does financially with most of us. Each should
see that a good deposit of conduct and deeds is
laid up in public opinion for the possible day of
need. Back of the reputation must be character
and backing character must be convictions. It
behooves young and old to “lay up treasures” on
earth. If one does not need them here, they will
enrich him in the beyond.
A good reputation is good, but a good char
acter is better.
“THE TOWN BEAUTIFUL”
Zebulon is not a city and makes no pre
tensions to that claim. But it is a good town, one
that is known throughout the state. Carl Goerch
says it has one of the most beautiful streets of
any town he knows. There is ilttle reason why
every street might not be beautiful. Quite a
deal of building and remodelling are going on
in the community these days. While carpenter
tools and paint add much to the appearances of
things, we believe there is something else that
adds more to the geenral appearance of a town
than even those things.
Shrubbery and seed cost very little. We
have native bushes and trees that are abundant
and beautiful. The bay is an evergreen and has
beautiful flowers. Red bud, or Judas trees, are
plentiful a few miles away. Why not plant bay
and red bud? Neither grows very tall and would
not interfere with phone and electric wires as
maple and oak would.
Then we have a varied assortment of the
more hardy flowers for the yard that cost little
and require little attention. Every yard might
have these with small money outlay and a min
imum of labor. There is plenty of time to pre
pare and plant flowers. We hope those who read
this will not only join with us in planting trees
and flowers, but also insist on their neighbors
doing so. Make Zebulon a more beautiful place
in which to live.
