ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCHES VOLUME XXV A Big Opportunity Is Offered In Our Great Subscription Campaign Your Nomination Is But the Starting Point the First Step in the Work That Is Before You. THE FIRST VOTE COUNT TODAY AH Subscriptions Received Up to Last Night Appear in the Count in the Page Ad. Today. The notice of each and every con testant ; x called to tlie published list of candidates. If there is any one who has entered the race and hie or her name does not appear, please notify the campaign department immediately. Furthermore if any contestant is list ed in the wrong district, the campaign . management would appreciate it if would advise them of the error. Each and every contestant MUST be listed in his or her own district. Nominations are NOT closed. In fact, today there are more prises than there are active candidates. Oppor tunity without a handicap is here to day for new entries who will "carry on" in The Tribune and Times $lO,- 000 automobile cash campaign. The small list published elsewhere in this issue today must not be mis understood. Some of the names print ed are just nominations. The list only serves to show who is entered. Some who have been nominated have failed, so fur, to turn in one single solitary subscription to The Tribune or Times. Some have not even called to get an official receipt book. They are. so far, candidates in name only, nothing more. .Subscriptions Will Win. Candidates who will not produce subscriptions can not hope to win. The more subscriptions you can pro duce, the more votes you earn. The free coupons appearing in The Trib une and Times from day to day are valuable only in the degree in which you enhance your vote score by sub scriptions. There is absolutely no hope in coupons alone. Coupons are printed primarily to stimulate interest. Os course they do have soms value, but it is questionable when ouei-considers that one subwvtp tloii alone offsets a whole bundle of coupons. Nominations But Start. Simple nomination of a candidate does not mean anything. The date does not mean anything. The nomi nation is but the first step, the start ing point. An.voue content to rest after nomination can not get far in this election. Active work, honest ef fort, constant attention to the buxi ness in hand, and that alone can get r votes. And votes win. And subscrip- tions mean votes. With so few candidates entered, and so many of those not yet, at least, manifesting any LIFE or ACTIVITY, the opportunity is here for some live ones to enter and “carry on” to win. In fact, the more candidates enter ed the less votes it will take to win. If two candidates are running for office they must have all the votes be tween them. The winner must have a majority—over half—of all the votes cast. But if five candidates seek the same office the winner only needs to have more votes than the nert higher candidate. Then, too, in this campaign, "Ev erybody Wins Something,” There are four beautiful enclosed automo biles. There are purses of silver to taling over a thousand dollars. Then, too, remember the cash commission of 10 per cent., paid on every dollar turned in, to all active non-prize win ners. In an election for office but one candidate wins. In this election, "Ev erybody Wins.” YOU WIN. To Candidates. The first vote count of each candi date entered appears today. AH sub scriptions received up to 0 o'clock last night appear in the count. . Fruit In Avery County of Good Qual ity. Newland, N.

Portland, Ore., Sept. 22.—The an nual communication of the Sovereign Grand Lodge of the Independent Or der of Odd Fellows will be held in Portland this week. The sovereign I grand lodge is composed of several hundred representatives of the grand - lodges of the order in the different ( states, in the provinces of Canada. ' and in several foreign countries. Aux iliary organizations will meet during the week. These include the Re . bekali assembly and the Patriarchs militant. The annual parade and i tht military ball will be two of the . big features on the week’s program. Delegatefs to the gathering are al ready arriving in the city and it is ; estimated that fully 50,000 members | of the order will be here for the for . mal opening of the conclave today. Founded in 1810, in Baltimore, by , Thomas Wildey and four others, the Independent Order of Odd Fellows has become one of the greatest fraternal eocitties in the world. It is purely an American institution, more than 75 per cent of the present total mem bership of more than 2.000,00 being residents of the United States and Canada. In recent years tht order has extended its jurisdiction to other countries, and now its ritual is print- j ed in eight languages. While the Independent Order of ■ Odd, Fellows is purely an American organization. Odd Fellowship originat ed in England. The actual origin of the order, however. Is obscure. The earliest lodge of whirfi there is any record was the Loyal Aristraehus, which met in London in 1745. To this source may be traced the Man chester Unity, which is the name un der which the great English order is known. Manchester Unity was es tablished in 181.1, and is now the largest fraternal society in the world. The actual origin of the name of Odd Fellows is as obscure as the foundation of the order. One theory is that originally they were called "hod fellows" (masons' laborers), and another that they were “God’s fel lows.” It has been suggested, too, that the name was bestowed upon the 1 brethren because of the strangeness Ind It was on April 26. 181!), that Thomas Wildey and his four asso ciates met in the tavern of William Lupton. known as "The Seven Stars,” in Baltimore, and founded the first lodge, which was given the name of "Washington Lodge of Odd Fellows.” All five of the founders bad been af filiated with the order in England, and they obtained a charter from thp Duke of York's lodge of the Manches ter Unity, Preston, England. This original charter was surround ed on February 22, 1821, when “The Grand Lodge of Maryland and of the United States of America of the In dependent Order of Odd Fellowsship” was organized. The name of tbe grand lodge was changed in 1825 to "The Grand Lodge of the United States of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows,” and again, in 1870, to "The Sovereign Grand Lodge of the Independent Or der of Odd Fellows,” by which title it has sinee been known. For twelve years after the found ing of the order Mr. Wildey continued to serve as Grand Master (the title being changed to Grand Sire in 1826), and in 1835 he was made a traveling agent of tbe Grand Lodge in tbe United States. It is stated of his organizing work in every section of the country that “he had faith in man's reciprocity of affection, he had a firm belief in the brotherhood of all, and absolute confidence in the great scheme of fraternity to arouse and give expression to those generally re pressed emotions of friendship and love.” Mudi of the present magni tude of the order Is atttributed to his zealous missionary work. No Conflict Between Science and Re ligion. Charlotte, Sept. 21.—The time has come when the so-called “conflict be tween science and religion” must end said Rt. Rev. E. A. Penlck, of Char lotte, bishop coadjutor of the Episco pal diocese of North Carolina, speak ing before the Churchmen’s Club of the Church of the Holy Comforter, at the home of J. M. Reardon, in Myers Park. There is really no conflict, Bishop l Penick said, for both science and re ligion are working toward the great truth of life. Science is descriptive and religion interprets life, was the main thought of his discourse, and both operate in two different spheres and supplement each other in the search for the great truth. Bishop Penick went into the sub ject, which be said is a great ques tion of the day, thoroughly, and ex plained that his address was prepared after study and deliberation. Leonard Seriously Hurt.

George Symuk, fireman of the lumber yard was arrested in connection with the woman’s death. The police said they believe she had been plnced in the furnace alive. Patrolman William Merrick, hear ing a woman’s screams coming from the lumber yard investigated. As he scrambled over ttoe piles of lumber the screnmx ceased. Merrick found Symuk near the fur nace. but he denied that a woman was 'on the premises. As Merrick began to question Symuk fled, and Merrick | fired his revolver. The shot was heard 1 by two other patrolmen, who caught the fireman and took him back to the furnace room. Tile officers found Mrs. Poleski's body inside the furnace, the door of which had been closed, and a shovel propped against it.

Symuk told the police that the woman often visited him at the yard, and that she once threatened to poison him. When she brought him two bottles of wine early this morning he suspected that she had placed poison in the wine. He said he beat her over the head with a bottle, and then carried her body from an office in the main building to the furnace room.

Sept. 22.—M0. tion pictures with bugs composing the entire east have been completed by the cinema laboratory of the depart ment of agriculture. In eontrnst to the usual productions, with their he roes and heroines, these pictures fea ture only villains. In one film the Calosoma beetle plays the lead, chasing a gypsy motto, decapitating it and then dragging it to its lair.

Sept. 22.—The fact up held in a decision by a southern Su preme court that catfish can, when there is urgent necessity or inclina tion, travel over dry land, found further . substatiation today in the claim of Nick Lowrey that a whole colony of Duplin county “cats” mi ' grated from small creek to a slough j i more than 50 yards away, i Lowrey said the upper reaches of j the creek dried up last week under I , the days of a hot sun. The drought ■ was causing small streams through- i * out the section to go dry. With the j water only a few inches deep. | scores of fish, many of them “cats.” struggled for life. Negro farm hands j caught large numbers. Catfish were] plentiful in the muddy water on a morning in the middle of the week. That afternoon at 4 o'clock there was not a representative of the species left in the creek. The following day Lowrey found a small tributary of the creek, in which fish had never beep seen be fore, “literally alive with catfish.” | Dammed at all times by a fallen trees trunk, the mouth of the branch at the time was further blocked by a mud flat. Having no outlet, the water in the branch was considerably deep er than that in the creek. The Fetzers Drive Tar Heel Eleven at Gruelling Gait. Chapel Hill.

THE TRIBUNE J PRINTS TODAY’S NEWS TODAY NO. 228 Secretary of Navy Thittks Department of National Defense)Would Be Great Mistake for the Country. ' PRESENT SERVICE IS NOT SO BAD So Far As Naval Air Serv ice is Concerned Mr. Wfl? j ber Would Leave It As i It Is At Present. Washington, Sept. 22.— UP) —Main- K tenance of the navy air service or- J ganization in substantially its pres* a ent form was advanced today by See* yj retary Wilbur before the President’s air lion nl. Called as the first witness of the S day by the board which yesterday in--8 quired into the policy of the war de partment and the navy air service, j Mr. Wilbur emphatically opposed the j creation of a department of national defense. Such a step, he declared, | | would be a “well nigh irreparable mis- 3 take.” “Air forces,” he asserted, “form *»;! essential part of the fabric of tfcfc'jb navy itself and its administration like all administrative problems inter nal to the navy will, if unmolested by outside influences, be solved with the same efficiency and with the same hap. ■ py results as has been obtained in similar problems ill the past." The Secretary likewise expressed opposition to establishment of the navy air service as a separate corps, analogous to the marine corps. H« declared against a single air maintained for national defense, but not under the army or navy. The navy, he said, requires its own "j air forces as “a vital element of a naval battle” adding that if a “vital ly component part of the navy is un der the direction and authority of an independent air service it removes jS from the naval coiqmander that unity "i of command in time of battle, and that uniformity of training in time of peace, which every war has proved to be essential to victory.” The Secretary assured the board that “all the information in the pos- 8 session of the Navy Department or any of its officers desired by you is 1 at your disposal.” "We wish.” he said, “to present <the matters involved, * in the fullest and fairest manner pos- 8; siplr-by those moat- fully give the information.” The Secretary then launched into a discussion of the technical relation ‘of - the air service to other military arms. “The mission of the army and navy in peace or war,” he said, “is to sup-, port and defend the national policies.- The army and navy operate under spe- » citie missions in each.” PRESIDENT AWAITS ACTION BY CONGRESS Before Doing Anything to Get Coun try Represented at League of Na tions Conference.
