"COU SEISE" IS
Secretary of Navy Touches
On Discussion of Bible and
Evolution In Address at
Is Great Need of Day, the
and Nature Must Be Con
(Sly the Associated Press)
Durham, June 10.—Some of the ques
tions involved in diseusionß of the Bible
and evolution were touched upon by Sec
retary Wilbur of the Navy Department,
in a prepared commencement address to
day at Duke I'niversity on the subject of
Hp quoted as his text “If any man lack
wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth
abundantly and upbraideth not, and ! .t
shall be given him.” In appealing for
application of common sense to many of
the problems -of life,” Mr. Wilbur said,
"we need common sense in religion."
“If the Bible is the inspired word of
God, as we believe,” he added, “then He
created the universe and left the record
of that creation inscribed forever upon
all created things. There are at least
two divine books, the Holy Bible, on whose
pages are inscribed the doings and say
ings of holy men, and the book of nnture.”
A part of this historical story is plain
ly written upon the geological strata
which circumcise the globe. Common
sense suggests that these two records be
considered together, and that to reject and
utterly ignore either is equally foolish.
Science today, whatever else it may
have accomplished, has demonstrated that
the universe is constructed on a plan, and
has been created according to laws which
will operate daily.
“These results not only suggest, but they
demand a planner and a Creator and Law
Giver. Reason cannot go so far as to
discover these laws and plans and create
things without,going a itep further to
the Creator, <fl«fcorning some of -his at
tritflites by the things He has done.”
B<i«Cgger» of PacWe Develop Craft
<By the Associated Press!
Spokane, Wash., June 10.—The lat
est strategy of bootleggers of this local
ity, the civil authorities declare,. is to
hire some person suffering from chronic
illness to market their wares. Then
when the peddler conies before a court,
the plea is made that he has no money
and that a jail sentence would mean sure
“Within the last three weeks there
have been at least four cases of this
kind tried before me,” declared Police
Justice Fred Morrill. “The defendant
even had a physician take the witness
fctand and testify that it might mean
death for the accused if be should be
compelled to serve time in jail.”
Deputy Prosecutiug Attorney Louis
Bunge corroborated the judge’s state
ment. "Bootleggers that I have pros
ecuted during the last month have claim
ed to be the victims of every disease
from barber’s itch to galloping consump
tion.” he said. “The man who is caught
with the liquor in his possession usually
is undnersized. and pleads for the courts
to give him a chance to get out into the
country ami regain his health.”
But the mystifying feature of the sit
uation is that the convicted boolegger
rarely remains in jail more than a few
days even if a heavy fine is imposed,
the officers, state. The money to pay
his fine and effect his liberation always
is forthcoming from some source, which
they belive to be the employing bootleg-

Asheville Lakes Without Charms for the
Asheville, June 10. —Although artificial
lakes have been built abound Asheville
and others are projected for the future,
there need be no fear from mosquitoes
by reason of these bodies of water, in
the opinion of Dr. Dan E. Sevier, city
health official, who declares that the
city’s health is unusually good at the
present time and bids fair to continue to
the fullest with the health department.
With the approach of warm weather
and t.he crowded summer season and due
to the fact that lakes are becoming more
popular as places of public attraction,
the question naturally arises as to wheth
er or not the mosquito will follow in the
wake of the silvery surfaces of the made
to order lake.
But Asheville, says the health depart
ment head, is not a mosquito city in the
first place because of the high altitude
and the dryness of the amosphere being
conducive to the drying qp of stagnant
pools of water’ or mosquito breeding
places. The new lakes, he says, can
never become mosquito breeding plareß
because the water is constantly in mo
tion by reason of the spillways over the
dams and the water itself is constantly
changing and continually fresh. Unless
weeds and debris are allowed to areu-|
mutate around the edges of the artificial
bodies of water there is little liklihood
of the smallest mosquito breeding home
being established, Dr. Sevier says.
