i A forester chanced to come my

the wonderful trees.
He replied: "Yes, they're pretty

NO UNEMPLOYMENT PROBLEM,
No Real,Job of Finding Work For the
Raleigh., N. 0.. Oct. 21.—OP)—
There is practically do unemployment
problem in North Carolina at this
While there is now, as there has al
ways been, a certain class unwilling
to Work, unless at the command of
1 necessity, and while there is a cer
| tain amount of shifting in employ
i ment—to a large extent due to a type
[ of population that is shifting by na
\ ture—there is no real problem of find
-1 ing jobs for the unemployed.
I Such is the maturely formed jndg-1
| ment of Frank D. Grist, Commission-1
| er of labor and printing. Mr. Grist
I vo’ced his opinion of the employment
[ situation in this state today, after re
cent trips over the state, both in the
eastern ami western sections, and af
ter a fdml.v of reports from the em
ployment offices in the state oyer a'
period of several weeks.
1 In most instances, the reports show
! that there are more applications for
i help than there are applicants for)
[ jobs. This is mainly confined, how-!
i ever to day labor, it was pointed out |
i at the commissioner's office.
; My attention, said ilr. Grist, is
i being given by the department to farm
1 employment than to any other branch
, of the employment service because he
i feels that, from the standpoint of the
| farmer, he is having more trouble than
i other industry getting help at a price
he can afford to iwty, and because, from
1 the standpoint of the farm laborer, he,
i as a rule, is unfitted for work in oth
i er lines of industry, and, therefore,
' must find work on the farms,
i Hence, the department has worked
i strenuously during recent weeks to,
] secure labor for the farmers of east
i ern Carolina to help harvest the eot-j
I ton crop. Hundreds of laborers from
i the Raleigh and other offices have
i been sent to the cotton fields as a re-1
’ suit of the department’s efforts,
i Two elements have contributed to]
> the disappearance of whatever unem-.
] i plo.vment there was in the state dur-l
I I ing the summer months, said Mr. |
' | Grist. The sending of large numbers ,
ij of laborers to the cotton fields has
I helped. And other element—the end
!of the long-continued drought—has
i had a big part in putting people to
! Building in this state, be pointed
) out, particularly in the western sec
[ tion of the state, where the drought
[ was worst, is a big item in the prob
i lem of keeping labor employed. There
[ |is ordinarily a tremendous amount of
( building going on in the state, and
I I that keeps thousands employed.
During the drought, however, much
I building was necessarily discontinued,
I the commissioner said. This was par
ticularly true in Asheville and that
I section. Now that the drought is ov
er, Mr. Gr ; st states, building is on
again in deadly earnest, all over the
j state, with indications of constantly
| improving business oomlititons and
less and less unemployment during
the fail months.

ANOTHER VICTORY FOR THE
LEAGUE OF NATIONS.
Versailles, with its League of Na
tions, professes to outlaw war. Since
the Treaty was adopted it has taken
persistent faith to believe that the
chief purpose would be accomplished.
There were many who raw in the
Versailles settlement little else than
such legacies of suspicion, jealousy and
hate, such insoluble problems of nat
ional security, that nothing tangible
in the way of the prevention of war
could be attained. Conferences of
one sort and another had been held
with scant achievement as the re
Then came the Locarno assembly.
Prophets of gloom and failure said
that nothing substantial could be
agreed upon there. But out of this
latest gathering of European states
men has come a series of treaties that
are regarded as providing the most
effective machinery for- preventing
war yet devised. What has occur
red at Locarno has all been within
the framework of tbe Covenant of tbe
League of Nations.
By tbe Locarno treaties, Germany
agrees never to trespass upon the soil
of France or Belgium, or make any
warlike gestures in the de-milltariaed
Rhineland area. France and Belgium
promise not to violate Germany’s
western frontiers. Should either par
ty violate the agreements, the past
provides tha. Great Britain and Italy
shall aid the injured party. The pow
ers to the pact agree to submit all
their future disputes to judicial treat
ment with the Council of the League
of Nations acting as a court.
Locarno has worked out a system
of defiinite, easily enforced individual
pledges among the nations. The
powers concerned have set out confi
ucn'.ly and w’lh bright promise to
achieve a sort of United States of
Europe. Tbe lesson of war has been
learned. Much of its cost has yet to
be met. The precipitation of another
ednflict would be suicidal. Europe
could not recover from another, war.
Locarno re-forms the rules of "in'er
power relations. Things will not go
along with a placid smoothness bpt
where before there was only the will
of two or three nations to be taken
into account in case of dispute, now
the idea of guarantees by association
with other countries exists as a check
upon precipitate action the pan
of the disputants.
The treaties of Locarno were work
ed out patiently and thoughtfully by
able representatives of the powers
concerned. There was no grandstand
enthusiasm, no pressure of an arti
ficial nature, no forced unfairness nor
involuntary yielding of advantages to
retain a meager measure of rights.
The treaty “will hasten effectively the
disarmament provided for in Article
VIII of the Covenant of the League
fhuHday, October ZZ, 1925
of Nations,” to use the language of
the preamble of the pact.
Better Alabaster Lamps of Tufa Day •
London, Oct 21.—0 P) —Whereas
tbe world is just beginning to use ala
bastar for electric lighting, the Egypt
ians 3,275 years ago made even finer
alabaster lamps than are produced to
day, Howard Carter, co-discoverer of
Tutankhamen’s tomb, said in an ad
Mr. Carter made known that in '
finding many of these lambs in the
tomb the secret of how the Egyptians
illuminated their homes was revealed.
The lamps were executed in beauti
ful designs in translucent alabaster,
and one of them stood about three
feet in height, with a large central
cup. There was no decoration on the
exterior or the interior, but immedi
ately a light was placed in the vessel
there could be seen a picture of the
young king and aueen in colors.
This effect was produced by another
vessel, with the decoration on its ex
terior, beihg fitted inside tha lamp So
