The late publicity ca valcade that rode through the State from the mountains to the sea was just about the biggest flash and greatest waste of public money in many a day outside the various Federal spending agen cies. Wining and dining seems to have been the biggest feature of the whole affair. In Asheville the outstanding fact was that champagne cock tails were served and “food was preceeded by drink through Eastern Carolina.’’ Such pub licity is not what North Carolina needs, but rather such as will bring the sensible and sober sort of folks to our bounds.

THINGS I NEVER NOODLE Now By W. R. Poole That elevator operators are in variably kidded about having so many ups and down in life. That muscular exercise produces lactic acid in the muscles.

Ask for WOOD’S CROP SPECIAL OUR TOWN BOARD oOo As stated sometime ago, we believe our pres ent town commissioners are doing their best to give Zebulon a good town government. It ap pears that in the past the collection of back taxes was neglected. Our present Board is doing its best to collect all such taxes. Also, we understand, they are doing their best to adjust a burdensome and embarrasing debt. The citizens of the town should give their loyal support to these men who are trying to give Zebulon a better and more economical government. oOo OUR LATE LOCAL FAIR oOo __ We suppose the type of midway features in our local fair was like those seen at other fairs of the same sort. But, a man in our office a few days ago told about going into one of these shows and seeing women as naked as Eve when fresh from the hand of her Maker.

We prefer not to express our opinion of men who patronize such places. However, we hope the town authoritis will see to it next year that such spectacles are kept out of the community. has the least to say, who says the most. That the fellow who takes on him self a tremendous amount of work is not always the smartest. That if you don't think so nobody else will.
