■Rations Ask Germany to Join

Aug. 26.—France und
allies have invited Germany to
into negotiations for a definite
intruded to guarantee an end- |
■p'liW era of peace in western Europe.
I pp The invitation was extended in a
K mote handed to the German govern- i
Bfdfcet by the French ambassador at j
[m. Berlin Monday and made pub'ic in
various capitals tonight. It is a
to Germany's note of July 20 j
R od the subject of security.

p mon with their allies, confine them
g' selves to 5 observations on on y tnree

State lenders of the Baptist de

marked decrease in the contributions

I The French note to which the
j Germains dispatched their reply this
evening, observed that the German
• government twice had drawn atten
| tion to “the eventual possibility of
(concluding agreements under which
existing treaties might be adapted
to changed circumstances" nnd that
the Gorman government also sug
gests the hypothesis of modification
of conditions of th’e Rhineland oc

gestions the French in effect, have
replied that nothing can be done.
The French note points out that the
covenant is primarily grounded on
serupu'ous respect for treaties, which
form “the basis of the public law of
Europe” and declares that France
and her allies consider that the Ver
sai les treaty rights which Germany,
as well asthe allies possess under it,
“must not be impaired.” nor the
provisions for the application'"of the
Stands on Rights.
“However liberal the spirit, how
ever pacific the intentions with which
France is ready to pursue the pres
ent negotiations," says the note, "she
cannot surrender her rights. And it
is for this reason that the French
note of June 16 specified that a
security pact could not affect the
provisions of the treaty relative to
the occupation of the Rhineland, nor
the execution of the conditions laid
down in relation thereto in the
As for Germany's entry into the
league, the note asserts that “it is
the only solid basis for a mutual
agreement and a European peace.”
FORD AND THE FARMER.
1 Henry Ford’s dream of substituting
a synthetic milk-machine for the old
fashioned “bossy cow” is not new, but
he has recently renewed his talk
5 ab ut it and in the expression of his
r views he has been led into saying
come things which will scarcely in
-1 crease his popularity among the farm
In a recent interview, after repeat
ing his prophecy that “some one will
invent away to make milk synthetic
?. ally” and thus obviate the necessity
‘ of bothering about cows at all, he was
* | asked how it would be possible to
; j keep up soil fertility without the
*: fertilizer produced by farm animals.
; His answer to that was “commercial
- fertilizers.” and when it was sug
gested that it is not always eeonom
ical for a farmer growing genera'
crops to buy such things, Mr. Ford
' is quoted as saying: “It will be in
the future. Farms will be largers and
J they will be run moire systematically.
The little farmers will have to go.
1 They are back numbers. Why do we
need farmers, anyway?” Mr. Ford
• himself immediately realized that this
I was saying a trifle too much, so he
hastened to remark that one need not!
give up living in the country, if one I
I iued tha. short of thing, but one need
| not devote all one’s ttime to faming.
J Then Mr. Ford said the most sig
i nificant thing in his interview: “In
dustry is moving out into the country
districts It is better not to have
• too much centralization. Some of
■ the best workmanship that goes into
' the Ford car is done in the little
waterpower plants that we have up
the River Rouge. A good many farm
people work in these plants. There
will be more and more of that sort
of thing.” So that’s the idea! Mr.
Fi rd. to make this country 100 per
cent, efficient, would abolish agricul
ture entirely, if necessary. It would
, be a grand thing if he could have
j the farm folk working for him not
i n y part but a’l of the time. He
wants a standardized world, but
: t.,:tiven help that world if his hopes
I - ou’d confe to complete fruition. It
is true that the farmer's life is usua.-
y au ardut us one and that often it
j has more than its share of hard
ships ; but there are compensations.
; arid the chief of these is the spirit of
j independence that comes to one who
wrests his living from the soil and
lin his own master. There are other
things which Mr. Ford will never be
I ab.e to synthetize, the beautites of :
, nature, for instance, in the changing
seasons. These are things of which 1
p- cts have sung in all ages, and of ’
which Sir Aubrey de Vere in his son- 1
net on “Independence” said: i
“Are there no flowers on earth in
heaven ne stars.
That we must place in such low things i
our trust?” j

TRY W. a COLE FOR MURDER
AT SPECIAL TERM OF COURT
Governor Calls Special Term of Rich
mond County on September 28th.
Raleigh News and Observer.
W. B. Cole, rich Rockingham mill
owner, will be brought to trial for
the murder of W. TV. Ormond, former
sweetheart of Cole’s daughter, at a
special term of the Richmond County
Superior Court called by Governor
McLean yesterday for the week be
ginning September 28th. No judge
has yet been designated by Governor
McLean to preside over the term.
Governor McLean stated that he
was not calling a special term for
the trial of Cole but was merely com
plying with the statute ahd calling
the term at the request of P. A. Me-
Elroy and Solicitor Don Phillips.
“I will not designate any judge at
the suggestion of either side,” Gov
ernor McLean said, however, when
asked about the Cole case. “I (bean
no reflection on Solicitor Phillips. I
told him that I would not and he
agrees with me.”
Governor McLean stated that he has
the highest regard for Judge T. J.
Shaw, of Greensboro, who was sug
gested by Solicitor Phillips.
Judge M. V. Barnhill, of Rocky
Mount, is the only judge on the Su
perior Court bench who has a vacant
week during the week beginning Sep
tember 28th. He has just finished
five straight weeks of court and this
week is the only vacant week for him
between now and Christmas.
Governor McLean can appoint some
lawyer from another county as an
emergency judge to hold the term or
he may call upon the emergency
judges. Judge Oliver H. Allen anil
Judge George H. Brown to hold the
Judge William A. Hoke, former
Chief Justice of the Cupreme Court,
was asked by the governor yesterday
if he would hold the term. Judge
Hoke stated that he was afraid that
on account of some treatment which
he must take for his health he would
’ not be able to do so.
Governor McLean expressed his re
gret that the former chief justice,
who is now an emergency judge,
could not bold the court.
A Timely Warning.

The section has been fortunate in

Fight Canvassing Evil.
Editor and Publisher.
House-to-house canvassing ha 6 be
come a vexatious problem in many
cities. One correspondent of Editor
A Publisher advises us that possibly
forty per cent of household furnishing
sales are in some localities door yard
trades, as against sixty per cent, with
local retailers. Canvassers travel ov
er the country, employing temporary
assistants and by intensive drives
place hundreds of thousands of dol
lars’ worth of goods. Some of the
practice is extremely shady. i

as unfavorable to the interests of the 1

A campaign of twenty-seven adver- *

are made: The out-of-town concern 1

his “guarantees” are meaningless
The price argument is no sound, be
cause the agent’s commission often
exceeds the total mark-up of the re
liable local retailer. The out-of-town
dealer does not contribute propor
tionately to the taxes of the commun

never build a city. To make a sale

FINDS THAT GOBSIP 18 '
SMALL TOWN NKWB
Student Makes Call to Find Out
What la Talked Os.
X. E. A. Service Paper,
Gossip absorbs village women.
Miss Dorothy B. Chester, a student
at the sAool of journalism. University
of Illinois, found this to be true when
she casually called on residents of
small towns in Ilinois.
She made these visits primarily to
find out what interested the women.
Os eighty-eight women whose con
versations were recorded, the majority
were mature women with the equiva
lent of high school education, living
near, or in, a small town.
"Local excitement and gossip were
the source of the largest discussions,"
says Miss Chester, whose visits
brought her to the homes at various
hours of the day.
“Did yon hear about Jennie May's
little boy? He broke his arm,” or
"You know this man downtown that
works in the shoe store? Jim says
he was so drunk last night he bad to
be taken home.''
“If you move on to another group
of women you will hear them discuss
ing a recent fire or perhaps a robbery
or the death of some one in the vil
Bobbed Hair a Worry.
“The women In small towns realise
they are slow in keeping in style and
so it is a continual worry whether
bobbed hair is going out of style or
“Visitors in small towns are al
ways talked about and new residents
are a great topic of discussion from
the time their furiture arrives.
“In the small town and on the farm
the crops are of a great interest. The
women are equall as interested as the
“Illness is talked about by a cer
tain type of people in both the city
and the smaller community, but in
the little town it is not talked of as
a complaint only but as news.
“Radios have become a general top
ic of discussion and especially among
those who have them, or those who
are thinking of buying one.
Os Vital Interest.
"Household inventions, receipts and
patterns for dresses are of vital in
terest to most women. Any woman
who knows of a new washing machine
that saves labor and time describes it
fully to her negihbors and friende.
s “Societies, work and worry, finan
cial conditions, shopping tours, poli
tics. poultry and hard roads are dis-
. cussed in a like manner.
“The outstanding thing that I found
was that these people in the small
| community do not discuss the movies
or dramatic art. They do not have
the opportunity to see good plays and
movies unless they go to town.
“They talk of more serious things
than the women of the cities and they
talk of the things going on around
them for they do not have interests
that are varied.
“City people are not so intimate
and they all have different interests,
so that herein lies the greatest differ
eat-e m the discussions of the two
types of women.”
The report from Catawba College
which was published in the Post yes
terday morning is most gratifying. If
' there have been any who were dis
posed to doubt the school's being ready
■ for an opening on the date set they
ought to read the facts and be satis
fied. If not the college , ! .s close by.
Now we would say that the general
| interest in the college ought to help
to fill it with students. No doubt the
opening will be most gratifying; re
ports indicate as much, but every
friend of the college ought to lend a
hand and see that Catawba gets eon
; sideration from many boys and girls
| wishing to get through school.
Catawba ought to aid many a boy
and girl from this immediate section
; to get a college education. Four years
jof college life moans quite an item
in cost these days and a good many
boys and girls of bright mind and am
bitions to go forward are finding it
mighty hard and in some cases impos
sible. With Catawba at the door
many Rowan boys and girls who
might not be able to make it else
where will find the opportunity at
; their doors. And Catawba has a his
tory of good and faithful work, a rec
ord that dates back through the
years, and there is no reason why that
good and faithful work should not
continue, not only continue but grow
larger and more assuring.
Dr. Hoke tells us that everything at
Catawba will be ready for two weeks
in advance of the day of open’ng and
these two weeks ought to find many
boys and girls in Rowan making ready
for embracing the opportunity.

County Jeffersonian learned that a so- *
licitor was getting up a program for '
church gerviees which would contain, 1 1
besides the program for the services 1 1
advertising of merchants similar to '
that used in theater programs. The l
stunt moved him to remark thusly:

stomach's sake’ is a possibility. A i
butcher’s ad. beside the story of the '
fatted calf fanild be appropriate.
